Chemical-free, Hypoallergenic Hair Color!

I was never a fan of hair colors for obvious reasons. Everyone I knew who used hair color always complained about these colors being chemical-laden and how it was damaging their hair. But, because they didn’t want to step out with gray hair, they continued using those harmful hair colors. But, I was not going to give in so easily.

For a few years, I stuck to henna, which I knew was not causing any harm to my hair. But, I was not very satisfied with the results. Last year I came across this Indus Valley Organically Natural Gel Hair Color on an e-commerce website, and I was intrigued with all the claims the product made. Chemical-free, no ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, etc. and how organic and easy to use it was. I read a few reviews and thought of giving it a try.

It’s been a year now, and I cannot imagine going back to henna. This hair color is all anyone can ever need for their graying, damaged hair. This product is only made of natural/organic ingredients that not only color your hair but also prevent hair damage. It also protects hair from sun damage. What more can you ask for?

Talking about the pack, for my shoulder-length hair, it lasts easily for two uses. The quantity is pretty amazing, and it is easy to use the color at home. The pack comes with pretty much everything that you might need - base gel, powder developer, conditioner, spa packs, brush, and gloves. The color lasts on my hair for about 3 to 4 weeks with regular washes. I have no complaints, and I won’t ever need to try anything else. This is a holy grail for my hair!

These products saved my hair!

I used to have really thick and luscious hair. But due to extensive traveling and exposure to pollution, things began to change. I started facing hair fall and my hair became really dry and frizzy. Being a woman, it’s really scary to see handfuls of hair come off your scalp. It really started to worry me.

So, in order to avoid this and to save my hair, I started trying out the best anti-hair fall products available in the market with “exotic” ingredients and even tried some home remedies. But I was surprised when the majority of them gave no results or even if they did, they weren’t long lasting. It made me really hopeless and frustrated at the same time.

It was during this time that I found Vedix while scrolling through facebook. The thing that attracted me towards it was the fact that it was “customized”. It was something new and that really interested me. I went to their site to know more about it. When I was researching I understood that they make products just for my specific hair concerns. I read the reviews and quite a lot of them were positive. It gave a little hope and I thought of giving it a go.

To get started with the process, I took their detailed Dosha Assessment Questionnaire. It was a lengthy questionnaire where they asked me questions not only about my hair but about my body too. These body questions help them create an accurate analysis and suggest the ideal products. The extensive questionnaire just built more trust in me towards the product as it conveyed to me that they took the customization process very seriously.

After completing the questionnaire, I was directed towards the detailed analysis page. The analysis showed me what my disturbed doshas were and why I was facing my hair fall. And according to this analysis, they recommended to me 3 ideal hair care products. They specified the ingredients present in them, their functions and benefits as well as the usage instructions. It was everything that I needed. I must say I was really impressed.

I then went ahead and selected the one month trial pack because after seeing all the products fail, I wasn’t ready to take any more chances and waste my money. I received the products within 3 days of ordering and they were beautifully packaged. I used them religiously as instructed for about 3 weeks and started seeing positive results.

My hair fall started reducing and I could see a natural shine in my hair too. It was an absolute delight to see something finally work on my hair. I am currently using Vedix for the 3rd month now and I don’t think I am going to stop using it anytime soon! I strongly recommend you try these products and you won’t be disappointed.

Does nothing for dandruff

This Patanjali shampoo comes in a white bottle with a purple open-flip cap. The light green consistency of this shampoo is very thick, so just a small amount is required to cover up my scalp and hair. It comes at a very good price and is easily available. The packaging is not sturdy, and it’s kind of bulky, so to take it while traveling is not convenient. It comes in just one size.

I’m not very fond of the herbal smell as I want my hair to smell nice after washing. Apart from that, it does the work of a shampoo very well.

My hair feels clean, and this shampoo manages to control my frizziness very well. The texture is much more manageable than it ever was. Now coming to its claim of being an anti-dandruff cleanser, well, I see no difference. On the day I wash my hair, my dandruff goes away, but on the second day, it comes back again.

This shampoo is good for cleansing. But to cure dandruff, it does nothing. So, Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser is not a permanent solution for dandruff.

Satin Taupe- So glad it worked on me!

I read so many mixed reviews about this shade Satin Taupe that it made me skeptical if it was going to suit me. I loved the shade so much that I didn’t mind buying it, even if it was going to be a waste on me. I love MAC eyeshadows. Everything about them is so perfect, and that is one thing that made me believe that this shade might actually work for me.

So, I bought it. And it did suit me. But it took me a little while to figure out how to actually make it look good on me, instead of making me look black-eyed. The first time I used this shade, I put it all over till the crease (I was trying to pull off a smokey eye) and I terribly failed. I thought it’s not going to suit me. But, I didn’t wanna give up, and I gave it another try.

This time, I did it differently. Instead of putting it everywhere, I blended it with a little beige shade and topped with eyeliner. Guess what? This look was no less than a show stopper. On my eyelid, this color looks more brown and less purple. It’s beautiful!

This satin shade is so amazing - the perfect balance of matte and shimmer and it doesn’t over or under power your look. It’s just perfect. If you also plan on buying this shade, give it a try first and then buy it. You don’t wanna take chances as I did. And do try other shades in MAC’s Satin Eyeshadow range.

A must-have palette for office goers!

