Gerard Cosmetics Review | Lipsticks, Lipgloss, Settings Sprays, Illuminating Cream 


Hello everybody, recently Gerard Cosmetics have sent me a PR kit. They have asked me to choose from their website, so I’ve chosen the GC LOVE  GOLD BOX, Mini Slay All Day Collection (Garden Party), BB Plus Illumination Cream (Grace). Want to know which products I loved the most? and which products I did not like at all? then keep on reading till the end. I’ll be providing short in-depth reviews on each product.

Gerard Cosmetics GC LOVE GOLD BOX Review
Mystery box has been quite a thing since Jeffree Star launched his mystery boxes. After watching a couple of unboxing videos of GC LOVE GOLD BOXes, I wanted to try it on my own. So, what better opportunity could have been when Gerard Cosmetics asked me to choose the products on my own.  

There were three mystery boxes to choose from,

  • GC LOVE GOLD BOX ($39)
  • GC LOVE PLATINUM BOX ($69)
  • GC LOVE DIAMOND BOX ($149)

Since I got $96 as a store credit, so I thought of opting the GC LOVE GOLD BOX.

WHAT I GOT IN MY GC LOVE GOLD BOX?
I was quite happy with the number of products that I’ve received in the GC LOVE GOLD BOX, like this $39 mystery box contained $110 value products, BUT I did not like the shades of the lip products. These mystery boxes are not available now, so I’ll link down all the products that I have received. You can use my code IBB to get 30% off at Gerard Cosmetics
  1. Slay All Day Setting Spray Mini (Lemongrass) – $16
  2. Lip Pencil (Peachy Keen) – $16
  3. Lipstick (London Fog) – $19
  4. Supreme Lip Cream (Wild Berry Tart) – $16
  5. Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss (Sugar Mama) – $24
  6. Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick (Adam & Eve) – $20 [Not listed on their site]
  7. MetalMatte Liquid Lipstick (Grape Crush) – $20

You can use my code IBB to get 30% off at Gerard Cosmetics

Overall The whole value of the box was $39 and I have received 7 products which totaled up to $131, which was 3 times more than the value of the box. So, if you are willing to try Gerard Cosmetics products but don’t want to spend more money, then mystery boxes are good investments, but you’ll have to keep a check that you might not like the shades that you receive. 
MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON BOX:
Most of the shades washed me out. I only loved the Supreme Lip Cream in the shade ‘Wild Berry Tart’ and the Slay All Day Setting Spray in ‘Lemongrass’. The Lip Pencil, Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss and Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick were in shades which totally washed me out. Lipstick in ‘London Fog’ and MetalMatte Liquid Lipstick ‘Grape Crush’ are totally not up to my ally, I don’t wear these kinds of shades but will try to incorporate for my Instagram Feed. I do not like the shades of the products but I do love the formula. I felt like they wanted to incorporate all those shades which were not selling well, so they have incorporated these shades in the mystery box.
Also, I’d like to mention that the lights in the Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss was not functioning.
If anyone from Gerard Cosmetics is reading this, I urge them to include an option where the user can at least mention about their skin tone, so that the GC team can at least include those shades which will suit their skin tone.  
WAS THE GC LOVE GOLD BOX WORTH THE MONEY?
  • If I look at value and number of the products I have received, then I feel like investing in a GC LOVE GOLD BOX is worth it. 
  • But if you are someone like me who is very picky with the shades they wear, then investing in a mystery box does not seem like a good idea, as in this case, I have received lipsticks and lipgloss which I might not wear as the shades do not compliment my skin.

Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks Review:
Since I’ve received almost all the lip products, hence I’d like to review the Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks, Lip Pencil and Lipgloss
Left to Right– Supreme Lip Cream (Wild Berry Tart), Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss (Sugar Mama), Lipstick (London Fog), MetalMatte Liquid Lipstick (Grape Crush), Lip Pencil (Peachy Keen), Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick (Adam & Eve)
Gerard Cosmetics Supreme Lip Cream Review – Wild Berry Tart
Wild Berry Tart is a pretty berry toned lip cream which has a juicy appearance and smells good at the same time. The packaging is very luxe with a gold cap and a doe-foot applicator. I really loved the shade. It is one of my favorite shades out of the lot.
It has an ultra-hydrating, mousse formula which is very pigmented at the same time. This lip cream gives an opaque finish in one swipe only. It is very comfortable on the lips, and will intensely moisturize at the same time. Since it has a mousse-y, creamy formula, it is not transfer proof.
Gerard Cosmetics Lip Pencil Review – Peachy Kin
Peachy Kin is a very pigmented, creamy but longlasting lip liner. It is a perfect peach for people who are fair and pale. This lip liner totally washes me out. But I loved the formula, it has a matte finish but I wish I got any other shade which would have complimented my skin tone. 
Gerard Cosmetics Color Your Smile Lighted Lipgloss Review – Sugar Mama
Sugar Mama is a pale pink lipgloss, that you can wear it on your own or use it on top of any lipstick. Since this shade washes me out, I use a dark pink lipstick underneath and use it to lighten the color. This lip gloss is quite pigmented and is thick in consistency.
I freaking love the packaging, it even contains a mirror on the lipstick tube and lights on the cap. But sadly the lights on my gloss are not functioning. 
Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick Review – London Fog
London Fog is a cool toned grey shade which is totally relatable to its name. It is a satin finish lipstick which applies smoothly. This lipstick is a normal bullet lipstick but the packaging is to die for. It comes in a gold, good quality bulette lipstick packaging. I totally love the vibe of Gerard Cosmetics’ packaging.
But the color is totally not my style. It is a freaking cool-toned grey. I can totally wear it for a good Instagram post though.

Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Review – Adam & Eve
Adam & Eve is a nude shade with peach undertones. It is one of the best liquid lipstick formula I’ve ever tried. This shade washes me out but I freaking love the formula. It has a thin formula which spreads evenly and does not dry out your lips
The packaging is pretty too with frosted glass and gold cap. This lipstick is transfer proof and also waterproof.
Gerard Cosmetics MetalMatte Liquid Lipstick – Grape Crush
Grape Crush is a metallic purple lipstick with fine metallic shimmers. I totally use it as an eyeliner, it looks great as an eyeliner. MetalMatte Liquid Lipstick has a thick formula which is budge-proof, waterproof and stays all day long, It is very difficult to remove. I used my Nivea Skin Breathe Micellar Rose Water to remove while swatching it but it literally stained on my hands.
Gerard Cosmetics BB Plus Illumination Creme Review – Grace
Grace is a very pretty pearl shade with golden undertones to it. BB Plus Illumination Cream is basically a strobe cream mixed with anti-aging properties like a BB cream. This product is versatile, you can wear it alone or use it underneath your foundation. You get 47.9g of product for $36. This product is quite comparable to Wet n Wild Photofocus Dewy Face Primer.
It contains fine micro pearl particles which give a very pretty glow to your face. The fact that it comes with a pump is a bonus. I found this illuminating cream a little hydrating, you will definitely need to set it down if you are using as a highlighter.

This illuminating cream will give you a popping highlighted look. If you are searching for an illuminating primer/base, then it will be a great base/ illuminating primer for makeup.

Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray Review
Mini Slay All Day Collection (Garden Party) is a $48 value kit that retails for $19.25. Currently, I could not find it on the site. But it does contain 3 mini Slay All Day Setting Spray – Lemongrass, Peach and Green Tea. All the mini Slay All Day Setting Sprays retails individually for $16 and contains 28.6g of product.
These setting sprays gives a  soothing sensation which refreshes you and sets your makeup into place. I love the fact that they smell exactly like their variant. Mini Slay All Day Setting Sprays are great for travel
They set your face and gives a dewy finish to your skin. I’d totally recommend these setting sprays and make sure to buy them in buddles whenever they are back in stock.

You can use my code IBB to get 30% at Gerard Cosmetics

What To Buy From Gerard Cosmetics?
I’d highly recommend the Slay All Day Setting Sprays, Supreme Lip Cream in Wild Berry Tart, Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick and their Lip Pencils.

Finding the right bra online can be a task if you don’t know what are the different types of lingerie that are available. An Indian girl or a woman normally shy away and don’t really ask the person at the store regarding their problem. So, buying bra online can totally solve that problem. But you do need to have the right knowledge about what to wear underneath so as to avoid any wardrobe malfunction. Here’s a quick lingerie guide that will help you to shop for your required undergarments online. 





If you need help regarding how to measure your bra size, then you can see a lot of guides which will guide you to choose your correct size.


T-shirt Bra:

T-shirt bra normally has a seamless finish. They are padded so as to avoid any wardrobe malfunction as T-shirts normally have a thin material. You can wear a T-shirt bra under your T-shirts and also underneath a kurta/kurti.

