Hello Lovely Friends,

Maybelline Express Finish Turquoise Lagoon

Recently I have purchased this Maybelline Express Finish Nail Enamel in Turquoise Lagoon in 862 and I must say whenever I look at my nails I get a cool breezy feeling. The color is aquatic and reminds me of the underwater shows in National Geographic Channel Nyah-NyahWho me?

Thalgo Face Masks ~ Moisture Quenching Mask & Melt Away Mask ~ Review & Swatches

Hello Lovely Friends,

Happy Weekend.....
Thalgo Face Masks Reviews
FINALLY weekend is here...I had a tiring week due to hectic work, blogging, vlogging combined with illness [ result of eating expired Kulfi Sad smile ]. So this weekend I am all in for self pampering and Browser Shopping [ On a tight budget so settled for Internet Window Shopping ]. As I am making plans for self pampering, I am only thinking of Face Packs, Body Scrubs and Yoga, so I have decided to review the Thalgo Face Masks today.

Thalgo Moisture Quenching Mask

The Thalgo Moisture Quenching Mask Claims: A hydrating mask for an instant boost of moisturisation. Contains a green algae extract called Seve Marine, red algae and plant extracts, barley milk and hemp oil for in-depth hydration.

Price: 1740 INR for 50ml

Fragrance: Soothing mild floral fragrance.

Thalgo Moisture Quenching Mask Ingredients
Why Thalgo Moisture Quenching Mask: Most of you must already know that I have normal to dry skin with flaky nose. When I mentioned the same problem to Thalgo Team, they explained that the flakes are usually the symptoms of dehydrated skin which should be treated by restoring the water content. So, Thalgo team recommended the use of the Moisture Quenching Mask on the nose or any other flaky areas at least once a week.

How Thalgo Moisture Quenching Mask Worked: Thalgo Team's explanation of dehydrated skin being the cause of flaky skin seemed acceptable to me because in the past I noticed that the flakes lessened with the use of water-based moisturizers compared to oil based moisturizers. So I have started using the mask on the nose area once in a week. As suggested by the team, I applied a thin layer of this mask on thoroughly exfoliated skin [ I skipped the toner though Nyah-Nyah ] and rinsed it off after 15 minutes. I noticed that the formula is very light but once on the skin it starts precipitating and when the flakes are more it causes a bearable burning sensation. Of course it didn’t irritate the skin with redness or rashes. So a safe mask to use and also, the mask washes off easily with less water without leaving any slippery residue on the skin.
