Review : July 2015 Glambox!

My eyes literally popped out when I saw Glambox’s July edition. It was Givenchy’s exclusive box!!. I was exhilarated since I have never even tried Givenchy before. It is so high end!. Sorry for the delayed review by the way. The box came with an outer cover that said ‘Givenchy Iconic Products’. It looks so classy.

Fotor_144025744031071

The box came with 4 products, along with bragging rights for getting to own these beauties ♡

Fotor_144025760910746

1) Noir Couture Mascara : The product comes in the most beautiful bottle. It’s color is black & the shade is 1 Black Satin. The wand is unlike any other I have seen before. It’s a three-balled brush!. It helps in giving clump free, gorgeous looking lashes in just a couple of strokes. The result is very natural looking and nothing over-the-top dramatic. This is already in my makeup bag and am loving it. The sample in the box is 4g while it’s full sized version (8g) is priced at AED 170.

Fotor_144026114485394

Fotor_144026081023320

2) Le Rouge Lipstick : I am very much a lipstick lover and this is the product that most excited me in the box. It’s a mini, stylish & luxurious looking, coral pink lipstick. The shade is 202 Rose Dressing. It’s perfect for everyday wear. It is very creamy and feels luxurious & hydrating on the lips. Just one application gives great pigmentation. It’s a soft color that looks so pretty. I wore it for about 12 hours, during which I ate & drank too. I found that for about 7 – 8 hours, the color stays on and then it fades into a pink stain on the lips.

Fotor_144025847340268

The matte box it came in is super hot. On sliding out an inside compartment, I found the little beauty wrapped in paper which had the words Le Rouge printed on it. Loved the way it’s packaged. The sample in the box is 1.5g while it’s full sized version (3.4g) is priced at AED 170.

3) Let Soin Noir Cream : This cream is nothing like I have seen before. First of all, this face cream is a pearlescent black in color!. It contains two exceptional algae, that is known for it’s resistance against extreme climatic conditions. It helps preserve & revitalize skin’s life forces. On application, skin just drinks up this cream & looks instantly plump, replenished & youthful. What an amazing & potent skin formula!. I love it. The sample in the box is 5 ml while it’s full sized version (50 ml) is priced at a whopping AED 1,685!

Fotor_144025802544541

Fotor_144025931687123

4) Hydra Sparkling First Step Luminescence Moisturizing lotion : This is the only product in the box that isn’t in their signature black packaging. It comes in a blue little bottle and even though the product looks blue too, it is in fact translucent when you take it out on to the skin. It is intensely moisturizing and quite luxurious. The sample in the box is 15 ml while it’s full sized version (200 ml) is priced at AED 165.

Fotor_144026102868395

The box didn’t contain any full sized product or vouchers, but can I even complain?. Absolutely not!. Overall, what an amazing box that gave me the chance to experience four iconic Givenchy products!. Glambox did choose a good mix of both skincare & cosmetics for this box!

Review : June 2015 Glambox!

Hey guys!

Glambox’s June box was Arabian Nights themed. Sorry I delayed doing this post. But finally here are my thoughts on it!

1) Jergens Smoothing Oud moisturizer : Jergen’s body products are one of my favorites, especially their Soothing Aloe body lotion. I am happy to see a Jergens sample in this box. I love the Oud scent. Some hate it because it’s strong and intense. But even those people will love this Oud scented moisturizer because the scent in this one is so soft and alluring. It couldn’t get more soft and beautiful than this!. It is immensely hydrating and easily absorbs into the skin. I am definitely going to buy a full sized version of this soon. This moisturizer is made especially for dry skin. The sample in the box contains 25 ml. The full sized version (600 ml) is priced at AED 24.

Fotor_144008199279754

Fotor_144008077232895

Before & After

2) Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence parfum : This women’s perfume contains three notes that I totally love – Bergamot, Patchouli & Rose. It has a floral, woody scent that lingers on your skin for a long time. The sample contains a good 7.5ml and comes in an adorable little clear glass bottle with a light pink lid. It is going to be in my travel bag. The full sized version (100 ml) is priced at AED 275. The box also came with a little leaflet that offers 25% discount voucher for any future purchase of Yves Rocher products.

Fotor_144008126632331

3) Wow by Wojooh Lipstuck : Wojooh is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands with their quality products. This time, Glambox included a lipstick color that I have been wanting to try out. I am super excited to try it out. The color is 530 Oud Rose. It’s a nude pink, that will look nice on any skintone, if worn in the right manner.

Fotor_144008247462153

Lipstuck is an Extreme Wear Lip Lacquer that’s long lasting and intensely pigmented. A little goes a looong way!. Since it’s a lacquer, it’s dries very quickly, so you must act fast once it’s on your lips. It comes in a slim bottle with a wand attached to the lid. I found that applying with the wand results in product wastage. So I apply just enough on my lips in a dot form and quickly spread it with my finger. If you have a dark skintone, definitely use a lip liner when applying this color otherwise it wouldn’t blend with your complexion and will stand out as sickly pale. I have used Rimmel’s 1000 kisses lip liner in Black Tulip in a very soft manner and then applied Lipstuck.

Fotor_144008239450595

A single stroke using the wand & then the same, smudged. The color pay off is awesome!

The lacquer finish is just so gorgeous!. I am loving this product. The sample contains 4.5ml while it’s full sized version (6.5ml) is priced at AED 85. Definitely check out this everyday nude color.

Fotor_144008162184719

Elf Cosmetics has a matte lipstick in the shade Tea Rose. It’s one I have been wanting to try out. Even though it’s available on my favorite shopping site, I never bought it because I didn’t know if it would look good on me. Rose Oud is exactly that color but of higher quality!. This is why Glambox is an amazing concept. It introduces you to quality brands and colors and let’s you try out new products each month!.

4) Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nailpolish – This is the only full sized product in the box. This polish is a stylish black and the shade is called 340 Black Platinum. I had decided that from next time on I would actually apply nailpolish & click pix but this time I couldn’t since I have henna on my nails now.

Fotor_144008214710434

The applicator is very broad for easy application. This smart little bottle includes a base coat, strengthener, vital growth treatment, a breathtaking top coat, chip resistance, salon color & gel-like shine. This product contains 14.7ml & is priced at AED 39.

5) Tatu Bijoux – The box came with a strip containing 4 mini jewellery/henna inspired temporary tattoos. I haven’t tried it out yet but I am loving the intricate designs I got. I am excited to try it out for an upcoming event. Each design lasts for 5 – 7 days with care. Full size tattoos (24 x 16 cm) are prized at AED 155. The box also came with a 15% discount voucher that can be used on the next purchase. Visit their website to see some of their stunning designs & usages.

Fotor_144008264757165

6) Munchbox 50% discount code Munchbox looks like a fun site that delivers traditional, healthy snacks right to your doorstep. All their snacks are nutritionist approved, gluten free, vegan, portion controlled & contains no added sugar.

Fotor_144008106804337

Overall, I am in love with June’s Glambox. Such a lovely variety of products ♥

Review : Banjara’s Hibiscus Hair Care Powder!

Hey!

I am very much into haircare right now. I am searching for & trying new hair products, to give maximum support and care for my hair. That’s how I found out about Banjara’s Hibiscus powder. Hibiscus flowers are pretty known for their power to promote hair growth. Actually one can even make use of the hibiscus flowers growing in their gardens to make a DIY hair mask. There are tons of tutorials on how to do that, on YouTube. I don’t have hibiscus flowers at my home though and on my recent trip to the shopping mall, I found this pack which I thought would be great to try out. Hibiscus is effective in combating hair loss, dandruff and scalp irritation. It is also used as a remedy for premature greying. The herb acts as a good conditioner and moisturizer for the hair – making it soft and shiny.

Fotor_143979986744297

The pack comes with 5 sachets in them. Each of these packs contain 20 gms and it’s packed in such a way for easy usage. For each application, you can open one sachet and use it’s complete contents. I have seen bulk packs of this powder long before. In such cases, you need to transfer the powder into an airtight container so that it doesn’t solidify into little blocks over time. Banjara’s easy packaging helps to avoid this inconvenience.

Fotor_143979994674099

The hibiscus powder is brick red in color. I have long hair now (just above my hips) and 20 gms is enough to cover my scalp and hair. If you have short hair, a sachet is good for 2 applications and if you have very thick hair, you might need to use 2 sachets each time. Though my hair is long, it’s fine in texture.

Fotor_143980002567948

To use this, simply transfer a sachet’s content into a bowl and add just enough water to make it into a thick paste (or a level of consistency you personally like). The paste is a dark colored one. Apply it to your hair for 20 minutes (that’s the instruction on the packaging) and rinse off with water. I usually apply it for 40 mins. It’s herbal and putting it on for extra time won’t hurt. I don’t use shampoo while washing it off. Also, while applying it, part your hair section by section and apply it. This way you will cover your hair and scalp completely. Though the package suggests using it thrice a week, I been using it twice a week only. It has a light, natural smell that stays on lightly on the hair for a few hours.

I have completed one entire pack now (five applications). One of the main results I noticed after using this is that my hair is more black in color and has a glossy shine to it. Overall, I am in love with this and I am sure to check out the other hair care powders by Banjara’s.

Price : Rs. 90 (AED 5.07) for 100 gms.

I bought this from Navaratna Hypermarket, Moonnupeediga, Kerala. This product can be found in any leading supermarkets.

Review : Pond’s Silk Cream!

Hey guys!

I recently got to try Pond’s Silk cream, which is one of Pond’s latest creams. The cream contains silk extracts and that’s why it’s called Silk Cream. Frankly speaking, I am more of an Olay girl and not a Pond’s fan. Most of their day creams that I have tried have left my skin either looking oily or whitish tinted. That being said, I would like to reinstate the fact that I am a crazy huge fan of Pond’s Intensive Cell ReGEN™ Super Serum. It works like a dream & no other serum even comes close to it!.

Pond'sSilk1

Onto the review of the Silk cream, the first thing that attracted me to it was the fact that it said on the packaging that it delivers 24 hr moisture and is a light non-greasy formula. I am very much into non-greasy formulas, that leave the skin looking supple and youthful. Another thing that was it’s size. It’s comes in a small, cute & handy container that contains only 29 gms, which is perfect for a trial.

Pond'sSilk2

The cream has a medium consistency and is white in color. It gets readily absorbed into the skin. A little doesn’t go a long way in this cream’s case. You need a good scoop to get full coverage of your face & neck. This tub should last about 15 to 20 days, depending on your usage. It has a very pleasant smell that lingers on mildly on the skin for a short while.

This Pond’s day cream lives upto it’s promises. It delivers silky, smooth skin that is supple & youthful. It’s my first time being a fan of a Pond’s day cream. If you are already a fan of Pond’s or you would like to give a Pond’s cream a trial, I highly recommend the Silk cream. As for the 24 hr moisture claim, I didn’t test that part out. I did wear it for about 10 hours with nothing else on my skin and it still stayed the same – looking soft & nourished.

Price : Rs. 50 (AED 2.88!) for a tub containing 29 gms.

I bought it from Navaratna hypermarket, in Moonnupeediga, Kerala.
