It doesn’t really matter whether you are a beauty and skin care freak or not; I am sure if you live in the world of Instagram, you have seen these sheet masks while scrolling down the infinite Instagram feed. Haven’t you???

You might know the basic about these sheet masks, let me share some of the tips and tricks to follow while using one. I am sure you will find it useful for your next pampering session with the sheet masks.

What is a sheet mask?

It’s a serum infused paper mask.

 

Why sheet mask???

Primary purpose of using a sheet mask is to add hydration to your skin.

 

Sheet mask or a moisturiser???

A good moisturiser adds moisture to your skin (which you all know). But sheet mask on the other hand has serum in it. Which in comparison with moisturiser, easily gets absorbed by skin. Thus, adding maximum moisture your skin needs.

 

Packing of sheet mask

Sheet mask comes in a pouch packing. A sheet mask which is dipped in serum.

 

Sheet masks before CTM or after CTM?

Ideally, it’s the M in the CTM where you moisturise. So, it’s always preferred to cleanse your face thoroughly and then use sheet mask. I personally skip toner.

Never use the sheet mask while the makeup is on or there is dirt on your face. Because adding moisture on makeup or dirt is going to clog pores which will end up in breakouts.

 

How to use a sheet mask?

Unfold the sheet mask and place it on your face. It ha these gaps for your eyes, mouth and nostrils.

 

For how long should I keep the sheet mask on?

Sheet mask should not be used more than 15 minutes. Reason being, 15 minutes is good enough for your skin to absorb the serum. If the sheet mask left more than that, the drying/ dried sheet masks can start absorbing moisture from your skin. So, doing no good to your skin.

How to make use of the excess serum in the pouch?

I love layering the serum on my face once I am done using the sheet mask. I also apply serum on my hands and feet sometimes. Ultimately, it’s a serum which adds moisture. Our hands and feet also need moisture, right?

 

Should I wash my face after using a sheet mask?

A big no. Because if you do so, it’s absolutely a waste of time and of course the money spent on masking. The serum which is absorbed by the skin should be left to see it’s magic. If we wash face, the serum will be gone, skin won’tbe benefited much.

 

Should I use moisturiser post sheet masking?

Umm it depends on your skin type. If you really feel the necessity for more moisture, you can. But usually serum in the sheet mask is quite heavy and most of us might not feel the need for moisture.

 

Should I use the sheet mask daily?

Even if you have dry skin, I don’t really suggest you use sheet mask every day. Because sheet mask is a huge source of moisture. Everything should be in moderation. So, I don’t personally prefer to add so much moisture every day to my skin.

 

How frequently should I use sheet mask?

If you have dry skin, 3 times a week should be good enough. If you have normal to oily skin, twice should be ok.

 

How long the results going to last?

Honestly, a day or max two.

 

Special Tip:

If you have oily, choose the sheet mask wisely. As your skin is already oily, you don’t need more moisture. Sheet masks like shea butter, avocado is something which you better avoid.

If your skin is prone to acne, sheet masks which is meant for skin type like green tea should be helpful. They add moisture also takes care of skin.

 

If you want to make your own sheet mask, check this out. Where I have mentioned how to make one at home.

 

I hope you find the post useful. Have any more query or tip??? Feel free to comment below.

 

How Do I Use Nivea Creme In Different Ways

Hello beautiful,

Let’s talk about a very basic skin care product today. Which can be used in different ways. Umm it’s kind of a budget friendly post, where you spend money on a cheaper product and use it for different purposes.

As the heading of the post says, I am talking about this cute little blue tin of Nivea, which I am sure you are familiar with. Pretty more chances that most of you had or have bought this tin somewhere during your local drug store haul. Haven’t you??? If I heard a No, well, you will buy once you finish reading this.

Let me share some of the ways I make use of this little box of magic.

  • Moisturizing:

The prime factor of Nivea is the super moisture it provides. I personally prefer to apply this heavy cream on my elbows and knees. This provides heavy moisture that my elbows and knees need.

