I found my Holy Grail Face Mask ft. Fernz Bee Venom Mask

Hello everyone,

It’s been a long long time since I wrote a post. Lots of reasons behind it which also involves a bit of me being a lazy prick! Anyway, keeping all those reasons aside, I want to talk about a product that’s been my absolute favourite from the past 6 or more months.

Last year, I was sent the newly launched FERNZ SKINCARE ‘Bee Venom Mask’ to try out. This was my first ever NZ made skincare product and I was looking forward to trying it out mainly because of the ingredients. The product contains the OG Manuka honey, Bee Venom ( Oh Yes! It’s the best for your skin), Shea butter and some of the best vitamins (Vit C, B3, B5, B6 ) that your skin craves for.

What the product claims:

The Fernz bee venom mask provides the dual action treatment of plumping up the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and helps in hydrating the skin to boost radiance. It’s got the best of New Zealand Manuka Honey and Bee venom that does the magic!!

Not suitable for those with bee allergy!!

Price:

The product is available for NZD 55.90 and is available on their website.

My experience:

I have a combination skin with most parts of my face being dry. After moving to New Zealand, I realised my face started getting flaky especially around my nose and mouth area. I believe it was due to the dry and cold air and the mask I was using was only making the skin more and more drier as it catered more to the Indian weather.

Ever since this baby came into my life, I noticed a big difference in my skin and I’m not saying this because it was sent to me by the brand. I mean it girls! The mask is nothing like what I’ve used in the past.

The mask has a creamy texture to it and when you have the first look, it would look more like a jar of moisturiser. A thin layer of the product has to be applied all over for about 20 minutes. After a few minutes of applying the mask, you’ll realise that the product is completely absorbed into your skin and that’s when you know that your skin is happy 🙂

After leaving it on for 20 minutes, I gently massage my face and then rinse it off . There’s this natural healthy flush to your skin and the skin looks fresh. The first time I thought it might be a placebo effect. So I went ahead and used it for 1 whole week (yes, you can use it every single day) to see if I’m just imagining things or if this thing really works. In fact my entire family tried this product when I was in India and they only had good things to say about the mask. It works equally well on men’s skin and this was proved when my dad (matured skin) and brother (teenage boy) tried out the mask for 3 weekends and they felt their skin looked less tired.

By now I was convinced that I’ve found my holy grail face mask and I would definitely be going back to a new jar once I run out of my current one!! I love that the ingredients are all natural and made in New Zealand (say yay to supporting local businesses) and that it suits all skin types of any gender. You get one jar for your entire family and they’re all sorted 🙂

Final thoughts:

This mask is definitely worth giving a try. The packaging says to be used everyday but I think using it once a week would do good too. The best time to use this mask is in the night as it has enough time to do its magic on your skin.

Definitely not very friendly on your pocket but if you love some good natural ingredients on your skin, this is definitely something that you need to have. The jar is good enough to last you for a long time and also looks pretty luxe in terms of packaging.

Ratings:

4.5/5 (Deducting 0.5 only for the price)

If you’ve tried this product or any other bee venom products, make sure to share your stories in the comments section below.

Till then stay awesome 🙂

 

 

 

 

Cover Grey Hair at Home| BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour Review

Hello everyone,

Those of you who know me personally and follow me on Snapchat must be knowing that I’ve been suffering from premature greying from quite some time now and ever since I moved to the new place, the change of weather and water has just made it even worse. I hated it when the grey hair used to peek out of my pony tail or when people pointed out to me that I have grey hair. I have tried colouring my hair in order to get rid of the greys, but it only made my hair rougher and drier and I think most of you who suffer from greying can get what I’m saying.

When BBlunt contacted me to try out their newly launched hair colour, I wasn’t too excited at first, thinking that this would be just like any other hair colour that can be used at home. But after reading why it was different from the the regular hair colouring kits, I knew I had to try this at least once.

My experience:

I have only coloured my hair twice in my life so far and it was always in a professional salon. Thus, colouring my hair at home was definitely something which I was nervous about and procrastinated for a long time before actually taking the plunge to do it all by myself without any help and decided to go for the safest shade which is the dark brown or the chocolate colour.

BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour Review- Before

First thing I noticed was that there was no brush that was given in the box which is definitely something that the brand should consider for future. The process of mixing the ingredients is all mentioned in the instruction leaflet which makes the entire process super easy. All you need to is mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and apply over your hair or in case you want to just cover your greys, they have a marking on the tubes to let you know how much to squeeze out.  But before anything, make sure to do a patch test in order to see if you are sensitive to the ingredients even if you have coloured your hair in the past.

Since, my hair was quite long when I coloured them, I used the entire tube and applied the colour and let it sit for 30 minutes. Before washing, the colour off, add some water to the hair and massage the scalp and emulsify the content and then you can wash it off with a colour protectant shampoo.

What I loved: 

Once the hair dried completely, I could notice the complete coverage it gave me. Apart from that the SHINE TONIC definitely did the magic. My hair is usually dry and frizzy and I could notice the softness and shine in my hair. It’s almost a month now, and I can see only a few strands go grey peeping out again, which I think is a pretty good time period, especially for an at-home colouring kit. Also, since it’s an ammonia-free colour, I think I’m definitely going to keep using it to cover greys.

I don’t see any drawbacks in this product, other than the fact that if you are someone who expects to colour your hair once in 6 months, this might not impress you much. Also, I think including a hair colouring brush would be really great to complete this kit.

