Review : My Shopping Experience at Born Pretty Store!

Hey guys!

Today I am reviewing Born Pretty Store, an online shopping site that ships worldwide. I have got 6 items from there. Please find my views on them below :

Born Pretty store

1) Bonnie Choice matte liquid lip color – This is in the color Human Nature #6. It’s an extremely pigmented, creamy, matte purple color. On my hand swatch you can see the exact color. But on lips, it tends to go lighter.. a more natural color which I quite loved. It’s waterproof and thus long lasting.

Bonnie Choice

Lips

The applicator wand is soft and very convenient for application. One coat would do the trick. So this bottle will last a good while.

Price : $3.59 for a 7gms bottle.

It’s available in 7 other colors too!.

2) Facial Mixing Silicone brush – This is my absolute favourite of the 6 items I got. It’s just so fantastic. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know what a skincare fanatic I am.

Mud mask face brush

What I love the most about silicone products is that they are very hygienic. They don’t harbour bacteria like the conventional face brushes. I got this in the color pink.

Mud mask face brush

This little beauty tool helps keep my hands clean when mixing and applying face masks. It’s so handy, lightweight and easy to use. It’s ergonomically designed for a perfect facial application experience.

Price – $2.39

It’s available in 4 other colors!

3) After 90 Matte lipstick – Got this in the color #19 Charming. It’s a gorgeous nude color but on application it takes on a light pink color. Even though I love it’s texture, I feel it would look better on lighter skin tone than WOC. It has an outer and inner packaging & the tube itself looks different from a typical lipstick tube.

Pink lipstick

Pink lips

Price – $2.59 for a tube containing 3.8 gms.

It comes in 9 other colors too, even though 8 of them seems to be ‘Sold out’ for some time now.

4) Lovely Puppet lip balm – These are probably the cutest lip balms ever. Shaped like little ladies wearing Kimono, these are clear, smells soo fruity & is moisturising.

Lip balm

Price – $0.99 for a 2.4gms tube.

When you order this, you can’t select a Kimono pattern. A random one will be sent to you.

5) Magical Halo Lip/Eye liner – I got this in the number 14. It’s a slight pinkish purple color. I chose this because I thought it would go well with the two lip colors I have chosen.

Lip liner

It is not pigmented at all. I didn’t like it’s quality. This is my least favourite item of this lot.

Price – $0.99 for a 1.1gms pencil.

6) Bonnie Choice Liquid concealer – I like the texture of this one. It’s a creamy formula, eaay to work with and to apply with the applicator wand.

Concealer

Unfortunately due to some mistake I made during the ordering process, I chose the lighest color. That is so not like myself at all, that at first I thought it was a mistake from the store’s side. But I checked my order and there it was as clear as day.. I chose #10 instead of #30. It’s available in 6 colors.

Price : $2.99 for a 6 gms tube.

Overall, my shopping experience at Born Pretty store was an easy breezy one. They stock over 10,000 products & is very inexpensive. The staff are very courteous and very helpful should you need any help. They ship worldwide for free. Mine reached via post in just 10 days (from China to India)!.

Discount Code

The people over at Born Pretty Store were kind enough to offer my readers a 10% discount code!. It’s WER1H10. Please note that it is valid for original price products only (meaning it’s not applicable on already discounted/on-sale products).

If the above discount code is used by 5 or more of you, they have agreed to sponsor a giveaway for you guys, right here on my blog. So, I urge you to check out this awesome shopping site.

Five beauty products that are totally worth the money!

When considering which beauty products to buy, you might be wondering whether or not it’s worth it to spend more. Are less expensive products just as effective as their more expensive counterparts? You might be surprised to learn that when it comes to beauty products, sometimes spending more means getting better results.

Find out which beauty products are totally worth the money. From makeup and skincare to hair products, here’s the low down on products that you shouldn’t skimp on when it comes to finances.

Moisturizer

Moisturiser

When it comes to facial moisturizers, you’ll want a quality product that’s filled with nourishing ingredients. Some of the less expensive products on the market tend to have ingredients that can cause adverse effects including drying, acne, or even redness.

If you have oily skin, you’ll need a light moisturizer that’s free of oils and will be absorbed by the skin quickly. On the other hand, if your skin is very dry, you’ll want a hydrating moisturizer that will leave your skin looking dewy and radiant.

For your whole body, a moisturizer designed for the body is ideal, and, like your facial moisturizer, should be designed for your skin type.