I have always loved Lakme products. It feels like they take special care while designing their products, so they all suit Indian women and weather very well. As soon as Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow palette was released, I bought one, and I have been using it since then. I got the shade Desert Rose.

I didn’t have these shades in any of my other palettes, and that’s one reason I chose this combination. It is a tiny plastic packaging that has 4 shades in it and one applicator. There is no mirror, which should have been there. It comes with this tiny sponge applicator, which, honestly, is of no use. You cannot blend the product with this applicator.

Talking about the shades, the consistency is very smooth and silky. They are of powdery texture but feels almost like cream when touched. I always use them with a primer. Otherwise, they tend to fall out, and the lasting power is also not great without primer. The pigmentation is good, and this is my everyday go-to palette for work.

I live for these lipsticks!

I ran out of the only color of lipstick I always used and rushed to a mall to get one more. The salesgirl suggested I try some of the shades from the MAC Matte Lipsticks collection, and I thought to myself, “What if I do find something I like?” and I gave it a shot. Guess what, now I have four favorite shades, all of which I can wear anytime, anywhere.

Yes, these lipsticks are a little on the higher side of the budget, and no, I didn’t buy all the four shades at once. My pocket would never allow that. At that time, I only bought Mehr, which I later realized is a universally admired shade of lipstick and was proud of my choice. For the price I paid, the quantity is pretty good. But, because I use this shade almost every day, I ran out of it pretty quickly.

I love the formulation of these lipsticks. They don’t end up looking like how matte liquid lipsticks look when they are dry, but even then, there is no shine or luster on the lips. It is a proper matte. The best part is that as long as the lipstick is on (for about 4 to 5 hours), my lips do not get dry. It keeps them soft, moisturized, and plump.

Overall, I love Mac Matte Lipsticks. Except for the price they come at, everything about them is so amazing.

Glitter primer is a must!

I had to use NYX Professional Makeup Pigments after seeing so many bloggers pulling it off. They look stunning with these pigments. When I got it, I was so happy with its price. Because with the way it works, I thought the price will be very high. I got the shades Diamond, Crazed, Old Hollywood, Vegas Baby.

NYX Professional Makeup Pigments comes in a plastic tub that is cylindrical with a black screw lid. The quantity is very generous, but I am not very impressed with the packaging. While I use it, I always waste. I wish that can be changed.

The texture of the eyeshadow pigment is very soft and smooth. But it needs several layers to truly pop out. For me, I had to layer 3-4 times to get the right amount, even then, I wanted to put some more. I apply this pigment after my base makeup with a flat brush.

I really like the looks I have created with these pigments so far and it sure does give a different beauty to my final look. But only with a lot of effort. I have to use a glitter primer to let the pigment stick properly on my crease, otherwise it is just patchy and separated.

My take on this NYX Professional Makeup Pigments is neutral. It looks really good on pictures, but in real life, it falls out without a primer. And while removing it, it spreads around my face. So by the end of the day, my face is full of sparkles. I still haven’t figured out how to clean it the right way without ending up looking like a disco ball.

The pump dispenses a lot of product in a single push.

I have been using concealers ever since I understood the language of makeup, so I have quite a journey with them. For me, concealer is a must because I have very prominent dark circles. Just a month back, I purchased MAC Pro Longwear Concealer and ever since then, I have been using it.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer comes in a small glass tube with a pump dispenser. It is hygienic, but I really don’t like how it functions. The pump does not work properly. It dispenses more amount than required, and since it is expensive and comes in a small tube, it is a heavy loss.

The concealer has a creamy consistency, which makes it easy to apply under my eyes. It sets off quickly, so the blending needs to be fast. I use it almost every day along with my foundation which is a shade darker than NC25.

What I love the most about MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is how long wearing it is. Despite my skin being oily, it does not cake or melt for at least about 12 hours. And also, it is very easy to blend with my foundation.

Coverage wise, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer covers almost all my dark circles without giving me any gray patchiness. And also, it is buildable. I don’t really have many flaws on my face other than my dark circles, so MAC Pro Longwear Concealer gets a big thumbs up from me.

I will be recommending it for its quality and performance. The coverage this concealer gives lasts all day without creasing even on oily skin. So go for it!

Gives me a neat, dewy look.

I was looking for a foundation that wouldn’t cost me much but still gives me high-level results.

L'oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation surpasses other drugstore foundations for me. I absolutely love it! I’ve been using the N4 Beige shade for three months now. The product description promises that it has an ‘ultra gliding creamy texture,’ which is true.

It really suits my skin tone, and the finish is amazing. It has a very subtle golden shimmer, so it gives me a neat, dewy look. It is easy to apply and blend. And the coverage lasts long.

I love the hygienic packaging - it has a pump and a transparent cap which makes it travel-friendly. I do have to be careful considering it is a glass bottle. But that’s barely a concern. I’ve been using it daily since I bought it. I don’t really have many complaints about it. So I will say, it is worth a try.

My skin is baby soft!

This face wash is one of the best I have purchased so far. I have sensitive skin, so this creamy face wash works very well on me. After two weeks of use, I went ahead and brought the Aqua Boost cream to compliment this facial wash. Now it has been a month, and these two combined is the best! My skin is baby soft and well nourished. My winter is going so smoothly with these two products. I have noticed my skin getting healthier and more glowy. All thanks to The Body Shop!
