Because I visited a derma a couple of weeks ago who asked me not to use any cosmetics in two months, my June empties is a bit tiny, with most of the products being either hair or body products.

I used four sheet masks within the first two weeks of the month (before I visited the derma and most of them worked well on my severly irritated skin). I have so many sheet masks in my stash right now and I can’t wait to use them up once my skin gets cleared.

Things I finished up in June:

  • Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Bija: Used this sheet mask twice (two separate masks of course) during this prolonged irritated situation on my skin and it worked great both times. Review:
  • Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Tea Tree: It’s a repurchase as well. The first time I used it, I was just starting to suffer from PMS break out and it worked like miracle. This time it didn’t work that well.
  • Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask BHA: It worked wonder and made my bumps calm and small. Review:
  • Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask: Absolutely soothing, calming and a very clean ingredient list. Review::
  • L’Oreal Professional Density Advanced Shampoo: My sister and I both inherited our mom’s fine flat hair. However this worked on my hair real bad unlike my sister who swears by it.
  • Matrix Opti Care smooth Straight Conditioner: I don’t know why I bought this in the first place, it’s meant to be used on straightened hair while I have naturally straight hair. Anyway, I ended up liking it.
  • Seasoul CC Cream: As much as I liked it, I did not finish it completely as I swear by cushion compacts. Anyway it was maybe half way finished when it crossed the expiry date and I didn’t have the heart to throw it away without giving it a standing ovation. Review:
  • Moha Shower Gel: A refreshing shower gel containing neem. I really liked this tiny baby.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide Creamy Wash 4%: My derma prescribed it and I finished up 1 tube already.
  • Royal Indulgence Lodhrahi Face Wash: I cannot even express my love for it with mere words. I ordered a sample that was meant to last 2 usages, however, since I used it with honey, it lasted me 3 usages, each time with increasing effectiveness. Even though my doctor asked me to stay away from cosmetics, it did not seem like one since it’s claimed to be Ayurvedic. I daringly used it and my bumps and acnes reduced dramatically each time. I’m really looking forward to buy the full-sized product.
  • Fuschia Charcoal Face & Body Scrub: I never used it on my face as the granules were too big, but it’s ended up being one of my favourite body scrubs. Review:
  • Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream: Really, really, really liked this sample that I got from Daisy Skin Fix along with my purchase. It really did calm down my angry skin during my trip to Bangalore.
  • Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream: No extra ordinary result on my irritation but I still liked it a lot.
  • Berrisom CC Cream: I haven’t touched makeup in like 3 months (ever since my skin got irritated) but I took it with me to my last trip to Bangalore and it made me look like a human rather than zombie, flawlessly hiding my severely irritated skin.
  • Forest Essnetial Kumkumadi Teenage Night Cream: Not really a teenager but liked it anyway.

So that’s everything I finished up this month. I think my next month’s empty will be much shorter since am not using any other products apart from my prescription right now. Hopefully my sacrifice will come to work….

  1. Yaay ! I could read this post
    Can you plz let us know a little more abt Benzoyl Peroxide Creamy Wash – what is it for ?
    Since I have problematic skin , maybe it’ll be useful

    1. Benzoyl Peroxide is known to treat acne. However a lot of people complain of itchiness if used as a cream. As per my understanding, a face wash containing Benzoyl Peroxide is the best way to use benzoyl peroxide. My derma prescribed me a benzoyle peroxide wash twice a day, emolene cream (a well known moisturizer to people who has ever visited a derma) twice and acnesol gel once a day along with an oral med to be taken 3 times a week. He said my acne and spots will clear in 2 months. It’s just been 2 weeks and the only thing that improved is the itchiness. I couldn’t convince even this derma that they are not acne, they are infection (bumps). All the meds are for acne and there’s been no improvement except some bumps turned into cystic acne which regrow even if popped.Am not saying the meds aren’t good, but was my condition even acne??! It’s been only two weeks and half part of my brain says I should wait a few more days and the other half says that if my spots are meant to be cleared in 2 months maybe my bumps and acnes should start showing signs of reduction? I’m planning to visit my usual doctor (general MD) and ask (beg) him for anti-biotics as I can’t take this skin condition any more, but am planning to keep on using this creamy wash and in that case, I will review it in a month maybe?

  2. Lodhrahi brand is completly new to me…thanks for the intro
    Also nice to see your blog up & running

    1. The brand name is called Royal Indulgance, developed by the site Stylecraze I guess. It worked amazing. Hopefully I’ll purchase a full sized product soon and will review it. A bit pricey though…

  3. Kitna sara sheet masks 😊😊
    Shampoo k sath yehi hai, person to person alag result deta hai
    Lodrahi face wash ka review read karke hi uski value pata lag gai thi, ab aapko bhi us se itna pyaar hau hai 😊

    1. 😀 I usually use even more sheet masks a month 😀 This time there are a few because my derma said ‘no cosmetic’ 😀
