Being a beauty blogger, I am always in search of new products to try out. For me, skincare has always been way more essential than makeup. I might now pick up the hottest lipstick or highlighter, but I’m always eager to explore new skincare launches. So, when I saw Nykaa came up with its own Korean sheet masks- Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask with some desi ingredients, I cannot hold my excitement. There was a two-for-two offer going on pre-ordering the sheets, so I got four of them. I am going to review the Gooseberry + Papaya for Nourished + Brightened Skin sheet mask today.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always looking for new skincare and makeup products to try and review on my blog for my readers. Recently, it has been 80% skincare and 20% makeup which I am really enjoying because as they say, the more flawless the canvas the prettier the painting (Ahem, I just invented it). Anyway, recently I saw some very interesting stuff launched by Nykaa. They launched their very own Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Masks. The sheet masks weren’t the interesting part but their desi ingredients were. I love how they have merged India and Korea in such a fancy way. All the ingredients used in these sheet masks are 100% originated from India and made to target specific skin concerns. Today, I am reviewing two of their 11 variants- Gooseberry+Papaya and Pear+Hyaluronic Acid

Price– ₹ 100 (Buy here)

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask range is powered with two hero ingredients in each mask. They have launched a collection of total 11 sheet masks focusing on Indian skin and their problems.

Product Description

Carefully chosen, we bring you 11 variants that are specially made to target all your skin concerns. Tucked away in our grandma’s diaries, these ingredients are humble yet potent. Passed on from generations to generations, they have never ceased to mark their vitality even in the modern world. Now, we have brought to you the most-precious beauty secrets in the form of our Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet masks.

Why Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet mask?

  • Dual ingredients for dual benefits.
  • Exquisite Indian origin ingredients for maximum benefits.
  • Each variant caters directly to all targeted skin concerns.
  • Benefit-driven to ease the consumer purchase.

How to Use-

Unfold and lay over on clean and toned skin. Relax for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask and gently pat the excess serum onto your skin, until fully absorbed. Massage for good blood circulation that results in a healthy glow.

My Experience with Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Range-

Now, let me tell you what I honestly feel about this particular range of sheet masks.

Packaging- The packaging is very nicely and meticulously done. An image of the key ingredients of the corresponding masks is printed on the packaging itself. Also, the name of the ingredients and the effects of the mask is also written boldly on the pack. So, the user is completely aware of what they are putting on their face and there is no room for confusions.

Fitting- The fitting of these sheets masks is what makes it my favourite. The holes are made keeping Indian face shapes in mind. A difficulty that I face with most of the Korean sheet masks is that the holes for the eyes are not wide enough to fit me. But Nykaa’s sheet masks have bigger eye holes so that they fit people with bigger eyes.

Consistency of the Serum/Essence- I have never used a sheet mask before that doesn’t come with a thick, hard-to-absorb serum/essence. My experience with Nykaa Sheet Masks was outstanding because the Nykaa face sheet masks are soaked in a serum that is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. The essence does not make my skin oily, it just adds the right amount of moisture.

The 11 variants of the Nykaa Face Sheet Masks are-

  1. Gooseberry + Papaya (for Nourished + Brightened skin)
  2. Almond + Yogurt (for Revitalized + Nourished skin)
  3. Tea Tree + Aloe Vera (for Clear + Moisturized skin)
  4. Black Mud + Aloe Vera (for Purified + Hydrated skin)
  5. Rice + Camelia (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  6. Rose + Goat Milk (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  7. Lemon + Honey (for Lightened + Glowing skin)
  8. Avocado + Moringa (for Nourished + Hydrated skin)
  9. Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid (for Firm + Brightened skin)
  10. Charcoal + Bamboo (for Purified + Nourished skin)
  11. Turmeric + Coconut (for Revitalized + Radiant skin)

I bought 4 from the list- #1, #7, #9 and #11. I will review #1 Gooseberry + Papaya Face Sheet Mask and #9 Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask today.

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Review- Gooseberry+Papaya

Unmask for a Nourished and Brightened Skin.

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Gooseberry + Papaya Review | Cherry On Top

Benefits of Gooseberry- Gooseberry, popularly known as Amla in India, removes tan and lightens blemishes and acne scars.
Benefits of Papaya- Provides three-layer deep skin nourishment and a long-lasting glow.

Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract (1,000 ppm), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract (100 ppm), Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Efficacy-

From my childhood, I have been told numerous benefits of natural ingredients by my mother. She is all about DIYs. I remember she used to make a papaya mask for face and an amla concoction for the hair. I have seen papaya doing wonders for my face. It adds a healthy, natural glow to your face instantly.

