My Third Empty Post


Hello Lovely Ladies!



Hope you all are doing great. Today I am here to share my third empty post with you guys. I love to try loads of beauty products to find the best suitable stuffs for my skin and hence most of the time I end up buying new products even before finishing the old ones, I know this is actually not a  good practice but can’t really help it. I guess all my lovely ladies will agree that we all are almost same at this particular point? Well coming back to the topic, this time I have managed to finish some more skincare products and I am really happy for that J

Now let’s see what those products are.

Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask:

This is one of the best face masks I have ever used. I have dry to combination with little troubled skin near nose and chin area, this clay mask can fight against various skin problems like acnes, irritations, breakouts, a multitasking product which can act as a mild exfoliator, making skin super clean and smooth as well as helps to reduce skin rashes and pimples without making my skin dry. I use this mask twice in a week without fail and I am on my second tub right now. J You can find the full review here Click

Just Herbs Petalsoft Antitan Rose Face Pack:

As you all know I have little sensitivity near my nose and chin area and this mask really gives my whole face a tingling sensation during application but it never irritate those areas post application, no itchiness or redness after washing my face so it can be suitable for sensitive skin also. It helps in reducing sun tan to some extent with regular usage as it really helped my tanned forehead to make it brighter looking and it doesn’t cause any breakouts post usage. I have finished one tub but I think I am not going to repurchase this mask as I want a more effective one. You can find the full review here Click


Ethicare Remedies Akmasq Pimple Care Complexion Mask:

After finishing the first tube, one thing I must say about this mask, it’s a Holy Grail face mask for clearing pimples and other mild skin irritations. It works on controlling oiliness with removing excess oil from my T-Zone area and helps to reduce brown spots and uneven skin tone with regular usage. I am definitely going to buy this product again.

Inatur Herbals Olive Body Butter:

It’s a decent body butter with a nice soothing fragrance, light creamy texture which absorbs easily into your skin and melts without leaving any greasiness behind. It makes skin soft and supple, it has the ability to give enough moisturizer to my skin removing the dry patches of skin making it smooth and soft. I quite like this body butter but as I love to keep trying varieties of body butters, I am not going to repurchase this for now. You can find the full review here Click

Avene Thermal Spring Water

This is the second bottle I have finished and it is a must have facial spray for me. Its versatile nature makes it a unique spray. It can heal, soften your skin, help to bring out the natural glow, and can be used as a toner and makeup setting spray. Full review is here Click

Soap & Glory body buff:

This body scrub has a wonderful fragrance which is the best thing about this product. It has a mixed smell of sweet chocolates, little bit of vanilla and of strawberry which lasts very long even 2 or 3 hours after shower. It's scrub particles are good enough to pulls out dead skin making skin surface soft and smooth. I have dry hands and most of the body scrubs make my skin dry and I feel the need of using body moisturizer immediately after shower but this scrub works in a different way. It pulls out dead skin but keeps skin moisturized. Though it is expensive, I am going to buy this for sure again.:-)



So these are the products that I have managed to finish this time. Hope you guys have enjoyed my post. Don’t forget to share your thoughts below.

That's all for today! :-)

Just Herbs Silksplash Neem-Orange Rehydrant Face Wash Review



Hi ladies!

 


Hope you all are doing well. Today I am here to review a face wash from Just herbs, Silkplash Neem-Orange Rehydrant Face Wash. I generally do have dry skin but it tends to get combination in the summers and I always end up catching skin irritations with mild pimples near my sensitive nose and chin area and any chemically loaded skincare product can make this area itchy or red, so I always try to avoid chemicals as much as I can. This face wash is meant for all skin types, I am using this face wash regularly for past few days which is free from paraben and sulfate and thought of sharing my view about this product with you guys.

So let’s get started.



 
So let’s get started.

What the product claims:

An ideal rehydrate foaming Ayurvedic cleanser with the natural goodness of neem, Chandan(sandal wood) and honey which gently removes the last traces of dust, grime and make-up residue, yet retaining the inherent moisture of the skin. While Sandal Wood is moisturising and anti-inflammatory, Calendula acts as natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent with sun radiation protective properties. Aloe Vera, Honey and Orange peel deeply moisturize leaving the skin with an amazing sense of freshness and a velvety sheen all day long.
    • Especially suited for oily skin.
    • Contains certified organic Neem and Aloe Vera.
    • Free from petrochemicals, parabens, SLS/SLES PEG/PPG, Genetically modified ingredients(GMO) and other synthetic ingredients.
Additional Information: Just Herbs has a wide range of skin care products. All these products are made with 100% natural ingredients which suit all skin types.

My take on the product:





The product comes in a sturdy transparent plastic bottle with a pump dispenser on the top which is further covered by a plastic cap. Packaging is handy but I didn’t like the plastic cap concept covering the dispenser on the top as it is not a good leak proof system in my opinion. The product has a gel based consistency, totally runny in nature. Face wash is orange in color and has a pleasant refreshing smell of oranges and more like sandalwood we can say. It doesn't lather much but cleans face well, leaving my skin squeaky clean. I have dry skin but it tends to get combination in the summers, so apart from the oily T-zone area my skin behaves weirdly dry and patchy even in the summers, but I couldn’t feel any dryness after washing my face for the presence of honey as it acts as a nourishing agent in the face wash and it can pull out those dirt and impurities from my skin making it clean and smooth from everyday pollution. And yes it doesn’t irritate my sensitive nose and chin area. All you need a pea size of the product for each application, so obviously a 100 ml bottle can serve you for long.

