DearPacker Home Remedy Masks | Review

For the first time in my life, I have found a sheet mask that fits my face perfectly, one that I do not have to fiddle around with while application and that stays put on my face even if I walk or prance around. I am talking about the DearPacker Home Remedy Masks which are exclusively available on Nykaa.com. I recently picked up a bunch of sheet masks from the DearPacker Home Remedy and Lab Collection ranges, and here is what I think about their home remedy masks.

DearPacker Home Remedy Masks | Review

The DearPacker Home Remedy Masks are sheet masks enriched with ingredients that are commonly used in home skincare remedies, such as yogurt, chickpea, turmeric, cucumber, and honey. Each of these sheet masks is formulated specifically for different skincare needs such as soothing, brightening and clarifying the skin. They come in cute and colourful packaging that I love, and the mask comes soaked in a thick serum that does not spill everywhere when you open the pack, and is less messy compared to other sheet masks.

At the time of writing this blog post, I have only tried the Fenugreek and Cucumber Sheet Mask, and this product truly wowed me. This sheet mask provides a cooling sensation to the face and calms down the skin and any angry breakouts. It feels extremely hydrating on the skin when the mask is on the face, and when I remove the mask after 15 minutes, I am greeted by extremely bright skin, which is at least visibly thrice as bright than before using the mask. The serum that is left behind on the skin can be patted in easily and leaves the skin feeling extremely hydrated without feeling clogged.

Overall, I am super impressed with these sheet masks and will be posting mini-reviews of each of these variants here or on my Instagram profile. They are priced at INR 100 each and if you buy them in bulk then you can avail great offers on Nykaa.com. If you are wanting to add a boost of radiance to your skin right before a special occasion, then picking up a couple of these sheet masks is an absolute must for you!

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel | Review

Water-based gels are the perfect last step of a skincare regimen, especially for those with oily skin. These gels help to seal in all the moisture from other skincare products and also make the skin hydrated and plump due to the presence of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. One such water gel that has gained a lot of praise around the globe is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. I recently picked up this product from Nykaa.com, and here is what I think about it.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel | Review

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel comes in a beautiful blue plastic jar which is very sturdy. It has an additional plastic cap under the lid to prevent any leakage of the product, which makes it slightly more travel-friendly. I personally love the soothing blue colour of the packaging because even by looking at the jar, you will feel that this product provides tons of hydration.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel | Review

The product itself is a translucent blue gel that spreads on the skin with extreme ease. It looks slightly shiny (wet) on the skin right after application but within a few seconds, the shine vanishes completely. It leaves the skin looking hydrated and plump without making it greasy. It feels extremely light-weight on the skin, and makes the skin feel soft and youthful for several hours. I am not sure about the 48-hour claim but I do wake up to plump and moisturised skin when I apply this product at night. The ingredient list does not contain the most natural ingredients, but it does contain hyaluronic acid, which is known to provide extreme hydration.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel | Review

Overall, this gel is perfect for those with oily but dehydrated, acne-prone skin because it adds moisture without making the skin greasy or clogging the pores. The price of INR 849 for a 50g jar is decent, considering that you need the tiniest amount of product every day. If you are tired of super dehydrated skin then this is the drink that your face needs!

Roots Ceramic Barrel Hair Brush | Review

Don’t we all love that freshly blow-dried hair look right after we step out of a salon? I’m sure that most of you have also struggled with replicating that shiny hairdo at home. Today I will be talking about a hair tool that will give you an almost perfect salon-like blow-dried hairdo at home. I am referring to the Roots Ceramic Barrel Hair Brush, something that has salvaged my frizzy hair over the past few weeks.

IMG_8607.JPG

Roots is a brand that I trust blindly for hair brushes of all kinds, and this ceramic hair brush was no exception. The brand offers ceramic hair brushes in different barrel sizes ranging from 25mm to 58mm and I chose the largest barrel size because I was looking for more natural bouncy waves as opposed to tighter ones. This brush is extremely sturdy and quite heavy too, but the long handle makes it extremely easy to use. All you have to do is wrap your hair around the barrel and then blow dry them while moving the brush downwards, unraveling the wound up hair from the roots to the tips, just like they do at the salon.

While this technique of blow drying may sound quite complex, the design of this hair brush makes it fairly easy to maneuver the hair, because it has tiny bristles that help to separate the strands without causing any entanglement. These bristles ensure that you don’t end up with knotty hair while blow drying which will happen if you use a regular round brush instead of a ceramic one. Also, this brush gets heated up under the blow dryer, thereby helping the hair hold their shape.

