I had purchased Aroma Magic Jojoba Oil during one of the marriages in my family. When I came to know that it has many uses like- conditioning the skin, unclogging the pores as well as removing makeup, I had to buy it. The multipurpose oil is not oil in true sense. It is very similar to the natural oil which is found in the human skin thereby having no side effects. After the purchase, I was having doubts about whether the oil will suit my skin or make it more oily. I was overthinking as this oil is very lightweight and non-greasy. While using it on my skin, I found that it got absorbed readily. In the process of removing makeup also, it did not make my face feel oily. I was satisfied with the cleansing process of this oil. After coming from the day's work, I use Aroma Magic Jojoba Oil to remove the dirt and grime from my skin.

I came across MAC Bulk Wipes as I was rushing towards the airport. We were travelling for vacation and suddenly realised that we had not packed wipes with us. Truth be told, though the wipes are of good quality they are super pricey. Since there was no other option with the seller we had to purchase them. They are wet wipes and can be used for many purposes. Whether it is makeup, grime, dirt or smudges on your face, the wipes can be used for all. The good point is that these wet wipes clean the face thoroughly and make your face clean. One can also use them cleansing the face before putting on the makeup. The product claims to contain Vitamin E which can reduce blemish and soften the skin. However, I couldn't find any such changes on my skin when I was using the wipes. I did not find any such remarkable thing about these wipes which makes them different from other reasonably priced wet wipes.
Convenient to use
I brought this product for my younger girl. She has dry skin which becomes drier with the change of temperature or seasons. Such type of skin has always been a cause of discomfort for my child. My kid is a swimmer but staying in water for very long was reducing the moisture present in the skin. Problems like itchiness and rashes were becoming common. I was really worried about how to help my child out when I read about this product in one of the online sites. The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream says about being soap-free. It also has ingredients like shea butter, sesame oil, sunflower oil and glycerin in it. The vitamins present in shea butter help in moisturizing the skin. The other ingredients like glycerin, hydrates the skin, sesame oil tries to soften it, and sunflower seed oil moisturizes it. I was relieved when I came to know that it has been manufactured especially to nourish dry skin. This very factor made me go for this product immediately. Even the price is reasonable which is an added plus point. I have been using this product from this past summer and I am so satisfied with its result. My kid's skin has become smoother to touch than it was before. All the essential oils present in the product help in keeping her skin moisturised for longer periods. Her skins itch less now. The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream comes in a creamy texture and its nutty fragrance is pleasant. after bathing from it, I don't even feel the need to apply moisturiser or body lotion on my kid's skin. The ingredients of this shower gel do that work. I can see my child is more comfortable in her skin now and that makes me so happy, thanks to this product.

Lakme is a brand which comes with an assurance of quality and affordable price. Never have I ever been disappointed with its products. So when my elder girl was looking for organising her first-ever makeup kit, I couldn't help but recommend Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact to her. As the box of this product says, it has Advanced MiCremesh and Allantoin complex formula to soften the skin and protect from pollution. Not only this it has the advantage of vitamin E and C which is helpful for the skin nourishment. Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact has SPF23 which makes it the right choice for day makeup as well. It protects the skin while moving out in the sun. I can see a soft glow on the application. It has a matte finish which I am fond of. It has powder puff along with, to apply it on the go. The container is travel-friendly and easy to carry in small pouches even. I could easily get the perfect shade for my girl as there are around six shades to choose the best match for one's skin. I was particular about the cosmetic being lightweight which does not block the pores of the skin or makes it dull. Lakme Compact was a good choice in that sense. The skin tone lightens up with the presence of skin brightening pearls, multi-minerals and Vitamin B3. The compact blends well over the skin and doesn't appear in patches. It holds the makeup well without giving the feeling of drying. The goodness of vitamins easily makes it a product for daily use. My daughter has been using it for a couple of months and I have not observed any skin problems on her face so far. The affordable pricing makes it a perfect catch.

My parents use this soap daily. This soap is perfect for their skin as their skin tends to get dry more frequently with age and because of the weather in their area. Lifebuoy has been a trusted brand for many years and its products have always been accepted by masses here. This product is also no exception. Lifebuoy Care Soap Bar has the goodness of milk cream which helps in protecting the skin from becoming dry. Along with cleaning the body from impurities and germs it also protects it from losing moisture. The presence of milk cream softens the skin to an extent. Lifebuoy Care Soap Bar has been made for sensitive skin which is more prone to damage. It is a good choice for my parents as it has dual functions of protecting and cleaning. It creates good lather after applying. The delicate fragrance of the soap is a bonus.
Suitable for sensitive skin
I have been using deodorants from Fogg for a very long time. So when I came across this Fogg Scent Beautiful Secret Eau De Parfum for Women, I didn't give it much thought before purchasing it. Fogg comes out with fragrances which define a strong and bold persona and this perfume didn't disappoint me at all. It is unlike the traditional fragrances which are usually available in the market. The aroma defines the woman of today. It has a sort of mysterious smell which keeps you guessing. The vibe is neither too strong nor too delicate. The aroma isn't very flowery which I am appeased about. It can be easily used as daily wear or for casual night parties. The fragrance lasts long for almost 12 hours and is also anti-bacterial in nature. This gentle yet strong, long-lasting Fogg Scent Beautiful Secret Eau De Parfum for Women is definitely a good product to purchase.
Prevents odor and bacteria build-up
I cannot say enough about this product. For me, Baby Dove Rich Moisture Bar has always been one of the best soaps to use for babies. I used it for both of my kids from the time when they were born. I still ask them to wash their faces with this Rich Moisture Bar whenever their skin starts feeling dry due to weather or climate change. We always keep a spare in our home for my kids which are yet to be grown up enough to use Face Washes. I had strongly recommended this even to my sister when her kids were born and she was extremely satisfied with the results. My younger one has a skin which is dry in nature. From her birth, she had sensitive skin which was always a cause of worry for me. I have been always cautious to use only good quality products for sensitive skin for her. The Baby Dove Bar claims to have a hypoallergenic formula along with pH neutral formula. These help in replenishing the balance of the moisture which has been lost by the skin. Since a baby's skin is thinner and more prone to moisture loss compared to adults, this product is a must-have for all new mothers out there. It is gentle on the skin of a baby and the mild fragrance is pleasing. One can feel the softness of the skin which has been bathed with this bar. Many ophthalmologists, dermatologists, and paediatricians recommend it when there are occurrences of skin problems amongst the babies. I have also used Baby Dove Rich Moisture Bar for cleansing my face at times and I like how the skin feels so clean yet soft after using it. Definitely recommend it.

