How was your Holi? I hope you enjoyed to the fullest and had a super colorful Holi. Holi for me is a festival which makes me binge eat the delicious “gujjiyas”, “shakarpaare” and “namakpaare”. I am not a person who would play Holi vigourously and neither do I love painting faces with harmful chemicals. I stick to organic and herbal colors totally. After Holi was over, some of my cousins complained of getting skin irritation and rashes because of the harmful chemicals present in the “gulaal” and the color pastes.
This made me wonder that we tend to harm our skin and hair just for fun and later on whine when the side effects show up. I was going through the chemical composition of these harmful colors and what effect do they have on our skin. I was utterly shocked and disappointed too. Let us quickly go through these colors, their chemical composition and the side effects that they leave on our skin:
I have a habit of researching a little bit about every product that I may apply on my skin or hair. With cosmetics being an integral part of my daily lifestyle, I stick to natural and herbal products for my daily skincare and hair care routine. Greenberry Organics is one such brand and its products came just in time and I can’t thank Greenberry Organics enough for this. However, there is something special and rather interesting about Greenberry Organics. Scroll down to know how Greenberry Organics is different from others.
Greenberry Organics is the first brand in India to get ECOCERT Certification. All of their products are 100% plant derived and contains Bio-Active ingredients. All the ingredients used in the manufacturing of Greenberry Organics’ products are bio-degradable and safe for the environment. Greenberry Organics is also certified by Natural Products Association (NPA), USA which is the first and only natural products certification in the USA. NPA is followed by manufacturers from all around the globe. Greenberry Organics also believe in complete transparency and they provide a list of all the ingredients used in the manufacturing of the product.
Apart from all natural and Ayurveda blended products, what makes Greenberry Organics stand out from the other brands is their women-centric organization. Greenberry Organics have 75% female staff and they are determined for the cause of women empowerment too.
You can check out more about Greenberry Organics from their website.
Now, let us quickly see the products that I receive from Greenberry Organics. They are as mentioned below:
The first product that I received was Rose and Jojoba Oil Face Wash (100 ML). It comes in an impressive bottle and is super compact. Yes, you can take it anywhere with you. Coming to the composition, it has two main ingredients namely Rose Oil and Jojoba Oil.
This is a non-foaming face wash and after the first application itself, I could feel that it did not leave my skin dry. This is the one thing that I look for in every face wash before I buy it. Most of the face washes available in the market tend to leave your skin dry after application. In addition to this, the moisture was retained for quite a long time and my skin was left glowing and clear.
Rose and Jojoba Oil Face Wash is free from sulphate and paraben too and it has a natural pH level and maintains perfect pH balance after application. This product is suitable for all skin types too. It has a very sweet fragrance of rose and lingers on for a long time. I am not a lover of rose fragrance but for those who love the rose essence, this product is the perfect pick.
I need to use this product for a couple of weeks more to see how effective this product is for fighting acne. I will be updating this section with my verdict on the acne-fighting property of Rose Oil, so keep watching this space.

The next product is Fresh Cucumber Mint Toner (100 ml). This product is bliss for dull and oily skin types and best for rejuvenating your skin after a tiring day. Girls, this is also an excellent makeup remover and helps in minimizing the pores without tightening the skin too much. Let us now talk about the ingredients of this product:
For me, this is an excellent makeup remover and it left a soothing sensation on my skin after application. The fragrance is also refreshing and lingers on for a long time.

The last item that I received was Bio Active Intense Night Cream (50 gms) which is a hydration and anti aging cream. With this product, I am able to pamper my skin while I sleep. Just apply it and leave it overnight and let the finest ingredients do their job and help you recharge your skin. Let us quickly go through the ingredients:
This cream is non-sticky and very lightweight. It did not leave any sticky residue behind. The fragrance is quite soothing and the cream moisturizes the skin well. I need to use this product for a couple of weeks to see how effective it is for removing fine lines. Keep watching this space to know more.

1. Will I recommend Greenberry Organics to others?
Yes, I would definitely recommend Greenberry Organics to others and why not. People should know about Greenberry Organics and how they are bringing a transformation into the skin care industry by making products from Bio-Active ingredients. Greenberry Organics is a women dominant organization with 75% women staff and is setting an example for everyone by empowering women.
2. Value for money?
All the three products that I received are very reasonable and super affordable. The quantity is also good and considering the goodness all these products possess, I would say that Greenberry Organics’ products come at a very fair price.
3. Will I repurchase products from Greenberry Organics?
4. Which product did I like the most?
I love the Fresh Cucumber Mint Toner the most because of its soothing effect and refreshing smell. It revitalized my skin without making it dry. In addition to that, it is also an excellent makeup remover.
5. Any cons of using Greenberry Organics’ products?
Since I do not like the fragrance of Rose, I was not quite happy with the rose essence of Rose and Jojoba Oil Face Wash. But after using the face wash, I tend to like the product because it treated my skin in an excellent manner. Apart from it, I cannot think of any cons. However, for a person who loves the rose fragrance, this is the perfect pick for you.
Additionally, I always recommend going through a patch test before using any product. Products that work on my skin may not work on your skin in the same manner.
