Ecotique: Aromatherapy Stress Relief Blend Oil Review

Hello Readers,

Today i am going to review an essential oil from Ecotique. Its the Aromatherapy stress relief blend oil

Essential oils are good, powerful and are considered a natural remedy to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, relax the mind & body. 

This particular essential oil for stress relief is 100% natural and is a combination of Spearmint, Lavender Bulgarian, Lemon, Rosemary pure essential oils.

Lavender Bulgarian  helps in soothing and calming, Lemon helps in refreshing, Rosemary helps with stress, Spearmint helps in relaxing.

It comes in a blue transparent glass bottle with a screw cap. It also has a stopper inside. But when i got the bottle it was leaking. This is not travel friendly as per me. This 10ml bortle is priced at 499rs. Its shelf is 2 years from mfg date. The scent is medium types…not too strong and not mild either. 

My Experience:

I have used this quite a number of times by adding 3-4 drops in my bathing water. My entire bathroom gets filled with the scent of this essential. The scent gives so much positivity to my mind and provides the much needed relief. It brings a sense of calm and my mind is at peace. This is the best way to relax your mind and body after you have had an stressful day. With combination of so many pure essential oils it surely helps to cope with stress. This makes my bathing sessions so much more peaceful and gives me that luxurious feeling too. You can also simply add a drop of this essential oil to your cream and massage on your hands to help you relax. 

Pros

  • 100% Natural
  • Contains the best essential oils
  • Calming, relaxing, uplifting
  • Effective
  • Helps relieve stress

Cons

  • Not travel friendly
  • Costly

Island Kiss Lip Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Hey Sassy Ladies, Today i am going to do a quick review of lip moisturizers from ISLAND KISS . Winter or not lip care products are a must.There’s not a day when i dont apply a lip moisturizer. Its a must for me and i am sure for you too. Lips being the ‘center of attraction’ of your face its very important that you keep them moisturised. Nobody likes dry &  chapped lips. Also… Having a lip balm is not enough but having a good lip balm that instantly moisturizes your lips is a must.

Well let me tell you that Island Kiss is an indian brand that had already launched back in 2015 with 3 variants of Lip Moisturizers. I have reviewed them on my blog. You can read it HERE

Recently Island kiss launched 2 new variants of lip moisturizers – 1) Black Rose & Grenade Rouge. 2) Flamingo Pink & Peonies. 


The lip moisturizer comes in a tube with a screw cap and has a slant applicator which enables easy application. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. The packaging looks so Inviting and Sexy such that it will tempt you to buy it. And just like the packaging the names of the lip moisturizers are pretty alluring.

The Lip Moisturizers are

  • 100% Natural
  • 100% Pure
  • Organic
  • Cruelty free
  • Not tested on animals
  • Petroleum Free
  • Non Toxic
  • Safe
  • Provides Sun Protection

Price – 499Rs (Price is same for both the variants)

Size – 14gms

Best Before – 36 months 

Ingredients – 

  • Tropical kokum
  • Avocado & Mango Butter
  • Organic Beeswax
  • Stevia
  • Organic carrot seed oil
  • Pure castor oil
  • Rich vitamin E oil
  • Macadama nut oil
  • Black rose essential rose (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Pomegranate seed oil (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Citrus essential oil ( Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Peony Essential oil  (Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Natural Organic colour

The Black Rose & Grenade Rouge  gives a nice pinkish red  tint and smells purely of rose. I love the smell since its soothing & not strong but also stays on for a longer time.

The Flamingo Pink & Peonies gives a baby pink tint making your lips look like they are naturally pink. I can’t really make out what it smells like but the smell is good for sure. Not strong but soothing. Since it contains Peony essential oil i guess the smell must be of that. 

My Experience – The Lip Moisturizers glides easily on the lips and gives them an instant shot of hydration making lips super soft.Its smooth on the lips and not sticky at all. I love touching my lips again and again because they appear that soft. It keeps my lips hydrated for a good 4-5 hours without drinking or eating anything. I love how it instantly revives badly chapped lips…..Also that it contains natural ingredients that are good enough to eat 😁The smell is also soothing and not strong. The way it feels on my lips i feel like applying it often.

