People ask me how I can try so many different products? What if they harm you? Well, what if they don't?

It is not like I randomly pick things up. I read the ingredients list. Without a doubt, I have also developed a bias for few ingredients which generally work for me like charcoal and clay. There is a list of products that I can honestly trust. 

Right at that moment, I find something on Amazon with all the exact ingredients - Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1. I asked the seller more, and he decided to send me few of their products. You might have already heard about this brand. You can read more here - Greenberry Organics.

Now, I used it right after I received it. I was at Nagpur during that time. The next day, my skin felt dry and flaky. Something was wrong. I had my doubts on this but going by ingredients list, there was no way it could happen. I didn't use it again but my skin condition deteriorated - red and irritated even by plain water. But, I was not sure if this was to blame. I shared a pic on Instagram. To my relief, one of my dear friend Rini mentioned that is very common in Nagpur during summer. My skin was not used to the dry heat. On top of that, I cannot promise that I was wearing sunscreen every time I stepped out. Opps. I went to my MIL's place where I used curd as a face pack. Everything was resolved. It was a bad case of sunburn.

It took me some courage to pick it up again for use. Now, the tub is almost empty.

It is good.

Greenberry Organics Mud Ash can be used as a cleanser, mask, and scrub.

Ingredients: The ingredients are very potent, and they do warn that one should not keep it for long. Maybe because of the tea tree. 

Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay, Glycerin, Aqua, Aloe Vera Extracts, Activated Charcoal, Walnut Shell Powder, Phynoxy Ethanol, Xanthan Gum, Chamomile Extracts, Tea Tree 

But, they have recently updated their formula. If you buy now, you get an even better mix of ingredients:

Kaolin Clay, French Green Clay, Natural Glycerine, Zinc Oxide, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis), Bentonite Powder, Turmeric Powder (Curcuma Longa), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis), Activated Charcoal Powder, Pentavitin, Jojoba Beads, Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia), Clove Oil (Syzygium Aromaticum), Vitamin C And Vitamin E.

Nice to see that they have removed Phynoxy Ethanol. Also, Charcoal is pushed down the list because there was no way that the formula has a high concentration of charcoal. If you have worked directly with charcoal, you will know that in high concentrations it just sticks to your skin. (More on that in next post about Activated Charcoal and Uses).

Fragrance: When it was new, it smelt like it overloaded with tea tree oil, but the scent went down with use.

As Cleanser: It lathers well and the walnut shell makes it an exfoliating cleanser. It washes off completely without making skin dry. Only one question - how does it create those bubbles? I see no ingredients here which can create lather. 😶

As Mask: You can keep it on only for three minutes. No more than that because the brand warns against it. So, not a big fan here because for me face mask is the time when I can let my skin recharge while I cut off from the world and have some 'me' time. Three minutes is far too less for 'me' time.  (I think the warning is removed for the new formula). Not that I have not tried it. It used to have a cooling effect like The Body Shop Tea Tree 3 in 1 but the effect dwindled down later. It is no longer as cooling as it used to be. Also, I do not notice any radiance added to my skin after use. Nothing out of the ordinary. Not even on the next day like what I found with FabIndia Charcoal Scrub. It spreads easily even with the walnut shells and washes off completely.

As Scrub: Now, this is how I love it. It is the strongest scrub that I have owned to date. Thought it exfoliates like a champion, it does not irritate. If you are looking for a physical exfoliator, then you have found gold here. Flaky skin and blackheads do not stand a chance to survive. If you have blackheads issue, then you have to own it. Scrub once a week and you are sorted. 💪

Overall: I thought it would be cooling and help dry out pimples like The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 and give a glowing effect like FabIndia Charcoal Scrub. The best of two of my favorites. But, it wasn't able to keep up to my expectations. They have upgraded their formula so, the new one might work. 

Buy it: 
  • If you are looking for a strong physical scrub which is not too harsh yet scrubs away, then you have to buy this. 
  • If you have oily skin. 
  • If you suffer from clogged pores every now and then.
  • If blackheads are driving you crazy.

Ignore it: 
  • If you are looking for a one stop solution, then it might not be the best one out there. 
  • If you have dehydrated skin. For dry skin, it can be too drying. If you have dry skin but still wish to use it then try to keep it on the skin for as less time as possible. 


Price: Rs 595 for 100gm. But, they keep on running offers on Amazon.

Love,
Shayoni

PS: Sorry for the super long review.
PPS: I will be sharing you about 'chemical' exfoliators soon. This is something that I have discovered only a couple of months back.