  • Under eye cream:

If you have dark under eye area or puffy eyes, all you need is that extra moisture to pamper it. As you might already know, skin covering the under eye area is very delicate. It requires more hydration. Instead of spending more amount on an eye cream, spend only INR 39 to take care of under eye area. 😃 Sounds super budget friendly right… ? 😉

Applying a thin layer of Nivea before hitting the bed at night, should be helpful.

PS : I sometimes use it during the day as well. On under eye area, before applying any makeup.

  • As a lip mask:

Sitting in air conditioned environment??? Huuh… no matter how the weather is outside, our skin and especially lips get dry. I have a quick tried tested tip for dry lips and skin around mouth.

Apply a layer of Nivea on lips and around mouth. Let it absorb for around ten minutes. Take a wet cloth or wet wipe, wipe the cream. This will make sure the lips are hydrated and skin becomes soft.

I don’t prefer using it as a lip balm because it is too heavy and makes lips look visibly white (you know what I mean.)

  • As a foot cream:

Skin covering our feet is thick and needs heavy moisture. Apply Nivea to your feet and cracked heels. Cover it with socks and enjoy your beauty sleep. Wake up with much softer and happier feet.

  • Shaving Cream:

Applying Nivea before using razor will avoid cuts and also leaves skin smooth post hair removal.

  • As a Hand Cream:

I carry this tiny Nivea tin with me while I travel or I’m out. This will easily fit in small clutch or even inside jeans pocket. I have dry hands and that annoys me a bit sometimes. A quick layer of Nivea is what is enough for me to make my hands baby soft.

Special Note:

As much as I love using Nivea in above mentioned ways, I personally don’t prefer using it on my facial skin. It’s heavy and might clog pores which results in breakouts.

Hope you find it useful to replace some of the expensive skin care products with a super budget friendly Nivea tin.

PS : This is NOT a sponsored post and tips written are out of my own ‘tried and tested’ list.

Three Letter Mantra to Follow for A Beautiful Skin

Hellooo,

I have been writing a lot about makeup products in detail. I realised something which I was missing, when one of my friends asked me so innocently,” Pallavi, what is CTM??? Could you please write a post about it???”

So here is the post about the basement of skin care – CTM. Its an abbreviation. Each letter represents different basic products we need to keep the skin in good condition. Ummm you must have heard about these products… Any guesses???

C – Cleanser

T – Toner

M – Moisturizer

Let me explain more..

Cleanser-

8042146_f520

As the name suggests, cleansing or cleaning. Cleaning skin from external dirt. There are different ways to cleanse your skin. I will write about it tomorrow.

Umm if you have a doubt about washing face is considered as cleansing??? I would say to a certain extent yes. But not every facial foam/wash can cleanse your skin pores completely. Not every face wash can remove your makeup. Agree???

Easiest way to cleanse your face is using a good cleanser. There are multiple cleansers available in market. I have been using a cleanser from the brand Garnier. I have already bought my second bottle already. You can check this post to know why I recommend this to you.

How to use:

Check the video here where I have demonstrated how to use toner.

Toner:

01

Toner is oil based liquid. It is used for ultra purification of facial pores.

No matter how good the cleanser might be there are chances that traces of makeup or impurity still persist inside pores. This will lead to pore clogging that in turn leads to pimples. Toner helps in removing that dirt from pores and leave them ready for absorption of moisture or serum which we will be doing in the next step.

Toner also provides soothing effect to skin and said to lighten the redness or blemishes if any. Point I want to mention here is, there are some toners in market which I had tried earlier gives tingling effect too…!!! May be that’s how they work. Personal suggestion, do not opt for alcohol based toner. As it might irritate your eyes. Because I had made that mistake I don’t want you, my dear reader, to do.

There are multiple brands with so many options for a toner. If you are thinking of which one to buy, I have a suggestion for you. Which suits every skin type and a budget friendly one or I would say it costs nothing. Rose water. Yes that’s the best toner you can find.
Check this out to know more about how to prepare rose water at home.

How to use:

Drop few drops of toner on cotton balls/pads. Apply it on face. No need to rub. Be gentle and pat it on face.

Moisturizer:

applying-moisturizer

As you all know what this is for.

Yes you are right, to add that extra moisture or hydration to your skin. Adding moisture to skin helps in improving texture and tone of skin.