Sports Bra:

Sports Bra has a lot of benefits and provides your bosom with much support that no other bras can provide. Whenever you are off to the gym or playing a sport, you must wear a sports bra in order to gain the required support which is needed. 


Strapless Bra:

Strapless bras are great whenever you are wearing a strapless tops or dress. You can even wear a strapless bra with off-shoulder or cold-shoulder tops/dresses. But often strapless bras which are not of good quality tend to slide off slightly so make sure to buy a good quality strapless bra online. I’d recommend that you buy strapless bra online from Zivame.

Full Coverage Bra:

If you have a curvy body with a larger bosom, then full coverage bras are for you. Full coverage bra will provide the ultimate support to your bosom and are also available in larger sizes.


Convertible Bra:

Convertible bras have straps which can be converted to a criss-cross or halter style. You can wear this type of bra for a tank top or halter neck top/dress.

Backless or Stick On Bras:

Often women tend to avoid backless dresses or blouse with a deep back as they don’t know about the right lingerie to pair it with. Backless Bras have transparent straps in them which provides support and also does the job. Stick On bras do not have any strap but have a sticky surface on the cups which you can directly stick on.


Bralettes:

Bralettes can be worn as a crop top or also as a bra underneath a sheer top. Both ways, it looks cute. If you have a dress or top with a deep neck, pair it with a bralette underneath, so it will solve the issue of the deep neck and will appear cute as well. (Check out how Celebs style their bralettes)


Bras Trending Now:


Nowadays, Bras with pretty backs are trending quite a lot. These types of bras normally have a pretty back with lace detailing or criss-cross detailing. You can totally wear them with a halter neck top or dress to add an element to your outfit. Another type of bra trending now is the Caged bra. It can be worn under sheer tops or also as a crop top.


I hope this Lingerie Guide will help you in choosing the correct bra online for your different purpose. If you have any questions or queries, you can directly DM me on Instagram @indianbudgetbeautyblog

According to British English, a purse is “a small pouch of leather or plastic used for carrying money”, whereas according to American English, a purse is basically a handbag. A purse can add an element to any woman’s outfit. It can be a sling bag, tote bag, evening clutches, hand-held bags, etc. Purses help you carry your essentials and also make you look cute and fashionable. These are the essential 4 purses that every woman should own in her closet. 


Sling Bag or Cross Body Bag:
A sling bag or a cross body bag is a must or a basic necessity. You can literally throw it on and go out for grocery shopping or even out for the movies in it. If you know me from the start, you’d know that I’m a huge bag hoarder. I’m obsessed with bags that have chain straps and looks cute as well.

Styling Tips:

Nowadays sling bags with chain straps are trending, which even looks quite classy. You can either dress up an outfit with a sling bag or dress it down, it all depends on your styling

  • A black, white or a tan colored sling bag will go with any outfit. 
  • But you can even go for sling bags with a pop of color to it, to add an element to your outfit. 
Tote Bags:
Tote bags are very versatile. They are the ‘casual’ handbags or purses. Tote bags are large, have huge space in them so that you can carry them with you anywhere from college to the office to even a day out with friends. They have two handles for you to carry them effortlessly.

Styling Tips:
  • Tote bags come in different textures, you can either go for the classic canvas or denim fabrics, or you can try out the leather or faux leather tote bags. 
  • If you want to experiment, you can try out tote bags with graphic details and pair it with a T-shirt and jeans or shorts.

Clutches or Evening Clutches:
Clutches or evening clutches are timeless pieces one can invest on. There are numerous clutches available in the market, you can go for the simple silver, gold or black clutches, or experiment with some quirky clutches that are trending nowadays. 

Styling Tips:
  • If you going out for a formal event, try to use a plain gold, silver or black clutch. 
  • For a wedding, go for subtle shades like rose gold, gold, silver or those clutches that have rhinestones attached to it. 
  • If you are going out to a club or a party, try to experiment with your clutch bag. Go for quirky items that make you stand out



Handheld Bags or Top Handle Bags:
Handheld bags or top handle bags bag/purse that have a top handle where a person can carry on their arms. Usually, these bags also come with a sling attached which can be removed or inserted as preferred.

Styling Tips:
  • For a formal or office event, try to go for pastel shades, or you can try out tan or burgundy colored bags.
  • For a date or to the movies, go for a pop of color which will complement your outfit.
  • You can also experiment by choosing a bag whose strap is of a different material.

