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: Wow by Wojooh Master Blender!

Hiya!

I am thrilled to review Wow by Wojooh’s Master Blender. It’s my first time ever trying a beauty sponge. This one is pink in color and came in a little plastic pack which said Master Blender on it.

Blender1

It was slightly dense, the first time I took it out from the pack. It didn’t have much give when I squeezed it. Here, you can see how big it was originally.

Blender2

To use it, I soaked it in water for a minute or so. It grew in size and became soft!. I squeezed out excess water from it and it was ready to use. I took a bit of foundation on the back of my hand, dipped the sponge in it and then applied it to my face in a circular motion, bouncing it slightly off the skin’s surface. Since the damp sponge is saturated with water, it doesn’t absorb the foundation, thus avoiding any wastage. Also the dampness overall gives a desirable dewy look to your face at the end of the application. The tip of the sponge is perfect to apply foundation/concealer in the inner corner of your eyes.

What I noticed is that, after acquiring this sponge, I haven’t reached for my foundation brush!. I freaking love this blender sponge so much!. It gives a streak free and flawless look. The end result is a ‘my-skin-but-better’ look ♥. You can use the Master Blender to apply eye shadow or to contour too. However, I haven’t tried that out yet.

I clean the sponge after every use, so as to keep it hygienic. It’s a sponge after all. It can harbor bacteria if you don’t cleaan it well. Using unclean products on your face can result in breakouts. Here is how I clean my Master Blender:

Blender03

Here is what I started off with, before cleaning. Pretty dirty!. FYI : The foundation that I use is Make Up For Ever’s Liquid Lift Foundation. At first, I applied a makeup remover (Garnier’s Makeup Remover Milk) on it. I dampened it with warm water. Then I slowly worked the makeup remover into the sponge, rubbing it. On squeezing, most of the makeup was removed. Then I used a cleanser (Neutrogena’s Deep Clean cleanser) to repeat the ‘rubbing and squeezing under water’ process. Finally, all makeup was removed from the sponge.

Blender4

I then wrapped the sponge in a paper towel and squeezed it, so that excess water came off efficiently. I did that twice, taking a new paper towel the second time. Then I left it standing on a flat surface overnight to dry. After cleaning this way, there were no traces of makeup left at all and the sponge was as good as new once again, as you can see below. Also, compare this picture with picture number two in this post to see the size difference, once it’s damp.

Blender5

It didn’t shrink back to the original size after drying. It’s a soft sponge now. However, each time you use it, you need to wet it, so that the application of the foundation is flawless every single time!.

Price : AED 40

It’s easy to use and I highly recommend you check out this multi-purpose sponge. It is available exclusively at Wojooh stores (formerly known as Faces).

Review: Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser!

Hello!

Today am reviewing a daily facial cleanser from one of my favorite brands, Neutrogena. It’s the Deep Clean Facial Cleanser, which is formulated for Normal and Dry skin. My skin type is normal at the moment but leans towards dry in winters.

I was so excited to give this cleanser a try. It would be an understatement to say I fell in love with it!. I have been using this for three months now.

20140414_152109

It claims that it gently penetrates into the pores, dissolves dirt, oil and traces of make-up. I feel it really lives up to it’s claims. It’s very gentle and perfect for daily use. It lathers just the right amount, not overly too much. Without feeling heavy on the skin, it really deep cleans and removes impurities and dead surface skin cells, leaving your skin looking very youthful and fresh.

It’s a lovely light orange colored, thick cleanser. It comes in a plastic bottle with a nice pump, which I love!. It’s very convenient to use and hygienic too. Since it’s a transparent bottle, you can keep track of how much product is left. It’s scent is really refreshing and relaxing. When using it, you really enjoy that feeling of cleanliness it delivers while that scent captivates your senses!.

This product is oil free, non comedogenic and dermatologist tested. One bottle will last you a long time since you need only a single pump of product each time.

The cost of this cleanser is AED 36.50 for 200ml. I highly recommend this. Infact a friend of mine (Irene of Drab to Fabz) bought this product after I suggested it to her. Not only did she absolutely love it, she said she should have started using it a long before itself. It’s that great!

Have you tried this cleanser?. What are your thoughts on it?. Leave a comment below 🙂
