First-aid Beauty (FAB) Facial Radiance Overnight Mask: Product review

Hey all,

I am sure you all will agree,  night time skincare routine is so much fun and effective. Good night sleep, itself is a great booster but combined with overnight skincare really helps our skin to rejuvenate and prep for fighting against the environmental factors that constantly work against our skin.

Overnight masks are for sure fun to add in the skincare routine but it is really essential to seal it or any night serum with a good sleeping moisturizer /cream.  Talking about which, do visit my dear blogger friends from Chai and Lipstick as they are reviewing a great overnight cream option on their blog today. I always find their reviews super helpful.

Lush Herbalism Face and Body Cleanser : Product review

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

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque Review

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.

Sample Sunday: Lush Mask “Don’t Look at Me”

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

Oribe Shampoo and Heat Styling Spray: Product Review

Two months ago, I decided to change the color of my hair from (almost) black to light brown. I love the end result but I was absolutely devastated to see my hair especially the ends, go frizzy and rough, all the blame goes to 5 hours of hair bleaching. Yes girls! my  natural color on the hair took that long to bleach. It was indeed a long day in hair salon, sigh !

Just when I was about to leave the hair salon after spending my longest day ever in there, my hairdresser introduced this new luxury brand to me. I had never heard of this brand until that moment and  after spending several hours smelling and tasting bleach and never-ending headwashes, I succumbed to the pressure  and bought the two things he recommended- the Oribe shampoo for brilliance and shine and real blowout heat styling spray. Never in my life I have spent so much on a hair product in one go… Continue reading
