We all love to do makeup but how many of us actually take time to remove it properly? We don’t realize the consequences our skin might face in the coming years if Makeup remains unremoved in our skin. It can severely damage our skin cells, and become the culprit for premature aging signs, spots, and skin cancer.

Especially around the Eyes & Lips where our skin tends to be delicate and gentle, it is more likely to show signs of aging like fragile skin, fine lines, and wrinkles so quickly.

OMG! That pimple again!

Ohh no! Those zits are showing up again!

Uughrrr can’t tolerate this oil on my face anymore!!

Are you the person complaining about such problems on a regular basis? I know many of us are having these issues since our childhood and unfortunately still continue to have the same. But there is nowhere we can run after in general. We are blessed with a skin that produces excessive oil no matter what we actually struggle in our real day to day life. It irritates! It stings! But this is what our skin is actually.

So instead of hating this, blaming it on our fate to have oily skin (I believe many do so), we should be opting for the right kind of face washes to eliminate that excessive oil. If oily skin is not treated properly or it is ignored, then it can cause occasional pimples/acne/zits. So, here I am listing down the top 5 effective yet budget-friendly face washes especially for oily skin that you can totally rely on-

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser

This one is the most hyped, clinically proven, non-cosmedogenic, oil-free face wash available in the Indian market. Not only that, it claims to remove micropollutant PM 2.5 which trigger all kind of skin problems be it pimples, skin aging, irritation, breakouts, etc. Enriched with 33% glycerine, Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser also locks the skin’s natural moisture while cleansing deep into the skin.

Himalaya Herbals Oil Clear Lemon Foaming Face Wash

If you ask me what is the one thing that I love in particular about this face wash then I would say its cooling and energizing effect. It is enriched with Lemon, an astringent and cooling agent, and Honey, which has natural, deep cleansing properties. It leaves skin fresh with the very first use without feeling dry and stretched.

Nykaa Tea Tree & Neem Purifying Face Wash

Now this one comes really clean and prominent in terms of its ingredients. People with oily or combination skin can definitely give this a try as it helps to eliminate oil and dirt from the skin. It is also gentle on the skin.

NIVEA Milk Delights Face Wash (Besan)

NIVEA Milk Delights with Fine Gram Flour help to remove excess oil from the skin. This one is one of my personal favorites as it focuses on the benefits of natural ingredients. The milk acts as a natural cleanser and fine gram flour helps to prevent stickiness by removing the excess oil from the skin, thus making you feel really good in just one use.

Lotus Herbals Tea tree & Cinnamon Oil Control Face Wash

Now this one targets the main concern and the best part is it is specially formulated for oily skin. It contains Tea Tree Oil, Cinnamon, and Oak Bark extracts which remove excess oil from the skin surface while regulating the Sebum (Oil) production in the skin.

These are some of my favorites and some are the best sellers in terms of customer rating. However, these are especially proved to be best and effective for oil control but hardly said to work on existing or recurrent pimples. So, if you are someone with severe pimple problems already then I would suggest you check with a dermatologist immediately and treat your problem accordingly.

Locked down has made us miss our parlour pampering session right? Even if we want, we cannot visit parlour fearlessly like we used to do before. We got this feeling so hard lately. But what if we do it from our home itself? Yeah… You heard it right. Recently I light upon a brand called Indrani Cosmetics and they have an entire premium range of facial kits to indulge in.

We always look out for budget friendly yet premium quality skincare which we rarely find. But no more worry because the wait is finally over! With the Indrani Cosmetics Spa Facial Kit , we can totally feel that exotic spa vibes that too from the comfort of our home! I am so pleased that they have sent me their Facial Spa Kit to try out and trust me I’m so much in love with the kit already. Hands down the product’s quality and versatility. Here are some of the items that I got in the box and found using very helpful lately.

Lavender Spa Cleanser

So the first item is the Lavender spa cleanser that comes in a cream form with soothing lavender colour. And guess what? Lavender is my favorite colour and it made me fall for this one already. It gently detoxifies the skin while acts as an anti-fungal agent. It has the richness of lavender oil into it which means it also works best to kill bacteria, prevent and heal acne breakouts. The cleanser also heals sensitive skin. I personally have a sensitive skin and it has been working well for my skin so far. It doesn’t strip off that natural oil from my skin, so I never felt dryness after using this one. Good product to invest in your skincare.

Spa Skin Freshner

After the cleansing part we are not going to miss the toner. So Indrani Cosmetics Spa skin freshner is to be applied right after cleansing is done. It instantly gives the energizing and cooling sensation on the skin. The product said to shrink the open pores and helps to maintain the Ph balance of the skin. It also has Witch hazel as an active ingredient that is already well known for its medicinal benefits. I found it more like an astringent lotion which is perfect for oily/combination skin with open pores. It has a mild scent which instantly refreshes the mood also. 

