My favorites from Deborah Milano

1. Deborah Milano Love My Lashes Mascara Volume:-

I love mascaras. They are my lifeline, I can’t walk out of my house without slapping some mascara on. This mascara does wonders for my lashes. It is a voluminous mascara and will make your lashes look bigger and more glamorous. I have a lot of black mascaras and was getting bored with them so, tried this brown one and realised how brown compliments my skin tone better than the black one.

It comes enriched with natural and synthetic and acacia gum for proper adhesion. Furthermore, the wavy bristle tips help in even distribution. It is priced at Rs 450.

Wavy Bristle Tip

2. Deborah Milano Extra LipStick:-

We have all tried to achieve the perfect 3 D ombre lips and have failed  many times. This limited edition lipstick was designed to create the ultra cool trend. It comes in 12 shades and I am the proud owner of the shade number 10 Rouge Noir.

The lipstick comes with a sponge tip applicator which helps produces a three-dimensional matte look. It is a very pigmented lipstick in matte texture. Enriched with minerals and plant-based waxes, the advanced formula glides on easily and precisely, and will take you through the whole day. It is Priced at Rs 950

3. Deborah Milano 24 Ore  long-lasting lip pencil:-

Lip pencils are a must have for every women. I find lip pencils better than lipsticks as they are more handy and easier to use. The Deborah Milano 24ORE Long Lasting Lip Pencil comes in a retractable design. It is a non transferable, smudge-proof lip color.

These lip pencils come in 8 shades. I am going to swatch number 02 (Vivid Red) and number 04 (Pink Cyclamen) for you. They are priced at Rs 595 each.

HIMALAYA PUREHANDS HAND SANITIZER- REVIEW

Hey guys,

We live amongst the most unwanted germs. It is just impossible to avoid them but we can kill them before we use our hands for any important thing like meals.

The obsession of hygiene comes from the fact that I am a doctor and I always keep a sanitizer handy.  Hand sanitizers have made our life very convenient when there is no water or soap available.

Himalaya Herbals has a huge range of hand sanatizers in various flavors and various sizes. I have used 4 of their flavours:-

  • Green Apple
  • Strawberry
  • Litchi
  • Lemonwp-1527933413511..jpg

Key ingredients:

  • Hrivera is a strongly aromatic herb, which has antibacterial, deodorizing and cooling properties. It also softens hands.
  • Coriander is derived from the oil of a herb called Oil Coriandrol. The fruits of the herb possess antimicrobial and astringent properties.
  • Lime is a rich source of vitamin C. It protects the skin from oxidative damage and helps prevent itching. The oil of lemon warms the skin when applied externally. The juice also has bactericidal and astringent properties.
  • Ushira is an astringent and antibacterial herb. When applied externally, it removes excess heat from the body and provides a cooling effect.
  • Neem extracts possess antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. The tree stem, root and bark have astringent, tonic and antiperiodic properties. Neem is used to treat skin diseases.

Directions for use:

Squeeze approximately 0.5 ml (coin-sized drop) of the gel on your palms. Rub well over the palms, back of hands, fingernails and grooves briskly, until dry. No water is required after use.

PureHands is absolutely safe for regular use. It contains moisturizer that prevent skin irritation and dryness. The product has been clinically tested, and its safety and efficacy is proven.

Price:

₹175 for 250 mlwp-1527933447699..jpgwp-1527933518011..jpgwp-1527933536424..jpgwp-1527933560567..jpg

My experience:

I have tried a lot of hand sanatizers and have had one of the best experience with Himalaya PureHands. A little quantity ( just a drop) is more than enough for both hands. The product comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap.

The fact that it comes in many flavors is very attractive. It is an effective, herbal, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which kills 99.9% of germs, prevents infection, and ensures total hand hygiene. These sanatizers are more effective than soaps as they kill more bacteria and germs. I love that we can choose the fragrance that we like the most.

You can buy these hand sanatizers from amazon, nykaa, flipkart or your local skin care or medical stores.

Don’t forget to like and subscribe to my blog. Also stay connected on Instagram and Facebook.

I will see you soon with a lot of exciting posts.

TOPO PAW PAW Ointment- Review

Hey Guys,

You must be wondering what the hell is a Paw Paw ointment? Well I was wondering the same thing till a few days ago when my dear friend SpexySrish gifted me TOPO’s Paw Paw Ointment. Basically this is Australia’s cult product. For over 100 years every Australian has been slapping this ointment on their lips.

What is a Paw Paw Ointment?

A Paw paw ointment is made of a few ingredients like Petrolatum, Carica Papaya(papaws) Fruit Extract, Beeswax and Potassium Sorbate.

The active ingredient is created by using a fermentation process to concentrate the enzymes from Australian papaws, rather than using a processed papaw powder from overseas. The freshly fermented papaw has healing properties which are very potent and has to be carefully balanced or it will be too strong for human use. The papaw is used to draw out impurities and has antiseptic qualities, while the petroleum jelly helps to heal.IMG_6680.jpgIMG_6685.jpg

Controversies surrounding Paw Paw Ointment:-

Many people believe the paw paw ointment to be a glorified and expensive petroleum jelly. There have been so many blog posts claiming to expose the truth about paw paw ointment but still, this ointment continues to be the most consumed product in Australia.

My experience:-

After using the TOPO Paw paw ointment for a few weeks I have found it helpful in various ways. It does help heal chapped lips and in addition to that is also good for insect bites and rashes. Like petroleum jelly it is not that greasy and keeps your lips moisturized for much longer.

This ointment is only available in Australia, so the next time you happen to travel to Australia don’t forget to pick one of these for yourself. IMG_6682IMG_6689.jpgIMG_6692.jpg

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.

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.
