You guys all know my undying love for scrubs. I also categorize them according to my preferences. Some I like on a daily basis, some on the days I pamper my skin and some for special occasions. Today, I am going to talk about the Vasu Sugar Scrub– a new face scrub that I recently came across. This scrub belongs to the last category I mentioned earlier. This particular product is a new addition to my skincare stash, however, the brand is not. I have previously used their Kumkumadi Thailam facial beauty oil. Will talk about it some other day. Today’s product in focus is the sugar scrub and I am already excited to know your views on this.

I know many of you have used sugar scrubs before but I want to know how many of you used them for your facial skin. I am wondering because I have always been sceptical about using any sugar-based exfoliants on my face as I always feared they might be too rough for the skin. I remember one such incident where I used a homemade sugar scrub on my face and I got dry patches on certain parts of the skin.  I have used them for my body many a time though. Had I not used the Vasu  Sugar Scrub, I might never overcome this fear. This is probably the mildest sugar scrub you’ll find in India, or maybe the only one. Believe me, I am not exaggerating.

Price-

Originally ₹750 but now at 50% off ₹375 (for 50g). Available on-
Amazonhttps://amzn.to/3d387Fv
VasuStore: https://www.vasustore.com/vasu-kumkumadi-tailam-sugar-scrub-age-revitalizing

Ingredients-

The Vasu Sugar Scrub is full of some extraordinary ingredients that make it a unique formulation. They say it is enriched with the power of 22 herbs. The key ingredients are-

  • Natural Sugar & Black Sand– that effectively exfoliates dead cells, dirt, grime and sebum leaving the skin squeaky clean and also helps it breathe properly.
  • Kumkumadi Thailam– is a unique ayurvedic blend of herbs that not only provides you with a brighter looking skin but it is also a secret recipe for a radiant glow in the skin. Apart from these, it also has some great anti-septic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Kumkumadi oil is the ancient anti-ageing secret for the skin.
  • Vitamin E– is a source of powerful antioxidants that fights free radicles and helps in reducing the signs of ageing. It also makes the skin brighter by fading out the blemishes to a great extent.

Packaging-

 

The packaging of this product is very basic, just the way I prefer. It comes in a transparent plastic jar with a screw lid. The transparency of the jar allows you to keep a check on how much product you’re left with. It also has a stopper lid inside that helps to make it secure enough for travelling. Although the plastic packaging is easier and safer to handle and to carry with you, I still wish if they can come up with a glass packaging. Overall I like it because it’s travel-friendly, doesn’t spill or leak.

Texture & Fragrance-

Vasu Kumkumadi Thailam Sugar Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of this is very unique, something I experienced for the first time in my life. It is a sand-like texture but you can feel the mildness of it once touched. The consistency is thick and sticky consistency but I spread effortlessly on the skin.  It is a light golden-brown colour with visible sugar granules and some black particles which I assumed must be the black sand.

The fragrance is a very soothing ayurvedic smell. As far as my nose could perceive, the product smelled mostly of saffron, sandal and a little bit of honey and I am quite convinced as the first two are generally present in Kumkumadi oils. Kumkuma- the main ingredient in Kumkumadi oil is saffron. These make the product quite aromatic and it is something that doesn’t bother you.

How to Use Vasu Sugar scrub-

  • Wet your face and neck,
  • Take a dollop of the scrub on to your palm and rub it between your palms to spread the product evenly before applying.
  • Gently massage your face with the product in circular motions focusing the nose, chin or any other problematic areas on your face.
  • Rinse your face thoroughly with cold water.

About 1-2 minutes of massage would be sufficient as you won’t want to over-exfoliate your skin. You must use this product on wet skin as the consistency is quite thick and it won’t spread on the skin evenly only to make it tough to massage properly. You are advised to use this scrub once or twice a week for better results.

My Experience with the Vasu Sugar Scrub

Vasu Kumkumadi Thailam Sugar Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

I have already told you my experience with sugar scrubs before Vasu Sugar Scrub came into my life. Now, I am going to share my experience after using this product for almost a month. First of all, I am in love with the texture of this. It is exactly how I like my exfoliators to be, loaded with scrubbing particles. If you and I have the same taste in scrubs, you’ll love this product to the core. It comes in a 50g jar but that lasts for long as a little goes a long way.

