NEW LAUNCH - NELF COSMETICS PERFECT LIGHTING WATERPROOF PRIMER

Recently I heard of a new brand & without giving it a thought, I decided to try some of their products on my blog. The brand was Nelf USA.When i researched profoundly about the brand, I was just awestruck with their ideology or thoughts backing the brand as they were specifically made for the interests of all women.Sharing with you peeps the idea of Nelf USA.
 
About the Brand -:
NELF Cosmetics, named after the aspiration of women to look great in four leagues i.e. NAIL, EYE, LIPS & FACE, uniquely offers a permanent collection of every day basics and on-trend shades. Known for rich pigments and high payoff in products is what places NELF in its own panache and distinguishes the line as a leader in the colossal color cosmetics industry.
Our inspiration is today's woman who believes in doing her own thing in her own terms and getting what she came here for. We at NELFusa™, by creating the wide range of make-up , just help them in doing so.
 
Why to use Primer -:
I am not a professional makeup artist. But what i have learned over the years that to ace any perfect look, a perfect base is the key. Primer is the ultimate tool to achieve a flawless look.
  • tightens pores,preventing face from becoming oily ;
  • uses less foundation, giving more use out of your face makeup;
  • fills fine lines & wrinkles ;
  • Blurs imperfections & give a radiant glow to the skin.

Ingredients-: Cyclomethicone, Squalane, Phenyl dimethicone,Tocopherol, Propylparaben.
Packaging -:
The Outer Packing is black cardboard box with red stripes.The Primer comes in a sturdy see through Glass Bottle with Black Pump Dispenser on it.
All the relevant information is printed on the outer packaging & not on the glass bottle, which makes it difficult to retain the directions provided.

How to Apply-:
Take out a small blob of primer on the palm of your hand and dot the primer section by section on the face.Start by dotting on the forehead then cheeks, chin, nose and upper neck.Apply to face with fingertips or a makeup sponge to even out the skin tones.
Wait a few seconds for the primer to dry before applying foundation.

Price -: Rs 500 for 30 ml
 
Availability -: 
My Take on the product -: Nelf Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Waterproof Primer is a crystal clear gel based primer.The texture of the primer is slightly on thicker side.It is weightless, non greasy skin & feels like silk on skin. Apply a little amount of primer on the face and then just blend it with fingertips or a beauty blender.
     It literally creates magic on the skin as it makes the face a beautiful canvas to paint or in my terms to do makeup upon. It absorbs excess sebum & makes fine lines, blemishes, visible pores diminish.It made my makeup stay for good 6-8 hours.You can clearly see the visible difference in the picture that how all the lines, pores, etc have reduced so much and the skin looks more moisturised than before.

      The primer prevent the foundation from creasing and the light-reflecting properties of it helps to create that gorgeous, dewy glow.The best part of the product is that it is Silicone Primer which prevents moisture loss from the skin.I have Normal/Combination skin & it worked great on my skin.
       An important reason for which the primer will not score full marks is that it is a non-tinted primer, so you need to apply foundation while in case of tinted primers,an extra step is reduced from my makeup routine.             
            
SF Rating -:  9/10
 
Final Verdict-:It is definitely a must buy for everyone specially for the beginners, to understand what amazing change a primer brings &of course it is reasonably priced.Another fact that made me love this product that it creates a thin layer that stays between the skin and makeup. 
       So girls go ahead &choose your primers wisely as it creates a smooth perfect base for makeup to go on & no one would appreciate an imperfect makeup look.Have you tried this primer and share your experiences about other primers in the comment box below... 

Love u,

Get your Beauty Personalised with Aplava.com

Hi Beauties,

Today's blog post is about discovering yourself. According to a survey, most women are unknown of their skin types, its problems, its tone, etc and in all of these things, they end up using products not suitable for them which leads to breakouts, itching, etc. At the same time, market is flooded with  a constant parade of promises and conflicting claims , it becomes almost impossible to lay our hands to the correct stuff.
             While searching the web for a certain product, I came to a new website Aplava.com. It is about "AAp luv".
"It is a start up beauty company providing every customer of their, an experience of Divine Beauty. For busy women/men on the go, it is a personalized beauty service tailored to your taste, budget & lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day."

Brief Introduction of the ideology of the brand -
                 Aplava (pronounced  as “Aap luv”) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. They believe that Beauty is you!!!!

I always love my life as a beauty blogger because it helps me to explore new products, places, brands,etc. But since buying online is not everyone cup of tea, it is difficult to match the exact tone,colour, texture of beauty products while buying them online especially. So here comes as a saviour their Personalised Beauty Section as it gives you a virtual tour of your Skin along with the help of professional beauty experts & dermatologists by building your BEAUTY PROFILE.


         Created my own Beauty Profile to help my skin get perfectly curated skin care products for it and got some recommendations for the same.

The Website has a wonderful range to offer including many international, national, drugstore, organic brands ranging from Dermalogica , Avene , Braun, Lakme, Garnier, Skintruth , Wild Earth, etc.

            I was wondering for Skintruth Equalising skincare regimen for my sister to gift her on her birthday but was unable to find it on major leading websites but I was able to locate it on this website. Ahh!!! finally got it after spending so much time.You can also check skintruth products online on the website.

