REVIEW AND SWATCHES OF TBC BY NATURE POWER MAGIC PEELING GEL SCRUB




Hey everyone,

It is not now that I am working with TBC BY NATURE, it is being months over that I am using and loving this brand's product.
So, when TBC BY NATURE people contact me again to try out their new launched TBC BY NATURE POWER MAGIC PEELING GEL SCRUB, I immediately said yes to them. And yes, this product is not tested on animals so a big thumbs up for cruelty free product :)

TBC BY NATURE is a brand, that has some really good skincare products at an affordable price. I have already reviewed their TBC BY NATURE BODY LOTION & MOISTURE CREAM here  which my husband loves a lot and so do me. So, every time I get something new to try from them I get excited.

A little info about TBC BY NATURE POWER MAGIC PEELING GEL SCRUB by the brand itself:-

 
"After nasty winter finally, summer is about to come and most of us are worried about Tanning, dust, and pollution which causes damage and form layers of dead skin cells on your skin. At that moment when you look into the mirror and spot your skin turning dull and flaky, that means this is the time to apply some exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells and hidden impurities from your face. Keeping in mind all your concerns TBC by nature introduces their New Signature Series’s product Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub for all skin type. It removes impurities from your skin instantly.

Exfoliating your skin remains a vital part of the cleansing routine and natural and alcohol-free products are the best to give to the gentle and supple skin.

"

Price: - Rs. 350 for 100g

Availability:- All leading departmental store across India.

Packaging:-

 
TBC BY NATURE POWER MAGIC PEELING GEL SCRUB comes in a tube like packaging with a flip cap opening. The packaging is leak proof and travels friendly too. The nozzle helps to control the amount of scrub that you need for single use. The gel has a mild floral fragrance which I just love to smell.

My experience:-


TBC BY NATURE POWER MAGIC PEELING GEL SCRUB is a peeling scrub gel that is suggested to apply on dry skin, gently massage in circular motion to exfoliate and then rinse off. The brand claims that the product contains enzymes of pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase which are multifunctional.I can't talk about this scientific claim as I am a common person like you who love to try a new product and so I think it might suits differently on different people [so don't blame me if it doesn't suit you :) ]. 


All I experienced is first, it requires a very small amount to cover my entire face to scrub. Secondly, the presence of minute white particles in peeling gel scrub actually exfoliates my skin gently. I have sensitive skin so anything breaks me out easily but I am little surprised seeing that this peeling gel scrub doesn't break me out. In fact, after every single use, I feel there is slight lighten up of my skin which means it removes the dead cell effectively. The peeling gel scrub is suggested to use three times in a week which I will only recommend drying skin beauties as for normal and oily skin beauties once or twice in a week is enough. 


Overall I am loving this peeling gel scrub because although it is a scrub but it is gentle on my oily skin and I am loving the effect of it after every single use.

Although it is a PR sample, and when it is PR I became double conscious and ready to judge any product more finely as many people rely on my reviews blindly and so this time I am little surprised to see that I couldn't find any single negative point regarding this product and that's why I can say that "yes it is a one PR sample skin care product which I will recommend to everyone to try at least once".

Hope you find this post helpful. Until next time...Stay beautiful.

Few more words:-

The brand JUVIA'S PLACE came into limelight mostly after they launch of their JUVIA'S PLACE MASQUERADE PALETTE. It is a limited edition palette (as per declared by the brand). The whole Instagram world of makeup was going gaga over this colorful palette after it launched on the website. The swatches, the feedback regarding the palette by foreign bloggers draws my attention towards this brand.In fact, I was unaware about this brand before until they launch this beautiful palette. The palette comes in two sizes. One is the big and other is the mini version of same. This mini palette is sold by many Instagram sellers in India. The price range of mini one is Rs.2700-2900/- approximately whereas for big one they do charge of Rs.3100-3300/- approximately.

Packaging:-

The palette comes in a beautiful pink packaging. The African figure over the pink cardboard and on the top of the palette gives a tribal feeling while seeing the palette. The palette comes in a strong cardboard packaging that has a magnetic closure. The mini version of the palette is quite a big one and it will last long whereas the big one looks like the oversized palette and it will last forever. I wanted to grab the big one but as it was out of stock from everywhere so I grab the mini one. The packaging of the palette is colorful yet sturdy one.

My experience:-

This is the first palette I bought from this brand JUVIA'S PLACE. The swatches of the eye shadows in this palette was looking so pigmented and colorful and beautiful that I was badly tempting for it. So I bought this mini version of JUVIA'S PLACE MASQUERADE PALETTE from Instagram seller Beautyshop_India at Rs. 2730/- approximately.