Because of the many different factors that go into choosing a moisturizer, it’s perfectly fine to splurge on one that’s designed specifically for your skin.

Primers

There are dozens of types of primers on the market. There’s face primer, eye primer, and lip primer. There are color-correcting primers, primers with SPF, primers that prevent acne, cream primers, gel primers, and even powder primers. With so many different primers on the market, you might wonder, Which one do I need?

It’s wise to choose a quality primer that you can use over the entire face, but if you’re using cream shadows it’s good to invest in a good eye primer. Love red lipstick? You might want to invest in a quality lip primer, too.

When choosing a primer, again it’s important to know your skin type. There are primers that will hydrate, hide blemishes, brighten the skin, and tighten the pores. Understand what you need and choose a primer that will do more than add wear time to your makeup.

Foundation

Foundation

Foundation is one of those products that you can waste a lot of money on if you don’t get one that’s perfect for your skin. This is why it’s recommended to spend a little more on a product that you know will work for you. Spending more on foundation is absolutely worth it.

Inexpensive foundations might provide little coverage, dry out the skin, or end up looking cake-y. In some cases, inexpensive foundation brands do not have enough shades to match your skin tone. Having a foundation that matches your skin tone closely is absolutely necessary for a flawless look. With that said, it’s best to just skip the drugstore.

Not sure which foundation is right for you? Head on over to your local makeup counter and talk to an expert. They’ll help you find the right shade and formulation for your skin tone and skin type. Do you need a tinted moisturizer or a full-coverage foundation? These are questions that they can help answer.

Also, keep in mind that during the summer and winter months, your foundation shade will change. This is another reason why spending more is better when it comes to your foundation.

Hair Brushes

Not only will cheap brushes wear out more quickly than a pricier brush, but the bristles on cheap brushes can actually damage your hair!

The plastic bristles on inexpensive brushes can pull and break your hair, leading to split ends and hair that has completely broken off. Boar bristle hair brushes are gentler on the hair, reducing breakage. They distribute natural scalp oils throughout the hair shaft, boosting shine and hydration. are highly recommended for all hair types. They do cost much more than the cheap brushes, but are totally worth the investment—and in some cases, can last a lifetime!

Shampoo and Conditioner

If you’ve ever tried a drugstore brand of shampoo or conditioner and then switched to a more expensive brand, chances are you notice a huge difference in the two.

According to experiments conducted by Huddersfield University and led by chemist Dr. Laura Waters, expensive shampoos actually do provide better treatment to your hair in comparison to the less expensive shampoos. Most of the cheaper shampoos do not contain conditioning agents, which reduce static after washing. It was also found that the less expensive products make hair attract even more dirt!

Needless to say, by switching to a high-quality shampoo and conditioner, you can go longer in between washings and reduce static and breakage, leading to healthier hair. So, it’s absolutely worth it to spend more on shampoo and conditioner!

The next time that you’re shopping for beauty products, remember that less doesn’t always mean more. From skincare products to hair care, it’s absolutely worth it to spend more on certain brands.

Review : Glamego May 2018 Beauty box!

Hey guys,

Today am reviewing Glamego’s May box that was specially dedicated to Mother’s day that was celebrated on May 13th. This box is called the ‘Beauty Emergency Kit’ & contains 4 full size products and 1 deluxe sample.

Glamego May 2018 box

I have got to comment about this box though. Visually, I think this is Glamego’s cutest box yet. With pictures of baby animals printed on the whole box, it’s just adorable 😍. On the inside it says, “💛 U Mom” & a series of praising words that show the love of a mom for her child.

Cute baby animals

Mother's day

There is a small card with the hashtag #DateWithMom, which gave the subscribers a chance to win a date with their mom in the best place in their city by posting a pic with their mom on social media and tagging Glamego in it. Then there is a leaflet that shows all the products in the box and their descriptions/prices.

Now on to the details of each product :

Votre Multi vitamin & Rejuvenating night creme – First time hearing about this brand. It’s an Ayurvedic, highly restorative night time moisturiser which is a blend of vitamins & antioxidants that moirurize and protect the skin.

Votre night creme

It’s thick and rich and has a luxurious texture. It has a very strong scent, almost like products meant for men. Other than the scent, I like this cream a lot. It’s very moisturising & hydrating.

