You get the best short hair removal from Braun, plus the instant, unbeatable smoothness of shaving – in a single stroke. And, for extra comfort, the Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator is cordless, so it can also be used Wet or Dry, in the bath or shower, for a new skin feeling. 9 out of 10 women voted it the best epilator they have ever tried.
A shaver head and trimmer cap are included to convert your epilator into a full-fledged electric shaver. Best Wet and Dry
 The Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator was designed specifically for epilation in warm water. Warm water is relaxing and soothing. The warmth improves your circulation and increase the comfort of your experience while making your skin less sensitive.

My Experience with Braun Silk Epil 7 Dual SE7751 Epilator:

When I opened the box, it was absolutely magical. I have used Philips and Remington epilators before, but this one by Braun is a class apart. No matter how many epilators I might have seen, the heavy body and twinkling pattern on Braun is mind blowing. The product feels super sturdy and the tweezers are packed differently. With its Venus razor blade attachment, it’s good for girls who are not willing to move to epilation.
What this does with the shaver+epilation head is that it epilates in one go, and while sweeping, it cuts off any hair that has been left behind. This claims to bring your hair growth cycle to regular and even, in four weeks time. After the first week, the hair that has been shaved grows back to epilation length in the second week, and so on! In four weeks, all the hair has been epilated once at least, shaving is not necessary then.
The razor head can be interchanged with the regular epilation head in the following month. On the downside, you have to use the same razor head 4 times, even if once a week.  This razor blade head also helps to remove any ingrown hair easily so that they grow upto epilation length. This epilator is cordless, it charges fast and can be used up to 40 minutes continuously on full charge. Charging is super easy but the charging plug into the epilator feels very loose on my epilator. It blinks while it is being charged.
Now about the epilation, this pulls about the hardest hair in one or two sweeps. On a regular epilator, you might have to run it over for 4-5 times. This seems less painful than any other epilator I have tried in the past. I simply love the pretty colors on it. The epilator is watertight and the blue cover can be removed and washed. I love it because my hands sweat and the grip really helps. The epiltor can be cleaned under running water, I like to remove the tweezing head and wash it separately as well. I also love the way the two speed button works on being twisted in a circular motion.

My Experience with Skin Republic Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask Sheet:

Skin Republic Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask Sheet Review1
I love sheet masks but, I have to be quite honest and admit that I rarely use them. The reason why I don’t use them is mainly due to time, it requires a lot of pampering time which is quite rare when you have a 16-month-old toddler running around the house!
Skin Republic is an Australian brand specialising only in sheet masks. Having said that, Skin Republic’s facial sheet masks are made in Korea so, you can be sure about how they function and they feel pretty much the same as most Korean facial sheet masks are. There are 12 products in Skin Republic’s range of masks. There are 6 facial sheet masks, an under-eye mask, a neck and decolletage mask and 4 types of hand and foot sheet masks. Today, I’ll be talking about their facial sheet masks which are, in my opinion, pretty damn good.
Anyway, onto the Skin Republic Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask Sheet; it comes in a plastic pouch that is soaked in the serum. The mask contains Vitamin C to help slow down free-radical damage, Vitamin E to reduce sun damage, reduce skin inflammation, increase firmness, and improve the tone and texture of the skin. It also contains mulberry, liquorice, allantoin, green tea and coffee bean extract, all of which helps to bright the skin, increase water contents in the skin and support cells, promotes cell replication and healing of wounds and scars, and tightening the skin

Josie Maran products are top notch and of superior quality, so even though you pay top dollars for them, it’s great to use them and the overall experience is so rich.

My Experience with Josie Maran Unscented Whipped Argan Oil Body:

The body butter comes in a regular body butter tub packaging. There are so many products for skin care in today’s world and we are so spoiled for choices. When I visit markets, it’s very difficult not to go overboard and overspend, and I always regret later 😛 The mall near me was having a huge Josie Maran stall during the holiday season and I was so impressed by their display of products. Most of Josie’s products have argan oil, which is believed to be a great moisturizer for the skin. I have used Josie Maran’s argan milk, which was awesome; as well as her mud mask.
Josie Maran Unscented Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter product details
There were a lots of variants on display in the body butter section, but the best ones were all sold out and I didn’t like the ones which were available, so I picked up the unscented one.
This body butter is very different TBS body butters or Bath and Body Work butters – Josie Maran butter is creamier and more spreadable, not hard. I use it after shower on my hands and legs, giving more emphasis on elbows and knees. I like the way this body butter feels so slippery yet not sticky or oily. By far, this is one of the best butters that I have used.
It gets absorbed by the skin almost instantly. I have sensitive skin and due to that, I am unable to use a lot of products, but this one fits the bill in every single way. I will be buying more of these butters and in different fragrances because despite its price tag, it delivers! The best part is that my kid can use it too as it’s free from nasty ingredients. I am glad that it could be used by the man of the house too 😀 because it’s unscented and does not smell floral 😛

Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain Review

Hi everyone,
In this post, I am going to review the shade “Pink Tea” from Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain range. Read on for more details:

Product Description:
A silky, long-lasting lip stain that keeps lips covered with bold
color from AM to PM—no need to reapply or touch up throughout the day.
What it does:  This best-selling, high-coverage lip color glides on smooth and transforms from a creamy texture into a silky, lightweight stain. Infused with avocado oil, the long-lasting formula delivers rich color that feels comfortable, is never sticky, and won’t dry out lips.

My Experience with Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain:
Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain shade name
This lip stain comes in a typical, see-through packaging with a twist-up cap. The shade number #14 is mentioned at the bottom of the tube and the range name around the tube. The applicator on Sephora’s cream lip stain is a standard doe-foot applicator.
Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain packaging
“Pink Tea” is a pale, pinky n*de shade which would flatter fair to medium skin tones. It might wash you out if you have deeper skin tones. You can wear it every day, to office or just casually.
Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain full
Sephora Collection 40 Pink Tea Cream Lip Stain wandThis lip stain has a mousse-y texture, like all other shades from this range. It goes on easily and smoothly on the lips. It’s highly pigmented and delivers full coverage in a single swipe. It dries down within one minute and sets to a matte finish.
This lip stain does not settle into the fine lines of my lips and feels very comfortable on the lips throughout the day. It does have a cake batter scent, which fades away after application. When it comes to lasting power, it lasts all day and is transfer proof. I get full 9 to 10 hours even with heavy meals. It fades a little with oily food. You do need to prep your lips prior the application since it clings on to the dry patches of the lips.
