Get rid of Acne overnight - Dream Dots Review


 Dream Dots Review
 
Be it a teenager or a person in early twenties, a girl or boy, almost everybody suffers from acne and pimples. And in some cases it gets so severe that everything fails and the one, who is suffering, going through that situation feels really humiliated with so many scars and spots. Not only in teenage or early twenties but one may face acne in late twenties or at any stage of life due to hormonal changes and stress and many other reasons.

I had severe acne problem in my teenage and I still breakout every now then and specially during that time of month, I always get one pimple on my face prior to my date. Till date, I am not able to find any fixed and permanent cure for acne. Proper skin care routine and healthy eating habits may reduce it. I heard somewhere about Dreamdots, which are known to vanish acne/spot overnight. I got very keen on trying these.
 

What the brand says:

A dream dot is a unique super absorbent hydro matrix round patch, which targets and cures spots and breakouts overnight. It doesn't contain any harsh ingredients, yet gives dramatically effective results. It is waterproof, satin-smooth, breathable with wafer like thin surface and acts seamlessly as a second skin, conforming to any contour of the face. 

When brought in contact with the spot, its patented core locks in and absorbs the spot exudate and then a healing environment is formed, maintaining ideal temperature and hydration levels and pH balance, while sealing in all the repair factors which leads to fast healing. Acne/pimple pain is reduced as nerve endings are properly cushioned and protected in this moist condition. When removed in the morning, the patch will swell and turn white overnight, resulting in visibly reduced redness and inflammation.

Dream Dots Review


How it works:  

Dream Dots won’t dry out, hurt or sting your skin, like some creams and ointments may do. These are breathable and durable and have an opaque satin lining which conceals while heal. Once sealed these conforms to any contour of the face, just like second skin. Dream dots are used on pimples, spots, acne and zits, giving dramatically powerful and effective results, using no harsh ingredient.



How to apply:

1. Take one dream dot and peel it half.
2. Apply it onto the spot and peel off the outer layer completely.
3. Press it on the spot for approx 5 seconds.
4. Apply Dream dots before going to bed and leave overnight for 6-10 hours.

My Views On Dream Dots :

After hearing about these, I was really excited to try on these as acne is something everybody hates, so do I. And we all dream of that flawless and spotless skin. Though beauty is in the heart but I love doing makeup and I need a clear skin for that.

The adhesive is very gentle on the skin and feels like second skin. You will not get irritated while rolling or moving. I thought that it will not stay on place till morning, as I don't sleep that peacefully :P but to my surprise it did survive all that and was there on the same place in the morning too. It does reduce redness, inflammation and size of pimple and really makes it vanish overnight. I was so happy when I tried these for the first time. The second time when I applied this dot on my very big and painful pimple, I was sure it would not help. I left it there for almost 15-20hrs and then to my surprise the pimple was completely gone. Thank god as it was my niece's birthday same day ;). God plays tricks on such days na!!

I may sound stupid but I went for shopping while the dot was still there on my face, which I applied last night. As it was my niece's first birthday function in the evening and I had to make that big pimple vanish. And the dot really worked. Being honest I never imagined that there can be something like this for vanishing pimples.

This pack contains 24 dots, as there are 4 strips with 6 dots on each strip. These are available on Terry White and all Chemist Warehouse Pharmacies Australia wide and also available online on Dreamdotsforspots website.

 It does relieve the pain in a single night but to erase the spot completely it may take 3-4 nights or simply some extended hours. I prefer removing acne in single use, leaving the dot on it for one day and night, depending upon the size of acne. But it does make the pimple heal 80-90% faster than other things and that too without drying out the skin.

It is really easy to use this product. As the product says, in the morning the dot will have turned white in colour but I did not notice any such change in colour but yes it did reduce the size of pimple. When applied only overnight, it made pimple vanish in 3 days that too without pain. These are like plaster and the colour is almost similar to skin so don't look odd at all. Anyways you have to apply these at night. A pimple which usually takes 6 days, vanishes in almost 3 using these dream dots or 1 day the way I use these. I am loving it.

