REVIEW: Boots Cucumber 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner and Boots Fragrance Free Cleansing Lotion

I am so in love with these two fabulous cleansers from Boots! You might wonder why I need two from the same brand. Read on!





Four years ago, someone gifted me the Boots Cucumber 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner and the Boots Fragrance Free Cleansing Lotion. I haven't felt the need to try out other cleansers since.

SMELL

While the first cleanser smells cucumber-y and fresh, the other cleanser is fragrance free, which is great for people like me who don't like fragrant beauty products.

CONSISTENCY

 The cucumber cleanser is thin and very light. It removes impurities and dirt from the skin and the excess oil. But, it does not leave the skin dry. This product is great for the summer and monsoon.

The other cleanser is thick and creamy and is suitable for people in with dry skin. I usually use this one in the winter.



MAKEUP REMOVAL

The cucumber cleanser easily removes makeup in a few swipes. The other cleanser works well, but I feel that you need to swipe a few more times.

PRICE

The cleansers cost around Rs 300 each. The are a little expensive but worth the buy. 



Love!!!

FASHION TIPS: HOW TO STYLE THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS (LWD)

Move over the LBD (Little Black Dress), the LWD is here!! Summer demands white and the LWD is a fantastic option for this season.

You can dress it up or play it down depending on where you want to wear it to. Here are some styling tips for the LWD (looks created at www.limeroad.com).


1. Go All White


White is easy on the eyes in the summer and you can never go wrong with it. Wear your LWD with white accessories and step out in style.




2. Go Neon

Wear neon accessories with your dress. The pop of colour displays your fabulous taste. Just ensure that you keep your accessories to a minimum.



3. Go Girly


Accessorize your LWD with girly accessories, such as floral belts, butterfly earrings etc. This style is perfect for a girls' day out.



 4. Go Monochrome


Black and white make a great style statement.You can also add a hint of gold or silver to your monochrome outfit.


5. Go Glimmer

White and gold are a classic combination that exudes sophistication. This look is perfect for brunch (with minimal gold accents) or a night out.

 

6. Go Formal


To add a more formal look to your LWD, add tan accessories and a chunky necklace. Throw on a pair of sober sandals and a jacket and you are ready for a formal meeting.


7. Go Nautical


Red, white and blue are a great combination. You need to have just the right hint of blue and red in your outfit so that your LWD still shines through.



Waiting for your comments!! Loads of love!!

REVIEW: Maybelline Glitter Mania in 'Dazzling Diva'!

I recently tried the silver shade from the Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania range of nail paints. And was I impressed! The nail paint was not just shiny silver, but had actual glitter particles.

Buy it here!


While the Maybelline Color Show nail paints are priced at Rs. 75, this range will cost you Rs. 125 for 6ml of product.

Pros:


  • Pretty shade
  • Not too expensive
  • One coat does the trick (see the pic); two coats ensure opacity
  • Long lasting
  • Suitable for nail art


Cons:

  • Does not provide a smooth texture
  • Removing it is a little tedious
This is one of the best textured nail paints in the market right now that doesn't burn a hole in your pocket! I am going to check out some of the other shades soon. Let me know your experience with the 'Dazzling Diva'. Comment below.





Love!!! :)

FASHION TIPS/ SHOPPING GUIDE: Nine Fashion Essentials That Will Get You Through The Monsoon!



Hello lovelies!!

The monsoon is here and so are the rains and humidity. We can't let our fashion spirit wane this sticky season!! Here are some tips that will help you be a vibrant monsoon diva!


1. 100% Cotton

Forget the polyesters and rayons, bring out the cottons. Cotton lets you breathe through the humidity. Unlike synthetic fabrics, you can air-dry cottons to remove sweat odour and wear them one more time.

4.  No Layering!

Monsoon is all about being comfortable in less clothes. Avoid wearing jackets, shrugs etc in this season.

5.  Simple Cuts Do The Trick!

A-line short, flowy dresses and straight-line maxidresses are really in this monsoon.
