Heylo Peeps, hope you all doing well. Excited to share a new brand with you all today. It’s all about “Alanna”.
I have been following this brand since last few months. It was fun participating in their Earth Day Contest through their Insta Stories. Secondly, they chose few bloggers for a review marathon and I was glad to be a part of this group. They sent their 2 best seller products. Would review the first product here today which was Golden Glow Face Pack.
Before the review, let’s know something more about Alanna.

After reading the ingredients I’m sure many might come across new ingredients. Let’s dig in more to know how does they help us. For those who are unaware about Vetiver let me tell you all it is known as “Khus”, “Khus-Khus” and is known for its grounding and calming effects used mostly in perfumes. It’s best to fade the dark spots or scars and for a even skin adding softness. Vetiver oil is used widely for aromatherapy.
Second product which we only consume as a fruit and are unaware about its benefits are Avocado Oil. Avocado is the best in treating of blackheads and acne. They result in smooth skin texture.
Hope this helps my readers to decide whether this product suits specific skin.
An ideal formulation of Turmeric powder, Aloe Vera and Avocado oils is specially designed to soothe dry skin and acts as a skin care agent. Turmeric provides a great brightening effect on the skin and maintains the skin elasticity along with keeping a check on the release of oil levels in the skin. Avocado too reduces the appearance of age spots while restoring the natural skin glow in a completely wholesome manner.
The mask is Turmeric yellow gel like in nature.
Apply a thin layer on a clean and dry face, leave it on for 20 min and rinse nicely. Use at-least twice a week for great results.
💓 One can apply directly without using water
💓 Gel is super smooth in texture
💓 Works perfect on the brightening part
💓 Turmeric plays important role for skin glow
💓 Can be directly applied with a face pack brush
💓 Gives you a baby soft skin (Used it twice)
💓 Thumbs up as it’s the best for my tricky skin type (oily +sensitive) and guess what it suits dry skinned people too as my fellow bloggers loved it too
💓 Does not breakout the skin
💓 Can be used for tan removal, but the application quantity should be regular for effective results
💓 Unsure about age spots as I haven’t faced any of those yet
💓 For best results use thrice a week if working on dark spots else twice a week would do great too.
💔 If you guys follow me regularly, might be knowing the fact I’m bit allergic to strong fragrances. The product is undoubtedly fabulous, but has a overpowering fragrance which is a total turn down for me. I feel it’s Vetiver which is so strong. Although it has many benefits but it’s too strong for my sensitive nose. I’m sure this is just my lookout for the particular product, many might love the fragrance. It is not a weird one, a nice blend of fragrance which isn’t for me.
💔 Didn’t wanted to fill pros with cons and mix my words hence mentioning something here. After using the product on face, I could not wait for too long and in less then a minute washed my face but the fragrance wasn’t going off (which is a very good thing for other’s as many packs fragrance disappear after washing it off). Unlike this, I finally applied some essential oil on my face and slept. This was ultimately tried on my tanned feets and guess what it was fabulous on removing tan
💔 Available Online (I feel they might have some stores in Mumbai or their Flea Market in the city)
💔 The product will expire in like 3 months, this was sent for review so that was unacceptable.
💔 Pricey for the quantity given
💔 Jar / Tub are unhygienic. This particular product can be shifted to a small squeeze bottle as it’s gel like in texture.
P. S. I would soon add a review on the hamper I won for Father’s Day contest. Shall share it after dad reviews the products 😍😍 Overall Alanna has some amazing range of skincare and haircare products ☺️☺️ Do check their Website, Facebook and Instagram page for some amazing products.
P. S. They were PR samples but reviews are honest ✌️☺️
