We Indians are totally obsessed about fairness and fairness creams though how much ever we deny it, we still belong to that frame of mind. No wonder why fairness creams are such a big thing with us. I recently got my own collection of beauty buys which is the last list for 2015 and got one Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Cream.
Since a few days I have been religiously using the Clean & Clear Clear Fairness cream since moisturisation becomes a necessity in this season. It keeps the skin happy and hydrated without making it look too creamy or oily. I am using it as a base for my makeup and it does the job pretty well. The Clean & Clear Clear Fairness cream makes sure it gets my skin fairer and I am seeing positive results when applied daily. Though it would not drastically change one’s skin color but it lightens up your face positively.
When I look for a fairness cream I do not look for some chemical that would suddenly change my skin color and texture but something that just makes my face look lighter and brighter than usual. It is suitable for anyone who is in my category and willing to give it a shot without loosing out on your original skin. I would not advise it for someone expecting overnight results. It is best used with Clean & Clear Morning Energy Face Wash or Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Face Wash.

It is definitely worth a try!
While I am a loyal user of Clean & Clear Morning Energy Face Wash I usually don’t feel as soft after its use in these brutal North Indian winters so here I have my new favorite to keep up with my cleansing routine for the day that also helps to keep my skin soft – Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Face Wash.
Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Face Wash which seems to help you in tough winters, when you are looking for something smooth but equally cleansing. Since the name suggests it has a foaming quality which spreads evenly on your face and the best part is that it gets used in small quantities like other Johnson & Johnson products so you know if you have bought one, you can easily manage with it for one season.
I am using it to clean my face before my base make up followed by my regular dose of Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Cream and foundation. Even after using a makeup remover I feel the need to wash my face before sleep and this product is my go to every night after a party especially during these days.

Recently I was gifted a bag of Clean & Clear products in my mail. Since my teenage Clean & Clear has been the brand I trust the most when it comes to skincare. While the company has launched a few new products and two new flavors in the morning energy range apart from the older one. It has still maintained the list of its loyal users for all these years like me.
I clearly remember the first pimple that came out and how tensed I was to go school the next day and meet my best friend turned boyfriend. Skeptical enough I went ahead with the Clean & Clear face wash never to leave its side. I have stuck to it and recently I got the three new flavors for myself. Energy berry which is a pink colored granulated face wash with a sweet strawberry like fragrance on your face and Lemon which is a lime green granulated face wash which can provide you with freshness of lemon on a hot summer day. The third is green apple flavored which is green colored and equally refreshing. I am using both depending on my mood for the day.
Though I am a fan of these washes, I still go with the fact that it will dry your skin in the North Indian winters and you will need to apply a lot of cream to keep your skin baby soft. I have a normal skin texture and I would use this maybe in a week but not everyday. I would rather use the Clean & Clear Fairness Face Wash with Clean & Clear Fairness Cream which is just perfect for me.

All Clean & Clear products can be used daily and they have no harmful chemicals in most cases. The products are pocket friendly and easily available on all general stores in India.
Very often when I see a lisptick ruining someone’s smile, I feel something needs to be done badly. You all must have seen those aunties who smile with more lipstick smudged to their teeth than the lips itself and yes we do not want to be party to that group. So let me help to avoid making these lipstick mistakes and do it like a pro.
While dark colors show more than light colors it does not mean you have to abstain from your favorite red and burgundy shade.
Common lipstick mistakes
- Dehydration – Winters have come, like literally and if your lips are chapped chances are the lip color will not stay evenly and smudge to your teeth while you talk or eat.
- Lip balm – Lip balm should be a part of your daily skin care regime if you have a tendency of chapped lips, especially before applying any lipstick. You can pick up any colored or white lip balm to moisten your lips.
- Layering – It is a common opinion that you need to apply the lipcolor thrice to get the real color, trust me it ain’t true. Most of the brands have good shades and the tint should come in maximum two swipes. Any matte lipstick will smudge with multiple use.
- Lip liner – Whenever you want to shape your lips well, a lip liner is your friend. Do not avoid a lip liner and two extra minutes off your sleep to get that perfect rosy shape.
- Setting – Even before the pout became a hot tradition we all knew how to make a pouty face to set our lip colors right. You need to set your lips to get it in perfect shape accordingly. Remember to blot the extra color off your lips and create a final look.
While we perfect the art of applying lipstick there are many more who don’t!
There are some people who swear by gel eyeliners while there is another bunch who think it is a real waste of money and then there is a third category who do not believe in trying something new. They stand for what they have seen in the last so many years – the liquid eyeliner. From the chunk who likes it, they love Maybelline eye studio drama gel eyeliner for more than one reason. This is the first time that I have used a gel eyeliner, read further to know my experience with it.
Maybelline Eye Studio Drama Gel Eyeliner claims to stay for 36 hours without smudging but trust me, a girl like me would not stay in the same eyeliner for so long. I did use it for over 12 hours and it just worked fine. It really did not smudge leaving me not -so -conscious till I got home.
Maybelline Eye Studio Drama Gel Eyeliner comes in a package with a small bottle with the gel eyeliner and a brush for application. The brush is small but has soft bristles for precise application. The best part is that you can create just a thin outline or a dramatic winged eyeliner with the same ease since it has a two way brush.
