If I were asked to give up all the skincare ingredients in the world and only keep one, I would choose Vitamin C without a fraction of doubt. Vitamin C is what truly trasnformed my skin by fading the acne marks from my teenage years, and whenever my skin goes through a bad phase these days, I amp up the Vitamin C and my skin goes back to its healthy state within a few weeks. Needless to say, I am always excited to try a new Vitamin C product, and the one that has been on my vanity since a month is the Myoho Pure By Priyanka Vitamin C Serum. Read on to find out how I use this product and how it has fared for me so far.
As you approach your thirties, you may begin to notice patches of dullness or pigmentation on your skin. This is primarily due to a reduced supply of oxygen to the skin cells due to aging. Hence, you will need to invest in skincare products that provide a boost of oxygen to your skin, eliminating these signs of aging. The Kaya Youth Oxy-Infusion Skincare Range claims to do just that, and promises glowing, youthful skin with the regular use of their products. The brand was kind enough to send me a few of their cleansing products to try, so here is my review of the Kaya Youth Oxy Infusion Face Wash, Micellar Water and Face Wipes.
Hey everyone! I usually talk about cosmetics and topical skincare on this blog, but today’s post is going to be all about an oral supplement that can help with brightening the skin and evening out pigmentation. The star ingredient of this supplement is Glutathione, which is a naturally occurring anti-oxidant that helps ensure optimal health and cellular replenishment in the human body. I have done some research on the skincare benefits of the oral consumption of Glutathione, and here are my thoughts on how this ingredient can transform your skin.
To me, purity is transparency, and this philosophy is resonated by the Shesha Naturals Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, quite literally. Shesha Naturals is a strictly natural Indian brand with a range of skincare and haircare products that are 100% natural, cruelty-free, and free from parabens, silicones, petroleum derivatives, artificial colour and artificial fragrances. The brand was kind enough to send me a few of their products to try, and today I will talking about their Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
I have stopped using most physical exfoliators but my skin does love a good coffee scrub from time to time. And if you tell me that there exists a coffee scrub with chocolate in it as well then I can’t help but slather it all over my face! This is exactly why I had to try out the MCaffeine Choco Caffeine Exfoliating Face Scrub, which also contains argan oil and claims to be suitable for dry skin. Read on to find out whether this product lives up to its claims or not.
Yet another Multani Mitti face pack, I thought, when I received the St. D’Vence Multani Lotion in a subscription box recently. However, the moment I tried it, I knew that this face pack was different from any other multani mitti face pack I have tried in the past. Read on to find out why this product should be a part of your summer skincare routine.
There are some products that come in your life and completely change your skincare game. As far-fetched as it may sound, it seems like I may not turn back to micellar waters anytime soon, thanks to an amazing cleansing balm I have discovered. The product I am going to review today is the Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm, a cult level cleansing balm that many bloggers I trust swear by. I was finding it hard to get my hands on this product without spending a massive amount on shipping, but finally bought it during a sale from StyleKorean.com. Here are my thoughts on this product after using it for a couple of weeks.
Be it summer or winter, my skin always needs its drink of vitamin C to emanate that healthy glow. Vitamin C not only adds radiance to the skin but also helps fade pigmentation, which is much needed by someone like me with blemish prone skin. Over the past month, I have been using the Vaunt Vitamin C Water as a part of my PM skincare routine and here is what I think of the product!

Guest Post by Sohini
I’m Sohini, a budding blogger, youtuber as well as an influencer. I’m into this thing since last year and Mrinalini is one of the first few bloggers whom I followed on WordPress as well as on Instagram and writing for LipstickforLunch is a great opportunity for me.
So for my first guest post for this blog, I would like to share my experience with a new and innovative product I recently used- the generic version of the original makeup eraser. I got this from the brand Stay Quirky. It’s called their Wipe Out Makeup Remover.
A few days back I reviewed the DearPacker Home Remedy Masks and I couldn’t stop raving about them. Today, I will be reviewing another variant from the brand, the DearPacker Lab Collection Masks. Read on to find out whether these sheet masks managed to impress me or not!
The DearPacker Lab Collection Masks are available in 3 different formulations on Nykaa.com – Anti-Pollution & Clearing, Anti-Aging & Firming, and Anti-Dry & Hydrating. I picked up the Anti-Pollution & Clearing and the Anti-Dry & Hydrating variants. Unlike the home remedy masks from the brand, the Lab Collection masks have a more “professional-looking” packaging. The sheets themselves are more opaque and are made of cotton as opposed to the home remedy sheet masks that look more translucent and feel more jelly-like. The lab collection sheet masks are also bigger in size, and so I had to fiddle around a bit with them to make them fit my tiny face.
As for the formulations, these masks did not feel as hydrating on my skin as the home remedy masks and they tend to dry up faster as well and lose their squishy feel within 10 minutes. They do make the skin look brighter and hydrated but they do not have that wow-factor which the home remedy masks have, at least not on my skin. In fact, I noticed a few bumps on my skin the day after using the Anti-Pollution & Clearing Mask, although I cannot be hundred percent sure that the mask caused this or whether it was a good thing (toxins coming to the surface) or a bad thing.
Overall, I would say that if you are looking for good sheet masks then it might be a better idea to go for the DearPacker Home Remedy Masks instead of the Lab Collection Masks. The Home Remedy masks are available at the same price (INR 100 per mask) and they come in a number of variants, so you will be able to pick up something that will be perfect for your skin type. I am definitely going to stock up on the Home Remedy Masks but won’t be repurchasing the Lab Collection Masks.
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.
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!
