Skincafe Choco chip cookies lipscrub

 I am back!

Ignore my Arnold Shwarzenegger swag!😉

I am truly sorry for being away from my blog and from all of you. Trust me! It wasn’t an easy task .I want to be honest with you all and tell you why I wasn’t writing.

I had some career priorities and decisions to make so felt to focus on it entirely. It required my decision and constant discussion with my parents which needed me to stay away from any other priorities. ( my blog).

I also apologise to the brands which sent me their products for reviewing.Usually I don’t break my commitments with regard to posting on time.So please forgive me if I didn’t post it when it was supposed to go live.

Now back to the topic, eh? I was sent this cutie pie for reviewing and since I have used it several times,I can write about it.

About the brand: Skincafe is a brand which makes fresh products after you place your order.They use essential oils ,natural ingredients,herbal infusions and mild food colouring without any preservatives and all the harmful parabens. Checkout their website for product and price listing.Most interesting thing you will find that they post food pictures instead of product picture to show the flavor or the ingredient.That actually caught my eye. 

Availability: You can order through their website and also their Facebook page..I don’t think they sell through any retail centre.Currently they ship within India only.

skincafe1

Price: INR 950 for 9 gm.This might look costly but trust me,you really need a little everytime.So this tub will last you pretty long.Shipping cost is extra for each product you order.

Ingredients: You can see in the picture below,everything is natural and there is almost no trace of chemicals in it.

skincafe

Packaging: It comes in a cute cardboard box which is quite sturdy.When you open it,you are greeted with a spatula and a small glass tub.Being a glass,it is best to keep it in the box and carry.The box won’t open easily,so perfect for travel.The size is small as well,so definitely portable.

What I felt:  From the first day itself,I noticed a huge difference.

Earlier,I used to scrub my lips with a worn out toothbrush and coconut oil/Vaseline.Since I have started wearing lipsticks,specially matte ones,on a daily basis,you know how they affect our lips.My lips are currently in a normal state,but these lipsticks do make it flaky after 2- 3 days of wearing lipsticks.So I scrub my lips twice a week.

This lipscrub has cocoa bean granules so when you are scrubbing,it will tend to fall down.It is not sticky so you have to take a little amount and  work your way fast.The spatula provided is apt for the quantity to be taken.

It is indeed choclaty and being allergic to chocolates,it didn’t cause any reaction to my skin.(Surprising no?).The jojoba oil provides moisture .

You rub the scrub gently for 30 secs and wash it off.You can actually notice your lips are plump and super soft.If you have dry lips,then follow the drill as and when required ,but make sure,gentle scrubbing is there,because dry lips tend to lose skin fast and may cause bleeding.

I also felt that pigmentation of lips due to lipsticks tend to fade a little with this scrub.

Is there any con? I don’t think so.It works  and the amount will last you for easily 3-4 months if you have lips like mine.If you want to grab it,click here

I would definitely recommend this investment.

Things You Should Know When Reading a Cosmetic Label

1p

Deciding on a cosmetic product that will actually work for your beauty routine is not as easy as it seems – there are so many things you need to take care of before purchasing. It is not just about the beautiful packaging or its wonderful scent – an ingredient list should be your top priority. If you are not quite sure how to read it properly, stay with us. Here are four crucial things you should know when reading a cosmetic label.

Read the label from top to bottom

The first thing you should do before making a final decision is reading the label carefully – from top to bottom, not vice versa. This is essential since ingredients are listed in proportional order – highest quantities are always at the top of the list. Check out the first half of it and see if there are some ingredients you don’t like – if that is so, you may want to leave such product on the shelf. This is particularly important since our skin absorbs around 60% of what we apply to it directly into the bloodstream. That sounds really scary, right?

Is ‘organic’ really organic?

Since there are no laws that regulate ingredients used for the production of organic cosmetic products, you can never be sure whether it is really organic or not. The sad truth is that a company can label their product like that even if it consists of only 1% organic ingredients, which is truly devastating. However, there are certain certification bodies, such as COSMOS, that attempt to establish standards for such cosmetic products all over the globe. In order to get their certification, a brand needs to meet a strict set of standards in order to be recognized as organic. Just make sure that you always go shopping well-prepared – knowledge about specific items will help you choose an appropriate health-friendly product for yourself.

