Tried and Tested Tips to Avoid Chapped Lips

Dos, Don’ts and Special bonus tips to keep your lips soft and plump this winter.

Hello My Dear Beautiful Reader,

Winter is here. It’s too chilly here at Pune since a week. While I enjoy taking long cozy naps, my skin is screaming for more and more moisture day by day..!!

Skin covering lips is the thinnest layer of skin. Which makes it more prone to climatic changes and it requires more care. Today, I am going to share some tried and tested tricks and tips to take care of your lips so that you avoid cracked or chapped lips.

  • Firstly moisturization. Add a good moisturizing lip balm in your beauty routine. Apply, reapply whenever needed. I would recommend this lip balm
  • Use lip balm with SPF before you step out. This avoids sun damage while keeping your lips moisturized.
  • Scrubbing is a must. You can use some homemade scrubs or a good scrub from market to scrub away the dead skin cells from your lips. You can use scrub daily or 2-3 times a week. Scrubbing lips also promotes blood circulation and make lips look plump. I love these two scrubs the most – Forest Essential Lip Scrub and MAC Lip Scrub. If you are looking for DIY lip scrub recipes, here you go. 
  • Drink loads of water. Water not only flushes out toxins from body but also keeps skin hydrated from within.

  • Lip mask are best friends in winter. Just like sheet masks for face, we do get masks for lips. All you need to do is place them over your lips to add deep moisture. There are lot of brands which have introduced some good lip masks to the market. If you are someone who love home remedies over chemicals, check this post of mine for DIY Lip Mask
  • While lips are dry, we tend to lick our lips. Let’s admit that it does give temporary relief from the dry lips. But the saliva evaporates quickly and it leaves lips even more dry. That’s the reason we should avoid licking lips and instead use lip balm when you feel the dryness.  
  • Avoid matte finish lipsticks. As the formula is quite drying, they enhance the cracks on lips and can make them more dry. Instead go for moisturizing lip tints/ lip glosses to add tint, shine + moisture.
  • When I was a kid I had this weird habit of peeling off flaky skin from my lips. Ouch… Not only it hurts, it also does no good to lips. So please don’t be baby me and do not peel pick flaky skin. Instead use lip scrub as mentioned above.

 

Bonus Tips:

  • If you are too lazy to prepare a lip scrub/ get one, use toothbrush to scrub your lips. Yup it’s that simple. Wet the lips and use toothbrush to brush off the dry skin. Be gentle. Once done, don’t forget to apply lip balm..! You are welcome. 😉
  • If your lips are super dry and you haven’t found your ‘the lip balm’ (you know what I mean), then I have coupe of kitchen ingredients which I love. Honey and ghee. You can mix them or can use separately. Just apply a layer of it on your lips and let it work overnight. You will wake up with much much softer lips in the morning. 

Enjoy winter..!!!

Nivea Coloron Crayon : Review and Swatch

You might have seen the Nivea lip balm in the local drug stores. Might have tried them too. Recently in my rndom haul, I came across this new launch from Nivea that is coloron crayon. Being super enthusiast for lip products, needless to say, I did by this product. Let’s see more about this product.

They have three shades in this range:

Click on the images below, to buy the shade you like.

1 Pop red

2 Coral crush

3 Hot pink.

Only first two shades were available in the store I visited and I went with the shade Pop red.

What does company claims:

Ingredients:

Price:

299 INR post discount 249 INR for 3 gram or 3.3 ml

Shelf life:

29 months. Once opened, 12 months.

Packing:

The outer cartoon has this all the details about the product including the mode of use, ingredients etc.

The product comes in crayon packing. it’s beautiful red stick with the name of the company printed on it. The cap covering the product is transparent which makes it easier to recognise the colour of the product using. The bottom is the white twister you can twist it, in order to take out the product. The red and black color combo makes it look pretty.

The crayon packing is a good travel companion.

Shade:

It’s a pretty red shade, which is ideal for a day out or party.

 

Is it moisturizing:

Yes. It does keep your lips moisturized. My lips felt moisturized for about four hours, while I was in air conditioned environment. Mentioning this because you know air conditioning makes skin dry.