I think this particular mask is very average when it comes to the results. I have not seen any visible or drastic change in my skin except for it made it really nourished and clean in a way. I have not seen any of my spots getting faded or skin clarity. Maybe with regular use, it can work on that front.

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Review- Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid-

Unmask for a Firm and Brightened skin.

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid Review | Cherry On Top

Benefits of Pearl- Reduces melanin production to give fairer radiant skin.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid- Holds in hydration to increase the elasticity giving a firmer and younger-looking skin.

Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Hyaluronate (25ppm), Ethylhexyglycerin, Xanthan Gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Pearl Extract (50 ppm), Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Efficacy-

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid does what it claims. I could feel my skin a bit firmer after the use. It might not make you fairer (because you know that’s not possible!) but definitely would brighten up your face a lot. The serum penetrates into the skin very quickly giving it the proper amount of hydration. This mask is a great option to get an instant pick-me-up before any party or occasion.


Overall, I loved both the masks for the instant glow that they provide. These masks are nothing extraordinary so don’t expect them to completely change your skincare game. These are only for ₹100 thus you can definitely give these a shot. There is a ‘buy 5 get 3 free‘ offer going on on these right now. So, it could be a great opportunity to stock them up or give them a try.

Skincare and haircare start way early in our lives even before we realise its benefits. Since our childhood, we have seen our moms and grandmoms oiling our hair, sometimes with added herbs and seeds, on a day to day basis. When I was younger, my mom made sure she oils my hair at least three times a week and I absolutely hated the idea. I used to hate greasy hair. But, eventually, it turned out to be so beneficial for my hair. Everyone around me, or on the internet, compliments my hair and asks me the secret. It has always been half my mother’s care and affection towards my hair and half the blessings of nature. Sometimes my mom and grandmom used to soak methi seeds or kalonji seeds to the hair oil overnight to make the oil even more efficacious. Recently, Nihar Naturals, one of India’s leading wellness brand has come up with a new hair oil called Nihar Extra Care which follows the century-old traditional theory of soaking different seeds in the hair-oil. I couldn’t be happier!

Last month, the entire Nihar Naturals team along with their Brand Ambassador, Vidya Balan, came down to Kolkata to launch their new product i.e. Nihar Extra Care hair oil in front of some of the city bloggers. I was one of them and I got to know about the brand and the new launch minutely.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is actually a coconut oil that dispenses through a mix of five different types of seeds when you try to take it out. In the next picture, you’ll get a clear idea. The seeds they have used are Methi, Sarson, Kalonji, Lauki and Til. Together with the coconut oil, they claim to nourish your hair, strengthen it and arrest hair fall. The base oil is coconut oil which alone has multiple hair care properties.

Benefits of the seeds-

The oil is packed with five types of seeds and every seed has a unique property. Let’s know more-

Methi- Strengthens hair and reduces hair fall.

Sarson- Helps hair growth and conditions hair.

Kalonji- Nourishes hair follicle and reduces hair fall.

Lauki- Reduces hair fall.

Til- Promotes hair growth.

How the Nihar Extra Care hair oil works-

1. Tilt & squeeze to bring the oil to the cap.

2. Soak to let the oil mix with the seeds.

3. Pour & use as desired. Apply from root to tip of your hair.

Basically, Nihar Extra Care hair oil gives you the same benefits as hair oil soaked with different seeds just like the traditional recipe but in a more hassle-free way. You don’t need to think about doing all of it together. Nihar has taken care of everything so they have done the packaging in a way that it can be used by today’s women who have no time to pamper themselves.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is priced at ₹119 for 200ml.

Hi, guys! I am back with a new review after so long. I was kind of busy with getting my life back on track. If you read My Anxiety Story then you’ll know why I was away from the blog for quite some time. Now that I’ve started enjoyed every bit of my work once again, I am here with a review of the Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir that I’ve been enjoying using for quite some time now.

Tjori is a brand that has come to prominence in the recent past. I have literally been bombarded with recommendations on Facebook lately and it has successfully intrigued me to some extent. Recently, in my May Fab Bag (watch the unboxing video), I received this tiny bottle of the Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir that I first mistook it for a sample size product but soon realized it is a full size. Since then, I have been religiously using this product every night and I can see a visible difference that I’ll be sharing with you in this post.

Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir | Cherry On Top Blog

Price- Rs 999/- for 10ml ( Buy from Tjori, Nykaa, Kraftly)

Description- (As mentioned in their website) This powerful formula works at night when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors. It promises to restore and replenish for smoother, healthier-looking skin, all while you sleep.

