Banjara’s Multani Mitti with Papaya Face Pack Review

Did you know that Papaya does not only tastes good but it also has a lot of health and beauty benefits. If you are wondering how? Well it contains an enzyme called ‘Papain’ which helps in removing dead skin cells and it is also a rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, Magnesium, Pantothenic acid and also acts as a great antioxidant.

We all have been using Fuller’s earth or Multani mitti in our skin care regime since ages. What if you get Multani mitti with the benefits of Papaya? That’s exactly the product I am going to talk about today.

Banjara’s Multani mitti with papaya face pack

Product description:

Banjara’s brings to you Multani Mitti + Papaya, in its purest form taken from the palms of Mother Earth, to give you the best skin care secret in just 15 minutes, Multani Mitti clenases skin, absorbs escess oil, opens up pores while Papaya protects the skin from blemishes and pigmentation giving you clear, flawless skin.

Ingredients:

Price: Rs. 50 for 100 gms

Packaging: The product comes in a cardboard box which contains 5 sachets with 20gms product each. I love the fact that it has multiple packets instead of one with the entire product. The claims, ingredients, directions for use, price etc. are written on the back side of the box.

My Experience with the Banjara’s Multani Mitti Papaya Face Pack:

The product is in a fine powdered form. It smells really good. As you rinse it off, your skin will feel super clean and refreshed. It does help in controlling oil (for people who have oily skin) and acne too. Regular use of this face pack can help in fading away blemishes. I have used this face pack couple of times and i did not experience any breakouts or other skin issues.

How i use it?

I mix the required quantity of powder with water or rose water to make a thin paste. Then i apply it all over my face and neck using my hands or a face pack brush. I let it dry for about 15 minutes and rinse it off.

People with dry skin can mix the powder with milk instead of water or rose water. You can also add honey as it is a great moisturizer.

Where to buy?
You can easily get it in your local cosmetic stores or buy it online here.

I hope you all liked the review.

Home Remedies to Remove Sun Tan

I had recently been on a vacation to Goa. Goa is one of my favourite holiday destination as I love beaches. But along with beaches comes sun tan and in my case the tan takes forever to fade, if I wait for it to fade on its own. So this time I decided to try out some home remedies to help me get rid of that stubborn sun tan quicker.
Below are details of some of the home remedies that have worked really well for me.

  • Lemon juice: Cut a lemon and directly rub the slice on the tanned skin. Allow it to sit for few minutes and wash it off. You can also add some honey to lemon juice and apply this mixture.
  • Bengal gram flour and turmeric: Mix a tiny amount of turmeric with two tablespoons of gram flour. Add enough milk and rose water to make this into a thick paste. Apply this mixture to the tanned areas and leave it for 15-20 minutes before taking it off.
  • Cucumber juice, lemon juice and rose water: Mix one tablespoon of each ingredient and apply it on the tanned skin generously. Wash it off in 15minutes.
  • Masoor, tomato and aloe vera: Soak one tablespoon of masoor dal in water and make it into a paste. Now add aloe vera gel and tomato paste to the tanned area. Keep it on for 30 minutes and wash it off.
  • Yogurt and tomato extract: Mix one tablespoon of both yogurt and tomato paste. Apply it on the tanned areas, leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off.
  • Potato juice and lemon juice: Mix one tablespoon of potato and lemon juice each. Apply and leave it on for 30 minutes then wash it off.
  • Sandalwood paste: Apply sandalwood paste on your face once daily and wash it off once its dry.

All the ingredients can be easily found in your kitchen. Do give these home remedies a try and let me know about your experience.

How to Lighten Dark Lips? 💋


Dark lips? This is very common among we girls. I myself always had pigmented lips. Not too dark though. To hide them I always wore lipstick. But that’s not the ultimate solution. Hence, i researched a lot on how I can get rid of this pigmentation. Recently a friend of mine also asked me to post about this. So I thought why not?

Today in this post we would cover the reasons that cause dark lips and how to get rid of it?

