3 Skin Care Products That You Are Probably Not Using But You Should!


 3 Must Use Skin Care Products

The most important aspect of good makeup is a flawless base. And for a flawless base that looks both naturally radiant and beautiful is good skin. I don't have to harp on the advantages of having good skin, I mean its a no-brainer right? We all want, dream of and crave for flawless skin and are ready to go to almost any length to make it a reality...

From the most expensive face creams to the most raved about potions to the most popular skin elixirs to gharelu nuskes that have the backing of previous generations, we have tried them all...
But is it possible that we may be still skipping some product, a tiny something albeit important?
My today's post is about the 3 skincare products that contribute volumes to one's skincare but we generally tend to skip using. 

1. Eye Cream

Avoiding or skipping the use of eye creams is probably one of the most rampant mistakes that we tend to make. The skin around our eyes is thinner and more delicate than the skin of other parts of our face. You knew that right? But what you didn't know is that the skin under the eyes also have fewer oil and water glands that makes it prone to drying out more... And dry skin is a huge contributor towards wrinkles and well around the eyes, crow's feet.

The area around the eyes hence need richer creams and using products designed specifically for the skin around the eyes are ideal.

2. Makeup Remover

Now this should be a no-brainer but I know I have skipped makeup removers almost all my life. Its just very recently that I have started using makeup removers specifically and I do see a difference. Out of sheer laziness or the way I like to put it "time crunch", I would use my face wash to remove my makeup and all that that the face wash couldn't remove I'd use my face scrub to "scrub away" my makeup.
Trying to remove waterproof and smudge proef makeup using facewash and face scrub makes your skin go through torture everyday and that could and most definitely take a toll on your skin texture and the overall health of your skin.
Use a makeup remover...

When I say makeup remover, I don't necessarily mean using a cosmetic makeup remover, you could also use something like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and even Baby Oil for removing makeup. They work wonders and are not harsh on your skin.

3.Body Oil/Lotion/Butter

Like Eye Creams, our body too needs extra moisturization and nourishment... We generally tend to apply some lotion or body butter on the parts that are generally visible like our hands and arms and if we are wearing a dress or skirt then our legs. However, regular moisturization of our whole body is important too and I mean the WHOLE body replete with stomach, back, chest etc. This not only makes us feel and smell amazing the whole day, it also prevents or at least reduces the chance of getting stretch marks and other issues caused due to dryness.

I hope the post of mine is helpful to you all and does not sound very "preachy". Do let me know if I may have missed out on something important :)
Have a happy week ahead guys! ♥


  1. Agreed...we usually skip one or the other of of these, in fact in my case i usually skip them out of laziness.

  2. I have recently stopped using eye cream coz the serum I'm using is working wonders on my eye area. But yes, I agree, most people tend to neglect it.

  3. You said it right! I use eye cream every night, baby oil or coconut oil as a makeup remover but I feel lazy putting on a body lotion and I'm guilty for it!

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…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
