Organic Harvest: Lip Therapy | Review

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.

The Ordinary: Buffet | Review

“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.

MAC: Extra Dimension Skin Finish- Shaft of Gold |Swatched

MAC’s Extra Dimension Skin finishes are some of the best highlighters around. Shaft of Gold was a part of MAC’s Magic of the Night 2015 holiday collection. I am not sure if its still available but if you like the colour a good dupe is  Bae Area by Colourpop. MAC describes it as a “deep bronze.” It’s a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a gold shimmer finish. Looks great on deeper Indian Skin Tones. It also makes for a nice day time eye-shadow.

The Ordinary – Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% | Review

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.

Lakme: 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour – Burgundy Lush | Swatched

This product has a mousse consistency and goes on the lips smooth and sets matte. It is quite pigmented and if one intends to use it on their cheeks; little will go a long way. The shade Burgundy Lush is great Red that will suit the Indian Skin Tone.

Organix: Strength & Body + Bamboo Fiber-Full Conditioner|Review

I ran out of conditioner and was on the look out for a new one. Since I have been having a good run with OGX I thought why not try one more from the same brand. I have been struggling with winter dryness and resultant limp hair. I wanted something that will add volume and help with the cold weather problems so I opted for the Strength & Body + Bamboo Fiber-Full Conditioner.
