Best for dry hair

This is one of the best conditioners specially for very dry hair. Wow has the best range of shampoo and conditioners and all of them are 100% natural without any harsh chemicals. The argan oil variant is an amazing contioner because it doesn't weights down the hair but keeps the hair nicely moisturised. It smells so good and the fragrance stays for a long time. I love the pump style packaging which makes it very travel friendly and easy to use. I use this along with the shampoo for best results and my hair feels so soft and shiny till the next wash.

My favourite

I bought this perfume spray a month back and i think i have found the perfect fragrance for myself. I always look for perfumes that have sweet and fruity notes to it and this is exactly like that. This costs only 200 rs for 120 ml which is a steal deal for me. I use it almost everyday and the best part is that is stays all day long. I would highly recommend this perfume spray because this smells like any other high end perfumes and it is really affordable. The packaging looks very classy and you can easily carry it with yourself.

Best for daily use

The lakme whitening rose powder is an affordable product and great for daily use. It comes in a big tub like packaging and has a very soft texture. It blends very quickly into the skin and gives a nice smooth finish too. It comes in two shades only one is translucent and the other one has a pink tone to it. I prefer using the translucent shade. Since it is white it might not suit every skin tone so a shade which has a yellow undertone would have been great for the indian skin tones. I love this powder and use this to bake my undereyes and set my foundation too.

I use it everyday

Maybelline Volum Express Hypercurl Mascara costs Rs.310 and I have it in washable very black. I wear it everyday to college. It makes my lashes look naturally curled and gives it an intense black colour. The consistency is not very liquidy and I believe it is kind of like a gel like consistency. It dries up very quickly which is the best part. However it kind of gets a little tough to apply mascara in the lower lashline with the spoolie provided because it is a little thick with dense bristles but I manage it anyway. It is not waterproof yet it stays on my eyelashes all day long until I wash it off with a cleanser.

Hate it

Alot of people suggested me to use Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water to use in face packs and stuff so I bought it. I used it for a week even though it tingled like crazy whenever I applied it on my face. I tried it in different ways- sprayed it directly, applied using cotton balls and also mixed it in several face packs like with multani mitti. The result was horrible. My skin started breaking out and there were rashes and tiny bumps all over my face. The mistake was that I didn’t read the ingredients before buying it cause everyone was like it’s so pure and the best. Then I realise it is nothing near to pure and is full of chemicals and parabens. It’s absolutely not at all safe to use and not pure in any way.

It's not at all suitable for daily use. It can only be used when you are going to a wedding or a party. It gives metallic finish but I like matte blushes more.

This product is a 3 in 1 product meant to correct ,conceal and highlight. The consistency of each is thick creamy and these are little difficult to blend except the shimmer highlighter which is liquidy. The shimmer highlighter does not shine too much it’s an average highlighter that fades too quickly. The is too light and matches my skin tone after blending and doesn’t give any contouring effect. The corrector did not really help in correcting dark circles and blemishes, it kind of fades after blending. My overall verdict is that these thick creamy correct and concealer except shimmer highlighter feel too heavy but these are waterproof and won’t come off using a cleanser, micellar water will do the job.

Makes hair greasy after few days

The loreal total repair 5 conditioner is a bit heavy for the hair. I have used it for a month and noticed a lot of product build up specailly on my scalp that made my hair very oily and lead to dandruff too. It makes the hair very soft on the first day of use but the second day my hair looks flat and very oily.

Affordable toner

Toner is a must and should be used everyday as a daily skincare routine. If you are looking for an affordable toner the biotique bio cucumber pore tightening toner is a great option to go for. This toner helps a lot to sooth the skin and reduce open pores. I use it after cleaning my face using a makeup remover and this helps me to get rid of all the extra dirt that doesnt get completely removed only using a makeuo remover. The bottle feels a little flimsy but you cant expect much from it because it is very affordable. The product helps tighten pores and refreshes the skin from within.

A bit strong fragrance

I personally didn't like the fragrance of this body spray by Fogg because it is a bit too strong for my preference. If you have a sensitive nose you mind find this a bit overpowering because it feels a bit too strong and can give a headache too. If you like a musky woody fragrance you can go for this one.

This spray dries up quickly and gives a dewy look to my makeup which I like but if you’re in search for a setting spray that gives a matte finish, this one is not for you.

Absolutely worth it

The fact that Huda beauty launched in India so late and not all products are yet available here makes me so sad. Now these liquid lipsticks are absolutely the best as compared to most of the high end lipsticks. My personal favourite is Trendsetter which is such a gorgeous eye catching colour. These liquid lipsticks are deeply pigmented and you need to apply just one layer to get the perfect colour thus it goes a long long way trust me. It glides like silk on the lips and mattifies instantly but is extremely lightweight so you won't even feel that you are wearing a matte lipstick. It is so soft and moisturising you don't need to apply any lip balm. The lasting power is unquestionably fantastic and it's transfer proof.

It is enriched with natural ingredients with especially helps with acne and pimples. It lathers well and cleanses the body thoroughly. Apart from making mt body smell heavenly, when I come out of the shower my bathroom smells amazing too. it costs Rs. 30 per bar soap but I got it at Rs.25 from my local super market. The funny part is that each pack has self defense tips printed on it.