The sugar granules in it remove dead cells and impurities very effectively without being harsh on the skin. It’s very mild and gentle which is quite unusual for sugar scrubs. This product contains the goodness of Kumkumadi oil that is well-known for its magical properties that adds a youthful glow to the face and is a natural anti-ageing agent. Apart from these, the product is free from any toxins and harmful chemicals, it’s a completely plant-based product, cruelty-free and dermatologically tested.

I use it on the days my skin needs some TLC. I take some of it and apply gently on to my skin. It dissolves on the skin after massaging for a few seconds and turns into a runny form of exfoliant. After washing my face with water, my skin instantly feels clean and rejuvenated. It makes the skin brighter and comparatively tighter with regular use.

Reasons to love this scrub

  • Eliminates dirt, grime, and sebum
  • Provides intense moisturization
  • Gentle yet effective
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enriched with the power of 22 herbs
  • Made In India
  • 40 Year of Excellence & Available in 40+ Countries

I will highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good sugar scrub that doesn’t irritate the skin and at the same time provides intense moisturization.

On 17th of August, ZEE5, one of India’s most popular OTT platforms dropped a brand new show called Bebaakee starring Kushal Tandon, Karan Jotwani and Shivjyoti Rajput and Indian audience is more excited than ever. The gripping story of three young adults, Bebaakee, presents a different take on love and friendship. Among many other love stories India has watched on television, this one is certainly like a breath of fresh air.

An Overview of Bebaakee-

Set in the pristine locations of Shimla, #Bebaakee is a story of two best friends who are more like brothers falling in love with the same girl. The story revolves around the lives of these three and an emotional and passionate take on love, friendship and enmity.

The series will somewhat give you a taste of a family drama as it goes around the lives of two best friends (Mohit Chauhan and Sameer Malhotra) living under one roof with their families and the lives of their sons (Kushal Tandon and Karan Jotwani) growing up together like siblings following the footsteps of their fathers. In spite of that, it won’t take your minds off the fact that this is a passionate love triangle, a very complicated one.

The story is as gripping as it could be and to top off, the set and cinematography is nothing less than a big-budget Bollywood film.

Bebaakee Cast-

ZEE5 Bebaakee Review- The Much-awaited Romantic Drama | Cherry On Top Blog

Kushal Tandon as Sufiyaan Abdullah

Sufiyaan hails from a rich family and looks after Manali’s biggest media house which is a family business. Having a complicated personal life makes Sufiyaan distrustful of women and of ‘love’. He can be described as an egoist to some extent. He eventually falls in love with Kainaat.

Karan Jotwani as Imtiaz Alqaazi

Imtiaz is the son of Sufiyaan’s father’s best friend and they grew up as best friends and blood-brothers. Imtiaz’s character is completely in contrast to Sufiyaan’s. He is caring, intelligent and respectful of all the relationships that he has.

Shiv Jyoti Rajput as Kainaat Sahni

Kainaat is a happy-go-lucky girl with dreams in her eyes and goals in her mind. She becomes the love interest of the two major characters of the series- Sufiyaan and Imtiaz as she joins their media house as a journalist.

Other than these three main characters there are many known faces in supporting roles such as Mohit Chauhan, Sameer Malhotra, Suchitra Pillai, Indraneel Bhattacharya, Saloni Vora, Aditi Vats, Ishaan Dhawan, Krutika Desai, Pubali Sanyal, and Pratik Sehajpal.

The Plot of Bebaakee-

The story of Bebaakee is the story of two best friends or more like brothers, Sufiyaan and Imtiaz, who are poles apart in characteristics but both are very strong personalities in their own way. The only thing that ties them together is the love for each other. In this situation, Kainaat enters Sufiyaan’s life as a journalist in the media house that he runs as a family business. After a short tiff between the two, their mutual love for journalism brings them closer and eventually they find strong chemistry between them.

Things take a turn for worse when Imtiaz falls for the same woman i.e. Kainaat. In one hand she has this passionate love Sufiyaan and on the other Imtiaz, a woman’s dream man with a gentle and caring nature. This triggers the childhood friendship between Sufiyaan and Imtiaz turn into extreme animosity that invokes a chain of unanticipated events that will throw the lives of them in distress.

