Plum Green Tea Face Care Set

I always wanted to try the Brand Plum and recently, I bought Green Tea Face Care Kit from Plum which is for Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin and believe me, I am so Happy and Satisfied with my decision to invest in this Brand. I am totally in love with this Kit and with this post, I'll be sharing my experience with you all. This is going to be a bit long post (I guess!) because I'll be covering all the products of this Green Tea Range in this post only. Let's get started. 😇

Plum Goodnes
Plum

Plum is a totally Chemical Free Brand dedicated to Skincare. They have dedicated products for all skin types. Their products are Totally Free from Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), DEA, PABA, and Animal Derived Ingredients.

So basically, this is totally a healthy brand with no fake fairness promises. They have lots of range for you to choose from. Such as Choco-Latte, Vanilla, Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and More. I decided to give Green Tea Range a try because it was for Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.

Why I Chose Green Tea Range?
  • Great for oily, acne-prone skin.
  • Rich in polyphenols, their certified organic green tea extracts are brimming with antioxidants that retard the acne formation process and help maintain a clean and refreshed look on our face.
  • Glycolic Acid in these products is a great housekeeper, gently removing dead cells and keeping skin healthy.
  • What's more, they have hand-picked non-comedogenic ingredients, especially for this range.

And yes, this cute pouch-bag also caught my attention. I don't know why but I always get attracted to Product Kits with Bags. 😍 Let's explore what's all in this kit. 


1) Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash

Price: Rs. 345/- for 75ml

Product Description: Mild, gentle cleansing formula with organic green tea extracts, glycolic acid and mild, natural cellulose scrub (not scratchy, artificial plastic). The first step to a clear complexion starts with the right face wash.

How To Use: Take a smaller-than-coin-sized amount in your palm, work up the lather on wet face, rinse and pat dry. Use once or twice daily.

Please Note: If you're not used to exfoliation, your skin may feel stretched after the first few washes. This is quite normal - use a light moisturizer if your skin feels drier than usual. The balance will be restored within a few days.

My Experience 

This comes in a squeezable tube with a flip flop cap. Easy to use and Travel-Friendly. The consistency is like the runny gel with tiny round beads. Those beads actually feel good while washing face. It feels like we are giving a little message to our skin. The fragrance is really so calming and soothing. It actually refreshes me and my skin. Sometimes I just wash my face because of the Fragrance and Rolling Beads. 😄

This Face wash does the job of cleaning very well. This totally takes away the dirt, oil, and bacteria and even negative energy from my face with its rolling beads. 

This didn't give stretchy or dry feeling but people with extremely oily skin who love more of squeaky clean cleansers might feel that this is leaving a bit of soapy layer behind. It is more of a gentle cleanser.

It leaves my skin Fresh, Clean, Detoxed, Soft, Glowing and Smooth. It really cleanses the pores from deep within. I am just using day and night. Not only for Oily Skin, but people with dry skin can also use it. My Mommy has dry skin and she loved it. 

Available at Nykaa and Amazon.



2) Green Tea Clear Face Mask

Price: Rs.475/- for 60gm

Product Description: What fruits are to diets, masks are to skincare. Complete your skin care regimen with this once-a-week natural clay-based formula that exfoliates and brightens up your face. Effective antioxidant action from organic green tea extracts helps combat acne (pimples), too.

How To Use: Gently apply a thin layer over all areas of the face, taking care not to let the product enter your eyes. Wait for about 30 minutes or until the mask dries completely, and wash off with plain water. Do not scrub the face with a towel, gently pat dry and use a gentle moisturizer to seal in the best ingredients. Use once a week. 

Please note: You are likely to experience a slight tingling sensation on your skin for the first few minutes after application - this is entirely normal for bentonite clay masks as they get to work removing the grime and dead cells from your skin.

My Experience

No wonder, this is the most recommended Face Mask for Oily Skin. Clay masks are so good for oily skin and this mask, having Green Tea extracts which are known to be a great source of anti-oxidants, really keeps the oily skin oil-free, clean, detoxed, soft, smooth, free from clogged pores, bright, and everything good. It comes in a round glass jar which is a bit heavy so you have to be very careful with it. There is an inner lid that is placed on top of it which acts as extra protection.

The mask is really soft in consistency and on the skin. It can be easily applied and spread with fingers or brush. I pay more attention to my T-Zone where I have open pores. After applying, it gives a bit of burning sensation which goes away within seconds. It dries slowly but doesn't turn into a rock but still not advisable to move your facial muscles during the face mask on. 

After washing off, I notice a super clean and radiant effect which was because of deep cleansing. It doesn't give me dry or stretchy feeling. This mask totally pulled away from the dirt particles, oil-heads and everything unhealthy from my face like a magnet and left behind and soft and smooth face

I don't know if it is the mask only or the whole kit, but I didn't feel heavy greasy or oily feeling for the whole day. It works so good esp. on the clogged pores. I felt like my skin is breathing. 

