Winter Haul

Skin Care & Winter Haul – Winter Skin Care Products

Hello lovelies,

How many of us know that with changing weather we need to change the skin care products also! Well it is very important to change the daily skin routine with changing weather, because skin also changes with weather & in winter skin gets dryer, flaky & oh-so-dull!! But I am sure nobody wants to look dull no matter what.

So when winter is here I am on shopping spree & hunted some basic skin care products. Let’s have a look at some prods which I bought! & yeah reviews will soon follow after this! So stay tuned.Winter Shopping Haul

  • La Roche Posay Cleanser – I have heard lot of good words about this cleanser. Basically I wanted a light cleanser which not only cleans the face but make it supple too. I hope this will be helpful.La Roche Posay Cleaner
  • La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra (For Normal to Sensitive Skin) – I hate Flaky skin, oh yeah more than hypocrites I hate flaky skin!  Since that my skin is super dry and turning to flake like the plaster of old walls I decided to try out this beauty…
  • La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ – this was on my buying list since quite a some time but I was hesitating as I feared it might make my skin worse. ( I have super sensitive acne prone skin, so I am always uncertain in trying out new products frequently L )
  • Avene Thermal Spring Water – the best toner I have ever triedAvene Thermal Products
  • Avene Cleanance Mask – I bought this for that extra boost which every skin needs in winter.
  • Olay Microsculpting Cream– this is my second buy from Olay. The first time I bought olay cream & it broke me like hell!!! ( I almost started hating the brand. Hats off to my guts for getting the cream from the same brand again. Hopefully this time I will be in happy space 🙂 )Olay Beauty Products
  • Wunder Eye Cream– I have never tried any eye cream before. Heard some very great reviews about this cream.Wunder Eye Cream
  • Cetaphil Lotion– when your skin is extra sensitive you ought to have one of this in your kit.
  • L’Oreal Paris BB Cream– for me BB cream comes in skin care range. That’s why included this in haul 😛 – You might be interested in a related products’ Review : L’oreal Paris True Match BB Cream – G2 Gold Review
  • L’Oreal Paris Infallible (24 Hour Foundation) – Oh My God, Such a Relief, God Bless L’Oreal who invented this long lasting and super hydrating foundation.  I wanted something that took care of the face while out for long time as well, so bought this.L’oreal Paris BB Cream
  • Real Techniques Miracle Sponge– this is out of the range but just wanted to tell you people that this is the very first makeup sponge for me. So Yeyyy!!!
  • Tony&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray – This cute little bottle is my small wonder when it comes to hair and hair care so this one was my choice in my current haul (yes I buy in every haul something for my locks).  My locks are plain like a Plane. Hahahah (Please pardon my humour this time  😛 My Husband was sitting next to me – So that’s why my Locks are plain like a Plane – Plane and Plateau please google in case of confusion)  – and thus I am hopeful that this spray will add some volume to my locks.Tony&Guy Casual

So this was my small haul for this winter season.. Until Next Time (A Holiday Coming Up – #EXCITED)

How to look Good while Travelling

Best Indian Beauty Blog

Everybody loves to travel even for a short trip of 2 days. But while travelling can be stressful if you are travelling in harsh summers or winters. And no matter what, it takes a certain toll on the skin. Trying to look good is on everybody’s wish list. As we have seen our celebs who are effortlessly stylish while on airport (and I am like… how they can manage to look so cool all the time.. Ugh!)

Well, let’s have a look what can be done while on the go.

Drink plenty of fluids

No matter whether you are visiting loo quite a frequent times but keeping yourself hydrated should be the top most priority for every individual. It will keep your skin hydrated against the cabin pressure!

Wear Minimal Makeup

Never wear full face of makeup while flying. Because there are always certain limitations from airlines about the things which you can carry! Which means you might not necessarily take your gentle cleanser or toner with you. Hence keep the makeup minimal.

Carry Blotting Tissues

Always carry blotting tissues to take off that excess oil or even dirt.