What Keeps Me Glued to Bebaakee-

ZEE5 Bebaakee Review- The Much-awaited Romantic Drama | Cherry On Top Blog

Bebakee is certainly not something very new to Indian audience but what makes you still watch it is the extremely good direction, the raw and real acting of the cast, the gripping flow of events, the picturesque views of snowclad mountains of Shimla, Manali and the Himalayan foothills, beautiful cinematography and most importantly the emotions of love, friendship and drama.

The dialogues like “Bebaak mohabbat aakhir kya hoti hai? #dilkihitchki” or “Woh Ishq hi kya jismein paagalpan na ho…” are also very catchy and makes the audience even more attached to the characters.

The song Intehaan is a treat to your ears as well as your eyes. It beautifully connects to the audience. The emotions shown through the show is so real that it’s starting to seem very relatable from the very start.

Being a blogger, trying new products is a neverending journey. Even after 7 years of being a beauty blogger, I still get excited to try new brands and new products. It’s not only helpful for my readers but also very enriching for me as well. Recently, I tried a few products from a brand called Ethicare Remedies available on Emegamart.com. This brand is completely new to me and the products are also one of their own kind. You’ll eventually get to know how.

A part of the tube is transparent so that you can keep a tab on how much product you are left with and it also adds to the aesthetics.

Texture & Smell

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of Cutishine Anti-acne face wash is like that of a gel and the consistency is quite runny. The face wash is transparent and has no colour whatsoever. It contains tiny white and golden beads in it which help in gently exfoliate the skin while cleaning it.

The smell is quite like an aftershave or a gent’s EDT. The smell isn’t something I am really fond of. I find it a bit strong for my liking. I love skincare products that are mildly scented.

My Experience with Ethicare Remedies Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

Having been suffering from occasional acne (mainly hormonal) and ‘blessed‘ with oily skin, I never stop searching for that perfect wash for my skin. I have been using this face wash for the past few weeks and I think this is something I definitely should continue using this.

When I started using this face wash, I did not have any active acne. So, I cannot tell you if this removes pimple or not but it certainly helped me keep the occasional pimples at bay. It delayed the arrival of the pimples and as I continued using this, it completely stopped them from appearing.

But, acne is not the main skin concern that I have, it’s the oiliness that bothers me more than the occasional pimples and this face wash has effectively taken care of that. It removes any traces of the excessive sebum that my skin produces during the night and gets accumulated mainly around my nose. Also, the tiny beads in the product help gently exfoliate the skin, unclogging the pores. These beads are not at all harsh on the skin thus could be used on a daily basis.

Despite removing all the extra oil from your face, this product does not dry out your skin or make it stretchy at all. Both Tea tree oil and Salicylic acid work wonders for the acne, tea tree oil is also a great anti-oxidant that fights free radicals. Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid are gentle exfoliants that remove any dead cells from the skin without being abrasive on the skin. Liquorice helps brighten the skin giving it a radiant look. Glycerine and D-Panthenol are great humectants that help moisturize the skin without making it oily. Aloe vera helps the skin soothe and adds a bit of moisture too. Overall, the ingredients list is quite impressive which makes the product totally safe to use.

Despite being engineered for oily, acne-prone skin, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Which anti-acne face wash can you swear by?

Hello, everyone. Hope you all are doing great. Today’s post is a review of the Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub. Before starting off, I just want to put a disclaimer that this post is in no means sponsored or under a collaboration. I have used Mamaearth products in the past and I feel that this brand needs more exposure than what it gets right now. I have been using this particular scrub for the past couple of weeks and I thought it’s just the right time to share my views with you all. Now, let’s jump straight into the review. 

Scrubbing is one of the most essential parts of my skincare routine. I like to scrub my face every two days because I think that’s what works for me the best. Generally, it is advised to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. I also like to scrub my face before and after shaving and also after removing my makeup. Scrubbing my face after makeup has proved to be very beneficial for my skin. It helps keep the breakouts at bay. 

A Few Words on the brand- Mamaearth

Mamaearth is an Indian personal care brand that focuses on natural skin, hair and baby care products which are 100% toxin-free. It is claimed to be Asia’s first Made-safe certified brand.

Also, all the information about this product is written on the tube, including ingredients and manufacturing and expiry dates which I found really handy.

Texture & Smell

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub has a very creamy texture. It’s loaded with micro-exfoliating particles. The consistency is not very thick or not to thin thus it’s quite easy to work with it.  The thickness of the product is just perfect so no need to mix it with water. 

