Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello beauties,

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I know its been like ages that I have pen down something. I have been MIA from Snapchat, Instagram etc. Nevertheless, Life look much sorted now and things started looking up. I got a new job which I will be starting from Monday. I am pretty excited and nervous. I realised that a person should never sit idle. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop. I took a break from my work and I am resuming soon. Well, I want to share my beauty shopping experience from Jabong.com. Like I said, I am going to start with work soon so I thought let’s do a bit of shopping and get myself all worked up. I bought few formal shirts and blouses, got a few scarves. While I was looking for that perfect office wear lipstick, I reached Jabong. Its quite rare that we girls buy cosmetics from Jabong.com. We usually go to that beauty centric website to buy something because we think we’ll get a better discount there. I was eyeing the Lakme 9 to 5 Range collection for office wear shades.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I compared across all platforms and found Jabong selling the Lakme lipsticks at the cheapest price. I received this at a discounted price of Rs. 360 originally it is for Rs. 450. Quite a deal..Isn’t it? The 9 to 5 range is the best when you are looking for basic pinks, browns and mauves which are wearable and also feels comfortable on lips. I love the lakme 9 to 5 range for the light feel and longevity. I have loads of bright lipsticks and hardly any nude or browns. As usual, my order arrived within 3 days with proper bubble wrap packaging. The lipstick was housed in Jabong’s small cardboard orange box. That is something rare!

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So this is how the shade looks on me.. It gives me a feel of “My lips but better”. The shade Red chaos is nowhere near to Red like you can see. Don’t know what Lakme was thinking while naming the shades? But I am happy with the texture, shade and longevity.  Jabong is my online shopping destination for apparels but now I can trust the website for beauty buying too. I loved the endless discounts they have on major brands. If there is no sale one can always make use of Jabong coupons to buy the products pending in the wishlist. I do this often, I keep collecting things in my cart and as soon as there is any discounts or coupons available. I quickly go ahead and make the purchase. I have bought stuff like NIKE, PUMA, VERO MODA using the trick.  And now I do the same with L’Oreal, Make up Revolution etc. Do check out Jabong.com for the latest offers on clothes, beauty etc. I can’t share everything on blog so those of you who want to see my purchases. Follow me on snapchat: erica.eleganza.  I share my life on Snapchat which includes a lot of shopping of course 😛

Studiowest Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow M03 Goldmine Review & Swatches

Hello ladies,

Studiowest Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow M03 Goldmine Review & Swatches
Studiowest Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow M03 Goldmine Review & Swatches

The other day I went shopping to Westside exclusively to shop something from Studiowest. Bidisha from mermaidbidisha raved about this all the time and I couldn’t help but pick few of the stuff to try out this new brand. This brand is not available in all the Westside stores in Mumbai. I picked mine from Korum Mall, Thane. I visited Westside from Borivali and Infinity Mall, Malad. I couldn’t find the counters there. Incase you are planning to visit Westside make sure you first call them up. They do have bath and body products and perfume from Studiowest everywhere but not the beauty counter. By the way I am glad I picked up this brand. I picked up a lipstick from Pure Passion, 2 nailpolish, a blush from Maaya and this Crystal eyeshadow in Goldmine from Maaya again. Maaya is the premium brand from the range.

Product Description-

Studiowest Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow M03 Goldmine Review & Swatches

Combine 3 shades to experiment with your look! Using the applicator, apply the dark shade to line the eyelid. Next, blend in the medium shade along the crease & highlight under the eyebrow for a stunning result.

Price – Rs. 425 for 4.2gms

Packaging –

The packaging is simple nothing fancy. It looks just like a compact eyeshadow trio should look. The transparent lid makes it easy to see through the shades. It also comes with a black applicator which is good enough for application. However, you will definitely need your blending brush to blend the eyeshadows.

My Experience with StudioWest Maaya Cyrstal Eyeshadow Goldmine-

Honestly I am not someone who would pick eye shadows so randomly. But I loved the colour combination of this eyeshadow. It’s a mix of gold, cranberry and brown. It looks so festive. I tried it at the counter and boy it was so well pigmented. I had to pick it up plus it only cost Rs.425. There was just no reason to not pick it up. The textures of these eyeshades are satin soft. The fall outs were very less which really impressed me. It blends out seamlessly. I like the fact that these are so affordable yet has a remarkable quality. Westside have maintained the standards, this range can easily give tough competition to other drugstore brands. They are travel friendly and compact enough to just slip in your pouch. The colors are festive and trendy. The quantity is good enough for the price. Perfect for this shaadi season. It will match most of our heavy lehengas , saarees and anarkalis. You can even create a beautiful VALENTINE’S Day look with this. I love the cranberry shade in this trio. It is such a bridal shade. Overall, I am amazed with the range and looking forward to experiment more products from this brand. How I wish that they start selling online and easily accessible to us. The eyeshadows is definitely a 11/10 for me.

