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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 : Arabian Gold 3D Henna Cone!

Hey guys,

For this last Eid, my husband got me a special henna cone by the brand Arabian Gold. Two things that were written on the cone, immediately caught my attention :

● 3D color
● Clean within 2 minutes

Not to mention the extremely colorful packaging!

Arabian Gold henna cone

I was quite intrigued. I always sleep overnight with henna on, so that I can get the most intense color. However, this cone was different. I decided to try it out. As I started applying it, I understood how it works.

It is jet black in color and very shiny on application. It dries pretty fast (even though not in 2 mins as mentioned on the tube) and it looks exactly like a tattoo. It also changes color to a golden-ish color. It’s very pretty to see.

As soon as it is dried, you can peel the design off and the color is absolutely intense!. It’s so surprising. But one thing is sure, this thing contains chemicals.  Otherwise it wouldn’t work like this.

These are the designs I did with it :

3D henna design

On top right side, you can see how it looks immediately after application. Then, in the next pic, it has a golden tint. It’s dried & ready for removal.

3D Henna design

On top left side, you can see that I have peeled back a small part & kept it aside.

Here is another surprising thing. It fades fast. The next day itself it faded to the level where normal henna would be on the 5th day or so.

The tube is bigger than a regular henna tube (like the green Singh tube which I usually buy). Overall, I would recommend this henna cone, if you need to get amazing results fast for just an occasion or so.

Price : Rs 25 (A regular cone costs only Rs 10).

I got this from Navaratna Hypermarket, Kerala.
