Come Summer, and you want to enjoy fresh looking skin and a gorgeous mane. If you’re a naturals enthusiast, you must try Sand for Soapaholics. Today, I am going to be reviewing two of their products I tried: Aam Leela Face Mask and Yellow Submarine Shampoo.
Aam Leela Face Mask: We all look forward to some tasty mangoes in the summer. And I think it’s one of those fruits that you can EAT and APPLY! I’ve been using the 20 gm Aam Leela Face Mask for about a week now and I have to say, I am quite impressed with it.
The first thing that takes you by surprise is the smell: you can smell Bentonite Clay, Kaolin, Mango of course! I couldn’t place which essential oils they have used and when I read the label it said Rosehip oil and avocado oil along with basics like curd (not yoghurt) and honey.
The application is very simple: remove any traces of makeup and make sure you apply it on a clean face. I’m a firm believer in not using a face wash right after you apply a mask until directed to. It’s a very light mask and doesn’t weigh your skin down. Rinse with cool after once it’s dry.
Yellow Submarine Shampoo: When I looked at it, the first time I thought it’s a handmade soap. It was only when I read the label that I realized it’s a shampoo called Yellow Submarine, that claims to suit most hair types.
I don’t recall a very distinct smell: it was mild yet pleasant–just the way I like it. I think it was just the natural fragrance and something that’s added in most shampoos from cosmetic brands. Being honest, it also reminded me of Lush solid shampoos.
A lot of people think that solid shampoos will not create lather but this did–same as my bottle of Tresemme, L’Oreal or Wella. While I was rinsing my hair out–I realised that my dry strands felt a bit drier and I decided to use my usual colour protecting conditioner. I think this is a boon for people who have oily hair or scalp irritation–it’s got everything from Tea Tree Oil to Neem and Walnut oil and Turmeric.
Having said that, for the shampoo to be stable and last a year they have used the usual 2 ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate. But it’s sulphate and paraben free–it lathers up and cleans your hair very well. So maybe going natural this summer with your hair is probably a good idea.
