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

The brand name VYA naturals is derived from:-

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

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.

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.

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.
