NYX Professional Makeup Plush Gel Lipstick is premium lipstick with a comparatively high price. But the performance is good. It is gel based lip color so it has a deep intense pigment and is really buildable. The lips look so bold and fuller. The size is small so it can even fit to small pockets of your hand bags. I just like to keep one kajal and one lip color in my regular hand bag. For this use, it is just perfect. It just glides on lips and is extremely soft on the skin. It does not dry the lips. If you want a soft and soothing look then apply just one ample stroke of application if you want a bolder look to highlight your lips then apply more than one coats of the color. It does transfers a little bit; as it is gel based thus it is long lasting. It is creamy so you feel soft. It is light in weight for long wear. It is worth to try once.
Does not fade
L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza is a gel based eye liner. I like to wear eye make up rather than face make up. and that too I want products that are light in the weight. I love eye liners so when I came to know that this eye liner is gel based, I decided to have it. The applicator brush is perfect for an easy and precise application. You can give any shape to your eyes, like I like cat eyes but with the normal water based eye liners I found it difficlut to give a desired shape to the eyes, but this one so perfect. The most special thing is that it is light in weight and long lasting really. It is non smudging and non fading. The removal is a little tricky but not a problem, just apply some cream and remove it. The color is so intense and dark that just one stroke is enough. I would recommend it for sure.

Natural oils formulation
Removes waterproof makeup
Gentle on skin
As I am a non make up person and I hardly know about make up products in depth. To remove the waterproof make up I was earlier using cotton swabs wet with some body lotion. Though is is time taking but is effective. I recently saw a friend of mine using MAC Cleanse Off Oil for removing lipstick from her lips after a party. I used it too and found it good. You can easily remove mascara or eye liner of waterproof nature also. The removal is so simple that just in one go your complete make up will be gone, that too gently as it is so soft and gentle on skin. You dont feel any burning or itching on skin after using it. As it has natural essential oils, It is soft on skin and actually nourishes the make up treated skin. One should have at least one make up cleanser to remove the make up without efforts. the price could be a little lower.

The good thing is that you can freely wear it over your foundation and even compact without any fear of disturbing the base. It will not affect the rest of your make up, just will highlight the areas of application. The broad tip makes it easy to apply, you just need to glide it over the target areas.

I have a naturally satisfying eye lashes, they are not dense but are just better than many of my known. I like to add eye make up as it makes you more attractive. I used it after reading its reviews on volume. The brush applicator is broad for a firm hold. It is easy to apply. The bristles are soft yet effective to uplift the lashes. It gives you an innocent big eyes look. It actually gives you a dramatic and thick dense eye lashes.

Made with natural ingredients
Makes hair shiny
Easy to use
Doesn’t lather well
No frizz control
Patanjali Kesh Kanti Reetha Hair Cleanser is a aurveda based hair cleanser. The ingredients really attarcted me as Reetha is super beneficial for our hair. In my opinion this product is made up especially for those who are fed up of using strong smelly and heavy lather shampoo full of chemicals and harsh ingredients. It is certainly a mild one. You may feel that it does not lather so much, or you may require a double application. But the cleansing will be from the scalp upto the strands. It has a medicinal smell, but I feel that fine. I actually feel that it did no wonder on my frizz and waves. But as it doen not change or alter the natural consistency of your hair. You can use hair conditioner if you like to. It is super affordable and less in price. It will surely help you to clean your dandruff and even will prevent it. The natural ingredients are all safe for us. I like it.

I have a natural wavy and frizzy hair. I gets so irriatted with the frizz that I apply a lot of conditioner plus I use hair serum too, just to manage the frizz. L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo is what I like after reading its name. Smoothing was the feature that attracted me. I used it and I found it working. i mean for sure it does no magic but it does make the hair less frizzy and manageable. It actually adds smoothness to the hair strand. The shampoo cleanses the scalp and the smoothening agents actually make the strand smooth. The hair was shiny and bright after the wash. I used it on my beach water treated hair which was actually damaged and lustreless. I used it and felt that the lather was not so impressive but the performance was really good. The aroma is so attractive, it has a tangy and appealing aroma which stays for long. I could not use conditioner after its use and honestly I was not feeling the need of the conditioner. Yu should try it on your frizzy hair.
Comes with a brow brush
Good shade range
I am a big fan of Eye make up products. Thus I never leave a chance to explore an eye product. Though I rarely use an eye brow pencil but I keep at least one in my vanity case. After reading many positive reviews I decided to use NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil. You can easily create the desired shape of brows with it. the most attractive thing is that it is available in eight different shades. So you can just experiment and find the suitable look for you. I like to use the white pencil to enhance my eyes and to make them appear bigger. The consistency is creamy so it is easy to use. Even beginners can use it. The applicator is also a unique feature; it is a double sided eye brow pencil. On one side it has a broad brush to spread the hair and to arrange them accordingly and the other side is the actual pencil. One must have this brow pencil to redefine the eye brows.

Bobbi Brown cosmectics are high in price but are good in qualitya nd performance. Honestly speaking I am not a big fan of make up primers as first I am not a skilled make up person and second I dont like to wear layers on my skin. I just love the natural look.

It gives a smooth and even base for your make up. It is long lasting and soft on skin. The removal is easy. You just need to apply it before any make up. Allow it to set for around 1 minute and you are good to go. Even a normal foundation will enhanec the look if you are using this primer. It is oil free completely still it is non drying.

It is velvety in touch having small and soft shimmery particles. As per my own experience I would say that take only a little quantity of Lakme Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter and apply specifically to the area that you desire. Just a small quantity is more than enough to add highlight to the desired areas of your face. It is a duo of contour and highlighter, thus you can say it is a two in one product. The shimmer is decent and not very artificial type. But still I would insist to wear it in heavy functions and that too in night time where the lighting is apt. lakme absolute products are made up for make up lovers who are not so skilled like me. I liked it and yes it is a limited edition product.

It has more than 15 shades. It is comfortable and light to wear. i did not find or feel it patchy at all. Most colors are bold thus it is good for a perfect heavy look for a party.

But looking at its reviews I decided to give it a try for the blue color. I liked it overall. The pencil is neither too short nor too long. It just fits your hand.

Blends products easily
If you want a precise application of your eye shadow or blush, then you can think of purchasing this MAC Shader Brush 242. Mac is known for its user friendly products and good quality. This make up brush is multipurpose as you can use it for applying eye shadows, blush, primers etc. So if you purchase this one you will be having a complete set for whole make up. It is firm and good shaped with soft bristles. It gives proper finish and full coverage. It gives a precise and clean application. You can gift it to others too. I like to carry it in my travel make up kit as this one brush can help you with all your make up application and that too with a perfection. Price may bother you, but I analysed and found that if you purchase 3 different brushes than it will be much expensive than this one brush.
Milani Even-Touch Powder Foundation is a powder based foundation. Honestly speaking I am not a big fan of powder foundations, still the name of the brand Milani convinced me to give it a try. As it is a powder based foundation so I am not so satisfied with the performance. It may look patchy especially on the skin of sweaty people like me. The application is not difficult but as I am not used to powder foundation I felt a lot of challenge to apply it. The pros is the silky touch of this product. It is quiet long lasting and no requirement of face powder or compact after it. If you are searching for a quick application foundation then surely powder foundations are meant for you. The shades are satisfying and the effect is also quite good. It’s just that a sweaty skin may look patchy with powder foundations. So better to avoid in hot & humid weather.
Can also work well as lip liner
MAC Eyeliner Brush – 209 is an applicator brush that is actually meant to apply an eye liner as per your desired shape. What I like about it is that you can create a thick as well as thin effect on eyes as per your requirement. the precision is so impressive. You just need to hold the brush firmly and apply in one steady stroke only. It surely needs a practice but the effect is so perfect that you will use it again and again. The brush has synthetic fibers thus the liner does not stick to the brush much and is transferable easily giving a smooth application. I used it as a lip liner too, you just need to clean the brush thoroughly with water and use it as a lip liner. So it is sort of two in one. It is so sleek that its easy to carry it. You can do experiments by mixing different colors of liners if you want to create your own customized shade of eye liner. Like you can mix blue and black shade for dramatics eyes. The price may bother you but it is a long lasting product, once purchased you need not purchase it again for a long. If you want a precise application of your regular eye liner or if you do experiment's with your eyes then this is the product for you.
Imparts a natural look
Brightens under eye dark circles
Makes your skin look flawless
I like Bobbi Brown for its premium skin care products. Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer is one most liked product among its whole range. This concealer works wonder for the under eye area to cover and hide the dark circles. Just one step or one stroke is enough to give its effect. You just need to apply it before any other make up product and allow it to set for about a minute. It gets absorbed in the skin satisfactorily and because of its creamy consistency the application is actually simple. It is safe for all skin types and suits all skin tones as well. If you are going for a party and have dark circles, then you can consider using Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer as it works wonders for eyes, though it is good for whole face and neck but still it’s naturally covering the dark circles, which is a unique quality for a concealer. I liked the cork screw opening manoeuvre and the applicator too. Anyone can use it safely. It feels so light on skin as if you are not wearing anything. It is long lasting too. Go ahead with this one if budget allows you.
Suitable for all skin types
Superb base for concealer or foundation
Packed in breakable glass jar
Bobbi brown has all the products that are required for the premium skin care. Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream is one such product of its range. Though it is high in price, budget might be the issue. But other that that this product is worth in every sense. I particularly liked its thick consistency and in spite of being thick is gets absorbed so quickly in the skin. You need to apply it regularly before bed along with a gentle round strokes massage around the skin on eyes. Take a liberal quantity and cover the eyes fully. You will start to notice a natural shine and glow to even dull and wrinkled eyes. I do not have wrinkles so can't really comment on its anti wrinkle effect but yes it has certainly positive impact of dull and tired eyes. It may help with the puffiness of eyes too. It does work for dark circles if used regularly. The ingredients are all safe and I felt no trouble or irritation at all. If your budget allows, just try this product for a naturally bright and shiny skin near eyes
Easy to use
If you are also a fan of eye make up and want to highlight your eyes like me, then Lakme Black Eyebrow Pencil is a must have product for you. It is a black brow pencil, though the color is not exactly black but is much closure to black. You need to apply it over your eye brows, give a nice long shape to your eye brows. Start from the center and take it till the corners of eyes. What I like about it is that it gives a fuller and broader effect on your eye brows. It is indeed long lasting and smudge free. It has a deep and intense pigment. To complete your eye make up, just use this pencil to enhance your brows too. You can live with the entire day as it is weight less and water resistance. Only a little quantity is needed. The application is super easy and it just glides. It is budget friendly and good for regular use.
Brand new finish

if you are a fan of matte shades in lip colors then NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Lipstick is ultimate for you. It is highly pigmented and intense in colcor. Though not so many shades are available, still you will find your favourite shade out of the available ones. It is super soft and creamy. if you are tired of the usual matte shades of your common lip colors then you should try this metallic shade. It glides on the lips and is easy to apply. You can easily give the desired shape using a good quality lip liner and use this one. Your lips will be fuller and bold. the matte effect along with the metallic tint is just awesome. I personally feel that the color is not suitable for daily use as it is bold enough to make you stand out. Thus use it for parties, especially the night parties. I liked the bold and sexy look after its application. Though NYX is expensive but for this one, I feel the price is apt. As it is long lasting, though it transfers still the pigment stays for a long time.
Easy to use
Defines and separates lashes
Difficult to remove
I like to do eye make more than facial make up. As my skin complexion is wheatish fair, eye make up goes with my face. I may not apply layers of other make up products but I do like to wear eye make up. Mascara is one such prodcut that enhances the look of eye by making the ey lashes fuller. Maybelline New York Volum’ Express The Falsies Washable Mascara is an awesome mascara in the price range. The applicator is broad and easy to hold. With a firm grip you can easily apply the mascara. It is intense and deep. Apply it from lower to upside for a good covergae. Just one coat is apt to make the look complete. It is non clumpy and so intense. The removal is a little tricky. You have to first apply a little of cream with a cotton swab and leave it, now rub and it will be wiped off. The price could be a little lower though it justifies the price.
Protects from UVA and UVB rays
Takes time to get absorbed
VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Gel Creme is super effective sun screen cream. It has a high SPF of 60. It is supposed to work even in sharp sunlight too. I like VLCC products for their affordability and efficacy. I liked this one, I have to drive a two wheeler and thus an appreciable sun tanning. there is nothing much that I can do to avoid the tanning, I use scarf and helmet still the effect of tanning is too irriatting. I have now started using this sun screen and feeling a lot of difference. It does protect the skin against the scorching sun. You need to apply it at least 15 minutes before going out in the sun. Use it liberally. It takes time for it to get absorbed but once done you are good to go. It does need reapplication if you are continuously in the sun light. You may find it greasy and thus a little messy in hot humid weather.

I am in love of these nail paints as they are cheap as per the quality provided. It is excellent to carry during travel too.

