Review: St.Ives Make Up Remover & Facial Cleanser

Saturday, July 19, 2014




On a recent trip to local market, i brought it home with other stuff. I have been st.ives facial scrub since forever now and decided to give this a try as i was running short of my other cleanser. But let me confess , it did not win my heart. Let me tell you why ..

What does it claims ?

Review: St.Ives Make Up Remover & Facial Cleanser

My thoughts:
The moment i open it i knew that i am not going to like it. The fragrance is kind of medicinal. The texture is so greasy and sticky. I tried to massage it on my moist face but it got worse. It did not remove any single traces of makeup. Keeping it in mind that i was not wearing waterproof make up that day. Just a bit of bb cream, kohl and lipstick. It smears kohl everywhere and sticks on my face like i have applied glue or something like that. It was very difficult to remove makeup then.
I don't know why they name it as a make up remover when it is not capable of doing so. It is not worth buying at all, not even as an everyday cleanser. It is so greasy and creamy that i am afraid that it might break me out. I stopped using it after two failed attempts. I lost hope.
In my opinion, this product is not meant for oily or combination skin, may be somebody with very dry skin may find it suitable. But for me its a big no no.

Lovelyshoes.net sent me a gift card to spend on their website and I selected two pair of shoes. Lets see what I have to say about my experience with them
 

1. Zebra Print Flats Cute Bowknot Flats :
 I love animal prints and keep buying things in leopard , tiger or zebra prints. How can I ignore these flats in gorgeous red color and leopard print. The have written here zebra print but in real it is a sexy leopard print. I guess a typo mistake. The shoes are matches the stock picture provided on their website. Here Is the stock picture:

Shoes are same like stock picture provided. I love this red bowknot details and leopard print on it.


The material is suede and it is well made. I selected size 39 Chinese which is equal to size 38 UK. The shoes fits me well and comfortable to walk in. Some loose threads are visible though.




Sole of shoes are also made neatly and does not slips while walking. You can see in these pictures the quality is good and worth the price you pay for it.You can buy it here for $12.16

My ratings:

2. Fashion Black Wedges Bowknot stitching Sandals :

These wedge sandals are light weight and very comfortable. They sent me size 37 instead of 39 which is a bit smaller on me but I still can wear these and walk in comfortably. I love these shoes. These are made with suede material and well stitched. The buckles fastens easily and bowknot looks very cute.

Review: ORGLOW Instant Organic Face Brightening Mask

Sunday, June 15, 2014
Today i am going to review the much talked about product of the local blogosphere ... yes you guessed it right .. Its Orglow Instant Organic Face Brightening Mask. Lets see what is my opinion about this product.

ORGLOW Instant Organic Face Brightening Mask

Packaging: 

Packaging is nothing fancy but very basic and simple. It comes in a cheap plastic jar which has a twist open cap and a inner seal to protect product from the effects of environment. The jar is huge in size and not so travel friendly. I wish if they could put a little more effort into their packaging and labels. What i felt missing is a ingredients list. I wish if they could include ingredients list to satisfy curious customers .. like me :(. They have mentioned expiry date so you have to use it within six months after opening.

ORGLOW Instant Organic Face Brightening Mask

ORGLOW Instant Organic Face Brightening Mask

My Thoughts:
I was sent this product two weeks back for my consideration. Like other products i used it on alternate days for two weeks and now i am able to share my findings with my readers. My skin was dull and got a summer tan before i started using it.
Its a herbal grounded mixture which has to be mixed with yogurt and rose water (as i have oily skin). The scent of this product when mixed with yogurt is a put off for me. The granules or beads in it can be a little harsh for your facial skin so be gentle when rubbing it off. I applied it on my whole face and neck and left for twenty minutes and then rinse. I felt instant glow in my complexion which i honestly speaking did not expected as it is a herbal product without fancy packaging. My skin felt smoother, baby soft and supple. It removes all the dead skin and white heads efficiently. The next day i got compliments from my fellows if i had some skin treatment. After using it for two weeks i feel that my summer tan is gone, skin is healthier and toned. Only few stubborn blackheads are left behind. The whitening claim is not true but it helps in removing tan and making complexion better.
The only put off for me is its scent, otherwise its a decent products which does what it claims.

