Happy with it

It is infused with keratin and argan oil. Leaves hair straight, shiny and smooth, just the way I wanted. Don't apply on scalp. For best results, use it after Tresemne Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner, and on towel dried hair. The texture is not sticky and I like the smell of the serum more than shampoo. I use 2 pumps for my hair. Packaging can be improved as serum had leaked out if the bottle. Suitable for both natural and chemically-treated hair. Available in different sizes P.S. I have going fine and wavy colour treated hair.

A great coconut hair oil. Non greasy texture. Good consistency. Smells good too. Use it pre shampoo or leave over night. Soothing scalp massage after a stressful day. Have a Happy soft and shiny hair day after washing. The packaging could have better to avoid leakage during travel. Give it a try.

Love it

A very soothing gel one must carry in their handbag or pocket if you are planning to wear new shoes or shoes that cause you irritation. I end up with a shoe bite or two when I wear brand new shoes. So this is a great find. It's gel, it's non greasy and doesn't make it sticky.

Multi-use product

Multipurpose oil for skin and hair. Smells good. It's mild and gentle. Not greasy and absorbs well into the skin. Going to try for cooking too... Only suggestion is to improve its packaging so that it can be carried in a travel bag. It leaks if not placed vertically. Added bonus is that it's cold pressed..

This is a great product for dry skin during winters. I have used the soap for more than a week now. My skin feels soft, is smooth, supple and hydrated The dual benefits of Natural Glycerine and Lakshadi Oil makes this soap a must try during winters....not to forget the signature Medimix smell...

Lathers well. Smells good. It's mild and gentle. Moisturises the skin well. Is not sticky or greasy. The shape is also very ergonomic. Only drawback is that it dissolves / melts fast. For oily skin, won't recommend it for use on face. It comes with a soap rest, which is very useful.

This ones Lavender Bouquet. There are many fragrance types available from floral to fruity. You can use it in any of the habitable spaces. The pump and handle are ergonomic and very easy to use. Don't spray in excess. Spray just the right quantity. This one has a MILD fragrance. P.S . Don't spray too close to a wall, may leave stains. If you spray it on the ground, will leave it sticky..

Good mild fragrance

Ambi Pur Car Freshener : The Air Spa! This ones Lavender. But Aqua is my Favourite as it's mild. It has controls varying from 1 to 5. It stays for 30 to 60 days depending on the control level. Refill bottle is easily available. Worth buying... One suggestion is to have a Control 0 to avoid evaporation of the liquid. P.S. The fitting is a bit loose. So keep away from kids. If they pull out, the liquid could leak.

I have been using natural Aloe Vera Gel on my hair lately before shampooing. Last week, I decided to give this product a try. And this products meets my expectation. It has a dispenser pump, which make it easy to use. Good consistency. Not greasy. Only suggestion is that, the mild fragrance could be better. Not very happy with it. P.S. Please apply on a small patch of skin, just to make sure that it suits your skin.

Well, DO TRY maybe it suits you

I love products from St.Botanica. Hence, I decided to try their 'Biotin and Volumizing Shampoo'. It has a peculiar flowery smell. The packaging is good and the bottle comes with a dispenser. To be honest, this shampoo didn't suit me. May be it suits you. DO TRY 😊 P.S. I have fine and thin hair. I didn't condition my hair after shampooing

Fresh and Nourished Feel

I have been using a lot of St.Botanicas products lately and I really like them. Their Bulgarian Otto Glow Night Cream is currently my favourite (along with the Day cream). I really like the look and appeal of the packing. A little strong fragrance for my liking None the less, smells and looks yummy. The consistency of the cream is good. After using the Night cream, my skin is more smooth, has a glow and feels fresh and nourished. The Night Cream is priced Rs.999 but is value for money and definitely worth a TRY.... Use the Night Cream ideally along with the Day Cream.. I generally Cleanse and Tone, before applying the cream..

I have been using a lot of St.Botanicas products lately, and I really like them. Their Bulgarian Otto Glow Dry Cream is currently my favorite (along with the Night cream). I really like the look and appeal of the packing. A little strong fragrance for my liking nonetheless smells and looks yummy. The consistency of the cream is good. After using the Day cream, my skin is more smooth, a tone lighter, and has a glow. I haven't provided any rating for sun protection because I haven't stepped out of the house due to the lockdown. The Dry Cream is priced Rs.999 but is value for money and definitely worth a TRY.... Use the Day Cream ideally along with the Night Cream...

Could be Better

I love most of St.Botanicas products and have been using their range for quite some time now. Recently when I used the Eyelash hair growth serum, I was a little disappointed. This is the first time I am using a serum on my eyelashes. To start with, I don't like the smell and consistency of the serum. Also, it would have been lovely if it was less greasy. I have been using the product for 4 days. I do like the packaging of the product. No irritation to the skin, and it gets well absorbed into the skin; I have combination skin. I guess it will take a while for my eyelashes to grow. So let's wait and watch 😊
