This review will be on the Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream.
About the product:
An age-delay face cream proven to visibly reduce fine lines and firm the skin*—and enriched with kombucha (black tea ferment) to help soften, smooth, and enhance luster.
What it is formulated to do:
Black Tea Age-Delay Cream with advanced antioxidants is proven to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and firm, smooth, and retexturize the skin. Black tea ferment is an advanced antioxidant that helps to defend against damaging free radicals while softening, smoothing, and enhancing luster. The formula is further enriched with lychee seed extract, which helps maintain elasticity and smoothness; polysaccharides, which help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines; and blackberry leaf extract, a protective antioxidant that helps to maintain a firm, supple complexion. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
My Experience with Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream:
With me approaching my mid-20s, I have been extensively trying out new products in the anti-aging skin care section. I have heard tons about the brand “Fresh” which is sold at Sephora. I have tried their “Rose” range, but this is my first time trying something from their “Black Tea” range.
Packaging: I do not like the tub packaging, which not only exposes the product to air, it’s unhygienic too.
Texture: This cream has a whipped, rich, creamy consistency. If you turn the tub upside down, the cream will not slide out and that’s how thick it is! It is not too dense and feels like a hybrid between a gel and a cream.
Feel on skin and Results: It spreads easily into the skin and you need just the tiniest bit per application. This cream feels super greasy upon application and does not get completely absorbed into the skin no matter how little you use it. I feel like it sits on the skin for a long time, making it difficult to use makeup on top if you are using this during day time. It does make a good night cream due to its super-rich hydrating texture.
I feel this cream is best suited for those with dry to very dry skin. I have normal to dry skin and even then I don’t like how greasy and heavy it feels on my skin. If I drag my fingers onto my face, I get a greasy residue on them. It is very hydrating and gets rid of my dry patches in one night and makes my skin feel soft and supple, but I also feel it clogs my pores. I have seen some break-outs on my skin if I use this every night, so I use it only as an intensive hydrating overnight treatment.
It does leave some shine on your skin post application. My skin feels soft, supple and hydrated after use, but the benefits cease there. I have not seen any reduction in my fine lines or improvement in the texture of my skin.
Fragrance: This cream does smell very herbal. It is not overpowering but it is not my favorite scent.
Overall, I will not recommend this product. I don’t like the heavy greasy texture even though I have dry skin. I don’t like how it does not get absorbed into my skin and sits on the top, clogging pores and breaking my skin out. This product is a bit no-no for oily skin and at this price, it’s definitely a skip!
Pros of Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Cream:
Makes my skin soft and supple.
Works as an overnight intensive hydrating treatment.
Having happy and healthy hair is something everyone desires. For this purpose, hair care is an important part of your daily routine. Taking the utmost care of your hair can not be stressed enough. And the first step in this is choosing the proper hair care products. Apart from this, a good hair spa works wonders. Trichup Keratin Shampoo and Hair Mask by Vasu Health Care are two amazing hair care products for a perfect salon-like hair treatment at home.
Hair damage is a common problem especially with the seasonal changes. It is something that we all hate and want to fight real bad. On the verge of trying and testing multiple shampoos, I came across Trichup shampoo from Vasu care and thought to give it a shot. After all, what could go wrong when your hair damage is already at its peak? So, I gave this shampoo a try. The packaging is quite simple with all the ingredients listed on it. Since the shampoo claims that it is free from SLES and Parabens, I restored my faith in it and started trying. After two weeks of trying Trichup shampoo, I am ready to review this product and share its pros and cons with my audience.
My Personal View on ‘Trichup Keratin Shampoo’
Trichup Keratin Shampoo is fortified with Keratin protein, which forms a layer over the hair replacing the lost Keratin and rebuilds strength, returns elasticity and reduces breakage. It also contains suitable conditioners to leave hair healthy, shiny and frizz-free. This is a super moisturizing shampoo that leaves your hair feeling smooth and conditioned. It keeps oil at bay and all suits hair types, from curly to chemically treated. Also, the smoothing results last until you wash our hair again.
Let’s Have A Look At Its Pros And Cons Now-
Good for all hair types Gentle formula Comes with inbuilt conditioner
My Personal View on ‘Trichup Keratin Hot Oil Treatment Hair Mask Review’
The other product from the same brand that I use for my hair care is Trichup Hot Oil Treatment Hair Mask. This mask too is enriched with keratin and can help with repairing damages. Formula, again has no Parabens and Silicones, which is obviously a good thing for your hair.
With keratin as its major ingredient, this hair mask can be used for deep conditioning at home. You can avail the benefits of a hair spa with this product. All you need to do is wash your hair, apply this hair mask evenly on hair strands and then wrap in a hot towel. Rinse thoroughly after 10-15 minutes. This process locks in the smoothness in your hair.
Made for the convenience of users, this is one of the best hair masks that can be used at home.
Let’s Have A Look At Its Pros And Cons Now-
Easy to use Thick consistency Easy to spread formula Deeply conditions hair Cons
Comes in a big tub pack which makes the usage gross.
So this was all about these products. Given below is my real time experience!
The formula of both shampoo and mask is super smooth and can be applied without any hassle. There is no special step involved while using these products. It is simple hair care and nothing else. My hair was really frizzy when I used these products and after using them I actually noticed few changes like less tangles, smoother hair and shinier hair. Also, it didn’t take a lot of time to use these products. The entire application process is on YouTube. You can check it there.