Thing we need to take care is that one single moisturizer may not meet different skin needs. Every different skin type needs different moisturizer for a good care.

Dry skin – Badly needs more hydration. Oil based moisturiser is best for this type of skin.

Oily skin – We can not apply oil based moisturiser to already oil producing skin. Can we??? This will worsen the situation. Hence, light weight or water based moisturizer is ideal.

Normal/Combination skin – This type is a lucky one as they choose either (water/oil based) of the moisturisers as per their current need.

How to use:

Using fingers apply gently on face leaving eyes and lips area(I know it’s obvious but no harm in mentioning. hehe)

Now, the biggest question –

what’s the order to carry out these steps…

It’s in the word – CTM itself dearie…!!!

Cleanser then toner, followed by moisturizer.

Clean your face. Clean more. Add moisture.

See, this is that easy…!!!

If you have any more questions regarding CTM, please feel free to contact Mygirlypedia…!!!

Happy to help you…!!!

Happy CTMing…!!! haha… Muuuaahhh…

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…!!!

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…!!!
  • Most of us get cuts and red patches post getting our eyebrows threaded. Applying aloe vera gel on it will give you cooling and soothing effect.

Lips:

  • There are so many lip products in the market which has vitamin E as their main ingredient. Do you know this little plant is loaded with vitamin E??? Thus applying aloe vera gel on lips has proven to heal chapped lips, making it soft and pink.

Nails:

  • Brittle nails??? Have a habit of applying aloe vera gel on nails and massaging them gently. This will add moisture and boost the growth of stronger nails.

Skin:

  • As I said above, vitamin E is moisturizing content. Thus aloe vera is one of the best natural moisturisers you can find at your home.
  • Aloe vera gel is proven to provide cooling effect to skin. Applying it on burns should be helpful.
  • Oily skinned beauties – fed up with access oil production by your skin cells???? applying aloe vera gel on face has proven to reduce the oil production. Thus giving you a matte finished skin.
  • Acts a great moisturizing makeup remover.
  • Good to prevent aging signs like wrinkles and sagging skin.
  • It is also used to heal sun burns too.
  • Insect bites??? All you need to run to balcony, pluck aloe vera leaf and apply the gel.

Body:

  • Dry skinned beauties this one is for you. Mix aloe vera gel and sugar. Use it as scrub. Sugar granules will scrub off dry skin and aloe vera gel will add moisture to skin.
  • For pains and strains of joints, apply cold aloe vera gel. It gets absorbed into the skin and thus helps in soothing pain and strain.

Health:

  • This is also used in many ayurvedic recipes. Aloe vera juice when consumed, heals stomach disorders and allergies.
  • It also helps in curing diseases like piles, ulcers and jaundice, when consumed.
  • Plus, aloe vera juice consumption aids weight loss…!!!!
  • Also helps in improving digestion, regulates blood pressure, manages diabetes and  prevents heart attacks.

Aloe-Vera-Uses

Hair:

  • Applying aloe vera gel on to scalp for couple of hours before washing hair has proven to reduce hair fall and boost hair growth.

Oral Care:

  • Teeth and gum problems like – bleeding teeth or gums, inflammation, tooth ache and decay can be cured with aloe vera.

Aloe-Vera-Gel-Uses

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.

 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm Reviewed

If you have checked my post about the latest lip scrub, you know how bad the condition of my lips were last week.

Like most of the girls, chocolates are my first love too…!!! When I am having bad day, I make sure I end it on a good, umm rather a sweet note by indulging in some yummy chocolates…!!!

When I love chocolates so much, I obviously try to find beauty product which do have essence of coca or chocolates in it.

DSCN0412

Palmer’s coca butter formula has been one of my favorites, as their products have this amazing fragrance of cocoa and they are super moisturizing. So with that past experience with some of the products I have used from the range, I bought their lip balm. Read on to know whether you should try it out or not.

Brand :

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula
 

Flavor:

There are 3 flavors available. All are with SPF 15.

I picked up the first one. Since that is a tinted one.

