Favorite body wash from “Bath & body works”, for him as well!

Hello my friends !

“Bath and body works” store is all about fragrance! As soon as I enter, I totally lose control over myself!!.. I literally want to smell every product present in the store and yes including Men’s collection too… Eventually got my hands on it!

And fun part is, not only during Christmas but whenever I go to mall, part of me always want to see what’s new in store. It is so exciting task!! yay!…. but everything glitters ain’t gold likewise every fragrance can not be pleasant…..so exceptions are always there as sometimes I think some of them have very overpowering fragrance and it gives me an instant headache!!

I can not buy everything at once(of course not ) but it is a gradual process of trying out products that feel good and love throughout a year. So this post is all about sharing my take on these fragrance full products.

“Into the night” from Woman’s collection

Such a romantic name ….wow! Just love it!….. Ok about this one… I have a very special thing about it… because I have tried their couple of body wash fragrances and I always come back to this….they have such a huge collection of body wash and body cream…but I found creams are not that moisturizing as they claim…I mean I even tried a few of them… apparently, their creams do not do any wonder…no at least not for me! however, I keep hand cream which comes in a small tube and very handy! Anyway, Let’s not deviate from the topic…So come back…(He hehe )…I always enjoy taking shower when I see my best body wash in the bathroom caddy. Their all moisturizing body wash products are super creamy with a rich lather. The fragrance is very feminine and it has been described as a “blend of dark berries, midnight jasmine & rich amber”. So if you wish grab one or gift one!

Key ingredients – Infused with shea butter, coconut oil & cocoa butter.

Price – $13.50 (USD) for 10 fl/oz

3-in-1 hair, body wash from men’s collection

Amazing fragrance and little goes a long way…absolutely stunning. My hubby loves this collection. But don’t go overboard with it..you might get a feeling as if used whole bottle in one wash…yeah! It is very strong. So “Forest” has been described as “A crisp blend of bergamot, sage & crushed cedarwood” so marvelous fragrance. “Ocean” is “An invigorating blend of blue cypress, vetiver & coastal air”.Both are super refreshing. Even though it says 3-in-1, I am not sure if you can use it for hair and face so the choice is yours. Everybody’s opinion on this would be different so see what suits you best!

Key ingredients – Vitamin E, shea butter and aloe.

Price – $14.50 (USD) for 10 fl/oz

These products are super fun to try and at the same time very wonderful to gift somebody. I am sure he/she is going to adore it. I would give it 5 stars and yes! would recommend to friend & family !

Lancôme ROSE SORBET CRYO-MASK $39(USD). Does it really work?

Hello Guys!!!

How are you all? Hopefully, everything is going great at your end… Today I am here to review a very unique Cryo- mask by Lancôme so “1..2..3… eyes on me.”!!

This time I wanted to try something to get rid of enlarged pores which are not that large but when I see my face is going through some really bad acne (breakout) from past three/four months and kind of leaves unwanted nasty black spots followed with some pores, as a result, skin does not look smooth as it was before. Irrespective of skin color, everybody wants that flawless canvas and radiant face …. So me striving to get my skin better and to minimize the appearance of pores.

They say(Lancome), its pore minimizer and glow booster…so let’s see what it is!! I am going to write my honest review and experience after using this mask for about 1 month! Again it varies from person to person so no hard feelings! 

Let’s see what is it? Why Lancôme invented this Sorbet cryo-mask.

A five-minute cooling face mask that instantly re-energizes skin and reveals a rosy glow as it works to tighten pores, smooth skin texture and even skin tone. stated by Lancôme on its website.

When to use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Prepare 3.Active 4.treat(Apply mask) 5.Target

How to Apply? Apply the face mask by gently patting a generous layer on a clean face.After 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water.

How I use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Apply this mask 3.Toner 4.Serum 5.Moisturizer and final step, I use my acne spot treatment cream. I am not sure if this is the correct method to use this mask. But I suppose it should so I continue the way I like it instead of scratching my head and think about what they say. However, I strongly think the end result should be the same.

It has been over a month now since I have started using the product and I can see that mask is becoming my best buddy. Why? because it gives that extraordinary cooling effect on the skin..just calm, relaxing and soothing!!! It has a wonderful rosy smell, not overpowering which I love the most… Sometimes I just open the jar to inhale the rosy scent….quickly freshen up my mood n mind. 

It is actually a decent, very different product that gives instant freshness and glow!!!! Yes! the unique formula makes it a very special mask …so its texture! It is a pink sorbet with a matte finish. You can check the texture below.

