Today is the last day of March and I thought it will be perfect to share my March favourites with you all. I’ve been trying out different products and 5 products which are close to my heart have made it to the March Favourites list.
1. Greenberry Organics 3 in 1 Mud Ash
This is the first product I tried from their range and I totally love this. This works a cleanser, scrub and a face mask. Sounds cool isn’t? It is packed with rich natural ingredients such as activated charcoal, tea tree oil, kaolin clay etc.
2. Incolor Matte Me Liquid Lipstick – 404
Incolor Matte Me lipstick in 404 has become one of my all time favourite lipsticks. It is the perfect red lipstick one could ever own. It lasts for a decent amount of time, comfortable on the lips and very affordable.
3. Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara
I’m quite literally head over heels for this mascara. I’ve never been a mascara girl and this product has changed me. It separates my lashes, makes them look longer and opens my hooded eyes.
4. SUGAR Tic Tac Toe Nail Laquer – Purple Prose
SUGAR Cosmetics is doing a great job with their new launches and their Tic Tac Toe nail lacquers are up to the expectations. Purple Prose is a rich purple shade and glides smoothly on the nails.
5. Oval Spoon Brush
I bought this oval spoon brush from Amazon and it has made my foundation application so much easier. It is dense and has soft bristles. It is perfect for blending and looks super cute.
If you know me, you’d know that I love nail polishes and try different colors. But I realized that I haven’t reviewed any nail color till now. So today I’ll be reviewing the shade called ‘Purple Prose’ from the newly launched nail lacquers by SUGAR Cosmetics named Tic Tac Toe. I love how SUGAR comes up with quirky names for their products and shades.
The nail lacquers come in a rectangular cardboard box with the usual SUGAR Girl flaunting her pink nails. The nail lacquer is sturdy and classy with a black cap. The cap is equally broad as the bottle which gives a better grip while applying.
Color & Texture
The shade ‘Purple Prose’ is a rich purple shade which would suit all skin tones. It is a bold and dark shade which is a perfect Winter shade. But I feel that if you love the color, seasons don’t matter! The texture is just perfect. It isn’t runny and goes opaque in one coat.
Poke a Friend. Scribble on sand. Shush a noisemaker. Like us, if you are someone who lets your fingers do the talking – then you will absolutely heart the new SUGAR Nail Lacquer range that will make sure that your tips are always in top shape! Specially-formulated to give you a 100% opaque finish that will dry before you can spell your date’s name – the SUGAR Tip TacToe Nail Lacquer’s wide range of glossies, mattes and shimmers is the zero-chip streak-free warpaint your hard-working fingers deserve.
Rs. 199 for 10 ml of product.
The SUGAR Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer range is available in 38 gorgeous shades across the Classic, Matte and Pro ranges. Its chip-free, streak-free formulation and specially-crafted ergonomic applicator will leave you smitten.
I have square nails and almost every nail color that I’ve tried needs at least 2 swipes to cover my entire nail. But this is the only nail lacquer that covers my entire nail in one swipe because, it has fluffy bristles. It has been 5 days since I applied it and it is as perfect as it was on the first day except for the fact that my nails have grown and the tip of my nails look prominent. I would highly recommend to you all if you are looking out for good quality nail colors.

