Jivavrksa Herbal Face Pack Review

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

I am a face pack on and chill kind of a person, more so in the summer when a different kind of skin problem starts to creep in, as soon as spring is done playing peek-a-boo with me. The darned skin starts to get oily, starts to accumulate dust and dirt like a little girl collecting shells at the sea shore, and also starts befriending enemies in the name of acne, skin irritation due to heat and sweat and sensitivity due to scorching sunshine. By the way this time of the year is not probably the best time to follow what Helen Keller said, 
'Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It's what the sunflowers do.'
You better keep that pretty face covered, taken care of, or else you would have to deal with a different kind of shadow altogether, if you know what I mean.
If you have following my journey of blogging and writing, you probably read about it, in many face pack review posts that I love nothing more than to relax with mask on and catch up on my favorite TV shows. I have an oily skin, touch wood which is not an oil tank anymore all thanks to the Kumkumadi tailam that I have been using. But still it does get shiny by the end of the day. I don't know though, how it would behave on even hotter months, only time will tell. The point is, I need a face pack which would absorb the oils, would impart a glow to my skin and take away the dullness. If it dries out my acne, that's an added bonus.

Today, I am writing about this face pack from Jivavrksa. To know more about the brand please do read my previous posts here, here and here. This face pack is a multani mitti (Fuller's clay ) based with sandalwood, rose petals and orange peel.

Retails for Rs 150 for 75gm

Its just your basic multani mitti face pack with a little bit of extra something. No uncommonly known exotic herbs, but rather the well known ones which many of us might have been using since we were young in some shape of form. I know I have rubbed sandalwood on stone to form a paste and applied on acne to dry, heal and get rid of marks. I had saved and dried orange peel during winters and made a paste with masoor dal ( red lentils) to exfoliate skin in winter and make dull skin glow. To be quite honest, it did not quite appeal to me, it seemed very plain and generic.

Clay based face packs are not advised to be used daily, so I use this weekly twice. Make a paste with water, some times also with rose water and apply all over cleansed face. Let it dry and then wash off thoroughly. I try not to engage myself in any conversation, laugh with pack on, which may lead to unnecessary fine lines. I just completely relax with AC on, sometimes with lights off, just as my mood may please. Multani mitti does absorbs oil, dries down acne, now don't get excited on it. It does not dry them completely but definitely helps. After washing off, my skin does have a certain clean subtle glow, which sadly is gone by the next day. None of the ingredients irritated my skin and no residue to face packs seeps into the pores.

Overall, the face pack is very affordable, the quantity would last you for a long time. It's a good choice if you are looking for a fairly good quality multani mitti based face pack for summers.
