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 -

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 -

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 -

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.

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

Carmex Original Flavour Moisturising Lip Balm


Carmex Original Flavour Moisturising Lip Balm




Winters have started approaching and it seems wonderful to have a sunny day among all the crazy cold weekdays. So, beach days are over and its time to get covered with layers. And what comes as a gift in winters is dry skin and lips. O yes, everyday we have to deal with dry flaky skin in winters and we need to care it in a special way.

There was a time when I got certain lip infection/allergy and everything failed. I tried all the lip balms and also home made remedies but nothing worked. It has been almost a month and I was so disappointed with all the lip products.


Then one of my friend suggested me to try Carmex and kudos..it really worked. It was like a boon for my cracked, infact badly cracked and dry lips.


What the brand says:
The traditional Carmex formula is made with camphor and menthol, in a soothing base of cocoa butter and waxes, it turns ravaged lips into very kissable ones, very fast! The special Carmex formula also gives your lips the Carmex tingle when you apply and this tingle let's you know it's working. 


How it works:  
Used on its own to give a fresh and natural appearance, or as a lipstick undercoat or sealant, Carmex will leave your lips nourished and conditioned.


Results:
The unique formula of Carmex lip balm helps to moisturise, soothe and relieve dry, chapped lips caused by environmental factors and thus results in soft and healthy looking lips.

Directions to use:
Apply carmex lip balm liberally and freely to lips as often as necessary, and re-apply after eating or drinking. Especially useful before and after exposure to sunlight, wind or low temperatures. Recommended before and after lipstick application to help preserve and restore moisture.


Packaging:
It comes in a convenient squeeze tube with yellow and red packaging, which makes it easy to apply.


Ingredients: 
Petrolatum, Lanolin, Cetyl Esters, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Paraffinum Liquidum, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Camphor, Menthol,Salicylic Acid, Fragrance, Vanillin. 

  
 Carmex Original Flavour Moisturising Lip Balm
 
 

 
Price: 
  $6.49


I have used so many lip balms like maybelline baby lips, nivea, palmer's cocoa butter lip balm and I found all those really good but what makes carmex different from all those is its ability to heal even the extreme cracked and chapped lips which all other failed to heal. As I told you earlier I used this when all other lip balms and even all the home remedies failed to cure my lip allergy.

If you are suffering from any lip allergy, you must give it a try. I am in this lip balm and prefer to apply it before going to sleep.


Pros: 
-It softens and soothes the lips
-Heals even very dry and cracked lips
-Comes with goodness of Shea butter and jojoba oil
-Very moisturizing and hydrating
-Travel friendly tube packaging
-No added color
-Inexpensive
-Fragrance free

Cons :
 -No con at all


Overall Rating:

5/5
