Fabeya BioCare Natural Body Scrub and Polish : Orange & Wine

Fabeya BioCare Natural Body Scrub and Polish Review : Orange & Wine

Hi people! I’ve been pretty caught up at the personal front, so apologies if you have been missing out on my posts. In the meantime however, I have been rigorously trying out two amazing body scrubs that are 100% certified organic and paraben free! Could things get any better for a bath-and-body-products’ addict like me, who’s also more inclined towards cruelty free and organic? 😀

The Fabeya Body Scrubs are sure a treat to the skin, and these are available in some drool-worthy variants. The brand sent across their Orange and Wine scrubs, and I have still been deciding which one I love more. 😛 Oh and if you are on Instagram do take a look at their feed. It is full of love for their products, from bloggers and consumers alike. Also take note of their handle – @fabulous_fabeya – I mean these guys know they’re doing a fabulous job and they’re well confident about it!

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!

What helped me to treat dry patches on skin

Dry, Rough Patches on Skin? This is how I Treated them…

Hi people! Winters have finally made up their mind to bid adieu, and I am relieved. I know I know, so many of you love winters, but I’m more of a tropical person. 😀 Nevertheless winter has its pros – lush fresh veggies – I love them. But the winter this time has been harsh on my skin. I got dry patches on my arms, that felt rough and bumpy to touch, near shoulders and I was in a state of shock, having incurred them the first time ever. Living in a warm, humid climate almost made me so-not-used-to so much dryness. This time however, it was testing. 😐

I did some research to identify the causes behind my skin conditions. I needed to find them because I needed to combat the dry patches at the earliest possible, as they were getting uncomfortable day by day.

Following could have been the reasons behind the rough, patchy dryness (any or all could apply) :
  • Taking hot showers frequently
  • Pores getting clogged from silicones in moisturizers
  • Dehydration
  • Constant friction of skin with woolens

But there have been a few products which I kept going back to, because they worked immensely well for my skin.

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
