maybelline baby lips mango pie review

Product Description:

No more basic lip balm

Visibly renewed lips and 8-hr hydration
The secret: Exclusive lip renew formula with SPF 20
Protects and moisturizes lips for a full 8 hours
After 4 weeks, lips are visibly renewed and reborn
7 varieties

My Views:

I have extremely chapped lips all year.When i first used it my lips pained for sometime. I checked the ingredients. But i took my chance and continued using it. My lips are softer.

The lip balm is very creamy and glides like a butter on the lips. It does not feel heavy or waxy on the lips. It is extremely light .I have been using this lip balm for over a week now & it has pretty much taken care of dry chapped lips. It keeps my lips soft and supple for over 3-4 hours and then it needs a retouch. Since, it is working well on getting rid of flaky skin I prefer to use it in the night time. This lip balm contains SPF 20 which is another positive.

Lasts for at least 3hours
Light on the lips
Smooth lips
SPF 20
Quite economic

Lakmé eyeconic mascara review



I am a lakmé fan.
When Lakme came out with Eyeconic i had to try it.If there is something thats due from lakme over the years, its been a solid good mascara .

Encased in a sleek, curvy black tube is this slightly curved brush that promises to give you the curves you have always wanted ! it seperated and gave definition to my eyelashes . Although it required a lot of layering for much volume to show up. The brush is a bit long. Might be a pro to some or con.
Also it takes about 5mins to dry. And for me that is a con because i apply the mascara last and am usually in a hurry.

But its not all bad, the eyeconic mascara definitely makes my lashes look more prominent, more defined and blacker.

Another thing, it is not waterproof.removing it is quite easy. Good for regular use. Atleast it does what it claims to do – blacker and defined eyelasher.
pros the packaging
2. Long brush
3. Eyelashes look blacker and prominent

1. Isn’t waterproof
2.needs too much time to dry
3. Doesn’t add any extra curl to the eyelash

Would i buy it again? May be not

Before use


After use


Btw i have not used a curler.

Why being a man is easy?


Today i went out with my boyfriend for a drink. We were getting late and it took him just 10 mins to get ready. I went out without make up or eye shadow. And if you are the kind of girl who likes to look perfect before stepping out for the evening you know how irritating that would be!

The worst part – he looked perfect!

All throughout  the way i wondered how can they do it all so easily?!?

1. Short Hair : most of them just mess up their hair and it looks good on them

2.No bra : nothing to hold their bosom tightly

3.Outfit: all they do is pair up some random tee’s with denims. We cannot wear a casual outfit to a pub

4.NO MAKEUP: may be a hair gel and they are good to go

5. No periods: accept it,life would have been so much better

6.can walk around without a shirt, anytime , almost anywhere

7.No heels: always a flat shoe, dreams..

8.Facial hair: Doesn’t matter if they don’t shave

9.No mani-pedi: and they still don’t have dirty  nails

10.Penis: not that it makes them superior but hell, they can pee standing up!!!

Product review: Himalaya Neem Facewash



Soap-free herbal formulation that gently removes impurities and prevents pimples. Enriched with Neem, well known for its anti-bacterial property that kills problem-causing bacteria, and Turmeric, which effectively controls acne and pimples. Use regularly for clear, soft, and pimple-free skin.


Moisten face, apply a small quantity of Purifying Neem Face Wash and gently work up lather with a circular motion. Wash off and pat dry. Use twice daily. Followup with Himalaya Herbals Face Moisutrizing Lotion.

Use Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Pack once a week to rejuvenate and revitalize your facial skin.


Each gram contains: Ext Nimba 50 mg, Haridra 5 mg.

PRICE: Rs. 65 for 100 g.



