Simple and sturdy Glass container with a sturdy Black plastic lid.



I was a little careless with the Lid and look at how it dried out the product! So, Remember to screw the Lid tightly after each use.


Consistency After mixing the dried out cleanser with a little water.


My experience: when i shifted to Chennai, the condition of my skin started deteriorating due to the high humidity, heat and super hard water. It was the worst it had ever been in my whole life. My skin became excessively oily and started getting clogged up which resulted in insane number of blackheads and whiteheads! 

                                                         One fortunate day, i stumbled up on the review of this product from suki on a natural beauty blog and was quite intrigued after reading. After a little more research, i ordered it right away. 

                                                         The texture of this Cleanser is interesting. It's like fine sugar granules mixed with juices and oils. It sure is a little abrasive so obviously not recommended for people with lot's of active acne. I take a little..like say..1/4th teaspoon of it in my palm, mix it with approximately a teaspoon worth water and foam it up. The sugar granules don't dissolve completely thus helping in gently exfoliating the skin. Then, i apply it to my face and massage gently in circular motions. After washing off, my skin feels comfortably clean. Sugar being a humectant and colloidal Oat kernel flour being a moisturizer and soother, leaves the skin hydrated instead of leaving it squeaky clean. Since i lived in a humid climate, i just used to spray my skin with Forest essentials Panch pushp facial toner and that's it. Never felt the need to moisturize.

                                                        After using it religiously for almost 20 days, i saw a clear improvement in my skin's clarity, texture and balance. No more excessive oily skin and No more insane number of blackheads and whiteheads! Completely Calm. Yay! 

Not at all lying! No ma'm. :)

Thank you Suki Kramer. <3

And i totally loved the delicate sugary Lime-lemongrass fragrance.

Tri Review: Soulflower Rose-Geranium Bath salt Review, Cnaan Soap-Roses and Soulflower Rose-Geranium Soap Review.

This is going to be a combined mini review post of 3 Roses... i mean... 3 different Rose products. :D
*3 Roses is an Indian Tea Brand.
Warning: If you had a Tough Thursday, Do Not Read This Post! A little (may be not so little) negativity here and there.Yep.Trust me.

1: Soulflower Rose-Geranium Bath salt.
Ingredients: Rosehip essential oil, Geranium essential oil, Thai Herbs, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Borate, Epsom salt, Sea salts, Permitted Colorings. 

My experience: I really like this bath salt for the super relaxing and de-stressing scent of Rose and Geranium essential oils. But, it stains everything it touches! From Bath tub, bucket, bathroom floor to Skin!!! I mean...seriously...Skin!!!! :-/ So, A big No No from me!

UPDATE: After reading this 'staining' problem that i mentioned, The Brand contacted me and assured that they will work on this issue. Yayyy!!! :)

2: Cnaan Soap - Roses.
I bought this 'Roses' soap from the UK based brand Cnaan with such high hopes but, it let me down so low that i decided not to look at anything from this brand ever again! The reason for my hatred is it's blah fragrance. It smells of stale dry rose petals! Now, who wants to bath with that!? So, Again.. a Big No No!

Ingredients: Ah..don't even bother.

By now, you must be thinking: 'When she hates it so much, why did she even write this review!?
Ans: Just didn't want the pretty pictures to go waste! :P

3: Soulflower Rose-Geranium Soap.
 Like all the other natural soaps from Soulflower, this one is also Amazing! It is non-drying, gives a rich lather and features the wonderful Rose-Geranium scent.

So sad that they discontinued this wonderful smelling soap! Why? :(

Click for the Reviews of  Soulflower's super amazing natural soaps: Pep me Mint and Bite me Chocolate.

The next Review post will be of a product that will lift your spirits.I Promise!
