So I love stuff which is more true to nature and free of chemicals, especially parabens. A few days ago, I had to take part in a very controversial topic about animal testing (good versus evil) and my take was pretty shady, since my opinion is very two-way too. On one hand, I totally believe that animals have done nothing wrong and should not be tested upon, but, on the other hand, I also believe that there will be lives sacrificed for the betterment of othersâ€¦. And animals, unfortunately, are the â€œothersâ€ here.

However, I want to tell you something today.
I will stick to more animal tested products in the future, I think.
Let me introduce you to the product which has done something to my skin. I was pretty excited to try it out, as I am an herbal-products lover girl. The times I have bought products off Fabindia, Khadi and Akansha (local brand, but great) is too many to count, and I recently hauled in a few more too.

My Take onÂ Eco Essentials Organic Turmeric Body Scrub Cake
This is one product which had SUCH potentials. Indeed, when I read the ingredients list, I was overjoyed to see a huge array of natural stuff. Like, green gram, virgin coconut oil and stuff which were ideal for babies! And, the next thing I loved, was the packaging. So simple. So compact.Â So Organic.
So I used it. I peeled off the organic shell-like cover, unwrapped the waxed paper.
And unwrapped this.
Doesnâ€™t look very nice, my heart said. Actuallyâ€¦ it looks like —
Shut up! My brain retorted, Its Organic! It doesnâ€™t need to look nice.
So I ran to the bathroom with the bar, and decided to take a bath.
And I scrubbed and scrubbed, and this started to show its true colors.
Never have I seen something soap-free show a lather which was like this. Maybe, maybe there was some soap here.
Nevermind, my mind said, proceed with the rest of the body. So I did.
Soon, the top layer of the soap was removed to reveal a layer of what only can be called sandy particles stuck to the soap which made my skin itch when I scrubbed.
Good God!Â I can feel my skin clearing up as I bathe! God bless you, Organic Soap!
Very soon, the beautiful bubble burst. Right after Iâ€™d rinsed off and come out of the bath.
The first sign that all was not really well was the dryness of my skin. I ran to my Johnson and Johnson baby bedtime lotion to moisturize.
Then came the itch.
All of a sudden, there were tiny itchy scratchy things springing up my body, and the next ten minutes I spent â€¦ well, letâ€™s not talk about it.
So, to sum up, I donâ€™t think I qualify for writing this review any further, because I have a deep seated issue against this product. This product has done my skin quite a good bit of harm, and yes, the company claimed to be nature-loving, herbal and all. BTW, it also did a good bit of harm to my unsuspecting sister and mother too, so I am pretty much negative about this product.