The high point of this product is that it is a multipurpose gel. This was the main turning point which convinced me to purchase this product. Not to forget that it was a product from The Face Shop. Having used it for a couple of months now, I can surely say that it was not a bad choice at all. It is having herbal ingredients which relieve you from the tension of having any side effects. The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel is said to have the goodness of nine natural plant extracts. There are aloe leaf extract and aloe barb adenosis among the other. The soothing gel can be used for both body and face. It, as the name suggests, soothes the irritation in the skin and provides a cooling effect when used. It is probably due to the presence of Aloe Vera, one of the active ingredients in this gel. The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel can be used in many ways. It can be used as a moisturiser, a sunscreen as well as a face mask. When applied on the skin it is cool to touch but non-sticky. One needs to rub it gently over the skin to let the ingredients seep into. As there is a complete absence of parabens, artificial colour, benzophenone or animal oil, this product is very safe to use and can be directly applied to the skin. After applying it as a moisturiser, the skin feels quite soft and smooth to touch. It acts as a face mask if one applies it as a layer on the face and keeps it just like that for a while before washing it away or rubbing it in. The results of using it have been satisfactory for me until now as my skin feels hydrated.

With so many herbal Face washes available easily in the market it becomes really difficult to choose a particular one immediately. When I come across such situations, then I always tend to look into the ingredients. It is to see whether there is a presence of any chemical in that product or not. This helps me to clear away any confusion if any. So, this was how I could end up buying Medimix Ayurvedic Herbs Face Wash. The product has Neem, Turmeric, Aloe vera as its main ingredients. Along with it, there is a presence of herbs like Lodhra, Kushtha, and Manjishtha in this face wash. The product is free of soap as well as paraben. That is why it does not lather up much while using it. Medimix Ayurvedic Herbs Face Wash cleanses the skin gently of all the dirt and impurities. It also reduces the oil secretion in the skin thereby reducing the problems of acne. Since I have combination skin, I can feel the reduction of oil secretion in my T-Zone. The product claims to be suitable for all skin types but I would not recommend it for dry skin especially during the seasons when there is less moisture in the air. The product also says about the rejuvenating of skin and improving the complexion. I haven't observed any improvements in skin complexion but yes there has been a considerable reduction in inflammation. Medimix Ayurvedic Herbs Face Wash comes in a squeezy tube with a flip-open cap. The face wash has a gel-like tendency and is greenish in colour. The fragrance of this product is nothing out of the ordinary. It is just like how most of the herbal products smell. However, I must say that the price is affordable which is a very positive point

When my colleague who is also a very good friend of mine reached her mid-thirties, she started looking for an anti-ageing cream. It was then we came across this product. Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream is the perfect product which my friend was looking for. It comes with SPF 18 PA++ and is prepared with advanced technology. The cream is said to contain Retinol-C Complex that penetrates deep into the skin to release anti-ageing retinoid actives continuously for 24 hours. They help in making the skin firm and prevent sagging or formation of wrinkles. It is a day cream which can be worn immediately after taking a bath. My friend used to first wear this cream and then apply light makeup over it. The cream treats wrinkles and makes the skin appear radiant. The nourishing ingredients like Vitamin B3 and E help in strengthening the skin and make it soft to touch. The various ingredients present in Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream also protect the skin from environmental damage. She used to apply the cream twice daily - before going to work in the morning and after coming from the work when she had cleansed her face. Applying in a circular motion with light pressure helps the cream to penetrate in all parts of the skin. Within a month of usage, I could see that her skin had become even. The unevenness in the skin had reduced considerably and her dark spots had also lightened. The Ponds cream had also helped in lightening her skin complexion. She herself said after a couple of months that her wrinkles were becoming lighter especially near the eyes. The cream itself is non-greasy and doesn't feel heavy on your skin. With its affordable price, it is the best bet.

As a working woman, I come across several occasions when suddenly we have a gathering to attend or a party to go to. The circumstances sometimes are such that one can't even say no. I really panic in such situations as there is so less time for prepping ourselves. One cannot go looking dull and tired in an important gathering. These were such troublesome moments for me until I came across this awesome product. I came to know about VLCC Party Glow Facial Kit through my cousin. She herself being an air hostess knew the ups and downs of working in such situations. She recommended me this product which is said to provide the much-needed instant healthy glow to the skin on special occasions. The facial kit claims to give a salon-like facial experience at home. It removes dead skin cells and brightens up the complexion in no time. The VLCC Party Glow Facial Kit consists of four packets - Indian Berberry Face Scrub, Saffron Massage Gel, Snigdha Face Cream, and Insta-Glow Face Pack. These four packets make one kit which is for one-time use. The ingredients are herbal in nature so there is no risk of side effects. The facial kit mainly aims to clear away the dull and dehydrated skin, making the facial skin youthfully radiant. The extract of Date and presence of papaya in the scrub helps in gentle scrubbing away of all the dead skin on your face. The extracts of mulberry and saffron present in the massage gel help in improving the skin texture giving it a natural glow and making it soft and smooth. The lemon peel present in the face cream helps in protecting the skin from dehydrating thereby keeping the moisture intact. The face pack unblocks the pores and lightens the facial hair. All in all, a good product and a time saviour.

