BLOSSOMS ORGANIC – A STEP TOWARDS
KOREAN SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Hi to All!
I am alive and struggling with life and it’s various tests. And I am sure, many of you are in the same boat too. After saying goodbye to 2020, I thought maybe 2021 will bring some respite. But, well, nature and The Almighty has some other plans. India is severely affected, losing human because of COVID19 2nd Wave. People are hugely unaware and very much ignorant and reluctant towards COVID19. They are often found paying less importance in following the given rules in order to safeguard oneself and others around from this life threatening virus. This is a mysterious powerful kinda Virus with immensely strong mutative nature. May The Almighty give all of us another chance to fulfill our dreams in this lifetime. Today’s article is all about Korean Skin Care.
Me, A Skin Care Addict
Coming back, well many of you might not be aware of my love for good skincare regime. By God’s grace, I am gifted by healthy skin. After coming back from the USA, I started having acne, pimples and bumps. It initially confused and irritated me. I tried my hands on various skincare products, yet the acne kept coming back. A friend, Clara Gomes, suggested to me about Korean Skincare Range that she swears by and thus achieved glass skin. I was intrigued by so many steps. Initially it felt absurd to follow so many steps, but after I started, there was no looking back from then. I tried high end brands for my serums and masks and moisturisers. At times, I faced difficulties in acquiring the right kinds of products.
SMALL AND LOCAL BUSINESS & ENTREPRENEURS
Then I stumbled upon a brand which is home based and follows Korean Skincare Techniques to bring change in our concept of skincare. The name of the brand is Blossoms Organic – a step towards nature by Madhurina. Her genre is Korean Skin Care. I remember ordering sheet masks from her for the very first time on recommendation from Parna.
A New Start – Blossoms Organic
A young girl of 23 years with a degree in pharmacy and so a deep knowledge on how to use chemicals and natural Ingredients protecting our delicate skin and giving out positive results without using anything harmful. She has a huge range of Skin Care Products, mostly Korean Skin Care Range. She personally customizes all her products according to her customers’ needs after proper consultation absolutely free of cost. Thus it takes a bit of time to receive the products, as individual consultation and customisation require some time.
She has a Facebook Page, where she launches her products. Anyone who is following her, can contact her and get the free consultation based on issues. Then she suggests needed products and personally customizes each product and delivers them. And you get all of that at a very reasonable price tag worth the product quality.
Her Facebook Page :
My Stash & Blossoms Organics
She caters from toners to cleansers to gels, creams, sheet masks, hair oil, hair masks, massage gels, oil cleansers, serum, oils, sindurs, hydrosols and many more all based on the science of Korean Skincare Range. After my consultation, I took from her these ones –
- Rose Toner
- Pink Splash
- Aloe & Mint Gel
- Glow & Shine
- Hydrosol with Rose Quartz
- Oil Cleanser
- Cream Cleanser
- Kororganic Under Eye Roll-on
- Green Tea & Rose Sheet Masks:Parna
- Gold Massage Gel
- Anti-tan Clay Mask
ROSE TONER :
Toner plays an important role in 10 Steps of Korean Skin Care Routine. I am absolutely fond of her Rose Toner. Using it extensively. I have attached a spray in that bottle as then I keep spraying whenever my skin feels dehydrated. It works wonders and due to the lack of any harmful chemical, it is very much safe to use many times. Priced at Rs.95 for 60ml of the product.
Madhurina sent across the Pink Splash o me. It is based on Korean Skin Care Products mostly. First, I was floolove the beautiful pink colour of the gel. Yes it is in gel consistency, making it perfect for my oily skin. When applied, it might appear to be a bit thick, but within a minute it got absorbed completely mattifying the skin yet giving out a glow too. It contains SPF 50 to protect the skin from sun rays. It is also used as a primer before applying any makeup as it makes your skin smooth. Most importantly due to its gel like texture, it’s sweat proof in nature.
According to the brand –
Gel based day moisturizer with upto spf 50.
It can replace the sunscreen as well as the day cream.
Ingredients: Pomegranate extract, red wine, and some exclusive korean essential oils.
1. Being rich in antioxidants, pomegranates neutralise the effect of free radicals in our body. The anti-ageing plant compounds in the fruit also help in stimulating keratinocyte cells (skin cells) and help in cellular regeneration thereby keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay.
2. Packed with antioxidants like flavonoid, resveratrol, and tannin, it protects the skin from aging by restoring collagen and elastic fibers. The polyphenols in red wine can help to brighten a dull complexion and the aminoacid in red wine refreshes the skin and gives it a healthy glow.
