Avon Clearskin Foaming Cleanser

Hello guys! Here is what I’ve been loving lately for my skin. I never tried something from Avon, but I decided to give it a try this foaming cleanser. I’ve been using my Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash. I can't say good enough word about this product, because it's simply the best. I have to try another one, and that’s why I chose this one from Avon.
Clears up acne pimples and helps prevent new blemishes. USE: Wet hands and face with warm water. Squeeze an appropriate amount of product onto wet hands. Lather onto skin with a gentle, circular motion, and leave on for 30 seconds. Rinse with warm water and gently pat dry. May be used once a day. If bothersome dryness, irritation or peeling occurs, reduce application to every other day.
Foams away makeup and impurities. Leaves skin looking brighter, softer, and perfectly clean. Quite a little is required for a single wash. I usually press 3/4th part of the white cap/nozzle provided and enough product is discharged that easily takes care of my face/neck and hands.  The bottle is plastic, and the cap/nozzle is quite unique and easy-to-operate kind.  The nozzle is itself covered with a transparent plastic cap for extra durability and complete packaging is extremely travel friendly. I have been using it twice a day and even in this cold and dry weather, it leaves my face squeaky clean without any stretchy or dry skin.
I really like this one; my skin is so much better after using more than a month. If you have oily to combination skin, you should definitely try this one.

Have you tried this foaming cleanser yet? How do you like it?

3 Hair Masks For Shiny Healthy Hair

   Damaged hair. Well, we’ve been all there. Blow dryers, products and weather are the main reason why we have damaged hair. So that’s why I chose to write this post, because I deal with this problem too. I have dry hair, and I definitely use all the time masks, and thanks to that my hair it is much better now. But what I personally love to use are homemade hair masks, easy and simple to use. The ingredients that I use you have it on your own home. So let’s begin!

1. All Hair Types: Avocado & Honey
   Cut and scoop out the flesh from a ripened avocado and mix in a tablespoon of organic honey. Apply to hair and allow it to sit for maximum 20 minutes before rising it of in the shower. For a better result you can also sleep with this mask, and then take a shower in the morning.
   Avocados are rich in a variety of vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin E and protein, both of which your hair needs to remain soft and healthy. Meanwhile, honey is a natural antibacterial agent.

2. Dry Hair: Organic Coconut Oil & Honey
   All you need is one tablespoon of organic coconut oil, and one tablespoon of organic honey. If you need you can add a bit more of these ingredients for extra damaged hair. Mix the ingredients together and apply to your hair. You can heat the mixture up on a stovetop in a small saucepan. It will be much easier to apply it to your hair. Focus on the ends where most damage occurs. Wrap your hair in a bun and let the mask soak in for 30-40 minutes. Wash the mask out in the shower using your regular shampoo and conditioner. Voila, your hair is soft, smooth, and healthy!
   Coconut Oil is a rich source of nutrients like vitamin E, vitamin K and iron. These nutrients are essential for maintaining your hair’s shine and softness. Regular application of coconut oil helps your hair strong and moisturized.
3. Oily Hair: Apple Cider Vinegar & Lemon
   Combine ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar with the grated peel of an entire lemon and allow it to set for 15 minutes to absorb the excess oil from your scalp, and then rinse in the shower. This is an easy way to get rid of oily hair that it’s your biggest problem for sure. Simple and easy. You will be able to see such a great results after trying this method 2 to 3 times a week.
   Apple Cider Vinegar will remove build up from styling products and conditioners and strengthen the hair shaft, leaving you with soft, shiny strands. It will also balance hair’s pH level, kill bacteria and is a cure for the dandruff.  Lemon can remove excess oil without stripping away too much of the natural oil that your hair needs to keep the ends of your hair strong and maintained.

Dove Purely Pampering Body Cream - Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla

Hey guys! 

   My absolutely favourite brand for my body creams is Dove. I have dry skin, so this body lotion from Dove was a saver for my body.
    I hope you all having a great day! Xoxo
   I am very lazy when it comes to applying my body lotion everyday, but this little beauty has given me a little extra motivation to make that effort, so that I can be enveloped in its Warm Vanilla scent at night when I go to bed, and still be bathed in it in the morning when I wake up.
   The texture of this lotion is more like a cream really than a lotion, and at the same time it absorbs quickly and completely like a lotion, leaving your skin feeling nourished, but with no oily film left behind.
   The rich blend of nourishing cream and Shea Butter, is what provides this lotion with its nourishing goodness, and in turn gives your skin the pampering that it deserves.
   Shea Butter is a natural plant-based oil, extracted from kernels found within the fruit of the Shea nut tree.
   It has anti-aging benefits and properties similar to green tea, and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter contains five essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamins E and D, allantoin (good for healing skin irritations), and vitamin A. This combination of ingredients helps neutralize free radical damage, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and fading age spots, as well as stimulating collagen production.
   The container with the flip up top is durable, easy to open with one hand, and comes in 2 sizes: 250ml as well as 400ml.
   I would recommend this to all skin types because Dove has 2 ranges of products - one for dry skin and one for normal to oily skin. The Purely pampering range from Dove has 2 additional flavours/scents - Almond Cream & Hibiscus and Coconut Milk & Jasmine Petals. 

   Being a Dove product, I definitely expected great results - but this cream has crossed all boundaries! I have the cream on my nightstand and put it every night before I go to sleep, just because, I love the texture and it's delectable fragrance! 

This is a sure add on to my favourites list already!

Do you have a body lotion that you can't live without? Do you like Dove products?