But I must say, if you have dry lips, it does highlight the cracks. Even though your lips feel moisturized, the cracks are still visible. Strange… 😪

Texture:

It has creamy texture. Has shimmery particles. But it doesn’t look tacky, but I’m not a fan of this kind of finishing either.

Does it transfer:

Yes it did.

How long did it last:

Company itself has mentioned on the product to reapply to keep lips moisturized and tinted, so can’t expect a long lasting formula.
The shimmery texting fades away pretty soon, with water and food. But it leaves the tint on your lips. This lasted for about three to four hours on my lips.

Once Applied

My take:

This is a pretty good for the amount we are paying. It moisturizes lips and gives good color payoff.

Even though I know some lipsticks which are good at keeping lips moisturized and cost you less, this product wins when it comes to moisturization. My lips didn’t feel the need for a lip balm.

But I didn’t like the fact that it highlighted the lines or cracks on lips.

Pros:

  • Availability.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Keeps lips moisturized.
  • Good color payoff.
  • Decent deal for the money paid.

Cons:

  • I’m not a fan of shimmery finish.
  • Highlights the cracks, if you have dry lips.

Review of The Lip Tint Which is On My Lips Today

Hey,

Who doesn’t like products which serves multiple purposes??? We all do right??? This was the very first reason I opted for this product which can be applied on lips as a lip color and as well as a blush on cheek.

Sounds cool??? Well, let me tell you one thing – most of the high brand lipsticks can be used as a blush or eyeshadow. But chances are that due to their thick consistency they might clog your facial pores and cause breakouts. Where as using the ones which are formulated to serve these purposes, is quite safer.

So one of my favorite cosmetics and skin care brands – The Body Shop has this multipurpose product – Lip and Cheek Stain.

Lets get to know every detail of this range and of course my take on it.

Brand :

The Body Shop

Price:

995 INR for 7.5 ml (Now offer price 895 INR)

Shades Available:

Shade I Own:

003 Red Pomegranate

What Does The Company Claims:

This dual-¬purpose liquid stain gives lips and cheeks a natural pop of buildable colour. Use under lip gloss for a show-¬stopping -pout and dab onto cheeks for a natural-looking rosy glow.

  • Liquid stain
  • For lips and cheeks
  • Natural effect
  • Buildable colour
  • Dermatologically tested

Packing:

It comes in a plastic bottle. It resembles a nail paint bottle. Plastic used is sturdy and lid is tight enough to carry this tiny bottle with you.

Applicator:

The applicator is dove feet shaped. Soft and helpful for a easy application.

Texture:

Liquid like consistency. But dries off quickly.

Shade:

Its a red shade. Color payoff is good on lips. Looks quite natural. This can be pulled off by the beginners too.

But color payoff would have been much better on cheeks. (Check the picture where I have rubbed off the tint just like we do for any blush.)

IMG_20180405_173500__01__01.jpg

Fragrance:

Very faint fragrance which hardly smell. So if you have sensitive nose, you can use this without any fear of strong smell.

Staying Power:

Honestly I am disappointed with it’s staying power on lips. It stays for max an hour and a half. Not more.

As a cheek stain, it’s work is nothing extraordinary. It is hardly visible on cheeks. Need multiple swipes to get it working.

Is it moisturizing???

Ummm I can say it did add a bit of moisture and didn’t dry my lips.

Does it Transfers??

Yes a bit. But that’s ok. Almost all lipsticks do.

What I liked about The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain:

  • Cruelty free product. No furry friend is used for testing the product. #happyMe
  • Travel friendly packing
  • Good quality applicator
  • Fragrance free formula
  • Doesn’t dry lips.
  • Didn’t break my skin when used as a cheek stain.

What I didn’t like about The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain:

  • Expensive
  • Color payoff could have been improved.
  • Staying power is very less.
  • Need multiple swipes if used as cheek stain.

Will I repurchase???

Umm I love The Body Shop products. But this one is a big no for me.

Will I Recommend???

I didn’t find it worth the money we are paying. Because from a lipstick the first thing we expect is the staying power. I am not happy with that. So may be a No.

This is What I Have to Say About Sunny Leone’s Liquid Lip Color

Helloo,

Sunny Leone – A woman who doesn’t really need an introduction. Half of the world, I mean half of the men in the world worship her beauty and women are either jealous of her beauty or appreciate her beauty and courage to start life all over again. Between, now she is not only a Bollywood film star, also a proud mommy of three kids…

Well, I am impressed by her for two reasons.

