Garnier BB Cream Review

Hii all !! Today i am going to talk about BB cream. So let me first share what I know about BB creams. Firstly full form of BB cream is beauty balm. It's an all in one cream, which replaces the need of serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock (Reiterating exactly what i learnt about BB creams !). BB cream even's out skin tone and helps boost skin glow. Okie now lets jump on to review. I don't use BB cream daily but when I go out for outing with friends I use it to get the makeup mellow look. 

Garnier B-B Cream

Garnier claims

Is B.B.Cream right for me ?
Yes,If you are looking for skin care that instantly and effectively helps make your skin perfect, which is 

  • Fairer  
  • Glowing
  • Smooth
  • Even Toned
  • Moisturized
For more information read the description in the below picture.


Rs. 99 for 18 g.

Shelf Life:

  36 months from the Mfg date.

My personal views about this product:


This even's out our skin with a subtle glow. Skin looks to an extent hydrated and healthy. It doesn't cover blemishes or heal them as far as I noticed. If we are looking for something to replace our foundation ,this will disappoint us. We all know it's a competitor for MNY BB cream. If we want a budget friendly product with light coverage, then this is the one going to top the rest of the brands.


It comes in a cute little tube. I like the color of this packaging. It is so small and cute so we can carry it and need not worry about space for rest of items.

Staying Power- 

This stays put for 5 hours, but doesn't fade away. It doesn't turn color or anything like that. I have not experienced any break out after using this. 


Its a thick liquid which, when blended disappears into skin. Even though it  looks thick it isn't a tough player in blending.


It smells cosmetic which I don't like at all. This didn't cause headache, but I am not happy with how it smells.


 Okie this one got me totally!. It has SPF 24 which rocks in my world. This Product also claims it gives protection against both UVA and UVB protection. If you want to know more about sunscreen (Click).

Availability -

In all malls and even almost all shopping websites. Only one shade available.

What I think could have been better:

  • Fragrance
  • Coverage
  • Many shades

Coming to my novel time. I read Blood Promise (4th part of Vampire Academy). This book was not at all like VA series. I got frustrated and annoyed reading this, I had to slog through nearly 120 pages to go to the main story just to find that I am going to hate Rose (Main character) and Dimitri (Her so called bf who turn's into strigoi). When I read at last she killed him I was happy( Even though part of me wanted him alive with her). So we go through how she again saves Lizza (her Bff and bond mate). At the end, we get a letter from D (From where did this come?). I feel like the author has dragged the story too much in this book. I skipped many pages which I never do, that too din expect it in VA series.

That's all for now. Will meet you all soon with an amazing product. Bubye.

Brown is the new cool . So, today I am going to introduce you to a brown liner which recently got added into my vanity. I got this product along with my biotique anti acne gel (Click). "Mam this product is not animal tested". The girl at Chambor prattled on. She handed me a liner and lured me to try it and I, even though not interested made a swatch of it(That moment!). It was so soft. Softer than MNY kajal. Then, I had to get it.


Helps to highlight and shape your eyes to get the desired look. Be it – natural sans make up look, simply subtle or dramatic fluttering eyes.
  • Helps define & shape the eyes giving either a Dramatic, Subtle or Natural look.
  • Matte Finish and in pencil form – easy to carry & apply.
  • Water Proof – Stay On & Smudge proof.
  • Vitamin Enriched: Vitamin – E & A.
  • No Animal Ingredients.
  • Non – Comodogenic.
  • Dermatologist Tested.
  • Ophthalmologist Tested.


Not mentioned (-point for this).

My personal views about this product:


This gives brown with gold shimmer. But the gold shimmer is not too much. Can be worn everyday. Brown liner gives naturally shaped eyes.


Pencil type with a silver cap. Since it is so soft it becomes flat in one use so, we need to sharpen it every time we use it. I prefer retractable pencil than this. Doesn't comes with sharpener and I feel like the product is getting wasted every time i sharpen it.

Staying Power-

This stays put for 4 to 5 hours on your eyes. It does smudge a bit.


It is waterproof. Doesn't smudge or transfer to clothes (So thumbs up for this).


Rs.400. Not a budget friendly product.


Only in Chambor stores and in ( Also available in metallic blue, black and green colors.

Okie coming to my novel time. I have finished FROST BITE  2nd part in Vampire Academy Series. Frost Bite is about how Rose (Main character) kills strigoi (Evil) and saves friends, even though she lost one guy who had a big crush on her and sacrifices his life for her. This part does leave scars behind. Then I started with Shadow Kiss book (3rd part of the series).  Always second or third part in a series are not very interesting, the same goes with this series too. I will post you soon about this book in my next post. Bubye !!

Current Favorite Douche Products.

I Think it's time for me to share my current favorite douche products.These products, I have been using for a very long time and loving them. More over they are easily available in almost all supermarkets. Okie without further ado, let's start !

Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage Shower Gel Review

Palmolive Shower Gel claims:

The secrets of thermal massage transported to your shower! With white clay and thermal minerals, its unique formula provides a gentle scrubbing action and massage kind of an experience. Your skin feels velvety soft and your body is relaxed in a delightful home spa experience! Palmolive thermal spa shower gel can be used with a loofah or by hand.

How to use:

Pour a little Palmolive Thermal spa shower gel on your wet loofah. Apply gently over your wet skin. For best results, use loofah to work up rich, fragrant lather before rinsing off.

My views about this product:

Firstly,I am giving ++ for the packaging. Very hygienic and the flip flop is tight enough from letting the product spill out. After every wash my skin feels fresh and soo soft, I don't know whether its because of Thermal salt & White clay content in it.  Freshens up enough and mild  fragrance keeps lingering in my skin throughout the day. I don't think anybody can have sensitive nose than me but this didn't give me headache or any kind of allergies to my skin. The colour they have chosen for packaging makes me feel like, I am in beach :) I Love this product a lot. I have been using this for months. Hope they release in small sizes soon for making it travel friendly.


Rs.135 for 250 ml.

Clean and Clear Morning Energy Face Wash: Energizing Lemon

My views about this product:

When I go and pick a face wash or face mask I always pick the one which has lemon content in it because, I believe that only lemon can clean my face :P. This one after use makes my face bright. It does have some brightening effect which is though temporary yet impressed me. The yellow beads in the liquid work as a gentle, mild scrub and clean my face. After wash, it leaves behind a bright, glowing and happy face. Clean and clear company is a pioneer, they released in different quantities which helped me to leave behind the large one at home and carry a small bottle out. It doesn't clog pores or cause redness. This product never gave me a thought to try another face wash. I am on my fifth bottle. I even tried strawberry flavor but according to me lemon won over it.


Rs.95 for 250 ml.

Vega Soft Sponge Brush.

My views :

This is not my first bath brush I have tried two or three of some other brands, but the brush's fiber would come out of it or it would scratch me. This one I guess is made for my skin type. I use palmolive shower gel along with this and it makes my skin squeaky clean (i feel like I took bath only after using this!! ) . It has two parts in it out of which one is for cleaning and other is for massaging. The part in the second image is for massaging our knee,elbow,feet and so on. So this does multi-tasking. That's why I like using this brush. Maybe daily usage may make our skin dry so I use on alternative days. Its been 2 months and still the fibers of this brush din't get torn or came out. I recommend this brush to all of you, who have serious concern about keeping skin super clean.



I would like to share that I am so happy for Narendra modi becoming PM and Jayalalitha becoming CM(Tamil Nadu). My hearty congratulations to them :) I have faith that they will make India a better country soon(Fingers crossed !!). Coming to my novel part, I have started Vampire Academy Series and I am left with 40 pages in the first part ( I wish I had compelling and healing powers like lizza!! ). What would you do if you get those power ?

Maybelline colossal range review

Hiii all, hope everything is going fine!! Today I am going to review yet another Maybelline's productThis product is going to be very interesting because, Maybelline's first product to launch was a mascara. I got this soon after it was launched in India but posting it now..

Okie let me share a story which you might probably know. Its okie read on,this is my version of it. A girl called Mabel used to apply kohl by mixing Vaseline with coal dust to her eyelashes to make it look fuller and thicker. Her brother thought he must help his sis with it and did some study in chemistry and brought out an amazing mascara product(What a brother uh ?? my brother would say go wash your make up..!!). That's how the name "Maybelline" came. Okie without any further ado, I will start with the mascara I'm holding on.

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara

Maybelline claims:

Its unique formula plumps lashes, one by one, giving your eyelashes dramatic volume. Apply on a single coat and voila! You’re ready for the party!
Here’s why you’ll love it:
• Comes with a patented Mega Brush which prevents clumping
• Has a unique formula that plumps eyelashes
• Comes in waterproof and washable variants
• Can be easily removed with soap and water 

How to use-

Apply it from root to tip. Keep the brush close to your roots, wiggle a bit and slowly take it out reaching the very end of the lash.

My personal views about this product:


This one does make a difference when  applied, It opens up our eyes and giving us fresh look  all day long. It makes my lashes look thicker and longer. Its a good product to use when we go out for birthday party or even for everyday use. This doesn't make us look like we applied grease on our lashes unless we din apply it properly.


 It comes in a cute yellow bottle with a  cap. It's easy to carry even though it looks big.I love the color combo- yellow & purple. (Well we cannot carry it in our jean pocket without looking funny :D)


It has a fine bristles which doesn't clump our lashes. We just need to apply it properly to get a dramatic looking lashes. 

Staying Power-

This stays put for 7+hours on our eyes. While removing it with face wash, it goes off in little chaps, but completely goes off if we use a makeup remover.