Price :

130 INR for 4 g/0.15 oz

Ingredients:

DSCN0414

What Product Claims:

  • Ultra Moisturizing
  • Helps Prevent And Protect Chapped, Cracked Or Windburned Lips
  • Smooth Application

Packing:

Firstly, tube packing thumbs up. Hygienic as compared to tub packing.

Unlike most of the lip balms, this isn’t a normal bullet packing. This is a oval shaped bullet. At first you might feel it uncomfortable to apply as we are used to normal round shaped bullet packed lip balms. But once you get used to, this is in fact the easier way of application.

DSCN0415

The bullet is white in color. The tiny sturdy plastic pack makes it a comfy travel buddy.

Tint:

This flavor is a maroon tinted lip balm. It does adds a faint maroon color to your lips when applied.

Fragrance:

This is the best part. It has a mild fragrance of chocolate. Even though the name says its dark chocolate and cherry, the lip balm smells more like a rich milky chocolates. The fragrance is heavenly.

PS: The fragrance is not over empowering. You can smell it while applying but it fades fast. So, if you are sensitive for the smell, you don’t have to worry.  If you are a chocolate lover like me, you are gonna enjoy the fragrance.

DSCN0417

Texture:

It is super creamy. I have used many other lip balms but this one glides like a dream.

It is moisturizing???

Yes totally.

Does this heals chapped lips???

As you know, I had a very chapped and dry lips last week. This lip balm also played a good role in healing it. I would say yes it does helps in healing dry lips.

It has vitamin E in it. Which is used for healing of damaged tissues. I think it does spells its magic on chapped lips to heal them quickly.

Is it ideal for day time use???

Yes. Since it has SPF 15 in it, this makes ideal for day time use.

Will I repurchase???

Yes. It does what it claims and plus the price is much cheaper than many of the lip balms in the market.

Will I recommend???

Yes to all the girls who are suffering with dry lips this winter + the girls who love chocolates.

I am gonna stop lipstick shopping for a while now…!!! 

I will review my special lipstick someday soon…!!! But today let me review a gloss which I bought last week.

L’Oreal Paris has introduced some beautiful glosses recently. There are total 11 shades available in this range. You can check out the shades here. I usually prefer some light shades like peach, pink or light red. I opted for this cute shade. Let’s see whether this cutie looked cute on my lips too.

Infallible Mega Gloss xtreme Resist

Price:

INR 850 for 8 ml

Like what??? Doesn’t it resembles a snake??? I really didn’t get the concept behind this type of applicator. If you do plz leave a comment below. I want to know. #gosh

Texture:

Its a bit heavy for a gloss.

Finish:

Its a glossy finish.

Fragrance:

Strong smell of candies. But It’s really strong…!!!

DSCN0301

Color Pay off:

Color pay off is poor on my pigmented lips. It did look attractive but on my lips, it was just a thin film of gloss.

What I liked:

  • It didn’t dry my lips.
  • Availability
  • Travel Friendly packing

What I didn’t like:

  • Pricey or I can say this shade at least is not worth the price.
  • Color payoff is very poor. Definitely not for pigmented lips.
  • Feels heavy on lips.
  • Strong fragrance might irritate you.
  • Applicator Dahh…!!!
  • Ingredients list not mentioned.

Will I repurchase???

Never. At least not this shade again..!!! Since I have already spent money on this, I am gonna apply this on my lipstick to get the glossy finish.

Will I recommend???

Definitely not for the ladies with pigmented lips. Gals with naturally red/pink lips can use this to enhance your beauty, as it doesn’t dry lips.

My Online Shopping Experience at Ornate Jewels

Hey beautiful,

It’s my birthday today… While all my near and dear ones are making me happy in all special ways… How can the one I love the most, the one who is always ( 24 x 7) available for me can stay back… Ummm just to avoid the confusion,let me clarify… I’m talking about myself… More about that here…

So last week I was looking for a special birthday gift for the special me… I knew what I wanted to gift myself… A diamond ring… I love silver and platinum more than gold… For this birthday, I chose to go with silver ring…

DSCN0094

As I couldn’t manage time to go to shop and buy it, I opted for online shopping. Now the points to worry was about reliability, finishing of ring, quality etc. Since I had shopped before at Ornate Jewelries, I visited their online site.

