Nourish Mantra – a relatively new Indian brand that also retails in the USA (which means their formulations abide by stricter rules as compared to ones that retail in India only). The brand believes in “Slow Beauty” and claims to be on a mission to modernize traditional Indian beauty philosophies making them relevant. The products are claimed to be 100% vegan, cruelty-free and created with ethically sourced ingredients which IMO is wonderful.
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.
I was in the market for a new facial cleanser as the last one I was using was on its last breath so I was beyond thrilled to get my hands on this Foaming Cleanser by Loveisderma. You guys know how invested I am in skincare and something that I especially appreciate is finding new brands that make hi-tech skincare products. Loveisderma- A Taiwan based brand engaged in aesthetic medicine, skin care products and pharmaceutical care.
I am a big fan of L.A. Girl’s BB Cream. So far I have re-purchased it thrice and the review post of the BB cream has been read over 6000+ times since I published it in September 2016; so clearly a lot of you are interested in the brand as well. I recently had the opportunity to try out the pressed powder from L.A. Girl in shade GPP608- Soft Honey. With the benchmark the brand had set with the BB cream my expectations for this powder were very high.
I have been wanting to try a transparent mascara since ages; in hopes for getting those naturally fluttery lashes that look fab without looking made up with tonne of black mascara. Well a girl can hope, right? So when I saw this MegaClear Transparent Mascara by Wet n Wild I had to check it out!
Flaky & Chapped lips are the bane of my existence! Most folks have a seasonal problem of dry lips, and how envy them. I am not sure what I am doing wrong in life to have cracked lips through out the year. To improve upon this miserable situation I often try various Lip Products with renewed hope with each new purchase. I have been leaning towards natural products so this Choco Mint Lip Scrub by Juicy Chemistry caught my fancy.
I recently ran out of my British Rose Shower Gel which I loved for its beautiful fragrance. Shower gels are something I use everyday, sometimes twice a day, on account of such frequent usage I was looking for a natural & organic option. Ms. Super Consumer had often raved about the brand so I decided to sample Soul Tree and was leaning towards the Rose fragrance yet again!
Since forever I have been trying to find a lip balm that works for me. I am one those miserable people who have chapped lips all year round and have tried lip balms from various brands and many-many home remedies. So far the only product that has some effect is an over-night slathering of the transparent Baby Lips from Maybelline. Now that I am consciously trying to transition towards natural and organic products, this time I decided to give Organic Harvest a shot.
