Algenist Reveal Luminizing Drops | Perfect for Every Skin Type

Recently during my Christmas shopping, I went to Sephora to stock up few gifts for family and friends and I came across this gorgeous luminizing drops from ALGENIST. At the very first sight I was intrigued as I have heard Algenist is a great brand skincare but I never heard any you tuber or bloggers I follow talk about it lot. The best thing about this luminizing drops is that it contains skincare properties too. What else good can come out of it right?!! I was immediately sold to buy this.

There are 3 different shades it comes in but I wanted to try different shades instead of purchasing one large bottle so I gave a shot to this duo which has two shades and so far I am totally in love with this. I am glad I purchased this and have been using non-stop every single day.

The shades are Champagne and Rose. Both are such beautiful shades. Champagne is beautiful golden shade while Rose is subtle feminine flush. These shades will look great on all skin tones.

The texture of these is thin, smooth but not watery at all. It blends seamlessly once applied. The coverage is medium to full coverage. It’s a subtle highlighter but you can definitely build it according to the intensity you like.  I just take a drop or two and apply on my cheek bones and bridge of my nose and it gives such a beautiful natural glow. This liquid highlighter is great when mixed with a foundation or BB/CC cream. It gives a natural dewy look and doesn’t make skin look dry or patchy. It blends into the skin seamlessly. Also I mix this with moisturizer to give a flawless glow when I don’t want to apply any other makeup and this makes my skin look so radiant. The drops can be used on your face, eyes, lips, chest, or any other area that you would like to highlight. They can be used alone or mixed in with your skincare or makeup. It doesn’t settle into my fine lines nor does it accentuate my pores. The finish is a sheeny, natural, lit-from-within glow, that subtle healthy radiance, as if you are in a perpetual state of bliss. The coverage lasts throughout the day, without the need to reapply. If you are looking for something in one go then you might not like this as it’s a subtle highlighter and you need to build it to get more pigmentation.

The packaging is pretty simple. It comes in a thick glass bottle with a dropper so it’s easy to use and since this duo is travel size it’s great to carry during travel.

I highly recommend these drops to everyone. This has taken top spot in my vanity now and if you are into liquid highlighter I suggest you try this one.

HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum | Review

I was super excited when I got to try the HAX serum from Revive serum as I have heard some great reviews of other products from my fellow bloggers. This serum claims to Plump | Hydrate | Protect | Blur | Moisturize | Destress | Rejuvenate. These are the main factors which we all look in a serum and believe me this serum does it all.

ABOUT THE KEY INGREDIENTS:

NEUROPHROLINE

Winner of the 2016 Gold Award for Best New Ingredient at in-Cosmetics Paris, the leading global business event for personal care ingredients. According to swiss Givaudan SA, its developer, this exclusive extract derived from the tephrosia purpurea plant has demonstrated its unique biological capabilities to:

▶ Be the first bioactive cosmetic ingredient able to block the production of cortisol, the major stress hormone.

▶ Promote the release of endorphins, natural calming neuropeptide acting on mood and promoting a sense of well-being and relaxation.

▶ Provide fast benefits in only 2 weeks, with a visible reduction of redness (up to 2.4x), a very fast recovery of skin luminosity (+57%), and improvement in global skin color (+99%) after only 28 days.

Environmental pollutants including cigarette smoke, ozone, exhaust fumes and heavy metals generate free radicals that induce oxidative damage and put skin cells in a state of stress. The active Neurophroline ingredient targets these sources and effects, and is shown to have clinical efficacy in reducing the appearance of premature aging caused by environmental pollution.

How to use:

Apply to cleansed face, neck, chest and hands twice daily, ideally while skin is still moist after cleansing. Alternatively, apply with moist fingertips to facilitate an instant plumping effect. Use it after any other treatment serums, and before applying makeup and/or sun protection. Decrease frequency or discontinue use if irritation develops.

My thoughts:

The texture of this serum is milky and thin consistency. I have been using this for nearly two weeks and I must say I’m super impressed with this product. I use this serum in my skincare routine day and night and also under my makeup as a primer and totally love. My skin feels completely different in a good way. Its gives a smooth and firm look to my skin. I couldn’t see much of plumping effect throughout my two week use but I definitely see a much good difference in overall appearance of the skin. It looks even and moisturized.  My skin feels rejuvenated and relaxed the next morning when I use at night.

Also it creates a wonderful base for makeup and works perfect as a primer. My foundation goes on smoothly and also one huge thing I noticed with this was my concealer never creases at all. I always get creases under eyes but when I use this as a primer my concealer never creases. I was really happy and super impressed the way it worked on my under eyes.