Satiny and shimmery shades
Six shades in one palette
I am not a party person, so I wear make up in limitation only. Though I use pallets but rarely. I used this product keeping in mind that it has 6 shades. I do like the shades as I have a normal to wheatish skin tone. The color suited me well. The blending is so goos. It blends in just one application and the application is simple. You can choose to wear it dark or light as the countor is pretty awesome. It is indeed long lasting and does not feel heavy on wearing. It does not patch and stays intact for a good period of time. I just felt that they must improve the applicator, I used another applicator not the one with the paletes and I was satisfed, But the applicator provided is not of good quality, it shakes. Overall Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette is one that I found expensive and the applicator is not impressive, considering it I would rate it average. Though the coverage and pigment are good but rest it is just an ordinary pallet.

Safe for contact lens users
Mac is my choice for party make up. I like the products but the price is issue. So I choose a few products from Mac range as per my budget and MAC Upward Lash Mascara is one of them.

I felt no irritation at all so I can say that it is safe even for contact lens users. The pigment is really strong and just one application is enough to give you full coverage. I agree that price is high but as it is mac and the efficacy is impressive, I would suggest to use it if you can afford. It is a quality product by Mac. I have used it both the ways, with liner and eye shadow as well as without liner and eyes shadow. I was appreciated for both looks.

If you feel it hard to blend then try to apply two coats as it will blend easily. I found it is not so travel friendly as the pallets fall out easily. It is multipurpose, I used it as bronzer also to improve my cheeks. Pigmentation is satisfying and you can wear it for long because of its light in the weight nature. The price could be a little more affordable. You can wear them regularly. The pack is compact and fits in your bag easily. I would recommend it to others for sure

Smudges and fades
I always like to wear an eye liner and a kajal. I tried NYX Professional Makeup Retractable Eye Liner pencil. I like the wide color range that it offers. You will find almost every color of your choice. I chose black and the blue one. It works well with the waterline. It is non burning or irritating, cool to eyes and does not feel heavy. I am just not so satisfied with the smudging. Though the color is intense and deep, it does smudge after some time. For a better and easy application just apply a little eye shadow first over the lids or the face powder. The application is precise and sharp. You can use it bold or a light one as per your choice. I just felt that it could be much better in the term of staying and smudging. It is creamy so spreads easily and smoothly. Just one stroke gives you intense deep color.
Doesn’t get chalky/ashy
Mac products never fail you. MAC Matchmaster Concealer is one of its kinds. I have just one black spot over my neck area which spoils my look. Thus I have to use concealer to conceal it. Honestly speaking I was expecting much from it but I was impressed by the blend. It blends with the skin so well. You just need to give a few gentle strokes to your desired area and cheeks and just blend it with your tips. To complete my look I used a face powder and the spot was totally invisible. I am sweaty still it stayed for around 5 hours which is impressive. Price is definitely high but other than that it is just perfect. You can quickly apply it and apply a cream just as I do and complete the look with a face powder. It adds smoothness and covers blemishes as well. I liked it.
Long staying power
Defines lashes without clumps
MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara is an expensive yet quality product. The most special quality is that it does not feel heavy on eyes at all and gives a deep and intense coverage. If you like eye makeup then this is for you. The applicator is super soft and the brushes molds with your hair giving a deep application. It is long lasting, non irritating and lightweight. It does not make flakes and is absolutely water proof. You have to wipe it off with a swab of cream. Apply it after eye shadow for an easy application. By mistake it went into my eyes and though it was not good but it was not burning like other mascaras. Thus I found it safe. Price is too much as it is Mac but the product maintains the quality. When you close eyes you need not worry for its spread. I liked it.
Easy to apply
Sets brows perfectly
I just liked this Longwear Waterproof Brow Set by Mac. Though I rarely use brow set, actually I was unaware about it. A friend used it and told me about it. The application is super easy. It is actually long lasting. as I sweat a lot, I need a product that can resist and sustain even with sweat. The effect is perfect. It helps to set the brows as per your desired shape. The brow actually stays like that for long. The consistency is soft creamish which makes it easy to spraed. You need to use the roll brush to take a small quanitity of the product and start applying from inward to outwards. wipe off the extra quantity and here you go. The only trouble that I found was that it becomes a little crusty though manageable still it is there. The cost is on a higher side otherwise it is good.
Good staying power
I like eyeliners as they actually enhance your look. I use kajal pencil for the waterline and eyeliner for the shaping purpose. Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eyeliner is perfect for those who want to be with makeup for a lingering period of time. It stays too long. It was wondering what it is actually smidge proof. Even for the removal, you will have to use a cotton swab with cream to remove it. One application gives you the desired result. The color is intense and jade black. It gives a fuller appearance to the eyes. The tips is so fine that you can apply a thin layer or a thicker one as you want to. the price is fine but if it could be a little lower it would be perfect for regular use as well. If you are office going girl then consider this liner as it lasts long.

I am not good at makeup; I always need a lip liner to apply the lipstick correctly. Looking at its shades variety, I decided to give it a try. I chose a color that goes with almost all bright colored lipsticks. The application is easy. What I like the most is that the color comes just in one application and shaping is so easy with this one. It gives full coverage and you can use it for a sharp as well as for a blunt shape. I even applied just this liner and filled the lips with pink lip balm and no lipstick. It worked so well for me for regular office purpose. It is long-lasting & easy to remove. The only cons that I found are that you need to sharpen it again and again. Though it is super easy still it could have stayed sharp for at least some time. I have even used it as an emergency liner because of its smooth consistency. You would love the colors.
Suitable for all skin types
Though I have no big issues with my under eye skin, it just look dull sometimes. For that, i was using aloe vera and it was effective, but as that can be used regular practically I tried this undereye cream by VLCC. It can be used by men as well. It feels so smooth and soft. It spreads and absorbed so easily. It has vitamin E and chamomile extract. It actually gives rest to my dull and tired eyes. Regular use is important and the best time to apply this cream is at night before bed, wash your face and then apply it over under eyes with a gentle subbing. I am thinking to gift it to my mother who often complaints of tiredness and shine less skin under eyes. The ingredients are all impressive and good for the skin. It adds a natural shine to the skin. It may have a positive effect on dark circles as well
Sleek and compact packaging
Easy to apply
Light to medium coverage
Milani Smooth Finish Cream To Powder Makeup is a good product if you ignore the price. The consistency is so soft and smooth that it feels so light on the skin. The coverage is good. Just a few dabs are enough to finish the look. I often use base cream and this makeup powder for a quick touch up. It adds a natural smoothness to the face. The application is easy and just like face powders. It has a mirror and a soft applicator pad for quick application. It is long-lasting and stays for about 4 hours if you don’t sweat too much otherwise a touch up may be needed. I liked it but just not cost-effective. Wash face and apply your base cream or foundation or whatever. When you are done with your basic makeup then use this powder to give the finishing and it will work like magic. Its compact so can be carried in a small purse as well.
Feels like a balm
NYX Pin Up Pout Lipstick is good for regular use. It is smooth ultra-soft and creamy inconsistency. On application, it spreads quickly and smoothly. It covers the lips naturally and gives a fuller appearance. I like all the shades but tried just one. It feels like a lip balm and still gives an elegant matte finish. You can apply it without any lip liner as the application is simple. Just one coat is enough if needed for a regular purpose or else apply a second coat for an intense look. It is easy to remove and does not leave the lips dry at all. Lips do not feel dry at all, it does not scale. Just that it does transfers for if you are eating or drinking just apply a second coat after it. I liked it for a quicker application, full look, and compact pack. You can also gift it to your friends.
Suits every skin
Mac products are expensive but undoubtedly effective and classy. My best friend gifted MAC Bronzing Powder to me on my birthday. She knows that I am not a party person and that my make up skills are far below than normal. I would have nor purchased this one because of its cost but as it was a gifted product I used it. The packing is perfect. It comes in an attractive black colored plastic circular box with an easy opening. It suits my skin, I have a normal to mixed type of skin. I just wanted to add a natural smooth glow on my cheekbones. I took a little quantity and applied to the desired areas. It blends easily and without much efforts. The shades are awesome. My friend gifted the bronze shade. But I think even the sheer one is also good. It is perfect for Indian dusky skin. I like a natural tanned appearance, and I got the same with its use. I just feel that Mac should introduce some budget-friendly products also for regular use. I would surely recommend this MAC Bronzing Powder to every party girl. It makes you so photogenic and attractive naturally. You should keep at least one in your vanity box. I will give 4 stars. Loved it in spite of the price.
Good for treated hair
Helps to control frizz
Himalaya Protein Hair Cream is a cream for dull and damaged hair. It is enriched with protein, our hair strands are made up of protein. Thus a protein-rich product is always good for your hair. It is so economical and the quantity is much. One pack is enough for more than a month for shoulder length hair. You just need to open it and take the cream in your hands. Apply on your scalp, massage for about 15 minutes. take a liberal quantity to cover all the scalp. Also, apply to the whole length of your hair. You may need a lot of creams but it is worth. Massage as much gently as you can and leave it for a minimum of one hour. I have once left it for overnight in my hair too and I just felt amazing. It is so easy to remove, you just need to wash it with lots of water. Just after its application, it detangled my hair up to the root and whole length. After wash, you will feel a visible smoothness in your hair. Natural shine and glow will be there. It promotes a healthy scalp and strong hair and also helps to control the tangles. after washing my hair was totally detangled. The aroma is mild and fresh. You can say that it is kind of running hair spa cream. The price makes it perfect for regular use. I would definitely recommend it to all the girls especially for those who run short of time. Use it once a week. It is non-messy and super effective. I loved Himalaya Protein Hair Cream and would give 4 stars to it.
NYX Butter Lipstick is actually soft and butter like in consistency. Its packaging is just perfect. It is anti leaking so can be taken in your travel vanity as well. The applicator foam like brush makes it so easy to apply. I rarely use lip liner, I liked NYX Butter Lipstick as it can be applied even without a Lip liner.Just glide it on your lips and give a two or three coat layer. It is filling, it fills the chapped areas in lips. It has an inbuilt moisture, so your lips feel moisturized and not at all dry. It gives a soft and full appearance to lips. You can try almost every shade, as it has a wide variety of shades perfect for all occasions. I like shades of natural pink as I am a working person. I like its butter like feeling on lips. The price is neither too high nor too low, one can afford it. I am using just one shade now but want to try other shades too. It is long lasting, though it transfers but still the look is almost the same if you have applied it deeply. once applied properly and deeply it can stay up to 4 hours which I feel is good enough for a lip color. The quantity is not so much as looks in the pics so decide accordingly. My overall experience with NYX Butter Lipstick is good and I would recommend it to those who can afford a little bit more than their usual lip colors as the result is really satisfying. You can consider it as a good option for gift to your loved ones.
for fresh look

Lakme is my all time preferred brand. Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact is one of my most used daily make up product by Lakme. The packaging is so elegant, the cover is golden. It has a good quality small mirror with a soft puff applicator. You just need to open it and take a little quantity in the applicator puff and rub it gently but with quick strokes from down to upwards. It is indeed easy to apply. Even beginners can use it. You should ideally use it after concealer or base cream. Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact actually completes your look. It absorbs extra oil yet it is non drying. Your face skin feels supple and moisturized. It fills the small gaps on the skin of your face. I found it really effective and long lasting. It adds a mild yet natural looking matte finish to your face. There is a natural glow to you. It is actually long lasting, so not expect it to work from nine till five as claimed. But it gives a decent stay of around 5 hours without the requirement of second application. I like the overall performance and the combined effect of this product with concealer. It has a perfect shade for Indian skin, just that if it could have more shades, it would be so better. I would definitely recommend it others, especially for those who wish to use compact regularly.
shades are awesome
Lakme 9 To 5 Crease-Less Creme Lipstick is one of its kind. I like its shades, Currently, I am having two shades of it, both are gifted to me. Lakme is superb in the part of the presentation, It has an attractive packaging. It comes in a roll on the pack, which is perfect for Lipsticks. the pigment is deep and strong. Depending upon your look, it can give you decent or bolder appearance. You just need to apply it in the end of your face make up. It is crease and makes no crease even after 3-4 hours. The lipstick is filling the lips giving a full appearance. It stays pretty well, for around 3 to 4 hours in a single application. You can reapply it after the said poeriod of time. It is easy to carry and travel friendly. It is smooth and soft in consistency. If you expect a matte look then re consider using Lakme 9 To 5 Crease-Less Creme Lipstick, as it gives a nice and attractive gloss. the price could be a little budget friendly. Otherwise, it is good. It transfers a little and not 100% transfer free but still, I found it good. It has an added benefit of SPF too, so you can easily wear it in the Sun too. Talking about the overall performance I just like it. You can consider it for a regular use. I would give it a 3.5 stars

Mac is a brand which runs with its name only. the products are actually worth for the money. Honestly, I did not dare purchase this product because of its high price. But it was there with my friend, she insisted me to try MAC Satin Lipstick. She had a red colored shade and as It was an occasion of a reception function I agreed to give it a trial. Initially when I saw Mac, I said dont spoil your expensive Lipstick, she said just try and you would surely switch to it. I applied it using a small lip color applicator brush, Let me tell you though it takes time, yet it is better to use a brush for the application of your lipstick rather than the direct application. The apllication was as expected, ordinary and simple just like other lipsticks. But what I like about it is that it has a natural satis smooth texture. It also helos to give your up a perfect shape you want. Like I wanted to highlight my eyes, so I chose to stay low on lips an dI applied this pigment after lining my lips small. I applied the MAC Satin Lipstick and in just one application it gave me a full coverage. It is long lasting, it stays for around 5 hours without any smudge and touch up. It does transfer but even after that the pigment and effect are pretty good. Price is always a concern for Mac. Though I haven't bought it yet, but after trying it I decided to have at least one shade with me. So if you can afford a little more than your usual colors try this one.

