Nivea Men Lip Balm – Best Lip Balm for Men ?

by Juhi Sharma

I have enough of lip balms in my closet, but I have to have got a lip balm I don’t know why. But this time, I purchased an SPF 15 Lip balm which I will use this summer. This lip balm is actually meant for men. But I think we women can also use this lip balm. I bought this Nivea Men Lip Balm touted as the Best Lip Balm for Men  because it has SPF in it. Let’s see more detailed review.

Nivea Men Lip Balm

Price-  Rs 130 for 4.8 gm

Nivea Men Lip Balm 1

My Experience with Nivea Men Lip Balm

Packaging- Nivea Men Lip balm comes in dark blue packaging. The actual balm is white in color. The lip balm has a twist up packaging which many men may not like.

Shade- This lip balm has no shade.

Texture, Finish & Pigmentation- The texture of lip balm is smooth and creamy. It is white in color but doesn’t leave any white residue on lips.

Fragrance- This lip balm has no fragrance.

Experience-  Nivea is a trusted brand for lotions, lip balms, and body deodorants. Currently, I am loving the Nivea Care lip balm. I almost use this every day. I love the fact that it has no shine or shimmer in it. It is just a perfect lip balm with smooth and creamy texture. When I wear this lip balm, it is not visible on my lips but I can feel it on my lips. I wear this underneath my lipsticks too. The staying power is good and stays for good 3 hours and it feels hydrated on lips. It is a lightweight lip balm great for traveling purpose as it will protect your lips from the sun.

Another plus point is that it doesn’t have any tint which makes it suitable for everyone.

PAC Retro Matte Gloss 07 Review

by Juhi Sharma

PAC Retro Matte Gloss comes in different shades of nudes, pinks, and reds.Today I’m going to review a pretty nude liquid gloss which is actually a matte shade.Yes, this shade is PAC Retro Matte Gloss 07.

 

Price:

Rs 550 for 6.5 ml

How to apply:

Moisturize your lips using a lip balm.

Using the applicator of the Gloss, gently glide it over your lips.

First, it will be in a liquid form, but after a minute, it will dry out into a matte finish.

My experience with PAC Retro Matte Gloss 07

To be honest, I was little scared to buy a nude lipstick online because it seems different on screen and comes out a different shade on your lips. Many nude shades wash out Indian skin tone.

For this shade, I was little confused whether it will look good on me or will it wash off my skin tone because it is very difficult to find your perfect nude shade.

Luckily, this shade suits my skin tone. It is pinky plum nude shade. But it will look different nude color on different skin tone.

Talking about the lipstick, it stays for a day long.

At the time of application, it is in a liquid form, but it dries out matte in minutes. After drying, my lips started feeling dry. Since I have dry lips, I always apply lip balm underneath every lipstick. Here also I applied lip balm under the gloss, but then it feels dry. So to avoid that, I applied lip balm over my lipstick to get that moisture back on my lips.

If you have a super dry lip, then you should exfoliate your lips before application.

Also, this lipstick is like all other liquid lipsticks i.e. they are very hard to remove. You need to use an oil based remover to remove it. I always use coconut oil to remove my makeup.

This lipstick gets easily removed using coconut oil.

PAC Retro Matte Gloss 07

Pros:
  1. Sleek packaging
  2. Perfect nude shade for fair to medium Indian skin tone
  3. Matte finish
  4. Stays for long
  5. Not get transferred
  6. Not patchy
Cons:
  1. Drying formula
  2. Will wash out dark skin tone people
  3. People with super dry lips must exfoliate before application.
  4. Very hard to remove
  5. Feels dry minutes after application
Would I recommend and repurchase?

I would recommend fairer skin tone people to try out this shade as it’s a pretty nude shade for everyday wear.

I would not really repurchase this, because of its drying nature.

Cystic Acne Treatment at Home

by Juhi Sharma

Cystic Acne Treatment at Home: In our teenage, it is normal to get a pimple or two on our face. But if it is red big painful breakout in your skin, then it must be Cystic Acne.This acne can affect large areas of your skins and it may leave a permanent mark on your skin. Let’s know more about it. I will not only talk about cystic acne treatment but when will also share My Personal Tried and Tested Adult Acne Treatment below !!

