MY VERDICT-

I was sent this box as a PR sample but the brand gave me my sweet time to test and try the products before writing this post. As all of you know my reviews are absolutely honest and I don’t mind bashing big brands and products if I have a problem with them.

All the products are very impressive. They are all 100% natural products. I did not have any adverse reactions to any of the products. The oils are great. They are absolutely pure and very effective. 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.

I hope you find the review helpful. Don’t forget to stay connected on my social media accounts.

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.

Hope you guys have an amazing new month.

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.
