Summer is at its fullest and it’s reaching up to 40°C every other day here where I live. In this condition, there is no other way to survive than having a shower twice or thrice a day. Every time you have a shower, you need to make sure you smell good because summer makes you all sweaty and stinky. A nice fragrant bath can make you feel a lot fresher. So, choosing good shower products is very important now. Today, I’ll be talking about two of my favourite products for a perfect summer shower routine from the brand SkinellaSkinella Mandarin Gel Body Wash and Skinella Pink Guava Body Polish Scrub.

My Summer Shower Routine

My summer shower routine includes only two steps- washing my body and scrubbing my body. I wash my hair thrice a week so that doesn’t include in the everyday shower routine. Thrice a week, I also use an intimate wash. Currently, I am loving the Everteen Intimate Hygiene Wash (read the review). Coming back to the two bath products, I use the Mandarin Gel Body Wah for squeaky clean my body and then the Pink Guava Body Polish Scrub to get rid of the dead cells.

I love using shower gels during summer. Shower gels are more fragrant than soaps and the fragrance lingers for quite some time. Also, shower gels are more hydrating in comparison to soaps. Because you cannot put oil or heavy creams on your body post-shower, it is clever to use a moisturizing body wash in the first place. You can then hydrate your body with a light lotion if you feel the need.

Skinella Mandarin Gel Body Wash has an exotic mandarin fragrance which freshens you up and makes your shower time pleasant. The citrusy smell is apt for summertime.

As I can already make out, the body wash comes in a gel form, a little product goes a long way. This product is suitable for all skin types. My body is dry most of the time and this product doesn’t dry it out and provides long-lasting hydration because of the essential oils in it.

No matter what the season is, I love scrubbing my body. It doesn’t only help me get rid of the dead cells but also makes me feel a lot fresher and my skin feels supple and smooth.  Skinella Pink Guava Body Polish Scrub is one of my favourite body exfoliators because it has very finely milled scrubbing particles that they claim to be real oink guava. It works very gently yet effectively on my skin. I hate scrubs that feel like wet sand on the body. I don’t like exfoliating my body so much that it feels like ripping my skin off of my body. A mild scrub with tender particles works best for me.

I am quite disappointed with the fragrance. It sounds like an exotic aroma but in reality, it doesn’t. The smell is so faint that it almost smells like nothing.

This scrub doesn’t dry out your skin. You don’t feel the urge to apply body lotion right after the shower. This is hydrating to some extent.

Where to Buy Skinella Products-

Skinella products are exclusively available on Amazon.in. They are available in singles and also in kits and combos.

What I love about the brand Skinella, is that they provide the best results within budget. You don’t get to try different exotic variants in such a little price.  Everyone can try their products from professionals to college students. Their products are 100% safe to use. I’ve also got three more products from their face care range. Feel free to let me know if you want me to review them as well.

Disclaimer- The products were kindly sent to me by the brand in return for an honest review.

It had been quite a while (read ages) since I last oiled my hair. The last time I had oiled my hair was when I was in school. Recently, I decided to give the Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil a go because of two reasons. One, I was planning to include hair oiling to my hair care regime. Second, I have got sent a bottle of the hair oil by the brand right at that moment. It’s been a month since I started using this hair oil religiously and today I’ll share with you my experience.

Price- ₹185 (Buy here)

Packaging-

Lalam Oil Plus hair oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap and the bottle comes inside a white box which has all the information printed on it. The packaging is nothing special but it is totally spill-proof, thus very travel-friendly.

Formulation & The Science Behind-

RootBioTec HO
Prevents hair loss, stops premature greying and promotes growth.

Based on an extract from a hairy root culture from basil, Root Phytotec HO helps reduce hair loss by inhibiting 5α reductase activity and by stimulating dermal papilla cells.
Hair loss affects both women and men. In 95 % of all cases of hair loss occurring exclusively on the head,
the cause is an increased sensitivity of the hair follicles
to the androgenic hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Androgenic alopecia, which is the name of the condition, is hereditary, permanent and continues as one gets older.

Root Phytoteca Novel Technique developed to produce Cosmetic Actives
For the production of Root Phytotec HO, Mibelle Biochemistry developed a novel sustainable technique to produce high amounts of the active compounds of basil in bioreactors.

The “hairy roots” technology is a type of plant tissue culture that is used to produce high quality, phytogenic compounds of pharmaceutical value.

Long lasting benefits of Root Phytotec

• Prevents hair loss
• For fuller hair
• Stimulates hair papilla cells
• Rejuvenates scalp

My Experience with Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil

Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil Review

My scalp is always very oily. That is the reason why I wash my hair more often than I should. It tends to trip off the natural oils from my scalp. So, it was necessary for me to oil my hair at least twice to stop my hair from getting dry. I always thought, if I oil my hair it will make it worse since my scalp is already very oily. But, to my surprise, it did nothing of that sort.

I use this oil thrice a week to avoid any extra oiliness in my hair but the company says the best results will show up if you use this oil every day. If you are like me, use it thrice a week and you will get a good result too. It has arrested my hair fall for about 60%.

The best thing about this oil is that it is non-sticky and does not cause any irritation to my scalp or facial skin. A great tip on hair-oiling for you would be- always apply hair oil on a clean scalp. Shampoo your hair first and then apply the hair oil the next day. It will allow the oil to come in contact with your scalp and provide nourishment.

When I massage my scalp with this oil, my hair looks and feels more manageable than ever after I wash my hair. It has a mild fragrance of herbs, mostly methi. The smell lingers for long even after a couple of washes.

I am satisfied with the Lalam Oil Plus Hair Oil. Have you used it yet?

