Review of Deyga Organics Rose and Mulethi skin brightening face pack

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blog! I hope you all are good .Today I am here to share my thoughts about a face pack which I have been using from some time ,it is from the brand Deyga Organics. Deyga Organics is an Indian brand based in Tamil Nadu .It has variety of skincare ,haircare and baby care products. The most exciting about this brand is that it is chemical free, na tural, organic and hand crafted. I always love such brands and Deyga Organics has an impressive line of products. So lets continue with my thoughts and opinions about Rose and Mulethi face pack.

Product Description :

Made with powerful ingredients such as rose and mulethi, our natural face pack is the perfect way to rejuvenate dull, lifeless skin. It nourishes the skin using the power of natural ingredients and provides a healthy, bright glow. This face pack can also help even the skin tone and provide a nourished, soft, and supple feeling to the skin.

Price : 490 INR for 200 ml

My thoughts about Deyga Organics Rose and Mulethi face pack

Packaging : It comes in a outer plastic box with the brand name and a label with the note “Made with love Arthi Raghuram” which is a cute gesture. The actual product comes in a sturdy glass bottle with a steel lid. All the details about the product, ingredients, usage etc are clearly mentioned on the label. I think a little wooden spoon can be a great addition and useful too.

Texture and smell : The face pack is in powder from and it can be mixed with milk, rose water or any other liquid as per one’s own requirement.It contains crushed rose petals,oat meal and mulethi as the base ingredients.The powder is neither too coarse nor too fine .It has a perfect texture and when mixed with milk it turns little pinkish because of the rose petals. It has an earthy smell which is very subtle and even sensitive nose can tolerate . I like to mix it with milk and leave it to do magic on my skin for 15 to 20 minutes until it is not completely dry and rinse off with water rubbing in circular motions. It also acts a mild exfoliator which gives a brightening effect.

Performance on my skin : I have a dry skin and after using this religiously for 3 weeks every alternate days I can say my skin is loving this face pack. It does not overly dry my skin because it has skin cherishing essential oils and mulethi which is helpful in nourishing dry and flaky skin. Oatmeal gently removes dead skin resulting in a clear skin.The face pack does not suck moisture from skin which is great in my opinion. It gives a brighter and clean skin ,what else you need from a face pack. It makes my skin soft and provides beautiful glow. It is carefully formulated for dry skin and it does the job .I do not have spots or pigmentation on my skin so cannot comment on that claim but if you are searching for a natural, cruelty free ,chemical free face pack for dry skin this can be great choice.

I am really impressed with this face pack and will definitely try other products from their range. They have various products for different skin types. Moreover, I always say it is very important to establish a skincare routine and follow it regularly to maintain its effect and it is beneficial for the skin in the long run.

I hope you find this post useful.Please share your thoughts and queries in the comments

Thank you.

Disclaimer : Product was kindly send by the brand however my review is 100 percent honest.

The Ordinay Hyaluronic acid 2% + B5 review

hey everyone,

Today I am going to share with you all my experience with a skincare product which I have been using for a long time.It is The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic acid.I have dry skin and normal thick moisturizers were not working for me so thought I should try this serum.I think by now everyone of us know about Hyaluronic acid and its benefits so I am not gonna discuss it here.I will share what I think about this product so lets begin.

Price : 5.99 GBP for 30 ml from Cult beauty ( Not available in India)

Product description:
Featuring three types of hyaluronic acid (at low, medium and high molecular weights) this lightweight serum offers serious skin smoothing – at a surprisingly small price. Penetrating the skin to reach its deeper layers, The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 delivers lasting hydration and offers visible plumping and moisture retention so that skin looks smoother, softer and healthier. The hyaluronic acid at the centre of this super serum attracts up to 1000 times its weight in water, while a brilliant boost of vitamin B5 heals dry and damaged areas by stabilising the skin’s barrier function and promoting the growth of stronger tissue.