Primer is not always used by us. In my regular office day, I am running and hardly find any time to apply a make up primer. But when you have to go to a party, primer actually improves your look and enhance the make up. NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer is much more common in the US. A friend of mine from the US met me after a long time and a few exchange gifts, she gifted this to me. I was initially skeptical to use it initially. Talking about packaging, it comes in a tube pack, opening from upside down. The pack is decent and smaller than it looks in the pics. It can fit into your handbag very easily. Thus it is tarvel friendly. Talking about its application, you just need to take the desired quantity and apply it generously on your whole face including your neck. It instantly creates a base on the face. It smoothes the uneven area and gives a full coverage. You just need to blend it properly. Allow it to set for around 2 minutes and you are all erady for your make up. It is better not to use oil based foundation or cream with this one and it may not give much effect with oil based products. Also, it may not stay longer if too much oil based coatings are there. You can use foundation, compact whatever you like. The main work of NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer is to prepare an even and smooth base for your regular makeup. What I feel is that it may not suit every skin type. No doubt it suited me well and gave such a nice and smooth look to my face. The cons are mainly its price with an availability issue. It is long lasting, it stays up to 7 hours at one stretch. My skin is sweaty enough so I was not expecting much but to my surprise, it did stay for 7 hours. If you can afford, NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer is the product for your perfect make up look in parties.

Nivea Nourishing Body Milk works best for a treated skin or chapped and dry skin. It is thick body milk with high deep conditioning properties. The packaging is so practical, it comes in a dark blue pump pack. You just need to pump it for an easy dispensing. It works best when used in the morning after a shower, when our skin is a little damp. This is the best time to apply any body lotion as the pores are still open and our skin is super absorbing at this time. It may take time to absorb, as it is thick you may need to massage it a little on your skin which is perfectly fine. It flows but has a thick fluid consistency. It feels soft and cool on the skin. It is deeply nourishing to the skin, once applied in enough quantity, it may last up to 1 full day. What I like about it is that is hypoallergic and suitable to almost every skin type. It is perfectly safe to use it even for kids. The price is just fine and looking at its effects it is actually worth buying at this price. It is available in different sizes and packs like you can purchase a smaller one or a large family pack. You can keep a small pack inside your bad for a handy lotion. It works good for the skin itching becuase of dryness too. after its application you can try the nail scratch technique on the back of your hand to test whether it is effective or not. I did perform but satisfied completely. I use it for my 5 year daughter. She does not let me apply a lotion more than once so I need something that actually is long lasting. Nivea Null nourishing Body Milk did the full justice for the expectations.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips are decorative strips that are sticked to your nails and gives you your own desired decoration. I often paint my nails, but rarely I use or even think to use any decoration for my nails. My nails are quite long and thick. While doing a manicure my salon girl suggested me to decorate my nails and the idea stuck in my mind. The pack is totally fine. it has enough quantity of nail strips. It is budget friendly and that's why suitable for college girls as well. You just need to choose your favorite strip to stick it on the yor nail. It gets adhered easily and quickly. The application is not at all challenging at all. The only problem is that as it is a sticker, it will not last for long. a small wear tear and the scratch will be enough to take the sticker along with it. So you need to save your nails and take extra precaution to save the decoration. It is good for a party look, and it also makes you so attractive. You can choose a simple or heavy design as per your use. Just wipe off the nail with a little nail paint remover after removing these strips. I would surely suggest Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips for decorating your nails. I would give it a four star rating.

Maybelline Baby Lips Bright Out Loud is a lightweight tinted lip balm, you can use it as a substitute of your light shade lipsticks. It is perfect for a person like me, who feels uncomfortable wearing lipsticks regularly. I work in a hospital so I have to maintain a decent look. So either I have to choose some nude shades or natural shades of lipstick or can use a product like this. Maybelline Baby Lips Bright Out Loud actually moisturizes your lips along with imparting a natural color tint to your lips. The lips look natural yet attractive. The pack is small and fits easily in even a small handbag. You can keep it in your daily bag.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil is a natural extract of tea tree leaves, as per its label and claims these leaves are harvested manually means by hands only. The oil is rich in natural nutrients. The pack is just like a medicine. The bottle is small and so is the quantity. The consistency is like a thick concentrated oil. You need to apply it to the spots areas of blemishes and dark circles. Honestly speaking I don't suffer from either of these. But I tried it just for my dull skin as it claims to nourish the skin as well. I felt a softness and smoothness after its application. You need to wash face properly with some deep cleansing face wash and after wiping the extra moisture just dispense a small quantity of this oil, apply it on the target areas with a little gentle massage. Some oil will be absorbed and some oil will stay there on your skin. It is perfectly fine. I would suggest you to use it every night before bed as that is the time when our skin repairs itself and it is the best time to nourish the skin deeply. Next morning just wash your face normally like every day. Your work is done, It will add a natural smoothness and glow to your face which it did for me. Till the time I have just used it for 15 days or so, but the skin feels supple and nourished. Though I have a mixed type of skin, still I feel that it will suit every skin type. The one thing which I did not like at all was the price. It is too expensive. So you need to think for a regular and long term usage. But other than that I found no other problem with The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil. Just because of the price I am giving it 3.5 stars.
Aroma is alocohol based
may not suit every skin type
The basic three step process that is acceptable as the best skin care regimen is cleansing, exfoliation and moisturization. It comes in a transparent bluish bottle. The pack is not at all travel friendly and as it may spill while taking it for use. You need to choose the right time as per your schedule to follow this skin care regimen. Take a cotton ball and put a little quantity of Clinique Clarifying Lotion on it. Rub gently, allow it to work. As it have exfoliation properties and contains buffering agents, you may feel a little tickling sensation on your face after its application. But that's just a proof of its deep action. It actually shrinks the size of pores and obviously gives visible cleaning effects from the every first use. After a through use just wipe it off with a wet cotton cloth or wash with plain water. If you really want to get visible effects then folloe the three step skin care regimen by Clinique. Its pretty awesoem. I don't like the medicinal smell of this product, it may be because of alcohol content. The skin feels dry after its application thus you need to moisturize your skin and that's why you should follow the three step process. It may not suit the dry skin. because I have a mixed type of skin, it suited me well. It shows a positive effect on tanned skin as well. I would definitely suggest Clinique Clarifying Lotion to especially those who are under a lot of wear and having oily or mixed skin. You just take a trial if your skin is dry and decide. The price is too much, including the other two products your skin care regimen will cost you gross. Apart from that, I found it good and effective.
Easy to apply
Heavy party look
I am not a makeup person. I use a light make up that too when it is absolutely necessary. One of friend gifted me this NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray as I used to look so dull even in cocktail parties, as per her. She advised me to use it whenever I use party maekup. As I sweat a lot, make up does not stay on my face. Honestly, I don't like that patchy look on the face that is why I prefer not to use any make up. But as it was already gifted I gave it a try. It comes in a black colored attractive pack. The quantity is less, though it is used less so that a plus point for me. I found it effective after I was finished with my make up, I sprayed a few jets on my face holding the bottle a few inches apart from my face. It comes drops, I feel the mist dispensing is always better than drop dispensing. But whatever, it worked for me. I honestly did not like the strong aroma. It has some alcohol content in it, I could feel it from its smell. Unexpectedly it did not make patches on my face, in spite of the sweat. Though claimed as lightweight I found it heavyweight, possibly because of my rarely applying makeup habit. Price is on a higher side. the overall efficacy is just good. I feel that it may not be suitable for dry skin, becuase my skin is mixed to oily, it suited me but with a dry skin it may further adds to dryness and may become patchy. I would recommend NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray especially when you are under heavy makeup or if you are comfortable in wearing makeup setters.
smooth and soft texture

Nivea Original Care Lip Balm is one of my all time favorite Lip balms. It is best for the night care of your Lips. we always use lip colors, lipsticks, lip gloss, etc. for that reason lips may become dull or they, ay lose their shine. So, it is a good option to helps them rejuvenate during the night. That's why I apply Nivea Original Care Lip Balm every night on my Lips. It gets absorbed quickly, the application is super easy. Just one stroke is more than enough. It is suitable for almost every skin type. The texture is smooth and soft. If possible just massage a little on lips after the application. It is best suited for the treated and lipstick overuse dull lips. It gives moisture to chapped and dry lips gently. I can't focus on any work if my lips are dry. That's why I keep this Nivea Original Care Lip Balm always with me, For day time I use the pigmented lip balms by Nivea and for nights and when at home by default I use this plain lip balm. It is suitable and safe for kids as well. I apply it to my 5 year old daughter who loves this Lipbalm because of its pack. You can use it safely and without a second thought. I think this must be there in your lip care regimen. One more thing, it is budget friendly and it runs for many days. I would surely recommend Nivea Original Care Lip Balm to others as well.
not so expensive
not suitable for all skin type
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation is a liquid foundation which is good for oily skin. I like liquid foundations as they have a good blending property. Creamy foundations do not blend properly. Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation is oil free. The packaging is attractive but the quantity is less as seen in pics. It nourishes the skin from the deep within. It adds a natural glow to your skin. a little quantity is sufficient to cover your whole face and neck. always remember to apply it on the face as well as neck. It gives good coverage and smooth skin. I just like the natural shine it adds to your face instantly. It controls excess oils giving a fresh look to the face. It minimizes pore visibility and gives a naturally bright face. It gives a medium to full coverage and doesn't look greasy at all. The twist cap makes the application easy and smooth. It has vibrant shades of colors. Choose the shade that suits your skin tone. It is not so long lasting, it stays for about 3-4 hours. the price is fine. It may not suit dry skin, as it dries the skin itself. You can use it with easy especially if you have an oily skin.

Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover is a mind blowing product. I have a very hard tow nail, it is so difficult for me to even cut them. Because of their hard texture, I started to suffer from ingrowing nail too. It was indeed painful. I went to a beauty salon for a pedicure and she suggested me this cuticle remover. It is so effective. the packaging is perfect. the dispensing is fine. Just take the required quantity and rub on the cuticles, I applied it on my toe nails and left for about 5 minutes. the effect was amazing. It helped with my ingrown nails too. It makes the nail soften as the cuticles are removed and these softer nails are easy to file or to cut. It also soothes the irritated nail bed. I found it so suitable really that I feel every girl must have this. You can use it once every 15 days. Do not forget to read the full instruction that is written on its pack. Also, it is important to wash your hands properly. It is long lasting, as I said the effect satys for about 13-15 days. You can use it as a part of your pre manicure process at home. I don't feel any irritation or any skin trouble using it. I like it and would recommend it to others for sure.
Nourish the hair
Good for treated and damaged hair
gentle and soothing
Free from parabens
The fragrance is too mild
Not effective for frizz
Matrix Biolage Hydra Source Shampoo is a good treat for damaged hair. If you have teaken some hair tretament and you feel that your hair needs some good care then Matrix Biolage Hydra Source Shampoo is good for you. It comes to a stylish long bottle, It is flowing liquid. It lathers well and a small quantity makes a good lather. the fragrance is mild and does not stay for long. It claims to treat dull, damaged and split ended hair. Honestly, I can't comment on the claim against preventing and treating the split ended hair as a long term and regular use is required for that. But on the frizz it does have a positive effect. It controled the frizz but not for a longer time. The effect was for just for 1-2 hours, later teh hair was like it was before. I personally like the high protein content which instantly smoothes the hair. The price is a big concern as a regular use is difficult with this price. I would recommend Matrix Biolage Hydra Source Shampoo to you if you have recently treated your hair and you feel that your hair needs deep nourishment. It does control the dullness and adds a natural shine to your hair treated hair.

