White Tuberose Facial Masque review

I’ve been noticing some dark spots and blemishes on my face and I thought it was high-time I did something about it instead of letting them fade on their own. I can’t help but steer towards Spa Ceylon products because they do have a range of products for the face, made with white jasmine as well as white tuberose. I decided to go with the White Tuberose Facial Masque because I do not treat my face as often as I think I should and this would give me the excuse to do so when needed.

A creamy formula with 100% pure precious tuberose oil to gently lighten, brighten and illuminate skin. Fine natural clays combine with deep-acting white minerals to cleanse, purify and refresh skin, removing excess oil. Arnica, rice bran, and natural vitamins help control excessive oil, white licorice, green tea, watercress and bearberry help inhibit formation of dark cells. Virgin coconut oil and olive help lighten marks and discolourations, instantly increasing skin radiance. The mystical aroma of tuberose helps uplift and brighten the senses.

Now, as far as brightening and lightening my face, I’m not too concerned about that. All I want is my blemishes and dark spots to fade. I trust the brand so much so I gave it a try over two weeks ago. To use, one must cleanse the skin first and then apply a thick layer of the masque all over the face and neck. I didn’t give my neck much thought but applied more on my dark and blemished areas. Leave it on for ten minutes and then wet lightly. As you do so, gently massage the face in circular motions and finally wash off. I realized this actually took some time to do because the masque is quite thick itself. All in all, it took me a good five minutes to apply the masque on my face, ten minutes to leave it on, and close to another five to massage and wash off. I’m yet to see some results but I do love the aroma which does uplift and brighten the senses. I feel like I’m in a happy bubble every time I use it.

On the back of the jar it says to use the White Tuberose Face Treatment Oil after using the masque but I’m not a huge oil-on-the-face fan so I have not been following this instruction. I don’t know if that’s why I’ve not seen results in the two weeks that I have been using it but if over a month, I’ll probably let it go or pair it with the treatment oil.

Saturday night out look

My look

With Japanese on the menu for our Saturday night out, I decided to keep my look minimalistic. 

My knee length black and white kurta was something I purchased a while back from India but had only worn it on a few occasions. I paired it with a black pair of leggings and chiffon shawl. It’s got pretty bead work down the front as can be see in the picture above.  The sleeves have a bit of red and bit morw bead work that give it an interesting look. On my feet are a casual pair of black kitten heels I got as a gift.

Happy Sunday all! 🙂

Elevating consciousness

I have to admit, this year’s Colombo Fashion Week did introduce some very talented new designers. Yasisurie Kiribandara was one of them.

Her collection featured a selection of curve cut and shapes dresses, and was inspired by the creative force of God who is the greatest creator. Her uses include sacred geometrical symbols; pure cotton with a satin finish allows her designs to be modern yet effortless. These motifs have been created with the use of laser cut technology and it gives it that added edge and chicness.

She started her business a few years ago and says that starting something on her own was the best decision she’s ever made. As quite the devotional being, Yasisurie has worked many jobs in the past in the fashion industry. Her experiences have taken her to multiple countries, allowed her space to converse with fashion designers, including Ann Taylor and Calvin Klein, and also given her the driving force to come up with creative ideas of her own.

She started her own design company under the name ‘Oneera’ in July 2013. It is a high-end label that caters to the young and fashionable who look for detailed, chic clothing with a modern and global touch. It was her new found freedom and understanding of the greater source of power that gave birth to her collection showcased at Fashion Week earlier this year. She went with geometric symbols and patterns, dimensions that were mathematical and ancient symbols that she admits elevate the consciousness of the person wearing the garment.
