Mama Earth C3 face Mask- Charcoal, Coffee & Clay face mask

Hey Guys,

It is an era of face masks. Everyone is ready to experiment and try with new skin care techniques. With so many variants and brands in the market, it’s so hard to choose the right one. Today I am going to help make your life easier and your skin brighter.

Mama Earth is a fantastic brand that concentrates on the health, welfare and beauty of both moms and babies. MAMAEARTH is one brand that helps in protecting you and your babies with safe, toxin-free, international standard products. In today’s post I will tell you about the benefits of The C3 mask by mama Earth. IMG_6207.JPG

About MamaEarth C3 Mask:-

C3 stands for Charcoal, Coffee and Clay.  After pregnancy your skin can lose their brightness, increase blemishes, increase pigmentation in skin. This mask is targeted at getting your glowing skin back. It also claims to reduce pigmentation of the skin, thereby giving you flawless skin. Charcoal helps with acne, Coffee stimulates the blood flow and removes toxins thereby smoothing away blemishes. Papaya, Mulberry & other fruit extracts improve skin elasticity and minimize the appearance of pores.

Ingredients:-IMG_6567

Price:-

Rs 599 for a 100 ml tub. You can buy the product from mamaearth.in, Amazon, Nykaa, Flipkart.

Directions to use:-

Apply a thick layer on the face and upper part of the neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on to dry for 10 – 15 minutes. Remove the mask first by gently rubbing in circular motions for an overall exfoliation. Wash any excess with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Recommended to use twice a week and to follow with your favorite moisturizer.

My Experience with the MamaEarth C3 Mask:-IMG_6211.JPGIMG_6213.JPGIMG_6218.JPGIMG_6220.JPG

The very first reason why I was attracted and impressed by this brand is their focus on the welfare of mothers and their babies. The Mask is an amazing product. The three main ingredients ( charcoal, clay, coffee) go perfectly well with each other.

The packaging is very secure as the mask comes in a plastic tub with a screw top cap and spill proof seal. The texture of the mask is thick and earthy, It smells of coffee and clay. The claims that are absolutely true about this mask are that this mask is good at exfoliation, it does makes your face looking fresh and bright. The face mask also claims to reduce pigmentation and lighten dark spots but I did not see my dark spots lightening even after using the mask for more than a month.

Pros:-

  • 100% toxin free
  • Full of fruit extracts – mulberry, cucumber, and papaya
  • Brightens skin tone
  • Reduces inflammations like redness, pimples and acne
  • Good quantity for a decent price
  • Does great exfoliation removes dead cells
  • Natural product
  • Especially designed for mothers

Cons:-

  • A bit drying
  • Bulky packaging
  • Doesn’t reduce dark spots or pigmentation

I hope you find this review helpful. This product was sent to me in a PR package but this review is absolutely honest. I will soon be back with another post. Until then please follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Love – Barkha

I love the coconut oil and almond oil. I have incorporated the night cream and the olive oil in my daily skin care routines. I would definitely continue using most of these products once winters are over.

Another good thing about this box is the price. There is no way in hell that you could buy all these amazing products for 1999. It’s so affordable. I just love this box would suggest people to try it.

Euphorbia box- Review

I love trying out beauty boxes and I am always on a lookout for new and affordable ones.

In the month of October I saw a few of my friends review a new box that was super affordable and with an impressive selection of products in the October box.

So I placed order for the box, they were sold out for the October month and I just got my first box in November.

This blog is to review the Euphorbia box.

IMG_6151.JPG

Here is a little bit about the box from their website. Euphorbia box is a small, family-owned start-up company. The box is designed to help users explore the world of beauty & skin care products and discover their favorite products in a convenient, effortless and affordable way.

Lets take a look November’s Euphorbia Box-

Packaging-

It is a simple carboard box with Euphorbia box written in blue with the products nicely bubble wrapped inside.