If you are looking for an eyeliner that can give you a feel on eye pencil as well as an eyeliner then you must consider using Blue Heaven Sketch Eyeliner. It comes in a simple pen pack. You just need to pull open the cap and apply directly on the eyes. The application is super simple, even a beginner with least makeup precision skills can use it without much trouble. It claims to be water proof and it is up to some extent. But it starts to smudge after a around 2 hours of application. I perosnally find the smudge look as it gives you a natural look but it might not be the same for everyone. The price is fine, it is justifiable. Looking at its result I was not so happy but yes stisfied and the application part was really mind blowing. It is light weigh and doen not feel heavy on eyes. You can apply a thick or thin layer as per your wish of look. The removal is non tricky, you just need to wash face with a good afce wash or else you acn just use a cream swab to remove it. Do not forget to remove it before sleeping. I would recommend it to those who are willing to transit to liquid eyeliners from their usual kajal pencils. If you are a beginner you can use it for sure.
difficult to remove
This is a master piece from colorbar. My friend gave it to me for trial. On using, I found it good an decided to buy for myself. Though the color is more on pink side than red as shown in the picture. But it is worth. It is smooth & extremely soft. It comes in an attractive packaging. The applicator is easy and simple for a quick application. I like the thing that you may not need a lip liner along with it. Just one or two deep strokes and you are done. It is long lasting. It stays around 8-9 hours, and it is actually transfer free. It gives you a rich look especially for a cocktail party. The only cons that i found was- its price, you can get other elite brands in this range and that the removal is tricky. You need to apply remover or cream to a cotton bud and then wipe it from your lips. I would recommend Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain for sure especially for party people.
I rarely use face packs, but the ingredients of this Himalaya Herbals purifying Neem pack attracted me. It has Neem extracts. I gave it a try just for its natural ingredients. the application is simple. It comes in a tube pack with flip open cap. It is leak proof; you need to keep it in upright position, facing the cap down. I applied it with the help of a brush. I did not feel any itching or burning sensation. Rather it was very cool. You may find the color unattractive but that is what I like natural about it. It took around 20 minutes to dry. Removing was not a challenge. I just made it wet and slowly washed with ample water. Talking about the results, I really liked the instant cleaning effect on my skin. I can’t comment much on the anti pimple claim as I am not a pimple prone person. The aroma is typically herbal. It actually cleans the skin from within. I liked it as it gave a smooth and soft glow to my face especially to my cheek area. If you are okay with some thick face pack with a stingy smell, then this is the product for you.
The specialty of this Organic India Coconut Oil is that you can apply it or even can consume it. As it is food grade, the consumption is perfectly fine. Cold pressed oils are newer in the field of Nutrition. The effects and benefits of cold-pressed oils are many folds higher than the normal ones. You can apply is over a number of skin conditions, including mild burns, bites, allergies, eczema, dryness, etc. Coconut oil is considered best for our skin as it is absorbed easily and gives rapid results. You can use it to kids as well. No side effect, no issues at all. You can even consume it, you can cook with it or can consume in whatever you like. It has many nutritional benefits too. It is rich in good fats. The only issue that I felt is that its packing needs a lot of improvement. It may leak and make things messy. I will recommend it to others for sure.

may dry hair
Garnier Color Naturals Creme Hair Color is a hair color for beginners and for those who run out of time. The application is simple. The gloves are provided inside the pack. You can just read the instructions and use it. I always allow leaving the color for about 30 minutes. You may feel a strong smell of ammonia, it may dry hair. The scalp was also colored initially. Now after practicing I can apply it much faster. It does not flow, just a gel based color which spreads easily. I use the burgundy color. the cons are that the color starts to fade after one shampoo only. It is not so long-lasting. But looking at its price and effect, users may like it. It is worth for money. Do not forget to do an allergy patch test before using it. And it is better if you use a color protecting shampoo.
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator is a product with a medium level of makeup skills. It can be used as a base for make up as well as a highlighter. I like the highlighting effect much more effective. The tube pack fits your hands. Talking about the packing, it comes in a sleek and handy pack which is travel friendly. It is easy to dispense, you just need to press a little and dispense thequantity needed to the finger tip. Directly apply to your face. Blend quickly as the blending will be perfect if you do it quickly. It has a creamy consistency which makes it suitable for the application. You just need to massage it on the target areas in continuous and gentle strokes till you get the desired result. It adds a natural glitter to your face. I like to apply it on my cheek bones to have a narrow and pointed look as my face is quite chubby. It may give you a natural tanned appearance which looks appealing. It is obviously meant for night parties and not for a casual outing. It may look pretty awesome if applied properly. I have a little problem with the price as it is quite expensive which justifies the brand. If you are thinking to buy NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator first choose the perfect shade and then try it whether you are liking the glittery look or not, then only buy. Though it comes in four different shades which cover almost every Indian skin tone, still it is better to read the reviews of each color and its effects.
safe for skin
difficult to blend
I have a perfect Indian skin tone, wheatish fair with a mixed type of skin. I dont beleive in fairness products at all. Firtst they are not effective second I like the way my skin is naturally. But looking at the beauty benefit and a brighter face claim I tried Fair And Lovely BB Cream. I personally found that it is just an ordinary cream. packing is fine, the deispensing is easy. When you need to apply it, you have to rub it instantly otherwise it will make white creases that are visible on your face. It instantly covers your face and gives a smoother look. But the blending is tricky. the coverage was fine. It has an added benefit of SPF. You can surely wear it under the sun as well. The actual problem is its texture which is quite drying. As I sweat a lot and my skin needs a product that can stay for long. But it is certainly not suitable for a sweaty skin like me, you need to reapply after a while especially if you are sweating. Also, the patch it leaves looks messy on your face. I would just say that it may suit your skin type, but it is better to try it and then only buy it. One thing that I liked for sure is its fragrance.
two in one
Lakme 9 To 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color is one of the best Mousse. I am a regular user of Lakme. This brand rarely fails you. Thus when I decided to give a try to a mousse, I chose Lakme 9 To 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. The packaging is always a strong point for Lakme products. It comes in a transparent glass pack. Its trendy and fits in the small pockets of your purse. Thus it is travel friendly. The application is super easy. It comes with a soft applicator. Just one stroke ie enough to give you a strong coverage. What I like about it is that You can use it without even a Lip liner. The application is actually fast and simple. It is long lasting as well. The color is deep and intense. It has a matte finish and the liquid is creamy soft in texture. For this reason, you can use it as a Mousse for your cheeks as well. Just give one gentle stroke or swipe it softly from down to up on your cheeks. The natural matte touch finish will enhance your look. It does transfers, but still, I found it much more effective than many of similar products. It has a considerable price but I think it is justifiable. I like the plum shade and the cocoa shade. One more that I felt, it is not necessary that the same color will suit your cheek too. so be conscious when choosing the shade for your cheek. I will recommend it to those who are fond of liquid lip colors. It is really a good one, especially for regular use. You can freely use it every day
gentle on pocket-friendly
suits every skin
Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water is one product that should be included in every girl's skin care regimen. I always carry Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water as my all time favorite freshener and skin nourishing agent. I honestly don't know what cons can be there with this one. It is natural rose water extract and it is extremely soft and gentle on the skin. You can use it as to make up remover, just to nourish your facial skin, add it as a base in various face packs, or use it as a face spray for freshness. It is perfect in every sense. the fragrance is like real roses. The fragrance actually stays for long. I have kept a spray bottle in my office and I fill it with a little of Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water and us it as an instant freshness spreay. Just a few sprays and you will feel and look glowing. Not only this, rose water is good for skin also. It gently cleanses and moisturizes the skin of our face. Regular use will help you to get a natural glow to your face. It is suitable for every skin type to be it oily, dry or mixed like mine. I keep the bottle inside the refrigerator and the cooling effect is doubled. I soak cotton swabs and put it on my eyes. It may help with your dark circles as well. It is pocket-friendly and you need not think twice. I would strongly recommend Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water to every girl for everyday use.
easy to apply
zero assistance needed
Stains the scalp skin too
Garnier Black Naturals Oil Enriched Cream Hair Colour is such a commonly used hair color that every parlor must be having. I have a lot of white hair and that it is actually embarrassing. I personally like to apply henna to my hair as it is all natural and zero chemicals. But practically speaking, applying henna, allowing it to dry, washing it is all so messy and time taking. That's why I decided to go for Garnier Black Naturals Oil Enriched Cream Hair Colour. I like the burgundy shade and using it for so many years regularly. The application is super easy. It comes in a sachet that has a developer and color base. you need not worry about the proportion of the two. Just open the pack completely and apply it directly with a brush. It comes in a one time sachet pack which is very practical and even travels friendly. It is a gel based color which sticks to the hair fast. You just need to add a little more to the target area. It is completely nonmessy. You just need to keep it for about 20 minutes and the wash with plain water or any color protect shampoo. It has natural oils so the hair looks soft. the color blends easily and gives you a natural look. the only cons that I found are that it stains your skin of scalp as well. Just do not forget to do the patch test as explained on the pack and follow it for a safe application. It is pocket friendly and the color stays for about 15 days with two shampoo wash. You just need a color safe shampoo. and do not forget to apply conditioner.
Reapplication is required after eating
This is a dual-use lip color. It has a pencil on one side and smudger on the other hands. So you can have both a light party make up look as well as heavy and bold look. I like the matte effect of it, it comes in many vibrant shades and each shade is classic. I found it good as a gift for my office colleagues. The compact roll packaging makes it perfect for your travel vanity case. You need to apply a thin layer on your lips and the reapply as per your choice of look. I personally liked the mauve shade. It even smoothen chapped lips. It is creamy and has high pigment.The smudge applicator gives you a perfect smudge and natural matt finishing. The lips appear smoother and attractive. I like Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation and will recommend it to others as well.
A little quantity is enough
Suitable for kids
For this one, I have no cons. This Dettol hand wash is a must for every home. The pack is just perfect. It comes in a decent white bottle with a press pump system to dispense. You need a little quantity on your wet palms. Rub it and allow completing its action of cleansing. Just after few seconds wash it with plain water. The lather is ample to cover whole palms and back of your hands. I have kept one bottle each in my both washbasins. I have developed a habit of washing hands very often for the health sake of my daughter. Even she can press and dispense it for herself. The price is affordable and it almost lasts for around a month. We have kept one bottle in office as well. It is super handy and useful.
smooth in texture
easy to remove
Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish is perfect for those who color their nails very often. The packaging is so cute. It comes in a small glass bottle with a good quality brush applicator. the application is easy for a beginner too, In just one coat it gives a rich look to the nails. I use nail paints for my toes. I like the red shades. The shades have almost everyone's choice. The application is easy so as the removal. You just need to take remover in a thick cotton bud and wipe off the color. You just need to hold the brush firmly in your hands, take the desired quantity on it and apply just in one stroke to the whole nail. The effect is even more appreciable if you apply a second coat too. It is affordable and the size is just perfect. I believe college going girls must have this product to stay fashionable and stylish.
may not suit every skin type
I am a fan of Lakme products. I am a working mother so I hardly find any time to pamper my skin. I started using this cream. It worked pretty well for me. I like the packaging, it comes in a glass jar of silver color. The cream inside is a little white to pink in color. It is super soft and silky in texture. Application is simple and easy. You need to take a coin sized quantity of the cream and apply on whole face and neck with gentle massage and soft strokes. I honestly did not feel much change in my skin color. Just after application, it gives a smooth and shiny look. regular use helped me to maintain the shine on my face. I liked it. Though my skin is not prone to acne nor I have any gross skin condition so I cant comment on the skin lightening claim of this cream. But it certainly adds a natural glow to your face. I was just concerned with the price. If the price could be a little lower, it would be so perfect. I would recommend it for others but do not expect it to make you fairer.
shades for every skin type
Easy to apply
NYX Highlight And Contour Pro Palette is a perfect party supply. It has a wide variety of shades, perfect for almost every occasion and for almost every skin type. I think for Indian skin, NYX Highlight And Contour Pro Palette has all shades. The pigment is dense and high in color. It comes in a nice and decent box with a soft head applicator. The applicator is soft and perfect for even a beginner. It is long lasting. You can apply your favorite shade of this palette and stay up to 5-6 hours without the need of reapplication. The only issue I found was the price. In my opinion, this is a little overpriced. If the price would be on a little lower side, it would be easy to afford. But overall I would recommend this product if you are a regular user of makeup and you need a monthly supply of your palette.
perfect for a bold look
Not transfer proof
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is indeed a deep pigment that every girl must have. The packing is sturdy. it comes in a decent and easy to use pack. You need to just roll it on and apply directly on your lips. I use it without any lip liner as it is intense and deep and it actually gives a bold look to your face. You can just apply a darker shade and leave your face without makeup. The lip color would cover you up. I like the shades as well, it has really intense and common yet useful shades. The travel friendly pack makes it even more useful. the color is deeper and spreads easilya nd quiackly, the lusture is appreciable really. It is available in 82 shades (I have just purchased two of them). You will find your favourite shade for sure. The price may hamper you to buy this, but this is just worth. It has a brand name, it is useful and long lasting too. I personally found that the color transfers, but still it looks intense. the creamy texture feels so smooth on Lips. It feels as if you have applied butter on your lips.
easy to use
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil is made you if you are a regular user of an eye pencil. It is two in one, you can use it as an eyeliner or as eyeshadow. It smudges which may help you with a smoky effect. You can apply a sharp line on the waterline of your eyes and just fill the other area with it lightly. It will give you a perfect smoky look. The packing is impressive, it is a thick pencil and the application is actually easy. It is available in 16 shades including my all-time favorite blue and black shades., all the shades are vibrant and useful. The texture is creamy and it is a jumbo sized pencil. I will suggest you buy this pencil cum shadow base if you are a regular user of eye pencils. I felt that it started to crease out especially near my waterline after 3-4 hours. So reapplication is needed after that. the removal of this pencil is pretty easy and you need not rub it with a cotton swab with cream.
Does not absorb rapidly
Himalaya Intensive Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion is super smooth and soft body lotion. Talking about its packaging, it is simple yet decent. It has a flip open cover for an easy dispensing. You just need to take the required quantity on your palms, rub a little and apply it on your skin. You may need to massage a little for it to absorb in your skin. It gives instant nourishment to the skin. It is especially suitable for dry skin, it softens the skin deeply and quickly. It has olive oil, Cocoa butter, and Grapeseed oil. all of them are good for the nourishment of the skin. The best time to apply as per my experience is just after a bath when the skin is a little moist. It gets absorbed properly at this time. It does not cause any rash, burning, itching or any issue to skin. Rather it intensely gives a cool and soft feel. the fragrance is refreshing and is long lasting too. Once applied liberally, you need not reapply the product at least for 6 hours. It worked wonders on the itching of my stretch. the skin is softer with subsequent applications. It is affordable and we need not think twice before purchasing it.
the lather is awesome
gives fresh feeling
Prevent foul smell
just twice a day works well
Supports genital hygiene
If you are a female then you must agree that genital hygiene is important, be it your period days or normal days. Hygiene prevents infection. The pH based formula is as per the need of your vaginal pH. the packaging is just like a liquid shower foam. You need to pump a little and even a small quantity will dispense a rich lather. application is simple. You just need to apply the foam directly over your vaginal area, rub it and clean the area with gentle strokes. Now just wash with normal water and you are all done. I used it and impressed by the zero burning and irritation. It cleans deeply and gently. because the pH is as per the vaginal pH levels, it helps to maintain the normal vaginal flora. Washing with plain water and washing with Clean & Dry Intimate Cleansing Foam Wash has a lot of difference. Your vagina feels clean, free from irritation, burning and is soft. Regular use helps to prevent vaginal infection. During periods I feel like my private area is not clean. but after I started using this foam wash, I feel that even during periods my vagina is clean and it prevents the itching also. It is delicate enough for the sensitive skin of the target area. You can give it to your Mother for better hygiene practices. I always carry a pack during traveling and it helps to prevent the travel related vaginal infections too. The price is justifiable and is affordable too. It also absorbs all the foul smell and imparts a fresh aroma, though I feel that It would be much better if It would not have any aroma of its own.
All natural ingredient
benefits of haldi
natural nourishment of the skin
adds glow to the skin
Kumkumadi Thailam is an ayurvedic serum for skin. It is an oil based Ayurvedic product, containing all the natural and herbal ingredients. You need to apply it to your skin and it will give a deep nourishment. The necessary quantity will be absorbed by skin and the extra is left. So it is important to take the correct quantity. Wash your face and wipe the water. When your skin seems dry, take out a small quantity of Kumkumadi Thailam on your palm and apply softly. It is better if you massage, it will also improve the blood circulation and will nourish the skin from within. It has benefits of haldi, which is known to reduce blackness and has anti-inflammatory properties. The oil base is good to maintain the natural moisture of skin. I can not really comment on the effect on dark circles as I am not having any dark circles under my eyes. But it certainly adds to the natural skin glow. But like any natural ayurvedic product, it is important to use it regularly for optimal benefits. I am a little disappointed with the packaging, it is more like medicine or some ear drops pack. the aroma is mild and has a herbal smell. Overall, if you like to go for a natural skin serum, you can opt for this one.

Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick is a high pigment and intense lipstick. You can use carry it in your hand bag and can use it anywhere.

Based on your selection of shade you can go for abolder look. It is long lasting and stays for a longer time. You can wear it upto 6 hours.

maybelline master strobing stick is a skin highlighter to enhance the party look. I felt it is on a little higher side on the price. Though I am not a party person and my knowledge for makeup is not really appreciable. Still, sometimes it is necessary to use makeup. You need to use it after your full make up. It is a creamy formula, so application is easy. It comes in strokes naturally. you need to finish your basic makeup and let it set on your skin. Just after a few minutes, add maybelline master strobing stick highlighter. In my opinion, it is better to apply it on the cheeks. It really adds an appeal to your face.

Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation is an invisible foundation base. The packaging is just fine and travel friendly. Just that it comes in a glass bottle pack. It is transparent to natural in color. It blends easily and the consisitency is soft and creamy. It sperads easily. take the necessary quantity in your hands and apply in round coin shape on your face and blend it properly. Befors applying anything other to your face just allow it to set. Once you feel teh base is formed now you can proceed with your other makeup products. I found it lightweight and long lasting. It doesn't cake rapidly. Also, it smoothens the skin just in one application. It also helps to hide the dark spots. On application it gets absorbed fast on your face. Apply it to your neck as well. For surprise it has SPF too, so you can wear it in the sun too. As the color is natural, it ives you a natural shine. It does nota ppear as you have applied some heavy makeup. It actually looks natural. So it gives a true no-makeup makeup look. I feel that it may be drying for those who are having a really dry skin. It is perfect for normal to oily skin. I would recommend it to others for a no-makeup makeup look.
No side effects
may not suit every skin type
Though I have quite clear skin and no gross skin problems. Still, I sometimes have breakouts, especially on cheeks. I decided to try this Himalaya Acne-N-Pimple Cream. I was impressed by its constituents. It looks like a medicine only. You have to clean the face with any good quality face wash before using it. Wipe your face and let it dry a little. Now apply the required quantity to the affected areas only. Rub a little and allow it to get absorbed. It gets absorbed fast. You should apply it at least twice a day after washing your face. It instantly spreads and covers the target area. The action is from inside, you feel nothing than a cool sensation. This cool touch is so relieving. Though I can't really comment on its full efficacy as a regular and long time application is needed for any skin product to show visible effects. But I can say that the skin is supple. It is actually gentle and soft. It caused no burning no itching no other problem. I would suggest you to also increase your water intake if you are using any anti pimple product as it will aid the process of fighting acne. I feel that a regular application will not only slow down the acne breakout but also it will reduce the acne spots if there is any. So you can try it Himalaya Acne-N-Pimple Cream safely.
simple to apply
safe for daily use
intense and deep
if it blunts you can't apply it properly
Elle 18 Kajal is for those who do not find the pencil kajal suitable for them. Honestly, I purchased it for some auspicious occasion to be offered to Goddess Laxmi and then you can use it as her blessing. There is much a ritual in our community. I found it a small and travel friendly pack. The stick is simple to open and apply. You just need to hold it stiff in hands and apply outside your waterline. The application is not at all challenging. Even beginners can use it. the color is intense and deep black. I like the color. It is not drying rather it is sort of creamy in consistency so it spreads easily. Coming on to the cons, I personally found it not suitable for a longer period of time. It is not long lasting at all, it smudges and spread fast. It may actually spread to skin near the eyes. But compared to other Kajals, I found Elle 18 Kajal a better version. the price is affordable. You can give it to your Mom as they generally like the pencil kajals.
Gentle and mild
Under eye dark circles are often a big problem to new moms, because they cant sleep properly for the initial six months, this tiredness and lack of sleep may manifect as dark circles. No matter how good you look, dark circle takes away your goodo look. This is what exactly my story was when my daughter was born. As I was having no time to go to parlor or to use any home remedies, I was bound to use some under eye cream. I chose Clinique All About Eyes undereye gel cream. I prefer it over the others because of its gel base. I really like the packaging. It is a gel based cream so application is so easy. It gets absorbed rapidly. You may find it greasy but I liked the consistency. It makes the undereye area smooth and supple. The puffiness starts to reduce, in my case I felt a natural coolness and calmness just after a few applications. It is non-burning and non itchy. You feel no weight at all. It takes time to bring effects but surely it will make the eyes brighter and smoother. The skin tone is improved after regular application of this super gel. You can use it as a makeup base for eyes as well. The only cons I found was the price, it is actually expensive, although effective still if the price could be a little power, it would be a perfect product. It is surely worth a try. It actually works.

The aroma is sweet and attractive. It is seductive. I really like the tinch of jasmine that is in this one. The second thing I like is its stain free formula, you can freely spray it even on your branded clothes, it will not leave any perfume stain like other perfumes and deodorants. I prefer Guess For Women Eau De Parfum Spray than usual deodorants as it does not only stain free but is long lasting actually. We tend to gift something to every member of my group. after Guess For Women Eau De Parfum Spray, they all agreed to choose it as our next gifting option. We share a budget for it. The only thing that may create a problem is its price. It is a high class perfume so you need to pay a little extra. But the aroma is distinct and really attractive. Next time you plan to gift something to your friend, just consider this perfume spray.

Sally Hansen So wealon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips is nail paint strips especially for those who actually don't like to wear nail polish and again remove it. It was a newer concept for me.

It is extremely thin so you can't tell the difference between the real nail paint and this one. I opened it and found a pink colored one. the aplication was super simple.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub is a well balanced formula which is meant for a deep cleansing. Though I have a mixed type of skin, normal to oily. And thankfully I do not have any gross skin issues like acne. But sometimes I do have occasional skin breakouts, especially over cheeks. I do have some blackheads and some whiteheads on my skin. I was suggested by, my dermatologist, to take care of the clenaing of my skin. I chose this deep cleaning scrub over the others as Neutrogena suits my skin. The aroma is nice; it is creamy in texture with some granules in between. It spreads easily. You just need to take a small quantity and apply over wet face. scrub gently with circular strokes. be firm yet gentle. After a few minutes just wash with plain water.

I would definitely recommend it, especially to the girls of college age group as they have more skin issues. It will help to deep clean your skin and also to prevent the blockage of pores.
Not transfer free
I have no patience to apply a lot of makeup, so I always search for products that work with minimum efforts. When it comes to lipstick I rather use Lip balm just because of hassle free application. But This NYX Butter Gloss helped me to switch to a lip color from my usual balm. the application is simple. You can apply a single layer for a low coverage like when you want to look natural, or else you can apply two or three layers to get a party look. I like the variety of shades, I am using two of them one is pink and the other one is strawberry. It makes the lips smooth. The texture is buttery. It spreads easily. The only problem I found is that it is not transfer proof so reapplication is required. Other than that I like everything, the packaging, the applicator, the shades everything. It is a good option to gift others too.
blend with skin
Gives a fresh look
Estee Lauder is one brand that is considered to suit even sensitive skin. Talking about this Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup compact, I was skeptical to use because of its price. But my office staff gifted it to me. It comes in attractive packaging of blue colored thick plastic Box. The logo of the brand is embossed on the box, it adds to the presentation. The applicator sponge is super smooth and soft. The application is actually simple and easy. Just one stroke is more than enough for a smooth look. It absorbs extra oil and gives a fresh look. They have added the SPF too. So it is even safer in the sun as well. You just need to apply it once in the morning and it will stay up to 7 hours without any fading. the only cons are the price and the affordability. But if you can afford it this Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup compact is a must for your makeup routine.
Provides deep moisturization
Safe for kids
need to massage to get absorbed
It has my childhood memories, My mother used to apply Ponds cold cream during whole winters especially on my cheeks. We never suffered any cold rash, itchiness or dryness, etc or any such issue. It comes in an oval shaped white colored jar. The cream is white, it's creamy and feels smooth, buttery in consistency. Take ample quantity on palms and apply directly on skin. You need to massage a little and here you go. It is long lasting, lasts for about 6-7 hours in a single application. It is affordable so one can use it regularly without thinking twice. I also like the typical floral fragrance which is long lasting too. Though it is not so cold here in Mumbai, still I keep a pack during December and January. I also apply it at nights to my daughter. It gives a natural softness to her skin too. It is safe and can be used for kids as well. Overall I am a fan of Ponds moisturizing cold cream.