Of late I’ve been into reviewing products and it has been a while since I shared my travel experience. So today I decided to share my travelogue to Udayagiri Fort which is one of the historical places in Kanyakumari district with you all.
Udayagiri Fort is located 14 km away from Nagercoil at Thuckalay town, Kanyakumari district, Tamil Nadu, India. It is on the Nagercoil – Thiruvananthapuram highway and was the most important military barracks of the Travancore rulers when they were ruling Kanyakumari district. This sounds like an extract from a History book. Isn’t? Well, I feel it is important to know about the rich history of the place before visiting it and it will change the whole experience.
Being a History lover and of course a nature lover, I was so excited about the visit. The entrance fee is Rs. 10 per person and additional Rs. 50 for camera. They have bicycle renting options which costs Rs. 20 for an hour. The fort is built in an area of about 90 acres and has the tombs of Dutch Admiral Eustachius De Lannoy – a Flemish naval commander of the Dutch East India Company, who later served as the Chief of the Travancore Army, his wife and son inside a partly ruined chapel.
As we entered, there were different trees and well maintained plants on both the sides that we could smell freshness in the air. On the right side is a pond which has peddling boats but unfortunately they were on repair when we visited.
Apart from the forest like atmosphere, the fort had a white squirrel which somersaults, geese that quack, peacocks that dance, rabbits who are timid and deer who are always eating (quite literally). Then we started walking through the passage which had beautiful and tall bamboo trees. I’m sure that kids would love this place as it also has a kid’s park with swings, see saws etc.
After a few steps, we reached the aquarium and the mini bird sanctuary which had a lot of variety of birds such as pigeons, finches, parrots, love birds etc. If you are an adventure lover, I’d recommend you to hire a bicycle as it would make the trek a lot easier. As we walked through the premises we found many monkeys on the trees and bum chums (not sure of its biological name) on the road. Please make sure that you walk carefully and don’t stamp them as every life on this Earth is valuable.
We finally reached the tombs of Dutch Admiral Eustachius De Lannoy who assisted King Marthanda Verma in rebuilding this fort, his wife and son. Our walk didn’t end there! On our way back, we walked through teak trees and more monkeys. There were few rope games which both adults and kids would enjoy. It was almost 5 pm and we saw groups of monkeys going back to their homes. They were quite friendly and it was fun to watch their activities. At the end of the walk, it was time for some calories – I mean ice cream. It was definitely a walk to remember and an experience to cherish.
Wedding season is right around the corner and if you are looking for a red matte lipstick that is comfortable on the lips, you’ve reached the right place. Liquid matte lipsticks are trending everywhere but not every matte lipstick is comfortable on the lips. Don’t you agree? But this Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream will change the scenario. I always believe that there is a red lipstick for everyone. This red matte lipstick will look gorgeous on almost everyone.
Incolor Matte Me lip cream is packed in a rectangular transparent plastic tube with a black cap. The transparent tube helps in identifying the color if you own more than one from the same range.
Price & Quantity
Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream in the shade no. 404 is priced at Rs. 245 for 6 ml of product.
Shade & Pigmentation
The shade no. 404 is the perfect red which I was searching for. It is more on the warmer side and looks rich. It is highly pigmented and would go opaque in one or two swipes. But multiple swipes can make the look messy.
This lip cream is transfer proof and would stay on your lips for more than 8 hours unless you have oily food. It starts to transfer after eating oily food. So I’d recommend that you dab the oil on the lips with a tissue and it wouldn’t transfer.
As matte lip creams are drying, I had exfoliated and moisturized my lips. Later I dabbed the excess lip balm from my lips before applying the lip cream and also applied just one layer. It was perfect! It was comfortable on my lips and lasted for a long time. This matte lip cream is light on the pocket yet looks like a high end product when applied. This lip cream didn’t transfer to my teeth, which most lip creams do. I would recommend them to you all and I’m sure that they would fetch you a lot of compliments.

Charcoal face masks rose to fame in a quick span of time as they act as a magnet which sucks impurities from the skin. While I was searching for a charcoal mask, I came across this product which is one of Amazon’s best seller and Instagram famous – Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face Care.
The product is packed in a tub with the name, description and ingredients mentioned on the side. When I saw the green, white and black combination of the packaging my mind had the following thoughts – green for organic, black for charcoal and white for the result – clean skin.
Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay, Glycerin, Aqua, Aloe Vera extracts, Activated Charcoal, Walnut Shell powder, Tea Tree Oil etc.
Price, Quantity & Shelf life
Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face Care is priced at Rs. 499 for 100 grams of product. It has a shelf life of 12 months but is recommended to use this before 6 months of opening.
Color & Consistency
The mud ash as its name says is in ash color and resembles cement. The consistency is thick and isn’t runny or wouldn’t drip which makes it easier to apply.
How many times have you come across a product that makes your skin go hallelujah with delight? Well, now is that savory moment. Do you also use the words “problem” and “skin” in the same sentence? It’s time that we change that with our 3 in 1 formula that has cleanser, scrubber and mask packed in one. The biggest WOW factor – use it daily as a cleanser, twice a week as a scrubber or right before the happening weekends as a mask and your skin will thank you every minute for this super pampering care.
(That was an awesome product description. Kudos to the writer and the team.)
I used this mud ash as a scrub and I found it to be very effective. It wasn’t harsh on my skin yet made my skin supple, clean and soft. I applied a thin layer as a face mask and left it to dry for a few minutes (Do not exceed 3 minutes!). After rinsing my face, I felt that my skin had become clearer and glowing as if I had applied highlighter on the high points of my face. My mom complimented me that my skin had become soft as a baby’s skin. It had definitely pulled off the dirt and other impurities from my skin without making my skin dry.
What makes this mask effective?
Charcoal – Sucks in all the dirt, dust thus de-polluting your skin.
Tea Tree Oil – Effectively removes any or all spots from skin.
Kaolin Clay – Removes all blemishes, pimples, spots.
Bentonite Clay – Reduces skin pores, heals & nourishes the skin.
Chamomile Extracts – Gets rid of acne causing bacteria.
Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face Care is definitely a cleanser, scrubber and mask in a jar of happiness. I would totally recommend this to you all.
NOTE: Time duration to use as a cleanser is 1 minute, scrub 2 minutes & mask 3 minutes. DO NOT EXCEED 3 MINUTES.