Although it should be promoted as a time-limited immunity booster with a certain number of weeks to begin working. This should be disclosed or marketed so that the general public understands and may confidently eat it.
To be honest, before ever using lip masks, I didn’t even know that they were a thing. What could a lip mask do that lip balms couldn’t?
Well, lip balms are great but lip masks are better. If you often suffer from chapped lips that bleed and blister… you might consider getting a lip mask.
The most famous lip mask out there and the one that introduced me to the world of special lip care would be the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Berry (pronounced ‘la-nej’). I’ve also used lip sheet masks before too and they don’t work as well as the ones that come in a lot.
The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is vitamin-rich and hydration-locking. It is formulated with its Berry Mix Complex™ which includes berry extracts, antioxidants and hyaluronic acids to help soften, repair and plump your lips while you sleep.
The texture of this lip mask is smooth and velvety — not waxy like a lip balm or sticky like a lip gloss either. It’s the perfect texture that won’t easily rub off while you sleep and is silky enough if you would like to wear it in the day, like a lip balm (which is what most people do).
Whenever I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask at night, in the morning my lips honestly feel brand new. It’s the weirdest feeling how smooth they feel and you can physically tell that a moisture barrier has formed to lock in hydration. This is due to the exclusive Moisture WrapTM technology which builds a protective veil over your lips to keep them moisturized overnight. If you also have any dead and peeling skin on your lips, the lip mask would also soften it so that you can easily exfoliate the dead skin away the next morning.
I’m telling you that you have to try it! It also comes in other amazing scents such as Vanilla, Grapefruit, Apple Lime, and Mint Choc but my favorite is the original Berry… it seriously smells so good I could eat it. It also comes with the most adorable lip spatula so that you can hygienically apply the product to your lips!
Reminder: Remember to only wear lip balm that has SPF (go check if yours does!) — the skin on your lips need sun protection too 🙂
Its Available in India now! You can buy it from Amazon or Nykaa

Do you know the right order to apply skincare products?
The struggle is real. One can really find it exhausting to balance between the necessary skincare products for the ageing skin. And even if you’re just entering your twenties, skincare is still crucial to determine your skin health as you old.
Is it that you have been using skincare products and still suffering from an issue you are unable to figure out? Break outs, acne, pimples, zits, dullness? Despite the products being all high end, good products?
The answer is you might not be following the right order to apply skincare products. So, maybe let’s just end the vagueness and confusion of what to apply and how to apply, here’s the right order to apply skincare products.
▶ Cleanser ▶ Toner ▶ Serums ▶ Eye creams ▶ Spot Treatments ▶ Moisturizer ▶ Face Oil ▶ Lip Care
Some Product Suggestions
The first step on the right order of applying skincare products is cleanser for a very good reason. I almost always skipped this step because I always thought using a cleanser gave my skin a really hard time. But that’s so not true. Makeup wipes can make the task quicker but will never completely clean the makeup off your skin like it really should. If you have combination skin, use a crème or gel-based cleanser. For oily skin, stick to gel or foam-based cleansers and dry skin folks get yourself some crème-based cleansers that don’t make your skin feel any rougher after washing.

