Bliscent is a brand I always had thought of trying but never got a chance, all thanks to some impromptus shopping online as well as offline. I received Bliscent Hot Chocolate Lip balm and Pineapple Kiss lip scrub in two VanityCask Boxes. So today am going to review both these lip care products. We often fail to scrub our lips but we shouldn't skip doing that. Okay, onto the review now.
Both the products are housed in SAN jars which have a double lip plus are very sturdy. I sometimes keep on dropping my stuff and these beauties were strong to resist the drops without a single damage. The products carry ingredients list as well as price on lables, which are in bottom of the jars.
The lip scrub is good and has very small sugar granules so as to exfoliate the tender lip skin. The lip scrub does a decent job of scrubbing effect without being too harsh. Due care is to be taken so as not to scrub too harshly as it might hurt. On one occasion I had a mild irritatuon on my lips and this scrub burned that particular area a lot. Nonetheless the fragrance or flavour of the product is amazing and feels like real pineapple, like real, freshly cut pineapple.
Coming to the lip balm, again it's fragrance is amazing, like fresh host chocolate. The lip balm is very moisturising and soothing for chapped lips. It instantly puckers up the lips making them soft, smooth and supple. The moisturising effects last upto one day if you don't lick your lips often or are not into applying lip balms often. This is the best part I feel as I tend to forget reapplication of lip balms.
Now the main part, both the products use lip safe flavour oil, I don't know if it is oil or just flavour or just a chemical. Even though the brand mentions it lip safe, I don't know who marked it is as lip safe (if you know what I mean). According to me mimicking a real fruit or chocolate fragrance can be done only via a chemical. But if we need some lip smacking flavors like hot chocolate or pineapple in our products we have no option other than using some lip safe chemicals. Overall speaking the products are good to use if you don't mind using some lip safe chemicals!
Price, Shelf life and Availability - Lip balm 150 INR for 5 gms, lip scrub 200 INR for 10 gms. Shelf life of lip balm mentioned as 6 months. Avukabon Bliscent website
I really like the cute, sturdy, double lid jars. I like the efficiency of the products as well as the fragrance. If you are someone who is into total synthetic, chemical free lip care products then Bliscent lip care products are not for you. But if you don't mind any chemicals and are a sucker for fragrance of hot chocolate and fruits then these are just perfect for your taste. I would rather skip repurchase due to the lip safe flavour oils used in them.
Another month brings in new VanityCask Box. VanityCask box is a luxurious beauty subscription box which allows us to try some luxurious brand products before trying out the full sizes. Let's head start to the curation story and the contents.
Get rid of all your beauty woes with VanityCask's Shades of April Edition! Boost your gorgeous skin with Sova Chamomile and Coorgi Narangi Body wash. Brighten up your lackluster skin with Mcaffine Uplift Trance Face Cream. Indulge and pamper your skin with Mond'sub 3D Pearl Mask with Vitamin C and Deep Brightening and Whitening Facial Mask and The Nature's Co Cool Cucumber Face Wash. Finally, get the ultra shiny glamorous and sensational nails you have always wanted with Myglamm Two Of Your Kind - Long Lasting Enamel Duo.
So am not going to talk about the ingredients and how well the products fare and what all they cost, I would like to write this post a little bit differently this time.
With the summer being around, The Nature's Co Cool Cucumber Face Wash is a perfect product for the VanityCask Box. The body wash from Sova, a luxurious brand, is also a good pick keeping summers in mind. The Mcaffine Uplift Trance Cream is a light weight cream which gets absorbed easily into the skin without leaving an oily or greasy residue, this again is a perfect pick. The Mond'sub masks are also amazing keeping in mind the suntan and scorching summer in mind. The Myglamm Long Lasting Enamel Duo shades are quite good keeping the theme in mind.
The VanityCask Boxes, are packed in a sturdy black box which are very useful and reusable for storing your skincare or makeup or haircare products. They make a perfect travel companion and not to mention the pink, silk potli bag. What I would like to suggest to VanityCask Box team would be including a variety of products from different brands as well variety of products. From past three months we have received the Nail Enamel Duo and mask sheets. There are many other unexplored brands and types of products like Facial serum or Lip serum or some other interesting types. Including those might create a curious component for the subscribers. The brands choice and all is entirely good, especially The Nature's Co, Sova and Mond'sub brands. What is lacking is different type of products, something exciting and worth the 999 INR price tag.
According to the Instagram polls am posting an empties post first. I am so into powder cleansers that I ended up using two of them both are my favorites. Let's head to the post
Bliscent Daily Cleanser
I like the subtle fragrance of the cleanser, however I don't like the addition of essential oils to cleanser which I end up using twice or thrice a day. Overall a good cleanser to start with the powder cleansers.
Ida Naturals Natural Skin Glow Pack
My all time favourite and a cleanser which makes the skin glow instantly. I might repurchase this once I empty all of my powder cleansers.
