Bio-oil is known for its best-selling skin specialist oil, clinically proven to work on reducing scars and stretch marks, and its been a boon for all new mommies for their postpartum scars. After decades of this miracle oil, Bio-Oil introduced another sensation (which not many of us know well), the Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel. You heard it right. Its an oil-based gel for dry skin people; infact for all skin types whoever think the regular oil did not suit you, then you should definitely try this. In this post I’ll tell you what actually this product is, and what it does to you.
The biggest sale of the year is here! Nykaa Pink Friday Sale is just starting from Nov 24th – 28th and you can find your favorite products at amazing deals. So quickly check your bank accounts and get your wallets full, you’re definitely gonna end up with huge hauls; I promise. Here’s a simple post I thought to share with my little fam who wanna shop from the sale and who like to take my recommendations. I made it easy for you guys to shop quick and give my best suggestions about what to buy and what to leave.
But before even I give out my recommendations, I also wanted to warn you that be absolutely cautious in placing your orders. Always keep in mind these little precautions when adding products in your carts –
Dry skin is the most common skin type, which typically means your skin shows up symptoms like itchiness, flaky skin and tightness right after you rinse your face and pat dry. Dry skin can be hereditary, or seasonal or due to external factors like the excessive exposure of the skin to pollution, environment and sun. This dry skin type is most often confused with dehydrated skin, as these both have pretty overlapping symptoms. Dehydrated skin, however is a temporary skin condition (not a type) which means epidermal water loss from the skin. This kept aside, in this post I’ll share a simple yet effective skincare routine for dry skin.
Be it simple 3-step or a complex 10-step, I feel everyone has to have a routine for whatever skin type you have in order to achieve your dreamy, healthy looking skin. Sometimes, it is difficult to find what works best to us, but it all starts with building the right skincare routine for your skin, and it could be the solution to your skin issues; whatever might be the products recommended for you. Since I have started this series I’d start with the normal skin type first. (Immediately starts thinking) how many of you have ‘normal’ normal skin (these days), like the no-fillers, no-treatments and no-parlourwali skin types (no offense tho). Anyways, I wanna start sharing the most basic and simple (or easiest) skincare routine or a guide that you could follow everyday for your specific skin type to achieve your skin goals; and lets start with the NORMAL SKIN in this post.
I never thought I’d get a chance to try the Purito products; firstly my gratitude to BeautyBarn for sending me these bunch of Purito skincare goodies for review purposes. These were gifted in the mid January and I had to take a week extra to fully sort my then skincare routine and get on to this Purito thing. And I started my Purito routine by the last week of January. After a thorough 2 month routine, here I am, with my views and thoughts and my experience using the Purito Centella Unscented Recovery Cream. Since I have a bunch of products from them, I thought I’ll make individual posts, probably in the descending order of the routine; hence the Recovery Cream comes first now. Keep an eye for coming posts and keep reading this article.
From anti aging to skin rejuvenating properties, Gotu Kola, an age old Ayurvedic miracle ingredient is lately gaining so much fame and being widely used in most Indian beauty market. With its amazing skin restorative and magical benefits, the also known as Centella Asiatica, is said to be the Miracle Elixir for skin, as it truly is the ailment for so many health as well as skin issues. I clearly remember when Just Herbs introduced this ELixir and it went so hyped that I wanted to try it badly, but I couldn’t get to try for some reasons and I still have this in my wishlist. But (thankfully) recently, I have been sent this Gotukola Indian Ginseng Skin Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir by Just Herbs which I have been eyeing for such a long time. Thank you first of all team for this, and in this review I’ll share my thoughts about this beauty elixir.
Even though it’s been three weeks since 2021 has already begun, and since this will be my first post in 2021, I hope this year brings in a lots of happiness and prosperity to everyone. Firstly, I should thank Wonderskin for sending in this beauty for trying it out, and secondly I should apologize for being a little late to put up the review of this one. And as I am in my early thirties, I am definitely looking for anti aging products. Thankfully I got this Accoje Anti-Aging Intensive Ampoule. Ampoules are definitely my cup of tea kind of thingy, and here I am writing my review about this anti aging ampoule.
I am literally super late in talking about this, because of my website issues and stuff, this has been sitting in my drafts for so long. But anyways, here I’m. I had a chance to play with this huge bottle of gold. I mean isn’t it literally ‘the luxurious’ and liquid gold in a bottle. Argan Oil has always been my favorite hair oils for its nourishing and hair strengthening properties. Argan oil is also great as a hair serum for luscious locks. Having damaged hair inspite of my personal health issues and exterior factors, I had to maintain my tresses no matter what. Thanks to Lunarah Beauty team to handle me this bottle of love which I’m reviewing in this post. And omg, did you guys know this? If you’re wondering this names sounds so new, lemme tell you Luxurious Adore is now – LUNARAH BEAUTY! Yes, they’ve recently renamed their brand with all new #cleanbeauty launches, starting a new chapter ahead. Lunarah Beauty, I wish you all the luck and love. And since I had this from so long, you’d see Luxurious Adore labeling here but I’m sure all of the current products will be labeled as Lunarah Beauty. And now, let’s actually know what is this oil.
There’s not a single brush or a brush set that I hate from Real Techniques. I mean they always amaze me with their multi utility brushes. I literally wishlist every brush set from them but I know how hard it is for us Indians to get them. After a long wait, I recently could save up to get this beautiful yet so useful Everyday Essentials Brush Set from Real Techniques, which obviously is an set of everyday essential brushes which can be used in multiple ways accordingly. While I splurge on most affordable brushes in the market, this one’s something out of the box and for the love of Real Techniques. If you are someone looking for some good Real Techniques brushes or even a beginner looking for quality brushes, then you have to check these.
Feels like 2020 is really the year for all homegrown brands. And Instagram is the main platform(and reason) we get to connect with such amazing local brands and educate the consumers in all possible ways. Glamaroma is one such natural Indian beauty brand, whom I’ve known from a very long time and have had an opportunity to work with them a couple of times. If you aren’t following me on my Instagram (@shailaja_l), I have talked about some of their products which I have tried from them..(reviewing them soon). This post is about the newest skincare range; the Tea Tree Skin Refining variant which targets the acne-prone skin people mostly. If you are one of them, keep on reading..
