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

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

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.…

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…
