Importance of Vitamin C Serum- Vya Naturals Vit C serum Review and Giveaway

Hello Guys,

I will start by saying that at the end of this post you are going to be very happy 🙂

With Korean beauty and Natural beauty regimens taking over the world, we are now aware of so many essential things. Two years back, I had no idea what a serum really did for your skin. Now, I know that a serum is very important and provides an extra layer of moisture to your skin. There are many Vitamins that are essential to our skin like Vitamin C, E, D and K. While you can get Vitamin D and K naturally from the sun and your bones, Vit E and C need to be taken in from other sources.

I have tried quiet a few serums, essence and facial oils over the past 2 years, and today I am going to share my views on  Vya Naturals Vitamin C serum for all of you.IMG_6707.JPG

About Vya Naturals:-

The brand name VYA naturals is derived from:-

  • Vimal (pure)
  • Yajus (reverence)
  • Ayush (healthy life)

“If it’s going on my body, it better be good.” They live an preach by this moto. They make sure that they source the finest natural ingredients that are not only safe and non-toxic but also effective. Their formulations are original, created by them, and tested on people, not animals. They use therapeutic- grade essential oils, natural plant-based butters, natural clays and plant-based waxes. And they definitely DO NOT use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum.IMG_6709.jpg

Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum:-

Ingredients:-

Directions:-

IMG_6705.jpg

Price and Where to buy:-

Rs 1295/- for 30 ml product

Buy it here (Use code VYA20 at checkout for 20% discount)

Why Vitamin C serum:-

Vitamin C has many benefits like:-

  • Reduces Wrinkles and photodamage by regulating the synthesis of the structural protein collagen.
  • Improves skin hydration
  • Reduces under eye circles
  • Creates brighter, healthier skin
  • reduces skin discolorationIMG_6712.jpgIMG_6711.jpg

My Experience with the product:-

I am quite impressed with this product. The packaging of this serum is like what you would expect. It comes in a dark-colored glass bottle with a glass drop dispenser. This packaging is perfect as vitamin C gets destroyed when kept in sunlight and plastic.

Since I have entered my late 20’s I have become very conscious of my skin. My skin has started showing all the signs of aging and  honestly this is scary. Therefore I have shifted my skin care regimen around anti aging products. The thing that I like the most about this product is that it is odorless and colorless. The serum is very lightweight in consistency and not at all sticky. This water based serum can be mixed with your moisturizer, BB creams or foundations. I have been using it for more than 2 weeks now and have not noticed any side effects like breakouts.

Pros:-

  • Anti aging
  • Lightweight
  • Odorless
  • colourless
  • skin brightening and lightning
  • Paraben free
  • Sulphates free
  • Made of natural ingredients
  • Cruelty free
  • No mineral oils and petroleum
  • No chemicals

Cons:-

  • ExpensiveIMG_6701.jpg

Now for the part that is going to make you happy. I am giving away one of the Vitamin C serum to one of my lucky followers. Here are the rules for the giveaway.

The Tea Tree Clarifying Facial Gel is a clear gel that smells strongly of tea tree, neem, aloe vera and other herbal ingredients. The smell is very refreshing.

Firstly lets talk about the skin problems that I was facing before I started using this product. My acne and acne scars were out of control. It was like I had hit puberty all over again 😦

I started using the gel along with Inatur Oil control face wash and it is doing wonders to my skin. My acne has reduced significantly and my acne spots are becoming lighter. Also my skin has started glowing. The gel gets absorbed quickly and does not feel sticky on my skin. My skin has been feeling hydrated and smoother since I have started using this Tea tree Face gel. The tea tree oil cures acne and also cures the scars created by them.IMG_6282.JPG

Aloe Vera and Skin Care- Benefits, Tips, DIYs and Giveaway

Aloe Vera is a very huge part of the flora of Rajasthan ( The desert state of India). We consume Aloe Vera in many forms here. It is used raw in curing many skin care diseases and is consumed in the form of a curry to cure many systematic diseases. The juice of this particular cactus is good for both, your skin and internal organs.

