L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask ( Detox & Brighten) | Review

I have started taking a lot more care when it comes to my skin and I make sure I use face mask at least twice in a week.  I have so many masks and I keep changing and using according to how my skin feels. One of my most recent favorite face masks is from L’Oréal. This Pure Clay (Detox & Brighten )mask from L’Oréal reminds of the expensive Glam Glow Super Mud Clearing Treatment. I have used Glam Glow in the past and wanted to try this from L’Oréal and test how it works for me.

I love Clay masks as they really extract the impurities out. I have been using this mask for quite a while now and I totally love it. This can be used by any skin type. I have dry skin but my T-zone area tends to get oily and there is lot of blackheads on my nose. The texture is thick and its easy to application. Before using this mask, I cleanse my face thoroughly and take a quite steam on my face to loosen up my blackheads and open up my pores. I don’t suffer from large pores but there are very teeny tiny ones so I like to pamper my skin before it gets worst. After a quick steam on my face, I apply a thin layer of this mask and leave for about 10-15 minutes or until it gets dry. Once this mask dries you can literally the mask pulling out oil and impurities. It leaves tiny dots on the areas where is skin is affected. It looks gross but also satisfying that the mask actually works.  Once washed you can feel your skin looks so smooth and clean. It removes all the oil and little blackheads present around my nose. Apply a good moisturiser to your face after this as it may tend to dry up your skin.

This mask is a powerful blend of 3 clays, Kaolin + Montmorillonite + Moroccan Lava Clays with Charcoal.  This mask draws out all the built up impurities, dirt and pollution and makes skin looks even, fresh and clean. Skin is healthy looking and feels more beautiful. This mask comes in a glass jar which a sturdy lid and you can easily get 10-15 use from one jar depending on how you like to use. The packaging looks luxurious to me.

I absolutely love this Detox and brighten mask from L’Oréal and planning to get their other two mask range from this line. I highly recommend this mask to everyone as it really works and makes your skin look so beautiful and clean and it is also very affordable when compared to Glam Glow Mask.

Have you used this mask before? Which is your favorite Clay mask? Thanks for reading :)!

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask | Review

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Lately I have been taking good care of my skin and was also in hunt of trying new products.  My skin is on dry side and as winter is approaching and days are actually getting little chiller my skin tends to dry a lot more and leave rough patches. I read about Clinique Overnight mask which is a good hydration mask for all skin types so I picked this up in deluxe size before splurging on the big tube. I have never used an overnight mask before so I was hesitant to try this out but excited as well.

What it is:

A creamy, oil-free facial mask that helps skin drink deep overnight for a soft, dewy glow by morning.

What it is formulated to do:

This rich, penetrating night mask helps skin drink deep to replenish lost moisture, building reserves for tomorrow. Recommended for all skin types, it soothes and nourishes to help skin stay hydrated all night long, allowing you to wake up to soft, dewy, glowing skin.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

This isn’t a typical mask. The formula is so rich, thick, and creamy. The consistency is white creamy and the packaging says apply generously all over the face but little goes a long way. Just take a little bit of product and apply on your face. This doesn’t give any oil looking feel or greasiness. I would recommend applying 15 mins prior to your bedtime so that the mask sinks into your skin and doesn’t leave the residue on your pillow. I like to apply weekly thrice post cleansing my skin.

My skin has improved a lot and looks so hydrated and there are less of dry patches. It’s not completely gone but I know for sure its reducing and it’s because of this mask. This mask provides intense moisture and hydration to your skin. The next morning I get up with super glowy and plump looking skin. My face feels firm, glowy and smooth.  Another way I like to use this is after a clay mask. Clay Mask usually makes skin dry so instead of loading lots of moisturizer and I apply this and go to bed and next morning by skin looks super clean from clay mask and hydrated from Clinique Overnight Mask.

The packaging is simple and comes in tube form which is quite easy to use.  This mask worked wonder for me and being fragrance free makes it ideal for sensitive skin and I have never had any breakouts with this product.

I highly recommend this to everyone and I am sure you will not regret this buy.

Price: $34.50

Derma E Hydrating Day & Night Cream | Review

derma-e

Who is not concerned with it comes to your skin? Everyone wants a good moisturizer to start and end their day. Keeping your skin healthy and glowy is so important to achieve a perfect smooth canvas.  Derma E was very kind to send me their day and night cream to test out and I totally love the results.

Over the past week, I have been using this day and night cream religiously every single day. I have very dry skin and I always look out for creams which give hydration to skin and also nourishes. Derma E day cream does this job perfectly. Once I apply this moisturizer, the whole day I don’t experience any dryness on my face or around my nose area. It keeps my skin looking radiant and also I love using prior to my makeup as it gives a smooth base without any dryness. The texture of this day cream is whipped cream like and sinks into your skin easily giving you a clean, smooth and dewy looking skin.

Talking about this night cream, it’s a lightweight cream which moisturizes your skin amazingly well. The texture is same as day cream and instantly gets absorbed in the skin leaving your skin with silky finish and proper hydration. A little cream goes long way and the next morning you wake up with a radiant and plumpy looking skin. Night times are best to give your skin additional nourishment which gets lost during the day time and this cream does the perfect job. I love how my skin feels and looks the next morning. Isn’t always nice to see your skin glowy and looking healthy after you get up?? I love that feeling!!

These creams contain anti-ageing oxidants such as green tea, vitamin A and C, aloe vera which are extremely nourishing for skin and also soothes the skin. Talking about packaging, this come in glass tub which a tight lid. These are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, gluten free and GMO free. However these creams have a fragrance in them which is not so appealing to me but disappears soon after application

I have been using both these day and night cream for just over a week now and so far I am totally satisfied with the results. I am adding these in my daily skincare routine and see how my skin changes for better.

Minimal Fall Everyday Fall Look

img_3329

We are officially in Fall now and I love how days getting pleasant an nights colder. What I love about Fall is those Cosy clothes, boots, trench coats, dark lips, pumpkin lattes and much more.

So, I thought I would share my everyday Fall look with you all.

For Face:

I always like to reach out for the foundations which won’t disappoint me an one of them being MAC Studio Fix FLuid Foundation SPF 15. It’s my favorite foundation and I love the coverage and the formula. It makes my skin look flawless without looking cakey. For concealer, I like to use LA Girl Pro HD Concealer  as it gives me full coverage by hiding those dark circles. For blush I always reach out for ELF Blush Palette  as it looks so natural on my skin. I don’t like to contour everyday day so I totally skip it or just use a Rimmel Natural Bronzer to add some definition to my face. Lastly, for highlighter I like NYX Illuminator as it gives a natural glowy look and I build it up if I want an intense highlighter look.

For Eyes:

For my eyes, I like to keep it very simple by just doing winged eyeliner and currently I love using NYC Liquid Liner as its super affordable and matte jet black and add lots of mascara on upper and lower lashes and my all-time favorite mascara is Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

For Lips:

No doubt I totally love wearing dark lips and one of my favorite is Ofra Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘Mina’ which is nice dark burgundy shade and appropriate for this season. I love how smooth it glides and dries up matte without making my lips uncomfortable and also it’s long lasting and stays for good 5-6 hours.

What kind of look you like to spot during this season? Have you tried any of these products before? Thanks for reading!
