Himalaya Refreshing Cleansing Milk

Beauty and Beautiful

Applying makeup and then removing makeup. We girls can really spend so much of time and energy to enhance our beauty. With makeup with try to hide our imperfections and successfully removing makeup makes sure we are not harming ourselves and maintaining our natural beauty. Thus removing makeup should be an integral part of our daily routine. But is it only removing makeup? No its removing impurities, oil, dirt, grime and dead cells that accumulate throughout the day so that our skin can be breathe easily and rest during sleep and we wake up to a more beautiful person.
In terms of cleansing milk I haven’t tried much however this is the first time I tried Himalaya’s Refreshing Cleansing milk.
My skin type: Normal.

My experience: Himalaya’s Refreshing Cleansing milk comes in a white opaque sturdy bottle and the product milky white with thickened texture and mild fragrance. You just require a coin size amount for your face and neck. It takes some time in getting absorbed so you need to massage it a bit. After that you can simply cleaning it with a damp cotton wool and your face is all clean. It removes all dirt and oil in just one swipe. After cleaning you feel fresh and moisturized and there is a subtle glow. At times I even miss my moisturizer and still it doesn’t feel stretchy. As I prefer water soluble makeup so I am unable to comment about its performance on waterproof makeup. Generally I use olive oil and Johnson’s baby oil for my eye region but certain times I have used this and the results were equally effective.

Pros:
1. Effective in removing makeup, oil and dirt.
2. Imparts an subtle glow after cleansing
3. Feels refreshing
4. Doesn’t dry out skin
5. Affordable
6. Not Tested on Animals
Cons:
1. Contains parabens
2. Takes time in getting absorbed.
Overall rating: 4. I think one should definitely give it a try.

Oriflame Very Me Happy Glow Lip Gloss

Oriflame

Dear friends

Recently my love for Lip Gloss made me buy this little sweet heart from Oriflame called as “Happy Glow” from the Very Me rage categorized as “Moods Lip Gloss”.
Color: Pomegranate
Shade: Deep Hot Pink
Price: 249/- INR

The Lip Gloss has very fine shimmer in self color and gold. These are like light reflecting particles which adds to the shine. But once applied they are not visible. The Gloss is not very heavy on the Lips and neither too sticky. It stays on for 1-2 hrs after which the color starts fading leaving back a sweet deep pinkish tint and moisturized lips with a subtle glow. You need not apply any lip balm and the lips remain moisturized until you eat or drink.

The Lip gloss gives a very sheer coverage which may be a con for girls with pigmented lips. As for me I apply lipstick to cover the pigmentation marks as my lips are highly pigmented and then apply the gloss.

Pros:
1. Decent color payoff considering that it’s just a gloss.
2. Very good moisturizing effect
3. Not very sticky
Cons:
1. Won’t hide pigmentation.
2. You need a Oriflame consultant for getting their products

Overall: 3.5/5
There is nothing exceptional in this Gloss and nothing too bad either. It’s just a decent product.

Biotique Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm

Beauty and Beautiful, Biotique

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share my experience with Biotique Morning Nectar Lightening Lip Balm. I have a very bad habit that I hardly stick to a single product for long. I feel that the market is flooded with so many good products and I should try them at least once. So after my Lotus lip balm got over my quest for a good lip balm began. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Biotique where most of the products haven’t worked for me but still I don’t know why I keep on trying and testing them. Anyways…

When I saw this little pot on the rack I thought I would pass, but SPF 30 UVA/UVB sunscreen caught my fancy and I picked it.

Company Claims: This anti-ageing lip balm moisturizes and revitalize lips. Fights collagen loss and fills-in creases to smooth out dry lines fo noticeably smoother, younger looking lips.

Price: 99/- INR for 16 gms

My Experience: I really loved the SPF 30 factor and the claim which says “lightens and protects”. I am sick of my pigmented lips. It really feels embarrassing at times. The color of the balm is of light milky cream colour, with a distinctive smell. But I somehow liked it. However under AC I observed that the balms condenses on the lips and leaves a white cast. And this is one primary reason that this balm should not be applied under a lipstick. I found all my lipsticks giving me a cakey look after application. So first I apply this and after 5 mins remove it with soft cotton ball and then re-apply.
The moisturization affect hardly stays for 1-2hrs and beyond which you have to re-apply else there is a stretchy feeling. But there is one thing that made me fall in love with it and that is it helped me lighten my pigmentation marks by 10%. I apply a thick layer before going to bed and the next morning my lips are soft and with reduced marks.

Pros:
As claimed lightens the pigmentation marks
Moiturizes the lips
Has SPF 30 and UVA/UVB sunscreen
Affordable and easily available

Cons:
Quite heavy in texture.
Constant re-application is required.
Under AC condenses and leaves a white cast.
If applied under lipsticks, it leaves a cakey look.

Rating: 3 (With all the cons it still give a rating of “3” because it had actually helped reducing those ugly dark spots on my lips)

Recommendation: If you have pigmented lips you can at least try during the nights to see the difference.
