April 30, 2014

When we talk about going all Ayurveda, being close to nature and only applying *natural products*, do we really mean it? Of course, apart from the usual home packs that we create, or in my, what my grand mother suggests as being ‘organic'; the products that we buy in plastic bottles… are they really natural? You might want to do a background check on that jar of bottle again! Unlike other Indian brands that claim to be natural, but are in someway or the other chemically enhanced; Iraya is one such stand alone brand which really means what they claim to provide. I was recently invited to check out their Delhi store, which is located at The Promenade, Vasant Kunj. Right now as I am scribbling my blog about it, I am wearing one of their 100% natural face pack that needs to be refrigerated at all times. Not only it soothes out all the skin burns exposed throughout the day, it guarantees to leave behind a lightly moisturized skin (thank god for that!), that does not cry out for another dose of moisturization right after the application. These masks are made from finest natural sources including freshest flowers, freshest fruits and vegetables all mixed with absorbent clays for deep cleansing, toning and to rejuvenate the skin. Sweep away the dull and tired skin this summers as Iraya’s Fresh Masks reveal your brighter and smoother complexion.These perfectly blended fresh masks incorporate unique textures and colors, that need to be refrigerated and has expiry date of 2 weeks. About IRAYA The Iraya brand of beauty and wellness products was launched in 2006 by Sadatan Pure Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd. Sadatan has been manufacturing and exporting beauty and wellness products for over 20 years in highly evolved beauty markets like France, Italy, Russia …

While wandering the high street of DLF Select City Saket, I was taken over to a shop in one corner, which to me seemed like yet another unknown cosmetics brand. But when I entered the premises, I thought I had entered paradise.I was in Crabtree and Evelyn Store, DLF Select City, Saket. Well, to be pretty honest, I had never heard about this brand, until now. I was awestruck by the soothing color splashes on delicately crafted collection, the infusion of thousands of perfumes, all providing a deep spa transit for my nostrils, and when I actually tried their hand care range, I was in love with my hands. (Like love at first sight) :p What the company says ? Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family-run business – specializing in fine soaps from around the world – to an international company, well known and respected for its original fragrances, luxurious toiletries, gourmet foods – and gifts for those who enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle.
