Bodyshops Almond hand & nail overnight manicure butter is a winter handcare MUST-HAVE it works overnight to keep your hands smooth, wrinkle free and hydrated. It absorbs really quickly so if you’re someone who is into non-sticky non buttery creams, this is the one for you. Body shops butters usually have a very strong scent to it, some that get unbearable but this one doesn’t, its scent is pretty refreshing and mild compared to the other products. Since its a butter in a jar form, it goes a long way so it’s worth the investment.

Elmore Glycerine cream is a non greasy Chamomile extract cream which literally makes your hand and feet feel like butter. We can’t emphasize enough on how smooth, soft and hydrated they make your hand and feet feel if you leave it on overnight. We’re aware that when you think of a glycerine cream you imagine a very greasy and sticky texture but this cream is the exact opposite, as the jar claims that it is non greasy, it actually is and it absorbs really quickly aswell. Trust us with this one since this is our third purchase already, which makes us realize that it tends to run out a little quickly.

‘Body butter is a skin moisturizer that typically contains cocoa butter , shea butter , coconut oil or another vegetable-based oil. It’s thicker than lotions and is extra effective at rejuvenating dry skin, whether used all over or only on problem patches, such as elbows and knees’ As defined by Google.

Now this dry and chilly weather calls for something more than lotions for skin. Lotions are water based that can be good for oily skin at times but not in winters. Your skin needs something more luxurious and moisturizing. This body shop Almond Milk and Honey is the best option we have come across.

Claims to 48hrs intense moisture for sensitive and dry skin and it actually does deliver. The good part is the scent, unlikely to other body butters it does not have a fruity smell unlike most of bodyshop’s body butters. It’s a 10/10 for us.

What is your favorite body butter/hand cream during the winters? Let us know below!

Top 5 underrated drugstore Blushes

Blushers are a total MUST HAVE when it comes to makeup, since they’re the ones that sculpt and enhance your face, and make it younger looking!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you the blushes I use to give my face a healthier look!

1. L’oreal Paris True Match Blush;

12734204_10153910313970350_1556809213256870106_n

L’oreal Paris True Match Blush is my absolute favorite. I was never a fan of shimmery blushes but this 165 Rosy Cheeks blush gives such a smooth and blended look to your face, it literally makes your cheeks glow with the perfect touch of pink! It comes with a little brush for better appliance and has a tad bit of a creamy texture to it.

I’ve never really smelled blushes but for some odd reason, I smelled this one and it smells like a delicious candy!

2. Essence Blush up!12745955_10153910313700350_7215156883869683110_n-1

This multi color blush is literally my go to blush when I need a combined mixture of a little bit of orange and a little bit of pink on my cheeks. It gives a pretty smooth and matte look which looks quite natural. I use it in the shade 10 Heat Wave, as I love how I can go from a natural to an intense look by just applying less or more of it!


3. Body Shops Lip & Cheek Dome

Body Shop’s Crazy for Coral lip & cheek dome is the ultimate dome for a completely natural look and the plus thing about this one is that you can match it with your lips as well! It’s in a creamy form and literally glides on your skin. You don’t even need a brush for this one; you can apply it directly by rotating it on the middle of your cheek and then sliding it to the highest point of your cheek bone.

4. Luscious Powder Blush
12743540_10153910313385350_3943682947256159083_n

Another of my favorite blushes! I use the luscious powder blush in 027 Coral Glow when I need an intense look and it always seems to do the work. It enhances and defines your face and doesn’t even cost much!

5. DmGm’s Cheek Blush

12705173_10153910313160350_2154531022229989481_n12741910_10153910313300350_2645764533266922157_n

I use the DmGm uminous touch cheek blusher in 02 Bronze Pink & 07 Coral Passion. The bronze pink has a more of a shimmery feel to it compared to the coral passion one, as it is a little on the matte side. However, both of the blushes will highlight your cheeks and will leave a natural, flushed look!

I believe all of these blushes go with different occasions and all work great! Try them out for yourself and feel free to write to me for questions!

 


MOTD –

So, a lot of people who follow me on my Instagram have been asking me for the products I used to get the look I recently tried on for a wedding!

And here are the products I used to get this look!

And here are the products I used to get this look!

Firstly, I primed my face with The body Shops ‘All-In-One Instablur’ Primer as it is absolutely amazing and it helps in reducing the appearance of the pores and hides blemishes. Then I applied my very favorite Maybelline’s Dream Nude foundation in 010 Ivory.

After priming and applying this light foundation on my face I went on with doing my eye makeup, I started off by applying brown shades on the middle and the outer crease of my eyelids, then I went in with the black eye shadow and applied it on the eyelid and merged it with the browns on the crease. I applied a white eye shadow on the inner crease and the brow bone. I completed the look by gluing a pair of falsies on.

After completing the eye makeup, I applied another layer of foundation, I used the maybelline’s fit me foundation this time and then concealed my dark circles with La girls concealer. I contoured my face with La girls concealer in toast and applied Rimmel’s bronzer on top of it, I used loreal’s blush on for the cheeks and loreal’s glittery nude eye shadow on the cheek bones and the bridge of my nose for highlighting. I used luscious eyebrow kit for my brows!
