Skin tags are harmless skin growths that appear due to skin friction. When skin rubs onto skin or onto another surface, like clothes, in a continuous manner, skin tags appear. They represent no danger to your health as they are benign skin growths. Still, if they are in visible areas, and even if they’re not, most people would like to get rid of skin tags. While you can ask for the help of a dermatologist, you can also get rid of skin tags at home, by using natural remedies. If you are wondering what will help remove a skin tag fast and easy, do have a look at the method mentioned below.

  • Lemon Juice

You can use natural lemon juice, from a freshly squeezed lemon, directly on your skin tag. Just take a clean cotton ball, soak it in lemon juice, and apply it on the skin tag. Rub the cotton ball gently on the skin tag, making sure that the lemon juice is absorbed. The skin tag should eventually fall off on its own, but you will have to repeat this treatment for almost a month, performing it once a day. The best part about natural treatments is that they are available and they are safe, but they do take time to provide any results.

  • Dental Floss

This may sound weird and even painful, but it is actually not painful at all. Those skin tags have no nerves that can make them sensitive, so you won’t feel a thing if you choose to use this method. In fact, it is one of the most common used methods, as it removes skin tags instantly. What you need to do is take a piece of dental floss long enough to allow you to wrap it around the base of the skin tag. Then strangle the skin tag until it falls off. Regardless of how efficient this method is, you should have in mind that it may not work so well on smaller skin tags, as it will be harder to wrap their base with dental floss due to their reduced size.

  • Banana Peels

The peel of a banana is definitely not something you should throw away after enjoying the fruit. It has a wide array of purposes, starting with fertilizer for your plants to show polisher, skin blemish remover, and so on. But, the peel of this amazing fruit can also be used for removing skin tags in a safe and natural manner. To do so, take the peel of a banana and cut it into smaller piece. Take one of these pieces and apply it on your skin tag, with the inside of the peel on your skin tag. Secure the piece on the skin tag with a band-aid. The best way to use this treatment if by leaving the piece of banana peel like this throughout the night. The treatment will have to be repeated every night until the skin tag eventually falls off on its own.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Almost every household has this ingredients in the kitchen and even if you don’t have it, it is something cheap you can find in any grocery store. Apple cider vinegar can restore your skin’s pH if it is mixed with water and used as a facial toner. The antibacterial properties of the vinegar will kill the bacteria that is responsible for pimples, helping you have a clearer skin. But, the apple cider vinegar can also be used on skin tags. Take a cotton ball and dip it well in apple cider vinegar, and then apply it on your skin tag. Repeat this treatment as often as you can throughout the day. After approximately a week, the skin tag should dry out and fall off.

  • Onion Juice

It may be a smelly treatment, but onion juice has been used for centuries to treat warts and skin tags. In order to remove skin tags with onion juice, you need to cut an onion, put salt on it, and allow it to sit overnight. The salt will remove the juice from the onion without you having to do it, as we all know what onion juice does to our eyes. The next day, take the resulted onion juice, apply it on your skin tag, and cover it. It would be best to do this treatment at night, before bed, leaving the skin tag covered for the entire night. This way, you will wash in the morning and there will be no unpleasant smells. The treatment has to be repeated each night, for several nights in a row, until the skin tag falls off. The duration of the treatment can last between 14 and 28 days.

  • Garlic Juice

This is another treatment that can be quite smelly, but, in spite of all this, it has been used for skin tags for a very long time and it is still used today as well. You need to crush some garlic cloves to get their juices, and you can do this with the blade of a knife, placed on the side. Press the blade of the knife against the garlic clove until you crush it. Take the juice and apply it on your skin tag, and cover it so that the juice stays there. The treatment should be performed three times each day, for a week or more until you get the desired results.

  • Vitamin E

Rubbing vitamin E on the skin tags directly will help you make them disappear. Use a small quantity of vitamin E for rubbing on your skin tag, for two times each day. Be ready to repeat this operation for two weeks until you actually manage to get the desired results and the skin tag vanished from your skin. You can find vitamin E in beauty stores. Even if you find them in the form of capsules, you can always crush the capsules and get the liquid out, so you can use it as you please.

Hi Guys!! I hope you all are doing good..

