Natural Bath & Body Magnificent Wild Orchid First Impressions

It was an amazing day today as it was today that I received my Bath & Body parcel from Nykaa.

The packaging was not exactly the same yet it was impressive.

Now coming to the contents of this lovely 💖 box.

It contains four items: a Face Wash, a Shower gel, a Body Mist and a Body Lotion.

Too much for this box and price, right?!

Now coming to the products individually.

First up we have a Face Wash. I was really excited for the face wash and it was the first thing I tried amongst all four products. Here is a look at it.

The face wash comes in a very convenient packaging. It is a foaming face wash and smells amazing. Feels really fresh after using it because of it’s fragrance.

Next up, we have a shower gel. The first thing I noticed about it was it’s color – it’s purple guys 💜. I love the consistency and smell. I am sure after using it in your shower you will feel the calmness of a real orchard.

The third awesomeness in this box is a body lotion – Body Latte as they call it. The packaging again is remarkable. It might not be travel friendly as it is a pump but it will sure look good amongst your bathroom goodies.

Lastly we have a body mist which again is so fresh and amazing. One thing I loved about these in first glance are the quantities. All products are good to last long.

I cannot comment on the effectiveness of these products as yet but I am really happy with the first impressions. Well, why shouldn’t I be? After all we are girls and we aspire to grab as many beauty products in the world as we can, right? 😝 And this package of goodness will surely make you feel a bit more content. That’s what I can promise. ☺

My room smells heavenly right now. And I am happy. ☺😀

My experience with this night cream has been great. I use it every night before going to bed. It has buttery consistency, feels really light on skin and gets completely absorbed as well.

It gives a cooling sensation to my skin and smells really nice. The combination helps me in having a good nights sleep. Having included this cream in my night time routine really helps me wind down and calm myself in the evening after a tiring, hectic day. And I get up in the morning with a natural glow and freshness.

I do recommend regular scrubbing so that it removes the dead layer of your skin allowing the night cream to work more effectively on your skin. Well.. am I stating the obvious here? :p

Here are some pros and cons.

Pros:

  • Light consistency, gets easily absorbed.
  • The cooling sensation and smell calms you and your skin.
  • Nourishes and awakens your skin.
  • Moderately priced for its results.

Cons: 

  • The packaging could have been better. It’s a bit unhygienic to poke your fingers again and again in the same jar.

Rating: Finally I would rate this product a solid 4 out of 5 and definitely buy it again.

Neutrogena lip moisturizer SPF 15 Review

When I finished my Maybelline New York BabyLips SPF20 Lipbalm, I was quite lazy for a while to buy a new one. I loved my Maybelline lip balm (the anti-oxidant berry one). I liked it for two reasons: I don’t want the strong fragrance that come with other lip balms and I always prefer my lip balm to come with an SPF.

So while I was on my lazy days ‘spree’ I did not realize that my lips were going really dry and black-ish. As soon as one of my friend made me realize this I went on to buy a new Maybelline lip balm for me.

The shop that I went to did not have any Maybelline lip balms so I looked for alternatives. There I saw this Neutrogena lip balm. It satisfied my two requirements and I bought it without even thinking twice.

When it comes to SPF products I think Neutrogena is one of the bests.

Product description: 

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer  softens, smoothes and protects dry, chapped lips with no waxy feeling. The moisture-enriched formula soothes and conditions your lips, keeping them healthy looking and soft in all weather.

  • Contains PABA-free SPF-15 sunblocks to guard against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use everyday for soft and smooth lips
  • Formulated only with the purest ingredients – no color, no fragrance and unnecessary additives.

Active Ingredients: 

7.5% Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, 4.0% Benzophenone-3

Buy it here.

It comes with a twist open tube and it glides really smoothly on your lips without giving a waxy finish.

I have been using this lip balm for about two months now and I really like it. It has lightened my lip color and made it really soft. Most of you might not like the fact that it is not tinted but in my opinion you should have at least one non tinted lip balm. So you can use it as a base for your gloss or lipsticks.

The quantity is pretty generous that would easily last for a couple of months. Also once I apply it I don’t have to reapply for another 3-4 hours unless I have meals in between. 😛

I also like to apply it at night and wake up with really smooth lips in the morning.

Pros: 

  • SPF 15 gives protection from the sun.
  • No waxy texture on application.
  • Travel friendly packaging.
  • Budget friendly.
  • Has long term benefits for chapped and dark lips.

Cons: 

  • No tint and fragrance can be a turn down for few. (for me its fine though as I like it to be free from color and fragrance)

Rating: 

Out of 5 I would give this product a 3.5

Overall it’s a good product. I would definitely buy it again. 🙂

7 Simple Ways to Live a Happy Life

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

Read on to learn 7 simple ways that you can start living a beautiful happy life. Please let me know if you agree on this and if you have some other points too. 🙂

  1. Believe in God:
    By God I mean the power within yourself.
    Did you fail an interview? Or, you think you are not doing well in life? – Believe in yourself and believe in the power of God. If you do so you are definitely going to succeed someday. May be that interview was not meant for you. May be what you are doing is not what you actually want to do. Just think about it and harness your inner energy in the direction that you really want to go. Success will be yours.
  2. God-is-a-Frequency-that-exists-within-YOUBe yourself:
    Whatever may be the situation, condition or occasion, don’t ever lose your true self. Even if people hate you or things go wrong…or whatever may happen!! At least you would know it’s not happening because you were trying to be someone who you are not. This would at least give you peace of mind. And given some time things would surely come on the right track. And once this happens, you would be even happier because you didn’t lose yourself in the process of making someone else happy.
  3. Be-YourselfRespect others: Even if you find someone “inferior” to you, never look down upon that person. Respect others if you want the same in return. Everyone is special in their own way.
  4. Img01Be the first one to Smile and say “Hello”: A happy, smiling face always charms others. And you would feel a positive vibe around yourself if you do so. Adding to this a small conversation is no harm, is it? This will make you feel a lot more connected and loved.
  5. sayHelloKnow your inner strength: It’s only you who knows the power of inner self. Not your parents, not your teachers, not your boss, not your friends or not your lover. It’s only YOU! You should know where your core strength lies and you have to carve yourself accordingly.
  6. inner-strengthinner-strength-21Forget and forgive: Learn to forgive others for whatever harm they do to you. Basically you should not suffer because of other persons deeds. And yes, it is not an occasional act, it is a permanent attitude.
  7. forgivenessisfreedomUprise or Downfall – Always be grateful to God: You have so many things to be thankful for – your family, friends, sense of sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste, speech and endless more. By writing down things you are grateful for – you start looking for more things to be grateful for. Learn to feel content and happy from inside.

Gratefulness
