This Aqua Bomb is a bomb to die for

So I am finally done with this pot and when I empty a product it definitely works for me … On days when I need extra hydration , especially on my air travels when skin tends to over dry this is what I layer on over my Drunk Elephant hydra gel, no hydration is sufficient when you are travelling .I do a lot of product cycling and this helps the skin to shock each time .

This aqua bomb – the true cream from Belief is everything when it comes to flawless matte gel hydration . Clinically tested to provide up to 26 hours of moisture, this uniquely indulgent formula leaves skin soft, supple, and deeply moisturized. This formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including comfrey leaf, a powerful hydrating agent. The cushiony cream format is designed to ‘burst’ when applied, releasing a flood of moisture onto skin, and then absorb completely without stickiness for a healthy, smooth, supple appearance.

So if you have not yet found your dream moisturiser then do give this little bomb from @belifusa to be the one as it is what it promises

DR JART PLUS BB cream — BB with a lot of benefits

Who does not want a sheer coverage sunscreen that hydrates and plumps skin ??? Well this beauty balm from Dr Jart is an answer to it . A moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum, Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 is an all-in-one product that provides advanced brightening properties. Perfect under makeup, its natural-looking coverage minimizes the appearance of imperfections and evens the skintone. Antioxidant bio-peptides and adenosine protect skin from harsh environmental factors while restoring firmness and elasticity. This lightweight formula features mineral sunscreens to provide broad spectrum sun protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Skin is left looking smooth, perfect, and natural.

There are 2 shades in this light-medium and medium deep . I picked the shade light-medium as it was matching my yellow undertone skin perfectly ,I felt the medium deep was too orangey and will turn more as it shall oxidise. Its not too thick nor runny and perfectly blends in skin . The coverage is disappointing if you are looking for a full coverage bb cream.

I use this when I use this when I just want the sunscreen and nothing else on my face . Off late I have been combining this over the Drunk Elephant hydra gel and the result is even better when I mist the Tatcha dewy mist atop. If you are looking for one stop with very sheer coverage then this beauty balm from Dr Jart is your product .

-Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide: Provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
-Bio-Peptide Complex: Provides antiaging properties and supports natural collagen.
-Arbutin: Brightens skin; evens skintone.
-Adenosine: Improves elasticity and firms skin.

Blush Mania with Tarte

12 HOUR AMAZONIAN CLAY BLUSH ….. This was a clear winner the moment i used this the first few times . I am very allergic to Mac blushes and that was the only brand with vast spread colors until Tarte Cosmetics redefined the definition of blush . Tartecosmetics has has the most wide variety of usable colors , with shimmer and matte. I started loving this brand so much because it being natural from the scratch to the finished product .
I was practically up at night till 1 am to get my hands on these limited editions . I already had missed out on the Blush Book and did want to give up this time ,The only thing that was disappointing was the brush that came along with this, it really not useful as te bristles are way too airy to pack pigment .I now hope tarte comes to India soon .

Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by tarte’s bestselling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result: Blush that wears better, longer, and truer. I went to greater extents to lay my hands on all the limited editions as they would be sold out within hours of launch , am glad I now own all limited editions . This has to be the Best Blush Brand Tarte Cosmetics because the color payoff , the pigment is not bright and not chalky and gives the most natural looking blush for a very long time .