One – It takes hell lot of courage to come out of such industry and start a new life. That too in a country like India where everyone is good at nothing but judging people.

Two – Even after being one of those ad*lt star, she has preserved her innocence. I have seen couple of her reality shows on television. She is so cute and inspiring. The way she inspires people by her words is amazing.

Last year she started with her clothing line and perfume line. Recently started with her makeup line.

IMG_20180322_184638.jpg

It includes only my favorite cosmetics – Lip products. Yeahhhh…. !!! I was anyways impressed by her lip makeup in the reality show – Splitsvilla.

Lip products are – lip liner, Lipstick and lip gloss.

Being one of crazy lip product fan, bought lip gloss on Monday evening.  Just to wash away those nasty Monday blues. Received it on Wednesday. Quite impressed by the speed delivery.

Name :

Star Struck By Sunny Leone

Available Shades:

There are five shades of lip liner, lipsticks available. Below are the shades.

Shade I Bought:

Baby Doll

IMG_20180322_184622.jpg

Price:

799 INR

Ingredients:

IMG_20180322_184615.jpg

Packing:

The outer cartoon is of color combo – black and silver. Ingredients, price details are printed on it along with name.

The lip color comes in a typical plastic tube pack, with an dove feet applicator. The plastic used is sturdy and transparent. So you can identify the shade easily.

But I am not really impressed with the packing. The opening of the plastic tube is not tight enough(at least the one I have received.)

IMG_20180322_142407.jpg

Due to which it has become so messy…!!! This opening is typically for closing the cap tight and removing the extra product from the applicator wand. Look how messy it looks in the picture.

IMG_20180322_142457.jpg

Hence, I cant say it is travel friendly as there is leakage of product from the pack

Shelf Life:

3 years

Fragrance:

Smells like butterscotch candy. Fragrance is similar to that of Kylie glosses.

Texture:

It is soft. Glides easily.

IMG_20180322_143133.jpg
My ‘Pouting’ Skills Aren’t Up to the Mark…

Color:

It’s a peach shade. Can be carried by anyone without being conscious about the shade.

Color Payoff:

It is good not best. Single swipe is not enough for pigmented lips like mine. You need at least couple of layers to get that full coverage.

Is it Moisturizing?

Yes. It doesn’t dry my lips.

Does it Transfers?

Yes. It did transfer a bit.

Staying Power:

It stayed on lips for an hour approx.. Post that the glossiness was gone and a faded tint was left on my lips. Overall it stayed on my lips for 2.5 hours approx. (I had actually noted down the timings this time.) It’s very less I know. Because I have glosses and liquid colors from other brands which stayed on my lips more than 5-6 hours.

Pros:

  • Availability
  • Didn’t dry my lips.
  • Nice shade.
  • Sweet, mild fragrance.

Cons:

  • Not a travel friendly packing. (at least the one I received is not.)
  • Staying power is less.
  • Contains paraben.

Will I repurchase???

No. I didn’t find it worth the money.

Will I recommend???

No. I have plenty other from my list which I would love to recommend. But not this one.

Why Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in The Shade Icon is Perfect for You

You know how much I love lipsticks… I was dreaming of trying this one brand since sooo long… This brand is from Dubai… Since I don’t have any relatives or friends who live there… I was finding it difficult to buy one… Thought of buying one from Amazon… But got to know that they sell fake products…

Luckily, one of my favorite online shopping site, nykaa brought this amazing brand to India… Without any doubt, I ordered one for myself moment it was up for sale… #shopaholic

DSCN0181
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Yep I’m talking about Huda Beauty… Famous for their amazing products… As of now we can buy their liquid matte lipsticks, eyelashes and eyeshadow pallets online in India…

They have 23 variety of shades. From intense black to n*de.

Me being a girly Girl thought of trying this one shade out. Which I can use it on daily basis. Which I can carry even to office.

Let’s get to know more about this…

Brand:

Huda Beauty

Price:

1650 INR

DSCN0179
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Shades Available:

23 different shades available.

Shade I bought:

Icon

Packing:

Comes in a sturdy plastic, semi transparent tube.

The outer cartoon looks like this.

