Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser Review

Company Claims

Detoxify and resurface your skin at the cellular level for the beautifully regenerated look of a mini-professional treatment. 

• Regenerates skin’s surface at cellular level 
• Deep cleanses, exfoliates to detoxify, and conditions

I have been using the Extra Gentle Cleanser from Neutrogena for more than 2 years and wanted to try something different. I had read a few good reviews of this cleanser so went ahead and got it. I used this product for about 2 weeks and ready for a review. 



Product comes in a squeezable plastic tube with a flip top. I love the packaging as I can control the amount of product and also the black colored tube. Definitely customer friendly! 


The cleanser is white in color with minute exfoliating beads. I expected this to be a gentle cleanser but turned out to be a gentle scrub. Its minute red exfoliating beads gives a gentle scrub without any lather. 

I wet my face and apply small dots of this cleanser on five points of my face(Cheeks+Chin+ Forehead+Nose) and then two points on my neck. Then cleanse by circular motions and wash with water. 

I have dry skin and love the fact that it does not lather as lathering dries my skin but scrubbing my face twice a day is a big No No! I use this only once in a day as its a Scrub Cleanser and makes my skin feels so soft. A daily Salicylic acid scrub is good for skin and this is the best Gentle scrub I have found, but cleanser? I usually use my make up remover wipes to remove my make up and do not depend on my cleanser to remove the entire make up. After removing my make up, I use this Olay cleanser to cleanse-scrub my face. It makes my skin feel fresh and soft. 

Final Verdict:

I have found a excellent Salicylic gentle scrub for my dry and sensitive but will not use it as a cleanser. 


349rs for 100g (I bought it from HealthandGlow Store)

Will I recommend: Yes as a Gentle Scrub

Will I repurchase: Yes! Love it as a Gentle Scrub with Salicylic Acid

MAC CreamSheen Lipstick in Crosswire

Crosswire is one Bright, Pinky Coral Lipstick from MAC, love this shade coz it makes me look bright. This is from the CreamSheen section from MAC, this is one of my favorite section along with Amplified. Creamsheen lives up to its name, creamy and a sheen finish. 

This is a shade I usually prefer to wear in the morning as it makes me look bright and gives me warmth, this is definitely a summer shade. 

Its creamy on the lips and gives a sheen finish. It does not gets settled in the lines of my lips so makes my lips look full. Good pigmentation and feels so soft on my dry lips. Staying power is good, it lasts upto 3 to 4 hrs on my lips. 

Swatch of the Lipstick:

Cremesheens in general are pigmented, long lasting and moisturizing and this has all three qualities. This is one Mac Shade that definitely goes into my Favs list.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque Review

Heard a lot of Macadamia products and wanted to try this one especially because deep repair masques are very essential in hair care routine. It is a treatment that I do to my hair every once in a week. 

Company Claims:

Our Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor that will penetrate and rebuild damaged hair for improved shine and elasticity.


It comes in a beautifully designed packaging with Moroccan-style print, a plastic jar with a screw lid. I hope they attached a small plastic spoon to scoop out the product. 


It contains flower seed oils which is great for hair and also no Parabens!! 


As you can see in the below picture, I have used most of the product. 

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque has a very thick and creamy texture to it and the fragrance of the product is very fruity. I love the smell of my hair after using this product. The creaminess helps it to cling to the hair without weighing it down. I leave it for about 15 mins in my hair and wash with water.

I had very dry and coarse hair and now I don't remember of having dry or damaged hair anymore. It makes my hair super soft, silky, shiny with fruity smell. After continuous usage, I feel my hair is more healthier and also less hair fall. 250 ml of the product comes for more than 7 to 8 months which is awesome. 

Best Hair Product! 

250ml- 1300rs
I bought the product from Strwberrynet.com. 

Will I repurchase: YES! 
Will I Recommend: YES!

Faces Cosmetics Long Wear Eye Pencil Review

Hi Make up lovers! Today I'm reviewing a product from Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil. 

Company Claims:

Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

Price: 249 rs


This is my first Faces product and actually got it as my Revlon Colorstay pencil was over and wanted to try new eye pencil. So reading a few reviews on the Internet bought this one.

I bought in the colors: Solid Black and Metal Brown

These are a dupe for the Milani Liquifye pencil but I feel these pencils are better than the Milani Liquifye. 

  1. Creamy and smooth-glides easily
  2. Very well pigmented
  3. Comes in 11 shades 
  4. Stays without smudging for more than 8 to 9 hours-Definitely long wearing
  5. Smudge proof and Waterproof
  6. Decently priced
  7. Long wear on Lower lash line too
  8. Great to do a soft everyday smokey eye


1. Bit difficult to draw a thin line. 

Final Verdict: A must have eye pencil. Will definitely try other shades too.

Will I repurchase: Definitely!