These are the minimum 4 purses every woman should own at least in their closet which can be styled for any occasion. Hope you liked the blog post, if you have any queries, you can directly DM me on Instagram @indianbudgetbeautyblog

What is a water-based moisturizer? This question might arise a lot of time. Moisturizer is an essential step of skincare that no one should skip. No matter what your skin type is, you must include a moisturizer in your daily routine. Be it an oil-based moisturizer, or a water-based moisturizer, you must choose one which is beneficial for your skin in the longer run. 



What Is a Water based moisturizer?
A Water based moisturizer is lightweight in consistency, contains water (aqua) as its first ingredient and are non-greasy in texture. Water-based moisturizer will help to improve your skin. It is faster in getting absorbed into your skin than oil-based moisturizer since it has a thinner consistency. It has fewer side effects than an oil-based moisturizer. It is less likely to clog your pores due to its light consistency. 

A water-based moisturizer may also contain glycerin and tocopheryl acetate or tocopherol (Vitamin E).  Glycerine provides the moisture and Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant which helps to soothe irritation and prevents sun damage. Vitamin E also helps in locking the moisturize in your skin while replenishing its nutrients. Some water-based moisturizers may even contain Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronate Sodium). Hyaluronic acid makes your skin look and feel more supple. 


Which skin type should prefer water-based moisturizer?
People with oily skin type must use water-based moisturizer as they have a skin which is prone to acne and breakouts.
Normally water-based moisturizers are recommended to people with oily skin, but normal skin types can also use it provided it contains hyaluronic acid in it.

Benefits of Water-Based Moisturizer
  • Since water-based moisturizers have a thin consistency, so they will reduce the chances of breakouts. Water does not bind into your pores so it will not clog them.
  • They can be used as a base for makeup and can be worn throughout the day
  • They get absorbed very quickly into your skin
Side effects of Water-Based Moisturizer
  • Sensitive skin must always make sure that their moisturizer does not contain any artificial fragrance or dyes, as it may cause irritation and breakouts.

Vatenn Italy Review | Duo Matte Wet & Dry Powder Foundation

Vatanen Italy has become one of my favorite brands, not only because I receive products from them as PR, but because of their quality. In the past, I’ve reviewed their products here and here, you can check them out as well. Today, I’ll be reviewing the Vatenn Duo Matte Wet & Dry Powder Foundation, which has become quite a staple in my life ever since I have received it. I must say that it has become one of my favorites, want to know how? then you might as well keep on reading.


CLAIMS OF THE PRODUCT:
  • Long-Lasting Color That Stays Put For 24-Hours.
  • Revitalize And Care For Skin With Anti-Ageing Benefits
  • Silky Smooth Formula Leaves A Perfectly Baby-Soft Finish
  • Feather-Light, Liquid Mousse Blends Flawlessly For Natural-Looking, All Day Shine Control
  • Conceals Imperfections For A Lasting Healthy And Youthful-Looking Complexion.


PRICE: Rs. 1555 for 10 g of product
BUY IT FROM: Amazon | Flipkart

INGREDIENTS:
PACKAGING:

I freaking love the packaging. It is very sleek and made of good quality plastic. You get a mirror which is made of good quality and there’s a compartment for keeping the sponge. This compartment is perforated so it keeps the sponge fresh. Normally I don’t like the applicator that comes with powder foundations like this, but this applicator is made of amazing quality.
This powder foundation is a little bulky but you can travel easily with it. 
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
This powder is very pigmented and very finely milt. Since it contains Silica, so it glides onto your face and applies evenly. If you apply it with the sponge you’ll get an opaque finish. 
I love the formula, it is very smooth and doesn’t look cakey at all. You can literally use this powder and skip general foundation as it provides medium coverage.
SHADES:
It comes in 6 shades which will cater to the light and medium skin tone families, but people with darker skin tones will find a difficulty in finding their perfect shade. I wish it came in more shades as it is one of the best powder foundations I’ve ever tried.
My shade is 602 Sun Beige, which has yellow undertones to it and matches my skin. So, if you are somewhere around my skin tone, then 602 Sun Beige will match you.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:

It is a long lasting powder foundation that lasts for about 7-8 hours on me, but you’ll have to touch up here and there. It provides medium coverage so it normally covers everything on me. I really like the fact that it’s very finely milt so it glides on smoothly and blends easily. I’d prefer that you use it with the sponge that it comes with because that provides maximum coverage and helps in blending the product. I’d not recommend you to use it with a brush, as it will have a lot of fo fallouts since its a very finely milt powder.

