I picked up Essence Pure Nude Highlighter while shopping for cosmetics online as it was quite affordable and being familiar with the quality of products in this brand. It comes in a compact form with a transparent lid that reveals the shade of the highlighter. I like that it has subtle shimmers that give a nice glow to the skin. It looks quite natural on my skin tone and does not give an over-the-top highlighting effect. It's perfect for both day and nightwear as the glow is very natural and yet highlights the best features of the face. I only wish it came with an applicator brush and has a little more intensity so that it could be worn for party or any other special occasion. However, this is a great product at such an affordable range. I totally recommend this highlighter to everyone who loves glowy skin all day but does not want to spend a fortune on expensive highlighters.
I love shampoos that give a squeaky clean effect since my hair catches a lot of dirt and grime due to frequent travelling. I keep experimenting with shampoos and have tried a gazillion products on my hair as I get bored sticking to just one product. Meera Anti Dandruff Shampoo was a random pick while shopping groceries because I've tried their shikkakai powder and quite liked it. So, this shampoo is enriched with the goodness of almond and shikkakai which is a great hair cleanser as well as a nourishing ingredient. This cleanses my scalp really well. During summers when my hair gets oily and limp, I use this shampoo. It does work on dandruff but the results are a bit slow. It suits my hair really well as I have an oily scalp. But, if your hair is dry you may skip using this shampoo or use a conditioner after shampooing as it makes the hair a bit dry.
I have used Tresemme Moisture Rich Shampoo with Vitamin E a few months back and would like to share a few things about the product. Apart from the packaging, Tresemme shampoos are really worth trying since they give amazing results. However, it is not the case with all the shampoos in this range. The moisture-rich shampoo has a great fragrance and lathers really well. But, if you are conscious about sulphates in your shampoo then this is not the one for you. However, if you are only bothered about the cleansing part, then this is a great buy. It provides shine and a bit of volume to the hair. Added vitamin E nourishes the hair without drying it out. The shampoo also helps in locking it the moisture in the hair and thus making it look healthy. It did not make my scalp oily or whatsoever and I never got the problem of dandruff after using this. Hence, I recommend using this shampoo as it is a value for money.
Akrot of walnut is rich in vitamin E and other minerals that are essential for maintaining the skin healthy and glowing. A friend of mine follows a strict CTM routine with regular masking and has great skin. When I asked her about the products that she uses, she mentioned Indulekha Akrot Face Packas one of them. I was surprised to know that even natural brands like Indulekha can give instant results. This face pack comes in a tube form which is the only thing I did not like about the product. Otherwise, the ingredients used in making this face pack does not include harmful chemicals and is made from natural ingredients like walnuts only. You just need to keep this mask for a few minutes and scrub it off before rinsing it. This face pack gives a beautiful glow to the skin as it energizes it. This is recommended for people with all skin types as it is nourishing and non-drying in nature.
I got VLCC Natural Sciences Ultimo Blends Charcoal Face Pack considering the ingredients used in it. A few months back I had few acne on my face which I badly wanted to get rid off and so i bought this. Activated charcoal is great for acne and oily skin but most of the charcoal-based skincare products I've used have only disappointed me. This is one among them. I have combination skin which tends to get oily in the T-Zone during summers. I also get acne and pimples more often due to hormones and my binge eating habits. This face pack aggravated the pimples instead of curing it. So, I discarded it completely and moved on with another mask that helped me cure my pimples. However, it did brighten my skin a bit and did not dry out my skin. But, I would not recommend this face pack for acne-prone skin due to my bad experience.
I have used Multani mitti in the past with my own recipe using home ingredients. When I saw VLCC Ayurveda Multani Mitti Face Pack, I immediately picked it up because it was a ready-to-use pack that did no require mixing or adding anything else. It has a great fragrance that calms the senses while the face pack in on. It did suit my combination skin tone and calmed down the redness and bumps due to heat. It also helped in keeping acne and pimples away due to its purifying nature. It controls sebum production and keeps the face matte for long hours. I used it 3-4 times a week or as and when required. It is quite affordable and I would definitely repurchase this in future. I would surely recommend this Multani mitti face pack to every oily skinned and combination skinned beauty to keep the face matte and oil-free all day.
A friend of mine used to carry Alograce cream to work with her as she had dry skin. She told me that this cream helped her combat dryness and kept her skin healthy and glowing. The air-conditioned cabins in her office made her skin really dry and she wanted something that moisturizes the skin well. This cream worked wonders in her case. It restored the lost moisture in the skin and locked in moisture for long-lasting effects. It is an ultra-nourishing yet non-sticky cream that helps in fulfilling the moisturization needs of the skin. The only thing I did not like about the product was the unhygienic tub packaging. If it was in a tube packaging, I too might have bought one for my combination skin which requires extra moisturization during winters. Another good thing about this cream is that it comes with added vitamin E which makes the skin soft and naturally healthy.
Jeevan Ras Mukti Gold Hairwash Shampoo is an all-natural and herbal shampoo that claims to make the hair healthy and accelerate growth. The packaging is nothing sort of attractive because I couldn't even guess that its a shampoo on the first look. I am a sucker for natural ingredients and herbs and so when I saw pictures if few herbs on the bottle I immediately picked it up. This shampoo has a weird fragrance that is not really appealing. However, when I used it the first time after oiling my hair, I noticed that it did cleanse my scalp well. It added a bit of a shine to my hair but I had to use a conditioner after shampooing because my hair felt dry while rinsing it off. I might not use it again because of the smell and also not-so-great effects. I would suggest skipping this product as it is not worth trying.
I love Swiss Beauty Intense Gel Kajal Eyeliner because it is a great buy for such a competitive price. This gel liner has an intense pigmentation which glides smoothly on the waterline without budging. It has a gel-like consistency that makes it easier to use. This eyeliner comes in beautiful shades and I just can't wait to buy them all. The pigmentation is great and staying power is also decent enough. I use it on an everyday basis and it stays the whole day until come back from work. It does not smudge or clump at the time as the gel formula keeps it moist all the time. Even if I do not use it for the day, this kajal pencil stays good and dispenses the pigmentation like before without drying out. I would definitely recommend buying this kajal from Swiss beauty as it is completely worth the price you pay.
I have used a few Aroma Magic products before and liked the results. So, I thought of picking up this Aroma Magic Anti Ageing Combo Pack which was available online. This has a pack of two products in one. The contents of the pack are a gel and a face pack which is specially made by keeping in mind the requirements of ageing skin. The gel has a moisturizing and nourishing effect on the skin. It tightens the pores and makes it look younger. The face pack is enriched with essential oils and clays to make the skin radiant and clear. It helps in toning the skin and makes it younger looking in just a few uses. being made from natural ingredients and free from harmful chemicals, it is completely safe to use it on sensitive skin types too. I would definitely recommend this combo for preventing the signs of ageing and maintaining a youthful glow.
