Green Tea Face Care Range
All this time, when I mentioned in my Youtube videos that Indian brands are stepping up in their game when it comes to skincare, I wasn’t joking around.
After being introduced to the green tea face care set thanks to a fellow Youtube and friend, I decided to pay heed to the umpteen number of requests from my subscribers and buy the products.
Now for someone who suffers from adult acne, one needs to be more careful when it comes to investing in good skincare products. This brand did not disappoint.
The green tea kit caters to oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. Plum cosmetics is a vegan, cruelty free brand that provides a chemical free skincare range. So think paraben free. Winning!
Since it is infused with antioxidants and also has glycolic acid in them, it is great for targeting those pesky acne spots and also helps in eradicating dull and tired looking skin.
1) Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash
A gentle cleansing formula with anti oxidant organic green tea extracts with skin renewing glycolic acid retaining the polyphenols and a mild natural scrub
How To Use
Take a coin-sized amount in your palm, work up the lather on wet face, rinse and pat dry. Use twice daily.
This comes in a squeezable tube and is travel-friendly. The consistency is like a gel with tiny round green beads which feels like a gentle massage to the skin. The fragrance is not over powering and quiet refreshing.
This takes away the dirt, oil, and toxins accumulated in the pores . Nor did it dry my sensitive skin out. So, that is a bonus point for people with oily to combination skin. It left my skin fresh, clean and soft. A great face wash.
Price Rs. 345/- | 75ml
2) Green Tea Clear Face Mask
This natural bentonite clay-based formula helps to cleanse, soothe, control acne, prevent recurrence and exfoliates and brightens your face, gently.
How To Use
Apply a thin layer all over the face , taking care that the product isn’t around the eye area. Wait for 30 minutes till the mask dries up completely and wash off with plain water. Use once a week only.
I can see why this is sold out every time. Bentonite Clay masks are so good for oily skin and since this mask has Green Tea extracts, it is a great source of anti-oxidants which keeps the skin to be oil-free, clean, detoxed and helps in unclogging those pores. An important step for every face mask.
After applying, I did experience a bit of a tingling sensation for the first few minutes, but that is normal for a bentonite mask to react that way.
I noticed how well it got to work and removed the grime and dead cells from the skin. It left a super clean and radiant skin tone . I was extremely impressed and I noticed it did not break me out the next day. Ace!
Price Rs. 475/- | 60 gm
3) Green Tea Alcohol-Free Toner
Alcohol free toner with organic antioxidant green tea that provides a fresh , taut feeling after application without drying the skin out.
How To Use
After using the face wash, pour out a small quantity of toner on a cotton pad and apply it to the face. Give special attention to the t zone areas
This is my second bottle after my mother stole the first one away. She loves it as much and I couldn’t ask for a better toner for my face. It not only refreshes the face but helps in minimising the pores and taking away the further dirt residue that is hidden away in the skin, including stubborn makeup.
Please note, this isn’t meant to take off your eye makeup and could cause a slight burning sensation around the sensitive areas of the eyes. I highly recommend buying this product.
Price Rs. 380/- | 200 ml
4) Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer
A silicone free, matte finish moisturiser with hand picked non comedogenic ingredients.
How To Use
Dot your face with the moisturiser and gently massage the cream in to the skin using your finger tips in a slow upward and outward circular motion. Apply on neck as well.
This provides a non shiny finish to the skin and has ingredients to compact acne too. This moisturiser is great for oily skin, since it leaves a non sticky and matte feel to the skin.
I use this once a day and usually it is in the morning after applying sunscreen and then proceed to applying my makeup. It gets absorbed into the skin within seconds and there is nothing heavy about this face cream. Yet, it left my skin supple and hydrated.
Price Rs. 470/- | 50ml
My overall view on this range is that it is worth every penny. It is very rare to find good quality Indian skincare brand that helps acne prone skin in the most gentle manner and is cruelty free too.
Here is a kit that is budget friendly, works like a charm, ticks every promise that the brand makes and does its best in helping you achieve that problem free skin.
P.S : They gift you a cute straw pouch bag along with the kit. I’m a sucker for such attention to tiny details.