After browsing through their amazing designs, this ring stole my heart completely. So I added this to my cart.

You can find the details of the ring here.

The next issue was the date of delivery. I had planned to travel out of station on Thursday evening and I wanted to receive the ring before the special day. Since I was in dilemma, I didn’t buy that.

DSCN0100

After some time, I received a call from the owner of the Ornate Jewelry Shelly, for assistance. I had met her during my last haul so it was quite easier for her to recognize me through my blog mygirlypedia.

So I told her my concern about the delivery date and time. She being such a sweetheart, promised to get it delivered before Sunday. So I took a chance and placed the order for the ring online.

But little did I know, she had done her homework to find the person who could deliver the ring within a day. She was concerned about my birthday. As she knew that this ring is a present from me to myself on my birthday and it means a lot to me. Just to save me from disappointment, she gave her 100% to find a guy who delivered the ring within next 2 to 3 hours….!!!!!

I mean, we rarely come across someone who handles the business deals in such a gentle way. Just to make sure the customer is happy. Trust me not everyone does that.

I was on cloud nine when I received my ring. A neatly packed products. With bubble wraps.

I also received a card. This card surely brought a smile on my face.

Andddd cherry on the top were these cuties. Which Shelly sent me as a gift on my birthday…!!! Aren’t they cute.???

DSCN0106

They are perfect for a gal who is obsessed with lipsticks, like me.

I’m touched by the gesture. The efforts she took to make my birthday a special one. Thank you… !!!

Apart from the amazing collection of finger rings, ear rings, bracelets and pendents, they have amazing customer service. Which is most important when it comes to online shopping.

I will totally recommend Ornate Jewelry Online shop for you if you are a silver jewelry fan like me.

You can check their website here – https://www.ornatejewels.com

Thank you once again Ornate for being such a good dealer.

Love,

The Shopaholic Birthday Gal 👰😘💖

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Balm : Review

Hey,

You know what sort of lipsticks I like. I have mentioned in each and every lip product post of mine… Moisturizing one. Whenever I read the word moisturizing lipstick, I tend to get so restless unless and until I buy it. #confessionofashopaholic

So recently I saw these beautiful shades of lipsticks from the brand L’Oreal Paris. What caught my eyes was the word ‘Balm’. I love all sort of lipsticks balms. How can that shopaholic in me can sit quite without buying them. So I ended up buying it or ‘them’. Yes I bought 2 of them.

Read on whether they were worth buying or not.

Brand : L’Oreal Paris

Name : L’Oreal Paris Infallible Se*y Balm

Price : 475 INR for 3.39 grams

Number of Shades Available :

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm at Nykaa1

10 (n*de to dark red shades. Quite a lot to choose from huun)

What Product Claims:

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm at Nykaa

Shade 1: Can’t Sit With Us (Shade Number 110)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dark red shade.

Shade 2 : Such A Babe (Shade Number 109)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This shade is mixture of red and orange.

Packing:

This lip product comes in crayon kind of pack. You can twist it to get more product. The plastic cap is sturdy thus making it a travel friendly one. But the name written on it is a bit of less quality. As you can see in pictures it has almost vanished.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The shade name and number has been printed on bottom of the product.

Shelf life : 29 months

Fragrance :

It has mint kind of fragrance which might be over empowering for those with sensitive nose.

Texture :

Both are sheer finish ones. As the company claims, it is non sticky. It’s smooth in texture.

Color payoff :

I was expecting color payoff a little less, considering it a balm. But it does give a nice color to lips.

Does This Transfers:

Yes since it’s a glossy finish.

Staying Power :

It stayed for 3 to 4 hours. As a balm it’s quite good. But L’Oreal claims that it gives 12 hours of moisture. Which is so untrue.

Moisturizing :

Let’s get into real deal. Is it moisturizing enough… Does this really stands for the claim ‘balm’., Noooo….!!! #screaming

wp-1506524180779.

Its not going to work on dry lips. It just adds glossy tint to lips. Nothing else. I’m disappointed because of this factor. Because there are multiple lipsticks available which does the same that too with less price.

