The sunscreen comes in a the patented Lakme sunscreen packaging. The dark yellow tube instantly reminds me of the Lakme Sunscreen that I used to use in my college days. The packaging is travel friendly and you can carry it anywhere with no fear of leakage or spillage.
The lotion is white in color and has perfect consistency. It is neither very thick nor very runny. The scent is mild and pleasant. I simply take a small amount of sunscreen and apply it all over my face after moisturizer. It applies nicely and gets absorbed quickly. It does not feel heavy or sticky but is very light. It does not give whitish cast unlike other Lakme Sunscreens. Though Lakme says it is matte but I feel it gives a nice dewy look to the skin without making it oily or greasy. You must apply sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out in the sun.
I had used it a lot in this summer season and I have not faced issues of sun tan or sun burn. It has SPF 50 PA+++ which is quite broad spectrum. It contains cucumber extracts and vitamin B3 that moisturize the skin.

Today I am going to review one of my recent love- Myglamm 3 in 1 Highlighter, Blush and Bronzer. I had been to my brother in law's marriage and literally this palette helped me a lot in getting ready in just few minutes. When you have a baby, you need a makeup quickie!
The palette comes in a simple white cardboard box with Myglamm logo in golden print. The actual product comes in a beautiful golden, white plastic palette with glossy finish. The packaging is literally very pretty and looks classy on my vanity. It is travel friendly and I carried it almost everywhere with me and it was not broken. There is also a pallet sized mirror which is very clear and helps you to do your makeup efficiently. I wish there was also a brush so make sure you carry one whilst traveling.
The palette includes a highlighter, blush and bronzer. I got the shade 'Show Stopper'. The highlighter is pearly whites in color with shimmery finish. The shimmers are very fine and does not look weird on face. The highlighter instantly gives a natural glow to the skin and would look flattering on fair to medium skin tones.
The blush is peach in color that looks really natural and gives a beautiful flush of color to the cheeks. It is perfect to be used during daytime without looking over the top. The finish is matte and the blush can also be used as an eye shadow. It would suit all skin tones.
The bronzer is light brown in color and looks pretty when applied under the blush. It can also be used as a contour powder if you have fair skin tone. It is also matte and perfect to use at any time. I also use to contour and define my eyes.
All the shades are pigmented and you can intensify them to get a glam look.
The staying power is also good and my skin looks fresh for at least 5-6 hours. It is very light and multi functional palette!!!
If you have dark skin tone then you can try the other shade 'Game Face'.
- Can create natural to intense looks.
- Good pigmentation.
- Highlighter and bronzer are great for fair to medium skin tones.
- Blush would suit all skin tones.
- The mirror is of very good size.
- Not shimmery or glittery.
- Blush and bronzer are of matte finish.
- Price is good for the palette.
- Cruelty free!

I have a baby and it helped me a lot in getting ready in wedding in few minutes. I would definitely recommend it to all girls with fair to medium skin tones!
What do I look for when buying baby wipes? They are thick, moist and most importantly alcohol free. When I saw Softsens Baby Wipes with all the good description, I thought of trying it out. Read my review to know if it's worth trying or not.

It is neither very strong nor very light. The fabric of the baby wipe is thick and soft that are very mild and gentle to the baby's skin. It is of good size and I need only one wipe each time to clean my baby's bottom.

This is the first time I am trying products from the brand- Life & Pursuits. Their products contain certified organic ingredients. Today I am going to review Life & Pursuits Soak In Goodness Ultra Light Moisturizing Lotion.
The moisturizing lotion comes in a opaque white squeezable plastic tube with all the information printed over it. I loved the 3D print on the tube that makes it different from other brands. The tube can be easily carried around in bag without any fear of leakage.
The lotion is slightly yellow in color with mild fragrance. The fragrance is pure though I literally could not detect what it smells like. The consistency is quite thin and gets applied into the skin well without leaving greasy look behind. Make sure you blend it in circular motion to let the lotion aborb into the skin!
As the name says the lotion is very light. I have oily, combination skin and it is super light for my skin. My skin still feels dry after using it but if I take more quantity it makes my skin soft and nourished. I think I will use it in monsoon season when the weather is humid.
Life & Pursuits Soak In Goodness Ultra Light Moisturizing Lotion is meant for both face and body. I have used it as a body lotion too and it makes skin soft and hydrated. It contains all certified organic ingredients and is completely safe for the skin. I have been using it for the last 10 days and it keeps my skin acne free.

Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder comes in an ombre green and rose gold cardboard box with all the information printed over it.

After a long time, I am back with nail arts again. This time I did a yummy summer fruit nail art and I chose strawberry! Born Pretty nail art stickers are very easy to apply and you can get many variants in it.
Each sticker is made of thick plastic which lay flat on nails and has a 3D effect to it. It doesn’t tend to stick to itself upon application. I use tweezers to pull the stickers off the sheet and apply them onto my nails. I then put a little pressure to make sure the stickers are stuck well and won’t peel off. The stickers look very pretty and adorable on my nails. They are quite lightweight and I don’t feel like I have anything on my nails. It takes only 10 minutes to apply the stickers on all your 10 fingers. The stickers are super easy to apply and it doesn’t require you to be a nail art expert. They last for a good 5-6 days without wearing off or sliding around the nails. I always apply a top coat as per the instructions to make the effect last longer.
The best thing I liked about these stickers are their designs. Strawberries in heart and line!
- Easy to apply!
- The stickers look extremely pretty on nails!
- Lasts long!
- Feels light on the nails!
- You get so many shapes of strawberries in 1 sheet!
- Reasonably priced!
- Born Pretty Store provides worldwide shipping!
- I wish they were a bit brighter!
Overall, as always I love Born pretty Nail Art stuffs and I would highly recommend you to check their new nail art stickers!
Wet wipes are must haves for me. I carry them with me everywhere. I use them for cleansing my oily skin especially during summer, sometimes for wiping hands and my makeup brushes and most importantly for removing my makeup. Today I am going to review Freshca Refreshing Wet Wipes that I have been loving a lot lately.
Freshca Refreshing Wet Wipes come in 2 packaging- box and zip lock. I have both of them. If you travel a lot you must buy zip locks and if you use the wipes at home or office hen boxes are very convenient.
The wet wipes come in 3 variants- orchid, lemon and floral. All the variants are superb and I honestly can't choose one as favorite. The fragrance is oh so calming and soothing. It is not like those head aching artificial fragrance that most wipes have. It is very mild and soothing to the senses.
Freshca Refreshing Wet Wipes have very soft and thick material that do not wear whilst usage. You can easily use one wipe for your entire face. It is properly wet and does not dry quickly.
The best thing I liked about these wipes is their sachet packaging. Normally wipes get dry when you open the package again and again but here you are not faced this issue. Each wipe is packed in separate sachet. You can even drop 2-3 sabers in your bag when you step out.
The wipes are completely safe for the skin. I have acne prone skin and they do not break me out. They are alcohol free and do not dry out the skin.
The box contains 50 wipes and zip lock contains 20 wipes!
- Thoughtful packaging. Each wipe in separate pack.
- The material of the wipe is soft and gentle to the skin
- Mind blowing fragrance.
- pH balanced.
- Alcohol free, silicone free and paraben free.
- Superb for traveling.
- Best wipes for removing makeup.
- Essential during summer season.
- Reasonably priced!
Overall I am very happy with Freshca Refreshing Wet Wipes. They are indeed very refreshing and gentle to the skin. I loved all the variants and would highly recommend them to everyone. I am sure you will love them.
Do you use wet wipes?