Pros-

  • Great pigmentation
  • Beautiful colors
  • Less fallout
  • Super Affordable
  • Blends easily
  • Satin texture

Cons-

  • Availability

Ratings- 5/5

My Recommendation- Go for Goldmine with your eyes closed. The colors are such that it will come handy on any occasion. A big thumbs up for the pigmentation and texture.

January 2016 Fab Bag Review

Hello Beauties,

JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

So after winning the December FAB BAG, I wanted to try the January FAB BAG. I cannot deny the fact that this cute little pouch of the January bag was the sole reason of the purchase. I was hoping to get the BBlunt Hair polish, Bellapierre Mineral lipstick or the Laqa nail polish pen. Sadly I didn’t receive any of these, so I am a little disappointed with my January Fab bag. Also I ordered on 11th January and received on 31st January, I always receive my Fab bag’s way too late. I don’t understand why? Why you no hurry up my Fab bag? One of the reasons why I am reviewing the January Bag in February? LOL.. Can’t help it! I was happy with my December Fab bag which included Sugar cosmetics Scarlett O’hara lipstick. Let’s see what’s in my January Bag?

JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
  • Votre Face Serum Full Size – Rs. 1670 for 12ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

I have heard a lot about this serum. On my face, serums work better than moisturiser. I like to apply it during night and get up with a brightened face. The fragrance of this is amazing more like roses. It claims to reduce fine lines and brighten the complexion. I am yet to try this out.

  • Natural Bath & Body Clay Mask – Rs. 450 for 100 ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

This clay mask claims to cleanse, detoxify and exfoliate the skin. I like such travel size product which makes it easy to carry in your pouch. Again the smell of this clay mask is fresh. I am eager to use this as I personally love clay mask.

  • Natural Whipped Cream – RS, 275 for 50ml
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

This whipped cream disappears in the skin. My skin is on the combination side, it keeps my skin well hydrated and tingling fresh. I guess it’s the lemony fragrance. Again a travel friendly product which is meant to nourish, soften and tone the skin.

  • Seasoul Dead Sea Minerals & Botanicals Massage Candle – Rs. 300 for 50ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

The product claims to relax, revive and rejuvenate our body. This is enriched with 100% pure dead sea minerals, vitamins A,B,C,E & F for soft supple skin. I like the unique concept of this massage candle. Once the candle melts down we need to use the leftout oil as massage oil. This can be use as a hydrating potion after a bath.

  • Fran Wilson Mood Matcher Lipstick Orange – Rs. 590
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

I got an option to pick a product at the end of the cart. I guess because they were running low on stock. Hence, I chose this mood matcher lipstick. On application, it looked transparent but after sometime it turned into hot pink tint. Quite interesting..Eh?  This is great to use on days when you don’t feel like applying lipstick.

I like the Fab bag concept of sending products every month that we do not reckon. And the products are definitely worth more than the price we pay. However, I feel that I usually get the bag late and that’s pretty annoying at times. I liked the VOTRE face serum but I am upset that they didn’t send me products that I was looking forward. Hoping that in future they come out with more interesting products so that I am tempted enough to purchase.

So did you also buy the January Fab bag? What products did you get?

My H(o)aul from Sephora, Studio West, Forever 21 and more!

Hello Sunshine,

HAUL

On this bright Sunday morning, I felt like doing a bit of activity. I have shopped like crazy in last month so I thought let me show you things that I bought and few of them are gifts which I got. By the way this is my first haul post on my blog. I am super shopaholic. These days the courier fella comes daily at my door. My mom has totally given up on me; she knows inspite of telling her so much she is still going to shop. I went bonkers in December and January. I tried to control so much but the deals were way too tempting and I promised myself once the sale gets over. I am going on a diet shopping. Also, Sephora opened their store in Mumbai, the one and only at Palladium Mall, Lower Parel. I won their launch contest and got VIP access to Sephora store and I was amongst the first 5 customer (including Kangana Ranawat) who was inside the store. I also received few goodies and got to get my hands on the products before the crazy crowd outside.  So lets go check what all I have….

