Since forever I have been trying to find a lip balm that works for me. I am one those miserable people who have chapped lips all year round and have tried lip balms from various brands and many-many home remedies. So far the only product that has some effect is an over-night slathering of the transparent Baby Lips from Maybelline. Now that I am consciously trying to transition towards natural and organic products, this time I decided to give Organic Harvest a shot.
“Buffet” is the first product I ever came to know about from The Ordinary brand. The ingredients, the very expensive peptide technologies it was using and the load of praise it was recieving seemed too good to be true! I had to see for myself if this Multi-Technology Peptide Serum – “Buffet” was worth the hype it was creating in the skincare community.
As I mentioned in my posts earlier, I have been meaning to add Acids in my skincare routine to help with exfoliation while targeting the textural irregularity on my face. I have never tried acid’s before so to start with I wanted to start small so I chose Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%, A Mild Lactic Acid Superficial Peeling Formulation from The Ordinary. They also offer a more potent 10% solution but since I am a beginner in the acid-for-skin-care realm I decided to go slow.
For the longest time I had been wanting to incorporate an acid at the Toning stage of my PM skincare. I have a lot of visible texture on my skin so I settled for Glycolic Acid for its exfoliating properties. It is claimed to work comparatively quickly which is an attribute of its smaller size molecule that helps it penetrate the epidermis and give faster results. I opted for The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution because of the rave reviews it has earned from the skin-care community and of course that unbeatable price point!
I know I am late to this party because Vaseline launched their spray moisturizers in India last winter and globally a little before that. So obviously there were sponsored posts about it literally everywhere. Sponsored blog features, PR Kits and tonnes of ad space hasn’t ever proven helpful for me so I stopped trusting those long ago and decided not to buy this one! But this winter Ms. Super Consumer gifted me the Coco Radiant variety of the Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer, so I gave it a shot and to be honest it has surprised me!
I bought a bunch of stuff from The Ordinary and I absolutely had to have the much talked about Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% which is claimed to be a High-Strength Vitamin and Mineral Blemish Formula.
You’ve gotta check out the stuff this promises to do! It’s almost marketed like black-magic in a jar, to go with that- an equally hefty price to support that ridiculous claim! Since I was absolutely certain that time travelling to the past & regaining my glorious younger skin is impossible, whatever EL’s marketing may claim; I did not buy this on my own accord! I tried this product only because I received this as a sample when I purchased the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.
“If it is good for the Duchess of Cambridge- Kate Middleton, its got to be good for me!” And so I went looking for this miracle oil. Read ahead about the stuff I found out about this Skincare Superstar.
We go to great lengths to get rid of blackheads. Most effective methods are often painful so when a brand creates something that offers blackhead removal minus the pain it totally deserves a chance. Ms. Super Consumer introduced me to the Innisfree – Jeju Volcanic 3 in 1 Nose Pack and when a product has “3 in 1” in its name I am more than just happy to test drive it.