This is the deluxe sample that I mentioned earlier. However, it’s almost a full sized product itself. The one in the box contains 30 gms while it’s full sized one contains 50 gms. This 30 gms one itself is worth Rs 1550!

Rohto Acnes Mentho-Cool pimple defence face wash – Acnes is Japan’s No.1 acne care brand. This product is a newbie in India. Since this is a specific product for acne, I didn’t try it out because I’ve normal/dry skin. But it’s definitely a boon for those who have acne, to find this in their box!. It’s 50 gms, comes in a tube & is worth Rs 99.

Pimple defence face wash

Seer Secrets lip scrub – I am so absolutely in love with this one!. I could say it was love at first sight 💓. It’s packaging itself is in a cute little round container.

Vegan lip scrub

I don’t think it can get any more organic than this. It’s all natural & vegan. It’s ingredients list is – Raw cane sugar, almond oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, liquorice extract, rambutan extract & date extract.

It smells absolutely delicious. I actually felt like eating it up. Lol!. It does a great job of scrubbing the lips and revealing baby smooth lips. It’s slightly on the dry side though. I prefer lip scrubs to be slightly wet/viscous so that it’s easier to work with. But that said, I do love this product a lot..

This 8 gms tub costs Rs 261.

Bella Voste Sheer creme Satin touch lust lipstick – Super long name for a lipstick!. I got the one in 10 Satin Pink. It’s a gorgeous, matte finish purplish pink. It’s a gorgeous color that suits Indian skin tone. I love it’s creamy and smooth formula. This is hands down the best lipstick I’ve used in my life. That’s saying a lot especially since I’ve used so many lipstick brands..

Bella voste satin touch lip stick

Lips

This one which has 4.2gms is worth Rs 225.

Bella Voste nail polish – I got a pale/icy green kind of color. It’s in the color 13 Perfect Pick. This is a 9+ toxin free nail enamel that’s non yellowing and formulated in Luxembourg.

Green nail polish

This 9 ml bottle is worth Rs 249.

Overall, I am beyond impressed with this Glamego box. Every product in it is so high quality and useful. This box contains products worth over Rs 2350 but costs only Rs 299!. So, definitely try it out. You can sign up here.

Review : Glamego Apr 2018 Beauty Box!

Hello!

I fell in love with the April Glamego box even before opening it, because of the perfectly summery magnetised box the products came in, featuring a hot pink stick ice cream that’s started to melt. It captures the feel of the very hot & humid climate in India right now.

Glamego April box

The box has 4 full sized products & 1 deluxe sample. These products are all about fighting the sun and staying cool in this summer!. Here they are in detail :

Tjori Anti Tan pack – With wild turmeric (Kasturi manjal) as the main ingredient, this perfect age old formula helps in removing tan. It’s a loose powder and I used it by mixing it with water to form a smooth paste. You could also mix it in some rose water. I left it on for 15 mins and washed it off. My skin felt glowing after using this. It has a really pungent/strong smell.

Tjori wild turmeric facial

Other ingredients in it are bentonite clay, fuller’s earth, natural white clay, essential oils etc. It came in a 50 gms container and is worth Rs 525.

My Island Kiss lip balm – This one’s packaging is simply gorgeous and it has an international level of quality to it. The tinted lip balm I got is in the color Bunny Pink. It’s not sticky and is easy to apply. It has SPF 15.

My island kiss lip moisturizer

It is non toxic, organic & petroleum free. Ingredients list – Tropical Kokum & Mango butter, organic beeswax, stevia, organic carrot seed oil, pure castor oil, Japanese Cherry blossom essential oil, organic Macadamia nut oil, vitamin e oil and natural organic color. It’s 100% pure!. It smells absolutely lovely and yummy 😍. The tube contains 14gms and is worth Rs 499.

Vedic Line Gold facial – This box contains 6 sachets of different products that’s to be used in a step by step process starting from cleanser and ending with a serum. It’s ingredients are all known for their brightening property. This one can be used even as a bridal face pack.

Vedic line gold facial kit

I have high expectations of it. Since it’s best used prior to an event/occasion, am saving it for later. I will be doing a separate post for reviewing this and update the link here later. This at home facial kit is worth Rs 350.

Nelf USA compact – I was so in need of a compact and that’s when I received this!. What a surprise ☺. This one has SPF 18 in it. I wore it several times now and can say it roughly lasts 3 hours on my face especially since the hot climate makes me sweat bullets.. I love carrying this in my vanity for a quick touch up. This is worth Rs 350.

