NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams – A must have !

NYX Soft Matte Lip colors

Today I am going to share my thoughts about Nyx matte Lip creams.

Nyx soft matte lip creams are now a days one of my favorite beauty findings!

The name itself shows it’s creamy instead of watery though it’s not long lasting, disappears quickly. The creamy formula makes it non drying that’s pretty cool. These Matte Cream lip colors are available in twelve shades and the range covers everyone either you like peachy tones or dark brownish ones my favorite shades are Paris hot pink and Ibiza Matte deep rose pink and for super cool nude lip look I like Buenos Aries Soft coral .

The sweet creamy scent and soft creamy feel make’s it my favorite.

I will recommend this range to everyone as it has all the features that a fantastic gloss should have and to top it all, it’s also affordable.

Clearasil daily facial Scrub

My facial cleansing satisfied with exfoliation. And I was in need of a mild scrub for everyday use recently I got Clearasil daily scrub

Clearasil is a combination of a cleanser and exfoliator. It’s quite watery and contains fine granules. After using it, the best thing about it removes the dead skin off and turns my skin bit softer. The fragrance is quite pleasing and refreshing. Though my skin is sensitive but with this facial scrub I didn’t feel any harshness.
The thing I like most is Salicylic acid helps in keeping the acne away. And it makes skin visibly clearer.

I recommend this facial scrub for oily and moderate skin

My dermalogica facial experience at CACI Centre

I was recently invited to CACI Centre to try their Dermalogica Facial by Ms Farkhanda Bawany.
It is a facial focused on ridding your skin of dead cells, and increasing radiance.
Me, I love facials. I don’t do facials often, I do get facial on occasions only, lazy me but when it came to deep exfoliation and nourishing dry tired skin, it was the most wonderful experience ever. Being a working woman, to relax and unwind for an hour in the safe hands of the expert therapists at the CACI Centre is the ultimate treat for anyone in need of serious pampering.
Caci Centre

Dermalogica Facial treatment began after a personalized consultation. Then the therapist invited me to the facial room. My esthetician, started by removing all of my makeup and doing my face mapping to analyse my skin type under a magnifying light. My facial was an exceptional experience at Caci centre, that delivers outstanding, long-lasting results in form of glowing, beautiful skin revealed and my mind and body left revitalized.
During the facial treatment I experienced traditional hands-on techniques and non-invasive skincare technology, such as cleansing, manual extraction, exfoliation which was a bit tingling but comes up with effective result and how could I forget intensive sequenced massage from the professional therapists’ expert hands. Really enjoyed a divinely pampering neck and shoulder massage
After 45 minutes, Bam! I loved it. The facial made my skin soft and supple by adding some glow. I was incredibly impressed by how refined and smooth my skin looked, and how I’ve never felt my skin (especially my cheek area) feeling soft and silky, the dull skin and dry patches gone and my skin is looking so refreshed and nourished. It was a pleasure to have my facial from CACI Centre and to be able to relax so completely knowing that you are in expert hands. I am loving the mew me and would definately would go back there to “straighten my skin out,” especially during change of seasons or when I feel like my skin needs a good targeted treatment.
The CACI centre skin consultant recommends this facial be done once in a month or in two months and I would recommend all readers to get rid of the inexperienced beauticians and harmful products at salons.
