For people living in Kolkata, this summer is by far the worst summer we have faced and we are already struggling too much with these tans. We cannot recognize our own hands and feet once we step out in the sun. Not only is the scorching heat tanning our bodies, it is also feeding our pimples (which I think is worse).
I have come up with 5 must have things this summer to keep away the tan and the pimples and also the increasing pollution.
1) Aroma Magic White Tea & Chamomile Face Wash: This is the best face wash I have used till date. One can hardly find such a magical face wash at this price. Also, many of us are accustomed with the brand so we can kind of get a personal 'brand-guarantee'. Plus it does not cost much! After using this, you can see a visible glow on your face and I feel like it washes away all the tiredness too from the face. You can find it on Nykaa as well as other local cosmetics store. If you are purchasing from Nykaa, look for discounts as the local stores generally offer a 20% discount.
Pocket Pinch: Rs. 170/-
2) Plum Chamomile and White Tea Glow Getter Face Mask: I purchased this after reading the reviews and I must say the reviews are all just perfect. I have a combination skin, with oil dripping from my T-zone and my cheeks even more dry than the Thar. This face mask helped me restore the oil balance of my skin and gives an instant glow to my face. It is better to use it 1 or 2 hours before the make-up session if you have a party to attend. Also, if you are buying this, don't use it daily as it will dry up your skin.
Pocket Pinch: Rs. 490/-
3) Orgera Herbal Facial Toner Kasmiri Saffron with Rose Water: I came across this on Nykaa while looking for Rose Water. I have been using it for a few days, twice a day and this toner brings a never seen before glow on my face. I was really amazed at what this product can do at such an affordable price. Though the best part for me is the spray bottle which it comes in. Just spray it on your face and you are good to go!
Pocket Pinch: Rs. 190/-
4) The Face Shop Face Masks: These face masks are cheap, easy to use and travel friendly. Using these face masks daily for 3-4 days can save you a parlour visit. Just put them on your face for 20 minutes, gently massage the liquid on your face after removing the mask and leave it over night. You will be good to go. If you are purchasing them form Nykaa, it's best to look out for offers; you can find offers like 'Buy 7 Get 7 Free' and such offers are 'ooh-la-la'!
Pocket Pinch: Rs. 100/-
5) Nivea Whitening Smooth Skin Deodorant Roll On: For the ones who sweat a lot, trust me, this product is a life-saver! It controls you underarm sweat and prevents the bad odours. I am not quite sure about the whitening part as I have not yet seen any visible results (I have been using it for a month now) and also about the fragrance. It surely does have mild fragrance but it does not last long, at least not on me. But if you sweat immensely, you can surely go for this, make sure to top it of with a perfume to keep yourselves sweet-smelling all through the day.
Pocket Pinch: Rs. 90/- (25 ml), Rs. 185/- (50 ml)
Keep these products handy and you are good to go! :)
