I am fond of flaunting my hairs after shampoo and rarely do I oil my hair. Once in a week that is for only few hours, I can sit with oiled hair. I feel that the Parachute brand of coconut oil is famous among people of all ages and it is a brand that has gained trust of people for so many years. Parachute Advansed Coconut Hair Oil is enriched with ylang-ylang essential oil and vitamin E. It gives proper nourishment to hair and if oiled before hair wash. It gives proper strength to hair and protects 28% of protein loss from the hairs, hence it is always recommended to use it before hair wash. It can also be used as a hair massage oil and this hair oil comes in a typical blue color plastic bottle with a flip open cap. It comes in different sizes of bottle packing, you can choose accordingly as per your usage. It has a mild fragrance. The price is affordable. It is hypo allergic and it’s always better to do patch test if you are suffering from any skin ailments. Parachute Advansed Coconut Hair Oil can be spotted in every household. It can also be used as a conditioner to make the hair manageable. Few drops of oil applied just after the hair wash on wet hair works as a conditioner. It is easily available and it works against hair loss and frizziness and even takes care of split ends. I am using Parachute for a long time and there is no alternative available for me on this planet, it’s my own understanding. It gives a cooling effect and I massage my hairs with this oil once in a week. The new improved version of Parachute Advansed Coconut Hair Oil has a smell of cloves and I adore the smell.

Olay Natural White Day Cream Earlier, I used Garnier Anti-Wrinkle Cream but the advertisement of Kajol inspired me to use Olay Natural White Day Cream. Many times celebrity endorsement succeeds and yes, in case of Olay, it succeeded. It is formulated with Triple Vitamins B3, pro-B5, E and has SPF24 which protects our skin from UV sun rays. It is one of the best moisturising cream and it improves the skin texture, fades pigmentation, ugly spots and dark circles. It replenishes skin natural moisture level. It can also be used as a base for makeup. One small dot is enough for face. It blends well into the skin and there are no clumps. It is a light cream with a very mild fragrance. I use it twice a day after cleaning my face with my favourite face wash. I even use as a base when I put makeup for special occasions because I believe that it protects the skin from absurd effect of makeup creams and powder. I am using for more than a year and I have found noticeable changes in my skin texture and tone. Dark circles are no more and uneven skin tone has faded. Regarding complexion, I would say it mends the skin cells and give a natural glow which gives a look of clear complexion. It cleanses the deep seated pores and blackheads and white heads keeps a distance from the user. It comes in a translucent color plastic tub with a screw cap, nothing fashionable about it. It can be easily carried in ladies purse and price is fine, nor cheap neither too expensive. My feedback helped my close ones to adopt Olay Natural White Day Cream in their face care routine and all are happy with the result and dream to have a clear and clean skin is illustrated of the users. What you are waiting, try for yourself.

It adds a glow and helps in thorough cleaning of the skin. I even use to get my back cleaned mixing it with almond powder and the result is wonderful. I have this gel handy in my cupboard. I apply on burn marks and insect bites of monsoons. This year, on Holi, my son was smeared with colours and he had skin breakout and rashes and skin irritation. I applied this gel generously on his full body and surprisingly within two hours, the irritation subsided and the skin eruption did not flare up. Aloe Vera gel is not a new thing for Indians but people did not pay heed to its value till it has been advertised by various brands.

After rinsing with water, you will feel a fresh and cooling sensation and it will last for few seconds. It is good for all skin types and for kids to grannies. Anyone can use without any hesitation.

