Favorite Lipstick Shades & a MINI Jewellry Haul.

Hello everyone 🙂 Seriously it’s been so hot that I feel like I will melt !! :O I had my 10 holidays which I really wanted to spend with my grandfather but couldn’t go there I miss him and his pakoras and mint sauce 😦 anyways it’s summer and summer means wearing cute , cool lip colors with your favorite blush. I have been wearing a lot of lipstick shades now-a-days but out of those lipsticks I have fallen IN LOVE with two lipstick shades that I will share today. The first one is a pink shade my mom got for me.

And the second is the good old red. Red NEVER gets out of style. It has it’s own place if somebody asks me.

I don’t wear jewellry that much but if I see a really cute thing I buy it and I wear it 😛 I saw some really cute stuff on an online store so I decided to spend some money. The moment I saw this absolutely adorable necklace I knew that I had to have it. image I was actually planning to post this stuff for the last two days but If you read my post before this one you’d know that I am super lazy >.< Anyways that’s all for now. See you all soon. ❤

Review: The Body Shop seaweed clarifying toner ♥

Now-a-days with so many stuff on the counter it’s hard to find a skincare product that actually does the work for you. Otherwise you go around wasting your money on stuff that don’t do your skin any good. I had been looking for an alcohol-free toner for sometime and recently a friend recommended me The body shop’s seaweed clarifying toner. TBS’s seaweed range is especially targeted towards people with combination to oily skin.

2401-1

Okay here’s what the products claims ” Refreshing alcohol-free toner removes impurities and refines pores “. And now for my experience with this toner 🙂

TBS-Seaweed-Ingredients

                                                                  My Experience :   

I would just say that I got lucky and found myself a toner that was actually worth my money. I have used countless toners and I can confidently say that this is one of the BEST toners I have ever used. And can I just say that I LOVE that squeaky clean feeling that I had after taking my makeup off with it or after cleansing. Okay please note that this toner may not be for people with acne and pimple problems because it didn’t help me get rid of my pimples , it just does what it claims to do and that is to refresh your skin and believe me when I say this It really does that job well. I mean after using this toner I actually felt like my skin was breathing. The thing I love THE MOST is it’s heavenly smell and more importantly my skin looks and feels great and fresh. I don’t know if the “refines pores” part is true because my pores are not that big so If you use it please share your experience with me :). And now here are the overall results  ♥

Pros : 

Refreshes skin

Glowing skin after 1 week’s use (in my case)

Excellent makeup remover

No alcohol

Smells great

Cons : 

Not for people with problematic skin

You think it’s expensive

Overall rating : 3.5/5

Price : Rs 1530/-

Recommendation : If you are looking for an alcohol-free toner that’s gentle enough on your skin then this one might be for you.

Review : Golden Pearl Intensive facial scub

Hey everyone ~ 😀 I know I haven’t been able to post anything for a long time now , but now I have got something for you people but before anything else here’s a little background info : I don’t usually buy stuff from local brands because like every other girl i was also of the view that ” Local brands don’t work ”  lol duh this may be true for some brands but for some local brands this isn’t true . I went shopping with a friend of mine  and the sale’s girl there highly recommended me this facial scrub so I bought it , but I had ABSOLUTELY no intentions of using it , but then of course I changed my mind and decided to give it a try …..

1891220_578978622177948_101660255_n

 

   My Experience with this scrub : 

OK  I will be honest , when i started using this scrub i saw no results for three days but on the fourth day i suddenly realized that somehow my skin was looking surprisingly supple and smooth and it was actually glowing !! ❤ And now I have been using it for like two weeks now and all my pimples are gone , I hardly have breakouts plus my skin looks perfect ! even my dark circles are fading yays !!!  This scrub has some pretty good stuff in it like walnut grain which has got some exfoliating properties  , Arbutin extracts which is a skin whitening agent , Shea butter oil With anti-inflammatory properties which make skin smooth and supple and Avocado oil which has some amazing regenerative and moisturizing properties so here’s the overall result ~

Pros :

Light on your pocket 😛

gentle enough for daily use

does what it says

didn’t break me out

Cons : 

couldn’t find any , but as soon as i find one i will make sure to write it here

Rating :  4.5 /5    yep that means i will definitely buy it again !  and i also highly recommend this to you as well if you have oily skin this scrub will work beautifully ~ 🙂

Review : Neutrogena’s oil-free acne wash

Yosh ! finally got the time to be here * happy happy * anyways on with the point now . For some time I had been thinking of writing a review on dermatologists No.1 recommended face wash … yup talking about Neutrogena’s oil-free acne wash . I have read like thousands of reviews on this one before using it and the one thing that was common in nearly all reviews was that this wash causes dryness . I don’t have that bad ugly kinda’ acne but i have pimples here and there so I was like “okay i should give it a try” and this is what happened and what I did  🙂

6801710_320x385

                                                                      My Experience :

Okay so when I started using this wash it did cause dryness so afterwards I used pond’s moisturizer which is pretty heavy but unlike before it didn’t make my skin look oily which I thought was a good thing . But after two three days I noticed that somehow my pimples have gotten worse and I was like Hell no what the hell did I do wrong ?! No I didn’t use it for more than twice a day , so I was pretty confused that why it is not working ? Then I came across something super !  I dropped my moisturizer and toner and used Rose water as both and voila ! MAGIC HAPPENED !! slowly my pimples started to disappear which was a pleasant surprise for me 🙂  and I also use lemon juice every night before going to bed and this added a little more glow to my skin . As I always have a hard time putting on makeup every time I have to go somewhere which I think is troublesome ,so I always try to make my skin look naturally clear so I don’t have to wear too much makeup on .

Pros :  Yup overall a really good cleanser I will definitely buy it again !

Cons : Is a little drying though but you can use your favorite moisturizer afterwards or can use rose water .

Rating it 4.5/5  🙂
