After the recent Neutrogena debacle, I became skeptical about using other moisturizers that promise to be good for oily skin. That’s when I came across the Aroma Magic Juniper Berry moisturizer. It looked watery and lightweight and hence I decided to give it a try.
Last month, I ran out of my favourite Maybelline Baby Lips Balm. Of all the lip balms I have tried, it was the only one that worked on my chapped lips.

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.
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.
