Crazy Cravings- Eye Crayons & my mini cutie Haul!

Hi all,

You all might have understood makeup for me is defining & highlighting my eyes.
I tried my hands on eye shadows but for a people like me who lacks patience (time too), you hardly have 10 mins to get ready when your boys are already SET-TO-GO. so find these pencils handy and also love the effect they give...I am CRAZY for Eye pencils, Khols or Crayons.

Be it Retractable or Sharpening ones
Be it Slim or Jumbo chubby ones
Be it Matte or Shimmery ones
Be it Funky or Metallic ones
Be it Single or Dual ones
I Love them all!!! Now, you will say I am CRAZY!!
You dont have to be perfect (unlike with Eye Shadows) while using them and would hardly mess up. More over they are MULTI-PURPOSE....use them as Liner, Kajal (on waterline), as eye definer, eye shadow base...its all up to you.

Patanjali ALOE VERA gel and a Mini Facial at Home

Hi Girls!!

What do you eat?
Where do you stay?
What is your Age?
These questions answers a lot about your Wellness and Beauty. So a nutritious balanced diet and that too on time is vital for your body needs and obviously shows up on your face too. Climate and local weather does have a significant impact on your health and reflects immediately on your skin. And Age...hormonal changes during various stages of your age drastically changes you and your health.
I had the Driest skin till my mid twenties and after that it suddenly transformed to extremely oily one. I never saw a single acne or pimple all my teens but now...i keep looking for solutions and remedies for them.
Now diet i wont disclose that....
But in all these some where your remedies and skin care routine plays an important role which can never be denied.
  • Effective Cleansing with toning and moisturising
  •  Exfoliation at regular intervals
  • Continued use of Sun protection
  • Over night care for better healing and repairing
  • Massaging for better blood circulation
  • last but not least using safe and chemical free skin care products (as much as possible).
One of those options is Patanjali - although i dont think that they completely chemical free but still quite safe & a lot more effective. I have been using one their most popular product- Patanjali Aloevera Gel

Hi All, 

Taming dry and frizzy hairs is one of the most irritating tasks. it becomes more taxing when you don't get desired results from the least the claimed ones!!! I have tried all possible options from Mehndi pack to deep conditioning, hair masks, leave-ins and what not, but could not find 100% satisfaction.

Oriflame Sweden MILK & HONEY Gold Smoothing Sugar HG scrub

Hi Girls!!!
Hope you all had a great weekend but mine was not that great as i met an accident while on my trip to CHORAL (picnic spot at Indore ouskirts). Was really excited to be there as it is a river bank spot. Although it has not much rained here in M.P. but arrival of monsoon itself is enough to excite you, isn't it???
As soon as i stepped there on those rocks amidst water, got slipped  due to water algae and fell off and got severe injuries on leg and back and since then, Oh God..
Anyways i am back with my new post on Oriflame MILK & HONEY Gold Smoothing Sugar Scrub from +Oriflame India.
its been more than 6 months i am using this scrub so i guess this is the best time to share my views on this.

Loreal Paris SMOOTH INTENSE- Instant Smoothing Serum for Unmanageable Dry Hair

Can you imagine a Beautiful woman without hair......its hard to believe. 
However beautiful a women is, she has to have hairs as smooth tresses are inevitable for beauty...aren't they?
Although i have long pretty curly hairs but always keep struggling BAD HAIR Days as i have extremely dry and frizzy hairs. Although i love my curls but wish them to be manageable and frizz-less.
My search leads me trying some reliable brands at times ( as im quite scared to try every other brand which comes my way).One of those reliable brand is LOREAL. 
Last year while travelling i was looking for a temporary solution to tame my flying tresses...i got this Loreal Paris SMOOTH INTENSE- Instant Smoothing Serum for Unmanageable Dry Hair. Name itself was intriguing for me and the SA gave good references too so just thought of trying. Since then i had a love-hate relationship with this. 
Lets see how-

VLCC Active Light Range- for Men

A herbal Brand...
Skin Care for Men....
Fairness Range....
Al these 3 in one are sure to have 'lightening' combination.

