Review of some of The Nature's Co Bestsellers

In my earlier post here, I had shared that The Nature's Co had sent me a bag filled with samples of some of their most popular products. To refresh your mind, here's a list of all the samples I got:

  • Passionfruit-Pineapple Body Mist
  • Kiwi Exfoliating Body Wash
  • Lemongrass Body Wash
  • Mango-Mandarin Body Mist
  • Hibiscus Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser
  • Walnut-Mint Foot Scrub
  • Corn Exfoliating Face Pack

The Body Mists I have already reviewed. In this post, Ill share my thoughts on the rest of the products. Lets start off with the Body Washes first.

Kiwi Exfoliating Body Wash (Rs 775, 250ml) - The ingredients of this body wash are kiwi extract, kiwi seeds, walnut grits and glycerine. Yup, no chemicals, skin friendly and vegan as well. The company claims - Kiwi seeds gently exfoliate and cleanse the skin, leaving behind its exotic fragrance. It's a complete body polishing treatment to eliminate dry, flaky skin and refine the skin''''s texture. In the shower or bath, spread the scrub over your entire body. Rub it in to exfoliate and then rinse well. It will leave you feeling smooth all over.

My Thoughts - The smell of kiwi is delicious but it does not last long. The walnut grits are very gentle on the skin and they do the job of scrubbing quite well. After taking a shower with this body wash, my skin feels really soft and it's not drying. The con that I can think of is the price. It's definitely on the higher side but if you want a 100% natural product that does justice to its claims, try it out. 

Lemongrass Body Wash (Rs 485, 250ml) - Main ingredients are Lemongrass extract, Pro Vitamin B5, Aloe Vera extract. The company claims - Created to cleanse and purify the skin, our Lemongrass Body Wash has a vibrant, fresh and crisp smell that deodorizes and rejuvenates your skin. It has excellent antiseptic properties that help normalize oil production and reduce breakouts. This cleansing body wash can lather up in the bath or shower leaving your skin refreshingly clean, smooth and lightly scented.

My Thoughts - Given a choice between the Kiwi and the Lemongrass Body Wash, I'm definitely going to opt for the Kiwi. The reasons are - I don't like the smell of the Lemongrass one. For me, a body wash needs to smell luxurious/delicious, however good its supposed to be for the skin. This one smells like medicine so no like. Apart from this gripe, there are none really. The skin does feel smooth and it's not drying either. Can't really tell you about the deodorizing claim though coz I don't how to test that out (Do I go without a deodorant for an entire day??). And a chotu sample of 15ml is too less to figure out whether it normalizes oil production and reduce breakout :(..On a scale of 1-5, I'm gonna give this product a rating of 3.5. Nothing extraordinary, nothing horrible either. 

Hibiscus Anti-dandruff hair cleanser (Rs 795, 200 ml) - Main ingredients are Hibiscus extract,Pro-Vitamin B5, Apple Cider Vinegar. The company claims - Rejuvenate, heal and nourish your hair with Hibiscus extracts. They restore your hairs natural barrier stimulating growth and leaving it dandruff-free and silky smooth. Furthermore, it prevents split ends forming, strengthens roots and acts as an anti-dandruff agent. Apply a small amount and gently massage into the hair and scalp area. Rinse with warm water and repeat if necessary. Because it is natural and gentle, it may be used daily.

My Thoughts - Honestly, a 15ml bottle of shampoo is too little to judge whether it effectively reduces dandruff but I love the effect of this shampoo on my hair. Unlike other dandruff shampoos, this is absolutely non-drying. My hair felt soft and smooth right after the first wash and that too without applying a conditioner. I have also not experienced any hair fall either during or after shampooing. So thums up on that. The only thums down is the price. Rs 795 is way too much for a shampoo!

Corn Exfoliating Face Pack (Rs 1595, 200 ml) - Main ingredients are Corn Grits, Corn powder, vegetable glycein, Pro-Vitamin B5, Clay base. The company claims - Get a brand new face with the natural goodness of our Corn Face Pack. It has pronounced pore-cleaning and exfoliating properties that gently removes excess oil leaving the skin soothed and softer. Apply the pack on your face and neck in circular motions, leave it on for 15 minutes or until dry and then wash it off.

My Thoughts - The texture of this face pack is quite thick so I mix it with rose water and apply to my face. The corn grits are slightly coarse and might be a problem with sensitive skin beauties. However, they do not irritate the skin and does an excellent job in exfoliating. You don't need a separate scrub if you buy this mask. It dries quickly and does not make the skin feel tight and I love how fresh, clean and radiant my face looks and feels after using this mask. The biggest con is the price for sure but the quality does justify it. This one is Highly Recommended!

Walnut-Mint Foot Scrub (Rs 425 - Main ingredients are Peppermint Oil, Peppermint extracts, Walnut grits. The company claims - A soothing natural fiber foot scrub that sloughs away the rough, dry dead cells from your heels and soles. Walnut-Mint Foot scrub is the answer to dry, chapped feet. The mint invigorates while neem works to moisturize and soften your feet. Massage the micro-walnut granules to easily and effectively remove dry and dead skin.

My Thoughts - This has a nice minty smell which I like. I would have preferred the walnut grits to be a bit more fine but they do a good job in removing dead skin. The scrub has a cream base therefore very moisturising and leaves my feet soft and smooth. The price again is on the higher side but the product is worth it. Recommended!
