Hello everyone,
Today I bring to you a product from the brand Coccoon which is owned by company - EM & EM PVT LTD. I don't know how many times I have stressed about the fact that skincare is very important and you will only know why I say this is when you cross the big 30 which I have already . Back then in my teenage days we never had blogs and YouTube channels to tell us about this but now things are different although I see some girl somewhere aged between 20 & 22 telling her audience to use anti aging cream.. Lol. The point I am making here is there is an age for everything and in my opinion once you hit 25 is when you should start. So coming to today's review it is a product which I have been using for a month and I am going to tell you what I feel about it. Read on to know more.....

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review



The serum has a nice floral and fruity type of scent.The consistency is quite light weight and gets absorbed easily into the skin. I have oily skin but with time I have noticed that only my T zone gets oily so I need some moisturization and a little bit extra before I go to bed so that the serum works its magic at night and repairs my skin. So I use at night like that is  when I am supposed to use it after washing my face clean. It is moisturizing in my opinion and imparts a glow to the skin the following morning. It will work for all skin types in my opinion as it did not break out my oily skin (at the moment).Also it is Non-Comedogenic hence it won't block your pores and cause you breakouts.It is supposed to contain Kakadu which is an ingredient that contains high levels of Vitamin C which is perfect for aging skin. Continuous usage of product will help reduce fine lines and show some effect on wrinkles and darkspots.Overall it is a great anti aging night serum to try in the affordable category do check it out ladies.

MLWM Rating:4.3/5

Sentida Bath & Body Works Soaps & Lip Balm - My overall thoughts

Hello everyone,
I hope you all are doing great in whichever part of the world you may be. In Mumbai the heat & humidity has just gone to the next well and sweating profusely is one thing we are facing right now.I am very particular about hygiene and make sure to use the bath & body products in order to keep myself fragrant, clean and germ free. If you have been reading my blog since last few years you would know that I have talked about innumerable bath & body products especially those who are new in the market. I also believe in supporting new brands in the making, if you don't believe me go check my posts on the blog. So today I present to you Sentida Bath & Body Works who sent me 3 of their products to test out and I will be sharing my thoughts on them.


Sentida Bath & Body Works 

Since the brand is new they don't have a website yet but you can find them easily on Facebook & Instagram. You can send them a message and they will be happy to assist you. The name behind the brand is Meghna Rodrigues and they are based in Mumbai. They deliver all over India.

They do make and sell the following items:
Handcrafted Soaps
Body Wash
Lip Balms
Moisturizers
Face Scrubs
Body Scrubs

Let me begin by telling  you about the soaps. So I received the following ones:
Sentida Peppermint Soap
Price: Rs.300/- for 100 -110  gm (as they are handcut)
Shelf life: 2 years


Sentida Bath & Body Works Soap Review

Sentida Bath & Body Soap Review


This soap has green and blue marble kind of effect to it and looks appealing. It has a strong peppermint scent to it which I like. It lathers well on use and the smell is really calming and relaxing and leaves a cooling effect post use. The soap cleanses the skin well and does not make it dry which I like. Also one noteworthy thing I would say that this soap did not melt which is the case with most handmade soaps. In this sweltering heat this soap proved as a saviour to me so I highly recommend you guys to check it out.Also I am a big fan of  peppermint bath & body products☺


Sentida Chocolate Soap
Price: Rs.275/- for 100 -110  gm (as they are handcut)
Shelf life: 2 years


Sentida Bath & Body Works Soap  Review

Sentida Bath & Body Works Review
Chocolate OMG! I doubt if there is anyone who dislikes chocolate and a chocolate soap. Now being very honest I have not tried it but will keep you informed on my Instagram, so do follow me there and check my feed and instasnap because I post regularly there. But I am pretty sure it would be amazing and  I can't wait to try it.

Both the soaps are handcrafted and  come wrapped in a clean film which is nice so that the aroma won't fade. Nothing is really mentioned on the soap just the brand name and the variant.I have tried many handmade soaps before and I would say overall these are really good and worth trying so do check them out.

MLWM Rating: 4.5/5

Sentida Moisturizing Lemon Lip Balm
Price: Rs.125/- for 7g
Shelf life: 2 years

The lip balm comes in a small container with a screw type lid. It has a faint lemon scent to it which won't stay on your lips for long. The consistency is light weight hence I would not  recommend it to be used over lipsticks or anything like that as it will move outside the lips. I generally prefer lip balms to be a little thick as that way they adhere to the lips for  longer period of time but I also know handmade lip balms are light in texture. The lip balm does keep the lips chap free but it won't work for those with extremely crusty & dry lips unless kept as an overnight treatment. So I would say that the lip balm is light weight and is good for everyday use and since it has no color can be used by men and women too.

