Review Time #1 – Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser

Skin Type- •Combination to Oily •Sensitive Skin – No

Price – 2799Rs /- (approx.)

Product Description:

Clinically proven to rapidly reduce size and redness of stubborn acne in just 1 day.
Formulate with maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide, the acne medicine dermatologists recommend for clearer skin without a prescription.

My Experience with Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser:

The rapid clear range comes with the orange detailing which I like personally as it looks summery to me.

The texture of the cleanser is weird. It is like a slippery cream that refuses to get applied on the damp skin. The quantity required is more compared to regular cleansers is a con in my opinion as using it on a daily basis will finish it up pretty soon. There is no pungent smell to the product thankfully; I was expecting some chemical fragrance but it smells pretty faint and agreeable.

This really works well on oily and acne prone skin…. You will be able to see the difference in reducing pimples and zits.

But if you have dry skin already you might feel an uncomfortable drying sensation which might end up irritating the all the more. Also it feels irritating when it gets near the eyes, which is a huge con in my opinion; for me it a love hate product!

Pros of Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser:

• Handy packaging.
• Lathers well.
• Not pungent smelling.
• Refreshes skin.
• Effective.
• Reduces acne spots.

Cons of Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser:

• Quantity required is more to get desired lather.
• Irritates eyes if it accidentally gets in.
• Not available in India.
• Might feel stretchy initially.
• Burns a little when used for the first 2-3 times.

Repurchase- I use this just around “that time of the month”, so this will last me long. I will definitely repurchase when I finish this.
Recommend – Yes, just check that you are not allergic to benzoyl peroxide.

Book Review – The Spy by Paulo Coelho

In The Spy, Paulo Coelho shares an intriguing set of incidents related to Margaretha Geertruida “Margreet” MacLeod, popularly known by the stage name Mata Hari.

She was a Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan. She was convicted of being a spy for Germany during World War I.

If want to know more detailing about her: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/magazine/2017/11-12/mata-hari-history-killing/

Beauty of this book:
The beauty of this book by Coelho is that it revolves around a real character with real incidents with a touch of fiction.

TBH, I never knew who Mata Hari was before I got my hands on this book, Perhaps, that is one of the main reasons which developed more interest in me to stay glued to the book other than the captivating style of writing the author possess.

The story begins with this not a very positive connotation, “Her only crime was to be an independent woman.”
This gives a subtle underlying message of a woman who has lived on her own terms and has not been treated well by the society.

Story the book tells:

The first few paragraphs in it tell you about the challenges Mata Hari had faced from being penniless when she arrived in Paris to being an affluent dancer within a few months.

A couple of pages in the book only talk about the luxury items she used to carry in her suitcases while she used to travel from one part of the country to another for her dance shows.

She was as bewitching a courtesan as she was a dancer and ‘the era’s richest and most powerful men’ dreamed about her and some of them also made up to her.

The scene moves to World War I, when the country was only suspicious about each other’s activities, Mata Hari’s lifestyle came to question.
She was arrested on accusation charges of espionage. Later, they describe about the letter exchanges between the protagonist and her lawyer. She was alleged to be a spy agent for France and Germany.

A little part of the story also traverses through her thoughts between writing letters and waiting for the final verdict. She discloses various events of her life from being sexually abused by her school principle to receiving materialist favors against nooky to her other encounters with men and eventually self-realization of how wasteful her life had been.

It’s that time of the book🥺
She’s been projected to be guilty of the choices she made and her heart full of remorse and repentance except considering working as a spy when she says, “I am a woman who was born at the wrong time and nothing can be done to fix this. I don’t know if the future will remember me, but if it does, may it never see me as a victim, but as someone who moved forward with courage, fearlessly paying the price she had to pay.”


And now the truth is, If it would had not been for the love of author I enjoy reading, I wouldn’t have picked up this book. I’m sure it impacts differently to different people as those who would have known about her history and grew in Holland, Paris hearing about her in stories would be able to relate better.

That is all I got to cover for the review of this book, which, I had read long ago. I hope I was able to give you a deep glimpse of the story🌈


Pages : 186 (You will love the extra fits in the book also the packaging and labeling)

My obsession with the Vampire Diaries🧛‍♀💜

Note⚠
I haven’t mentioned any detailing of the show, so do not worry of the spoilers.

Okay… I know that Vampire Diaries must be an too old topic for some of you to have a discussion over, but… Dude? Do we really need “specific” time period to talk about this show🥺🧡

The Vampire Diaries will forever be a favorite of mine. I still can’t believe that after watching the very first episode, I would get addicted to it and would still be so addicted!

My favorite Characters🥺💗

• Forever Damon💜

In reality, you will find all the characters very attractive, eventually this show is all about falling in love with the cast and crew.

But, Damon is something whole of a mood, he have a depth, when he is sad or hurt, he acts out.

He is sarcastic and will make you laugh😂💜

The way he loves Elena will make you crave for such man in your lives too….🥺💜

• Klaus

Woof, he is fire🔥💥, this character will make you hate him and you’ll eventually be threatened to watch him and his moves.

But, when it comes to his and Caroline’s little secretive sparkling love story, your heart will get all melted🥺❣️

• Bonnie

I love her courage and her friendship with Damon (Boman)

She will get all your attention to her magic tricks…and the way she defeats her enemies💗

Did you know?
The crow that is seen in the pilot is the reference to Damon, who is in the books had the power to transform into a crow. The producers said they didn’t run with that because they didn’t want to give him too many powers too quickly and leave no room for growth.

Some of my favorite moments from the series🥺💜

I hope you enjoyed these little moments from the series, there were many more but I couldn’t fit all of them as the blog would have got very lengthier😂. Tell me about your favorite shows or the parts from this series….😍🌈

If want to watch this series, it is available on Amazon Prime, just to make it a little more easier I’m attaching the link below👇😇 https://app.primevideo.com/detail?gti=amzn1.dv.gti.2aac3cc5-f169-9aaa-00b5-c3030b37560c&ref_=atv_dp_share_seas&r=web
