I am totally not a morning person. My morning time is so tightly packed between taking a shower, drying my hair, deciding what clothes to wear, sometimes ironing them too, having breakfast (which I mostly have on-the-go) that I barely get any time to do makeup. Otherwise too, I don’t like to put on too much makeup on everyday basis. I have really long working hour – 9 am to 9 pm mostly, so I don’t want to end up having clogged pores and want to let my skin breathe as much as possible. But nonetheless, I have come up with a routine that I love, my face looks put-together and takes me just about 5 – 7 minutes.
Exfoliation is an important step in your skin care regime that most people tend to skip. It is just as important as cleansing your skin. Dead skin often leads to clogged pores which in in turn leads to acne and dull skin. Regular exfoliation aids in getting rid of the dead skin and smooth and healthy texture. That doesn’t mean that you should exfoliate your skin every day. Over scrubbing would result in irritated skin. There are a lot of options for exfoliators, depending upon you skin type, available in the market these days. But today let us talk about the The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator.
As you would have read my earlier post [Healthy Recipe- Over Night Oats] where I mentioned that I have gained a lot of weight recently. I have been trying to be healthy and trying to incorporate some form of exercise. I have joined the gym (which I barely manage to go 3 times a week). But the days I don’t go to the gym, I try to watch what I eat and count my calories.
So Nykaa is having a Diwali sale that started on 14th October and will end on 22nd October. Almost all brands like Loreal, Maybelline, Lakme, Inglot also skin care brands like Olay, Avene, Kaya have a 10-30% discount going on. It’s a great time to stock up on some regular essentials. You can also to try out new products so in case you end up liking the product at least you didn’t pay the full amount. Read on to see what I bought during the Great Nykaa Diwali Sale.
Your eyes can make or break your look. Mascara adds that oomph factor to your face. I usually never spend a lot of money on mascaras. I feel the drugstore ones are equally good, if not better. I have been using the Maybelline The Falsies since a few years now and absolutely love it. But then I decided to give the Benefit They’re Real a go to see what the hype was really about.
Liquid lipsticks have been quite the rage these days. They come in a gloss-like packaging but once applied, they settle matte on your lips. They don’t have the glossy, shinny texture, with hardly any staying power of a lip gloss. They have super long staying power, do not smudge and are extremely pigmented.
A concealer has become every girl’s best friend. It is probably one of the most used item from my makeup stash. Most days I don’t apply a foundation, just dot some concealer and CC cream. After hearing so many rave reviews and such bold statements about this concealer by beauty bloggers across the globe, I decided to give this a try.

The past few days were extremely hectic and long at work. All I wanted to do was sit, sleep and probably wake up also in a spa, getting myself pampered and letting go of all the stress. But unfortunately that didn’t happen. So on last Saturday night I dished out this little kit that I got as a gift from a friend, the Kama Ayurveda Luxury Home Spa Kit and prepared for a spa night at home.
