Rica Brazilian Wax With Avocado Butter is an excellent strip less sensitive area skin wax. Rica waxes as a brand give reliable and long-lasting waxing effect for skin waxing. The effect of the waxing seems to last longer than the other normal waxes used to remove body hairs from arms, legs, face and other sensitive areas like bikini waxing. This Brazilian Wax with Avocado Butter as the name suggests is especially for the bikini waxing and face and other sensitive areas. There is a lot of ease of use of this wax in the bikini area as we don’t need to use the strips to remove the applied wax, once it dries off the dried wax can be just pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth. This makes it easy for self-use in the privacy of our home. If used regularly, the growth of the hair reduces reasonably over a span of time as well as the thickness of the growing hair reduces considerably
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil is a naturally sourced and pre-blended to treat blemishes and acne/pimple outbreak on the face. Coming from a reputed hair and skincare products sourcing company, the product can be trusted to apply on the face which is one of the most sensitive and exposed skin parts of the human body.

This product of Maybelline comes in two varieties waterproof and non-waterproof and the water proof mascara needs a proper make-up remover to be cleared of the eyes.

It is a quick acting and affordable product in the range of acne clearing products available in the market. The kit contains a cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer that are the basic products for complete daily routine skin care. The cleanser helps in washing the initial layer of dirt and pollution gathered on the face due to exposure and the toner, when used with help of a cotton ball removes extra under-lying dirt and removes excess oil on the skin, which prevents any outbreak of acne. The toner is clinically proven to soothe the skin and helps in dealing with inflammation and redness caused due to acne. The last product of the kit is the moisturizer which is cent percent odour free, water-based moisturizer and is again known for its effect on reducing the pimples and acne caused irritation as well as blemishes completely. It is a light weight moisturizer and it does not allow peeling and drying of the skin. The entire kit is sufficient for the daily based routine for a span of a month and the use of this kit has left my skin feeling clean and clear.
Milani Stay Put Brow Color is available in eight different shades to exactly suit the various eyebrow colours exactly. The product comes with a spoolie applicator or dual-ended brush and the hue is in a small pot. The product is entirely different from the usual eyebrow pencil and liners we use to accentuate the shape and colour of our eyebrows. It claims to be a long-stay water-proof product but I have experienced quite opposite, as it smudges with the slightest touch and becomes runny with the forehead sweat. To keep it on and in place you need to use powder over it, so that the smudging is controlled due to sweating etc. Overall, it is a great product for someone who loves their eyebrows in perfect shape and shade.
MAC Lipglass Gloss is a product made by Mac to be used as a stand-alone lip colouring lip gloss, but it can also be used in combination of lip pencils, over lipstick to create a shiny and striking look of the lips. As it is a gloss it keeps the lips hydrated and subtle, thanks to the presence of jojoba oil in the ingredients which helps to soften and smoothen the lips. The lipglass gloss gives a glass like clear finish when applied as it is or over other lip make-up products. The gleaming shine created by the lip gloss is definitely long stay. The product can be mixed with other products like pigments and used to create interesting facts over the body except the eye area. The product is a highly pigmented product and a small quantity of it is sufficient to cover the entire lip span and keep the lips subtle and moisturized and shining.

The instant glow and spark on the face is really appreciable and recognisable.

Healthvit Activated Charcoal Purifying Peel Off Mask is a peel off mask which is ideal for use by both men and women alike. I use this mask once or twice a week and it helps in removal of embedded dirt, whiteheads as well as impurities lying on the surface of the skin which don’t get removed by normal cleaning and rinsing of the face. I first wash my face with a gentle cleanser and then apply the peel off mask in a slightly thick and even layer on the face avoiding the hairline, eye area and on eyebrows to avoid any sort of discomfort. It usually takes less than half an hour to dry off and then what comes is the interesting part of peeling off the mask from the face. It doesn’t come off as a single piece like we desired it but then the tightening effect of the face, is clearly experienced once the mask dries off. After removing the peel off mask it is a must to apply a toner to close the opened pores and moisturize the skin with a light gentle moisturizer. The skin definitely feels squeaky clean and bright after use of the mask.
O3+ whitening facial kit can be used at home to do the usual facial regime or the daily regular skin care routine. For using as a home regimen, I use the Whitening cleansing foam in the morning to wash face and then whitening tonic. In the night I use the whitening foam again to clear the face of the day’s dirt and pollution followed by whitening serum. Weekly or fortnightly I use the whitening mask on the face and neck or alternate with the whitening massage cream. This process has gradually reduced the sun-exposed tan on my face and other areas. If used as a typical facial regime the individual products of the kit it provides a constant glow and fairness that is desirable by all ladies.

It keeps the body feeling fresh and a beautiful pleasant smell lingers for long after the shower. The perfume of the shower gel which is a combination of fruits, herbs and spices keeps the body scented after a bath and gives a boost to the mind and a kick-start to the day.

It is completely natural and no chemicals have been included in this product. The product is a biologically safe, naturally occurring hydrating mist suitable for all skin types and can be safely used on sensitive to over-sensitive skin.