This particular face wash with Neem and Turmeric is meant for all skin types, but especially so for oily skin because it claims to prevent pimples . it smells so light and scenty, it is not akin to usual ayurvedic products, . the thing with this face wash is that it does not lather too much . Also, there is this slippery kind of cast left behind that makes me wanna rinse my face again and again. Also notable is the fact that after pat drying, a slight yellowish tinge covers the face which catches light and gives the appearance of brightness to the face. The company must have added this color to show the “turmeric effect.” Those, who want their faces washes just to clean their face and do nothing else, would be averse to this yellow tinge. Personally, I liked it.


  • The lovely bright green color.
  • The mild but lovely fragrance.
  • I kind of like the yellow tinge that it imparts to my skin.
  • packaging is nice


  • I do not like the oily cast that it leaves behind. It takes many splashes of water to take that off.
  • The yellow tinge due to the turmeric might not work for some people.
  • Unsuitable for dry skin

I am not sure whether the face was able to draw out all impurities from the skin coz I was busy trying to get that slippery feeling off my face .


well, no I would not. I’d rather go for other products

Oily skin care routine.


Ironic how something as essential as oil can be harmful for the skin. I for a fact have faced waking up to a greasy face. And one common problem related to Oily skin is pimples. Believe it or not , I have been through my teenage days (I am 20 now ) without a single pimple and trust me I have a very oily skin. Just a few simple routines and you can be oil free too!

use tea tree products. I use products from the body shop

Cleansing:Cleansing clears the skin of the dirt and grease accumulation on the face. But you know the tricky part? Cleansing milk contain oil which is something you would want to avoid. Cleansing gels and foams however can be used but I personally would not use it as it contains detergent like substances. some products I would recommend are:


the body shop clean tree cleansing milk and kautervita

Toner: I am in love with toners. It prevents the pores from clogging and has a cool refreshing effect.


Moisturizers: We hate moisturizers. it makes the skin more oily. but thankfully now we have oil free moisturizers.




and finally

Face wash:


These are just some suggestions. Use these according to the routine i suggested in my earlier post. I will do product reviews soon. please follow for more. 🙂

next one will be for dry skin.


Regular Skin care for all skin types.

These are certain things i recommend everyone to do daily

Products required.
1. Cleansing milk
2. Toner
3. Moisturizer
4. Scrub
5. Face pack
Step by step skin care guide.
1. First thing in the morning, wash your face with five splashes of cold water followed by face wash.
2. Below is the chart of things to be done (in order) regularly two times a day.

MON      CTM          CTM

TUES      CTM          CTM

WED      CSTFM      CTM

THURS    CTM         CTM

FRI          CTM          CTM

SAT         CTM           CTM

SUN        CSTFM       CTM
C: cleansing; T: toning; M: moisturizing; S: scrubbing; F: face pack
3. It is best to do the above steps before bathing and then later in the day before going to sleep or a tad earlier (like in the evening after coming home).

4. Be gentle on your skin. Don’t rub anything (even cotton) too roughly. Pamper your skin
5. Drink plenty of water, get plenty of sleep and eat healthy! (Although eating any kind of food is okay for me until I work it out later and other factors are compensating for it.)
6. Keep your HAIR off your face as the oils in them can trigger pimples or whiteheads. Keep them tied behind or wear a headband.
7. Avoid coffee, soda/fizzy drinks, ALCOHOL and CIGARETTES as these tend to dry the skin up and are EXTREMELY bad for already dry skin and drying up even more can result in flaking or peeling of skin. you can try wine though. red wine.

Next time i will post skin care for the various types of skin individually. people with oily skin , next one will be for you. Plus i will suggest some  products.


Skin care for beginners.

The most important part of looking good is taking care of the skin. For this you need to identify the skin type. Just follow these simple steps

1. Wash your face with a mild face wash. This removes the dirt from the face


2. Let the face dry for an hour. Your skin will be back to the usual state by this time.

3.take a tissue and wipe it on the skin


4. Now determine the skin type
Normal: neither oily nor dry.. You are lucky
Oily: the tissue will have probably have large pores
Dry: skin shows dead cells and probably have small pores


So know your skin type and then you can start caring for your skin accordingly. I will be posting skin care for different skins,product suggestion and reviews.
