Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser & Scrub | Review

When it comes to skincare, I do understand the importance of it but I like to keep it short and effective. Long elaborated skincare routine can be a bit laborious at times. I like my skincare products to be gentle and effective. Since I have combinational skin, I have to be overparticular about what goes on it because a wrong choice can be miserable! Derma E was generous enough to send me their Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser and Scrub, It’s been a while since I started using these… Read on to know how they turned out for me…

Gift Idea for this Holiday Season

Disclosure: This post is in collaboration with Soapbox, The products were sent to me by the brand, but my thoughts are absolutely genuine and true.

I was recently sent a bundle of soapbox products which in my opinion makes the best gift this holiday season, and I say so because of various reasons.  For those who are not familiar, I insist, you to go and read about them as they not only offer great quality products to their customers but also have a great cause behind their business… for every product sold, a bar of soap is donated to a person in need! When I first learned about this, I was definitely blown away by the noble cause. I tried some of their products before as well and my overall experience was just fantastic! You can read the detailed review HERE.

Summer Skin Care Essentials

summer_skin_care




For most of us, summers are not a very happy time for our skin. The heat and the humidity cause breakouts and sometimes even skin irritation. Here are a few products that I like to keep handy for my summer skin care routine. These work really well for my combination skin.

1. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

summer_skin_care_1

Micellar Water is my favourite skin care product ever since I have got my hands on it. It is a superb skin cleanser, which not only removes makeup completely but also takes away all the dirt and oil, and at the same time moisturizes the skin. I like to use it in various ways, as a makeup remover, during bed time if I am feeling lazy to perform the ideal skin cleansing routine, as soon as I wake up in the morning… to get rid of any oil on my face and also after a session at the gym. All you need to do is, pour some micellar water over a cotton ball and apply it all over your face to wipe off any dirt and oil. No need to rinse or apply moisturizer afterwords.

2. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel is a wonder product, I like to use it as a moisturizer on a daily basis. It helps fight acne and works wonders on a sun burn. It leaves the skin hydrated without making it sticky or oily. If you have dry skin, you can apply moisturizer over aloe vera gel or maybe mix them together.



3. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen

summer_skin_care_3

A sunscreen is a must! I like to use the neutrogena ultra sheer Dry Touch sunscreen which has SPF 45 and feels really comfortable on the skin. Also, this works really well under makeup as well. Make sure to wear a sunscreen every time you step out during the day. Your skin will thank you for it!

4. Mud Masks

summer_skin_care_4

I like to use mud masks during summers, They help absorb excess oil and leaves the skin matte and fresh. Also these are great if you suffer from acne issues. I like to use these once or twice a week. My current favourites are Global Beauty Care Charcoal & Dead Sea mud masks.

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner | Review

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

A liquid eyeliner is a great option for a quick go to makeup or an everyday wear. I got this new Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner from Colorbar, which is one of their new launch; and have loved wearing it each day. Read on the detailed review below:

What the brand claims:

“The Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is long-lasting and does not smudge, crack, flake or peel. With its high definition flexible felt tip applicator, one stroke is enough to define a fine or thick line. Fast drying, Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses too!”




Packaging

It comes in a small black plastic bottle with the band name and product details printed over. The brush wand has a silver outer body and is quite convenient for application. Talking about the brush, my liking towards  felt tip applicators is not so great. The tip is not at all flexible as claimed by the brand, one has to work with great precision for neatness. Whereas a more flexible tip would have made things more easier. Beginners  might have problems dealing with a brush like this.

At the same time, it’s non flexible nature helps neater application in the inner corners of the eye, where a flexible tip tends to go messy sometimes.

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is quite an impressing factor here.It’s deep opaque black and looks quite striking.

Texture and Quality

I personally like matte eyeliners over glossy finish. This eyeliner come in a matte texture but not matte to an extend that looks dried and stiff, which is a good thing.

I wouldn’t call it waterproof, would rather label it as water resistant. It comes off easily with slight rubbing with water.

Wear ability

The first day I wore this liner to a mall where it happily lasted for 8-10 hours! But on usual office days where your eyes tend to get watery and tired (which is absolutely not the case when you are out shopping :P) the eyeliner stays neat only up till 4-5 hours after which it starts flaking off a bit.



Price

INR 350/-

You can buy it for INR 340/- HERE

Rating

3.5/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

  1. Not absolutely waterproof as the product claims
  2. Tend to fade off after 4-5 hours
  3. The felt tip application make the application slightly challenging

Why 3.5/5?

  1. Loved the pigmentation and texture
  2. Affordable

Let me know if you have used it before, you can also suggest me some of your favorite liquid eyeliners. 🙂