Nivea cream is the oldest cream to be used in winters for whole body. I have seen my grandparents and parents use and now I and my kids are using. It is a legacy that is being transferred from one generation to another…reason, its intense formula and the quality of the product. No doubt, it is optimal product for light and severe winters. We family of four apply on our bodies throughout the winters and we buy a family pack. The fragrance is mild and soothing and the hue of the cream is pure white. It comes in a dark blue steel tub with a cap of same color. It comes in all sizes from a small pack to a large family pack. It guards the skin from the harshness of the winters. It is a multipurpose daily use cream and it does not stain our clothing nor leaves any residue of foul smell. It is dermatologically tested and approved. It is soothing for the heel cracks. Nivea Crème contains skin-related Eucerit a unique moisturizing ingredient which nourishes the skin. It is best for the elbows, knees and toes, it removes the blackness of these spots. It is a great balm for lips in winters. It is good for all skin types and for all age groups. I believe it is one of the oldest cream which gives intense moisturization to body and there isn’t any doubt about it. It has gained a trust of all generation and day by day, the brand is improving Nivea cream. The price is okay and one can easily buy one pack for their self or family use. Very oily skin individuals should avoid Nivea cream. The ingredients of the product is mentioned on the packing and it has a long shelf life. It can be also used on cuts, wounds and burns.
Not for oily skin
We live in plains and we brave the extremities of both, summers and winters. We have to keep our vanity box ready for both the seasons. In summers, I require light moisturizer but in winters, my skin gets too dry so I need something creamier and intense with oily base so that it works on my skin. I tried Lakme Skin Gloss Winter Intense Moisturizer this winter and I became fan of this product and it has found a place in my face care regimen. Even my hubby uses the same for himself, so we buy two packs for ourselves. It mentions for women only but my hubby follows my care regimen and thankfully, we both have more or less same skin texture. It blends well and absorbs into the skin and gives a feeling of smooth skin. It works for 6-7 hours so we use twice a day. Lakme is the brand that we have been seeing our family use since our childhood and every generation trust Lakme products. It has glycerine content and keeps the skin hydrated in winters. Even it can be used as a makeup base in wintry season due to its high absorbing nature and non-greasy. It prevents dryness and control flakes. We use it as a daily day cream in winters but I have heard from few friends and family that they opt Lakme Skin Gloss Winter Intense Moisturizer as a night cream…it is up to the individual choice and comfort. It comes in a blue glass tub with a sturdy silver screw cap. It can be carried easily in your travel bag without the fear of spillage and leaks. The people having oily skin should not use Lakme Skin Gloss Winter Intense Moisturizer but my recommendation is for normal and dry skin. Use and feel the suppleness and a sign of radiance on your face.
Does not clog pores
For all skin types
Provides rich nourishment
Reduces dark spots and blemishes
A decade before, we use to remove makeup and wash our face before sleeping but never thought of applying any cream to our face, thinking it might clog the pores and it won’t breathe easily. With research, these options appeared to be a myth and the clinical trials confirmed that we need night to replenish our skin and it is good option for the skin to heal. When my beautician suggested me to use L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Night Cream, I was not ready to try, the thought to use as night cream seemed to be greasy and uncomfortable. She insisted in braving winters to try and I started my night skin care by using L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Night Cream. To my surprise, it wasn’t greasy rather it absorbed and blended well into the skin. After a fortnight, I could see the transformation in my skin texture. It appeared clean, tight and a glow triggered on my face and it did not go unnoticed by my hubby. Since then, I am using and have found soothing. I promote the product sharing my experiences with L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Night Cream. I require two packs for a month and I mostly buy online though it is available in retail outlet as well as online. It comes in a sturdy glass jar with purple screw cap. It works on dark spots, blemishes and open pores and the skin is radiant after sincere and regular use. The complexion improves due to suppleness, cleanliness and it mends the skin at night. It improves sun tan. It is a bit pricey but the performance of the product won’t deter you to buy, worth the price. It is safe for acne prone skin and it reduces acne and the unevenness of the skin. My verdict: Include in your skin care routine.

L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Advanced Repairing Shampoo is enriched with ceramide-cement formula. It claims to arrest hair fall, repair brittle and frizzy hair, dullness and split ends. Celebrity Aishwarya Rai endorses this product and many people get attracted due to celebrity endorsement. I visited my relative’s house and found the L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Advanced Repairing Shampoo upside down white bottle with a sturdy flip-top cap of red colour. I was eager to know about the shampoo and the results that it claims is true till what extent. In between our conversation, I cut to ask about the shampoo which had caught my attention. She was using since more than a month with a usual feeling of celebrity endorsement. She has long hairs and she said that she was satisfied with the L’Oreal shampoo. She uses twice a week and there was remarkable difference in her hair structure. She uses hair dye which had made her hair frizzy but she is thankful to Aishwarya Rai for endorsing such a beneficial product. She even noticed change in hair fall and volume and suggested me to try once. The packaging of L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Advanced Repairing Shampoo is attractive and travel friendly. It comes in different sizes and the cost is pocket friendly. The ingredients of the shampoo is mentioned on the bottle and it comes with 36 months shelf life. The demerit that I found is that all the ingredients used are toxic. It comes in white creamy liquid and lathers well leaving the mane squeaky clean. It has a mild fragrance though it does not last longer, seems to be a synthetic aroma. On my friend’s advice, I did use for my medium length hair but wasn’t much satisfied. I am fonder of organic products and I use henna for my hair and L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Advanced Repairing Shampoo did not leave my hair manageable. The after effects differ from individual to individual, my relative is happy to use.