In this post I am going to talk about the benefits Aloe Vera has on our skin. I will also state some of my home remedies for skin and hair care. At the end of the post is a giveaway for all the people crazy about skin care products.

Aloe Vera and Skin Care:-

Known as the ‘Plant of Immortality’ by the ancient Egyptians this plant of the Asphodelaceae family has been used as a medicinal plants for centuries. It is a cactus and is therefore very common in the deserts.

How-To-Use-Aloe-Vera-For-Hair

Here are some benefits and DIY tips regarding the use of Aloe Vera:-

  1. To treat Sunburns:-

Aloe Vera gel when applied over the effected area helps in restoring the damaged epithelium and moisturizes the skin helping it heal faster.

TIP– chop open a leaf of Aloe Vera and collect the gel in a small container. Add few drops of distilled rose-water to the gel and apply on the skin for protection from the sun.

2. Improves digestion:-

Many digestive disorders are known to cause acne and patchy skin. Aloe Vera is said to regulate your digestive system. It is also said to heal gastric ulcers. In Ayurveda it is also prescribed for arthritis and rheumatism.

TIP- To help cure arthritis and Rheumatism drink some Aloe Vera juice daily. Another helpful tip is to chew pieces of the fresh leaf to cure internal diseases.

3. Anti Aging effects:-

With age our skin looses its elasticity and starts to sag, leaving behind fine lines and wrinkles. Aloe Vera contains antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin C and E all of which help keep the skin hydrated and firm.

TIP- Cut a fresh leaf of Aloe Vera and rub the sap on your washed and cleaned face before going to bed every night for best results.

4. Natural Moisturizer:-

Aloe Vera moisturizes the skin by seeping deep in the layers of epithelium, therefore the skin doesn’t feel greasy.

TIP- Men can use Aloe Vera gel as an aftershave treatment as its healing properties can treat small cuts caused by shaving. Women should apply some Aloe Vera gel before applying your makeup, as it prevents the skin from drying.

5. Treating Acne:-

Aloe vera gel contains hormones that provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells which helps in natural healing of skin without any scarring. Aloe is soothing and can help in skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, while helping the skin to heal more rapidly. Additionally, in Ayurvedic medicine, Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.

6. Hair growth:-

Aloe Vera contains a lot of vitamins and minerals, the deficiency of what is a huge cause of hair fall. Use aloe vera gel to treat the areas of the scalp that are going bald. Aloe vera contains an enzyme that helps promote new hair growth for some people. The gel can be applied directly to the scalp, as aloe vera typically has no side effects.

TIP- Make an aloe Vera shampoo. When combined with wheat germ oil and coconut milk, aloe Vera gel makes a shampoo to promote hair growth. Use the shampoo as often as you wash your hair.

7. For your eyelashes:-

Everyone wants thick, dense, long eyelashes. The huge amount of minerals in Aloe Vera help keep the lashes long and dense.

TIP- Mix some Aloe Vera gel with a tea-spoon of black castor oil. Store it in a small container and apply it at the roots of your lashes everyday before going off to bed.aloe-vera-gel-on-wooden-spoon-1

GIVEAWAY

A lot of brands have taken advantage the benefits of Aloe Vera by including it in their products. Aloe Vera gel is the most important and most used form. I am giving away Aloe Derma Hydrating Gel by O3+.

MARCH FAVOURITES 2017!!

HOLA,

With the temperatures rising suddenly, march turned out to be the most uncomfortable month ever. But there are a few good things that came out of the month of march. Skin care and makeup excites me and I love sharing my passion with you guys.

Here are a few of the products that I really enjoyed this month. I hope you will try these too and share your thoughts with me.

  1. LANCOME Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate:-

As soon as we girls hit our mid twenties, the anti aging battle begins. When it comes to high end brands, LANCOME has always been my favourite. I trust their products and have never been afraid to try them. Advanced Genifique boosts signs of youthfulness and helps skin’s recovery during the day and night.

the serum is suitable for all skin types for women of multiple ethnicities and ages. I have been using the concentrate for about an year now and have absolutely been loving it. It is expensive (Rs 5,982.39/- for 30 ml) but worth every penny.