My thoughts about the product

It comes in a clear glass bottle with a dropper.The packaging is very basic but it is sturdy and good quality.The outer packaging is also very basic in a white cardboard box with all the details, description and price of the product.The actual product is transparent and has a thick consistency.It is feels tacky if applied too much .It is not water or gel,it is something in between.It is a water based serum and it is supposed to be used before any thick cream or oil based serum.The Ordinary states that only a little amount has to be used so I use only 2 or 3 drops and spread it on my face and neck after toner.It spreads easily and because it is water based it absorbs quickly into the skin.It is light weight and absorbs after massaging for a couple of seconds.The skin instantly feels hydrated and plump.I have dry skin with some dry patches here and there and I have to say that this serum really helps to heal my dry patches.This serum is not meant to be used alone.It should be followed by a moisturizer.I use to apply The Ordinary’s Natural Moisturising factor after applying this.I started using this product six months ago and I am on my second bottle.I actually love this serum.After using one and a half bottle of this serum I can say this serum really helps to heal my dry skin.I started seeing difference in my skin after using one week and still enjoying this product.Since The Ordinary is based on layering products so this serum alone will not be able to give desired results.It is very important to apply a moisturizer after this serum.I absolutely love the combo of Hyaluronic acid 2% and Natural moisturising factors.These two have been my saviors for my skin.I do not have dry patches on my skin now.I have tried it with other moisturizers and it works fine .

It is also very important to follow a routine regularly to see visible differences to the skin.I do not have anything bad to say about this product.It is affordable and little goes a long way.It should be kept in mind that only few drops are required and a moisturizer after it is a must.The only con is it is not available in India but you can check Cult beauty to get International shipping promotion.I purchased it from Cult beauty and was not charged any custom as the total bill was very low.I got it during International shipping free offer.

I hope you find it useful .

Thank you.

Beauty Glazed Mars Palette review.Is it a dupe for Huda beauty Ruby Obsessions?

Hey everyone,

I am back with another eyeshadow palette review.My love for eyeshadows is never ending and cannot stop myself from buying different palettes.Beauty Glazed is an affordable brand which is becoming popular these days.They are usually sold on Aliexpress or amazon.They are very affordable and are popular for duping high end products.I spot this at aliexpress and found them very similar to Huda beauty Gem stone obsessions series of small palettes.They have a red,blue ,emerald and purple themed 9 shadow pans .I picked the red one which is called Mars.

Price : I got it for 250 on aliexpress.

My take on the Product

Packaging : It comes in a cardboard packaging with the brand name and name of the palette written at the front and it has red details and borders going on as it is red themed palette.It does not have mirror.It is light weight and sleek.It is very convenient for travel .Overall,the packaging is average but considering the price cannot complain.

Shades : It has nine shadows .There are five matte shadows and four shimmer shadows.The shades range from peach,coral,hot pink and maroon.It also has a deep shimmery bronze for creating depth to an eye look.The palette lacks a deep dark matte color for creating depth but the shimmery darkest shade can do the job.I tried it to create depth on the outer corners and it worked fine.The palette will not give variety of looks as it is red themed palette so keep that in mind.The shadows are soft but a bit powdery and they have a little fallout.

Texture ,staying power and pigmentation:  The shadows are smooth to touch.The mattes are creamy and they are packed with pigments.Each and every matte color blends nicely and is true to its color as in the pan.The shimmer shades initially feels hard but once the top layer is removed it is creamy and feels like it has an oily base which makes it look very foil on the lids.The formula for shimmer is different from usual palettes.the staying power is 5 to 6 hours which is decent in my point of view.

Is it a Huda beauty Ruby Obsessions Dupe?

I do not have Ruby Obsessions so cannot compare them side by side but I have seen many swatches and videos online.I can say that has similar color scheme.Some shades like first one in the second row is more deep in Huda’s palette,second shade in second row is a bit different and third shade in second row has a black base with red shimmers.So,in my opinion the colors are not 100% similar but the idea behind this palette is very much inspired by Huda’s ruby obsessions palette.The first and last rows are almost same as Huda’s palette.
In a nutshell it is not a bang on dupe but the color scheme,idea and thought behind the palette is same. You can get similar kinds of looks with these palettes.If you are on a budget or Huda beauty is not available in your country and you what to have a palette with the same color family,it is a good option.The quality for the price is amazing and you will not regret buying this.It is definitely a stand out palette in my collection.The colors are bright and a bit different.
If you are searching for an affordable huda beauty ruby replacement.,this is a good option to go.