Will I Repurchase?

Never.

Will I recommend?

No… There are multiple budget friendly lipsticks available which work better than this.

Kylie Cosmetics Lip gloss Literally – Review

Hey,

As there is a great sale on Kylie cosmetics, I am posting a review of one of the 3 glosses I had purchased from Kylie Cosmetics, today. So that it might be helpful for you while shopping from the site.

The shade I am reviewing today is – Literally.

wp-1504341451817.

Shall we start with a quick review???

Brand : Kylie Cosmetics

Shade name – Literally

Color – N*de

Price – 15 USD (Excluding Shipping and custom charges) I got this as a free one from Buy 2 get 1 offer.

Shelf life – Not mentioned

Packing

It’s packed in a hard paper box with melting lipstick cartoon on it. Outer box looks similar to that of Posie K and Candy K. Sorry I have misplaced the outer cartoon of this particular gloss.

wp-1504337664433.

The gloss is packed in a sturdy glass tube. Design is typical Kylie’s black melting lipstick design.

In order to help differentiating the gloss from your collection, name of the shade is been printed on a sticker which is on the bottom of the gloss.

Travel friendly??
Yes it is. It takes very less space in your handbag so yes you can travel with it easily.

Applicator

wp-1504337664278.

Same as Posie and Candy K.A soft bristled brush.

Fragrance

It has Candy like sweet fragrance. Feels like eating it. haha

Color pay off

wp-1504337664122.

Color pay off is nice. But this particular shade doesn’t suit my skin tone. It some what washes me out.

Is it moisturizing

Yessss… Unlike some other gloss, it’s super moisturizing.

Staying power

Staying power is for 2-3 hours with food…!!!

The gloss does transfers and fades while having food or sipping beverage. As I said, this particular one is n*de shade. So it doesn’t add any color to your lips in particular but adds gloss.  A very light gloss remains on lips post food intake.

 

Will I repurchase???

No. This didn’t suit my skin tone. I would love to repurchase other shades though.

Will I recommend this to you???

If you are cool toned, its a NO. If you are dusky beauty, YES you will look smooky H*t with this shade for sure. #wink

DIY Lip Mask

Hey,

I realized that I have been writing and reviewing a lot about lip products. Isn’t it???

Adding to the series, here is a Do It Yourself lip mask. Just like face mask, I’m gonna tell you how to prepare a lip mask which has been tried and tested by me.

It is believed that plump lips are sign of good health and beauty. Most of the people even under go knife to get those perfect plumper lips. But unfortunately, not all the surgical results are positive. Most of them end up getting allergic infections and reactions. All thanks to the fillers used or the surgical procedure.

Good news is, we do have some natural remedies to get healthy lips. Even though the results are not that long lasting, it’s always better to be natural than to take so many risks. Right???

So, let’s start with this easy breezy lip mask. What we need, how to prepare, how to use… Etc…

Ingredients and benefits :

  • Coconut oil

For adding moisture to lips and also for soothing effect.

  • Cinnamon powder


Cinnamon gives tingling effect when applied on lips. This results in blood circulation in lips. Thus making lips plumper. Also, cinnamon helps in lightning lips.

  • Cinnamon oil

This is most concentrated form of cinnamon. If you want mild one, skip this.

  • Peppermint Oil

This is key ingredient in most of the lip products. It gives cooling and soothing effects. Also works best on cracked lips.

How to Prepare :

Simple. Mix one spoon of each ingredient. You can add more coconut oil if you want to. Store the mask and use it whenever you want to.

How to use:

Apply it on lips for few minutes. Either scrub it off or wash with water.

Important Points:

  • Cinnamon does cause tingling effect. This is how mask works. If you can’t tolerate that, wash your lips immediately.
  • Adding cinnamon oil makes the mask more effective and more concentrated which makes more tingling effect. So absolutely up to you to decide whether to add it or no.
  • Don’t forget to apply a good moisturizer post removing mask.
  • The effectiveness depends on individual. For some results might be quick for some it might not. For some it might last longer, for some it won’t.

Do try the mask to get those Kylie Jenner lips. 😉💋