Face Mist for Refreshing feeling

Always have a bottle of face mist to take off that tired feeling & get refreshed within minutes. Face mist or thermal waters not only hydrates but also acts as a makeup remover & toner!

Never forget a Sunblock

Never ever forget an SPF. It is the utmost important to carry your sunblock whether you are travelling to beach or to any other destination. Neglecting sunscreen can lead to ageing, pigmented skin which I am sure nobody wants. Hence apply your SPF religiously!  See Lotus Herbals UV Screen Matte Gel Review

Don’t forget your hands

 I don’t think I need to tell this but a sanitizer is a must while travelling. Also carry your favorite hand cream to keep them hydrated. As our hands are also exposed to harsh conditions & when we wash our hands it gets dehydrated hence it is important to put on the cream.

Lip Balm

This is one staple product which can be found in every girl’s bag. But don’t forget to use it. Use religiously!  See Lakme Lip Love Lip Balm Strawberry Review in India

LensKart Review

Hello Lovely People,

I am back with something new that I tried recently, I very recently developed a roving eye for Lenses and wanted to buy some awesome lenses for daily wear (Color with No Power).  I have purchased a lot of shades / spectacles / frames / glasses online but never Lenses, So I thought of giving LensKart a Try for the Lenses (I have already purchased couple of frames from them – Loved it Then) and Loved them again :-D.

LensKart Review

Lenskart has Shades / Frames / Specs / Lenses and Physical Stores – Rare E-Comm site to have such a wide range of products from the same niche.  One look at the site and it compels you to explore what suits what doesn’t.  You’ll be spoiled for choices for sure. Review – Brief Overview

Lenskart brings to you [Yes they do :-D] wide selection of eyewear from brands like Ray-Ban, Oakley, Vincent Chase, John Jacobs and what not.    Apart from the Eyewear range, they sport a Gender based sorting on this as well, Ranging from Men, Women and Kids too (Icing on the Cake) then comes the range of Power Glasses and such and most importantly the widest brand variety of Lenses that I have seen so far.  You have BnL, JnJ, Freshlook, Ciba and many more.

I was hesitant the first time that I bought from them, a little skeptical about the low price vs quality of the product.  Because wearing a non branded fake product on your eyes can damage your eyes much more than it will damage your reputation.  Plus I had no clue as to if the sunglasses that I would buy suit the shape of my face and that the nose piece fits onto the Nose Line well.

Lenskart had already thought of this it seems. They have a no questions asked return policy with money back if the glasses don’t suit / fit your need.  Convenience and No Hassles at a DISCOUNTED Price – What else does a girl want <3

The price range for wearables are anywhere 20-40% discounted on the market (store) prices.  What I loved about the Lens category is that they have about 85 styles and all of that it displayed precisely with the features of color, expiration, usage and price of the product. The filters on the top row of any selection across the category is really helpful and is actually pretty smart.  You can play around with the filters of brand, color, power, expiration and reviews of the Lenses.

When you actually select a particular product, the page covers every single aspect of this product that you actually end up asking the shopkeeper when you physically roam around looking for stuff.  The explanatory videos are really useful in case you are a newbie buying stuff from them, the reviews mentioned there more or less cover each and every aspect of what they loved about the product and what they did not, thus rather than relying on the thug shopkeeper’s suggestions it’s better to go with fellow user feedbacks only.

The compare features is a boon for window-shoppers wherein they can add products of their choice from a similar category and can compare the pro-con of each product and finally boil down on the piece that would adore their eyes.

Finally after minutes (yes and not hours 😀 ) I completed my drill and ended up buying from Widest Brand Variety of Lenses the Bausch & Lomb Lacelle Colors at a heavy discount of appx 35% and whoa what a delivery, card backed – bubble wrapped and right on time (slightly before).   Immediately opened and tried on – What a Lovely Feel! Review

Lenskart so far I have found, is one of the best variety online portal for eyewear.  It has everything you need from party wear to daily wear, simple to complex powers and so on.

Kudos to the team and I would suggest everyone craving for a new spec / shade or lens do Try LensKart.  It’s worth the time (saved) and money spent.
