Skin18.com Haul and Website Review

Hello beauties,

skin18.com website review
skin18.com website review

Summers are here and I have a love/hate relationship with this weather. I love it because it is supposed to be the vacation time of the year. Its time to bring out our shorts, skirts, rompers and flaunt some skin. On the other hand, I absolutely hate the unwanted tans, blemishes and ageing of skin. If you want to enjoy the holidays, you have to take care of your skin. I’ve learned the hard way that Skin comes first and Make up afterwards. Last year, I wholly dedicated and have undergone treatment to take care of my skin and the results are acne-free, no blemish skin. Now I am in love with skincare products. I believe healthy skin can make you look beautiful even without makeup. So our Focus should be Skin first. Having said that, today I am going to review about this Korean beauty website SKIN18.Com. I have heard and experienced myself that Korean skincare products are awesome. We have beauty centre in Mumbai which sells some Korean skincare products but they are not consistent and suddenly out of shelf when you need them. Skin18.com was kind enough to approach me to review their products and the timing was just perfect… Summers!

Skin18 has sent me some 17 samples and I have received it within 15 days from dispatch. That was pretty quick because in Mumbai the customs usually hold the parcel coming any corner of the world. Thankfully, there was no customs charge because it mentioned $5.00 also it was “gift” marked. All the samples were intact and had extremely cute packaging. I love the packaging of Korean products. If you wish to try the samples you can purchase them by paying a minimal shipping fee. Also I love the fact that they have so many freebies, samples, giveaways and subscription box for their customers. They have extremely caring and nice people in customer service. The customer service keep you updated with your order time to time. They have this subscription box where you can choose skincare products according to your skintype and they will send it across to you. For that, you definitely need to tell them clearly what is your skintype?  Here are the products that I have received from Skin18.com

I tried the Red Ginseng White Clean Active Mask and went totally head over heels over this mask. My face look really tired after a hectic day at work and I had to go out for a dinner. I have put this mask on my face for nearly 15-20 mins. And my face looked so glowing, cold, clean and bright as if I have just done a facial. My mom asked me if I have taken a nap while using this mask. Honestly, I didn’t because the thought of getting ready and leaving asap never let me sleep. So I was clear it was the mask.  After few days I tried the Pomegranate 7skin scheduler Saturday Vital Mask and the results were same. Clear, bright, soft, healthy, cool glowing skin post usage. I can now declare that Skin18 products really work and offer awesome benefits to the skin. No wonder Korean beauties look so young and graceful all the time. I am surely going to order more products once I finish all of these.

I am very keen on trying the serums now. I will keep you posted with the progress of my skin with the serums. In the meanwhile, do check out Skin18.com for a plethora of skincare masks, serums, moisturisers and more in affordable price. They offer free shipping on order of $40.00 otherwise it is $3.00. I bet you will love the K beauty.

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! 🙂

LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT WORKING OUT OR CUTTING ON YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD

This is surely not the first time you are coming across such headings and such promises. But there is one thing which is different about this article and that is; it does not ask you to wrap yourself with plastic or eat some ugly looking seeds. There are thousands of long articles on weight loss but honestly who has that much time and patience and that too when you see the same points written in various forms. However, if you are still keen on losing 4-5 kgs, just give 5 minutes of your time and read this simple topic. We do not promise you any flat stomach or killing curves. We promise you overall weight loss in a healthy way.

  1. Small effort– every single effort that you put in goes a long way. Remember nothing goes in vain as your body records all the changes done to its eating habit. If you are into using an elevator, stop there. Try to use the stairs. Now you are not asked to get to the top of the 20th floor by climbing. Just cover some of the distance by using the stairs. If you have to travel to 10th floor, then climb to first three floors, and then take the lift or the elevator. Similarly, try to walk at least 20-30 minutes three to four times a week. This is not too much and by walk, we just mean walk. That’s all.
  2. Eating habits– well, if you are expecting that you will be debarred from gulping down your favourite chocolate drink or your pizza, you are in for a surprise. You may continue to have your delicacies. Just make sure that you have it in the morning before 11 AM and try not to have them more than twice a week. Replace sweets with fruits for deserts. Having morning breakfast is a must. Do not ever skip your breakfast. Have your favourite and large share of meal by latest 10 A.M
  3. Lunch – you can have your lunch as regular. Do not think too much. Just keep one thing in mind that your lunch is not junk food.
  4. Evening snacks– if you have had your lunch by 2 PM, you can have some fruits at 4 PM. Try having oranges or apples.
  5. Dinner– Now this is the main thing about the entire weight loss dilemma. This point must be followed religiously. Have your dinner latest by 7 or 8 PM. This can be little difficult for officer goers but it is not if you are determined. It is going to be not-so-easy initially but with time you will get used to it and your body will accept this routine.

You can have your tea or coffee as regular. Just follow these simple steps on a daily basis. Once in a while you are allowed to cheat when you go for parties or outing. The most important point from this article is that dinner should be consumed by 7 PM. You may also have green tea twice daily to enhance the process. Nothing else is required. In 20 days, you will start seeing the result. It will be slightly difficult in the first week but you are sure to get this result if you keep these points in mind and most importantly, have your dinner before 7-8 PM. Give it a try!  I have religiously followed this routine and lost 5kgs. I am still on way of losing weight. So it’s time you stop being lazy and make 2k16 your year.

Packaging – As you can see it comes in the sachet form which makes it travel friendly. The bright yellow packaging is attractive looking. However, I always prefer my shampoo in the form of a big bottle when home. Since I have long tresses I need 3 sachets to wash my hair thoroughly.

My Experience with the So Silk Shampoo

My Mother took the initial step of using this shampoo as she loves herbal products. Since she has virgin hair all herbal and chemical free products suit her. She always swears by her Nyle shampoo and was hesitant to try this shampoo. As she is not a person who experiments a lot with her hair (unlike Me 😛 ) So after she agreed to try this, she mentioned that when she went to her yoga classes people kept asking her if she have straighten her hair. Mind you, she already have straight her with a little waviness. But after using this shampoo her hair has become even more straight, soft, smooth and shinier. She skipped using a conditioner to check if this shampoo is working for her. Voila! It did.. It was this shampoo which cleansed the hair very well and kept the tresses soft and healthier. It has a mild flowery smell which stays for some time. However, she mentions that her hair fall remains the same. Also we both prefer shampoo bottles over sachets because of our hereditary long hair scenes. This shampoo didn’t worked too well for my color treated hair. I have ombre hair and the ends need a lot of conditioner. So I have to use a color care shampoo and conditioner. Using this shampoo makes my ends dry and frizzy. Overall, I would say this shampoo is great for virgin hair but if you have chemically treated hair so just stay away.

Pros

  • Makes hair soft, smooth and shiny.
  • Maintains the health of your hair
  • Mild everyday shampoo
  • Smells good
  • Cleanse scalp thoroughly
  • Affordable
  • Sachets are travel friendly
  • Attractive packaging
  • Best suited for virgin hair
  • Free from chemicals

Cons

  • Not available in the form of bottles
  • Not suitable for color treated hair
  • Availability

Rating – 4/5

My Recommendation – It’s a great shampoo for everyday use and if you have virgin hair you should really pick this up. Regular use of this shampoo will maintain the health of your hair as it is free from harmful chemicals.