I am here with another unboxing and review of My Envy Box. Last month, I was very impressed by their Beauty Box as they had sent five products worth Rs. 3000. This time again, they have come up with five products which have some really impressive claims and ingredients list.

In case you don’t know, My Envy Box has two kinds of subscription boxes each month, i.e. Jewelry Box and Beauty Box. What I am going to unbox for you today is their May Beauty Box – Resort Edition. If you are interested in knowing what all I have got in this month’s box, the subscription plans, my overall experience and recommendation, then please keep on reading this post till the end.

Current Subscription Plans:

One Month – Rs. 850

Three Months – Rs. 2250

Six Months – Rs. 4350

One Year – Rs. 8500

Availability:

One Month Subscription

Three Months Subscription

Six Months Subscription

One Year Subscription

Packaging of the Box:

As always, the box comes in a white colored outer cardboard box to keep it safe and secure. The actual box looks very cool as it gives holiday vibes. This month’s box is a Resort Edition and has a beach theme going all over with star fish, rocks, shells etc making the background very cool and summer like. As always, the brand’s logo is printed at the center and has a magnetic lock system which I love and will definitely reuse like I do every month. All the products were securely kept in hay and were seal packed which did not allow any sort of leakage or mess.

Inside the Box:

As you open the box, you see a leaflet kept on top which says “Resort Edition – MAY BEAUTY BOX”.

Here is the close-up of that leaflet which has the pricing and important details of the contents of the box.

Next up, we have another leaflet which is by a very renowned and promising brand – “Kronokare”. This leaflet has a coupon code of Rs. 200 off on their Sun Shield Face Sunscreen and also gives a good detail about sun protection, harmful effects of UV rays on the skin and some do’s and don’ts. Here is the closeup of this leaflet as well.

Here we go with all the products one by one.

1. ELENBLU – Liquid Eyeliner

Cost: Rs. 499 for 2.5 ml

Product Description and Claims:

My Thoughts:

I am new to this brand and I always feel happy and excited when I come across new brands in subscription boxes. This eyeliner looks like Oriflame – THE ONE Wonder Liner but has a very fine, precise tip unlike the former. It is in the shade “Ebony Black” and has a permanent marker like smell to it. I am yet to give it a try and see how it works for me but I am definitely impressed by its tip, shape and claims.

2. PLUMP – Vitamin C Serum

Cost: Rs. 950 for 50 ml

Product Description and Claims: My Thoughts:

Again, I am new to this brand but Vitamin C serums and creams are my favorite. They work wonders for the skin, especially mine and keep as many problems away as possible. This serum is free from parabens and sulphates and is also against animal testing. It comes in a dark colored, glass bottle to prevent light oxidation and a dropper with a golden rim.

The bottle looks classic and I think this is probably a full sized product. It has a lovely citrus-like scent to it which I cannot resist putting on my face. On top of that, I am very impressed by its formulation as it is very light weight, non greasy and comfortable to put on.

3. PLANT MAGIK – Natural Hair Vitalizer

Cost: Rs. 900 for 100 ml

Product Description and Claims: My Thoughts:

Whenever I receive a lot of new brands in any of my subscription boxes, I get really really happy. This third brand is again new to me and I can’t wait to see how it performs on me because it is a hair product and I am a hair care junkie too. I love my hair and try to take good care of them as much possible. In this weather, I am often worried by scalp irritation and this baby claims to get rid of scalp infections and itching.

Since it is a non sticky leave on oil, I know I am going to use it every single day. Well, I put on two drops on my palm right now, massaged it in between and applied it through the length of my hair. I am impressed by its non sticky formula and love the fact that it instantly tames down hair frizz without making them look oily or greasy.

Plant Magik has an offer going on as well which is valid till 31st July 2018. They are giving a flat 20% off on Natural Hair Vitaliser on www.plantmagik.com using the coupon code “GIFTBOX01”.

4. KRONOKARE – Sun Shield Face Sunscreen

Cost: Rs. 895 for 55 ml

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

Today I am going to review Enn’s Closet Kandy Floss Lip Scrub for you all.. I have also reviewed their natural and chemical free lipstick in the shade Plum Enn on this blog, so don’t forget to check it out.. I haven’t tried any lip scrub yet except for this one, so I was really really excited how is it going to work on me..