A small quantity of the product is sufficient to cover the entire face and exposed neck portions, if applied with fingers equally all over the desired region. As the product is mousse like in form, it is not runny and thick instead. The packaging of the product is a glass jar with a screw-on black lid, which cannot be carried easily, as there may be chances of leakage and glass breakage. The product is easy to blend and forms a non-flaky even surface once applied. It gives a matte effect and glow to the face minutes after applying. The foundation looks completely natural when applied and can be left as it is or used as a base for further make-up.
Gel based and long stay.
I really like to highlight my eyes as it is much easier than doing a complete face make-up or painting for going out. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner is a perfect eyeliner gel in a convenient shaped bottle and is an excellent addition to my set of eye make-up wear as it is sweat resistant and a long stay. The product is available in a variety of colours for those who like to experiment with their eye painting. The choice of colour tone and the way of application as in how thin or thick we apply the eyeliner gel with help of a separate brush decides the image portrayed, it can be ultra-fine to considerably striking. As it is a gel-based eyeliner it does not smudge or spread beyond the line applied and stays over a long period of time enhancing the eyes outlined carefully with the gel eyeliner, with help of a separate brush.
Being a mother of two actively growing twins, I rarely have the time for complete make-up and the least I indulge in most of the times is applying kohl to my eyes.

Having a normal skin type I have never been exposed to pimples and acne, but my sister-in-law staying with us, is having terrible trouble with her acne-prone skin, right from her teens. She has tried almost most of the products available in the market including this Himalaya-acne-n-pimple-cream, to help her clear out the pimples that keep appearing regularly over her face and break into an acne attack mostly always. Now this Himalaya acne-n-pimple- cream is a regular herbal based formula, typical of the company aimed to deal with pimple and acne outbreak. It has a muddy colour and appearance and is better to be applied over the pimple area, rather than the entire face and neck as a general face cream. If used all over the face it leaves the skin rather dry and gives a stretchy feeling rather than a moisturized affect. Coming to the effect of the cream on acne-prone skin, it is not very affective and neither assists in preventing further pimples. The cream when applied over acne, not only takes a normal span of 5-7 days to reduce the acne, but also leaves a pimple mark on the face. Only visible effect of the cream is it reduces redness of the acne all over the face and the aloe-vera ingredient present in it is useful for skin care. It has a typical herbal smell which is not very pleasant either. Overall my sister-in-law was not very satisfied with the performance of the cream.
Having a normal skin type and medium skin tone, MAC Bronzing Powder completely seems to be formulated for my skin. The bronzing effect of the MAC Bronzing powder helps in concealing the odd tan caused by the harsh summer sun and the camouflaging is perfectly apt, for contouring the skin. It is a bronzing powder and hence the colour is not orange, pink or red but brown which is the natural skin tone and absolutely made for the purpose. The packaging is typical of MAC black box and written in bronze which is clearly identifiable from other products. The only point to be noted is that it does not come with an applicator and a separate brush needs to be used for applying the same. The powder is perfect to accentuate skin tone.
Smudge and water-proof.
Faces Magneteyes Kajal as the title suggests sticks to the eyes for a long time, almost for a span of the day. It is bold and dark striking black in colour, which is noticeable and makes an impact with a single stroke on the eyelids. I have used it as an eyeliner too few times for its sheer non-smudge quality and it has proven to be a water proof eye make-up. This kajal is completely natural and chemical-free so it has no side effects on the eyes. The bold, dark and prominent black colour of this kajal makes it highly affordable in the price range of Rs.125-175/-. Best part of the product is it does not smudge or spread over the eyelids giving a complete clean finish to the eyes.
moisturizes the lips.
Needs constant touch up and redoing.
NYX Butter Lipstick is a smooth cream like lipstick available in several shades. When applied it moisturizes the lips and leaves them completely nourished and strikingly coloured. The lipstick is completely light weight and gives full coverage to the lips. The lip colour spreads like butter-cream on the lips and the colour gives an attractive finish to the lips. As it is butter-cream based lip colour it can be applied on bare lips directly, or on an initial quote of lip base and within outlined lips, to give the complete striking finish. Though the lipstick gives full nourishing coverage to the lips, the lipstick needs frequent touch up to give a refreshed and neatly done look.
Having a normal skin type, I usually prefer not using any kind of make-up base application. This NYX pore filler cream/foundation base is a beautifully designed product and suits excellently, to none or any kind of light or heavy make up application. At first, when I applied, I was very apprehensive as my skin is very clear and reacts easily to anything which will not suit the skin type. To my sheer surprise the pore filler, which comes out of the tube more like a powdery substance but when applied forms a smooth and clear base quoting on the face and neck for make up or can be left as it is to give a clear and even look of the face. It is a Vitamin E enriched cream and improves the skin texture with regular use.
These are excellent nail polish strips and much more convenient than the actual nail paint application, though not very easily available. The variety of these strips is great and the finished nails look very clearly vivid. As the name suggests the nails look as good as done in a beauty parlour, if the steps of applying the strips are correctly adhered to. I have applied these strips several times and each time the various designs make the nails look very attractive. With the variety of designs available I have painted each of my nails differently and the designs look striking when the application is done correctly and patiently.
