Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream - Review

Hello friends,

Since last month, work has been pretty hectic giving little or no time for my other interests. Results: Dark circles and tired looking eyes.

I normally don’t suffer from under eye darkness. So the advent of a new skin problem made me lose sleep. My friends and family noticed it and started suggesting remedies which only made matters worse.

I have used couple of brightening and moisturizing eye creams in the past but they were not so strong enough for my dark circles. I picked this one up without any thoughts when I went mall hopping with Nisha. As it was priced at a modest Rs. 250/- for 15 g tube, I did not have much expectations over it.

Tips to get the best out of your epilating session

Hello friends,

It has been a while since I wrote such posts. Work has been heavy and hence no time for other activities. Anyways, I am back now and will try to be as regular as possible.

Today’s post is going to be about how to live with using an epilator. Yup you read it right.!

Tips for hair removal using epilator

I hate waxing or visiting salons. Almost 90% of the waxing sessions i tried ended up causing so much pain, redness etc. Some how the universally raved method of hair removal did not suit me. 

Whenever I tell my friends that my preferred method of hair removal is epilating, the most common question is “how can you withstand the pain”. As the quantum of such questions increased, I decided to share some tips which I follow to make the whole process of epilating a smooth and happy journey!

Maybelline New York New Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Maybelline New York New Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Hello friends,

I prefer ready-made eye-makeup removers over oils as they are hassle free and less messy. After my Lakme Bi-Phase one got over, I picked this new fellow from Maybelline.

Maybelline New York New Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

It is designed to be used for removing makeup from our eyes and lips. The formula is similar to the lakme bi-phase one with two liquids of different densities. The oily one settles in the bottom and we need to shake the bottle before you.

Michael Todd True Organics Milk + Honey Firming Mask - Full Review

Hello friends,

You might have read my first impressions post on Michael Todd True Organics Milk and Honey firming Mask here. This will be the complete review of the same.

Michael Todd True Organics Milk and Honey Firming Mask

What the brand has to say about the product:

Are you ready to hear those wonderful words: "Your skin looks so fresh and young. What did you do to get that glow?"

Milk and honey are known to be wholesome and healthy foods. So it makes perfect sense to add the two together for the perfect facial mask. The reason they work so perfectly together is the complimentary benefits they provide for the skin. The milk exfoliates and loosens dead skin cells and dryness from the lactic acid it contains. Honey on the other hand acts as one of the best natural moisturizers there is along with our patent-pending Aloemax juice and other nourishing ingredients like mango and shea butters.

Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Lavender Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream - Review

Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Lavender Moisturizing hand and nail Cream - Review

Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Lavender Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream

I am after hand creams these days. After using couple of creams by Natures Co and The body shop, I got hooked to hand creams. Now I carry a hand cream with in my makeup bag. I love using them after washing my hands.

After my Body Shop vanilla bliss got over, I picked up this one along with a shower gel from Marks and Spencer. 

I picked this up mainly to use it before bed as I love using lavender scented products in my night time bath and skin care routine. I love how the fragrance is so warm, cozy and sleep inducing.

Chambor Intense Nail Color in shade 471- Review & NOTD

Hello girls,

These days I just want to crawl back to my bed and sleep. I feel so tired (read: lazy). I read three novels in a span of two weeks which is quite impressive considering the time I used to spend online.

Anyway, I am back with a Nail polish review after ages. I have chopped my nails off recently. So this is my feel good post in a way.

Chambor Intense Nail Color in shade 471

The polish which I am going to talk about is the Chambor Intense Nail Color in the shade 471. It is a gorgeous rose color with a hint of coral in it. It is my perfect “summer” shade. It looks a little more rose than it is in the pictures.

This is my first chambor nail polish purchase. The formula is very good. I wonder why I did not pick them up before. It is rich, creamy and the finish is gorgeous. Not too glossy and not too matte either.
