Summer is just arrived and it’s already started to show its power. We have to be smart enough to fight with this summer like a ‘Pro’. We need to indulge ourselves to having a summer-ready wardrobe, skin care and food. 

Global warming is hitting us everyday. Summers are getting worse day by day. So it’s not about taking care of ourselves, it’s also taking care of our earth. Planting some greenery or feeding some birds in this summer can actually make some changes in a long run. But beside that I have some really cool tips to cover you this summer. So here I’m sharing you some tips to hit the summer back and stay cool.

Wardrobe – This is the season when you actually need to wear easy breezy outfits. Neon and animal prints are trends in this season. So put some neon colours in your wardrobe. Again Coral is the Pantone Colour of The Year 2019 which is vibrant yet mellow. So you should include this colour in your wardrobe. Mid length dresses are perfect for summers. Breathable cotton fabrics are quintessential for summer. Denims are kind of staple items for your wardrobe and it can be infused with almost anything. Soft, comfortable fabrics are ideal for summers.

Skin Care – CTM process is the most important part of skin care in summer days. Sunscreen application is must whenever you are going outside. Even if you are inside your home then also apply a proper day cream which has good SPF. Spray facial mists once in a while to keep your skin cool and hydrated. Apply soothing gel regularly to get moistured and hydrated skin. If you are lagging to apply face masks then sheet masks are the perfect solution to use. Apply sheet masks at least thrice in a week. Sleeping masks can be a good choice as well. Clean your face with normal water frequently if you have acne prone skin or highly sensitive. Exfoliate and use rose-water to calm down your skin.

Food & Drinks – Drinking plenty of water is the main rule to fight summer. Your body needs several glass of waters per day to fight summer. Eat water-rich fruits like watermelon, strawberries, grapefruits, cucumber etc. Take lots of salads and less spicy foods. Include vegetables and dairy products in your diet. If you’re into dairy-free diet then take anything substitute.

The bottom line is staying hydrated is most important from inside out. Stay hydrated and fight this summer like a pro.

Makeup is one of those integral part of our daily lives which helps to express that perfect style of ours which can define ourselves. It is also the best reflector of our mood and attitude as well. Investing in good makeup products is not only all about ‘look’ but also a genuine necessity .
We all know high-end makeup products are truly effective but also quite expensive. Sometimes it doesn’t comes into our budget or sometimes we feel really niggard to expense that much money for makeup. So here I’m sharing all the drugstore dupes for high-end products with almost same results which will also save your money.

P.S.- All the products mentioned here, are used and analysed by me for 2-3 months at least.

This might me one of the most discussed product from Clinique. I got this few weeks back and started using that from the very day when I have purchased it. I have heard mixed reviews of this and that is the reason I have chosen to buy this product with hesitation. So here’s the detail review of this…

How to Use?

This product can recognised as a one stop solution for skin care. I have tried this in plenty of ways and I swear no use has disappointed me. Here I’m giving a brief of how you can use this :

1. Use it as your regular moisturiser. It keeps skin hydrated and moisture for truly longest time. Even you can use it as makeup base or top of your makeup.
2. Use it as ready-to-go moisture face pack. Just apply all over your face with a thick layer, keep it for good 5-6 minutes and wipe it off with wet tissue. You won’t believe how your skin glows.
3. Dab it on the highlighting points of your face to get a natural dewy looking skin.
4. Apply wherever you feel extra dryness. Like, elbows, cuticles etc.

Effect:

1. Keeps skin hydrated for really longest time. Even after washing face (I haven’t found to worked for 72 hours but it keeps skin moistured and hydrated for 24 hours to 30 hours. Maybe it depends on skin type. Mine is combination skin type.) .
2. Makes skin dewy, healthy and glowing.
3. Maintains moisture balance in skin.

Why I like it?

It is very light-weighted.
It’s non-greasy oil free gel formula.
Needs quiet lesser amount.
Immediate glow and radiance.
Dermatologically tested.
One product with several uses.
No parabéns, no phthalates and no fragrance formula.

What I don’t like?
It’s jar container.

Packaging:
It comes with a box packaging and in a glass container with silver lid. The packaging is quiet sassy although I don’t like every time using my finger tip to take out the product from the container.

Skin Type:
It is perfect for all skin types. Clinique claims it to allergy tested and 100% fragrance free. But if you are allergic to aloe vera then don’t use it as it has aloe vera.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Glycerine, Green Tea extract, Lady’s Thistle extract, Birch Bark extract, Aloe Barbadensis leaf, caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid etc.

Price:
Rs. 1550 for 30 ml container.

Availability:
Amazon, Nykaa  , Sephora or any Clinique store.

Do I repurchase it again?
Definitely I will buy it again.
