Product review:​ $7 Target Beauty Box

Yes, I got 8 items and $9 in coupons from Target Beauty Box, Be you(tiful) for only $7. I am little skeptical about beauty boxes, I have read some good reviews on some of the very popular monthly beauty subscriptions, but never really tried one. When I saw these Target beauty box at our local Target store, I could not resist myself. Target has my favorite drugstore brands and some of the popular high-end products, they have some brands from UK and Korea also. It’s a good mix of brands and I get a nice wide variety to choose from. In this beauty box, I got the products which I never tried before, these products can be quite useful for my daily skincare routine. I got two full-size products, one sample of beauty vitamin, one shampoo, and one conditioner in travel size, makeup remover eye pads, one cleanser and one moisturizer in sample sizes, and I got total $9 coupons on the full sizes of these products.

Olly beauty Gummy’s with biotin, borage oil, and antioxidants. I haven’t tried it yet, don’t know if I can notice any difference by one capsule though. But I like the Simple Miscellar makeup remover eye pads, the packet contains 30 pads, it is very soothing for the sensitive eye area.

This cream by Honest Beauty contains Daikon Radish Seed oil and other herbal extracts. I have combination to dry skin, and I am always looking for products which can take care of dryness. It is a nice, smooth cream, a good enough light summer moisturizer for me.

This is a clay-to-mousse charcoal cleanser by Loreal. It is a good one, gives me a clean look after cleansing.

Keraphix shampoo and conditioner by Nexxus, it contains collagen and amino acids which can treat damaged hair. I can see the difference, this combination definitely smoothed my hair after just one washing.

It’s a nice minty spring- summer color by Sinful Nail Colour

This e.l.f. Lip Tint in the Perfect Pink shade and it is also a full size. It gives my lip a very natural pink tint. It moisture my lips so nicely that I am replacing it with my lip balm.

So overall an exceptional value for money. Go try!

Be gorgeous and Happy Blogging.

Around the park

We like to go to the park, especially our kids like to go there, and I get a chance to just enjoy the time without worrying about the mess. Sunday afternoon is the most heightened time when my kids are in the disastrous mode. After the heavy Sunday lunch, when I and husband are all set for our most desirable Sunday nap, some extraterrestrial superpower got into our kids’ blood steam. They got supercharged and started doing all the naughtiness. All my magazines were spreading on the floor, the showpieces have been split into halves, cushions were used to make the imaginary fort. The little chair climber dropped every little thing from my kitchen platforms and when we saw that my elder one started doing science experimentation with food, we canceled our much needed afternoon nap and headed to the park.

As spring is here, afternoon stroll in the park is quite a relaxing one. Last Sunday we went to a park. The park is very beautiful, a lot of kids were playing and their parents were watching them from the bench. I saw parents faces and could identify their reasons behind the park visits. Those poor souls were as tired as I was. They were also relaxing while watching their kids. I got a job there too, as my husband was busy to look after our kids, my job was to look after the stroller. After spending some time in the park, I felt that I have become the sole protector of the stroller, not only it is a must needed baby gear, it also carried the jackets, water bottles, snacks and most importantly diaper bag, which can’t get lost. The rest of the afternoon went very well, there, for some time I also enjoyed with my kids, as they were jumping, running, giggling around.

The job of a parent is definitely a tough one, one has to be more patience, responsible, had to give up time for the little ones, it’s a 24/7 tiring job. But when I remember my childhood, I could see myself playing in the local park and running, sliding, bouncing with my friends, I could felt that little park time made me so happy. Then I realized it, even I have to settle down with my priorities, its worth it. Childhood is the most precious time we have in our life, and as a parent, it’s our privilege to nurture it.

Spring-summer finds from IKEA

I love to go to Ikea for shopping, my kids love their meatballs and deserts and my elder one is always interested in the play area. I like their seasonal stuff, as well as their space-saving types of furniture. Last Sunday we visited local Ikea store to find some new fresh looks for our home and bingo we got what we have wanted.

There was some special display on the sustainable materials, I like the idea, we need more environment-friendly products around us. But what I really like about these eco-friendly materials is that they are mostly from India.

I am quite familiar with these materials, those can be easily found in Indian villages. The whole Ikea looks like a greenhouse.

There are lots of options to choose from the artificial green indoor and outdoor plants, colorful floral decor, beautifully printed curtains to eco- friendly products.

It was so refreshing in there that I wanted to redo my entire home. I got some really nice deal though. Now, I am excited to place those around my house and be ready for the summer entertainments.

Hope you like my spring- summer finds. Share your favorite finds for this season.

10 Must Have Clinique Products In 2018

We all like to pamper our skin and a healthy skin surely looks flawless and glows even without makeup. Clinique is one of the famous company which has established their expertise in makeup and skincare with years of remarkable results. Clinique’s dermatologists are continuing their work of inventing and researching products in beautifying our skin and looks.

10. Travel size trio– This set is great for travel, I don’t need to pack a lot for the short trips and I can easily carry it in my weekender bags.Cleansing, toning and moisturizing, skin care will not be neglected with this set.

9. Clinique clarifying lotion– I have a dry-combination skin type, so, harsh toner makes my skin drier. My skin just loves this toner, great for all seasons.  I like to apply it in the night after cleansing my face. Sometimes I use it in the morning and before applying makeup. It helps to open up the pores and give me a fresh feel.

8. Correcting Foundation with SPF– This is a great foundation for the summer.This is a light to medium coverage foundation. Not the best product for concealing, it’s on the lighter side.Especially in the summer, before going to the beach I used it, Just to get a little color on my face.It blends really well and gives a smooth skin finish.

3. Clinique Take The Day Off,Makeup Remover-I am really picky one when to choose a makeup remover.There are so many makeups removing products are available in the market, it’s sometimes getting hard to choose which one will be the best for me. I don’t like the greasiness some of the makeup removers has, and some of them even dry out my skin.Then I came across with this Clinique product, it’s a bit pricey one for a makeup remover, but surely it does the job done and left no residue afterward.A big thumbs up for this one.