Cystic Acne Treatment!

What Cystic Acne?

When you get a pimple, some pores get clogged in there and sometimes bacteria get into the pores making it red and swollen.

When this gets deep into your skin, it may be the cause of Cystic Acne. A pimple will get bigger and swollen. It may itch or hurt and sometimes, it gets full of pus.

If a Cyst burst, it may lead to more breakouts around it.

Who Gets It?

Cystic Acne is more prone to occur when you get pimples, that is, in your teenage. It is said that Men are likely to get more of Cystic Acne then women, maybe because we ladies take care of our skin and stuff more than men.

What Causes It?

In our teenage, androgens increase. This leads to change in the skin which leads to clogged pores which thus result in cystic acne.

What is Cystic Acne Treatment?
  1. First, if the Cystic Acne is paining and getting worse, you should immediately consult a dermatologist.
  2. Having oral antibiotics can help reduce the Acne.
  3. Prescription based lotions, creams can help in unclogging the pores.
  4. Using more of vitamin A can really help in reducing acne.
  5. Have a proper diet and eat lots of green vegetables.
  6. Drink a lot and lot of water daily.
  7. Spironolactone is a medication which can help in getting rid of unwanted water in acne.
One Home Remedy for Adult Ance Treatment !!

Take one medium-sized potato, and extract its juice. RAW potato juice. Drink one tablespoon of this juice either as is or in watermelon juice for 10. You will see a magical transformation in the acne.

What should you avoid?
  1. Don’t rub it or try to press it so to get out the pus from it, it may lead to more breakouts
  2. Don’t ignore any acne for so long, it is getting worse day by day, consult a doctor.
  3. Don’t use any local brand skincare or makeup on your face with pimples, it can worsen the acne.

These things are some small part of our daily life which tends to develop because of our body’s imbalance nature. Don’t take them on a much serious note. Just take care of yourself and your body to cure them. Stay healthy and happy :)

Kara MakeUp Remover Wipes

I am going to travel in a couple of weeks, so I decided to buy some travel essential products which doesn’t weigh much and serve me well. I purchased some wipes from the brand Kara to try them out and if they worked I will carry them in my travel bag. Currently, I am trying the Kara MakeUp Remover Wipes which I’m going to review now. I bought their toning and refreshing wipes too. I will try them and review them soon. :)

Price- Rs 85 for 10 wipes

Rs 175 for 30 wipes
HOW TO USE:

1     Remove one wipe from the pack and gently rub it around your face and neck

2     Be gentle around the eyes and make sure to not wipe your eyes

3     Properly dispose of your wipe

4     Reseal the pack to ensure freshness

 

Kara MakeUp Remover Wipes 1

My Experience with Kara MakeUp Remover Wipes

The Makeup Removal wipes come in a plastic pack containing 10 or 30 wipes. In my case, I have ordered the 10 wipes first to kind of try and see how this will treat my skin. The pack is very traveler friendly as it is small and hygienic. At first, I thought that the smaller pack would not be having a proper lock, but it has a tape like opening and locking which is sufficient for 10 wipes.

The packet says that it has seaweed and lavender in it. Yes, it has some lavender kind of fragrance.

The wipes are of viscose fiber which doesn’t get torn while removing makeup. The wipes are wet and have some serum in them which doesn’t make my skin dry. This can be used by dry skin people as well as oily skin people as it has the appropriate amount of serum.

It is mentioned in the packet to be gentle on eyes. When I try it on my eyes, my eyes started stinging. So I immediately wash my eyes with water, From that day, I never use this on my eyes. I rather use natural coconut oil to remove my eyes. For the rest of my makeup, I use these wipes. For traveling purpose or coming back home late at night, these wipes serve us very well.

Removing makeup with these wipes is not tough as they are damped in serum and they don’t require harsh rubbing into skin. After using this wipe, if I am home, I wash my face with face wash and then moisturize. But if I am not home, I only wipe my face to kind of freshen up.

Kara MakeUp Remover Wipes 3

Pros-
  1. Dermatologically safe
  2. Contain seaweed and lavender
  3. Affordable price
  4. Easy to carry for travel
  5. Viscose fiber wipes
  6. Damped into serum
  7. Removes face makeup easily
  8. Hygienic packaging
Cons-
  1. Contain Paraben
  2. My eyes started stinging on removing eye makeup
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

For removing face makeup while traveling and freshen up your face, these wipes are totally recommended. But for eye makeup, I strictly don’t recommend this.

