Even though we do not celebrate this festival officially I do light a diya as it gives me the feeling of light and hope which one should never loose as that keeps us alive.I am also sure that you may have shopped or have planned to shop gifts for yourself and your loved ones. For me as a makeup enthusiast I only see makeup as gifting option for women ..Lol but then cannot help it. Just like every other brand is launching makeup and especially lipsticks Oriflame India did launch - THE ONE EXPRESS COLLECTION which comprises of Lip Crayons and Drama Kohl Eye pencils which I am excited to show you and tell you about. For today I shall be reviewing and swatching THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS. Please keep on reading to know more....

BUBBLE GUM PINK
This shade is a very light pink color and will not suit our Indian skin tones in my opinion.You can use it to lighten other lipsticks.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in BUBBLE GUM PINK

CORAL CRAZE
It is a beautiful coral color which is a mix of pink and orange - more pink I would say.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in CORAL CRAZE

FUCHSIA FANTASY
It is a bright pink color with blue undertones and brightens my complexion. One of my favorites.

ORANGE CRUSH
This is a true orange color and brightens up the complexion. It will suit every skin tone in my opinion unless you do not like orange lipsticks.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in ORANGE CRUSH


RED RUSH
This red can be best described as red with pink undertones and will compliment every skin tone.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in RED RUSH

PURPLE HAZE
This color is perfect for fall/winter and I love it.It is a deep berry color with purple in it.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in PURPLE HAZE

INDIGO DARE
As the name suggests the shade is those for people who dare and are experimental. It is a beautiful Indigo,essentially a mixture of blue & purple. I think it looks amazing on me to be honest but the color can be a personal choice for most.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in INDIGO DARE

Packaging:
The crayons come in a jumbo pencil format as one can tell and has a transparent cap which makes the color visible from the top.The body of the lip crayon  is grey in color and bears the name of the variant on the tube itself.It is travel friendly and user friendly in my opinion, only one needs to be careful while closing the cap.

The lip crayon are smooth in texture and buttery and easily glide on the lips.The pointed edge of the crayon helps in outlining the lips and reaching the corners of the mouth easily.There is no scent to it and feels nice and comfortable on the lips. The matte lip trend is still here but I sometimes love these semi matte type of lipstick formulas as they do not dry my lips.The have no shimmer which is a big Yay! and makes your lips look fuller on application.

THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS by ORIFLAME Review & Swatches

The lighter colors fade away quickly and the ones which are bright and vibrant do leave a stain behind when they fade and also disappear from the centre of the lips which kind of looks odd but one can always reapply I feel.Overall they last for 4 hours and in between meals. All the shades are perfect for Indian skin tones except Bubble Gum Pink but you can mix it with some other color to create a custom shade.If you follow Oriflame India on their Instagram they have shown how to use these to create fun lip looks i.e ombre lips or mixing two or more colors for fun. I leave that upto you how you may want to use it. To conclude I would say these are semi - matte, have good color pigment to them and the staying power is fairly good. These also make perfect gifting options, so what are you waiting for?? Go grab them while they are on offer.

I will try to swatch these in a video on my YouTube channel or social media whichever I feel comfortable because as you may know I am recovering from my back pain and I do not want to strain and cause more trouble, I hope you understand.Stay tuned for the same ☺

MLWM Rating: 4.2/5

So what do you think of Oriflame's THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS?? Aren't they fun?? Would you try it or already have please let me know in the comments section.

Wishing all of my readers and followers a very Happy Diwali & Prosperous New Year 2017 ♥♥

Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

Hi everyone,
I know it has been 2 weeks since I posted anything here but if you follow me on my Instagram handle you would know why. I have been in so much pain (back pain) which started more than 2 weeks ago. I have had excruciating back pain (muscle pull) that I cannot even describe and I am still in pain while posting this. I will do a video perhaps on my YouTube channel mentioning what had happened soon, if you have not subscribed to my channel yet you can do so HERE. Thank you to all those who asked me about my well being and those who did not well I really don't care and what can one expect of strangers on the internet, I mean even relatives don't bother now a days so you know what I mean :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense in this post today. If you have visited my blog before you would know I have reviewed another product from their range which I loved the review of which you can read HERE The brand is owned by  EM & EM personal care pvt Ltd. So there are many BB, CC and even DD creams now in the market which most of us do own but this claims to be all in one so let me tell you my experience trying it. Please keep reading to know more about this product.....


Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

Price: Rs.799/- for 50g. Available online with discount HERE

Ingredients:




Brand description of the product:

Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review


Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

The product comes enclosed in a cardboard box packaging with all the necessary information on it. The cream comes in a white opaque bottle with a pump dispenser which is so good as I hate the ones which come with a wide mouth and wastes product.The product tends to accumulate near the cap which is the thing with pump packaging but I think its normal and since the cap sits well it can be travel friendly as well.



The before and after pic after application of the product.I know I look sick please excuse that :)

The All in one cream comes in only one shade which is a bummer but then most of the other brands have one shade too which blends and adapts to one's skin type. Ok so I have fair to medium skin tone and this shade suited me. The cream is thick and needs to be blended well. The face looks dewy post application which is a bad thing for oily skin people like me hence setting it with a powder will be a must. The coverage is light and does not hide any blemishes or pimples etc. The shade may be a misfit for deeper skin tones in my opinion.It blends well into the skin however makes my skin greasy and is not photo friendly as well. Overall I think that it can be good for those who have less problematic skin and someone who does not require lot of coverage.It can be used as a daily all in one cream by those who have dry skin. The price point is quite high which I did not like as it is does not even give medium coverage.Overall it is an okay product and will suit dry skin women in my opinion.

MLWM Rating: 3.5/5

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review

Hello everyone,
Today I bring to you a product from the brand Coccoon which is owned by company - EM & EM PVT LTD. I don't know how many times I have stressed about the fact that skincare is very important and you will only know why I say this is when you cross the big 30 which I have already . Back then in my teenage days we never had blogs and YouTube channels to tell us about this but now things are different although I see some girl somewhere aged between 20 & 22 telling her audience to use anti aging cream.. Lol. The point I am making here is there is an age for everything and in my opinion once you hit 25 is when you should start. So coming to today's review it is a product which I have been using for a month and I am going to tell you what I feel about it. Read on to know more.....

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review



The serum has a nice floral and fruity type of scent.The consistency is quite light weight and gets absorbed easily into the skin. I have oily skin but with time I have noticed that only my T zone gets oily so I need some moisturization and a little bit extra before I go to bed so that the serum works its magic at night and repairs my skin. So I use at night like that is  when I am supposed to use it after washing my face clean. It is moisturizing in my opinion and imparts a glow to the skin the following morning. It will work for all skin types in my opinion as it did not break out my oily skin (at the moment).Also it is Non-Comedogenic hence it won't block your pores and cause you breakouts.It is supposed to contain Kakadu which is an ingredient that contains high levels of Vitamin C which is perfect for aging skin. Continuous usage of product will help reduce fine lines and show some effect on wrinkles and darkspots.Overall it is a great anti aging night serum to try in the affordable category do check it out ladies.

MLWM Rating:4.3/5

Sentida Bath & Body Works Soaps & Lip Balm - My overall thoughts

Hello everyone,
I hope you all are doing great in whichever part of the world you may be. In Mumbai the heat & humidity has just gone to the next well and sweating profusely is one thing we are facing right now.I am very particular about hygiene and make sure to use the bath & body products in order to keep myself fragrant, clean and germ free. If you have been reading my blog since last few years you would know that I have talked about innumerable bath & body products especially those who are new in the market. I also believe in supporting new brands in the making, if you don't believe me go check my posts on the blog. So today I present to you Sentida Bath & Body Works who sent me 3 of their products to test out and I will be sharing my thoughts on them.


Sentida Bath & Body Works 

Since the brand is new they don't have a website yet but you can find them easily on Facebook & Instagram. You can send them a message and they will be happy to assist you. The name behind the brand is Meghna Rodrigues and they are based in Mumbai. They deliver all over India.

They do make and sell the following items:
Handcrafted Soaps
Body Wash
Lip Balms
Moisturizers
Face Scrubs
Body Scrubs

Let me begin by telling  you about the soaps. So I received the following ones:
Sentida Peppermint Soap
Price: Rs.300/- for 100 -110  gm (as they are handcut)
Shelf life: 2 years


Sentida Bath & Body Works Soap Review

Sentida Bath & Body Soap Review


This soap has green and blue marble kind of effect to it and looks appealing. It has a strong peppermint scent to it which I like. It lathers well on use and the smell is really calming and relaxing and leaves a cooling effect post use. The soap cleanses the skin well and does not make it dry which I like. Also one noteworthy thing I would say that this soap did not melt which is the case with most handmade soaps. In this sweltering heat this soap proved as a saviour to me so I highly recommend you guys to check it out.Also I am a big fan of  peppermint bath & body products☺


Sentida Chocolate Soap
Price: Rs.275/- for 100 -110  gm (as they are handcut)
Shelf life: 2 years


Sentida Bath & Body Works Soap  Review

Chocolate OMG! I doubt if there is anyone who dislikes chocolate and a chocolate soap. Now being very honest I have not tried it but will keep you informed on my Instagram, so do follow me there and check my feed and instasnap because I post regularly there. But I am pretty sure it would be amazing and  I can't wait to try it.

