Using rice flour firms and lightens your skin also it helps in fading sun burns and sun tan, it helps skin from aging, minimizes the pores and keeps skin healthy looking and radiant.

How to Use Rice Flour as a face pack?

There are various ways in which you can make rice flour face packs. I’ve mentioned 2 very effective face packs which have worked really well for me.

Rice flour and lemon face pack


Rice flour + lemon juice

Ingredients: 2 teaspoons of rice flour, pinch of turmeric (optional), 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice.

Method: In a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of rice flour and a pinch of turmeric. Combine both the ingredients and then add 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice to it. Mix it well and then apply the same all over the face and neck. Rinse it off with normal water after 15-20 minutes. Apply moisturizer after washing the face as lemon juice can cause dryness.

You can repeat the process twice a week. The ingredients present in face pack can help fade away the dark spots and make the skin clear and bright.Also we know that lemon juice has vitamin C and aids in clearing blemishes and pigmentation.

Rice flour and aloe vera gel face pack


Rice flour + aloe vera gel

Ingredients: 2 tablespoon of rice flour, 2 teaspoons of fresh aloe vera gel.

Method: In a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of rice flour. Then extract gel from the fresh aloe vera plant and add 2 teaspoons of gel to the bowl (can use any aloe vera gel) mix both the ingredients to form a thick paste. apply the paste on the area of face and neck. Let it dry for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with water. Apply this pack twice  a week. This face pack works best when it comes to making the skin tone even and cleaning the impurities from the skin.This also helps in tightening the skin

You can also choose any of the following ingredients to mix with rice flour for getting a even tone and radiant skin.

  • Cucumber juice (for minimizing pores and improving complexion)
  • Orange juice       (for getting rid of sun tan and grainy skin)
  • Yogurt                  (for purifying skin)
  • Rose water          (for cooling effect and clear skin)
  • Tomato  juice     (for getting rid of sun tan)
  • Milk                     (for firming and controlling aging of skin)

Apply the any of your preferred mask and once dried very gently massage and wash it off. Avoid being harsh this can cause damage to your skin.

Above listed ingredients shouldn’t be applied on cuts or bruises.

Increase Vitamin rich diet to hydrate your skin from the inside.

Do not expect instant results. Apply these packs for at least a month or two for getting desired results.

I’ve got good results by using these remedies.

Share with me your experience if you have used rice flour face pack and if not used definitely try these to achieve a skin that you dream for.

See you soon guys! Take care 🙂

Hello my Fam!! hope you guys are doing  well♥

As we are entering into the winters  the most commonly faced problem  are dry & cracked lips. Choosing a right lip balm for winters is extremely essential. So here i am with a review on Biotique  Bio fruit whitening lip balm for you girls and guys.

I am always in search of a good lip balm which makes lips nourished and healthy looking. while, looking for good lip balms i came across this product the Biotique bio fruit whitening lip balm. I ordered this product  and started to use this lip balm and i am having a good experience with it. Let’s get into the review.


Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm

About Boutique

It is an Ayurvedic recipe  having 100% botanical  extracts. They say “THIS IS NOT A COSMETIC PRODUCT. IT HAS THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES”.


It comes in white colored cute tub with a green cap packaging. It is simple and travel friendly.

Packaging of Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm

Product description

BIO FRUIT Whitening Lip Balm Lightens & evens-out lip tones. Smooth on and around  bare lips, alone or under lipstick.

My take on BIOTIQUE Bio Fruit  whitening lip balm


The Biotique bio fruit whitening lip balm is beeswax based having 68.9% of beeswax which is more than half of composition. Beeswax is a natural wax that locks moisture and keeps lips hydrated  for a longer time. As it consist of beeswax it is a little heavy on lips. Also, because of its thicker consistency a very little amount  of product is required each time. It has a smooth texture and is really good and moisturizing for dry and chapped  lips.


It has an orange color which has a very natural  tint and doesn’t  really  look orange over lips.

IMG20181025193853 (1)

Color of the product


It has a fruit like fragrance, it is not very strong. I personally like lip balms with a mild fragrance, if they are all natural.

My experience

I started  using this lip balm since a month  from now. I like lip balms which are light on lips and not too heavy, Biotique Bio fruit whitening lip balm is a little heavy as I stated because of the beeswax content. I use this product in morning and while going to bed. So the product says it has whitening effects. I didn’t  notice much difference in the color of my lips but, I am loving the nourishment and moisture that it gives to my lips. I apply thick layer of this lip balm before going to bed and get up with  happy and soft lips.

