My Skincare Routine | PM

Welcome to part two of my skincare routine, all about night time! Introduction about my skin type and morning skincare routine are all in this post. My pre-blogging self would be scoffing at this routine. From foam cleanser + Nivea + Vaseline, this is what it's come to! The first part of my night time routine is basically cleansing and toning. I very much prefer using cleansing oils and balms/milk/cream variants. Another addition that I previously did not use is an exfoliating toner. It's really helped with keeping the PH of my skin more acidic. I…Read more
Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

I love cleansing oils! It's a cleanser and makeup remover in one and it works brilliantly. For the longest time I was using the Origins Clean Energy Gentle Cleansing Oil and I eventually wanted to try something different. I had heard a lot of praises about the Shu Uemura one and decided to get it. While this was an expensive purchase, it's lasted me for so long and it's just the perfect cleansing oil. Before I review, I have to apologize for the appalling photos in this post. I'd already used up and thrown away…Read more
What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

On my review posts I'm always talking about how travel friendly products are etc. Since I spent the better half of last month doing just that, I thought I'd do a 'What's in my purse' instead of the usual monthly favorites! Let's dig in! I mainly carried 3 bags. The red one with two transparent sides was for keeping makeup. I kept the products on one side and the brushes on the other. The pink one was also kept in my luggage and it contained skincare stuff, perfume etc. And lastly, the gorgeous…Read more
Bioderma Sensibio H2O

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

I first heard about this product on Lisa Eldridge's skincare video and my hunt for a water based makeup remover started there. In general, up until last year I was using the usual oil and water combo makeup removers. But I hated that oily residue that was left behind, I always had to wash my face after using even a tiny bit. It became only worse when it came to correcting makeup, that little area of oiliness left behind. I think Caudalie's Cleansing Water was the first water based one I tried. I…Read more
My Skincare Routine

My Skincare Routine

Updated Skincare Routine here Hello all! Hope you are having a great weekend! I thought I'd do a post on my skincare routine. For the longest time I didn't have any specific routine but reading other beauty blogs changed that! ;) Some of the steps I tend to skip on some days depending on how my day has been. So if it's a lazy Sunday and I haven't been out, I just wash my face and put on face cream. A few of the things like serums and masks I tend to use…Read more

Caudalie Cleansing Water

Caudalie Cleansing Water

I'm having a lovely cup of tea and the weather outside is just perfect. Sometimes all you want is a refreshing beverage, a nice candle and something to focus on. It's been a productive Sunday so far! Anyway, today I'll be reviewing a water based make up remover. Yes, one of those. Before I start, I should mention that the packaging of this product might have changed. When I was looking for links to buy this I saw a different one. So the product might be the same but the packaging and labelling…Read more
