Toxic chemicals in beauty products and their alternatives.

Toxic chemicals in beauty products and their alternatives
The beauty industry is highly unregulated, enabling the brands to do almost anything they want – using known carcinogens and other toxic chemicals in beauty products, incomplete ingredients lists, misleading labels, false claims and so much more. The only way to safeguard our health and environment is learning what goes into our products and avoiding the bad stuff. I have listed the most commonly used toxic chemicals in personal care products below to help you make a decision and take a step towards clean beauty.

Why the Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturiser did not work for me.

neutrogena oil free moisturizer review
Ever since I started a skincare regimen for my oily skin, the biggest challenge has been finding the perfect moisturizer. Without a moisturizer, my skin becomes greasy and shiny within an hour of washing my face. So over the years, I have read several blogs in hopes of finding a product that will keep my face matte and is affordable too. And almost every blog listed the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer SPF 15 as the best moisturizer so I decided to finally give it a try.

Bon Organics Aloe Vera Shampoo Review

bon organics aloe vera shampoo review
I have always had thick long hair without any hairfall issues since childhood, thanks to regular oil champis my mom used to do every Sunday night. But when I entered college I started blow drying and ironing and did not oil my hair anymore. And within a year my hair became a dry frizzy mess. I started oiling again and switched to Tresemme climate control shampoo and conditioner and within months my hair was back to its original state (or so I thought due to the silicone effect).

I am not really a follower of beauty or fashion trends.

Bonsoul Witch Hazel Toner Review

CTM is the basic step in every skincare routine. I have read about it a thousand times yet never followed through. I just thought toners were a thing of the past and with all these advanced facewashes we have, a complete unnecessity. After various futile attempts at controlling oiliness, I thought maybe this step is what’s missing from my routine. I went ahead and purchased Bonsoul Witch Hazel distillate since I heard witch hazel is good for oily skin and here’s my experience after using it for over a month now.

PAC Zero Pore Separation Cream-02 Review

pac zero pore separation cream
A good base is essential for flawless foundation application’-This is something I always knew yet never followed until 6 months ago and Boy! I was impressed. Initially, I used to apply aloe vera gel as a base and although it helped the foundation go on smoothly, it did not help the foundation to stay longer. Hence I decided to buy a makeup primer and purchased Pac Zero Pore Separation Cream in the shade 02 since I heard good reviews about PAC Primers.
