Oh My God..this is a God gifted product especially for people like me who are tired managing their frizzy hair. This hair serum spray magically controls frizz and smoothens hair instantly. I’ve been using this for more than a week and I am in love with this product. The best part is that it never dries up your hair. The best haircare product available in the market.
I usually write reviews about products which I absolutely love and here I go..again..with the review of my favorite shampoo..that’s has been a part of my hair care routine for months now. As the name says, it’s gives you smooth hair by controlling frizziness. It’s absolutely moisturizers your hair and lock the moisture thought the day. Highly recommended to use along with the conditioner for better results. It’s affordable as wel.
Infused with Keratin and Argan oil
Makes hair silky and smooth
The best thing about the Keratin Smooth infusing conditioner is that it can be used as it is. It doesn’t need a beforehand shampoo wash. This conditioner fantastically does it’s job by making your hair smooth. I am a person who loves to condition my hair without shampoo and I absolutely love this product for that. It makes my hair frizz free and adds extra volume and smoothness effectively. It’s beat to pair up with the smooth infusing shampoo.
Suitable for all hair types
Can be used on chemically-treated hair
So talking about the well know brand Parachute and it’s really great product, Advanced Ayurvedic Hair Oil, I am sure that’s everyone will have great opinions about this product. My mother has been using this product for years and she swears by this one. She really enjoys this oil and have successfully added this to her dials haircare routine. From her experience, I’ve tried this oil and I enjoy it. 😊
MAC Strobe Cream is a versatile product that can be used as a moisturizer or a primer for a solid base before applying foundation. It illuminates and brightens the skin and gives instant glow and makes you ready to apply makeup. I have oily skin but still it worked like a magic on my skin. That shine gives glow in to the face even without applying foundation.
Makes your skin glow
Hydrates your skin
Facial razors are a blessing especially while I am writing this review, the lockdown period where no beauty salons are open. Let’s shave razor has been a helper for me during my pregnancy as well as I never went out for any facial treatments. This razor helps removing even the tiny hair without any pain and it is really easily to work on your skin. The razor doesn’t make your skin dry and also avoids ingrown hairs.
Can be used anywhere on the face
Comfortable grip holder
I’ve tried dandruff shampoo from almost every single brand available in Indian market and VLCC was one of them. This shampoo is thick in consistency which can lead to frizzines especially for my hair which is super frizzy. The dandruff control part is also doubtful as I didnt seen any change after using for a month. I didn’t went for a second bottle cause I have found dandruff shampoo that works works better than this.
Full ingredients list is absent
To be honest, this was the cream I used as moisturizer way before when I had no idea visit moisturizers and how it works. This comes in handy and was available in every single supermarket so it became my favorite for no reason. This cream makes your skin super oily and I never even checked that until I’ve used this cream for so long. Discontinued using and won’t recommend for people with oily skin.
Can be greasy for oily skin
The Body Shop is one of my favorite brand and I’ve been a loyal customer for years now. Tea tree oil and the tea tree oil range is my favorite range from the brand. Tea tree oil is really useful especially as spot treatment for pimples and acne. Regular use can even control the appearance of acne. Tea tree oil smells incredibly good and requires only small quantity for usage.
Concentrated and purifying
Reduces acne and blemishes
Takes time to show results
Pathanjali Saundarya Face wash is such a good affordable face wash available in the Indian market. This face wash can be used on a daily basis if you don’t have any skin concerns. This face wash is travel friendly as it can easily fit on your purse or bag. The only problem is of the availability of this product.
Washes off easily
I’ve received this lip balm as a gift and it has become one of my favorites since then. The main thing that got attracted about this lip balm is about the chemical free ingredients and the SPF factor, This is a nourishing lip balm that lasts for so long especially for dry lips.
Has SPF 15
Vivel Body Wash is in my personal hygiene care for a really long time especially post pregnancy. This body was has rich formula that lathers up really well when used along with a loofah. It’s creamy and smooth and moisturizes the skin for long after the shower. Only a really small amount is required for one wash and the family pack will last for days.
Gives 100+ washes in 500ml
Available in tester pack, personal use pack, family pack, and refill pack.
rich creamy lather
Arata Maple Lemon Blueberry Shampoo is my personal haircare after my post pregnancy and trust me this product has changed my hair since then. My hair was super frizzy and uncontrollable. This shampoo has helped me defrizz my hair and makes it smoother and softer. It’s best to use the shampoo along with the conditioner to get better results . Last but not least, the fragrance is excellent and makes your hair smell soooo goood.
