My Recent Mini Haul from Himalaya

26 Sep

My Recent Mini Haul from Himalaya

Hey everyone,

I know its been long since I have posted on the blog due to some personal reasons, but I would like to thank you all for supporting and following the blog which in turn reminds me of hosting a giveaway soon.

Recently I got a little skincare stuff from Himalaya. We all know that Himalaya is a natural brand that offers different skincare and body care products. What I really love about them is that they are easy to use, give great results yet on a budget.

So let get on what I bought from the Himalaya store recently-

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

  1. Himalaya Refreshing Cleansing Milk-

This was a repurchase. I like using this when I skin looks extremely tired and dull. Just take a little of it on a cotton swab and clean your face with it and then wash with plain water. You will see how it removes the dirt and oiliness from the skin so effectively.

2.  Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion-

I have used this before and this was a repurchase again. It is a very soft textured cocoa butter lotion and the best part is that it has a mild fragrance. Though it takes a little time to absorb but the skin feels soft after applying it

3. Himalaya Orange Face Scrub-

Honestly I will be using this for the first time. Recently I feel my face has got a bit of tanning so I picked this up. Will definitely review this after using it .

4. Himalaya Orange Peel Off Mask-

I am really fond of  this product and this is my third tube that I have purchased. I had an impression that peel off masks are messy  so I avoided using them, but this changed my entire perception of it . A definite must try. Review coming up soon.

In all , I got these products so that’s a mini haul from Himalaya. Do comment below and let us know what would you like to purchase from this brand.

Enjoy,

Sonal.

Neesh perfumes are one of a kind perfumes because they are cheap but contain very high quality fragrances. They have different types for men and women. The packaging is so damn amazing and cute. These pikpacks can even fit in the pocket and that is so cool.

I got two of them for the review

The first one is Amour De Oud which has a mixture of French Rose , White Lily and Mimosa.It has a woody kind of fragrance.

29 Aug

AVON EXTRA LASTING LIP GLOSS IN ENDLESS WATERMELON- REVIEW AND SWATCH.

Hello there,
I am back with a review on a brand called Avon. Avon has been one of my favourite brand since years because they are affordable and of good quality.
Today I will be reviewing Avon Extra Lasting Lip gloss in the shade Endless Watermelon.

Review on Avon Extra Lasting Lip gloss in the shade Endless Watermelon.

I do not like using lip gloss a lot because I prefer lipsticks.But when I went through the Avon brochure,this lip gloss somehow looked really attractive to me.Lip gloss are used for any look, but for me it would go with a Smokey look.
Coming to this one, the packaging is really simple. It has a normal lip gloss packaging with a black cap and a wand for applying the lip gloss.I find the packaging simple and cute. It is travel friendly and even fits in the pocket. The wand helps to remove a proper quantity of the gloss and so it wont get wasted
or wont spill.

Talking about the texture and colour, the shade Endless Watermelon is a peachy golden gloss with shimmer.I really like the fact that it is pigmented and would give a smooth look on the lips. After applying it does feel a little bit heavy on lips, but that stays only for a bit of time.This colour can be used either on top of a lipstick or just the lip gloss. I like using this for my night look paired with a black Smokey look. The texture is quite moisturizing and smooth to use, so you might not need a lip balm for this.

IMG_20160829_113101-01-01

The staying power is really good as it stays for a longer time.It has a slight fragrance but that doesn’t linger for a long time.I like this shade a lot but I would like to try other shades too.The most important thing is that to buy Avon products can be bought only through their representatives which sometimes can be tedious to find.But for the price it offers, it is a really nice lip gloss and Avon generally has discounts every month on their products,so you might get them at a reasonable price.

In all, this lip gloss is an affordable one and if you like such type of lip shades you can go for it. I would skip it and try other shades.

Have you used any lip gloss from this range?? What do you think about this??  It would be great if you would comment below and share your favourites.

Enjoyy,

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN PRAGUE – REVIEW AND SWATCH

22 Aug

Hey all,

NYX cosmetics has recently launched in India and is the talk of the town currently. Initially this brand was available on international sites or in Sephora but luckily they are now accessible through Nykaa.com. Isn’t that great?? This brand has good quality makeup stuff with many shades and varieties.

If you have been following our blog, I have already reviewed one of NYX soft matte lip cream in San Paulo , you can check the review here. Today I am going to review another shade from the matte lip cream range called Prague.

The names of these lip shades sound so classy . I am really fond of this range and so after searching for a shade for my skin tone, I chose Prague. Lets see how well it suits me??

IMG_8929-01

About NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:-

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy colour and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite.

Price–  Rs 600.

IMG_8945-01-01

Availability– Available on Nykaa.com.

IMG_8942-01-01

My Review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:

IMG_8946-01 (1)

 

NYX Prague is one of the best shades I have ever used . Though they have many awesome shades, I always like to try shades which are similar to  pink, berry and red. It comes in a normal lip gloss kind of packaging and has a black colour cap on it.

It is a nice berry shade with a hint of pink and I am sure it will be a hit with the Indian skin tones. On application, the colour glides on smoothly and looks perfect on exfoliated lips. It is anytime better to exfoliate your lips, apply a lip balm, wipe the lip balm with a tissue and then apply this lip colour. As this is a matte lip cream, it is advisable to do the above step or else it can settle in fine lines and make them visible.

After applying this lip colour, it feels very light and stays for a longer time. I really like lip colours which stay for a longer time . Talking about the price , I feel its really affordable and it can be used for a longer time

IMG_20160822_112409-01

So , I would highly recommend this one for people who want to try something in berry shade. You will really like this one.

Let me know how you like this one and do follow us on Facebook and Instagram for further updates

Enjoyy,

THE BODY SHOP FUJI GREEN TEA BODY LOTION REVIEW

20 Aug

 

Hey there,

If you have been following my blog lately, I had put a blog post on The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash . Now this range in particular is one of the best ranges. They smell so good and are good to use. I did mention in my previous post about using the body wash and body lotion together. So lets see whether it proves effective than any other lotion.

IMG_8924-01-01

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.

IMG_20160820_185416-01 (1)

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,

Sonal.