I like the simplicity of the packaging.IMG_6155.JPGIMG_6181.JPG

Price-

I got this box at the launching price of Rs 199. This months box is now available for Rs 248IMG_6165

Products-IMG_6162.JPG

1. Ang-Tatva Kaya Tatva Scrub-off (Rs 345 for 75g)

This herbal scrub looks interesting and I look forward to trying this product, however I am surprised that manufacturing date is not mentioned on this product. It has a very strong scent of turmeric but I don’t mind that.IMG_6167.JPGIMG_6171.JPG

2. HM Have More Dry Matte Nail Polish (Rs 299)

From the packaging the nail paint does not look very expensive as the print and the bottle looks cheap so I am bit surprised that the product retails for Rs 299. The colour is red and I am not too excited about the product.IMG_6173.JPG

3. BioBloom Face Wash (Rs 160 for 30ml)

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting any sample products in the box as there were none in he October box. This sample size product is paraben ans sulphate free which is definitely a good thing but, it is too tiny to impress me.IMG_6176.JPG

4. Duft Facial Wipes (Rs 79 for 25wipes)

They are alcohol and paraben free wipes and I can’t complain about them.IMG_6179.JPG

5. Mama Earth Sunscreen SPF 20+ (sample size of 7ml)

This was a bummer. This sample size product is for children of age 0-5 years so not useful for me at all. I mean I am sure not all the people ordering this box are people with children so, including this tiny sample as a product is just ridiculous. IMG_6178.JPG

My verdict

At this time I am just scared because I ordered a 3 months subscription and I am dreading the next two month’s boxes. Overall I am disappointed with the selection of products available in the November box especially when I compare it with the impressive product range that were available in the month of October. This month’s box was just boring. It just failed in every aspect possible. I am struggling to call the box average. I hope the curators can make the December box full of surprises.

Hope you found this review helpful. Please leaves your thoughts about the box in the comments below.

I always love hearing from you guys and you can get in touch with me by emailing me on barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour- Fashion Legacy- Review and Swatches

Hey Guys,

Sometime back I had posted a picture of me on Instagram and Facebook, my lipstick gained a lot of attention! So I decided to dedicate one post to the much talked about lipstick. The lipstick I am talking about is my go to RED lipstick- MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in the shade FASHION LEGACY. Lets take a closer look at the lipstick.PSX_20170809_173705

THE PACKAGING:-

The packaging like every MAC product ; very chic. This is a liquid  lipstick therefore it doesn’t come in the signature black capsuled packaging. It comes in a beautiful see through plastic packaging. The cap of the lipstick is the classic black MAC packaging with MAC printed in silver.IMG_6144.JPGIMG_6145.JPG

PRICE:-

INR 1800

THE APPLICATOR:-

The applicator is attached to this beautiful transparent wand. This sponge applicator is soft. As the applicator wand is short, it helps in precise application.IMG_6148.JPG

PIGMENTATION :-

This lipstick is very pigmented. A single swipe is sufficient to cover your lips completely. Amazing pigmentation makes it difficult to get the lipstick off though.IMG_20171011_154007_729.jpg

TEXTURE:-

The lipstick is quite thick and creamy, certainly not a lightweight translucent texture. It sets quickly to a totally matte finish.

STAYING POWER:-

Lipstick stays on your lips for as long as you want but it does get dry and starts cracking in around 5 hours. It cracks  up in the middle and the powder starts settling on the borders of your lips. So, you do need to touch it up in every 4-5 hours.

SWATCHES:-PSX_20171024_115521PSX_20171024_115512.jpg

PROS:-

  1. Highly pigmented
  2. Chic packaging
  3. Excellent quality
  4. Good staying power
  5. Absolutely matte

CONS:-

  1. Expensive
  2. Needs touching up
  3. Starts cracking and drying after a few hours

RATING:-

3.8/5

Hope you found  this blog post helpful. I will soon be back with another post. Till then stay connected with me through Instagram and Facebook.

Smells good!! – Review of my favourite Body Mists

Hi Ya’ll,

What does summer remind you of? If your answer is loads of sweat and foul body odor, you are at the right place.
I feel refreshing when I use body mist, especially in this summer heat. It helps mask our sweaty humanly scent and also leaves us feeling cool. Over the past few months I have tried many body mists.
So I decided to write a blog about these body mists and sharing details of which ones I like the best and why.

IMG_5964.JPGPSX_20170718_233417.jpgIMG_5963.JPG

1. Moringa body mist by The Body Shop –

This was the first body mist that I ever bought. The subtle, delicate fresh floral smell of the body mist is refreshing, especially when used early morning after shower. I love that it does not have a sweet smell or an alcoholic scent to it. The fragrance lasts for 1-2 hours, there is a light hint of smell for longer period of time.
Recommended for those who like subtle smell based body mist.
Now that we have covered the smell of the body mist, here are some details about packaging – It comes in a transparent glass bottle so try not to drop it :). The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality and works properly.

