I love to travel and especially in an unreserved general class train or in Passenger train. Because they are very cheap, kind of experience and I reach my destination. I do not look for so much comfort, but the main issue is safety. Safty of wallet, smartphone, bag etc.
Last time when I have traveled, I have was wearing Balista Joggers pants because they are having zipper pockets. I felt very safe to keep my wallet and smartphone in the pocket. The brand was unknown but tried my luck and found that the quality of the dress was comparable with major brands like Adidas, Nike etc. Which are super expensive to buy.
You can buy them on Amazon India If you do not know, Amazon having very good after sale service. Even after my review, If those Balista joggers fails to impress you, you can just return the product within 10 days and get the full refund as per amazon return policy! Because of such a nice return policy, I feel secure to shop online on Amazon and their customer service is just amazing. You can chat or request a call, they will resolve your issue very fast. Way better online shopping experience than Shopclues, eBay…
Like a ‘fancy box of chocolates’ version of face creams.
+ The packaging is thoughtful, with some nice grasses and individual small containers and a nice box.
+ Soft skin noticed after 1 week of daily use.
+ Can make a nice gift due to packaging and the size.
Quantity of cream is small-to-moderate (15 or 25 grams each)
Likely to last a month or two if used daily
+ The experience of lemongrass is the most prominent of all the ingredients.
– The packaging is excessive from a ‘waste point of view’.
– Two of the creams appear to be the same in terms of look, smell, and feel.
– The face scrub is a bit sticky compared to other products in the home.
– It can be time consuming to use all 4 creams (5 minutes + 5 + 30 + … )
All four appear as the same with slight a change in colour and a very very very subtle change of smell. So subtle I’m more convinced it’s my mind telling me there is a difference rather than my senses actually detecting a difference in scent.
All textures are similar except for the scrub which has little micro beads of unknown material.
The quantity of cream is quite small. The directions say things like “apply a generous layer” or “apply a thick layer” which suggests that it will be used up over a short time.
The packaging appears to account for most of the weight of each container and the box uses a lot of packaging space for a small amount of actual product. Consider what you are actually buying here: a sample of a variety of creams.
May be useful as a gift or as a starting point and later if you like it you may wish to buy a larger version of the product if available.
We can see the reality of this packaging thing in how 3 of the containers each contain 15 grams of cream and the 4th contains 25 grams of cream, yet each container is the exact same size from the outside.
It’s sort of like a ‘box of fancy chocolates’ version of face creams…and all the chocolates are more or less the same except for the one with nuts…
Mostly it is the lemongrass experience that is noticed while using the product.
Soft skin noticed after 1 week
Used every day
Takes time to do the full 4 of them..like an hour..
Did you find a difference among 1,3,4?
1 and 3 are the same
2 is a face pack and is wiped off after 30 mins
Do you prefer 2 or the papaya cream?
Papaya cream. 2 is a little bit sticky
Look: mix of big chunks and smaller pieces, all the way to powder.
Smell: woah! Amazing! Yummm. Smell of cinnamon is the most prominent.
Taste: sampled big chunk of mystery brown stuff…taste tells me it is tamarind.
Internal experience: excitement to try. Desire is building
After brewing reflections
Look: Bronze colour looks healthy more than it looks appetizing. Much like milk Chai tea looks delicious much more than it looks healthy! After some time there is a mat of residue on the bottom of the glass that passed through the strainer and the liquid has gained clarity.
Smell: slight cinnamon smell with some sweetness. Pleasant aroma.
Taste: keynote is the tamarind at the forefront. Aftertaste is bitter and astringent. Holding in mouth it is sweet and pleasantly warming.
Internal experience: energizing, some soft activity in the stomach. The urge to drink more comes with the refreshing feeling. Some heat in the face is felt after some time (30 minutes or so.) Tiredness came and after est for about an hour then a bowel movement happened, and the bladder was relieved before that: showcasing its effectiveness in clearing the body out, and in a gentle way.
Intention: To review this tea as a drink only, not over a duration as a detox nor weight loss tool.
Research note: among the active plant medicine ingredients is Garcinia cambogia (named Uppage in Kannada language, Karnataka, India.) According to Wikipedia it has similar culinary usage as the common tamarind plant: Taramindus indica. Hence, the prominent tamarind taste in the flavour profile.
