Jovees Rose Skin Toner 3

Jovees Rose Toner Review

by Bhumika Gupta

What is it and who is it for? Jovees Rose Toner is basically a rose toner cum astringent which is used for the purpose of cleaning your face. The best part is that rose water has always been amazing for the face, the brand has other toners too, one of which is cucumber, but I really wanted to try the rose one. It is claimed to be ideal for normal to dry skin.

The toner comes in a transparent plastic bottle, the liquid inside being visible which is of light rose color. There is a small transparent cap to cover the spray lid. The entire details are mentioned on the body of the bottle.Jovees Rose Skin Toner

Price:

Rs 185 for 200ml

How to Use:

It is mentioned on the body that this product will benefit more if used with Jovees strawberry facewash, it’s a great one too, I had previously reviewed it, check out if you haven’t already. So clean your face with the face wash, let it dry and then spray sufficient quantity on cotton balls and dab on face and neck, you should try use it twice a day.

My Experience with Jovees Rose Toner

My experience till now it has been good; I can assure that the product would do well to people with dry skin. It does clean my face a lot. My skin looks quite soft and clean after the application. The best part is the fragrance; it is pure rose water which is pleasant but not strong or irritable. It also provides an instant cooling effect when applied. It might not work a lot on the pores, and I think there is some artificial color added to the product.

Positives
  1. Smells really fresh
  2. Good at removing oil and dirt from the face
  3. Will give you a clean and clear look
Negatives
  1. Does not work a lot on pores
  2. Not very travel-friendly
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I would recommend you guys to try it, especially people with oily skin should go for this one. It will do well to you guys, as it did for me.

Elle18 Kajal Review

My Experience withElle18 Kajal

My experience till now has been average, the major 2 plus points are the cost and the packaging as it extremely travels friendly. You can carry it anywhere as it hardly occupies any space, it’ll fit in your pockets too. I have basically kept it as a backup option, to carry it to places, or to apply it when I’m going somewhere just for 2-3 hours, because after 3 hours it might smudge.

Elle18 Kajal Review 4

The finish is dark black, I like the pointed tip, makes it look quite neat, but later might be tuff for the application. You guys can also try the pencil Kajal of the same brand.

Nivea Strawberry Lip Balm Review

by Bhumika Gupta

What is it and who is it for? Nivea Strawberry Lip Balm is basically a moisturizing lip balm, which will make your lips soft and smooth; it gives a very little color to your lips, school girls!

Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry Lip Balm Review 2

My Experience with Nivea Strawberry Lip Balm

My experience has been lovely, it’s like one constant product for me; I don’t want much of colored lip balms, because that’s not the purpose of a lip balm, this makes my lips look soft and moisturized. The fragrance is nice but not too much of strawberry. It is quietly balanced. Also, it is very easy to carry it anywhere. Before using harsh matte lipsticks also you can moisturize your lips with it, or I would suggest, you can use it over any pink or red matte lipstick too. I repeat it after 3 hours. But just in case you have extra chapped and dry lips then you can go for a stronger lip balm.

by Bhumika Gupta

What is it and who is it for? Nivea Lip Butter Caramel Cream is a caramel lip-butter, sweet is taste and a little whitish on the lips when applied, as going by the name the texture is very buttery and a little sticky! No it will not give any color to your lips but just white. The packaging is round, and the body is caramel in color. You need to apply it from your finger. The details are mentioned at the back of the pack.

How to Use:

Apply the Lip Butter with the finger to help to control how much butter is used. You can use it twice or thrice a day. It is easy to carry also. But as it gives you a little white color, prefer applying it at home only!

My Experience with Nivea Lip Butter Caramel Cream

My experience has been fine; I like the stay of it. It keeps my lips hydrated for about 5 hours in 1 go. I like the buttery soft texture it gives to my lips. I knew it is a trusted brand. What I dint like is its color, and that it is a little sticky because of the buttery effect, but it will work for the extreme dry lip also unlike the other normal lip balms, for applying at home this is one of the best products to regain the softness of your lips, as it hydrates them very deeply!

Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder Review 3

What is it and who is it for? Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder is claimed to be a White Super Fresh compact which gives your skin a matte fresh look, the finish is powdery but not satin. The application will stay well till 4…5 hours, after that, you will need a touch-up. It comes in simple white packaging with a mirror inside; it has a plain white puff for the application. The pack comes in a white cardboard box which mentions all the necessary details required! I like the simple packaging of it as it’s really easy to carry it anywhere.

You can use it like any of the compacts you are using, over your bb creams. Tap it evenly all over your face, most importantly chose the correct shade for you, the details are mentioned at the back of the compact. Please spread it evenly!

Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder Review 3

 My Experience with the Maybelline White Super Fresh Compact Powder

Well, in my experience this is one of the best affordable compacts currently, it holds a very refreshing fragrance, it gives a nice powdery finish to your face, no it does not make you look extra white if you chose the color tone correctly, it is claimed to have a 12 hour stay which is obviously not true the stay will not be more than 5 hours. But it’s a total justice with the price which is only Rs 150. The color tone shell is quite warm and almost perfect for the wheatish complexions!

Maybelline Color Sensational Summer Sunset Lipstick review 1

Maybelline Summer Sunset Lipstick Review

by Bhumika Gupta

What is it and who is it for? Maybelline Summer Sunset Lipstick is an extremely dark red shade, its undoubtedly a pretty bold color, I would say it is more suitable for ladies and not girls, as it’ll add numbers to your age! The lipstick has a royal maroon body, the cap fits tightly, currently, the body of the lipstick might have changed, but the name of the color and its shade is the same J.
Maybelline Color Sensational Summer Sunset Lipstick review 1

Price:

Rs. 285 might vary now

How to Use:

Apply it from your center lips towards the corners and then on your lower lip. The application is not very good as it bleeds, 2 applications should be enough. You will definitely need tissues after this! :)

My Experience with Maybelline Summer Sunset Lipstick

My experience has not been very amazing, the lipstick bleeds, the application requires time to be neat, I would say that the color is good, dark enough and also it does not dry, I like the stay of this.

Maybelline Color Sensational Summer Sunset Lipstick review 5

It will stay for about 3..3.5 hours. But honestly with my personal experience Maybelline has given a lot more better than this particular shade, it is not very satisfactory. The lipshade may also transfer, which definitely adds on to the cons more than its pros. I would say that it is not a very win win kinda shade and it is not at all for the day time!Maybelline Color Sensational Summer Sunset Lipstick review 4

Positives
  1. Pigmented
  2. Does Not Dry
  3. Dark Bold Color
  4. Easy To Carry
Negatives 
  1. Bleeds
  2. May transfer
  3. Cannot be used in day time at all.
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

No, I would not recommend this shade because I personally did not like it! Even after having a good color also, the texture makes it not to be purchased again!

L’Oréal Paris Magique Supreme Black Kajal Review 2

How to Use:

Apply it like any normal Kajal as you apply but I would say that you will need some more than 2-3 swipes to get a dark color! As I mentioned it comes in a twist-up packaging so it is pretty

My Experience with Loreal Magique Supreme Black Kajal

My experience has been fine, I like the stay of the Kajal, and it is good as it does not smudge easily like many of the other kajal’s. It is pretty easy to carry and apply, makes you apply it quiet neatly. But what I did not like about the product is that it does not give a very dark color as I want.

On the stay and smudge part, I am pretty satisfied with the product, but I really dint find that dark color which can enhance my eyes that well. The product is not totally water-proof, but it does stay for a good 5-6 hours!

Positives 
    1. Does not smudge soon

Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream Review

Lakme CC Cream Complexion Care Review

by Bhumika Gupta

What is it and who is it for? Lakme CC Cream Complexion Care Is a Complexion Care cream which will give fairness to your face; it might do well to people with oily skin. It is claimed to be an instant skin stylist with SPF 20 in it. According to me this works more as a thick foundation, I don’t really like the texture because my skin is dry! Yes it does give the glow, but not the smoothness. The CC cream comes in a Beige tube with a silver metallic cap. The tube is thin, and sleek which is easy to carry anywhere.Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream Review

Price:

Rs275 for 30ml

How to Use:

The usage is pretty normal, I would now like to come to the main point, I was not satisfied when I used this cream directly on my skin because of the texture, I then mixed a very little amount of moisturizer with the cc cream, and then applied it all over my face, the blending was perfect after that, and I loved the look it gave to my face, I would recommend all of you who have a dry skin, please try this method.

My Experience with Lakme CC Complexion care Cream

Well, my experience with this one has been very average, that too when I mixed it with a little moisturizer, I cannot use it raw on my skin as it does not give my dry skin a good texture.

Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream Review 3

The smell is like the typical Lakme one which I personally love<3. It does give my face fairness. For people who have oily skin, they might be able to use it directly. Please know that there are 2 shades of this CC cream, buy it according to your skin tone!

Positives 
  1. Fragrance
  2. Gives Glow

Negatives 
  1. Not very suitable for dry skin
  2. May look extra white!
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

UMM.. not really, there are better options for eg garnier, my personal favorite. But for me this CC cream is a no no! because of the dry skin that I have, I can recommend it to people who do not have dry skin.!
