When I posted about the Just Herbs haul, I got most comments linked to Just Herbs Petalsoft. I personally wanted to start using the Fennel & Manjistha Rejuvenating Beauty Pack but curiosity got the better of me and I started using Petalsoft. So, after a month of using this almost three times a week, here are my views about it - awesome or skip it?

|Ingredients and How to Use|
How I used Petalsoft and my views -
I keep this tub of Petalsoft in my refrigerator. Every alternate evening, I take out half a spoon of this and mix with either normal water or rose water or yogurt. Then, I pat it on my face and leave it to try. As this is a fuller's earth based face pack, it dries very quickly so, I either put a muslin sheet or a clean sheet mask at times to make it work for longer on my skin. After that, I pat some water on my face and massage gently in small circles to take it off.
Petalsoft smells like rose water which feels very relaxing. The texture of this Just Herbs face pack is not fine and do have some grainy bits which helps in mild exfoliation while removing the face pack.
I found that Petalsoft is not only a nice relaxing, calming and moisturizing face pack but also give a nice glow and better texture. I do think it has helped in removing some tan on my forehead but I have not measured it and one month is far less time to say anything related to removing tan with 100% confidence.
I always see face packs as a way to relax and calm down skin. If the face pack also helps in improving skin tone and texture - Bingo! And I can absolutely say now - BINGO! But, I will not shout 'bingo' because there is one issue I had with this face pack - I cannot use this after use of any scrubs or when my skin is feeling very irritated - like after being in the sun for some time. I feel some slight tingling sensation around my nose and only around my nose. I am yet to connect why this happens actually.

Overall - Just Herbs Petalsoft is a great product for summer. Petalsoft gives a nice glow, calms down my skin and gives it a better texture. Sad that it is causes tingling sensation around my nose at times but at least I can use it on my cheeks and forehead at all times! But, I do prefer using it on evenings for a better relaxing effect - fight off the damage caused by the dirt and pollution whole day. Unless you have an extremely sensitive skin and no issue with rose water smell then I will say - Go for it...
Food for Thought - Here in India, we are looking for something to remove tan and there is are people on this planet trying to get tan by tanning beds, tanning spray or a beach holiday! This world is BIG and AWESOME.
