Beginner's guide to wearing contact lens| Aqualens contact lens review

Are you a dedicated contact lens wearer or planning to buy sometime soon? Here's something you definitely should be knowing before taking the leap.

Contact lenses are a great substitute to wearing glasses, be it with power or just colour lenses. 



Recently Aqualens(marketed by Lenskart)has been trending in the market for its amazing and affordable lens collection of both daily disposables and monthly changing lenses. I have been wearing lenses for the past 5 years and have been choosing Alcon lenses. Don't get me wrong, I love Alcon lenses too, but I wanted to try Aqualens for a very long time and I finally made the switch!

Before we dive into the detailed review  here's some things you should be knowing:

Benefits of wearing contact lenses:

1.keeps your power stable for a longer time/prevents fluctuations
2.there's no uneasiness 
3.less drama than glasses, provides better side vision
4. If you are someone who performs on stage often, contact lenses are a better option for you.
5. If you are someone with a high power, definitely opt for lenses because they are cheaper than glasses.

There's an unpopular opinion saying "Contact lenses are only for style purposes and they are harmful to the eyes"  This is totally false.

Consequences:
1. They can lead to corneal infection if and only if not maintained properly .
2. If you have opted for monthly disposable lenses,  you need to maintain your lenses.

Detailed Aqualens review

The lenses come with a free solution

Having cylindrical power I purchased Aqualens 24 Hours Toric monthly lenses for my all day use. They are also available in 10 hours using packages

Packaging:
The lenses come in a box containing 3 lenses. The packaging is quite amazing and the lenses are in sturdy individual packs with enough fluid in each. 


Price:
Each box retails for 1100 INR.(3 lenses)
Currently Lenskart is offering a good deal on Aqualens . The discounted price is 899 INR. 
You can buy them on on Aqualens website or on Lenskart app. You can use my code SANCM61K for 50 Lk cash! Click here


If you are someone who wants to buy colour lenses you can avail them for 299 INR Only! Which I think is a pretty much great deal!

Features:
  • UV blocking
  • High water content
  • HD clarity vision
  • Made in UK
Other features

My experience with Aqualens 
  • I had all day comfort wearing my contacts
  • Gave me a very clear vision that is commendable
  • Never had any infections or irritations

Overall had a very pleasant experience, thank you Lenskart . I had ordered them on their app during the lockdown and got my delivery withing 4 days! Their store managers where always there to guide me over phone while placing the order.

Should you be buying this? 
Definitely. A thumbs up for this product❤

Beat the Heat This Summer With These Skin care tips| Must have products

April 24, 2020 3

Biotique |Mamaearth|Wow science|Kama Ayurveda|Pond's|Nykaa|Himalaya|Neutrogena| Vlcc


Looking for the perfect products /tips this summer? Look no further , we have it all sorted
Summer seasons usually a huge toil on our face and body and mainly  lead to excessive sun tans, fungal infections , spreading of acnes among other ailments. This is definitely the time to be taking extra care of your face and body.

Our skin tends to secrete more facial oils and that in turns makes our skin oilier.
Listed down are some tips that will surely help you in these desperate times!

Note: even if you are indoors most of the time , don't miss your skincare routine!
Remember Consistency is the key.


1. Cleanse your face but don't over do it

Even people with dry skin feels a sudden secretion of facial oils on their face which in turn clogs the pores.
The T zone of our face is the oiliest. We need to wash our face with a cleanser at least 2 times and maximum 3 times. Over doing this step will strip your skin of the essential facial oils.

Recommended: Biotique Honey Gel Foaming Facewash at 119 INR.
 Or
Mamaearth Ubtan Facewash for 249 INR

2.Tone and moisturize your face

Toning and Moisturising brings out that healthy glow in our skin.
Toning your skin is essential, if you are someone who never used toner before, how is the time to add it to your beauty regime. Try choosing an alcohol free toner. A toner maintains the right pH level of your skin and keeps it at its purest state.

Recommended: Biotique Pore Tightening Toner with Himalayan Water priced at 175 INR or
Plum Green Tea Alcohol free Toner priced at 390 INR.

Sometimes you may feel like applying Moisturisers are make you sweat a lot and therefore skipping it will be fine . Please do not do this, this step will render your face drier than before.

Recommended: Pond's light moisturizer at 120 INR or
Mamaearth Oil-free Face Moisturiser priced at 299 INR.
For your body you may try-
Kama Ayurveda Mandarin Vetiver Moisturizer

3. Always , always, always apply a sunscreen.
This step is not to be missed at all.
I agree applying some sunscreen makes our face sweat more.  Choose a non comedogenic sunscreen especially if you are suffering from acne.