Mild and pleasant fragrance
100% natural ingredients
Not tested on animals
If you look are looking for a lip balm with a tint of colour on your lips, this lip balm is the best option available. This lip balm gives you that perfect moisturizing your lips needs plus the colour tiny of you are not a fan of wearing lipstick. As stated, it needs multiple swipes to get the colour on the lips but it’s good to reapply every 2-3 hours to keep that moisture lock in. It is very much affordable as well.
Availability in glossy shades
Multiple swipes needed for pigmented look
Color disappears after a few hours
Blossom Kochar Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel is has become a part of my skincare routine for more than 6 months. I bought this product after checking n number of reviews. I have oily skin and tend to strip off the product a lot, I wanted something light weight in gel texture. This one was the top on the list with price being really affordable. The product is fragrance free and gel form so it’s perfect for my oily skin.
Requires frequent re-application
Victoria’s Secret is my favorite brand when it comes to body mists. I used to find really great offers in the store while I was living in Dubai. I still remember grabbing a basket full of body lists under huge offers. The aqua kiss fragrance was one among them which had great aqua smell that came with cute packaging. It was travel friendly and was easy to carry around in my hand bag.
As I said in the headline of this review, the name of the fragrance says everything about the product. I initially wanted to buy the perfume but ended up buying the body mist for mainly 2 reasons. First being the easiness of carrying it around my purse of bag and secondly checking upon the price range. It’s a highly recommended body mist by the way.
Victoria’s Secret is kind of an expensive brand when you buy it in India but it’s on the affordable side while I was living in Dubai and of course you should not convert it into indian rupees. The Bombshell was on my bucket list for really long time but I bought the body mist at first thinking about the travel carrying part and the money. Then I ended up buying this and since then it had become my favorite perfume forever
I strongly believe every indian household has bought the VICCO Turmeric cream once in their lifetime. If not, then you have to try this product atleast once. This product was the life savior during my childhood when we used to get random pimples, scars, burns etc. I don’t remember whether it used to work but I when I think about that now, this product was really good as we used to buy it again and again. The strong smell is the only disadvantage.
Prevents acne and pimples
I think I’ve tried almost every single Vaseline product and I strongly recommend this brand to every skincare lover. Vaseline Lip Therapy range is such a boon to protect your lips from getting drier and giving that perfect moisture that lasts for long. The Creme Brulee sounds weird but trusts me it’s better when you wear and you don’t have to reapply every now and then
Arata Cocoa Butter Lemon Lip Balm has become one of my favorite products in terms of lip care and precisely skincare. It smells so divine and the texture is also so good. The only con about this product is the tin Packaging and we have to take the product with the fingers every single time.
Arata Green Apple Raspberry Maple Hair Conditioner is a part of haircare routine for so long and trust me this is one of the best conditioner that’s available in the market now. It smells so good and works incredibly when paired with Arata Maple, Lemon and European Blueberry Extracrs Shampoo. This products helped defrizz my hair and it can be used without applying any shampoo prior as well.
I am such a great fan of all the Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes so this one in particular is the favorite among all. This palette has nude shades ranging from pale to bright even with matte effect and glitters. This palette is a wise investment when it comes to the high end eyeshadow and Huda Beauty has never failed in playing with colours. This palette is good for beginners as well as for Makeup artists.
I’ve used this product way back and never purchased again. Felt like writing a review so this will be helpful for others if you are planning to buy this cream. This is just a normal cream that doesn’t do any wonders. Can be used as a normal moisturizer but don’t expect any wonderful mind blowing results.
I’ve tried using this serum for a couple of weeks and I should say that this serum makes your skin soft and glow from within. But I am extremely disappointed and had to discontinue using this serum as it had caused break outs on my skin. I really feel like it’s not suitable for acne prone akin or oily akin texture. I need to check with someone who has the same skin type of mine to have a better knowledge. Currently am using this on my elbows and trust me it’s equally good.
If you are looking for a budget friendly face wash that works like a pro on your skin then I will suggest you to choose himalaya herbals fresh start oil clear lemon face wash. This product gives the result you are seeking for and the price is really affordable. It is travel friendly as well.