These are available at all chemist warehouse stores, terry white and also in other pharmacies. Though availability may be an issue but these can be bought directly from dream dots website and they offer worldwide shipping and by using the code "Dream10" you will get a discount of 10%. This product may be your saviour if you get a pimple before some special occasion. Have it with you and worry no more. 

Overall Rating:

5/5

I would definitely recommend it to all those who suffer from acne/pimple problems, no matter how severe it is. Also, all those who got a surprise pimple before some important occasion like me, it is the best way to make your skin pimple free and that too within a very short span of time, within 24hrs. Thats it!!

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation 200 soft Beige - Review and FOTD



 
 
Talk about foundations, I always prefer matte ones over others. Why!! Oh, I have super duper oily skin. So, basically, matte ones too turn oily for me after 4-5 hours.

A mousse foundation, which claims to give nice coverage, is ultra light weight and keep your skin matte, definitely makes me rush to try it. Matte is the word every girl with oily or acne prone skin is familiar too and its something we love. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation is one such product, which made me running to the store to try and buy it when it was on a special discount. I have used Rimmel's BB creams in the past and still find those best ones. If I talk about the best drugstore brand for face then Rimmel tops the list, be it the foundations, bb creams, stay matte power or primer.

While going through all the shades, I found 200 soft beige a perfect match for my skin. I think rimmel offers very nice quality for a super inexpensive price. I have tried many foundations within same range of other brands too, but this one wins the race for me. 


What the brand says:

This extra lightweight mattifying foundation controls shine all day and give natural matte finish. Its silky smooth texture leaves you with a natural-looking, baby-soft finish that won't feel heavy or greasy.



 
 

Packaging:

 It comes in a squeeze tube packaging. The quality is perfectly fine and travel friendly. Only the required amount comes out of the tube and its neither too thin nor runny.


Ingredients: 

 CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, POLYPROPYLENE, DICAPRYLYL ETHER, POLYGLYCERYL-3 BEESWAX, AQUA/WATER/EAU, METHYLMETHACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, LAURETH-4, BHT, ISODODECANE,TALC, TRIBEHENIN, SORBITAN SESQUIOLEATE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE,  TRIHYDROXYSTEARIN, KAOLIN, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE, ALUMINUMSTARCH OCTENYLSUCCINATE, DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, SILICA DIMETHYL SILYLATE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL,  PHENOXYETHANOL,  DIMETHICONOL, TOCOPHEROL
May Contain : TITANIUMDIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499).


Price: 

$14.95 for 30ml


FOTD:



 



My Views on Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation :

The texture is so soft and creamy just like butter, of course it is mousse foundation so it has to be soft and it blends so easily without any special effort. It doesn't make your face look cakey and is very lightweight. It gives a natural matte coverage to the face. Though the coverage is not as good as Estee Lauder double wear, but then there is a huge difference among the price of two. If you have problem skin or acne marks then this foundation may not be able to hide those.

I always prefer to set my foundation with some loose power as it makes everything stay in place, specially in humid weather. But in the pictures below I haven't applied any loose powder above this foundation, just to show my readers how it really looks. I wish it had SPF too, as I prefer foundation which comes with SPF so that I do not need to use sunscreen and only foundation is enough.

It blends so nicely and makes the skin look naturally flawless, covering all the little flaws and discoloration too. Best suited for combination to oily skin beauties. I think it will suit dry skin too, when applied over a moisturizer.

To make it stay longer, apply loose powder over it to fix it, otherwise it may bleed in very humid weather, I mentioned very humid as it rarely bleeds in humid weather too but I haven't taken risk yet. :P


Pros: 

- Light weight
- Inexpensive
- Natural finish
- Easy to blend
- Doesn't cause breakout
- Perfect for oily/combination skin
- Easily available

Cons:

- No SPF
- Light coverage

- No major flaws covered (I didn't expect too :))

Overall Rating:

4.5/5

I will definitely recommend and repurchase it too.  It is perfect budget foundation for daily wear and doesn't make a hole in pocket.


Which is your favourite daily wear foundation? Do you prefer high or light coverage?

