Facial Mists – The Bath candy Company

With the warrior Face cleanser ( Review here ) I picked up two Facial mists “Jardin De Aromatique” and “I am Fresh Now”from The Bath candy Company.

Price : Rs. 199/- for each

As fancy as the names sound they are all like the regular toners. They are used as you use any toner and also as a freshening spray.  I thought of writing two different posts but both of them are almost same except for one ingredient.  Oh I forgot, they send you copy of list of ingredients and how to use stuff. And also two scented bath candles as a gift.

Coming to the Products, they both feel the same and smell the same to me. They have this strong Teatree oil scent. They did mention that these are Facial and Body Treatment Mists, helps acne.

Except for the natural and Paraben free, these are no different from the other ones I used so far. The treatment part, I have not used them that long to notice any visible difference.

I love the way I am fresh now Feels on the skin,It does have some minty freshness and if you using the chilled one, this feels like a bit of heaven on your skin.

Jardin De Aromatique is more soothing and best applied in the night as it has lavender oil in i. It helps you calm down and have a better sleep.

Would I recommend?

Yes, Definitely. Why to use chemicals on the face when you can get these natural,cruelty free products on the skin at the same price. These can be used as moisturizers on those lazy days.

4

Company Overview (Took from their Facebook page)

Price : Rs. 250/- ( I got Rs.50/- discount as it was the first order for the product)

This is my first order and much awaited one. I ordered 2 facial mists and one cleanser. Due to not so good courier services here, order took really long to reach me, it took the same time for me to try and review it here.

Warrior is a Charcoal cleanser which can be used both as both cleanser and a Face Pack.With Activated Charcoal in everything these days from the cleansers to the tooth paste, I had to buy this as soon as i saw the charcoal on it. I used it as a pack. Not so appealing, it is a hard and coarse to feel. It is not spread out easily as it is, that is why it is important to add water to make it a paste and spread it easily. It smells like Teatree oil and Multani mitti ( Fullers earth) though it is not on the ingredient list.

2

Take a small amount of the product and add water to make it a paste and apply it on the face . Leave it on for 5- 10 minutes and wash it off. It does leave a black tint on the face if cleaned it off with only water. This black tint can be removed by using a gentle cleanser. I used Besan (Chickpea flour).

1

After Cleansing off, I noticed a cleaner and fresher face.

Skin feels soft and smooth.

They send out a copy of ingredients and the directions on how to use the product in the package.

Love the warrior. I am adding this to my travel kit as it is easy to apply and dries off quickly. It takes max 10 minutes to get clearer and clean skin.

 

Post Threading Care

Well Threading can be painful as it is and if you are prone to get rashes or the bumps then it can be a bit of concern. Threading is considered the most efficient method to get rid of the facial hair. And it is an old and common method of removing facial hair.

threading-upper-lip-hair

More than my eyebrows, I get my upperlip and chin hair removed often. An almost an year ago, I suddenly started getting painful bumps on my skin post threading. I switched to waxing but was facing the same problem. After trying out lot of things to do before and after threading, I’d settled down with these things which I am mentioning below.

  • NEVER scrub your face after threading, this will not just irritate your skin, you will end up bruising it. Always scrub before the threading as it helps the threading easier and helps with the ingrown hair.
  • Do not Exfoliate/Steam your face.
  • Do not touch the skin as the pores will be still open and the dirt gets inside.
  • Do not bleach your face for atleast 24-48 hrs.

What must you do :

  • Try an ice cube or cold compression to avoid redness.
  • You can wipe it off with rosewater. This can help soothing the skin and also close the pores.
  • Aloe vera gel also a good option to apply over the skin.
  • If you are prone to get pimples or bumps, try a soothing face pack. I usually use acne free packs and this one worked as a charm. I make sure I use a face pack and leave my skin bare.

Next time when you go for threading do remember these things. And you know what to do if you like this post. Just click Follow

Easy Summer Facepacks -DIY

Summer is here and so am I. It is my subtle way of saying I am not here much. But I am sure you are going to love this post. I am lazy to even use the store bought facepacks just because It takes time to wash it off. If you are anything like me then this post is for you.

I am sharing 3 face packs with you in this post. So lets get to it.

