My Review on The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion Review:

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion comes in the light green transparent bottle with a white pump dispenser. As  it is not possible to carry such kind of bottles all around so I wish they introduce small sized bottles.

The moment you take some lotion from the bottle. It smells ahmazzzzing .. Yes that’s so heavenly. It soothes the mind and relaxes the senses . When applied on the skin, the skin feels soft and fresh. It looks like a white cream lotion and gets absorbed quickly. It feels super soft and light weight on the skin.

Overall , I really am fond of this lotion . Its been priced the same as the The Body Shop lotions . You should definitely try this range . I would like to try the body butter from this range too.

How do you like this range?? Do comment and let us know about your experience.

Enjoy,

THE BODY SHOP FUJI GREEN TEA BODY WASH REVIEW

19 Aug

Hey all,
We all go through those hectic working days which stress us a lot  and gives us an urge to relax and go for a spa. But it is not possible to do that all the time. So The Body Shop introduced a range of Fuji Green Tea. Now if you haven’t checked that range yet, I recommend you to go and check it when you can. Recently I bought some stuff from The Body Shop and restocked my essentials. Today I am going to review one of my latest essentials which is The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash.

My Review on  The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash:

To start with The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash comes in a light green transparent bottle which is super handy and travel friendly. As it is transparent , you can actually check how much product remains inside it.

It is a super cute bottle which can be stored anywhere you like.  Now as soon as you will open the cap, it smells so awesome, like a fragrance which is so refreshing and will rest your senses. The texture of this the body wash is liquid and transparent in colour.

IMG_86906-01

I like the effect it creates after applying it on my skin. It lathers really well. It creates a spa kind of environment and is apt for those hectic days of your life. This can be used on a regular basis and is not overpriced . In fact I got this from their online store with a 20% percent discount on it. So you can keep on checking their online store for great deals.

I usually use this body wash and their body lotion together. The body wash does make my skin softer and better. It is my favourite skincare essential at the moment.

In all, you can try this body wash and it does work great. I will repurchase this once it is over and would like to try their scrub too.

Let me know, how do you like this one??

Enjoyy,

FACE PACKS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

1 Aug

Hey all,

Keeping your face clean is such an integral part of the regime. But do you think is that enough ??

I am sure your answer would be a NOOOOO. To keep our skin refreshed and glowing we try all the ways we can. Right from going to the parlour to following a CTM routine. Yet most of the times our skin remains dull.

We all feel a need to buy the products available in the market  and often they do contain a lot of chemicals and can cause harm to the skin. SO what is the solution then?? Our grandmothers and mothers have always had the skin secrets . They hardly felt the urge to go to the parlour and all they would rely on was home made stuff.

Acne is a big issue , it occurs at any age and at any occasion The face packs I use are very basic and have worked on my skin.So lets go the natural way to keep your acne at bay.

My Skin Type: 

To start with I have always mentioned having Oily Acne Prone Skin. Acne keeps on visiting me when it feels like. So I always follow a CTM routine and use these natural face packs at least twice a week.

Now if you wondering why I am mentioning a face pack brush here, It applies the pack evenly and  is  hygienic to use. You can buy Vega Face Pack Brush which is cheap and effective to use.

How will it benefit the skin:-

Multani Mitti is a form of mud which is high in magnesium . When applied on acne , it helps in controlling the oil and reducing acne.

Rosewater is multipurpose , it can be used in various ways. It refreshes the skin and makes it bright.

 

2) Neem Powder, Multani Mitti, Sandalwood Powder and Rosewater.

Multani Mitti is a form of mud which is high in magnesium . When applied on acne , it helps in controlling the oil and reducing acne.

Review and Swatch- Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush

29 Jun

 

Hey all,

In my last post, I had reviewed a non tinted lip balm from Maybelline which moisturizes the lips and keeps them hydrated. You can check it here. Today I will be reviewing another tinted lip balm of this range.

Berry_Blush_Maybelline_1

About Maybelline Berry Crush Lip Balm-

1. Kiss dull lips goodbye!
2. Moisturise lips for 6 hours with a vibrant pop of colour

For Best Results

Apply your lip balm by starting in the centre of your upper lip. Work from the Ecentre to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

Price :- Rs 190

Available in stores and online at nykaa, flipkart and amazon.

Berry_Blush_Maybelline_2

My Review on Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush:-

I always find tinted lip balms handy and useful. Whenever its a lazy or no makeup day, just a swipe of tinted lip balms on the lips and you ready to go. Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush is a tinted lip balm from the Baby Lips range. It comes in a red tube packaging which can be twisted.

Berry_Blush_Maybelline_3

The texture is smooth and it glides on the lips well. When applied on the lips, it gives a light red tint which looks a bit shimmery and nice. I usually use them sometimes before using a matte lipstick, they make my lips feel smooth and hydrated. It is not that pigmented though and will need more swipes on pigmented lips.

The Baby Lips range is one of my favourite range. No matter whichever lip balms I keep on purchasing, I get back to this. Berry Crush is definitely my favourite lip balms from Maybelline. What is your favourite Lip Balm??

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

 

 

 

REVIEW- THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION

21 Jun

Hey all,

So finally the rains have hit  the city and the weather is absolutely amazing. I can sit with a cup of coffee and my phone or a book and enjoy the weather all day. But my main concern during the rainy season are my hair and face. My hair becomes limp and face becomes oily. Double Trouble !! To combat my face issues I religiously follow the CTM routine. It really helps me keep my face acne and oil free. Today I would be talking about the M in my CTM routine. That’s the Moisturizer.Do you skip applying your moisturizer?? If yes, start using it twice a day and see the difference in your skin. Today I am going to review a star of my skincare routine and my HG moisturizer which is The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion.

TeaTree_1

ABOUT THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION:-

A lightweight, soothing gel-crème for blemished skin.
• Replenishes moisture overnight
• Leaves skin looking matte
• Antibacterial action
• Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin

Apply this after cleansing and toning your face and massage it gently .

TeaTree_2

MY REVIEW ON THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION:-

I have had acne issues since I was a teenage. Even after having 3 litres of water and maintaining a good diet , pimples use to pop on my face at the most unusual times. That was such an irritating phase. Phewww . Since a few years now thankfully my acne issues have gone. The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade lotion is a light weight and a bit creamy lotion which is white in colour.

TeaTree_3

It comes in a green tube packaging with the pump. I like the packaging because the pump gives out only a lit bit of lotion and so there s no way that it can spill  or get wasted. It is extremely handy and travel friendly. The texture is creamy and has a slight fragrance of Tea tree. I take the lotion on my finger tips and then massage it gently in circular motion on my face. I concentrate more on my cheeks because I have a bit of blemishes there. It gets absorbed in my skin well.

IMG_20160621_1

It hydrates my skin and my skin feels soft and fresh. I have used this since two years now and I am so happy with this. My acne and blemishes have reduced a lot. This is really effective and works well on my skin. The only con about this is the price. I feel it is overpriced. The lotion gets over in about two months. I would still buy it because it really benefits my skin.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Lotion is suitable for blemished or acne prone skin . It is a must have night lotion and is best used with The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash and Toner.
