A Review of Skincare Villa Shop Facial Oil.

Until recently I was among those who get scared to use oils on their combination to oily skin. I would believe that oil did make my face major breakout. But now I have been slowly introducing facial oils in my beauty routine. One such oil, I’m going to talk about today is a facial oil from the brand Skincare Villa Shop.




Some Facts About Facial Oils:

  • The plant-based facial oils with loads of antioxidant, vitamins and nutrients give good hydration, nourishment, providing a healthy skin.
  • The oils get absorbed and start working into the skin more quickly than the creams do. The creams just create a moisture layer on the top.
  • In the acne-prone skin, oils balance the sebum production of the skin and helps the skin’s own oil flow instead of clogging.

The Facial Oil from Skincare Villa Shop:

Now, let’s start with the review of the facial oil from Skincare Villa Shop. I ordered this facial oil when I saw Sonali, the person behind Skincare Villa Shop introduced Coffee Infused Oil and Green Tea Infused Oil on Instagram. She has customized this facial oil according to my skin type.





Grapeseed oil, Coffee infused oil, Green Tea infused oil, Almond Seed Oil and Rosemary Essential oil. 

Coffee Infused Oil with antioxidant and caffeine fights free radicals, keeps the aging at bay, tightens and brightens the skin, reduces dark circles.

Green Tea Infused Oil reduces wrinkles and fine lines, removes blemishes and any spots, like acne scars, age spots, treats dark circles and puffy eyes, providing glowing skin.

Almond Seed Oil deep cleanses skin and prevents acne, removes tan, treats eczema, psoriasis, skin rashes, provides flawless skin, reduces signs of aging.

Grapeseed Oil restores collagen, fights aging, treats acne, tightens skin, helps diminish dark circles around eyes.

Rosemary Oil protects skin from the damage caused by free radicals and the sun rays, stimulates the cell growth to fight aging, treats any kind of skin infections.

Price: INR 350/- for 30 ml, including shipping.


The golden brown colored oil comes in a dark brown colored glass bottle with a dropper dispenser. On the outer part of the bottle, the logo of Skincare Villa Shop is pasted.



My Experience:


The oil has a thin but refined texture with a very mild smell that only you get as you open the bottle. When you apply on your face you can’t smell it. It’s a mixed fragrance of all the oils in which the smell of coffee is a bit strong. The oil is very light and I don’t feel greasy or sticky on my skin. It’s absorbed immediately after applying on the face and neck. I use it as under eye oil too. The oil doesn’t leave my combination to oily skin oily too, rather it gives an instant glow to my face.




I’ve been using the oil almost for one and a half weeks. I use the oil at the bedtime as my night nourishment. I apply 3 drops on my cleansed face and the under eye area and 4 drops on the neck. One must shake well the bottle before using.

First of all, this oil has reduced much my open pores, giving me a polished look. You know, open pores happen due to extra oil production during this wet weather. The open pores bring with it acne and blemishes that result in the dull and lifeless skin. This facial oil is the medicine of all these problems. The oil delivers a much-needed skin pampering experience that leaves me feeling relaxed, soothed and recharged. So, I must say that this skin rejuvenating oil worth every penny.

Finally, I strongly recommend you who are tired of seeing your pale and sagging face, to give it a go and the best thing is you can add ingredients as per your choice and need to this oil. So, DM Sonali on the Instagram page and get this wonderful oil.

Get Flawless Skin with Sunscreen Matte Gel SPF 30 ft FuschiaVKare

Today I’m going to share the new sunscreen lotion I am using and am totally sold, that is Sunscreen Matte Gel SPF 30 from one of my favorite brand Fuschia by VKare Bio Sciences. Sun protection is the most important measure in our daily skin care routine to prevent aging, wrinkles, age spots, and other skin concerns and the biggest risk factor for our life, skin cancer. But, unfortunately, many of us are not serious about using sunscreen lotion. We may spend lots of money buying expensive creams, lotions or going salons for facials and all. But, when there comes the question of sunscreen lotion, we just neglect it. You must remember that even a 2 min sun exposure, may result in an adverse effect of sun rays on one’s skin. And the sunscreen you will use must have an SPF of at least 30 and indicates protection against UVA and UVB. This sunscreen gel I am going to review now has fulfilled both the criteria. Let’s start the review.




Fuschia Sunscreen Matte Gel – SPF 30: UVA & UVB Protection:

I have received this sunscreen gel in a Lady Raga Subscription Bag. 