The palette has sixteen eye shadows which are a perfect mixture of both bold and neutrals, shimmer and matte shades.  The texture of the eye shadows is soft. Both the shimmery and matte shades have awesome pigmentation. There is slight fallout in matte shades but shimmery shade has no fallout. The matte shades blend like butter while shimmery shades work best if use with wet brush or fingers. The main attraction of this palette are those blues, purple and pink that can be used to create different smokey eye looks. Overall I am loving this palette so much that it is my current go-to palette whenever I plan to do some colorful looks.

So here the swatches of the palette along with an eye makeup look that I created using this palette only.


















Until then stay healthy and beautiful.

Love Sammy :*

REVIEW AND SWATCHES OF KIKO MILANO MATTE 4 YOU COLLECTION




Hey everyone,

Today I am up with reviews and swatches of KIKO MILANO MATTE 4 YOU COLLECTION.

The collection is a limited edition collection and it was launched just before valentine day of 2017. The collection consists of two eyeshadow stick, two matte nail paints, five beautiful heart lipstick, one blush duo and a heart shape matte 4 you brush.

The collection was very small but was just appropriate for the upcoming valentine.

I picked up two lipsticks, one blush duo and the heart shape brush from the entire collection.


Price: -

  • HEART SHAPED LIPSTICKS ARE RS.800/- EACH.
  • BLUSH DUO IS RS.1150/-.
  • HEART SHAPE BRUSH IS RS.1500/-

 Availability:-  KIKO STORES.

Packaging:-

All the products come in a beautiful white box packaging with a heart shape cut out on top of the box. The sneak peek of that red paper from the heart cutout in the cardboard box makes the collection appropriate for gifting someone you love. The product was wrapped beautifully with a red paper which after removing it you can see a silver gray metallic matte packaging of this collection. There are few lines of love quotes are printed on top of the cardboard box and on the product case. Overall I can give 5 out 5 for the packaging being so exclusive compare the price.


My experience:-

Lipsticks:-


From the five beautiful shades of lipsticks in this collection, I picked up two pretty shade. One is 02 and another is 03. 02 is a beautiful magenta kind of pink whereas 03 is a perfect red shade. Both the lipstick is the heart shaped lipstick that looks really matte in the tube. Both the color are versatile shade and it will suit everyone. The pigmentation of these lipsticks is worth mentioning as one or two swipe is just enough to get an opaque coverage. The lipsticks are matte in texture but still, these are non-drying on lips. They glide super smoothly even on my chapped lips without tugging or pulling my lips. The lipsticks give an even coverage to the entire lips and it doesn't look patchy on dry lips too. The lipsticks are long staying one. on my lips, they survive 5 hours with small snacks. The darker shade survives a little more than the lighter one. 02 shade stays pretty 5 hours on my lips whereas the red one(03) stays 7 hours intact on my lips. These lipsticks can survive heavy meal with slight fading which is quite obvious with any lipstick of any brand so this point can be ignored. Overall I am loving the lipsticks so much.


Blush Duo:-

In this entire MATTE 4 YOU collection of KIKO MILANO there is only one blush duo that launched is named  "01 loving pink flame". It is a blush duo. The blush is a beautifully designed one. Inside the blush, the base is a coral pink in which there is are two heart shape design. One of the heart is a little dark pink shade while on another side there is a lavender pink small heart shape shade. The blush when mix together gives a beautiful matte pink color on the cheek. I personally love the blush as it suits my NC 30 skin perfectly but if you ask through a blogger's eye then I must say it is just appropriate for fair skin beauties only as a little dusky skin beauties might found it washes them out. The blush when swatched with a finger I can feel the buttery texture of it. On my skin, it is super blendable one which gives a very natural pink color on my skin tone. So I personally love the blush but I will not say it is a versatile one, I wish Kiko had launched few darker shades of blush in this collection keeping our Indian skin tone in mind.


Matte 4 you brush:-

Lastly coming to the Matte 4 your brush in this collection. The brush body is really sturdy and it has duo color bristles. The brush bristles are designed as a combo of red and white heart shape. It actually makes the brush exclusive. The brush is really dense and soft and they are smooth on skin too. The bristles are so soft that they usually blend my blush like butter. The brush picks up enough product at one go which is a bit problem if you are using any highly pigmented product. Secondly, as the bristles are red and white combo so the white part catches the color of the product easily and it is really hard to bring it back to the old white color brush.

So, that concludes my entire review over KIKO MILANO MATTE 4 YOU.































That's all for today, until next time...Love Sammy :*
