Loving Lately – Skincare with LOTUS PHYTO Rx Range Review

If you are some one like me who cannot keep up with the climatic change and/or a skin care regimen then I have to share my current favourite skincare products. I have oily and acne prone skin and since I have to wear a lot of makeup due to my profession, my skin has it’s up’s and down’s. I was never really sure about the Brand LOTUS but since my skin specialist suggested it, I had to try it. And was I surprised?? I absolutely loved the PHYTO Rx Range which comes with a Face wash, Serum and Toner. There are more products to this range but I tried these 3 and it worked wonders on my skin.

Face Wash : Deep pore cleansing Face Wash is imfused with potent organic ingredients that gently clear away excess oil and deep rooted dirt to reduce the occurrence of acne/pimples. Tea Tree & Rosemary extracts provides unique potent formula for cleansed, refreshed and oil-free skin.

Price – 275/- INR

If you have tried these products then do let me know how it worked on your skin. Also would like to know about the other products from this range. After a long time I found something which really worked for my skin that is prone to breakouts and acne but everyone’s skin is different. But do give it try and maybe it will work well for you too πŸ™‚

Beautybay.com Online Shopping Review

beauty-bay-overview

This particular post is not something I am very excited about. Because nothing about this post is exciting. I do not tolerate any negativity on my blog, however, I do have to bring this to attention. I love and appreciate my fellow Fashion/Beauty/Lifestyle Bloggers and also my readers which is why I always let them know what’s best out there and so I also feel it is important that if something ain’t right, I also need to bring it to your attention.
It is no surprise that I am addicted to online shopping. I have been shopping online since years and have had a few annoying experiences where I did not get a particular product on time or it was of a great quality as it was mentioned on the website or I did not receive the order and I had to ask for refund. I did get a refund every time I have asked for it…. UNTIL
I ordered something from Beautybay.com 😐
I had ordered not one but 3 products (I do not wish to disclose what the product’s were since that is not really important and the idea of this post should not be distracted) and I never received the products nor did I ever get my refund.
Yes, I did all the jazz of writing to them and then they writing me back, which was a sheer waste of time because the reply from them actually was an automated email that they send.

##- Please type your reply above this line -##

This is was I kept getting.
I then posted on their “Facebook Page” and then finally they sent me an email asking me to take a printout of the form that was attached and sign it and scan and send it back.
SERIOUSLY????
I could not believe it. If I had all the time in the world to go out and get a printout and then scan it and send, I would have gone out and shopped instead of ordering things online. Plus they do not even have a customer care number where we can talk about any issues.
I have had the worst online shopping experience with Beautybay.com and would never suggest it to anyone.
Again, Sorry for the negative post but I thought this was important.
Let me now sulk in to it and try and re evaluate myself by sipping some Green tea and focus on what lovely things should I post for you guys next πŸ˜€ <3

Garnier White Complete Range Review* plus A Surprise

11825752_786783784752640_2557380320560037082_n

My skin no matter how great it looks in pictures, is far from it in real life. The only reason why it is the way it is in pictures is because of the amazing editing app’s. I do wish I had a flawless skin so I can be spared from the extra hard work and annoyance while uploading pictures.

I suffer from Sun burn or Sun Tan, I have pigmentation, I break out because I have a sensitive skin and to top it all…I have oily skin 😐 All the skin issues that you can think of, I have it. I was so badly looking for a Skin care product that would help me balance out my skin tone, make my look matte and also protect me from the harmful sun ray’s that damages my skin but I never found it. I kept relying on Makeup and that only gave me break out as my skin is sensitive and could not handle the every use of it. Then finally, these amazing products came to my rescue and I have been loving them πŸ˜€

It is the “Garnier White Complete Fairness FaceWash and Cream”

Yes these products were sent to me for review but I am glad to inform that I genuinely have been loving the Garnier White complete fairness Cream because it is something that I have always wanted and I have no idea how I missed out on it because I have been using Garnier products since years. It probably could have been because of the misconception that the costlier the product, the better the results. Because this Cream is so inexpensive and it still does wonders.

When you use a certain product, it is always best to use another product from the same range because most of the time’s they work better when combined and give better and faster result. In this case, it is recommended that we use the Garnier White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream with the Garnier White Complete Fairness Face Wash.

Price: 145/- INR for 100gm

11796178_786783794752639_1249904184151231169_n

I am absolutely loving it and I truly hope it works out as good as it did for me πŸ˜€ <3

As we all know Lemon is like a blessing for anyone who has the skin issue’s that I mentioned earlier. Lemon is a natural bleach for skin and can be used as a Skin lightener, Brightener, Shine Eliminator, Fighting Break out’s and Eliminating Blackhead’s. Both these products have Pure Lemon Essence and I can’t rely on any other brand as much as I would on Garnier because of my past experience with some if the products that I have used. But that’s just my opinion and I would love to know your’s too.

Do let me know if you have used these products before or if you try them after reading the post, how you liked it in the comments below πŸ™‚
