Those who are still not clear let me reveal this act's none other than makeup .

My Take on Nelf Colossal lip definer

After lipsticks I was eyeing to get a perfect lip definer and as a result got fortunate enough to get my self Nelf USA colossal lip definer in hot red colour .These lip definers comes in a attractive  silver black pen styled packaging .Being a pen packaged product I just love it as it doesn't result in wastage and will always stay safe and sturdy ,An ideal travel friendly product I must say .Another best part of nelf USA lip  definer is it's shelf life. It will last for 36 months ie 3 years so you don't have to finish it without any Hurry and worry of expiry of it .

In terms of texture this lip definer is very creamy and to be true I was hoping not to get a hard one as I read about many liners whose texture was mentioned to be  pretty rough. But on receipt of this Lip definer I was just amazed . This beauty is very soft and glides amazingly on the lips. It can be used as a lip liner for lipsticks as well as a base; I normally use it as a base due to the lovely matte effect.
This lip definer  does not settle in fine lines and has a very good pigmentation .It has a very light noted fragrance that fades away with time . It instantly brightens up any skin tone and lasts on the lips for  hours with light snacks.

I guess This is a shade that will suit any outfit and it is pretty affordable too, so I will tell all of you to try this out. It is available at their online portal .So what are you waiting for ? Rush to their website to order one for yourself :)

My Experience

The best part of Johara products is their  Parabens , Sulphate , Formaldehyde and Synthetic dye free product formulation. Each and every product of their range is chemical free and naturally enriched which makes them one of its kind .It's been few months since I started using their products and I must say these are value for money and gives desired results .Touchwood my experience with Johara products has been great so far and to continue the legacy here is present to you my experience with Johara Amaranthus & Amazon Lily Body Lotion  and Instant Radiance Face Scrub .

Johara Amaranthus & Amazon Lily Body Lotion comes in a Green colour Cardboard box ,Whose packaging is very much attractive and reminds one of eco friendliness .It contains all the details of the products around it briefly with Johara logo in place .Like other body lotion available in market , This body lotion comes in a white tube packaging .

On opening the cap of it , you will come across a mild fragrance of lilies .This fragrance lingers only for a while than fades away after few moments of application .

Interms of Color and texture this body lotion is of white color with liquid consistency .Unlike other body lotions available in the market , This Body Lotion from Johara has more of a liquid form ..I mean its first appearance will be similar to creamy but trust me it's not .I would say this is one of the finest body lotions in terms of texture so far. It has  non-sticky and non greasy formulation that doesn't let your skin get stick with the clothes. ( Personally I just hate this feel, When my body lotion sticks my skin with the clothes) .And if I talk about application of this product ..than you require lesser quantity of it and when this Lotion touches your skin , Your skin will get slightl cooling sensation and with just two strokes ...yes with two strokes this lotion will be absorbed into your skin that too effortlessly. It feels so light that for a second you will forget that you have applied anything and within next coming moments you will see  your skin getting moisturised and healthy looking from within .(This is what happened to me , as I have a very dry skin during winters ) .You won't feel any residue or leftover on your skin surface which makes me go gaga over this product This product from Johara is seriously amazing , in these years of my evolution this is one of the rarest and bestest product I have come across and now swear by it whole heartily .

Now let me take you through Johara Instant Radiance Face Scrub .This beauty comes in Dark pink colour packaging again within a pink colour cardbox it has a tube packaging. On opening this you will come across a very interesting blended fragrance of walnut and lemon peel .

It's not at all overpowering but feels amazing .. I wish this fragrance could have stayed much longer on application . In terms of colour and texture this scrub has a light cream colour with some micro  walnut particals  .It has a creamy consistency which at first seems like a usual face pack .

It feels soft on application and leaves a very soothing fragrance for a while .I usually use it once in a week and after its application and removal my skin feels smoother and softer .It gives a radiant and clear looking skin which I just love to keep :)

Overall these two beauties from Johara are again a milestone products that you cannot afford to miss this winter .So if you wish to enjoy your winters truly and don't want to hide yourself from sun ..than these two products from Johara are a must for you .I would rate these 5/5 without any second thoughts .

My Experience

This Derma Sunshine Blend morning cream comes in a luxurious tub packaging .That appears to be of glass but is of good quality plastic material .on unscrewing the cap , you will come across a blended soothing fragrance of milk and aloevera that sneaks its wayout from inner lid of the tub .
Interms of Colour and consistency this cream is of light yellow colour due to turmeric I believe and has a very soft texture into it.

When I read that this product helps in treating pore size and improves skin texture .I decided to give to my mom and let her share her experience .So what me and my mom felt is that this product delivers what it claims .My mum skin was suffering from dullness and darkspots since log and with age pores of the skin were also enlarged but with its very first application my mum felt the difference .With each passing day her skin is getting better would be too early to comment on pore enlarge issues but interms of skin texture and dark spots , Her condition has improved .

So far this product proved to be a miraculous one for her .We will definitely going to rebuy it ..I understand for some price could be concern ..but instead of going for surgeries , botox or any other form of treatment ..this one seems more affordable and convenient to me .
