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 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. ūüôā

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 ūüôāIMG_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.

Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

screenshot_2016-04-14-18-39-59-1

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

So, I hope this post helps you embrace and own this trend.

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram. Its always great to stay in touch with all of you.

Email me your suggestions and queries- barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

I have a lot of new products that I have been loving right now and will be soon sharing my views with you.

Till then, stay trendy and stay stylish.

Jaquline USA is a brand that excel in their nail care range and nail paints. Recently Jaquline USA just launched a great range of products in India. They are available online on http://www.newu.in and NewU stores all over the country. In India we have a wide care of nail decor things but nail care is largely neglected, therefore its exciting to see that finally we will have a great range of affordable nail care products to explore. The various products include nail growth oil, instant nail hardener, complete nail treatment, insta-dry polish, double use- top and base coat, peel off glitter base, nail nutrition, nail strengthener, ridge filler and bright look.

In this post I will be talking about two of the products:- Double use-Top & Base Coat and Peel off glitter base.161.JPG183.JPG

DOUBLE USE- TOP & BASE COAT

Performance-

Base Coat Protection-

  • Nail Surface is shielded with a smooth coating that grips nail color for longer lasting results.
  • Nail plate is protected from yellowing and stains.

Top Coat protection-

  • Nail color is locked in a mirror shield that leverages gloss to an opulent level.
  • Manicure wear is prolonged and efficiently protected against chipping.
  • The color is refreshed , boosted and preserved over time.

Ingredients-

Buyl  acetate,  ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose, isopropyl alcohol, adipicacid/neopentyl glycol/trimellitic co polymer, acetyl tributyl citrate, styrene/acrylates copolymer, polyvinyl butyral, n-butyl alcohol, benzophenone-3, D&C voilet 2

Price-

Rs 249/-

How to use it-

As a Base coat– Apply a coat of a the product on your bare nails just before applying the nail paint. This protects staining of your nails and helps the nail paint last longer.

As a Top Coat– Apply a coat of the clear plasticizer over your dried nail paint for longer lasting effect of the nail paint and a glossy finish to your nail paint.

My experience with the Double Use-Top & Base Coat-

I am absolutely in love with this product. A base coat and a top coat in a single bottle is a genius idea and I am so happy that Jaquilne USA executed this idea with great success. It is also very  affordable. I have used it quite a few times and must say it does its job as both a top coat and a base coat excellently.170.JPG176.JPG179.JPGPEEL-OFF GLITTER BASE

Performance-

  • Instantly removes glitter nail polish without the mess of acetone removal.
  • Allows frequent glitter changes, so perfect for party time or special occasions.
  • Nails are efficiently protected against staining and yellowing due to pigments discoloration.

Ingredients-

Aqua, polyvinyl acetate, phenoxyethanol, methyl ether, acrylates copolymer, dimethicone, ethylhexylglycerin, tocopheryl acetate

Price-

Rs 249/-

How to use it-

  1. Apply two coats of peel ‚Äď off base on bare nails.
  2. Let dry for about 10 minutes until the film becomes transparent.
  3. Apply your favourite glitter nail polish on top.
  4. To remove, just peel it off.

My experience with the Peel‚ÄďOff Glitter Base-

I am a huge fan of glitter, but glitter nail paints can be tricky. They are hard to remove and even when they do come out, they leave my nails feeling rough and weird. This product is an absolute brilliant idea. Its great when I go out partying on the weekends with my glitter nail paint and on Mondays I just have to peel it off to get ready for work.

164.JPG175.JPG177.JPG

In conclusion I am glad Jaquiline USA along with NewU Dabur thought of bringing an affordable range of nail care products to India. I am very impressed with these Jaquiline USA nail care products and will surely be trying the rest of the nail care products in their range soon.
