There is a new Masque in Town!

Staying at home the past couple of months has marked a shift in lot of things for us. Self-care has come to the forefront and something that we have started, not only indulging in but also specifically taking out the time for. Beside our health and mental well-being, we are focusing on skincare too. I definitely feel like I rediscovered skincare during this time. I have become more aware of what is actually effective on my skin, what exactly works and what does not. I have had a long skincare journey and my skin is at its best now because of a healthy lifestyle, good sleep cycle, lots of water, along with a lot of trial and error as well! Errors have been amended, and things that have been effective have become a regular in my skin care routine. 

As a part of trying new things, I laid my hands on the Dermafique Bio Cellulose masques, as recommended by a friend. Here is my honest and unbiased opinion about the masks. 

While using the Dermafique masques I realized, they fit better on the contours of my face, had higher efficacy because of high levels of concentration, don’t tear upon application (sheet masks are often fragile) and sheet masks are often synthetic and non-Bio Degradable, whereas these Bio Cellulose masks are made with Biodegradable Bio Cellulose Masques. 

Another important thing to note is that Bio Cellulose Masks are Made from 100% Natural Coconut Water which in itself helps supplement natural moisture and nutrients to the skin.

Talking about how to use the Cellulose Mask. Clean your Face, the mask comes in 3 layers one needs to detach the woven layer and place the mask on the face and then remove the Outer film. Then gently press mask on the face for a close fit. In my experience it fits well and once on your face you don’t have worry about the mask falling off. I go about doing my chores while the mask does its magic. Keep the mask on for about 30 mins and then gently rub remaining product onto the face.

Dermafique has 3 varieties in their Cell-by-Cell Bio Cellulose range – all three made from 100% Natural Coconut Water. The Charcoal Masque mask is for deep pore cleansing, helps unclogs pores and does make the skin feel cleaner and brighter. I did feel sneaky clean after using the mask and trust me that’s a great feeling when it comes to skin.

The Second Mask the Pore Tightening Masque that tones the skin. This mask detoxifies and purifies the skin making it look softer, smoother and firmer. Again, a decent mask and skin did feel a bit firmer after use. 

The Third Mask is the Tone Perfecting Masque. This mask is for reducing the appearance of blemishes and dark spot. After using this mask my skin definitely felt brighter.

A side note skincare is all about consistency and using right products. When I say I notice changes after using a product it means it was better than how my skin was before using the product. No Magic just effectiveness of the products, the magic is in consistency of using the products combined with healthy eating!

Will I buy these masks? 
Yes I will. Dermafique is one brand that has continuously innovated in the skincare category and these Bio Cellulose masques are just one stepping stone on their journey, that I enjoy being a part of! Let’s Get Masquing guys!

My 8 Hour Long Lasting ‘Fiama Scents’ Shower Gel

One of my most self-indulging and favourite things to do in a day is a nice warm shower, it sort of sets the tone of day for me.  Don’t we all love that lingering smell from people who have just had a shower, so fresh indeed! What if I told you that there is a body wash that smells nice not just for a couple of minutes, but for hours after a shower?!! 

I am a blogger and part of my job is to try new things, latest launches and that’s the bit I love most about my job. Recently, I got gifted two new body washes by Fiama from their latest range Fiama Scents. First one was Juniper Berries & Geranium and the other was Mimosa & Neroli and I used both. Like I said before there is nothing more I enjoy than a long indulging shower…..

Fiama Scents comes with atouch activated fragrance encapsulation technology, which essentially means that it enables fragrance release even with a slight rub on the skin for as long as 8 hours after a bath, woah I do have a cool job to try new things, and try I did.

I lead a fairly active lifestyle as I am on the road most of the time. I’m on the very busy Mumbai Roads most of the day trying to get from one meeting to other, shooting in the sun, attending events and then there are home errands all the time. It gets very hectic and I wouldn’t like it any other way, being busy keeps me going. While I was at my routine of running around, I did notice that the nice smelling Fiama Scents Shower gels’ fragrance stayed with me all throughout. It got fainter towards end of the day but I would say the scent stayed pretty long, and I kept on rubbing my wrist to smell it and get the touch activated, skin friendly micro beads activated. It’s like magic!

Now I like these shower gels not just for how they smell, I find them non-drying on my skin too which is an added plus for me in a shower gel. I am done with my test runs of the shower gel and am happy to report that I am already on bottle number 2. Since I was travelling I picked up a smaller travel sized pack which even came with a cute loofah…. Well nothing pleases me more than cute little surprise gits and as I write this I am ready to pack for my new adventure and I can say that this time around I will be smelling fresh and fragrant for 8 hours at least!