I would rather not repurchase this.

Elle18 Color Pop Matte Lipstick Selfie Red (R34) 1

Hey Guys, Christmas is here and Red is the color which goes on trend every year. To rock this Christmas, I went on to buy a Bold Red Lipstick from the brand Elle 18. Its the first brand from which I purchased my first lipstick 2 Years ago when I started going college. Let’s see how this Elle18 Selfie Red shade works for me. =)

 

Elle18 Color Pop Matte Lipstick Selfie Red (R34) 1

Price: Rs 100 for 4.3 g
How to apply?

Step 1: Apply by starting in the center of your upper lip.

Step 2: Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip following the contours of your mouth.

Step 3: Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

Elle18 Color Pop Matte Lipstick Selfie Red (R34) 2

My Experience with Elle18 Selfie Red

Packaging: Elle 18 Lipstick comes in a black sleek packaging with a clipart of girl’s face. The bullet looks quite sturdy and the cap is nicely secured and doesn’t fall out easily.

Colour & Texture: Selfie Red is a Bright Red shade which you can’t go wrong with. It has a warm tone which will suit every skin tone people as we have more warmth in our skin tone. Talking about the texture, the name says its a matte lipstick but it actually is semi-matte. It doesn’t get dry on lips which I like for the fact that I have very dry lips, and in this case, I need no lip balm underneath my lipstick.

Fragrance: Elle 18 lipsticks have a fruity scent not very strong but I’m sure people will like it.

Experience: Selfie Red is a safe red shade which does not have any pink or orange undertone to it. Rockstar Red from the same range is a red shade with pink undertones in case you love pink undertone reds.

This lipstick transfers a little as it has semi matte texture. It stays for a good 5 hours followed by a light meal, and after that, it leaves a tint on lips. This shade is pretty wearable in a daytime as well as night time, and you also need to carry that confidence to wear this bright shade especially in the daytime.

This Bright Red will look beautiful with ethnic dresses and for the times when you wanna go bold with your makeup.

I would say, wear this selfie red to get a perfect pout selfie ;)

  1. Moisturising Formula

Cons:

  2. Ingredient list is not provided
  3. Doesn’t stay for long
  4. Not 100% matte
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Yes, I will recommend this lipstick if you want a good rich warm red shade which is pocket-friendly.

For its Colour and Price, Yes I will repurchase it. I wouldn’t mind spending money on this.

Cranberry is high in calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Cranberry juice accelerates the production of urine in an organism.

You should drink cranberry juice daily for better results.

  1. Onion

Onion purifies our blood and stimulates urine production, thus preventing kidney stones.

For water retention, boil some pieces of onion in water, cool it down, add some salt to taste and drink it twice a day.

  1. Fennel seeds

Fennel seeds also help in the production of urine in our body and thus support the kidney to process sodium and water. It prevents toxic building and helps in proper digestion.

Add some fennel seeds to the boiling water and get it boiled. Cool it down and drink it twice a day.

Excessive intake of salt that is sodium may cause excessive fluid retention in the body tissues. Hence, avoid food with a high amount of salt.

Wet n Wild Lip liner Berry Red

Red is a universal wearable shade. When I’m in doubt on which lip color to go for, I always go for red lipsticks. Recently I bought a lip liner from the brand Wet n Wild which is budget friendly and has a good rich cool toned red shade. I’m sure most of the people will love this Wet n Wild Lip liner Berry Red as I do. Let’s see how this one works.

Price and quantity

Rs 135 for 1.4 gm

My Experience with Wet n Wild Berry Red Lipliner

Packaging-

Wet n Wild Lip Liner comes in a sharpening pencil with color coding at the bottom half of the pencil. The pencil is not retractable one which causes it to sharpen every time. The cap falls off easily which is a con for this.

Shade– 

The shade of the lip liner is Berry Red which is a rich red wearable in daytime especially, on every skin type.

