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.
MAC’s Extra Dimension Skin finishes are some of the best highlighters around. Shaft of Gold was a part of MAC’s Magic of the Night 2015 holiday collection. I am not sure if its still available but if you like the colour a good dupe is Bae Area by Colourpop. MAC describes it as a “deep bronze.” It’s a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a gold shimmer finish. Looks great on deeper Indian Skin Tones. It also makes for a nice day time eye-shadow.