Rating 5/5

ODIVA: Nail Enamel Remover Wipes Review

Hello Readers,

Few days back i had reviewed a Gel finish Nail paint from ODIVA and pretty much loved it. Today i am back with a review of yet another amazing product  also from ODIVA Its the Nail Enamel Remover wipes.

Removing nailpaints is quite a messy affair when you have to  grab the cotton ball and the nailpaint remover. As there are chances that the nailpaint remover might spill. Also removers containing acetone tend to dry out your nails. But with ODIVA nailpaint remover wipes you dont have to worry anymore. Why ?? Because ODIVA nail enamel remover wipes are easy to use , acetone free and can be used anywhere anytime 🙂 

What the brand claims?

Wipes away nail polish instantly, no mess, no spills ! On a flight, in a classroom, in the boardroom. Anytime Anywhere….Its nourishing. Vit E formula is gentle on nails, cuticles and skin. Acetone free. Lint free.

Packaging: The nailpaint remover wipe comes inside a white packet and the packets further comes enclosed in a black colour cardboard box. All information such as Ingredients, price, expiry, Direction of use has been mentioned on the cardboard box. The box contains 5 wipes. Each wipe is individually packed in a white packet. The wipe is like a small white cloth in rectangular shape. The wipes are folded into 2parts and slipped into white packet.

Here is a picture of a used wipe. The wipe is actully of white colour. You can see in the picture the size of the wipe.

The box of 5 wipes is priced at 65Rs.

Best Before 18months 

My Experience: I tore opened the White packet with my hand. You dont need a scissor, it can be easily torn with hand. What i noticed is that the wipe was not watery and did not leak. It is not like wet wipes. But it contains oil like thing. When i wiped out the nailpaint it leaves oil on the nails and doesnt makes the nails and areas around cuticles dry and the wipe did a pretty good job. It removes the nailpaint easily and you dont have to struggle with it. Though you might want to struggle a bit while removing glitter nailpaints since these wipes are free from acetone. Also while removing dark colours it wont stain your nails and skin around the nails. You might have noticed that when you use acetone removers they leave a white substance on your nails and make your nails dry and rough. ODIVA nail enamel remover wipes wont dry out your nails but it will leave your nails looking shiny and smooth. The best part of these wipes is that you can use it again n again. I used a wipe to remove nailpaint from both my hands and after i was done i folded the wipe and slipped it back into the white packet. Then after few days i used the same wipe again and it did pretty much the same job. It wont dry out so you can use one wipe like 6-7 times.

I would definitely recommend this product to all the ladies out there who love to pamper their nails often 🙂

Pros

  • Good Packaging
  • No leakage
  • Acetone free
  • Contains Vitamin E
  • No strong smell at all ( Unlike u find in other acetone nail polish removers)
  • Travel friendly
  • Doesn’t dry out nails
  • One wipe can be used 6-7 times


Cons

  • Some may find it a bit pricey
  • Available only on few online shopping sites

Inoface Modeling Cup Pack (Acerola) : Skin18.com

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another product review. This time something different and fun. What i am reviewing today is something that i have tried for the first time- A modeling cup pack from SKIN18. This cup pack is of INOFACE brand. Whenever i get something from Skin18 its always new to me thats because Skin18 has thousands of skincare brands that i haven’t even heard of and i am always as excited as hell to try the products 🙂 So when i got this Modeling cup pack i was confused and excited both at the same time.

The Modeling Cup Pack is a peel off face mask in Acerola variant which is effective for skin moisturisation and skin soothing. The packaging is that of like a thick plastic icecream cup with a screw cap. The packaging looks pretty for sure. The details mentioned on the cup are in korean language so i had to hop on to their website to check out the details. The face mask is in a powder form in baby pink colour. It doesn’t comes ready, you have to prepare it. Also inside the cup is a spatula/stirrer to be used while preparing the face mask.

