Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum | 100% Paraben & Sulphate Free


Hi Guys,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Around 3 years ago, I had zero idea as to what a serum really is. The purpose of a serum was least acquainted with me. Gradually, I understood that there’s more to a basic skincare than a mere CTM routine. Let’s break the ice and understand the concept of serum. A serum is a liquid which is applied to the skin in order to cater several beneficial ingredients such as anti-oxidants. A serum is generally applied after toning and before moisturizing. When we cleanse our face, we devoid the skin of its natural oils and while the step of toner is the first step towards a hydrated skin, a serum is lighter than moisturizers. This means, that with each step of skincare, we are raising the bar for moisturization.

I’ve tried few serums and facial oils, and I feel serums as lightweight as Innisfree’s The Green Tea Seed Serum are what my skin prefers. Some time back, I encountered a brand over Instagram and their products seemed quite promising. Today, I shall be reviewing one of their products and the name of the brand is - Vya Naturals. Without more delays, let’s begin with the review -

Packaging:
The serum comes in a white and green cuboid cardboard-box which has all the crucial information printed. The actual serum bottle is made up of glass and comes with a dropper applicator so that you can use the serum judiciously. I loved the fact that the brand stated all information on to the serum label as well, particularly in times when you throw away the outer cardboard box. That way, you still can look up for the price or manufacturing date. Serum bottle is quite compact and I believe you can travel with it owing to its size. If it can resist breakage on fall is still a question. 

My Experience:
I love incorporating face packs and serums into my skincare because there’s no better investment within the world, then a good skincare. Since I avoid creams, only aforementioned products remain on to my skin for the longest time. And my expectations are quite basic, a clear skin, free from acne, freckles and pigmentation. When I first got this serum, I noticed that it has no fragrance at all. If you’d ask me, I would always say avoid products with fragrance in case you have a sensitive skin. The colour of the serum is pretty much transparent. It looks and feels like a water only. The consistency is super-lightweight and it gets absorbed into the skin quite quickly. It would suit all skin type but it will ideally works miraculously with a combination to oily skin because of the consistency. The serum leaves no stickiness at all but the skin immediately feels supple, hydrated and brightened. Since the serum is water-based and contains no oil, it can be accompanied with a foundation if you notice dryness after the application of foundation. Apart from this, you can use few drops to dilute your foundation and make it work like a BB cream. Till date, it has caused no breakouts on my skin and I’m pretty much a happy customer.



Rating: 4.8/5

TGL Recommends:
This serum is probably one of my HG products that I would love to order again and again. The price point of course does not fall under affordable but it’s quite decent considering the benefits it caters. It’s quite a task to find serums that are lightweight and this one does a great job. Team TGL definitely recommends it!



And that’s a wrap for today!

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…