Also, BIOTIQUE being an Advanced Ayurveda brand is natural and absolutely safe to use. It is good to be used as base for lipsticks and also good for men they can apply during the night to get good results.


  • Great base
  • Perfect for daily use
  • Natural lip tint
  • Pocket friendly
  • Travel friendly


  • Would  have been better if had a stick balm than a tub
  • Doesn’t  contain  SPF


3/5 because, it fails to satisfy the only claim of lightening lips

Shelf life 3 years

Price INR 175 for 12gm

Where to purchase from? ,

Will I repurchase it?

No! i’ll search for an even better product.

Hoping you found the review helpful! See you soon, Take care!

DIY Orange Peel Scrub

Hello my friends

We often face severe tan issues, Don’t we??

Not just that the pollution, stress, hormones all affect our body in some or the other way making us look tired, dull & washed out. So today I am here with a simple & a highly effective home remedy for flawless & radiant skin. And when I say highly effective you can trust me on that.What skin problems do we generally face may it be men or women?

Tanning, skin inflammation, dark circles, wrinkles, grainy skin, bumpy texture of skin, what if I say the solutions to all your problems is a fruit? Yes yes a Fruit and that magical fruit is Orange.



Being an excellent source of vitamin C, Oranges can do wonders for your skin. It has diverse benefits not just for skin but for your body too. Here are some of the benefits on oranges

  • vitamin C rich
  • good source of fiber
  • good for kidneys
  • contains collagen
  • improves digestion
  • prevent diabetes
  • anti oxidant rich
  • weight loss
  • boosts immunity
  • improves vision
  • rich in citric acid

There are many more benefits but, today we’ll focus on skin. So consuming oranges is great, we just saw the benefits. Now let’s see how it works on skin. So there are many vitamin C serums for skin available in market which are very expensive. For getting the same benefits at a low cost and in a natural way here is an easy home remedy for you guys.


There are a lot of benefits of oranges, also the peels of oranges have higher content of vitamin c then the fruit itself. So, next time instead of throwing the orange peels you can dry them in sun & grind to prepare a scrub.


Dried orange peels

Sharing with you my way of using these peels & their gains

Collect the Orange peels dry them in sun and once dried, grind them properly.Orange peels have immense amount of vitamin c & Anti oxidants.You can grind the peels & store the powder for many days and use it as a scrub.

How to use??

All you have to do is take 1 tsp of orange peel powder, add 1 tsp of chickpea flour(besan).If you have dry skin add milk or rosewater to the powder scrub and if you have have combination or oily skin just add water to the scrub and it’s ready to use. Alternative to chickpea flour can be rice flour too. Once the mixture is ready apply it on face and body keep it for  10 mins and wash it off scrubbing face in upward direction. You can do this once in a week. Also, it can be used daily instead of a face wash or a cleanser. If you are tired of trying products & creams for acne. I’ll suggest to stop using all the face washes & products.Use this beauty pack as face wash everyday and you will love the change in texture of your skin.


Orange peel powder and chickpea flour


  • It removes tan leaving skin bright and radiant
  • It heals dark circles
  • It is best treatment for grainy skin
  • It is enriched with skin whitening properties.
  • Prevents aging
  • Removes black heads
  • Rejuvenates dull skin

You’ll experience a change in your skin within a week. Regular use of this scrub would make skin flawless and beautiful.

You just need to consider some points

  • Do not apply scrub directly. It has a lot amount of citric acid and can lead to skin irritations. Use it as mentioned by adding to chickpea or rice flour.
  • Store it in an air tight container so that no moisture gets into the scrub.
  • Avoid keeping a spoon in the container
  • Can be used all over body
  • For black heads and dark circles make a thick paste, apply for 10 mins & rinse it off.
  • Gently cleanse your face and body. Do not over scrub.

My experience

DIY’s for skin have always been my favorite. I personally had grainy skin. I regularly used this orange peel powder as a cleanser adding chickpea flour and water(as i have a combination skin type). I felt difference in my skin in just 1 week. My skin texture has improved adding shine to my skin, it prevents acne for me. My pigmentation & scars have literally vanished. This remedy has worked for me beyond my expectations.

So guys and girls give it a try  and share your experience with me.

Feel free to put up your doubts. See you guys, until next time.

Take care!!



Review on Plum green tea alcohol-free toner.

Hello guys Welcome back…

Hope you guys are doing well… So, today I am up with a review on PLUM GREEN TEA ALCOHOL-FREE TONER. Yes a Toner! This review blog is not just for girls but for every one.