Recommended: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock sunscreen at 199 INR or
Vlcc matte look sunscreen

4. Use a face pack / clay mask



Using a face mask during summer is most beneficial now. Profuse sweating may clog our pores and lead to blackheads or whiteheads.
Try using any face mask of your choice.
 You can even make one DIY with all homemade natural ingredients available in your kitchen.

Recommended: Nykaa Clay it Cool mask priced at 599 INR OR
Himalaya Neem face pack priced at 75 INR. ( This product has been my favorite since the time I suffered from acne, I can never find a substitute for this )

5. Keep applying lipbalm

To everyone who needs to hear this: Your lips need equal amount of nourishment both during summers and winters. Try using a lipbalm which has some amount of SPF in it before stepping out. Keeping your lips bare may cause then to crack even more.
Apply your favorite all time lip balm for this summer.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock, SPF 50 Review

April 02, 2020 0

The ultimate sunscreen you need this summer is the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock sunscreen.

Be it Scorching Summer or Chilly winter, a good sunscreen is an essential part of everyone's vanity. Be it a man or a woman. 

Over the years I have used  multiple sunscreens of different brand like VlCC, Lakme, Oshea etc until I picked up the Neutrogena sunscreen .
I purchased the one with SPF 50.
It's also available with SPF 100.
This product totally changed the skincare game! 

Sunscreens are always thought to be greasy and pore clogging. But with Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry touch Sunblock sunscreen, spf 50 ( dermatologically tested, formulated in USA)you won't feel you have applied a sunscreen.

NOTE: whether its scorching summer or chilly winter always remember to apply a liberal amount of sunscreen at least 10-15 mins before stepping out!

Let's move on to the detailed review:

Packaging :
The suncreen comes in a standard sized tube with minimal chances of leakage, it's totally travel friendly so you can it with you even on vacations. 

Fragrance and consistency:
The Neutrogena suncreen has a very pleasant fragrance and it has a body lotion- like consistency.  
The suncreen is very light on skin and doesn't clog pores.


Price:
30 ml retails for 199 INR.
88 ml retails for 549 INR.

The claims made by this Neutrogena sunscreen:

  • This product features helioplex, a breadth of stabilised sunscreen technologies that delivers superior protection from the sun
  • Dry-touch technology absorbs excess sunscreen oils, leaving a clean, lightweight, non-shiny finish
  • It goes on easily and absorbs quickly for an invisible, light-weight feel on the skin
  • Sweatproof, water proof
  • Oil free and PABA Free
  • Non- comedogenic

Click on picture for a clear projection 

How I prefer to use:
1.When I apply makeup: After toning and Moisturising my face, I apply the sunscreen. Make sure you apply this before adding a layer of primer or cc cream.

2. When I don't apply makeup: just after toning and Moisturising my face I apply a
This sunscreen .

My experience using this suncreen:

I really like how this product works, it's highly commendable! If you are someone living a tropical type climate, this is definitely for you! This Neutrogena sunscreen leaves your face with a pleasant fragrance and a non oily,  healthy look  and doesn't even feel heavy on skin. 

My skin type is combination kind and it's very sensitive,  prone to acne. After continuous using this for about 2 months,  I never noticed a single breakout because of this product. 

Summers are all about profusely sweating face and this product is a blessing. Neutrogena suncreen is Sweatproof, waterproof, resists rub-off which is all we need this summer!

Faces Canada Magneteyes Eyeliner Review

March 23, 2020 2

Faces Canada launches the great Magneteyes series of mascara,eyeliner and kajal


This range from Faces is so
 effective and affordable in comparison to the other products from its competing brands. Personally I loved this Magnet eyes launch.
We can always trust makeup products from Faces without giving it a second thought.


Here's a brief review for you'll before you buy or even if you have already bought one.


Packaging:
The packaging is so cute,small and sturdy.
The size is so appropriate that you can even slide it into your Jean's pocket .
The eyeliner comes in a red packaging with a very fine applicator which might be a problem in some cases.

Consistency
:
As you apply the liner it gives you a jet black colour but it dries revealing a bit of a glossy finish.
There's no strong smell or any ingredients in its formula which may cause irritations.


What the Faces Canada Eyeliner claims:
  • Gives intense black finish
  • Waterproof 
  • Smudge proof
  • Dries fast 
  • Lasts all day
  • Easy and smooth application 
  • Light weight

And Faces Canada more or less lives up to all of them!

