Now something about the brand

Fuschia is a brand of VKare Bio Sciences Pvt. Ltd. They are specialists in Healthcare and Biotechnology and have branched out to providing Natural, Hand-made Skin & Hair Care Products. Their philosophy “We Care” is certainly showcased in their products. Their all natural products focus on sourcing the best nature has to offer and providing that to the masses at reasonable costs.

Their Fuschia brand line is focused on skin care & hair care products including creams, gels, serums, scrubs, moisturizers, face masks and lip balms. These are available in multiple varieties usually collections across products, for eg. the Lavender collection would have a soap, scrub, gel, etc. all with the same core ingredient and generally focusing on the same benefits.

I received my pr package a few weeks ago, though I have been using Fuschia products for a while now. Their products are highly appreciated across many beauty subscriptions and so I have my little collection.

The products I received:

Pomegranate Pearls Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub

IMG_20170304_133955476.jpg

Packaging
Like most of Fuschia products, their scrubs, gels, packs, etc., this scrub came packaged in a cute 100gm plastic tub with a metallic screw-on lid.

With minimum marketing on the tub itself, it has one label on the lid providing basic details of the product.

Ingredients
Aloe Vera, Pomegranate extract, Olive Oil, Wheat Germ Oil
Free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum base, artificial tints & synthetic perfumes.

My opinion about the product
Packed to the brim, when you open the jar you can’t stop yourself from taking a moment to just stare and appreciate the beauty of this product. With a sweet, more floral than fruity fragrance and a beautiful pastel pink shade, the scrub is just gorgeous. With pomegranate extracts, this scrub is rich in antioxidants. With regular use, it also claims to delay the fine signs of aging and makes the skin look younger by exfoliating dead skin cells, un-clogging pores, detoxifying & moisturizing the skin.

A little goes a long way with this product, as even though it is of quite a thick consistency, it is quite easy to spread. The scrub is like a cream and contains tiny granules which provide for just the right amount of exfoliation. On applying it to wet skin, it melts out in to this beautiful spread which allows for a good massage, exfoliating the skin as it is smeared on. It is just perfect for the body but one may need to be a little more gentle on the face, especially those with sensitive skin.

Though it is a scrub, It doesn’t dry out the skin at all and it leaves behind a beautiful hydrated finish but I do recommend topping it off with a moisturizer.

The product is priced at ₹450 for a 100gm tub and is currently available at a discounted rate on their website. Link provided below.

My opinion about the product
On opening the jar, what mesmerizes you is a bright reddish-pink tinted smooth finish lip balm with very subtle sweet fragrance.

The product does exactly what it states. It will hydrate your lips extremely well, is non-greasy and non-sticky, stays on for a couple of hours and even helps heal chapped lips quite well. Extremely travel friendly, this is the type of balm you would want to hold close to you and carry it around in your pocket.

That being said, I personally do see a negative. For a lip balm, this is extremely pigmented! Though only natural coloring is used, it is quite in-your-face with the color quotient. I am someone who personally avoids the reds & pinks. I prefer the subtle nude shade or would rather slather on some colorless lip gloss or lip balm. This is a little too bright for my liking. This of course maybe a positive for many of you out there. It does give the finish of a highly pigmented lip gloss, rather than a just a lip balm but has no long-term color retention on the skin.

The product is also marketed as a hydration option for the rest of your body too like elbows or cuticles, but considering the pigmentation, I would avoid using this option for this variant of their lip balm.

The product is priced at ₹225 for a small jar (Quantity not mentioned though looks like 8gm). Link provided below.

Pomegranate Natural Hand Made Soap

Packaging
A beautiful pink soap, packaged in a plastic wrapper and covered with a mosaic designed paper with a sticker label branding the variant, this product looks extremely rustic and traditional.

Ingredients
Vegetable Glycerine base, Olive oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Pomegranate extract

My opinion about the product
Pomegranate extract is a natural antiseptic and has toning properties, hence the inclusion of this in a soap is certain to help tighten the pores and tone the skin with regular use. It is also said to be rich in anti-aging properties. Fuschia claims it revitalizes, nourishes and moisturizes dry, dehydrated and mature skin, soothes irritated skin, returns elasticity and helps restore its youthful appearance. Though I can’t certify all these claims in a month of use, it does definitely calm the skin down and keep it hydrated yet cleans thoroughly. It lathers just enough and you can feel the skin is cleansed after use. The stand out benefit is that unlike many handmade soaps, this does not melt out too easily and lasts a long time. I am usually a body wash kinda girl but I find myself reaching out to this bar of soap more often than not.

The product is priced at ₹225 for a 100gm bar. Link provided below.
