Skin care Arbonne

Hello there beauties,

This blog post is all about skincare routine of the month of June aka June Faves, Woohoo! I freshly discovered this brand (about two months ago) and it is safe to say it has become one of my favorite brands. In the skincare sample kit provided by Arbonne, there are 6 little tubelets (I guess you could say). Each performs a separate role in itself and has their own benefits to it.

After using these samples, I went right onto their website and purchased them in full sized products — There literally do wonder! When I first had to try them on, I was very hesitant because my skin is very sensitive, and I did not want to try something that would cause my skin to have breakouts. But after using these samples, my skin took a U-turn. Now that I’ve tried these babies, I literally refuse to go back to my old face and eye creme.

7 TUBELETS AND THEIR BENEFITS

  1. Smoothing Facial Cleanser – The rich pearlescent creme formula gently washes away makeup and impurities, leaving your skin smooth and refreshed.
  2. Regenerating Toner – A quick misting of this antioxidant-rich, pH-balance toner refreshes skin and prepares it for the next step — firming and lifting skin’s appearance.
  3. Intensive Renewal Serum – The collagen-supporting ingredients are clinically proven to hold in moisture and help visibly firm and lift, while lessening the appearance of fine lines.
  4. Corrective Eye Creme – Help diminish the look of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles with this exclusive eye creme.
  5. Day – Restorative Day Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen – Our Concentrated day creme formula moisturizes while helping prevent sunburn, and has collagen-supporting ingredients and botanicals to help capture a youthful appearance.
  6. Day – Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen – This ultra-hydrating creme for drier skin moisturizes deeply, supports collagen and protects skin’s youthful appearance. Key ingredients work together to help your skin look young and radiant.
  7. Night – Night Repair Creme – Rich with an ultra-hydrating blend of botanicals and collagen-supporting ingredients. Wake up to visibly youthful-looking skin.

Garnier – SkinActive

Garnier – SkinAcitve Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask/Masque Tissue

Maitri PatelGarnier skin active face mask sheet

There are two things you all must know about me by now. I love being camera ready and I love a good facial mask. When it comes to makeup and skin care, I absolutely love trying on new products.

Couple weeks back, I went to the drugstore near my house to purchase a good face mask, but they didn’t have the one I was looking for and luckily this goodie came flying to me today! When a little bundle of joy land onto my door steps I couldn’t help but, open it and try it the next second. This facemask, in particular, is a super hydrating, glow-boosting mask. It gives you that glow as well as gives the skin a luminous complexion and healthy-looking radiant. The mask smells absolutely wonderful. It is weightless, easy to apply and it gave my skin the moisturizer and glow which it needed.

On the packaging, it says “delivers 24 hours long lasting hydration”. Which I complete agree with because it delivered me the 24-hour long-lasting hydration. This face mask left my face feeling super fresh and all pumped up!

HOW TO USE: 

  1. Start with a clean scan. Gently press the mask onto the face with the blue protective film visible on the outside of your face.

  2. Peel off the blue film and then adjust and smooth out the mask to fit the contour of your face.

  3. Leave it on for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove the mask and gently massage the remaining product into the skin or you may rinse it out.

The Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask retails for $2.99 and you can find more information on HERE.

L’oréal Paris | Pure-Clay Mask

Maitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity

I’ve never tried face masks before. I was never a huge fan of them, mainly because of the way they stretch my skin and feel when they are on my face. I always felt as if they were burning my skin – which I did not like at all.

Could days back, I was watching KaushalBeauty’s YouTube video on her skincare routine which sparked my interest in trying on a face mask. That’s when I did some research on which one would be suitable to use on my skin. I did not want to go all out and purchase an expensive one since it was my very first time examining it. I needed something inexpensive and that’ll serve my requirements.

After investigating for good two days, haha, I came across this L’oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask/Masque Argile-Pure. When I first applied it all over my face, I was worried it might not dry quickly and I’m going to have a tough time using this product but I was wrong. It dried pretty quickly, it wasn’t too heavy on my face unlike the other masks, and it didn’t disturb my skin at all. I felt this product pull at the stuff off my skin — I felt it work.

Once the 15 minutes were up, I rinse it off with warm water and I felt my skin softer than earlier and fresher than ever. My brother instantly asked what I put on my skin and said, “you look different – in a good way different!” Right then and there, this product became my go-to face mask.

This face mask is very good for instant glow before any event, cheap and affordable, and it is not time-consuming at all.

January Favorites!

Maitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityI’ve been attending a lot of events lately. Starting from the New year’s, to various photo shoots, family reunion, friends get together, etc.. And there is literally nothing better than pampering my skin after a long day of wearing makeup.

Few things I like to do after a fun filled day;

  1. I first use face wipes to take my makeup off, then jump straight into the shower. I use Beauty 360 Sensitive Skin Cleansing Towelettes. They remove all the makeup off my face and leave my skin all fresh and glowy looking. You could find these swipes at any drug stores and these are pretty affordable as well!  Maitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity
  2. I use Cerva for my face wash and for the body, I use a shower gel from The Body Shop in Sweet Lemon. The smell of it is soososososo good. 😍
  3. There is nothing better than moisturizing my clean fresh face with some face cream. My face cream is from Clinique. It hydrates my skin like no tomorrow! I’ve tried multiple face cream but none of them satisfied my skin as much as the Clinique did. It does not feel heavy on my skin whatsoever and it’s literally great. Like the best. Maitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity
  4. How can I moisturize my face and completely forget about the body? So for my body, I use Josie Maran Whipped Argon Oil Body Butter. The one I use is unscented. I like my body cream to be unscented so I could go with whichever perfume I desire to wear and not have to worry about the scent budging! Maitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity
  5. Last but not the lips! (See what I did there, haha!) We all love pump-y lips and to pump my lips up, I use the super nourishing lip balm from the Sephora Collection. It keeps my lips hydrated, soft and looking fabulous than before. 💋Maitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity

Muah💋

I’ve always heard a lot about Kylie Jenner’s lipsticks/lip glosses but I was never really intreated by it. Mainly because I was told by a friend of mine that they sell out within the first few seconds of launching it and are very expensive. Which is 100% true. And I’m not about the waiting life. If the item is sold out, I’ll literally check the website million times a day to see if they restock it. And if I do place an order, I keep tracking the package every five minutes to see when it’ll deliver. As much as I love online shopping, I have no patience whatsoever.

One day, I was sitting in my room, looking at YouTube videos where I came across a review video of Kylie Jenner’s lipgloss – Posie K. I thought to myself, let’s check it out. I don’t have to purchase it but there’s no harm in watching the reviews and how it works/feels on the skin. Let me tell you guys, the review video was marvelous. I wanted to go ahead and make the purchase right then and there but I did not, I made a wise choice by talking more about it to my friends, picked out the shade as well as watched more YouTube videos. After consulting for about good two weeks, I made a decision of purchasing my first Kylie Jenner’s lipgloss in shade Posie K.

Couple months later, Kylie launched my all time favorite shade – Leo. Leo is a dark maroon matte liquid lipstick. Dark maroon lipsticks are my ride or die at this point. The color looks fantastic on my skin and it goes on with literally any outfit as well as perfect to wear for any occasion. Although the price of the lipstick/lipgloss were out of the roof, I’m glad I made the investment. It lasts on my lip for good 12 plus hours. It goes on smoothly, it is not sticky or annoying my lips in any form.

Here are couple snapshots of me wearing Leo and Posie K💋Maitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicityalbumtemp
