Skin Care Awesomeness: Burst of Happyness
I have tried some of the Burst of Happyness Goodies in the past but today I have some new awesomeness from the brand. Burst of Happyness has come up with some new and exciting products, one is their Burst of Happyness Clay-O-Patra face mask and other one is their Burst of Happyness Coffee Body Butter. Let’s see if these products do any justice to their claims.
Packaging: Burst of Happyness have revamped their packaging and now they comes in silver metallic containers with a screw lid and don’t ask me how much I love these because somehow they give me those nostalgic vibes.. old times metal cans :D. The soaps comes packed in fabric pouches which again looks very pretty.
It’s just that with greasy hand it could be difficult to lock/unlock lids especially of butters but otherwise its awesome.
Burst of Happyness Coffee Body Butter
Product Claims: With regular massage, coffee helps stimulate blood flow and diminishes stretch marks and cellulite. Shea butter is rich in Vitamin E and acts as a natural antioxidant. Vitamin E oil moisturizes skin and helps reduce scarring. Cocoa butter has moisturizing, regenerating, and softening properties, and also helps create a protective barrier on the skin. Almond oil is a light oil that helps ease skin irritation and dryness.

- For Dogs: Treat your pooch to a massage before a bath and they will love it!
Direction for Use: Lather on after your bath or before going to bed and let it work its magic! If you have very dry skin, you can also use the butter as a face cream.

My experience with Burst of Happyness Coffee Body Butter:
It’s all about drenching in any moisturizers during winters, all thanks to my super dry skin. I won’t mind taking bath in a tub full of body lotion or butters as that will ease up my task to a certain extent. I love body butters over lotions because not only they are more moisturizing in most of the cases; I feel they do smell better than lotions.
Burst of Happyness Coffee Body Butter is a mix of the most sumptuous body butters like shea butter, cocoa butter and wonderful essential oils like geranium, grapefruit, rosemary and cedarwood. Out of all the body butters I have tried including handmade Body butters and the much loved The Body Shop Body Butter this Body butter has the most amazing ingredient list. I also love that it melts so quickly when picked with fingers because usually handmade body butters are a pain to use when frozen. It feels light on skin and gets absorbed into the skin without feeling sticky or greasy like the regular oils. It does leave a slight oily film on skin but I don’t mind that because I like it that way.
My favorite thing about this body butter is it fragrance, it smells of a lot like cedarwood and rosemary with a hint of coffee, something that I have never experienced before. Initially it smells a little strong but within minutes of application it fades to a more likeable woody scent.
Owing to its all natural ingredient list I like to pamper my baby with this body butter too especially on his hands and cheeks where he is most dry. I absolutely love this body butter, it is a keeper for me in winters.
Burst of Happyness Clay-O-Patra Face Mask
Product Claims: A delicate but highly potent mask with a blend of six clays to detoxify your skin and scalp.
This clay mask is extremely effective in absorbing excess sebum, removing chemical build-up and refining pores. Along with activated charcoal, which draws out dirt, oil, and toxins (and also helps eliminate acne!), this mask has six clays with great absorbing qualities:
- Kaolin clay gently draws impurities from the skin without removing its natural oils. It simultaneously exfoliates, cleanses, and stimulates circulation.
- Rhassoul Clay is mined in the fertile Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This absorbent, skin-loving clay reduces dryness and flakiness, and also improves skin clarity and elasticity.
- French red clay helps tone skin and deep-cleanse pores, while French green clay helps remove impurities and reduce inflammation.
- Fuller’s Earth is used extensively in India for its antiseptic and absorbing properties.
- Bentonite Clay is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
- Use as a body mask.
- Use for spot treatment.
- Use as a dry shampoo.
- Use as dusting powder for feet.
Direction for Use: Mix the desired amount with warm water/fresh aloe gel and apply. Leave on for 15-30 minutes and rinse off with plain water. If using on scalp and hair, do not shampoo after. Please note that the product might stain clothes.
Ingredients: Rhassoul Clay, Kaolin Clay, French Green Clay, French Red Clay, Fuller’s Earth, Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal
Price: Rs.495 for 120gms
Shelf Life: 2 months from mfg.
My experience with Burst of Happyness Clay-O-Patra Face Mask:
I love the name of this face mask “Clay-O-Patra”, how innovative.. :D. As you can make out from the name it is a clay face mask which comes in a powder form and needs to be mixed with water or milk for application. I have tried a bunch of clay face masks but all of them were in the paste form and pretty pricey for the quantity.
One look at the ingredients list and I fell in love with it. It is such a clay heavy mask and I can only see an extensive amount of clays that will purify skin and that’s it. No fillers or chemicals whatsoever..
I have used it with water and it does take some time to absorb water and transform to a paste form. Actually I like my face masks to be a little thin so I add some more water to the paste. I apply a thin layer of it all over my face and then let it dry for 20-25 minutes and finally wash off with plain water. It washes off with a little effort as clay has a tendency to stick to the skin.
Results: It is a dark gray colored mask which can make you look scary but you will love it for what it does to the skin. I have used it all alone and after the face scrub and in both the cases there was no burning or tingling sensation so I can say that it is safe for sensitive skin as well. Also, I can feel the dirt and oil being pulled off from skin as face feels so clean after wash. I have a dry skin and I don’t find it making it dry or stretchy at all. I loved my skin so much because it felt so smooth, tightened and clean with just this mask. I can see myself skipping scrubbing in winters as this Clay mask will take care of blackheads and all… its awesome!
Recommendation: Burst of Happyness products are handmade with love and are filled with the goodness of natural exotic ingredients. I have tried a few of other handmade products like soaps, shower gels but none of them comes close to these. This
Burst of Happyness Coffee Body Butter is a sumptuous mix of natural butters and essential oils which will nourish your skin in the best way and Burst of Happyness Clay-O-Patra Face mask is an affordable face mask which will help you with skin issues like oiliness, blackheads in the most natural way. Both of these are a must have and you got to try these but if you want to pick just one go with the Clay mask and I am sure you won’t go back to any. Highly Recommended!
