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

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…

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.…