I had heard about Bioderma products but never had a chance of using them until a year ago. Though they were good in quality but came out to be too expensive. It was a pinch in the pocket. However, this summer I had to purchase the product as I was developing a few skin problems due to the harsh sun. My skin was tanning quickly and I felt that even the skin texture was becoming coarse day by day. Though the cream is expensive I have heard about its good results. So, I went ahead and purchased it. The product Bioderma Photoderm Max Cream has a biological patent referred to as “Cellular Bio protection.” This Cellular Bio protection helps in activating the natural defences of the skin and makes them stronger to fight with the damages happening due to environmental factors. Bioderma Cream is also said to heal cellular damage and protect the skin from further such damages. The pigmentation gets in check with the usage of this cream. With an SPF of 50+, this cream also offers UVA/UVB protection from the sun. The Bioderma Photoderm Max Cream comes in a yellow coloured squeezy tube which is slim in shape thereby making it travel friendly. The cream inside is light with a smooth texture. It gets absorbed easily when applied. Does not feel heavy at all after application. The skin gives a brightened look as soon as you wear the cream. Although I would suggest not to put heavy makeup after applying the cream as it does not act as a good base layer. All in all, it is a good product which helps in protecting the skin from getting damaged due to the harsh sun. However, the only factor which doesn't sit well with me is its price.

Lately, I have got this new hobby of trying out various face masks from different brands. When it comes to the Innisfree brand, I do not think twice. This brand from Korea is well known for its beauty products especially the skincare line. I have tried one another variety of mask fro Innisfree and loved it. So when I came across the Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Green Tea, I had no qualms in trying it. The Green Tea Mask is a water-like mask which is said to be prepared from delicately fragrant green tea that moisturizes the skin. This mask is said to be very effective for oily and combination skins. I have combination skin and hence I was good to go for this product. One can apply the mask after cleansing and toning the face thoroughly. The mask is super thin, transparent sheet. You need to be careful unfolding it and applying it over your face with a fear of tearing it. However, once placed properly, this mask sticks to your skin. I have used masks before and I could feel that due to its thinness this mask was covering my face better in every curve and corner. There is a small cute handle provided on the top of the mask for easy removal. The packet will tend to have some of the liquid essences left and I would advise you to use it gently by rubbing it on your neck and other parts which are not covered by this mask. The formula used in this mask is of water, essence, and cream. It is prepared from Jeju Green Complex that replenishes moisture on the skin. The product says that Jeju Green Complex contains green tea, white lotus, orchid, tangerine, and camelia. The mask can be kept for around 20 minutes

My younger one has dry skin since birth and I have been always cautious to try out products for her. When she was a toddler, I could take care of her skin problems every now and then as she used to be in front of my eyes. The problems started when she began her schooling. When she went into the mainstream of schooling, her hours in the school increased. I couldn't be there for her all the time. Also with the activites happening in the school, my kid used to sweat and then it used to cause itching on her dry skin. She used to come back every afternoon complaining about it. Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion came as a rescue for my kid. The lotion is said to be is clinically proven to hydrate the skin for 24 hours. The moisturizing formula present in this product is said to be long-lasting and works well on very dry skin. All these claims helped me purchase this product for my child. The presence of Epidermal Replenishing Complex 5 in Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion restores the moisture in dull skin. I use this lotion on my child's body immediately after the bath before going to school. Since the moisturizing effect of this lotion lasts for a long time, my kid remains problem-free during school hours. The best part of this lotion is that it can be used by all age groups. With the change in seasons, I use this lotion if I find that my skin is getting drier or sensitive. Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion is like a family lotion now which helps us in fighting dry skin problems. My kid comes back happily from the school without any complaints.

My sister gifted this product to me when she visited me from USA. She herself uses this BB Cream and was all ga-ga about it. It came at the right time to me as with age, the problems on my skin had also started increasing. Due to this, I had to be very careful while purchasing makeup products lest they create more problems. It was a good chance that I came across The Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions BB Cream as it is specially designed for such skin types. It is a mattifying BB cream that takes care of oil control, offers UVA/UCV protection, and provides shine-free complexion. The medicated ingredients present in this BB cream helps in treating existing skin problems and preventing further occurrence. The cream itself is very lightweight and easy to apply. One needs to shake it well before application to guarantee an even tone all over the face. The cream is long-lasting.

Kaya is a well known brand in the skincare industry. It is known for its good products which aim to provide healthy and problem-free skin to everyone. One such product of Kaya is their Brightening Beads Cleanser. This is a non-foaming cleanser which is enriched with various Vitamins to help in skin nourishment. Kaya Brightening Beads Cleanser contains small beads like structures which gently exfoliates the skin. This helps in removing the dead cells and smoothening the surface. The skin feels softer after the exfoliation process. The cleanser enriched with Vitamins like B3 and E helps in rejuvenating the skin giving it a glow. This facial cleanser is available in a white coloured squeezy tube which is easy to carry anywhere. The flat cap allows the product to be placed upside down easily thereby making it ready to use every single time. The face wash doesn't lather much but it does make you feel fresh and clean instantly. The lightweight and non-sticky formula of this face wash moisturizes and nourishes the skin. Kaya Brightening Beads Cleanser is said to lighten the complexion up to two tones with regular use. I have been using this product over a month. Every day, after coming back home from work, I use this cleanser to wash my face. I would not say it as a pure face wash product as it also exfoliates. On one hand, I have found that it really makes me instantly fresh and gives a feeling of the skin getting brightened but on the other hand, the claim of lightening the complexion is yet to be seen. Now, my skin doesn't feel dull or dry any more when I use this face cleanser.

