Skincare Routine for this Festive Season | Combination + Oily Skin Type

Hi Guys 😊😊

We are amidst a month which is full of festivals each week! And in case you’re still seeking a skincare routine to look bomb(dot)com, then consider your dilemmas resolved. Today, I shall elaborate upon my personal skincare for looking super glowing, with a healthy & pimple free skin. Might be that this post shall turn out small but who cares! It’s all about solving your worries than fighting the SEO rule of Content Ratio = to Page Coding. *Meh* 😏

Before beginning, let me first elaborate upon my skin type. This will ensure that you can understand what product would work well for you if it’s turning out good for me. My skin is combination to oily; it gets hyper active to produce oil within summers whereas in winters I get dry patches. Also, just a little disclaimer – some things might work for me & they might do no miracle for you. Make sure to do a patch test beforehand. I know, I’ve heard this statement before a lot many times and you’d be like “Girl, hand and facial skin is like sisters from different misters”! 😐 I get your concern, that’s why I advise you to patch test onto your neck region rather than wrist. So, with that we begin today’s post –

STEP 1: AHA Glow – Skin Rejuvenating Face Wash 

AHA Glow is one of the best facial cleansers that I return back to when my skin strives to look good. It’s like that one remedy I know which would stop me from getting more acne or treating ones which already exist onto my face. Now, I’ve tried Cetaphil and that expensive lot but AHA Glow is an Indian manufacturing by Torrent Pharma. It contains – Aloe Vera, Glycolic Acid, Vitamin E & Gel Base. What I love about this is it cleans off dirt and keeps away the excess sebum.

👉Rejuvenates the skin by encouraging the shedding of old and dead skin cells.
👉Reduces the number of superficial wrinkles
👉Improves skin texture and tone
👉Unblocks and cleanses the pores

STEP 2: Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face 

This is a multipurpose product which you can use as a cleanser, scrub & mask. I love it exclusively for masking purposes. It makes the skin soft & smooth with immediate radiance endowed. Also, it doesn’t leave the skin dry and makes it perfect not only for oily skin but normal to combination skin as well. For hydration purposes, it has aloe vera and jojoba oil into it. Thankfully, this one is parabens and sulphate free. Since Mud Ash also comprises Tea Tree, this makes it perfect for keeping acne at bay which erupts only when their emergence should have been abolished!

STEP 3: Fuschia’s Pomegranate Pearls Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub

There’s a reason as to why I prefer masking first and then scrubbing. For a good exfoliated skin, it’s always necessary to keep the skin supple and moisturized so that any dirt or clogging can be easily removed. Now, scrubs won’t completely get you rid of black or white heads but scrubbing for a minute or two would create your face as a canvas wherein extraction would be really easy. Fuschia’s Pomegranate Pearls Face Scrub has an amazing bubblegum fragrance which I love sniffing upon. Also, the base of it is really hydrating but leaves no grease on the face post washing off. The exfoliating granules are really minute which makes it suitable for acne prone or sensitive skin. But please remember, in case you have a pimple at its full bloom, DO NOT use an exfoliator. Wait for few days till it naturally subsides.

STEP 4: Himalaya Herbals Oil Free Gel Cream [Day Use] (for Moisturizing)

I’ve never liked those creams that not merely cater hydration but also become one of the woes which give you glimmer face with sweat! And having oily skin, you don’t want more oil slathered onto your face. This is why, a gel based moisturizer or cleanser works best for an oily skin. Sometime back, I picked up this oil free gel from Himalaya Stores and I've loved it's formulation. It works really well as a base for your everyday makeup and in case you dont wanna use a primer on an everyday basis, this can work as an easy replacement to help you in blending that makeup flawlessly!

STEP 5: LOA’s Miracle Oil [Night Use]

True to its name, this facial oil is indeed miraculous! On days when I've seen my skin getting attacked by more than two pimples, I know my weapon for the night. Application is so easy for this, all you need to do is take out few drops and massage it onto your face for a minute. Trust me, it has helped in taming and calming my acne every single time; almost to 50%. It nourishes your skin at the time you don't have to go out and worry about sweating. It does smell a little weird but the amount of results that are acquired after its usage, stops me never from picking this product. It's completely natural and suitable for all skin type.

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…
