After blending NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand

My Experience with NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand:

Nykaa has done a brilliant job by introducing this foundation as they are color adapting foundations and hence called as Skin genius. So starting with the shade range I feel that Nykaa should have focused more on their shade range as there are variety of Indian skin tones and 5 shades are just not enough.

The foundation has a weightless texture and a semi liquid consistency which seamlessly blends the foundation into the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid and polylift which makes it work better for sahara desert like dry skin. It has a dewy finish that adds a glow to skin and doesn’t give a patchy look for sure. I have a medium skin tone and i got my hands on 03 Warm sand. As this foundation is color adapting it adjusts to my skin within like 5-7 minutes. Since it has hyaluronic acid in it, the foundation is hydrating and feels light. It has a sheer to medium coverage which is good option if you use a foundation everyday, it gives a healthy glow to skin and feels so light like you have just applied a moisturizer to your skin. It hides light spots but if you have an extremely pigmented skin using a corrector or a concealer is recommended. I am not more of a foundation person but i really love how it works on my skin. I love more of dewy makeup than extremely matte one so the ones who feel the same surely give it a try and to beauties having combination to oily skin type will need a setting powder to avoid oil on face, I apply a compact powder or White tone powder to set the foundation under my eyes and T zone. 03 Warm sand is perfect for medium skin tone. It stays entire day without melting or creasing and that makes me a fan of this product.

IMG20190113154540

NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand as Base

If you have a medium deep skin tone and if buy this shade 03 don’t worry it will definitely adapt to your skin just give it some time to settle down. I have tried this same shade on my friends having a shade lighter and a shade deeper than my skin tone and it works.

Overall, NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation is a perfect daily wear foundation. If you are confused of which foundation to go for or you are a beginner into makeup definitely give it a try. Also if you are confused of which shade to buy, try the foundation in your nearby Nykaa stores.

Pros of NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand:

  • Weightless formula
  • Color Adapting property
  • Contains hyaluronic acid
  • Natural & radiant finish
  • Even outs skin tone
  • Dewy finish
  • Travel friendly
  • Stays well for a long time
  • Good quality packaging
  • Little goes a long way
  • Good for daily use

Cons of NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand:

  • Very few shade range

How To Get Rid Of Pimples??

Hey Fam Welcome back.. today i’ll be discussing with you guys how to get rid of pimples..

The over production of oil, clogged pores and the growth of bacteria in the hair follicles causes pimples and the even worse condition of these increasing pimples is what acne means. Alteration in hormones is one such very common reason for acne, pollution, bad food habits, lack of hydration, dandruff, stress are the most common reasons causing pimples and acne.

Nowadays a lot of people face these issues may it be men or women so the natural ways of preventing acne & pimples are..

  • Stay Hydrated:

Drinking a good amount of water is very important for your skin to be healthy and clear. One must drink at least 12 glasses of water a day.

  • Eat Healthy:

We all know by now how important it is to eat healthy. Eat more of fruits and salads, consuming salads and fruits prior lunch and dinner helps digestion to boost, keeping you & your skin healthy and glowing.

  •   Cleanse Face Properly:

Cleanse your face 2-3 times a day with mild cleansers mostly tea tree, green tea or ones having key ingredient as neem leaves

  • Moisturize Skin Well:

Even if you have an extremely Oily skin type, do not forget to use a moisturizer. Use non-comedogenic  moisturizer that means it won’t clog pores. (Neutrogena, Cetaphil)

  • Use a Separate Towel for Face:

If you are having severe acne problem you should definitely use separate towel for face and body. Also, keep changing your pillow covers so that your skin does not get in contact with dirt that triggers acne.

WHAT IF YOU ARE ALREADY HAVING THOSE PIMPLES AND ACNE?

Many of you guys have asked me of how to get rid of these pimples saying ” I’m fed up trying home remedies and nothing works, it makes me look ugly, i hate my skin, what do i do now?”

All i have to say is STOP! YES STOP BOTHERING YOURSELF & YOUR SKIN! There is solution to everything out there and one such amazing solution is using TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL + ALOE VERA GEL

TEA TREE OIL:

Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic essential oil especially for oily, acne-prone skin and is considered the best remedy for acne. It destroys the acne causing bacteria in the hair follicles that reduces breakouts. You can use Tea Tree essential oil of brands like Nykaa, Good Vibes, Aroma treasures.

