Hola Peeps,

How are you doing post Raksha-Bandhan binging? I’m kinda unwell; which is A-N-N-O-Y-I-N-G! Getting unwell when you have your outfit planned & you’re excited to try it out. Anyways, today’s post is especially for my lovely readers who have a combination to oily skin type; just like me. So, let’s jump in with the review of Himalaya Herbals Oil Free Radiance Gel Cream/Gel

More on Key Ingredients:

▶Barbary Fig – Contains polysaccharides that are known to provide moisture, leaving your skin gently hydrated.
▶Winter Melon – Exhibits anti-oxidant properties that keeps skin healthy, protected and rejuvenated.

Packaging: The Himalaya Herbals Oil Free Radiance Gel comes in an outer packaging of cardboard box with all the information as to how the product can be used and its constituents are imprinted over it. Inside you’d find an opaque glass jar with screw open lid of dark green colour. After the removal of the lid, you’d find a white separator which helps in protecting the lid from content spilling and falling beneath it. This also makes the packaging travel friendly & of course leak proof. Since it has a glass jar, you can simply pack it up in your suitcase amidst layers of clothes. Although, I’ve travelled with the same to my college and never really faced any hardship. 

My Experience:
I detest the feel of any moisturizer on my face & for that matter; even a foundation after some time makes me simply wanna wash my face. This is solely the reason why, moisturizers are a strict NO-NO for me. In fact, some years back I was introduced to Dr. Reddy’s Venussa Moisturizing cream which is comparatively light but after some time the sweating does take over. And then I was introduced to Fuschia Vkare’s Oil Control Gel which gives a menthol sort of feel. As a person with oily skin, gel based things work much better for me. Cream based products, especially hydrating, makes my skin breakout! So this is how, I ended up picking this up at Himalaya Stores. I’ve never seen anyone except makeup brands displaying their products for testing before you actually invest upon them. But Himalaya Stores had a corner wherein you can try products before adding them to your card; although not every product was their but some definitely were there.

The packaging of heavy opaque jar might not be travel friendly for some but at this price point I must say the packaging is kinda fancy. It also comes with a segregator plastic cover which sits beneath the main green lid for saving the product from any kind of spillage. The fragrance is subtle & sweet. If you ask me anything that is replicated by this fragrance, I can't really answer that. Since it’s a gel, the consistency isn’t creamy but of course gel like! On application, it immediately gives a slight cooling sensation & also gets absorbed within the skin pretty fast. But it caters what its meant for; that is hydration. About the radiance part, I can’t really say that anything unusual can be noticed. But you can definitely use this for moisturizing purposes as well as for usage just before you apply your base makeup. Somewhat this gel & Coloressence’s Makeup Base Primer gives an identical feel to the skin. It doesn’t make your face oily which leads to sweating. My experience with Aura Vedic’s Skin Lightening Formula was such wherein it made me sweat much more than usual.

❤Fancy Packaging; as can be seen within Expensive Products
❤Gel Base which works well for combination to oily skin type
❤Does not cause sweating due to no creamy texture
❤Hydrates the skin without sticky feel
❤Gives subtle cooling sensation
❤Gets absorbed really quickly!


👉Jar is made up of glass which makes it heavy and prone to breaking. 

Rating: 4.0 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Final Verdict: 
If you have a combination to oily skin type & you seek a subtle moisturizer and this one at its price point is really amazing!

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

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

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…
