Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil Review


Today i am going to review one product which i have purchased perhaps 3 days back and had to immediately write about it to make the consumers aware. The Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil is the grossest product i have ever used. It comes in a 10 ml pack and costs INR Rs 300. Not only the money went down the drain, but the pain and suffering that came alongwith this one product is worth to be shared.

What Organic claims about the Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil ? : The citrusy and sweet aroma of this essential oil gives an emotional upliftment when used as diffuser.

This Essential Oil can be used for :
  • Healthy young beautiful skin.
  • Supports collagen formation and hence acts as anti-wrinkle.

  • Promotes hair to grow longer and fuller.

Body, Mind & Soul
  • Stabilizes and calms mind.

Composition / Ingredient : Pure Orange Oil

Precaution : Essential oil to be used only along with carrier oil for massage. If oil gets into the eyes, rinse them with plenty of water. Not recommended for children below 3 years.
Do not apply directly on the skin.
Essential oil can be allergic to the skin. The user is advised to use it at his own discretion.

How to use : Add 6-8 drops of the oil per 30 ml of product (scrub, lotion and cream etc). Add 4-6 drops of oil to an aromatherapy diffuser to scent your space or directly into a bath.

Now, coming to the result after using this Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil. I used this only once alongwith the skin toner. Put 2 drops of this oil in 30 ml of Organic Neem Tulsi Skin Toner and applied it on the face and within seconds, the cheeks started burning as if i have poured some corrosive substance on the skin. The skin also got red and irritated and it was really painful and stinging. I immediately rushed and applied ice cubes within 2 minutes on my face, and also washed my face with cold water. But nothing was really helping. It took almost 40 minutes when my skin got a bit normal, a bit irritation was there on the skin, and still the cheeks were red and swollen. I applied a L√≥real moisturizer and somehow carried on with my work. After 3 hours or so, the swelling and redness disappeared.

Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil comes in a miniature glass bottle with black plastic lid. Alongwith it comes a glass dropper to take the product and use. It smells of orange, a very strong artificial scent it got, which i really did not like and you can get the smell far from the next room. The oil is totally colorless and since you cant apply it on the skin directly dont know whether it is sticky or not.

Organic Harvest Orange Essential Oil is a big NO NO for me. I made my mother to try this too on her hands in a very less quantity just for review purpose, and it was stinging still. So in both the cases the product is a major FAILURE. I would suggest you guys not to buy this product at all unless you want a pain therapy.

Nivea Waterlily and Oil Shower Gel Review


Generally i am not at all a fan of shower gel, however someone got this Nivea Waterlily and Oil Shower Gel and another Nivea shower gel for me, and i had to try them. This one comes in a 250 ml pack and costs INR Rs 185. It lasts for more than 2 months i guess, and since i dont use this regularly, it is lasting for more than 4 months and still some of it is left.

What Nivea claims about the Nivea Waterlily and Oil Shower Gel ? : Tempting freshness meets pampering care.
Stimulate your senses with the feminine scent of Waterlily, while this silky fresh shower gel with replenshing oil pearls turns into a soft caring foam - making your skin feel sensationally soft.

Ingredients : Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Parfum, Sodium Chloride, Propylene Glycol, Lactose, Methylparaben etc.

Nivea Waterlily and Oil Shower Gel produces some lather, not a lot though. It has got a mild scent. I usually use this as a face wash. The shower gel is basically transparent with some yellowish microbeads in it. Cleans the body well. A few drops on the loofah is enough for whole body and one drop of the gel is enough to cover the face. Its a very mild wash. And makes the skin feel soothing and gentle.

I already have another shower gel from Nivea so i wont be repurchasing the Nivea Waterlily and Oil Shower Gel in near future. Also i am not into shower gels actually, i love bar soaps more.

Today i am gonna review the H2O+ Total Source Optimum Serum. It costs INR Rs 4500 for a pack of 30 ml. The outer cover is white in color, while it comes in a plastic bottle which is grayish steel color. It has got a pump dispenser. 

What H2O+ claims about the  H2O+ Total Source Optimum Serum ? : H2O Plus introduces Total Source Optimum Serum that nourishes your skin religiously to make it firm and bright.

Essential Ingredients

The extracts of clove flower reconstructs the formation of collagen fiber that will give you youthful skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This serum is also composed of yarrow root extracts that reduce skin discoloration and reveal a radiant complexion.

Dermatologically tested, this serum is safe to be used and gives you healthy and smooth skin.

Ingredients : Aqua/Water/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Diglycerin, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Algae Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Cladosiphon Okamuranus Extract, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Extract, Tocopherol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Carbomer, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Conchiolin Protein, PEG-32, PEG-6, PEG-75, Potassium Hydroxide, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Polyacrylate Starch, Sorbitan Stearate, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum/Fragrance, Limonene, Linalool.

How to use : Apply to cleansed and toned skin twice daily. For best results, follow with Total Source All Day Cream and/or Night Cream.

H2O+ Total Source Optimum  Serum was used only once a day and as it is summer and quite humid out here, no other cream or anything was used alongwith this. It absorbs really fast and is non sticky. Coming to the results dont know about the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, however skin got definitely smoother and brighter as has been claimed. You can definitely use this as a good moisturizer or night cream and get better skin tone. If you are expecting this to work on wrinkles and fine lines, you may not be happy! One pack easily lasts more than a month.

Overall an okayish product, i would not repurchase H2O+ Total Source Optimum Serum as i have got many other stuffs to try on and this product is not that cheap too so definitely would love to try other skincare stuffs.
