Vedantika Herbals - Instant Glow Mask,Skin Polishing Scrub,Neem-Tulsi Shampoo Review

I have slowly changing my skincare routine from using too many chemical products to using some natural herbal products. I am not really in a hurry to see any quick changes but I am excited about the fact that my skin is getting something that is totally natural and cruelty free. There are not many known brands for being 100% natural and cruelty free but out of them, I can surely pick Vedantika Herbals as one of the very known brands in South India.

Spinz Sun Tan Remover Review - Expect the Unexpected

Hello my lovely readers~
Happy Dappy Sunday <3 Here I am back with one quick review on a product that I tried and tested. Thanks to the social media! Thanks to the blogging world that I noticed people are raving about this product. Who loves to get a sun tan.. I DO! But I hate it when it stays more than a day or two. I want to get a tan only when I can take it off whenever I want to :D I know it is not really a good wish. However, we now got a product that totally heard us and released a product that is going to work on the suntan. I am referring the SPINZ Sun Tan Remover

Richfeel Skin Logix Advance Whitening Night repair Serum Review

I am pretty much new to the use of Serum and the night creams. It is like, I do the usual CTM every night before I go and that't it. It's more like I use my moisturizer and I sleep. I never felt the need to have a cream exclusive for the night time and I never wanted to start. This may be because my skin is oily and I always wake up to an oily film over my face and mostly the T Zone is always oily. The only thing I regularly take care of is the ointments(for my untimely pimples) that are given by my dermatologist.
But people change not really but the climate and the skin texture changes. I kind of observed it last year during winter and that's when I started using a moisturizer exclusively in the night time. When I got the opportunity to use the latest products from Richfeel in their Skin Logix range, I couldn't just say no. Okay, we might have heard of so many night creams/serums but I am sure you might have used at least 4-5 creams to find your ideal match. Because, I felt few night creams are too thick and gave me pimples and where are few others are very light textured that didn't really provide me any moisture. One point that I realized is that, according to your skin texture and climate, the affect of your night creams change too. That's because, the same night cream that I used in summer is not really helpful during winter and vice versa.
But when we consider the serums,most of them are light in consistency and are meant to be used before moisturizer.
So..what does this particular night serum say.. 
Product Description:
Richfeel Skin Logix Advance Whitening Night repair Serum reveals a fairer and younger looking skin.The Advanced Night Repair Serum as a skin whitening formula revitalizes, repairs and whitens skin at night when cell renewal is at its peak
Reveal a fairer and younger-looking skin
Wake up to more beautiful skin every day
Price and Quantity:
INR 249 for 25ml

Additional Information:
Apply on clean skin before you go to bed. Apply a drop or two on each fingertip of one hand, touch fingertips of the both hands together, massage serum over face and neck, starting at the center, outward. Repeat if necessary. For best results, use in combination with Balancing Day Cream.

My Take:
To start off, I liked the packaging. I liked the dropper which picks up the required amount and it keeps it clean. As the dropper would never touch the skin, it is totally hygienic too.
The smell is a turn off for me. The brand did really try to incorporate a good smell but the serum turned out to be a bit artificial. But I feel that most serums do not smell good. I can be wrong.(comment below if your serum smells good and if so,which serum do you use.)
The consistency of the serum is a bit runny and only 2-3 drops are good to cover up the entire face. This serum is not that moisturizing and I feel that you are required to use it after your regular CTM. The serum gets absorbed quickly. The next morning, I wake up to a good hydrated skin and I love it. But I think the serum worked the best on my oily/combination skin but not on the dry skin. Also, it did work on my acne spots/marks but with a slow pace. I had to use this serum for almost 2 months regularly to notice any difference. There is still some serum left and I think I would use it up by this month end.

Overall, a good serum which works slowly on the skin. I think this is one of the very affordable serums available in Indian Market and I think you can give it a try. If your only concern is to look fair and want a dewy skin then, you can go ahead with this serum.

L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfect 20+ Day Cream Review

Hey Girls..How is Summer treating you.. The Hyderabad climate is acting weird these days. It rained the whole last week and this week is very pleasant and I see myself liking this sort of weather. As much I enjoy the changes in climate,my skin just acts the opposite way. I have oily-combination skin that reacts on a slight change of weather and choosing a proper skincare regimen is always been a big task. During January, I recieved the L'oreal Paris Skin Perfect day cream to try. I am 20+ and I have got the whole range of products and no wonder, I gave one to my mommy and other to my aunt. I know they are loving the cream. I am here to express my review on the same.
L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfect is a revolutionary skin care range that caters to the specific needs of your skin at every age. It consists of a separate range for women in their 20s, 30s and 40s making personalized skin care easier than ever. The range is backed by 10 years of extensive research at the global and Indian L'Oréal Research and Innovation Labs.

Innovation:
Age 20+ Skin Perfect Range is combined with Perlite and Salicylic Acid which helps keep oiliness, pimples and blemishes at bay through your twenties while giving you that perfect clear skin glow.
Price:

18g for INR 99

L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfect 20+ Day Cream

Package:
The cream comes in a tub. The tub is an off white color with black lettering. The cap is in gold colour that goes in sync with the outer cover of the cream.

My Take:
At the first sight it resembled Lacto Calamine. The cream is off white in colour and looked very thick textured. But it does spread easily and makes the skin instantly bright and matte. The effects of the cream depends on the climate. Because when I used in the January when my skin was a bit dry, the cream made my skin even more dry and my dry cheeks couldn't absorb the cream. I had to stop using the cream till February. Once the climate has settled into normal, the cream seemed to suit my skin. The mattifying factor is a big plus during the hot/humid climate. I am sure I will be using this one for the coming 3 months or so. The T zone is maintained normal without the excess production of oil.

Final Words:
The Day Cream is meant for Oily and Normal Skin beauties. However, the girls with combination skin like me, can use it during the summers without worrying about the skin getting oily. The cream gets absorbed into the skin very quickly and it does act like a good base for makeup. It makes the skin surface even. I observed this when I tried applying a blush :D 
Recommendations:
I have used this for over 45 days and parallely I got under some medical procedures on my skin which obviously resulted in lightening of marks. So, I can not really comment on it's effect on marks but yes, the cream does make the skin look visibly bright and lessens it getting oily.
"Have you used the L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfect 20+ Day Cream ?? If so,what is your take?"

Micro Derm Abration in India-What,How,After Care,My Experience

Okay guys let's face it. We all love to look good and feel good about ourselves. I know not everyone of us are lucky to have perfect skin. Most of the Indian women are naturally have beautiful skin and few may have some difficulties with the skin type and acne. I do not say that it is a problem or something which is unusual. But it just hides our already beautiful skin. I do not shy away to admit the fact that I am a South Indian and I am dusky and my skin is acne prone. I do not say that I have very severe acne(atleast not now) I do get pimples every now and then and my skin is never clear without a blemish. It means, I always had a mark,an acne scar or a blemish.
During my fight to get back my clear skin I came across the chemical peeling,MDA,PRP etc. I have got myself a Chemical Peel two months back.(Do let me know if you want to know about my experience with the chemical peeling) Today, I just had my first MDA.
PRP is not my cup of tea as I am super scared of blood and anything related to injecting something into the body. I have Trypanophobia. I can not imagine myself letting something getting directly into my skin/body.
I am not going to talk about it here but I would like to share my experience with Micro Derm Abration.
Before getting in detail..
Micro Derma Abration in India-What,How,After Care,My Experience
What is MDA aka MicroDermAbration:
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny particles to buff away the top most layer of skin.It can be done in anyway and most of the high-class spa/salons use this method of exfoliation. But the best method would be getting the procedure done by a certified cosmetologist/dermatologist. I got it done in a clinic and my doctor is an MBBS and specialized in Dermatology. I could trust her completely.

Review-Fuschia Natural Handmade Herbal Soaps by Vkare

I am one of those girls who do not mind taking long soothing showers. That too when I get my hands on the soaps that are handmade with less chemicals. Handmade soaps are basically good for skin as they do not strip off the oil from the skin and they make the skin clean and healthy. I have a thing for smell and I love soaps that smell nice and not so overpowering. Recently I got a chance to try out the Fuschia Soaps. I would like to write about my experience about the same.
Before going into the details, I would like to share the company profile.

Perfect Complexion - Skin Care for Dummies

Achieving the maintaining the perfect complexion is something which most women strive for. There are two main factors to achieving a flawless, glowing complexion. The clever and correct application of foundation, concealers etc can help to achieve the perfect look a makeup airbrush kit is perfect for this job but achieving the best results starts on the inside. If you have a clear, bright complexion then you won’t need to cover it with makeup to make you look and feel good – just the minimum amount will suffice.
Here are a few tips to achieve the perfect complexion starting from the inside:
1.Look after yourself
The skin is the largest organ in the body and if you don’t take good care of your body as a whole then it will show through in your skin. Some real “no-no’s” include drinking too much caffeine, drinking too much alcohol, smoking, eating lots of processed foods and over exposure to the sun. Cut down on these things and you should see a difference already.

Body Scrubs! I love love them so much. One reason why I like them so much is that they clean my skin thoroughly and there will no dryness/flakiness.

Premier Dead Sea Neck Cream #premierdeadsea
Have you ever heard of a "Neck Cream" I mean, I never heard about something like this one but when I got it, I was totally bowled over on knowing why you should incorporate a separate regimen for your Neck too. Most of us neglect neck area and do not pay much attention to it which results in sagging or fine lines to appear. Blame my genes but I have a little weird Neck Region. Read on to know more..

Bioque C Plus Moisturising Cream-Review,Swatch

Hey People..how many of you know that Vitamin C is good for skin? Vitamin C helps in keeping the skin healthy and supple. We don't get many moisturizing creams that have Vitamin C in them and I'm sure finding one would be difficult. I guess Bioque has the same query and hence formulated this moisturizing cream.

About the brand:
A scientific approach is at the core of Bioque’s skin care philosophy with a goal of developing cosmetic products that are more than coverups. They are, in fact, designed to employ your own skin's natural processes to improve the skin’s appearance. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines appear less visible, giving the appearance of more youthful skin. Our philosophy also requires that we use only the best and safest cruelty-free ingredients, regardless of cost, and use a sufficient amount of each ingredient to get optimal visible results. Bioque—The Nobel Prize-Winning Difference

Signal Technology—Bioque’s breakthrough signal technology, the delivery system used in Bioque products, delivers over 80% beneficial natural compounds into the interior of skin cells in both the inner and outer layers of skin. In other skincare lines lacking the benefit of signal technology, a much smaller percentage of beneficial compounds penetrates through the cellular walls (an average of 20% as opposed to Bioque’s over 80%); most ingredients are lost on the surface of skin cells.

New Exfolimate, Your Best Mate for Silky Smooth Skin Review #facebodytool

So, we all heard about solid bars with beads to scrub off the dirt or we all have our ready made scrubs that has level of severity set from mild to gritty. Anyway, we are not going in there but we have Exfolimate Face and Body Exfoliation.

Sand for Soapaholics Face Puree - Face Cleanser Review

Ever heard of tomatoes for skincare.? Because, I knew the fact that using tomato juice would help take away the tan and give some healthy glow. But never really used as a cleanser.
But when the brand SAND for Soapaholics launched their new line of facial cleansers, I couldn't stop thinking of getting my hands on them. Here I go..with one of my very favourite cleansers I've ever used.
They gave caption for each of their products and for my new love.. Face Puree
They say "Tomatoes - Indispensable to every kitchen, Indispensable for great skin!"

Helloo beauties..I have a quick confession to make.
