Hey guys, today’s review is about a powder cleanser from Skincare Villa, a brand owned by fellow blogger Sonali Patil who sells homemade skincare products made with natural ingredients without any preservatives or synthetic chemicals. She sent me a couple of products for my skin type to try out and one of it was the Skincare Villa Oats Almond Cleanser.
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.
We are all familiar with the numerous benefits of aloe vera on skin and hair. But I also thought it wouldn’t suffice my oily skin needs. But while I was looking for a good night cream, I found some people were using aloe vera at night for oily skin and saw some great results so I decided to try it too. I am currently using Bon organics Aloe vera gel and here’s my complete experience.
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. So while the world was going crazy with sheet masks and the 10 step K-beauty skincare, I stood loyal to my homemade face packs for the great wonders it has done to my skin. Then one day I read an article about the Clean Beauty trend taking over the beauty industry in the west and a little research later, I was convinced to replace my most trusted products for good.
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.