Price:
3.5ml retails for 249 INR.

Experience after using this:
I never expected the eyeliner to turn out in a great way.

  • After my application it really lasted all day long without smudging at all!
  • I never felt I had something applied on my eyelids.
  • It did not melt away even after sweating profusely!
  • While removing the makeup,I had used the Garnier Micellar Water but I had to swipe the cotton pads over my eyelids a multiple times to get the liner off my lids. That is really a drawback.
  • The very fine applicator might be a problem for some. It is very thin . Although it can give you a very fine colour payoff in a single stroke but you may need to apply a multiples times to get a thicker line.
  • And as promised the liner doesn't give an intense black finish but turns out a bit glossy.

Advantages:

  • Dries fast
  • Smudge proof and waterproof 
  • Smooth application
  • Affordable 
  • Pin point precession
  • Travel friendly packaging
Disadvantages:
  • The quantity provided(3.5 ml) is inadequate for the amount of money charged!
  • Problem with the removal of this liner.
Rating:3.5/5 🌟

Should you buy this?
Why not? The brand is well known and trusted . It is a indeed an amazing product at this range!
Like other liners this doesn't give a stinging effect on your eyeliners.
Whatever expectations you have from an eyeliner, this faces eyeliner meets them all!
So ,yes go for it!❤

Safety Measures against Corona Virus (COVID-19)| कोरोना वायरस से बचने के तरीके

March 19, 2020 0

Safety tips against the virus which is terrorizing populations across the nation

So here we are in social distancing and quarantine and panicking beyond anything. This is the most unfortunate time our whole nation has ever faced, the whole humanity is in front of an existential crisis which may take extreme forms.  

Governments declaring closure of schools and offices during this period has left us even more terrified! Everybody questioning in terror:
Is this virus that bad?
The main thing you should be knowing that many people who were admitted to hospitals suspecting they were affected by COVID-19 were released and free from virus.
This particular virus is mainly affecting people with a weak immune system so make sure you take adequate care of yourself in these distressed times.

During this time you should definitely be taking some  measures which will ensure your safety!

1. Always use a hand sanitizer when you are out of your home 
Water facility may not be available always and using sanitizer will actually kill the germs which can cause this virus to spread

Himalaya, Apollo hand sanitizers

2. Try wearing masks
The masks are designed in such a way that they won't facilitate the entry of virus.
But there are some important points you should be knowing before opting for a mask:

  • Wear it positively when serving a patient already infected with COVID-19. 
  • When you travel in public transports or gather at crowded places.
  • Unnecessarily wearing mask won't help.

3. Maintain social distancing and quarantine


Social distancing is now a necessity 
When You are already sure that you have no symptoms, the stranger sitting next to you in any public transport or a crowded place may have symptoms  , so please be careful enough.
I understand people have important work to attend to but try to postpone them if it is not that crucial.
Try and avoid any congregation of 10 or more people.

4 . Always,always maintain personal hygiene.
We may not wash our pair of jeans regularly but after months. But please avoid doing this. Wash your clothes after coming home everytime. This habit will go a long way at this time.

5 . When ordering things from online follow these protocols:.

  • Try leaving the package untouched for more than 12 hours so that if any virus or bacteria is already that,it will die in 12 hours.
  • In case you are ordering clothes, wash them before you wear
  • When you are buying things like books, house essentials things or anything else, make sure they came in sealed packaging.


6. Do not touch your face ,noss or mouth without washing your hands first 
The virus is transmitted rapidly when you touch your most sensitive organs,  please be careful.


Apollo Handwashes

If you have an Apollo Pharmacy near your home ,they are offering great rebates on hand sanitizers,handwashes(3 full sized products for 100INR) in this time of crisis, do call them up for a free home delivery. 

I pray you remain safe and wishing a speedy recovery to all those infected with this deadly virus. Let's fight this battle of life together for humanity 💙

Nivea Underarm Whitening Deodorant Roll on Review| Does it really work?

March 16, 2020 0

Does Nivea Whitening Deodorant Roll on actually help?

Nivea has been our trusted brand for years now. We can easily buy nivea products without giving it a second thought. Now when it comes to the whitening variant in roll on deodorant will it help to improve uneven toned underarms, that's a real concern.
Nivea Whitening smooth skin Deodorant roll on

When it comes to taking care of our sensitive areas like underarms we are a bit choosy as many products may lead to side effects . So recently I chose this roll on from Nivea to test whether it actually does what it claims.
Now let's dive into the review without further ado:

Packaging :
The roll on comes in a standard glass bottle, not very travel friendly as the glass bottle may break and spill the liquid.


