Skincafe Lip Tint Balm (Shade : Apple Cranberry Pie)

Welcome Luscious Lips with Skincafe Lip Tint Balm : Apple Cranberry Pie – Review

Hello lovely people! Let me introduce you to a wonderful brand today. A brand that is innovative, thoughtful and consistent. Skincafe is a brand you might or might not have heard of. This is because they don’t insanely publicize themselves, or their products. But the brand has a beautiful ideology and a small team of closely-knit people, that are dedicated to providing some wonderful skincare products. And I feel equally delighted and honored to be associated with this kind brand and present its product before you.

Skincafe majorly works on lip care, although they have a nice range of face masks. Each of their products are named after a dessert, and their product catalog looks more like a dessert heaven than a skincare e-com site! You’ve got to see their website to believe it.😃 Find them here : http://www.skincafe.in.

Let me show you a few snippets from their website. 🙂

Their website enlists the products in form of pictures of these super delicious desserts and smoothies… 🙂

I received their Lip Tint Balm in Apple Cranberry Pie, a mildly red-tinted lip balm. Read on for the complete review.🙂 Read more

Mond'Sub Gold Facial Mask

Sheet Mask Chronicles : Mond’Sub Gold Facial Mask (Crystal Collagen Mask Series) – Review

Heylo my lovely readers! The chilly weather has subdued wee bit on its glory, but I’m lazy as ever. 😛 However I do realize the importance of feeding my skin right to help with its dull, stretchy feeling. The weather is not being kind to my skin or hairs, so these need to be really taken care of.

Thank goodness for sheet masks, my skincare routine winds up easy. So one lazy day, when my skin was behaving weird (well it does on most days 😛 ), I picked up the Mond’sub Gold Facial Mask from my stash. Read on for my experience with the product. 🙂

My Experience with the Mond’sub Gold Collagen Mask :

Mond'Sub Gold Facial Mask

Now this is very different from regular sheet masks, right from the packaging to usage. This mask is a part of Mond’sub’s Crystal Collagen Mask Series. It comes in a sturdy plastic frame, carved out to accommodate the mask and the serum. The outer package as well as the mask is golden in color. Everything you need to know about the mask – the ingredients, about, usage and manufacture are clearly printed on the back of the package. I love it when brands come out clear with information. So certainly kudos to Mond’sub in that aspect. Read more

Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask

Sheet Mask Chronicles : Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask BHA – Review

Hi everyone! I have been caught up in a whirlwind of tasks over the last week, so little late in putting up posts. The review of the Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask should have seen the light of the day before quite some time, but I didn’t want to put up a review post just for the sake of it. It feels good to know you enjoy reading my posts, so I always make sure to give each post its due time. 🙂

Let me tell you, I’m loving using the Skin Clinic range of sheet masks from Innisfree in the hotter months loaded with humidity. I have using the Catechin variant before. The sheet masks usually carry a lot of serum in them, and I have an oily-combination skin. However, the Skin Clinic face masks are a delight in a way that they are comparatively lightweight than the It’s Real Squeeze masks. And I keep going back to sheet masks. To me, they are one of the easiest ways for the lazy ones to pamper their skin at home. 😀

Product Description :

  1. It contains BHA which cares for rough skin to keep the skin smooth.
  2. This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool.
  3. It is transparent and thin and has good adherence on the skin, which allows for its good substances to be more effective delivered into the skin.

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation – Review

Hi everyone! Today I have a product that I have been using for quite some time now. I bought it from my last visit at the TBS store. The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation is my first try at cushion foundations. This is mainly because the cushion foundation trend is made famous by Korean brands, and most of them are available online. So I hadn’t the heart to buy from them without swatching.

This is when TBS launched its new makeup collection with #SealedWithAKiss, under the umbrella of Jacqueline’s signature range. I have a lot of faith in TBS, so I decided to pick one cushion foundation from them. Not that they gave me a lot of shade options, but I was happy to note that one of the two (seriously? just two?) shades did blend in seamlessly on my NC 40 complexion. 🙂 So I picked up 03 Malawi Beach almost immediately. The other shade option is 04 Wanaka Honey.

Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Catechin

Sheet Mask Chronicles : Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Catechin – Review

Hi everyone! Too many days and I have used a sheet mask. The last that I used was the The Face Shop Calendula Face Mask. The humidity continues to grow and I am using serum-drenched sheet masks little sparingly. However I did want to use the Skin Clinic Mask series from Korean Beauty giant Innisfree for quite some time, and its Catechin variant was my first pick. 🙂

Product Description :

1. This dual functional mask is certified for its dual effects. It contains catechins that are found in green tea extract, which leaves the skin cleaner and firmer. Niacinamide and adenosine enhance complex skin troubles, including dull skin and wrinkles.

2. This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool.

3. It is transparent and thin and has good adherence on the skin, which allows for its good substances to be more effective delivered into the skin.

How to Use :

1. After cleansing, use toner to refine skin texture.
2. Take out mask from package and remove film. Evenly adhere it to entire face, avoiding eye and lip area.
3. Remove the sheet after 10~20 minutes and gently pat to allow the remaining formula to absorb into skin.

Unlike the It’s Real Squeeze sheet masks from Innisfree that are priced at INR 100 each, the Skin Clinic masks retail for INR 150 for one mask of 20ml. I got the Innisfree Catechin Skin Clinic mask from Nykaa. Read more