Evens out skin tone
Protects skin from harmful UVB and UVA rays
Make skin glow
Does not get absorbed quickly
It is one of the most famous face creams. I remember my mom using it when I was young. Fair & Lovely Multi Vitamin Cream Pump Tube SPF 15 is a good regular cream. I will not comment on the fairness claims by this cream as I am not using it regularly and only after regular use, you can access the real efficacy of any product. The packaging is impressive, it comes in a white tube packing. It has a flip open cap. The application and use are simple. The pack is compact and travel friendly. Coming on its efficacy- I like it for an instant brightness on the skin. You need to take it in sufficient quantity and apply all over face and neck. Massage quickly as it takes some time to get absorbed. But it does absorb in the skin and gives a natural brightening effect. Your skin looks bright and smooth. As my skin is sweaty I just feel that I must not use it during humid weather. It does not cause any issue after application. The skin is smooth and soft. The added benefit is that it has an SPF too which helps you to wear it in the sun too. You need not apply any sunscreen after it. It stays for around 2-3 hours and then you need to reapply the cream. I like it for the instant effect on the skin. It gives you a soft party look within just one application. so, it is good to use when you do not have time to apply layers of make up. It gives you that party smooth face instantly. I personally feel that it makes the skin dry so quite challenging to use during winters. I like Fair & Lovely Multi Vitamin Cream Pump Tube SPF 15 as it is affordable and gives you instant effects. with a nice smell.
Makes the hair smooth, silky, and soft
When my salon girl used it on my hair, I liked the aroma and asked her the name of shampoo. then I bought this shampoo. Talking about the packaging, it comes in a black colored thick bottle with a flip open cap. The shampoo is white in color. It is just perfect in consistency, neither too liquid nor too thick. The application is simple and easy. After oiling my hair , I wash my hair the next morning. I mix a little quantity of shampoo with water and mix it well. Now I apply this shampoo water on my scalp and hair strands. the lather is so good, just a little quantity is enough. It gives an intense smooth ness and aroma is just magical.