Nip+Fab Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads


Nip+Fab Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads

I have used many cleansing pads and wipes but exfoliating cleansing pads was something new to me. The word exfoliating made me really excited to try this product "Nip+Fab Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads".


What the brand says:
  • Unveil your younger-looking skin with these innovative Glycolic Fix. 
  • Contains 60 radiance boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid, which retextures and resurfaces skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone.
  • These moisturising pads contains hyaluronic acid and soothing blue daisy, which helps to reveal brighter and smoother looking skin.


Directions to use:
  • Apply Nip+Fab cleansing pad to cleansed skin once or twice daily.
  • Wipe pad across face, neck & decollete.


Packaging:

These come in a plastic jar container. It helps retain the moisture.


Ingredients: 

Aqua (Water), Limonene, Glycerin, Globularia Alypum (Blue Daisy) Extract, Glycolic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Polysorbate 20, Alcohol Denat (SD Alcohol 40-B), Sodium Hydroxide, Linalool, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Panthenol, Lactic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Parfum, Dehydroacetic Acid, Citral, Geraniol.

Price: 

$34.99


My Views:

Though these pads look like any other cleansing pad but these will totally change the texture of your skin. These contain glycolic acid, which is used for exfoliation in many facials. The cleansing pads help remove dead skin cells, keeping those wrinkles at bay and making skin look really fresh and brighter.

Being a combination of gycolic acid and witch hazel, these pads exfoliate from one side and moisturise from other. Ahhh!! it sounds divine to me. Though these pads exfoliate the skin but not as harsh as scrubs, so you can easily use one pad everyday. When I used this pad for the first time I felt some itching on my acne. But after using 2-3 times, I do not feel any itching any more.

I really like these pads. They're not as strong as they make out, the glycolic at 5% being the equivalent of Glow Tonic, but they do contain extra acids in the form of lactic, salicylic and mandelic. They also contain niacinamide, a brilliant ingredient that is proven to improve skin’s elasticity, enhance its barrier function and help with pigmentation. After I posted about them on Instagram, quite a few readers mentioned that these are much better than the original Glycolic Fix pads and much less drying. That would make sense as these contain less alcohol.

This product is available at all priceline stores Australia wide and you can also buy these from Nip and Fab website.


Pros: 

- No parabens
- Vegan
- Citrus smell


Cons:

- Nothing


Overall Rating:

4.5/5

I would surely recommend these cleansing pads to those on the run. These is quick and not messy to use. These are not harsh and do not contain those tugging granules. These suited my oily acne prone skin very well. I would say, do try a pack to know their worth.


Wish you all a wonderful weekend

Beating The Chill With Black Trench - OOTD

“I like my money where I can see it – hanging in my closet”

I so believe in this :P.

Black trench coat - OOTD and rosegal review

Fashion is all about being comfortable and confident in whatever you wear. To look fashionable, it is not necessary to go out while burning your fuel and spend huge bucks on those highly expensive brands. With so many better options available online these days, you can buy your dream dresses within the comfort of your home and at super affordable prices.

But with so many options available these days, it seems difficult to choose best among rest, the one who is trustable and provides quality clothing and service too.  While surfing through all such websites, I got stuck on ROSEGAL. I was really impressed with their  collection and the thing which was hard to believe for me was, this store provides cheapest price. 

I could not wait any longer, but placed my order. I found the customer service persons really warm and friendly while treating customers. Like I bothered 2-3 times about when will I get my order and this and that and always I was welcomed with a very sweet and satisfactory response.

I usually get eager to get the products, right after placing :P I think everybody does :). This time being no exception, I was eagerly waiting for my dress to arrive. Ahhh finally it was the day when I got my most awaited parcel and the product is just how I expected it to be. You can see the pictures to know how it looked.

Elucent Anti Ageing Range Review

Elucent anti ageing range review and my skin care regimen


 
We all crave for perfect,  flawless and healthy skin, like babies. And some are even blessed with such beautiful skin naturally. But what about others like me who are not naturally blessed with flawless skin. Well for people like me, skin care products come to rescue.

After a certain age it becomes necessary to follow a skin care regimen to keep those wrinkles at bay and to keep your skin healthy and smooth.  Especially after 28 or 30, you must start using anti ageing products which will help reduce skin ageing.

