Auravedic Pulpy Facewash with Neem and Tea- Tree Review

Auravedic is a botanical brand thats specializes in making cosmetics devoid of harmful chemicals like SLS, Colors, Parabens etc. I am impressed with this brand and it seems to deliver what it claims. I have reviewed two other products from this brand HERE and HERE.






The look: A green colored gel

The texture: It comes in a jelly form and a little amount can be worked up into a lather and then applied to face.

The smell: Nothing that Irks.

My Take: The facewash cleanses the skin with aplomb and would suit oily to combination skin types. It gives a squeaky clean feeling to the skin and reduces the occurrence of acne over time. Also, the skin looks brighter and glowing after its use.

It might have a drying effect on normal to dry skins, and it is better they stay away from it. Also, depending on the skin,  one might feel a urge to moisturize after its use. A very little amount. about the size of a pea drop works up a rich lather and cleanses very well. Over all, a thumbs up from me 🙂

Usage: Moisten face with water and gently massage a small amount of face wash in circular motions. Continue for approximately one minute and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES. Incase of eye contact rinse immediately with plenty of water.

Test a small amount on clean skin on forearm 24 hours prior to use.


  1. cleans very well
  2. reduces oilyness
  3. reduces blemishes
  4. fights acne
  5. keeps skin clear and glowing
  6. brightens the skin after use


  1. It is drying on skin, so not meant for ladies having dry skin type. Also, a follow up moisturizer is essential.


Price: INR 150

Product Score: 4/5

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1Anti-aging Foaming Cleanser Review

This is a holy grail product for me, and I have been using this for about  six months.  Somehow, the name “olay” evokes a sense of calm and mildness in itself and I just love their products. Few years ago, I came across an article in Femina, where Bollywood diva Rekha, mentioned the usage of  “oil of olay” as the secret to her beautiful skin.




The look: A thick creamy face wash, that is white in color.

The Smell: Very much Olay like, mild and soothing.

My Take: A very good face wash for all skin types 🙂 and I absolutely recommend it. I have been using this twice a day and it renders a scrupulously soft and glowing skin after each wash.  A very little amount works up a good amount of lather and it effectively removes all traces of make-up. It doesn’t dry out the skin and at the same time cleans the skin perfectly.


  1. suitable for all skins
  2. Moisturizing
  3. Doesn’t dry the skin
  4. Smells Good
  5. Removes make up
  6. Can be used all year round
  7. The skin feels taut and squeaky clean


  • I could not think of any.

Price: INR 225 for 100 ml

Product Score: 4/5

Aloe Veda Avocado Oil Control Face Wash Review

Face Was has become an indispensable part of our skincare regimen since their advent In the mid nineties. I was a school going girl then :).  I am reviewing a face wash from Aloe Veda in this post.




The Product Look : A thick gel like consistency , which is not runny . The color is a pale rose pink.

The Smell : Very mild rosy smell, which is really soothing and calming. It is almost similar to the Pond’s White Colored “cold cream”Soap, we used to get in the nineties and the aroma made me nostalgic . I really loved that soap. It seems to have disappeared from the Indian market.

The packaging: It is packed safely, travel friendly with a flip open cap.

My take : Well it cleanses well and is  good on my oily skin, removes all traces of grime perfectly. I do not have very sensitive skin, it did not break me out fortunately 🙂 . The job of cleansing was done well and the skin does feel soft after its use.

Now, the pain is that it contains dimethicone and SLES, both of which are not desired in a herbal product. I am not allergic to either of the ingredients and hence did not experience any side-effects, but those who are allergic to SLES and silicones need to exercise care before committing. Also, it shall suit people with oily-combination skin only.


The positive points : 

  1. Cleans well
  2. Didn’t break me out
  3. It didn’t feel drying on my skin
  4. Available online

The negative points:

  1. Contains silicone
  2. Contains SLES ( sodium lauryl ether sulphate)

Price: INR 110 for 100 ml

Summary: Well a decent face wash that cleanses well 🙂 , but as it claims to be a herbal product and soap free, I did not expect the presence of silicones and sles . It did not have any adverse effects on my skin as I do not have sensitive skin, but people with sensitive skin need to be very careful.

Product Score: 3.5/5


Product sent by brand, but the review is honest!