You may like this product if:

  • you wants instant results.
  • you are happy with the results.
  • You like organic products
  • The smell does not bothers you
  • looking for a solution for your dull skin
  • Its a Pakistani product and you feel proud using it.
You may not like this if:

  • you are into fancy floral smelling products
  • ingredients list is not there
  • packaging is very basic
  • price tag bothers you
My Rating:
4 out of 5

Price:
850 Rs. You can buy it HERE. Join their Facebook page for more information.

Review : Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi Action Face Wash

Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Review : Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi Action Face Wash

Life is getting busier day by day. Gone are the days when we carry many different gadgets with us to perform various tasks. Now its all about Hitting two birds by one stone. Today in the spotlight is Pond's Pimple-clear White Multi action face wash. Lets see what does it claims:


Review : Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi Action Face Wash
 
 
My thoughts:
I have been using Pond's Pure White Beauty face wash (review) religiously in summers and love it for sure. On a recent visit to supermarket I spotted new range of Pond's face washes. It was also available in Acne-clear and  anotherone with scrub. I picked up this because I do not have serious acne breakouts rather just one or two occasional pimples. I started using it two weeks back when one pimple appeared near my chin. After first wash, my face instantly felt thoroughly cleansed, toned, brighten up and oil free. I also noticed that my complexion looks even out. It reduced the swollen around pimple area and it disappeared in a two or three days. But I also noticed that it is not much effective in clearing up acne scars but it did heal it really well. I had a few whiteheads and on regular use I noticed that they are also gone away.
The smell is almost identical to Pond's Pure White Beauty Facial Foam which is mild and kind of herbal. The face wash lathers up well and a pea size amount is enough to clean your face and neck efficiently. This is my new love from Pond's range of face washes. Here are the ingredients :
 
Ingredients : Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi Action Face Wash
 To sum it up, I would say that its a effective face wash for oily skin, makes skin firmer, toner and brighter. It is a good product if you have few pimples and wants to get rid of them without digging any hole in your pocket.
 
My rating:
 4/5
 
You may like this if:
  • You have oily or combination skin
  • have occasional breakouts
  • looking for something affordable
  • you are not allergic to salicylic acid
  • it works for you.
  • easily available
You may not like this if:
  • Salicylic acid irritates your skin.
  • acne scars are not gone
Price:
Rs. 250 for 100g
 
Availability:
 
Across the nation on all leading supermarkets and stores.

NOTD: Bling Bling nails

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Let me confess , I am not a Pro when it comes to nail art. But I love to practice my nail art skills when ever I get enough time from household chores and a toddler who keeps me occupied all the time. Nail art needs a lot of practice and patience and I am the impatient babe for sure.
I always look for something easier to apply on my nails and make them look festive and bling-y.
I had to attend a close friend's wedding , so I did this nail art yesterday.

 
1. Nail Art Glitter Round Hexagon sheet:

For this nail art, I used the Beautyuk nail polish and nail glitter hexagon round ones and snowflake and a cute bow rhinestoned nail decoration. I just applied two coats of nail polish and while it was still wet decorated my nails with glitters and these metal decorations. Is not it that easy?




 I love these nail glitters. It comes in a plastic lid jar and contains a lot of product. They shifts colors and gives beautiful rainbow effect in sunlight. You can buy these here.

2. Skull Bow Rhinestone nail art decoration wheel:

It comes in a decoration wheel which is very practical in storing these nail art articles individually. It has 10 pcs of metal and rhinestones nail art pieces. It has bows, skulls, snowflakes, key and crown which is decorated with rhinestones and pearls both in silver and gold finish. My favorite ones are skulls and bows. These are easy to apply and stick with wet nail polish or top coat. You can use nail art adhesive for more secure application, but I did not feel the urge to do so.