Product Description:

The polluted environment and global warming are making our skin dull and unappealing and giving our skin pre-mature aging. To get the flawless and healthy glowing skin, pick up Fuschia paraben and phthalate free Sunscreen Matte Gel SPF 30. The product is not tested on animals. This sunscreen matte gel gets absorbed into the skin instantly and protects adequately from UVA & UVB rays.





Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, SunCat DE, Licorice Ext, Glycereth 8 Esters, Euxyl K 510, Carbomer. 

The blend of aloe vera, olive oil, and licorice ext are perfect to harmonize your skin and to protect against sun-induced skin damage. Aloe vera and olive oil cure the damage caused by sun’s rays & can treat sunburn as easily as it can slow down the aging of the skin. SunCatDE acts as the sunscreen agent, antioxidant, anti-aging and protecting agent.




Price: INR 450/- for 50 ml.



The gel comes in a sturdy white plastic bottle with a black flip top lid that enables us to use it economically. You can take out as much as you need. The bottle is lightweight and you can carry it wherever you go.




My Experience:


It is a light mousse-like gel with a sweet floral scent that is not very strong but quite refreshing. Smelling the gel you will love to use it. It spreads easily on the skin and gets absorbed immediately and completely after a little massage. Though the gel is a bit thick doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, rather feels comfortable enough on the skin. It doesn’t give any matte finish but leaves my combination to oily skin oil-free for a longer period. Like some other sunscreen gel, it doesn’t leave any white cast on the face.




The sunscreen gel provides adequate hydration and moisturization to the skin. I need not apply any moisturizer separately. The gel can be applied as a nice primer for the day makeup. I’ve been using the gel for almost 2 weeks, but it didn’t cause any irritation or breakouts to my acne-prone skin. It gives a good 5 hourly sun protection and also protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays.


Overall, I am quite happy with the sunscreen matte gel and wish to repurchase after finishing the bottle. I recommend you to buy the gel and use adequately to get a flawless and radiant look. You can buy from their Website  and Flipkart

A Review: First Bud Organics Tulsi Green Tea and Slim Bud Green Tea.

Honestly speaking, I was not in green tea some time back. But when First Bud Organics sent me their green teas for review, I had to pick up my cup of green tea and now, there’s no looking back. My mornings now start with green tea. Green tea is now becoming very popular with its ability to increase immunity and to protect us from various diseases, especially from that dreadful disease, cancer. Not only that it has benefits on our skin too. Let’s start with the products now. Before that I want to say a few words about First Bud Organics.

The products they offer are grown naturally and free from harmful chemicals. They work very closely with their partners and manufacturers to ensure that every product is genuinely natural and is of the highest quality. First Bud is a step towards a fit and healthy lifestyle.

They have sent me two types of tea Tulsi Green Tea and Slim Bud Green Tea.





Both the tea have come with same tin cylindrical container with an inner foil in which the tea leaves come in. On the outer part of the container every details about the brand and the products are printed. The lid of the container is tightly set with an inner plastic protection. The packaging is user-friendly & travel-friendly.

IMG_20170801_074655minutes.w To Prepare:

  • Put one teaspoon (2 gm) of tea in a cup.

  • Add boiling water (200 ml) to the cup and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.


My Experience:

The tea has a pure and soothing smell of Tulsi. I have Tulsi tea with original Tulsi leaves when I got cold, so I know what the smell be like. It tastes like that tea too. I drink the tea whenever I feel down or tired, especially coming back from work. The tea immediately boosts my senses up and lessens my fatigue. I drink it twice, in the morning and in the evening. It is slowly improving my digestive system too. My younger son got cold and I gave it to him too and he got an immediate relief.

So, I’m quite happy with the tea and am strongly recommend you to try it.

  • Allow tea leaves to brew for 3-4 mins according to taste.

  • Reuse tea leaves one more time. Allow additional 30 secs steeping time for reuse.



My Experience:

I take the tea everyday 1 hour before my each meal. The tea has a strong smell of the herbs, especially cinnamon but that’s not at all irritating. I prepare the tea as per direction.

Firstly, I want to say that don’t start it taking as if from finishing the first cup you will start loosing your weight. Loosing weight needs a continuous process. A cup of tea doesn’t shred your fat abruptly, rather it will assist you to loose weight by speeding up metabolism and keeping you satiated for longer time. It prevents the transformation of sugar you consume into fat, enabling you to loose weight.

