Writing a haul is a task! so here goes the second one. The products in this haul are miscellaneous kind, it will include some skin care, hair care and my current favorite lip shades. Here we go again!
First lip shades! I am only an oxblood, brown and neutral lip shades kinda girl now. Though I like to wear pink, coral and red sometimes. I have been wearing following lip shades for my blogs lately. They are mostly matte, be it creamy, velvet or extreme, I loooove them all!
Make up products are done, coming to a different category, this will include skin and hair care mainly.
St. Ives green tea scrub: The brand is quite popular in bath and body products. Green tea in general is really good for detoxifying and cleansing our body. I bought it because it contains salicylic acid, which is really good for acne. It clears blackheads and calms redness.
Sulwhasoo clarifying mask: My love for Korean beauty products started back in 2011, on my trip to South Korea. They have really amazing brands and some of them which I love are The Face Shop, Skin Food and Missha. This time I am trying a new Korean brand Sulwhasoo, it is expensive (I will not deny that) as compared to other brands that I used. But since my husband travels a lot for work, I get many products on comparatively lower prices (yayy!). This is a clarifying peel off mask made of traditional Korean herbs, Japanese honeysuckle etc. It helps removing dead skin and gives brighter skin tone. I love how fresh my skin looked after using it, but yeah long term use is essential for more benefit.
Bath Sea salt: This is a Japanese bath sea salt, the reason I use sea salt is to get rid of ingrown hair on my legs. I usually use it while bathing, regular scrubbing helps to reduce ingrown hair. You can go for sea salt scrub of any brand.
Essential oils: They have undeniably so many benefits. I use Argan oil at night before sleeping, under and around my eyes, it contains vitamin E and has anti aging properties. Also, it can be used to tame hair frizz, so keep it handy in your purse and use it any time. Lavender oil, I use few drops of it basically to massage my hair in combination with hot coconut oil. It relaxes and promotes hair growth. It beneficial in reducing dandruff. (Do apply a small amount on your skin before using to check if it irritates).
Fabindia hair pack: I love Fabindia products, this is a new product (for me)that I am using currently. It is herbal made of multani mitti, amla powder, shikakhai, bhringraj and neem. I used it as prescribed and it made my hair quite soft and shiny. It helps in hair growth, controlling dandruff and imparts natural shine to hair.
Seba med anti dandruff shampoo– Dandruff is a major problem in winters, I do suffer from it (gross confession!). I am currently using this shampoo and it claims 50% less dandruff in 14 days. Well, that is yet to be seen, but some improvement I have seen. My hair felt a bit rough after using it, I suggest proper oiling before application.
Kiko nail polish remover: Acetone free simple remover but it smells so good!
Facial Massager: This is a dupe, I just wanted to see whether such products work or not. It is like a small toy with 5 attachments, the speed of rotation is very less. I cannot really comment on this product right now. I am using it and somehow I feel that even my hands are capable of doing same job. May be expensive versions are better, can’t say!
Nail art dotting pen: Lastly, I suddenly have a new found love for nail art. So to begin with I bought these dotting tools. The simplest thing that I can do right now. Hope to master myself at putting dots on my nail (yes!).
That’s all for my haul now!
Again I will emphasize that the opinions here are as per my experience, if you have different experience from same products, do share! I will love to hear from you all.
Hope you liked last blog of 2016. See you in 2017!
Live & Love,