3. Sweat free sunscreen.
4. Korean essential oils mainly help to rejuvenate the skin cells and give a natural glow.
Price: 300/- (50gm) “
So you see, why I just love this product and carry it with me everywhere.
ALOE MINT GEL:
This plays an important role in Korean Skincare Routine. A gel made up of the goodness of Aloe Vera and Mint. Both the ingredients have immense potentials to repair and result in healthy skin. I love this one in summers due to my oily skin. It helps in controlling the greasiness due to excessive sweating. It gives a mattifying look.
I usually use it both as a day and a night cream in my 10 Steps of Korean Skincare. After a long tired day, it soothes my skin which is very much needed to relax the muscles. It is kind of a hydrating gel with aloe vera, cucumber, vitamin E, mint extracts and essential oils. It helps in minimizing the pores, hydrates the skin, reduces oil secretion and reduces the appearances of blackheads and whiteheads. All in all it is a great product.
GLOW & SHINE :
I was in absolute awe when I first used this product. It comes in a small bottle and looks like oil. You need very less product, pour a drop or two on your palm, rub and pat it on the face. You will get a glowing skin. It works like a strobe cream, way better than high end brands without any side effects. I always use it before putting on my makeup. It makes the skin look healthy and gives a natural glow. This can work beautifully as a highlighter too.
HYDROSOL WITH ROSE QUARTZ :
What is a Hydrosol?
“Hydrosols are water-based products made from the distillation of fresh flowers, leaves, fruits, and other plant materials. They’re a byproduct of the essential oil manufacturing process and share many of the same properties as essential oils. Hydrosols are used in skin care or aromatherapy products. They help in toning, moisturising and soothing the skin. It is definitely good for skin.”
What the brand has to say?
“Crystal Infused Hydrosol:
- It is used as glow enhancer.
2. This is used as liquid primer/illuminator before make up.
3. It is used twice a day as elixir lotion for hydration.
4. This is mixed with any gel as serum.
5. It is used as a sleeping mask.
•Quantity: 100 ml (solution with 2 piece of rose quartz crystal)
- Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. Calming and reassuring, it helps to comfort in times of grief. Rose Quartz dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibes.
- The rose quartz crystal has the ability to retain temperature effectively. Hence, if you keep your rose quartz roller in your refrigerator, it will retain that temperature for a long time and deliver the cooling effects to your skin. This is a great way to calm your skin and soothe inflammation.
- The rose quartz crystal is brimming with skin-loving nutrients such as magnesium, iron and oxygen. These elements help get rid of. Using a rose quartz roller every day helps to exfoliate your skin and promote brighter and clearer looking skin.
- The rose quartz stone has amazing skin-soothing properties. Therefore, when you gently rub this roller on to your skin, it also helps to relax all the tense muscles and facial expressions. Therefore, with regular use it helps to soften the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduces dark spots and pigmentation. “
My Take on the Rose Quartz Infused Hydrosol:-
Hydrosols play a crucial part in Korean Skin Care. I like this product. I use it everyday in my night time skincare routine. After toning my skin, I use the hydrosol on my face by patting motion. It makes my skin soft, supple, glowy and healthy and I am writing this after an extensive use of more than 3 months.
OIL CLEANSER :
Oil Cleansers play a vital role in Korean Skin Care. It is a new launch and a launch which she made after many requests. I used to tell her to launch an oil cleanser as oil helps to take off all the stubborn makeup residue from the face, especially Kajal/kohl and mascara. And here it is, my favourite oil cleanser. As soon as she made one, she sent it across to me to try it out and I feel honoured for that. I have been using it since then. As per her instructions, I apply it on my face and neck, massage it properly and leave it for 20 minutes. Then I wipe it off with a wet wipe or rinse it off with a mild foamy cleanser. It literally takes away all dirt and grime, giving a deeply cleansed face.
What the Brand has to say about it?
In Korean Skin Care, oil cleansing is a method that balances oil production and pH balance of our skin, heals acne and melts your makeup right off while nourishing and hydrating your skin leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.
The Main Benefits Of Cleansing Oils Are: –
Deep cleanses impurities and dead skin cells.
Cleanses pores without clogging them.
Removes blackheads and whiteheads easily.
Leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
Massages done while applying oil cleanser help to maintain a younger looking skin.
Applicable on- all skin types.
- Oil cleanser is used on oily skin.
=No, there is good oil and bad oil present in each skin. This method of cleansing helps you to maintain the ph balance.