Today’s review is about a much raved product in the beauty industry. I’ve seen almost every beauty YouTuber I follow praise it so much that I finally decided to add it to my shopping cart. I’m talking about the Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect mascara (that’s quite a long name, isn’t?)
The outer packaging of the mascara is of cardboard with the product name, description, directions to use and cautions. The mascara is cutely packed as almost every Maybelline product.
Price & Quantity
The Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect mascara is priced at Rs. 500 for 9.5 ml of product. But I purchased it for Rs. 400 on Holi sale at Nykaa (that’s why I love SALE!)
The brush of the mascara is unique. The fanning brush has 10 layers of bristles to give the maximum fan effect to the lashes. It separates the lashes and makes them appear longer and fuller.
The mascara is highly pigmented as its name suggests – Blackest Black. I could see the difference in just one coat.
The mascara lasted the whole day until I washed my face. If you prefer waterproof mascaras, they’ve got one for you too.
The Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect mascara is an amazing product that can instantly widen your eyes and make your lashes lust worthy. You wouldn’t go back to your falsies when wearing this mascara. It is definitely worth the hype and I don’t regret my purchase. The only thing that bothers me is the price. It is comparatively costlier than the other Maybelline mascaras. I would totally recommend this to you all if you are hunting for good mascara.

Removing makeup is a must no matter how hard your day was or how tired you are. It is because, when you sleep with your makeup on, it clogs the pores resulting in breakouts and dull skin. Though there many makeup removers available in the market, I decided to make a natural makeup remover with just two ingredients. If you want to know how I made them, please keep on reading.
Directions to use
1. Pump a small amount of the makeup remover and massage your face with it.
2. Clean your face with cotton for easier and better results.
Apart from being an effective makeup remover, it is also beneficial for the skin, as
Aloe Vera soothes the skin and cures acne.
Glycerin is a wonderful skin moisturizer.

Hope you are all doing well. It is already March and Summer is around the corner. I feel like I was celebrating Christmas, New Year and suddenly its March. Do you feel the same too? If yes, welcome to the club. Today’s post is an ultimate Summer skin care guide.
1. Drink lots of water
I'm sure you've heard this a zillion times but I'm going to repeat this. Drinking lots of water helps in flushing out toxins and keeps your skin clear. Avoid caffeinated beverages and drink fresh fruit juices or tender coconut water instead.
2. Apply Sunscreen
Applying sunscreen regularly is a ritual that mustn’t be skipped especially during Summers. Choose a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30. Reapply the sunscreen if needed.
Exfoliating your skin two to three times a week will remove the dead cells that clog your pores. This makes your skin radiant and healthier. Always choose products with natural exfoliating grains.
4. Use a toner
A skin toner will close the pores of your skin and keep the skin cool. You can apply ice cubes before applying sunscreen or use rose water as a toner. This controls excessive sweating too.
5. No or less makeup
Makeup becomes messy during summer. So avoid heavy makeup and opt for a light makeup instead.
6. Moisturize your skin
You may feel tempted to skip on moisturizing your skin during Summer as your skin doesn’t get dry easily. Moisturizing your skin keeps your skin hydrated and supple during Summer.
7. Don’t skip your lip balm
Lips need protection from the harsh UV rays. So don’t forget to apply lip balm every day. Choose a lip balm with SPF.
I hope you found this post useful. Do leave your feedback on the comments section below.

Hope you are all doing well. I feel that a healthy skin care routine is important as it improves the skin and brings back its glow. I have always been fond of Korean sheet masks as they are easy to use and give immediate results. I recently stocked 5 sheet masks from Innisfree which is a renowned Korean skin care brand.
The sheet mask comes in an attractive and cute paper packaging as the usual Korean skin care products. It is travel friendly as it wouldn’t spill or get crumbled.
Price & Quantity
It is priced at Rs.100 per sheet mask which is 20 ml of product.
Innisfree sheet masks come in different variants and I purchased 5 of them.
Strawberry – For smooth & bright skin
Black Berry – For healthy skin
Pomegranate – For firm & supple skin
Rose – For smooth & radiant skin
Green Tea – For moisturized & dewy looking skin
How it works?
If you are wondering how these sheet masks work and why the world is going gaga over them, I’ve got the answer. A lot of normal skin care products evaporate when it is applied on the face and takes time to make a difference. But these sheet masks form a barrier and locks the ingredients in and prevents from evaporating. This is why sheet masks are different from normal masks and are considered magical.
I decided to try the strawberry mask first because I loved its packaging the most. The sheet mask was easy to apply and fitted my face well. It had holes for eyes, mouth and nose. The mask was cool and refreshing. I kept it for about 15 to 20 minutes and rinsed my face. It had made my skin clean, bright and nourished. I could feel the difference in my skin immediately. After two hours, my skin became more brighter.