Enn’s Closet is an emerging brand with some great products. They have another lip scrub called the Coco Fee Lip Scrub, let me know if you want me to try it out as well. If you are interested in knowing what I feel about this Kandy Floss lip scrub, will I purchase it or not, is it worth buying, then please keep on reading this post till the end..

Product Description:

Prep your lips with a buff and polish at the start of your make-up routine to ensure your lipstick glides on and stays put.

This Kandy Floss lip scrub promises luscious lips reminiscent of soft cottony dreams, with an aftertaste that’s just as sweet, if not sweeter. Herbal, all-natural and chemical-free, buy this lip scrub online to give your lips a fresh and young cotton candy makeover.

Use this scrub before applying our natural lipstick for a smooth, easy, velvety look.

Buy this herbal and all-natural lip scrub online and Enn will deliver it at your doorstep in no time.

Claims:

When you buy the Kandy Floss Lip Scrub online directly from Enn, you are ensured an authentic, herbal and natural product that is chemical-free and cruelty free. We make your skin happy, naturally.

Directions of Usage:

Apply a sufficient amount of Kandy floss lip scrub onto your lips and massage gently.

Ingredients:

Brown Sugar, Coconut Oil, Bubblegum flavor, Kokum Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Honey Extract, Tocopherol Vitamin E, Soya Lecithin

Benefits of Key Ingredients:

Sugar:

Born a natural exfoliator, it won’t leave your lips with the microscopic barely-visible tears caused by most scrubs that you buy online. Graced with just as much hydrating power as it is as an exfoliator, this scrub will leave your lips softer, youthful, and more radiant.

Cold Pressed Coconut Oil:

Benefits of cold pressed coconut oil are well known since centuries in India. Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal. It deeply moisturizes the lips, and hydrates it for a long period of time.

Sweet Almond Oil:

Rich in Vitamin E, almond oil is mild and has hypoallergenic properties which is perfect for sensitive lips.

Almond oil is easy for your lips to absorb, and is also known to help with uneven skin tone.

Beeswax:

Beeswax has a secret property – it attracts water and keeps your lips hydrated. It also protects your lips from getting dryer and calms, soothes, and conditions your lips. And then it seals the deal with a layer of impenetrable protection.

Honey Extract:

Benefits of honey extract are just too many to name. It is antiseptic and full of antioxidants. It deeply moisturizes the lips, soothes it, cleanses your pores and prevents acne. It also helps in reducing wrinkles and adds a touch of glow to your lips.

Cost: Rs. 400 for 15 gms

Shelf Life: 24 months

Availability: Official Website, Nykaa

Packaging:

This lip scrub comes in a clear, glass tub with a glossy, black, plastic screw cap. As you unscrew the cap, you see a white, plastic lid to keep the scrub safe and prevent it from spilling. The tub is filled with the product till the brim and you sniff a mesmerizing candy smell as soon as you remove the lid.

The packaging is transparent, thus convenient and mess proof but I don’t like tub packaging as it is unhygienic. Also, the glass body makes the tub prone to breakage.

Smell: Mild, awesome smell of fruity candies

Texture and Consistency: This lip scrub has a balm like texture and a thick consistency. It has a very oily and moisturizing texture and the exfoliation granules feel like sugar.

My Experience:

I am very lucky to have got very soft, moisturized and pink lips naturally. I really don’t need to exfoliate them enough but whenever I feel like doing so in a few months, I make my own DIY lip scrub with some sugar and honey and I’m good to go.

People with dark lips should exfoliate their lips quite often and can opt for DIYs as well but doing a job like this on a regular basis is messy and time consuming. Ever since I have got this product in my hands, scrubbing the lips has become very easy and quick.

To start off, I must say I am in love with the candy scent of this scrub and I cannot stop raving about it. I am also impressed by the natural ingredients that go into making this product. It is a healthy, pure and completely safe lip scrub that does not cause any sort of irritation, itching or reaction on the lips.

It has a very balmy texture due to which it not only exfoliates the dead skin cells and removes them but also keeps the lips moisturized. It works very effectively and quickly, within around one and a half minute to give the lips a very polished look.

It has very mild scrubbing granules inside which do not feel abrasive or scratchy at all. It not only smoothens out the lips by removing flaky or dead skin but also makes them feel soft, supple, plump and more nourished.

Overall, I love how it feels and works on my lips. It allows the lipstick to stay better and much longer. It also makes the lips look fuller by improving blood circulation. It satisfies me in every way and is a value for money product for me.

Pros of Enn’s Closet Kandy Floss Lip Scrub:

*100% natural ingredients
*Amazing candy scent
*Mild, non abrasive scrubbing granules
*Exfoliates the lips very well
*Removes dead skin cells
*Value for money
*Ingredients list mentioned
*Little quantity required

 Cons of Enn’s Closet Kandy Floss Lip Scrub:

*Only available online
*Packaging prone to breakage
*Unhygienic tub packaging

Will I purchase it?

Yes. I love the formulation and result of this scrub, so I would definitely grab it again.

Will I recommend it?

Yes. If you are looking for a promising lip scrub with a cruelty free formula, you must try this one out.

Is it worth the money?

Yes. This lip scrub works pretty well, so it is completely worth the money according to me.

My Ratings: 4.8/5

Final Verdict: Overall, it is a great lip scrub to try and does not disappoint me in any way. I just wish its packaging is improved in some way and gets more hygienic. I hope the brand takes my suggestion on a positive note.

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

I am here with another review about a new launch from Olivia and this time it is their Honey Almond Moisturizer with Sunscreen. If you are interested in knowing how this product worked for me, will I purchase it or not, is it worth buying and what was my overall experience with it, then please keep on reading this post till the end.

Product Description:

Claims:

*Not tested on animals
*100% Vegetarian
*For a smooth and glowing skin

Warning:

*Keep away from children
*For external use only

Ingredients:

Cost: Rs. 70 for 100 ml

Shelf Life: 2 years

Availability: On all local beauty stores

Packaging:

This product comes in a light yellow colored, slim plastic bottle with a sturdy, flip cap. The packaging looks good, is leak proof and travel friendly.

Smell: Mild, floral

Texture and Consistency: This cream colored moisturizer has a creamy texture and a very runny consistency.

My Experience:

Since I have oily, acne prone, sensitive and problematic skin, I cannot tolerate anything heavy on my skin. The consistency of this moisturizer is ideal as per my skin type and does not clog my pores. It does not feel heavy or greasy at all on the skin. It gets quickly absorbed into the skin leaving a very mild, floral scent behind.

It does not leave any shine on the skin but nourishes it and makes it look soft and moisturized. It does not feel uncomfortable in any way and does not irritate my skin either. I keep my skin moisturized to maintain the natural oil balance and this one is the perfect one to go with in summers.

It does not cause any acne or oiliness on my skin. I love the fact that it contains sun protection factor in it, so I can skip a sunscreen with it whenever I am going out. I also like its slim shape which makes it easy to hold.

Just a little amount of product is enough for the skin. I also moisturize my arms and legs with it and it does not make them sweaty at all. Overall, it is a great pick for summers as it does its job very well without bothering the skin in any way.

Its moisturization lasts quite long and I hardly need re-application. However, I re-apply it whenever I feel like sniffing off its floral scent. Also, I apply it right after taking shower to let the product sink into my skin and make it feel healthier, softer and more nourished all day long.

Pros of Olivia Honey Almond Moisturizer with Sunscreen:

*Ingredients list mentioned
*Easily available
*Good packaging
*Value for money
*Doesn’t make skin dry
*Makes skin soft and smooth
*Contains sun protection factor
*Enriched with honey and almond

Cons of Olivia Honey Almond Moisturizer with Sunscreen:

*Contains Parabens
*Gives no details about SPF

Will I purchase it?

Yes. This is a really good moisturizer to go with in summers, especially for my skin type. So, I’d love to grab it once I finish it off.

Will I recommend it?

Yes. If you are also looking for a light, daily use purpose moisturizer that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, you must go with this one.

Is it worth the money?

Yes. I love the result, pricing and quantity of this product, so it is fully worth the money according to me.

My Ratings: 4.8/5

Smell: Mild, Identical to melons

Consistency: This transparent lip balm has a medium consistency.

