Mirum Fresh Fruit Honey Real Nature Mask

​I received this face mask from skin18.com for review purposes. The packaging looks neat and clean. Though there are no instructions in English on the back, the idea of using a face mask is pretty basic. You remove the face mask from the cover and apply it on the face anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. I usually let it be on my face for 30 minutes because I like the cooling sensation. 

This face mask is for hydrated skin. I have used Mirum Face Mask before and it was a huge disappointment. However today my skin was feeling very dry and red so I thought honey would be soothing and hydrating. I opened the mask expecting a chemical smell like last time but was surprised to just get a slight whiff of honey. The mask was soft and thick with lots of serum. 

No mask had ever fit me properly so the mask maybe a little off. The serum was thin and had a water like consistency but it was not runny nor did my mask drip a lot. After 30 minutes, I removed the mask and my skin felt soft, smooth and hydrated. My angry red skin seems to have calmed down a little anyway. Overall I really liked this mask and I was pleasantly surprised at that as I did not like the last mask I used of Mirum Fresh Fruit Avocado. Thank you so much skin18.com for supplying me with this mask for review. I enjoyed it very much.#skin18 #skin18review #skin18challenge

Sahajan Protective Face Serum 

I received this product in one of my subscription boxes. Though I was very excited to try it, I had other products to finish first. So when a spot opened up in my beauty routine,  I eagerly started using it. So here is my full review of the Sahajan Protective Face Serum. 

Sahajan Skincare is a new Canadian brand that has a unique approach to beauty- it is a fusion of Ayurvedic remedies and organic science. A way to heal and nourish hair and skin, without worrying about the ingredients.

Sahajan is a Hindi word meaning intuition. The founder of Sahajan Skin Care, Lisa Mattam started this line of products after finding her toddler putting her beauty creams all over her face. Worried about what was actually in the creams and what was going on her daughter’s face, she wanted to create products with organic and natural ingredients for body and hair. Sahajan was inspired by Lisa Mattam’s traditions from back home – Kerala in Southern India which is rich in Ayurvedic traditions.

Ayurveda is simply the “science of life” , a 5,000 year-old system developed in ancient India and used in over 80% of households today.Ayurveda embraces the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of health while  seeking to balance the heart, body and mind, using plant-based medicine, diet, yoga, and meditation. Oils are a huge component of Ayurveda, and these Ayurvedic oils play a crucial role in the Sahajan Skincare product line. Lisa worked with a team of scientists in Canada to formulate the products with the assistance of Ayurvedic doctors in India.Ayurvedic medicine has developed natural – and delicious – ways to nourish the skin. 

The Protective Face Serum (50 ml / $70 CAD) is a silky rich serum that’s full of beneficial antioxidants such as – Coconut Oil which nourishes and hydrates, while Honey helps repair the delicate skin around the eyes. Triphala, a powerful antioxidant blend of three fruits, helps to brighten skin’s appearance. Neem Oil is prescribed in Ayurveda as a way to reduce inflammation and signs of tiredness.Gotu Kola is a medicinal herb that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, firms the skin and improves skin elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and plumps the skin, revealing that youthful glow. 

The serum has a gorgeous and luxe yet gentle scent.The scent includes a natural accord of soft woody Cedarwood, East Indian Sandalwood Oil with traces of exotic warm Cinnamon Spice, Bold Geranium and soothing Lavender Oil topped with Fresh Bergamot plus Lemon, Lime and Orange Oils.The scent is very natural and not oppressive, and disappears as the skin absorbs the products.

The serum is a rich creamy brown shade. At first I did not like the color of the serum.As you can see in the photo, the color is not the typical white or clear colour, but beige/brown. It may look like expired or old but it is actually the true colour of all the natural products being used.

I absolutely loved this earthy scented serum. It is quite thicker than an average serum but this would be great during the winter months.  It absorbed very quickly into the skin,  despite being thick, leaving a glowy complexion. I did not experience any skin irritations or breakouts.The price point is mid to high, but the products are all rich and highly concentrated so a little goes a long way and will last several months.

I had received this a while back from one of my friends but I had just recently started using it. It is actually a face mask gift set. I really like the packaging of this product.

image

It contains three face masks the Real Clay pack , the Real Honey pack and the Real Almond pack.

Real Clay Pack

image

This one is my favorite and it smells amazing! Product claims that this wash off pack is a black clay from Belarus which is rich with vitamins and has oxygenating and purifying properties.

The product inside feels thick and gooey. I feel like I just need a little of the product to cover my entire face. After washing my face , my skin felt brighter and softer. It suits my normal/combination skin very well.

Real Honey Pack

image

This one is my second favourite and it smells and feels like real honey. Product claims that it contains natural honey extract whose vitamins and amino acids are known for its moisturizing & softening properties.

The texture and consistency of thus product is very much like honey itself. If you love honey, you will enjoy this mask. It smells really good enough to eat. After washing off this pack, my face felt soft and refreshed.

Real Almond Pack

image

This mask smells of almonds and the product claims that almond extract contains fatty acids and Vitamin E that leaves skin bright and moisturized.

This mask is very rich and thick. I am not sure if I like this mask or not. But I am sure it would be suitable for very dry / dry skin. I can see myself using it in winter but not right now. After using this mask , my skin felt nourished and moisturized.
Overall I liked all the masks and the packaging is adorable too!
