HAUL: Samra's HeaLiv Picks + First Impressions

Thursday, October 06, 2016

As y’all know I (Samra) am always on a hunt for natural and handmade skincare products. My co-blogger, Deepika discovered HeaLiv a couple of months ago. Since it is a Pakistani natural skincare brand and offers a huge variety of scrubs and other skin care and bath and body products, I could not resist the temptation of placing a huge order. So yeah, today’s post is all about the spell that they've cast on me already!

About the Brand:

The idea of HeaLiv has been conceived the young, super-talented entrepreneur Habiba Akhter. Launched in October 2015, the brand has a huge customer base already. HeaLiv deals with organic spa products and gourmet salt.

Brand Claims:

My Picks & First Impressions 

Packaging of the Products: Besides the wide range of products to choose from, the catchy names of all the products caught my attention. The packaging of all the products is simple yet attractive. The jars that they came in are sturdy and all of them were sealed with transparent film. The best part was that they had inner plastic discs, so there are no chances of the spillage and consequent wastage of the products. 

Berry Blast Body Scrub – 550 grams for PKR 600/- 
Berry Blast Body Scrub: Like our facial skin, rest of our skin also needs exfoliation. Not only it helps remove dead skin cells, but also helps with ingrown hair, which by the way freak me out like anything! What could fascinate a girl but a pink coloured scrub with a strawberry fragrance? I have a strong feeling that this salt scrub with a sweet strawberry fragrance is going to be a therapeutic experience in itself. 

Sweet & Sour Lip Scrub – 20 grams for PKR 300/-

Sweet & Sour Lip Scrub: I've struggled with the flaky skin on my lips ever since I can remember. Using natural lip scrubs has improved the pout game considerably *cheers to that*, so purchasing a lip scrub with a rare combination of sugar and salt with strawberry fragrance oil 

Mystical Cure Hand Scrub – 300 grams for PKR 350/-
Mystical Cure Hand Scrub: My hands get horribly tanned every summer. Besides, be it winter, spring, summer or autumn, they remain dead dry throughout the year. Therefore, I've been in search of a scrub which would Peppermint and Lemon Essential Oils. The brand claims about the product being capable of treating the dry elbows have me seriously excited. The invigorating fragrance of this natural Himalayan salt scrub makes it hard to resist the temptation to lick it, though! Ahem.

Foot Soak – 300 grams for PKR 500/-  
Bare & Beautiful Foot Soak: Owing to the torture that they go through every day (carrying a badass like me is not an easy job, you know), my feet need serious attention. So, I got myself the Bare & Beautiful Foot soak by HeaLiv, which is infused with Tangerine and Peppermint Essential Oils and promises to take care of the tan, keep them soft and prevent fungal infections. Expecting some serious weekend skin detoxification after long hot weekdays! 

Citrus Magic Foot Scrub - 300 grams for PKR 350/-  
Citrus Magic Foot Scrub: I have always felt that a monthly pedicure is not enough for your feet, even if you're regular with your salon rituals. From open chappals and flat sandals to kohlapuris, and khussay to peep toes, stilettos, Valentinos and what no, your feet are the poor souls who have to bear the burden of carrying you in all the different soles and heels you like to try on. Regular scrubbing is important to keep your feet clean and heels soft. It appeared to be more of a mandatory purchase to follow up the foot soak step of at-home pedicure. Get happy now feet! Besides, my feet happen to be as dry as my hands, and the Citrus Magic Foot Scrub by HeaLiv is infused with Orange and Lemon Essential Oil  would be the hydrating foot scrub I had been looking for. 

Vitamin E Intense Moisture Balm - 25 grams for PKR 450/-
Vitamin E Intense Moisture Balm: Being a victim of excessively dry skin type, I'm always on a look out for moisturisers. Having switched to natural and handmade products to a great extent, I always wanted to replace Petroleum Jelly with a natural moisturising balm since a long time. As for its fragrance, it reminds me of the childhood delight - the forever favorite Danish Cookies' boxes, one of which is lying in the home store with all the threads, which we never get to use.  

Vitamin C + E Brown Spot Removal Face Serum- 75 ml (approx.)
for PKR 1800/- (Freebie)
Vitamin C + E Brown Spot Removal Face Serum: This face serum was sent to me by the sweet owner of the brand, Habiba, along with my package as a freebie. Being a convert from night moisturisers to serums, I could not be happier. A face serum which is a combination of Jojoba Oil and Cucumber Juice, which are rich sources of Vitamin C and E seems to be the perfect food for the uneven and dull skin. Hoping to treat blemishes and dark skin around the mouth. 

All the products look quite promising, and I am already eyeing HeaLiv's Anti-Aging Cream for my mother, Headache Reliever for treating my migraine besides Massage Stones, Cold & Flu Relief Balm for the not-so-fast approaching *pun intended* winter season, Minty Mocha lip scrub. Not to forget the Watermelon Lip Tint Shimmer and Hot Cocoa Lip Balm, which have been launched by the brand recently.
