My Bangalore Haul, Vichy, Faces, Fabindia, Nail Trend, Passion Indulge etc.. long pending post

I always say to myself(Thats what my husband wants me to do)  before stepping out of the house...That I should not peep inside any Health and Glow Store, Fabindia Or Makeup Brand's Standalone store/counters or any supermarket's Personal care Aisle... because 
I become hysterical, over excited and behave very weird....Until I buy something...

Yes there have been moments where I have been litterally dragged out of these stores/ counters :)

Sometimes I might behave little normal when Iam with friends ..Because I dont want them to runaway from me permanently
:) thinking Iam one Wierdo...

Trust me ..If you ask my Dear Husband he will tell you stories...With which you can Watch Shopaholic series Itself :D

Hahaha...Enough for today...

Lets go directly to the haul...
This was totally one such haul...

Ok Got some Vichy  and Faces Products :)





My HG Hand Cream :)
A travel kit :)
and Some Nail Paints (These are from the Relaince )




Any Guesses on Whats inside these Bags?

Love,

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Spa Mask Review

Pregnancy gave me great hair but when lil' doll entered her 5th month... My hair fall phase started....Practically i can say i see about 200 to 300 strands of hair every time i touch my hair...I mean it.. not even a slight exaggeration... Hair is everywhere literally... say in the chair / sofa i sit, car seat, pillow, towel,...Everywhere...



This is the worst phase... Guess all this because i skipped the Vitamin and Iron Supplements that was prescribe for me ...But I dutifully skipped ..Thinking that I am in Pink of my health :D

Ok You might think are these rants related to this review ?
Somewhat  yes..because bad health causes, hair fall, dry hair, dull hair split ends and what not

Also in spite of  all the hair problems i had .. I still Ironed my hair at home :D
 Yes I am soooooooo Very Clever :P
So this Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Products came in right time :)




These products come in Honey coloured packing as well as the product inside :)

Priced at
Shampoo 200 ml @ Rs.200
Conditioner 200 ml @  Rs. 200
Hair Spa Mask 200ml @ Rs 400

Yes It did :)  I am Happy Indeed :)

Ok Let me go  to the Pro and Cons

Pros

Shampoo

The Shampoo Is wonderful ... It smells amazing ... Trust me the lovely fragrance stays for about 2 days :)

My hair was silky, shiny and much more manageable :)

Gave me this squeaky clean effect.. no traces of Oil left :)

Priced reasonable

I love this Press cap actually... i find it good

Attractive packaging :)


Conditioner

Again this smells amazing

silky soft hair

perfect for my kinda hair.



Hair Spa Mask

Smells good... But i found the with the conditioner the fragrance lasted for 2 days but with this for few hours only

the mask is like a creamy gel like consistency

Easy to apply

Made my hair feels really super soft and silky



Cons:

I have no problem with the shampoo...I am going to buy this again once this gets over

Conditioner is good but not great when compared to the Hair Spa  Mask

I don't seem to like the Tub packaging of the Hair Mask.... Its very inconvenient

Other than this seriously i dint find any Problem at all..


I would Give
4.5/ 5 for shampoo
 3.5/ 5 for conditioner and
4/5 for hair spa mask

Do try this Range and you will love it for sure

Love,
Varshini

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Shampoo Review


Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo Review - Entry # 1 By Ishwarya





Introduction:
I straightened my hair 6 months back. My hair had been feeling dry and frizzy and even after a trim, it just wasn't behaving. Prior to this I was using the matrix one and bought both the matching shampoo and conditioner of this range to replace my matrix shampoo which has been giving me some trouble. I was searching for something more hydrating and came across this shampoo and conditioner. I read a lot of good reviews about this Herbal Essences line for dry hair so I decided to try it. 
Let me just tell you guys how much I love this shampoo
What the product claims:
Replenish your beautiful yet dry hair with my formula fused with essential moisturisers and orchid and coconut milk.it leaves hair silky and supple.
Directions for use: Use me: lather up, soak your head, rinse and repeat.
Price and quantity: 150 Rs for 300 ml
Flavour: with a fusion of orchid and coconut milk.
Main Ingredients:
water, ammonium laureth sulphate, citric acid ,sodium chloride, ammonium lauryl sulphate, sodium citrate,dimethiconol,ammoniumxylenesulfonate,fragrance,sodium benzoate,glycol distearate,cocamide mea,cetyl alchohol,disodium edta,coconut oil, vanilla extracts ( full ingredient list mentioned on the bottle )


My experience:
I really like this shampoo! After using it only a few times I was shocked at how great my hair feels! Trust me, it’s amazing. Now my hair has gone from very dry to dry-normal in a couple of months. It feels heaven. Yay!!!
Packaging:
I love the simple and attractive stylish packaging of this shampoo. The bottle is curvy and transparent. It comes in a funky neon bluish bottle with a lime green pop up lid. The bottle is see-through.
Colour & consistency & fragrance
It has a medium consistency (neither too thick nor too runny).it has a nice coconut fragrance. The smell may be heavy for sensitive nose. It has a very light blue colour.