ALOE VERA GEL:

There are multiple benefits of Aloe Vera gel for skin, hair and body. It contains anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties and is effective for treating acne and scars.

Ingredients of L’Oreal Paris 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza

My take on L’Oreal Paris 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza:

I am more of a mascara person than of an eyeliner one but i tell you girls this is the best eye liner among all the previous ones I’ve used. I always prefer gel eyeliner over pen eye liners because they are very easy for application and the quantity of application can be adjusted as per need and i love that. Firstly pigment of the product.. it has an amazing pigment and it has a buttery texture and has a smooth satin finish, there is a brush that comes along. I love quality of the brush it also has a plastic tiny cover for hygiene purpose, it is soft and you can literally paint your eyelids in different styles by using it. The product is water proof, smudge proof and literally stays all day long. I also use it as a kajal, any kajal that i apply easily smudges no matter which brand it is but hands down i love this eye liner to be applied as a kajal it doesn’t smudge at all and gives that super amazing eye look all day long and it dries up super quick so no mess at all. I totally trust and adore this tiny product. Overall it offers a clean look when applied. I give it a 10/10.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review..

Heyya my people ❤  HAPPY NEW YEAR, It’s been a long time since i have posted a blog now. This is my first  review blog post of 2019 and it definitely had to be about my favorite part of skin care and that is face mask ❤

I totally love clay masks and nothing can beat Innisfree when it comes to face masks or clay masks. I have already done a review on jeju volcanic color clay masks from innisfree & you can check it out over here “ https://ravishinglyradiant.wordpress.com/2018/11/17/innisfree-jeju-volcanic-color-clay-mask-review/?customize_changeset_uuid=bd3e3aa9-22ec-423a-9d14-ec876c492d30  “

Today I am reviewing one of their most hyped clay masks and that is the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Product Description:

This 10-in-1 clay mask by Innisfree is formulated with Jeju Volcanic Cluster Sphere that features twice more powerful adherence to sebum for intensive pore care.

Color and Texture of
Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

My take on Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is one of the best-selling products of Innisfree and I heard a lot about this one so, thought of giving it a try. The product is a grey colored clay mask, and has a very thick texture not too creamy.  I spray on some water on my face and evenly apply it over my face. As I said it is not too creamy it doesn’t spread evenly and also its starts drying soon. It takes around 6-7 minutes to completely dry up, doesn’t feel stretchy and it kind of has herbal fragrance. I use it once a week for 15 mins and wash it off with water. It definitely controls the oil on my face until the next day, also it helps shrink the appearance of pores. The product claims to remove blackheads but sadly it doesn’t work on black heads at all. What I love about Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is that it leaves my skin with a healthy glow right after i use it.

If you have Oily and combination skin type and not having too much concern about blackheads you can go for this product and I do not recommend it to people having dry skin.

Overall rating: 4/5

Pros of  Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

  • Control oil
  • Tighten pores
  • Controls sebum
  • Boosts  healthy glow
  • Leaves skin softer
  • Travel friendly

Cons of Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

  • Doesn’t remove black heads
  • Expensive

This is it for today. Hope this review is helpful for you guys. Do share your reviews if you have already used the Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask and also feel free to put up your doubts.

See you until next time and take care. Lots of love ❤

Texture of  Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel by Fuschia VKARE

My take on Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel by Fuschia VKARE:

Firstly when read the ingredients I was like woahh I am definitely using this. Yes! They have this all natural and beneficial ingredients aqua & aloe vera that are great for hydration and soothing skin, vitamin E & spearmint oil are antioxidant rich (reduces the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections such as discoloration), lemongrass oil is an antiseptic and also antidepressant, eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil have anti-inflammatory & antiseptic properties and lastly tea tree oil which the best essential oil for acne prone skin.

I use this product thrice a week at night for 15-20 minutes and rinse it off. The most amazing benefit that it gives me is cool and calming effect to my skin and I really sleep peacefully. This face gel takes away excess oil and dirt from my skin and I have seen my dark spots lighten since I have added it to my skincare also it prevents acne 100% and I am so happy with this. Lemongrass oil is a dominating ingredient in this face gel as it has a strong fragrance of lemongrass and when I apply the face gel it gives me a tingling sensation for the first 30 seconds but that is surely because of the blend of all oils. Over all I feel my skin loves this product and I am happy I received it in my Fabbag.