Texture, Finish & Pigmentation- 

The texture is smooth and creamy and it doesn’t flake on my lips. The finish is creamy which gets dry in some hours of wear. Talking about the pigmentation, this lip liner has good pigmentation. I use it as a lip liner as well as lipstick.

Fragrance- 

This has no fragrance.

Experience- 

Unlike nude shades, Red is a color which you can never go wrong with. The lip liner I bought has a rich red color which goes perfectly with my skin. I wear this lip liner occasionally. This lip liner stays for a good 4 hours and it does fade away after my meal. It doesn’t bleed which is a great pro because lip liners are meant for making our lipstick stop bleeding and this does that perfectly. It is not a waterproof one and it does transfer a little.

This red shade has some cool tones to it which brighten up my face. Also, the size of the lip liner is long as compared to most of my lip liners.

Overall for the price being paid for this lip liner, I’m happy with it. As it claims, it has smooth and creamy texture. Totally recommended budget friendly product.

  5. Affordable Price
  6. Good pigmentation
Cons-
  1. Need to sharpen the pencil

  4. Transfers a little
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

I would recommend this red lip liner to ladies who are looking for a red lip liner for red lipsticks.

I would repurchase this shade when I will be done with one red lip liner.

My Experience with Colorbar On The Go Makeup Remover Wipes

Packaging: 

On the top, to open and reseal the opening, there is a plastic opener which secures the wipes. I like it over the plastic tape ones because the tape loses its stickiness and then the wipes come in contact with air and they lose its moisture and serum in them.

Fragrance: 

The wipes are suitable for all skin types. The smell is relaxing and fresh and doesn’t irritate my nose.

Effectiveness: 

Unlike the Kara makeup removing wipes, the Colorbar ones doesn’t irritate my eyes. My eye makeup gets easily removed. Also, these wipes do remove waterproof makeup. After removing my makeup with wipes, I wash my face with face wash because these wipes make my skin oily. All in one, these wipes do their job well and worked for me. I like it over the kara removing wipes.

What I like about this product
  1. On the go makeup removal wipes
  2. Travel-friendly packaging
  3. Suitable for all skin types

Essence Eyeshadow 06 Metropolitan

Essence Eyeshadow Metropolitan Review + Swatches

by Juhi Sharma

I am not an eye makeup person. Except for the eyeliner, mascara and sometimes Kajal, I never use anything. As I’m learning more of makeup and experiment is still on process, I bought this brown eyeshadow – the Essence Eyeshadow Metropolitan to start off. I’m sure my small eyes will also pop one day when I will be a pro at makeup, hehe. Let’s move onto the review part.

 

Essence Eyeshadow 06 Metropolitan

Price- Rs 199 for 2.5 gm

 

 

My Experience with Essence Eyeshadow 06 Metropolitan

Packaging- 

The mono eyeshadow brights comes in a small round transparent case which makes it easy to locate the shade.

Shade– 

The shade is 06 metropolitan which is a nice dark brown crease shade. It has some shimmer in it.

Texture, Finish & Pigmentation-

The texture is smooth and powdery. It is a bendable shade with little fallouts which is completely ok as it is has a powdery finish. The pigmentation is great. I use this shade on my crease, the swatches will better show the pigmentation.

Fragrance-

It is a fragrance-free product.

Experience- 

Looking at the pan, the eyeshadow looks glittery. On application, it doesn’t have that much shimmer included. This shade, I use it on my crease to contour my eyes. Since I have small hooded eyes, I have very small lids to work with eyeshadows and then eyeliners. One thick layer of eyeliner covers half of my visible lid in open eyes. Thus, I thought of trying a brown shade to sought of contour my lids to make a difference. In the swatches, I have only used this eyeshadow with no primer. I loved the look it turned out, if added more colors, it will definitely look more beautiful.

Essence Eyeshadow 06 Metropolitan 4

Essence Eyeshadow 06 Metropolitan 5

Pros-
  1. Neutral warm Brown shade
  2. Bareable shimmery
  3. Smooth texture
  4. Easily Blendable
  5. Pigmentation is amazing
  6. Travel-Friendly Packaging
Cons-
  1. Little fallouts
  2. Not matte
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

I would recommend this shade if you are looking for a brown crease shade with little shimmer in it.I would not really repurchase it as shimmer cannot be wearable on a daily basis, will go for matte one instead.