IMG_20181106_153923257.jpg
Day 1 Hair

As of now, I am able to straighten my hair using this brush and am also able to create gentle waves at the ends. Of course, the hairstyles created using this brush won’t last as long as those created using a straightener or a curling wand because those tools work at a higher heat. However, this brush helps you style your hair in a jiffy and provides a sleek shiny look to them as well. It has worked really well at taming my frizz and at providing some much-needed shine to my mane.

IMG_8554.JPG
Day 2 Hair

Available at a fraction of the price of other styling tools, this brush priced at INR 495 is a must-have if you blow dry your hair and are willing to spend a few extra minutes at it to get a more polished hairdo. This is definitely one of the best purchases I have made this year!

Nykaa So Matte Mini Lipsticks | Review and Swatches

Lipstick minis are the flavour of the season, with all brands, both high-end and drugstore ones, coming out with miniature versions of their most loved lip shades. I am definitely rejoicing at this because this way I get to try out a wider variety of shades without burning a hole in my pocket, and also without the guilt of not being able to use up my lipsticks before they cross the expiry date. I was particularly pleased about the launch of the Nykaa So Matte Mini Lipsticks because this is one of my favourite creamy matte lipstick formulas. These cute mini lipsticks contain 1.5 gm of product and are currently available in 10 of the shades from the So Matte range. I have already reviewed the formula of these lipsticks in previous blog posts, so today I will only be talking about the 4 shades that I picked up, which are Scarlet Siren, Devious Pink, Bare Minimum, and Cinnamon Crunch.

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches

Starting with the lightest shade, Cinnamon Crunch (50M) is a warm light brown shade that will be a perfect nude for extremely fair people. Since I have a wheatish complexion, this shade washes me out and also does not apply very evenly and opaquely on my pigmented lips. I have to mix this shade with a deeper peach or pink to make it work for my skin tone, but if you are fairer than me then this might look great on its own.

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches Cinnamon Crunch

The second shade Bare Minimum (47M) is a beautiful peachy nude that looks slightly pink under certain lighting. This colour is a nice nude for my skin tone and will work well for all those with light to medium skin tones. It provides opaque pigmentation in one swipe and lasts for at least 4-5 hours on my lips.

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches Bare Minimum

Coming to my favourite shade out of the 4, Devious Pink (03) is a beautiful pink that will suit almost all Indian skin tones. It will be a nice deep pink for those with light skin tones and slightly brighter than a nude pink for those with a medium complexion. The pigmentation of this shade is completely opaque and perfect for those with pigmented lips.

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches Devious Pink

Last but not the least, Scarlet Siren (29M) is a stunning orange-toned red that will suit fair to medium skin tones. This is a very bright red as opposed to more mature looking berry-toned reds and maroons. It can also work as a nice deep orange for those with deeper skin tones. It is quite easy to apply compared to some of the other red lipsticks that I own and has definitely become my go-to red at the moment.

Nykaa So Matte Minis | Review and Swatches Scarlet Siren

Overall, I am super happy with this entire range of mini lipsticks and will highly encourage you to pick up at least a couple of shades from the range. You can’t really go wrong with these, considering that they are priced at INR 199 only. If you are a lipstick lover on a budget then these minis will soon become your best friends!

Kanai Organics Nail Paint | Review and Swatches

Have you ever sat and counted the number of objects your fingertips touch in a day? Not only do your fingers touch your food, face and clothes, if you have a baby in the house then your fingers touch your baby too. This is why a non-toxic nail paint is the need of the hour, and Kanai Organics has fulfilled this with their range of “8 Free” Nail Paints. These nail paints do not contain the most common toxic elements present in most nail polish formulas, namely Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Xylene, DBP, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, and TPHP.

Kanai Organics Nail Paint | Review and Swatches

Before I get into reviewing the colours and the formula, here is a word about toxic nail paints by the brand itself-

“Studies have shown that the body can absorb traces of chemicals applied on nails, with ingredients like Formaldehyde (used as a nail hardener) being a proven carcinogen. Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP) is known to be a hormone disruptor (on prolonged exposure) while dibutyl phthalate (DBP) has been linked to reproductive abnormalities. At Kanai, we remain committed to the ‘detoxification’ of products and are proud to say that none of our nail paints are made with this toxic trio and are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Now available in India and soon to be launched globally, you can now enjoy your favourite colour varnish without worrying about its effects on your health.”

