Products I Regret Buying!


Hello people,
There are always those purchases which remain in your storage and you’ve hardly used them because they simply aren’t worth it. My dad hates abundant tubes and bottles lying around in bathroom which is why I throw out anything that I feel serves me dissatisfaction. I usually avoid brimful of chemicals as my skin is weirdly rebellious and sensitive. Products that break outs my face, I’d rather get rid of them then cause further damage by using it. So, let’s begin with the post, shall we?


VLCC Radiant Fairness Day Cream



Well honestly, I by no means endorse fairness related products because I believe they are also to be blamed for colour discrimination that is so rampant, even in countries wherein majority of the people have beautiful olive skin. This VLCC Radiant Fairness Day Cream was bought when my sister used to have her treatment going on with their centres. The staff there sang about goodness of their products and because it was my sister’s pre wedding days, she had to invest her trust and money into everything and anything that can enhance her skin.  This showed no significant changes on her and when I tried it, I felt it gave good hydration and instant fairness which I am least concerned about and that too was also temporary. It retails for INR 1200 and that is definitely too much for a barely a facial moisturizer I guess, no?


Patanjali Anti Wrinkle Cream


When 2 years back I was attacked severely by acne, my dad took me to Patanjali’s doctor whose visit was like awkward and mind boggling. She suggested me so many medications and products, and one of them was this cream. Ironically, when she wrote ‘Anti Wrinkle Cream’, I was like no I have no wrinkles issue and she revealed that it’s not really meant for wrinkles but pigmentation and scars. Frustrated by peoples’ annoying comments and suggestions on acne, I went ahead with this, completing almost 2 tubes. This cream hardly eliminates your scars and all it did was made my skin oilier. Although it is priced at INR 150 but Patanjali products are usually a miss for me except few face washes and packs.


ADS Liquid Lipstick


I don’t know if this problem has emerged in all their liquid lipsticks or the one I got has dried up slightly. The lipstick formulation has dried up now, making application uneasy. Also, I picked this up assuming it to be a dark pink colour but this one is a neon pink and I am not into neon colours for lipstick. Thus, it remains out of my consideration now. It retails at INR 120 and I have reviewed it here- http://lyfabubble.blogspot.in/2016/06/ads-long-lasting-lip-gloss.html



Until Next Time,
Take Care <3

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…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
