A perfect winter care with Palmer’s.

Hi ! my lovely people, hope you are all doing good. Now that the winters have officially begun, and yes, its time for winter care, an extra care that our skin needs during this time.

These are my current winter favorites , featured here.

  • Palmer’s Cocoa butter formula Moisturizing Body oil.
  • Palmer’s Cocoa butter formula with vitamin E .

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing body oil :

IMG_7336

Key Ingredients : Vitamin E , Soybean , Sesame and safflower.

The product claims as a light oil specially formulated with pure cocoa butter and vitamin E to help soften , soothe rough and dry skin. This is a rich formula that gets absorbed into the skin easily.

Palmer’s cocoa Butter formula cream :

Key Ingredients : Vitamin E.

The product claims as a rich and luxurious cocoa butter formula with original solid that provides deep hydration all over. This unique formula melts into the skin, creating a protective barrier that locks the moisture.

My take on the product : I have absolutely fallen in love with the oil more than the solid honestly. I have a extra dry skin on my feet which has been completely taken care of. Especially, during the winters they are even more drier, and the skin totally loses the hydration. But not any more, with this super quick absorbing oil.

Formulated with Vitamin E, one of the vital ingredient to have a soft smooth skin does exactly what is supposed to do. Sometimes, I would like to add 1-2 drops of this oil to the warm water and have my shower, or mostly I apply it to my damp skin, so that moisture is locked to my skin and they remain soft all day long.

The cocoa butter solid does contain vitamin E, and i love to keep this in my handbags, which means I can keep them even on the go. Did you hear it ? I said yes, even on the go.

A simple plastic container that is completely filled with the cocoa butter solid is perfect for face, skin, lips and all also for the stretch marks. I have used the tummy butter during my pregnancy which gave me the best results, and I am sure with constant use this would definitely help with the marks .

Both the cocoa butter range smells so yummy! Being a chocolate lover, I could hardly resist from eating them ( no joke :p ). Formulated without parabens and pththalates. 100% it relieves the rough and dry skin. Can be used both day and night , or as over might treatment.

The cocoa butter moisturizing body oil comes in a seal able, plastic bottle weighing 250 ml, and the cocoa butter solid comes in a 100 ml tub, both are quite sufficient in quantity for a few months use as a little bit goes a long way.

Will I Repurchase  ? Yes, definitely.

The price range is affordable, really inexpensive and are available at Boots Middle East, and few hypermarkets like Lulu , Al Manama , Megamart and other leading pharmacies. 

What’s your winter care ? do share with me !

GOSH DONODERM CLEANSING MOUSSE – REVIEW

Hello loves, hope you are all doing good ! Today I’m coming up with an interesting skincare post. We all know, how much we love our cleanser, cos we only need a clean face without anything. keep reading more, to find out why I absolutely love GOSH DONODERM CLEANSING MOUSSE. 

cleansing mousse

At the end of a long day, nothing feels quite as good as cleansing your face. Removing every trace of dirt, sweat and makeup allows the skin to breathe, repair and renew itself. 

With so many cleansing options available,  knowing the difference between each type allows you to filter your options and makes the hunt for the perfect cleanser a whole lot easier. If you have a normal skin type, feel free to try any type of cleanser as long as your skin tolerates it.

There are 5 different types of cleansers:

  1. Gel cleansers – Gel cleansers are clear and, as the name suggests, have a gel-like consistency. Generally designed for deep cleansing, they are effective at de congesting clogged pores, removing excess oil and killing acne-causing bacteria, thanks to their antiseptic and exfoliating properties. Best suited for Oily & combination skin. 
  2. Foam cleansers – Foam cleansers are lightweight cleansers that start out as cream or gel and burst into a rich, foamy lather. This type of cleanser removes excess oil as effectively as gel cleansers. Best suited for oily and combination skin.
  3. Cream cleansers – Cream cleansers are usually thick, creamy and contain moisturizing ingredients like botanical oils. They gently cleanse your skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Cream cleansers can also come in the form of milk or lotion. Best suited for dry skin.
  4. Oily cleansers – Washing your skin with oil may sound like a recipe for breakouts, especially if you have oily skin, but most experts disagree. An oil cleanser is a gentle way of removing pore-clogging , including waterproof makeup , without drying your skin. Best suited for all skin types.
  5. Clay cleansers – Known for their absorbing power, clay cleansers purify your skin by drawing out excess oil and toxins from your pores. Best suited for oily and combination skin. 