Kanai Organics Nail Paint | Review and Swatches
Fuchsia

The Kanai Organics Nail Paints come in a range of 6 shades – Bubblegum (A bright pink), Fuchsia (A Neon Fuchsia), White (No explanation needed :P), Kanai Blue (Blue like the brand’s logo), Pienk (A pretty floral pink), and Camellia (A baby pink). These nail paints come in 11ml bottles with a thick brush that covers the entire nail in a couple of strokes. They are priced at INR 450 each, which is undoubtedly on the expensive side, but the formula somehow justifies the price for me.

Not only are these nail paints non-toxic, they also have a very quick-drying formula which dries up completely within a minute or two and the pigmentation provides an opaque semi-matte finish in 2-3 coats. They last for a good 5 days on the nails with minimal chipping and can be removed effortlessly without any stain left behind on the nails. They also do not have the strong chemical scent that many nail polishes possess. All the shades are beautiful feminine colours that are true to how they look in the bottle, but the pastel shades are my personal favourites from the range as they add a muted pop to the fingertips.

Kanai Organics Nail Paint | Review and Swatches
Camellia

Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this range of nail paints and hope that they bring out more shades in the future. The price is a little steep, but if you want something truly non-toxic and safe for your skin then Kanai Organics is a brand that you can blindly trust. You must try at least one shade from the brand, I am sure you will fall in love!

Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum | Review

A good serum can truly salvage your skin and resolve the most stubborn skin issues. This is because serums contain high concentrations of potent skincare ingredients and truly penetrate into the skin with their liquidy consistency. I have recently discovered a serum that I absolutely adore for my oily to combination acne-prone skin. This product is the Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum. Read on to find out why this skincare gem has stolen my heart!

Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum | Review

What pulled me towards the Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum was the fascinating list of ingredients. This serum contains rosehip extracts, an ingredient that always helps with brightening my skin and reducing pigmentation, vitamin-e, a well-known anti-oxidant, and green tea extracts, that help with soothing acne-prone skin. The formula truly contains all the ingredients that my skin needs to look its best. What I also love about this product is the fact that the formula is extremely light-weight, it literally looks and feels like water on the skin and sinks into the skin within seconds, leaving it hydrated but not at all greasy. I feel that those with oily skin can use this product on its own to provide some shine-free nourishment to their face and those with dry skin can add a layer of moisturiser on top of this product to get extra hydration.

Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum | Review

My skin is absolutely loving this serum and it literally feels baby smooth and soft every time I apply this product. The only complaint I have is that the formula smells a little funky, but the scent disappears within a few minutes of application so I do not mind this so much. Also, the packaging is super sturdy and travel-friendly. One issue that I sometimes face is that the pump is a little hard to press, causing the product to squirt out, but if you are a little careful you will be fine.

Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum | Review

Overall, I am absolutely in love with the formula of this product and couldn’t recommend it enough to people of all skin types. The price of INR 1500 for 50ml of product may seem a little steep, but serums are usually expensive because they have a high concentration of potent ingredients. Also, you will need the tiniest bit of product every day so one bottle will last you a really long time, making the product totally worth it. Just take my word for it and splurge a little on this gem, I am sure you will not regret it 🙂

Fabeya Bamboo Charcoal Sea Algae Peel Off Mask | Review

If you have ever used a black peel off mask, you would know that they all have a strong chemical scent and they often tend to dry up in the tube, leading to wastage of your money. Fabeya has now got you covered on both fronts with their Bamboo Charcoal Sea Algae Peel Off Mask that comes in the form of a powder! Read on to find out more about this unique product.

IMG_8485.JPG

The most unique thing about this product is of course the fact that it is a peel off mask in the form of a powder. You simply have to mix this light grey, finely milled powder with some regular water or rose water to form a thick paste. A 3-4 mm layer of this paste needs to be applied on the skin and peeled off after it has become completely dry, after 20 minutes or so. You may need to experiment a little with the thickness of the layer that you apply on your skin because if it is too thin it will crack and if it is too thick it will take a long time to dry. However, once you have the thickness right, the product will peel off pretty easily and will remove white heads and dead skin quite effectively.

IMG_8490.JPG

Another great thing about this product is that it is PVA free and does not dry out the skin or leave it feeling red and sensitive. While most black peel off masks in the market leave the skin fairly dehydrated and sensitive, this one actually hydrates the skin while removing only dead cells and white heads. There is a lot of controversy surrounding cream based peel off masks, with many people claiming that they actually contain glue in them. Not only can you trust Fabeya for their all-natural formulations (this one contains detoxifying bamboo charcoal and hydrating sea algae), even while using the product you will feel that it is made from pure and natural, non-toxic ingredients.

