There are some products that you never want to switch. You love them and continue to restock. Here are the products that have been my favorite for 2 years in a row because of their quality, texture and effectiveness. Hope you guys like them.  1.  Natural Vibes Ayurvedic Tea Tree Face Wash I am on my second bottle of this face wash and I have already purchased the third one. This has been my go to face wash because it is a gentle cleanser with calming effect thanks to the tea tree ingredient in it. One of the best cleansers for acne prone skin or combination skin.  Link to buy : 2. Laneige Lip Balm You would have seen this lip balm in my other posts and videos as well. I love this as night treatment for my lips. It provides hydration, softens the lips and takes away the dryness.  I also use it just before my makeup to moisturise my lips. This helps any lipstick to glide smoothly.  PRO TIP: Apply this balm 10 minutes before makeup and just before

Blend It Raw Apothecary Rose Mist, Basil Mist / Toner | Review | Brand Awareness series #2

Hey guys,  Today I am going to share my review on yet another Indian Brand " Blend It Raw Apothecary" founded by Aarushi . The brand started with  organic essential oils and cold-pressed unrefined carrier oils, but later expanded its range to include unrefined clays, pure floral waters (hydrosols), waxes, & fruit, and plant butters which are all ethically sourced from small farmers, NGOs, certified organic manufacturers and suppliers.  (You will be making a social contribution while buying your skin care products!) I love this brand for some DIY recipes which I can create for my skin care and also, for its amazing mists/toners/hydrosols. Let's talk about Hydrosols :  Hydrosols are distilled water used for aroma-therapeutic purposes. These hydrosols act like toners but are more effective than our usual toners. I mean a Rose Hydrosol is more effective than a rose toner.:) I love the overall concept of these Hydrosols. MRP: 400 INR each Shelf l

DIOR Hydra life water BB SPF 30 review

Hey guys, I bought this Dior BB lotion at Sephora when I was in Delhi. So here is my quick review: MRP: 5000 INR Qty: 30 ml Shade : I was matched to the shade 020, and it looks absolutely fine on my skin. For reference: I am MAC NC 35-40 with yellow undertones. Texture: It's like a lotion with creamy consistency. Finish: After applying, it gives a nice dewy finish on the skin and moisturizes which is enough for oily or combination skin but dry skin beauties may need to moisturize the skin before using it. Coverage: Sheer to light medium My thoughts: I like it for adding luminosity to my skin when it feels dull. It has SPF 30 which is good. It looks natural on skin and has never given me any breakouts either. This BB also has good staying power (4-6 hrs) BUT, this water BB comes out easily if I wipe off my face. It is a sheer coverage and doesn't hide pigmentation etc. It's not even water or sweat resistant. It is a good option in winter, but in sum

Hi everyone! Today I am going to review these sheet masks from the South Korean popular brand The Face Shop. You can also read my review on The Face Shop BB Power Perfection (Miracle finish) . I ordered these sheet masks from Nykaa along with my HG BB cushion cover from The Face shop. That time, these sheet masks were on discount and I got 5 masks free with the purchase of 5 masks. Hurray! I am going to review the Rice sheet mask and Lemon sheet mask today. About the product: Both the sheets masks are for brightening the dull skin and imparting a healthy glow to skin. MRP : 100 INR Ingredients : (given in the pic above) How to use : (shown in the pic above) My experience: I was very excited to use it as it was my first ever sheet mask. I like to do all such things with my skin in the night time because skin gets plenty of rest time and the effect of the product shows more on the skin after a good night's sleep.  So, I cleansed my skin, sprayed my favo
