Balance Me is relatively a new player in the skincare scene. It’s offering is natural ingredient based and I’m pleasantly surprised how effective it is. Since last Chritmas, I have picked up few things from them and these three are the stars.
Thankfully, the sudden heatwave here has ended. My skin changed completely last few months. From dehydrated to normal with bouts of greasiness midday (like that clogged and hot face feeling) but not quite. I could not stand any moisturising creams and here’s my skin-robe update..
Cleanser: Although my go-to cleanser still is Ultrabland from Lush, It felt bit too cloggy this summer. I opted for Ren Cleansing Gel, which was exactly what i needed. Overtime, it did feel like it was slightly too drying which is why I alternated with Ultrabland. The gel smells lovely with a rose-floral-fresh scent and gets every bit of grime and oil off. It is meant for all skin types but I’d stay away if I had any dry patches going on.
This has been going around as a miracle product of sort. No.3 is the at home version. No.1 and No.2 are to be used in salons during dying process. It connects sulphur hydrogen bonds permanently. Permanently is the word that got me saying no, no it doesn’t and I can prove it. (more…)
Genefique has been go to serum when my skin feels confused. It’s dry, oily, congested and dull at the same time. I have used this on and off for about 4 years and has never let me down. It seems to do a bit of everything. I will say reducing scars and even out tone is top of its list.
That cactus brush is lush. It’s a body brush that you can use to exfoliate while watching tv or youtube. Is what I do anyway. There’s something very satisfying to see a fine top layer fall into dust. Like polishing skin.
It is beautiful outside right now. Our house got a mini makeover with more fresh plants and flowers as well. I collected some things over the past few weeks. Since I have been carrying them along everywhere, thought I’d share. I’ll leave the odd bits of tissues and tampons out. Oh and Lancome Juicy tubes! I got my hands on one. (more…)
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Plus
This is a conditioning oil meant for dry hair and scalp. I don’t have particulary dry scalp but it tends to get tad scaly after every colouring session. I recently went a dark brown/almost black. My hair looks less shiny and the scalp is screaming for some moisture. I dug my finger in at the shop and just had to get it. The texture is a rich butter, melts as soon as you rub it and smells pretty darn incredible. The texture although thicker than coconut oil at room temperature spreads just like it.