NELF USA compact powder

Natural Bath & Body Sea Clay face masque – This green colored clay mask is clarifying and I had doubts about using it, since I’ve normal/dry skin.

However, for the purpose of this review, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised that it left my skin feeling and looking good. It didn’t dry out my skin at all. It has a lovely scent. There is a heating up sensation immediately after application. Nothing to worry about though!. I do recommend it for all skin types except those with sensitive skin.

The full sized version of this is worth Rs 150.

Overall, this box is definitely summery and Glamego really excelled in putting together this box. Totally, this box is worth over Rs 1800, but you pay only Rs 299 for this subscription. So, definitely try it out. You can sign up here.

Review : NMNL Japanese Beauty Box!

Hey guys!

I’m thrilled to review a Japanese beauty subscription box!. It’s NMNL, short for ‘NoMakeNoLife’. They sent me their box from Dec 2017 for review.

“nomakenolife” is a popular phrase used in Japan by people who believe that makeup is essential to their lives. So, NMNL embraces that philosophy and brings high-quality products in a monthly box. The best part? – They ship worldwide!.

Here is the box I received :

NMNL Japanese beauty box

It contains 5 full sized products. Here are the details :

Matcha bubble bath by Sweets Maison – This one comes in such a cute little plastic bottle that is designed like a champagne bottle. The product is really thick. I quite liked the feel of it. A little goes a long way. It’s light green in color and it says here that it’s fragrance is that of Matcha. Personally, I haven’t tried Matcha but I’ve heard great things about it.

It can be used as a shower gel too. It lathers well and leaves the skin with a slight lingering scent.

Matcha bubble bath

L’air de savon ice body milk – This came in a bottle shaped like a soap bar. It smells amazing and is very creamy. It gets absorbed into the skin super fast. It’s in the scent Eternal Moments. This is my favorite product in this box.

Body milk

Rosy Rosa retractable lip brush – It’s my very first time seeing a retractable lip liner. I have only heard of it before. This black and silver casing almost looks like a little pen. It’s handy and travel friendly. The brush is sturdy and feels high quality. I am glad they included this in the box.

Profael smooth hand wrap – This is a hand cream that came accompanied with gloves that are made with 100% cotton. The cream is very thick and almost has a balm like texture. I applied that and wore the gloves overnight and it left my skin feeling super soft snd moisturised by morning.

Dolly Wink vivid pink color eyeliner – A pink colored eyeliner is so not my type, so I gave it to my little cousin who loves makeup. However, I did try it out for the purpose of this review.

It is buttery and easy to apply. The color is really vivid as it’s name suggests, especially in natural light. This brand feels high end.

Pink eyeliner

The last thing in the box was a booklet that described all the products, in English. This helped a lot since all products have Japanese explanations on them.

Overall, I love NMNL. I highly recommend you try this. It’s priced at $29.99/month. You can get $3 off your first box by using my code Neenz87.

They sent it by post and it reached me from Japan to India in 2 weeks & 2 days. Do check it out to try Japanese brands/products that are not otherwise available to us locally.

Review : Glamego Feb 2018 Beauty Box!

Hey dearies,

With February’s box, Glamego has just reaffirmed the fact that they are indeed India’s No.1 beauty subscription box. Titled ‘Classy Flaunt’, this time the box contains 4 full sized products worth Rs 2000, while the box itself costs only Rs 299!

Glamego February box

Here are the products in detail :

● Mcaffeine Choco face pack – This comes in 2 variants – gel based for dry skin and clay based for oily skin. I like that Glamego is truly a personalized box. I received the one for dry skin because they asked me my preference beforehand.

Mcaffeine choco face pack

Chocolate and caffeine, both are powerhouse ingredients that bring out the glow in your skin while pumping it with antioxidants. This mask looks just so yummy and smells delicious. God knows how I resisted just eating it up. Lol!.

I applied this creamy mask for about 15 mins and washed off with cool water. It left my skin looking radiant and youthful. I love this brand, which is India’s first caffeinated personal care brand.

This product is worth Rs 359 for a tub containing 25ml.

● Kronokare Pollu-Stop face – This colorless mist is one of a kind, I feel. It helps in warding off pollution from our face. How cool is that!. It’s perfect for those who spend a lot of time outside. It actually acts as an invisible shield against pollution nano particles and thus helps protect, nourish & soothe the skin.

