AVA Spring Pond Collection: Face & Body Scrub: Oily Skin

Hello people,

I got this AVA Face & Body Scrub in my September Fab Bag. The Fab Bag crew always tries to carpool emerging brands into their journey so that the audience can be introduced to new launches in the market. AVA is a startup Natural Skincare Brand which focuses upon providing organic and high quality products. They claim to be the 1st brand in India which works on pure Ayurvedic formula using modern technology of stem cells and natural ingredients. They are currently associated with J W Marriott and Shangri-La. 

Benefits: AVA gentle gel scrub helps to exfoliate the dead cells, ingrowth, dirt, excess oils from the surface of the skin with finely ground apricot and walnut shells leaving the skin smooth and brighter with oriental notes of lemon grass and tea tree which helps to control sebum and mint along with citric oils help to clarify the skin.

   ·    No Fragrance
   ·    Pharma Graded Colors
   ·    No SLS
   ·    Organic Preservatives

Key Ingredients: Purified water, glycerine, aloevera gel, licorice extract, mulberry extract, ashwagandha extract, mint oil, lemongrass oil, tea tree extract, apricot & walnut scrub, color, base q.s

Price: INR 300 for 80 grams of product.

My Skin Type: Before going into the review, I shall first brief out about my skin so that you can get the wider picture. I have an acne prone skin which is somewhere between combination to oily. It is highly active in summers, producing excessive sebum. But in winters, it gets dry, stretchy and slightly flaky! I have slight faded scars as well.

Packaging: AVA Face & Body Scrub comes in a plastic bottle with a golden shiny screw open lid. Also, there’s a plastic stopper placed as well so that the product does not spill.

Since my face is never flawless and always gets one or two bumps here and there, I avoid facial scrubs for the fear of aggravating them. So whenever I receive scrubs, I employ them for my bodily purpose. But when I took this one along with my shower, I gave it a go because my mind was like “It’s cool, I can make it work out via gentle scrubbing motions”. The fragrance is citrusy and the ingredient list made me recollect that it’s that of the lemon grass. The texture of this scrub is thick and I love the fact that instead of a cream base, it has a gel base, which makes it appropriate for the oily skin type. The consistency is thick and the granules are so finely ground that it hardly feels harsh onto the face. It gives mild exfoliation and brightens up the face post scrubbing procedure. I also noticed that unlike the cream based scrub; this does not overtly moisturize the skin but removes excess oil and leaves the skin soft to touch. On application, it does give a slight cooling sensation due to mint.

Final Verdict: I like it so much that I am never gonna use it for body, but save it exclusively for my face! Till now, I’ve always ran away from scrubbing my face because whenever I did, it would trouble my pimples. This one is like the perfect scrub that suit my skin so perfectly well as if customized keeping my skin’s behaviour.

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…