My Experience:

This has been my go to lip balm ever since I’ve got it. First of all, I like its mild, melon like smell which is not at all overpowering and goes away within a few minutes. It has a medium consistency which allows easy and smooth application. Due to its key ingredients, it melts on room temperature and turns into oil, so I always keep it in refrigerator.

It has a tapered tip which allows easy and mess proof application. It makes the lips feel soft and hydrated after application and does not leave a lot of shine behind. It looks very natural and comfortable on the lips.

It makes the lips look nourished and soft. The moisturisation is intense and lasts quite long. When the weather is really dry, I re-apply it after around four-five hours. It heals cracked, chapped and dry lips within a few applications and prevents them from getting dry again.

The price point is just amazing and it works very effectively and quickly. It is a good lip balm to be used on lips on a daily basis to prevent them from getting dry, keep them nourished and soft and treat chapped lips.

*Guest Contribution by Brigitte Evans

Regardless of how good we look, there are times when a woman just yearns to bring a breath of fresh air in terms of her appearance. They say the only constant is change, so if everything around us is changing and evolving, including our inner selves, why shouldn’t our appearance reflect that? Perhaps you’ve gone through something life-changing and you want to cut ties with your old self, or perhaps something amazing is happening and you want to celebrate it with a whole new look. The point is, you don’t need a reason to ‘freshen up’ and shake things up, so let’s just dive in and do it!

The bold move

Coco Chanel once said that a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life, but the truth is, you don’t have to turn your life upside down in order to treat yourself to a new hairstyle. There is something about stepping out of your comfort zone when you cut your hair. It’s a bold and risky move, but once you leave that salon, you somehow feel like a brand-new person, a model strutting down a runway. Now, if you don’t want to risk it too much, in the sense that you don’t want this to turn into a disaster, try to find a haircut that is recommended for your face shape, and you’re golden. Of course, you don’t have to stop there – you can even be as wild as to try a different hair colour. In the worst possible scenario, you can always change it back if you hate it, but remember, change is good, and perhaps you’ll be dazzled by your new colour.

Re-examine and reshape

One of the features that can make or break a face are, without a doubt, brows. Granted, in the age of the brow, we have seen some overworked ones to last us a lifetime, hence, this isn’t the road we’re telling you to take. Visit your beauty salon or find one with a great reputation in the field and reshape your eyebrows so they perfectly frame and compliment your face. You could do this alone, if you’re the dexterous kind and know what shape suits you best, but why risk it when there are so many amazing professionals who can give you the Cadillac of brows?

If you don’t like it, change it

The lack of a picture-perfect smile is cause for insecurity for many people in the world, and if you’re not really keen on your smile and would truly like to change it, stop mulling it over and just take the plunge already. Australian people are known for their gorgeous white smiles, and here in the Land Down Under, we weren’t all born with it and no, it’s not Maybelline either. When there’s something left to be desired, we turn to our professionals in Melbourne for porcelain veneers and get the smile we want. And not just in Melbourne, but all over the country, a perfect smile is a must. So, invest in your choppers once, and get the smile you deserve once and for all.

Sick of that same old love

Ok, this is a Selena Gomez song, but it’s suitable for the occasion. There are certain women who own every eyeshadow palette in the world and love experimenting with different techniques and create outrageous looks. However, they’re a minority. The rest of us are too busy or lack the skills to create the looks we secretly watch on YouTube, so we take the easy route and stick to the same old routine that we know is easy to do and kind of works for us. Well, your job is to either start experimenting or visit your nearest Sephora and ask one of their makeup artists to create one glam and one everyday look for you and walk you through it. You never know which products you’ll end up falling in love with, and don’t shy away from taking them all home – you deserve this. Threat yourself. Take a chance on a new lip colour, try a liner, a different colour palette when it comes to eye shadows – live it up. After all, it all comes off at the end of the day, so why not create a new you every single day?