Cinthol is one brand which is very close to my heart as it makes me remember my childhood days. It used to be our family soap. The smell of Cinthol was something which I still remember today. That is why, whenever I get a chance I buy this soap if I come across it. I was lucky this month to see it in one of the local stores and couldn't help myself from purchasing it. Cinthol Original Soap is a bathing bar which has been recommended by many doctors as well. It has been formulated for healthy and glowing skin as it reduces various skin problems with its regular use. Various skin problems like rashes, acne etc have been said to be reduced with this bathing bar. Its affordable pricing makes it a good purchase. Cinthol Original Soap comes in two sizes as per individual requirement. The aroma of this product is long-lasting and very appealing. One feels so fresh after bathing with this soap.

Parachute is a name known in every household of India. The famous brand for hair oil has brought out ayurvedic hair oil. The Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Gold Hair Oil has been made to reap the benefits of Ayurveda in solving the common hair problems like hair fall, dandruff, itchy scalp and rough hair with split ends. The oil is free of any chemicals and contains only ayurvedic ingredients in it. I had started using this hair oil about a couple of months back. With the change in the season, I had incurred a severe problem of dandruff which was causing hair fall and itchy scalp. I was not in favour of any medicines or treatment and hence ended up purchasing this hair oil. As a regular user of Parachute Hair Oil, I had no hesitation in buying this product. The Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Gold Hair Oil has no artificial ingredients in it. It is completely made up of naturally available ingredients. The hair oil feels slightly heavy after its application. I advise you to put it during the night time before sleeping or an hour before taking head bath. One needs to gently massage the hair oil on the scalp so that it penetrates deep inside the scalp and nourishes the hair from within. The massage with this hair oil also helps in increasing the blood circulation. There has been an improvement in the condition of my hair. I would say that the progress is slow but it is steady. The hair fall has become less than before. The problem of dandruff which caused skin irritation has also reduced to an extent. My hair has grown longer as well. Overall I am satisfied with the performance of this hair oil by Parachute

Sometimes it happens to you that you purchase the products on a whim and then realise that you have hit a jackpot. Same happened to me when I purchased this cute orangey squeezy bottle of Jovees Papaya Face Wash. The colour of this face wash had me hooked and I ended up buying this product from my local drug store. I was not very sure whether this product will be good or not. However, my doubts were in vain. Jovees Papaya Face Wash is a facial cleanser with mild exfoliation. It consists of tiny orange beads that help in gentle exfoliation of your skin. It has mainly the extracts of Papaya and the enzyme of this fruit help in removing dead skin cells and inactive proteins. The face wash is in gel form and made of natural ingredients.

There are three variants when you go to purchase Revlon Charlie Perfume Body Spray- Red, Blue and Gold. When I went purchasing it as a gift for my sister, I chose to buy Revlon Charlie Red Perfume Body Spray. The Gold and Blue perfumes were too flowery and sweet. In my personal opinion, I found them more befitting fragrances for various parties and events rather than being worn all day long. I chose the Red Perfume Body Spray as the aroma was feminine and woodier. The amalgamation of the floral and woody aroma is pleasant to the senses. It does not come out either too sweet or too tangy. I liked the base notes of musk, oakmoss and sandalwood present in this body spray. After I gifted it to my sister, she spoke about the long-lasting fragrance of this body spray. The smell was pleasing and didn't stand out strongly to make nearby people uncomfortable. Wished that the fragrances of the other two options were also better.

With the passing of age, we come across many skin problems. A healthy lifestyle is an answer to it but one cannot deny the benefits of a good skincare product as well. I found that benefit in Olay. The brand itself speaks volumes when it comes to the caring of skin. So it was so easy for me to go for Olay Moisturizing Skin Cream this winter. The product comes in a white-coloured container with a black cap. The consistency of the cream is good and smooth. It speaks of making the skin looking plump, moisturized and younger. With the ingredients very similar to the natural fluids in our skin, it claims to reduce the skin problems. With my personality, I prefer things hassle-free and this product proved to be one such thing. It can be used both as a day cream or the night one. Applying is very comfortable due to its non-greasy texture and it is suitable for all the skin types. During seasons when my face feels drier, I use it as a base before applying the makeup. It is non-sticky and can get absorbed quickly in the skin. Due to its ability to stay longer, it holds the makeup well and acts as a protective layer over the face. Mildly fragrant Olay Moisturizing Skin Cream lives up to the main concept of Olay- providing anti-ageing benefits. After a month of its usage, I could find that there was a considerable reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. My colleagues also spoke about my face looking healthy. I could feel a glow in the skin. Olay comes under the category of High-End brand and so one should expect the price of the product is a tad too high. I would buy an Olay product anytime for my skin care regime. No doubt about it.
Suitable for all skin types
This is one of the better products by NYX. Apart from the quality, its price is also affordable. NYX Vinyl Liquid Liner comes in a slender black coloured container with a flexible brush. The brush applicator has fine bristles with which one can put the liner easily over the eyelids as well as make it winged at the corners. The pigmentation is good and it doesn't give a lumpy feeling after application. I don't feel the heaviness on the eyelids which comes while using ordinary eyeliners. I purchased the Matte NYX Vinyl Liquid Liner as it suits my makeup style for work. It is really handy when you are running late for work. The product is easy to use and I just need a swipe and its done. It dries quickly in comparison to other liquid liners I have used before. I recommend NYX Vinyl Liquid Liner for good results.

