My skin gets very dehydrated and dry during winter, so I bought VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night Cream to give my skin what it needs. I finished the tub within two and a half months after using it every night. And I will say that this night cream really succeeded in keeping my skin hydrated and well nourished throughout the harsh winter season. It is indeed a good winter night cream. Now that summer is here, I won’t be using it anymore. But I am sure to start using it when the winter comes back again. I had a very good winter because of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night Cream.
Suitable for winter
Does not irritate skin
Prevents skin darkening
Contains artficial fragrance
My hair changes with the weather and temperature. During winter, it is at its best state. But during summer? Polar opposite. To combat that, I got L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum and have been using it for a month now.
L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum comes in an opaque pearly white plastic bottle with a red flip-open cap. The cap shuts securely, so there is no spillage of the product. It perfectly dispenses the correct amount of the serum. And it has a mild fragrance that lasts for about 2 hours.
The serum is non-sticky, and it easily spreads on my hair. I used this hair serum both on damp and dry hair, and it works well in both ways. When I use this serum, it helps in detangling hair and reduces frizz to a certain extent. It does impart healthy shine without making my hair greasy as it claims.
The frizz is controlled till the next wash. The only fault I can find about it is that It does not help flyaways in any way. Other than that, I think for a price it comes at, it is a very satisfying serum.
Can be used both on damp and dry hair
Does not manage flyaways
These lip crayons are not twistable. They come with their own sharpeners. I love that there are ten different shades and I love all of them. Not only can you find some classic colors but there are also some new funky colors as well. While there is no ingredients list, it’s no secret that they contain jojoba and olive oil. These two oils get deep into the lips. I feel the change! My lips used to be chapped all the time. I would constantly bite off the dried skin. But once I started using these crayons, I’ve noticed that my lips are more moisturized. These lip crayons stay for about 3 hours without a touch-up. If you are eating a sandwich or a burger, then you might need a touch-up. It doubles up as a lip liner as well which is quite brilliant, if you ask me. All in all, its pretty great and I’m really happy with it.
Makes your lips look healthy
No ingredients list
Stays for only three hours
When I think about Ayurvedic products, my mind pictures an aged woman living in a hut in the forest and working with all the herbs under golden sunlight, making an ageless ointment. That thought itself draws me towards using Ayurvedic products.
Vicco Turmeric skin cream is one of the Ayurvedic products I adore. Here is the reason why.
The cream comes in a tube with a screw cap (like a tube of toothpaste). The entire packaging screams Ayurveda, turmeric, and sandalwood oil, i.e., orange and yellow color. The texture of the cream is thick, so it needs a little effort to blend evenly. I’m not very fond of the smell but since I am aware that no artificial aroma is added, I’m OK with it. I think it is one of the products that hasn’t changed at all with time. Classic indeed.
My skin before and after using this product has a lot of difference, but unfortunately, I didn’t click any picture of the differences. Regardless, let me tell you about my experience.
It started with my acne scars. Though my acne has disappeared with time, the scars remain, and they were stubborn. Only this cream had the formula to remove them completely. Then, my skin started looking radiant. I am sure it is because of the presence of turmeric. Since I don’t have major skin problems, I don’t expect much, but this cream provides satisfactory results.
My routine with this cream is, every night before I go to bed, I apply it after face wash. I don’t wear it during the daytime because if I do, the entire universe will look at me for bringing in the ‘weird’ smell to the atmosphere. Moreover, I have oily skin, so it does not work for me during the daytime, though it gives a matte finish.

It was a fuss for me to pluck an aloe vera leaf from my flower pot and then clean and cut its skin to finally apply it on my face. Sometimes, I had to wait for the plant to grow when I had plucked off all its leaves. While I was on a search for an alternative, I came across Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel. It comes in a very easy and hygienic packaging. The tube is transparent, and the lid is concealed securely to avoid any spillage Its open flip cap allows for convenient use. The formula is gel-based and its texture blends well. It takes a little time to soak in and settle. Just a small amount covers the whole face.
This Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel contains 90% aloe vera, and it works more or less like aloe vera itself. This tube of aloe vera gel has simplified my skincare regime. I can skip all the extra steps and all I have to do is apply the gel directly from the tube. It has been a month since I have been using this Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel. The problems I had with dull skin, major acne, and blemishes has subsided to a great extent. I have also noticed that after consistent use of aloe vera on my skin, my skin’s texture looks more refined and youthful.
Before I go to bed, I wash my face and apply the gel all over it. I let it dry for some time before going to bed. The next morning I wash it off with cold water. The goodness of the gel stays with me throughout the day, and I repeat the same steps every night.
Although I’m grateful that this tube reduces the fuss, I would still say that I don’t like the added color and fragrance in the formula. Aloe vera gel is supposed to be transparent and I’m sure it doesn’t have any smell, so why should this product make such changes? All this extra addition takes away the naturalness of the product. It would have scored 5 out of 5 if not for these two faults.

Hygienic and convenient packaging

Relaxes the skin muscles

When I first bought this cream, I was very impressed with its packaging. The white, gold, and electric blue on the product enhance the elegant vibe. About three weeks ago, I bought the 18 g cream to try it out.
The cream comes in a tube with a screw lid and a tiny hole to dispense the formula. The packaging is hygienic and travel-friendly. The formula is the lightest shade of pink and is light in texture. On application, the cream felt great on my skin. It blends well and gets easily absorbed. After use, my skin feels oil-free and soft to touch. It also cleanses my skin and gives a glow without any of that excess oil.
From the first application, I started loving this cream because it controlled my oily skin very well. It gave me a matte look with a hint of glow. Even though it gives a matte finish, it hydrates my skin and makes it feel healthy. I used it every day after face wash, and with consistent use, I have noticed my tan is gone, any new pimples dry off within two days, and the blemishes I had have lightened.
One of the best things about this cream is the presence of UV filters, so it works best as a day cream. It has the frangrance of flowers, and the smell lingers for a while after application, which I love. Like I said earlier, being a skeptical person and second-guessing everything, I bought the small packet for a trial. Now that it has been three weeks and I have witnessed the changes, I’m going to go ahead and purchase the bigger packet as I see myself sticking to this product for a while.
Although it works well for me, it might not be the same for dry skin types as it tends to remove the oil from your face and give a matte finish. But that can be dealt with by applying a moisturizer.

My hair was nice and thick, but once I shifted to another state, the hair fall began. Heavy hair fall. Parachute Oil helped decrease the hair fall substantially. My hair is now thick and black, and it has shine as well. My hair has become strong, and I have almost no split ends. The oil has also reduced dryness. I also use it to massage my skin every other week. Within weeks, my skin has become supple and smooth.

Getting to work every day means having to be out in the sun. It made my hair brittle, dry and lifeless. We all want our hair to be voluminous. After using the oil, I could start to see improvement in my hair’s quality within two weeks. The oil has helped reduce my hair fall. It reduced the brittleness and dullness as well. My hair is now black and glossy. It is also shiny with great volume. Leave the oil overnight for best results.
