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.

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:

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.

Review on Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub..

Hello Fam, hope you are all doing well..

Exfoliation of skin is very important for beautifully smooth and fresh skin and for exfoliation you need good scrubs. You should be very clear while choosing a right scrub for your skin. I am very fond of trying different types of scrubs but I am very choosy too. If you have a sensitive and combination to oily skin type and searching for a good scrub, I am here with a review on Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

Consistency of Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub

My take on FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub:

Well, gel scrubs feel very light and smooth over skin, I always prefer gel based scrubs over cream based scrubs. This pretty gel scrub comes in a transparent tub with a golden screw lid that opens in a circular motion along with that it has a white lid on the inside to avoid spillage of product. The gel in it looks very attractive which has green and brownish particles of the neem leaves and walnut shell. The particles are very mild & not too rough on skin which makes it perfect for delicate skin and is great exfoliating scrub for combination and oily skin type. It has a very natural fragrance of tulsi and neem leaves that stays for a very little while and then fades away. It’s said to  be face and body scrub but honestly I prefer using it only on face because it is very mild which I think won’t work well on body, also a lot amount of scrub will be needed for body which will not go for a long time.

So basically, it is an antibacterial exfoliator which is good for preventing acne and giving a cooling effect and smooth skin. Whenever I use this product it gives me a nice cooling effect and makes my skin feel fresh and soothing. I personally love this product. I use it 2-3 times a week it can be used on alternate days as it is very mild and will not irritate skin. Also on sunny days you can use it by refrigerating to get even more cooling effect.

Pros of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • Natural & light Fragrance
  • Not at all greasy as it is gel based
  • Mild granules which are not at all harsh over skin
  • Perfect for sensitive skin and oily skin
  • Not too expensive considering the quality and quantity

Cons of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • It comes in a tub which can be unhygienic.

Other than that I did not really find any cons.

Availability:

www.nykaa.com , www.amazon.in

Will I repurchase the product?

Yes, I will but I have to try even more products so that I can review them for you guys 😛

So, for now I definitely recommend FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub to you. Use it and let me know your reviews also let me know if you have already used it and revert back if this review was useful for you.

See you until next time and take care .. ❤

Hello girls and guys…

I am here today with another review. A review on The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser. I always wanted to include rice based products into my skin care regimen, I then chose to get hands on The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam. Rice is known to be a natural skin brightener that removes dullness and enhances skin tone. Read on to know if this product really worked for me.

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser

Price: INR 590 for 150 ml.

Product Description

Brightening, deep-foaming cleanser effectively cleanses away makeup as the whipped cream texture gently envelops the skin. Formulated with natural cleansing agents including Rice Extract & Soapwort extract, it leaves skin looking clear and bright.

Application

Lather the cleansing foam with water and massage onto the face with a circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water or with cold water

Packaging

The packaging is quite basic and cute. It comes in a tube and has a flip flop cap. I like the color of the packaging its nice baby pink in color, also the tube is good quality and cap shuts well, so no worries about leakage. Since it’s a Korean product all the information is mentioned in both Korean and English.

Texture

The texture of this cleansing foam is very creamy. It has a thick consistency so a very little amount of product is just enough. It lathers up very well when mixed with water.

Fragrance

This is the best part about this cleansing foam. It has a very mild fragrance which feels refreshing and don’t worry it doesn’t remain once you wash it off.

Color

It has a pearly white color that has some shine. It looks really attractive

Usage and Results

I take a pea sized amount of product and apply it on my dampened face or mix with some water. It produces a rich and creamy lather. It is very soft and takes away all the oil from my face (as i have a combination skin type), feels refreshing and vanishes the impurities from my skin, also brightens up the face post rinsing. I use it as a makeup remover too it is perfect for removing makeup. My skin gets cleansed with all makeup off in one wash and i have experienced my blemishes getting lighter than before. I recommend using a moisturizer straight after using it as it can make your skin feel stretchy post rinsing. The best part of this product is that it goes a long way as only a pea size amount of product is enough for one rinse.

Pros of The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

  • Cleanses the face pretty well.
  • Keeps skin soft.
  • Keeps skin hydrated.
  • Can be used by both men and women.
  • Cleanses makeup super easily.

Rating: 4/5

Will I Repurchase The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam?

Absolutely Yes, This is my second tube and i love this product.

See you Fam until next time! Take care..

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.

IMG20181021163850

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.

THE ORANGE PEEL SCRUB

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.

IMG20181021162221_01

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

Results?

  • 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!!