Last but definitely not leastIf you’re not really happy with what your current skincare products are doing for you, do some research and find the ones that will get you that naturally radiant flawless complexion you need. While you’re getting your makeup done at Sephora, use this time to ask about the skincare lines that would be amazing for your skin type or issues, and load up that bag with goodies that will bring that plumpness and glow to your skin. While we’re at skincare, and reinvention in general – do a little extra something and get a facial. You can get a nice peel and mask or get a microdermabrasion treatment – whatever the professional advises, say yes to it. This is your time to shine, so take it and don’t let go until you’re feeling like a brand-new woman.

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

I am here with another review about a new launch from Olivia and this time it is their Golden Glow Face Wash. This product has been made for radiant skin and is enriched with Gold, Chandan and Turmeric. All three of these ingredients are amazing for our skin and I was already impressed when I read the claims and ingredients list.

If you are interested in knowing how this product worked for me, will I purchase it or not, is it worth buying and what was my overall experience with it, then please keep on reading this post till the end.

Product Description: Claims:

*Suitable for all skin types
*Not tested on animals

Warning:

*Keep away from children
*For external use only

Directions of Usage: Ingredients:

Cost: Rs. 60 for 60 ml
Shelf Life: 2 years
Availability: On all local beauty stores

Packaging:

This face wash comes in an extremely soft, golden silicone tube with same colored, plastic flip cap. The tube is semi transparent which makes it convenient to see how much quantity is left. The packaging is basic yet good, light weight, sturdy, spill proof and travel friendly. The tube has all necessary product details mentioned on it.


Smell: Mild, identical to sandalwood, mesmerising
Texture and Consistency: This face wash has a smooth and creamy texture and a medium consistency.

My Experience:

This review is based upon my oily, acne prone, sensitive and problematic skin. Starting off with the smell of this face wash, I’d say it is very mesmerising but not at all overpowering. I love sandalwood for its amazing properties and love any product which has it inside as a key ingredient.

This face wash does not form a very thick or creamy lather but turns very slimy when massaged on to wet face. Its pH is balanced which does not sting the eyes if it accidentally gets in. It makes the skin appear soft, smooth, nourished and hydrated after rinsing off.

It does not the face look dry at all and adds a beautiful glow to face on regular usage. It instantly brightens out skin after usage and makes it look cleaner and better. It also controls pimple production as it has turmeric as one of the key ingredients.

It not only prevents new acne or pimples, but also reduces the existing ones. It does irritate the skin in any way and reduces redness or inflammation. It makes the skin appear so healthy from the inside that it adds a luminious radiance to the skin.

Overall, it cleans the skin properly, makes it look better in every way, nourishes it, makes it smooth and soft and makes it look radiant. It also controls oil production from the skin but does its main job very effectively, i.e. to add a glow to the skin.

Pros of Olivia Golden Glow Face Wash for Radiant Skin:

*Ingredients list mentioned
*pH balanced
*Easily available
*Good packaging
*Value for money
*Doesn’t make skin dry
*Makes skin soft and smooth
*Adds a healthy glow to the face
*Controls acne

Cons of Olivia Golden Glow Face Wash for Radiant Skin:

*None

Will I purchase it?

Yes. I love its effect on my skin and will definitely purchase it.

Will I recommend it?

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

I am here with another review about a new launch from Olivia and this time it is their Herbal Acne Repair Face Wash. This product has been made for clear skin and is enriched with Neem, Tulsi and Aloe Vera. All three of these ingredients are amazing for our skin and I was already impressed when I read the claims and ingredients list.

If you are interested in knowing how this product worked for me, will I purchase it or not, is it worth buying and what was my overall experience with it, then please keep on reading this post till the end.

Product Description: Claims:

*Suitable for all skin types
*Not tested on animals

Warning:

*Keep away from children
*For external use only

Directions of Usage: Ingredients:

Cost: Rs. 60 for 60 ml

Shelf Life: 2 years

Availability: On all local beauty stores

Packaging:

This face wash comes in an extremely soft, green silicone tube with same colored, plastic flip cap. The tube is semi transparent which makes it convenient to see how much quantity is left. The packaging is basic yet good, light weight, sturdy, spill proof and travel friendly. The tube has all necessary product details mentioned on it.

Smell: Mild, herbal

Texture and Consistency: This face wash has a smooth and creamy texture and a medium consistency.

