Body & Face Oils in India: Look Beyond Iaso & Hebe Review
Best Body & Face Oils in India: Look Beyond Iaso Stretch Marks Oil & Hebe Anti Wrinkle Oil Review & Price
I have always been fascinated by body & face oils though I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a fan. The heavy and sticky feeling isn’t exactly exciting but after using the Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil I realized that not all body oils are heavy and work more like body lotions but with more potent ingredients. There is quite a dearth of good and effective body & facial oils in India but thankfully there is a new brand ‘Look Beyond‘ catering to this need now.
Look Beyond is the brainchild of Dr. Seema Anand whose aim is to provide holistic wellness to its patrons.The products contain 100% natural ingredients without any use of chemicals and are environment friendly. They have a good variety of products ranging from bath gels to linen sprays and body oils aiming at burning fat, boosting metabolism, growing hair etc. Today I will be reviewing Hebe which is an anti wrinkle oil serum & Iaso which aims at fading stretch marks.
Look Beyond Hebe Anti Wrinkle Oil Serum Review, Price & Buy India
Price: Rs 2195
Quantity: 30 ml
Can be bought online at Amazon
The Look Beyond Hebe Anti Wrinkle Serum comes in a small glass bottle with a dropper. The dropper eases usage as you can easily control the amount of oil to be dispensed. The oil is very light and runny in texture. You are supposed to take a few drops and mix it with a lotion or creme to apply it. All anti aging products are tested on my mom who has started getting very peeved with me for changing her skincare regime so much. However, after knowing this essential oil serum is made purely of natural oils she was more than happy to test it out.
Hebe has a slightly strong ayurvedic scent which does not bother her but might be an issue for some. It dissipates once mixed with a lotion.She has been using this regularly for the past 3 months mixed with her day cream. She hasn’t witnessed any mind blowing results but her skin definitely looks more radiant. It feels soft and firmer but there hasn’t been much of a noticeable change in her fine lines. Since it is natural and free of silicone which is what most anti aging skincare products contain these days, she is more than happy to continue using it as it will not harm but better her skin in the long run. The 30 ml bottle will easily last 4 months as you require a tiny amount everyday.
Look Beyond Iaso Stretch Marks Oil Serum Review, Price & Buy India
Price: Rs 745
Can be bought online at Amazon
The Look Beyond Iaso Stretch Marks Oil is packaged exactly like the Hebe Oil but obviously with different labels. It too comes with a dropper which makes usage very convenient even though it reminds me of a medicine bottle :p I have been using the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter along with the Skin Therapy Oil which have been quite effective for my stretch marks so I had my sister try it out who has been suffering from post pregnancy stretch marks.
It is very essential to apply heavy body butters and keeping your body and skin well hydrated during pregnancy to avoid stretch marks. While my sister was very religious with it the first 2 trimesters but she just got tired of it by the third one which led to quite a few marks on her belly and thighs. She has used this daily for the past 2-3 months has witnessed significant results. Her stretch marks have considerably lightened and she recently bought herself another bottle after finishing the first one! She used the oil directly on the marks which smells of tea tree oil and she finds it quite relaxing as well. The only issue I have is that why don’t they mention the full ingredient list? Just an “essential oils” mention doesn’t cut it for me!
Overall, the Look Beyond products favoured quite well with us and I’d personally love to try their bath gels which sound quite heavenly and the linen sprays for a calming sleep! Though the price is a little steep but competitive compared to other natural & organic brands, plus you need only a tiny amount hence the products last a good amount of time. Currently, the products are only available on their website and it’d be great once they start retailing on major e-commerce websites.
Update: The Look Beyond Products are available on Amazon India