My final thoughts:
In this huge market of natural bath & body brands Sentida Bath & Body Works is worth giving a try. I really loved the soaps and highly recommend you to give them a try. You can also gift them to family members , relatives & friends  since the festive season is approaching instead of sweets which is so cliche. So do check them out and let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

1m Intimate Cream Wash pH 3.5 by Ozone Ayurvedics Review

Hello ladies,
Today's post is dedicated to all the lovely ladies who read my blog because the product I am going to tell you about is for intimate hygiene. Before I started my blog 5 years back I had no clue what intimate washes were. I mean like saboon se hi dho dete..Lol ! What I meant to say is that we used soap to clean our private part and here I refer to the vagina. So over the years many brands have been stressing the importance of using Intimate washes to clean your vaginal area as it is made with ingredients safe for the most important part of a woman's body. As some of you may know that soaps do contain chemicals and may not be safe to use there and hence it is only necessary to use an intimate wash which helps to maintain the pH balance and also solves other issues related to vaginal infections etc. So today I am going to share my thoughts on 1m Intimate Cream Wash pH 3.5  by Ozone Ayurvedics which kind of stands apart from the other ones I have tried. Keep on reading to know my thoughts on it.





Price: Rs.138/-  for 100g product  You can buy it online HERE


Ingredients & Other information:





Key features/claims by the brand about the product:
To maintain the natural balance of the intimate area, you need a cleanser that has an ideal pH of 3.5*.

1m Intimate Cream Wash is enriched with Lactic Acid, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Tea Tree Oil to maintain the intimate area's natural acidic balance.

Reduces dryness, itchiness, soreness, burning, unpleasant odour and symptoms of private part discharge

It also restores the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus naturally found in the intimate area and significantly lowers your risk of private part infections


Packaging:
It comes in a white opaque tube with a flip cap which is amazing. There is no  product accumulation at the tube opening which I like. The ingredients and all the possible information you need to know about the product is printed at the back of the tube. It is definitely travel friendly in my opinion.




Coming to my experience trying the product - I have never tried a product like this before. It is thick like a cream and will not foam like the gel based ones but creates a little lather good enough to get the cleaning job done. As per their instruction you can apply it and leave it on the vaginal area or use it during your bath and wet the area apply it leave on 2 minutes and rinse it off which I do. After rinsing the product, it  comes off easily which I like. The smell is perfumey but amazing and the scent reminds of me of a luxury product I may have used in the past. One may argue about the scent but then how will it take the odour off from that area?? Makes sense right.





So vaginal discharge is a common problem for me and many other women I know. While some of it is normal, excessive can always be associated with any hormonal problem you may have and it is best to visit a gynecologist. So this wash does a good job of cleansing the area but does not make it dry even though I saw the ingredients has Cetosteryl Alcohol. But I have used it and I found no issue at all. I have been loving this wash and do recommend it to all my ladies fam who are reading my post. I do not blog about anything without testing and I can safely say that this product is worth using and a big thumbs up from me. And yes it is Cruelty free and vegan too so do try it ladies.

So what do you ladies think of this intimate wash and have you tried it yet?? Do let me know in the comments section.

Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash Review

Hello everyone,
I hope you all are doing well. If you are from India you may have definitely heard about the skincare brand ORGANIC HARVEST whose products I have already featured before on the blog you may check those reviews as well. They have a variety of skincare, body care, hair care and lip balms in their collection. In today's skincare scenario everyone looks for cruelty free and products devoid of chemicals and parabens. Well my answer to your problem is Organic Harvest. So I did  get a chance to try out the Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash and I am going to tell you my experience trying it.. Read on to know more....



Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash Review

Price: Rs.215/- for 50 ml and Rs.395/- for 100 ml. Available online with discount  HERE

Key Ingredients:
Aqua, Pure Ribose, Scrubbing beads and Polyquaternium-79 in surfactant base.





Brand description about the product:
A Paraben free formula which cleanses, scrubs, and provides whitening to your skin. The active used in this face wash is pure Ribose, a natural pentose obtained by biotechnology from corn seed sugars. It restores energy to the skin. It has irregular shaped granules, soft enough to prevent the skin from scratches.

