*** GIVE AWAY CLOSED & WINNER ANNOUNCED ***
Last month I spoke about yet another awesome brand, Burst of Happyness and I was super happy to have written about it in the Brand Focus section. And as I mentioned in my post, I picked up and was also sent a major haul of the products that I have begun to try and some that I am yet to try!
Burst of Happyness Product Review – What a Girl Wants
The first product that I started using was the facial cleanser What a Girl Wants. With the onset of summer my skin starts getting oily and I am always in need of a cleanser that does not dry out my face completely. The name had a very Lush feeling to it and I was super keen to try this cleanser. Now I have no clue why the pics turned out brown, but the product is actually a dull grey.
You don’t need too much of this cleanser and I would recommend one to try the 50 gm tub first (priced at INR 200) first to check how it suits your skin type. The first fragrance that I got was of tea tree oil followed by a hint of lavender. What it also has is a base of rhassoul clay jojoba oil and rose petals. That is all that it contains. The ingredient list is something Shreya does not believe in hiding from the customers.
I have been using this for a week and a half now, a good time frame to check how the product suits my skin. It has a soft yet crumbly texture to it that allows you spread it easily like a cleanser. The rose petals and the crumbly texture allows it to act like a very mild exfoliator that cleanses your skin very well. It did dry out my skin after the initial half a dozen washes, but not after that. I call it the adjusting period when your skin is getting used to a product.The cleanser is non greasy and you need to take less than half a teaspoon and mix it with water and use like a normal cleanser. Wash off with luke warm water for best results. I do not need to follow up with a moisturiser.
Post the adjusting period, the cleanser worked well for my skin. It cleans your skin really well of the impurities, dirt and grime that may have accumulated through the day. It leaves your skin looking visibly brighter. And when I use most new products I face a slight breakout, but my skin was not affected with this.
A bit about the products in the cleanser:
- Rhassoul Clay: Rich in magnesium, silica, potassium and calcium. It also helps to absorb the excess oils of the skin without disturbing the natural moisturising abilities of the skin. Regular usage can improve skin elasticity.
- Tea Tree oil: Helps combat acne related issues and the anti bacterial properties help
- Lavender Oil: Helps to calm and soothe the tired skin
Note that I am not a make up person, so I am not aware of how it will fare with people who are washing the face with the make up on.
How to use?
Scoop out half a teaspoon of the cleanser, mix with water to make a paste and rub in small circle. Rinse off with luke warm water. Do not use wet fingers to take out the cleanser to avoid contamination. Also do note that this is a preservative free product so do no get water into the jar. Yes, I have also used this as a face mask and would recommend it to you too but not more than once a fortnight.
Price and Shelf Life
Priced at INR 380, this 100 gm jar of handmade clay facial cleanser comes with a six month shelf life and it is advisable that you use it within 3 months of opening the product. You also get a smaller variant of the cleanser that is priced at INR 200 for a 50 gm jar.