It can be used both wet and dry, but I do prefer it dry. I’d recommend that you use it dry. Overall, I highly recommend this powder foundation, as I’ve said before, it’s one the best powder foundations out there in the Indian market. But I do wish that the price would have been a little lower.

PROS:
  • Very blendable
  • Finely milt powder
  • Has medium coverage
  • Lasts for 7-8 hours
  • Glides smoothly on the face
  • Doesn’t make you look cakey
  • Comes with an applicator
  • Comes with a mirror
  • Travel-friendly
CONS:
  • Has a lot of fallouts
  • Very expensive

RATINGS: 4.5/5

Sustainable Fashion| Tips for embracing sustainability with your clothing



When buying on a budget, fast fashion is tempting. But more and more of us are looking to be better at making environmentally friendly choices, and this includes our wardrobe. Luckily, the high street fashion scene is changing, making it easier to shop sustainably while staying on a budget, and without compromising your fashion sense. Here are our three best tips to treat the planet well, without sacrificing style.
Shop Smart

 One of the easiest steps in the move towards an ethical wardrobe is to choose shops and brands that have already committed themselves to improve sustainability and environmental practices. ASOS, for example, now has a sustainable fashion collection and source 34% of their clothing fibers from sustainable sources. You can support brands that look after both the environment and people (fair trade all the way!), and look great while you do it. You can feel good about what you buy without any difficulty – it couldn’t be easier to be ethical.
Shop Light

A lot of the problem with fast fashion is the amount we end up buying, which ends up producing a huge amount of waste. We’ve all done it – bought something not because we love it, but because it’s cheap, then thrown it away a year later. In addition, the industry uses trillions of tonnes of water every year to make all these clothes. Celebrities like Emma Watson are changing the fashion for this; she even wore a dress made entirely of recycled plastic bottles. If you’re looking for high-budget inspiration, you can explore Watson’s favorite environmentally friendly brands. Most of us are not shopping on her budget, but there are easier ways to make a change to the industry. One easy way to start is with a capsule wardrobe. You invest in key pieces that can be styled differently. Every wardrobe needs basic building blocks – a few good quality shirts, skirts, trousers and dresses that you can wear with sandals or flats for day, and heels for night. This kind of versatility is ideal for a capsule wardrobe – invest in pieces that can be accessorized for any mood, and let styling change your look. Restraint when shopping can be difficult, but a capsule wardrobe allows you to love everything you wear.

Shop Trans-seasonal

Livia Firth is the founder of Eco Age and got the #30wears hashtag trending. Basically, when you shop, you should look at a piece and ask yourself, “Will I wear this thirty times?” – a lot of the time, your answer will be no. So however tempted you are by that statement piece unless you’ll wear it to thirty events, resist. The 30 wears test also means that, where you can, it’s great to buy clothes wearable across different seasons – think dresses that can do summer and autumn depending on whether you wear tights.
Making your wardrobe sustainable can seem difficult, but it’s getting easier – and it’s now more urgent that we try to sustainable than ever before. An environmentally friendly wardrobe doesn’t mean compromising your style, just changing how you shop. Look amazing with a clear conscience!

Vatenn Italy Review: Italian Matte Foundation in the Shade 604 Tan

Have you read my previous Vatenn Italy Review? If not, you check it out here. This time, Vatenn Italy sent me 5 products. So, I’ll be reviewing everything on my blog. Starting with the Vatenn Italian Matte Foundation. Ever since I saw Arnakshi using this foundation, I wanted to try this. So, when I finally received this in my mail, I was delighted. Here’s a review on Vatenn Italy Italian Matte Foundation Review in the Shade 604 Tan



CLAIMS:
  • Pro-matte finish
  • Air-light
  • Oil-free

INGREDIENTS:
PRICE: Rs.1888 for 30 ml
BUY IT FROM: Amazon | Flipkart
PACKAGING:

 Vatenn Italian Matte Foundation comes in a sleek plastic squeeze tube packaging. It is very small and compact in size and can fit into any purse. Very travel-friendly.  It contains 30 ml of product which is quite less for the price it has been offered for.

I like the packaging especially for its compactness and the fact that you can squeeze out the amount of product that you need.