‘It is used on active acne only.’
2. It will clog my open pores.
= A big no. It will deep cleanse it.”
So you if you get exposed to a lot of dirt and pollution. I swear by it absolutely.
CREAM CLEANSER :
This works as a double cleanser in the Korean Skin Care routine.One product that I have always been aware of from childhood was a cream cleanser from brands like Ponds or Lakme to take off dirt, grime and of course makeup. In between, micellar water trended a lot and I too tried my hands on it. Then Madhurina suggested that I try out this Cream Cleanser, which is powerful enough to take all that dirt and stubborn makeup off.
So I tried and trust me, it worked like magic. Most importantly it helped in maintaining hydration in my skin and didn’t strip off the softness making it dry, just like most face wash does. Being a makeup addict, I do apply matte transfer proof lipsticks and neon eyeshadow shades. They become very hard to take off at times. But with this cream cleanser, it became very easy. It is always there in my stash and in my tote bag.
KORORGANIC UNDER EYE ROLL ON :
What the brand has to say?
“KORORGANIC- under-eye roll on
It is an under eye serum with a roll-on applicator.
1. Reduce dark circles
2. Lighten the skin
3. Improve blood circulation
4. Reduce puffiness
5. Reduce wrinkles
6. The roll-on applicator will give a soothing massage.
Quantity: 15 ml
P.S. The product will only be effective if the daily routine will be improved. As with a stressful life without proper sleep, no product will work.”
My Take On It :
I would start with the ‘P.S.’ mentioned above. Yes the product will only be effective if the daily routine is improved. In order to get rid of the dark circles, daily application on a clean face is needed before going to bed. Along with that, proper sleep is important.
Stress Is One of The Main Reasons
No matter how hard we try, stress will never leave us but still we need to sleep for 7 to 8 hours in order to get rid of the dark circles. Thanks to the lockdown, web series, stress of survival the routine got messed up completely. Even though I apply the roll on almost all the days, still the results are subtle, in spite of daily application. The fault is not with the product but my lifestyle and sleep pattern. The product has all the right kind of ingredients to treat the issues. In fact with repeated usage, dark pigmentation lightens up very very slowly. I like the cute bottle and most importantly the roll on applicator which ensures no wastage of the product.
PARNA : GREEN TEA & ROSE SHEET MASKS:
Sheet Masks play vital role in Korean Skin Care Routine.I love to wear sheet masks and relax for 20 minutes. I make it a point to carry one or two always in my bag. Always I have used sheet masks on trains, buses, planes, cars, at friend’s place and of course at homes. I keep a minimum of 30 sheet masks at home In fact I push my friends to use one when we all are together.
Why if you may ask??? Well sheet masks provide instant cooling, soothing and relaxed, hydrated, soft skin. The serum drenched skin helps in hydrating the skin and gives an instant freshness and natural glow. It lifts the skin’s health in about 20 minutes. Parna, the sheet masks are not any different from other branded masks. I am a sheet mask hoarder and love to wear sheet masks and relax for 20 minutes.
It is important for me to carry one or two in my bag. I have been using sheet masks on trains, buses, planes, cars, at friend’s places and of course at home. One can always find a minimum of 30 sheet masks in my stash.The sheet mask was named after a friend Parna as just like me, she is a skincare addict too and loves sheet masks.
I bought the Rose Sheet Mask and the Green Tea Sheet Mask. Both were really good. I was pleasantly surprised. The serum drenched me and my skin with it. I loved the mild fragrances coming from both of them. It instantly lifted my mood by giving me glowing and supple soft skin. Most importantly, these sheet masks are harmless and organically made, so one can use these without panicking.

My Take On It :
With the very first glimpse of the product, I fell in love due to its vibrant golden yellow colour. It is gel in texture and is transparent in nature. Very less quantity of the product gives out amazing results. Massaging the skin tightens the skin and prevents wrinkles and sagging. The ingredients present in it are all unique, good and all are there to provide good healthy skin at a very reasonable price. I use it twice a week and already I felt tightening of the skin in various parts. It gives out a natural glow to the face. I absolutely love this product.
ANTI-TAN CLAY MASK :
This is a clay mask with the goodness of many Indian earthy powder, mostly plant based. It is to treat tan which refuses to leave us. It also helps in reducing pigments and unevenness on face. But yes regular usage is important else results won’t show. As it is a clay mask, you need to mix it up with water/milk/curd. And then apply it on your face. Keep it for 20 minutes and then rinse it off with water. You can see a difference undoubtedly.