My Experience:

This review is based upon my oily, acne prone, sensitive and problematic skin. Starting off with the smell of this face wash, I’d say it is herbal but not at all overpowering. I like herbal scents and enjoy them. Also, the smell does not last long and vanishes as soon as I wash off my face.

This face wash does not form a very thick or creamy lather but turns very slimy when massaged on to wet face. Its pH is not completely balanced due to which it slightly stings the eyes if it accidentally gets in but it is still bearable. It makes the skin appear soft, smooth, nourished and hydrated after rinsing off.

It has an astringent touch to it due to which it feels cooling and soothing on the skin. However, it does not leave a burning sensation or any sort of irritation behind. It starts working effectively from day one. First of all, it calms down the inflammation on the skin caused by acne.

It also starts to dry out the pimple/acne without making the face look dry at all. Within three days, it eliminates the acne and then starts working off on healing and reducing its scar. It adds a beautiful glow to the face on regular usage. It instantly brightens out skin after usage and makes it look cleaner and better.

It controls pimple production very effectively due to its amazing key ingredients. It not only prevents new acne or pimples, but also reduces the existing ones. It does not disturb the natural oil balance of the skin and makes it look healthy and clean.

Pros of Olivia Herbal Acne Repair Face Wash:

*Ingredients list mentioned
*Easily available
*Good packaging
*Value for money
*Doesn’t make skin dry
*Makes skin soft and smooth
*Controls, treats and repairs acne

Cons of Olivia Herbal Acne Repair Face Wash:

*pH not completely balanced

Will I purchase it?

Yes. I love its effect on my skin and will definitely purchase it.

Will I recommend it?

Yes. If you are also looking for an effective, good for daily use face wash which clears up your acne, treats and prevents them, go and grab it as soon as possible.

Is it worth the money?

Yes. I love the result, pricing and quantity of this product, so it is fully worth the money according to me.

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good..

Today I am going to review a new launch from Olivia, i.e. their Ultra Fresh Fairness Face Wash. This face wash is enriched with the goodness of Milk, Licorice and Saffron. If you are interested in knowing how it worked for me, will I grab it again, is it worth buying or not, then please keep on reading this post till the end. Product Description:

Claims:

*Suitable for all skin types
*Not tested on animals

Warnings:

*Keep away from children
*For external use only

Directions of Usage: Ingredients:

Cost: Rs. 60 for 60 ml

Shelf Life: 2 years

Availability: On all local beauty stores as well as online

Packaging:

This face wash comes in an extremely soft, pink colored silicone tube with same colored, plastic flip cap. The tube is sermi transparent which makes it convenient to see how much quantity is left. The packaging is basic yet good, light weight, sturdy, spill proof and travel friendly. The tube has all necessary product details mentioned on it.

Smell: Mild, artificial scent, Slightly identical to melons

Texture and Consistency: This face wash has a rich and creamy texture and a medium consistency.

My Experience:

This review is based upon my oily, acne prone, sensitive and problematic skin. Starting off with the smell of this product, I’d say it is good and mild. This face wash is really smooth and slimy when applied on wet face. It turns into a thick and foaming lather just like Ponds White Beauty Daily Spotless Lightening Facial Foam.

It does not irritate the skin at all and once I am finished massaging enough, I rinse off my face with plain water. It makes the skin instantly brightened up and look fresh & clean. It removes excess oil from the skin but does not disturb the natural oil balance of the skin or make it dry.

Its pH is not balanced due to which it stings the eyes if it accidentally gets in. It makes the skin look refreshed, rejuvenated and nourished. It also makes it feel soft and hydrated. It controls oil production for around four-five hours on a hot day which I think is enough for my skin type.

Upon regular usage, I have found that it reduces acne spots, pigmentation and evens out skin tone. It also makes the skin look radiant, healthy and brighter. It deep cleanses the facial pores without irritating the skin in any way.

Overall, it is a good face wash to be used on daily basis, especially if you are looking for a mild one which cleanses well, removes oil and dirt and makes the skin appear brighter and healthier without looking dry or flaky.

Pros of Olivia Ultra Fresh Fairness Face Wash:

*Ingredients list mentioned
*Value for money
*Easily available
*Not expensive
*Deep cleanses skin and makes it look soft, hydrated and healthy
*Brightens skin and lightens pigmentation/blemishes
*Doesn’t make skin dry
*Good packaging
*Paraben free

Cons of Olivia Ultra Fresh Fairness Face Wash:

*pH not balanced

Will I purchase it?