TNC Multi Vitamin Massage Cream
I love love love this massage cream. It's amazing chocolate fragrance not only make you feel good but the cream also works from within to give you a youthful skin. The cream also reduces acne marks drastically. I am going to stock up on this soon.
Biotique Honey Gel Refreshing Foaming Face Wash
I love the refreshing fragrance of this face wash but at the same time I also love how gentle yet effective the cleanser is. I would like to try a new variant next time.
Uvmed Tinted Sunscreen
I am currently using this sunscreen even when am indoors. The sunscreen is good with SPF 50 and has suited me well. It goes well with the W2 Peach Moisturiser as well as any light weight moisturiser. I have already stocked up two tubes of this sunscreen.
Auravedic Anti Blemish Face Mask
My holy grail face mask for deep cleansing and acne reducing. I have another big tub of this mask to empty and am not stocking it up again.
So that was my tiny empties list. Hope to empty products over a couple of coming weeks. Till then you all take care and enjoy life.
My undying love for powder cleansers is increasing day by day with each new cleanser am trying. The more variety am trying the more am convinced about the benefits of powder cleansers. Today we will be talking about Bliscent Daily Cleanser which I had received in one of the VanityCask Boxes.
Brand Claims and Ingredients
I love the packaging, classy and simple at the same time. The packaging carries all the product information with it. I like the spill proof extra lid with the tub.
The product is majorly white in colour with some light pink particles into it. The product is grainy in texture wherein we can find while rolled oats too. I couldn't use the cleanser nicely due to the big oats particles, wish they were a little bit milled. The fragrance of the cleanser is exotic and is due to the Frankisense essential oil in it. Once mixed with water the cleanser forms a smooth paste but when we try applying it to our face, it keeps on falling.
The cleanser does the job of cleansing very perfectly while leaving a smooth and soft skin. It removes dirt, sweat as well as excess oil. It gives a hydrated look to the skin while making it fresh and clean. Due to it's slightly grainy texture it acts as a mild scrub too. It's a good cleanser if you are looking for a budget friendly one, however I don't like the addition of essential oils in a daily cleanser given the fact that I end up using powder cleansers three times a day now.
Price, Shelf life and Availability - 350 INR for 75 gms, Available on bliscent.com
As a sucker of powder cleansers I love using the Bliscent Daily Cleanser. But if you are new to powder cleansers then this might disappoint you in terms of fragrance or in case of product texture falling down while applying the cleanser. I also like to avoid essential oils in cleansers, as I use them thrice a day. If you like using powder cleansers then go for it.
Long back I had tried W2 Facial Kit and it has given me a glowing skin. As usual I forgot to review the facial kit on my blog. So when I received some products from the brand I was really excited to use and review them. So let's get started with the review. Also let me tell you all I have used the W2 Ivory Peach Moisturiser for one month evedyday during day and sometimes at night.
Brand claims - Why stay content with dull and dry skin when you can look like peaches-and-cream instead ?
A natural source of Vitamins A, C, K, Mg,Beta Carotene, Peach removes dark spots and dark circles naturally. It also fights and prevents acne and gives protecton against UV rays. Combined with the rare species of mushroom Tricholoma Matsutake, a 100% natural skin-whitening and anti-ageing agent, this lotion, true to its name, will leave you with a peaches-and-cream complexion.
I am not going to talk about the packaging, as I have a lot to tell you about the effectiveness of the product.
The product is milky white in colour and has a little runny consistency. It is neither thick nor thin in consistency. The product gets dispensed easily and I need just 2 pumps for my face and neck. The product gets absorbed easily and even works good underneath a SPF (I use UVMed SPF 50). The moisturiser doesn't feel greasy or oily on the skin and sinks instantly into the skin.
Now coming to the effectiveness of the moisturiser, I am taken a back by it's performance. I experience 1-2 breakouts each month as my acne is hormonal. So I don't expect any product to prevent my acne 100%. But this moisturiser after using for one month, I experienced zero breakouts, it prevented even the hormonal acne which I get no matter what I do. Also the moisturiser gets absorbed easily into the skin and immediately gives a plump and even toned skin. Sometimes the I add 2-3 drops of Prakrta Serum in the moisturiser and still the moisturiser doesn't feel heavy. I was surprised by this performance of the moisturiser also.
I cannot say anything regarding the anti aging and UV protection of the moisturiser, I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles on the face and I use a separate SPF on top of a moisturiser during day.

Price, Shelf Life and Availability - 350 INR for 100 ml with a shelf life of 3 years. Available on Amazon, Why wait website (currently having a 20% off on brand website).
Overall speaking I have found my holy grail moisturiser which not only prevents my hormonal acne but also gives me plump and even toned skin. I am sure to repurchase this one. Even if I try some other day moisturisers, I might keep coming back to this one. I would highly recommend W2 Ivory Peach Moisturiser for acne prone skin which also works great for beauties who follow layering of Skincare products.