Papaya face pack  argvwef

Papaya : Do I even have to talk about its benefits both health and beauty. This fruit is easily available these days. You just need a little bit of it and rest you can eat it or put it in your salad. Healthy living I say.:-P . You don’t have to cover the face with a thick layer of papaya pulp, you just need a spoonful of it. Apply on the face and let it dry. Meanwhile you can get to the remaining papaya. You will feel the skin tighten as it dries, wash it off with cold water.

It cleans the pores, removes tan and gives a healthy glow to the skin.

watermelon

Watermelon : Who can forget this during summer? This is our summer staple and this is one of my favorite too. Unlike Papaya, you need not mash it, you can just take a small piece and rub it all over the face. Leave it on till dries and wash it with cold water.

This cools down the skin and removes any dirt from the skin. Once you wash you will see a much cleaner face.

cucumber

Cucumber : Summers and we don’t talk about this?! Cucumber is popularly known for its beauty benefits and lets not get into its health benefits, this post will take forever then. Once used on skin, it removes tan,cleans the pores,cools down the skin, Closes the pores.

  • Take a slice of cucumber and rub it all over the face. Once dried, wash it off.
  • Grate the cucumber and apply it roughly all over the face. Dry it and wash it off with cold water.
  • Grate the cucumber, squeeze the juice and apply this on the skin. Let it dry and wash it off with plain cold water.

Though I prefer the store bought products, these packs are good to use during summers. They feel light on the skin and cools down the skin. Ideally I am sure you can use any fruit on skin. I can bear the smell of these 3 and oranges, but we don’t get oranges now so, these 3 should do for me.

  • They feel light on the skin.
  • Dries off quickly.
  • Cools down the skin.
  • Calms the sun burnt skin.
  • Pore cleansers and closers.
  • Clears the skin
  • Gives Healthy glow.

What more do you need from the face Packs. Go try it out and let me know how you feel.Do leave in the comments your summer facial fruit.

Till the next post take care..mwah.

Bellapierre Ruby Lipstick

I got this from one of the fabbags I ordered couple of months ago.

l1

You Can order your Fab bag here : Click here

This beautiful ruby lipstick from Bellapierre cosmetics has become my favorite red lipstick instantly.

l2

How I like it :

  1. Glides like butter on the lips and even has faint butter scent in it.
  2. Pigmentation is good. Though you need few swipes to get the bold color, if you looking for everyday wear, one swipe is good.
  3. Does not transfer the product.
  4. Has 24 months shell life since opening the product.
  5. Good staying power.
  6. Does not bleed
  7. Does not settle at the creases.
  8. Moisturizes as well.

Till now i don’t have any thing negative to say about it. It looks good on all skin tones.

That’s how it looks on me

Lakme Absolute Precision Liquid Liner

  • Super Long wear
  • Waterproof
  • Ophthalmologically tested

Price : Rs. 450/-

e3

It is a pen like liquid liner which gives more precision while applying. Liquid liners are best to give that dramatic effect or to draw a very thin line, but is not easy to apply. With this liner the tip is like a nib of the pen and you just have to draw however you like it.

How I like it :

e1

I am on the fence with this one.

  1. I like the application part. It is comparatively easy to apply but not so easy as it looks like.
  2. Perfect for winged liners.
  3. Pigmentation is good.
  4. Stays on for almost 2-3 hrs when you are indoors.
  5. If you have dry lids then as the products dries it shrinks the skin, causing a bit of irritation.
  6. Smudge proof

e2

  • The one most important thing I didn’t like is, it is not water proof as it claims, it comes off even a single drop. When You step out into sun or sweat you get the owl eyes. This is a good product if you stay indoors or in air conditioned rooms.

Colorbar Mascara Duo

Colorbar Illusion Mascara Duo

m1

Price : Rs. 450/-

How I like it :

I Curl my lashes but I don’t use mascara much. The most forgotten product in my vanity is Mascara.Till date I have not finished even one bottle. I just replace them every 6-8months. Though not regular  I do like using them every now and then .This time I Picked up a Colorbar one. Lets see how it worked out.

