The whole trend these days is about going organic and using all ‘natural’ stuff. While that’s a great way to go, are you sure it’s all organic and actually ‘natural’ as it claims to be?
Say hello to Burst of Happyness that opened my eyes about this ‘natural’ tag and let me experience some real good 100% natural skincare products. They are Vegan, Handmade and 100 cruelty free (so buy guilt free)
I was sent some BOH products to try them out and send back my honest opinion. So, I’ve put together this blog review of the three products I received- Deodorant cream, Clay mask and Facial cleanser. Along with that a complete overview of Burst of Happyness 🙂
Let me start by Introducing BOH–
BOH was started by Shreya Sharan Pawar in 2012, who herself was looking at some natural products and decided to try her hand at soap making (which lucky us) worked out really well. The rest after that is history and BOH now is 40+ skin loving goodies strong.
Philosophy behind BOH-
BOH products are truly natural in the real sense of the word. They contain only cold-pressed oils, raw butters, essential oils, and herbs and clays.
They do not use any synthetic preservatives (yes, you read that right!) or synthetic fragrances, or any pigments or mica to colour their products. All colours are derived from herbs and other natural ingredients. They use a synergistic blend of anti-oxidising oils and anti-bacterial, anti-fungal essential oils which help increase the shelf life of our products.
You can actually go through the list of all the ingredients used on their website (which gives you all the possible details about products and ingredients) https://burstofhappyness.in/
List of Products available on BOH:
- Body Scrubs
- Facial Cleansers
- Facial Serums
- Lip Balms
- Natural Deodorants
- Shampoo Bars
- And they even have E-Gifting cards.
For being completely vegan and natural products with good packaging BOH is quite reasonably priced with lip balm jars at 150, soap bars starting at 250 and moisturisers going upto Rupees 700.

My experience with the BOH goodness-
FYI my skin over the past few years has become slightly sensitive and tends to break out into a rash or acne if I’m not using my usual products. I would love to mention here that none of the BOH skin care products les to any sort of rash or discomfort to my skin and I was quite happy with the natural glow that my skin got minus any sort of chemicals.
Some people can tend to be allergic to certain natural things also hence the detailed mention of all the ingredients used in all the BOH products will help you avoid any sort of allergic reaction too.
The products sent to me were specifically sent according to my skin type, which btw is a Combination Skin Type that tends to be more oily in the summer and monsoon months.
What A Girl Wants (Facial Cleanser)
What a Girl Wants is a soap-free cleanser for oily or acne-prone skin, made lovingly with Rhassoul Clay and rose petals to gently cleanse skin. It leaves your face so moist and soft that you’ll think twice before putting on a moisturizer!
This cleanser can even be used as a spot treatment or as a face mask (if used with aloe vera gel). I have only used What A Girl Wants as a facial cleanser and quite liked the light scrubbing effect if had along with a fresh feel to it and true to what it claims it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry. The skin feels soft and supple after its use.
Its available on BOH website- HERE for Rupees 450!
Clay-O-Patra (Face Mask)
A delicate but highly potent mask with a blend of six clays to detoxify your skin and scalp.
A clay mask is always a good idea for oily skin. This product can be used in a lot of ways and with water, rose water or aloe vera gel. It does tend to stain so if using as a face mask use it at night (if you aren’t headed out), a slight green layer of mask gets left (which is absolutely ok to stay on the face). The next morning once you wash your face again, you are back to fresh looking skin.
Read about the amazing other ways this clay mask can be used on the BOH website.
Its available on BOH website- HERE for Rupees 550
Lavender & Grapefruit Deodorant Cream
Natural deodorant cream ensures you smell good all day long. Now you can forget about body odour and stay fresh without worrying about your skin with this jar full of cheerful and fresh fragrance!
When using natural products the fragrances can be quite mild. But the skin does feel great and infact I layered it with my perfume and because it had a mild smell it didn’t overpower the perfume and the perfume scent did last quite well 🙂 The little spatula that comes with the jar is helpful as you have to make sure no moisture goes into this product.
Its available on BOH website-HERE for Rupees 550
What I loved most about the Burst of Happyness goodies?
Apart from the obvious of BOH being completely free of any chemicals what I loved about BOH is:
- The online shopping experience is quite organised and you can find the right kind of products as per your skin type without any kind of assistance too.
- The deodorant cream is something very different and unheard of and definitely wins BOH some extra brownie points there.
- You can even have your own customised goodies made. I would love to gift a friend a cute bag of BOH goodies especially according to her skin type (and I know she will definitely be floored with the personalised touch)
They even showcased at the Kitsch Mandi in Bangalore so look out for them at the next flea in your city! You never know 😉
