Here is something i do not have to think twice before declaring it as one of my holy grail products. The name is Mary Lou-manizer from theBalm Cosmetics. This products has been raved quite a lot by the beauty Gurus and my fellow bloggers and finally i bought this in January. I am writing this review after using it for the last 3 months on my Asian/Indian skin and i am happy to say that this is totally worth the hype. And the best thing is the price, it is really well-priced based on the quality and finish of this product. This products has been reviewed by bloggers/vloggers with fair and medium skin tones and works really nicely on all.
This product is one of my favorite highlighter and has no yellow or pink undertones. It is all glow, glow and glow with no heavy glitter or gold streaks. This highlighter is really pigmented, a tiny bit gives a fabulous glow and with the amount of product in the container, it lasts forever, so it is totally worth the price. Other thing i noticed is that this needs to be used carefully and with light hand until you get an idea of how it looks on your skin, because a little extra can look heavy.
I really like the packaging of this highlighter , it is super cute and has a large sturdy pan and a big mirror. And i have tried using it on the inner corner of my eyes and as a highlighter under my brow bone. It looks great even as an eye shadow, not glittery but shimmering.
As i couldn’t find it in the stores near my place in Canada and theBalmCosmetics site ships from US, so i would have to pay shipping and taxes. I finally got this from Amazon.

I think my search for a good moisturizer has ended here after finding this product. I have combination skin, which is dry from the t-zone, i know whomever i tell this, they say that’s strange. I heard about this moisturizer a lot and thought of trying it finally. I went to the Kiehl’s store in Square One mall and asked for a moisturizer that will suit my combination skin. its always better to ask for the product and get some more information instead of just going in the store and asking for the specific product. I had two options, either the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer or the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. I tried both of them, the cream had more thicker consistency than the moisturizer. Even though the moisturizer seemed a bit more of thicker consistency from the lotions(any fluid body lotion).
Here i had to decide myself if i wanted the moisturizer or the cream, both had good reviews and almost the same ingredients. I decided to buy the Moisturizer, just that i was more inclined towards it. I have been using it since the last two weeks and it is just perfect for my combination skin. For first few days, i used it morning and night, maybe i was obsessed with the way it make my skin look and feel. Now, i am back to my routine to using it in the morning and then cleansing off my face before bed, i know it sounds lazy but i have many excuses at this time and the big one is that i am Pregnant.
This product has made my skin look moisturized and healthy, it absorbs readily into the skin and i do not have to rub a lot, it hasn’t caused any breakouts to my skin. It is fragrance free and sometimes make me think of Clinique dramatically different moisturizer. I have used it under my foundation too, without a primer and it looks okay, no issues with that. I do not get a dry feeling or oily feeling on my face, just soft and moisturized all day long.
Hello everyone, i hope you all are doing great and having a nice Easter time. I have been pretty busy and tired this past long weekend. I had guests come over my place and i was making some Indian food, pictures below, the whole morning which made my back very sore.
This is the Beans and Potato dish made with beans, potatoes, onion, tomato, garlic and ginger and some indian herbs. This is really nutritious and the best thing is my little one loves it.
And this is the mixture of split green gram and split red gram. It is really light and healthy for all ages, especially for younger ones. In India, people started to give this as a soup to babies around 7-8 months. And this is a healthy option as a soup or to be had with a Naan/Roti. And my little one loves this with rice.
I have been trying to keep up with the pace to writing regular posts and sharing my experiences and reviews of the products i am using these days. Please subscribe to my blog and let me know how you like my posts. Your suggestions and comments are genuinely appreciated.