IMG_8494.JPG

Priced at INR 399 for a 30gm pack, this affordable product will give you several uses. If you have used a black peel off mask in the past and have found it extremely harsh or stripping then this product might convert you into a peel-off mask lover. Do try it out once, I am sure you will love it!

Fabeya Dead Sea Mud Mask | Review

Minerals from the Dead Sea are famous for their skincare properties which help in removing dead skin and dullness. Now this goodness is available in a jar in the form of the Fabeya Dead Sea Mud Mask. This face mask is also unique because it is PVA free, and therefore it claims to be non-drying. Read on to find out whether this face mask managed to impress me or not!

Fabeya Dead Sea Mud Mask | Review

The Fabeya Dead Sea Mud Mask has a creamy, muddy consistency and spreads easily on the face. It has a strong scent that tends to irritate the eyes and lips a little, but the brand has already instructed that the product should not be used near the eye or lip area, so all is good. Once applied on the face it provides a cool, slightly tingly sensation to the skin and takes approximately 15-20 minutes to dry up completely. The brand also recommends washing this product off with warm water, which is something that you should keep in mind because it does not wash off easily with cold water.

Coming to the results, this mud mask provides an even, natural radiance to the face and my skin looked visibly plumper and supple after just one use. The product contains Organic Soy Phytosterol which is known to combat wrinkles, and I feel that this is the ingredient that helps in plumping up the skin. Also, when the product dries up on the skin it does not feel any different than other masks, but once you wash it off, there is no stretchy feeling on the skin, unlike most of the other masks that I have tried. This makes this mud mask perfect for those with dry skin.

Fabeya Dead Sea Mud Mask | Review

This mud mask is available in a 140gm jar priced at INR 499. This is fairly reasonable considering the quality, quantity and efficacy of the product. With regular use once or twice a week, this product will reduce wrinkles and increase the radiance of the skin. Do try it out this Diwali to get the festive glow!

WiseShe Eyeshadow Brushes | Review

After being thoroughly impressed with the WiseShe Contour and Powder Brush I finally picked up all the eyeshadow brushes from the brand as well. It is wonderful to see that an Indian brand, that too one started by a fellow blogger, has come up with brushes that are comparable in terms of quality to international brands. The makeup game in India is definitely changing for the better! Anyway, here is my detailed review of the WiseShe Eyeshadow Brushes after using them to create several eyeshadow looks.

WiseShe Eyeshadow Brushes | Review

The WiseShe Eyeshadow Brushes come in two different sets – a pair of crease blending brushes and a pair of flat eyeshadow brushes. Both the sets come in sturdy black cardboard boxes with foam padding inside. The brushes also have long black handles that provide a good grip for applying and blending eyeshadow precisely and effortlessly. All the brushes have densely packed bristles that pick up enough product to provide decent pigmentation in one go, and the bristles are soft enough to blend the products beautifully.

The crease brushes have rounded ends, and the bristles are slightly stiffer, which is perfect for getting deeper pigmentation in the crease and for creating precise cut crease looks. The flat brushes, on the other hand, are slightly softer, for a more blended look all over the lids. These flat brushes will also be perfect for creating halo looks. The Crease Brushes are currently available on Amazon for INR 650, and the Flat Brushes are available for INR 550. So for INR 1200, you can purchase all the brushes that you will need to create any eyeshadow look.

WiseShe Eyeshadow Brushes | Review

Overall, I am fully impressed with these eyeshadow brushes, just as much as I was with the contour brush. These brushes can be used for creating both simple and intricate eye makeup looks. Also, the quality is excellent and I am sure that these brushes will last me for several years. If you are in the market for some eyeshadow brushes then do grab these while they are still on discount on Amazon.

The Battle of the BB Creams/CC Creams | Ponds vs Lakme vs The Body Shop vs Nykaa

BB creams and CC creams are a great alternative to full-blown foundations for those who are looking for a more natural finish with their makeup or who don’t want to burn too big a hole in their pockets. They are also excellent for the days when you want to be ready in a jiffy because since they provide a more natural coverage, they blend pretty easily and quickly. They are fast becoming a favourite of teenage girls who have just started using makeup and even those who are pro at blending have at least one for the “no makeup-makeup days”. While in the east BB creams and CC creams come with a ton of skincare benefits, the variants in India are pretty much tinted moisturisers with some SPF or essential oils. Here are the details of the BB/CC creams I have used till date and how they fared for me!