HAUL

So I bought the Daily Smooth Soap and Glory Body Butter full size, the fragrance is awesome and keeps my skin hydrated for long. Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick in Mr. Lover R10 which I found a gorgeous shade and Sephora nourishing lip balm which is amazingggg! It keeps my super chapped lips soft and smooth. Love this! The goodies I received were the Benefit Dream Invisible Sunscreen and Thierry Mugler perfume in Alien. Yippie!!!

HAUL

Next I bought the Studio West Cosmetics from Westside. Bidisha from mermaidbidisha was too excited to try this range and suggested that I should check out this brand. So I went to Westside especially to get few of these. Let me tell you they are amazeballs. Especially the eyeshadow trio and lipstick from Pure passion. So I picked 2 nailpolish, 262 tropical crush and 560 Hot coral. Maaya Radiance Blush in M04-Bronze which I use as a bronzer because I wanted one and not a blush. I like this for contouring. Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow in M03- Goldmine. This is such a gorgeous trio, absolutely beautiful texture and superb pigmentation. Pure Passion lipstick in Hint of Brick which is a unique shade, lasting colour for the price.

HAUL

Then I went to Forever 21 and picked up these small cuties. The love & beauty beautyblender/make up sponge, another make up sponge and eyebrow razor (2pieces). The Real techniques brushes are from Amazon and they are soft as fur. It’s the sculpting brush and blush brush. Blush brush is big and fluffy which also makes it a great powder brush. Absolute love material!

HAUL

Here I have 20 make up wedges from QVS, Maybelline superstay lipstick in Non stop red (repurchased), Faces Ultimate Pro Lip crayon in Midnight Rose and Sugar Coated with sharpener. I also picked up a lip contour pencil from Faces, it’s the shade Coral Pink. I got the go chic lip gloss Caramefised free with the purchase. The Body Shop lip balm in Raspberry and Plum Kajal. Most of these are from Beauty Centre. Only the make up wedges is from Westside.

HAUL

Cetaphil daily advance ultra hydrating lotion is my saviour this winter. When everything failed on me, I picked this up and it really works on the drier parts of my face. I am combination skin but the dry areas are getting super dry in this season and this fixed it. Then I got this cute hand mirror from Beauty Centre in Silver. Quite Handy Eh!

HAUL

Last but not the least is the love I received from Michigan based Indian Youtuber Bidisha. She is like my bestie, I loved meeting her and Priyanka. When I met Bidisha I never felt I am meeting her for the first time. That’s because we keep Facetiming each other regularly. I love the fact how generous she has been with the gifts and she just knew what exactly I wanted. I never even had to tell her what I wanted. There is NYX Aria Lipstick, Milani lipstick in Nude Crème, Milani Blush in Berry amore, Fake eyelashes from Kiss, Covergirl SuperSizer Mascara, Glam Chick Make Up Kit, a floral hand bracelet, a cute lil’ pouch with a hand written note. Thank You Doll! <3

HAUL

HAUL

Thats It! I hope you all liked my HAUL! Let me know which one is your favourite? Also if you want me to review any product? I will be more than HAPPY to do so!

Lots of Love,

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello Divas,

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

With this EOSS sale, I went crazy shopping from everywhere. If you are following me on Snapchat (id – erica.eleganza) you will know how I shopped like there is No tomorrow. I have been doing Online shopping from the time I’ve become a beauty blogger. Online shopping + shifting to a new home have made me super lazy to go anywhere. And why go somewhere when you have such a huge variety online. So it happened this way that I crossed my limits on shopping and every day there is this new courier fella coming to my doorstep. My mom was super angry that I was spending so much. So I thought I’ll restrict myself. I was really eyeing this “PUMA” tee on Jabong.com which was on a major discount. I didn’t know what to do I just added it to my wishlist and kept coming to Jabong every day admiring it and going back.  I think the UNIVERSE heard me and Jabong guys offered me Jabong Coupons to shop with them and share the experience.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So along with the “Puma” tee I ordered As ORIGINAL track pants from American Swan because I thought the pair will rock as a Zumba Outfit. I received my order within 3 days. I don’t need to introduce Jabong.com I guess by now all of us know what is Jabong.com?  Jabong has always provided on time delivery and I swear by this website for shipping, quality and variety. I can tell you this because I have been shopping from this website from past 3years and it never failed me. I didn’t have a single bad experience with Jabong yet *touchwood* and I hope it continues.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

