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.

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.

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.

REVIEW-THE BODY SHOP COCOA BUTTER BODY BUTTER

20 Jun

Hey all,

If you have seen our latest instagram post, I did a haul from The Body Shop. You can join us on Instagram here. We all love that brand and they completed 10 years this year. I so love their products, every penny spent on their products is worth it. My entire skincare routine consists of their products. Let me know if you all would like me to do a skincare routine post. Coming back to today’s review , today I will be reviewing a gem of The Body Shop , which is Cocoa Body Butter.

• 24-hour hydration

bodyshop_2

Available at The Body Shop Stores and you can buy it online here

How to use

Massage into skin. Be generous! It works even better straight after a bath or shower.

My Review on The Body Shop Cocoa Body Butter:-

The Body Shop Cocoa Body Butter comes in a tub packaging which is safe and travel friendly. All the details of the products are mentioned on the back of the tub. On opening the tub, this smells awesome.. The only word I get in my mind when I open is Chocolateeee. Yes it smells some what like chocolate. I am an avid chocolate lover . This body butter has a butter like texture and on application it has to be massaged well so that it absorbs in the skin. It takes a bit of time to get absorbed in the skin.

bodyshop_3

After applying it, the skin feels soft and nourished and the effect stays almost for 12 to 13 hours. It doesn’t need to be applied again and again. This body butter is a must from their range for the dry skin. It is a bit overpriced but they do keep on having discounts and offers on their products. I have just finished half of the tub in the last six months and it will go for the rest of the year.

20160619_165830-1-01

Considering everything, this is a real must have in your skincare routine. Will I the body shop cocoa butter review0repurchase this one?? Well, I would really like to try other variants in the body butter range after this gets over.

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

Enjoyy,

Stay Fit with these Fitness Apps

Stay Fit with these Fitness Apps

Being fit seems to be the priority of every individual in today’s world. We go to gym for a workout , walk about an hour daily and eat healthy.. There’s so much to do for all the fitness freaks. But what about the days you cannot go for a workout or have no time for it or too lazy to do it basically. That’s when technology plays a role. Today I will be listing down my personal favourite fitness apps for you which can be used anywhere and at anytime. These apps can be downloaded on your Smartphone and can be easily used.

You can read my previous post on 5 Books for Weight Loss which may change your perspective here

1) Pedometer

No time for those tedious workouts?? Prefer a walk instead, then this ones for you. This app is my go to app as I use it daily. You can count your steps and monitor your calories burned and the distance covered on this app.You can pause it any point of time and resume it again. It also has basic tabs for resetting the count whenever you want. Totally handy and easy to use…

You can download it on Google Play Store here and on ITunes store here .

2) My Calorie Counter

 

Interesting name?? Isn’t it.. I am a complete foodie and the word calorie is something I never cared about until I really wanted to lose weight. Keeping a track of eating within 1200 calories is difficult. So My Calorie Counter helps me in tracking the calorie count. Initially when you install this app from Google Play store, you have to sign up with some basic details. After logging in, they ask for your basic goal , I wanted to lose weight. It is a very simple and basic app but remembering and updating what I ate the entire day is a bit difficult . So I keep on updating it meal wise. The best part is they give you personalized plan of calorie intake according to your height and weight. So go ahead and install this.. Its a great app..

You can download it on Google Play Store here and on ITunes Store here.

3) FitbitScreenshot_2016-03-17-20-31-00-1
Fitbit is an app which can be used with Fitbit Surge, Charge HR, Charge, Flex, One or Zip tracker with your Android device. You can connect the app with these and track daily goals , exercise regime, manage calories. The best part to stay motivated is to compete with your friends and this app allows you to do that. So its fun using this app always.

4) Nike+ Running