To  read a complete review of this product click here.wp-1464847174235.jpgwp-1464845025288.jpg2. Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Bold Metals Collection, Essentials Brush Kit, 3 Brushes set:-

Everyone is aware that Real Techniques makes the best affordable makeup tools. Their Bold Metals collection is amazing. The synthetic bristles are super soft and compactly packed, they look great and do an amazing job.

The bold collection is quite expensive as compared to the other makeup brushes by Real Techniques Sam and Nic collection but trust me, they are worth stretching your wallet a little bit more. They  look beautiful  and do a great job of making you look beautiful 🙂IMG_2235.JPGIMG_2236.JPG

3. Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss- shade 30:-

For their price these lipsticks really surprised me. The KateXRimmel collection is just what we all love. Its affordable, the packaging is chic and the quality is amazing.

I love berry shades so it will not come as a surprise when I  say my favourite LAsting Finish lipstick By Kate is the shade 30. Its a deep berry shade with glossy finish. The lipstick lasts for a good 7-8  hours without you having to touch up and is prices at just Rs275.

They are also easily available in India on Nykaa.IMG_2210IMG_2213.JPGIMG_2216.JPGIMG_2211.JPG

4. Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation:-

This is my  favourite foundation ever. I  have used many high end foundations but The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation is just what I always go back to. If you have this, you do not have to spend all that extra cash for flawless coverage.

Priced at just around Rs 700 for 30 ml of product, this is a medium coverage foundation is just the best. It comes with SPF 20 for sun protection. If you wear makeup daily I would seriously urge you to try this affordable but amazing product.IMG_2221.JPGIMG_2222.JPG

5. Aryanveda Anti Wrinkle Gel Treatment Pen:-

I bought this product from the Nykaa Christmas sale and have been using it since then. I must say that Aryanveda is one skincare brand that I have really grown fond of. I have tried 6 different products from Aryanveda and have loved each and everyone of them.

With the stressful life and unhealthy diet it is quite easy to for your skin to age faster than you. On one of my skin care examinations my Skin care specialist pointed out the wrinkles being formed around my eyes. Well that wasn’t easy to see and was sad to notice how badly I had been ignoring my skin.

After using the Anti Wrinkle Gel  by Aryanveda for 4 months, I can confidently say that it does work. It has tightened the skin around my eyes and mouth and buying it is also not am hassle.

It is  priced at Rs 250 on Nykaa.068IMG_2206.JPG

6. Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner:-

The Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner was an impulse buy as I was just looking for a nude lip liner. This lip liner helps keep your lipstick in place and prevents it from smudging. It contains a bit of glitter and i don’t usually like glitter on my lips but the shade 150 STELLAR PINK looks quite stunning with a bit of glitter.

The shade is nude so it looks can easily be covered up with any other lip color.

To buy this same lip liner click here.IMG_2224.JPGIMG_2225.JPGIMG_2227.JPG

7. TONI & GUY heat protection mist:-

I hate boring and the thing that is capable of getting boring the fastest is you hair. I try a lot of new hairstyles and most of them require me using hair styling tools. Constant exposure to heat can take a heavy toll on the quality of your hair, so heat protection is a must.

Toni & Guy launched their hair products after their success in the salon business. Their heat protection mist is my most used product followed by their textured sea salt spray. The 150 ml spray bottle comes with very attractive packaging. The locking mechanism is super cool and helps the liquid from spilling out.

Buy this spray by clicking here.IMG_2209.JPGIMG_2219.JPG

These are my favs for March. Hope you will try them and enjoy them ass much as I did. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products.

Do keep in touch through Instagram and Facebook. Email me your suggestions at barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

Hope you guys have an amazing new month.

My envy box Review- October, 2016- Third Anniversary edition!!

I was desperately waiting for my October envy box as it was the anniversary edition and I was to receive extra 3 products. So, you can imagine my excitement when it finally showed up on my door steps. This month, My Envy Box turns three. Without further ado let’s take a look at the products that I received in my birthday month’s box.