Spa Gel Scrub

Indrani Cosmetics spa gel scrub is infused with micro beads that help to exfoliate the skin surface without damaging the soft skin layer. It effectively removes any dead cells while keeping the moisture level at place. The best part is the beads are so gentle on skin that it doesn’t even feel harsh or irritate the sensitive skin since I have a sensitive skin and touchwood that it worked on my skin (don’t rub on skin if you have highly sensitive skin)

Aloe Vera Spa Massage Cream

Indrani cosmetics aloe vera spa massage cream is enriched with aloe vera extract which help to hydrate the skin layer. Massaging skin with this cream after washing face with lavender spa cleanser/spa gel scrub, helps to keep skin nourished and fresh. It also ensures to treat damage skin and make dull skin look brighter. After massaging my face with this cream I can see a subtle glow on my skin which is like no one can miss right?

Texture of the Aloe Vera Spa Massage Cream

So the entire Indrani Cosmetics Spa Facial Kit took my heart literally. Now I don’t need to bother or wait for the frequent visit to the parlour. All I do is take a day off for pampering myself and get the facial done at home. It has been really convenient for me and less time consuming too. I will highly suggest everyone to try their facial ranges if you are someone who always look for budget friendly, organic, cruelty free skincare products. Finally, shading light on this brand, I also want to let you all know that Indrani Cosmetics ethically make their products with best quality ingredients, totally Chemical free, Vegan and Cruelty free.

Available on Indrani Cosmetics Website

Do let me know your experience if you are going to try this brand. I bet you would thank me later. See you in my next post. Till then take care.

I still remember when I first saw the newly launched Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask on their website and couldn’t wait any further to grab it. I was insanely looking for a good Vitamin C enrich product to incorporate in my skincare regimen for so long. Luckily I got my hand on this one and nothing can be more coincidental than getting that desired item from one of my preferred brands . So in this post, I will be talking about the Vitamin C sleeping mask and my experience using the product.

Product Description

Price & Quantity

599 INR for 100 gm

Skin Type

All skin types including Sensitive skin (which is an added advantage)

Texture

Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask comes in a transparent foam like soft and frothy texture. I just loved the texture since I opened the jar. Smells hevenly and after applying on skin it feels like a mist on face. It claims to contain Vitamin C and Aloe Vera Extract which supply moisture to the skin and replenish Lost Radiance. It also helps to restore skin elasticity, reducing any early signs of Aging, maintains tones and strengthens the skin cells.

Ingredients

My experience using the Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask

The packaging is very basic like the other Mamaearth products that come with a white frosted pastic jar with a screw lid. I believe it helps the product to get contaminated with any external fungal reaction as you can tighten the cap as necessary. It also comes with a spatula which is so cute and make the application even much easier.

The Vitamin C mask has a frothy texture which I found really different and unique. Trust on me, you will also surprise too to see its texture. It has a clear aqua gel consistency and a soothing aroma (which I truly fell in love with already). As the name suggests, it is specifically for night time, before sleeping/going to bed. So that the product can sit and work on the skin overnight.

There are no other chemical listed on the ingredients list apart from the main ingredients Aqua, Aloe vera juice, Vitamin C and some preservatives to maintain the shelf life. Also to be noted, natural ingredients might trigger existing allergies, so do a patch test always if you are someone with common allergic problems.

How I use it

I use Vitamin C Mask as a last step of my night time routine, and this pack is so light and watery that it takes time to set into the skin. I don’t know why to use it for only night time, when one can get the benefit from using them in the morning also. Because some research also says that Vitamin C products work best when applied in the morning before heading out for the day, because UV radiation is generally high that time.

Also it sets like spraying mist on skin and a very slight cooling effect right after the application. I love the way this mask deeply nourishes my skin and makes it look plump the next morning. Initially I thought how it would work on my sensitive skin but (touch wood) I haven’t experienced anything discomforting till now.

Vitamin C sleeping mask is always a great way to combat any damaged skin from UV radiation, free radicals and dark spots and help to bring back the natural glow and illumination. Have been using from quite a few days now and a big thumbs up for this product from my side. Do let me know which Vitamin C skincare are you following lately.

See you in my next post! TaDaa

Welcome everyone !

This is going to be my first post here and in this post I shall review “Soumi’s Can Active” from the renowned herbal brand The Soumi’s Can Product. I know some of you guys already heard about this face pack. In fact,this is my all time favourite face cleanser/pack whatever you would say. So,I am very excited to share my personal genuine thought on this product.

First of all Soumi’s can active is absolutely not a new launch but a very effective product for the oily skin beauties. Basically, the Soumi’s Can Product is based in West Bengal,India. But now they are also available both online and offline in stores in other regions. Some of you might already know about the product or some are still in doubt, whether it is worth buying or not. So do check the entire post to know if it actually fits your skin or not. Here we go. . . .

Skin Type

Oily to sensitive skin

Usage

2-3 times a day for 3 mins

Price

175 INR (might change later)

Quantity

150gm

Ingredients

I am detailing only some of the natural ingredients,I found to be helpful for you all. This is a herbal product and everything used to make this product is organic. I can already assume that some of you people are keen to know the ingredients so here it is

  • Neem (known for its antibacterial properties)
  • Swet chandan or sandalwood (helps to lighten the skin tone)
  • Multani Mitti (helps to lower down sebum secretion)
  • Aswagandha (known of its anti ageing formula)

Product Description

Soumi’s can active comes in a face pack form which you have to apply directly or on wet face. As it consists of some ground organic particles so you will find some crushed yet soft granules into it. You need to be more gentle while washing your face. Though it won’t be harsh for your skin but you can scrub your face gently along with the t-zone to remove any blackheads or whiteheads.