I have been noticing drastic change in my skin condition since last year, it has become dull and  lifeless.  The culprit in my case has been chickenpox. Chickenpox has taken away life from my skin and has left it all dull. In that case, it becomes all the more necessary to stick to a skin care regimen. Being honest I am very lazy to follow it but my skin has been shouting for it. So I thought of buying some good skin care products, but then there were few questions in my mind, like should I go for anti ageing range..does my skin need it..or should I go for brightening range!! But then my sister suggested me to go for anti ageing range. With so many brands available in the market it is really difficult to choose one. I have heard so many good things about Elucent skin care so I thought of giving “Elucent Anti Ageing Range” a try and see the difference.



1. Cleanser -

 Elucent anti ageing range and my skin care regimen

Price - $20.99

Cleansing is important for all age groups as it is the basic step to get rid of all impurities, pollution and makeup. One should cleanse the face using a good cleanser according to skin type at least twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed. I have been using cetaphil for a long time and loved it, as other cleansers cause me breakout. But these days, I am using elucent cleanser, which is so perfect for my skin. It doesn’t make my skin feel dry and doesn't cause any breakout too. It has diamond like shine and I love the way it looks. I like its fragrance, very mild and nice.



2. Night Moisturizer -

Elucent anti ageing range review and my skin care regimen


Price - $34.99

Be it the morning or night, moisturizer is very essential for the skin, specially in winters. As harsh cold wind steal away the moisture of face leaving it dry and more prone to wrinkles. And then it becomes necessary to hydrate the skin using a good moisturizer. I would recommend elucent anti ageing night moisturizer as it makes my skin feel really good and I can notice good change in my skin after regular use of this range. As I have super oily skin, I need a moisturizer which is meant for oily skin and not just any moisturizer otherwise it may cause breakout, so is the case with sensitive and dry skin. One should choose the product according to the problem and type of skin.



3. Body Moisturiser -


Elucent anti ageing range review and my skin care regimen

Price - $34.99

We should take good care of our body too as of face, as body also suffers ageing like our facial skin. One needs special anti ageing body products, which are meant to fight the signs of ageing. Moisturizer for face and body should be different and skin on face and body are totally different.



4.  Day Moisturiser With SPF 50+ -


 

Price - $42.39 

Trying a new sunscreen is quite scary for me as it often causes me breakout and usually activates my oil glands. But Elucent sun screen is so perfect for me. It doesn't make my skin look oily and is a perfect makeup base too. Though it is little expensive but best for face. I apply this sunscreen in the morning before applying makeup. I have used many sunscreens but this one is best till date. Totally worth the money and you get enough quantity. 


5. Serum -

 

Price - $34.99

Now this the the most important part of skin care and it’s the main food for your skin which will give fruitful results by giving your skin all the essential nutrients it needs to blossom. You can use any oil/serum depending upon your skin type. This is the best way to rejuvenate, hydrate and brighten skin while keeping fine lines away.  I would recommend serums to all oily skin beauties while dry skin beauties can use oils too. Try using Elucent serum and it will bring a huge difference in your skin and not to forget those compliments you will start having for your skin. My skin just loves it, its neither sticky nor drying.



6.  Eye cream -

 Elucent anti ageing range review and my skin care regimen

Price - $34.99

You need to invest in eye creams as skin around eyes is thinner than face and you can not simply use face cream on it. It is very sensitive and prone to dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and fine lines. I would suggest to store eye creams in refrigerator as it will not only help in fighting all the ageing signs but will also sooth tired eyes by its cooling properties.

Elucent anti ageing range review and my skin care regimen

After using Elucent anti ageing range for almost 2-3 weeks, I noticed that my skin looks more healthy, soft and glowing too. As I have already discussed that I have been facing a really bad skin and hair time, this range has definitely helped me getting rid of unhealthy, patchy and rough skin.

I will recommend it to all the girls who have crossed 28yrs. The anti ageing range from Elucent is just perfect and surely needs investing for good. Surely I am gonna repurchase this :)


Stay Beautiful and Pretty
Love ya all
