Vitamin C is one of the most used actives in any skincare product; be it in cleansers, toners serums and moisturizers. It is the one stop solution for all your skin concerns. But Vitamin C is somehow just not the cup of tea for skin of color due to our skin’s excess melanin production. So that is why we find most Vitamin C serums not working for us. Moreover, synthetic Vitamin C is one difficult ingredient that is more prone to oxidize super fast. This is where Liposomal process comes into light. Liposomal formulation is a process where the potent active ingredients are encapsulated so they penetrate deeper into the skin cells than the regular serums, and work effectively. And formulated with the same nano-technology, we have the Sesderma C-Vit Liposomal Serum which I’m going to talk about today. I’ve heard a lot about this brand ‘Sesderma’ and it has been in my wishlist forever; it is such a luxe brand and a popular one in most foreign countries. And thankfully I’m so so so glad that the team recently reached out to me to test out this best-seller Vitamin C Serum and I immediately started using this serum
Oh this is a never ending topic for us! I can talk about Kbeauty for hours and days. Well, Korean beauty has taken a storm in the skincare industry and everyone is so obsessed with the 5-step, 7-step and 10-step routines, layering products and what not. If you live right in the Korean country or around, or anywhere maybe it is easy to find and get Kbeauty through YesStyle and official websites which ship internationally. But idk why is it till date so difficult to get Kbeauty directly shipped to India..which is why most of us rely on third part apps or sellers who get them for us; mind you the prices they charge is also equally at hike than the original, ofcourse cannot blame them for the customs they’ve been charged though. Phew, isn’t this way too much struggle to get our hands on the so-much-wishlisted Kbeauty skincare products. Worry not..because I have brought you a list of websites from where you get buy your favorite korean skincare products without any hassle.
Some parts of your face being oily and some parts of your face feel dry? It is quite confusing, yet very common. It only means you have a combination skin type. Combination skin is mainly a combo of oily T-zone area and dry cheeks and jaw area. This is one of the most common skin types and there’s not much of genetics role here. However, external factors like stress, environmental pollution and also hormonal changes play a vital role. Having a balanced skincare routine is the key for healthy combination skin. I, myself, having a combination skin might a little about my journey in this post as well.
There’s a lot of misconception around Cleansing Balms, and Double Cleansing Routine – ‘cleansing balms are only for people who wear makeup’, ‘cleansing balms are not meant for oily skin’; I know we still live with such confusions around. Here’s the thing – Cleansing Balms are oil-based deep cleansers, which come in balms, creams and oil forms, that deep-cleanses the pores as the first cleanse step. This has to be carried with a second water-based cleanser to ensure deep cleansed skin. Cleansing balms have also been my favorite these days and I’m totally enjoying trying and experimenting with all new cleansing balms. Recently, I’ve been trying out the Earthy By Ellenza Matcha Green Tea Cleansing Balm, which has the goodness of Matcha Green Tea, Neem and Basil oils, and honestly loving it. Let’s see what this new Cleansing balm has for us, and why do I love it.
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.
Cleanser is a very important step in the skincare routine. I feel it plays a key role in giving a clean canvas to work out with main or targeted concerns in the next steps of the routine. I have got a chance to try out the Purito From Green Deep Foaming Cleanser recently and I’ll have to say it has become my favorite cleanser now. This vegan, fragrance-free, pH balancing smooth foaming cleanser is only made from simple and clean ingredients that are so gentle on the skin. In this post, I’ll share my thoughts about this beautiful cleanser that I’m loving so much lately.
Toners have lately been quintessential in my skincare routine, I should say. Such amazing creations by brands for skin and there’s no way I wouldn’t fall in love with them. I should really thank BeautyBarn team for sending out the best sellers from Purito skincare and I have only been using them all. Purito Centella Unscented Toner has become one of my recent favorite hydrating and soothing toners. I love the way it is absolutely so gentle and calming on the skin yet giving my skin that plump look. This post is entirely an informative post about this recent love for toners and why I’d even suggest you to try this. Before you start scrolling down, if you haven’t read about my detailed review on Purito Centella Unscented Serum and Purito Centella Unscented Recovery Cream, go ahead read it and get back here….
No introduction needed if you have already read my previous post about Purito Centella Unscented Recovery Cream, which was gifted by Purito and Beautybarn. And this is by far Purito’s one of the best selling serums. I literally loved using this beautiful serum throughout the cold weather, coz my skin needed that extra extra hydration during the winters and this serum really kept up its hydration game. Containing 49% highly-concentrated Centella Extract that has excellent effects of skin regeneration and recovery. In this blogpost, I’ll share my thoughts about this serum.. so keep reading/scrolling.
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.
