Become A Happy And Healthy Mom With Mamaearth Stress Relief Tea & Feel Better Tea.

May you be a mom, or a college girl or a working lady, every woman struggles with stress or anxiety for most of her adult life. As a working mom, I am also dealing with stress regularly. But, I never rely on any medication. Rather, I feel refreshed with yoga, listening to good music, family life and a huge stash of warm tea. But, if you can keep the hand on a tea that has herbs and ingredients meant to calm and relax your senses, don’t you think that’ll be great? Yes, I’m talking about Traditional Recipes Stress Relief Tea and Feel Better Tea from the brand Mama Earth.

Mama Earth has recently launched new products under the name of Traditional Recipes to bring the traditional recipes into the well being of moms or to-be moms. From these new launches, they have sent me two varieties, Stress Relief Tea and Feel Beter Tea. Now, let me share my experiences about these two.

 

Stress Relief Tea:

Parental stress is the second most important factor in child’s well-being and so, Stress Relief Tea is here to help them relieve some of that stress. The tea is made of Herbs like Sarsaparilla Root and Cinnamon Bark which have been known for their soothing and calming effect for centuries.

IMG_20171010_103944

 

The Herbs in Stress Relief Tea:

1. Indian Sarsaparilla Root: With its Saponins, Sterols, and antioxidants, Sarsaparilla Root has been known to ease mental and physical fatigue and improve immunity. It also cleans blood and removes toxins from the body.

2. Cinnamon Bark Ext: Cinnamon bark relieves stress, boosts immunity and protects from heart diseases. It is also known to eliminate the risk of cancer.

3. Ginger Root: Ginger contains a potent antioxidant, Gingerol, which helps eliminate the harmful chemicals our body produces when we are worried, hence reducing stress.

4. Eucalyptus Leaf: Eucalyptus is great for relieving stress, increasing energy and relieving muscle and joint pain. It reduces inflammation in the blood vessels and arteries, thereby protecting you from heart attacks and strokes.

 

IMG_20171015_064352

 

Directions For Use:

To get maximum benefits out of these teas always prepare them properly. Pour 200ml freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup, cover it while it steeps and let it stay for 10-15 minutes. All these steps greatly influence the yield of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining ext. Drink two cups daily between meals.

 

Price: INR 599 for a pack of 30 bags.

 

Packaging:

The tea bags come in a tin container on which all the info about the tea, brand name and the name of the product is printed.

IMG_20171010_104933

 

IMG_20171010_105115

 

 

My Experience:

I take this tea twice as directed by the brand. As a teacher, taking regular classes is a stressful job. So, I take at daytime between my classes. As I take higher classes, I have to talk much and that damages my throat. So after taking 2-3 classes, when I sip the tea, I get refreshed at once and it gives instant relief to my sore throat too. And the second cup, I take in the evening after coming back and then the tea boosts my energy level to do my household duties, especially helps me tackle my naughty younger son. I get a happy feel, each time I drink the tea. So, it can be said that Stress Relief tea does exactly what the brand claims.

 

Feel Better Tea:

Becoming a mom is no cakewalk, rather acidity and low immunity can make it more difficult. Feel Better tea protects her from all the infections while strengthening her immune system. It helps settle the stomach, aid in digestion and revive her for the day. A handcrafted blend of mint, ginger, chamomile and other soothing herbs, the tea calms the unwanted stomach issues while making her strong inside.

IMG_20171014_130623

 

IMG_20171014_134241

The Herbs In The Feel Better Tea:

1. Nettle Leaf: Nettle is a strong antioxidant that purifies blood and cures an upset stomach. It also helps in skin issues like acne, eczema etc.

2. Chamomile: It calms the nervous system, builds immunity and aids in digestion. It also helps in sleep better by relaxing your nervous system.

3. Mint: It boosts the immune system, esp, against a common cough and cold. The tea also helps in reducing menstrual cramps.

4. Ginger: It aids in digestion, reduces nausea, helps manage imbalances in the gut and builds immunity.

 

IMG_20171014_144931

 

Directions For Use:

Pour 200 ml freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup, cover the cup, and let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining ext and drink daily between meals.

Price: INR 599 for 30 tea bags.

IMG_20171014_130700

 

 

IMG_20171014_134203

 

My Experience:

I take this tea twice a day, sometimes thrice too. The sweet aroma in it is very refreshing and immediately boosts you up. It’s not bitter at all. As I drink the tea, it gives my senses an immediate boost and I feel relaxed. After having for regular 2 weeks, it has made my digestion system far better. Digestion is a great problem with me, for what I had to take medicines too. But for 1 week, I haven’t taken any medicine. Moreover, recently I made a trip to South India, where I didn’t have to take any antacid which I normally would take in my every trip. As the tea has improved my digestion, I have put off some weight too. And this result has made me really feel better.