Know your irritants

Knowing about the ingredients that tend to be most irritating is of utmost importance, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Artificially added fragrances are irritants that can make your skin condition even worse, as well as preservatives such as Phenoxyethanol, a compound that retards the formation of bacterial growth. Brands such as Cosmedix have come up with preservative-free products that don’t put you at risk of absorbing those deep into your skin. Parabens also belong to this category, and they are added to cosmetic products to extend their shelf life and stop fungus and other microbes from growing in them. These can actually mimic estrogen and even cause breast tumor cells to grow, so make sure that you have read the label thoroughly before buying in order to avoid these.

Know how to decode expiration date

Decoding an expiration date of a product you are about to purchase is very important, and you should pay extra attention to particular symbols that can be seen on the label. The one with a floating lid jar, with a number and an ‘M’ will tell you the truth. For example, if it says 12M, you are allowed to use the product for 12 months after opening. Blushes, eye shadows, and moisturizers and last up to two years, whereas lipsticks, brow pencils, and eyeliners are appropriate for everyday use for only one year after you open them. When the time is up, you should better throw them away – you don’t want that bad product to go directly into your bloodstream, right?

As you can see, seeking an appropriate cosmetic product is definitely not as easy as it seems – there are so many things you need to know before purchasing. Unfortunately, a wide range of harmful chemicals are a part of formula when it comes to a lot of products, which is why you need to pay extra attention to their labels. Be informed and know exactly what you want – this is the only way to do it right!

Ida Naturals Calendula infused mango butter soap review

Heya!

How is your week treating you?

Well! mine is going tiring. For the past 2 days,I am returning home at 9 PM.😦 But I am trying to keep my word,blog comes first when I come back from office.

This is my first review of a soap,because firstly,it takes a lot of time to finish a soap to try the next and secondly,I am scared to use any other soap apart from my trusted Avene emollient bodywash gel.

About the brand: Ida Naturals was conceptualized in Bangalore (India), as an effort to revive the past and create an awesome, natural and environment-friendly line of bath and body creations. We create gentle, nourishing and effective products applying ancient Indian skin-care methods & herbal remedies using finest natural ingredients. Ida Natural’s creations are completely handcrafted & bio-degradable ensuring unsurpassed quality with no waste. We love creating and using our products and hope you love them too.

Availibility: You can buy it from their facebook page- https://www.facebook.com/IdaNaturals/

They have lot of products so you can choose from there or get it customized like I did.They also ship international.

Ingredients: Saponified mango butter,clendula infused sunflower oil,coconut oil and castor oil.These are the main ingredients.

All the ingredients are moisturizing in their action and specifically,calendula is good for sensitive skin/eczema-prone skin.

DSCN0419

Packaging

What the brand claims: This conditioning, rich, nourishing goodness is extra-mild and works great even on sensitive skin.The conditioning properties of Mango Butter and healing attributes of Calendula makes this soap a truly must-have in the household.

Works great on :

❖ Baby skin ❖ Mothers-to be skin ❖ Extreme Sensitive Skin ❖ Toddlers / kids with sensitive skin

Unscented soaps eliminate the chances of skin irritation / reaction of sensitive skin to essential oils

DSCN0420

Packaging

Price & quantity : Rs. 240/- to Rs. 250/- ( based on weights ).All shipping modes including COD are available. I believe this is apt and cheap.My soap is about to get finished and it lasted me for over a month.It is best to order in combination with other products due to shipping fee applicable.

Fragrance: None

Packaging: Comes in a simple plastic wrapper with the soap name and its information.

Texture: Isn’t that foamy but glides smoothly on the skin.

My thoughts: This soap actually works!It doesn’t dryout your skin and nourishes it.It is moisturizing in nature but if you have extremely dry flaky skin,you may not find it that useful.

Homemade soaps tend to weep but this didn’t even during Delhi humidity.Another plus point!

It doesn’t melt easily.I have tried soaps from notable brands,which tend to melt easily,but this baby didn’t.

It cleans well even though it has moderate foam.

I have sensitive skin and this didn’t even burn or cause irritation.So that’s my favourite point of choosing this soap.

However,if you have cuts or bruises,it will sting you.

This soap definitely has pros overall,so you can give it a try.This soap is organic,handmade and suited to normal,sensiitve-dry skin.What else do you need!😉

Deutchland Reisebericht(Germany travelogue)

Halo!

Wie geht es Ihnen? ( Gosh! I remember from my German class)

This is another chapter from my Europe tour.If you haven’t already gone through my earlier travel posts,I will link them below.

London Diaries

Amsterdam travelogue

After an amazing Amsterdam experience,it was time for Germany.All of us have heard its famous for its beer and Oktoberfest.But there’s more to it.It is immensely strong in its technological frontiers as well.