When we had shifted to this new place, it was certainly very difficult for my younger one. With the change in weather, her skin developed problems. One of them was the itching caused by prickly heat. She couldn't get adjusted to the temperature in this region and developed prickles. Her back used to be red because of the itching prickles and no amount of home-remedies or showers were able to bring an end to it. She used to come crying in the night to help her get rid of the itch as she was not able to sleep due to the itching. In the day time also, with the increase in temperature, her problems grew. To give her relief from this, I brought Boroplus Prickly Heat Ice Cool Powder. The product was an instant relief believe me. From the very first time I used it on her body, she could sleep soundly in the night. She said that the product gave a cooling sensation and her itches felt quiet immediately. As a mother, I was also relaxed as the Boroplus Prickly Heat Ice Cool Powder is Ayurvedic in nature and doesn't have any side effects whatsoever. As I used it personally, I found that the powder also acts as sweat-resistant. It consists of Active Herbo-minerals that absorb sweat and fight with body odour. The talc has ayurvedic ingredients like Tulsi and Neem which help in removing acne and infection. My whole family now relies on this powder during summers. Wrapped in a plastic body with a very travel-friendly design, we use the Boroplus Prickly Heat Ice Cool Powder daily to keep the itches and prickles at bay. Not only it keeps us protected from the intense heat but also makes us feel fresh throughout the day. It is a great choice as talcum powder for summers.

My younger one has sensitive skin since birth. I have to be very careful while choosing skincare products for her. There are very few brands which I rely upon when it comes to my kid and gladly Dove is one of them. I purchased Dove Go Fresh Body Wash during this summer season. This weather causes skin troubles for my kid. She tends to take showers now and then but then the skin starts becoming dry. That is when Dove Go Fresh Body Wash came handy. This light green body wash has Nutrium moisture technology which provides natural nutrients to the skin, thereby preventing it from becoming dry. The white creamy liquid body wash encased in a white bottle having a flip cap imparts freshness to the skin with every wash. The bottle is easy to use and is light-weight enough to carry during our travels. Dove has always been known for its mild ingredients which are very gentle with all types of skin. I had purchased Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena because I loved its mild fragrance which felt so refreshing. It lathers up quickly with just a small quantity and cleanses the body thoroughly along with nourishing it. After the wash one can feel the cooling effect of this product. It is also hydrating. The only thing which gives a slight setback is that it really takes time to wash off. Other smaller problems arising in summer-like itching and prickly heat also got resolved to an extent with the use of this product. My kid loves this body wash as it has helped her skin to become soft and smooth. The dryness of her skin had decreased considerably in a month and hence we have decided to continue to use this product.

Being a working mom and having growing kids who constantly demand your attention is difficult. I like to stay at home whenever I get free time from such a busy schedule of mine. Even going to the salon becomes a tedious task for me. Finding an alternative that could help me reduce visits like this, brought me across the Aroma Magic Gold Facial Kit. It has been more than three months that I have been using this product and I am extremely satisfied with it. The facial kit from the Aroma Magic's Salon range comes in a seven-step kit which makes you understand the whole process in such an easy way. There are different sachets for cleansing, bleaching, exfoliating and nourishing. Along with this, there is AHA gel present in the kit which helps in removing dead skin cells from the face gently.

With its usage, I can not only take care of my skin but also give much-required rest to my body in the comfort of my home. In this period, I have seen changes in my facial skin and they are all positive. My skin stays moisturised for long and has started looking healthy with a golden glow. Especially after the day of using the facial kit, my skin feels so healthy and soft. The wrinkles and dry tightness on my face have come down. Other problems like blemishes or hints of acne have reduced considerably. So far, I am very happy with this product and can recommend to all the busy mothers out there.

I indulged in purchasing this product last winter when my skin became very dry and dull. I saw the Solution Firming Face Mask of The Face Shop in one of the online sites and purchased it as I read its good effects. Though it was costly, I thought of giving it a try since I was looking for any skincare product which helped in rejuvenating my skin. The Solution Firming Face Mask is a semi-transparent mask sheet having serum which contains ceramides. The ceramides nurture the dull dry skin of the face. Formulated with collagen this face mask leaves the skin moisturised and provides a radiant glow. The mask can be used only once and needs to be applied on the face for at least 20minutes. This Solution Firming Face Mask works well for mature skin as its main task is to lift and firm the facial skin along with giving it the much-required nourishment. You need to tone your face before using this mask. As I opened the packet, I could see the mask with a peeling paper. It was dripping with the serum. One can use the extra serum in the packet to rub across your neck areas where the mask can't cover. The usage of mask made my dryness go away immediately and I could feel my skin plump and soft. Let me confess that the effect of this mask stayed on my face for many days. It helped to prevent my face from the extreme dryness occurring during the winter season. The only thing which pinches me about this product is that the pricing is too high. For a mask which can be just used once, the price makes you raise your eyebrows.

Lotus Herbals Apriscrub Fresh Apricot Scrub is a product which I am very familiar with. I have used this product umpteenth number of times. The brand Lotus is a well-known household name as it is famous for being a herbal product with no side effects. Adding to that, the price of the products under this brand are always reasonable. It has tiny granules in it which help in removing blackheads and dead skin cells from the face. The apricot kernel, one of the main ingredients in this scrub is rich in Vitamin C and also acts as an exfoliator. The Vitamin D and E enriched walnut shells help in lightening the complexion and reducing the wrinkle lines. The Apriscrub is very effective in removing the dirt and grime from the face without being harsh on the skin. I have a combination which tends to get oily or dry with the change of seasons. It controls the oil during humid days and moisturises my skin during the dry spells.