Disclaimer: Herbal Tea should be avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy. Also avoid these if you have a known hypersensitive to Nettle Plant or any plant within Persely family like Fennel seed. This product was sent to me by the brand for honest review. This tea is not a significant source of vitamins and minerals. Under no circumstances exceed the prescribed dosage.

 

After reading, you might be thinking of trying them out. So, don’t think much and buy them now to be a beautiful and happy mom. 

Thanks for reading.

Get Beautiful and Confident with the Jewelry from Panigha India.

Accessories has always been fun to add some flair to my looks. Accessories and jewelry can make all the difference. Wearing jewelry is something I enjoy much and I think all women around the world are passionate about jewelry as it represents feminism and makes women feel special, stylish and confident. And if it’s Statement jewelry, it makes you celebrate womanhood. Statement jewelry itself has a power of it’s own and wearing a statement jewelry gives a woman a sense of empowerment and helps her stand out above the rest. Today, I am going to share with you some such jewelry which I have picked up from Panighaindia.

The Brand: Panigha India

Panigha India, is a Kolkata-based jewelry brand that operates from Facebook and Instagram. Panighaindia was born out of immense love for handicrafts some months ago, but during this short period, it’s become a name in the field of handicrafts. They sells jewelry, home decor, stoles,  dupatta, in a word they have anything to do with fashion and in very affordable prices. Another thing I love about the brand is their safe packaging and fast delivery. They have sent me a set of handmade jewelry and I have purchased one set of Afghan Jewelry. Both the sets were safely packed and reached my place within three days.

 

 

What I have Picked Up From Panigha India:

When I first time visit their page, what attracted me is their exclusive and variety of range. Each and every jewelry is unique and you will not see any second piece. They have sent me a set of neckpiece and earrings. But, honestly, seeing their collection, I couldn’t resist myself from buying one. So, let’s have a look what I have picked up from Panigha India.

My Styling With The Jewelry from Panigha India:

As, Diwali is round the corner, I think it will be the best to create a traditional look. And what can be the most gorgeous and sexy look, than the look you create with a saree? The Saree is considered to be a timeless outfit. It has never failed to surprise us with its variety of innovations that have been brought in it till date.

 

I have created two looks, one day look with a typical hand painted Bengal handloom saree and other with a night look with silk saree. Both the sarees I have bought from a local boutique.

 

Day Look:

IMG_20170920_9

My Experience:

The oil has a mild but sweet rose fragrance that’s stolen my heart from the first day of using. It’s a lightweight, non sticky oil that takes no time to absorb into the skin. It doesn’t make my skin greasy or oily. And the light and natural oil doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin too.

 

IMG_20170920_5

 

I use the oil every day after shower twice and take a 6-7 pumps of the oil on my palm and massage all over my body. Very little amount is needed for the whole body. And the pump dispenser doesn’t allow you to waste the product. The soothing aroma of this oil helps in relaxing the senses while massaging it on the body, especially I can experience when I apply the oil after coming back from work. After using this massage oil my skin feels soft, nourished, hydrated and the oil leaves my skin pleasantly fragrant. It gives a good glow on the skin, reducing the sunburn on the exposed parts slowly. After one and half weeks of using, I can notice a remarkable difference in my skin.

 

Overall, I am quite happy with the result. It can be said that it has fulfilled all the claims from the brand. And I am surely gonna repurchase the oil. If you are looking for an oil that gives you a well toned texture, and a nourished and glowing skin, it’s the product then. 

 

That’s all for today. Coming back soon with more such incredible products.

Get Flawless Look With Green Tea Charcoal Face Pack|Coffee Mud Mask ft SkincareVilla Shop

A Review of Skincare Villa Shop Facial Oil.

Review on Rose Turmeric and Oats Almond Cleansers From SkincareVilla Shop

 

Today I am going to share two masks, I’m recently using from SkincareVilla Shop. They are Green Tea Charcoal Face Pack and Coffee Mud Mask. Let me start with them.

IMG_20170912_1

 

Green Tea Charcoal Face Pack:

 

Though all skin types will be benefitted from this mask, it is especially stellar for oily or combination skin types, as well as those that are prone to breakouts or blackheads.

You can notice positive effect even after just one application. For lasting results, it is recommended to incorporate Green Tea Charcoal mask into your regular skincare routine.

IMG_20170912_3

Ingredients:

Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay, Organic Green Tea powder, Charcoal Powder, Rice Powder.

