Eva Fresh Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Raspberry - Review

Hey, all !!!!

Who doesn't love a lip balm with color?? I love to have them in my collection. I recently got my hands on Eva Fresh Lips moisturizing lip balm Raspberry. I bought it from a local beauty store. The first thing that attracted me towards this lip balm was its color. It comes in a very cute pink colored packaging. Is there any girl on earth who doesn't love pink?? NO...right?? We all love pink color. So I couldn't resist myself and bought this cutie.


Product Description:  Eva fresh lips moisturizes, nourishes and keeps your lips fresh, smooth and soft all day long.

Directions: Apply as often as required.

Price: 130/- for 4.5g

Shelf Life: 2 yrs


My Personal experience with Eva fresh lips Moisturizing lip balm Raspberry:
This product comes in a cute little pink color tube. But the color of the lip balm is similar to that of raspberry. The lip balm applies smoothly onto the lips and the texture is light. It glides evenly and provides some moisture till the lip balm is on the lips. This lip balm fades off easily. Constant application is required. But it gives a nice color to my lips after application. The color on the lips and the moisture provided by the balm will stay for a maximum of 2 hrs.




Pros:
  • Comes in attractive color and packaging.
  • Glides smoothly on the lips.
  • Gives nice color to the lips
  • No taste and No Fragrance
  • Affordable
  • Easily available
Cons:
  • Fades off easily.
  • Doesn't live up to the claims of making lips soft and moisturized all-day long.
PPD Rating: 3.5/5

Final Words: I would recommend this lip balm for the people who just want some shine and color on the lips and won't mind applying it frequently. I personally like this to apply lip balm while staying at home, busy doing nothing but still want some color on my lips.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser - Review

Hello everyone,

Here is my another product review. This time, its a cleanser. As we discussed earlier in Winter care post, we need to take extra special care in winters and also our skin care routine needs a change. 
Cleanser plays a major role in beauty care as without cleansing, we cannot go forward into another step. Cleanser efficiently removes make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other type of pollutants from the skin of the face. This helps to unclog pores and prevent skin conditions such as acne. The one I am talking about today is from Neutrogena and I am totally in love with it.


Product Description:  Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser is a refreshing facial cleanser that thoroughly removes dirt, oil and dead skin cells while providing long-lasting oil control to improve the look and feel of skin.
-This clinically proven formula lathers to a rich, creamy foam which removes skin's impurities which can build up in pores such as excess oil, dirt and makeup, even stuff you don't even know is there.
-Oil control formula helps reduce surface oil while retaining the skin's natural moisture balance to keep skin clear, fresh and healthy looking.

Directions: Use twice a day. Squeeze a small amount into hands and work into rich lather. Massage onto wet face. Avoid contact with eyes. Rinse thoroughly.

Shelf Life: 2 years

Price: 199/- for 100 g (I bought it for 179/- on amazon.in)


My Personal experience with Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser:
This is an amazing cleanser. This cleanser is available in two quantities 50 g(95/-) and 100 g(199/-). It comes in a white tube which is pretty cool and handy. The flip cap of the tube is very tight resulting in no leakage of the product from inside. This cleanser is in creamy consistency which is also in white color and produces rich lather when rubbed gently. I have to mention the fragrance of the cleanser. Its very mild and refreshing. I love the fragrance.




This cleanser really suits my oily skin. It is very mild and gentle. A small drop of the cleanser is enough for cleansing face and neck. After cleansing my face with this cleanser, my facial skin feels fresh, smooth and healthy. It cleans all the dirt from my face and removes dead skin cells effectively. I am totally in love with this cleanser.

Pros:
  • Very mild and gentle.
  • Removes dirt, oil and dead skin cells effectively.
  • Even a small amount is enough for face and neck.
  • Mild and pleasing Fragrance.
  • Long-lasting oil control.
  • Affordable.
  • Travel Friendly as smaller size is also available.
Cons:
  • It is not mentioned anywhere on the tube about the skin type for which the cleanser suits the best.
  • This Cleanser alone will not be able to clear all the make-up from the face.
PPD Rating: 4.5/5

Final Words: I would like to buy this cleanser again in winter as it cleanses my face efficiently. For people with dry skin, I am not sure whether this cleanser is for you or not as it is no where written on the tube.

VLCC Punarnava Astringent - Review

Hey, all!!!
We are back with another product review. As we told in our previous Winter care post, we must change our skincare routine for winters. I have also changed mine. So this review is about the toner which I gave a try this winter season. It is VLCC punarnava astringent which is easily available and affordable too. As said earlier, I have an oily and sensitive skin. Let us go in detail into the product review to know more.


Product Description: This unique astringent enriched with the natural goodness of Almond, Lemon, Honey and Aloe Vera extracts deeply cleanses, tones and refreshes the skin. It helps in tightening pores and also works as an antiseptic astringent thereby preventing the breakout of pimples in oily skin.
The method of use: After cleansing, apply VLCC Punarnava Astringent with moist cotton all over the face and neck.


For better results: Use this astringent every day after cleansing your face and follow up with VLCC Lavang Moisturizer.