About My Envy Box (Beauty Box Subscription):-

It is a monthly subscription service in which you receive 4 or more luxury full size and sample size beauty and makeup products. My envy box is available at different prices.

  • 1 month box- INR 850
  • 3 months box- INR 2250
  • 6 months box- INR 4350

You can order your own envy box from- http://www.myenvybox.com/

 

October 2016 3rd Anniversary My Envy Box

This month’s box is plain white in color with the envy box logo in the center and turns three printed underneath. The reason why the box is plain is because there is a color me contest going on where in you have to do something fun and creative on the box in order to win loads of prizes.

Products received:-

1.      AYCA- Jasmine Body Wash:- (100ml for INR 438/-)

This is a mild, foaming gel cleanser for all skin types. It’s a natural product made from coconut derivatives. Coconut is said to be very nourishing for your skin and it also helps break down makeup. Therefore I am excited to try it out and see how it works out.

2.      Forest Essentials- Facial Cleansing Paste:- (15g for INR 925/-)

Forest essential is one of my favorite brands. This cleansing paste contains ingredients like Almonds, Pistachio, fresh Turmeric, Buttermilk, Floral waters, organic Honey and fresh Aloe leaf juice.

3.      Vert- Loose Powder:- (10g for INR 1250/-)

This is the only makeup product in the box. It is a handmade loose powder made out of natural ingredients like rose petals and French clay. This versatile powder can be used as eye shadow, highlighter or a blush.

4.      VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam:- (15ml for INR 230/-)

VICHY is one of the most trusted and most widely used skin care brand. This cleansing foam leaves the skin feeling refreshed, flawless, luminous and radiant.

5.      Nertia- Nail Art :- (1 pack for INR 80/-)

These are basically nail stickers that are being marketed as dry nail polish that lasts up to 7 days.

GIFT PRODUCTS IN THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

As this was the third year anniversary box I also received 3 extra sample sized products which are as follows:

1.      BABOR – HSR lifting:-

This is an anti aging extra firming cream.

2.      Skin Yoga- Neem Purifier:-

This is a post workout anti bacterial body purifier.

3.      BIODERMA- Photoderm AKN Mat SPF 30:-

This is a sunscreen lotion sample for oily skin.

MY VIEWS OF THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

There was a lot of anticipation regarding this month’s box as we were told in the emails that October envy box will be full of surprises and we will receive 8 products in the box.

Also I am quite excited about the COLOUR ME CONTEST. We basically have to be creative and color the white box to stand a chance to win products worth Rs 3000/-.

IMG_1787.JPG

Talking about the products I am extremely excited about trying the Forest Essentials Facial Cleansing Paste, Vert Loose Powder and VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam. The AYCA Jasmine Body Wash smells amazing. I am a bit skeptical about Nertia nail art as the idea of a nail sticker lasting 7 days does not sound right to me.

About the extra 3 products BABOR HSR lifting cream is the most necessary thing for me as I just entered my late twenties a few days ago. Skin Yoga products have never disappointed me and I am sure this won’t disappoint me too. The Bioderma sunscreen was no surprise to me as I have literally received it in all my boxes.

To conclude the October My Envy Box is something you cannot afford to miss. It is just spectacular.

My views on this month’s box:-
I was very excited for this month’s box as they were mixing up things this month. They included a piece of jewellery and I quite like the coin necklace in my box. I have been having a lot of hair fall issues this monsoon and was excited to recieve the Rustic Art Aloe Shampoo. The Oriflame Illuskin Blush is very pigmented and looks amazing.
The Fuschia Anti aging night cream smells awful though and I’m scared to get it anywhere near my face. I have used Fuschia products earlier and have really liked them. The Biobloom orange lip balm also doesn’t excite me. It feels like a petroleum jelly that only stays on your lips for few minutes.

Overall I’m very satisfied with my GloBox subscription service and will definitely renew my subscription.

Hope you found my review helpful. If so , don’t forget to follow my blogand leave a comment telling me about your favourite beauty subscription service.