But at the same time, I doubt it works as a pore tightening mask, apart from its mind-blowing texture and scent! For me…it does not do its job of minimizing pores!! I did not see any improvements instead when I remove it, I feel my skin has some kind of rawness as if a layer or film has built up on face… It does not feel hydrated or for that matter moisturized!!! I get it, its mattifying mask but then it fails to serve its purpose and does not make skin smooth & supple.

For me, after using this mask for 4 weeks…It did not change my skin texture, with no significant changes. I am not at all happy with this mask except for its cooling effect which is the best part and I enjoy it…and yes I would see if I can get this product at discounted price so that I can use it as a cooling mask to calm down my irritated skin caused by acne. Otherwise, it works like any other drug store mask. Before you buy, make sure you try a sample or trial size pack. I would not recommend it to my friends who are looking for a serious pore-minimizer/tightening mask.

I would give it 2 stars!

Face Scrubs – Save or Splurge! St.Ives vs Clinique!

Mesmerizing brand advertisement with fully edited model’s face by skillful graphics designer….lol !!! very first question we ask ourselves, save or splurge? Big logos & fancy keywords look so promising that we almost convince ourselves to make a purchase. Having said that,it’s all about hit or miss!

Today, I picked up a face scrub to review. A very simple product & necessary step to complete our skincare routine. Just to let you know that I have combination skin with oily T-zone and usually not very sensitive.

Start from left Clinique pep-start exfoliating cleanser and St.Ives oatmeal scrub & mask

St. Ives Smooth Oatmeal Scrub & Mask 

Oatmeal is a self-explanatory word. Instantly indicates a very soothing and calming ingredient for the skin. It is such great a gentle exfoliating scrub available in the market, efficiently removes all the dirt & residual grime after removing makeup or cleansing face. I am so obsessed with this one and do not want to go for any other scrubs. It contains a very tiny and tender walnut shell granules, feels so soft yet strong enough to buff away dead skin cells. The best part is, you can use it as a mask as well to add on extra care towards your beauty goals. I prefer to use it on the cleansed face leaving some dampness to it then massaging it in a circular motion for a minute or so.

  • Best natural exfoliating scrub for all skin types. It instantly provides softness and nourishment after first use. Ready to see your healthy & glowing face with every wash. Does not dry your skin at all.
  • Just need a dime size to scrub & massage the face. It’s a paraben-free & oil-free. Non-comedogenic.
  • It is 2-in-1 oatmeal scrub and mask which makes it extraordinary. The results are stunning. Use it 2 to 3 times a week depending upon your skin type.
  • It is unscented so no to worry about it.
  • Its retail price varies between $4.50 to $6.00 (US Dollars).
  • It is recommendable, so affordable, and must try scrub. Giving it 5 stars for its outstanding work and it’s a cruelty-free.

Clinique Pep-Start™ 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

Here we go!!!! Clinique is a very well known brand for all of us. I have always loved their products especially their moisture surge skincare line. I just love it. I am enchanted by them.

Clinique 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser is a gel cleanser and a scrub mixed together. Gel gets its job done of cleansing the face efficiently with the help of small exfoliating granules. It is a very powerful and time-saving formula, especially when running short of time. But my take on this product is little deviated comparing to what it is explained on the clinique website.

  • It is 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser and exfoliator.
  • Just need a small amount of product, lather it up and massage onto damp skin. The recipe is great enough to take away dirt, impurities, and dead skin cells.
  • Apart from giving a nice glow, the formula is too drying as if it has sucked every bit of oil out of your face. It leaves skin with stretchy feeling and craves for moisturizer.
  • Not at all recommendable for dry skin types.
  • Red alert for a group of sensitive people as it tends to leave dry patches and can cause irritation.
  • Its retails price is $19.50 (US Dollars)
  • Results are not satisfying (at least in my case) and wish Clinique change the formula in the future so giving it 3 Stars.

GINZING Refreshing Eye Cream To Brighten And Depuff

Hello my beautiful friends !

And they say “Love is when you look into someone’s eyes and see everything you need” but what if eyes are dull, dry and puffy with unwanted dark circles …He he he !!!! no more laughs..It was said in jest so don’t get serious !!!!!!. Anyway, this is so true our eyes are very important part of our body yet sometimes we ignore it. In fact I started taking care of it just couple of years ago. Oh! I was so insane and I definitely owe an apology to my eyes!!!!