Colourpop Ultra glossy lip Champagne mami

hey everyone,

Today I am back with another Colourpop product review.Colourpop had free International shipping during black friday sale and I went over board and purchase many things.So many Colourpop reviews coming soon.Colourpop launched their new ultra glossy formula.I have Moonchild from Kathleen lights collab and really enjoy the formula.I picked Champagne Mami and here are my thoughts about the product.


Glass-like shine with subtle shimmer and sheer tint. Enriched with jojoba oil to moisturize, nourish, and and provide a cushiony feel for juicy, fuller-looking lips.

Shade description :You gotta hit them angles with your phone out in this rose gold

Price : 6 USD. I got it during an offer for 4.8 USD

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Glossy Champagne Mami It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  small circles printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with silver cap.Champagne mami is a rose gold gloss with very tiny sparkles and has pearlescent formula which gives glass like shine with subtle shimmer.It looks beautiful in the bottle and on the lips as well.The shade looks beautiful on my lips without lip liner also.It looks very natural and gives a sheer muted pink tint to the lips.I think it will suit a variety of skin tones.I looks amazing on my Indian skin.It is a perfect every day gloss. The formula is light weight and non sticky .

The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a gloss.It stays for 3 hours or so then it needs to be reapplied.The staying power is decent as it is a gloss and touch ups the always needed.It does not have any smell.It keeps the lips hydrated,gives high shine and make lips look plump and juicy. It also has a brush tip applicator which I like a lot.It helps to spread the product evenly on lips.The brush tip also help to layer gloss on any other lipstick without disturbing the colour.I do not find any con or drawback of the product.I enjoy it.I highly recommend this colour to everyone.

Hope you enjoy this post

Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy duty Kohl Green light review

hello folks,

I love colored eye liners and I have many in my collection .They instantly makes you look gorgeous without much effort.They can also be used as base for smokey eyes.So,I make a point to have all colors in my collection.Sugar Cosmetics launched more shades in their Stroke of Genius heavy duty kohl and I grabbed green shade .I have their original stroke of Genius in Back to black which I have reviewed here.So lets get into the review now.

Price : Rs 499

Product description :

Eye makeup can be tricky but a stroke of genius can put you at ease. Add to that intense colour and soft creamy texture and you know you’ve been hooked for life. We’re on about SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl – a waterproof Kohl pencil that can add pretty to your eyes in a single swipe. Its wax-based formula spreads evenly and lasts for up to 8 hours. Not just that, it comes with a free sharpener to ensure your eye makeup is always on point.

My Thoughts about Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy duty Kohl Light Green

It comes in a jet black kohl with green color band at the end and black cap.It is sharp enable and comes with a sharpener.The outer cover is a cardboard with standard Sugar Cosmetics logo and graphic.It is made in Italy.The packaging is slim and chic.It looks classy yet simple at the same time.

The kohl is light green in color with a satin finish.The pencil is smooth and glides easily it is creamy and rich.It is so pigmented that only one swipe is enough to cover the eyes.

It is easy to smudge the kohl as well.The sharpener provided with it very good quality and does the job perfectly.It does not irritate my eyes and was comfortable to wear for long hours also.I have easily worn this for 6 hours and it stayed on my waterline for long time but it kinda faded on my upper lid.The thing I do not like about this liner is that it can easily smudge with the touch of your hands or something.If you will not touch it will not budge or move but if you are habitual of touching your eyes it can get really messy.Another drawback is that it is not a twist up packaging.Twist up pencils are more convenient and no product is wasted during sharpening.

It can be used a base for green eye looks or can be used as lower lash liner for special occasions.It subtle sheen brighten up the eye and makes it appropriate for special occasions or festivals.The formula is very high quality and feels buttery which I love.I think the formula is amazing for the price point.

I think it is good product but Maybelline Gel liners are more long wearing but if you love the shade you can go for this .You will not be disappoint.