Travel friendly packaging
I’ve been using the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara for a really long period of time and trust me it’s one of the best mascara available in the market now. The mascara does a pretty good job that enhances the lashes and gives perfect volume. If you are not interested in using false lashes, then I recommend to use this mascara to give that luscious look to the lashes
9X more volume
I’ve used the Garnier BB Cream for a really long time while I was working and it was a compulsory element in my daily makeup routine. As I tend to avoid heavy makeup during office days, this BB cream was the highlight which actually serves the purpose of both foundation and concealer. It also contains SPF so I am not at all worried Incas i forget my sunscreen. It will be little patchy if you don’t blend the cream well into your skin and that the only let which you have to focus on.
SPF 24/PA +++
Only one shade available
Although I have used this product more than a year, I suggest everyone to use this only if you want full coverage or heavy makeup look. This product even though has a soufflé texture, it looks heavy when you apply so blending thoroughly is the primary part when you apply on the face. I found this Camry at time so not recommended for daily use.
Reduces blemishes and dark circles
Earlier, Ponds Cold Cream was the only relief during winter time as it was the best cold cream available in the market. Now as the market is filled up with all kinds of moisturizers, it’s hard to say whether this one is better than others. Still I recommend this cold cream for beginners as it’s an affordable one but try to avoid if you have oily skin.
Nourishing and moisturizing
Soft and supple skin
Great for winters
Not for oily skin
Nothing fancy about this product and nothing great to talk about, as it a normal face wash with fragrance. Do not expect is tang glow after using this product even for a really long time. I recommend this product if you are looking for an affordable face wash and it is travel friendly as well.
A little goes a long way
Does not impart blush and glow as claimed
One of the top picks by my mum when it comes to her personal care. She is the one who uses this soap more than me. No matter how many times I give her a new soap or try to make her switch, she will move back to Chandrika. Even I love the smell of this soap . An affordable soap for daily use.
For all skin types
To be honest, I’ve been using this product for a very long time and I replay loved it. But a couple of my friends suggested about the effects of walnut on the skin. Even though it’s says that’s it’s gently exfoliating, the walnut particles can cause tear in the slim. I discontinued using it now because of this. But otherwise I must say this is a good product.
As this is anti-hair fall shampoo, I will say my experience according to its claims. For me, it doesn’t prevents any hair fall. This shampoo is like my other shampoo so if you have hair fall concern, don’t bother buying this. But if you are looking for just a shampoo, then it’s ok. A little bit drying to the hair as per my experience so I stopped using it.
Can be drying for dry hair
I’ve been using the Maybelline Eyebrow product for more than a year and I just love it. It works for me really well and good for daily use. I order to buy the brown shade as it looks natural for my skin. It blends really well and lasts longer with makeup on. Highly recommended.
Easy to use
The seaweed oil control lotion was recommended to me by one of the BodyShop staff while I was looking for a moisturizer. This is just an average moisturizer which cane be used daily under the makeup. It is more on the expensive side so I don’t really recommend this. This will give a matte effect on the skin and it’s in gel form.
Medium-level UVA/UVB defense
Matte shine-free finish
I’ve used this body wash while I was staying at my friend’s place. Never bought this myself and never heard about this body wash before I’ve seen this at her place. The body was smells so good but the effects are temporary. Feels Nourishing while showering but yes, again the results will fade out once you are out of shower. Good for those who are looking for an affordable body wash
I am a person who would like to try out kajal from different brands. And Lotus Kajal was their in the list. This is an affordable kajal and easy to use. Nothing good to say about or bad to blame about. This is one a good kajal if you are looking something for a daily use.
Sharpener not provided
Not completely smudge-proof
Parachute is an oldie brand for me as I’ve seeing this brand for ages now. The Coconut oil is really famous and used for both personal care as well as cooking. I don’t prefer using this for my hair care but I use this coconut oil to remove makeup especially on stubborn makeup such as eyeliner, mascara and lipstick.
Solidifies in winter
Lid is easily breakable
Indulekha Bringha Hair oil is quite a famous hit oil here in Kerala because of its Ayurvedic properties. I really love the comb idea for the application which reduces mess and easy as well. The oil helped me prevent dry hair and dandruff. It also promoted for the hair growth as well. But my mother made oil at home suing coconut oil and some medicinal plants which and the same effect and less expensive as this product is on the expensive side.
