My Beauty Guide: Charcoal is new black !

Our human bodies are naturally build to detox the bad and absorb the good. But now a days since pollution has increased so much, and chemicals are used in everything like food, beauty products, our bodies require extra effort to get rid of these toxins. If you r body is not detoxifying then you will see dark circles, dullness, patchy skin clearly on your face and body. Acne is one of most horrible symptom of this.

Best way around is to use face mask, almost once every week and leave your skin in shade for next 24hours. Now a days we have so many varieties  of mask available like clay mask, sheet mask, creamier formulae etc. Buy Now

Last week i bought a natural organic facemask from Neemli naturals. Its an organic product brand offering something we require most now a days and that is paraben free natural beauty products. One of their product is Activated charcoal Face Mask. Buy now

This anti-pollution, dirt magnet, pore refining and super cleansing ingredient is set to become one of the most trendy products of the beauty & skin industry!

Charcoal for the skin: Benefits?

Charcoal is one of nature’s most active and powerful ingredients. It is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. Used internally in medical science and given to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. Similarly for skin, Charcoal acts as a magnet, binding to the impurities, oil and dirt in your skin’s cells and drawing them out.

Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

  • Absorbs Toxins
  • Removes excess oil & dirt, so best for oily skin
  • Open the skin pores and remove impurities
  • Removes tanning and combat signs of ageing
  • Removes blackheads
  • Soothes and brightens the skin
  • Anti-bacterial properties
  • Helps to fight Acne and minimizes large pores

What is Activated Charcoal ?

Activated charcoal is an odorless and tasteless powder. Derived from coconut shells, peat or wood, it is processed through high temperature to increase its ability as an absorbent. When you apply it on your skin, it functions like a magnet to draw out all the sebum and toxins from your skin, making it refreshed and clean.

Neemli’s Acivated charcoal facemask is an great example of this, which delivers unrivaled benefits to the skin.

Fabindia’s range of personal care products includes soaps, shampoos, hair oils, moisturizers, body spray, face packs, hair conditioners & special skin care products.The products are very affordable and have a simple, convenient packaging.

Packaging:  FabIndia products are very well packed & reflect cuteness appeal of buying them. Both the products i bought comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a sprayer attached to it. The cap securing the area around the sprayer is tight and locks perfectly. The body of bottles display its ingredients and various info.

Fabindia Product

My Experience : 

Wild rose fragrance  products are new addition to Fabindia line of products. This is my favorite wild rose bath and body products till date. I do have very dry skin, so my utmost requirement from after bath products is nourishment and hydrating power, which this product serve well along with a lingering fragrance of wild rose. For best effects use it after bath. Its has a long lasting (5-6 hrs) fragrance. Skin friendly product wrt other harsh body sprays/deo. It has pale light pink color texture with lightweight quick absorbing formula. Perfect subtle rose smell which makes you feel amazing. The lotion keeps the skin hydrated for long without any need for re-application in the summers.

Pros :

  • Super light without any greasy feeling
  • Smells of roses
  • Affordable
  • Re-hydrating power
  • spill proof bottle, so easy to carry

Cons :

  • Light fragrance
  • Contains Parabens

Passion Fruit Body spray is also new addition to Fabindia family. The texture is watery with light pink color The staying power is moderate. Its a mist body spray ,but doesn’t control sweat. Best usage is after bath. It comes in a very cute & clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. Since its a spill proof and plastic packaging,its lightweight and travel-friendly. I can easily carry it anywhere with me.

 Pros

• Affordable
• Mild and pleasant fragrance

• revive the senses

Cons:

• fragrance can be lil more overpowering

Alchemist..changed my life !!

As per Wiki…The Alchemist is a novel by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho which was first published in 1988. Originally written in Portuguese, it has been translated into at least 69 languages as of December 2016.The Alchemist has now sold over 65 million copies – one of the best selling books in history.

Best line i remember from this book is :

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”

This book had an everlasting impression in my mind. It definitely motivates everyone,who is reading this book with his heart. The story is about a young man who wanders in pursuit of his dreams and how he achieves his destination unfazed by the fears and failures encountered. The book depicts that we should not consider our fears or failures as a menace.We should learn from them and move ahead of our hurdles. It clearly depicts that one who follows his passion and focus on their journey of dreams always reach its destination of success.This book is a full ocean of motivational quotes and must read for all who think, success is far from them !!

I can relate my life incidents with it and can visualize what i could have gained out of it.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro..My best phone till date

So after a long time, i decided to buy a new phone.Lot of discussions and reading, debates went on with my husband, to understand which phone will suit me the best !! Lastly we landed up considering a choice between Samsung C9 Pro and a google phone.

To basically understand , what a girl wants in her phone, is best camera. especially the front one for better Selfie’s…Yes i am a selfie freak 😛  . Second priority is to maintain 2 sim cards, again an issue for my existing phone. Thirdly, a lot of space….as in 128gb or 64gb to accomodate my pics, selfie’s, movies, songs, messages , apps (insta, Ola, Jugnoo , whatsapp, skype and many more)..Fourthly, my priority was the phone should look sexy..and not some box type. Last but not the least, battery should be there for atleast a day.

Now after knowing all this specification, there is one and only 1 choice. SAMSUNG GALAXY C9 Pro. It was launched recently and was available on online booking only. I got my phone booked and when it was delivered…omg i just loved it.It was nicely packed.I placed an order for black color and it turned out to be very nice.

phone review

In the low cost segments, many companies have good products launched in the market. I choose Samsung for some obvious needs of mine like

  1. 64 GB space
  2. 6gb Ram
  3. dual Nano-SIMs trays , and one for a microSD card
  4. matte-finished metal back and slick glass front
  5. 16 megapixel front and rear camera’s, along with LED flash
  6. fingerprint sensor
  7. 6-inch screen with 6.9mm thickness, giving it a sleek look
  8. 4000mAh battery, and quick charging is supported with a compatible charger

One news which i am still waiting is an update on its android version. Still, i am using this phone for last 1 month, and i m loving it. It has no Heating issues, very sleek to hold, fast charging within 20 mins. Selfies i take have a diff class all over 🙂 

Cost: 36,900

Will highly recommend this phone to all my friends 🙂