The smell is exactly like exotic coffee and a bit of cocoa. Quite obvious, right? The smell actually helps in calming my senses to some extent. Using it in the mornings can actually help you wake up. I find it exclusively great or me as I am a coffee lover. The scent is quite raw and not at all chemical-like. The best thing about the scent is that it’s not very strong or overpowering. It’s mild and relaxing.

My Experience with MamaEarth Coco Face Scrub

Scrubs are one of my favourite skincare steps. I love this particular product for several reasons.

  • Firstly, this is a very mild exfoliator. The granules are loosely packed and are not very abrasive. That’s why it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. My skin has been acting up lately. It gets bumpy and sometimes sensitive. This scrub doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The second thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t make the skin dry or stretchy. I have used many scrubs in the past and most of them had a tendency to make your skin look and feel dehydrated. Gladly, this one doesn’t. Rather it keeps the skin moisturized even after cleansing it thoroughly. The shea butter in it makes sure your skin is well-nourished and hydrated. This results in a soft and supple skin every time you use this scrub.
  • The aroma of this is another thing about this scrub that I love. The coffee and cocoa smell makes your mornings even more energetic and also help you relax on your tougher days. 

Overall, I found this product very impressive and effective. It gently exfoliates the dead cells off of the skin leaving it nourished and hydrated. It also effectively removes blackheads too. The skin feels soft and smooth after application which I really like. Although this product is a little on the expensive side I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a 100% Indian, natural, chemical-free and hydrating exfoliator. #VocalforLocal

Growing up, most of us have secretly prayed for a pill to get glowing skin, haven’t we? (Don’t get me wrong, I am just talking hypothetically here). Having tried the Glowing skin gummies by Within Nutrition, I felt that my prayers have been answered. I have seen people raving about multivitamin gummies for skin or hair but I never paid heed to those. When I was approached by Within Nutrition to try their glowing skin gummies, I was both sceptical and interested to try them for the first time. Today, in this post, I will share my experience with you.

Price- ₹999 ₹699 (on sale), Buy here- https://www.withinnutrition.in/products/glowing-skin

 

Within Glowing Skin Gummies Review | Cherry On Top

Packaging-

Although I was familiar with the concept of gummy nutrition, I did not have any experience with any. So, I did not know what exactly to expect and how long it might take for the results to show up. All I knew was I have to take 2 gummies daily for 21 days as the number of gummies in one pack is 42. 

These gummies come in a plastic-free jar and that consists 42 gummies in toffee-like packaging. What I liked the most is that each gum is individually packed so if you are out for a day, you don’t need to carry the whole jar. You can carry as many as you want to.

Ingredients- 

The one thing that made me interested to try their product is this wonderful ingredient list. I am writing all of them down with their benefits-

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin that retains water and helps keep it hydrated. It instantly reduces fine lines and makes the skin look dewy.

Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn improves the overall skin health, promotes skin hydration, increases collagen level to boost skin elasticity and firmness and fight inflammation and acne breakouts.

Zinc

Zinc fights acne and prevents any future breakout. It also works as a great antioxidant.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great source of antioxidants with the power to combat free radicals that cause damage to the skin cells. It naturally helps in the skin regeneration process. It helps lighten hyperpigmentation or any dark spots. Vitamin C evens out skin tone, boosts radiance and gives your skin an overall brightened look with regular use.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E fight against any damage occurred to your skin cells due to pollution or UV rays. Also, prevents the signs of ageing. 

Vitamin A

Vitamin A tightens the skin naturally. It helps to hydrate the skin- giving it a naturally radiant and glowy look.

Benefits-

  • Fights Pollution & Prevent Acne
  • Hydrates & Maintains Glow
  • Reduces Blemishes

My Experience with Within Glowing Skin gummies

To be very honest, when I started with these gummies, I wasn’t really sure if this is actually going to be beneficial for me. Yes, I was sceptical. On the initial days, I did not find any significant change in the appearance on my skin. Honestly, it felt a little disappointing. But, I am so glad I did not give up on those. I kept having two gummies a day for about 15 days without missing. That is when the actual difference showed up and it was worth the wait. 

I started to notice a subtle glow on my cheek area and other high points of my face. Now that I am writing this, I realise, the glow started to occur in the starting days itself but it was so subtle that it was not perceivable enough. Anyway, I continued to have two gummies a day and that made the results to show through even better. So far, I have noticed a really nice radiant glow on my skin but I did not see any reduction of the sunspots or the pimple marks that I have on my skin.