Hello, everyone! I am back with yet another review. Today, I am going to review and swatch all three shades of the brand new Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons. Recently, Nivea has released its first affordable lip crayons range in India and they sent the entire collection that comprises of three shades of lip crayons to me to review and share with you guys. So, let’s start with the review-

Price- ₹299 for 3g

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

The care of Nivea lip balm now with high colour coverage in the New Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons!

Delivering a long lasting colour effect, this lip balm will create the perfect balance of a soft touch and satin finish. Enjoy soft kissable lips wherever you are! This lip balm glides on evenly and easily for that flawless look with a creamy texture. #LoveYourLips!

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Hot Pink-

Hot Pink is a bright fuschia pink with cool undertones that suits most Indian skin tones. The colour gives you a subtle hint of pink when applied to the lips so it is not an on-the-face hot pink unlike the name of this shade.

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Pop Red-

Pop Red is a bright red shade that can brighten up a dull day. I did not expect this shade to look this rich!

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Coral Crush-

Coral Crush is again a bright shade of coral/orange. I am not very fond of coral lip shades but the subtleness of this shade makes it one of my favourite everyday summer colour!

Ingredients- Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Olus Oil, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Candelilla Cera, Phytosteryl Oleate, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, C10-30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Cera Alba, Dibutyl Lauroyl Glutamide, Octyldodecanol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Cera, Persea Gratissima Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, Tocopherol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-dit-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, BHT, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Linalool, Aroma, Alumina, CI 15850, CI 45380, CI 77891

Packaging-

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons come in regular plastic lip crayon packaging. It is a fat, twist-up pencil with a transparent lid. Although the tip of the crayon still remains outside even after twisting the crayon down till the end which can damage the tip if you are inattentive while putting the lid on. What I liked about their packaging is that each crayon is colour-coded and also the transparent lids make it easier for you to pick your desired colour in a hurry.

My Experience with Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons-

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

If you are following me for a long time you’d know that I am obsessed with lip balms. I hate the feeling of chapped lips and I cannot step out of the house without moisturizing my lips. For daily use, I prefer tinted lip balms that protect my lips also give me some sort of colour to the lips. I cannot leave my house in bare lips. Mostly, I am into lipsticks but sometimes you just want to ditch the lipsticks and go for something natural-looking.

When I received the Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons, I was beyond happy because I found what I was looking for quite some time now. These crayons are insanely pigmented and oh-so hydrating. The longevity of these crayons is not very bad considering they are very soft and sheeny. The texture of these crayons is very smooth and creamy so that they don’t accentuate the creases on your lips. The crayons literally glide on your lips. You can lessen the shine by dabbing a tissue onto your lips or by applying some translucent powder on top. I like them as they are. These are also transferable. The colour fades to the edges after a meal, but they provide long-lasting moisture. Even after the colour is gone, your lips are hydrated. You can always reapply these whenever necessary.

Overall, these tinted lip balms are a must-try if you are looking for something like these within budget. I am very happy with the shades and the colour payoff. The moisture they provide is very satisfying.

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.

Hey, guys! Hope you are doing well. Today, I will be talking about my favourite cake shop, Mio Amore. I know a lot of you must know about the brand. I have been their regular customer since I tasted them for the first time. I travel 20-25 kilometres just to have their Eggless Muffin as my nearest Mio Amore shop is situated in Kalyani. I am that obsessed with them.

As I live in the suburbs of Kolkata, my area doesn’t have many fancy bakeries. Mio Amore, thus, is the only source of quality baked goods within budget. I love how their items are always fresh and sold in a hygienic condition.

Recently, I tried some of their classics and new launches and thought of sharing a review with my readers. That was literally a treat to me because I had already tasted one or two of the items before. Now, it was my opportunity to tell the world how much I loved them.

Chunky Chicken Burger-

Tasting New Mio Amore Food Items | Mio Amore Chunky Chicken Burger | Cherry On Top

How many of you love crispy fried chicken over chicken patties as a filling in your burger? I do! The chicken piece is tender and juicy and covered with all the flavours they have infused. It has the perfect amount of sweet and spicy taste.

Price- ₹45/-

Multigrain Chicken Croissant-

Tasting New Mio Amore Food Items | Mio Amore Multigrain Chicken Croissant | Cherry On Top

This is something new in my opinion as I never found them in my nearest shops. This is basically a croissant made of multigrain flour and stuffed with spicy minced chicken. This item is really tasty and filling. The bread was fresh and firm but very soft.

Price- ₹35/-

Cheestix-

Tasting New Mio Amore Food Items | Mio Amore Cheestix | Cherry On Top

This is actually a box full of cheesy breadsticks that can very well be served as a snack or accompaniment. This thing is best when there are friends coming over and you’re not sure about what to binge on while chatting. This crispy, flaky, yummy Cheestix can be a great party-starter. The best thing is that they are baked, not fried.

Price- ₹75/- (per box)

Mango Cruffin-

Tasting New Mio Amore Food Items | Mio Amore Mango Cruffin | Cherry On Top

If you are a mango lover then this is just perfect for you! A Cruffin is a term that basically stands for a mix of a muffin and a croissant or a muffin-shaped croissant to be precise. It is soft and flaky like a croissant filled with mango-flavoured cream which is sweetened to perfection. I loved this item!

Tasting New Mio Amore Food Items | Mio Amore Carrot Cake | Cherry On Top

As you must know, Mio Amore is known and loved for their selection of cakes. This was my first time trying their carrot cake and I just loved it to the core. This is probably the softest cake I have ever tried. This is the yummiest, softest, moistest loaf of cake. The texture is quite similar to their Dates & Walnut cake but I found this to be my favourite as this is not too overpowering, just a blend of subtle flavours.

Price- ₹150 (for a loaf)

What’s your favourite item from Mio Amore?

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.

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.

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?
