Biotique Bio Berberry Hydrating Cleanser


Hello people!

Firstly, there remains a discrepancy between the name that this product has been given and the method of usage that has been stated in the labelling. The product name says that it is a cleanser, and assuming it to be a face wash, I picked it up. I’ve tried Biotique products before and some of them are amazing while some don’t seem to work for me. My favourite has always been the Biotique Myristica Face pack; I’ve restocked it so many times by now. 



Biotique Berry Hydrating Cleanser comes in a cylindrical screw cap packaging. The labelling isn’t quite appealing but that goes for all Biotique products. The cylindrical bottle is white, while the cap is dark green in color. It retails at INR 170 for net content of 120 ml. It claims to cater for all skin types. 



As I mentioned earlier, assuming it to be a face wash, I went ahead for washing my face. When used it as a cleanser first, this product failed terribly in getting rid of any dirt or greasiness. This made me read the directions on the product. After reading instructions, I realized that it ought to be used post washing the face using a cotton ball. This ironical naming was quite disappointing. If I would have wanted a face moisturizer, than I would have looked for a labelling that reads- moisturizer. As a moisturizer this product works well. It gives slight moisturization without greasiness. There is a slight lemon- citrusy fragrance in this “cleanser”. One thing that I’ve usually encountered on application of this product is slight itchiness on my face and minute bumps emerging, but that is perhaps because post acne attack, my skin has turned extra sensitive and it reacts this way with a lot of cream based products. So, sensitive skin people should complete ditch on this. I’d say, buy it if you are looking for an everyday face moisturizer. Yet, it might not provide adequate moisturization to dry skin ladies. For normal to oily skin, it would work decently.

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