Pros:

·         Contains all natural ingredients
·         Free from parabens, SLS and SLES
·         Gel based perfect consistency for a face wash
·         Gives a soft and supple skin after each application
·         Removes dirt and impurities from daily pollution leaving skin squeaky clean
·         Doesn’t make skin dry and thus maintains skin hydration.
·         Pleasant refreshing smell
·         Suitable for all skin types people


Cons:

·         I couldn’t find any

Verdict:

Overall I am impressed with this cleanser. I have dry to combination skin, and this doesn’t dry up my face but pulls out the excess oil and dirt from oily t-zoned area. Though it doesn’t lather much but cleanses well leaving my skin soft without irritating my sensitive skin area. I would recommend it to all skin type people, give it a try and let me know how you find it.

That’s all for today darlings!

L’OREAL UV PERFECT ADVANCED 12H UV PROTECTOR SPF50+ EVEN COMPLEXION REVIEW


Hi Friends!



Hope you all are doing well. Today I am here with a product from L’OREAL, UV perfect SPF50 Advanced 12h UV protector, a sun guard is very necessary for all seasons but more in summers, it is a much needed item whenever we step out into the sun and we cannot skip it for a single day. Summer is in full swing here in Kolkata with scorching heat and sweat and with other essentials to beat this heat I got this high SPF sun guard, few weeks before. I was little skeptical while buying this product as I haven’t tried any skincare product from L’OREAL before but somehow I convinced myself and bought it. So today I am here to discuss whether this product worked on my sensitive skin or not!

So let’s jump into the review now J

What the product says:


Every day, your skin faces multiple aggressions such as UV rays and atmospherical pollution that trigger the creation of free radicals, responsible for attacking cells and breaking elastin and collagen fibres. The result is a deep alteration of skin and cells function.
UV Perfect gives you an inside/ out to protection against brown spots, skin darkening and premature ageing. The patented association of Mexoryl SX and XL [XL Block] provides optimal UVB and reinforced UVA protection. To prevent dullness, the formula is enriched in Detoxyl to inhibit pollutants fixation on the skin.
The ultimate UV & pollution shield, for a proven long-lasting protection for your skin!
A powerful Anti-Oxidant Complex now supplements Activa Cell in the formula, to reinforce protection against free radicals and better shield cells, elastin and collagen fibers.


Price:

525(INR) for 30ml

My Take on the Product:




The product comes in a very slim pearl white sturdy tube with a twisted cap on the top which keeps the product secure from inside. There is a narrow nozzle inside to dispense the product and overall the packaging is quite handy to carry wherever you want. Product has a light beige color and almost negligible smell, so it is not going to bother sensitive noses like me. It has a little thick consistency which is perfect and the application is very easy as the product is very smooth and gets absorb quickly, application is done with light hand dabbing or massaging and it will not leave any white cast behind. It feels light on my skin and doesn't lead to any sweating like other sun guards. It has further sheer whitening formula so you can skip your bb cream for daily use. It could not hide dark spots but can conceal light uneven skin tones and can give an even smooth finish. It is light in nature, and you couldn’t feel any greasiness in your hands or face post application but keeps skin moisturized. I have combination to dry skin type and sensitive around nose and chin area, this product works absolutely fine on those area without causing any itching or redness. It gives a dewy finish post application and I prefer to cover it up with a powder compact to avoid any kind of sweating in the summer. I like how it gives me an instant whitening effect with fresh look which remains for 2 to 3 hours in Kolkata’s humid weather along with compact powder, in my opinion this is quite decent, you may need the feel of reapplication after 4 to 5 hours if you want heavy duty application of this product. With high value of SPF, it protects my skin from sun tanning and harmful UV rays ofcourse. Oily skin type people can skip this product as it will make their skin look more greasy or oily but best suited for dry skin people. 

Pros:

·         Handy travel convenient packaging
·         Works as sun guard as well as sheer whitening agent (you can skip your bb cream)
·         Contains SPF 50 which is high enough to combat against heat
·         Product gets absorbed easily and doesn’t feel any greasiness (oily skin people may feel it little heavy and hence greasy too)
·         Gives instant glowing and dewy effect which remains for sometime
·         Can able to hide light blemishes
·         Makes skin like naturally fresh and toned
·         It doesn’t leave any white cast post application
·         It works as a UV protector
·         Gives moisturizing effect

Cons:

·         Little expensive
·         Not for oily skin as it gives a dewy finish

Verdict:

Overall I am satisfied with my purchase, apart from the price this is a quite decent product that you could try, which can protect your skin from sun damage as well as can give you an instant even toned dewy finish look. I do recommend this product especially to all my dry skin beauties.