About the product:-

INOFACE has around 10 types of Modeling cup packs and one of them is the ACEROLA variant that i am reviewing today. 

Directions of use:-

My Experience: So when i used it i did not take the entire powder of the cup. What i did is poured the powder using spatula 4-5 times in a plastic container and added water accordingly And stirred it. For me this was enough for my entire face for one time use. You need not use the entire powder in the cup. You can use it later on. The cup contains powder which can last upto a month. So after preparing the mask i immediately applied it on my face. As directed i kept it on for 15mins. During this period i did not notice any such irritation.The mask does not have any kind of fragrance. Once the mask dried i  washed it water as i wasn’t able to peel it off. This is no sort of peel of mask as the brand claims. What i noticed is that it makes the skin clean. It takes away the oilyness from the skin and leaves it looking fresh. It doesn’t dries out the skin. So its good for both oily and dry skin. Overall a good product but it wont peel off. This is where the product fails for me. 
Currently on sale at- 367.87INR for 15gm

Purederm Moisturizing Cucumber Pack (Wash off mask)

image

The main ingredients in the cucumber pack are Collagen, olive oil, vitamin E, Cucumber extract. The cucumber extract helps in moisturising the skin and making it healthy. Olive oil present in it helps in skin brightening and softening.   The Cucumber mask is in a gel form which is transparent and smells of cucumber.
Packaging : The wash off cucumber mask comes in a mint green colour pouch. The pouch contains all information regarding Ingredients, Directions of use, Best Before etc. You can easily carry this while travelling.
My Experience : I opened the pouch and squeezed it a little to remove the gel and applied it with my fingers on my face. A little quantity was sufficient for the entire face. I applied and kept in on for 10-15minutes and then washed off with warm water. After patting my face dry i noticed that my skin was soft. I did not feel any dryness and the need to use a moisturizer. It does softens my skin and makes it appear clean and bright. I love this mask which gives an instant shot of moisturization. The effect lasted upto a good 5-6 hours. This pouch contains gel which can be used 4-5 times.

Luke Hydrogel Eye Patch for Wrinkle(Red):

image

This type of eye patch is suggested for those with obvious lines under eye. Often usage can fade out lines and wrinkles. The eyepatch contains extract of kelp and chamomile which has anti aging functions,The hydrogel has moisturising functions, and Q10 present in it helps increase elasticity of skin.

The pack contains 2patches, one for each eye. The patches are not resuseable. So this is a one time use.
My Mom’s Experience
I dont have wrinkles under my eyes so i asked my mom to try it. She placed the patches under her eyes for 20minutes. She felt a cooling sensation throughout. After removing the patches i asked her how she felt. She said that her skin feels tight and clean. Regarding the wrinkles cant comment as of now. Because for that the product needs to be used often.

Luke Lemon Tea Tree Nose Cleansing Strip:

image

Luke nose cleansing strip adheres to dirt and sebum in the pores, removes impurities and lifts away blackheads on nose. The bright yellow colour pack contains 1strip for a one time use. Lemon Tea Tree is good for oily, sensitive and acne prone skin.
Ingredients include Vitamin E & Aloe Vera extract to soothe skin,licorice root ectract to relieve irritation and hamamelis Virginiana to tighten pores after cleansing.

My Experience
When i removed the strip from the pack i was welcomed to a not so good smell. It was very strong and honestly i didn’t like it. After applying on the nose i felt so uncomfortable because of the smell. I kept the strip on for 15-20minutes. After removing what i noticed is that it removes blackheads and leaves the skin clean and soft. After removing i noticed brown impurities on the strip. It does the job of cleaning the nose well. Would definitely recommend this product. Times when you dont feel like going to the salon this strip will come to your rescue. Also while travelling this product is great to carry for instant cleaning as you dont need to wash off your nose after use.
