If you have been with me on my blogging journey you know how serious I am with Sunscreen. I have mentioned in multiple posts in the past that sunscreen is perhaps the only skincare product that every person should be using from a health standpoint. But very few people do and one of the reasons for that is they are unable to find a product that they like. I can’t blame them because most sunscreens are thick and goopy and makes one sweat, really nobody wants that! This weightless Japanese Sunscreen promises to do better, moreover the internet beauty community is obsessed with it. I wanted to find out why so I made a friend bring me this right from the source – a drugstore in Japan!
I tried the shower gel from The Body Shop’s British Rose Range in 2016 when they recently launched that range in India, and since have been in love with that fragrance. I loved it so much I went on to buy their Body Mist from the same range (twice) and couldn’t stop raving about it. Looking at me gushing about it my BFF gifted me this Body Yogurt thinking I will love it for sure! Read ahead to find out if I did…
If you are into Korean anything you must already know that BT21 are eight adorable characters created by Line Friends based on the members of popular Korean boy band. The BT21 characters are Tata from Planet BT, who crashes on Earth with Van, and meets Koya, RJ, Shooky, Mang, Chimmy and Cooky. BT21 has already collaborated with brands like Uniqlo and now with Innisfree. My best friend who is a resident of Singapore gifted me this and my can has Cookie – the pink rabbit with a attitude, on it 🙂
I have been trying various Innisfree products since they first launched in India. Their offerings have one thing in common great packaging and a beautiful scent. In terms of efficacy they haven’t impressed me yet! But I am hopeful about their new launches. Here I am talking about three products; Toner, Serum & Sleeping Pack from the Whitening Pore Range. Bear with me because I am squeezing in three reviews in one post so its bound to be long-ish.
I am a huge fan of Bioderma, a French Pharmacy Brand so just that fact might have swayed me a little, because the French take their Beauty seriously! One of the first posts I wrote on this blog, two years ago was a review for the Sensibio H2O and in the years that have passed have seen me try various offerings from Bioderma. So after finishing my previous face-wash I decided to take Sebium Gel for a ride.
The Sunday Riley C.E.O. Brightening Serum is an award winning product which contains one of the trending new skincare ingredients, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate which is a stable, gentle, and lipid-soluble form of Vitamin C. All this goodness at a high concentration of 15% which essentially means big impact and quick action. Of course like most Sunday Riley offerings this comes with an equally big price tag. Lets find out how it fares on my skin.
I admit Tidal has its fair share of hype surrounding it and the steep price is also something that needs to be thought about. I won this product in a giveaway and to be absolutely honest if I were to buy this I would have expected the moon and stars at that price point. Getting it not as a part of PR and without spending the money has perhaps helped me look at it it from a new and more objective standpoint.
I go really slow with my Shower Gels, I don’t use much at one-go so a standard size bottle lasts me for many months but on the contrary husband dearest goes through them at top speed and I am talking about random super-market stuff which is probably full of harsh ingredients like Sulphates and Triclosan. To help the situation I thought I should explore relatively safer options. So during the Kronokare sale I had to get one for him & one for myself. I chose 500 ml bottles of All is Well and Revive & Thrive but ended up getting sent 10 bottles of 100 ml each! But this way I got to try both.
I am always on a look out for a good moisturizer for the face. We all know that is no easy feat so I was compelled to try this Moist-Urge Moisturizing Face Cream (That name LOL) especially since the tube size of 15 gram didn’t seem like too much commitment. 😀
I am not a big supporter of mechanical exfoliation for many reasons. Typically, this form of exfoliation can cause a lot of inflammation within the skin, and micro tears on the epidermis. Often the abrasive beads used by brands are sharp & not eco-friendly. Post making a shift to using products like this for chemical exfoliation I haven’t used a physical scrub since ages but thanks to the sale prices I mentioned in my previous blog post I thought I should give this Polish the Blemish- Face Scrub a shot; not so much for my face but also for my hands & elbow.