We boarded our coach in the morning from our Amsterdam hotel to visit Cologne cathedral situated amidst bustling lanes of Cologne.

Now,I know,obviously your mind will wander off towards,” Is the Eau De Cologne invented here? “

To answer that,bear with me and go through the rest of the beauty this city has.Cologne is notable for its Gothic architecture.The familiar arches and tall cathedrals will mesmerize you for sure.

And one such cathedral is the famous Cologne cathedral.It is the most visited site in Cologne and is dear to the native people.You literally have to strain your neck to photograph it in its mighty glory.It contains the bones of 3 wise men or 3 kings which is gilded into elaborate golden sarcophagus.It is a must visit sight if you want to be spellbound.

After taking in all the wonder this cathedral has to offer,we went around  in the nearby market.Now let’s come to your question.Eau de cologne as you may have heard,was developed by the Farina family of Italy. In 1803 Wilhelm Mülhens was granted to use the Farina family name and opened a cologne shop.Later on,it was denied and then,the house no. through which the cologne was sold,was used to brand the cologne name.Any guesses?😉 It is none other than 4711. We did buy vials and a perfume from their official store in the same market adjoining the cathedral.

Next we went for River Rhine cruise along which the city of cologne thrives.It was an hour long cruise which took us through serene waters.It was indeed a peaceful cruise.We all sat on the deck,soaking up the Sun.It has a bar as well and I tried the famous beer Kölsch. It was amazingly having a sweet tinge to it.We could see lot of castles and medieval rest houses on the hills,which is the touristy part of this cruise.

On deboarding it,our coach took us to Heidelberg to get a feel of past European life.You can easily spend a day roaming aimlessly on the streets.😀

If you see the pictures above,  there is a mouse and a monkey.Monkey symbolizes that neither the city-dwellers nor the outsiders are better than each other and that they should look over their shoulder to remeber this while crossing the bridge.It is believed that if you touch the fingers of the Bridge Monkey it would ensure your return to Heidelberg, touch the mirror for wealth and touching the mice will ensure fertility.I didn’t touch the mice ofcourse.😀

Next day,we drove to Black forest.I guess the tasty blackforest cake derives its origins from this part of Germany.Black forest is home to fir trees and an apt fairytale setting.Also,it is an abode to Cuckoo clocks.Worldfamous Cuckoo clocks!All of us had,atleast once in their lifetime,have possesed this clock or seen it somewhere. We watched a demonstration on how its made .We did empty our pocket as well .:-P We bought a battery operated clock as its convenient.There’s a shop called Drubba.They have 3 stores in there.The one which comes first,will fit your budget.Drubba family is the oldest family which is continuing this clock business.Hope my history is correct.

We had free time to ourselves to stroll the streets.We bought some souvenirs.Personally,I would love to visit Germany once again,as I feel I havent even touched 1 % of their things to see.

Shopping tip:When in cologne,we saw that there’s a ‘Deutch Markt’ just up ahead in the market ,which is like a drustore.They also have Eau De Cologne 4711,which is sold at cheaper prices.I feel it’s best to buy from there.We already bought our stuff from the official store,so couldn’t do much.

There is again a bubble wrapping paper and there,you have the goodies.

GLOBOX REVIEW 1

Availability: They ship almost everwhere in India,but not internationally.

Products: First thing you will notice is the size.All the products are full sized ones and from good brands mostly.

The products are in sync with your beauty profile.I have combination skin which is showing signs of ageing( I am growing old,I guess!😛 ),who wears light makeup and has normal body skin. Did I get the products right?Holy yes! I am being sincere.Truly! for the first time I felt the products are for me.

Most of the brands are herbal or use less chemicals when it comes to skincare.Makeupwise,we have reputed brands.

What I got:

Oriflame fairness body lotion-This is 2-in-1.It moisturizes as it has Vitamin E and protects you from Sun due to UV filters in it.The term ‘fairness’ is a misnomer as it basically prevents tanning,not remove it. No more applying 2 products when you are in a rush to go out of home!

Biobloom age defying serum– This has lot of herbal extracts and comes in gel form.Easy to apply and gets absorbed readily in those wrinkly areas.

Rustic Art Aloe shampoo-Gentle on the hair and has no SLES,SLS and parabens.It is a  gentle hair cleanser,perfect for daily use or for dry hair.

GLOBOX 2

Maybelline hyperglossy liner in black– Again a full sized product.Good eyeliner as you know it already.