Quick hair regrowth
Reduces hair loss
Eliminates dandruff and other scalp infections
I bought this product to get the benefit of coconut oil as well as the fragrance of jasmine. I agree that the jasmine fragrance is dominating and it is a pleasing smell. Other than that this is a normal oil and I prefer buying the regular parachute coconut oil than this one. Not recommended.
Not as effective as regular coconut oil
To be honest, I’ve tried so many Micellar water before buying the Bioderma one. And I must say I really regret trying this out so late. Been using this for a while now. I can assure you that this is the best makeup remover I’ve ever come across. Even though it’s on the expensive side, I highly recommend to try this out.
Removes makeup effectively and effortlessly
Effective on waterproof makeup
I bought this product thinking that it will someway cover my dark circles, not completely but a little before I apply makeup. But this cream was just a normal eye cream. I prefer to apply this at night as a regular eye cream. Anyways didn’t expect this to have any effect on your dark circle also. A bit greasy but moisturizing.
Easy to use
Very thick and oily
Heavy on oily eyelids
Ineffective on dark circles
Carolina Herrera..whenever they launch a new perfume, I will definitely check that out. And this particular one is my favorite till date, not just the unique packaging but also the fragrance. Even though it’s on the expensive side, this perfume is a good investment if you are a lover of perfumes.
A little goes a long way
Oh My God..the smell of this body butter..it’s divine. When it comes to body butter, I always buy from BodyShop and I’ve tried almost every single variant of them. Out fo them, Shea Butter is one of my favorite because of its smell of course. Love the way the body butter gets into my skin. Best after shower when the skin is wet.
Contains shea butter
Contains cocoa butter
Makes your skin soft
I’ve been using this product since a very long time. I really love this product and it works well under makeup. The only disadvantage I found in this product is that this one is a bit greasy for my skin as my skin is oily. But it was ok for my friend who has oily skin so well it’s depends upon your skin type. But I highly recommend this product.
Unisex sunscreen lotion
No itching and burning
Even though this lip liner is a bit drying in the lips, I recommend this a it is super affordable as well as a good quality one. Try to use a lip balm after using the lip liner to line or fill the lips as it avoids the dryness. This works well if your lipstick is bit quite creamy in texture. I would definitely buy this again and again.
Gentle on lips
Easy to apply
Ideal for daily wear
May tend to be drying
I bought the NYX Powder Foundation while I was in Dubai and still using since I moved to Trivandrum. So I can guarantee that the product works really wells in different climatic conditions as well. I use this product after applying moisturizer if I am a bit busy or else I use a full on foundation and use the powder to set the foundations as to avoid greasy texture.
Ideal for daily wear
Natural matte finish
Makes skin smooth
Philips Hair Dryer is one of the most affordable hair dryers available in the market now. I’ve been using this for years now and I am completely satisfied with this product. Even though it is just a normal dryer, it can be used on a daily basis. Easy to carry and travel friendly as well.
Mac Foundation is one of my favourite Foundation. This has been in my vanity for a really long time. I’ve received so many compliments from others about my skin texture and makeup after applying this foundation. It lasts really long and doesn’t fade until you actually remove it with a makeup remover. The packaging should be travel friendly.
Suitable for all-day wear
UVA/UVB SPF 30 protection
Imparts a natural glow
No foundation brush
Not travel-friendly packaging
Mac Compact along with Mac Foundation is my favorite combination when it comes to the base makeup. This was actually suggested to me by one of the makeup artists at the MAC store and it’s my favorite since then. The compact is really good for daily use. As mine is oily skin, this compact reduces valet effect on the face.
Even matte finish
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is one of the best concealers I’ve ever used. I still use this concealer to cover my dark circles as well as to highlight my face. As my skin is a bit oily, I need to apply a setting powder after using this concealer. I use this concealer before applying Foundation so my under eyes looks more natural.
Medium to full coverage
Easy to use
Setting with powder is needed
Such an affordable compact which can be used on a daily basis. I’ve been using this compact for years now and I really love it even though I use compacts from other brands. Really affordable so this is pocket friendly compact for college and school going people. Lightweight packaging makes it easy to carry on the purse.
Suitable for all skin types
This compact is a very normal compact which can be used on a daily basis if you don’t like to wear heavy makeup. This compact is really affordable and fits well inside the purse. Easy to apply and reapply. I believe this is good for all kinds of skin type.
