Best of Decoding Beauty – July 2017 Roundup

We are already a few days into August, and I thought I will do a quick round up of what has been happening in Decoding Beauty in July. Also, since this is the first roundup post of this blog, I have included a few older posts too.

In May, I had joined swimming. And though there are numerous benefits of it, it did damage my skin and hair to a great extent. From my experience, I compiled a list of skin and hair care for swimmers.

Himalaya Herbals
I love personal care products by Himalaya. They are inexpensive and a lot of them work really well. Here are a few products that I tried –
Himalaya Foot Care Cream
Himalaya Jasmine Body Butter
Himalaya Under Eye Cream 

The Face Shop Sheet Masks
This is the first brand of sheet masks I have tried and have totally enjoyed using them. A couple of them worked really well for me and a couple did not. You can read the reviews here-
The Face Shop Shea Butter Mask
The Face Shop Lotus Mask
The Face Shop Calendula Mask

The Fab Bag – Beauty Subscription
I am an on-off subscriber to Fab Bag. The reason is because I end up with a whole lot of products waiting to be used. This June again I had subscribed and received some amazing products in the last two bags. I am still waiting for this month’s bag. Hope it is as good.

Skin Care
It’s important to use a good anti aging cream in your daily routine once you’re over 25 years of age. I tried Olay Total Effects SPF 15 and loved it. Do you know they have so many variants of day cream in this range? Do read the post to find out.