 

Directions for usage:

Apply a thin layer of face pack mixed with plain water. Let it dry naturally. Splash cold water and gradually remove face pack. Keep away from clothes, as it may stain.

 

Price: 275 INR for 30g

 

Packaging:

The black powder comes in a tiny plastic tub with black screw cap on the top the name of the brand is printed. Quite handy packaging. My only request to the brand to provide the ingredients list on the packaging. Though, they share the ingredients immediately after you ask for.

IMG_20170912_2

 

My Experience:

I’ve been using the face mask from the very first day I have received this baby. I use it as the night skin treatment. It’s a black colored powder with no added smell that I like very much. As, synthetic flavors may cause irritation to the skin. I prepare the mask as per brand’s direction.

Screenshot_2017-09-12-07-45-06-485

 

I noticed after the first use:

  • Smoother, softer skin to touch
  • Lessened the appearance snd size of breakout
  • A deeply cleansed and fresh feel, as well as feeling nourished and hydrated
  • Absorbed excess oil from the T-zone, but didn’t find dryness on the drier parts

If you use this mask regularly it will treat acne and prevent them from coming back. It will help the serums, creams absorb into the skin faster, balance the oil production in the skin. I recommend you to use the mask twice a week to get maximum benefit from it.

 

NB – Please do a patch test before using the product.

Coffee Mud Mask:

In today’s beauty world clay masks are well known for their incredibly versatile effects on our skin. So, this Coffee Mud mask will definitely become the new best friend of your face. It can work wonders for a lot of common skin issues, from dullness or inflammation to acne or eczema. So, with this Coffee Mud Mask you can give your skin a spa treatment at the cozy corner of your home. 

IMG_20170912_5

 

 

Ingredients:

Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay, Rhassoul Clay, Organic Coffee powder

Directions for usage:

Apply a thin layer of face pack mixed with plain water. Let it dry naturally. Splash cold water and gradually remove face pack.  Do not rub harshly.

Price: 225 INR for 30g.

Packaging:

The beige colored mask powder comes in a plastic tub with a black screw lid. On the top of the lid the name of the brand printed on a red label. The packaging is user-friendly.

 

IMG_20170912_4

 

My Experience:

As clay masks act as detoxifying agents, I use the mask after coming back from the work. It has a mild smell of coffee beans that the coffee lovers will definitely love. I use it according to the brand’s direction. When I make the paste I can see the tiny coffee granules in it. As I apply the mask, it gives a cooling sensation on the face.

 

IMG_20170916_1

 

IMG_20170916_2

I noticed after the first use:

• Smoother and softer skin

• A nicely hydrated and detoxified skin with a fresh and relaxed feel

• Brightened and clear skin

• Lessened the size and appearance of acne breakout and zits

• Perfectly balanced the oil in my combination skin without making it too dry

It’s recommended to use the mask twice weekly in the evening to detoxify your skin and give the skin a perfect treatment against the polluted environment. Suitable for every skin type, especially the matured, dull and lifeless skin.

NB – Please do a patch test before using the product.

 

 

Overall, these two masks have made me quite happy with the results I have experienced. I think, you might have curious to know which one is my favorite between the two. Though I love them both, my favorite is the Coffee Mud Mask. I love its smell, its cooling impact, its effect on the skin, in a word everything. The Coffee Mud Mask has renewed my skin and given a nice polished look. 

 

Have you tried any one of the two? Have you ever used any product from SkincareVilla.shop

My Experience:

First of all I want to say that the body cleanser is giving me a luxurious and relaxing bathing experience with its heavenly smell and very soft texture. The very first day as I opened the outer package the sweet smell of geranium and rose immediately gave me a happy feel. Anddddd, I am sold by it, yes I am honest. The texture is incredibly soft and doesn’t at all irritate my sensitive skin. It’s neither runny nor thick. The texture is just perfect for regular use.

IMG_20170912_13

 

I use the body gel twice daily, in the morning and in the evening after coming back from the work. I take 4-5 drops on the loofah and rub all over my wet body to form a rich lather. It’s recommended to use natural loofah to avoid irritation or skin damage. I have purchased mine from a local store.

IMG_20170914_2

Everyday with this cleanser my shower is getting luxurious and relaxing. I can see it drawing out impurities and dirt from my skin effectively without making it dry. Rather, the body cleanser gives whole day hydration, giving a softer and healthier skin. I need a very small amount of the product to wash my whole body.

 

Overall, I’m really happy with the body cleanser. If you love sweet and mild floral fragrances  you can indulge and enjoy your every bathing with Seer Secrete body cleansers.