Packed with multiple nutrients, these gummies are not only great to have glowing skin, but it’s also beneficial for your overall health.  They have a very mild yet distinct berry flavour and a delectable citrusy taste. These gummies are actually very succulent and yummy. 

The great thing about Within Glowing Skin Gummies is that they are free from any preservatives, all-natural and fssai approved which make them completely safe to consume. 

So, this was my review of the Within Glowing Skin Gummies. It worked for me hence I recommend this to all of you. I want you all to read this review thoroughly to decide whether or not you would like to invest in this product.

Ever since the Covid-19 situation has hit us hard, I believe there are more consumers of hand creams than ever in this country. Washing your hands with soap and water repeatedly and moreover, excessive use of alcohol-based products are definitely as harmful to the skin as they are good for our overall health. So, a hand cream has become a must in your daily lives. It must have taken a permanent position in most of our nightstands. Hand creams are undoubtedly the best you can do to pamper your hands but, what if I tell you about a product that not only moisturizes your hands but also fights germs and works as a sanitizer? I am talking about the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer. Today, I will be reviewing their Lavender variant.

Dot & Key Lavender Hand cream and Sanitizer is a great moisturizer for dry hands that also soothes and kills 99.9% germs with its unique alcohol-free formula. 

Before starting with the review, let me share some information on sanitizers especially keeping the Novel Coronavirus in mind which will be helpful for you to understand the efficacy of this product. Since most of you might be here to know whether or not this hand cream/ sanitizer will effectively fight coronavirus or not, please read this part carefully.

Can Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizers kill Coronavirus?

By now, all of us know a sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol content works best to kill the Novel Coronavirus but does an alcohol-free sanitizer do the job? Well, alcohol-free sanitizers contain a special ingredient called benzalkonium chloride which is a quaternary ammonium compound and it is a conventional antimicrobial commonly used in ophthalmic preparations such as eye drops and lens solutions as a preservative. It is also used as antiseptic and disinfectant in a higher concentrated form. Benzalkonium Chloride is a detergent that denatures proteins and causes lysis of cytoplasmic membranes and is, therefore, a potent broad-spectrum antiseptic. Which pretty much sums up that it has the ability to kill Coronavirus but definitely not as effective as a soap or isopropyl alcohol, ethanol or n-propanol.

Price- ₹ 395/- for 50ml

Buy Here- Nykaa, Amazon, Dot & Key website

Packaging-

Dot & Key Hand cream comes in a cute plastic tube and a black screw-on cap pretty similar to L’Occitane or Boroline tubes. The colour of the tube is correspondent to the fragrance or variant. For example, the Lavender variant comes in a soft lavender-coloured tube. 

All the information including the MRP, Mfg date, batch number and the complete ingredients list is mentioned on the tube itself. The tube comes in a cardboard packaging that is completely pastic-free.

Description-

If you’ve ever sanitized your hands and cringed at how dry they become, you’re not alone. The good thing is, they’ll never feel that way again – not with Dot & Key Hand Cream doing double duty as hand sanitizer and moisturizer. Its active ingredients kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free sanitizer formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process. Even better, the jojoba and shea actives it contains intensely nourish your hands so they feel soft and supple.
Infused with calming lavender and zesty peppermint essential oils, it leaves behind a delicately pleasing fragrance, even as it cleanses and hydrates. With its pocket-friendly size, it’s the perfect go-to for pure, baby-soft hands on the go. All Dot & Key products are dermatologist tested and 100% skin safe, Cruelty-Free, Vegetarian Friendly and free of nasty chemicals like Parabens, Alcohol, PABA, Phthalates & Sulphates. We assure safe, gentle and effective skincare.

Key Ingredients:

Non-Alcohol Sanitizer Actives: Contains active antibacterial ingredients like benzethonium chloride which kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process.

Shea Butter: An excellent moisturizer, its fat content is responsible for its emollient and humectant properties. It locks in the moisture and keeps skin hydrated for long. Helps soften the skin on hands and feet too.

Texture-

This product has a lotion-like texture- not too thick, not too runny. This texture helps it get absorbed into the skin quite fast and effectively. It provides enough moisture to your hands than any other lotion would do.

