How I Apply:

Scoop out a little amount of the scrubbing content from the jar and start applying onto the desired area. Make sure to rub into circular motions with a gentle hand for 1-2 minutes. Wash it off with water; preferably cold water. You must be wondering why cold water I say. In order to get rid of clogged pored and blackheads (that is before you begin to scrub) that’s when the congested pored need to be open. This is why, a lot of the skincare experts suggest getting a steam which works miraculously well for getting rid of any gunk within the skin. But after the scrubbing has been done, the task in hand remains to be of closing the pores immediately so that the pored do not become vulnerable for being clogged again. Thus, use cold water while washing off the remnants of the scrub. Cold water is known to close down the pores and you can also use ice for the same purpose. 

What I like about Greenberry Organics packaging is that they have colour coded each product based on one of the crucial key ingredient endowed within the products. This makes it easy to identify the tubs/jars if you have more than one lying within your vanity. The jar is made up of transparent mirror look alike plastic and a lid which opens upon rotation. I think within past, I’ve got one of their masks wherein the lid failed to close properly after one or two use. Thankfully, it isn’t the case this time. Also, there’s a plastic stopper sort of additional sheet which protects the content from sticking onto the lid and making everything messy. In case you didn’t notice, Greenberry Organics has now started to incorporate an additional layer of mono cartons which gives a lot about brand details. The mono carton has a paper seal as well at the opening of mono carton,  which makes ensures that the product you get is completely brand new. One thing which I would suggest to the brand concerning mono carton is probably to release different cartons for each product so that it doesn’t turn into hassle to open the carton and see each time which one has which product's jar inside.

My Experience:
You guys know by now that my skin is oily and prone to acne; which is why most of the times I have a minor bump or two. Because of these bumps, I can’t really look up to scrubs for improving my skin’s texture. There are very rare chances when my skin remains acne less completely & this experience lasts only for a day or two. Within these exceptional days, I resort to scrubs that aren’t too creamy. The problem with scrubs is - the manufactures believe that to counter the abrasiveness of harsh granules, a cream formulation would balance out the things. But being a person with oily skin, I detest cream based products. This is why, I legit use no day or night cream within my skincare routine. Scrubs with gel base are what work wonders for my skin. For that matter, even powdered cleansers are good due to the fact that I can customize them as per my skin’s need.

When I saw GBO’s De Tan Scrub being launched, I was curious to try it out; yet at the back of my mind was the fear of getting a cream based exfoliator. When I unboxed the product, I did see cream base within this scrub; but did it work well for me? Remain glued till the end of the review to find this out! *Suspense Heightened* The fragrance of this scrub is more onto the herbal side. I can find resemblance of the smell but can’t recollect what exactly it smells of. Trust me not when it comes to describing fragrances. My nose only has speciality is to discover if my mother made pulao tonight or not! *LOL* If I talk about the scrubbing granules, I must disclose that they are pretty much milled and small; and hence not harsh onto the skin.

On my first attempt, I used a small amount of the scrub and massaged it in circular motions onto the wet skin; amidst the shower time. What I liked about the formulation of this exfoliator is that – though creamy, it isn’t super creamy which causes unwanted sweating onto my face. I used it for roughly 2 minutes and the immediate results were radiant, glowing and soft skin. There was a slight difference onto my skin’s tone as well. Post sweating, my face does look slight tanned and this tanning is mere temporary which evades as soon as I wash off my facial skin. In case you still don’t prefer cream based scrubs, you can use the trick which I’ve always employed. Instead of washing your face and then exfoliating the skin, reverse the order and you’d realize how the face wash would take off excess hydration off your face. Do let me know within the comments down below if you’ve tried or liked this little hack! 

▶Now products come with a mono carton packaging too
▶Makes the skin radiant, soft to touch and freed of gunk.
▶Helps in removing the tanning by exfoliating the old skin cells and enabling new skin cells’ production.
▶Does not overtly moisturize the skin
▶Comes in an amazing colour coded packaging
▶Can be used on both face as well as body
▶Small scrubbing granules make it non-abrasive 


👉Slightly pricey but you can obviously get it online at discounted prices!

Rating: 4.8/5

Final Verdict:
In case you have normal to oily skin and you don’t want any scrub that leaves a lot of unwanted moisture onto your face, then go ahead pick this one! The granules being small, makes it apt for being used as both a body scrub and a facial scrub. Who doesn’t prefer products which can double up to end your tension of getting two different ones?

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.…

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

Bloggers Event: #PoutItRight with Jaquline USA's Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints

Hi Guys Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Last month, I was invited by the team of New U (Dabur subsidiary) on their launch of Lip Pop Matte Tints. I’ve been to their events before and previous one, I presume, was the release of their BB Stroke Nail Enamel.Now they have also incorporated some vibrant matte shades by the name ‘Back2School’. I must warn you to go visit their stores ASAP as this range has a gorgeous mint shade which I’ve never seen amongst affordable Indian brands! 

The event took place in Smoke House Deli at DLF Place Mall Saket (Delhi) in the afternoon. The place had an amazing decor with quirky walls and an interplay of white and grey theme running everywhere. With around 50 bloggers, we got to try out different shades of Lip Pops and nail lacquers that were recently launched in the New U store. I was so excited that I got rid of my texture nail paint then & there and tried the shades that were placed at the counter. 

The Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints are available in …