DSCN0185
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Lips design. Color of the lips is similar to the shade of the lipstick. It’s a sliding case.

Fragrance:

Smells like a butter candy.

Texture:

Creamy liquid texture.

Finishing:

Matte finish.

Color:

It’s a mixture of peach and brown. Light shade is perfect to be worked even on daily basis.

DSCN0184
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Color pay off:

I loved the pigmentation. I just applied it on my lower lips, that too one single layer. Then pressed both upper and lower lips to apply it evenly. But that was enough to get this full coverage.

Staying power:

I usually apply a single layer. It stays on my lips for 6 to 7 hours with intake of food and drinks. After which a very faint tint remains. Which is quite good.

DSCN0182
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Is it moisturizing:

Matte lipsticks are meant for dry finish. I have dry lips and I don’t usually try matte lipstick as it makes my lips even more dry.

But this one stands what it claims. It doesn’t dry your lips. I can’t say it adds extra moisture to lips but I can confidently say it doesn’t dry them.

Is it transfer proof:

It’s mentioned on the product that give at least 30 seconds for the product to settle down.

Which I did. But it does transfer a bit. It does not bleed as it dries of quickly, but does transfer a bit at least first few times. Which is OK for me.

What I liked about Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick:

  • Multiple shades to chose from.
  • Doesn’t dry lips.
  • Little goes long way.
  • Nice pigmentation.
  • Good staying power considering the little amount of product which I apply.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Price might be con for some. But if I had to buy from Dubai, including shipping costs and custom charges it might have costed more. Hence I’m listing this as good point. Plus little quantity is enough so this gonna last for good amount of time.

What I didn’t like about Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick:

  • I can’t think of any.

Will I re purchase:

Yes. I love the matte finish lipsticks but never happy with the ones I had tried before on my dry lips. I’m eager to try different shades from this range.

Will I recommend:

If you have been looking for matte lipstick for your dry lips, this one is definitely a must try.

Best Lipsticks for Beginners…!!!

Hey,

Now that you have been following my world – Mygirlypedia, you know how much I love lipsticks. My collection of lipsticks which I had revealed some time back is the proof for it.

Many of you been asking which is one brand of lipstick that I would suggest for a beginner, who is taking baby steps into the magical world of makeup. When I say beginner, I mean to say the one who wants to apply lipsticks but not sure whether she will be able to carry it or not. Thus she is not willing to spend more on a lipstick which she might not use in long run.

So, only best and a budget friendly brand I can come up with is, Elle 18.

I have multiple lipsticks from this brand. Mostly reds, pinks and peach. I am gonna swatch them for you in this post. Check out why I love this brand so much.

Brand:

Elle 18

Range:

Color Pops

DSCN0087
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Between there are multiple ranges available in this brand’s lipsticks. There are matte and other finishing. But I love this range more.

What Product Claims:

Dual core lipstick format.

Extra moisturizing with cocoa butter and jojoba oil.

Creamy smooth and soft texture.

Vibrant Shades.

Rich color pay off.

Intense look.

Attractive pop Colors.

 

Shades Available:

Shade I own:

DSCN0096
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Pretty Peach (Shade number 43):

This is a light peach colored lipstick. Definitely my favorite among all other Elle 18 lipsticks I own. It looks so natural on lips, looks super feminine.

If you are hesitant  to try out reds or pinks, this is definitely the one for you. You will feel comfortable enough to carry this on daily basis to work place or to colleges as well.

Pinken (Shade Number 31):

This shade is a mixture of pink and red. If you love red lipsticks but not so confident enough, go for this one.

Rosy Blush (Shade Number 27):

This is a cherry red shade. Always dream of or at least thought of trying out a red shade on your lips??? Try this. You just have to spend 100 INR to fulfill that thought of yours.

Price:

100 INR for 4.3 ml. I told you it is budget friendly..!!!

Shelf Life:

30 Months

Packing:

It comes in a small and cute black lipstick bullet, with the brand name written in Pink. A cartoon sketch of a gothic look(at least I find her gothic) gal is something which we can’t miss. Cute because they are not like other lipstick bullets which are lean or narrow. These are a kind of chubby. Look at them.

They are tiny and perfect to carry around in your purse or hand bags. Thus they can be a good travel companion.

