Raw Rituals Vanilla Lip Butter
Label speak : Pamper your pucker with our lip butters daily to keep them moisturized, soft and supple. Chemical and Preservative free, 100 % natural and pure. Ingredients include Unrefined beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, virgin coconut oil, cold pressed almond oil, vitamin e and pure vanilla extract.
Experience : The product comes in a simple no-nonsense roll-up, twisty stick. The fragrance reminds me of butterscotch ice-cream :) It is soft and glides beautifully on the lips. It is clear with no pigmentation and sets in a glossy finish. The lip butter does exactly what it claims on the label. I use it 2-3 times a day and my dry & chapped lips are very happy & soft now.
Price : Rs.150 for 5 gms (Shelf life 6 months)
Raw Rituals Green Tea and Coffee Infused Under Eye Cream
This under eye cream is in solid form which took me a while to get used to. It requires a bit of heat from your ring finger to quickly turn into a cream with a thin and oily consistency. What I love most is its formulation – green tea and coffee ! Two of the most effective natural products for your under eye area. The product moisturizes well and only a tiny quantity is required. If you use more than what’s necessary it will settle into a thin oily film and not get absorbed easily. Having said that, it is not a magic potion that vanishes dark circles with a poof. It is quite affordable in my opinion and I sleep well knowing that I haven’t applied any chemicals on my sensitive skin.
Price : Rs.300 for 10 g (Shelf life 6 months)
Raw Rituals Black Magic Face Scrub
Label speak : Contains french green clay, activated charcoal, ground whole wheat oats, ground almonds, rice flour, wheat grass powder, turmeric powder, zeolite clay, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, essential oils of turmeric and peppermint. Patch test recommended before use.
Directions for use : Mix adequate amount of scrub / pack with rose water/whey water/curd/warm water/milk to make a paste. Apply on face and neck. Once dry, using your fingertips in circular motion, rinse off with lukewarm water. Do not use wet hands to scoop out the scrub. Avoid eye area. In case of contact with eyes, rinse off immediately.
Experience : The scrub is in powder form with some grainy particles. It is green in colour and has a sharp smell of some essential oil (eucalyptus maybe ?). The fragrance is not unpleasant but also doesn’t completely fade away. I use rose water to turn it into a paste and apply in once a week. Once dry, I make sure all of the product is washed off thoroughly. It is an excellent exfoliator and gets rid of dead skin cells and impurities without being overly drying. It does remove blackheads to a certain extent. My skin feels squeaky clean. However, I did not see it eradicate any whiteheads in my case.
Price : Rs.450 for 75 gms (Shelf life 6 months)
