I love natural, paraben chemical free skincare products. Of late I have been trying out a lot of products from indie brands or smaller indian brands that are cruelty free and offer handmade natural products. Earthvedic is one such brand. The brand shared a lot of the personal care products and I have been testing them out for a little over 3 weeks now. Let’s talk about the products in detail –
Earthvedic products are SLES, Paraben & cruelty free and made with natural ingredients. I have –
Face Wash For Dry Skin (Rs 399 for 100 ml)
I have dry skin and it has the tendency to look dull & flaky. I use face washes formulated specially form skin type. Earthvedic Face Wash For Dry Skin has active ingredients like cucumber, rose, honey & aloe vera. It is white in color with a pearly glow to it. The face wash lathers up nicely and cleanses the skin without drying it up. It smells, fresh & fruity. The packaging is nice and travel friendly however I would have preferred a pump bottle for easy use.
Face & Body Scrub (Rs 475 for 50 g)
Exfoliating is an indispensable part of my skincare routine. I scrub my face & body atleast once a week with a gentle cream based scrub. Earthvedic Face & Body Scrub is a cream based scrub with fine exfoliating granules. It doesn’t feel gritty or scratchy on the skin, however one must not put pressure while using a scrub. The formula gets rid of dead skin cells and make it brighter and cleaner.
The scrub contains ingredients like Neem, Tulsi, aloe vera that have anti bacterial and anti fungal properties making it good for all skin types.
Face Pack (Rs 475 for 50 g)
After exfoliating , I follow up with a good face pack. Skin is cleaner and products work better after scrubbing. I have been trying out Earthvedic face mask for more than two weeks (5-6 applications) and really like the results. It has ingredients like neem, sandalwood, aloe vera, vetiver that not only work on acne/pimples but also reduce scarring. It dries on the skin and washes off easily with lukewarm water. It doesn’t make my skin dry or stretchy. My skin looks brighter & fresh after each use. I am yet to see its effect on scars & blemishes though. I find it a little on the expensive side.
Next Step has to be application of a serum or cream.
Anti Wrinkle Cream (Rs 649 for 50g)
The formula is suitable for all skin types. I have dry but acne prone skin and pure formulations don’t suit it all the time. Specially when the cream has lots of natural oils in it. I was a little skeptical before trying this anti wrinkle cream out because ayurvedic creams are mostly heavy & thick. Fortunately Earthvedic Anti Wrinkle Cream was such a pleasant surprise. It doesn’t smell like regular ayurvedic formulations. It has this really fresh scent and light texture. The cream absorbs into the skin within minutes of applications leaving it looking smoother & softer.
I take about a pea size amount and massage it onto neck & face. It keeps my skin moisturised for a long time without breaking out. It has ingredients like almond oil, wheat germ oil, aloevera, liquorice, vetiver & saffron. The formula might be a bit rich for oily skin types during warmer months.
Under Eye Cream (Rs 599 for 50 g)
One should start using an under eye cream as soon as they hit mid twenties. The sooner the better since the area around our eyes is much thiner & shows signs of ageing faster than rest of our face. I have naturally dry skin which means drier under eye area. I am not regular with eye creams and mostly apply face oils on that area too. I am using Earthvedic Under eye cream off and on and find the texture light & moisturising. It works well even under makeup, giving a smooth base for the concealer to stick onto.
The formula is anti fatigue and moisturising. After working for long hours in front of computer combined with staying up late , I definitely needed something that can work on my under eye bags. It has a light scent and fluffy whipped texture.
Last but not the least Sunscreen which has to be one of the key products of your skincare regime.
Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 (Rs 449 for 100 ml)
A sunscreen lotion not only protects your skin from tanning but also from premature ageing. I love a good sunscreen that doesn’t make my face greasy or grey. Earthvedic Sunscreen has a beautiful light texture & it just sinks into the skin without leaving a white cast or greasy residue making it perfect for all skin types. It smells LOVELY !!! I liked the fact that the brand has included a pump in the packaging which makes the application convenient.
The formula has ingredients like Aloe Vera, cucumber, liquorice, turmeric & fenugreek.
