words: Ambica Gulati

Nature’s power is packed in many ways. And Inveda’s way of doing it is giving a glow to our bodies. There’s a lot to be said about ayurveda, and it helps in every woman’s eternal quest to keep looking younger and better.

Pixlr_20150126101902993So when I got the packet with the Anti-ageing night cream by Inveda, I thought it’s going to be slow and maybe not so fulfilling promise. But I have been in for a surprise. I have been using the cream for more than 20 days now. I would say, I do feel my skin has visibly lightened and it feels healthier. The cream even went in my travel bag to Agra with me. My verdict is it works. I would not say that it’s a miracle cure and you are suddenly 20! But yes, it does lighten the dark patches, relaxes the skin around the eyes and makes you feel good at night.

Packed with saffron and cardamom, it could used over long term to see how long it can help ease off the ageing lines. Saffron is an expensive herb but it has purifying properties and is anti-bacterial. It helps improve blood circulation, tones and lightens the skin.

Cardamom helps in hydrating, has antibacterial properties, helps in blood circulation, gives skin a tranquil effect.

The fragrance is good and the cream smoothens out easily. It is soft and my suggestion is do use it on your neck too. That said, the product has been well researched and is also not expensive. It is priced at Rs 350 for 50 ml. I liked the packing too. It’s full of colours of the earth and sun—orange and brown. In fact, the top is a burst bright hues—red, gold, green.

Pixlr_20150126101945892Another cream which made it to my travel bag was the Vedic Line Choco Strawberry Lip Balm. The changing weather, the rough winds and I thought it would do me good to carry it around. It turned out to be a wise decision. The dry winds did cut my lips and the Choco Strawberry did succeed in repairing them in two days. I put it frequently during the day and before sleeping at night. The taste is a little bitter but the result is soft. And you don’t need to put a lot. It spreads easily and swiftly. As it is not greasy, it would be useful during summer too.

Cocoa is said to be packed with antioxidants that help repair skin cells and neutralize harmful free radicals. It also has Vitamin E.

Strawberry is the queen of fruits. Little wonder then that this queen is packed with some great properties. It has vitamin C, antioxidants and exfoliants, has skin lightening properties, is effective in removing age spots and freckles, has ellagic acid which protects the skin against ultraviolet rays. The queen of fruits is also astringent in nature and can reduce puffiness and dark circles beneath the eyes.

The lip balm bottle needs little space and is priced at Rs 85 for 15 gm.
