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:-

This Vya Natural’s Vitamin C serum for face is an anti aging serum with natural ingredients that helps brighten skin tone, hydrate skin, reduce fine lines and pigmentation.

Ingredients:-

IMG_6706.jpg

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

Giveaway:-

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.

  1. Follow @givemewings_barkha and @vyanaturals on Instagram

Winter Care by Himalaya Herbals – Review

Hey people,

himalaya.jpg

I am not a big fan of winters and unfortunately I live in one of the coldest cities of India. The temperatures of Delhi are dropping day after day and my bones are shivering to the core. Winters can make us very lazy hence leading us to take no care of our skin. We start drinking less water, stop moisturizing at least twice a day, get chapped skin and lips, our skin dries up etc.

I received a package of winter skin care from Himalaya Herbals and have been using them this season. Himalaya is one of the most trusted brands in India. Himalaya has amazing herbal products that we all love. So, let’s get talking about the 3 essential products of winter care.BeautyPlus_20180202202604_save-01

1. Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 200ml. This body lotion smells fantastic. I cannot stop using it mainly because of the amazing smell of Cocoa butter. The key ingredients are Cocoa Butter and Wheat Germ Oil. The consistency of the lotion is thick but it’s not at all sticky. The body lotion nourishes and intensely moisturizes your skin. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201235 (1).jpgPSX_20180202_201315.jpg

2. Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream:-

Price: Rs.220/- for 200ml. Himalaya’s Nourishing Skin Cream is a light, non greasy, daily-use cream, which provides all day moisturizing, nourishment and protection. The cream is blended with the extracts of Aloe Vera, Winter Cherry, Indian Kino Tree and Indian Pennywort, which protect your skin from pollution and dry weather, providing nourishment and moisture. I apply this cream on the areas that extremely chapped as its key ingredients Aloe Vera and Winter Cherry have antibacterial and cell regenerative properties. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201418.jpgPSX_20180202_201517.jpgPSX_20180202_201554.jpg

3. Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Care Balm:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 4.5gm. Lip balms are very important for me. Whether it is summers or winters, I can’t live without my lip balm. I absolutely hate that layer of chapped skin on my lips. In winters there is an increased chance of decrease in moisture of the skin leading to chapped lips. This Himalaya strawberry lip balm is a perfect moisturizing lip balm as it is not tinted and has a lot of shine. Strawberry Seed Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, acts as an excellent emollient and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance. Apricot Kernel Oil is a rich source of Vitamin E and an emollient which effectively moisturizes dry and chapped lips. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201700.jpgPSX_20180202_201726.jpgPSX_20180202_201756BeautyPlus_20180202201919_save-01.jpeg

I have been loving these products therefore I decided to share my views with you. Hope you find this helpful. Please leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below. See you soon with another blog post. Until then stay healthy, stay stylish.

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.

Inatur Herbals Oil Control Face Wash- Review

Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a great day!

Skin care is a very important part of our daily routines. I recently migrated from chemical based to all natural products. There are many brands with exciting products in Indian market. So, I decided to use a few myself to battle out my skin problems.

I came across a brand INATUR HERBALS that comprises of a range of natural skin care, hair care and personal care products that are safe on skin and result oriented. I decided to try a few of their products. This post is a review of their Oil Control Face Wash.

PACKAGING:-

It  comes in a green see through tube with light green leaves printed all over it. It has a plastic flip cap that closes tightly. The packaging looks cool and fun. IMG_6193.JPGIMG_6187.JPG

INGREDIENTS:-IMG_6189.JPG

PRICE:-

₹ 160 for 75 ml

₹ 310 for 150 ml

Buy it from here

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:-

Inatur’s oil control face wash is enriched with Neem- that has anti-bacterial properties, helps in controlling pimples & acne and their recurrence. Clove oil- that prevents acne and kills infections, Basil- detoxifies the skin, improves the skin tone & prevents blackheads and Miliglobules- that provide gentle exfoliation.

It helps to open clogged pores, eliminates impurities and excess oil and also prevents occurrence of pimples.

For best results, use it twice daily- in the morning and at the end of the day.IMG_6185

It is ideal for Oily /Acne-prone skin.

DIRECTIONS TO USE:-

Moisten face, apply a small quantity of the face wash and gently work up lather in a circular motion. Wash off with water and pat dry. Use twice a day- in the morning and before going to bed for best results.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH INATUR HERBALS OIL CONTROL FACE WASH :-

The face wash looks like a clear gel with blue beads or miliglobules that provide gentle exfoliation. The face wash smells of some herbal ingredients. It is refreshing. I have a combination skin that tends to break out a lot in winters. This face wash contains tea tree oil which prevents pimples. Basil, clove, neem and turmeric have antiseptic and healing properties. The face wash definitely washed away all the oil from my face and prevented it from coming back for at least 5 hours. The only drawback is that it barely did anything for my blackheads. Also I am a huge fan of bubbles and being a soap free face wash this product does not lather well.IMG_6237.JPG

PROS:-

  • Easily available
  • Reasonably priced
  • Removes excess oil from the face
  • Smells good
  • Refreshes dull skin
  • 100% natural and cruelty free
  • Available in travel sizes
  • Sulphate free

CONS:-

  • Not useful for all skin types (available for normal to oily skin)

WILL I EVER USE THIS FACE WASH AGAIN:-

Definitely YES!! This is one of the few products that actually stands true to its claims. Also its a sulphate free, 100% natural product and is not at all harsh on my skin.

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

You can also keep in touch with me through my Instagram and Facebook accounts.

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.