My elder kid loves to keep long hair. Lately, I found that her hair was becoming dull and tangled more often. She is a sportsperson and is exposed to sun and dirt most of the time. Due to her busy schedule, she forgets to take care of her hair. It was that time when I came across this ayurvedic oil. The feature which impressed me most was that it not only took care of the condition of hair but also provided coolness to the scalp thereby soothing the mind. It has been a month that I have started using this oil for my daughter and she is very satisfied with it as of now. For her, the best thing is that the oil is very light and non-sticky. She can put it on and go to school without feeling any heaviness which is felt in other normal hair oils.

It has been two weeks since I purchased Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant. I am more inclined to purchase skincare products which claim to be organic and have fewer chemicals/preservatives. This facial cleanser is said to be free of parabens, chemicals, and colouring agents. The Fluidactiv Sebocorrector Complex present in this cleansing gel helps in preventing skin imperfections and controls sebum quality. There is zinc sulfate and copper sulfate which goes deep into your skin and cleans the epidermis reduces marks as well as sebum secretion. One can use the Moussant after coming from the office or also for removing makeup. Suitable for all skin types, this facial cleanser keeps your skin soft after its application. The gel is not too foamy and feels gentle on the skin. Since it has a pH-balanced formula, it does not give that dry effect. After two weeks of usage, I can say that so far I am happy with the results.

I purchased the Philips Selfie Hair Straightener for my teenage daughter. Now in her teens, she likes to work on her hairstyles and keep her look smart. I felt that the Philips Selfie Hair Straightener was a good choice as it is easy to handle and does not damage the quality of hair. Philips, the name of the brand is enough to be trusted when it comes to such appliances but along with that, there were certain other features which caught my interest. The straightener has an advanced ceramic coating which prevents damage to the hair as they are less exposed to the heat. The SilkPro technology of this straightener causes minimal friction against the hair. The temperature of this device has 2 options and the plates are said to heat up in 60 seconds which is speeds up the process of hairstyling real quick. So far I am satisfied with this device.

Lotus brand brought out this Ecostay series with great products and one of them is the Lotus Makeup Ecostay Insta Smooth Perfecting Primer. Packed in a light pink cardboard box, this product is colourless gel coming in a squeezy tube which is travel-friendly. The Lotus Makeup Ecostay Insta Smooth Perfecting Primer claims to be for all skin types but it works better on Combination and oily skin. The reason might be the instant matte effect seen after applying the primer. It has an oil-free formula that removes fine lines and shrinks the pores. The makeup applied over this Primer remains for seven to eight hours which is a good period. Even if your skin has slight blemishes or few acnes, this primer smoothes out the look. The gel base causes less friction on the face and spreads out evenly. The foundation applied over this primer is even-toned and sets perfectly all over the face.

The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion is three in one product which gives the benefits of being a foundation, sunscreen and skincare. It claims to have SPF 50+ and is highly recommended for oily skin. It is said to control sebum and moisture of the skin. The foundation does last long hours but it didn't impress me much. With such an expensive price tag I felt nothing out of ordinary about it. When I applied it on my face I could see the Matte effect, but still, it was not a look that can not be achieved with any other foundation or primer. Similar to other brand foundation, it helps in covering up the imperfections of the skin, the wrinkles and fine lines. It even outs the skin tone and giving it a smooth look. Another thing which looked like a limitation was the availability of the product only in two skin shades.
Light matte finish
Limited shades available
I am a person who gives more weight to the skincare products in comparison to the makeup products. That is why even if the skincare product is expensive I will still buy it if it promises to give the desired result. So when I saw the Green Tea Sleeping Pack from Innisfree, I had to purchase it. Koreans are famous for their skincare regime and their products are world-class. Innisfree is a very well-known and widely accepted brand famous for its skincare products. Adding to that, this product spoke about the natural goodness of freshly squeezed green tea and green tea complex from Jeju Island. It has minerals and amino acids which deeply moisturize the skin and gives brighter complexion. It is said to be made using the Dual-Moisture Rising Technology that nourishes the skin as one sleeps. The green tea seed oil retains the natural skin moisture and prevents dryness. It comes in a light green bottle with a dark green coloured cap and the sleeping pack is white. The bottle is quite sturdy and travel-friendly. At the end of the day, after cleansing, the face one needs to apply it on the face. After a light massage on the face, it has to be left throughout the night. In the morning we can wash it off. The skin feels soft and supple. It prevents skin dryness during the winter season. My skin is combination with slight problems of acne. Since this sleeping pack is free of mineral oils, parabens, artificial colours and imidazolidinyl urea, I use it without any qualms. The price of the Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack can be considered on the higher end by many. But if one compares the amount used for applying on the face, this product does last for a longer period.

