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.

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
