Handmade soap

Brief Introduction about Nyassa -  
Nyassa has its origin in a Sanskrit word that means healing through touch by chanting tantras and mantras. The result. A divine body. But Nyassa is also a dream, our dream, born out of our passion for making natural bath and body products. Ishween Anand, the visionary behind Nyassa, left her cushy finance job in New York to pursue her passion for fragrances in India. She first started selling luxurious bath and body products on weekends at the Atria Mall in Mumbai in April 2007. Her vision was to create a beautiful product that was mild on the skin and left a wonderful lingering fragrance.

It is with this philosophy that Nyassa embarked upon creating aesthetic products in rich textures and sensuous aromas. But for your skin to maintain its youthful vitality, the product also has to work harmoniously with it. And that's why we only use the finest ingredients, keeping them wholesome, pure and natural to the extent possible. Our processes have been learnt from many experts from around the world. The final product is a work of art. Tantalizingly fragrant. Gloriously beautiful. And gentle on the skin. Nyassa's expertise lies in evoking feelings through fragrances. Fond childhood memories. That first romantic kiss. Lying down on the beach. A walk under the starry skies. And many, many more… Reach out to all these special moments. Only with Nyassa.

My Experience with the Product - 

The soap bar is a transparent luscious red coloured bar with a green coloured topping.

I absolutely love using this soap. The handmade soap is very aromatic and instantly makes you feeling fresh with its sweet rich aroma.

The soap contains essential oils and contains coconut oil which doesn't extensively dry out your skin. It lathers up very easily. 

Nyassa handmade luxury soap

Unlike other handmade soaps which I have tried before, this one doesn't melt easily if you keep it dry after each time you use it in the shower.Its been more than 3 weeks -  I am still using the soap everyday - It has lasted me for quite sometime now without becoming all gooey and soft. 

The soap is absolutely a delight to use - it will leave your skin pampered and is completely skin -friendly - it has not given me any break outs or allergic reactions. 

Love it or chuck it ? 
I absolutely love it ! I am very eager to try out other fragrances that Nyassa has to offer....

Auravedic Pure Calming Face Mist

A good face mist is a boon for all those who suffer from dry skin. Although we use dry skin products - sometimes our skin needs hydration after every few hours - specially in winters. Facial Mist is a savior  when you constantly work in an air-conditioned room for the most of the day because staying inside an air conditioned room for most of the day causes our skin to dehydrate. And in such times - a good calming face mist is the only quick solution to fix the problem.

One such mist I will be reviewing today is Auravedic Pure Calming Face Mist.  

Auravedic Pure Calming Face Mist

Product: Auravedic Pure Calming Face Mist.

Price and Quantity: INR 200/- for 100 ml

What it claims:

This gentle antioxidant Facial mist delivers nourishing moisture to balance and hydrate all skin types. Blended with pure fragrant organic oils, Aloe vera and Green tea to tone and repair skin. This mist is just the thing to keep your skin feeling soft, hydrated and moisturized without looking and feeling oily. Aloe vera soothes and refreshes skin.
Neroli and rose infuse skin with antioxidant nutrients that protect skin against environmental stresses that damage skin. Free of Parabens, SLS, Harmful Chemicals & Colours.

My Experience with the Product:

The mist has really great as it has helped me in the heat of the summers to keep my skin hydrated and fresh.
Close your eyes and spray this mist directly on your face while holding the bottle four to five inches away from your face. I let the mist to sit on my face and allow it to air dry.
Only one spray of the mist is enough to refresh me with its calming smell of roses and hydrate my skin.
I have also used this mist to set my makeup - The mist acts like a finishing spray to set my makeup. It does a good job.
Auravedic Face Mist
The mist also seals in moisture into the skin and keeps the skin moisturized.
I also experimented by mixing this mist along with my face-pack and I quite liked the results it gave - A subtle nice glowy skin.
The mist is perfect as it is very light, doesn't cause any irritation and most importantly it is not at all greasy.
 I use this mist the instant I step inside the house after facing the heat to instantly cool off my skin.

This facial mist is great skin care aid and a product mixer. Below are some of ways you can use face mist sprays --
  • Use it on your face before applying moisturizer to seal in hydration. 
  • Use it as a facial mask - (Just like the one I reviewed recently - Neutrogena's Deep Whitening Mask) Apply the mist generously on facial cotton pads and let it sit on your face for 15 mins. 
  • Use it to set your makeup. 
  • Use it as a mixer for your face packs. 
Love it or Chuck it ? 
Definitely love it !!! I will recommend everyone to pick this product up - It offers great Spa Treatment for your face when you are stressed out !!!