Ingredients- Organic Olive Oil, Organic Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Fruit Oil, Organic Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Leaf Oil, Organic Bitter Orange Essential Oil, Organic Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Oil, Organic Coffee Arabica Oil, Organic Oxycoccus (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Organic Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Organic Wheat Germ Extracts, Organic Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Oil, Almond Oil

Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir | Cherry On Top Blog

Packaging- The Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir comes in a small plastic bottle with a plastic screw cap. That’s how I received it from Fab Bag but when I visit the official website, I can see the cap is golden and seems to be metallic which is same in Nykaa and Kraftly. The bottle, being transparent, allows you to keep a check on the usage. The only thing that turns me off is the absence of a dropper or decent dispenser. I have always used night serums/treatments that come with a dropper and that is very convenient. Without a dropper, measuring and dispensing of the product becomes a tough and messy job.

Directions to use- Massage 1-2 drops onto face after cleansing. Can be used alone, or added to your favourite moisturizer or treatment. Use day or night.

Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir | Cherry On Top Blog

Texture- Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir is basically a light-weight facial oil that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving any sticky residue. Being an oil, it definitely feels a little greasy which doesn’t bother at night. I prefer to skip it when it’s too humid outside. I would suggest oily skin people use it in the night only and dry skin people use it for day or night. It adds a bit shine to your face.

Effects of the Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir on My Skin-

Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir | Cherry On Top Blog

The reason we choose and concentrate on facial serums is that it penetrates deep into the skin, gets absorbed quicker than any other products and starts working sooner than any other product.

I have been continuously using this elixir on my face ever since I received it and I have seen a noticeable difference on my skin. As I have oily skin, I like to use it at night before bed. With this product, my night time skincare has become in the following order- cleanser, scrub, toner and then the Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir. I have replaced my regular moisturizer with this treatment. It might feel oily at first but it soon seeps into the skin and gets absorbed leaving the skin replenished and plumped. It’s the best effect you will see the morning after. The next morning my skin looks bright and rejuvenated without any trace of oil.

All the products from Tjori are-

  • Paraben-free
  • SLS-free
  • Phthalate-free
  • Cruelty-free
  • Vegan

Reasons to love Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir-

  • Very light-weight in texture.
  • Apt for both summers and winters.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Makes the skin brighter, smoother and softer.
  • Rejuvenates the skin.
  • Improves skin texture.
  • Removes dullness from fresh.
  • Value for money.

Reasons to dislike Tjori Night Skin Repair Elixir-

  • It has a strong smell.

Come summers and we all get the tan that not only makes our skin look few shades darker but also causes side effects like uneven skin tone, acne, dark spots, dry skin and signs of premature aging. The idea is to not only keep your skin protected from the harmful sun rays but also going the extra mile by pampering your skin with home remedies that will not only help you get rid of the problems mentioned before but also give you glowing skin and bright complexion.

Wondering how to remove tan the easy way? Here are few beauty tips you can follow and easily try at home using everyday ingredients from your kitchen.

1) Aloe Vera & Lemon Juice Mask

Both aloe vera and lemon juice work wonders when it comes to reducing the effects of tanning on the skin. Aloe is a soothing agent that helps in fighting melanin that darkens the skin cells. Lemon juice, on the other hand, works like an astringent, cleaning the skin from inside thus giving a radiant look on the outside.

  • Wash it off with cold water.
  • Repeat at least thrice a week for desired results.

 2) Lemon & Honey

Wondering how to get brighter skin in summers? Start using lemon and honey. They help rejuvenate the skin, giving it a fresh and blemish-free look. Lemon helps to lighten the skin and honey moisturizes and hydrates it, keeping it soft and moist.

Potato is one of the most effective natural ingredients that help in de-tanning of the skin. Mix it with lemon and sugar and an amazing home remedy is ready that will help get rid of dead cells, give your skin an even tone and reveal fresh and smooth skin.

Ingredients:

  • One medium potato
  • One tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • One teaspoon granulated sugar

For the on-the-go women of today, trying remedies to gremove tan can become slightly more difficult.

Enriched with the goodness of orange peel extracts, it reduces the effects of sun-tan by giving you radiant and brighter looking skin within minutes.  An effective and safe solution to your tan problems, it’s all you need to step out in the sun confidently.

Hi, guys! Sorry for being MIA. I was actually trying to focus on my YouTube channel for the past few weeks and that’s the reason why blogging had taken a backseat. But, I am trying really hard to cope up with everything and multitask. So, if you haven’t checked out my YouTube videos then please do me a favour and watch them. I would really appreciate it. Love you!

