Orvel Apricot Scrub with Soothing Cocoa Butter: Review & Price

Hello people,

How I ended up with this scrub, right? Well, I visited my sister’s house and it was standing there so proudly, amid the stack of all daily skin care basics. Ironically, I never heard about this brand which invoked my curiosity as to why I am unaware of it and she’s using it; perhaps I am missing out on something miraculous. And the dilemma goes on until I inquire. So she bought these two at some scheme going on wherein she received two at 200 bucks!! One is an Apricot Scrub, which you see here, while the other one was a diamond complexion facial scrub. If you know me for a while (through blog posts of course *wink*) then you’d know I ain’t a fan of those fairness jazz. Now, let’s begin before you doze off with my mind’s wanderings!

Description: For a clear, smooth skin, Orvel Apricot Face & Body Scrub contains very finely ground particles of Walnut Shell. To dermabreade your skin, Orvel Apricot Face & Body Scrub gently removes dry, dulling skin cells, black heads & impurities.

Directions: Moisten face, throat and neck, apply with wet fingertips and massage smoothly (carefully avoiding eyes). Try it in the shower too.

Ingredients: Emulsifying Wax, Glyceryl Monostearate, Bees Wax Cetyl Alcohol, Iso Propyl Myristate, Light Liquid Paraffin, Tween 80, T.E.A., Paraben Sodium, Propyl Paraben Sodium, Glycerin, Walnut Shell Powder, Perfumes, Water, Colour Extract of Calendula, Extract of sage, Extract if Neem Eider Flower,  Apricot Kernel Oil. 

Price: INR 160 for Net Weight of 212 grams.

Claims: Removes dead skin cells that lead to dull & blemished complexion.

The Orvel Apricot Scrub comes in a cute pale orange squeeze out tube with screw-open cap. The tube makes it convenient to be used without creating the mess of inserting hand within a tub packaging and bringing it in direct contact of any bacteria or germs. It does really look pretty sitting on top of your bathroom racks because believe me not but my eyes perhaps that itself was the reason why my curiosities were awakened when I saw it in my sister’s house.

The texture of the scrub is similar to all the apricot scrubs that I have seen. The base is cream based and small apricot scrub granules embedded in. What made it special was the fact that these granules aren’t too coarse so they help in mild scrubbing, making it appropriate for the face as well as for the body. Also, I have acne issues and one large pimple is still on its healing process and the scrub did not aggravate it.

My Experience:
I am not really facial scrubbing kinda person because there exists no single day wherein my skin is flawless, even if it means one minute pimple. This was the reason why I never wrote a review on Johara Scrub which I received in my July Fab Bag. Currently since these attackers (pimples) are lulled to sleep, I tried the Orvel Apricot Scrub with fear in my mind. Since it has soothing cocoa butter, it does leave off the skin hydrated post scrubbing. There’s no redness caused as it is certainly mild in nature. Skin does slightly brightens up instantly but that’s obviously for a short span of time; as happens with all facial cleansers or scrubs. It might work perfectly well on the face but for the body it’s slightly milder. For dry skinned ladies, you still might need some moisturizer. But the normal to oily skin type people would not need an extra hydrating layer after the wash.

Rating: 4.2 out of 5

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…