Just like our skin , eyes also need a continuous supply of hydration and so they invented an eye creams.This post is dedicated to all my friends who’re really searching of good eye food !!!!This post is not affiliated..and the product I am going to review is my favorite one!!!.

Origins Ginzing refreshing eye cream to brighten and depuff. A very gentle cream for eyes yet an effective recipe to fight against dullness, under eye bags, puffiness and dark circles & it is Pricey too. At first I was little skeptical and did not want to add new member to my skin care routine as I was indeed trying to use all the free eye cream samples (Yes! trial size..lol!!!!) I received with my online orders. Oh wait ! now I remember I have also tried one from Sephora brand n it was ok!ok! though. Now let’s focus on our todays review.

So what I love about this product? just after first application one can see a visible difference. Consistency of the cream is so beautiful and light weight no more stretchy feeling no irritation except when try to get close to eyes. It is an excellent eye tonic for all skin types. Very balanced cream having richness of caffeine will make your eyes more awake n helps to regain a healthy look after a few application.A little goes a long way so not to worry at all. I apply twice a day or as needed and I don’t have any reason to dislike it. It does its job very well to get rid of eye bags or puffiness instantly. Just FYI i have a combination skin and also use it under my eye makeup yet no complaints. But girls with very oily skin tone might want to give it a second thought…Not so sure if it will get its job done with under eye makeup. Sensitive girls,I would recommend to check it personally in the store by applying a tester to back of your hand just to figure out its loyalty towards you (if possible avoid it now due to COVID-19).

I don’t have prominent dark circles around eyes as such but I have very tiny white patches under my eyes, even I am not sure about it. Since, I have started using it one can barely notice it. I am so happy & love it to the moon. This is it, my quest for a perfect eye cream has ended, at least for now…

The retail price of the cream is $32 (US Dollar) and did not buy it for the full price…A very big round of applause to me girls ……. It was on sale @ultabeauty store at discounted price 50% off. Yes !!!! damn good deal. Besides, not so sure if it works as an anti-aging cream so that’s the reason I am giving it 4.5 stars.

Clinique Even Better Clinical Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter

Hey guys !

I am going to review Clinique even better dark spot corrector today. I am sure there are many people out there who really want to buy this one but not sure about this product if it is really worth the hype or as advertised by the company itself. So not to worry, I am definitely going to take some burden off your shoulders.

Relax, take a deep breath and read !

Even Better Clinical™ Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter claims on Clinique website that ” It helps visibly correct discoloration and acne scars, while interrupting future dark spots by 39% reduction in dark spots and acne scars in 12 weeks”. If you need more information I would suggest please check company website.

CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical™ Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter

My take on this products. I use it twice a day follow with moisturizer and if I am going out then sunscreen is imperative like it is mentioned in website . Little over a month ago I started using dark spot corrector and since then I am observing my skin tone. The change is Positive, rather saying skin tone I would say the pigmentation and acne scars are getting lighter. Skin looks more awaken , dark spots on my nose are gradually fading. Now can’t comment on “interrupting future dark spots” it’s kind of difficult to keep track on upcoming dark spots. However, I feel its working on my skin & taking a good care of my old skin issues by providing nourishment it needs. on top of it , it has a Salicylic acid which helps to fight against acne ,cyst etc which is super cool !

Let’s talk about the cons. The texture of the serum could have been better , being said that I need at least two and a half pumps of serum to apply and it’s a white gel based serum . I personally feel application of the gel is not as smooth as expected and that’s probably because I have been using Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II for so long that accepting new one seems challenging for me. But I still think that there is scope of development in formulation. I hope they will work on it.

You can see the texture of the serum

There is something more important I want to talk about, just by using dark spot corrector alone I don’t think I can get that flawless skin but maintaining a regular routine which includes cleansing,Toning & Moisturizing so that skin absorbs the products better and gives a very miraculous result.

Last but not least if you think you have a very sensitive skin then I would recommend you to know company’s return policy 😉 . He he he ! don’t mind but my skin is also sensitive to few products where I see thousands of people reviewed it with 5 star so yes make sure money does not go to waste.

Finally , so far I am satisfied and a happy customer of Clinique dark spot corrector. Very soon I will be uploading my pictures showing before/after effect so yes I am on it. Giving it a 4.5 starts and its price is $52.50 (US Dollar). This is for now but I will be back soon with more reviews. Thanks for stopping by & reading my page.