  • Not tested on animals
  • Lightens dark spots
  • Cooling and calming effect
  • Removes dirt and excess oil from skin

Cons of Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel:

  • It has a strong fragrance
  • Little expensive (but totally worth it)

Other than that I did not really find any cons.

Yes!! It is a great product for combination and oily skin types..

See you until next time and take care lots of love ❤

D.I.Y. Hair Mask for Healthy, Shiny & Frizz free hair..

Hello guys… Welcome back!!

Some of the members of my Instagram family asked me DIY remedies for hair. It’s winters and most of us are facing dry hair, dandruff & hair fall already. I know it’s been a while since you guys have asked me for DIY remedies for hair but yes, it’s definitely because i try remedies myself before suggesting them to you. So today I am sharing an amazing recipe for your hair that will without any doubt cut off the frizz, add shine to hair and if used regularly can help in getting rid of dandruff and boost hair growth. So without any further ado let’s get started 🙂

Ingredients: All you need is Green tea, Honey, Yogurt and any carrier oil (I have used coconut oil)

How is it useful for hair?

Green tea is rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols promotes hair growth, strengthens the roots and reduces hair fall. It is Anti-inflammatory in nature which helps in getting rid of dry scalp, has anti-oxidants that is great for cleansing of scalp and reducing dandruff.

Yogurt repairs damaged hair, handles frizz, reduces dandruff as it has anti-fungal properties and adds shine leaving hair smooth and silky.

Honey has great moisturizing properties that help in conditioning of hair and adds shine to dull hair.

Coconut oil helps in reducing breakage of hair, prevents hair fall and nourishes scalp.

How to make the mixture?

  • Take 2-3 teaspoons of Green tea grind it in a grinder.

IMG20181204153953.jpg

DIY hair pack

How to use?

Apply the hair pack from roots to tips with fingers also massage well onto scalp. Let the moisture and the benefits of all the magical ingredients seep into the scalp for amazing results. Don’t forget to apply the hair pack to the ends of the hair that will help in reducing split ends. Once you are done applying the hair pack cover it with a shower cap and let the warmth help treat your hair and scalp from within. Keep it for 1 to 1.5 hours and wash it off with luke warm water. You can also use a mild hair cleanser to wash off the hair pack well. I did not use any conditioner onto my hair as I wanted to see how my hair feels on using this remedy.

My experience:

On using this hair pack my hair felt so smooth and silky. My hair was frizz free and had a shine to my hair. I never focused much on DIY remedies for hair but I have now decided to take some time for myself and use variety of remedies and share the best of them with you.

So guys surely give this remedy a try and let me know how it works for you!!

Texture & Fragrance: It has a creamy texture, looks buttery and it is has a strong fragrance of Clove oil.

 

 

My take on the product:

I bought this foot cream just to give it a try without expecting a lot from it. But it proved me wrong, it actually worked for me. I use it twice a day in the morning after bath and at night before I go to bed. I have always had very dry feet and I have been super lazy to moisturize them. On using this foot cream, within 2 weeks I have seen noticeable changes. It definitely nourishes my feet, the the dark patches have lightened. Now i have added it in my night care routine, I wear socks at night to give my feet the warmth letting these herbal ingredients do their magic and get up having happy feet yeaahh! My Mom uses it for her cracked heels and it has really helped to heal those cracks. It is very affordable product and the best part of it is that it’s herbal. I love this cute little product and I am going to buy it over and over again.

Plum is an amazing brand which is  natural and contains environment-friendly ingredients.

Ingredients of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

They have these amazing ingredients which have multiple benefits for a healthy looking skin.

Packaging of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

The packaging of this night cream looks beautiful. This night cream comes in a glass tub and has a plastic screw lid. As it has a glass packaging it becomes heavy to carry along so not a travel friendly option. The glass is of a very good quality but after all it is glass and definitely it can break if it slips off from your hands. So the packaging could have been better.

Texture of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

It is a little bit on thicker side and is creamy white in color. Glides on smoothly and you need just a little amount of it on your skin.

Fragrance of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

It has a nice fragrance, not too light not too strong. I like the fragrance of the product.

How to use?