100 ml bottle is priced for 795 Rs
Rating 4.5 on 5img_5985.jpgIMG_5986.JPG

2. Beautiful day body mist by Natural Bath & Body –

It has a sweet floral smell with a cooling sensation. I do wish that the smell would last longer (at best the smell lasts for an hour).
Packaging– It comes in plastic bottle. I had received a sample size product in my fab bag. The nozzle for spraying came off within a few days.

200 ml for 325 Rs
Rating 2.5 on 5img_6000.jpgimg_6001.jpg

3. Oriental body mist by Streax –

I wanted to compare economical body mist to the other options in the market. So I bought this one as it had really good reviews from customers on Amazon.
As name suggests, it has oriental smell (unique blend of warmth and sensuality). I find the smell pleasant. I could smell hints of musk, vanilla and jasmine in the body mist, because of which I use it as a deodorant.
Those who like oriental smell should give it a try.
The smell lasts for 2-3 hrs.
Packaging- The body mist comes in purple plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of good quality.

100 ml for 188 Rs
Rating 3 on 5IMG_6010.JPGIMG_6014.JPG

4. Nargis body mist by Forest Essentials –

This is my favourite one. Cooling sensation when you apply the body mist is amazing. The body mist has a powering sweet and fresh smell of Nargis. This feminine body mist is recommended for ladies who love refreshing strong floral scent and the smell is long-lasting. The only thing bad about this product is that it is expensive.
Packaging -The bottle comes in a transparent plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality.

100 ml for 1895 Rs
Rating 5 on 5IMG_5990.JPGIMG_5994.JPG

5. Forever 16 body mist by NewU –

The body mist captures a 16-year-old girl’s spirit (pun intended!).
It has a sweet fruity smell. It is perfect for teenage girls or for those who are young at heart. The only problem is the sticky sensation left behind when you apply the mist.
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs
Rating 3 on 5img_5979.jpgIMG_5984.JPGIMG_5983.JPG

6. Luscious Bloom body mist by NewU –

The body mist is perfect for day-to-day use with its combination of musky and floral fragrance.
I like the fact that the smell is not overpowering. Again the initial sticky sensation when applying the body mist may be unpleasant to some (the sensation fades away).
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs
Rating 4 on 5img_5977.jpgIMG_5971.JPG

Greenberry Organics Mudash 3 in 1- Mask, Scrub and Cleanser- Review

Hey Guys,

Today I am talking about  a product that has great multitasking capabilities. It’s the monsoon season and we need products like this for our skin care. Those rain drops do make our heart happy but our skin is a sensitive topic. The Mudash 3 in 1 by Greenberry organics is a mask, scrub and cleanser all in 1. BeautyPlus_20170702102637_save.jpg

About Greenberry Organics (from their website):-

At Greenberry organics we are striving hard to make a difference among standard and conventional production methods filled with irregularities, animal abuse and unfair remuneration.

About Mudash 3 in 1:-

IMG_5898.JPG

It’s a mask, scrub and cleanser in one. It contains 100% natural ingredients. If your skin is tired and dull this is your product. It is a real  jar of happiness. Also being paraben and sulphate free it is very skin friendly.

Well, now is that savoury moment. Do you also use the words “problem” and “skin” in the same sentence and that too with a negative tone! It’s time we change that with our 3 in 1 formula that has cleanser, scrubber and mask packed in one. The biggest WOW factor use it daily as a cleanser, twice as a scrubber or right before those happening weekends as a mask and your skin will thank you every minute for this super pampering care. Product is free from Silicons, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, DEA, TEA, Phthalates, Phosphates, Artificial fillers.

Price and Quantity :-

Rs 595 for 100 Gms

Ingredients:-

Aqua Kaolin, China Clay, Zinc Oxide, Bentonite Powder, Turmeric Powder, Isopropyl Myristate, Kaolin Clay , Glycerine , Aqua , Aloe Vera Extracts , Activated Charcoal, Phenoxy Ethanol , Xanthan Gum, Tea Tree Extracts, Jojoba oil, Clove oil, Vitamin C, Fragrance, Vitamin E.IMG_5877.JPGimg_5888.jpg

How To Apply:-

Use the product on a slightly damp face as a mask, apply all over the face liberally (Avoid direct contact with eyes, mouth and nostrils). Let the product stay for 10-15 minutes. Once the product dries out, slightly damp the face with Greenberry Organics Miracle Face Mist or with normal cold water. Wash  the product off the face gently and slowly. Feel the difference.IMG_5885.JPGIMG_5882.JPGIMG_5889.JPG

My experience with Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face care :-

It comes in a good quality see through plastic jar. It has double lid protection, a black cap followed with a transparent cover.