This is a Duo which has both Lengthening and Volumizing mascara, both in the same tube.

m2

  • 2 in 1 mascara black mascara
  • Dries out quickly
  • Easily removable with makeup remover
  • Gives natural finish
  • Not waterproof

m3

Both the wands looks similar, hence the effect looks the same. If both applied on the lashes, it makes lashes look a tad longer. I may not buy it again as i want to try out other products but if you looking for subtle or natural finish this is a good buy.

Lotus Herbals – Night Cream

Youth Rx Anti Ageing Nourishing Night Creme

l2

Price : Rs. 525/-

l3

How I like it :

I bought this recently and wanted to write a review after trying it on. It s been a week since i started using this and it did not disappoint me.

  • Inbetween cream and gel consistency
  • Faintly Fragranted.
  • Soaks in easily.
  • Does not feel heavy on the skin.
  • No break outs.
  • Instantly feels smooth and soft.
  • Controls oil. One thing to mention I wake up to  oil free, smooth skin in the morning.

l4

I somehow had high expectations from this one. Though it didn’t give me great results, it did not disappoint me. Oh, the jar is so pretty. A classic Purple and Gold Combo.

Update : I have stopped using this as it is making me turn a bit darker. I wanted to waive off all the other options to zero it on this. After slowly eliminating all the other products its confirmed that this one is the culprit. 😛

 

Maybelline Fit me Foundation

Matte+Poreless (Normal to oily )

f2

Shade : Warm Honey #322

Price : Rs. 525/-

f3

How I liked it :

Finally i got my hands on this one. Since I gave away my Clinique foundation ( Review ) to a dear friend of mine, i was on hunt for a good foundation. I like light coverage, buildable foundations. I usually use BB creams or tinted moisturisers  but I do like using a foundation. It feels like I have got my canvas ready.  Considering the climate, the foundations which are weightless and does not clogs the pores are really important. I saw rave reviews about Maybelline fit me and thought Will give it a try. And I could not find anywhere at hometown, thought would order online, but was not sure about the shade,and finally, finally, I got a chance to pick up during one of my work travels. Lets get right into it.

f4

How I liked it:

Started a love affair since it touched my face for the first time. I absolutely love it. It is all I was looking for in a foundation and what more I got the exact right shade and that too in my budget.

  • Liquid foundation
  • Blends easily and feels light
  • Light coverage
  • Buildable
  • Matte finish and does not dry out the skin
  • Does not clogs the pores
  • It does what it claims.
  • This is one of those products that i see using it completely.

Super Super happy with this. I definitely recommend this to others. Have you tried this yet? Would love to hear your comments below.

ColorBar Creme Touch Lipstick

Weekend is here!! Happy Weekend. After a long tiring week, weekend is a must thing. You know what? There should be a weekend for every long tiring day. Too much Eh ! 😛 . So How are you all? How was your week ? Mine you must have understood by the excitement of my weekend. Was travelling constantly and am back home now . Summers are even barely started and i am already feeling the heat here. 😦 .What are your weekend plans? Mine is eating a lot of home cooked food. I did a small haul while travelling. Got my Lazy A** out of the bed today to do the reviews. Here s the first one.

Shade : #008 C Classic Mauve

Price : Rs. 475/-

How I like it :

cb1

I already have a Tangerino 015 shade ( Review here ). Though was not too happy with Pigmentation, they glide on lips like butter and keeps them moisturised. First, I went to Inglot, after trying out their lipsticks, i fell in love with the mauve shade. But they didnt have the stock of that shade, so disheartened came out of the store. As I was window shopping, I was generally trying out the shades at their counter, and found this. Lets see,

The creme touch collection are their range of cream lipsticks.

  • Silver Sturdy packaging makes it Travel friendly.
  • A pretty mauve shade for everyday wear.
  • It Glides smoothly on the lips and keeps them moisturised. You can even get the burnt butter kinda smell.
  • Pigmentation is not as great as expected. Needs more than 2 swipes to get the exact shade.
  • Feels light on the lips.
  • Staying power is not more than 2 hours and leaves a tint behind.
  •  SPF 15.

That’s How It looks on me.

cb2

For me, these are more like a tinted lipbalms which feels light and smooth.

Would I buy again?

A different shade Maybe. I was not even planning on picking up this one. But I did, so Never know. Would I recommend? Oh Yes Definitely. A pretty shade at affordable price. I say Go for it. 😀
