Hello Bright Eyes, with Derma.e !

Hi peeps, hope you are all having a fabulous day ! Today I’m coming up with a post, that all of us keep looking for these – yes, I mean ” THE DARK CIRCLES”.

There was a time when I loathed waking up in the morning. This was because I would have to look into the mirror and see those dark circles staring back at me. But when I found a way that could cure my dark circles, my joy knew no bounds.

If you too are one of the many individuals tormented by dark circles, don’t worry! I’m going to share a product, that I am currently loving so far. Derma e, Evenly Radiant Dark circle Eye Creme.  This is simple and easy-to-do solution will not only lighten your dark circles but also nourish and hydrate the skin under and around your eyes.

  • Pycnogenol helps visibly reduce dark circles and puffiness.
  • Vitamin C , Madonna Lily plant stem cells, Vitamin b3 and Bear berry help illuminate eyes.
  • Moisture infused with Green Tea antioxidants help smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. 

WHAT IS IT FORMULATED WITH ? Purified water, niacin amide (vitamin B3), capric/caprylic triglyceride (vegetable derived), cetyl alcohol (plant derived), glycerin (vegetable derived), glyceryl stearate citrate (vegetable derived), prunus persica (peach) kernel extract, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel), extract, arnica montana flower extract, achillea millefolium (yarrow) extract, aesculus hippocastanum (horse chestnut) seed extract, organic camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract*, arctostaphylos uva ursi (bearberry) leaf extract, cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate, caffeine, propanediol (vegetable derived), pinus pinaster (pycnogenol®) bark extract, sodium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin C, Stay-C® 50), lilium candidum (madonna lily) leaf cell extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid, Actimoist® Bio-1), retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), epilobium angustifolium (canadian willowherb™) extract, potassium cetyl phosphate, zinc oxide, triethoxycaprylylsilane, xanthan gum, glyceryl stearate SE, potassium sorbate, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin. *Certified Organic Ingredients.

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT  : It looks like a very light weighted creme –  gel in consistency ,  that gets easily absorbed into the skin. I can hardly smell anything, just nothing. I have been using this for a week now, and I see a significant change in my dark circle area. 

Truly speaking, the puffiness has been reduced , and the dark circles has decreased . Since I do not have any fine lines, it works well for my  eye area.

The cream stays hydrated on the eye area, even on my oily skin. and I am sure they should work on dry and normal skin as well. Not only that, though being an early riser at home, where my day starts at 4 am, and ends at 9.30 pm, the stress, sleep deprivation, tiredness , and exhaustion add a big plus to the dark circles. but with this creme, I see some visible results, however a complete 4 week update will be posted soon with before and after pictures.

Sometimes, even after removing my heavy waterproof eye makeup, I feel my dark circles are accentuated little more, but this creme keeps it at bay. 

HOW TO APPLY ? Gently apply a pearl sized amount around the entire eye area. Using light pressure ( with ring finger) pat around the entire orbital area. For best results, apply morning and night. 

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE APPLICATION :

I always apply the gel eye mask , the one that is easily available at local stores. I apply the ones that you can use as COLD / HOT mask on your eyes to decrease the stress around the eye area. 

Once that is done, after a good 10 minutes, I apply this creme at night before going to bed. And the next day I wake up with a non puffy eye and I believe that with continuous use of this product, there will definitely be a significant decrease in my dark circles.

( Dark circles can also be heredity, in few cases, but mostly they can be cured effectively.)

These retails for $23, though pricey yet effective.

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.

mousse 2

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.

Review : CLARINS One step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

Hi my lovely people out there  ! Hope you are all having a fabulous day ! Today I will be reviewing some cool and luxury skin care product . Its from Clarins. Yes, its the Clarins one step gentle exfoliating cleanser with “Orange Extract”.

This gentle exfoliating cleanser minimizes necessity of cleansing the skin separately! So, it means one step of your beauty regimen is cut into half. But how ? It does the two steps in one single step. 

It “Cleanses” and “exfoliates” in one step ! Sounds, amazing right !!! Keep reading…..

Clarins-One-Step-Gentle-Exfoliating-Cleanser
This is how the product looks !

cream cleanser
The orangey creamy cleanser with tiny micro beads 

What does clarins say ? 

Clarins gentle, spa-fresh cleanser polishes-away make-up, embedded impurities and spent surface cells in one time-saving step — revealing the glowing skin beneath. Orange extract softens, refreshes and revives. Moringa Seed extract purifies and refines while preserving your skin’s natural moisture balance. Gentle Silica Micro beads give clogged pores a breather. Now that’s refreshing!

How to apply ?

Place a small amount of product onto the fingertips of one hand. Gently massage onto damp skin to work into a lather and proceed to exfoliate all parts of the face avoiding the eye contour area. Rinse well with warm water.

My take on this product :

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with orange extract comes packaged in a transparent good quality plastic tube, packed inside a cardboard box. This tube has a fixed white and red colored cap with a flap, which is pretty handy to use.

