Other Skincare products I use!

Hey guys!

When doing detailed posts on my skincare routine, I had decided to split it into three parts :

  • Night time routine (with all skincare basics),
  • Day time routine and
  • Other skincare products post, where I show all products that I haven’t shown in the above two posts.

So, this is the third part of my Skincare routine posts. Since, I didn’t want to show way too many products in the previous two posts and thus confuse you, I decided to do this one separately. Most of them have been reviewed earlier. If you wish to read and know more about the products, you may click the links to have them open in a new window. Here are all those products plus mini reviews, under each of the following category :

Makeup removers

1) Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle solution – I absolutely love this one. It is so gentle and yet does an amazing job of removing makeup and impurities from the skin. Price : AED 35 for 100 ml (travel size).

2) St. Ives Makeup Remover & Facial cleanser – This has been my favorite for years now. It’s really thick and a tube lasts for so long. It is parabens and phthalates free and is a gentle formula. It has chamomile in it which is so calming for the skin. Price : AED 16.50 for 170gms.

Cleansers/Face washes

1) Herbline Essentials White Lily & Ginger Face Wash – This is one of my latest favorites. I love this natural skincare brand and it’s products. They are so worth every penny you spend on them!. Read my full review here. Price : AED 109 for 150ml.

2) Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser – Another brand that I really love and recommend. This is for Normal / dry skin and thus perfect for me. Read my full review here. Price : AED 36.50 for 200ml.

3) The Face Shop Green Tea Cleansing Foam – My least favorite one. I still reach for it sometimes since I hate wasting products. Read my full review herePrice : AED 41 (on sale) for 170 ml.

4) Neutrogena Visibly Clear Daily Wash – This was gifted to me by Sally. This product is actually for combination/oily skin. It’s green in color and has a lovely consistency. When I use it, my skin feels tight but I immediately moisturize after that. You must be wondering why do I use it then!. It’s the smell of it!. It has the most amazing citrus scent. It is uplifting and refreshing. Still, I use it only occasionally. Price : AED 44.75 for 200ml.

Scrub

1) Everyuth Exfoliating Scrub – This is a very budget friendly scrub that I have been using quite regularly of late. Read my full review here. Price : Rs. 105 (AED 6.28) for 100 gms.

Serum

1) Mad Hippie Exfoliating serum – This is my love since last October. A phenomenal serum that should be in everyone’s skincare collection, if they are into an anti aging routine. Read my full review herePrice : $27.99 (AED 102.81) for 30ml. I bought it online and had it shipped to me here in UAE, from US in 2 days.

Lip balms

IMG_1778

1) Vaseline Healthy White lip care : This one is a very handy lip balm which I bought from India. It’s basically Vaseline in a tube but it’s consistency is more better suited to easily pump out of the tube. It protects against UV & lip darkening. It guarantees 24 hour+ moisturization and I definitely recommend it. Price : Rs. 60 (AED 3.59) for 9 gms.

2) Neutrogen 6 hour Protection lip balm : This is so hydrating, I cannot recommend it enough!. It delivers almost immediate results. Dry and chapped lips are a thing of the past when I carry this around with me. I love it. Read my full review here. Price : 16.50 for 15 ml.

3) Himalaya Herbals Lip balm : This one contains Carrot seed oil and wheatgerm oil. It is intensely nourishing and I highly recommend it. I bought it from India. Price : Rs. 20 (AED 1.20) for 10 gms.

Moisturizers

IMG_1779

1) Human + Kind Anti Ageing cream – I have had this for a while now. It’s very hydrating and potent. When using this, I skip serum and eye cream that day since this one can be used in place of those. It’s multi purpose. I am about to finish this bottle. Read my full review here. Price : AED160 for 50 ml.

2) Herbline Essentials Nourishing cream – This is a miracle in jar. What a stunning product!. It helped me get through this really cold weather. It protected my skin against the drying, harsh winter. Definitely check this product out!. This tub lasted me about an year. It’s a recent empty product and so I decided to still show it. Read my full review here. Price : AED 141 for 50 gms.

3) Olay Age Perfect Anti- Ageing Cream – I love Olay like crazy. It’s an amazing brand. However, I hate this product. It’s consistency is nice and it gets absorbed into the skin fast. But it left my skin looking greasy and it has the weirdest smell ever. I bought this from India. It’s a Made in Thailand product. Usually, the Olay products sold here in UAe are made in Poland and they are top quality. But I noticed that the ones sold in India is either made n India or made in Thailand and imported there. Anyways, this cream didn’t do anything magical for me. Price : Rs. 125 (AED 7.45) for 18gms. Yes, it contains only 18 gms!. It’s a tiny tube.