Rating: 4/5

I would definitely recommend this product to those of you who are looking to colour your hair at home. Have you ever tried colouring your hair at home? Have you tried the BBlunt Salon Secret Hair colour? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

Treating eye bags with Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen Eye Mask

Hola,

Things are getting super busy in my life and with everyday, getting to blog is getting incredibly difficult.  But, when I get some of the sweetest Dms and messages on social media from some of you, it just encourages me to not give up so easily and thus I’m back with a new review post today 😀

Long working hours in front of laptops and computers and lack of sleep results in dark circles for most of us and considering the busy lifestyles we all have, most of us don’t have enough time or patience to apply creams and wait for months to see results. Few weeks back when CS&CO contacted me and asked if I would want to check their Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen eye masks. Well, why would I say NO to trying new products and especially when it’s from a brand that is sworn by Hollywood celebrities like Jessica Alba, who would not want to try it out.

Claims:

Essentially made of pure natural extract and collagen composition, the masks are an innovative transparent film increasing the one-way absorption rate to the eye area by more than 98% with moisture absorption 10 times the rate of a traditional eye mask. The nutrient laden ingredients combined with 24K Gold will permeate the skin and help to speed up cellular processes, activating regeneration which aids in restoring lost ageing skin’s volume.

The Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen Eye Mask promises to ELIMINATE dark circles and I was really curious to know if it lives up to what it claims. They have a very silicone kind of feel to them and consists of a serum in it. As soon as I put them under my eyes, it gave a very soothing and cooling feeling to the skin. The mask has to be put for at least 20 minutes and the best part is you can walk around and do some of your chores, but I would suggest you to relax while the mask is on to serve its purpose. I applied the leftover serum in the cover all over my face, because who wants to waste such precious things in life right! 😉

I kept the masks for 30 minutes and when I took them off, I could notice that they had become comparatively a bit thinner from when I’d put them on initially. This meant that the serum in the eye mask was well absorbed by the skin. I washed my face with plain water and did notice a considerable reduction in the dark pigmentation under the eyes. Since, the mask has a lot of good ingredients, especially hyaluronic acid, an ingredient present in most of the well-known Korean skin care products, that helps in reducing the fine lines under the eyes.

The brand advises you to 1 mask every day for 3 days, and then once a week for best results. But, I think if you are not going through serious under eye circles, using this eye mask once in 2 weeks is enough to help you deal with the dark circle problems.

If you can get your hands on these eye masks, definitely go for it because it does exactly what it claims for. I also have their Coconut Milk Hydrating face mask and I’m excited to try it out this weekend and give you all my opinion about it. For all the updates and mini reviews, make sure you are following me on all my social media channels.

PAC Cosmetics First Impressions| Mini Review|Best Affordable Makeup Brand

Hello ladies,

There are so many makeup brands coming up with new launches every other day but not every day would you find a brand that sells international grade makeup products at a pocket friendly price. PAC COSMETICS or Professional Artist Cosmetics, a German brand created by 3 Indians has a vision to provide quality products at the optimum price range possible throughout the world.

When PAC Cosmetics sent me some of their makeup products and tools I was ecstatic to try them all as I’ve previously used one of their makeup brushes which is compared with the much raved MAC brushes, but obviously at a much lower price. I’m still new to makeup and buying high-end makeup products is not something that I prefer now, hence PAC cosmetics was the best thing that happened to me. You want to know why? Read my review or first impressions about all the PAC products here…

  1. PAC Beauty Blender: You know how we all dream of owning the original Beauty Blender but still many of us can’t due to it’s ridiculously high price. Well, PAC Cosmetics will solve that problem for you all as this product is so affordable and works wonders for your BASE GAME. The packaging is so cute and adorable, that any girl would fall in love with it at the very first look. I have used many other beauty blender dupes, but none of them ever came so close to the real beauty blender. The PAC beauty blender expands quite large once it’s soaked in water and is damn soft on the skin. There’s no streakiness or patchiness when you blend your foundation or concealer with this sponge and makes the base look super flawless. You can buy this here.

  2. Mini Blender Sponges: First of all, can we just adore these cute little things. Oh my god! they are so so adorable but don’t you just get deceived by these cuties as they are bombs when they are worked on the nooks and corners of your face for blending your base. The packet consists of 4 different shaped mini sponges and each can be used for under eyes, nose etc. Buy this Here.

  3. Liquid Liner Pen: Honestly, I suck at winged liner but with this amazing product, my wing game has become a lot easier and I can spend less time with the struggle. The eyeliner stays for a minimum of 4-5 hours and does not budge easily. It can be compared with the colossal liner but I would still prefer this as the pen is long and precise. You can get yours here.

  4.  Highshine Liquid Liner: I wasn’t much impressed with this liner as compared to the Liner Pen. I found it a bit difficult to apply, but that’s maybe due to my lack of skills. Also the lasting power isn’t that great too. It starts peeling off and creases after a while especially if you have oily eye lids. Get yours here.

  5. Intense Auto Kohl & Longlasting Kohl Pencil: These two products are each 350 Rs worth and are so good! The intense auto kohl is super pigmented and lasts all day long without smudging. It is auto retractable and has a smudger at the other end to give you those sexy smokey eye looks. The Kohl pencil is a sharpenable pigmented black eye pencil with a smudging tip at the other end. The jet black pigmentation is perfect to line your waterline as well as tightline your upper waterline. Buy them from Here .

All the products I received are really impressing and I must admit, in the recent years, I haven’t come across any brand that has come up with such great quality makeup products and accessories. Apart from these products, tey also have a wide range of makeup brushes, lip post and what not and they are easily available on Amazon and Flipkart. I am definitely going to checkout these products soon and maybe post another review using the new products.