How it works:
This shampoo works well with my hair. Cleans effectively but doesn't strip too much moisture off!
Pros:
·         Smells divine
·         Economical
·         Little amount is enough
·         Easy availability
·         Moisturising
·         Good packaging
·         Makes hair soft
·         Adds shine to hair
·          Smell lasts upto 2 days!

Cons:
·         Weighs down roots
·         Product build up
·         Contains lauryl sulfates which are harsh chemicals
Note: To remove this product build up I am using a solution of apple cider vinegar and water. I rinse my hair with this after shampooing and conditioning.
My Rating: 4.5/5
Recommendation: I recommend this shampoo to all girls who have dry and frizzy hair.
Would I Repurchase:  yes definitely!! It’s my HD shampoo now!! :P :D

ABOUT ME:
I am a graduate in visual communication. I am from Kerala. I am a media savvy. I love reading books and music and I have craving for cute stuffs.
I am very much interested in blogging and just started a new blog

Thanks a lot for this lovely entry Ishwarya .

Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer Review

Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer Review :Entry # 9 by Chandana




 Details:
Skinsurance
For Dry to Normal Skin
Daily use formula with Kaolin & Special Moisturisers

Price: Rs.48 for 30 ml, Rs.78 for 60 ml, Rs.118 for 120 ml

My experience with Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer:
Lacto Calamine is a product that has been in the market for decades. It is a well known product even among the ladies of my mother’s generation.

Package – A plastic bottle with a screw cap. The bottle is green and peach in color where as the cap is navy blue in color. When the screw cap is opened, there is no stopper to the opening to control the flow of the product.
Consistency – The consistency of Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer is just like a thin lotion
Texture – It does not leave an oily texture on the skin. It finishes off with a matte texture on the skin. But spreading it into invisible takes a little time and effort.
Color – The lotion is light peach tint in color.
Moisturizing Power – Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer moisturizes the skin moderately. Though it is specified as suitable for Dry to Normal Skin it is not a rich moisturizer the dry skin will need. It works in soothing the dryness for about 2 hours or so, and then reapplication is again required.

An average product for dry skin. It might suit well for oily skin people. Since it provides light moisturizing it becomes a perfect moisturizer for oily skin.

Rating: 3/5


Pros of Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer:
-          Thin lotion texture.
-          No oily texture on the skin.
-          Provides light moisturizing to the skin.
Cons of Lacto Calamine Aloe Moisturizer:
-          Wide open mouth of the bottle without any stopper.
-          Not a travel friendly package.
-          Not a perfect product for dry skin.
-          Does not provide rich moisturizing that a dry skin will need.

Thanks for this lovely post Chandana

Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream Review

Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream Review: Entry # 8 By Chandana





Claims about Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream: (from Garnier official website)
Is Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-ageing Cream right for me?
Yes, if you need an everyday complete solution that targets the different signs of ageing: wrinkles, fine lines, loss of firmness, skin dryness.

How is it different?
It does more than a classic anti-wrinkle cream: Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-ageing Cream has been designed to reduce wrinkles and put spring and vitality back into your skin, recovering lost firmness and elasticity.


How does it work?
Its formula contains a unique combination of pure natural active ingredients: Ginger, known for its revitalising properties helps boost the natural process of skin's regeneration and reinforces its inner strength. Active essence of cherries, combined with bilberry extract helps firm skin.
The Garnier UltraLift Pro-Retinol formula has a double epidermal action.
    Reduction of fine lines efficacy:95%*
    Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles: 93%*
    *Improvement in the firmness of skin:93%*
    *Intensively moisturizes

Price: Rs.130 for 18 ml


My experience with Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream:
I have always wanted to try an anti ageing cream. Since I had seen many ladies speak about this cream, just decided to give this product a try.
Package: A red colored round bottle with a white plastic cap. The cap has to be twisted up for opening the bottle. Fingers are to be dipped to use the product.
Consistency: A thin texture if you consider it is a cream. It is not a rich cream. The consistency is similar to a lotion. If you tilt the package bottle, the cream will begin to concentrate on the tilted side.
Moisturization: It acts as a very good moisturizer making my skin smooth and well hydrated.
Color: The cream is pure white in color.
Wrinkle Lift action: I have not observed any major changing in the fine lines on my face. I have some wrinkles near my eyes, near the corner of my mouth and also under eye areas. I have used this cream continuously for 6 months. There does not seem to be a huge difference in the skin. The cream just soothes these wrinkled skins and provides good moisturization.