Fragnance and Consistency:
The roll on deodorant has a very pleasant and amazing fragnance,  and is a bit creamy in its consistency.

What the brand claims:
  •  It contains mulethi extracts which give you even toned underarms along with odour control.
  • Its 0% alcohol formula combines NIVEA’s gentle care and reliable protection.
  • The NIVEA Whitening Smooth Skin Roll On is reliable for taking care of your underarm skin without any side effects.
  • Helps in uneven tones underarms
  • Keeps odour at bay for the whole day

Does it live upto its claims?
Yes ,totally.  

Price:
50ml retails for 185 INR.


My Experience after using NIVEA roll on:
I have been using this roll on deodorant for at least past 4 - 5 months it really helped me during the summer time when  we tend to sweat a lot . And sometimes it's very embarrassing when we sweat profusely at public places wearing sleeveless dresses or tops. After using this I can assure you completely that it definitely keeps body odour at bay.
As far as whitening underarms is concerned, you need to use it consistently for a few months to get optimum results. 
It won't help you to remove the dark patches and whiten the underarm area completely but it may help you to get at least 2-3 shades lighter underarm area.

Advantages 
  • 0% alcohol in its formulation
  • Contain mulethi extracts
  • Completely keeps odour at bay even when you are involved in sports or gym
  • Cost effective
Disadvantages
  • Glass bottle packaging
  • Doesn't help much in Whitening underarms even with consistent use.
Rating: 4/5🌟

Should you buy this?
Yes ,why not? NIVEA has been our reliable and trusted brand for a long time. This roll on has no side effects and can be used even in the most sensitive skins. So go on , if you are planning to buy this❤

Biotique Natural Makeup Magicolor Lipstick Review| Shade : Creamy Cup

March 10, 2020 0
 Definitely a good news for all Biotique product lovers when we heard them launching it's new natural makeup line.

Recently they launched their exclusive range of natural lipsticks in 15 vibrant shades and we can't stop raving about them.
Best part: This lipsticks are 100% cruelty free,silicon free and totally organic! 
Therefore no place for after-dramas !


Without any further ado let's dive into the detailed review of the lip color.

Packaging:
The lipsticks come in a cute small box packaging and the product comes in a pink outward package! This is travel friendly and you can carry it anywhere for that reapplication if required.


Fragrance and colour:
It has a very unique,pleasant fragnance which you can smell immediately after you apply the colour to your lips. And a creamy consistency.
The fragrance makes it obvious that this lipstick is safe to use and is formulated using natural and harmless products .

I tried the shade: Creamy Cup
*its a shade between brownish colors and red-tones ones.


Price:
4gm retails for 125 INR.

What the brand claims:
  • Magicolor is skincare-infused. Made up of all-natural colour pigments which nourish lips with every application(somewhat true)
  • Creamy formula ensures ultra smooth application (true)
  • These vibrant moisture-rich shades hydrates and nourishes the lips keeping it supple all (true)
  • Biotique Magicolor is pigmented with organic smudge-proof formula(false)
  • 100% organic, silicon-free, cruelty-free(absolutely true)

My Experience:
The Biotique lipstick has a high colour payoff, vibrant shade and a almost- glossy finish. It's a bit creamy in nature which I like the most and doesn't dry or crack lips.
As long as the color is on your lips, they feel a bit hydrated but as soon as it is off ,it renders the lips very dry. In this price range I guess it's a pretty good initiative of Biotique to launch the natural lipsticks.
What I disliked is that the colour doesn't stay ,it transfers very easily and is not smudge proof.  You may need to reapply after a light meal. Otherwise it's an amazing lip colour option .


Advantages
  • Very affordable 
  • Natural,cruelty free,silicone free, organic
  • Hydrates your lips
  • Pigmented shade
Disadvantages 
  • Colour doesn't stay long,transfers easily
  • After makeup removal,  the lips may crack and become extremely dry
  • Doesn't add to lip care as claimed. 
Rating:3.5/5

Should you buy this
We can easily trust Biotique when it comes to their cruelty free,silicon free products. You can definitely give the lipstick a try if you are looking for a high colour payoff one.❤

Your Complete Holi Guide 2020| Tips and Tricks|Skincare|Haircare | Holi Key Liye Kuch Tips

March 02, 2020 0
'Tis' the season of colour! The festival of Holi and Rangolis. And how we love it.That time of the year where we play Balam pichkari and Rang Barshe on full volume!

