I’m back with another skincare review for you all. I did a Just Herbs haul a while ago and got a few things from their collection. Since the last few years I have been big time into organic skincare. I try to use as little chemicals on my face as possible as I have chronic eczema and I dont like irritating my skin with some extra chemicals (read my eczema story here). I first tried Just Herbs when I got a sample size of their sunscreen in my Fab Bag a few years ago. I just loved how that sunscreen felt so I decided to order some more skincare during a Nykaa sale.
Price – 495/-
The packaging is pretty standard with a round tub and a round thingie that separates the lid and the product so it does not spill. The gel is clear peach in colour and is a bit sticky to the touch. I generally use clean, washed hands to take some out.
The gel spreads easily on the skin and only a little bit is needed to cover the entire face. On its own, it does not provide enough moisture to the skin. I generally use a heavy duty cream like Cetaphil on top to keep my skin hydrated. The gel claims to get rid of pigmentation, spots etc. I am not 100% happy with the claims on lightening the pigmentation. I have a lot of pigmentation on my chin which flairs up a bit more during an eczema breakout hence I am always looking for products that lighten that pigmentation and make the skin look more even.
I used this for about a month or more and then stopped using it when I could not see any visible effects. It does impart some glow to the skin but its nothing that noticeable for me. Maybe it’s just my skin type because I have seen other reviews and people just seem to love it. The gel does not sting or irritate the skin even when I do have a breakout. For people with oily skin, they can just use it on its own and skip the moisturizer on top.
Overall, I expected more from this gel and I am a bit disappointed. Wish it had worked better on my skin. If you decide to try it out, or have tried it already do share with me how it worked for you all 🙂