It is waterproof as Maybelline claims. It can stand the tears,drizzle even if you pour a bucket of water.


It's a budget friendly mascara if you want a good brand and with super good quality.

Maybelline colossal kajal review

My personal views about this product:

Staying Power-

It stays for long time better than eyeconic kajal if you are wondering. This product does smudge.


It gives dark or jet black color pay off. The only thing that turns me off is, we should have only  little product out of the can otherwise it tends to break while applying, Mine breaks often.


It gives a nice matte black color. We will love it once applied. Actually I think it's a mixture of black and gray don't know why I get that feel.

Availability -

In malls and even almost all shopping websites. 


It is soft but not the softest. Better than other kohl in this price line i would say.

What I think could have been better:


It breaks and breaks my heart too. How many of you closed it with the cap when the product is still out? I did it many times.


This is water-resistant, but not water proof. It does fade away when rubbed with water. This is not an issue for me but for some it might be.


This does smudge a bit and needs re-application.

Okie as mentioned in my previous post (Click). The Edge Of Never is Awesome. I won't say its a true love story, but every girl will wish for a guy like Andrew (In novel) and I don't blame Camryn falling for him. It's a beautiful story showing how two characters start falling in love for each other during a journey. When we are facing downside in our lives, we should definitely take a break and go out for a while. That's how the story starts, it goes forward through a beautiful love, romance and fun filled journey, then comes a heart wrenching and breath taking moment which I couldn't take at all but survived somehow. Don't worry, it is a happy ending novel. It's a journey that I wish never ends. This book does have adult content in it so I don't recommend this to people below 18 years. Give it a try if you are into love stories. Happy weekend friends!!

Biotique Chlorophyll Gel Review

Hiiii!!!   I found it little late, but not too late,Aloe Vera it is!! This makes our skin soft and spot-free(^-^). Aloe Vera is considered as a sacred source of nature, it contains vitamins including A, C, E, folic acid, choline, B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6. This has 90% of water content, it hydrates our skin and keeps it look healthy.If you have aloe vera planted in your home(You Lucky),cut the stem and place it in the fridge then rub it all over your skin that gives a soothing effect for which you may be burning your pocket in the parlor. Only if you don't have it in home ,go for products.Whenever I get breakout my mom would advise me to use aloe vera which I hardly hear.One month back when I went to mall I was checking for some good face mask and my mom from behind me spotted this product and told me to get it(Okie,just to appease her I got this one that time) 

Biotique claims

This refreshing, anti-bacterial moisturizer is blended with chlorophyll and extracts of seaweed, sea algae, aloe vera and gum Arabic to tighten pores, avert blemishes, and keep skin nourished and clear without flaking.


Chinai ghas (Gelidium amansii), Kuda (Holorrhenna antidysenterica), Ghrit kumari (Aloevera indica), Kikkar gaund (Acacia Arabica), Samundir Kai (Gelidium amansii), Himalayan Water Q.S.

How to use it

Apply evenly over cleansed face and neck, morning and evening, to refresh skin. Also recommended for post hair removal, to soothe and condition the skin against redness and irritation.

Price: Rs. 199(Keeps increasing don't know why). 

My personal views about this product:
·        Finish-This is a green color gel which is very thin.Once I massage it all over  face it forms a thin layer over face but did not leave any color on me.It does have a cooling effect which makes me happy after application .I would best suggest to use this product as night skin care avoiding your mouth area.

·        Consistency- It has very thin and flowing consistency, but not running. It does make your face sticky :(

·        Fragrance-It has a mild fragrance that lasts only till applying.So people with sensitive noses like me need not worry about it.

·        Packaging- Its a tub with a cover.Personally, I don't like tub packaging that too for acne treatment they shouldn't keep tub packaging as we have to use it carefully every time.

·        Result-This product reduced my black spots considerably and evens out my skin.This keeps my skin hydrated and healthy.For this one reason I recommend this to all.But it wouldn't totally stop acne but definitely reduce occurrence and its size.I would say this product is better than astringents(Why did i spend so much on it?? Sigh!!) as those dehydrated my skin badly :(

·        Availability -This one is available in all shopping website (  some local super markets and in Malls.You can buy this in their own site too.                                                                                                        

What I think could have been better:

·         Packaging-If i see a person working in biotique i would say "Please change it to tube or with a flip-flop cover or else at least the color,its boring".

·         Sticky-It does make your face sticky after application. 

Will I re-purchase this product:

  • Yeah!!..Till i find a non-sticky one with good packaging or till i start growing my own aloe vera plant.

Just curious I want to know how many people love to wear green color ??Actually i started liking green colour aftering seeing the saree samantha wore in em mayam chesave.
Okie coming to my book time. Now The edge of never is passing my time.This is a romantic novel.If i number it then  this would be my third romantic novel.I am half way through it and got attached to it when the  bus journey started(In the novel).Will tell about my journey through the book in my next post.