Both the soaps are handcrafted and  come wrapped in a clean film which is nice so that the aroma won't fade. Nothing is really mentioned on the soap just the brand name and the variant.I have tried many handmade soaps before and I would say overall these are really good and worth trying so do check them out.

MLWM Rating: 4.5/5

Sentida Moisturizing Lemon Lip Balm
Price: Rs.125/- for 7g
Shelf life: 2 years

The lip balm comes in a small container with a screw type lid. It has a faint lemon scent to it which won't stay on your lips for long. The consistency is light weight hence I would not  recommend it to be used over lipsticks or anything like that as it will move outside the lips. I generally prefer lip balms to be a little thick as that way they adhere to the lips for  longer period of time but I also know handmade lip balms are light in texture. The lip balm does keep the lips chap free but it won't work for those with extremely crusty & dry lips unless kept as an overnight treatment. So I would say that the lip balm is light weight and is good for everyday use and since it has no color can be used by men and women too.

My final thoughts:
In this huge market of natural bath & body brands Sentida Bath & Body Works is worth giving a try. I really loved the soaps and highly recommend you to give them a try. You can also gift them to family members , relatives & friends  since the festive season is approaching instead of sweets which is so cliche. So do check them out and let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

1m Intimate Cream Wash pH 3.5 by Ozone Ayurvedics Review

Hello ladies,
Today's post is dedicated to all the lovely ladies who read my blog because the product I am going to tell you about is for intimate hygiene. Before I started my blog 5 years back I had no clue what intimate washes were. I mean like saboon se hi dho dete..Lol ! What I meant to say is that we used soap to clean our private part and here I refer to the vagina. So over the years many brands have been stressing the importance of using Intimate washes to clean your vaginal area as it is made with ingredients safe for the most important part of a woman's body. As some of you may know that soaps do contain chemicals and may not be safe to use there and hence it is only necessary to use an intimate wash which helps to maintain the pH balance and also solves other issues related to vaginal infections etc. So today I am going to share my thoughts on 1m Intimate Cream Wash pH 3.5  by Ozone Ayurvedics which kind of stands apart from the other ones I have tried. Keep on reading to know my thoughts on it.





Price: Rs.138/-  for 100g product  You can buy it online HERE


Ingredients & Other information:





Key features/claims by the brand about the product:
To maintain the natural balance of the intimate area, you need a cleanser that has an ideal pH of 3.5*.

1m Intimate Cream Wash is enriched with Lactic Acid, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Tea Tree Oil to maintain the intimate area's natural acidic balance.

Reduces dryness, itchiness, soreness, burning, unpleasant odour and symptoms of private part discharge

It also restores the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus naturally found in the intimate area and significantly lowers your risk of private part infections


Packaging:
It comes in a white opaque tube with a flip cap which is amazing. There is no  product accumulation at the tube opening which I like. The ingredients and all the possible information you need to know about the product is printed at the back of the tube. It is definitely travel friendly in my opinion.




Coming to my experience trying the product - I have never tried a product like this before. It is thick like a cream and will not foam like the gel based ones but creates a little lather good enough to get the cleaning job done. As per their instruction you can apply it and leave it on the vaginal area or use it during your bath and wet the area apply it leave on 2 minutes and rinse it off which I do. After rinsing the product, it  comes off easily which I like. The smell is perfumey but amazing and the scent reminds of me of a luxury product I may have used in the past. One may argue about the scent but then how will it take the odour off from that area?? Makes sense right.





So vaginal discharge is a common problem for me and many other women I know. While some of it is normal, excessive can always be associated with any hormonal problem you may have and it is best to visit a gynecologist. So this wash does a good job of cleansing the area but does not make it dry even though I saw the ingredients has Cetosteryl Alcohol. But I have used it and I found no issue at all. I have been loving this wash and do recommend it to all my ladies fam who are reading my post. I do not blog about anything without testing and I can safely say that this product is worth using and a big thumbs up from me. And yes it is Cruelty free and vegan too so do try it ladies.

So what do you ladies think of this intimate wash and have you tried it yet?? Do let me know in the comments section.


MLWM Rating:4.5/5
