Sulphate Free Conditioner

This conditioner is Sulphate Free, so it's safe to use on a daily basis. It also contains Moroccan Argan Oil, which makes hair smooth and shiny. This conditioner locks in hair colour and prevents colour bleeding, so a great option for those with colour treated hair. After rinsing off shampoo and squeezing out excess water from my hair, I apply a dime sized amount of this conditioner to my hair, focusing on the ends. I keep it for 3-5 minutes and then rinse off with cold water. Even in this short time, it makes my hair quite silky and smooth. But it contains alcohol, so it may dry out hair later. It also has a strong smell, typical of Tresemme products, which may irritate a sensitive nose. However, people with Smelly Hair Syndrome may find it beneficial as the smell stays even after washing.

Affordable Sulphate Free Shampoo

First things first, this Shampoo doesn't contain Sulphate. So it won't lather much, but that doesn't mean it's not doing its cleaning. It's gentle, hence can be used daily. It also contains Moroccan Argan Oil for silky and shiny hair. If you have coloured hair, this shampoo prevents bleeding of colour; so that's a huge plus! I shampoo twice every time I wash my hair and top it off with its conditioner. This made my hair a little dry though, but I've oily scalp so I don't mind. If you've dry hair, you should use a conditioner or serum after shampoo. This also has a strong smell, typical of the Tresemme products. Although it doesn't linger after washing off, it may irritate a sensitive nose. However, people with Smelly Hair Syndrome may find it beneficial. Overall, if you're searching for an affordable Sulphate Free Shampoo for your coloured hair, then it's a great option!

Does not combat body odour

Have been using this one for quite some time, but it has a very strong smell. As I have a sensitive nose, it irritates me a lot. It does stay all day but it's not a boon as it gets mixed with body odour and then you smell very different, and not in a good way. It didn't irritate my skin though. Someone who likes strong smell nay prefer it.

Affordable.

Good staying power.

No irritation.

4.5/5

Brightens and Tightens Skin

This cream is thick, rich and creamy in texture; thus providing all the hydration and nourishment needed for Aging Skin. But it doesn't feel greasy at all, it gets absorbed into the skin really quick. It has a very mild and pleasant fragrance, characteristic of this range. It contains Retinol, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid etc. which work wonders for mature skin. Although it can be used during both Day and Night, I use it every morning after cleansing and toning as it contains SPF 25 PA++. So, I don't have to use sunscreen separately. Haven't seen any huge difference in wrinkles and fine lines, but skin appears toned when used by my Mom. But I can feel my skin become radiant over a few days of usage.

Recommend for Hairfall

I was on the lookout for an Onion Shampoo for quite some time as Red Onion is known for tackling Hairfall, Hair Breakage and Thinning. And this one is free from SLS, Paraben and Silicon, which is definitely a plus as these harmful chemicals aggravate hair loss. After a few washes, I've definitely seen a decrease in my hairfall. I won't say it has completely stopped hairfall, but over long usage I feel this will be effective. However, this shampoo dries out my hair. Due to having an oily scalp, I don't mind as that provides volume to my flat hair. But even if you've dry hair, using a conditioner or hair mask will be enough to tackle it. So if you're suffering from hairfall and hair breakage, you should give it a try.

4.4/5

Great for Glowing Skin

It comes in a glass bottle and a dropper mechanism, it feels quite high-end. It has a mild and pleasant fragrance which doesn't linger long. This is great for people like me who've a sensitive nose. The serum is not too runny and has tiny gold flakes in it giving it a luxurious look. It gets absorbed in a jiffy and doesn't feel heavy on my oily skin. I use it everynight after cleansing and toning. However it's a bit sticky, so I layer it with a night cream. I didn't see any visible effect on fine lines of my Mom, but removing signs of aging takes quite some time. However, this did give a brightening effect on skin and keeps it hydrated whole night. I also saw a few of my acne marks lighten a bit, so I'm positive about its effect in the long term. Even though it seems expensive, but the the price is justified as it contains 24K Gold leaf extracts.

Worth The Price

I've been 'eyeing' this eye cream from St. Botanica and recently got my hands on it. First things first, don't be discouraged by its price. The quantity is huge (50g) which makes it quite reasonable. The cream is white in color and the texture is thick and creamy. At first, I was skeptical to use it on my oily skin, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's non-greasy and got absorbed instantly, leaving behind soft and nourished undereye area. I've been suffering from dark circles for some time, and quarantine irregularities and snacking worsened the situation. Since the day I'm using this eye cream, I've noticed a significant reduction in the darkness under my eyes. I won't say my dark circles have magically vanished, but so far the result has been positive. I use it religiously in my night-time routine. It has a sweet fragrance that kinda lingers and may irritate a sensitive nose. However, it's free from toxic chemicals like paraben, phthalates, sulfate and mineral oil and is cruelty-free, which is a bonus!
