REVIEW: Clinique Clarifying Lotion - 2 (Dry Combination)

Step 2 Of The 3 Step Skin Care System
Post By: Mrittika

Hello all you beauties, hope you are all glowing with happiness… This is my 1st post in ISLM, so a bit tensed as well as excited. Ok so before starting off with my post let me introduce myself, name Mrittika, by profession Advocate but a makeup addict from the city of Kolkata. So enough of me, lets start off with the review.

The brand Clinique speaks for itself and needs no introduction. This brand always had my fancy. I really wanted to try the world famous 3 – Step Skin Care System for long and ultimately got to try this magical product when I received it in my January Vellvette Box. I have a normal to combination skin type.
To be very frank, this is the only product that I loved in my Box last month. I was really happy to receive it and couldn’t resist myself from using it immediately. I’ve been using this for more than 20 days and till now I did not have any breakouts. I use this religiously once in the morning and at night. I simply love the product and am planning to buy the full size before I run out of this one. Though I don’t have big or open pores, still I could see the immediate effect on the skin after application which makes the skin smooth and toned. I do see a subtle glow in my skin after each usage and my moisturizer glides on smoothly. I simply love this whole process of CTM and how my skin feels.

What Clinique Claims:
The Clinique Clarifying Lotion – 2 is tailor made for your dry to combination skin. It helps clear away pollution dulling flakes for smooth glowing skin. Discover pores that have never looked smaller. Use it through winters to allow your skin to accept the subsequent hydration better. This is a powerful product that grows more resistant to impurities and helps your skin stay healthier and younger. Like all Clinique products, it is dermatologist – reformulated to be comfortable and non-drying.

Price: Rs. 1400/- for 200 ml.

Oooohhhsss And Aaaahhhsss:
1.     Makes my skin smooth
2.     Does impart a subtle glow
3.     Removes residue dirt even after cleansing
4.     Removes dead cells
5.     Twice a day usage detoxifies the skin and helps bacteria in check.
6.     Makes the skin looks toned a fresh.
7.     Fulfills all the claims.

1.     One and the only one…price.

A big big YES.
A must try. I feel every skin type will find their suitable match and will love it.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