Today, I am going to review a facial kit that I have been using since February and I loved it. Today’s product of focus is Cosmicare Gold Facial Kit.

Due to our busy schedule and fast lifestyle, we tend to miss out on several things especially self-pampering. Our skin needs some sort of maintenance that helps it keep healthy and glowing. That’s why you need to go for a facial in at least every 15 days but, that never happens because we cannot take out time and secondly the facials hat your salon offers are quite expensive. This is the reason why I like to buy my facial kits and do at-home facials. It’s convenient, cheap and gives the same result as a salon treatment will give. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you are doing the massage strokes right. There are several videos on YouTube that show you what are the right facial strokes. Now, let’s jump into the review part.

My Experience with Cosmicare Gold Facial Kit

As I said earlier,  I have been using this facial kit for a long time now and seen how well my skin responds to it. First, I want to talk about the quantity of each product. I have used this kit thrice and there is still some product left in each tube. So, the quantity is right for the price you pay. It adds a natural glow to my face without making it oily. It’s like a healthy glow that appears from within. It did not irritate my skin and did not cause acne. I have a combination skin that becomes sensitive seasonally. Overall, I found it great for any occasions like a wedding or any party. I would suggest you use this facial kit two days prior to the event.

Makeup is an integral part of my life. It’s not that I do makeup on a daily basis but most of the time when I am heading out, I like to do some makeup no matter how basic it is. If not a full face makeup, I cannot skip my kajal and lipstick and some compact if necessary. As much as I love doing makeup, I love taking it off at the end of the day. Let me confess something, I am a big makeup remover hoarder. I always have two spare bottles of makeup remover at my home! Recently, I have been loving the Brillare Micellar Water Mist to remove my everyday makeup. Keep reading this post for a brief review and a demo.

Price- Rs 500 for 100ml

ATP infused papaya and algae extracts maintain the healthy glow & energy level while boosting natural moisturisation factor of skin.

The biphasic cleansing system of micellar water clears away makeup and other skin impurities with deeper pore purification.

My Experience with Brillare Micellar Water Mist

Brillare scince Micellar Water Mist Review, Demo, Price

As I mentioned earlier, I am very particular about my makeup removal routine. No matter how tired I am, I never ever go to bed with makeup on. I always go for a makeup remover that is very mild and gentle on the skin and that doesn’t cause tugging and pulling of the skin because that might result in premature ageing and appearing of fine lines.

I have been using this Brillare Micellar Water Mist since December and I just love it. I used to use a bi-phase makeup remover (that contains water and oil) and it worked great for my makeup, especially heavy-duty waterproof eye makeup, but since I got my hands on this Micellar Water Mist, I haven’t looked back. One thing I really appreciate about the packaging is that they have made it a spray bottle, unlike any other brands. The spray nozzle assures you don’t use excess product or waste product.

How I like to use it is, spray twice (for light to medium makeup, thrice for heavy and waterproof makeup) on a cotton pad and press and swipe it along my face. For my eyes and lips, I like to press that cotton pad there for 10-15 seconds and then wipe it out. That process is followed by a gentle face wash. You can also use it when you are not wearing makeup. Let me tell you how. You can make it the first step of your skincare. Just take one spray on a cotton pad and swipe it across your face just to get rid of any traces of dirt and sweat off your face. It has glycerine so it will add some kind of hydration to your face and also take care of your skin.

It is also free from paraben, formaldehyde, artificial fragrance and colour.

Step-by-Step Demo-

Step 1:  Spray some product on a cotton pad.

Step 2: Swipe it across wherever you need.

Step 3: Swipe away any other remainings with the other side of the cotton pad.

Overall, I really liked this product and will certainly repurchase. It could be a perfect substitute for the Bioderma Micellar Water but in a much lesser price tag.

 

Which is your favourite micellar water?

My Experience with Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap review, price

My body feels very, very dry during winters so, I need to choose my bath products really wisely. Recently, I got to try the African Cocoa Butter Soap from the brand called Imiana House. I have been loving this soap lately. Here are the reasons for that-

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap is free of chemicals, artificial fragrance and synthetic colours. It is made of 100% natural and pure essential oils which is a big YAY for me! It’s introduced as a luxurious handmade soap in their website and the packaging does justice to it. The black paper packaging with a red seal gives it a very luxurious look with minimalism.

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap is a dark brown coloured product with white marble effects on it. When I first sniffed it, it smelt like spices. I expected the aroma to be of chocolates but it wasn’t. The fragrance is very mild as they do not use any artificial scents. This soap is not something that will fill your bathroom with some exquisite aroma.