Touchup is required
No full coverage
Lakme Eyeliner is my very first makeup product. I still remember using this liner during my school days. Even though it takes time to dry, this product is a really good one. The application is really easy and the brush is precise as well. Very affordable and easy to carry.
Does not smudge
Takes time to dry
Another favorite product of mine from the MAC family. This compact makes wonders on my skin giving a matte and glows finish. One time application is enough for setting the base makeup such as foundation or BB cream. This compact lasts really longer. I say it’s a really good investment.
Long staying power
I remember using this Compact when I’ve heard about only one makeup brand that is Lakme. Used to love this compact back then. Now I feel like it’s not a good product as makeup has been evolved since its launch. I really don’t recommend anyone buying this as it creates a cakey effect on the face.
Poor shade range
To be honest, I’ve tried almost every compact from Lakme. Lakme 9 to 5 compact is such an affordable compact which comes with a shiny packaging. The compact worked really well on my skin. I used this compact to set my foundation as well as used as base makeup right after moisturizing my skin. I highly recommend this if you are looking for an affordable foundation.
Soft matte finish
Lakme Rose Powder is a powder I’ve seen used by makeup artists who used to dress up kids for school functions. I’ve never considered this product as a compact. The Rose colour of this product creates a cast on the face after you apply and creates a cakey effect after sometime. Not recommended.
Subtle rose fragrance
Himalaya Face Packs are really affordable and good for the skin as well. This mud face pack is enriched with the goodness of Multani Mitti, which is a ingredient that helps to control oil in the skin and also helps to tighten the skin. . This face pack worked really well on my skin and I truly believe it is good for other oily skin people as well.
Makes skin soft
Another expensive perfume from a luxury brand. The perfume smell lasts really long and it’s not overpowering. I would like to buy this again but in a small size as I would like to switch to different perfume. The small size is travel friendly as well. Would recommend the smalls one if yo would like to try a new perfume.
Available in different sizes
Sweet, citric fragrance
I’ve used Dabur’s Rose water a long time back as it was easily available and affordable as well. Then I got to know that it is not natural as it claims. I’ve found better natural rose water and switched to that and felt better. Nothing to praise about this product. An average one.
Easy to use
Even though I love products from Jovees, I would not prefer to buy this toner or recommend to anyone. It smells so good and instantly gives a refreshing effect to the skin once you apply. Other than that it has no other effects and would not create any wonders. Just an affordable toner if you are looking for one to apply before moisturizer.
Removes dirt from skin
I’ve been using the Sebamed Baby Shampoo for my baby boy for the last 2 months. As we apply oil to his hair on a daily basis, we needed a shampoo that gently cleanses but will remove oil and other residue completely. I chose this brand as I got huge recommendations from friends and family. This product is worth the money and I will definitely buy this for future use.
100% soap-free formula
Gently cleanses hair
Doesn’t lather well
I’ve personally never purchased this product but I have the experience of using it from the parlour I went for my facial. The parlour lady used this cream as the massage cream. From my one time experience, I should say this cream is good. It has cleansing properties and makes your skin feels fresh.
Makes skin fresh
No side effects
I’ve received this product as a gift so I don’t know the price of this and have never checked also. This one is an average moisturizer. Heard that it’s budget friendly so I would suggest to buy it if you have dry skin. For oily skin, I would never recommend as it has a greasy texture.
Makes skin soft
Ideal for dry skin
Not suitable for oily skin
Another Holygrail product of mine that I use on a daily basis especially if I put my makeup on. Even though it’s on the expensive side, I would buy this because of its tea tree formula and the effects of that on my skin. It makes my skin matte and avoids my skin becoming oily. Highly recommended if you have oily skin.
Improves skin texture
Nivea Soft Light moisturizer is an average moisturizer that has nothing to praise about. It is good for dry skin rather than oily skin because of its greasy texture. Better to apply after shower to lock the moisturizing properties. I recommend this as it is budget friendly and easily available.
Softens and smoothens skin
Great for dry skin
Not for all skin types
I recommend Lacto Calamine because of its effects on acne and pimple. This has also been used to cure mosquito bites or other insect bites. The one which is particular for oily skin has no other specialty than the normal one. I agree with the popular opinion of this leaving a white cast on the skin. Budget friendly and easily available.
Controls acne and pimples
Can leave a whitish cast behind
