Thursday Plantation Organic Tea Tree Oil Shampoo Review

Standard

From the time I’ve been in UAE I’ve been complaining about Hair Loss and I know there are a lot of people out there who are going through the same. Plus in this hot summer with me always wearing my scarf + my long hair my scalp definitely gets oily and sweaty and you know the result! DANDRUFF!!! Nooooo!!!!!! ūüė¶

After trying several shampoos from several brands nothing worked. My scalp was always itchy. While doing some research I came across this organic shampoo Thursday Plantation Organic Tea Tree Oil Shampoo. This shampoo is from Australia and has got so many benefits since the main ingredient is Tea Tree Oil. Click here to know more about Tea Tree Oil. A shampoo with pure tea tree oil can be beneficial for those who suffer from dandruff, scalp irritations or infections, as well as for all those who simply want to benefit from the health promoting benefits of tea tree oil. Unlike conventional/commercial shampoos this shampoo contains no SLS, parabens or other harsh chemicals or preservatives.

Well I love the scent of this shampoo. It simply smells good and fresh, rather than having it be fruity or flowery. The scent is obvious, but delicate and not too strong nor overwhelming in my opinion. The smell fades once the hair is dry. I use it on my fine, long and straight hair and it leaves my hair soft, clean, shiny and manageable. Those having problems with their scalp I definitely recommend this product. If you tend to have dry hair then do get the conditioner as well.

Can be bought from all major Pharmacies in UAE

 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil – Acne Remedy

Standard

Tea Tree Oil

 

I have been struggling with acne for years and years and no need to mention the amount of products I have tried…. pfffff!!! And one of the best product I have tried for my Acne has been the Tea Tree Oil. My sister recommended me to try it.

This oil is available at The Body Shop has a very strong smell and I like it. Does burn your face a little, especially where you may have acne, so if you have very sensitive and easily irritable skin, you may mix it in your moisturizer and apply. Further more, the product is actually quite drying to the skin which is a plus for me since I have super oily skin. My skin felt smoother and softer. In the past I have been using Benzac AC which helps in curing acne but this cream would make my skin super red with some burning sensation. So if you want something more natural go for the oil.

Tea Tree Oil can cure many other things like Dandruff, Athlete’s Foot, Yeast Infection, Fungal Infection of Toenails as it contains constituents called Terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and anti-fungal activity.

The oil is sold at The Body Shop for AED 30 for 10ml. It is a bit pricey for the amount but its worth it!

Moisturizing Socks do they work?

Standard

Moisturizing Socks 1&2

 

Hey Everyone, there are people no matter how much they care for their feet they still end up having a fair share of calluses, dry patches and cracked skin. Even those who regularly use a pumice stone and foot lotion might find that the forces working against their feet. Not to mention the climate as well has a major role such as dry weather, hot showers and open shoes. And comes in picture the Moisturizing Socks!

 

So good news… thanks to the Moisturizing Socks now you don’t need to put vaseline, oil or heavy cream on your feet, then wrap them in cellophane and then put on a pair of socks until morning to have soft and smooth feet! All these steps are¬†time consuming and Moisturizing Socks makes life easier!

 

So what are Moisturizing Socks?

Well to start with there are 2 different types of socks. Those that you pull on over heavily lotioned feet, and those that come with lotion built in. But today I will review those with built-in lotion.¬†These socks are really convenient as you don’t need to deal with applying creams or lotions or worry about purchasing one separately.¬†These socks comes in different scents like¬†lavender, mint and tea tree and the moisturizing ingredients are typically avocado oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, vitamin E and jojoba and¬†are contained in a polymer gel that comes in the sock itself. See below how it is inside.

 

Moisturizing Socks with Built In Gel

How to use?

 

First you need to wash your feet using lukewarm water and a soap-free cleanser to avoid drying out the skin. Use a pumice stone or exfoliating scrub to clear off some of the dry, callused skin on the heels and soles of your feet. This will help the moisturizing ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin. Rinse and pat your feet dry instead of rubbing them with the towel, which could remove too much moisture. Then apply moisturizing lotion, cream or oil.

 

If you are using a gel-type moisturizing sock, you may skip this step. Apply the moisturizer as soon as you can,¬†preferably within three minutes of drying off to seal in as much moisture as possible. If you struggle with athlete’s foot, try¬†to avoid getting moisturizer in between your toes.

 

Usually the socks comes with instructions telling you for how long you should wear them which is usually from 30-40 minutes. But you may also wear it overnight.¬†These¬†socks also come with nonslip soles, so you can pamper your feet while you do chores or other work around the house. Cool right! ūüôā¬†If you have very dry skin, using the moisturizing socks on a daily (or nightly) basis might be worth considering. However, once or twice a week is usually adequate for most people, but be sure to pay¬†attention to the directions.

 

How to take care of your socks?

You do need to treat these socks with care to get the most use out of them. Most require hand washing, and because they already contain the moisturizing ingredients, they will run out of these ingredients after several uses.

I personally enjoy these socks as they are really comfortable and lightweight. And they do work perfectly! First time I had worn them they felt a bit cold but then gradually you can feel some heat inside which means they are working. This is a product I definitely recommend if you want to pamper your feet!
