I have always indulged in using multani mitti, sandalwood face packs as a part of my self pampering ritual and absolutely love researching and trying out packs that can be made in my kitchen. When I came across Sugarmyylove, a home-made packs, gels and creams brand by Himra Minhaj in Chennai, I couldn’t say no to her offer to try out her products.
Moreover, she was very forthcoming in supporting my giveaway for moms on Mother’s Day 2017. The winner of her products was excited to receive goodies from Himra and couldn’t stop raving about the products over a call.
I thought I’d pen down my thoughts about the products that were sent to me.
Tea tree under eye balm – I’ve developed dark circles after my pregnancy and as a new mom I don’t get enough sleep. This balm was sent on request and I love using it at night before going to bed. Its been nearly two weeks and I feel it’s suiting me. I plan to continue using it as I wake up to my under eye area looking better. The key ingredients include almond oil, olive oil, shea butter, green tea extracts, tea tree oil and vitamin E oil.
Although the product is good, I only wish it was packed well. It is a small plastic case which became a bit leaky.
Price INR 250
Lip Balm – It is enriched with shea butter, cocoa and mango butter, almond oil, castor oil, olive and avocado oil. I haven’t been using it regularly but just few days ago I started Ramadan and fasting. This makes my lips very dry. Applying this balm has certainly helped.
Price INR 250
Toxic pack – Just like the name suggests, it frees your skin from all the toxic elements thus getting you rid of all the impurities. I had heard people raving about activated charcoal packs recently but never tried one until the toxic pack came to me. It is amazing! I would certainly recommend this. Price INR 300
Face Clay – It is a combination of the best clays from around the world. The Moroccan red clay – reduces heat boils, french pink clay – detoxifies the skin and gives an overall refreshed appearance, calamine clay – has anti itching and healing the skin properties (most needed when we have a skin breakout), rhassoul clay – rich in magnesium, silica, potassium and calcium. The molecular structure of rhassoul gives it a unique ability to absorb oil and dirt from the skin. Kaolin clay – makes oil skin smooth. Bentonite clay – heals and lightens acne. I tried the pack just this past week and felt my skin tighter the next morning. I’m going to start a once in two weeks routine with this pack and see how it suits me. So far, so good 🙂
Price INR 600
If you’re someone who likes to take care of yourself at home with all the natural products then I’d recommend that you connect with Himra. Except for the packaging, I didn’t see anything that would stop anyone from trying out these products. Himra was happy to take care of this based on my feedback.
My personal favorite amongst the above 4 is the activated charcoal toxic pack. Also, the best thing about this brand is the reasonable pricing. Pamper yourself and take care 🙂
