Skin Care

October Beauty Favourites 2013
October Beauty Favourites 2013

1. The Body Shop Hemp Moisturising Hand Wash:

 I got this almost around the middle of the month because it claimed to not dry out your hands while cleansing it. Well, this is absolutely what it does. I have been loving it a lot lately and have been using this as my regular hand wash except for the time when I need real good heavy duty anti-bacterial hand wash. It does not dry out my hands and keeps them supple. I just have to use a non greasy hand cream and I am good to go. I am so gonna use this during winters!

2. Olay total effects 7-1 Age Defying Face Wash: 

My mum gave this to me because this product does not foam up. I was initially frustrated because I am not used to such non-foaming cleansers. But then, this proved out to be amazing. It cleanses my face well and is very gentle on the skin. I like how it is very creamy and you actually don’t need a lot of product per usage. I have been using this as my regular face wash these days. 

3. Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser: 

This must be my Nth bottle of this product. I am an absolute fan of the Mario Badescu products and this is one of my HG skin care products. I use this around twice weekly and this is an excellent exfoliant. It can take out any make up in seconds. It leaves the skin very soft and smooth. I have repurchased it over and over again. 

4. Jergens Age Defying Multi Vitamin Moisturiser: 

This one is another mum given products as she got bored with it. Well this is a huge bottle sweety. This is a decent moisturiser. Sinks in easily into the skin. Doesn’t feel greasy at all and keeps my skin moisturised for the entire day. Has a nice mild fragrance which though doesn’t last very long. I love the fact that it comes with a pump dispenser. 

5. Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream: 

I am totally in love with this cutie pie. I have already ordered the raspberry variety. It is an excellent lip moisturiser and makes my lips so soft and smooth. You can read the detailed review with more pictures “HERE

Hair Care

1. Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque:

 Girl, if you watch youtube or read beauty blogs, you know how much this product is raved about all over the world by beauty gurus/bloggers. I am not untouched by its charm. It is my HG deep conditioner and a worthy treat to my hair. I will repurchase this over and over again until I find something even better 😛 . I have done a detailed review about it which you can have a look at “HERE

2. Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment: 

Again an almost HG status product. It has natural macadamia nut oil and works really great at keeping the dryness at bay. I just like to use one pump everytime I am out of the shower and my hair is semi-dry. I spread it all throughout my hair except the roots and mainly concentrating on the ends of my hair. My hair looks healthier and shinier. It also claims to protect from heat damage which btw is awesome. I have finished 3 bottles of this already. One 125 ml bottle lasts me for 4-5 months when I use it every other day. 

3. Brocato Actives Hair Serum: 

I got this in my Vellvette Bag this time. You can have a look at it “HERE“. It is an organic product and well, I have enjoyed using this. It works like an excellent serum and gives that soft and silky feeling to your hair. Has a very mild fragrance which I really like. 

4. Forest Essentials Mashoobra Honey and Vanilla Shampoo:

I showed you guys when I got this along with other FE products in my Haul “HERE” If you have smelled this, you wont disagree when I say this is one of the most awesome smelling shampoos out there. Made of all natural ingredients I can’t seem to have enough of it. It is gentle yet effectively cleanses the hair without making my shafts really dry. Becuase it doesn’t cause added dryness like regular shampoos, it helps with my frizz. I love love love this shampoo!!! 

Make Up

1. Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints:

 If you follow us on Facebook or G+, you know how much I have raved about it all over. I actually bought all the shades available and more shades are on their way to me. I have swatches all the shades and done a compiled post on it “HERE” . If you are interested in buying a shade from this line, you can go through the post and select the shade you wanna buy. These have excellent formula, great staying power, non toluene containing affordable product. I have been loving them super-much!

2. Nyassa Rose Body Mist: 

This was also one of the products I got in my Vellvette box. A decent rose fragrance body mist. All natural and smells of fresh roses. Though the smell doesn’t linger around for long, I am a fan of the pure rose smell this has. 

3. Kim Kardashian Women’s EDT:

 My mum gave this to me as a present and I just love it like crazy. I love Kim and I love her perfume 😀 The notes are mandarin, honeysuckle, orange blossom, jasmine, tuberose, gardenia, tonka bean, jacaranda wood, vanilla orchid, musk and sandalwood.This has the best staying power ever. Stays more than 20 hours sometime, Not kidding!! 

4. Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart: 

My second most loved lip product. I just need this on my lips and I am ready to go. Very soft pigmentation with excellent moisturisation. Amazing formula and great packaging. It makes my lips smooth and naturally healthy. I would totally recommend this for everyday wear, even to the beauties who don’t like to or can’t really wear make up at work. 

5. VOV Eyeliner: 

A decent water based eyeliner. Quite affordable. I actually got this in a hurry at some shop in Goa and it didn’t prove to be so bad afterall. I like it because it has this really good liner brush and colour is really nice black. Best part is, it comes right off with normal face washes. I have been wearing this when I need to go out for a couple of hours etc. 

6. Maybelline Colossal Kajal:

 Who doesn’t love these beauties from Maybelline. I have enjoyed using this. Although it smudges a little, well I like a little smudging 😛 . Good long staying formula. I have to get my hands on the 12 hours colossal kajal now! 

7. Lakme Nail Polish Remover: 

It is one of the best nail polish remover available out there. Priced at 60/- INR it has vitamin E and it takes the nail paints right off. Doesn’t make your nails look extra white and dry. For my ultimate nail paint swatching that day “HERE“, I used this. I used up almost half a bottle that day. 

8. Lakme CC Cream – Bronze: 

After the era of BB creams, there came CC creams, now what? DD creams? (Doordarshan creams :/ :/ ) 😛 :S 😀 Bad PJ, I know. Ok I’ll stop. 
I love their soft texture. It gives me a medium coverage and evens out skin tone. Doesn’t make me go extra greasy as I already have an oily skin type. Although I did notice that at times if you overuse it, it can leave that white cast thing on the skin. Detailed review would be up soon. 
So, I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures and thanks for being such a wonderful viewers!!