Cleanse your face with a good cleanser, take a pea sized amount of product and dot it on your face and neck, massage gently into your skin until it absorbs (absorbs real quick) and let it stay overnight.

 

 

My take on Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

So, I am using this product since a long time now. It helps soften my skin for sure but the cream is thick and it doesn’t let me forget it’s existence on my skin. Now that I have already got my hands on this I decided to try how it works, so I personally did not find any great effects on my skin but it does hydrates my skin to a great extent. The night cream get absorbed easily but I still feel something on my skin. It works for me just the way any other good hydrating moisturizer would work. I love using plum skincare so, no hate towards the brand but the product could have really been better and Yes it definitely doesn’t have any side effects on my skin.

Pros of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

  • 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
  • Paraben free.
  • It is easy to apply.
  • No side effects.

Cons of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

  • Packaging is not travel friendly.
  • Heavy on skin.

Will I repurchase it?

Well, No I will not.  This can be a good option for people with extremely dry skin as it is a good moisturizing night cream. I have a combination skin type and it doesn’t work for me. So, not recommended to combination and oily skin types.

Ratings: 3.5/5

See you soon guys. Lots of love to you ❤ Take care 🙂

 What are the steps of facial?

  • Cleansing
  • Exfoliating
  • Steaming
  • Toning
  • Moisturizing

So we are going to include all these steps in our facial and get a super supple and glowing skin. Let’s get started.

  1. Cleansing

For cleansing we need fresh AloeVera gel and a lemon. Yes cleansing skin is this easy! Take 2 teaspoons of AloeVera gel and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and few drops of rose water to it. Mix it well and massage it on clean face.  Massage well in circular motion to let the goodness of it absorb into your skin. Let it just be for 5 minutes and wipe it off with a clean wet towel or a wet cotton ball.

  1. Exfoliating

While doing facial it is extremely important to exfoliate your skin to get rid of all the dead skin cell on your skin and for that we need is AloeVera and Rice flour. Put some rice flour on to the AloeVera and scrub it onto face and if you are using AloeVera gel mix the rice flour to it and use. Rice flour helps in brightening skin and can be used as a mild scrub for sensitive skin. Scrub gently for 2-3 minutes. And let it stay it on your skin while you do the next step Steaming.

  1. Steaming

So guys this is an optional step. There are many people who are not comfortable with steaming. So if you skip this step wipe your face with wet towel when done with exfoliating.

  1. Toning

After scrubbing my face I like to use a toner and a very mild toner is Rose water. So, you can just spray some rose water after Exfoliating also you can make a toner using AloeVera gel and rose water.

IMG20181120143813

AloeVera gel and rose water

  1. Moisturizing

The last and the most important step is moisturizing. For that you need 1 Vitamin E capsule. Take some AloeVera gel add in 1 Vitamin E capsule to it and mix it well. Apply it on face and leave it on for good 30 minutes. Vitamin E oil is sticky and can make your skin feel oily but it nourishes your skin a lot and helps you give a soft, supple and moisturized skin. Wash it off with luke warm water after 30 minutes.

IMG20181120143004

The remaining extracted AloeVera gel i store it in refrigerator for like 3-4 days and apply it every night.

IMG20181120150251

Fresh AloeVera gel

How often should this facial be done?

You can do this facial once in 15 days.  I also recommend applying fresh AloeVera gel every night to keep skin nourished, irritation free, soft and glowing. Also with regular use of AloeVera gel you can find your skin to be spotless and youthful. Also remember this is not going to happen overnight. Regular use will definitely give you best results.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Review..

Hello my beautiful people.. ❤

I am back with a review of one of my favorite skincare brands.. INNISFREE ❤

INNISFREE, is a 100% natural beauty brand from Korea. It shares the benefits of nature from the pristine island of Jeju, allowing for vibrant beauty and pursues an eco-friendly green life to preserve the balance of nature. Innisfree offers a variety of skincare products. There are many clay masks available for different concerns for all skin types. Also this article is both for men and women.

The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Review (Brightening, Cica, Purifying)

IMG20181115133825.jpg

Innisfree jeju volcanic color clay mask from left CICA, PURIFYING, BRIGHTENING

Price: INR 700 for 70 ml of product.

Availability: http://www.nykaa.com, http://www.innisfree.com

These color clay masks basically come in 7 different variants addressing different skin concerns. Innisfree I feel is a very trusted brand when it comes to skincare.

These color clay masks are all made with Jeju volcanic scoria, which is Jeju’s natural volcanic cluster, and provides stronger sebum control and absorption.The powerful sebum control effect of Jeju volcanic cluster provides clean pore care. I’ve bought these products a few months ago before even making a choice of blogging. We’ll that’s the reason i have no cartons of the products, never mind i shall specify every fine detail of the products so keep going ❤

Yes, as i said these colors clay masks come in 7 variants being

Yellow (Brightening): Contains Vitamin C derivative, to brighten the skin and control sebum. Gives a Brightening effect on skin, leaving skin radiant and fresh.

 

 

Blue (hydrating): Contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin and control sebum. Hyaluronic acid works amazing on every skin type.

 

Pink (vitalizing): Contains pomegranate seed oil that revitalizes the skin leaving it fresh and beautiful.

 

Green (cica): Contains madecassoside to control blemishes and sebum also prevents acne also it calms irritated skin.

 

Purple (calming): Contains panthenol to calm or soothe the skin and control sebum.

 

White (refining): Contains sea salt to soften the texture of skin and control sebum.

 

Black (purifying): Contains mud to purify the skin and control sebum.

Getting into the review of the masks that I have used the Yellow (brightening), Green (cica), Black (purifying)  masks. So the yellow and the green masks are water-gel clay masks, it means they are light weight and easily glides on skin and are rich in moisture and can be washed off easily with water without much foam, whereas the Black mask is transforming clay masks which means they do not fully dry onto the skin and once water is added while washing the mask it turns into foamy lather that cleanses skin from within. I ordered the Brightening and Cica variants of the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay masks and I got a sample of Purifying Clay mask (black) free. What I love the most about Innisfree is that they always arrange cute and tiny trial packs for their customers.

 

 

How to Use: 

After cleansing face with a cleanser pat dry your face and apply appropriate amount of the mask on your dry face avoiding the eye area. After 5-10 minutes, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Its recommend to use the clay masks 1-2 times per week. You can also do multi-masking with different variants to combat different skin concerns at the same time.

The Purifying mask should be applied on to the T-zone and the chin area, It helps to control oil and cleans the pores from within. The Cica mask should be applied on the acne prone areas of your skin (I have acne prone skin on my cheeks) and the Brightening mask must be applied where you want your skin to look bright (when multi-masking I apply it on the face and neck leaving the T-zone and cheeks).

This mask is absolutely gentle on my skin, it’s not too thick that’s the reason it glides smoothly and quickly, dries within 10 minutes. Mask can be washed off very easily. Regular masks often leave skin feeling dry and stretchy post wash but this product leaves skin smooth and radiant. As the name says Brightening, my skin feels bright after i wash the mask off, but not for a longer time. So i prefer it for instant brightness. It doesn’t cause any kind of irritation of skin its perfect for sensitive skin too. I love the results this product gives me and i feel if you use this product every alternate days it will definitely help to boost up your skintone. I love Innisfree color clay Brightening mask and i recommend it if you are fond of soft and bright skin.

Rating 4/5 (-1 because iwish it offered brightness for a longer period of time.)

Green (Cica)

This mask has a slightly thick texture than the brightening one, but no worries this glides on easily too. I don’t have a very acne prone skin but due to combination skin type i get some of them on my cheek area. On using this mask on my cheeks, i noticed that the oil on my face gets controlled and maybe that is helping me prevent acne. I also recommended it to one of my friend to try this mask. She has an extremely oily and acne prone skin and she noticed change in her skin just in 2 weeks.So if you have acne problems this product is just for you.

Black (purifying)

As i stated earlier, the Purifying mask is a transforming clay mask. It has a slightly thick texture like the Cica mask. It takes a while to dry completely. This product deeply cleanses the pores if you have any and also brightens face. I apply it on my t zone and chin area. When washing it off it turns into foamy lather cleaning up all the dirt from my skin. I feel so refreshed after using this product. My T-zone literally shines and i absolutely love the result it gives me. This is the best according to me from the variants that I’ve used. Highly highly recommend. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

Rating: 5/5

Best of the 3 variants:

Without any doubt Black (Purifying)

So Guys, thats how these pretty clay masks worked for me.. share your views with me if you have already used them, or the different variants. See you guys, take care 🙂