Kronokare Pollu stop face

It has a strong scent which am not really a fan of. The product itself gives a barely there look when sprayed on the face. It can be used before or after applying a face cream. It comes fitted with a fine nozzle and as such spraying with it creates a nice mist.

It specifically says ‘face’ in it’s name because this same product is available for the hair too that helps our tresses fight against pollution. It’s actually one of the products in Glamego’s March box.

This product is free of sulfates, silicone, parabens, fragrance or mineral oil. It’s worth Rs 495 for a bottle that contains 30 ml.

● The Nature’s Co Radiance face cream – This is hands down my favorite product in this box. It’s main ingredient is saffron, something that’s very expensive and wonderful. It smells of saffron itself.

Nature's Co saffron radiance face cream

Saffron helps in making the skin radiant and am so glad I got to try out this cream. The texture of it is so unlike regular face creams. It’s balm like, slightly viscous and yet when applied on skin, it slides on smoothly like a rich cream. A little goes a long way.

[This pic is from my Instagram. Do follow me, if you aren’t already].

The tub is super tiny, containing only 25 ml. But, guess what?. It costs a cool Rs 550!.

The ingredients list is as follows : Saffron, Aloe Vera extract, Grapeseed oil, Jojoba oil, Wheatgerm oil, Almond oil, cream base, aroma & natural preservatives. This brand is cruelty free & eco friendly.

● Bella Voste Perfect lip gloss – This was one of the products I received in the January box too (read that review here). But I selected a different shade this time. It’s a light, gorgeous pink shade called Pop of Pink.

Bella voste pop of pink

Overall, I love that the general theme of this box is to bring out the best in your skin. I am all about skincare as some of you already know.

I highly recommend Glamego. You can sign up here.

Review : OPI’s Got the Blues for Red Nail Lacquer!

Hello!

Today am doing a mini review of an OPI nail lacquer that I received for review a while back.

It’s a blue based red color and thus rightfully named ‘Got the Blues for Red’. I love the way OPI names their shades.

OPI Got the blues for red

This garnet shade is quite classy and elegant. I feel it would look the best on pale skin. Even my husband mentioned it doesn’t suit me (my Indian skin tone) much. Maybe it’s because it’s blue based.

Anyways the formula of this one is really nice. It dries extremely fast and gives a smooth application. One coat gives a glassy effect while two coats give a lovely opaque look. At the most, I have worn this for 5 days straight and it didn’t chip during that time period.

Also, if you don’t know already, OPI is a 3-free brand, meaning they don’t contain the three toxic chemicals DBP (dibutyl phthalate), toluene and formaldehyde.

Review : GlamEgo Jan 2018 Beauty Box!

Hey guys,

Am so excited to review GlamEgo’s very first box of this year!. It’s aptly new year themed and it’s so adorable. The #NoResolutions hashtag made me smile.

Other than the picture in the front, every other space on the box is covered with typical resolutions people make such as : Lose weight, Grow hair (which is my personal, one & only resolution this year) & also some not so typical resolutions such as : Talk less, listen to him, do not freak, less instagram etc!

Glamego jan 2018

Such a fun box at the very first glance. On opening it, there is a card which says “Thanks for making GalmEgo India’s No.1 Beauty box”. Well, no wonder there. At just Rs 299 per month, GlamEgo is definitely worth it. This month’s products which concentrate on the theme of “Lap of luxury” are simply incredible and worth upto Rs 2500!.

At the back of the card, they have listed the price and description of the 4 products included in the box. It contains 3 full sized products and 1 deluxe sample.

On to the products :

1) Bio Bloom’s Face oil : This is THE most fabulous thing I’ve ever seen in ANY beauty subscription box ever!. I am a die hard fan of face oils because it takes your skin care regime to the next level.

Bio Bloom face oil


This one ticks all the right boxes :

* It’s 100% natural
* It comes in a tinted, brown glass bottle which is great to retain the properties of the natural blend of oils
* It is age defying (talk about antiaging and I am done for.. it’s my weakness!) plus a radiance booster
* Contains a potent mix of wonderful oils – Apricot kernel oil, carrot seed oil, rosehip oil, geranium oil, lemon oil, frankincense oil, myrrh, rosemary, vitamin E & evening primrose. That’s it. No other unintelligible & unreadable ingredients!. The Vitamin E in this acts as a natural preservative.
* It has a dropper to dispense the product. Is it just me or do you find droppers just so freaking amazing, convenient & expensive looking??..
* It’s suitable for all skin types & for anyone above the age of 18.