Honestly, if it wasn’t Jabong! I personally would have never gone to a PUMA store to purchase a tee from them. That’s because a store will never get me such a huge discount on their brand. I bought this using the Jabong coupons on discount for Rs. 649 and the actually MRP is Rs. 999.  The As Original trackpants too priced 1499 INR and I got them for 613 INR. I felt like I bagged a great deal. Everything came intact with the tags, nicely bubble wrapped and the products were all genuine.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

And this is my SNAPCHAT picture when I wore this to Zumba the other day. All my friends loved my outfit and asked where did I get my stuff from? The clothes were extremely comfy and it fit me to the T. Jabong.com is currently offering great discounts on Sports brands like NIKE, PUMA, REEBOK, ADIDAS etc. There is a sale upto 80% off with free shipping on most brands. Jabong is my go to website whenever it comes to shopping on brands. I am sure to find discounts here. Need I say more? My picture says it all.  So if you are still waiting for my final verdict. Yes, JABONG is my favourite shopping destination. Hands down!

Where to Shop Beautiful Formal Gown Dresses this Wedding Season? Beformal.com.au

Beformal.com.au

Hello gorgeousness,

I’ve been too busy with the wedding season lately. Always running out of clothes to wear, I have so less when it comes to ethnic and almost nil when it comes to gown and formal dresses. So the other day my bestie asked me where she can find Formal Dress Shops? As she is getting married soon, she wants one or two for a cocktail party and reception. Honestly, I didn’t know any place and I thought being a beauty & fashion blogger it would be a shame if I cannot help her out. C’mon she trusted me to advice her with a good place to shop. So I thought this will be a good opportunity to do a little homework plus it will be helpful for my marriage too. I searched a lot online for plus size formal dresses as she is plus size (No, I am not). It’s a task to find dresses for plus size. After a lot of research work and help from blogger friends, I came across this website called http://www.beformal.com.au/ This website was started in the year 2013 and serves across the world. They have got millions of products and customers who purchases from their range of Formal dresses Australia, wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, prom dresses etc.. You would now think that it is going to be expensive to purchase dresses online. I have compared the prices myself and they offer the best dresses in wholesale rate.

plus size formal dresses/gowns
plus size formal dresses/gowns

The best part is they have dresses for all age, size and occasion. I was shocked to see the plus size formal dresses Australia variety on this website. They have some breathtaking formal dresses and gowns. My friend was puzzled looking at their collection. It was difficult for her to pick just ‘one’. In India, its absolutely difficult to get good plus size formal dresses and gowns for a bride. Usually, the collection is too tacky, too tight or too old-fashioned. The good thing about getting a dress from this website is that they customise the dresses according to your size. Yippie! What a sigh of relief isn’t it? If you are a plus size woman and looking for formal dresses go follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/plus-size-formal-dresses-c113338/

Be Your Own Version of Beautiful!

We have noticed that many of us continuously look for ways to look better. No doubt, it’s important to pamper yourself and take great care of your skin. But have you ever noticed that most successful ones or the happiest people are not always the ones who have super glowing or flawless skin. Take a deep look. They don’t even have thick hair or great figure and yet they seem to enjoy life and live to the fullest. And you know what? That’s the only thing that matters.

If you feel that you are always under the insecure or negative blanket, you should definitely give few minutes of you time and read this. You never know, this may change your ways of perceiving life. Being beautiful is all about feeling beautiful. Sure, you can feel that you are beautiful, and you must but here are some daily tips that will add fuel to your self worth.

BE YOURSELF-  many of us sometimes feel that we are not the best so how can one be one’s own self? You need to stop comparing yourself with others. You must know that you are worth the best and that you have everything in you that the other person has. Do not go out to impress anyone as all such efforts prove to be futile and frustrating with time. We always want to be loved. Stop looking for it, rather give love to people. You will see a multitude of self confidence increasing in yourself as people will start valuing you. Everybody needs love, try to be a giver and accept yourself and embrace your very own qualities. You are you and you are not mean to be someone else.