Refreshes the skin
Does not impart blush and glow as claimed
Lakme products are my all time favorite. I bought it keeping in mind its brand value and the travel friendly pack. I am happy that the decision was right. The packaging is attractive; it comes in a strawberry red colored tube pack with a flip open cap. It is leak proof and easy to dispense and use. the lather is good, only a little quantity is enough to cover your face and neck. W Follow these steps as per my personal experience- Wet the face with water Take a little quantity in palm Use a little water to make a good lather Apply this lather on your face and neck Rub gently with mild strokes Wash with water Just that and you are ready to glow. It is super effective as it cleanse the skin instantly taking away the dirt and oil. It leaves the skin supple and shiny. You will not feel dryness and it is not at all harsh on the skin. It is just perfect to wash away the extra oil only and not your lustre. The skin is fresh and looks clean. I liked it as it is affordable and budget friendly and effective too. It does not cause any trouble or issue to my skin. As my skin is sweaty, dirt accumulates on my skin quickly so I need a face wash that is effective but not harsh. You can use it as your make up removal face wash or as a regular face wash. As the pack is anti leaking and travel friendly I always keep it with me during travel. Just a little wash and you are all ready to go. If you are looking for a decent face wash with a good brand then Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Gel Face Wash is just menat for you.
Hydrates the skin
Washes off easily
This is one of my favorite face washes by Patanjali. It comes in a tube packaging with a flip open cap. It is leak proof. The packaging is decent and simple. It is neither too liquid nor too thick. It is easy to apply; just a small quantity is enough. The lather is impressive. It covers your whole face and neck, for deep cleaning allow it to work more by leaving on your face or gently rubbing over your face and neck for about 3 minutes. Wash with plain water. Only one application is enough. It does not dry the skin, yet cleanse the excess oil and dirt. The skin glows after just one application. It is so gentle that it leaves your skin smooth and shiny. So it suits almost every skin type. My skin is normal to oily but even if your skin is dry, it is just perfect. The price is so perfect, looking at its efficacy I feel that the price is exactly for regular users. You can put it in your vanity case and travel easily. The aroma is so refreshing, the smell is lemon based and refreshing. Though it vanishes fast, but the effect remains. Use it minimum twice a day and it will just cleanse your face, will take away the dirt and control oil. I would not comment on its efficacy on Pimples as I don’t have a pimple prone skin. But I like its overall performance. I use it daily before going to bed. It takes away the dullness and bring a refreshing look to your face. It is budgeting friendly too so no need to think twice. If you are looking for an effective yet low priced face wash, then Patanjali Saundarya Face Wash can be choice for you. I will give 4 stars to this face wash.
A little goes a long way
Does not stain clothes
Fresh flower fragrance
Not travel-friendly packaging
I am fond of perfumes and aromas. Calvin Klein Eternity For Women Eau De Parfum Spray attrtacted me because of the name of this brand. I have used this brand's deodorant earlier and was highly satisfied with that. I wanted a perfume so I tried this one. It comes in a transparent glass bottle. The packaging is so attractive and alluring that It brought a smile on face when I took it in my hands. It is liquid spray based perfume, you need to hold the bottle at a distance of a hand and spray on yourself. I was scared for the stains, but surprisingly it did not create any stains. Still it is better to spray it from a distance. The fragrance is absolutely refreshing; it instantly came to my husband's notice. The aroma is natural and does not feel heavy or to sharp and intense. It is mild but refreshing and persistent. It stays with you. It stayed for around 5 hours in just one application, which is practically good. After five hours I reapplied it and the effect was amazing. I personally felt that this perfume works well especially during winters, though in summers also it worked. But the effect was longer when the temperature is cold. The price is on a little higher side but if you are looking for an affluent aroma effect. the other trouble which I felt is that the pack is not pocket friendly. We can’t just put it our travel vanity case and use whenever we want too. One more thing that I feel is that it is a good option to gift someone within this budget. I would surely recommend this perfume to office going and college going girls. I will give it a four star and would surely love to shop it again.
Easy to apply
Contains SPF 20
Not suitable for dry skin
Light to medium coverage
Limited shade range
Lakme is one of my favorite brands, though I rarely use concealer as my skin is smooth and not with many black patches. I have almost nil blemishes, but just one dark patch on the neck region. For that, my beautician advised me to use concealer. Without a second thought, I purchased Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20. The packaging is good and impressive. It comes in a roll-tube which makes it simple to apply. You just need to roll it to express the concealer. Apply directly on your skin, identify the areas first where you want to use concealer, roll it over the target areas and with gentle strokes dab it and spread evenly. One more thing that I liked is the travel friendly pack. It blends quite well, the application is easy. It also gives good coverage. For better results apply your regular cream after the application of concealer. One personal advice, it is better not to apply concealer near the areas of your eyes, as it will cake more and will spoil your look. Also, if you have a dry skin then probably it may not suit you well. Though it is better to test and decide. I am a sweaty person, I felt that after around two to three hours of resistance, it started to oxidize and look weird. To my surprise, it has SPF too. So no more worries for the effect of sun too. I must say that it is like a regular concealer and though I am satisfied with it, still, I feel that there is room for betterment. I would recommend Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 to others, but do not expect too much as it is a decent product. The price could be on a little lower side.
Makes hair shiny and thick
When Patanjali comes to my mind I think of natural ingredients and a lower price. I ordered this hair oil by Patanjali for regular use. My hair is shoulder length and wavy type. They get dry easily, so I want a deep conditioning at least twice a week. The product comes in a simple pack, just perfect for the price. The pack is plastic bottle which is green colored. It comes with a flip open cap and it is totally leak proof. The oil smells like a medicine, the typical herbal smell. Though I did like the smell but is surely different from the other hair oils. The application is simple. It spreads easily and gets absorbed easily too. It is better to put the bottle in warm water and when it turns a little warm then take it in your palms and apply evenly to your scalp. Massage gently with your fingertips and give a few gentle strokes. I also steamed my hair with the hot towel method. I would suggest you to keep the oil at least for overnight for deep conditioning. Next day wash your hair with your choice of shampoo. I felt that at least two applications of shampoo are necessary for complete removal. I would not comment much on the claim of preventing the hair fall as I have just started to use it. At least a month’s regular use is needed to verify the claim on its efficacy against hair fall. I felt my hair was soft and shiny after its application. You can use it regularly. Do not forget to use a pillow sheet to protect your pillow cover from staining with oil. You cannot just apply it and go out as the aroma is noticeable, so it is necessary to wash it after every application. If you are looking for a low budget and good hair oil, you can consider using Patanjali Kesh Kanti Amla Hair Oil. I like it
A little goes a long way
Refreshes the skin
the ads of of Lakme Blush and glow strawberry gel face wash which comes on the TV always tempted me to buy this face wash. I don't know if it was the catchy tune of the ad or the stress and frequent repetition of blush and glow in the ad that the next time I was in the market, and I saw this this face wash, I couldn't resist buying it. this face wash comes in a very cute packaging. the tube is translucent pink colour with the white cap. it shuts nicely ensuring no leakage or spillage. Also it makes it easier for us to carry in a purse. The face wash is gel like translucent pink in colour, with small beads in it. egg is an appearance of actually slushed up strawberries. it smells so Fruity and refreshing. Also the smell is not too strong. the face wash spreads well on the face, although it doesn't lather much, but still does the job of cleansing the face well. the beads in it act as an exfoliator, thereby giving the skin the benefits of a mild scrub. my skin is oily... this facewash does cleanses the dirt off the face and gives an overall refreshing feel but i can still see the oily layer on my skin. also the good thing is it doesnt give me any new pimples. it does nourish the skin, and moisturises it well.also it doesnt clog the pores which we, people with oily skin are most scared of. can't say about the blush but yes it definitely gives a glow on the skin. in my conclusion i would say it is best suited for dry to combination skin.,but me being an oily skin person still use it once a day for the refreshing feel it gives.
makes skin brighter
Can make your skin greasy
Though I do not believe in the concept of artificial fairness at all, yet a brighter skin is what I always like and want. Keeping this is mind I decided to use this cream. The actual pack of the product is smaller than it looks in the picture here. But I found it worth for the price. The pack is plastic tub. I found it easy to carry when travelling. Or else you can keep it inside your regular purse because of its handy size. The cream is of shiny white color and thick in consistency. It comes in just one stroke on your finger. Application is easy, it gets absorbed rapidly. Proper way to apply this cream is to wash clean your face and apply this cream with a little of massage. It will be absorbed completely. The cream contains SPF as well. It makes it a useful day cream. Though my skin is not sensitive, I felt that it is soft and mild in nature and will suit most of the skin types. Mine is a dusky complexion. I know about its claims of fairer skin, but what I felt is that it makes your skin brighter. I honestly cannot comment upon the fairness claim. But the texture of skin is good after its application. It gives the finish of a BB cream. It may help to glow your skin with a natural shine. The label claims that it has lemon extracts, possibly this is the cause behind its instant brightness which is perfectly fine. The only glitch is its efficacy on oily skin, I have a normal skin. But the oily patches likes chin area, forehead area etc, were quiet oily with this cream. Apart from that I like this Garnier Skin Naturals White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream SPF 17 for regular use.
Medium to full coverage
If you are not fond of much make up and want to minimize your vanity case or want to make your vanity box compact then this product is just for you. I have a wheatish dusky complexion with normal to mixed type skin; most of skin products suit me. As I am not fond of makeup I search efficient & cost effective solutions. The only problem with my facial skin is the tanned areas and my skin is sweaty. After much online research I decided to use this product as it has both concealer as well as foundation. It comes in a glass bottle with a well efficient & fitted pump which is perfect for a simple application. It dispenses the quantity that you desired and not even a single drop extra. I found that less than three pumps were more than enough to cover my whole face along with my neck. It is liquid in consistency. The application is indeed easy and effective. It gets absorbed in the skin within seconds. It will not give you a fair complexion but will make your skin look smoother and richer. It covers all the blackheads, blemishes or dark patches just like a concealer it conceals the dark areas; you just need to apply a little more drops on the target area as per your requirement. It gives you the look of foundation plus concealer in just one application. Thus, it is not necessary to carry & apply both foundation & the concealer. It feels light on the face and no heavy makeup feeling. Removing is easy & simple. You can use cleansing milk, makeup remover, rose water or cream of your choice followed by water. The only problem that I found is that it lasts about 3 hours only. After that a touch up is required as it starts to oxidize. Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation + Concealer come in a very affordable price. You can use it easily without thinking twice. I would recommend this product to the office going girls especially.
Mild on the skin
Not for dry skin
Patanjali is a brand that makes the products in a lower range. I used this face wash looking at its contents. I personally found that it is a decent face wash according to the price. One should not expect it to be magical product which can bring gross positive changes to the face. I use it when I come from office, after all the skin needs to be treated gently. So, based on its natural contents I thought I should let me skin breath. The product comes in a tube pack with a flip open pack. The packaging is fine and decent. The cap is efficient enough to cause any leakage. The product is thick in consistency and is translucent in color. The lather is enough to cover the face and neck. Only a little quantity is sufficient enough. The aroma is mild and refreshing, but do not expect the aroma to stay longer. The skin looks clean immediately. I personally feel that it suits the normal skin more. It may cause dryness, so dry skin people should use it after trail only. The price is cheap; you can easily purchase it without thinking about the price. It is good for daily use. It is not deep cleansing or much effective on skin tone. It is certainly not a fairness product. The label says that it has contents as neem, Tulsi & honey. I don’t about the others but honestly, I feel that is just an ordinary face wash but as per budget, it is certainly useful. You can use it in the morning when face deserves less chemicals & least cleaning after a night long sleep. I would not comment on its claims on pimples as I have used it for a few days only. Rest everything is just fine. You can use it daily on your skin.
Provides intense nourishment
Makes hair smooth
Makes the hair manageable
Prevents hair breakage
I love hair serums. As I have a wavy and frizzy hair, hair serum is a necessary part of my hair care routine. Being a working Mom I am not able to go to salon for proper care of my hair. So, to cut shot the time I use the products that satisfy my hair texture and type. I found L’Oreal Professionnel X-Tenso Care Serum online and decided to use it. I was not so impressed with the packaging and presentation of this serum. It comes in a transparent small bottle. It is colorless and watery in consistency. Though the use is simple still I feel that the packaging & presentation could be improved and made better. The fragrance is too good. It controls the frizz making the hair manageable. The serum comes handy in your palms; it spreads easily as the consistency not so thick, which I liked really. It makes us to apply it evenly on the hair strand. Use it in the following way- Shampoo your hair properly Towel dry your hair Take ample quantity of the serum on your palms and apply thoroughly on your hair strands throughout the length and thickness of your hair Though it is not needed to be applied on the scalp, still to treat extreme dry hair you can apply it on your scalp as well It helps to reduce split ends and enhance the shine of hair I found it extremely useful when you don’t have time to style your hair for a sudden party. Though the price is on a higher side and other Loreal serum comes in a less amount, still it serves its purpose well. So if you can stretch your budget a little and buy this serum, you will not regret. I would surely recommend L’Oreal Professionnel X-Tenso Care Serum to other too. Just give it a try.
Makes the skin soft and smooth
Moisturizes the skin
Stays for long hours
Makes the skin greasy
When winters arrive, the biggest trouble is dry skin. Though my skin is combination type and most products suit me well. Still I prefer to choose soft and safe products. The packaging is attractive; it comes in a blue pack. It is the signature color of Nivea. The cream is white in color; it’s quite greasy in texture but effective and serves the purpose. You need to rub and massage a little to make it absorb by your skin. A few gentle strokes and you are all done. The good thing is, it is so soft and gentle that it suits to all skin types. It has glycerine in it, which nourish and treat damage and dry skin. The moisture stays for about 4-6 hours, which is really appreciable. It is indeed efficient; you can feel softness and smoothness on your skin, instantly. Since my childhood, my mother used to apply Nivea cream repeatedly to my cheeks during winters. I live in Mumbai; the winters are not at all severe here. Still, from November till February the skin is drying. For that I keep on applying Nivea Cream on hands as my hands dries more. I use this cream for my daughter also, especially during winters and at nights when she takes a deep bath. Also, it is extremely good and effective to nourish the tanned & dull skin after a session of swimming. The only glitch is that it certainly does not suit in summers or humid weather like in Mumbai during summer season. It is greasy but I think it is because of the glycerine content to make it more effective. If you are looking for a soft and super moisturizing cream especially during winters then it is the choice for you. But for oily skin especially during summers it is quite not suitable. I always like it and it is a part of my regular skin care during winters. The price is so affordable that you can use it regularly.
Smoothens hair strands
Does not dry out the scalp
Pantene Pro V Total Damage Care Shampoo is just like a regular shampoo. It is okay to use it. The packing is quite attractive as white give an attractive look. The cap is leak proof and no trouble to store it. The consistency is fine, it is flowing and thick. It is better to mix it in water and make a bubble solution. Apply this shampoo water thoroughly in your wet and oiled hair. Rinse and rub properly and allow it to set for a few minutes. Now rinse with water and wash thoroughly. You may massage a little in on the scalp. Apply it in the whole length of your hair. You should use it at least twice a week, I would not say to use any shampoo daily as there is no need to shampoo our hair daily. Rather you can just wash your hair with water daily instead of shampooing it. It surely cleans the scalp and leaves the hair oil free. It is non-drying a does not take away the natural moisture of your hair. Do not forget to use a good quality hair conditioner after shampooing, for better results. It has lots of chemicals as per the label, but almost every beauty product has chemicals so I would not comment on the chemical effect on hair. It does not causes hair fall or even control it. Pantene Pro V Total Damage Care Shampoo is just to clean your scalp and hair and too add a shine to your hair. Use it regularly to add shine. The Price is affordable for a regular use. I did not find any particular negative thing or quality in this product. I would just add that it is an ordinary shampoo with a usual cleaning effect. Thus if you are looking for some extra ordinary shampoo to look after your damaged hair, you may find it under rated.
Reduces dark circles and puffiness
Makes the skin glow
Makes skin oily
My skin is wheatish fair and combination type. My main concerns are lack of softness on the facial skin and little blemish areas over the neck. Talking about Olay Natural White Day SPF 24 / PA ++ Glowing Fairness Cream, it comes in a white solid glass pack with translucent base. The packaging is quite okay but could be improved and made more attractive. The cream is thick and soft in texture. A coin like quantity is enough for an even application. I used it after washing my face with a deep cleansing face wash so I wanted softness and smoothness. I applied it with a little massage and it was absorbed easily and rapidly. Give a few circular motions on the face and over the neck. Massage from down to upside with light strokes until it gets absorbed. It is light in weight and does not feel as if something has been applied. This cream claims improve the skin tone. Though, a long term and regular use are required to see the real effects so I will not comment on its skin lightening effects. But yes it made the skin smooth in just a few days application. The skin is deeply nourished and moisturized after its use. What I like about this cream is the SPF content which adds to the benefit. It helps in protecting from sun rays but not for a longer period. Reapplication is needed. Talking about the thing that I did not like about it is the greasy texture which is a problem for me in summers as my skin is sweaty. So if you are looking for humid and hot weather, then this may not fulfill your expectations. But during the winters it really works well. I also felt that works well indoors when you have to sweat a lot. Overall, Olay Natural White Day cream actually is effective and helpful in making your skin soft and glow. It is also not so expensive or non-affordable so one can use it regularly.
Provides intense nourishment to hair
Minimizes hair fall
Reduces split ends
Helps detangle hair
Does not curb frizziness
Strong herbal smell
Patanjali is known for its natural contents. I read the ingredients of Patanjali Kesh Kanti hair Oil and got attracted towards it. It is specially designed for hair fall as per the claims. I used it and found it quite effective. My hair is wavy type and I am having premature greying of hair. For it I have to use hair color, I feel bad as I know hair colors harm our hair but I have no other option. Thus I wanted a product that can take care of my chemically treated hair and nourish them deeply. Talking about the oil, the packaging looks like that of a typical Ayurvedic medicine type; it did not impress me at all. The oil is dark colored and typical in consistency. It is quite thick. Application is simple just like any other hair oil. It is better to massage on the scalp at least for 15 minutes for good results. Use it at night for optimal results. It smells yuck, typical ayurvedic medicine type smell which is a negative point. Better to use a spare towel on your pillow in you want to save your pillow from staining. Next morning wash it with water first and then apply shampoo. Make a shampoo solution by mixing shampoo with water and make lather. Apply this thoroughly on scalp and strands of your hair. Allow to set for 1 minute and wash with ample water. It took me two wash to completely vain off the smell. But the hair was actually soft from the first application, as if nourished. Though I can’t comment actually about its anti hair fall claim as a long application is required for that. But apart from it the product is a super hit. It is cheap and easily affordable. It really nourished my chemically treated hair and made them soft. Give it a try at least once.
Reduces split ends
Protects against sun damage
Renews hair texture
Makes hair smoother
My hair is frizzy and wavy. The density is also not so impressive, that is why I have to be a little more cautious when it comes to hair care products. I heard about this serum and used it. The price is so affordable. You can use it regularly. It comes in a flip open bottle with a decent packing. All the instructions are clearly mentioned upon the bottle. The bottle is absolutely sturdy and does not leak at all. It is handy and easy to store. I always store it the bathroom only. You can also keep it in your vanity case. The consistency of this serum is just perfect, neither too fluid nor dense. It is just perfect to apply. It is non greasy and shiny when you take it in hands. After shampooing, towel dry your hair and it stops to drip water, take L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum and rub ample quantity on your palms. Now, apply the serum, more along the hair strands and least on the roots. Allow to set for a minute. You will surely notice a frizz free hair, it is instant to work. The hair is shiny and lustrous throughout the length. The protein content of L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum helps to repair the damaged hair. It is also easy to wash, you can wash it with plain water and it leaves no residue at all. You can use it a substitute of conditioner in emergency. The only trick thing as per my experience is that quantity, if you take it in more than required quantity your hair will look as if you have oiled it. Thus use a little quantity initially, when you know the requirement you can use appropriately. I would definitely recommend this to all my fellow Moms as we want a rapid and effective solution to control frizz.
Does not dry out lips
Difficult to remove
Needs an to be removed with an oil-based remover
I rarely use Lipstick that is why I want a real quality one when I want to purchase a lipstick. My personal liking is a lipstick should be light weight, attractive in color, smooth, looks natural, blend easily and not too costly. I am glad that I purchased this Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. The colors are pretty awesome. You will find your color out of its so many different shades for every skin type. I have a wheatish fair normal skin so I chose the RULER colored shade for party purpose. The packing is quite attractive; it comes in glass look pack. The applicator is super useful it helps in applying the lipstick just in one stroke. I have dry lips so I prefer using liquid lipsticks. Also, I eat a lip color too fast so I need a lip color that can stay longer even after licking the lips. It can stay up to 6 hours in just one application. The application is easy, it spreads easily. It keeps the lips moisturized so no more drying. It is absolutely light in weight. The finish is just perfect and smooth. It is quite non- drying for a longer period of time. It is better to apply the lipstick after using lip liner for a clear look. The only trouble I got is to remove it. The color stays even after a deep face wash. So if you want to remove it from lips, take a cotton bud and either take some cream or simple oil and then remove the lipstick. A few strokes will clean it off. Even after you have heavy meals you can rely on Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick as it will survive a full meal without getting faded. Though it start to fade a little from the sides but that is perfectly acceptable. I am satisfied with it and would recommend it to others too.
Contains natural ingredients
Softens rough hair
Cleanses oiliness, grime, and environmental toxins
Improves natural shine
safe for regular use
Has a strong medicinal smell
one application is not so effective, need to reapply
I have a wavy hair with a normal to oily scalp. Thus most of hair care products suit my scalp and hair. But I want something natural for regular use. I have to wash hair at least thrice a week as I have to go to the office by train only and my hair has to face a lot of wear and tear regularly. That is the reason I prefer using safe and natural hair products for regular use. Patanjali Kesh Kanti Shikakai Hair Cleanser attracted me because of its ingredients; the shikakai is natural hair cleanser which keeps the shine and nourishes the hair. It comes in a white solid bottle pack with a flip open lid, thus the packing is quite simple and easy. It has shikakai, bhringaraj, sugarcane, etc. as per the label which is all natural contents. Coming on the application, the bottle is leak proof and the texture of this shampoo thick and smooth. I mix a little quantity of shampoo with water and apply this shampoo water on my hair & allow setting for 1 minute or so. The lather is just enough; you may need more quantity as per your hair length. Wash it with ample of water. It is better to apply it more on the scalp to have proper cleaning. The effects are quite satisfying. It does clean the scalp, though not much effective on dandruff, still manages to clean the scalp. It does not dry the hair and that what I liked about it. The hair is soft and smooth but not silky. You need to apply proper hair conditioner after shampooing your hair if you want silky hair. One positive thing is that you can use it regularly as it has mostly the natural contents. Just the herbal smell may irritate you, for that you can use a leave-in hair serum. I would recommend this shampoo to those who want a pocket-friendly and regular use shampoo.
Easy to use
Deeply cleanses your skin
Not for dry skin
does not suit every skin type
I have a mixed skin tone, thus most beauty products suits my skin. Though I rarely get blackheads, still a few really small blackheads develop on my nose areas often, I found it inconvenient to use the conventional blackhead removal methods, like using tweezers. Thus after reading some online reviews, I used Charcoal Mask Cream for the purpose of removal of the small blackheads from my nose. The product comes in a tube packing, packing is not so impressive (at least for me). I used it after washing my face and after taking a few minutes of steam on the face (hot towel method). You need to take a sufficient quantity of the product. It should cover the whole of your face in a normal to a thick layer. Do not apply it with a brush; rather application from a finger is more easy & fast. Let it dry completely (may take around 20 minutes), removal part is the most tricky one. As per my use, I will suggest you to try removing it from outer to inner side of face; means try to remove from edges. Start from the forehead, from side locks to cheeks, likewise from the lower neck to upper part of the neck. Try to roll slowly and it will remove in a peel only. I agree that it was not painless, though bearable but it was painful. It also took some of my facial hair, which is a plus point. It was actually effective on blackheads, whiteheads and the dirt removal from the nose area. The skin was actually shining. I was quite satisfied with it. Just I feel that it is not suitable for dry skin as this product itself causes skin dryness. I would say that the Charcoal mask cream is suitable for those who have gross blackheads and whiteheads. It makes the skin smooth I also like the complete and simple instructions given on the pack.
Nourishes scalp and hair roots
more quantity is needed
I used Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser for quite a while and based on my personal experience I will give it a 3.5 star rating. It comes in a white bottle with a purple colored flip cap. The consistency is light green and it is thick in texture. I was not so impressed with the packing but looking at the cost it is justified. It has all the natural contents as claimed by the label, which is actually impressive. One can use it without any recommendation. The ideal way to use this shampoo is- Wet your hair Mix ample quantity in a little of water making a shampoo solution Apply this shampoo water all over your scalp skin including the entire length of your hair strands Massage a little on scalp Leave at least for a minutes especially if you want to remove the dandruff Wash with ample of water Use suitable conditioner What I liked the most is that, the contents are all safe and non allergic. It suited my skin well. Though I am not suffering from much dandruff yet white scales are there especially in summers. It worked well and cleaned my scalp. It is surely not a permanent solution for dandruff but you can use it daily and it will not cause any harm because of its contents. The only problem that I faced was the herbal and strong smell of this shampoo and it remains even after the application of conditioner. Patanjali Kesh Kanti Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser is a perfect and cheap solution for a regular and daily use. I personally used it even without oiling my hair and it did not cause any dryness. So, in case of emergency when you do not have time to oil your hair also when you don’t want to harm your scalp then go for this one.
Does not clog pores
Provides rich nourishment
provide long-lasting moisturization
As I am a working mother, I rarely get chance & time to pamper or take care of skin. Especially the facial skin needs more care because of continuous exposure to the pollutants and wear & tear. Night cream is a simple way to take care of your facial skin. On a friends suggestion I bought this L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Night Cream. I used it for a while and would say that I was quite satisfied with the effects. It comes in a transparent glass pack. Honestly the packaging could be more attractive; I am not so impressed by the packing. A coin size quantity is sufficient to get spread all over the face and neck. It is important to apply a night cream on neck as well. It gets absorbed easily in just one gentle application with a little massage. Regular use is a must. Also, you need to be careful to remove all the makeup first, wash your face with a suitable face wash and then only apply this cream. My skin is mixed type so I did not get any side effects or burning or any such sensation using this cream. It is safe. It did not cause any acne or breakouts. My skin was supple and soft after every application. It works well on fine lines but you need to be regular for that. It also work well on blemishes (though I don’t have a blemish prone skin but a very few tanned areas there on my face), it worked well on the darkened area. It is not a skin lightening cream at all nor did it help in improving skin tone. But for sure the texture of skin becomes good. It gently softened the tanning and made it better. L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Night Cream is a good option; just the price is on a higher side. I would like to give it a four-star rating!
Cleanses the scalp effectively
Makes hair shiny and soft
Strengthens the hair
Controls split ends
Does not dry the scalp
Smells so good
More quantity is required
This product attracted me after I saw Aishwarya Rai doing the promotion. I did some research and used it. The product is nice. As my hair is of normal wavy texture, I needed a shampoo which does not dry or takes away the shine of my hair. In my hair care routine, I oil my hair with a good massage and leave overnight. Next day morning I wash my hair. With L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Advanced Repairing Shampoo, I felt I had to take a little more quantity for full coverage of my hair. My hair is of shoulder length that is why I have applied the shampoo twice, once for the scalp and once for the length. As per my experience, I will suggest you use this product as follows- Leave the oil overnight, so that your hair will be deeply conditioned Mix the desired quantity in a little water rather than applying directly to the hair. I use a small mug for the purpose. Now apply this shampoo water all over your scalp and the length of hair strands. Give a little massage over your scalp Allow it to set for at least 2 minutes Now wash with normal to cold water. Do not use warm water Do not forget to apply conditioner after its use. It is non-drying and soft for the scalp. Hair was shiny and smooth after its use. I really liked the aroma which stays for long. The only feature that I was not so comfortable with was its chemical contents. Although as per label the contents are all in a safe limit. I will give a four-star to this shampoo looking at its efficacy of removing oil and the aroma. The overall performance is totally satisfying.
Very gentle and mild
Prevents irritation and allergies
Cleanses the scalp and hair well
Does not lather well
more quantity is required to wash heavy oil
I always choose the best for my girl. She likes to have long hair that is the reason that I have to oil her hair and keep them clean. As she sweats a lot, her scalp becomes dry and itchy. For a healthy scalp and hair, it is always recommended to keep the scalp clean, regular hair wash also help in keeping the bacteria and infection at bay. I used this shampoo and found it a good one. It is free of soap. Thus it does not dry the hair and scalp.
I like it's mild and natural fragrance. It is gentle and mild. I mix it in a little quantity of water, make a lather and then apply this shampoo water on her hair evenly. Massaging the scalp slowly helps to clean the skin of the scalp as well. As it is sulfate free and the brand has s global presence of around 125 years, I trust it. It gives no rash, no irritation, and no burning or any other issue like that. The label says it all. I use this shampoo for my 3.5 years old daughter every three days. On other days, I wash her scalp & hair with plain water.
The results are satisfying. Her hair is soft and shiny as it is mild in nature. I have to take care that the shampoo does not spill in her eyes, as it burns and they can’t bear it. The only issue with me was that if you are washing a heavily oiled hair, you will need to reapply it as the lather is less. The plus point is its affordability, travel-friendly, and anti-leak packaging. It is Paraben free and hypo allergic. I also use it for my hair sometimes, especially when I have to wash hair but without prior oiling. I would suggest to definitely give it a try.
Effects last for 2-3 days
Ideal for oily scalp
Cleanses the scalp
Does not dry out hair
Imparts a cooling sensation while shampooing
May not be suitable for dry scalp
I have a normal scalp with a ways texture of hair. During summers I sweat a lot because of which my scalp becomes super itchy and prone to untidy looks. As I am a working person, I can’t devote time to go to a salon for hair care neither can I leave them un-tidy. That is why I yearn for a shampoo which is effective to clean the oil from the scalp. On a friend’s recommendation, I gave a try to L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Clay Purifying & Hydrating Shampoo. I usually oil my hair twice a week and leave the oil overnight for deep conditioning.
I preferably wash them the next morning. When I opened the pack the fragrance attracted me. The texture was smooth and easy to use. I always mix a little quantity of shampoo with water making a shampoo solution and apply this on my scalp. The lather was just sufficient to cover my hair. After a few minutes of massaging, I wash my hair with water. It washes off easily with no remnant. No need to reapply the shampoo even after heavy oiling in hair. It cleaned the scalp completely.
The hair is completely oil free and fresh. I found it absolutely safe and effective. The fragrance stays for a long period and it is so attractive. It is better to use in moderation if you have dry hair as this product is specially designed for oily to normal hair. It may make your scalp drier if you already have a dry scalp. So, use accordingly. The hair stays free of grease and oil for more than 3 days. If you want a real shiny hair then I will suggest you use conditioner after every wash with shampoo. Your hair will become shiny, fresh and manageable completely.
Prevents split ends
Repairs damaged hair
My hair is wavy and after every hair-wash, they get tangled. But this serum worked so well for especially the tangled hair that I am regularly using it. The best way to use L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum as per my personal use is- After hair, wash towel dry your hair and wait until water stops to drip from the hair Take ample quantity of the serum and rub on palms Apply evenly on the strands of your hair Allow settling for 2 minutes Now comb your hair and appreciate zero tangle The texture is watery and transparent.
It has a very fresh and distinctive fragrance which I found so attractive. It is non-sticky and non-greasy, it spreads quickly and gives the desired result within 2-3 minutes only. It also controls the frizz, though not for a long time but still at least for the day. It repairs intensely damaged hair. It helped me to improve the texture of my hair and added shine to my hair. As the name suggests it is “Repairing” serum, you can leave it in your hair and can use daily. It not only detangles hair but also it makes the hair strand smooth ad if some protein covering is there on the hair. Only a small quantity is enough for the desired effects.
You can also use it as a styling product. Though the ingredients show chemicals I did not find any harm. It suits almost every skin and hair type. For dry hair, this product is a must to have. Now it has become a ritual for me to oil my hair leaving overnight, washing the next morning, applying conditioner and as an intensive repair treatment applying L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum. You can also use it as a styling product for your hair for a light party look.