This exfoliating cleanser is very gentle and can be used on daily basis, for cleansing and rejuvenating your skin, be it morning or evening. I exfoliate and cleanse my face with this every day morning and sometimes in the evenings. It removes all impurities and any makeup residues and cleanses the skin thoroughly. Skin feels fresh and rejuvenated.

It is an orange colored smooth gel textured cream cleanser with very fine granules. It feels soft and smooth to apply; the granules are hardly felt, but do a good job of cleansing and exfoliating the skin. To get best results, I apply with wet hands on a wet face in circular motions. It is very handy for daily use in summer when the climate is hot and humid and my face skin needs mild exfoliating on daily basis. It has a nice smell, which is not overwhelming.

Does not dry your skin. My skin type is Combination, and it works well ! The company claims as it is suitable for all skin tones. As it is summer in UAE, this works well for me !

It does not dry, nor irritate or break out on the skin.

Overall, a great product.

Price Point : A little expensive on the side, but worth it ! Retails for US $38 / AED 170

for a standard size! 

Availability ? 

  • Sephora Middle east
  • Paris Gallery
  • Wojooh 
  • Blooming Dales
  • Clarins counters

You can also purchase this product online.

Will I recommend this product ? Yes, if you want a cleanser cum mild exfoliator for regular use.

Will I repurchase ? Yes!

Would you give a try ? Please let me know your thoughts!

Until then….

SEPHORA INTENSIVE INSTANT MOISTURIZER + CREAM – DOES IT WORK???

Hey my loves, hope you are all having a great day ! Today’s review is about a very interesting product from Sephora Brand. As you all know, the summer have officially began and the days are too long now than usual now! :p 

Dehydration, dryness , lack of radiance , no brightness is all that every lady, or woman will face now. So the same thing happened to me as well, I was looking out for a good moisturizer, that should satisfy my skin thirst as well as be the perfect makeup base too.

WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS ONE ? 

Finding that one go-to moisturizer that combines the perfect fit for your particular skin with a price tag you can live with has proven to be a lifelong quest for a lot of us.  Not to mention that once you do find one, you’re skin is likely to change and start needing something else.

Well if you’re one who doesn’t want to spend high-end department store prices on your everyday products, Sephora Intensive Instant Moisturizer might be something to look at.  Described as a light yet very moisturizing cream, it’s oil free and suitable for all skin types.  Of course, all moisturizers will be more compatible with some skin types than other.  

sephora moisturizer

DESCRIPTION : A continuous source of moisture for stunning skin, even without makeup.

With fatigue, pollution , changes of temperature…… the skin produces less HYALURONIC ACID , a vertible ((natural reservoir)) for the skin’s hydration.

This nourishing moisturizer, enriched in a hyaluronic booster complex , has a dual action:

INSTANTLY, it recharges the skin with hyaluronic acid of natural origins, as if soaked in water, the skin is :

  • Smoother : 87%
  • More radiant : 81%
  • More beautiful : 84%

Day after Day, it helps the skin to produce more hyaluronic acid, for non-stop hydration that lasts up to 3 days after the last use.

The skin quality visibly improves. 

Clinically, proven tolerance and effectiveness, non- comedogenic. 

PACKAGING:

It comes in a transparent glass jar with WHITE cap. It is not a very comfortable packaging to take the product out (compared to pump type pack). The white  cap gets hand prints which require cleaning.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE SEPHORA MOISTURIZER:

This moisturizer absorbs into my skin very nice and quick. It makes me feel soft and smooth. It goes on creamy and smooth into the skin immediately, without any greasiness. It leaves me hydrated the whole day.

I always apply this on my face before using foundation.  I use this as my night cream as well. I cleanse my skin and apply this before bed. If the skin is very dry, I feel a burning sensation when applied initially. But after a day or two, this moisturizer will make the skin smooth and free from dryness.

It is the best moisturizer I have ever tried. It is a very simple moisturizer with very subtle and clean scent. The fragrance is sweet and refreshing. When I apply this moisturizer, I feel moisturized the whole day. I also apply this to my hands. It feels very silky.

According to me, this product does a very good job for this price. Without a good moisturizer the foundation will also look very cakey and patchy. I feel it is a very good investment. 

The HYALURONIC ACID provides with instant radiance to the skin and makes the face well moisturized! And I have been using this for the past one whole month, it works very well. 

WHERE TO BUY ?

It is available across all the sephora counters, and can be availed online. 

http://www.sephora.ae

http://www.sephora.com

Retails for AED 89.

WILL I REPURCHASE ? Yes, Definitely !

CONCLUSION : It seems as though the biggest benefit you’ll get from this moisturizer  is as a decent moisturizer for all types of skin.   So if you want a decent affordable moisturizer, go with Sephora Intensive Instant Moisturizer. 

Would you buy it ? Let me know !

until next post,