 EDUCATE YOURSELF-  now we do not mean that you go to a college or get some expensive degrees. Education comes in all form. Spend your time reading or learning new things. Be so busy to make yourself in to a better person that you have no time to look out for any flaw in your physical appearance. You must have noticed that one of the most important persons in your life is not the one with the most beautiful skin, but with the most beautiful mind. Read blogs, magazines, books, news paper, cook or do anything to make yourself into a better person than what you were yesterday. Have a goal.

EXCERCISE- You need not join a gym, you need not invest money into buying expensive thing! All you need to do is take out some time to give your body what it deserves. Even if its 15 sit ups a day, do it. Walk for twenty minutes at least. You will notice a lot of changes in your looks.

YOUR HAIR-  yes it does matter. Not that significantly though but a little lower on the priority list. Get a good hair cut and keep yourself clean. Try to take a shower daily and inspire others.

Being beautiful is all about having that attitude!

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’Hara Review

Hello beauties,

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’Hara Review

It’s been a long time that I have posted anything. It’s because my life is getting way too eventful with this New Year. There are back to back events and meet-ups with friends and family. My near ones are getting married, met few of my closest blogger friends recently. It was lovely meeting Bidisha and Priyanka. We end up buying less things and more chit-chatting. I also received my FAB BAG which was the December edition. I won the FAB bag in Chicsterdiaries giveaway. It was an awesome feeling and completely unexpected. I was wholly and soully waiting for this product SUGAR MATTE AS HELL LIP CRAYON SCARLETT O’HARA. This one product made the whole December FAB Bag too tempting. I didn’t know which shade was coming to me. I simply prayed to God whatever will come will be the best for me. And I received Scarlett O’Hara which is a lovely true red.

Product Description

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’ Hara

If excellent coverage and high colour pay-off is what gets you going, you will absolutely love our new Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick that is available in 4 gorgeous shades to suit your taste & your ever-changing mood! Super long-lasting and highly pigmented so you don’t have to worry about constant re-application, this must-have crayon lipstick has a soft texture with a silky matte finish.

  • Feeling confident & sexy? Flaunt a classic red pout with the Scarlett O’ Hara shade – that’s guaranteed to make heads turn

Price – Rs. 799 for 2.8 gms and comes with a sharpener.

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’ HaraPackaging – It has a classic black and red packaging. The lipstick is in the form of crayon and also comes with a sharpener which is quite cool.  The shade name is engraved at the end of the crayon. The end of the crayon displays the color of the shade which is absolutely true to the shade.

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’ Hara

My Experience with Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’ Hara

To start with, I love the texture of the lipstick. Its not really matte as hell as it claims but soft on lips. However, we still need to exfoliate our lips before we try such lip crayons. The shade is true red which will suit every complexion and brighten any face. Its not a unique shade at all, since I am a red lipstick hoarder I found a dupe in my stash. L’Oreal Pure Reds Pure Scarleto is an exact dupe. So if you have any of these two you can skip the other. L’Oreal on the other hand is quite pricey so you can surely pick this one. I love how ‘pout perfect’ my lips look with this shade. The shade is an exact vintage red which looks great on bare face. The texture is soft on application and settles on matte. Stays upto 5hrs on me with eating and doesn’t go off without a makeup remover. They are truly pigmented and one or two swipes are more than enough to show up completely on lips. The lipcrayons do not transfer as much as other lipsticks do. They do not have any particular fragrance as such. It can settle in fine lines if we do not exfoliate. I would say pick up this shade incase you don’t have a proper red lipstick.  Otherwise, go for other shades like Poison IVY which is quite a unique shade.

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Scarlett O’ Hara

Pros

  • True red
  • Matte perfect
  • Classic packaging
  • Comes with sharpener
  • Long staying
  • Doesn’t transfer
  • Brightens the complexion
  • Soft on application
  • Looks pout perfect

Cons

  • A bit pricey
  • Can settle on fine lines if we don’t exfoliate

Rating– 4.5/5

Recommendation– This is a lovely true red shade. It’s not a must have shade incase you have lots of reds. But this is great for someone looking for that Vintage red.

How to Pamper Your Skin in Winters

All of us love winter. The lovely breeze and the cozy coffee make our hearts bloom. But with all these we sometimes forget to pamper our skin. Winter has the ability of taking moisture from your skin, making you look dull and lifeless. The question is; are you going to let this happen to you? If your answer is ‘’no’’, which we are quite sure that it is, we recommend you to spare two minutes and rehash things which you are already aware of!

