Am back with another review of a new brand Tvakh. I can’t believe that already two months are over in the new year. Time flies so fast ????. I haven’t taken any resolutions this new year. Lately, I have been under a lot of stress due to job change and my father’s health. Am now just taking one day at a time. No future plans or anything for now. What are your new year plans or goals? Would love to know your goals and milestones ????
Coming back to the post, today I will be reviewing a much needed product for winter – a body butter. I recently won this in a contest – Tvakh Pomelo and Kokum Velvet Touch Body Butter. Let’s move on to the review.
Tvakh’s Pomelo and Kokum Body Butter is a silky emulsion that is made with 100% natural fruit butters which create a moisture barrier that ensures comfortable, soft skin and long-lasting hydration. Indulgent formula with Pomelo fruit extracts, Indian Kokum Butter and coconut oil nourish and rejuvenate for a velvet like skin that fights the wintery dryness.
Aqua, shea butter, kokum seed butter, sunflower seed oil, cetostearyl alcohol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, glyceryl monostearate, glycerin, beeswax, glyceryl stearate citrate, tocopherol acetate, aloe leaf juice, xanthan gum, pomelo extract, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA, parfum.
Rs.350 for 200g.
The body butter comes in a simple, plain tub packaging. There are no mention of ingredients list or product claims on the packaging. However, when I contacted the team, they promptly replied with the ingredients list. The product is free from parabens, sulphates, GMO, phthalates and petroleum oils.
After reading the label of the product, I started googling for Pomelo as I have never come across it before. It’s a citrus fruit very similar to grapefruit. Like all citrus fruits, it is rich in vitamin C and also beta-carotene.
Tvakh Pomelo and Kokum Velvet Touch Body Butter is pure white in color and has a pleasant, lightly sweet, fruity fragrance. The fragrance is so mild, so even if you are not a fruity fragrance lover, it won’t bother you. It’s just a soothing and refreshing mild sweet smell.
Tvakh Pomelo and Kokum Velvet Touch Body Butter has a light, whipped, fluffy consistency. After using many body butters from TBS, The Nature’s Co, etc, which are generally thick, I find this consistency very unique. It is like low fat fresh cream that you get in shops. I won’t say it resembles a body lotion as this has a more whipped fluffy texture.
Tvakh Pomelo and Kokum Velvet Touch Body Butter is not just moisturizing but also provides hydration to the skin. I have already talked in my previous post about how moisturization and hydration are two different things. The former refers to oil balance and the latter refers to water balance. If you find your skin is dark and dull even after using body butter, it’s probably due to lack of hydration. Body butters are made mainly from butters and oils and only good for moisturizing. But Tvakh Pomelo and Kokum Velvet Touch Body Butter provides both due to addition of fruit extracts.
Once I apply it, my dry skin drinks it all up. Since it’s light, it gets absorbed easily making skin smooth and soft. True to its name, the texture of the cream is velvet soft and also makes your skin velvet soft and happy ????
I usually like to apply this during day as it’s light and non-greasy. For nights, I feel the moisturization is not enough and I need a more nourishing body butter. If you have very dry skin, you can mix this with a few drops of any oil and use it.
Apart from containing Kokum butter which is great for nourishing skin, it also has 100% natural pomelo fruit extracts which makes it a fruit butter.
When I first heard the name Tvakh, I wasn’t much sure about the brand and their products. But after using this body butter, I find its of high quality and can feel the product is made of natural ingredients instead of just fillers like beeswax, silicones, petroleum oils etc. It does contain beeswax, but in a very less quantity as its mentioned towards the end in the ingredients list and not simply a filler like in drugstore brands. Am excited to try out the other products from the brand.
The only one thing that bothered me slightly was that the pomelo extract was only mentioned towards the end of the ingredients list, so the quantity of it in the product could be less.
Does it satisfy all it’s claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims.
What I like
* Light, whipped, fluffy, velvety consistency.
* Pleasant, sweet fragrance of pomelo.
* Non greasy and non sticky.
* Good for day time usage.
* For night time, can be mixed with any oils and used.
* Contains Kokum butter and pomelo fruit extracts.
* Provides both moisturization and hydration.
* Makes skin soft and velvet smooth.
* Contains high percentage of natural ingredients and very less fillers.

Suggestions for improvements:
* Can improve percentage of pomelo extract (I don’t know if its possible)
* Looking forward to other variants of body butters for dry skin.
Would I recommend?
Yes, for all skin types except very dry skin.
Would I repurchase?
Not right now as I have many body lotions and butters to finish. But in the near future maybe.
Value for money?
Yes, its good value for money.
