Saeed Ghani Multani Mud Mask With Lavender - Review

Mud masks are very famous for oily and acne prone skin, so today let’s check out what Saeed Ghani Multani Mud mask has to offer.



Product Claims

Saeed Ghani Mutani Mud is a unique blend of natural ingredients that has no chemicals. No side effects on any type of skin. Successfully removes spots, wrinkles, pimples and blemishes. Its constant use gives your face a natural glow and will make you more beautiful. Suitable for all ages.


How To Use?

Take two table spoons of Multani mud, mix them in rose water to make a paste and then apply on face. Remove after drying. For dry skin take a little quantity of mud, fresh milk, honey, rose water and make a paste. Apply on face, wash when dry.

Saeed Ghani Multani Mud Mask With Lavender


What Do I Think?

First of all, you DO NOT need two table spoons of mud to make a paste, only a half or three-quarters of a TEA spoon to cover your entire face and neck is enough (trust me!). The product comes sealed in a thin foil-like packet which is put inside the card paper pack. Just a regular packaging there, nothing fancy. The product itself is a finely ground, dry powder. I have combination skin (oily in the T-zone and normal in other areas) which is sensitive too, and using this mask with only rose water left me with severe itching and redness when I had used it for the first time. However, paste only made in milk works well for me. Therefore, I suggest you test this mask on your arm before you put it on face in case you have sensitive skin. Smear the paste onto your face and neck evenly and let it dry. It dries in about 25 – 30 minutes, while it does so I feel a little tickling here and there which is most probably due to Lavender in the mask (sensitive skin, remember?) but that is perfectly fine for me as it does not leave any kind of redness like it did when I used rose water with the mask.

Now moving over to its performance. This mask works good to remove dirt and sebum leaving my face fresh and clean. The oil on my T-zone does not return for 4 – 5 hours straight after using it and I also feel acne marks lightening (when I have any). I use it once a week as the weather where I live is now becoming pleasant with each passing day, but you can also use it more than once a week depending upon your skin.

Luscious Ultra Shine Lip Gloss In “Flutter” - Review and Swatches!

Hello ladies,

Today I am sharing a review with you girls on one of the very famous products by Luscious cosmetics that is their Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in the shade Flutter.


Product Claims

An array of gorgeous super-shiny shades that add a glistening splash of color with a delicious fruity scent.Coat lips with a shot of ultra-glam which goes on smooth and fast with a silky brush applicator that keeps you in perfect control.

What Do I Think?

It comes in a transparent cylindrical tube like most lip glosses with 4 grams of product and has this lovely white on black jewel design printed on the cap which instantly makes it look more appealing. The name is embossed in black over it and hasn’t faded away like such prints tend to do. It has a thin brush applicator much like the standard lip brushes produced by most brands. I find it suitable to use for the consistency and formula of this product.

The first thing I noticed when I opened it was the relatively thick consistency and obvious stickiness of the product. Like most people I loathe the sticky sensation any lip product may give to my lips and I thought this was going to be a huge problem. However, it does not feel so heavy or uncomfortable on the lips. It has a sweet strong fragrance that doesn’t really fade away which some people might not like. It is noticeably shimmery in the tube but after application the fine shimmer seems to tone down a bit and actually gives a brilliant shiny, glossy, glamorous look to the lips. Even though the colour is not a dark shade, it seems to do pretty well on its own whenever I use it for an evening look. The staying power is hardly one and a half to two hours, if no eating or drinking is involved, which comes as no surprise considering it’s a lip gloss. Even with all the cons, this is one of my favourite lip glosses ever because it’s such a flattering colour for any neutral look and has this unique shine to it.

Price

PKR 465

Availability

Luscious cosmetics are a local brand that can be bought from major departmental stores throughout Pakistan and also from their official website. I bought this from just4girls.pk

Pros

Pretty packaging with an appropriate brush applicator
Affordable

Cons

Has a sticky formula
People who are averse to scented lip products may not like it
Not for people who don’t prefer shimmer in their lip gloss

My Rating

2/5