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer Review

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender Review | Cherry On Top

My experience with Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender & Peppermint has been great. I use it as a hand cream as it gives intense hydration to dry hands. Also, the light texture of this cream allows you to penetrate deep into the skin, providing it with nourishment that it requires and at the same time, it does not feel sticky or oily. 

I am not quite sure if I would recommend you this as a hand sanitizer because this is a time we should not take any risks. If you are looking for a product solely for sanitizing your hands, you should go for something that has 60% or 70% alcohol in it because that will be most effective. However, the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer would be a good option for sanitizing your hands if you are at home and want to do your makeup or skincare with sanitized hands.

Although I love the formula so much and considering the fact that you require a very little amount of product for both your hands, I still feel it is quite expensive for a 50ml tube. 

What is your favourite hand cream at the moment?

They say, “Give a girl the right shoes and she’ll conquer the world”. I am pretty sure what they mean by ‘right shoes’ is shoes that are comfortable. As a blogger, I always feel the need to be in the perfect pair of shoes that will look stylish but won’t give me blisters and shoe bites. I have been to events wearing a stylish, classy pair of stilettos only to come back home with a wounded pair of feet that would ache through the week. I feel I would be the happiest wearing my slippers wherever I go but that can’t happen, right? That is why I am always looking for shoes that are comfortable, not irritating, and shoes that I don’t feel like removing after an hour. They also need to be stylish so that I can pair them with anything stylish. Happenstance has got my back!

Key Features of Happenstance footwear

Now, let me focus on the key features of this footwear that I have seen from my experiences.

Comfort within Budget-

It’s not always easy to find a perfectly comfortable pair of footwear within budget but now you won’t have to worry about that. Happenstance has an array of shoes that are comfortable like any high-end brand and at the same time they don’t burn a hole in your pocket, unlike others. The price range is from 999 to 1299 which is such a steal deal for me considering the material and features they have to offer.

Check out their website here.

Huge Variety of Stylish Footwear to Men & Women-

If you assumed that the fact that Happenstance focuses on comfort and affordability compromised on the variety and looks of the product then you are certainly under a wrong impression. Happenstance has a huge variety of footwear for both men and women that are scientifically made for comfort yet they have kept an eye on the looks so that they can cater to modern-day necessities as well.

They have three different styles of footwear for women- Sandals, Shoes and Ballet Flats and for men, they have only one category as of now and that is Sandals.

Suitable for Both Indian & Western Wear-

We often get confused when we have to pair one particular footwear with our western and Indian outfits but the ones from Happenstance are fitting for both. You can mix and match them with any ethnic or fusion outfit and it will give it a smart and trendy look without making it too obvious. You can refer to the styling I have done with the brick coloured Ballet flats.

The Science behind Happenstance Shoes-

Happenstance shoes are meticulously made for right fit and comfort. All their shoes are mainly built with comfortable footbeds or insoles which are soft enough to absorb shock on impact and sturdy yet bouncy midsole and outsole that is firm enough to spring back with each step for enhanced responsiveness. The soles of the footwear are airy light that results in great cushioning, flexibility and fit.

The knitted covers of the shoes and ballet flats are specially designed for breathability and grip for ultimate comfort. The material makes for a super stretchy fabric that hugs your feet for a perfect fit. The snugness of the knit top works like a second skin for your feet and gives you maximum flexibility.

GRACE- stylish black strappy sandals

I would also want to talk about the quality of the materials here. The Velcro used in the GRACE sandals that I have is of great quality. It keeps my feet in place and stays put regardless of the intensity of activities. The straps are also very sturdy and ensure great fit and comfort. The soft straps with velvety finish give it a stylish look.

The textured insole gives a proper grip to your feet and also ensures long-wear without making the feet uncomfortable or tired.

BLOOM- classy brick red ballet flats

The second pair, BLOOM, is great for both ethnic and western outfits. You can mix and match with anything I want. The colour is a classy red which can be a statement in itself. The multi-layered

sole ensures maximum flexibility and support. Talking about flexibility, I would like to tell you that this shoe is so flexible that it can be folded in half so easily.

Final Words

Overall, I want to say that Happenstance is a brand that I can now trust blindfolded. The comfort, the style and flexibility of the shoes are unmatched and cannot be found in ordinary brands. The product they offer within such a price is unbelievable. Their footwear is great if you are looking for effortless styling. It is a must-have for all of us who are looking for daily wear stylish shoes. I highly recommend them.
