It is only very recently, I started counting facial cleansers as skincare products. Call it a boom in skincare consumerism or power of marketing gimmicks, cleansers have now become the starting point from where skincare really starts. It seems, almost every week, there is a new kind and category of cleanser introduced by plethora of brands.
I remember the very first cleanser that earned respect from me was from Cetaphil. I loved it, and could see what difference it made to my acne-prone skin. But I always thought it is a medicinal kind of product, no glamour attached to it whatsoever. Continue reading
Hey all! If you have been reading my blogposts, you know how strongly I feel about investing in good face serums. They really go beyond any creams , oils, and moisturizers.
Today I am sharing with you my story and experience with a L’occitane product that is called an essence but has serum-like consistency. It’s from their Immortelle range -the brightening essence.
I am so excited to write this post on two awards that I have been nominated for , by two most amazing bloggers Himanshi and Laura.
Everytime I receive these heartwarming nominations, I get super excited. This time these awards are very special because they are giving me a chance to open up with you all for the first time. Usually, I keep my posts specific to the reviews etc but it’s very rare for me to share a very personal side of me. So let’s get started:
The first award is ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD and I am nominated by Himanshi. It is only a few months ago I came across her amazing blog. She has impressed me big time. I find her a very perceptive and intelligent person, who knows her way with words. She is an amazing writer, I love reading poems from her. I would love for anyone and everyone reading this blogpost to go visit her blog, you will be as impressed as I am with her blog.
- Thank the one who nominated you.
- Post about the award.
- Share 7-15 facts about yourself.
- Nominate others and let them know.
OK so now that I have ticked on the first two rules, its time to fill you in with a few facts about me. Continue reading
Yay!!! as promised I am back with a review on another sleeping mask: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque.
I have used Kiehl’s products before. Some have worked wonders , some have been disappointing (including the Ultra Facial moisturizing cream). So when I purchased this mask, I had neutral expectation as in I hoped that it is HYDRATING as the name suggests but I did not expect it to be a mask that will do significantly more than that.
This is first in the series, where I try out samples and post about them on “Sample Sunday“. I have accumulated quite some samples from last few purchases and so every sunday I will post about my first experience with those samples. It will not be a detailed review but more like ‘first impressions’ review.
However, the one sample that I am talking about today is almost the same quantity as the regular size. The SA at my local LUSH store had run out of the sample container, so she gave it to me in a big jar and I somehow ended up getting a huge amount of sample for the mask. YAY!!
How pretty is that bright turquoise blue, I haven’t seen such gorgeous looking mask ever and ironically the mask is called Don’t look at me 🙂 Continue reading
We grew up learning that a good-night-sleep is the key element when it comes to getting that rested look on your face. But who knew up until a few recent years that combined with a sleeping mask, your skin can look absolutely radiant, plump and ravishing. Thanks to the concept of sleeping masks.
Sleeping masks have been one of the essential beauty secrets in K-skincare scene and it is indeed a phenomenon that has taken the entire beauty world by storm. And I couldn’t be happier that it has made its way into my little skincare world too. Can I live without this beauty ritual ever again: NO. Sleeping masks have become cult for a reason, and the concept is only getting better and better over time.
I have been using sleeping or overnight masks since last year only. And since then I have experimented a little with different brands. Today I have picked up the
Shiseido Ibuki Beauty Sleeping Mask
I have used a couple of products from Shiseido’s Ibuki range and I have loved everything that I have used from that range. Yup! it is that good. So I had some great expectations from this sleeping mask …read on if you want to know my verdict on this one. Continue reading
Do you know about this amazing skincare ingredient called Ghassoul/ Rassoul clay?
Last month when I was looking for some organic, cruelty free skincare products, I came across this amazing “The Unique Face & Décolleté Ghassoul Mask”. I was intrigued by what I read at the back of the pack. It was a gorgeous green sachet, with gorgeous font. I know I am such a big sucker for good pacakging 🙂