Final conclusion: Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream makes a good moisturizer cream. But it does not help the already present fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Rating: 3/5

Thanks a lot for Lovely Post

Sprouted green gram salad

Sprouted green gram salad: Entry  # 7 by Chandana



 Salad is the easiest eatery that can be prepared without any fire. A good mouth watery salad increases the appetite. This post details about salad prepared from sprouted whole green gram.
Key Ingredients: Half pomegranate, half cucumber, one medium sized carrot, one cup green gram.
Method of preparation:
Sprouted green gram – Soak the green gram in water early in the morning. Leave it soaked in water for the entire day. By late in the evening you will observe that the green gram has absorbed water and is bloated in size. Drain the water completely and allow the green in a closed container overnight. Next morning you will observe sprouted green gram ready for using in the salad preparation.
Step 1 – Chop cucumber into fine pieces. Grate carrot. Open up the pomegranate seeds.
Step 2 – Add one spoon pepper powder, salt and lemon juice according to your taste.
Step 3 – Now add the sprouted green gram to the whole mixture and mix well.
Step 4 – Also add finely chopped coriander leaves.
The preparation is complete. Happy eating.

Thanks for this healthy post Chandana

Elle18 Lip Smoothie Burnt Choco Review

Elle18 Lip Smoothie Burnt Choco Review: Entry # 6 By Megha







What Elle18 claims about Elle18 Lip Smoothie:Deliciously beautiful lips in yummy fruit flavours. Smooth, glossy and super kissable.
Price: Rs.85



My verdict about Elle18 Lip Smoothie:Elle18 Lip Smoothie is a very affordable lip gloss. It is so cheap that even girls who do not earn can easily buy by not burning their parent’s pocket.
Elle18 Lip Smoothie comes in a transparent tube and a black cap. The tube has a slanted nozzle like applicator.
The Elle18 Lip Smoothie texture is just right. No stickiness is observed on the lips. But I feel my lips a little oily, and also the skin around the lips gets the oily texture. That means it bleeds to some extent.
It stays on for about 3 hours. It moisturizes my lips well.
Burnt Choco is a nice brownish nude color. Though it gives color in the hand swatch, it is colorless on the lips. It seems like a colorless shiny gloss on my lips. It gives a mint like tingling feel to the lips initially when applied. Later on the tingling sensation goes off.



Pros of Elle18 Lip Smoothie:- Tube like packaging.
- Very economically priced.
- Stays for 3 hours.
- Easily available.

Cons of Elle18 Lip Smoothie:- Burnt Choco is a colorless gloss on the lips.
- It gives oily texture to my lips.
- The oily thing bleeds to my skin around the lips.
Overall, a good product to try.

Thanks a lot Megha for this lovely product

Love,
Varshini

Jovees Kajal Review

Jovees Kajal Review:  Entry # 5 by Megha



What Jovees claims about Jovees Kajal: 

Jovees Kajal helps to keep eyes healthy, facilitates the growth of lashes and shall help to maintain and improve quality of vision. It contains Triphala, Almond oil, natural carbon and other herbal extracts.

Price: Rs.90



My verdict on Jovees Kajal:

My search for a perfect kajal is not yet over. I buy every new kajal with a hope that it does not come down to my under eye skin. I have now lost hope on all the claims that the brand does for their kajal products.
Jovees kajal is no different. Just as usual smudging every where within one hour of application. Jovees kajal comes in a twist up case like that of a lipstick. It has a transparent plastic cap.
The color of this kajal is very black and makes my eyes bright and bold once applied. 2 - 3 swipes is required to bring a deep black color.
Staying power is not very good. It smudges usually. I once applied on my upper lash line, and smudged like anything. I am not happy with this purchase. When I tried to wash with water, it does not go easily. It creates more panda like eyes.



Pros of Jovees Kajal:- Easy handling twist up case.
- Easily available across all stores.
- Very dark black color is obtained.

Cons of Jovees Kajal:- Smudges around the eyes.
- Staying power is very low.
- Cannot be easily washed.

Have a look at the claims about his product. Very funny, he he he. Would you believe that this Kajal helps in growing of lashes and improve vision? I pity such claims. 

Thanks a lot for this lovely post Megha