The best part is fragrance and scent free and comes in a pretty packaging which has a pump. This makes it quite easy and mess free to use the product.

I highly recommend this product for all skin types and it works perfect even for sensitive skin. It works great as a serum and as a primer.

Best Mask Ever- Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask

Don’t you want an affordable and effective face mask which does what it claims?? Well, I have found one of the best clay mask ever and I am in totally in love with it. I have tried many face mask and there are couple of masks which I love but nothing can beat this clay mask. I never tried clay mask before and I came across this mask and read some great reviews and was instantly sold.

I have dry sensitive skin with blackheads and little bit of pores on my cheek. I have tried so many products and methods to get rid of but they just won’t go. I got this mask in a hope that my blackheads and pores problem will reduce and guess what IT DID !!  Let me tell you that this is not a pamper mask when you can put on while munching some snacks, or start your day with before work or before any date night because you don’t want to look like a red panda!

Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask

This masks says world’s most powerful facial deep pore cleansing clay and I couldn’t agree more.  The jar says ‘ FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE’ and indeed it does gives an intense pulsating feeling and feels like the mask is pulling out the blackheads and the clogged pores. The pulsating feeling is super cool. It can be used as bodywraps, clay baths, foot soaks and on acne as well. The jar says mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and water. Stir the mixture to a smooth consistency. It has no fragrance and the texture is powdery, similar to cornflour.

Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask

 

Apple cider vinegar is used to balance the PH and never just use this clay with water as the mixture forms lumps. So highly suggest using apple cider vinegar. Never use metal bowls or spoons to mix this clay as it will break down the ions in the clay making it less effective and when ions are lost there is no pulling power. So use a non-metal bowl and a spoon for mixing this clay. Apply the mask and leave in on for 20 minutes. I can’t even move my lips or open my mouth when this is on my face. Wash it off with warm water. After washing I noticed some red spots on my face but then I was like wow! Blood circulation is really kicking in. The redness goes away in half hour or so hence nothing to be worried about. I then pamper my skin with a good serum and moisturizer.

I noticed my blackheads gone in just one use and my pores were less visible. I was totally amazed on how my skin looked. It felt like I had an expensive facial from a luxurious salon. My skin felt so smooth and hydrated. The blackheads were gone and getting rid of clogged pores. It just felt so good seeing my skin this way. I use this twice a week and the days when I feel my skin looks tiring and dull. It takes all the impurities out from your skin and gives a nice glow. This is the best mask I ever came across and it’s so affordable and this jar will last you forever.

I am definitely gonna use this mask for a very long time and this is the best mask I ever used. I highly recommend everyone to try this out as it’s suitable for all skin types.

Valentia Night Serum Retinol | Review

Valentia Retinol Serum

I was super excited when Valentia asked me to try their night serum as I have heard lot of good stuff about their night moisturizer.  I have been testing this product religiously every night for more than a week and I am totally impressed with it.

This Night Revive Serum contains Retinol aka Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Squalane. The blend of all natural ingredients in this serum is so pleasing and this is what helps in helping your skin to improve and keep nourished. Retinol helps in improving the wrinkles and preventing them from forming and also helps to get rid of acne and evens out skin discoloration. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that helps prevent premature ageing and giving more younger looking skin. Vitamin E is something I always look for in products as they help in getting rid of dry skin and gives hydration to your skin making it look smooth and soft canvas.

Honestly, I have been trying for weeks and initially I loved the way my skin feels and looks the next morning. It gives a nice plump effect and tighten your skin. I could really see the tightening of my skin within couple of nights using this and I was totally amazed by this. The texture is very lightweight and thin consistency. It gets easily absorbed to your skin within application. It doesn’t leave any oily or greasy effect.  Just take a small pea size amount and apply all over your face. A small amount does a good job and when applied in excess it might give a greasy look on your face but however it gets absorbed in your skin after sometime.

Valentia Night Retinol Serum Review

However, from day one I used I got a pimple on my face. As I kept using these for few days there were more and more zits appearing and I was convinced may be its because of this serum so I completely stopped using this. My pimples dint show up anymore. So again after couple of day I used this at night and the next day I see a new pimple appearing. I was totally convinced by now that its because of using this serum and I no longer use it and again there were no more pimple appearing. I was really upset has I really liked the way my skin tightened up using this but can’t use anymore.  I really wish it could work for me.

If you have don’t have sensitive skin you should definitely considering buying this but otherwise just pass it. I would not recommend to acne prone or sensitive skin people.

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!