Me, being a Oily and combination skin, I absolutely prefer foam cleansers. So, here’s my complete review of GOSH DONODERM CLEANSING MOUSSE after putting it to use for 2 weeks. 

PACKAGING & TEXTURE : 

The ultra gentle cleansing mousse comes with a smart pump applicator to produce  a soft cloud of foam that gently cleanses skin and leaves it hydrated. 

The texture is ultra light, just a bunch  of bubbles  with NO FRAGRANCE.

Why I prefer using this  ? 

  • This is an ultra light foaming cleanser , that is ideal for oily and combination skin.
  • Both men and women can use this mousse.
  • They are also suited well for acne skin , as this regulates sebum production .
  • Effectively removes make up, even waterproof makeup.
  • Leaves the skin perfectly clean with a Matt finish. 
  • Upon continuous usage of this cleanser, reduces the oil and shine on the face.
  • I couldn’t see much results on my pores, however I feel upon consistent use definitely there might be reduction in the size of pores as well.
  • Perfectly suitable for men , as men tend to have extreme skin tones – too dry or too oily.
  • These can be used by people having normal skin tone as well.
  • People with dry skin , will not see much visible effects. It may or may not work.

Trust, the above listed statements is enough to prove for my perfect choice of cleanser. 

Gosh has come up with a complete skin care range for both men and women that includes many amazing products, Micellar cleansing Water , Micellar cleaning wipes , Prime ‘N Refresh eye cream , 24 h Moisture gel , 24 h Moisture cream , Collagen booster serum , vitamin complex serum , T-zone refining serum, Prime ‘N Set spray , Hand & Nail cream, Micellar cleansing water and cleansing mousse.

Set , Sculpt & Strobe with Misslyn !

Hey there ! Hope you are all doing good ! Today let’s begin with some interesting stuffs. We all love the sculpted look with no double chin, no big fat nose, and so on… We do know all this can be done with contouring or sculpting, without workouts !

Today, lets begin our beauty class with some of the amazing misslyn products, which I have personally tried & tested and hence I bring the same for you all. 

We are going to need three products only , with the brush of your choice. Let’s begin.

  1. MISSLYN MAKE IT LAST FOREVER, Matte fixing Powder :

This is a transparent powder ideal for fixing and mattifying the makeup.  Though, it looks white in color, it sets the makeup very well, and doesn’t leave a white cast on your face, even in flash photography. If you feel that your face is oily, just swirl your brush in, and set it on your face. 

Note : It is always better to dab the oil on your T-zone using a blotting sheet or a sponge or a tissue and then set it with powder. That’s it! It stays matte and fixed for good  5- 6 hours, which is a pretty decent time.

Now that your face is fully set, and now lets move on to the next step. 

2. MISSLYN BRONZING & CONTOURING POWDER :

The bronzing & contouring powder looks like the BEACH Edition. What ??? Yes, to have a natural tan , this powder gives the perfect sunny summer vibes, resulting it to be very natural.

The best part is they look great on both cool  & warm  undertones. You can use it like a bronzer, on a casual day. Or the perfect contouring technique, 

  • Right below your hairline at the top of your forehead.
  • On the right and left sides of your forehead, near your hairline on either side.
  • Along the right and left sides of your nose.
  • In the hollows of your cheeks (to find them, suck your cheeks in).
  • Along your jawline on both sides, from your ears to the tip of your chin.

So, our face looks sculpted, and the last step is to highlight ! And this is an exciting step for all of us, because, we want the glow baby !!!

3. MISSLYN GLOW FOR IT! STROBING POWDER :

An illuminating strobing powder , accentuating and enhancing , the fine light reflecting pearls, refresh a dull looking complexion for a naturally looking radiance. 

This highlighter or a strobing powder, is the perfect one that compliments all skin tones . Remember to use the highlighter in the spots that catch the light, on your cheekbones, along your temples, down the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes, and above your cupid’s bow. This will enhance your natural features. Don’t spread the product all over your face, or else your glow will turn into a greasy mess. If you have oily skin, skip areas like your forehead or chin, which have a little shine already.

