LOVE YOURSELF - TRUSELF ORGANICS CLEAR SKIN KIT REVIEW


At 25, I am still struggling with major acne issues. So when I stumbled upon this brand called Truself Organics, I knew I had to give this one a shot. Their stuff is organic, cruelty free and is made using the most natural products you can ever find so how can one go wrong with this?! Since I live in Canada, I had to place an order for this and the day it arrived, I was overjoyed with excitement!




I started with the cleanser. Now, I have to say when I first used it I wasn't very impressed because it doesn't have the best fragrance. Honestly, I don't care about the smell of products anymore as long as I see it's doing the job right. It is very drying and I found this on the first day itself. It kind of reminds me of a hand soap like the ones you get at Bath N Body Works - the foaming ones to be precise. Again, a little bit goes a long way. Don't get disheartened by the size of the bottle trust me one pump is enough for a single use.




The detoxifying mask is what I was most excited about. I've heard and seen so many people rave about this for so long now. It comes in a powder form and you need to mix it with a little bit of water to make a paste like formula. They say you can leave it on for about 30 minutes but I leave it on until the mask is fully dry so say about 20 minutes. The first time I used this, it left my skin super dry. For someone who already has very dry skin, this can be a little bit of a downer. On the bright side, it does leave your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. So I'd give a 9/10 for this mask!

Have you tried their products yet? If yes, leave me a comment below with your experience with their products!

AU REVOIR 2015, BIENVENUE 2016 

2016 is here and you know what happens in the beginning! Resolutions! The month of January is all about setting new resolutions and working towards executing them. How far you go on that front is a different story altogether though. In my case, I've always had the things that top my list ready at the end of every year but by December(of the new year) I kind of lose interest or worse, even forget about the resolution itself. Things can go from bad to worse in no time for me you see! But it's alright to lose focus midway because let's be honest, you get so caught up with your own life and things change as you move forward. Till then, keep making resolutions and breaking 'em!


One of my major goals this year is to become a Vegan. I've tried on and off to be a Vegan for almost a year now but either travel, my erratic work schedule or my bunch of foodie friends ruin it for me. Now if you read the previous line, you would know how big I am on excuses. This brings me to my next goal. I am going to try to nag less and try to be a compassionate person. Life is a roller coaster ride and you gotta live and cherish every moment - be it good or bad. 2015 was not the best year but it was not the worst. Losing people from your life is not easy and it's worse when you are helpless and cannot be by their side. We had two deaths in the family - both unexpected. As for me, things did not go as planned - work wise. I had to struggle with a lot of personal issues too but what's life without problems?! On the bright side, I met some wonderful people this year who I hung out with and still am. I got to travel to so many wonderful places this year like Toronto, Vancouver, Banff, Jasper. I couldn't travel outside Canada much but Canada has so many places to see. Out of all these places, Vancouver was the BEST. I was there for about 3 days but I wished I had stayed longer. Trust me, there were so many places that we missed seeing but I'm definitely going there again soon.

My future posts in this blog are going to be a mix of food, travel, fashion, review posts. If there is anything else that you guys want to see, please let me know in the comments below!
