Now that you have read and understood how were sunscreens made and to read what the SPF numbers stand for, Lets take it further on by knowing what the values of PA +++++ OR Boot Star Rating ***** mean on your Sunscreen tubes.
The UVB protection rating which signifies the percentage of protection the sunscreen gives from the UVB rays is widely known in two types of ratings in this concept the European rating which is the Boot Star ***** symbolised & the Japanese rating which is the PA+++++ Rating. Each of these Stars * or Plus + Symbols mean 20% protection from UVB, so if there are 5 Stars there is a whole 100% protection from UVB.
Now that we have this part of the concept cleared. It’s time to discuss my favourite Sunscreens available in the market today.

I been so busy lately managing my businesses and I’m struggling to get things going but in the mean time, I have a rule that once or twice every week I have a small pamper session at home after work. It does’nt consist of a lot as I’m really tired when I get back from work. So basically I’ll make some hot mocha put on an episode of how I met your mother or grey’s anatomy or castle or white collar depending on what my mood is like. Then I would put on a face mask and paint my nails while watching an episode or two or maybe three 😛 sitting like a bean bag on the couch. LOL!
So Yesterday I had one of these pamper sessions and I realised I do a lot of multi-masking and it would be fun to share what my favourite mask combinations are.
Combination 1 For Dull, Oily and Congested Skin Days
I like to use the Origins Charcoal Mask on my nose to cleanse pores I sometimes switch that with the Glam Glow Clearing Mask and pull the white heads out, and the Glam Glow Flashmud Brightening Mask (Orange) on the rest of my face, It works like a exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and instantly make my skin feel smoother.
For the days I feel a bit more lazy to put on a mask and wash it off. And My eyes feel tired and baggy. I use the Sephora Green Tea Eye mask. Green tea is an antioxidant that quickly revives your tired looking eyes and also gives it a lift. This mask is a sheet mask so application and removal is no problem #lazygirlsbestfriend 😀
or YOU CAN PAIR IT UP WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED MASKS TO DO MORE A FANCY MULTIMASKING!
Combination 3 – Sensitive and acne days
You know those days when your skin is so sensitive that a charcoal mask isn’t an option and it also has few papules (Red pus filled pimples). I use the Skeyndor Normalising Mask while dotting my face with the Mario Badescu drying lotion on the papules.
I know a lot of you guys love the nourishing masks I do too, when the weather is slightly chilled and my skin tends to go on the drier side so I’m listing a few of my favourite masks that are more hydrating.
Model co Instant Hydra Glow Miracle Mask
I hope you guys liked this post and yes if it looks like I have a full shelf of masks yes I do and I love masks a lot. Please comment below if you’d like me to try a mask that you like or review any face mask, I would love to. <3

The market is flooding with cleansing oils offering all kinds of cleansing oils calming, soothing, restoring, resurfacing but do they really work or are they just an expensive addition to your night time routine?
Lets clear the FAQs first
What is a cleansing oil? How does it work?
Cleansing oil is an OIL (DUHHH!!), yes but it is also made to cleanse in a way that it does not feel like the oil in your kitchen or where ever you keep oils other then your kitchen. 😛
Cleansing oils are designed to melt of all the make up and debris on your face additionally protecting your skin as it does not strip off the natural skin barrier and natural oils of the skin as a traditional cleanser would do.
How do you use it?
Take a few pumps on your hand and gently apply it all over your dry face, allow a minute or two for the oil to break down all your make up and debris. Massage it on your face. Now adding water on your palms keep massaging. You will notice the oil has now started foaming up or changing colour after which completely rinse the face with plain water.
The first time I came across a cleansing oil was in my beauty therapy days when we used Dermalogica’s Pre Cleanse on our clients. I was a little hesistant on trying oils on faces specially when I used to suffer from oily skin and cystic acne. After which I got a few samples of Shu Uemura’s cleansing oils (they have a wide range of these oils). I started researching more about them and tried them out for myself. I have tried many, so far I have loved some and not loved some.
THE BIG QUESTION- DOES IT WORK??
Yes they do and no matter if you have an oily or a dry skin, cleansing oils just balance your natural skin oils while completely melting of the dirt and debris from the skin. Oils have always been a great way of removing make up and now we have something that is oil but as soon as it is mixed with water it becomes foamy to give you the feel of a cleanser. Two jobs in one (I know the phrase that goes with it but I just hate to use it)
Honestly, not every brand’s cleansing oil is the same, but I’m here to talk to you about the good ones that really feel nice and remove all of my make up and make my skin feeling soft and completely clean. Here’s a list from my most favourite to my least favourite, these are my top favs so far.
Shu Uemura High Performance Cleansing Oil A$42
Clinique take the day off cleansing oil A$45
Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil A$22 (much cheaper than the other oils but works equally well.)
Please like & comment if cleansing oils have worked well for you and which brand cleansing oil do you really enjoy using, I’d really love to know.