The soap lathers up really well. It cleanses your skin deeply yet it doesn’t dry it out. It is suitable for any skin type. The soap lasts for a good amount of time. You can even cut the soap in half, use one half and stock the other. The size of the soap is pretty big.

The only downside, I think, is the price of the product. I understand that they are made of exotic, pure and natural ingredients but it is quite a big amount.

These soaps come in a variety. Check out their website for more.

Have you ever tried this soap?

Acne is a skin condition that affects more than half of the world population and leads to insecurities and lower self-esteem issues. Most of the times, you do not even understand what the problem is, which makes this skin condition even worse. Therefore, we have the top reasons as to why you might be getting acne breakouts.

1.   Consuming Too Much Spicy Food

Spicy foods are made with peppers and tomatoes, which have acidic lycopene in them that cause irritations and imbalance the pH levels of the skin leading to breakouts. However, not just spicy food can lead to breakouts. Some people can get breakouts because of bread, dairy, and other types of skin. Keep in mind that every person reacts to certain foods differently, therefore, you should never compare would situation with anyone. Focus on eating fresh fruits and vegetables as much as you can as they contain water and beneficial nutrients that are important to you.

2.   Check the Products You Are Using

There are many lotions that contain mineral oil because it is a “super-heavy moisturizing agent,” but what you do not know is that it can clog pores that lead to breakouts. Another ingredient that you need to avoid putting on your skin are silicone based products. Similar to mineral oils, silicones can cause breakouts as well. If you want to maintain clear skin, you will need to look for products that clearly say “non-comedogenic” as these products will not clog and they will prevent breakouts. If you have Proactive acne, read more.

3.   Stop Smoking

Every time you smoke a cigarette, you are lowering the amount of oxygen that is supposed to go on your face. Not only are you exposing yourself to cancer, but you are also lessening the collagen and elastin present in your skin. Collagen and elastin have the ability to prevent large pores and wrinkles, therefore, the carcinogens in a cigarette eliminate these two vital skin properties. The more you smoke, the more breakouts will occur. Try to avoid smoking as much as you can so you can live a healthier life and have clear skin.

4.   You Might Be Over-Scrubbing

People that have acne-prone skin think that scrubbing their face with rough exfoliants (crushed apricot seeds), hard washcloths, or cleaning brushes, assume that their skin will become flawless. However, it has the opposite effect on it. When they do this the bacteria from the acne spread all over the skin, making the condition even worse. You need to find the right facial cleanser for your skin so you can prevent acne from happening again. Make sure you are aware of your skin type as every facial cleanser has a different job.

5.   Picking Pimples Triggers More to Grow

As tempting as it may be, do not pick on your pimples. Picking on your pimples will most likely leave a red mark that will turn into an acne scar. The worst part about “playing dermatologist” is that when you are trying to squeeze the puss out of the pore, there is a chance that you are making it go deeper into your skin. When the bacterium spreads underneath the skin layer, there is a chance that you will get more pimples. The best way to prevent yourself from touching your pimples is by challenging yourself. If you keep your hands off your face you will not only see a reduction in your pimples, but you will see how your complexion is getting better.

6.   Release All Stress

It is true that stress causes acne. The more you stress out, the more pimples you will have and ultimately you will be stuck in a vicious cycle. When you are stressing, your skin will begin to create stress hormones that include cortisol. Cortisol will stimulate the production of oil glands so they can make testosterone. This will make your skin excessively oily and clog your pores. In order to prevent this from happening, you must make sure you are meditating, working out daily, and taking time out for yourself. All this will allow you to release stress so your body does not keep generating these harmful hormones.

My Experience with Speaking Tree Argan Carrier Oil-

Speaking Tree Argan Carrier Oil Review, Price

My experience with Speaking Tree Argan Carrier Oil is my first experience with Argan Oil itself. Before that, I never used any argan oil. I had heard a lot about the benefits and magical properties of Argan oil before so, I was really excited to try it myself.

As I am currently using Speaking Tree Lemon Essential Oil for my face, I do not use the Argan oil for my skin. I use it for my hair. For the last few weeks, I have been using it as a leave-in conditioner. I just take a couple of drops of the Argan oil and apply to the ends of my hair after washing it with my favourite shampoo.

As Argan oil is non-greasy, it nourishes my tresses without making them oily.

If you are looking for a budget-friendly argan oil then I would highly recommend you to try Speaking Tree Argan carrier oil.
