SAMPLE REVIEW | FRESH ROSE FACE MASK

I got a deluxe sample of the Fresh Rose Mask with a Sephora order last year and finally got around to using it. I used it everyday, for a week and did not see any considerable difference.

I was pretty disappointed actually, Don't get me wrong it retails for $62 and for me it did not excel in all that it claims to do. Honestly, my $12 rose water does better soothing my irritated skin and smells way better than this. It smells like rotten roses.

Not. Impressed. Fresh.

For $62 I expect a product to be much better. I will definitely not repurchase.

Importance of Cyber Security for Bloggers

Growing up south Asian my parents wasn’t very thrilled on my decision to become a beauty blogger. Sharing pictures and personal information online is still a touchy subject if you’re raised in an Asian background. Thankfully, the times are changing and I see most of my fellow South Asian sisters getting in to beauty blogging/vlogging, conquering the blog/vlog sphere which makes me ecstatic.

How important is personal cyber security if you’re a beauty blogger or a blogger in general?
In the past few years, I’ve come to understand the importance of maintaining an online presence as a blogger. Which helps immensely to maintain a relationship with your audience, sharing your personal information with brands etc.

Is personal security of bloggers as important as celebrities? Celebrities and public figures are always at the threat of being hacked. Does that threat apply to bloggers as well? Yes, it does. Last week, I was notified for suspected login attempt by Facebook and Gmail. I’m a blogger with just over 60K followers combined all my social media accounts, the threat of cyber security compromise increases as your follower count grows.

In August, Instagram alerted its high-profile users that their information may be compromised in a recent security breach which resulted in Instagram account of actor and singer Selena Gomez’s Instagram profile being hacked. Throughout the month, Instagram accounts of high profiled Instagram uses were shut down and some reported suspicious activity.

To those who are unaware of “what really happens when you get hacked”
Individuals get hold of your personal data; your e-mail, contact information or access to your social media. You may get threatened to expose your personal data or lose all access to your accounts.

How can you prevent being a target of cyber threats?
A good cyber security software. Use hard to guess passwords. Unique passwords to every account. Two factor authentications.
If you’re looking for a reliable cyber security software, I recommend you Rubica. Rubica eliminates the complexity of cyber security and privacy by taking care of it for you behind the scene. It’s like having your own team of cyber ops to keep your personal data safe from cybercrimes, Rubina keeps you safe from attempts by criminals to collects your personal information and use it for financial gain.

How to get Rubica?

Simply download the Rubica app in your computers, smart phones and tablets.

Brilliant | Loveheart Lip Mask & Loveheart Lip Gel Patch


Brilliant Loveheart Lip Mask & Brilliant Loveheart Lip Gel Patch Review

 Brilliant Loveheart Lip Mask and Lip Gel Patch duo are here to save your dry and chapped lips.  The Lip Mask is a thick white paste which can be applied all over your lips and left for about 2-3mins. Then rinse or wiped with a wet cloth. 

The Lip mask mask contains AHA which helps in gentle exfoliation and might help lighten your lips in the long run.and is enriched with Macadamia seed oil which helps recover tired and chapped lips and activates skin, minerals, proteins and vitamins.
I can't comment on the lightening aspects but I did notice that my lips were lot smoother than it was before. I use it every two weeks cause my lips are easily irritated and I do not want over exfoliate.




The Brilliant Loveheart gel patch is a gel type mask that adheres to your lip which is to be used after the Brilliant Loveheart Lip Mask to sooth and moisturize.I left the gel patch on for about 20-30 mins and sealed my lips with some Rosebud Salve.





I absolutely adore the Brilliant lip duo. My lips were noticeably brighter and a whole lot smoother after 
just one use and the results last for 2-3days. I'd higly recoomend it to anyone who wants to 

  I absolutely loved this Lip duo. My lips were noticeably brighter and super soft even the next day. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to lighten their lips temporarily.

Brilliant Loveheart products can be purchased from BBcosmetic

PROMISE ORGANICS | NOURISHING COCONUT MILK FACIAL LOTION with Hibiscus

Hey guys!

Few months ago I cashed in my ipsy points  for the @promiseorganic coconut facial lotion. I love products that contain coconut, if you asked why, it's cause they smell divine and this lotion did not disappoint. I'm so glad I picked up two.



The Promise Organics Nourishing Coconut Milk Facial Lotion claims to brighten and revitalize skin even though I didn't notice any brightening my face did feel smoother and this is a great mixing medium for my TO VitaminC  it's very liquidy great for those with oily skin. It absorbs quickly with no sticky residue. Super lightweight that can be used in your A and PM routine or under your makeup.This performs well when sealed with an occlusive because of its light texture it might not be provide the necessary moisture the skin needs when used alone.

UNIK | BLACK SNAIL RESTORE SERUM

Hi Errthangchic readers!

I was approached by UNIQUE4U to partake in a reviewing contest and I was one of the winners. As my gift I was sent the UNIK BLACK SNAIL RESTORE SERUM. They also sent me three samples to try out and a 10% off coupon code which I could share with my readers.

Unique4u ships worldwide with no minimum purchase and carries an array of brands such as Be the skin, Inta, Zymogen, Mizon and many others.



UNIK is a new skincare brand that has been introduced to the Korean skincare market, the abbreviation, UNIK stands for Unique Natural Ingredients Know-how.