The Battle of the BB Creams/CC Creams | Ponds vs Lakme vs The Body Shop vs Nykaa

1. Ponds White Beauty BB Cream – This BB Cream is used and loved by a number of fellow bloggers, but I have a major issue with the words “Fairness Cream” printed on the packaging and the fact that this cream comes in only one shade. That being said, the reason why so many people swear by this cream is that if the shade matches your skin tone, the cream will provide an even brightened finish to your skin with almost medium coverage. The formula is a slightly thick, fairly pigmented cream that blends in quite easily with the skin. Also, the cream provides SPF 30, eliminating the need for sunscreen too. If only Ponds could stop using fairness as a marketing agenda and bring out more shades, this would be a decent product for an extremely affordable price of INR 165 for an 18gm tube. Click here to buy.

2. Lakme 9 to 5 CC Cream (Bronze) – The Lakme 9 to 5 CC Cream is the light-weight cousin of the Ponds BB Cream in terms of formula. It is slightly more watery, has a fresh citrusy scent and the shade Bronze is a slightly yellower version of the Ponds cream, but with slightly lighter coverage. It comes in 4 different shades (Bronze being the second lightest) that should cover most Indian skin tones considering that it does blend in quite seamlessly with the natural skin tone. If you want a CC cream that you can simply apply and forget about then this product is meant for you. It provides a more glowy finish than the Ponds cream that gives a more matte finish, so this one might not work for extremely oily skin types. A 30gm tube of this CC Cream is priced at INR 315. Click here to buy.

3. The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream (02) – If you are someone with acne prone skin who wants to treat their pimples while covering them up then The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream is your best bet. This BB cream provides light to medium coverage and has the cooling goodness of tea tree oil that actually helps in shrinking my active acne. This BB cream is truly the best of both worlds in terms of skincare and makeup for my skin type. My only issue with the product is that it has slight pink/greyish undertones which do not work the best with my warmer undertones, but I do use the product when my skin is acting up nevertheless (I am a shade 02 in the range). Priced at approximately INR 1200 in India, this one is the most expensive for sure and is best reserved for the days when your skin is really acting up. Click here to buy.

4. Nykaa Skin Genius BB Cream (04 – Spiced Cinnamon) – Last on this list is the Nykaa Skin Genius BB Cream. This one also has a good formula that provides medium coverage and a smooth finish to the skin, but it oxidises like crazy and turns orange on my skin, as you can see in the swatch. If you are able to find a suitable shade in this range (currently available in 5 shades) then it is a good BB cream that keeps the skin hydrated without making it greasy. The price of INR 349 for a 30gm tube is affordable too. Click here to buy.

The Battle of the BB Creams/CC Creams | Ponds vs Lakme vs The Body Shop vs Nykaa

Overall, while each of these products has their own pros and cons, my personal favourite is the Lakme 9 to 5 CC Cream because of its light-weight formula, my skin but better coverage, and yellow brightening undertones. It lasts for 4-6 hours on the skin and is excellent for wearing to college or office if you just want to even out your skintone a bit or hide small spots.

Have you tried any of these BB/CC Creams? Which one is your fave? Let me know in the comments below!

The Pink Stuff – Miracle Cleaning Paste | Review

For the first time in the history of this blog, I am reviewing a cleaning product on Lipstick For Lunch. Yes, I know that many of you might not be interested in this at all, and no, this is not a sponsored post, but I do know that if you are someone who is struggling with Diwali cleaning at the moment then you will thank me for this. Today I am going to be talking about The Pink Stuff, which is indeed a Miracle Cleaning Paste. Famous YouTuber Louise Pentland brought my attention to this product, and here is why this jar of pink goodness will change your life!

The Pink Stuff - Miracle Cleaning Paste | Review

Even though this product looks like a face mask, The Pink Stuff is, in fact, an abrasive paste that can help remove tough stains in a jiffy. You can head over to their website for a detailed data sheet to figure out whether you can use it on a particular surface or not, but I have primarily used it on metal utensils and fittings, and this product truly removes everything from burnt stains on saucepans to rust marks on taps with minimal effort. You need to rub the tiniest amount of the product on the stain with a soft cloth and then wipe it clean within a few minutes to find the surface looking as bright as new!

Even though the claims sound too good to be true, trust me, I have removed the most stubborn of stains with this product and couldn’t believe my own eyes. The product doesn’t have a strong scent and it did not irritate my skin, but I will recommend you to go through the ingredient list to make sure that it is safe for you to use and also, do test it on a small patch of any surface you want to clean with this stuff because it is definitely potent.