4) Skin Drink from Lush – This is another brand that really helped my skin in the winter. It is so hydrating and becomes a shield against the cold winter nights. Totally recommend it!. Read my full review here. Price : AED 135 for 45 gms.

That’s all guys. I sure hope you got a good idea about some products out there that you might like to try. Take care of your skin and show it lots of love ♥

Review : Happy Hippy from Lush!

Hello!

Today I’m reviewing Happy Hippy, which is a shower gel from Lush. What I love the most about is that it’s main ingredient is grapefruit, one of my favorite fruits!.

BlogPix 016

The gel has a beige, greenish color to it. It captures the smell of grapefruits beautifully, since they have used fresh pink grapefruit juice to make it. It is very refreshing to the senses and especially great when used in the mornings, since you feel energized and wide awake. It doesn’t overly lather up but it’s just right. Once you use it, you can feel that soft smell lingering on your skin for a while. That smell is really clean and fresh. Also, this is a vegan product.

I like the little sticker on the bottle which shows details like when this product was made, by whom and its expiry date.

BlogPix 024

Another great thing about it is that it’s multifunctional!. You can use this shower gel as a hair washing gel too. I own a 100gms bottle, which is enough to last a good while since you need a little each time you use it.

Price: AED 42 for 100 gms.

It comes in 250gms and 500gms bottles too. It costs AED 84 and AED 126 respectively. Try this shower gel if feeling closer to nature is your kind of thing!. You can buy it online from the Lush store by clicking here or visit any of the numerous branches of Lush in UAE or worldwide to get a bottle for yourself!

Review: Skin Drink from Lush!

Hello!

Lush is a brand everyone is familiar with. It’s natural, organic and cruelty free. I have been a fan of it since I tried their fresh face mask Oatifix about 2.5 years ago. That mask contained fresh bananas, fine oatmeal, ground almonds and more. My skin felt amazing using it!.

But today’s review is about Skin Drink, which is a facial moisturizer. What attracted me the most to this product is that it contains fresh Avocados and Aloe vera. These both are immensely beneficial to our skin. My skin type is normal but leaning towards dry. So, I felt this would be a perfect addition to my skincare routine. I have been using this product for a little over 2 months now and am only half way into the tub as you can see below. It lasts a LONG time and a little goes a long way.

LushSkinDrink 003

The product is very creamy, rich yet light and gets easily absorbed into the skin. It leaves your skin feeling satin like and supple. I have got to say, it’s a bit on the oilier side than most facial moisturizers, because of the wide variety of oils incorporated into it. When used alone, it doesn’t show up a lot though. But when I combined it with other products in my skincare routine, I got a slightly oily shine on my face in the end. It definitely isn’t greasy though.

You can use it anytime of the day however I use it in the night. Though it gives me a shiny face at night, in the morning, I wake up to beautifully hydrated and supple face!.

The dominant smell of this product is that of sesame, because of the organic sesame oil in it!. The color is beige. It looks and smells exactly like tahini!. Inorder to tone down the nutty smell, they have added infusion of fresh rose petals, rose absolute and neroli essential oil. Still, some might find the smell too strong. However, I like sesame’s smell and thus overall, I found it to be pleasant. The smell doesn’t linger on for long anyway.

I received a book called ‘Fresh Matters’ along with this product. Oh my god!. I love this book. It lists ALL the products of Lush, it’s ingredients and it’s usage directions.

LushSkinDrink 002

LushSkinDrink 001

I am in awe of the wonderful organic products incorporated into this face moisturizer!. The ingredients are : Organic sesame oil, Avocados, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion, Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera Extract, Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Evening Primrose Oil , Neroli Oil and Rose Absolute (derived from Damask roses)!.

It comes in a black plastic tub, unique to Lush. I always love products that come with a pump, so that it’s totally hygienic. However, in this case, I don’t quite mind that the packaging is so simplistic, since Lush is into recycling and being more eco-friendly, which I really respect. I just make sure my fingers are absolutely clean before dipping into it. The tub contains 45gms and costs AED135. You can purchase this either online at www.lush.ae or in one of their numerous stores here in UAE or worldwide.

If you are on the lookout for a hydrating and protecting facial moisturizer, this is the one to go for. I highly recommend it. Your skin won’t be disappointed!. From reviews I read even before getting this product, I believe this is good for all skin types, though personally I feel it’s best for dry skin. My skin is normal at the moment but dry in winters. I can’t wait to use this in winter and am sure at that time, it wont feel to be on the oilier side.

Have you tried Skin Drink?. What is your favorite Lush product?. Leave me a comment below 🙂
