My Views on Aster Luxury Rose Soap:

Aster Luxury soaps come in a plastic packaging with labels in the front as well as back. The label at the back  gives you details of ingredients, manufacture date,etc. Its a very simple and fuss free packaging, but the packaging doesn't go with the brand name. I would have definitely preferred a slightly better packaging.

The soap is semi - opaque and reddish pink in color just like a rose. I'm a sucker for soaps with amazing fragrance, but unlike the sandalwood soap this doesn't have a very strong fragrance :(. Its pretty mild so its great for people who don't like their soaps to have a strong fragrance. This soap contains the goodness of coconut oil, castor oil & glycerin... all of these are doing wonders for my skin. 

Another amazing fact is that unlike other handmade soaps.. this doesn't melt too fast nor does it loose its shape. It lathers really well and cleanses the skin completely. The soap is highly 
moisturizing and i don't feel the need to apply a moisturizer.


1. Free of Parabens & Phthalates
2. Not tested on animals
3. Easily available online
4. Lathers well
5. Nourishes the skin with the goodness of coconut oil, castor oil & glycerin
6. Doesn't melt too fast


1. Wouldn't mind a better packaging

2. Would have preferred a stronger frangrance

Aster Luxury Bathing Bar - Rose is a great soap for all skin types. Loving the nourishing effect it is having on my skin. Overall, this soap is definitely a winner in my eyes.

Honestly, I have enjoyed using both the soaps from Aster. Have you tried their soaps?? If yes, which one.

Oriflame Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash

Hi Everyone,

Happy Holi!! Hope you enjoyed yourself... Unlike other blogs i won't be having a post related to Holi, because honestly i don't know how to take care of the skin post Holi as i don't celebrate this festival due to my sensitive skin*sob sob* Anyhow, all said and done a face wash is a staple product in almost everyone's life. So today i'm going to review a face wash from one of my favourite brand, which i have used on and off for quite some time.

About Oriflame Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash:

Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash with Mulberry extracts and Vitamin E- cleanses, purifies, mattifies, brightens and comforts the skin all at once! Oriflame’s Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash’s multi-action cleansing formula helps brighten and even out skin tone. It also helps remove excessive oil without over drying and is suitable for combination to oily skin type.

Price & Qty:

Rs.249 for 75 ml


My take on Oriflame Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash:

Oriflame Essentials Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash comes in a sleek white and pink tube with a screw on lid. Its a hygienic and travel friendly packaging. As the name suggests its a gel based face wash, but its slightly runny in comparison to other gel face washes. It has a pleasant smell which isn't overpowering. The fragrance lingers for a bit and then fades away. It a soap free cleanser and it foams and lathers really well and i always love that in my face washes.

Even though the name suggests its a fairness face wash, the brand doesn't mention that in its product description. Instead, the brand claims that this face wash cleanses, purifies, mattifies, brightens and comforts the skin all at once! It definitely cleanses the skin really well without leaving any sort of residue. Since im blessed with combination skin tone i always prefer face washes which mattify my skin and this face wash by Oriflame does the job pretty well. With regular usage i could definitely see the brightness on my face.

The only con is that you need to purchase the products through an Oriflame consultant. I don't face this issue as i'm an oriflame consultant myself... Hehe... Anyhow, i really like this face wash, and i use it regularly. Its a pretty good face wash for those with combination to oily skin.

Hope you found this review useful! Do leave your views in comments below.