You can buy this Here from bornprettystore.com . They have a wide range of nail art supplies and  other beauty products. They have offered an exclusive discount for my blog readers so go and grab yourself some fabulous products and bargain prices.

Discount code:

Review : Himalaya Herbals Clarifying Fairness Face Wash

Thursday, May 29, 2014

I bought it along with Himalaya Herbals Whitening face scrub (Review Here) few months back. But tried it last month when I needed something to remove summer tan from myself. Its the perfect time to review as I have almost finished it and can better let you know what is my honest opinion about this product.


What does it claims:

Himalaya’s Clarifying Fairness Facewash is a soap-free, natural formulation that brightens and rejuvenates your skin, giving it a healthy, natural glow.
Enriched with Saffron, proven for its complexion enhancing properties, this face wash gives you a fairer and clearer complexion. Pomegranate nourishes, while Mint cools and Cucumber soothes your skin, leaving it refreshed.

Directions for use:

Moisten face, apply a small quantity of Clarifying Fairness Face Wash and gently work up a lather using a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry. Use twice daily.

Suitable for all skin types.

My thoughts:
It comes in regular transparent squeeze tube with green flip open lid. I have been regularly using it for one month now .The first thing that i noticed was a mild fragrance which reminds me of a herbal mixture made with sandal powder and rose water. The fragrance is mild but refreshing. After first wash i noticed that my skin was clean and refreshed. It contains mint which cools and soothes skin. My skin instantly felt relaxed and calmed. It does it job pretty well as a regular face wash. But the Instant Glow factor was missing. The ingredients are all natural and i love natural products. I know that herbal products works slowly But i did not notice any improvement in my complexion ever after one month. It just made it appear cleansed without feeling dry or stretchy. The whitening claim is not correct. I also did not noticed any improvement in my scars or blemishes. I feel sad for that. I wish if it could lighter them a bit.
Over all, it is just an average facial wash which does cleansing part really well and makes skin refreshed but did not live up to its claim on whitening or complexion improvement.

My ratings:
3 out of 5

Repurshase:
No , i will try some other product.

Price:
Rs. 190 in Pakistan

That's all for today. Currently working on a giveaway post which will be up live this week . so stay tuned girls.

Black Leopard Print Sequined Tote Bag By Dresslily

Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Hi girls, This bag is sent to me by dresslily.com for review purpose but all the opinions shared are my own and totally honest.
They offered me to select any product from their website and I spent a whole day on their website to search that what should I select . Then this black leopard print sequined bag took my heart. I have a soft spot in my heart for animal prints when it comes to fashion accessories. I already have 3 bags in my wardrobe with leopard and zebra prints. I believe that they look very cute and trendy. Meet my new bag thoroughly :

Inside view : black leopard print sequined bag by dresslily.com

This bag is made with PU leather which feels soft and sturdy. The bag is black with a portion of sequins present in the front bottom which is divided by a golden zipper with tussels made of some suede material. The back is of leopard print which has small glitters glued on it.The bag is of good quality and sewed well. The zippers are functional and smoothly opens and closes. The size of this bag is medium and it easily carries all my daily essentials. The inner of this bag is made of plain black cloth and have one small pocket and cell phone compartments. Another small pocket is present on the back. The strap is adjustable. For more details about size and dimensions of this bag click here.

Dresslily.com is an online wholesale retailer of Women and Men Fashion Accessories. They have a wide range of dresses, shoes, jewelry and other fashion accessories. What I like most about their website that its easy to navigate and there is a separate link for free shipping products. But I also noticed that most of the products that were present in the free shipping link was mentioned with higher prices than normal. I assumed that they mentioned here products with estimated shipping charges or fixed shipping rate. But what so ever I loved this because it makes you feel relaxed while shopping and you do not have to calculate shipping charges while checkout.

That's all for today. It getting really hot here in Karachi. So I am sipping on my favorite lemonade. What is your favourite summer drink ?
