I was going crazy about checking out Tathaastu skincare products from past few months. But since they have only one store at DLF Vasant Kunj, New Delhi so I have not been able to get hold of their products.
Finally I went there to check out some of their stuff. They are an aromatherapy brand and have everything natural and herbal. Infact the face packs that they sell are prepared freshly there and then by their professional aromatherapists. They have a huge collection of bath, body and wellness products. I spent at least half an hour at their store checking out the products but the only thing that was putting me off again and again were the smells. The fragrances of the products were was obnoxious but then I was ready to ignore the smell considering all the goodness of natural ingredients. One lip balm I remember had a rose fragrance and when I smelled it had a smell of rotten roses. :sick: Also their products don’t have any preservatives so they expire within 8-10 months of their manufacturing.
Finally I decided to give their night cream a try and apart from that I was looking for an oil diffuser for quite some time, I picked one from their range. The night cream is a blend of avacado, beeswax, almonds and essential oils. Price Rs 545.
I met a friend in evening and I was showing her my stuff. As soon as she smelled the cream she said, “it smells like a dead rat.” I thought she was just having fun and I can obviously tolerate some bad smell for my skin.
I applied it at night and my hubby had no clue that I had used anything on my face. Within 5 minutes he started saying that the room is smelling of a dead fish. He started looking under the furniture to check if there is any dead rat or something in the room. I was so horrified that I did not speak a word until a few minutes and then I confessed that it’s the cream that is smelling. 🙁
I had to finally wash my face because the smell was sickening me as well. Even after that I had to spray perfume on myself and in the room. 🙁
Well!! this didn’t end here. I was just analyzing the cream in the morning and I saw that there is a hair at the bottom of the jar. Sick!! :sick:
Terrible!! Waste of money, and energy. Infact I am not picking anything from them ever. 🙁
I am glad I did not buy any of their stuff.:pumpkin: I am happy with the oil diffuser though.