I don’t like Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash for multiple reason. I don’t have pimple or acne prone skin so I cannot say anything about that. I kind of like it’s smell which goes away after a few seconds. It does not lather well and fails to clean dirty face and does not remove any makeup at all. The thing that they mention that it hydrates the skin is false it just leaves the skin very sticky as if it’s still there and hasn’t been removed properly.

0.8/5

not worth the money

I believe that this product is not at all worthy of the money. It costs Rs.1200 and other spoolies which costs around 100-200 rupees works just the same. It can be used for very few purposes like like combing eyebrows and eyelashes, after mascara to separate lashes and that's it. However it is a good quality spoolie made of synthetic fibres with a handy wooden wand but it is a complete and utter waste of money and unnecessary.

decent product

L’Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Day Cream costs Rs.1400 and comes in a glass tub making it non travel friendly. This cream has medium consistency and gets absorbed into the skin easily. It makes the skin look really healthy as it hydrates it, adds glow to it, makes it look tight and somewhat evens out the skin tone. I don't have wrinkles yet so I cannot say whether it will work on it or not. But it is a decent product.

Affordable and good product

Essence Get Big! Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara costs Rs.260 which is very affordable. I don't really like waterproof mascaras much because it causes eyelashes to fall but sometimes you really need it when you have to go to a beach or waterpark. The formula is nice, it helps to make lashes look longer and natural depending on how many layers you have applied. The spoolie is also very handy it helps in perfect application and also separates the lashes.

First highlighter that I bought

I can literally swear by this highlighter, the first time I learned about highlighter I started researching alot and that’s when I came across a review saying that Wet N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder is the best drugstore highlighter in the market. It is so affordable it costs only Rs. 499. It is extremely pigmented and buildable according to how you want, whether you want it to look natural or make your face shine strikingly. The texture is absolutely creamy and long lasting. A must buy for all makeup lovers. I have it in the shade blossom glow which is a pinkish highlighter with a silver base.

Non greasy moisturiser

Growing up I failed to realise the importance of moisturiser. I have oily t-zone and that is why I rarely used moisturiser thinking it will make it more oily. One day I saw a youtube video on which the youtuber said that it is a mistake that we think moisturisers are only for dry skin people. So on searching for a non greasy moisturiser I came across Himalaya Oil Free Radiance Gel Cream. I use it all the time, especially to prep my face for makeup. It has gel like consistency and is super lightweight. It quickly gets absorbed into the skin making it soft,smooth and moisturised. It is also super affordable and sometimes I keep it in the refrigerator half an hour before applying for a really soothing and cooling effect.

This eyeliner costs Rs.2100 and comes with a really nice felt tip for easy application and the handle is very comfy which has made applying eyeliner look very easy.

Innisfree is a brand that makes products using natural ingredients making it suitable for all skin types.

Depending on how you want you can either use it to create a natural look or build it to make it look more intense. You can also use the spoolie to comb brow hair in position.

two in one

I have used other lotus sunscreens and I've hated them because they burn on my face a lot. So when i bought this product I decided not to put it on my face cause my face is very sensitive. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Moisturising Sunscreen Lotion is a two in one product. It is a moisturising sunscreen. So, if you tend to go out in the sun a lot and also have dry skin, this product is for you. The consistency is quite thick not very and spreads easily on the body.It provides protection against the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. It needs to be reapplied after every 2 to 3 hours. It really moisturises the skin and also prevents sun tanning.

It works just fine on oily eyelids and lasts for hours. The removing process is however difficult, micellar water is not at all effective on it, I use olive oil for that purpose.

It is not matte and has tiny shimmers in it so looks like a metallic lipstick when applied on the lips. The shades range is good and are easily available everywhere . It is very affordable so you can't really expect a lot from it. If you want a lipstick that you can easily carry this is a good option to go for.

Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Compact Is my go to compact. I really like to use products that has SPF and when I learnt about this I was tempted to buy it. I apply it using a brush because the applicator provided with it may not blend the product on the skin properly and may leave a white cast. The sad part is that it has no shade range, it suits me fair skin tone but I don’t think it will suit dusky skin tone and will appear very unnatural. Also applying an SPF powder just won’t protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun so don’t forget to apply something like a moisturizer on which this will stick and don’t fade, thus protecting your face.

This is my favorite go to eyeliner. It comes in a very cute rose gold bottle with a golden handle. The applicator is a brush which may be tough for beginners to use as one or two bristles turn while using messing up the entire makeup so you have to be very careful. The consistency is thick so you need to apply several layers to get the rich black color. It dries up quickly to a matte finish.

This eyeliner was the first ever makeup that I could afford. It costs only 100 bucks but the packaging is really fragile hence cannot be traveled with. It has a long brush thus application is quite difficult. The consistency is really watery and takes a long time to dry. Several layers are needed to be applied to get the desired black color. However what I’ve noticed sometimes that even if I touch my eye by mistake it smudges and fades.