Soumi’s Can Active Texture

As multani mitti is an active ingredient in soumis Can active, so it smells more like mitti. Because of the presence of some essential oils you will get to see some fluid soon after opening the container. But don’t worry it will not destroy the remaining product at all (I am seriously stuck to this product from past couple of years )

My Experience using Soumi’s can active

After using this face pack for more than 3 years now I have to say it worked amaze on my skin and helped my skin to get rid of hyper sensitivity too. It works best to reduce sensitiveness of your skin if you have so. Apart from that, it helps to lighten blemishes, scars of pimples, reduce pimples and controls sebum secretion which is a terrible story of all oily skin beauties.

Lastly, I want to add something to quickly catch your attention that this product also claims that frequent uses of soumi’s can active over a period of time helps to brighten the complexion of the skin as well (which is surely an added benefit for us)

So if you are facing such problems then you can definitely opt for Soumi’s Can Active without even thinking twice.


I hope you enjoyed reading the review. If you have any question regarding the post or you want to ask me anything then do leave your comments below.

See you in my next post. Till then take care

Are you a person with dry skin? Looking out for a sunscreen that help to ease the dryness at the same time? Well, so you have come to the right place. Let’s go through this Biotique Bio Sandalwood Ultra Soothing Face Lotion review to find out how this product works on skin and who should actually buy this sunscreen. Because I have always struggled a lot finding out the right sunscreen for my skin and ended up opting for the different product from my skin type.

Quantity & Price

350 INR for 120ml (price might differ)

Skin Type

Normal to dry skin

Product Description

The texture of the lotion is neither too runny nor too thick. It is blended onto the skin smoothly. When applied on skin it does minimize the problem of dry skin surface, but leaves little bit oily residue on skin. So dry skin people may love it and find it useful. This nutrient rich lotion protects skin with broad spectrum SPF 50 UVA/UVB sunscreen.  It helps to reduce the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and any further skin darkening effects from the sun. It is also organically pure, preservative free and Dermatological tested for our safety.

It smells somewhat like Ayurvedic herbs with sandalwood scent being prominent. Packaging is usual bottle packaging, green screw cap and a semi transparent off white body. The lotion is cream in color with a tint of pink into it. It also has 50+ SPF UVA/UVB sunscreen and an ultra soothing consistency which is perfect for using on body as well.

Ingredients lists

My experience using the Biotique Bio Sandalwood Face Lotion

I always appreciate this brand for coming up with natural properties into their products. Each product seems so natural and less chemical ingredients into it. I found this lotion moderately light and moisturizing on skin. But since I have a combination skin with an oily T-Zone and dry cheeks, it doesn’t go well on my skin and leaves me all greasy. Except those winter days, when my skin turns out like a desert and I badly reach out to this product.

Nonetheless, it doesn’t leave that white cast on skin as some of the sunscreen from other brands does, and blends easily into the skin the moment you apply it. I totally hate sunblocks/sunscreens which give out that greasy feeling, so definitely NO for me! Though the lotion itself says on its packaging that this is for all skin types, but I would suggest not going for if you have a combination to oily skin. Also I’m not a fan of strong scent so I personally didn’t like the smell but if you are someone who like those herbs smell then I am sure you’re gonna love it totally.

After it is applied on skin

If you’re someone like me who has already bought this product so I would suggest you not to let your money go in vain. Try using it on the other exposed part of the body, because even if our skin is oily, our body skin tends to be drier. Even I have very dry elbows and hands and being moisturizing enough I found it working good for my hands. It also has become a must-have for me in almost every season now.

So that’s it for this post. I hope you found this review helpful. If you did so, then please like and share this post. And if you have any question regarding anything then leave your comment below. I will try to revert to your comment asap!

Hi guys, I hope you are all doing well!

Today I will be reviewing Nivea hand cream since it has been in my pending list from a long time. So, as soon as I got something really good yet reasonable hand cream, I thought of sharing about the product with you all.

Basically I am a person who tends to wash hands so often and having said that I literally mean that I also tend to reach out to creams at the same time. But, I have never owned a hand cream until now. When I saw Nivea had introduced their range of hand creams and that too unbelievably at a very affordable range, it instantly caught my attention. I thought that it was the perfect time to get my hands on them as I have only been sticking to my face creams to moisturize my hands before. Nivea Hand Creams come in 3 variants, and I picked up only two from them, i.e. Indulging Beeswax and Refreshing Aloe Vera.

Net Quantity & Price 

90/- for 75 ml

Variants

  1. Indulging Glycerine & Beeswax (For all skin types)
  2. Soothing Glycerine & Olive(For very dry skin)
  3. Refreshing Glyserine & Aloe Vera (For dry skin)

Refreshing Glycerin & Aloe Vera