The product is free of:
 Parabens
 Mineral Oil 
 Animal Ingredients.

Packaging:
The product comes in a dark green opaque tube with the brand name, claims and all other necessary information printed on it. I love when tubes are transparent though you can tell how much product is left but that is just my opinion. Overall the packaging does not look cheap, it has a flip cap and I did not find any problem of spillage and strangely product accumulating on the cap.


Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash Review

If you know me then you would know that I keep experimenting with face washes which are on the affordable end and this one is a bit more pricey, well obviously because they contain organic ingredients and is free of chemicals but seeing the whole list of ingredients would have made me happier as you know I am a blogger and always curious to know what is in the product I use.


Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash Review

Coming to the face wash it is has a nice sea blue color with green granules and is thick like a paste which I like as I am not a fan of runny face washes. The smell reminds of me of a bathing soap I used in my childhood and makes me feel nostalgic. It contains granules rather than beads which most brands put in their face washes and some studies say they are not great for the skin. So these granules are not harsh on the skin and help in gently exfoliating the skin. It lathers well and does a great job of cleansing all dirt & oil from the skin.I did not notice my skin getting dry post use but using a moisturizer is always recommended. This face wash will be ideal for all those who work at a full time job as being outside makes the skin dull and dirty easily. Also someone who has tanning issues this can help them as well as it brightens the skin after repeated uses. Can't say about whitening but yes it does a great job of cleansing and gentle exfoliation. I highly recommend this to those with oily, greasy and dull skin.

MLWM Rating: 4.5/5

Organic Harvest 3-in-1 Face Wash does a great job of cleansing and gently exfoliating the face with the granules it contains. It keeps the skin dirt & oil free and fresh looking. Have you tried this face wash or intend to?? Please let me know in the comments section ☺☺

Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with White Tea & Jasmine Review

Hey everyone,
I am sure if you regularly read my blog you will know about the brand Iraa and their products about whom I have talked about here on my blog. Continuing with the series of reviews I shall be reviewing  the Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with  White Tea &  Jasmine which is meant for all skin types. So I have been trying and testing it for  a month and will share my thoughts on it in this post. Please keep on reading to know more.....


Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with  White Tea &  Jasmine  Review

Price:  Rs.145/- for 100 ml. Available online HERE
Shelf life: 2 years

Ingredients & other information about the product:




Description by the brand:
Soothe and hydrate your skin with this pleasantly aromatic mist that is packed with anti-oxidants. Hydrating Face Mist helps to revitalise and tone your skin; all you need is a spritz or two of this luxuriating spray. This face spritz contains natural extract of white tea and jasmine that repair, restore, replenish and protect the skin.

Packaging:
The face mist comes in a transparent spritz bottle with a sticker at the front and back mentioning ingredients and other information you need to know about the product. The product is user and travel friendly. You can carry it in your office bag and spritz it on your face when necessary and required.


Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with  White Tea &  Jasmine  Review

Coming to the product the color of the mist is lavender purple in the bottle from what I see but comes across as clear when used and does not transfer on the face. It contains White tea which acts as an Antioxidant, moisturizes, is anti-ageing & anti-inflammatory and Jasmine which is Moisturizing, nourishing and has a natural aroma. 

Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with  White Tea &  Jasmine  Review

The product is dermatologically approved and clinically tested which is a big thumbs up. I could not spot any fishy ingredients in this one and all are safe to use on the skin. It contains glycerin which acts as a moisturizer for the skin. If you have oily skin it will make your skin sticky hence this product is best suited for someone who has normal to dry skin in my opinion unlike meant for all skin types as the brand has claimed.The jasmine fragrance is nice and makes you feel calm and fresh on use but if you don't like this fragrance stay away from it. This product is perfect as a makeup fixer/setting spray as the glycerin keeps the makeup in place and makes the face look less powdery and cakey. Since I have combination to oily skin I have been using it as a setting spray and have been loving it.

In conclusion I would like to say that Iraa Instaradiance Hydrating Face Mist with  White Tea &  Jasmine is best suited for those with normal to dry skin and in general for anyone who wants to use it as a makeup fixing spray. With all natural ingredients this seems amazing to try and I highly recommend.

