Be Talk: Shopping experience from 48craft.com

I really like the way online stores are catering to all sorts of needs of people nowadays. So far, the sites hoarding makeup and skincare products were the most popular ones to us ladies. But of late I came across the website www.48craft.com and was pleasantly surprised with its plethora of interesting  and beautiful articles-which comprise entirely of Indian traditional arts and crafts. I am really amazed to see the wide variety of products in a number of categories and at very reasonable pricing in this website and so sharing it with you. 

Here is a sneak peak at the website: www.48craft.com and some of the nice products listed therein. 


Combo Deals


Here is what I bought from this website:

A set of 5 pillow covers
A cane handbag

Well these were actually my mom's recommendations-and she is really happy with the products that we received. Here's discussing some of the features of this online shopping website.

1) The products are all based on Indian handicrafts of various states. The current collection has some very attractive products

2)There are a wide number of categories to choose from. Do check out the bags section-its just awesome!!! You would surely be tempted to pick one!

3) The description provided is very helpful to choose the products. I received the  product (bag)  in exactly the given dimensions and as per the descriptions given in the website.

4)  Here are some current discount offers from this website which you would get once you sign up.

5) The products I received are of great quality. I think they are totally worth the price.

6) The courier (Fed Ex) service is very prompt and  reached our place in two days and they also called before the delivery. The products were securely delivered in a card board box.

Over all I am very happy after shopping from this website-I got  nice products at reasonable prices and with most prompt delivery service. I would wish 48craft to add more traditional Indian products-like sarees, madhubani and rajasthani paintings, dokra artifacts and loadsa other stuff! I think this is also  a great endeavor to promote Indian art and should reach out to international buyers as well!!!

I received a voucher from this website for shopping-however-my review is unbiased and unaffected by that

Be Talk: The Nature's Co Guava Body Lotion

Brand: The Nature's Co

Line: Foressence

Type: Body Lotion

Quantity: 250 ml

Price: 495 INR

I recently came across the Nature's Co products and was instantly tempted to try them. I checked out their website (check it here) and found it to be a hugely informative and detailed one. I was also amazed to read about their huge range of products in various categories. 

The products are classified into five ranges named as:
Atmospure, Starrize. Foressence, Earthborne, Aquaspark

Each category further has products in each domain of Face, Body, Bath, Hair and Wellness

About the Brand:

At the Nature’s Co, nature is a way of life. Here, a strict adherence to the ‘all natural’ way persists. The products contain the natural ingredients that are against animal cruelty, vegan and of best quality from across the globe. 

Age old, traditional natural remedies have been meticulously sourced and recreated in convenient, modern forms that are practical, hassle free and innovative. 

To conserve natural resources, product development & designing teams have taken extra care to ensure that the packaging uses only materials such as Glass, PP, PETG and acrylic which are user friendly, recyclable or biodegradable and hence totally environment friendly.

All the products of The Nature’s Co are made in the vicinity of nature. The Dehradun factory is located in the picturesque Doon Valley which is a quiet town in the foothills of the Shivalik ranges. The factory is our latest addition to the ever growing needs of the company wherein 30,000 sq.ft. is allocated to the The Nature’s Co. This state-of-the-art manufacturing plant is equipped with latest machinery and equipments. All products are manufactured here using Natural Hill Spring Water.
We use natural preservatives in place of synthetics such as parabens. Natural preservatives are delicate and more susceptible to changes during activities like shipping. However, the science behind our products ensure that they have a minimum shelf life of 18 months and reach the consumers in the best condition.
All our products also go through strict quality controls, micro-testing and clinical trials on humans only.

The Nature’s Co. products are PETA certified which means that the company is completely vegan friendly and also practices non-cruelty to animals. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the largest animal rights group in the world, is based in the United States with two million members and supporters

Me Talk:

The Guava body lotion is from the range Foressence. It's description is provided in the website where the price and quantity are also mentioned. The details of this product from the Nature's Co website is given below.

The lotion is a creamy-pink in color and the texture is runny and light. It has a very faint fragrance that is almost indiscernible unless smelt strongly. Owing to its light texture, it gets easily absorbed in the skin and doesn't leave behind any oily residue. 

I felt the moisturization to be quite good for dry winter days-and I guess it would also be nice to use in summer since it is quick absorbing and non-oily or non-slimy (those types take forever to get absorbed into the skin). 

Although I like fragrant lotions-I have no objections with this one-and for ladies who prefer non-fragrant moisturisers- this might be an ideal choice. Overall I find this lotion to be a really nice product and the 250 ml of quantity is enough to last me for this summer at least. I am tempted to try their mixed berry body lotion next.


1) Very elaborately composed website that helps to chose and shop for products from there itself.

2) The products are natural to the core and anyone who is a fan of natural remedies must surely check these out.

3) Very wide range of products-so much that it takes time to explore the website itself.

4) Various gifts accessories and kits are available-all based on natural products. Latest launches are essential oils and oil burners. Its like a one stop shop for natural beauty products.

5) As for the Guava body lotion-
a) A nice and mild moisturizer for the hands and neck. 

b) Gets absorbed easily, no oily feeling afterwards

c) Fragrance is very mild barely-there

d) Moisturization stays upto 3-4 hours in very dry winter days as I found. Skin remains soft and supple till then

e) No side effects observed. 

f) Not tested on animals

Down Side: Nothing except that I wish a smaller sized container was available-so that it could be carried around.

Recommendations: 90%
Product Sent by Company for Review. However my opinions are unbiased and unaffected by that.
