Beautiful highlighter

LA Girl Velvet Contour Highlighter Stick comes in a plastic twistable tube which is much like a pan-stick. The plastic case of this highlighter is not very sturdy and the cap shuts very loosely and tends to fall out. The packaging is not very travel friendly and there is a fear of the product getting spoiled while carrying. LA Girl Velvet Contour Highlighter Stick has a very beautiful champagne shimmery shade. It blends easily into the skin. It adds a subtle shimmery glow on the face. It has a creamy texture which becomes matte after blending. I apply it with my fingertips over my cheek bones, nose, fore head and jaw area. It is easy to use and blend. This highlighter does not give a breakout or feel oily. I like its matte shimmery feel. It stays for 4-5 hours if applied without a primer. It is good for beginners as it is easy to use and affordable. Good for regular use where you don’t need long lasting product.

Pro's

Subtle shimmers.

Matte shimmery effect.

Reasonably priced.

Con's

Not travel friendly.

Not very long lasting.

Not very convenient to use.

Does not work at all

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 comes in a grey bottle with a red cap. It contains caffeine which enter the hair roots and promotes hair growth. It is targeted at men who develop bald patches. My husband had started facing this issue lately. He read about Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 online and therefore thought of trying it. The guidelines on the bottle tells you to use it daily. Alpecin 1 works by penetrating caffeine into the root follicles. It takes only two minutes for caffeine to get absorbed. It goes into the hair follicle and promotes hair growth. My husband tried it after reading about it but even after using it for over two months, there was no visible difference in the hair. He was not at all satisfied with this shampoo and soon gave it up. It does not do what it claims and does not show any improvement in the hair. This shampoo does not come cheap either which means it is utter waste of money.

Pro's

Promotes hair growth.

Treats bald patches.

Contains caffeine.

Con's

Does not bring results.

Not available easily.

Golden oil with many benefits

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. The bottle is very hygienic and the dropper is easy to use. It prevents wastage of the product and dispenses only the required quantity of the oil. A few drops of the oil are sufficient to cover the entire face. I got this oil some time back and have been using it for almost two weeks now. Its results are almost miraculous. It heals dry and cracked skin easily and brings visible results. In two weeks, it has improved the overall texture of my skin and has made it look beautiful. It is light and non-greasy. It gets absorbed so easily that it almost feels like nothing. It is extremely moisturising. My upper lip and lower lip area was becoming dark due to dryness, I applied it regularly at night and now those dark areas have become light and merged with the other area of the face. It has made my skin tone even and glowing.

Unique shades

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick comes in a dark blue and golden case. The case looks very pretty and royal. The case is really sleek and elegant. The cap shuts tightly maintaining the hygiene of the lipsticks. It is available in 57 shades which is quite a variety to choose from. The texture of this lipstick is creamy and moist which glides easily on the lips without tugging. It is richly pigmented and hides the original colour of the lips well. The lipstick is colour coded at the bottom and has the name of the shade engraved with golden colour. The shades are very unique and wearable. I bought a few shades for my everyday look. My friends compliment me for my lipsticks and find the shades very unique. It provides soft and moisturised lips throughout the day and does not make them look or feel dry. Surely a bit expensive but I like the compliments that it generates for me. The pigmentation is amazing. It takes only two swipes to get the right shade. It has good staying power.

Amazing toner

Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing All over Toner comes in a white bottle with a spray dispenser. It sprays and distributes the toner evenly on the face. The toner causes mild stinginess which subsides almost immediately. It removes deep rooted impurities with ease. I cleansed my face with a moisturiser and then sprayed this toner on my face. I was surprised to see a few specs of dust on the cotton ball after wiping my face. It leaves a dry and matte effect on my face which I really like since I have an oily and acne prone skin. It controls the shine and my face looks fresh and clean. Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing All over Toner is a convenient and easy to use product. The fragrance is very strong and might irritate those with sensitive nose. It is very effective for cleaning the back which remains oily and acne prone. I am amazed to see its results on my neck back. It cleanses the back and removes oil and impurities unlike any other product.

Heavy and oily cream

Avene TriXera Nutrition Nutri-Fluid Balm is a fragrance free, nourishing and protective balm. It is specifically formulated for dry and very dry skin. It helps in forming skin barrier against dehydration. It helps in reducing skin’s hyper-activity and hyper-activity. It soothes and reduces skin’s irritation. The rich and thick formula of Avene TriXera Nutrition Nutri-Fluid Balm offers the richness of a balm with the texture of a lotion. It is non-sticky, non-greasy and smooth providing 24 hour hydration. I use it for my hands and legs. I prefer this lotion for my elbows and knees which usually become dark due to dryness. Nutri-fluid balm keeps the elbow and knee area soft and supple. It has reduced my darkness around that area. I don’t use it for my face as it is heavy and sits on the skin like a balm but I really find this effective for very dry areas. It combats dryness caused due to winters and my skin remains soft even in winters. It is effective for extra dry skin also.

Non-comedogenic.

Lifts and lengthens the lashes

The applicator wand provides good grip and lifts the eye lashes. The length of the bristles is just appropriate to reach even the tiniest eye lashes. It is one of the darkest black mascaras that I have tried so far. Once it gets dried, it stays for very longer time without getting smudged. It is sweat proof and easily survives a hot summer day. I have used this mascara for over a week and have noticed how beautifully it defines my eye lashes and makes them look prominent. It is highly pigmented and makes light eye lashes look gorgeous too. It takes a little time to dry. It gives a natural look. The consistency is creamy and smooth. It comes in a very pocket friendly price.
