My review of the Just herbs herb enriched Skin tint

thebeautymascot/just herbs skin enriched skin tint

The Just herbs herb enriched skin tint comes in a light-weight glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle is quite sturdy hence you don’t have to worry about travelling with it. I even carried it with me during my trip to India. But I have a problem with the pump dispenser. The product does not come out properly and when it does, too much product comes out. So I remove the cap and then take what is required. I don’t trust the pump and I hate wasting anything, especially makeup 😀

The just herbs herb enriched skin tint has a creamy texture.When I saw some demo videos of using the product, I felt that this does not blend properly. But to be honest, the skin tint blends so well into the skin, giving a velvet matte finish. Love how natural it looks, as if you have no makeup, but as if you have beautiful and radiant skin.

The skin tint comes in just one shade, a light shade with pink undertones. But works well on most skin tones. I have tried it on fair, medium and dark skin tones and found that it works well on all skin tones. But works best for fair and medium skin tones.

Speaking about coverage, it gives medium coverage, a minimal medium coverage, I must say. So if you need a full coverage or if you have to hide severe acne  or blemishes this is not for you. But you can use a concealer on top of it just as you would while using any other light to medium coverage foundations. And remember this one can actually help in drying out newly formed acne, so you leave it there and let it help you with that issue.

The Just herbs herb enriched skin tint feels very light on the skin. Does not settle into fine lines or dry patches. Diminishes the appearance of large pores. So if not as a foundation, you can use it as a base underneath your foundation.

The best thing about the skin tint according to me is the ingredient list, super impressive ingredient list. Don’t forget to go through the ingredient list. It is organic. Mineral oil and Paraben free.

The skin tint also helps in controlling oil for hours. It has a herbal smell, which reminds me of henna leaves (not of the powder, but the real fresh leaves) .  The skin tint claims to provide sun protection, but the SPF is not mentioned. I believe even if it does give sun protection, the spf level will be low. Hence I  use a sunscreen.

The skin tint stays on your skin for about 6-8 hours. You can either apply it as such or you can set it with a powder. Both ways, I love it!

Overall

In love with:

  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Blends into the skin so well, whilst evening out skin tone and providing a radiant glow to the skin.
  • Suits all skin types.
  • Blurs imperfections, large pores. Helps control oil.
  • Organic and contains some really amazing ingredients.
  • Light-medium coverage which stays for 6-8 hours.
  • Contains SPF.
  • Feels very light on the skin.

Not  in love with:

  • The pump dispenser does not work properly.

Final verdict

Once I started using the Just herbs herb enriched skin tint, I have been using it almost everyday. And why not, part skincare and part makeup remember? You will definitely replace this with your everyday foundation. I even  use it on special occasions. But if you need full coverage, then you will be disappointed with the coverage, just gives a light to medium coverage. But you can also use it as a base under your makeup as it not only blurs the imperfections, but also contains amazing ingredients which helps in taking care of your skin.

The skin tint not just gives a glow outside, but  nourishes your skin from inside. I highly recommend this to all and I give it 4.9/5. Wish the pump dispenser worked well too!

Some might find it a bit expensive as you might think a bb or cc cream can be used instead, but ingredients guys, ingredients used are just brilliant.

I love the product. Have you used it? What are your thoughts?

Have a wedding or any other event to attend and wondering how to remove tan from skin at home? This is for you!

I believe every complexion be it fair or dark, everybody is beautiful. I am sure you believe in that too. But sun tan might be a little issue for some, especially if you are someone like me, you might look ghastly. Rather than getting that beautiful tan, I look ashy and I mean it. I sometimes need an anti-tan when I stay in the sun for a long time. In such situations, this is one face mask I believe in. So this post is about one of my most favourite anti-tan face masks which really works. The face mask has other amazing benefits too. I will be listing the benefits of the ingredients used at the end, so you have an idea.

Mix all the ingredients together to form a paste. You can add lime juice too if you wish. Apply this mask on your face and neck and leave it for 10-15 minutes. After that rinse it off.

You can make your rice flour by grinding rice at home. I have mentioned a rice flour that you can get online in case you are lazy or don’t want any mess. But I make rice flour at home and suggest you do the same.

My review of the soap and glory wish upon a jar

thebeautymascot/soapandglorywishuponajar

This product was initially a collagen day cream and later they changed the formula and now it is a night cream. The packaging of Wish upon a jar is dope! I mean, seriously just look at it! It comes in a silver spherical tub, which looks like a ball, a sparkling one! The most difficult thing about this kind of packaging is that you cannot click a beautiful photo of the product without your image in it 😛

But I seriously love the packaging. This can be the perfect Christmas gift too. The night cream has a very luxurious texture, thick and rich. The texture of this cream makes it a great night cream especially during winters when my skin feels dry. Normally my skin feels super dry and stretchy during winter and if you live in UAE you know what I am talking about. But I must admit this year is a bit different, at least for now. This cream leaves my skin so smooth and soft. I also wake up with soft and supple skin.

thebeautymascot/soap and glory wish upon a jar

Moisturisation this cream gives is brilliant. I am sure this night cream will moisturise even the driest skin but not in a greasy manner. My skin is combination, more towards the oily side, and since it works for my skin, I think it will work for oily skin too. I have used this cream during summer season also, so I know. But the texture of this cream always made me feel it is great for winter. But summer or winter, my skin didn’t feel greasy and I absolutely had no breakouts. And at this point let me tell you, this cream claims to be for all skin types.

One thing which is not so pleasant about this cream is that it gives a feeling that something is on your face, not a really heavy feeling but still you know something is there. The smell of this cream I thought wasn’t good. But I know people who love the smell and say it’s chocolate orange. But I dislike the scent, gives me the feeling of a cheap face cream.

Where I have a problem with it is, actually I don’t a problem, but I am not sure if the claims of vanishing wrinkles and lifting your skin are true. But maybe it is because my skin doesn’t really have those issues. Maybe people with aged skin than mine might really have benefits with it. It claims to contain such amazing anti-aging components which are difficult to spell (please check the ingredient list and the product claim section).

Even though this is an anti-aging cream and I really am not sure if it delivers what it claims in that aspect, I love the results. It makes my skin soft, supple, radiant and brightened. What else can ask for in a night cream So I am really happy. I think the quantity you get it less. But nonetheless, I love Wish upon a jar from Soap and Glory.

Overall

In love with

  • The silver sphere in which it comes.
  • The texture is so thick and rich.
  • Contains some really amazing anti-aging ingredients.
  • Really moisturises my skin and it lasts the whole night.
  • Leaves my skin softer, smoother, radiant and brighter.
  • Not greasy and does not break out my skin.

Not in love with

  • Quantity is less.
  • The scent.

Wish upon a jar is a great night cream as it moisturises my skin even during winters when my skin is dry, dull and stretchy and it leaves my skin softer, smoother, brighter and more radiant. I am not sure about erasing wrinkles or firming of the skin but I am really happy with what it gives.  I am rating it 4/5. Even though I believe wish upon a jar by soap and glory will be best for matured skin, I think others with younger skin also can give it a try as the results are amazing.

Have you guys tried Wish upon a jar? Which night cream are you currently using? Please leave a comment below as I would love to hear from you.