DSCN0086
MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

You might be thinking they all look alike in terms of packing. How to differentiate the shade without opening them??? Well, there is a sticker at the bottom with the shade name and number written on it. Which makes easy to pick the particular shade.

Texture:

These cuties are buttery soft. Glides really well.

Finish:

A smooth and shiny finish.

Fragrance:

They smell like bubble gums. Yes they do. haha

Are these Moisturizing???

Yesss. If you can see there are two layers. Outer colored layer and inner colorless layer which seems to be the cocoa butter and jojoba oil. Umm inner layer was colourless when they were new. Now they look like that of their outer shade, for obvious reasons.

Are they transfer proof???

Umm. No. They do transfer. But it will be mean if we start expecting so much by paying so less. I mean no matter what lipstick you choose, there is still chance that do transfer. These tiny little things are not any exception. Hence not a con for me.

Staying Power:

The shiny finish slowly fades as and when you eat or drink food. The tint still remains for good amount of 5 to 6 hours. Not bad huun.

Why These are Good???

  • Budget Friendly.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Shiny finish.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Smells good. haha
  • Good staying power, at least for the price we are paying.

What could have been better???

Transfer proof. But as I said not a con for me.

Mygirlypedia Rating: 5/5

I have also made a quick video for it.

So girlies, I hope now you know which brand to start with if you want to build a lipstick empire like me. haha.

Do try out and let me know your take on this.

Hope you found this useful for your haul.

 

 

 

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in Shade Great Coral-ation Review

Hello,

Me and my never ending lipstick collection…!!!

I know… I know… I have told you that I won’t buy anymore lipstick or glosses…. But, it’s me…!!! I can’t stop myself from trying out different lipsticks and glosses…!!!

Hey, Plus I have a valid reason to shop. I am a Nykaa Prive member. Wanna know the advantages of being that??? Check out the story here.

Since glitters and sparkles are my current favorites, I have fall in love with glosses all over again. Adding to my lip gloss collection – here is the new bee to my box. A beautiful gloss from the brand – Wet n Wild.

Let us know whether I am going to recommend this to you or not.

Brand:

Wet n Wild

Gloss Name :

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss

Cruelty Free???

Yes. A happy bunny on a product makes me happy. None of our furry friends were hurt for making this product.

Price:

250 INR for 5.4 g

Shelf Life:

3 Years

Shades Available:

There are 6 girly shades available.

  • Sweet Glaze (Baby Pink)
  • My Cherry Amour (Blood Red)
  • Great Coral-ation (Peach)
  • Sinless (Lightest shade of Pink)
  • Crushed Grapes (Dark Pink)
  • Cherish (Light Orange)

The Shade I picked:

Great Coral-ation

Packing:

It comes in a plastic tube. The color combination is cute and girly. The cap is black, tube is peach and there is a white strip to separate these two colors. Honestly, it do reminds me of some school uniform color combo.

Plus points about the packing are – apart from being a travel friendly packing, it also helps in differentiating the shade. The tube color is been colored similar to that of the gloss inside it. Thus, if you purchase all the shades, you don’t have to pick the shade after checking the gloss inside it. You can differentiate just by looking at the lip-gloss tube.

Applicator:

Its a typical sponge applicator. Its soft and edgy. Makes application easier.

Fragrance:

It smells like a candy. But nothing like any fancy sweet candy.

Texture:

Its creamy. Gloss is neither sticky nor heavy.

Color Payoff:

Honestly, it doesn’t really looks like a peach gloss on my lips. Let me just remind you my lips are bit pigmented.

If you are looking for a proper peach lipgloss, na this is not the one for you.

But yes, if your expectations regarding color pay off is less, this will turn out to be a good lip gloss.

This adds a hint of peach color to your lips along with nice shine. It did look nice. The best part about the lip gloss I can say is it’s moisturizing quality. It did not dry out my lips. In fact it did hydrate them.

So, as company also says – I used this with some of my lipsticks which I don’t find hydrating. Just apply a layer of your favorite lipstick shade. Over it, apply this gloss. It looks amazing anddd keeps your lips moisturised.

Is It Transfer Proof???

No. In fact if it is any gloss, there is high chance that they do transfer.

Staying Power:

It stays on lips for 3 to 4 hours without food. But with food the glossiness disappears. A very mild tint remains on lips.

Pros of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Affordable.
  • Six variety of shades to chose from.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Adds nice shine to lips.
  • Good quality applicator.
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on lips.

Cons of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Not Transfer proof.
  • Color pay off is not that great. Which is con for pigmented lips.
  • Staying power could have been more.

Will I Repurchase???

Ummm No, not the same shade. I would like to try different shades in this range. Loved the idea of using it with lipsticks to create a moisturized, shiny look. Its a good deal for the price we are paying after all.

Will I Recommend???

If you have pigmented lips, looking for a gloss – skip it. If you are looking for moisturizing lip gloss and full coverage is not your concern, go for it.

Do You Have Aloe Vera Plant At home??? Read This to Get Most Out of It. If Not, I am Sure You Will Get One Post Reading.

Hey,

Who doesn’t like to look beautiful… that too without burning the pockets??? Huun???

Today’s magical beauty product doesn’t cost you much. All you need is to give the product a space to live and pour a mug of water to it everyday. Haha… Yes, the product I am talking about is natural and green. It’s the multi purpose plant – Aloe vera…!!!

Even though there are multiple brands out there, who have made packed aloe vera gel for us. But, I am sure they do have some kind of preservatives to preserve them from getting spoiled. Hence, planting a Aloe vera plant at your balcony is a great idea to get more benefits with no side effects.

It might not add that ‘beauty’ quotient to your balcony though. As leaves are prickly and bitter. I am sure you must have heard, bitterness is good for health. Umm I am talking about taste here…!!!

Without wasting much time lets jump into the list of benefits of this plant…

Wait a sec, you know how to use it right??? Just have to pluck a leaf, and slice it. The gel which you get is the magical product which we need to heal our beauty problems. The gel is made up of 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds. It also contains a type of protein with 18 types of amino acids, Vitamin A, B, C and E. Pheww… So much this little plant carries huun, I must say…!!!

Aloe-vera-animation-loop-forever

 

Ok, now lets jump to the list…!!!! #wink

Beautiful Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel:

Eyes:

  • Puffy eyes??? Aloe vera for the rescue. Apply a thin layer of freshly cut aloe vera gel  under eyes and leave for sometime. Bye bye puffy eyes…!!!

One important thing to take care:

Dear reader, even though aloe vera is a great herb, it might or might not work for you. If you apply the gel directly to your skin you might get itching or allergies. Because some people are allergic to this gel.

So, I would suggest to try a patch test before applying it to whole face directly. You can also dilute the gal by adding some quantity of water and then use it on skin.

Try out this home remedy to get most of the benefits with less or no cost.

You know what is the time consuming or most boring and challenging task of the day for a makeup enthusiast…??? 🤔

Na… Not applying makeup… We love it… It’s removing makeup. Because we know we can hit the bed with our makeup on. It breaks our skin. Hence makeup removal is must but it’s time consuming and borrring. Especially when it comes to removing your eye makeup after a hectic day at office or after a great party. When all you want is to go to sleep.

Well, I have found a quick solution for it. Wanna know how I end my day on a easy breezy note??? Check it out… My new found love…

It’s like water.

It is colorless as well as odor less.

Targeted skin type:

All types including sensitive skin.

My take :

The other day I saw this cleanser In one of my favorite shops, where I go for random shoppings. Thought of trying this cute little pinky pinky bottle. So picked it up.

Removal of Kajal and mascara is bit time consuming. Plus, it has to be neatly cleaned with gentle strokes. Because gal, eyelashes are precious. Right??

So, I took a cotton pad and applied cleanser to it. Dabbed the cotton pad on my eyes and swiped it gently with couple of strokes. Woo… Most of the kajal and mascara were on the cotton pad.

I can’t say it will remove whole makeup in one swipe. It takes minimum two to three swipes for a clearer skin around eyes.

It did clean my eye makeup and didn’t burn or dried the delicate skin around eyes.

Will I Repurchase???

Yes. I think it’s a good deal for the little amount we are paying. Little amount of cleanser goes long way. Thus this bottle is gonna last for minimum one month. Hence I’m gonna buy it again.

Will I recommend???

Yes. Especially those gals who feel like a panda at the end of the day. Lazy to remove makeup. Lazy to wash face. This one is for you. Keep this near your bed.
