THE ONE WITH THE LONGEST LASTING FRAGRANCE IN A BODYWASH

The first thing most people do in the morning to really wake themselves up is to have a cup of coffee, right? Since I’m not a coffee person I’ve always been looking for something else to wake me up so I can start my day off well. Thanks to Fiama Scents I’ve found just that! It really uplifts my mood and makes me feel so refreshed in the mornings & that’s exactly why I love using it. There are two variants – Juniper Berries & Geranium and Mimosa & Neroli body washes. Both smell amazing! And did you know they’re made with touch activated fragrance encapsulation technology? That’s what got me really excited when I tried it for the first time.

 Also, like me if you don’t really use perfumes regularly but want to smell great for hours this shower gel is perfect because it lasts for around 8 hours after you shower! I can be out shopping, shooting or just be out and about running errands and I still feel so refreshed. Who wouldn’t love that! The awesome micro fragrance capsules are eco-friendly. You guys know how happy that makes me! Those micro fragrance capsules really help invigorate your senses for hours which is amazing! 

Just the other day I was absolutely caught up with work and then had to tell myself to take a 5 minute break to just clear my head. While I was doing that I got a whiff of a lovely scent and that’s when I realized it was Fiama Scents Mimosa and Neroli Body wash that was lingering even though I used it hours ago in the morning. It still smelt so lovely and instantly made me smile and relax. All thanks to that #TouchActivatedFragranceTechnology that gave me that burst of freshness for up to 8 hours! 

You can find both Fiama Scents across leading retail stores and e-commerce portals in India: SHOP NOW

If using Fiama scents is all I need to wake me up in the mornings & to really keep me feeling refreshed for hours, you have no excuse not to want to go get yourself some too! I’m sure you’re going to love them & you too can smell lovely for up to 8 hours! So, #DilKoDeLift & Happy Showering!

Celebrity PhotoFacial

Celebrity PhotoFacial has become the procedure of choice among top celebrities as well as the working population who cannot afford time away from work to recover from more intense procedures, or who want a better solution to sun-damaged aging or acne-scarred skin.

The Celebrity PhotoFacial uses a combination of treatments that leave the skin looking fresh & rejuvenated. 

Medifacials at Kosmoderma are tailored to tackle everyday damage and are very good for skin maintenance. Unlike spa facials we at Kosmoderma use medicated products that penetrate deeper into the skin for more effective & long lasting results. MediFacial includes Jet peel or Microdermabrasion. Jet peel helps with hydration & Microdermabrasion revives and replenishes the skin cells. A Glyco wash leaves the skin brighter & radiating.

PhotoFacial is a treatment that uses light-based technology. Celebrity PhotoFacial is an excellent way to create a smoother, healthier-looking complexion while stimulating ongoing collagen growth. Because laser penetrates deeper than any cream or lotion, it can provide a dramatic boost to the skin. PhotoFacials have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen.

Lymphatic drainage and relaxing massage helps to hydrate and tone up the skin, leaving it fresh. A finishing mask is applied with active brightening agents like Niacinamide, vitamin C,E and papaya extracts that help reduce everyday tan and damage.

Changes one can expect include:

  • Smaller pore size

  • Improvement in skin’s firmness and elasticity

  • Removal of tan & More even skin tone, eliminating brown spots, age/sun spots, acne scars and blotchy areas

  • Smoother overall texture

  • Removal of fine dark hair above lips, around sides of face 

  • A more refreshed appearance

Also, getting a good night’s rest and keeping your stress levels low will really help keep your skin hydrated & glowing this season!

Happy Holidays!

WHY WE LOVE NYKAA BEAUTY

NYKAA BEAUTY

Affordable & cruelty free make-up

Both Deepa & I  have been using Nykaa’s products for a while now and in all honesty, my current make-up routine includes a majority of Nykaa’s products. Yes, I’ve partnered with them and products have been sent across for us to review at times. But, unless the products are really good I wouldn’t have continued using them as much as do. If you asked me to give you 3 reasons why I love Nykaa Beauty it’s because their products are cruelty free, affordable and great quality for the price your paying.

Let’s be honest though, not every product a brand puts out is amazing. So, here’s a list of products I use regularly or just love.

A part of my everyday makeup routine:

Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation – ₹575

Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact – ₹525

Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation Stick Conceal Contour & Corrector –  ₹525

Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner (Super Black) – ₹299

Nykaa Get Cheeky! Blush Duo (Brazilian Bombshell) – ₹699

Other products I love:

Matte to Last Liquid Lipstick – ₹550

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel – ₹99

Nykaa Paintstix! Lipstick – ₹425

Nykaa MATTE-ilicious Crayon Lipstick – ₹625

It’s very rare to find a brand that has a wide range of products to choose from at their price points. I absolutely love the Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation and it’s been my got to since the time it was launched. This one will give you light to medium coverage and I use the shade 3 and maybe 4 when I get tanned. For your reference I used to use NC 40 or NC 42 at MaC. 

Off late I’ve been breaking out and have marks that I want to cover up so I’ve been using the Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation Stick Conceal Contour & Corrector in the shade 2 or 3 to conceal my marks and under my eyes. I then use the Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact to set my base. This has by far been the best compact I’ve used and I’ve hit pan so that goes to show you how much I love it. I have combination to oily skin and the Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation can be a little oily on my skin if I don’t set it with the compact.

If you’ve never tried some of Nykaa’s products we’d highly recommend them! But, always remember when it comes to makeup, products work differently on all of us.

HIMALAYA’S | YOUTH ETERNITY RANGE

HIMALAYA’S | YOUTH ETERNITY RANGE

Why it’s important to start using anti-ageing product for youthful glowing skin!

#PreserveYouthfulSkin

Everyone wants to maintain youthful looking skin right? There are multiple brands in the market with product ranges that claim to do that. But, if you’ve been following us on social media you know Himalaya is amongst the few brands we actually love and use not just because they make a great range of products but because they’re a cruelty free brand as well.

Earlier this month I attended an event where we were given so much insight by the Himalaya team & Dr.Chytra Anand from Kosmoderma about the importance of caring for your skin early on to prevent the early signs of ageing. From all the pollution around us at all times to the immense stress we put ourselves through our skin can get quite affected and start ageing prematurely. None of us want that! Did you know you should start taking preventive measures by using products like Himalaya’s Youth Eternity Range from your early 20’s itself? Most people are always under the impression that they have to use just their daily moisturizer to keep their skin looking youthful but that’s not the case at all. You need a specialized cream to tackle those early signs of ageing.

Himalaya’s Youth Eternity range are breakthrough anti-ageing formulations based on Plant Stem Cell Research and exotic Herbal Actives. The main ingredient being the Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells which are power packed with antioxidants. They also have Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, and Cipadessa which help in regulating youth genes and aid the anti-aging mechanism of your skin. The thing that I like most about all 3 products is that they are non greasy and absorb into the skin quickly enough. 

To start with, if you can stick to using their Day Cream, Night Cream and Eye cream, you’ll be doing your skin some good for sure. They suggest using this with your other products to really keep your skin as youthful as possible. Whether you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or 50’s if you haven’t incorporated any anti ageing products in your skin care routine it’s time you go get yourself the Himalaya’s Youth Eternity range
