This is a ‘Saas – Bahu’ faceoff of another kind…A Mom and Daughter- in- law duo indulge in some gossip, green tea and gooey face packs! Check out ‘Just Herbs’, an Indian herbal skincare range, reviewed over two weeks of super girly fun!
Sanface: Sandal Glowpack
Saas: “Visibly cleaner skin after the first use but the tightening effect is not felt yet.”
Bahu: “I feel my skin tighten a bit but I also think it has made it slightly dry”
Saas: “I think it’s making my skin glow! All my building friends have been complimenting me!”
Bahu: “I’ve had to use my intense moisturizer after the pack but yes, sandalwood oil used in this concoction has definitely worked beautifully on my skin.”
Final verdict: Good product- Really does make the skin glow!
Price: Rs 295 For 150g
2) Aloe Vera Face massage gel
Saas says: “It has a very soothing effect on the skin- after washing off, my skin seemed very soft to touch.”
Bahu says: “I’m l-o-v-i-n-g the product! I’m a fan of natural aloe vera and this gel comes pretty close to its natural form. My skin felt way softer and visibly refreshed even days after use.”
“I’ve been using it after the face pack as a follow up natural moisturizer. My skin has never been so soft to touch!”
Bahu: It seems like it really seeps deep into the skin and moisturizes it from within. I’ve found it to soothe and calm my skin a lot. I’ve even kept it on for an hour or two- its non sticky and invisible after the first couple of minutes on the face. I’m in love with this magic portion!
3) Neem Pure: Skin purifying neem pack
Saas says: “It’s like multani mitti… yes, it has a refreshing effect on the skin but I don’t think it’s offering me anything new.”
Bahu: “I added a little rose water and honey to this pack because I have dry skin- and it worked for me!
Saas says: “It’s good, but still, I’m not as impressed as I am, about the other two products.”
Bahu: “I’m certain this product can help acne prone skin due to its neem ingredient. It’s definitely worth a try.”
Final verdict: Great for oily and pimple prone skin type- okay for normal skin types.
Price: Rs 295 for 60g.
4) Jajoba 3-in -1 Sun Block
Saas: I don’t use sun blocks at all but this one was good! Plus, it claims to be herbal and natural so I’m happy to use it as opposed to those heavy duty SPF this and that. I don’t want to use a heavy formula on my already aging skin so this is a perfect alternative.”
Bahu: “I’m pretty set in my ways when it comes to sun protection. I’m not fully convinced about using it at the pool but yes, perhaps for a short while out in the sun.”
Great products! Do note that there’s a disclaimer on the back of the products that reads: “This is not a cosmetic product. It has therapeutic properties.” I wish they had also included a set of directions to use for the products. For example, the mom in law reviewer didn’t have a clue as to how to use some of the products and how long to ideally keep it on for.