           The website has a wonderful layout, is easy to use, you don’t have to look for product details as you get perfect details about the product, ingredients, How to use , About the Brand, Shipping & Returns, all information at one place only. It offers free delivery over Rs. 999/- and the best part is that the company provides time to time startling promotional offers which tends to fit more products in our budget . It also provide the option of Following the Price i.e. Keep track of the price drops on this item as and when the price of the particular product will drop, an email would pop up which in turn will help to save some more bucks.
          With all these extremely good features , I am so excited to shop with Aplava.com. Now on my wishlist, the first product is  Lakme perfect radiance Intense Whitening Serum which I am getting almost at a discount of almost 25% (including cashback also), Skintruth Skincare Regimen with discount of almost 35% - 40% and a lot more...I will update all you wonderful people when I will receive it in a haul post.
           
Brief Review by our Co-Contributor -:  Our Co - Contributor Namrata Agarwal (Soon Mom to be) also shopped some Sebamed Baby Products from Aplava for her soon to be arriving baby and here is her brief and relevant review of it. The online ordering procedure is simple like that of any online portal, but what I loved more about the website is prompt delivery within 3-4 days(meanwhile my order was delivered on the date of Constituency Elections in our city),nice & intact packaging, every item individually well packed so as to avoid spillage. I ordered some Sebamed Baby products which were 100% authentic and imported from Germany.The date of Mfgr. was of  2016, which is again a big plus for user as they provide you goods with longer shelf life. Sharing some of the pics of her order...



SF Rating -:  9/10
 
Final Verdict-: I am yet to share my personal experience of the products to be received but yes I am totally amazed with the website design, its ease to use, and most importantly its emphasis on buying the products apt for you in your budget. I don't find any cons of the website except COD charges which keeps me bothering & sometimes it take quite a time to load. Will keep you guyz updated of my haul from Aplava.com.

The Nature's Co. Garlic Anti Acne Cream Review, Swatch & Photos

Heya Beauties..
           I am back in the blogging world after a leap of holidays due to my examinations...So without wasting any further time, let's get back to work. The more closer my monthly menstrual cycle reaches,the more i become prone to acnes. For this,i consulted my dermatologist who claimed that it is normal as it helps to remove impurities from the body & face. But honestly i just hate this tym as who dosn't love to have flawless skin.Hence, I got to try Garlic Anti Acne Cream from The Nature's Co., so here i am to review this cream for all of you. Starting the review with the ideology of the brand.
The Nature's Co. Garlic Anti Acne Cream
The Nature's Co. : More About The Brand
            At the Nature’s Co, nature is a way of life. A strict adherence of ‘all natural’ way is followed while making their products.. The products contain the natural ingredientsthat are against animal cruelty, vegan and of best quality from across the globe. All the products are manufactured using natural hill spring water.Age old, traditional natural remedies have been meticulously sourced and then recreated in convenient, modern forms that are practical, hassle free and innovative.

Claims -:
The Garlic Anti Acne Cream is a part of their Earthbone Range which is based on the belief :

Earthborne:
Of the earth and by the earth, this range is an embodiment of the earth and all the nurturing properties that are found in its soil, minerals and mud. Enriching and reviving.
  • Get healthy, acne-free skin with the power of nature. Garlic Anti-Acne Cream is a powerful detoxifier. 
  • Its antibacterial and antifungal properties help fight against acne by reducing it drastically.
  • While the antioxidants present in it help repair and protect the skin.

Ingredients -:
Garlic extract, Tomato extract, Olive oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin-E

Packaging -:
The Cream comes in a opaque tub packaging with a lid mentioning all the details on the jar. The tub has a pull up covering, preventing the cream from spilling.I am pretty satisfied with the tub packaging except that there are some hygiene issues.

How to Use -: Wash your face thoroughly. Apply a small amount directly onto acne as required. Leave it overnight for best results.

Price -: Rs 895 for 50 ml

Availability -: 
To buy on  Nykaa.com , click here

My Take on the product -: The cream is of light brown in colour with thick texture.Frankly when i heard the name Garlic in it, i was a little susceptible that it would smell foul  but on the contrary the fragnance is of Sweet Vanilla which lingers for quite sometime after applying the cream.
         The cream gets easily absorbed in the skin. I applied the cream as directed and after applying it, i feel a sensation on my skin (similar to that when we apply bleach) making me believe that the formula is working on my skin. The cream begins to dry within 30-45 mins of its application giving a matte effect on my skin.

Swatch of  TNC Garlic Anti Acne Cream
         Considering the result it shown on my skin that my acne were reduced to a certain level, but since it is not a magic wand,so it took time to get rid of them completely. The thing which i disliked about the cream is that in the morning, my skin tends to be oily which is not on other days when i am not applying the cream.

SF Rating -:  8.4/10

Final Verdict-: Overall, i like the product. It is a wonderful option for all ladies & lads if you want a handy, paraben free, organic cream for fighting acnes. Its anti bacterial as well as anti fungal properties adds more confidence in the cream.Still not too sure about its results(will keep you peeps updated)as pimples & acnes are developed through oil production, dead cells, clogged pores, etc. & it is different for every person, so will suggest to try it out before purchasing.
Have you guyz tried this cream? Would love to know ur experience with this cream. Till then, stay connected for next post..

Love u,
StyloNiks...
