“Bhogi” is the day before Sankranti (Pongal) festival in Tamil Nadu, where people burn waste outside their homes to ward off waste & evil and welcome goodness into their homes. Hence, the smoke too…. 🙂
Keeping aside that, I am gonna review a face pack today from an in-house brand – Prakriti Herbals.
Its the Prakriti Herbals Rejuvenating Face Pack.
I bought this face pack as part of a skincare kit (4 products) offered by Prakriti Herbals.
Following are the products that come in the kit –
- Rejuvenating Face Pack
- Aloevera-Rose Gel
- Strawberry Face Wash
- Walnut Face Scrub
Price: INR 120 for 60 ml.
The kit with 4 products comes for INR 450.
Shelf life: 1 yr from date manufactured.
Check out the below pic for the same.
All the 4 products mentioned above, come in similar packaging.
The products are housed in a transparent plastic tube with a flip-open cap. Easy-peasy, hygienic & travel friendly packaging in the first look.
What the product claims:
Enriched with fruity natural extracts which rejuvenate & hydrate the skin, giving it a glow.
The way I see it:
Let me tell you first that all the 4 products smell amazing in its own way.
This face pack smells that of some men’s shaving cream IMO.. don’t worry.. it ain’t that bad.. 🙂
Even before the fragrance, you would notice the consistency of the face pack. It is too very thick & tight inside the tube.
I really wondered how am I going to manage to get the product out & have it spread on my face! 😮
It is very tough to get the product out of the tube..One has to apply all the pressure in the world to squeeze the face pack out.
Though packaging is quite useful, the consistency of the pack makes it tough to be content with.
Everytime I press & squeeze the tube, I hope I don’t break the tube…This is a big con for me.. 🙁
Okay..enough bad-mouthing on the packaging.. let’s talk about the product now..
The texture is so smooth & there are no grains found in the face pack.
Though the product is too tight & thick in appearance, it just melts in contact with the skin.
It glides like a dream on the face.
It applies thick at some places.. all you need to do is try spreading it with some rose water..and yo! you are done..
There is a cooling sensation on the face & some tingling here and there after application..which is totally bearable.
I have used this face pack 5-6 times so far.. and last 2 times I felt some itching sensation in parts of the face.
The pack dries off in 8-10 minutes time. There is some stretchy & tightening feel on the face as it dries.
I splash some rose water, do a light massage & continue to keep it on the face for 15 minutes as mentioned.
What you get is fresh, brightened skin – once you remove this face pack.
There is no dryness whatsoever – I have tested it without a follow-up moisturizer too & my skin was still supple & hydrated.
The brightness from this face pack lasts for a day. It is also safe to be used everyday on the skin.
No zits or breakouts..only mild tingling…and itching at places (I wonder why??)
I totally love this face pack…I am happy with the ingredients listed..and the effect it gives on me… 🙂
I am sure this product would suit all skin types.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
I have quite a list..
- Impressive ingredients

- Brightens up the skin
- Brightening effect stays for a day

The ‘Nay’ factors:
