My thoughts about the Just Herbs Herb Enriched skin tint

The skin tint comes in a pump bottle but I got the sample in a jar packaging.The packaging is travel friendly and sturdy.It has all the ingredients written at the back of the jar.It is available in only one shade right now which is not a good thing.The shade is light beige color with warm undertones.It will suit a majority of light to medium skin girls but  will not work for dusky to deeper girls.The tint is light weight and absorbs quickly into the skin.It does not have any significant smell .I applied it after applying my toner and it was not drying at all.It blends beautifully into the skin and provides adequate moisture to my dry skin.My skin was smooth and soft to touch.It gives a matte shine free look.It provides sun protection which is great.Now coming to the coverage,I was excited to know what coverage this chemical free skin tint will be able to give but it disappoints me.It have minimum or no coverage.I do not have acne issues so can not comment on that but it was not able to cover some pigmentation around my lip area.It has no coverage at all.I wish it had little coverage like BB and CC cream.It was not able to even out my skin tone .If you have very problematic skin this product is not for you.But what I like about this product is that it makes my skin look fresh and dewy.It is for those who want natural glowy skin.If you are expecting some coverage from this you will be disappointed.It look natural and gives no makeup kinda look.Lets summarise the pro n cons .

PROS

  • Light weight
  • Make skin soft and radiant
  • Chemical free and not tested on animals
  • Gives Sun protection
  • Moisturising
  • Make skin shine free and matte

CONS

  • Expensive
  • Only one shade available
  • Provides no coverage
  • Not suitable for people with problematic skin

Rating :3/5

Overall,I think it is a good product but it lacks in the coverage part.It has so many beneficial ingredients and incorporating it in daily skin care routine can give amazing results.It is called skin tint but it barely provide any tint to the skin which is kinda disappointing.If you have naturally beautiful skin you can go for this for no makeup everyday sort of look.

Thanks for reading.

Lemme know your thoughts in the comments below and share your thoughts about the product too.

Makeup Revolution Redemption Acid Brights Palette : Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about another palette from Makeup Revolution London.This is my third palette from the brand and many more are in my wish list.These are very affordable and specially when on discount.The only reason to purchase this palette was the presence of purple,orange and berry toned magenta shades in the palette.Ever since the launch of Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette orange and magenta colors are so much in trend.As ABH palette is really expensive in India so I am always in search of palettes with similar colors. This palette has many neon shades which I am not going to use,some of you might use them but I am not courageous enough to wear such colors. Still I bought it because it was on discount and except 2 or 3 colors all colors can be used.

Price Rs 1200 .I got it for Rs 450 from an insta seller.

 

DSC03633DSC03626DSC03628My thoughts about Acid Bright Palette

The product comes in a sleek bar type palette. The brand name is printed in the front of the palette.The packaging is travel friendly and it has all the details and ingredients of the product at the back of the palette. It comes with a dual ended sponge tip applicator. It contains 12  eye shadows  both in matte and metallic finish. These eye shadows are perfect for creating  bold,bright and sultry smokey looks.  The eye shadows do not have any names.All shades are soft and smooth and can be easily worked on and blended. It is advisable to apply eye shadow primer for best colour payoff and prevent creasing. These shadows stay for 7 to 8 hours with primer and 4 to 5 hours without primer after which it starts to fade. These shadows have minimum fall outs and kick back.This palette is a very close dupe of Sleek Acid palette.The shimmers are very soft and pigmented however some matte colors are a bit chalky,but it can be make workable by layering on a few times.Purple is the least pigmented eye shadow as u can see in the swatches also.I have numbered the eyeshadows from left to right for the purpose of explaining.

  1. Berry toned magenta (matte)
  2. White (matte)
  3. Neon green (matte)
  4. Neon Orange (matte)
  5. Cobalt blue (shimmer)
  6. Aqua blue (shimmer)
  7. Pinky purple (matte)
  8. Khaki Gree (matte)
  9. Neon pink (matte)
  10. Neon green (matte)
  11. Silver Grey (shimmer)
  12. Black (matte)

DSC03629

Pros

  • Affordable and Travel friendly
  • Good for beginners
  • Easily blendable
  • Easily available
  • Shimmers are pretty

 

Cons 

  • Matte shades are a bit chalky
  • Staying power without primer is not good.
  • Packaging not comparable with high end brands.
  • Contains parabens
  • No mirror

Rating – 4/5

Overall it is a great buy for beginners who want to play with bold bright colors.It is a nice palette for the price.The shadows are not top quality but not bad either.The shadows are blendable and workable.

 

Thank you for reading.

Please let me know your thoughts about the palette in the comment section.

Just Herbs Livelyclean Honey exfoliating face cleansing gel : Review

Hey everyone,

How are you all?Today I am going to talk about a product from Just Herbs.Just Herbs is an Indian brand which produce mainly Ayurveda inspired skincare products.I love natural and organic products and Just Herbs is an affordable option.The products are very good quality.The products are free from mineral oil,paraben,SLS ,SLES free.I have used its face mask and body wash and was very impressed.

DSC03587

Product Claims :

This foaming face cleansing gel is enriched with Neem, Holy Basil and Turmeric known for antiseptic properties. It provides gentle exfoliation with Arjuna, Symplocos bark and jojoba meal, banishes impurities from the clogged pores. It dissolves and eliminates dead epithelial cells exposing the tingling fresh clean skin beneath with the help of Orange peel.

  • Free from petrochemicals, parabens, SLS/SLES PEG/PPG, Genetically modified ingredients(GMO) and other synthetic ingredients
  • Note: Avoid using on active acneDSC03588DSC03589

My thoughts about the product

This is a cleansing gel with micro exfoliators. The actual full size bottle has pump dispenser which is very convenient for a runny product like this,however sample bottle which I got does not have a pump.The cleanser cum exfoliating gel is brown in color and looks like honey actually.The smell is like rose and kewda mixed together.The smell does not linger at all.It has fine exfoliating particles which are very gentle and not harsh on the skin at all.I used it on my damp face and massage in circular motions for a minute and rinse it with plain water.It rinses off very easily and never makes my skin dry.Honey is the base of the product which help to keep skin hydrated.Most of the exfoliating cleansers make my dry skin stretchy after washing but this one never did that.It has neem,tulsi,arjuna,ornage peel,honey etc.All these are magical for skin if used regularly. The consistency of the gel is neither too thick nor watery.It spreads on the face easily.It does not foam at all which is good for dry skin people like me.I have used it many times and I feel it make my skin clean and brighter.It removes all the dead skin cells hence,a glowy brighter skin.I am planning to buy full size of this once my current face wash is finished.I do not find any con of the product.If you are searching for a mild cleanser you can go for this.

Ratings  :5/5

Overall it is good cleansing gel with beneficial ingredients.It cleanses the skin gently.I do not know how it will work for oily skin girls but for dry skins it is a thumbs up product.

My experience with The Nature,s Co. Rosemary & Hibiscus  hair mask

It comes in a plastic tub with a green cap.The packaging is fuss free and good quality.The hair mask is brown in colour. It is very easy to make this hair mask.I usually mix it with water to make a paste and then apply it for 15 minutes.It can also be mixed with curd .It smells and look exactly like heena powder (Mahendi) but the weird part is  that it does not contain Heena powder.But the smell is not as strong as Heena powder,it vanishes as you wash the hair mask.The smell is not bothering to me at all.It is quite easy to rinse off the hair pack.My biggest doubt with this pack was that since it is powder based when it will dry,its gonna be tough to remove it but surprisingly it rinsed off pretty easily.I have used this mask many times and I find that it makes my hair smooth and more manageable.I cannot comment on its hair fall claim because I need to use it regularly to comment on such claims.But what I like about it is that it makes my hair shiny and smooth.If you have dull and frizzy hair,you can try this out.It will definitely give some shine and smoothness to the hair.It has so many beneficial ingredients and it is 100% organic so it is gonna benefit in some way or the other. Amla (Indian Gooseberry),Rosemary,Hibiscus are proved to be beneficial for hair in many ways.

Pros

  1. 100% organic

Batistie Dry shampoo Fruity and cheeky cherry: Review

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Batistie dry shampoo.Batistie is a UK brand it recently launched in India.It is my first ever dry shampoo and I am very excited to share it with you guys.There was no concept of dry shampoo in India couple of years ago.I remember Loreal Professionals dry shampoo on Ankita from Corallista,s blog.Then I came to know about dry shampoo.The concept is really helpful for girls who have oily scalp.It is a blessing for college going girls.

Lets start with the review .

Price : 299 for 30 grams.They come in different size variants.

DSC03551Product description :

Batiste Dry Shampoo is perfect to use between washes. A quick burst revitalizes hair & removes any excess grease. Hair feels gorgeously clean & fresh with added body & texture.

My thoughts about the Batistie dry shampoo

Batistie is famous for their dry shampoos so I was pretty confident about the product.It comes in cylindrical tin spray bottle.All the ingredients and instructions are mentioned at the back of the bottle.The packaging is very chic and cute.It looks really pretty on my dressing table.These come in variety of fragrances I picked fruity and cheeky cherry.The fragrance is very fresh and fruity.The fragrance is not too strong to bother any one.I love the smell.It is very affordable and a little goes a long way.The spray works fine to dispense the product.I purchased the smaller size variant which is very travel friendly.You can carry it in your purse and use when you want to add extra omph to your tresses.It is instructed to spray 30 cms away from hair and rub it so that the product absorbs all the grease.I have used it many times and I was very amazed with the results.It instantly freshens up the hair and give it some volume and texture.It is great for girls who have thin hair.The product easily get absorbs and all the white powder is gone in a couple of seconds of rubbing.It is good for those who are not advised to wash their hairs often due to dandruff or other scalp problems.I think it is a great product and it is a must have in every girl’s stack.I do not find any con in terms of performance but I think availability is an issue.These are available online and offline in some selected cities.DSC03555

Rating :4.5/5

P.S – I will love to thanks and appreciate those who subscribe to my blog recently.I cannot express my gratitude towards you all in words.Loads of love

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Serum : Review

Hey everyone,

I am going to talk about a serum from The Body Shop.It is the Drops of Youth youth concentrate.It is a part of anti aging range of The Body Shop.I got this sample bottle in one of my MSM box.The Body Shop is my favourite brands of skincare products but the availability was an issue but they are now available on Nykaa.I love their hand creams and shower gels.This is my first ever serum from the brand .Lets see how it works.

Price :Rs 2995 for 30 ml

Company Claims :

Our certified organic range has been created for the first signs of ageing. This innovative concentrate helps to enhance surface skin condition, leaving it looking smoother, fresher and healthier.

  • Helps enhance surface skin condition
  • Smoothes
  • Instantly moisturising
  • 99% of ingredients are of natural origin
  • This is one of our beauty gems – discover more

Ingredients

Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Propanediol, Fagus Sylvatica Bud Extract, Chondrus Crispus/Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Sodium Hyaluronate, Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Adenosine, Parfum/Fragrance, Leontopodium Alpinum Meristem Cell Culture, Linalool, Crithmum Maritimum Callus Culture Filtrate, Eryngium Maritimum Extract, Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Citronellol, Malva Sylvestris Flower Extract/Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower Extract, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Limonene, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Xanthan Gum

 

 

DSC03563

My thoughts about the product:

It comes in a green colored plastic bottle with a black dropper.The dropper makes it convenient to use and controls the amount of the product.I have the sample size so it is travel friendly.The serum is transparent and it absorbs quickly into the skin.I apply 2 or 3 drops and it spreads evenly.In the beginning it looks little sticky but the stickiness vanishes after couple of seconds.I use it at night after applying toner and before moisturiser.It is light weight and it is odourless.It is not too oily ,when it absorbs no greasiness can be seen on the skin.I was not expecting much hydration from this serum but it surprised me.I got soft,supple and glowing skin when I got up in the morning.It makes my DRY skin smooth.Now coming to the anti aging part.Firstly,I want to make it clear that I am in my late 20s and do not have significant ageing issues but it is a good idea to take anti aging product in late 20s.I do have some fine lines under my eyes I have used it for a month but it does not affect fine lines.It may affect fine lines if used for a longer time.DSC03558DSC03559

Overall,I am impressed with the quality and moisturisation which it gives to my skin.It is very important to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised to keep aging signs away.If used regularly this serum will definitely help to combat first signs of ageing and it claims the same too.If you are looking for a serum to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation you may not like this.Another con I think is that it is very expensive.

Thank you so much,

Thanks for reading

XOXO

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Brown : Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,

I love wearing brown kajal during day time and a brown kajal is staple in my vanity.I love how brown kajal defines eyes without making it too obvious.I am going to review Lakme eyeconic brown kajal. This is among those products which I have repurchsed. Indian market have a few brown kajals and it is a good affordable option.Lets begin with the review now.DSC03349

Price  Rs 250 for 0.35 grams.

Product description

  • 10 Hr.
  • No smudging.
  • Waterproof.
  • Dermatologically tested.

My thoughts about the product :

The kajal comes in a sleek black colored twist up pencil.The pencil and the cap both are black in color.It is travel friendly and very convenient to use.It is safe to carry it in purse.The cap perfectly fits the pencil.It comes in five different shades which is very impressive.It is cocoa brown kajal with a matte finish.It is very pigmented and smooth when applied.It works pretty well on both upper and lower lid.It does not smudge easily so if you want that smudged look, be quick.It is creamy and does not tug or pull on the lids.The staying power is good it stays for around 5 to 6 hours on the lower lashline and 3 to 4 hours on upper lid.It is waterproof.If you want to increase the longevity you can set it with a dark brown eye shadow.It is very affordable and easily available both online and offline.This is my second pencil, I love everything about it. Only con I think is that it does not live to the claim of 10 hours stay.I will definitely repurchase it once this gets over.

Rating :5/5DSC03348DSC03352

Overall,I really like this product and recommend everyone to buy it.