My current Eye Care routine using Juicy chemistry

Hi everyone ,

Today I am going to talk about another skincare brand.We all love organic and pure skincare and juicy chemistry is among India’s emerging organic brand.I have also reviewed there products earlier and enjoyed using them. I was searching for affordable yet chemical free under eye products and decided to give these a try.These products are free from chemical and have no preservatives. Currently Juicy chemistry have three products under their eye Care range.I picked all of them.These products are :

1. Sweet Orange and Chamomile soothing eye mist – This is an eye mist and it is supposed to be sprayed on eyes directly or applied on a cotton pad and keep for 10 to 15 minutes.It is a wonderful blend for various hydrating ingredients . I find it very hydrating and an extra boost for my under eye skin.It is an extra step and I feel it can be used when you want to pamper your eyes a little bit more.I like to keep it for 10 min and it makes the delicate under eye area more awake and reduces puffiness.img_20181102_1423212966445011057533847.jpg

2. Prickly pear and Tamanu serum – This serum is to be used in the morning after toner.lt has a oil like consistency but it is very light weight and absorbs very quickly. It has a strong smell like all essential oils have but it does not stay for long time.It is meant for under eye wrinkles and fine lines.I have not noticed any major difference in my fine lines but it is packed with anti oxidants which are beneficial for our skin.img_20181102_1423461988179892837717439.jpg

3. Coffee and Green tea under eye cream. It is an eye cream and it is required to be used at night. It has the goodness of green tea which is an excellent anti oxidant and coffee infused almond oil .This cream is yellow in color and it has a liquid consistency.It comes in a jar which is not a good packaging for such a product .It is like a blend of oil and butter and melts in hot climate.You can refrigerate it to maintain the cream texture but it melts very easily.So be careful while opening it.I do not have major under eye circles so cannot comment on that but it is very good moisturiser for under eye.It has a strong smell like all JC products have. Only a small amount of product is needed to cover the eye area.img_20181102_152931_70419129902310408064.jpg

I am using these products for one month . I will say I wanted something extra for my under eye skin because I have the most fine lines under my eyes. I wanted to be extra cautious so that the situation does not get worse. I want to control it from an early age . I love these products .These are natural and chemical free and these are not gonna harm your under eye skin in any way. I cannot guarantee reduction in under eye circles . But I feel some difference in my fine lines but very minor .I am hoping that continuous use of these products will help my fine lines to fade or at least control new lines to form.

So I would like to say that we all must include something for our under eyes because the under eye skin is the most sensitive and need special care .JC is a good option if you want chemical,mineral oil and preservatives free product at reasonable prices.

Forest essentials rose water facial toner review

DSC04739hello everybody,

how are you all? I am really sorry for the lack of posts as I was engage in some other things in my life but I have various posts in my mind. I hope I am able to follow my plans.Anyways,today I present you  a product which is from a luxury ayurveda brand.This brand is praised by various people and it is very expensive .So I was in search of natural toner which is free from alcohol,parabens and mineral oil and this grabbed my attention.I really enjoyed my Lotus Herbals Rose tone but it has parabens so I decided to try some other product.This is a natural steam distilled rose water from Forest essentials.I am very excited to try any thing from this brand because I have heard so many good things about it.I have finished 70% of the bottle and I am ready with my thoughts.Lets begin.

Product Claims:

Our pure and active water-based toners are made from floral, fruit and herbal extracts essential to the Ayurvedic philosophy; to hydrate, tone and revive the skin.

The freshest flowers of the voluptuous Rose is steam distilled for its pure essential oils and the hydrating floral water residue is used for the intensely hydrating Facial Toner.

After steam distilling, precious Rose oil’s hydrating fragrant residue becomes the finest Rosewater.

DSC04740

Price: Rs 350 for 50 ml

My thoughts about Forest Essential Rosewater facial toner

The toner comes in a dark blue plastic  bottle with a spray nozzle and transparent cap to cover the nozzle.The product looks luxurious and packaging is elegant.The spray even distribute the toner on the face with 3 to 4 sprays.I love spray toners they are very convenient to apply and when you need to refresh your face.The toner is transparent in color.The toner smells very pleasant not very strong or artificial.It smells like roses obviously .I do not have any issue with the smell of the toner .I think everyone will love the smell.But the negative thing about   the nozzle is that it stops working when the product was 30 percent left,it made me really sad.It made it very inconvenient to use  the product.

Rose water is said to reduce the pores,balance the ph level of the skin,anti aging and many other skin benefits.I think this toner helped to balance the ph level of my skin and moreover when I feel my face is looking  a bit dull and oily it instantly freshens it up.It shrinks my pores and provide a boost of moisture.I really enjoy using this product.I spray twice or thrice this on my face to freshen up my face.I am loving the effect of this on my skin.It is very important to include a toner in your skin care routine,I highly suggest everyone to include an alcohol free toner ,it really makes a difference.

