My Current Skin care! [Winter Edition]

Helloooo my beautiful people! I finally have put together my current skin care routine, which I have been following to beat the winter blues! I hope you enjoy it and feel free to comment with any suggestions or questions, I’d love to help!
These are all the products I’ve been using this season
For my face wash I’ve been using my vivel 3 in 1 face wash +scrub: This is a good cleanser, although its a lil harsh for winters I’d say. But it leaves my skin squeaky clean, yet not dry [I have normal skin, tends to be dry at times]

Now, these are the two creams I’ve been using for the dry winter times! I’ve gotten the Votre massage cream recently so trying it out for you guys! [a review will be up soon!] and the Vivel Winter Nourish Cream, I use this as a day cream it is  also quiet thick, not very sure if this is a good choice for those with oily skin, works good for dry and normal skin, also it has  spf15!

I am not a huge toner user, BUT I’ve recently started to use one! it is this votre pore shrink toner, I’m still in the process to seeing results, will do a review on this one soon! xoxox

Now this I use when my feet act fancy[I mean dry 😐 ] I use the Vaseline Moisture Therapy Heel Cream This is good for temporary results, which are quiet good!
|

Okay, frankly I am a lil lazy when it comes to body moisturizing 😐 :  [Please tell me I’m not the only one :O ]
So, I am tryin…….g to remember my lotion, and when I do I use the Nivea whitening cell repair and Uv protect, although soon I’ll either be getting the moisturizing ones or the vaseline oil which I’ve been seeing around.

Now as for Exfoliation I’ve been using my DIY Exfoliating scrub and DIY honey winter mask
The recipes for these are up next! so stay Tuned for more.
I hope this was not boring, I tend to use Organic skin care products, do let me know if you’d like to see my Chemical free skin care routine! ^_^

What is your favorite skin care product? 
And…..What’s your routine?

Lakme Skin Gloss – Winter Intense Moisturizer

A week back my eyes landed on this eye catching evil lil phrase ” Skin gloss” I immediately picked it up and got introduced to Lakme Skin Gloss- Winter Intense Moisturizer. Mind you the day before I bought this I purchased VLCC moisturizer. >.<
What clearly attracted me to this was the claim of making your skin soft, supple and dryness free {what! O_O} Don’t we all just want that perfect silk smooth skin? Lol
Moving on

It comes in a regular Lakme Bottle. There are the Tub versions as well, But I’d rather pick this just for the hygiene reasons. The lotion spreads on evenly and smoothly not too runny, Just the perfect consistency. On the very first use It gives a soft feeling, Its easily absorbed and stays on for quite sometime [ yay!!] The good part is it doesn’t make your skin oily! which I was a lil doubtful of when I was purchasing it. But luckily it didn’t turn me down! [whooop!]

Price/Availability: I paid 195 rs for this one.
Likes:
Smooth, rich texture
Hydrates/moisturizes
No stickiness!
Easy to use
Hygienic packaging!
Dislikes:

Parabens!!! >.<

Have you guys tried this yet??

REVIEW: OXYGLOW nature’s care Alovera & Citrus deep Cleansing Milk

REVIEW: OXYGLOW nature’s care Alovera & Citrus deep Cleansing Milk
Hello beautiful ladies,
Welcome to my blog!! today I’ll be reviewing Oxy-Glow Cleansing Milk. This weekend i decide to try some skin care products and so i bought myself this cleansing milk and two lip balms [i love collecting lip balms tell me, i am not the only one 😀 😀 ]
 
Price: Rs. 145 
Packaging:
The Product comes in a cute white bottle. The material of the bottle is quite nice.  It is a pump bottle, so it is hygienic and travel friendly [yay!!]. The quantity is quite nice 120 ml.

Ingredients: Aqua, Sunflower oil, Almond oil, coconut oil, GMS, Aloevera, lemon peel, peach extract

The ingredients mentioned are quiet natural which is a bonus! considering all the chemical laden beauty products.

Product Claims: 
The cleansing milk cleans away the deeply set dirt oil and makeup residues and leaves skin perfectly clean and glowing.  use everyday for a hydrated and smooth complexion..

My take on the Cleansing milk:

The product doesnt dry out skin nor makes it very oily[considering I have a Normal Skin type] . it is easy to apply. It removes dirt  and makeup from the skin leaving clean. It is travel friendly and lite on pocket too!!  
below are the swatches with an eyeliner:

Ta Da !!! all clean!


Pros of oxyglow deep cleansing milk:

  • It lives up to its claims. Does the job pretty well.
  • The smell – a light fresh smell .
  • It hasn’t irritated my eyes or skin in anyway. It really is gentle.
  • It didn’t cause me to break out unlike many other cleansers, even when I didn’t wash it after removing it with cotton.
  • The quantity for the price is awesome. Will last two or three months if used daily and some 5-6 months if used not so often.

Cons of oxyglow deep cleansing milk:

  • Availabiltiy might be an issue.
  • might not be very suitable for oily skin.
Final Verdict:  its a quite good cleansing milk [considering the natural ingredients] worth a try.
Would I buy again?
Maybe, I would like to try other brands as well.
Do I recommend Oxyglow Cleansing Milk?
Yes, very good for dry and normal skin.
Rating: 4/5