TEXTURE, CONSISTENCY & PIGMENTATION:

The consistency is very thick and creamy. It has a moose like texture. But it does blend very easily, be it with a brush or a beauty sponge. I’ve used my Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush (Use my code IBB to get 10% off on Sigma Beauty) for blending, and it did blend out easily. This foundation is very pigmented. So, you do need a less amount of product for your application.


SHADES:
I’ve chosen the shade 604 Tan which is two shades darker than my skin tone. Choosing a foundation online can be tricky. I could have gone 2 shades lighter, probably with 602 Beige. 
601 Vanilla: Yellow Undertones
602 Beige: Yellow Undertones
603 Golden Beige: Slight pink Undertones
604 Tan: Yellow Undertones 
605 Warm Rose: Pink Undertones
606 Classic Tan: Orange Undertones

DOES IT OXIDIZE?

Yes, it does oxidize slightly, which can be cured by using a primer underneath or by using a makeup setting spray.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:
First of all, this foundation has a very beautiful pro-matte finish. It sets down matte but does impart a slight glow into your face, so it looks quite beautiful. It doesn’t budge, except for the fact that after 5-6 hours, I found that my T zone was quite shiny. So, make sure to set it with a loose powder
The foundation is very lightweight and has an oil-free formula. It blends very easily. You can use either a brush or a beauty sponge.
It has medium-to-full coverage, which conceals mainly a lot of imperfections. Since I don’t have a lot of blemishes it did cover mainly everything. But it will not cover heavy dark circles, keep that in mind. 

This foundation can be worn by all skin types, as it is not that matte that will be uncomfortable for a person with dry skin type.

But the one thing that I did not like is the quantity. My tube felt like it did not have enough product. The quantity is very less. It feels like it will be over in about 2 months.

PROS:
  • Matte finish that does not look flat 
  • Imparts a slight glow to your face
  • Lightweight formula
  • Very Pigmented
  • Thick and creamy consistency
  • Blends very easily
  • Medium-to-full coverage
  • Travel-friendly packaging
  • Compact Packaging
CONS:
  • Quantity is very less considering the price
  • Very expensive
  • Can oxidize

RATINGS: 4/5

Nivea Skin Breathe Micellar Rose Water Review | Best Micellar Water To Remove Waterproof Makeup | Under Rs.500 

Ever since Nivea launched its Micellar water collection in India, I was really intrigued by this particular micellar water. It claims to remove 100% of makeup with 0% product residue, contains rose water as an active ingredient, is suitable for skin, eyes, lips, and for all skin types. Wanna know why this micellar water has achieved my trust and why I love this more than my Garnier Micellar water? You can find out in the end.




ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
NIVEA MicellAIR® Rose Water – 1st Natural Rose Micellar Water that removes even waterproof make-up and restores skin’s radiance.


Product action:

– Infused with natural rose water

– Removes even waterproof make-up


– Restores skin’s radiance


– Non-greasy


Result:


Skin is still radiant even make-up is removed

  • Infused with natural rose water
  • Removes even waterproof make-up
  • Restores skin’s radiance
  • Non-Greasy
  • Skin compatibility dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved
INGREDIENTS :

Being a B.tech in Biotechnology student have its perks in the beauty blogging world. (All thanks to my professor for teaching me Natural Product Chemistry in 6th Semester). After looking at the ingredients, I can see that this micellar water not on contains Rosewater, but it also contains other natural ingredients like 

  • Linalool, which is extracted from the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring Terpene alcohol found in many flowers and spice plants.
  • Citronellol: It is found in Citronella oils, and also found in the oils of roses
  • Limonene: It is found in Lemons
  • Geraniol: It is a primary part of rose oil


PRICE: Rs. 425 for 400 ml
BUY IT FROM Amazon | Flipkart | Nykaa

PACKAGING:

This micellar water comes in a big plastic bottle. The product can be dispensed evenly, all you need is to squeeze the bottle. Since it is a bi-phase product so you can see a layer of oil. So, before application, you need to shake the product.
This packaging is simple and basic, but you won’t be able to carry it with you as it is not travel-friendly. But, for everyday usage, it is the perfect option as it contains a lot of product which will last for months.

