Hey pretty women? How are you all… lovely weather, I just do not feel like sitting and working!! So, I am here sipping on to a tasty cup of coffee and writing product reviews for you for some of the products that I have started using recently. One of the new additions to my skincare kitty has been this light moisturizer from Ananda Spa..
For those of you who do not know, Ananda is a very famous rather award winning spa and recently, they have launched their range of skincare products. As a general trend, I am quite attracted to herbal products that are skin friendly and devoid of harmful chemicals. Read on below to know more..
Read about my recent review about Nivea Whitening Sensitive Deodorant here
This moisturizer from the Ananda-in the Himalayas spa, is formulated exclusively for oily skin type. It contains the goodness of pure essential oils of Juniper and Holy Indian Basil.
It hydrates your skin without making it greasy and has cooling & antiseptic properties. Regular use helps to provide a healthy glow to stressed skin.
Directions for use
Apply on cleansed and toned skin. The product mentions that the use of this product is to be avoided when pregnant.
Rs.1350 for 50g
Oily and acne prone
There was a white coloured cardboard box with some Graphics in purple printed over the box.
It came in a small, transparent plastic tub made out of plastic. The cap is screw type with a lid to prevent the cream from spilling out.
It is water based and very light textured which is great as oily skin needs this type of texture only.
Holy basil, juniper essential oil
Pros of Ananda Facial Moisturizer for Oily Skin:
- The lid on the tub prevents cream from spilling out
- the tub can be recycled

- no chemicals or parabens
- no harmful effects on skin
- does not break me out
- goodness of essential oils of juniper and holy basil
- leaves a slight cooling sensation on skin

Cons of Ananda Facial Moisturizer for Oily Skin:
- The smell is herbal but is not really pleasant as in fruity or floral
- Very expensive for the quantity.. not justified
My experience with Ananda Facial Moisturizer for Oily Skin:
My oily to combination skin loves this face moisturizer texture wise as it spreads on my skin very easily and gets seeped into my skin totally. It does not make my skin greasy for long periods of time. It makes my skin appear soft and supple.
I do not find the smell very appealing but then, it is a herbal product that is free from chemicals so, in a way, it is good that the product is fragrance free. It leaves a slight cooling sensation on skin on application. It contains antiseptic properties too so, good for those suffering from acne. This rich facial cream has been enriched with extracts of natural herbs like: Holy basil and Juniper oil. It nourishes and protects your skin from the harsh effects of environmental pollution. With regular use, my skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated and the mental satisfaction that you are using a chemical free product is always there.

Whether I would recommend this product again?
All though, there is no fault I can find with this product as such, I would not repurchase it as I feel a cost of 1350 bucks for a daily use moisturizer in 50 ml quantity is not justified as per me. Earlier it was 1100 bucks and now, there has been a further hike!
