Best skincare


Hey all! How are you? If you follow me on Facebook or Instagam you might know that I lost my maternal grandfather a few weeks ago. Blogging took a backseat since then as I was totally busy in attending his funeral and other rituals. After spending almost a month at my maternal grandparents’ home, I am finally back. I promise to blog more often from now. Now, let’s talk about this post. A fellow blogger and friend, Shreoshe from Bong Beauty Palette, asked me to collaborate with her in an activity called ‘Twice As Nice’ by Garnier. I readily agreed to her proposal because of two things that flashed in my mind at that time. First, I had never done a collaboration post with anyone before and second, the name Twice As Nice impressed me a lot.

We decided to combine the topics we mostly talk about in our blogs, like, she mostly reviews skincare items and my blog is full of makeup items reviews and tutorials. So, we are going to talk about how makeup and skincare works together to make you beautiful and how they are twice as nice!

Shreoshe will tell you how daily skincare is must to make your skin happy and healthy forever. This is what she has to say-

As the temperature rises high in summer, our skin has to face the harsh sunlight every day. Adding to that our skin feels oily, sweaty and thus attracts a lot of dirt in summer, not to forget the suntan and blemishes that joins in! Here are some handy tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant during summer:
  • Keep yourself hydrated. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day and carry water bottle while you go out. 
  • Use sunscreen before going out in the morning. Apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before you leave the house. 
  • Use natural toner at home like cucumber juice, store it in fridge and use it whenever your skin feels dull or tired. 
  • Cleanse your face twice a day with a good face wash that will remove dirt and oil effectively. 
  • To get rid of tan, mix gram flour with yogurt and apply the paste all over the tanned area. Wash it off after 20 minutes. 
  • Use shower gels and bath salts to get a glowing skin. 
  • Have a good sleep to reduce stress.

Now after the very important skincare regime, you need some more pampering. Let’s allow your makeup products to take that responsibility. I will show you how to do a very easy, fresh and effortless makeup for this summer. Follow the five easy steps to achieve the look that I created-

  • Prepare your base with any BB cream/ tinted moisturizer and concealer you like. Don’t forget to apply a matte and sweat-proof compact on top of that. 
  • To add a natural flush to your cheeks apply some pink/coral blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • Tightline your eyes with a black kohl. If you have very oily lower waterline like I do then skip tightlining your lower waterline. 
  • Curl your lashes and apply a good amount of mascara. 
  • Apply your favourite summery pink lipstick.

~My Take on the Garnier Pure Active Duo~

The Garnier Pure Active duo is basically a face-wash and a scrub, a combo that is #TwiceAsNice. We all know that scrubbing your face at least twice a week is very good for our skin as it removes all the dirt and dead-cells that tend to clog our pores and causes breakouts. The Garnier Pure Active Exfoliating Face Scrub is a creamy scrub filled with apricot seed powder. The scrubbing particles are finely milled so that they don’t feel harsh on your skin. This mild scrub gently scours away all the impurities from your skin without making it dry.

Garnier Pure Active Neem Purifying Face Wash

The Garnier Pure Active Neem Purifying Face Wash is rich in all the benefits of Neem as you can tell. It’s a gel based face wash that lathers well but doesn’t make your skin feel stretchy or dry after the wash. It removes the extra oiliness from your skin which is best for me in this season. It also deep cleanses your skin to remove all the dirt from your pores. I love the smell of both the products. They have very refreshing, fruity and summery fragrance in them. I love how they make my skin feel soft and fresh. I have been using them for a week now and so far I am impressed by their effectiveness. I can share my final opinion about the duo only after using them for a couple of weeks. The duo is worth trying out. Have you guys tried the Garnier Pure Active duo yet?

I hope you like this #TwiceAsNice post. I would love if you check out Shroeshe’s take on this topic. If you loved this post then don’t forget to share with your friends. I will be back with another post this weekend. Till then be safe and keep smiling!

Hello all, how are you all doing? Winter has finally started to pack its bag and we now have the delectable Spring to welcome into our lives. I am a Spring-lover. How about you?

Anyways, let’s start the post. We all know that Korean skincare is one of the best ranges of skincare in this world. Many of us might not be aware of this but, Korea contributes a huge number of skincare products to the world. The ingredients and technologies they use are totally inspired by the usual norms of nature. A lot of people are addicted to Korean cosmetics and so am I. I won’t use the word ‘addiction’ but I am surely fascinated by Korean skincare.

If you are following my blog for a long time, then you would know that I once got lucky enough to win a giveaway by Donah ( where I won a beauty box by Wishtrend called the Wishbox- Cosmic Bloom. I must admit that before that particular event, I was not enlightened about Korean cosmetics and their efficacy. Firstly, because I was literally an amateur in the field of cosmetics and lastly because we don’t have much access to Korean cosmetics in India. It was then when I realized that skincare plays a huge role. I was totally unaware and ignorant of skincare rituals. When I received that Wishbox, I got to try my hands on some excellent Korean skincare products. I would like to introduce two of my favourites with you-

Though I loved the whole box and everything inside it, these two have left a great impact in my heart. I wish to buy the full size of them someday. Now, let’s see my favourites-

Where to Find the Best Korean Cosmetics? 

1. Elisha Coy Always Nuddy CC Cream: This one has become my favourite ever since I started using it. Elisha Coy is a leading Korean Cosmetics brand that has won millions of hearts all over the world. This one is a supremely efficient CC cream which works on to correct your skin and even it out for a clearer skin. I basically use it to correct any blemishes on my skin before applying any sort of foundation or BB cream. I use it after my basic skincare rituals. It does its job as it claims. Clears out any imperfection or discolouration, adds no colour and perfectly blends into the skin leaving it flawless.

2. MAX Clinic Night Flash Massage Oil Foam: I don’t know if I have talked about this earlier, but if not then let me do it now. Before using this product, I had no idea what a oil foam is. If you haven’t used a oil foam before, it’s basically a foaming cleanser with oil. Rich and creamy in texture, this mild cleanser leaves your skin smooth and supple after a wash. It doesn’t only clears the impurities but also works great as a makeup remover. Just one wash and it cleans your makeup like a miracle. It’s great to remove eye makeup as it’s very mild and gentle and one wash it enough to clear off your mascara, eyeliner or even kajal. I have not tried it on water-proof mascara but I hope it’ll work efficiently even on that. Sadly, I failed to find the full size of this product on their website later.

Those who are interested, Wishtrend has a Free Shipping Zone with a bunch of products. I would recommend some Korean brands for you such as Elisha Coy, Skin & Lab, C 20, Klairs etc. 

I hope you enjoyed the post. Leave your opinions and queries in the comments and I promise I would try my best to answer them. Till then stay safe and keep smiling!