The colour of the product is grey and the texture is thick and granular. It’s smell is very pleasant, that of tea tree extracts.

The monsoon season can clog your pores and do a lot of harm to that gorgeous skin. This product is a mask, cleanser and scrub in one. The tree tea extracts are excellent anti bacterial agents and the activated charcoal helps detoxify your skin. Clay also helps your skin from sagging ( and no one wants their skin to drop down with the rain drops). The granules are just of the right size to act as scrub. It helps remove all the dead and flaky skin.

Over  using the product (More than twice a week) or using a lot of quantity can cause your skin to dry out. The product has me in love with it mainly coz it worked just fine without causing any breakouts. 🙂

PROS:-

  • Nice packaging
  • Works great as a scrub, cleanser and mask
  • Cruelty free
  • Sls and paraben free
  • Made from natural ingredients
  • Removes all dead skin
  • detoxifies the skin
  • Priced well for the quantity
  • Makes the soft and supple
  • smells great

CONS:-

  • Using a lot of quantity and using it for more than 3 minutes can dry out your skin

In conclusion I love this product and am very glad to share it with my family.

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.

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.

February favourites 2017

Hey Everyone,

Its the beginning of a new month, that means its time for me to share my absolute favourite products of the previous month 🙂

February was a month of new launches. A lot of brands released some amazing products. So, makeup and skin care departments is stocked with a great deal of stuff to try on.

The best thing about all the products mentioned below is that they are very affordable and easily available.2017-03-06_17.32.52.jpg

1.PAC Cosmetics Big Eyes Magical Mascara :-

This dual wand mascara has become my current obsession. I am addicted to it. The mascara comes with 2 wands on its either ends. One is a normal thick wand, which is resembles the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. The other wand is a thin and perfect for your lower lash line.

Its great to see these Indian brands coming up with such good quality and affordable makeup. PAC cosmetics has really surprised me their recent launches and I am looking forward to try them all.img_2151IMG_2161.JPG

2. Pins and Patches from Ginger:-

In my previous blog post I talked about the recent trend of pins, patches, badges and brooches. Lifestyle stores included many sets of pins and patches in their latest collection and of course a bought quite a few of them. 🙂

These pins are marked at the price of Rs 199 for a set of three. Its always cool to mix and match them to create your own style and who does not want to stay on trend.img_2122

3. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose water:-

I have been using this skin care delight for a few months now.  Rose water is the best natural toner known to mankind. Kama Ayurveda very cleverly have taken advantage of this fact and placed some distilled rose water in a spray on bottle.

Another great thing about this product is that it comes in a travel size bottle. Whenever you feel fatigued just spray on some rose water and you will feel refreshed instantly. Trust me guys, I have tried it and it works. I also mix it with my face pack for great results.IMG_2125.JPGIMG_2130.JPG

4. L.A girl Pro conceal HD high definition concealer:-

OH MY GOD. This is  the best concealer ever. This is not one of those hyped products that turn out to be good for nothing. All the beauty gurus swear about it.

This concealer has a brush at the end which makes the application and blending very easy.  It is Crease-resistant, has opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture.

The best part about it is that its easy available on Nykaa and amazon and is very affordable.IMG_2163.JPGIMG_2170.JPG

5. B Blunt High Definition Curl Defining Leave-In Cream :-

Curling my hair have always been a problem for me. My hair were always a frizzy mess and the curls never stayed in place. The B Blunt Curl leave-in cream changed it all. It enhances curls & waves and also tames frizz.

The very cute pink bottle with a pump just makes things more attractive and convenient. I have been using this leave-in for the last 2 weeks. The nozzle has a lock system, so it’s travel friendly and does not release a lot of product.IMG_2183.JPGIMG_2189.JPG

6. NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in the shade BLACK CHERRY:-

I remember those times when dark red shades were only for grannies. Now, berries are the bold new thing. This NYX extra creamy lipstick has become my go to favourite. The lipstick lasts for around 12 hours and the formulation is super creamy. IMG_2131.JPGIMG_2132.JPGIMG_2135.JPG