CONSISTENCY OF THE PRODUCT:
It has a liquid runny consistency. This micellar water won’t strip your skin from its oils but will moisturize it as well. The product gets absorbed within seconds. 
The product has a slight pink tint to it and does smell like typical Nivea moisturizers (Like the Nivea Soft Light Moisturizer). 
HOW TO USE IT:
  • Take a cotton pad/ cotton ball, and soak it with this micellar water.
  • Gently press it on your eyes/lips and hold it for 10 secs to melt down the product and wipe it off. 
  • For your face, just wipe your face with the cotton pad like you use it for a toner

DOES IT REALLY REMOVE WATERPROOF MAKEUP?
Absolutely yes! It took 2 cotton pads to remove my Maybelline Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara, which is literally impossible to remove. It left no product residue what-so-ever. 
Product Used for Demo :

WHAT ABOUT THE CLAIMS? ARE THEY TRUE?

I’ve been using it for the past two months and I still have literally more than half of the bottle left with me. It breaks down makeup from your skin and removes it efficiently without any product residue. So, the 0% Product residue is true.
It does remove waterproof makeup, including waterproof mascara (which can be hard to remove). So this claim holds true as well.
It does tone your skin, cleanses it, not sure about the purification part. But, let me tell you, it will make your face a little tacky, so make sure to wash it off with a face wash. I normally use my Clean and Clear Foaming Face Wash after using this micellar water
MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:
Nivea Skin Breathe Micellar Rose Water is a good investment, to begin with, if you use waterproof makeup because it acts as a makeup remover, cleanser, and toner. If the product goes into your eyes, then you might sense a little bit discomfort but nothing major, so make sure you do not drench your cotton pad with an excess product while using it on your eyes. It is both dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, so it is safe to use on face, lips and eyes.
Since it is a biphase solution, so it does contain an oil part. So, after using it, your face will be slightly tacky, but well moisturized. Make sure to wash it off with a face wash to revive clean face. 
PROS:
  • Removes waterproof mascara
  • Tones your skin
  • Cleanses your skin
  • Contains a lot of natural products
  • Doesn’t strip oils from your face
  • Quantity is enough to last for up to 5 months
  • Affordable (Since you can get it on discount online)
  • Suitable for all skin types

CONS:
  • Can leave the skin a bit tacky after usage
DO I RECOMMEND IT?
Absolutely yes! 

RATINGS: 5/5

With age, your skin can start to look very dull, dry and uneven. It may start to become uneven if not treated properly. You do require a good skincare routine for that but you may also require some supplements to complement each other for better results. We often hear come across products that use the terms “removes your dark circles”, ” makes your skin even toned”, “brightened skin in 5 days”, but are those products really effective? Are they helpful? They often do not show the proclaimed results that they mention, that this when Skin Brightening Supplements like Glutone 1000 & Escor Z comes in.



ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

PRICE: Rs.2765 |  Buy Now from ClickOnCare


What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is the main ingredient in Glutone 1000. It is found in the body as a powerful antioxidant whose levels decline with aging. It helps to prevent oxidative damage to the skin and has the ability to lighten skin. Glutathione is also helpful for detoxing your skin, improving the immune system and the health of your skin 

What are the benefits of Glutone 1000 & Escor Z tablets?
  • Helps to even skin tone
  • Helps in skin brightening
  • Helps in lightening your blemishes
  • Increases production and transfer of anti-aging protein
  • It exerts photoprotective effects by neutralizing free radicals
MY REVIEW OF THE PRODUCTS:

Glutone 1000 comes in a tub of 15 tablets and Escor Z comes in a tub of 20 tablets. It is instructed to close the cap tightly to avoid tablet degradation. Both the tablets have a fruity flavor to it which tastes quite well compared to other supplements. All you have to do is drop the tablet in 120 ml of water and allow it to frizz. You have to wait until the effervescence stops.

After trying it out for 20 days, I did not notice any vast difference in my skin texture and skin tone. But I did notice a prominent decrease in my dark circles and few spots here and there. There’s an added advantage that these tablets also helps in proper digestion and helps to even your skin tone.

You won’t see a crazy difference if you think that it will magically fix your skin in a day, because it will not. Supplements are hassle-free and effective but you will need patience and also have to maintain a healthy diet, because your skin needs nourishment from within and hydration as well.

You have to keep on using it for an extended period to gain its full potential. But I do recommend that you consult your doctor if you have sensitive skin.

ADDED POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND:

  • These tablets are to be taken orally
  • It is suitable for all skin types
  • Suitable for both men and women
  • It is vegetarian
  • The recommended dosage is 1 tablet a day (in the morning)
  • Take 1 Glutone 1000 and 1 Escor Z tablet every morning
  • Only for Adults
