Kaya is a brand that I haven’t really explored much till now, but whatever few products I have tried from their range have never disappointed. I was recently sent the Kaya Brightening Night Cream, the Kaya Brightening Beads Cleanser and the Kaya Derma Naturals Insta-Brightening Sheet Mask as PR, and here is my review of these products. Kindly bear in mind that I am reviewing these products based on their efficacy at nourishing the skin and evening out my skin tone. Some of these products claim to “lighten the skin tone” as well, but I do not support skin lightening, I simply explored what the formula of these products does for my skin in terms of reducing pigmentation and adding a natural glow, and here is an honest account of the same.
PAC cosmetics recently launched their Take Cover Concealers which took the internet by a storm from the day of the launch. A lot of you requested me to review the concealer on Instagram, and I decided to go one step further to do a comparison of the PAC Cosmetics Take Cover Concealer vs the PAC Cosmetics Spotlight Ready Concealer, both of which I had never used before. I picked up the shade 08 Stark Nude from the Take Cover concealers and the shade 08 Barely Nude from the Spotlight Ready concealers, and here is my review with swatches and comparison of both the concealers.
With so many new skincare brands expanding their wings in India, very few products and ranges tend to truly excite me and spark my curiosity anymore. “Myoho” by Pure by Priyanka is one such skincare brand that stood out to me in terms of their unique formulations, aesthetically pleasing packaging as well as the brand’s ethos. The brand kindly sent me a bunch of their products to try out, and I have been loving everything I have tested so far. Here is a review of all the products from the brand that I am loving at the moment.
Winter in India is usually quite cruel on the skin and leaves it dry and flakey. Even though I have oily skin during the warmer months, it leans towards combination to dry during the peak of winter and becomes quite dull too. This is why I was thrilled to receive a package from Suganda Skincare which contained 3 products that will take extra care of a range of skin types during the harsh and cold weather. This kit contains the Suganda Centella Green Tea Face Wash, the Suganda Niacinamide Serum and the Suganda Rosehip Moisturizer and here are my thoughts on these products!
When we talk about vegan and cruelty-free skincare brands in India, Plum is a name that comes to most of our minds, and the Plum Green Tea range of skincare is particularly raved about by those with oily and acne-prone skin. I have already reviewed the Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash and the Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask on the blog, and today I will be talking about the Plum Green Tea Alcohol-free Toner and the Plum Green Tea Renewed Clarity Gel. Read on to find out how these products fared for my combination to oily, acne-prone skin.
It is that dreaded time of the year again when the weather is cold and dry and unforgiving on our skin. Who else detests winter with a passion just like I do? My flaky skin and “arid as a desert” elbows, hands and knees add to the gloominess and the lethargy that consumes me in the colder months. This time round, however, I am armed with a bunch of products to combat dryness, and the Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for elbows, hands and knees is the star of my skincare arsenal. This product was kindly sent to me by Organic Riot and Nykaa, and I can’t thank me enough for introducing me to this winter saviour. Read on to find out why I love this cream so much.

Benefit Cosmetics is known worldwide for its range of eyebrow products, and many have sung praises of their Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. I had always wanted to try out the brow products from this range but found them a little expensive for my budget. Recently the brand has launched mini versions of some of their cult products on Nykaa.com, which has made their products slightly more affordable and accessible for those on a budget. Nykaa and Benefit were kind enough to send me the mini of the Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil in the shade 5, and here are my thoughts on the product along with swatches.
Forest Essentials is a luxury skincare brand that a lot of people swear by, thanks to its pure and natural ingredients and effective formulations inspired by Ayurveda. Everything from the packaging to the quality of these products spell luxury, however, the price point makes it quite expensive for a lot of people. I have always been hesitant to try out the brand due to the price of the products, and was therefore thrilled to receive a few of the Forest Essentials skincare products as PR through Nykaa. I am happy to share my review of the Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser, Pure Rosewater Facial Toner, and Tejasvi Sheet Mask. Read on to find out my thoughts on these products in case you were planning to try these out.
Shesha Naturals is a home grown brand that has introduced a beautiful range of ayurvedic and natural skincare and haircare in the Indian market. I am already a fan of their shampoo, soap, and virgin coconut oil and was therefore thrilled to know of the launch of their new ayurvedic oils. The brand kindly sent me two of the newly launched oils – the Shesha Naturals Nalpamaradi Thailam and the Dhanwantaram Thailam to try out, and here is my review of these products for all of you.
If there is one brand that knows their matte bullet lipsticks, it has to be Spekta Cosmetics, which is why I was thrilled to know that the brand has recently launched 3 new shades in their matte range. The brand kindly sent me the three new shades – Divinity, Troublemaker and Cowgirl to review for you guys, so here I am with arm and lip swatches and my thoughts on these new lipsticks.
When skincare products are made with clean and pure ingredients, you can literally feel their purity on your skin. This is how my experience has been with the skincare products from Baniithanii, a homegrown skincare brand whose roots lie in the principles of Ayurveda. Each product is vegetarian and cruelty-free, is carefully formulated using natural ingredients and is devoid of any artificial fragrance or colours. The results truly speak for themselves, so without much ado, here is my review of the Baniithanii Bath and Body products.
With so many new liquid lipsticks dropping left, right and centre, it becomes a little hard to keep up with all the launches, and let’s be honest, not all of them are worth the buy either. However, I had been hearing a lot of rave reviews about the Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Colors, and since I have a soft spot for Lakme because it is the OG Indian makeup brand, I decided to give this liquid lipstick a shot. I picked up the shade Crushed Caramel from the range, and here are my review and swatches for all of you.
