What’s One Product That Dramatically Improved Your Skin?

Kate’s got that magic. 🧙‍♀️Oh, this one’s easy. I rave about it all the time. Definitely Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion! It totally changed my skin…and my life. I’m prone to breakouts, and when I don’t use this potent, preternatural pimple cream, the zits return, and they return in full force. Anti-Bac contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, which really isn’t that cutting edge in terms of acne fighting ingredient, but the devil’s in the details I guess, because there’s something wonderful about this particular formulation that my skin loves. The effect is almost immediate. It goes to work clearing up any existing pimples I have and prevents new breakouts entirely. Seriously, like within a few days! Nothing else I’ve found works quite like it, and I’ve tried everything. I have to...

MAC Glow Play Blush

[unpaid/samples/affiliate/ad] Hate to be the ‘influence’ here but these new blushes from MAC are so good, I’m going to do nothing but rave. MAC Glow Play BlushThey are in a ‘bouncy’ texture which makes them soft and almost wet to the touch (if you wanted, you could press your finger into them, but don’t) but hold a powder shape. I love a creme blush any day of the week over a powder one but this is creme enough to fit the bill. MAC Glow Play BlushOn the cheeks, you get a diffused colour that blends really nicely – pigment is quite high so choose your colour carefully (I’d recommend Groovy at the end there for a suit-all, healthy looking, coral based flush) and use a similar (or same) brush as you use for powders. It will pick up no problem at all and allow you to build well. MA...

Manicures – How They Are Now

[unpaid/giftedexperience/affiliate/ad] As we all know, beauty services suffered enormously during the lock down – they still can’t offer a full complement of treatments – but happy to say that my trip for a manicure was just the best tonic and a chance to see how things are being done differently. I haven’t actually had a professional manicure for years – I like doing my own nails so never really bothered (although one of the things my daughter, Lucy, missed during lock down was her gel nails). However, a few months of new enthusiasm for gardening meant that some professional attention was needed. I went as a guest of Nails Inc to see how it all works under the new conditions. Just Avocado ItMy appointment was in Selfridges – I was surprised to see a queue outside but it turns out t...

20 Ways to Control Hunger Hormone Ghrelin to Lose Weight

People tend to blame their “insatiable appetite” for their weight gain and also for their inability to lose weight, but there’s a “culprit” you can tie this constant feeling of hunger to – it’s the hormone “ghrelin.” Human body needs nourishment to survive and this nourishment comes from the food we eat which gets converted to fuel that the body derives energy from to run its daily functions smoothly. The food we eat, right from the time it enters the mouth, goes through a systematic process of digestion which involves the brain, stomach, intestine, and the neurological system where signals are sent to the brain to tell when the stomach is empty and when it’s full. There are two hormones that basically run the show when it comes to appetite – leptin and ghrelin. Leptin is the satiety ...

Pee Safe Natural Intimate Wash Review Photos Price

Today’s review is about Pee Safe Natural Intimate Wash. Intimate washes fall under basic hygiene. Even if you are a makeup minimalist, you can’t really ignore this one item from your daily-use essentials. Good quality intimate washes are still scanty in Indian market. I always choose soap-free and mild intimate washes. I have been using Clean & Dry wash for a couple of years now. I got bored of using the same wash again and again. So, this time I bought Pee Safe Natural Intimate Wash. Pee Safe makes some really good toilet seat sanitizers and recently they came out with their ayurvedic intimate care ranges. This paraben and sulfate free intimate wash contains tea tree oil, witch hazel and lemongrass. Let’s read to know more about Pee Safe Natural Intimate W...

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash Review

I am sharing my experience with Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash today. Monsoon has already in its full in my place and this is the time my acne-prone skin starts to behave weirdly. The pimples pop out from nowhere and I am left with bumpy face now and then. This time I make the best out of foaming cleansers. I don’t like the dry tight feel of foam washes. I keep away from oil cleansing products as much as possible. I have always had good relationship with Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash. That’s the reason I decided to go for it’s near cousin, Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash. I have almost finished it off; just a little product is there in the bottle. I thought this is about time I share my likes and dislikes on this f...

The Best Botanicals for Your Hair and Skin

With the growing desire of wanting to know what exactly goes into the products we use – whether this is what we eat, drink, or apply on our bodies – conscious consumerism is on the rise. An article by The Goods by Vox posits that natural and clean beauty products are quickly becoming the preferred option because of this concern. Plant-based beauty in the form of products containing botanicals are always a sound choice as these have been used for thousands of years. Reverting to these traditional ingredients does not only push for natural personal care, but sustainability on a large scale as well. Here are some of the best botanicals for your hair and skin: Argan Oil Before there was shampoo as we know it today, our ancestors used botanicals for all sorts of ha...
