Suganda 2-step skincare for oily to combination skin

My Simple yet Effective Skincare Routine with Suganda : Neem Green Tea Mask, White Lotus Moisturizer Review

Hello people! I had recently shared a simple 2-step skincare routine on my Instagram account. It involves just two products : a powder cleanser-cum-mask, and a moisturizer. Both from a new brand : Suganda. I have been using these for around two weeks now. Not only am I taken aback by their efficacy, but also I’m highly impressed with their aesthetics.

Suganda is a Hyderabad-based brand spearheaded by Bindu Amrutham, who is a natural skincare expert. Her premium skincare brand formulates products with plant extracts infused with essential vitamins.

Bindu suggested me the Neem Green Tea Mask and White Lotus Moisturizer. Both targeted at oily to combination, acne-prone skin types.

Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum

Argan Oil for Skin : Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum – My Experience and Review

Hi people! Hope you’re doing good. I’m really excited about this post because today I will talk about a wonderful serum from the house of Aroma Essentials. 🙂

About the Serum :

Contains – Argan, Bergamot, Apricot carrier oils, essential oils of carrotseed, rosemary, lavender and patchouli, shea butter (in very small quantity)

Basic Functions

Hydration, increased nourishment, skin brightening and acne prevention. Madhu calls this a serum even when it is majorly composed of oils, because face oils too have around 5% to 10% of oils, while this product has more concentrated quantity of the active ingredients (upto 70%).

My Experience with the Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum:

Serums have been an integral part of my skincare routine since years now. However I have mostly restricted them to my night time regimen. So I was really happy to treat my skin to the concentrated goodness of serum, even beneath a sunscreen!

Humble Bee Luxury Face Mask – Aloe Vera with Activated Charcoal : My Experience and Review

Hi everyone! Winters have been mean this year in Kolkata, and my skin had to quite struggle with the unusual chills. But there have been a few products which I kept going back to, because they worked immensely well for my skin. The Humble Bee Luxury Aloe-Charcoal face mask has been one such product that my skin kept thanking for all the goodness. So much so, that I’ve already hit the pan in 50 days!

The Humble Bee Luxury Aloe-Charcoal face mask contains charcoal, basil oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E oil in a base of aloe vera gel.

Aloevera gel – treats sunburn, acts as a moisturizer, treats acne, reduces blemishes and also acts as an anti-ageing ingredient.

Charcoal – excellent to combat acne, clearing impurities from skin and pores that tend to accumulate from constant exposure to pollution. 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

Aroma Essential Milk and Chocolate Scrub

Aroma Essentials Chocolate and Milk Scrub is all about Pure Chocolate Indulgence…

Hi people! First of all, a very big sorry to all you lovely readers for not posting anything since long. I had a lot going on at the personal end, and work pressure at office peaked. Could catch up with hardly six hours of sleep at night. Some days, even less. I wasn’t looking and feeling the best over the past few weeks and blogging took a backseat. And I hated it.

I was dying to write. Dying. Not a day went by when I didn’t look forward to a blank canvas and wanted to scribble my heart out! This space is my own, and writing liberates me. And I’m so glad to be back. 🙂 I have a hoard of product reviews wriggling inside my head. That I’m going to share with you by and by. But let me start off with this wonderful Chocolate and Milk Scrub from Aroma Essentials. 🙂

Not My First Stint with the Brand…

I had used their face mask before that B got me from B’lore, and loved it to bits. This kind lady Madhurima then sent across quite a few products for me to try out. And yes, I ain’t compelled to review any of them. 😀 The reason I’m doing so is ‘cause I want you people to know that vegan products exist, and they’re available big time! And as long as wizards like Madhu and the Ashers (names behind Juicy Chemistry) exist, magical concoctions are bound to happen. 🙂 Read more
