Jo’s Organic – Turmeric Mix/Ubtan (Brighten & Glow pack) Review




Last year, i was facing skin issues, acne, black heads, patchy skin etc. etc. i dont want to visit a doctor, as my preferences was to search some herbal totka, for this.  I worked alot and done some research over this and found some people / pages who are passionately working over herbal products and trying to change common people mind set  so that they can get some really reliable skin care stuff containing all natural / herbal ingredients.  Let me start this with " Jo's Organic Beauty", their intro and their Face Pack.

Jo’s Organic – Turmeric Mix (Brighten & Glow Pack)

This face pack is made from organic fruits extracts, finely ground herbs, flowers, and root powder which are sun dried and carefully blended, it can be used as cleansing scrubs or as face packs for deeper exfoliation.

Its not only help in giving you a fairer complexion, but they also fight other skin problems like acne, pimples, blemishes, dark spots, tan, wrinkles and blackheads, whitehead, and skin tanning. 
All the ingredients used are organic and natural therefore; it does not have any harmful side effects and suits all skin types.

How to make:

Take one table spoon of the turmeric mix powder, add a small amount of the rosewater, fresh milk or yogurt, mix well until the mixture achieves a smooth and creamy consistency. apply this paste of mixture over your whole face and leave it for 20 minutes and wash off.


My Experience:

Last year i was facing acne, blackheads and patchy skin issues so me truly was searching any herbal product to get rid from all skin issues, i found Jo's on facebook and decided to talk to the owner of this page. I called Ms. Jovita, and discussed about my skin issues, after a long discussion, she suggested me Turmeric Mix/Ubtan Brighten & Glow pack.

When i was making a paste of the pack, i feel, ... ahem ahem... its look like, i am mixing something normal gram floor, as i am a big risk taker so i just ignored the feelings and applied paste over my face, wait for 20 minutes and washed my face. OH MY GOD, it works like hell, truly...it recovers 50% my skin issues only applying single pack. it make my skin glowing, my acne gone within two days. I cant expect such quick and amazing results from this :) Jovita you win the heart. <3

My nieces facing white heads over her face and neck (on jawline), i applied this pack over her face and neck, and YES her white heads gone within two days too. la la la

I wont claim, that this pack give you whitening effect like Chitta, but i am damn sure this pack give you a radiant glow, give you 100% result for acne, dry patches and works great for dark spots too.

Highly recommended especially our teens, facing acne issues, pls pls pls try this lovely magical face pack and get rid from acne.

Happy shopping with Jo's Organic.


PS:  Before buying any skin related products, its highly recommended to consult your dermatologist, or read the ingredients to avoid any allergy or infection.

Beauty UK CC Cream, Review.


Hi Beauties,

Hope life is treating you good. 2013-14 was fully loaded with BB creams fever and after that we caught another virus called CC cream.  Today, I am going to review one CC cream, which I am currently using almost on daily basis.

As everybody talked a lot about BB so I am skipping this BB thing and directly jumping to CC cream.  

CC stand for Color Control or Color Corrector, now I am going to review Beauty UK CC cream and sharing my personal experience.



Beauty UK CC Cream


My Experience:

I love its packaging, available in black squeezable wide tube and a tinny nozzle.  Product texture is average thick, just like normal liquid foundation. When i open it and start applying this product I just start loving it, its very light weight. Though I already tried many BB creams and already knew their formula but this one is better than anything, truly.  I am addictive to apply foundation with my foundation brush as I feel comfortable with it so my experience with foundation brush is amazing, I applied this CC cream all over my face and neck within seconds.It gives me just flawless foundation effect. It balanced my skin, hides almost 70% uneven skin and gives me airbrush effect. Wow, what els you expect a CC cream han... :)

It has the capacity of HD foundations as well, because it hydrates the skin after application and gives you a powder finish look, only HD foundations has such quality or specialty. One more positive point, it contains SPF 30, which is the almost highest rate of SPF and a CC cream containing this ... Amazing...



I am a foundation freaking person and tried lots of foundation from different brands in different types and forms, on basis of my personal experiences which I got normally over my own self, my family or my clients. From 1-5, I will rate this CC cream 3% above than BB creams and only 1% below of any good liquid foundation. Yes only 1% . Coverage is light to above medium and if you follow the buildup foundation coverage technique you will get medium to full coverage. Yup its true ;)


My skin tone in NC 25, and I am using 20 Fawn color which is exactly matched to my skin tone.


Price: £4.99 


Available colors:

10 Natural
20 Fawn
30 Biscuit

Availability:  Easily available on all leading stores.

So far, i didn't found any negative point except they have only 3 colors in their collection, as its a CC cream so better to swatch this and hope you get the color according to your skin tone. :)

Following the launch of the brand’s new website, renowned couturier HSY introduces two new pret lines; “HSY Brings the World to Pakistan” Collection and Limited Edition “Cricket World Cup Kurtas” for both men & women.

The inspiration for “HSY Brings the World to Pakistan” collection stems from the designer’s extensive travels and his experiences with new cultures and places around the world. Through this collection, HSY seeks to share intimate moments from his travels and global experiences over the years, through the versatile medium of fashion. Starting from February 2015, the brand will introduce a themed extension to the collection, based around the culture of a new, dynamic city from across the Globe each month - featuring thematic design elements representative of that city integrated into traditional designs, making the collection a fusion of cultures with a surprise twist. The collections will consist of formal and semi-formal designs in small, medium and large sizes. The outfits have been beautifully embellished and use fabrics ranging from raw silks and chiffons to cotton nets and cotton silks, in diverse color palettes that vary with respect to the city the collection draws inspiration from.

Commemorating the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, HSY launches a limited range of Cricket World Cup Kurtas celebrating Pakistan’s participation at the prestigious tournament. The Kurtas feature three designs for men and one design for women based in the iconic color palette of Pakistan’s National Flag; Green and White.

Speaking about the new collection and the limited range of World Cup Kurtas, designer HSY said, “I have travelled around the world and have experienced beautiful, rich and diverse cultures. Through this collection I want to share the World with my country. We have integrated a host of design influences from the west as well as the east with the rich culture of Pakistan to come up with something decadent, unique and inspiring in the signature HSY style.”


“Cricket’s biggest summer has begun and shortly the best players from the best cricket nations will come together across Australia and New Zealand to compete for cricket’s ultimate prize, the ICC Cricket World Cup. We at HSY wanted to celebrate the Nation’s love for the sport, hence, the launch of our limited edition of Kurtas. My team and I wish Pakistan all the best and hope our team can repeat our 1992 World Cup winning performance”.