It has a lovely scent, a potent kind of smell that lingers on the skin and is dominantly of lemon & frankincense. It’s not a heavy, greasy oil. It isn’t that lightweight too. It’s in the middle but gets absorbed into the skin super fast and leaves it looking glowy with a light sheen. Its a beautiful product. I am so in love with it. Because of all it’s ingredients that are expensive in their own right, this premium product is pretty expensive, costing Rs 1499 for a 15ml bottle.

The bottle will surely last me a long while since I use it only at night (after serum, before night cream) & only use 6 – 7 drops each time. I’ve used this for some days now and I do feel my skin looks like it’s glowing, in the mornings. It’s age defying results can only be seen after a long term use, however it’s ingredients list makes me believe that this brand knows what they are talking about!

2) Bella Voste Lip Gloss in the color Rust Crush – This is my first time trying this brand and I quite loved it’s quality. It’s packaged well in a long, glass tube. The pigmentation is definitely great and it stays on the lips for several hours,  while imparting moisture to the lips. It’s formulated in Italy and is mineral oil & talc free.

Bella Voste lip gloss

Rust Crush is a beautiful nude pink with the slightest, barely-there golden shimmer. It’s an everyday-wear kind of color. Another plus is that it’s non sticky and feels great on the lips. GlamEgo lets the subscriber choose tge color they like. I had 4 choices and I selected this one.  Here is the lip swatch :

Rust Crush lip swatch

Price : Rs 599 for the tube containing 3.2ml

3) Natural Bath & Body’s (NBB) Vital Nourishment Cream : This lightweight, white colored cream gets absorbed right into the skin as if it is quenching up the thirst of dry skin!. It smells citrus like and is such a heavenly, luxurious smell. Their tag is “Your lighter-whiter-brighter fix” (though I do not support the ‘whiter’ look claim).

NBB Vital nourishing cream

It’s ingredients are mainly Vitamin C & Grapefruit, both of which are known to be skin brighteners. This one was a deluxe sample containing just 20 gms. It’s full sized one is valued at Rs 220.

4) Bio Bloom’s Handmade soap : For this 4th product, different people got different things in their boxes. It could have been any skincare /makeup product that’s worth upto Rs 350.

Hand made soap in India

I am glad to get this soap. It’s titled Romantic & has rose oil in it which gives a really great scent. It lathers just right and leaves the skin feeling soft.

All in all, I am in love with this box and feeling like a spoilt princess ♡. What a great value & a wonderful start to the new year!

Review : Balancing Essential Micellar Water Mist by Brillare Science!

Happy New Year, dear friends!

I always make sure the first thing I post in a new year is very special. Today am reviewing Brillare Science’s Balancing Essential Micellar Water Mist, which is very special indeed & my favorite cleanser/make up remover at the moment.

Before that, I wish to discuss about the brand. Their unique approach is about focusing on the entire list of ingredient that goes in formulating a product. Keeping the ingredients as natural as possible, using only the clinically verified actives, blending them with target delivery techniques and making them 100% free from harmful/toxic/allergic chemicals. So, it’s free from parabens, formaldehyde, artificial fragrance and color.

It works well for the following :

● Pore rebalance
● Deep cleaning
● Makeup removal

Micellar water mists are known to really deep clean. So, its perfect to use before going to bed at night or even while you are outside. It comes in a very sturdy plastic, handy spray bottle. The nozzle is tiny, so it sprays well and as it’s name says, is a mist.

The product looks and feeks like water. However when the bottle is agitated, it becomes frothy. When I read ‘pore rebalance’, I automatically thought its for those with oily skin. However, it’s thankfully for all skin types.

The way it should be used is to spray 4 – 5 times on to a cotton pad. It immediately starts to foam.

I have darkened the pic so that the foam is more clear.

It feels so soft and silky on the skin and leaves the skin looking very clean, plump and youthful. The key actives are Red Algae extract, Papaya extract & gycerin. It’s smell is absolutely amazing & luxurious!.

These are the sides of the packaging.

Price : Rs 750 for a 100 ml bottle. It’s definitely on the pricey side. However, considering all the goodness packed to it, it’s a worthy investment.