Moisturising is a must for a beautiful skin. With regular practise, you will notice softer and more radiant and glowing skin. Of course the easy way is just dab the cream but a little more knowledge will go a long way. Take a look!

  1. COVERING YOUR FEET AND HANDS AT NIGHT- winter can really make your hands and feet look like those of crows! No offence but we all would agree to this in our deep conscious. Here is how you can combat it. Just apply loads of moisturising cream on your hands and feet. You can apply any cream which suits your skin. Biotique products are good. But if you find them expensive, you may try regular boro-plus. Take huge amount and massage. The trick to get the deep moisture is that you must cover your feet and palm. Wear socks and gloves. This ensures that the moisture sets deep in your pores. Do this daily. Within three to four days, you are bound to notice the difference. Your hands and feet will appear soft and glowy as feather.
  2. MORNING- winter morning is not only restricted to difficulty in getting up, it has the habit of leaving you feel dry. The knuckles, elbows, neck and lips are most affected. Do not worry. Just take the effort of applying your cream on these areas.
  3. POST BATH- so bathing does take away little moisture! Replace your regular soap with moisture laden body wash. After bathing, massage yourself with moisturising cream. You may also choose olive oil. This is extremely important if you are targeting healthy glowing and soft skin. Olive oil can be used on lips as well. It will make it pink naturally with regular usage. Another thing which you must keep in mind is that you must keep your hair dandruff free. If your hair has dandruff, take all the steps to get it removed. It may have severe effect on your skin. A healthy scalp is a prerequisite for a healthy soft skin. Wash your hair at least thrice weekly.
  4. CARRY YOUR MOISTURISING LOTION WITH YOU- so if you are a student or an office goer, you are very much aware that that anything applied in the morning doesn’t last for long. Carry your small handy bottle of cream and apply it after 4-5 hours of first usage. Remember, good skin is never difficult to achieve. Many of us never get it only because we are never persistent in our effort. Love yourself and love your skin. Give it what it deserves.

 

YOU WERE BORN TO SHINE! 🙂

GET GLOWING SKIN WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT

We all want that perfect skin and flawless complexion. No matter how confident we are, a little pampering always goes a long way in boosting your self esteem. Of course nobody says that confidence is confined to appearance but why not make the use of these inexpensive things and restore that glow you were born with?

You were born with beautiful skin. You were born with those glowing cheeks. Why let pollution and stress take away your deserved charm?

It is never difficult to get glowing skin. The only thing which is required is persistence. Trust us on this part, this is the only thing why many people are victim of bad skin. So take little time out and try these easy tips.

LEMON – now surely this is something you have known since ages. But sometimes you need a little reminder that yes you can do it.

Simply rub lemon juice on your face and neck and leave it on for 10 minutes. A lot of people are sensitive to lemon. You can add little warm water to the juice just to dilute it. This will cut the burning effect, if at all you feel. Wash your face  after 10 minutes with warm water. Try this method for 3-4 times a week.

You can also add honey to the lemon and apply it on your face. Keep this pack on for 20 minutes and wash it with luke warm water. A regular practise will not only leave you with glowing skin, it will also help remove dead cells.

TURMERIC- turmeric has been known as a magical beauty thing since ages. Well, our ancestors were never wrong when they applied turmeric on the brides. You are aware of the effects that it creates. Why not try it on yourself?

Get raw turmeric and make a paste by blending it in the mixture. Take little bit and apply on your face. You may add milk if your skin is not too oily. Leave this paste for 20 minutes and wash with luke warm water.

This method is not recommended for pimple prone skin.

HONEY- glow is much related to moisture. Have you noticed how an oiled surface glows? That’s what honey does to your skin. It is a great moisturiser and has antibacterial properties that also fights skin infection.

Apply plain raw honey on your face and wash it off with cool water after 15-20 minutes. Follow this on a daily basis to get soft, glowing and radiant skin.

CUCUMBER- cucumber has cooling and astringent effect on your skin. It hydrates and gives an overall glow.

Cut the cucumber into thick pieces and rub all over your face and neck. Leave it for half an hour and wash it with running water. This should be done daily for greater benefit. The ones who are sensitive to cold and cough can restrict this method to thrice weekly.

Apart from these you can also try aloe vera juice on your face. Above all, remember to keep your face clean and get adequate sleep.

Get that glow!