I bought this product because of its brand. Added to that the shades were extremely attractive. However, I was a little disappointed when I used them. Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine comes in four shades named after the Italian cities - Milan, Rome, Florence, and Naples. I purchased Florence as I prefer those shades. As I opened the package, I was taken aback by the applicator. The applicator is rubbery in the shape of spade which is quite surprising. It is so difficult to apply the eyeshine with the help of that applicator. The outcome is so patchy. I decided to use a brush but then these eyeshines are too creamy to be applied through the brush. It can be best applied using fingers. Although one needs to be careful with the amount of pressure used through the finger when dabbing on the product pallette. A little more pressure than required will leave lots of creamy glittering eyeshine on the tip of your finger.
Shinier than an eyeshadow
After my second child, my hands were full. I completely lost track of time juggling between two kids and ended up neglecting myself. This took a toll on my health. Not only did my health suffer but I developed skin problems on my face as well. It was one of my senior colleague in the institute who saw my struggles and advised me to try this product from The Body Shop. I started using the Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub by The Body Shop as my skin was becoming oily and suffered from acne. The other reason to use it was that with a small baby around me who was always close to my skin, I wanted something organic and harmless. The Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub is said to be infused with tea tree oil sourced from the foothills of Mount Kenya. Moreover, the product claims using organic ingredients, without parabens, and with exfoliating beads that are free of microplastics and completely biodegradable. I was more comfortable to use it when I came to know about this. It has been a while since I started using this product and truth be told, I have never felt so clean. The beads in this scrub break to give a gentle foam on your face removing that excess oil from your skin. It is not as harsh as compared to many other scrubs found in the market. One can feel the oil and grime getting removed as you wash your face after applying it. I can see the effects of this product on my skin. My blemishes have lightened and acnes have become minimal. With its delicate aroma, it makes me feel fresh and rejuvenated. The only catch with this product is the price. Though the product is so effective yet the price pinches me whenever I have to buy it.
Does not dry out your skin
The weather in my area is humid and hot during the summers. It becomes difficult for me to pass my day as I sweat too much. Trust me, Deodorants are not much of help if you are sweating profusely under the heat when you are out. It was my mother who suggested me to try Navratna I-Cool Talc. Heeding to her advice, I purchased the talc. As a herbal product of Emami, I was sure of having no side effects. It has ingredients like mint and camphor along with other herbs which help in providing a cooling sensation on your body. Specially made for fighting the body problems in the summer season, this product was a huge relief to me. Not only did it help me feel refresh all day long, it also provides an active fragrance keeping the body odour at bay. It is an easy and affordable solution for Indian summers.

Finally, I have found a lipstick which can give a matte finish without giving the dry feeling on your lips. I love matte lipsticks but the dry feeling which it evokes after application doesn't allow me to wear them for a longer period. However, the NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick brought relief to this concern of mine. I was not very happy with its pricing but still went ahead to know how the product is. There is a good range of shades under this cosmetic. They are vibrant especially the Blood Red and Charmed, which I loved immensely. The lipstick has good pigmentation thereby giving the gorgeous colour to my lips in one stroke. It gives you a feel of buttery texture after applying. That is something which I had not found in any Matte Lipsticks used by me before and I love this feature. However, it does not stay for very long periods.
Creamy and soft
The NYX professional makeup retractable lip liner is the answer to the beautifully defined lips that one always wishes for. It comes in numerous shades which makes it so confusing to choose. This retractable lip liner is lightweight and safe to carry around in your bag. The retractable lip-liner provides a rich colour to your lips as you apply it. It has a smooth texture and does not feel dry on your lips. The liner glides smoothly over your lips and has a longer stay. It is very convenient as you don't have to worry about sharpening it now and then. The tip is always ready to use. I have used the lip liner on my eyes as well, for giving me a trendy look. It worked well there too. Though it is a high-end product with the price being more than 4K it is still worth as it has zero wastage.

As a mother of a teenage daughter, who is getting to know her way into the world of make-up slowly, I feel I should be extra cautious while purchasing cosmetics for her. So this time when she asked me to get a highlighter/illuminating powder for her, I searched the market thoroughly before coming to a decision. I went ahead and bought NYX Professional Makeup Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder for her. This product caught my eye because of the beautiful range of shades available in it. I purchased the lavender one as it had that pearl finish look. The Illuminating Powder is highly pigmented. It takes a very small quantity to get the desired effect. The reflective glow is alluring at any angle the light falls on. It blends seamlessly with the skin. Though it is costly the cosmetic can be used for way longer time compared to the other products cheaper than it.
Adds dimension to face
I brought this product on a whim. I haven't tried lip-plumpers before and was curious to see their effect. This, 'NYX Professional Makeup Pump It Up Lip Plumper', comes at a high price as the product claims to have specially infused peptide called Maxi-Lip. This peptide claims to improve collagen synthesis, resulting in smoother, fuller and firmer lips. The lip plumper comes in glossy shades. There are 9 pretty eye-catching shades available. I applied the lip plumper on my lips and it gave me a tingling sensation in the beginning. The peptides in this product were working. However, I was disappointed when I saw myself in the mirror after some time. I couldn't make out any particular difference on my lips. I could just see the glossy effect. And it wasn't that I didn't use it again. Since the price was so high I couldn't just throw this product away but it was more like a lip gloss with a tingling sensation.

The Maybelline Colossal Liner has been one of my best purchases to date when it comes to Make-up products. I like products from Maybelline not only because of their quality but also because of the thought this company puts behind for applying the product. This Colossal Eyeliner is no exception. It comes with a Flexi-Tip which makes the process of applying the eyeliner so easy. This intense black eyeliner gives a unique definition to the eyes. With the help of Flexi-Tip, I can easily give a dramatic look to my eyes whenever required. Moreover, the tip is neither too soft nor too hard. It doesn't hurt the skin while applying. With a change in the angle of the tip, I can make the liner go thick and thin as per my need. Another thing which I loved about the product is that it is non-smudgy once dried. Had it been a little more resistant to water, the product would have been an absolute catch.

