Vanilla Creme Brulee Lip Butter by Skincafe: Review

Image
Hey guys..........m back with another post wherein i review this lip butter by Skincafe. I have been testing this lip butter for a month now , so i thought of putting down my thoughts about this lip butter. Coming to the basic details first, it comes in a small glass jar which is quite chic and elegant as most of the lip balms i have used have basic plastic packaging. The lip butter jar comes in a cute cardboard box and this makes it ideal for gifting purposes and looks so pretty sitting in your vanity. A unique thing about the lip balms and lip butters made by Skincafe is that they do not contain chemical preservatives which is a big yayyy and hence, are to be used within 3 months from the date of handcrafting. According to a recent report i was reading, more than 60% of what we apply on our lips is absorbed by our skin. So these products by Skincafe which use natural, preservative free ingredients are safe to apply on our lips which is a big plus point!!! The lip butter costs Rs 9…

Elle 18 colour boost lipstick in the shade Nude Soft review

Image
Hey guys.... M back with a review of one of my favourite shades from the Elle 18 colour boost lip shade range. Coming to the packaging first, it comes in a very cute packaging but at the same time it is sturdy and easy to travel with. Shade: 11 -nude soft Price : Rs 150 for 4.3ml As you can see, this range of lipsticks have a creamy centre and they claim that it is enriched with cocoa butter. The lipstick does feel very creamy and soft on the lips and is a dream to apply. It almost feels like you are applying a lip butter onto your lips. It is a very pretty neutral shade perfect for  everyday wear to college or work and will suit fair to medium skin tones. The colour is highly pigmented which is great!!! It stays well for around 2.5 to 3 hours which is great for the price it comes for. It did not stain my lips. I love the fact that it has a creamy texture without being too glossy on lips. So it gives a little sheen without going overboard which makes it perfect for everyday wear. If you guys…

Iha dermasoft extra gentle soap review

Image
Hey guys...m back with another post wherein i review the Iha dermasoft soap which is specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin. I finished this soap just yesterday and so i decided to pen down my thoughts about it. Coming to the packaging first, it comes in a sturdy box and the soap is packed in a plastic sheet. The soap costs Rs 140 for 125g of the product. I must tell you that the soap last really really long and you get a really big soap bar for the price you pay. As you can see below , the soap has a pretty pink shade and the first thing that caught my attention when i started using the soap was its awesome fragrance. The soap has such a lovely rose and floral fragrance and whenever i use it, i love the way my skin smells. As you can see below, the soap makes a number of claims. I tested the soap on a number of these claims. First of all , the soap actually is a very mild soap. I have a very unique skin type which is both dry and sensitive , so i am very choosy in terms of …

Nowadays finding a pure rose water natural toner can be a task and i have myself used many toners which sell you truckloads of chemicals in the name…

Soultree indian rose with cooling vetiver shower gel review

Image
Hey guys.....m back with a review of a shower gel i am currently loving a lot these days. Coming to the details first, it costs Rs 250 for 200ml. Soultree is a brand which produces BDIH certified natural products and they do not contain harmful ingredients like parabens or sls, which is great as i personally do not prefer such harmful things in my skincare products. You can have a look at the detailed ingredients below. It consists of certain great ingredients for the skin like aloe vera juice, rose water and vetiver. Rose water is great for our skin due to its anti- inflammatory and toning properties. Vetiver, which is commonly called as khus-khus is another great thing for our skin as it has a cooling effect on our mind and body.
coming to my experience with the product, i am really liking it and it refreshes me whenever i use it. It does not have a very strong overpowering fragrance to it. The freshness feeling stays for long and your body feels relaxed and cool after using it. …

Street wear color rich megashine lip gloss in shade " Earthy Touch " review

Image
Hey guys..... M back with a review of a  lip gloss shade from Street Wear. Price: Rs 170 for 7ml Shade: 8- Earthy touch This shade is one of my favourite neutral shade in lip glosses. It is a very pretty and affordable lip gloss and can be worn during the day time as well as goes very well with smoky eyes.  It stays on for around 3-4 hours and is not very sticky. It comes in a cute packaging which is at the same time travel friendly. It is a perfect neutral shade for all skin tones and will complement all attires well.  Overall , i love the shade and its quality for the price it comes. Though you need to touch it up if you are planning to use it for more than around 3 hours. For this price, i believe this shade is a steal.  Guys, if you have used this product, do comment below how this went for you:) See you guys next time with another interesting post:)




Banjara's oil clear exfoliating face wash with Multani and Orange review

Image
Hey guys..m back with a review of a face wash which i finished just yesterday. So i thought of sharing my views on the product. Coming to the details first, Price: Rs 100 for 100ml Suitable for all skin types Ingredients: Multani mitti, orange peel powder Coming to my experience with this product, i am honestly quite happy with it. First of all i quite like the unique combination of multani mitti and orange extracts. The face wash has a very citrusy orange smell which i personally like as it freshens me up. The face wash is soap free and hence is quite mild on my skin. It also has another unique thing: it not only cleanses my face but also exfoliates my skin with the help of fine orange peel particles as you can see below. It does act effectively on oily portions of my skin  but at the same time it did not overdry my skin. Overall, i would say i had a good experience using the product and i would definitely repurchase it because of its refreshing smell and i believe it is apt for the…

Image
Hey guys..m back with a review of this gorgeous shade from Maybelline's newly launched gel nail enamel collection. Coming to the details first,  Shade: 872- Red Hot Getaway Price: Rs 325 for 10ml Coming to the shade, i am totally loving this coral pink shade and it is perfect for the spring summer time. Now coming to the texture, i like the overall texture and finish this imparts to my nails. As against many other nail paints i have used, it does not get dull after 2-3 days like normal nail colours do. I am quite happy with its gel finish. Though you can get better gel finish nail paints in the market, but they cost way too much than it costs. Now coming to its claim of staying on nails for 7 days, Guys it has passed the test with flying colours:) The image below is of the 7th day nails and as you can see, the nail paint is still on except the lower part of the nails , which is obvious because they are the newly grown nails:) The product claims that it will remain for 7 days wit…

Hey guys..m back with a review of a lip crayon which i am using a lot these days. It is the one by Sugar and is in the shade 04 Holly Golightly. Coming to the details first,It costs Rs 799 and comes with a free sharpner. You can have a look at the ingredients below Coming to the shade, it is a very pretty neutral shade with slight pink tones to it. It is an everyday shade and would surely suit all skin tones. It is a matte lip crayon and unlike other matte lipsticks, it is very creamy in texture and does not dry out my lips. It has very good pigmentation and just one or two swipes give you the desired colour. It lasts pretty long on my lips. I have used it for a maximum of 4 hours and i believe it can last even more. Overall, i believe it is a pretty good shade to invest in. I use it on a daily basis as it makes my day look very subtle and i use it to glam up my evening smoky eyes look. If you are into neutral shades, and are looking at a matte one, do give it a shot. If you have al…