Grey Gon lipstick in 163 Matt-It is deep red with pinkish undertones.It has velvety finish but moisturizing.This lipstick is from an Indian brand,as far I know it.It is new to me,but the color is perfect for summer days.It is not smudgeproof though.

GLOBOX 4

My thoughts:I got the Travelista box for 799 bucks.Truly,if you see the prices,it is literally half of what the total sum of all the prices are.

Let me simply summarize for you.

  • Full sizes(5-6 products)
  • Follows beauty profile
  • Decent pricing
  • Herbal skincare
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Reputed brands

Need I say more? Give this box a try,as you will have decent size to try out.

I will tryout the samples and will provide a detailed review for it.:)

Here’s their website.Go, fill the profile and get started.

PS: This is a PR sample box.

Boots beauty haul- Oxford street,UK

Heya!

During my London visit,I had made up my mind to shop in Boots.On my list was,Soap & Glory.

In India,you get these at Sephora and online stores ,that too at exorbitant prices.Comparatively,these are cheaper in their native place,i.e. UK & Europe.😛

Boots is a beauty haven for women.You get skincare,haircare,fragrances & ofcourse makeup.My priority was to buy Soap & glory products alongwith random other stuffs from makeup and skincare.I will share the Boots link and the online links of Indian sites wherever possible, in case you want to buy them.Here’s what I got:-

Soap & Glory Travel Size Flake Away Body Scrub 50ml– Honestly,you must be wondering who buys a travel version on a tour when you don’t get that in your country?I do! We had 2 days in London so didn’t carry enough Pounds with us.Payment through card costs additional conversion cost back in your country.Also,I was testing it for the first time,so didn’t want my money to go waste in case I get a skin reaction.This is a gentle scrub mainly but does remove the hardest of your rough areas.

This was costing me £2.50 which is approximately 250 INR.( It is around 96 INR for £1 back then,so providing the approximate amount.)As far I know,it costs 390 bucks in India in Sephora.

Here’s the link with the prices.Their store and online prices are the same.

http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory-Travel-Size-Flake-Away%C2%99-Body-Scrub-50ml_27906/

Soap & Glory Mini The Daily Smooth Dry Skin Formula Body Butter 50ml– This one is again for £2.50 .It is of a whipped cream nature.

http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory-Mini-The-Daily-Smooth-Dry-Skin-Formula-Body-Butter-50ml_1444116/

Soap & Glory RICH & FOAMOUS Dual-Use Shower & Bath Body Wash 500ml– This one is £6.50.It is a moisturizing body wash perfect for dry skinned beauties.

http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory%C2%99-RICH-FOAMOUS%C2%99-Dual-Use-Shower-Bath-Body-Wash-500ml_1686341/

IMG_20160611_151613_HDR

Aveeno Hand Cream 75ml-This one is for £3.66.It is for atopic skin.They have another variant for normal skin.This has oatmeal in it,which is said to help in atopic skin.

Aveeno Intensive Relief Hand Cream with Oatmeal (75ml) (Amazon)

http://www.boots.com/en/Aveeno-Hand-Cream-75ml_983776/

 Sanex Advanced AtopiCare Hand Cream 75ml£3.99.Again I bought the one for eczema prone hands like mine.Both the hand creams are non-greasy.

http://www.boots.com/en/Sanex-Advanced-AtopiCare-Hand-Cream-75ml_1760694/

 La Roche-Posay Hydreane Riche 40ml£14.50.It is a moisturizer for dry-very dry sensitive skin.I usually get dry itchy patches on my face so bought this after reading great reviews for it.

http://www.boots.com/en/La-Roche-Posay-Hydreane-Riche-40ml_865566/

IMG_20160611_155047_HDR

La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ 50ml– I know you must be thinking why  I bought a French brand product in UK.I didn’t know then, that I would get time in Cannes.We had a hurried Europe tour so was picking up stuffs from wherever I got time.Either way,if I buy anything from UK and Europe,it will be cheaper anyways .This was for £12.37. It is bit steep but not steep enough if I buy in India.Hate the import taxes!This is a sunscreen for combination skin/sensitive skin.You need to reapply after every 3 hours.

http://www.boots.com/en/La-Roche-Posay-Anthelios-XL-Ultra-Light-Fluid-SPF-50-50ml_1440776/

https://www.fortishealthworld.com/shop/sun-care/la-roche-posay-anthelios-xl-fluid-ultra-light-50ml(fortis)

http://fkrt.it/Pk~zIuuuuN (flipkart)

http://www.ebay.in/itm/122010579371?aff_source=Sok-Goog(ebay)

