BEAUTY FORMULAS Cranberry Moisturising Hand Cream- Review

Hey Guys!

It was few days back ,we were shopping at the nearest mall just to grab few essentials since the season is changing so is the skin care needs. At NewU billing counter this BEAUTY FORMULAS Hand cream grabbed my attention (I don`t know if it’s a sells strategy at NewU, I always end up tossing few more items in my cart from the countertop specially the handy travel size ones & I am not complaining these are really useful ones…Good job guys!!)

I wash my hands several times in a day (Sometimes I wonder if I have hand washing OCD :P) also dry weather adds on to it …makes my hand rough & I need to keep re-applying some hand lotion to keep them soft & supple.  So, I am always on a good hand cream hunt.

This has become my favourite now & I always carry in my bag. It is formulated to deeply nourish your dry hands. The non-greasy formula gets easily absorbed, leaving your hands feeling soft, smooth and supple.

Favorite Sunscreen : Suncros AquaGel Review

Hi Guys,

Spring is here..Hope you all are all set for the summer time. Time to take out our Cute Floral & colorful Dresses but along with it need to take care of our skin in a different way too. Hydrate it well drink lots of fluids & don`t forget to protect it from the sun.

A lot of us ignore the importance of sunscreen in the skin care regime… But to have a fair, supple & youthful skin you need to take good care of your skin from dust, pollution & harmful ultra violet radiations from the sun. Also, the ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding. Sun exposure without the shield can get you pre-mature aging, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots even skin cancer.

I happen to have an oily skin & finding the right sunscreen was very challenging for me. Some were very sticky others made by face white. Suncros was prescribed to me by my dermatologist when I visited Berkowits for a consultation & I absolutely love it now. Dermatologist recommend to apply it 3-4 times a day between mornings till 4 pm. Sometimes I forget but mostly I do follow it.

What i love the most about Suncros is that it gives your face a dewy glow & due to its texture, it can act as a nice primer for your everyday makeup plus the sun protection. DOUBLE WOWW!

Suncros Aqua Gel SPF 26 is Non-greasy, water resistant sunscreen especially suited for oily skin, humid conditions and excessive sweating. Contains Nano-sized Zinc Oxide for complete UV-A and UV-B protection. Superior UV-A protection compared to ordinary sunscreens.

Pros:

  • Good SPF of 26 which is ideal for Indian climate.
  • Gives a nice dewy glow to the skin can be used as a primer.
  • Not greasy & doesn’t leave a ghostly white cast like most sunscreen.
  • Gel based and water resistant I have to wash my wash thoroughly with water to take it off
  • Value for money one tub last a long way (100gms tub for Rs.375)

Cons:

  • It takes a minute to absorb properly into your skin.
  • Might look shiny when freshly applied but soon it gets changed into a dewy glow.
  • Comes in a tub so you need to make sure your hands are clean when using it.

How to use rose water in your everyday beauty regime

Hey All,

How you all are doing, welcome back to the blog !

Rose water is one of the best thing you can include in your skin care routine. Rosewater is exactly as it sounds, roses + water. It gives you all the benefits of water plus the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and hydrating advantages of rose. Bonus it smells awesome 🙂1180w-600h_090216_recipe-belles-rose-water-780x440

Chances are you already aware about this magic potion but I suspect most of you have no idea how or why you might want to use rosewater, so here are a few beauty benefits of this amazing product :

  1. Maintains your skin’s natural pH level.
  2. Control excess oil.
  3. Helps clean pores and tone the skin.
  4. Hydrate, refresh and sooth skin, and gives a natural glow.
  5. It also helps aging skin by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  6. It is suitable for all skin types.

Now for some of the ways I like to use rosewater in my skin care routine:

1. Skin Toner – this is the number 1 way I like to use it. I also love using my Green tea toner and ACV toner. I will post the recipe of these 2 toner very soon, both the toner are super effective but the lingering scent of apple cider vinegar ain’t got nothing on rose.

2. Eye Pack – Soak 2 cotton pad in chilled rose-water and place on your eyes after an all nighter and it will help reduces the puffiness and make you look more fresh and awake and ready for the day. 

3. Face Pack – I always use rosewater in all my face pack and treatments, as it hydrate, sooth and refresh skin and gives a very natural glow.PS- I 99% of time use homemade, DIY, all natural product on my skin.

4. Face refresher/Make-up setter – Spray this on your face  whenever you feel tired and your skin need that boost, or once you are done with your makeup and all set to rock the diva inside you, spray..spray…it works.

5. Skin Treatment – Mix rosewater – 25 ml, lemon 1.5 tsp and glycerine 3 tsp and store in a clean spray bottle, spray on clean skin before bed every alternate day. It heals skin, improves acne, even out skin tone and make your skin glow in no time. you can store this potion up to 15 days, after which make a new batch. In summers store it in your refrigerator. 

These are just a few of the many ways you also can use rosewater. Now that I’ve put everything in a very compact manner for you, I challenge you to go out and experiment!

Love –

TWC
