It has been nearly two years since I started blogging and I am overwhelmed with the response I have been receiving lately. I had reached a point in life when I decided to throw out everything that was not clean or healthy for my body and started eating consciously and then finally swapping to chemical free beauty products. Taking the first step is always difficult but once you have had the breakthrough, you can progress easily. If you want to start with a brand that is completely natural, effective and is priced reasonably, I will suggest you try Artisanal Skincare. Artisanal Skincare is a range of skincare and wellness products that are not only handmade, but have limited edition as well. Without any preservatives, the oils, herbs, and spices are sourced from all over India – from Himachal to Kerala – with some even coming from across the oceans. I am featuring two of their best products in the post introduce to you the brand – Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask and Activated Charcoal Green Tea.
Activated Charcoal Green Tea
The Activated Charcoal Green tea is a soap free cleanser which can be used regularly as a face cleanser. The two main ingredients are – activated charcoal which is supposed to pull out the dirt and bacteria from the pores and green tea which soothes the skin without leaving it too dry. I found the cleanser to be mild but like I always recommend that you do a patch test before use the product for the first time, especially if you have sensitive skin. The turmeric provides radiance to the skin while the lemon brightens the skin tone. Overall, I found the cleanser to be effective, the only issue is the slight smell of chick peas which I am not a big fan of :P. Otherwise, it is great for use, especially before heading out for an instant glow.
Wild Turmeric, Chickpea Flour, Green Tea, Activated Charcoal, Lemon.
Shelf Life –
Make a thick paste with water or curd. Exfoliate gently and wash it off with cold water and follow up with rose water.
Price – 100 gms for Rs 650.
Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask
From the shores of the Dead Sea in Israel, this therapeutic Black Mud is full of anti oxidants and minerals that stimulate circulation and improve skin texture and tone. It cleanses deeply, exfoliates and detoxifies the skin. Dead sea mud is high in minerals, such as sodium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium, hence it nourishes the skin. The lake is actually 9 times as salty as the oceans of the world. The same reason why aquatic or marine life is non existent, why the water is not fit for drinking and of course why you keep afloat in the waters of the Dead Sea. Besides, all of that, the mud is very useful for treating skin conditions like psoriasis. Artisanal Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask is of course 100% pure without any other extra ingredient added to it. The mask is excellent for healing skin conditions, moisturising and detoxifying. This is a must try for everyone with skin problems.
Pure Dead Sea Mud
Apply a thick layer on your face & neck avoiding the eye area and any wounds. Leave it for 10 – 12 minutes. Remove by gently rubbing your fingers in circular motions for overall exfoliation and remove any excess with lukewarm water. (May cause tingling sensation). Can be used once a week.
Price 100 gms for Rs 1,300.
or 50 gms for Rs 650.
I would definitely recommend the mask, if you’d ask me. The brand has a range of individual products as well as hampers for body and face which are perfect for gifting to loved ones or even yourself. Do share your thoughts, if you happen to use their products .