Yes. This is not only a very budget friendly face wash but also very effective and worth buying.

Will I recommend it?

Yes. If you are looking for a good, daily use purpose face wash for evening out your skin tone and make it appear brighter, you must give it a try.

Is it worth the money?

Yes. I like how it works on my skin without causing any problems, so it is totally worth the money according to me.

My Ratings: 5/5

Since I have oily skin, they sent me this variant but they also have one meant for dry skin. This variant is clay based and can also be used by people having normal skin type.

Caffeine based products are not only tempting to use but also have some amazing effects on hair and skin due to their anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. If you are interested in knowing how this product worked for me, will I purchase it or not and is it worth the money, then please keeo on reading this post till the end.

Rinse off thoroughly with cold water to close the pores and clean the face. Pat dry and follow it with the application of a light cream or face gel to hydrate your skin.

Cost: Rs. 599 for 50 ml

Shelf Life: 24 months

Availability: Official Website, Amazon, Nykaa

Packaging:

Since I received this product in Glamego box, I have a 25 ml sample sized tub with me. The tub is made up of fibre plastic and is transparent. It has a black plastic screw cap and a white lid inside to prevent any sort of mess.

This is how the original packaging looks like. Honestly, I do not like tub packaging at all as it is unhygienic.

Smell: Mild, amazing scent of chocolate

Texture and Consistency: This scrub has a rich and creamy texture and a thick consistency. It has medium sized, non abrsaive scrubbing granules inside it.

My Experience:

This review is based upon my oily, acne prone, sensitive and problematic skin. First of all, I love this mask because it has chocolate in it. I feel like eating it each time I apply it. Although I have tried many chocolate/coffee based scrubs/masks in the past, this is definitely the best scent ever.

It smells so delicious that I feel like licking my face and it is really hard to control myself when I apply it on my nose. This mask has a thick but very balm-like consistency which makes it very easy to apply and spread on the skin.

The amazing smell is not only tempting but also acceptable. It is not at all strong or overpowering. This mask feels little cooling on the skin which I again enjoy. Due to its clay base, it does not irritate my skin at all.

Once it is completely dried, I slightly wet my face with water and start massaging in gentle, circular and upwards motions. Since it has scrubbing granules in it, I keep on massaging and exfoliating for at least three minutes.

I keep on adding water in between as required. Once I think I have exfoliated the skin enough, I wash my face with plain water and pat it dry. Due to Argan Oil and Vitamin E, it instantly makes the skin look nourished and does not make it dry at all.

On top of that, it also does not cause any problem to my oily skin. It neither makes it look more oily nor irritates it. It removes dead skin cells and black heads very effectively without causing any abrasion. In just three uses, I noticed that it brightens out the skin and starts working on reducing pigmentation.

It does not cause any problem or side effects to my sensitive skin and makes the skin even toned upon regular usage. I love exfoliating my knees, elbows and knuckles with it as it cleans, brightens, exfoliates and nourishes them.

It removes the impurities very effectively and makes the skin tight and intact without feeling dry. It gets rid of excess sebum on the nose area but does not disturb the natural oil balance of the skin. It also adds a beautiful and healthy glow to the face.

Pros of MCaffeine Choco Caffeine Glow Face Mask:

*Mesmerising, mild chocolate scent
*Removes dead skin cells very effectively
*Evens out skin tone
*Reduces pigmentation
*Doesn’t make skin dry
*Paraben free
*Not tested on animals
*Causes no side effects or irritation
*Ingredients list mentioned
*Value for money

Cons of MCaffeine Choco Caffeine Glow Face Mask:

*Only available online
*Unhygienic tub packaging

Will I purchase it?

Yes. I like how this product works on me, so I’ll definitely make a purchase again.

Will I recommend it?

Yes. If you also share the same skin type as me and are looking for an effective, cruelty free and caffeine based scrub mask, then you must give this product a try.

Is it worth the money?

Yes. It works just as claimed and is completely worth the money.

My Ratings: 4.6/5