La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluid Ultra-Light, 50ml(amazon)

 Collection Lasting Colour Lipstick in shade Amethyst shine– Trust me! I didn’t want to buy this one,but ended up getting it for my VAT refund minimum amount bill .It is for 2.99 pounds.It is a very moisturizing lipstick and has satin finish to it.It has minute shimmers in it ,but when worn during the day time,looks like a balmy lipstick.For nighttime,it is a good wear.

http://www.boots.com/en/Collection-Lasting-Colour-Lipstick_1048144/

 Collection Bronze Glow Matt Powder Terracotta-Finally I got a bronzer which is matte and is soft on the skin.It is for 2.99 Pounds and doesn’t have any brush with it.

http://www.boots.com/en/Collection-Bronze-Glow-Matt-Powder-Terracotta_1450667/

IMG_20160611_151756_HDR

 I will try all of them and will let you know my thoughts on it.:-)

Tourist information: If you are a tourist over there,ask for the minimum bill amount to get a tax refund.I had shopped for around 47 pounds in  Boots,but was told the VAT refund will be applicable if I shop for minimum 50 pounds.So the lipstick came to my rescue.Same goes for all the shops.Different shops have their own minimum bill amount so be sure to ask beforehand.This rule is valid all over Europe as well.

Amara organix hand cream review

Hi Dolls!

I am back with another review of a chemical-free product by a brand Amara organix. Firstly,I would bring to your notice that this brand understands your needs and customises the products for you.In my case,before sending me the samples,they had asked about what all ingredients pose a problem to me.They have sent 2 soaps as well in their basic gift wrapping which I will post about later.:-)

IMG_20160608_210006_738

About the brand: Amara handcrafted bath & beauty products are formulated to create a positive and enriching experience to an individual’s mind,body and soul. We at Amara use the abundant body of knowledge left behind by our ancients in Ayurveda,Aromatherapy, Ancient Chinese texts and our very own backyard recipes to present safe,gentle and natural beauty solutions.

In the quest for beauty that is safe and natural, we at Amara Organix strive to deliver natural and handmade skincare essentials. We procure our ingredients from the most genuine sources available and use only the purest steam distilled essential oils, cold pressed Virgin nourishing oils, organically farmed honey,exotic oils like Argan ,Maracuja oils and herbs and exfoliates.

To know about them more and their product list,head over here.

Availability: Products can be ordered via whatsapp (+91 8056592923) , Facebook  messenger and mail (Info@amaraorganix.com). They do ship worldwide but it will be costly due to shipping charge.

Price and quantity: ₹350/- for 100 gms. Shipping charge additional ₹50/- within chennai and if out of station – mostly it is ₹70 to ₹80. It is best to order several items at a time.I find the price reasonable for an organic product and the quantity is apt,considering it will last you easily for 2-3 months depending on how severe your hands are dry. Payment to be made via NEFT transfer and Bank Deposit.COD not available.Bank details will be shared when your order is confirmed.

Ingredients: Shea butter ,Aloe Vera extract, Coconut oil, Argan oil ,Tamanu oil ,Frankincense essential oil  and Lavender essential oil

IMG_20160608_205951_786

Packaging: Comes in a simple plastic transparent tub with screwed lid.The tub had a nature-like design all over but it faded away while using it. It only has the product name on it.On enquiring I got to know,its just a sample packaging,so the correct name will be mentioned for sure.😀.The packaging can be improved as in mentioning of ingredient list,price and expiry. Nonetheless,Mehar,the owner of this brand is very responsive to your queries. They also do customised gift wrapping for party favours/wedding favours/birthday return gifts/event takeaways for corporates etc. Colour/design/theme and budget – everything is customisable and they also work within budgets.

IMG_20160608_205932_063

Name will be changed!😀

Fragrance and texture: It has a very lavender like smell which is refereshing.Not too overpowering.It has a very light texture and the cream looks offwhite in color.Easily blends into the skin.

IMG_20160608_205912_439

My thoughts: I like my hand creams hydrating but non-greasy.Does this serve the purpose?

Yes!It gets absorbed readily and is not at all greasy. Makes your hands soft for 4-5 hours for moderate dry hands.You need to reapply it though after washing hands.

The tub is sturdy so no issues of spillage.However,if you are travelling and open the tub,the product may stick to the lid and fall.

Didn’t cause any trouble to my eczema prone skin as well.Infact all the ingredients used are good for soothing the eczema skin.

The consistency is such that,you can use it as a body moisturiser also or dry areas of your face.

Overall verdict: Definitely a good purchase.