With my cousin's marriage coming up last month, I was desperately searching for various cosmetics and eyeshadow was one of them. I purchased 'Revlon Colorstay Creme eyeshadow' because, among the 18 shades available, I easily found the ones matching my dresses. I have used Revlon products previously and am satisfied with their product quality. So, I was sure that the product will not let me down. The eyeshadow is easy to apply due to its creamy texture. Believe me, in the hustle-bustle of the ceremonies there were many times when I just applied it with my fingers and it still gave a nice effect. More so, one can experiment by blending two shades to give a unique look. I even used the pink-hued eyeshadow as a blush and was so happy with the result. The Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow has a longer stay period and doesn't wash out even during sweating. Loved it.
This Monsoon season, I started having skin problems as it had become too humid near the coastal region, where I reside. My face had blemishes and slight acne problems. I used to wash my face so many times during the day but it wasn't giving any results. I have combination skin but the humidity in the air had caused excess oil secretion resulting in many skin problems. To get a breakthrough to these problems, I searched for many skincare products online. It was then when I purchased Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Foam. It spoke about removing dirt and excess oil from the skin pores thereby unclogging them. Within a week of its usage, I found that the skin felt more smooth. I could feel the difference in my skin. The blemishes were fading away and the acne problems were also reducing. I am using this cleansing foam regularly now to keep my skin problems at bay.
Removes dirt and impurities
Suitable for all skin types
I must say that I was quite thrifty when I purchased MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation. The price range puts it on a higher edge and might make people feel the pinch. This product comes in 8 shades which is amazing as it gives more options for a perfect match to one's skin. The bottle is packed in a black coloured box. It claims to have SPF15 which is an advantage as it helps in providing slight protection during the day time. With a pump which can be locked and opened as per the convenience, it is safe to carry it during travels. The foundation itself has medium buildable coverage and gives a subtle satiny shine. Due to its running consistency, it is easily applicable and blends perfectly covering the imperfections of the skin. The beauty of this product is that it doesn't feel heavy on your face nor gives a dry feeling.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder is the ideal solution for the ones who are looking for a perfect solution to make their eyebrows look up to the mark. This awesome product comes with wax, wax tools, brow powders, and shaping tools. I had such a great experience while using this product. My eyebrows are on the thinner side and I have to take care to give them a natural look while applying my makeup. Usually, among the products I had used so far, the result was either too shiny or too flaky. Also, the stay period wasn't very long. However, this Eyebrow Cake Powder from NYX was the answer to it. The combination of wax and eyebrow powder once applied makes the eyebrows look more fuller. The tools provided along with the kit help in giving the eyebrows a natural look. This product has helped in transforming my look and I am extremely happy about it.

I am very picky when it comes to choosing a face mask to use regularly. Because of that, I have tried different face masks from time to time. That is how I ended up having L'Oreal Pure Clay Exfoliating and Refining Face Mask. I was intrigued with the components of this Face Mask as I have never tried a Clay mask before. The product speaks of ingredients like Red Algae and three types of pure clays in it. It claims to exfoliate your skin leaving it rejuvenated. The product comes in a box and the transparent container has screw-lid in green colour. The clay mask is in the shade of red and consistency of this paste is thick. I have combination skin with my T-Zone being oily. As I applied it over the face I could feel the exfoliation happening. The paste has a smooth thick texture and is not abrasive on the skin. However, I was amused by the red face looking back from the mirror. I am not used to coloured face masks so much and a face mask in the shade of red was new to me (gives you a feel of Red Hulk or Deadpool if you are into comic characters :D) As per the instructions, written on the product, I left it on the face for 10 to 15 minutes. I could feel the effect of the face mask as I washed it off. It certainly gives a glow to the face. My face felt clean and fresh. It looked two tones lighter and oil-free. The added advantage is that the effect isn't momentary. It stays for a couple of days. The regular use of L'Oreal Pure Clay Exfoliating Face Mask has shown considerable improvement in my skin condition. Though it may seem pricey, it is worth it.
My hair started to turn grey after my second child was born. Looking at these grey hairs made me feel depressed as I used to take good care of my hair. My friend suggested me to visit a salon but it was too time-consuming for me. With a young child and my working hours, I was just unable to take out time for getting my hair coloured. Then I chose to try Garnier Color Naturals Creme Hair Color. Many of my colleagues had used it, and they told me about its satisfying results. The creme hair colour has olive, avocado and almond oil which is said to help in strengthening, nourishing and rejuvenating your hair. I was more convinced when I found that it is ammonia-free as well. Garnier Color Naturals comes in a pack which consists of a colourant tube, a developer milk bottle and a conditioner sachet along with a pair of disposable gloves. I immensely liked the packaging as everything was sorted and hassle-free. I could use it immediately without any confusion. I applied it on my hair after mixing it as per the instructions. After the wash, my hair felt soft to touch. The hair colour had turned out well. It was even and had covered the grey parts properly. I was happy and satisfied. But my happiness was short-lived. Within two days, I could feel that my hair felt drier compared to how they used to be. There was no hair fall but the quality of my hair was affected. Within five weeks, I could see bits of grey hair peeping out again on my scalp. I wasn't satisfied with such a short duration of colour stay. It meant colouring the hair almost every month and with the dryness coming along with it, the continuation of this product seemed impossible for me. Garnier Hair Color Creme didn't work for me.

I bought NYX Butter Gloss when I was looking for lipgloss for my teenage girl. As she is growing she goes to attend parties or get together with her friends often. I don't want her to use heavy cosmetics at this young age. Hence, I was looking for alternatives which are not harsh or cause side-effects. We zeroed in on NYX Butter Gloss as the product caught our eye with so many pretty shades. It comes in lovely packaging too. There are many fresh, bright shades suitable for young girls which is a delight to the eyes. The fragrance of this product is also a plus point. Although we were excited when we bought this product we were not so happy with its quality. NYX Butter Gloss is smooth, creamy liquid gloss which comes with an applicator. When you put it on the lips it gives you a shiny gloss effect with a smooth finish. But the problem is that it doesn't stay for very long. The moment you have eaten something, either the gloss smudges(if it is a darker shade) or gets wiped out. My girl mostly has outings with friends. They tend to eat whenever they all meet. She complained about the gloss either getting smudged or wearing out after having few bites. This causes a sense of discomfort and makes her very conscious. The product can do well if it had a longer stay time. She has started using the lighter shades of this product now. I prefer putting it over my lipstick. This gives my lips shine when I am attending parties or events. I would recommend buying lighter shades of NYX Butter Gloss. It is best suited for the winter season as it keeps the lips from getting dry and does add colour to them.