Once upon a, time toners were filled with alcoholic derivatives that could easily stir up a hell lot of irritation for your skin. Today, toners are nothing but gentle catalysts that can speed up the whole process of absorbing the products you apply after this. On your clean, dry skin, a good hydrating toner for all skin type can really make all the evident difference. If you have acne use a toner that includes BHA (beta hydroxy acid—like salicylic acid—for oily skin) or AHA (alpha hydroxy acid—like glycolic acid or lactic acid—for dry skin), which work to unclog pores, prevent breakouts, and dissolve blackheads over time.

If you’re from the Instagram generation, you know a lot of “Beauty Influencers” talking about the importance of serums. Possibility is you have some right now with you, clueless what to really do with them. Basically, a concoction of necessary things which are more concentrated are nothing but serums. There are various kinds of serums, some have Vitamin C while others might have a higher concentration of Hyaluronic acid. If you have normal skin type, it is suggested to use a serum which is Vitamin C concentrate but during the night you can either use a retinol serum or a hydrating serum.

I am 25 and I just started using eye creams about a month back or so. Eye creams can do wonders if used right. The right order of applying skincare products follow the lightest first and heaviest last which means you need to apply your eye cream before you apply all your heavy-duty products. The best way is to tap a small amount under your eye and over your eyelids gently. The skin around this area is delicate hence you would like to be gentle with the application under your eye.

Now, this is a step you can skip if your skin is complete free of any acne or blemishes. But if you do have any pimples, acne or dark spots, spot treatment is for you. While many say that it is best to add spot treatment to your skincare routine in the night because that’s when the repair is full power but using spot treatment in the day can speed up the process. For pimples you can get yourself Benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria—which can be used for the usual whiteheads—and salicylic acid, which is capable of dissolving oil and skin cells (you may use it for little clogged pores and inflamed bumps). For acne and dark spots, two things which can help are hydroquinone (which is a skin-bleaching ingredient that works pretty much quickly, but tends to be irritating) or niacinamide (which is vitamin B3, which gently brightens marks over time).

In our list of the right order of applying skincare products now comes Moisturizer. We all use it pretty much but when you follow the steps, your moisturizer is capable of locking all the preceding product you just applied. In the day, if you have dry to combination skin, a light or a gel-based moisturizer should keep you happy. In the night, you can either use an anti-ageing moisturizer (if you’re approaching your 30’s) or just use the morning one in the night too.

I have combination skin and if I apply any face oil in the day, possibility is everything will come off with sweat and me doing the incessant wiping. However, face oils can actually seal in all the products on your face so everything can bind and work together. Face oils can make your skincare routine work more efficiently without feeling any loss of product.

So, whatever you applied right now is for regeneration or hydration or healing. Sunscreen is the absolute step which will protect your skin from pre-mature ageing and harmful rays of sun. The minimum SPF that you need especially during the day is SPF 30 and even on cloudy days you must not skip this step no matter what.

I know, reading through the right order of applying skincare products must feel daunting but honestly this will ensure your skin is taken care of on all good and bad days.
This all-natural gel can fight acne, prevent dark spots, and even slow down the signs of aging.
“Aloe vera is a cactus-like plant known for its healing and medicinal properties,” says Joel Schlessinger, MD, Omaha-based board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon. “Its stems store water, creating a clear, gel-like substance in the leaves, which contains vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids.” The gel from aloe has been used throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as burns, frostbite, psoriasis, and cold sores, research shows.
So does all the hype surrounding aloe vera gel mean you should make it a permanent fixture in your skin care routine? While research is currently limited on the benefits of aloe vera gel specifically, it does contain many well-studied vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins C and E, leading experts to believe that it may offer an assist to the products already in your arsenal.

Your hair fall will be restricted and dandruff will be reduced by the application of this aloe vera gel. Like the skin, your hair can be benefitted as well. Irrespective of weather conditions, it can be used throughout the year. No matter what your skin is, it will suit you.