MLWM Rating:4.2/5

I hope this review was useful and informative to all those reading. Comment below with your thoughts and do let me know if you have tried this product or intend to ☺

Blue Heaven Diamond Blush on (502 &505) Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,
I am posting after a long time I know but I was very sick. I have mentioned about the same on my YouTube channel, if you have not checked that video you can check it HERE. It has been raining crazily in Mumbai with floods in many parts but thankfully where we live everything is ok and now back to normal. I feel the media only sensationalizes certain happenings but the reality is something different, What do you say?? Let me know in the comments section.Anyway today  I am going to review the Blue Heaven Diamond Blushes which are very popular on YouTube and in the blogosphere. Hence I purchased 2 shades of my own money and would like to review them for all of you. Please keep on reading to know my thoughts...


Blue Heaven Diamond Blush on (502 &505) Review & Swatches

Price: Rs.125/- Buy  502 here and 505 here


Ingredients & Brand Description:



BLUE HEAVEN DIAMOND BLUSH ON has a soft cream whipped formula that is long lasting and blend very smoothly with your skin.It feels virtually weightless and glides on quickly and easily giving a natural look to your face.

Soft creamy formula that is long lasting and highly spreadable and velvety feel. Apply with the applicator and feel the magic of smooth glide.

Packaging:
The blush comes in a cardboard packaging and the color is visible from the front. The blush comes in a round pan with a transparent lid. There is no mirror but you get a small puff for application which I find useless to be honest. The packaging needs improvement big time considering all these unknown brands in the market offer better packaging now a days. It is not travel friendly but can be carried around in my opinion.

Blush no 502:
If you check pictures online they never help in deciding the color and that is why reviews by bloggers and Youtubers come handy. So when I was watching a video I fell in love with this shade and ordered it in no time. When I used to view it online I thought it wasn't what I was looking for but I got it and I love it. 502 is a beautiful rosy brown color which flatter all skin types and add a lovely flush of color to the face. It has shimmer which is not over the top I feel. It can also be used for contouring. I truly fell in love with this one.It can also be used to apply as eye shadow.

Blush no 505:
It  is a beautiful golden bronze color which looks amazing as a bronzer cum blush for someone who has a skin tone like me. For deeper skin tones this can work as a highlighter. I have used this blush as an eye shadow as well and it has worked well for me.The pigmentation is really good for the price. The smell is quite strong but will vanish on application of the product. The color is stunning and has lasted on my face all day.This shade is one of their best sellers and I can tell why.

These blushes are value for money and can be used for multiple purposes hence I highly recommend them. Both of them have shimmer which adds a glow to the face. If you have textured skin or skin with pores then it may accentuate it hence apply wisely as shimmers would enhance it further.Blue Heaven blushes are good considering the price point and is ideal for someone who is new into makeup or even otherwise.Go grab it if you haven't yet, If you have tried this blush do let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Do comment and let me know in the comments section. Anyway coming to my today's review it is from the brand Iraa about whom I have talked about on my blog and in my last YouTube video please do watch it if you haven't yet.I shall be reviewing the Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 today in the post. To know my experience and thoughts on it please keep on reading....

Ingredients:

Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 Review

Brand claims:
Instant whitening

Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 Review
Packaging:
The product comes enclosed in a cardboard box with all information on it including the date of manufacturing, price and ingredients list. The container is made of plastic with a screw cap and looks nice, not like some cheap tub of cream if you know what I mean.The tub is travel friendly in my opinion.

Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 Review
First up the cream is white in color and smells nice and not perfumey which I like. The main and key ingredients of this cream is white tea which acts as an anti oxidant, is anti inflammatory, moisturizes and good for anti ageing then comes saffron which as everyone knows is good skin whitening and brightening. Well Ahem! I am not into whitening and promote that on my blog but what I can tell you that the cream instantly brightens up the face and makes you look radiant. I have oily to combination skin and I use this after my bath on my face and also before I apply makeup on my face as a moisturizer.If you have oily skin this may make you oily after an hour or so.

Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 Review



 In Mumbai the humidity is high so my skin became greasy as well but not immediately hence I do not use a lot of it to be honest. This will work best for those who have combination to normal skin to dry skin and as it gives a mattifying effect post application and then may become oily after few hours which is ok for these skin types. Since I have combination skin I have been liking it as an everyday moisturizer. It also has SPF 30 which is amazing and does a good job of moisturizing my skin.The ingredients list does not contain parabens from what I read, which I love and I also think it is affordable and worth trying.

MLWM Rating:4.4/5

Iraa Instaradiance Whitening Day Cream with SPF 30 is a good everyday cream for those who have combination - normal - dry skin in my opinion. Have you tried this cream or intend to? Please let me know in the comments section.