I was super glad that I was sent a snail serum cause I was running out of my usual snail cream and I didn't want to wait for three weeks to be reunited with my snail bae. Honestly, snail is the best thing that has happened to me. It has helped with acne, it has helped me with my over exfoliated skin, it has helped with my dull skin and many more. Best part is anyone can use snail slime, unless you're allergic to snail mucin. It suits all skin types. Cool, right?



UNIK BLACK SNAIL RESTORE SERUM



Product Description;
the UNIK Black Snail Restore Serum sounds pretty impressive.It claims that it can help restore and smooth skin with 70% black snail water and five super foods. It nourishes, lifts, whitens and helps with wrinkle care.

Ingredients;



Personal Experience;
It's a thick, watery almost sticky white serum that I use in my A.M and P.M routine. This is the very first snail serum I have ever used, I have used many snail essences I have never crossed path with a snail serum. Until now. I cannot comment on its wrinkle lifting properties or whitening since I have been using it for less than two weeks although, it does nourish and hydrate my skin.

Best suited for;
All skin types

Price;
$15

How important is Cybersecurity?

Hey Guys!
Total deviation from my usual makeup posts, today, I decided to write up on the importance Cybersecurity.

Is cyber security important? is your phone/ computer protected from billions of viruses? can your gadget survive another ' ransomeware' attack?

To those of who are wondering, what is meant by cybersecurity is ; according to techtarget.com "Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context,security includes both cybersecurity and physicalsecurity.

My parents bought our very first computer when I was about 5yrs old, back when Dial-up internet was a thing. As the oldest, my brother was in charge of the computer and he made sure that all our computers were virus protected and 10years later he still checks if my antivirus is updated.That's my story.In 2017, Do you actually bother about antivirus protection? I hope so. 

If you haven't already, I recommend that you give AVG a chance.

AVG is a free antivirus & tuneup for PC, Mac and Android. It's Compatible with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP SP3 and helps protect your PC, phone and tablet from harmful viruses, malware, spyware, scamware and text messages and keep your personal data safe.

THE ORDINARY | NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1%

Today, I'll be reviewing The Ordinary Niancinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum. Well, it's not technically marketed as a serum but, I use it as a serum, after my essences, so I prefer to refer to it as a serum.

I placed an ASOS order couple of months ago and bought a few of The Ordinary products, ASOS is the only economical option to get Ordinary products shipped to Asia cause placing a direct order from the Deciem website incurs you a  $9.99 - 14.99 shipping cost.
I'm indeed late to the Ordinary party since it's been in the skincare market for an over a year and every blogger has reviewed them. I was a bit skeptical to try it out cause it was super cheap and honestly, I just didn't want to spend on a gimmicky product that's all hype and no results.

I was in search of a Niacinamide serum since I was running out of my beloved Shark Sauce, which retails for $29 plus shipping. Niacinamide aka Vitamin B3 is known for it's brightening and sebum controlling and said to be great for oily and acne prone skin. I don't suffer from acne but I do anyway have very oily skin due to a damaged moisture barrier, which I discovered recently ( details later :D). Due to financial restrictions and availability of a cheap alternative, I decided to try The Ordinary Niacianmide 10% + Zinc 1% and I'm glad I did. Here's why!







Product Description ; 
It's a High-strength vitamin and mineral blemish formula that contains Vitamin B3 to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion.Balances visible sebum activity.Apply serum to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.


Ingredients ;



Personal Experience ;
The best solution for brightening and sebum control for my easily sun burnt oily skin. Though most of the reviewers complain that the niacinamide caused break outs, for me it has been nothing but a pleasant experience. The ordinary niacinamide has brightened my face, my breakouts heal faster and my t zone less oily since I started using the niancinamide 10%. This has been a staple in my PM routine since very first day. Will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Best suited for ;
oily, clog prone acne prone skin

Price ; £5.00

LADYKIN | AFFINICTIC SNAIL CREAM

Let me introduce you'll to THE most annoying product packaging today. Honestly, this is the worst tub of moisturizer that has ever happened to me.


LADYKIN AFFINICTIC SNAIL CREAM


Snail slime has been my greatest obsession since discovering Korean Beauty, It totally cured my acne, healed my skin and it has also healed my occasional burns. Snail secretions supposedly contain great anti aging and anti wrinkling properties, which with daily use could lead to smoother and glowing skin.

I cannot comment on anti aging as I'm still on my early 20's but, I do love slathering snail secretion on my face LOL.


Product Description?
The Ladykin Affinictic snail cream contains 80% snail filtrate extract which has been known to heal skin that has suffered loss of elasticity and has been damaged from external environmental factors.

Personal Experience ; 
Ladykin affinictic snail cream is a super moisturizing light weight lotion that's ideal for oily or clog prone skin. This left my face super soft and smooth like no other lotion.

Best suited for; Oily, Clog prone skin

Price; $ 16-22

Where to buy; eBay, Amazon

Rating;  5/5 Will not repurchase

SAMPLE REVIEW | NUBIAN HERITAGE COCONUT & PAPAYA BODY LOTION

I got a sample of the Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body lotion the other day, a sachet which is good enough for 2-3 uses.This is the first time I tried any Nubian Heritage products and I'm sorry to say, I was not impressed.

First, the product claims to soften and soothe.I tried this on my heavily dried out knuckles and it didn't do much. One Positive factor about this body lotion that got me immediately hooked is that, it smells so heavenly. Coconut-y vanilla.

It smells so good. Hands down the best smelling body lotion I've ever used!! I kid you not! Is the smell alone worth to purchase a full size body lotion that retails for $12.99?

You decide.