Ever since I started taking proper care of my skin, I am consistently following the CTM routine. CTM states cleansing, toning and moisturizing. As we cleanse our face every day it is important that we tone and moisturize it too.

So, what exactly does a toner do?

  • It restores the pH balance of skin
  • It improves the texture of skin
  • Adds an extra protective layer to the skin
  • Shrinks the pores
  • Refreshes the skin
  • Controls oil on skin
  • Prevents acne

So let’s get into the review of PLUM GREEN TEA ALCOHOL-FREE TONER.



Plum is 100% Vegan, it is paraben free, cruelty free and absolutely chemical free, completely mild on skin & above all whatever is mentioned on their products is exactly what it delivers. For people who suffer from acne and oily skin should really invest in good skincare products and Plum is that quality product.

What does Plum green tea alcohol-free toner say?

Plum green tea alcohol free-toner is organic and antioxidant green tea gives you a fresh, taut feeling after use. Minus the dryness and redness that alcohol can bring out.


The Plum green tea alcohol-free toner comes is a cylindrical bottle with a flip flop cap which is handy and attractive in looks, Perfect packaging.



It is watery, transparent and has light fragrance which I feel kicks of stress making skin fresh. I hate products having a strong fragrance unlike plum green tea alcohol free toner that has mild fragrance.


After cleansing face pour a small amount of toner on clean palm and splash on face or can take a cotton pad or a cotton ball to softly dab the toner over your face, giving special attention to the T-zone, forehead, nose and chin areas. Let the toner get into your skin and you are ready to apply a moisturizer.



  • Alcohol, cruelty and paraben free
  • Vegan
  • Antioxidant rich
  • Takes away excess dirt from face
  • Prevents acne
  • Has a mild and fresh fragrance


  • Not suitable for dry skin


I have been using plum green tea toner since a month now it works really well for my skin. I have a combination skin. This product is best for combination, oily and acne-prone skin. I am glad I chose plum. I couldn’t ask for a better toner for my face which is vegan and also paraben free. It makes my skin feel fresh on use and takes dirt away. I have noticed my skin texture improving. Green tea has antioxidants that helps control oil and pimples. I recommend this product to people having a oily and acne-prone skin. Not recommended to ones who have dry skin.

Will I repurchase it?

Yes! I definitely will.


It costs for INR 390 for 200 ml you can order it from &

You can get your hands on them while the discounts are on.



I have had a good experience with Plum skincare share your views and experiences with me and put up queries if any.

See you soon..

Miss Claire soft matte lip cream review & swatches

Hey Lovelies!!

So, here I am today to discuss about the most favorite part of makeup and that’s nothing but LIPSTICKS!!

There are various types of lipsticks matte, glossy, crayons, cream. Today for you sweethearts I’ll be reviewing the MISS CLAIRE SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM. Trust me! These creams are my complete makeup crush. I have 4 shades to discuss and review for you.




It’s not a lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you’ve experienced before. It’s a lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

SHELF LIFE: 12 months




Miss Claire soft matte lip creams come in twist up open plastic packaging. It has a doe foot applicator which helps the lip cream and color to glide smoothly and evenly over the lips. It has the shades mentioned at the base of product. Product is color coded which makes it easy to identify which shade you want to apply. It has a pretty compact packaging which is completely travel friendly.


The texture of these beauties is creamy, non-drying and spreads smoothly. It gives a soft matte look when applied on lips. It is very light and does not feel like you’ve applied anything on lips. For the lip cream to stay for a real long duration apply some lip balm and dab a tissue before applying the cream to take away the excess. Despite being matte these don’t dry up on lips and doesn’t settle into fine lines at all. Light fragrance is an added benefit.


It offers good amount of pigmentation in one pass & if you want complete opaque finish 2 swipes and you are ready to go. It makes your lips look bright and vibrant. They last all day long no matter which ever shade is applied. On eating oily food, the center of lips might get powdery but the rest of the color remains the same. Also the re-application is easy, the extra layers doesn’t make it look uneven or blotchy.


The Miss Claire soft matte lip cream comes in variety of shades from nudes to reds to pink and mauve’s out of which I own 4 shades 55,02,42,50. They do not have names just the numbers but that doesn’t add to any difficulty as they are easily identified by the color coded packaging. Here are the swatches on medium and fair skin tone this will help you choose a suitable shade for yourself.

Shade 02: It is a perfect nude shade for daily use mostly recommended for fair complexion.