Skin Type: Normal to Oily skin
Shelf Life: 3yrs
MRP: 140/- for 100ml (I bought it for 100/- on amazon.in)


My Personal experience with VLCC Punarnava Astringent:
This astringent comes in a small white bottle which is very travel-friendly. The cap is very tight and it doesn't leak a single drop of the product from inside. This liquid comes in green color.
My first impression after seeing this bottle was - Oh cute!!
When I opened the cap, for the fragrance I was like - Oh nooo!!!!
After my first usage, I felt - OMG!!!!!!
It burned a lot as soon as I kept the cotton ball with this astringent on my face. Immediately my face became red(which became normal after 4-5mins). But I just wanted to give it a try as we cannot decide about any product by using just once. I have used this astringent for about 1 month. It makes your facial skin feel fresh after applying. It effectively prevents the skin breakouts. I haven't seen any change in my pores size, about which this product claims.







Pros:

  • Easily Available
  • Affordable
  • Prevents skin breakouts effectively
  • Travel Friendly
  • Makes the skin feel fresh for few minutes
Cons :
  • The fragrance is very strong
  • Not at all suitable for sensitive skin
  • Burns the skin a lot
  • Makes you teary eyed if applied more or very near to the eye
PPD Rating: 2.5/5

Final Words:  I don't want to buy it again as I didn't like the product even though its cheap and easily available. It doesn't suit my oily and sensitive skin.

Artificial Snow DIY for Christmas and Frozen Theme parties

This easy and inexpensive project adds a little extra magic to your Christmas decorations and themed parties like Frozen theme birthday parties which  Children are more fond off. Especially girls, they love the frozen princess theme party ideas.


 I tried this for my son's first Christmas photo shoot and came out very well.and he loved playing with the same.Just grab some thread, a bag of cotton balls and a little glue. Now you're ready to go! 

Things needed:
  • Glue
  • White or transparent strings
  • Cotton balls
  • Needle
Google image

Easy as you say 1, 2, 3

Using your needle and white/transparent thread, string your cotton balls one by one. You can make them all the same length or vary them to give the collection a more natural look. I tried for uniform distances in between the balls
  
Google image

Keep them secure:

Leave space between the cotton balls for a "falling snow" illusion. To keep them in place, Two methods can be used 
  • Dab a bit of glue onto the thread before sliding the cotton ball into place.
  • Tie a small knot after you pierce each cotton ball into the string according to your spacing constraint

Google image

Cover Your Wall In A Sheet Of Mesmerizing Snow:

Use push pins to attach your cotton ball garland to the ceiling. Clear push pins work the best!
You can also use transparent tapes to stick them on to the walls or ceilings

Google image

 I added Decorating wraps as background wall decorations to make the photos more beautiful.


Simplicity Is Key

These dainty strands of garland look great when they're not overpowered by a ton of other decorations. Just remember to try to keep it simple! These can be used  for many ways or decorating as shown below

Snowy Window Display
It doesn't make a difference if you're a business owner or homeowner, these garlands look amazing when they're strung up by the window. The bright backlighting from inside will make them pop!

50-50 Duo Colored Chocolate No Bake Cookies

What could be better than the Chocolate cookies made from the ingredients you have in the house and that never needs to go into an oven? These cookies take just minutes of work. Most of the time is spent waiting for them to harden into rich, chocolaty delights that they are...
These  homemade cookies will just melt away in your mouth.
Be careful... They are addictive!!! ☺☺☺You might want to make an extra batch more.

Follow these super easy steps below to make some on your own!


COOKIE SUPPLIES & PREPARATION :·         

·  Milk Chocolate Morsels or Chips or chocolate pieces
·  White chocolate
·  Non-Stick Parchment paper sheets
·  Salt Biscuits
·  Milk biscuits
·  Nutella
·  Peanut butter
·  Chocolate Sprinkles
·  Large tray to freeze


Step One:  Use a large tray and spread a parchment paper on the top of it. Now place some salt biscuits and milk biscuits on the sheet.

Step Two:  Apply a layer of Nutella (Hazelnut spread) on the top of these biscuits and add one more layer of respective biscuits.


Step Three:  Now for the third layer add some chocolate chips and bake them for 5 minutes to melt the chips. If u don’t have an oven no worries just use Double Boiler method to melt chocolate and prepare a semi-liquid mixture and add it as a layer.


Step Four:  Add a layer of biscuit on the top it .You can add more layers by using Peanut butter but for this recipe, I added only two toppings.

Step Five:  Microwave or use Double boiler method for both white and Milk chocolate to make a semi-liquid chocolate mixture from both. Don’t forget to stir them in between so that the chocolate does not get over burnt.



Step Six:  Take each piece of layered biscuit and dip them into White chocolate on one side and place them on the tray. Now on the top of white half add some chocolate sprinkles. This tray will go into the fridge for 10-minutes.

Step Seven: Once they are out, dip the second half into Milk chocolate and place the tray in the fridge again. After 10 minutes tasty lip smacking 50-50 Duo colored chocolate cookies are ready to eat.



The one for which we used salt biscuits is going to be salty and crunchy from inside and sweet and creamy delicious from outside.
The one for which we used milk biscuits is going to be milky, sweet and crunchy from inside and sweet and creamy delicious from outside.



Store in an airtight container so that they will be fresh and crunchy.



They can be packed and given away like treats too.

Tips:

1.       Use a plastic microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate rather than glass bowl because plastic can retain up the heat for more time.
2.       Microwave the chocolate in intervals of 15 seconds to make sure that the chocolate does not get over burnt