The tea with its mixed spicy smell relaxes the senses and energizes my spirit. I am really enjoying the tea and strongly recommend you who are trying to cut up your weight to try the Slim Bud tea regularly.


This much for today. If you have used any variant of tea from this brand, please share your views.


Thanks for reading. Coming soon with more products.

Aloe Vera Hydro 3-in-1 Miracle Gel from Greenberry Organics: A Review and Uses

Today I am going to tell you about another new launch from Greenberry Organics Aloe Vera Hydro 3-in-1 Miracle Gel. Aloe Vera is called “The Plant Of Immortality” because of its innumerable benefits on our overall health. It’s a medicinal plant with a multitude of uses whether to be used topically or taken internally. Aloe Vera can heal with its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. So you can understand how much I was happy when I received the gel from Greenberry Organics. Let’s start with the product.




Aloe Vera Hydro 3-in-1 Miracle Gel:

The gel is completely safe and multipurpose Aloe Vera gel which can be used on hair, scalp, face, and body for adequate intense moisturization and hydration. The gel forms a protective barrier that helps retain moisture and promotes healing of the skin. The gel can work on sunburns, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, pimples and acne, minor cuts, burns, and wounds. For the best results, it can be used as the makeup base to protect skin from the damages of the harsh chemicals in the makeup products.






Aloe Vera Juice, Aqua, Pentavitin, Gel Base, Fragrance, Natural Vitamin E.

Pentavitin is plant derived ingredient provides instant deep hydration and generates a moisture reservoir that lasts for 72 hours, is effective both on skin and scalp.

Vitamine E acts as a skin moisturizer, prevents premature aging, treats sunburn, lightens dark spots, treats stretch marks and stimulates hair growth, prevents premature graying, works on split ends.

All Greenberry Organics products are against animal testing, handmade with love, environment safe packaging, assorted and ethical sourcing, Paraben and Phthalates free, 100% natural and vegan and made from plant oils and extracts.




How To Apply:

Apply liberally on any body part.

Net Wt. 100g

Price: INR 575/-.




The gel comes in a transparent plastic jar with a screw lid under which you can get the protective lid. The packaging is very lightweight and user-friendly. As it has that extra lid to protect the gel to leak you can carry it everywhere you go.




My Experience:

The white colored gel is a multitasking product. It smells very sweet and mild. It’s gentle on the skin and doesn’t irritate the skin, rather when applying gives a cooling sensation. You can use it in different ways:

  • As a moisturizer.
  • Makeup Remover.
  • Lip Balm.
  • Hair Gel.
  • Cuticle Cream.
  • With the face mask or hair pack.
  • Body lotion.
  • Eyelash growth.




I have been using it almost for two weeks in different ways. Let me share the ways I am using the gel.


Every day I go through the basic skincare routine, i.e. C-T-M. In this C-T-M the moisturizing part is this Aloe Vera Hydro Gel. In the morning under my sunscreen I layer my face with the gel and at night I use under my night cream as the face serum. The gel calms and soothes the skin and gives good hydration without giving any breakouts to my acne prone combination skin.


I use the gel as the makeup base to protect my skin from the harmful chemicals of the makeup products. As you know before applying liquid lipstick a good hydrating lip balm should be applied. The gel comes as the life saver then too as the lip balm. It hydrates and moisturizes the lips to get prepared for liquid lipsticks.


Whenever I use any DIY face masks I mix the ingredients with gel and apply. The mask works more effectively with the goodness of aloe vera and natural vitamin E. In the hair packs too I mix the ingredients with this gel. It calms the scalp immediately I apply the mask, making my hair smoother and shinier.


I wax every month and my sensitive skin reacts each time with red bumps and itching. This month I’ve used this gel and it works miraculously and soothes my skin. I didn’t experience any reactions. The same result I saw at post eyebrow plucking application.


Another effect of the gel I experience on my son’s headache. My son suffers from a bad headache sometimes after the heavy pressure in his studies. This time I used the gel on his forehead. The gel worked amazingly with its calming and soothing agents.

These are the uses of Aloe Vera Hydro Gel I have made yet. And it works in every way. That’s why I’m very happy with the product. Do you also think it quite useful as I do? Then try this once and share your experience here. To buy visit Amazon and you can buy there on huge discount.


Thanks for reading. Will be coming soon with more such products.