Tip : After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush, or a damp makeup sponge. To avoid blobs of product and obvious makeup lines, make sure you blend any harsh edges of highlighter so it fades into the rest of your skin.

MARLAY LOTION FOR SOFT FEET, DOES IT WORK ?

we  all dream of having a soft , well moisturized feet  but sometimes or the other, it is more of a dream and actually not in reality. How many of you go for pedicures, frequently ? I haven’t done so in ages ! Today, I’m going to share my personal experience of using a wonderful product for all your feet problems ,  nails and hand problem , from the french brand MARLAY COSMETICS. 

NAILS
This is how the product looks !

What does Marlay Cosmetics say about it ? Revolutionary in the treatment of cuticles and callosities, the MARLAY lotion won an award at the prestigious Lepine innovation contest in 1990.

Based on CELANDINE, a medicinal herb used by French great – grandmothers for its curative virtues, the formula gently dissolves all dead skin for a perfect manicure and baby soft feet all year around.

It is also very effective on corns , calluses and other build-ups of hard skin when reapplied over several days.

What I understood from this ? In short, I wanted to test the lotion Marlay Celandine. The purpose of this lotion? Dissolve the dead skins so that you can remove them and make you feet of an incomparable softness.

Yes, we are not in absolute Glamor, but let’s say we have to go through there to have nice feet!

LOTION
This is the actual bottle

To accompany the lotion, the brand also offers cotton pads and a big nail file  which will be very useful to let the lotion put on my feet. 

Texture of the product is like water, too thin and a runny texture, So, be extra careful while trying to pour them.

How to use them ? 

  • Option 1 :  soak the cotton and leave it, like a cloth mask, for 15 to 20 minutes on the areas to be treated.
  • Option 2 : Dilute  2 to 3 drops of lotion  in a bowl of water and make a foot bath for 15 to 20 minutes. I chose the second option, which seemed to me the most practical.

    Small note: you can do it on the feet but also on the hands.

The first option wouldn’t be so  practical , as it’s a bit hard to spend 20 minutes without moving, without dropping the cottons. 

My Experience of using them : 

I first soaked my feet in the water with these drops for about good 20 minutes. I previously had a Wart on my foot, and I had Cryo for that to get removed – such a painful one , you know ! Since then, am extra cautious for my foot, but still i have those dark dead skin present . 

CREAM LOTION
Old fashioned Nail file 

I thought , You wanted it, you got it! So once the laying time has passed, you have to take a trick to scrape. Kind an old-fashioned nail file. And you scrap, scrap and scrap ! Dead skins go off very easily.

In the end, I found the lotion very effective. Well, these are slightly too EFFECTIVE, because when you see all your skins falling, it’s totally scary. There, it is the “soft alopecia” version. It works, but you still have control.

For hands, I have mostly used them as a cuticle oil . But I honestly I prefer them for the foot care than nails, as it is very effective. 

Priced at 35 Euros, a little pricey, but great effect !

( This was sent to me as a PR sample, however my opinions are honest and are tried and tested ).

Have you tried this ?

Seeing the palette, you might think of Halloween, but certainly not ! They are not around the corner, but who says that ? it can be used at any time of the  year.  This year the most beautiful design definitely wins Misslyn Cosmetics with the Deadly Beautiful series! A design with the theme  flowers, skulls and even the products rather extraordinary nuances, yes admitted, that cries after me or? That’s why I had to put them to the test!

There are two pallets, mixed with eye shadow, highlighters, rouge and eyebrow products. The pallets have a nice matte paper wrapping! The mirror is especially beautiful when the pallets are opened.

How Gorgeous the packaging is !
The Deadly Beautiful range has lovely range from Cool blue, Cool Grey, Turquoise , and Expressive Purple.  The palette itself contains shimmering eye shadow shades. I sighed them first without base, but the color when swatches was amazing. The pigmentation was amazing and I had a happy feeling of ” Yes, I can blend them well “.

Look at the Peach Blush and Highlight !

The Peach Blush and the highlighters are the best combo ever. Seriously it solves the dual purpose. If you need a highlighter on your face, and to the brow bone, this is it ! Its right there at just one place.