The most impressive part, it actually worked on pimples caused by dirt, oil, and bacteria. I am not kidding, I could see this mask paired with toner, drying up my acne and reducing them. 

Really Impressed by this. It is really great for the weekend when you need a super detoxification pampering session for your face. 

Available at Nykaa and Amazon.



3) Green Tea Alcohol-Free Toner

Price: Rs.380/- for 200ml

Product Description: Super-effective astringent toner without the drying effect of alcohol. Astringent Green Tea helps shrink enlarged pores while the glycolic acid helps skin renewal and clarity.

How to Use: After washing face, pour out the small quantity of toner on palm and splash on your face. You could also use a cotton ball to dab or swipe the toner softly all over. Leave on and let your skin soak it up. Let toner air dry, don't rush to wipe it off. Follow it up with a moisturizer suited for oily skin.

My Experience

My search for a perfect toner is now ended. After trying this toner, I feel like I have found the best. It comes in a squeezable bottle with a push and open kind of cap (I don't know how to explain it! 😄) but attention needs to be given while pouring out the toner on the cotton pad because sometimes it just comes with a great flow and not drop by drop. It looks like just water and the fragrance is noticeable much but doesn't bother at all. 

I started by swiping it over my T-Zone where I have an excess of open pores esp. around my nose. It gives a warm burning sensation for the first few minutes which I don't like but acceptable because the results are great. It gives no irritation or rashes

Coming to the results, it helped in treating small clogged pores. I used this whole kit before going to bed and was really shocked by the results the next morning. The open pores around my nose which are so irritating for me was gone with this toner. So yes, it definitely works on open and clogged pores. 

It also cleanses the skin. I was able to see dead skin and oil-heads on the cotton pad which are deeply settled in clogged pores. Within a week of Usage, It has improved my skin. There were less clogged pores and so sign of open pores. Also, it effectively reduced the appearance of the new pimples and worked on acne by drying them.

The product says to let it dry for a few minutes by itself. So I just wait for a minute or two, before proceeding for moisturizer. 

Available at Nykaa and Amazon.



4) Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer

Product Description: Multi-dimensional care that includes: controlled hydration, non-shiny matte finish, acne combat, and a fresh, clear appearance.

My Experience 

Finding a Moisturizer for Oily Skin is not an easy task. Moisturizer is so important for skin, be it any kind of skin. Well Hydrated, Nourished and Moisturized Skin is the Key to Younger and Healthy Skin even in 40s. Oily Skin has its own issues. When I read about this Moisturizer that it is specially designed for Oily Skin, it attracted me a little bit. I have tried a lot of Moisturizers which claims to be oil-free and for oily skin but they all were failed and gave me oily and sweaty face within an hour of application. So I was excited and worried at the same time about this Moisturizer.

It comes in a sleek pump bottle with a protective cap and I am in love with pump packagings. It is in runny and light lotion kind of consistency. And there are not glossy or shiny particles which are visible in most of the oil-free creams so I was sure that it won't add shine to my face. In fact, the moisturizer it self-was giving a matte look. The fragrance is known as such. It is very mild and not at all bothering.

It takes only one pump for the perfect amount of the product. I applied it evenly and massaged well on my face. It gets absorbed within seconds and doesn't give any heavy or greasy feeling. It really didn't give my face a shiny look and also covered a bit of existing shine. I didn't feel that I have applied something. I was exactly looking for something like this. It kept my skin nourished and soft without turning sweaty or oily after-hours application. 

It can be used before applying any makeup product and as a night moisturizer too. Overall, this is a great moisturizer for Oily Skin. 

Available at Nykaa and Amazon.

---Do Read---
Though this kit has been the best ever and the most effective kit I tried, I would also like to bring in notice that majority of the products meant to treat acne, work on the acne caused by dirt, bacteria, and excess oil production. If pimples or acne are caused by diet, hormones, bad quality of water or atmosphere, it is always advised to consult the skin doctor to treat the same. 😇


💁 Overall, The Whole Kit is so apt. for Oily skin because Oily skin attracts dust and bacteria the most which get settled in pores and this kit focuses on deep cleansing, pimples, and pores. Also, takes care of the moisture level while keeping it clean and controlling the sebum production resulting into the problem-free skin. Plus, it is free from chemicals so it is really perfect for sensitive skin. 


Pros
  • Chemical Free
  • Vegan
  • Products Targeted for Oily Skin Issues
  • Deep Pore Cleansing
  • Removes Open and Clogged Pores
  • Keeps Skin Oil-Free
  • Keeps Skin Fresh, Healthy, Soft, and Glowing
  • Controls Shine
  • Doesn't Makes Skin Greasy
  • No Skin Rashes 


Cons
  • No Con



So this was all about the Green Tea Range from Plum. I will definitely try their variants. I hope you have enjoyed reading this. Do Subscribe for more and Have a Good Day! 😇