Overall I really love this product.I am also planning to buy some other products from forest essential.It is doing great for my dry skin and I am happy to purchase it.I highly recommend it.It is on the costly side but there are various other affordable options available in the market.

I hope you enjoy the post

Thank you

Colourpop Lippie Stix Brink and Cami : Review & Swatches

Hi peeps,

I am back again with a Colourpop review and this time we will discuss about their lippie stixs. Colourpop was running a BOGO offer on their lippie stixs so I have to avail the offer.BOGO offers are amazing .I never miss them and Colourpop keep bringing these tempting deals now and then.Brink was in my wishlist for so long so I ordered Brink and Cami. Read on to know more.

DSC04699DSC04701

Price : I got it for Rs 300 each plus shipping.

Product Claims :

Lippie Stix Formula contains Vitamin E, Mango, Avocado, and Shea butter for added comfort and moisture. None of our Lippie formulas contain any nasty ingredients like Parabens or Sulfates.

Matte Full-coverage lipstick that is super long-wearing, ultra comfortable, and loaded with pigment

Matte X Full-coverage, SUPER matte lipstick (think liquid lip status) with a very unique, lightweight, and velvety feel.

 

My thoughts about Colourpop lippie stix 

Packaging : It comes in a white coloured retractable packaging.It has a white cap  and shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the lippie stix.I found lippie stix smaller than Ultra matte and satin lipsticks.The packaging is nice,light weight and travel friendly.

DSC04703

DSC04705
Cami

DSC04706
Brink

Shades :Brink is a rosey terracota shade. .It will suit all skin tones.It is a matte finish

     

DSC04708
Brink( top) Cami (Bottom)

       Cami is Matte X finish and it is a cool toned mauve color.It will also suit all skins.

Both the colours are suitable for everyday and office wear.

Formula and staying power : The formula is velvet matte and light weight on lips.These are not as drying as ultra matte and it can cover dry patches but it is always a good idea to moisturise the lips.It is very pigmented and single swipe is enough to cover lip completely.However,they are not transfer proof.It is best for those who are not habitual of wearing liquid lipsticks but love the finish.It give same finish but with comfort and hydration.It stays for 4 to 5 hours and can survive light snacking.It fades evenly and it easy to reapply it.It is easy to remove these.

Overall,I really like the finish and the formula of the lippie stix.The price is also reasonable and the colours are amazing.The only drawback I found is the staying power and the fact that they cannot survive light meals.  I totally recommend these cuties.

Hope you enjoy the post.Lemme know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you,

XOXO

Colourpop Ultra Glossy lip Moon Child : Review and swatches

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Colourpop again but this time I will talk about their gloss formula.This is my first ultra gloss purchase from Colourpop.I have not purchased any gloss since a long time and glosses are making a comeback so I thought why not try this.It is a collab product by Kathleen Lights.She is my favourite and her collabs are always talk of the town.So without much rambling lets begins .

DSC04640DSC04642

Product claims :

High shine gloss with medium-coverage, crème finish in a moisturizing and non-sticky, comfortable formula.

Stay wild in this pinky nude with gold glitter

Price : 6 USD .I got it for 550 plus shipping

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Gloss Moonchild

It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  stars printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with golden cap with star printed at the neck of the bottle.It has kathleen’s name also written at the outer as well as inner packaging. Moonchild is pale pink gloss and it has golden specks of glitter.The shade is too pale for me if applied alone but with a nude lip liner underneath it works fine.It is a perfect nude for very fair to fair skin girls.Medium to deep skins can make it work by applying a nude liner of their choice.The formula is light weight and non sticky .The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a nude gloss.It stays for 2 hours or so then it needs to be reapplied.The staying power is decent as it is a gloss and touch ups the always needed.It is a beautiful nude for fair girls but I will not recommend it to Indian medium skin girls like me.

dsc04647.jpg

Overall I enjoy the formula of the gloss and it is a nice product to have.Kathleen nailed it with the colour ,formula and packaging.

Thanks for reading