But have you ever thought that did our Father or Grandfather ever used any face cream or hair gel???
Even every cosmetic ad, cosmetic care shop were meant to cater needs of only- WOMEN. SALON for MEN was just a fad for my father but Fashion for my Brother. Somewhere between lies my BOY. But the way these brands are targeting Men for Skin care products, they will be forced to try at least by Blogger WAG's like us....
In India we have a custom of applying UBTAN to bride & groom during wedding pre-prep days. Those were the only days when a MEN were made to care for their skin.
Even my Husband is no exception, in my serious attempts to make him little conscious about skin care & all, i keep trying some reliable brands.
This time it was VLCC Men Active Light Fairness Face Scrub & Moisturiser.

From THE NATURE's CO Bag.....Barley Volumising Hair Cleanser

When it came to cosmetics or personal care buys, Initially my purchase decisions were usually based on brands availability, popularity and some reliable advice. Once when one of my close relatives told me that she just loves DOVE shampoo as that worked absolutely wonderful on her curly frizzy hairs, i instantly made up my mind to give it a try.
But i guess it usually happens with all of us and we never bother about the content list, Product segmentation or positioning, nor cared whether the company has environment friendly policy or not. SLES, Parabens....what all difference do they make. Should we insist on being Natural, Vegan? Animal Products or Animal Testing - is what we should care for.

While browsing through net for information on various products i intended to use, i became aware of all this. Thats how i came across products like The Nature's Co.
I had subscribed for their Beauty Box which you can also subscribe at 495 INR per month here.
Today i will be reviewing one of the products i received in my June subscription- Barley Volumising Hair Cleanser. Check out my June Box Review here.

Fairness Facial with GARNIER Light 3 in 1

Fairness..not again!!!
This word really hits me. We Indians have been gifted with a nice complexion which highlights our facial features so well yet so obsessed with this word. Malaika Arora, with her chiseled bone structure and her warm complexion accentuating her facial features, proves that. 
I am a big fan of Nandita from 'Earth', 'Ramchand Pakistani'; She is so beautiful and attractive. I simple adore her not only for her acting skills but the way she is associated with the cause - 
'Why fair is lovely'. Read her site here
i would love to associate with such a cause. 

Now you will say then why you opted for and reviewing a so called 'fairness' product. Well i purchased it since i was looking for good scrub and i saw this '3 in 1' tag. So thought of trying this. Actually i skip the info i don't wanna see so skipped that fairness claim mentioned here too.
So lets see- it is about GARNIER Fairness Facial LIGHT 3 in 1.

Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Orange Blossom Body Wash review

Bathing for just a daily ritual but for some its an experience, time alone for yourself, pamper time. I have seen people with strange bathing habits..People enjoying their hidden talents- Bathroom singers, Bathroom Thinkers, Men who can pamper themselves away from catching eyes- Boys too have right to pamper themselves.
My brother had this habit of spending hours in bathroom and when he is out...whole of the Washroom was fragrant as if he was the only one to BATHE properly and we poor people who never understood the very significance of BEAUTY BATHS.....
My mother was fond of & used to hoard toilet luxuries,best available brands in india. She never used a separate deo or mist or perfumes. it was her way...
But lately i have also started with trying new washes, splashes and in my last haul i got this- Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Orange Blossom Body Wash. its Packaging attracted me.

Patanjali Mogra Body Cleanser: Review

Hi all,

YOGA and AYURVEDA- as soon as you hear these words the first image which flashes in our minds is "Baba Ramdev" who has revived our age long belief and culture of Yoga & Ayurveda.
I have been a yoga believer and have inherited affinity to every thing which is either herbal or Ayurvedic from my grandparents. My maternal Grandparents were freedom fighters and were Yoga masters along with their firm beliefs in Ayurveda. They always insisted and made sure that we use 'Indian' products.
Thats why i keep reverting to products like Aroma, VLCC, Himalaya etc.

Patanjali Mogra Body Cleanser Review

Patanjali is one of the most popular brands which has established itself in a very short period of time. Not only because its associated with Baba Ramdev but also as they deliver and give desired results that too with out any side effects.
So today I am reviewing Patanjali Mogra Body Cleanser.