Now before we get drenched in coloured water and holi colours(gulal) let's talk about some precautions we all need to take to prevent damage to our skin, face and  hair.

The strong chemicals used in formulating the colors are harmful to the human skin and can affect us in a havoc way. Frizzy and damaged hair, tanned skin and discolored arms and and fingers are just some of the after effects
Here are some tips that will allow you to keep safe and protect your skin and hair from any kind of damage so that you can you can play a tension free holi and let ALL BALAM PICHKARI'S OUT!❤


1. Apply a light oil all over your hands and body upto your toes
 you may choose to apply oil overnight or atleast 30 minutes before stepping out . Make sure you use a light weighted oil so that it doesn't make your skin feel sticky or heavy. But do not miss this step ever. Water colours may seep deep into your skin layers and create havoc, and destroy the protective layer of skin.

You can use:
Bio Skincare Oil -200 ml retails for 950 INR   or
Vaadi Herbals Aromatherapy Body Oil-50 ml retails for 85 INR.
(Both are equally good just serving different purposes)

2.Apply a moisturizer and suncreen
Start prepping your skin with a nourishing moisturizer and most positively finish it off by applying a sunscreen. Make sure to run your fingers through your hair strands to apply the leftover sunscreen. This step helps protect the hair from sun damage too.
You can use :
Neutrogena Ultrasheer Dry Touch Sunblock 50+ - 30ml retails for 199 INR.   OR

LAKME Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 pa+++ compact-  retails for 220 INR.


3. Apply atleast two coats of nail paints to both finger and toe nails
We often find the stubborn colours sticking to our hands and mainly to our nail cuticles to prevent such happenings do  keep your nails painted so that the colours can't go deep in your nail cuticles .
You can use:
Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish- retails for 50 INR. Or

Beauty people nail polish retails for 35 INR.
You can get this from OrangeSomething at extra 5% discount when you use my code OSSONCHARY01 during checkout!( I won't earn anything)


4. Applying An oil in conditioner to  your hair strands from roots to tips
 Some may suggest you to oil your hair locks vigorously but then how can we style in oil drenched hair?
An oil in conditioners are those revolutionary products which keep your mane  hydrated and nourished and remove colours faster.You can opt for them
You can use:

Parachute Advansed Coconut Creme Oil for Hair 150ml retails for 120 INR.  OR

Pantene Open Hair Miracle 180ML Retails for 190 INR.


5.Cover your hair with a cap or a scarf
Playing Holi doesn't end in mere 1-2 hours. We all stay out under the scorching sun for atleast 3-4 hours and so you definitely need to take optimum protection to prevent  hair getting damaged. Use a fashionable cap or scarf that gives you both protection and adds up to your style.

The artificial colours used in making Gulals are a Strict No No , This Holi I am sure you will play with safe herbal colours or even can make some on your own. I also urge you to make sure your friends play with safe colours and not mix anything and everything they like !
I just have one earnest request please do not throw gulal or water balloons on stray dogs,cats or any other animals out there! That's not cool.

With this note I wish you all a very Happy and safe Holi, enjoy this day with your close loved ones. ❤

Biotique Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Toner with Himalayan Water Review

February 29, 2020 2

Biotique Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Toner is what every skin deserves!


Lately everyone has been a huge fan of biotique products and their fan base is till growing! The main reason being their Ayurvedic products which makes them a therapeutic skincare products.They have dedicated themselves to treat every Indian skin problem with their amazing product range . 

You might not know whether your skin actually needs this toner until you use this. I am currently obsessing over this toner which has pore tightening properties. Definitely helps if you have acne-prone skin like me!


Bonus: the toners are totally cruelty free,dermatogically tested and chemical free! Which is something we all love.

Now let's move on to the detailed review of this Biotique toner:

Packaging :
The product comes in a sturdy bottle packaging with a green cap on top.
The 120ml bottle will pretty much last for a long time!

I had purchased it online ,on receiving the product I found the product half spilled over! Even though it was totally sealed. Won't term it as travel friendly. 

Consistency and fragnance:
The toner is runny like water in consistency, won't feel heavy on skin and has a hint of green in it. It has a very pleasant smell , and soothes your skin completely.

Price :
120ml retails for 175 INR.

(You can get it from Amazon at just 112 INR!

How to use:
  • Wash your face with a mild facewash or Biotique Bio Honey gel Foaming Facewash(click here) pat dry
  • Take a cotton pad and pour some toner liquid on it OR