The thickness of the skin covering lips is much lesser compared to rest of the face. Also the melanin present in the lips is lower than the rest of the body. So you must be thinking what causes dark lips? Below are some factors that cause dark lips:

  • Excessive exposure to sun light as this triggers the production on melanin.
  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • High intake of caffeine
  • Allergic reactions
  • Low quality skin lightening products
  • Low quality cosmetics
  • Hormonal imbalances

    How to lighten dark lips at home?

    1. Exfoliation: It is very important to exfoliate lips in order to get rid of dead skin cells. Mix lemon juice with sugar and apply it on the lips. Now gently scrub your lips in circular motion. Do this every night before hitting bed. You can also gently exfoliate your lips using a soft toothbrush.
    2. Rose petal mask: Soak rose petals in small amount of milk. Make a paste of it and apply like a mask every night before going to bed. Mix a little honey to give extra moisture to your lips. Use this daily and you will see noticeable change in just few days.
    3. Rose water and honey: Mix rose water and honey. Rub this on your lips gently. Do this daily before going to bed.
    4. Fruit and vegetable juices: Pomegranate, Beetroot, Potato, cucumber, Lemon, juices of all these is very helpful in lighting dark lips. Just extract the juice and apply directly onto the lips.

      Some Tips:

      • Avoid licking your lips.
      • Use good quality lip products which have some amount of SPF in them.
      • Exfoliate your lips.
      • Cut down on caffeine, smoking and tobacco.
      • Hydrate your body.

      I hope this post helps you in some way. Do leave your views in the comments below.

      DIY Purple Decorative Lights 

      Hi Beauties,

      It’s a different kind of post today. Apart from makeup I also love decorating my house and i specifically like DIYs as i can use a lot of items which are lying waste.

      So today I will share with you all how I made these beautiful purple decorative lights.

      Things you need:

      • String of lights (any colour of your choice). I choose purple ones.
      • Cupcake paper liners (print of your choice). I have taken a floral pattern.
      • A screw driver (to make holes)

      Process:

      1. First of all count the number of bulbs in your string. This is exactly how many cupcake paper liners you would need.
      2. Now using a screw driver carefully make holes in the center of the bottom of each paper liner. Make sure you do not tear the paper liner. Also ensure that the hole is not very big.
      3. Now pass through a bulb in the hole of each paper liner.
      4. The open mouth of the paper liner should be facing outwards.
      5. Now simply hang it wherever you want and connect it to the electric socket. I suggest to hang it surrounding your door or window frame. I have hung it on my bedroom door and it looks absolutely amazing.
      6. There you go! It’s that simple.

      Try it yourself and also let me know if you liked it.

      Hack it Wednesday: One Vaseline Five Uses

      Hello Beauties,

      Today I am going to talk about our very own Vaseline petroleum jelly. We all have it lying at some corner at our house. You might definitely want to dig in for it after reading this post.

      Below are five different and unusual ways you can put that lil jar to use again.

      1. As a Makeup Remover: Just take a generous amount on your palms and rub it all over your face. Then gently wipe it using a cotton ball.
      2. To make a cream blush: Now you can make your own customised cream blush. Just rub your favourite lipstick on the back of your hand. Mix this with a lil vaseline and there you go!
      3. Avoid lipstick stains: If you are tired of those ugly lipstick stains on your teeth, try rubbing some Vaseline jelly on your teeth next time. Thank me later !
      4. Make perfume last longer: Applying perfume to a moisturised skin makes the fragrance last much longer. Just apply vaseline to the pulse points before spraying on your perfume and enjoy your favourite fragrance for even longer.
      5. Tame those Eyebrows: Dot a lil vaseline on a clean mascara wand and brush through your eyebrows to tame those eyebrow hair and make them stay in place.

        Untill next time… Keep loving yourself ❤

        The Eyelash Curler Hack:

        To make eyelash curling a super easy and quick task, try heating your curler using a hair dryer. Cool it down a little and use it on your lashes. Then apply mascara as usual. It will not only make your lashes look beautiful but also will make them stay that way for longer time.