It helped me a lot to deal with my skin issues. My skin specialist told me that the aging is inevitable, but we can delay this process and for that, we have to start taking care of our skin in the early thirties only. He also told me that our skin starts losing its texture after 30; the first sign of aging might be fine lines, dullness or loss of shine. An easy way to take care of our skin is to apply a good night cream after washing your skin every night.
The content of L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream includes essential oil and supplements that help to firm the skin and moisturize it from within. After a friend’s suggestion, I started applying this cream and after a month I noticed a healthy plump in my skin. It gets absorbed easily. A little massage is more than enough to make it absorbed in our skin. It is neither too greasy nor too liquid; the texture is just perfect for an easy application. After application, the skin feels supple and moisturized. It is light weight and no heaviness at all on skin.
The effects may be individual and may vary from person to person. As per my experience, I will suggest to use it in the following way- Wash your face with a good face cleanser Wipe the skin Take a coin size quantity of the cream Apply liberally in circular strokes on cheeks, nose, forehead and other parts of your face along with your neck Apply regularly before going to bed I felt a good change after a regular application of 30 days. But I was so impressed with the results that I started using it daily. The price is on a little higher side, apart from this I did not find any other flaws in this product.
Smoothens hair strands
Easily washed out
Can be applied on both damp and dry hair
Prevents hair breakage
Not long lasting
I have wavy hair. As I am a working Mother I hardly find time to take care of my hair or skin. I rarely go to the hair salon. Also, I have to wash my hair before going to the office and I leave in wet hair only. They get tangled so much that I have to suffer a lot to comb them. One of my friends gifted me a bottle of the body shop grape seed-glossing serum. The first day I applied it in wet hair; I took a handful quantity of this serum and applied to the strands of my wet hair.
To my surprise when I combed my hair, no tangle was there. The hair was non-frizzy and smooth. The actual contents of this product include protein concentrate which makes our hair smooth. If you want to get a comb friendly and manageable hair then you should use this serum. Take enough quantity of the serum on your palms and apply only on the lengths of hair and rub a little. Allow it to settle down for around 2 minutes.
Comb now to get a tangle free hair. It also helped me get ready for a party looks many times. The fragrance is just awesome and fresh. I keep this in my handy vanity case. It is lightweight and non-greasy. It can be applied on both wet as well as dry hair. It can replace a hair styling product when you don’t have time to get party ready. As it is made up of high quality concentrated protein, it nourishes the hair strands deeply. The only cons that I found were the cost and that it is short lasting and need reapplication after a few hours. It is easy to carry, simple to apply and effective and safe. So I will give a 4 plus to this product.

Not 100% transfer-proof
Not suitable for lining lips
I am not very fond of Lipsticks as I rarely use them that is why I always choose the best in my collection. As my lips are somewhat dry in texture for which I have to apply lip balm, again and again, I prefer moisturizing lip colors and lipsticks only. I liked these Lipsticks by Lakme because of the awesome shades that are available. I chose two of them and I never regret my decision. The packing is sturdy. The lipstick has a shape that makes it easy to apply even when in a hurry.
What I liked the most is that you need not apply or use Lip balm before the lipstick as it is already very smooth and moisturizing. It spreads easily and application is simple. It stays for long, as per my experience 4-6 hours is the minimum time that it can stay. The shades are perfect for every skin tone. I have a wheatish fair skin so I chose Mauve magic and Peach magnet. Lips feel fuller after the application. For a perfect application, I will personally suggest you apply lip liner first, as the lipstick can’t be used as a liner (as per its shape) the effect is great.
I personally found that it was not 100% non- transferrable. Means when you eat or drink, the color will transfer. So you have to reapply it after eating or drinking. The removal is easy. You should apply a cream lotion to a cotton bud and them with massaging, remove the color from Lips. After removing, my lips were not at all dry or rough. It does not feel heavy on the lips. The matt finish is just the perfect one. Apply these Lip crayon from the centre of your upper lip towards the outer edges. Then, apply on your lower lip. Match with the natural contours of your lips.

A little messy during summers
My mother gave me one useful advice for a healthy hair when I was beginning my college life, she still sticks to it “whatever you do to your hair, just massage them with coconut oil at least twice a week”. I trust her choices. I am following her advice since then. It is my routine to oil my hair twice a week with pure coconut oil and leaves it overnight before washing. It minimizes the effects of chemicals and pollution on our hair.
It is natural and adds shine to the hair too. When I think of coconut hair, I think of parachute as my mother used it on me. We can rely on it. The contents are skin friendly, it has lauric acid and rich in protein, it is good for our hair and scalp. It is absorbed by our skin and offer deep conditioning. I am a working mother so I hardly find time for hair care. I am not able to go to a salon for hair care, thus the simplest thing that I do is that I massage my hair, take steam (hot towel method) and leave it overnight. This ensures blood circulation to scalp cells and also relaxes the pressure point. Now that I am a mother, I massage my girl’s hair too with Parachute coconut oil.
I leave it in her hair for about two days and then wash it off. It gives me the most satisfying results. I just found one little issue, It is quite messy during summers. To manage the same I use a little quantity with water and do the massage as usual. I will surely recommend it to all the girls and mommies for themselves and for their kids. Oil regularly and get smooth and shiny hair. Happy oiling!
