For the love of Lip salves: Carmex and Chapstick in India!

Yes, Salves since I prefer them over tinted ones.

I am crazier than before and even more when I saw Carmex and Chapstick on an E-Commerce store.
So You want Carmex and Chapstick too?

Bombay Beauty Store, it is.

So here's what all I got.

Carmex Original Formula Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Chapstick Moisturizer, Where to buy Carmex and Chapstick in India

Carmex Original Formula
Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm
Chapstick Moisturizer

199 INR each.

I was too skeptic about paying online, since I had never shopped with them before. But then the experience turned out quite good.
I ordered on 27th December 2012 and recieved this morning. So I'm happy as long as the products are intact. The tubes and jar were perfectly sealed. =)
Chapstick is on my Lips right now *Big Grin*

Okay, so I am trying flavoured ones next. :D

P.S. I was not paid or commissioned to do this. This post is for all the Carmex and Chapstick lovers around :)

Maybelline Colorama in Absinto
Sheer Greenishly Mintish..ehh.

A Sad li'l Fond de Teint tale began with 'Once upon a time', no really It did.
I have had this Teint on my wl for over a year, maybe and I decided make it all mine this Lubbly December. The SA tried this on my wrist, and I tried on my jawline and it did look invisible.
And don't ask me how many times I have tried this on my wrist before. So I though it is THE shade for me, the Teint gives me jitters, I don't want that ghoshtly whitish face with shade lighter to my skintone. Okay I made a mistake of not trying the other shades.
And I bought it last week, for much excited I was, and tried it on my face a day before yesterday! 
BAM! I was all Orange. It was two shades darker. If only you could imagine the look on my face, not the orange one. The horrified, would-cry-now look.
I went at the counter and tried all the shades. And voila! 53 was it.

Moral of the tale: The lights in the Shopping complexes and Counters can be misleading.

About Romantaque:
Romantaque – Post Hair Removal Hair Minimizer is a hair growth inhibitor. As a precondition, after hair removal the skin has to be ‘normal and intact’ Recommended hair removal is by  TWEP approach (Tweezing,  Waxing, Epilation,  and Plucking). Hair should be pulled out from follicle, 24 hours in advance before Romantaque is applied for 10 days – twice a day. The nano-tech enabled active affects the hair follicle function, in terms of weakening in strength, lightening in color, reducing the speed of next hair . Repeated applications give a perceptible change, for the user – in reduced pain and lesser hair growth and density for a close observer like personal aesthetician as well.

Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup Review

Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup

Benefits of Pure and Clear Skin

  • Wash
  • Scrub
  • Pack
  • Oil Remover
  • Spot Remover

Total Face Cleanup Regime - in 5 minutes

 Apply the product to moistened face by smoothly massaging in upward circles focusing on forehead, nose & chin, avoiding the eye area.

Spread evenly across face & leave it on for 3-4 minutes.

Rinse off with Lukewarm water to get the perfect complexion.

My Experience with Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup:

Last week, I was at supermarket I was way to tempted to try this one but I resisted but then Jiya of Shopping Style and us reviewed this and I had to get this, reading good result it showed up on her.
So I finally laid my hands over it.
You can check her Experience here.
I tried on two types of Skin: Normal/Combination which is mine & Oily, my brother’s.

The Texture is neither Creamy nor Clay based but it is somewhat in between, It dense opaque white which looks opaque even on spreading. The scrub beads/particles are aqua blue in colour and very minute, not at all harsh like that of scrubs.
It does not foam but deep cleans leaving behind a squeaky  clean skin.
I followed the instruction as given on the packaging and use it as a scrub and pack.

And the result was:

  • Cleansed Skin.
  • Oil-free, Mattified
  • My Forehead, Cheeks and Nose was glowing!
  • Scrubbed effect.
  • Soft to touch

Price: 99 INR
Quantity: 50 ml
Shelf life: 30 months.

What I loved about Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup:

My Forehead, Nose and cheeks were Glowing. Oh boy! that rarely happens in winters, when my skin is tad dry.
I loved using this as Facepack than scrub. Okay both!
My Brother found the Fragrance refreshing.
And the skin feels and looks refreshed as well.
My Brother’s skin was super clean and bright! He’s dark and his skin looked mattified and bright.
Even though I’m wheatish  and I couldnot see any brightening effect on mine, Maybe it worked on his Tan.
Spending 5 minutes for a Cleanup? It’s all worth. It does give effect of an At-Home Cleanup, but not that of Salon cleanup ( Okay. I had been at Enrich for a Cleanup just once)

What I didn’t Love:

The Fragrance bothered me, it was like some salt fumes, like K2sno4 or whatever!
Yes it was like Bleach, I think. Or was it the paint fumes. ( I’m confused here)
Nothing else, really.

Final Verdict:
I loved this multipurpose product which you can use as Facewash, Mild scrub and Facepack, and it does provide an At-Home Cleanup effect, which exactly takes 30 minutes.
If you run with the second or minute hand: This is for you.
I’m letting this be on my shelf for instant cleanup or for days when I’m too lazy.
I loved this actually for the glow that it brings.
99 bucks aren’t much to try, Give it a try You’ll either Love it or Detest it! For sure.

I'm a turned impulse buyer

I never was until... I had to shop for stationery and I got lured with these all!
I wanted notebooks and post its, Pens and some crayons...for candles.
Now you don't want to see my stationery, do you?

And now, When I look at the retail therapy I'd this afternoon...

I honestly wanted to buy just Nivea Total cleanup but all the other were stray :P So I had to pick them up ;)

Reviews don't make me happy!
Trying does
-An impulse buyer, Idee. :P

I think I need a new vanity or atleast storage and ideas, lots of them. I'm out of space.