These days, charcoal are much in use in different cosmetic components. Charcoal is not a new thing but now activated charcoal is being used in masks, toothpaste, etc. I was bothered by blackheads, it is localized on my chin and nose. I had tried lot of things before using Charcoal mask cream, but nothing worked well. I tried to remove with tweezers, toothpaste, egg whites and what not. Whatever, I read or discussed in person, same day, I tried but still the deep seated ones did not change their seat. Sometimes, I got annoyed and few times, I hurt myself while scraping the black head area with the tweezers. One of my blogger friend got a chance to review Charcoal mask cream and she was satisfied with the outcome. She briefed me about the product and its effectiveness on blackheads. I ordered on Flipkart and within two three days, it was in my hand. I washed my face with my favourite face wash and pat it dry. I smeared the charcoal mask cream on my face with my fingers leaving the eyes and the lip region. I kept on my face for half an hour. In the meantime, my mom caught me with black mask and gave a sound lecture. I washed off after half an hour with plain water moving the fingers in circular motion. It took 10 minutes to clean off completely. I did not figure much in first use but after using thrice in a week, there was great improvement. The onlookers too noticed change in my black head attack portion. It had diminished to a great extent and the uneven patch had improved a lot. Now, my stress of blackheads are almost over as I have included Charcoal mask cream in my regular face care regimen.

Actually, whenever, I go on a shopping spree, I am fascinated by the face wash that is displayed on the store. Something new attracts me and I buy for myself. Land to buy two three types of face wash, trying each one after another. This time, my eyes caught hold of O3+ Brightening and Whitening Face Wash and I bought two for my household, definitely one for me and another one for anyone staying in my house would love to use else that too would be mine. It comes in a hygienic tube pack with a flip flop cap. It is transparent and gel based and half a coin is enough for a single face wash. You can carry on your journey; travel friendly. Price is pocket friendly. There is content of Aloe Vera and cucumber along with other products. Wash your face and apply face wash in a circular motion and rinse with fresh water. It leaves skin tight and washes off dirt and grime. If you are wearing makeup, remove your makeup and then use the face wash for cleaning your face and neck region. I have a normal skin so it gets tightened after wash but good on skin in humid weather, so I believe it is best for the people having oily skin. It removes oil and dirt and leaves skin clean. There is a mild lemony fragrance in the face wash which lingers for not more than half an hour. It is not too strong rather very soothing. O3 face wash cleans your face but do not get fooled that it will enhance your complexion. It has cleaning properties and it works well on uneven patches, suntan, etc. but don’t think of getting milky white complexion. My verdict: It is good for the oily skin and it works well on skin and gives a clean and fresh look.

Johnsons No More Tears Shampoo Johnson & Johnson baby products are popular since many decades. J&J was used for me, I used for my kids and hopefully, my DIL will be using for her kids. A name common in baby care. Since few years, controversy triggered in J&J products claiming to be carcinogenic and the brand saw pitfall in their sale. J&J improved their product and dropped the harmful chemicals from the products. It was a revolutionary step of J&J. No more tears shampoo of Johnson & Johnson is best for the babies. A shampoo is an important product for the baby care and it should be easy going else it is difficult to manage the infants, toddlers and kids while shampooing. They will get unmanageable if it brings tears into the baby’s eyes. No more tears shampoo of Johnson is gentle to the eyes and the babies adore its caress. Since three years, I am using for my niece and we are satisfied with the result. She enjoys being shampooed, it gives full cleaning to the head and the hair and leaves it soft and shiny after each shampoo and clears all the dirt. Babies play in ground or on floors when they start crawling, and walking and tend to become dirty. We use Johnsons No More Tears Shampoo thrice a week and have discovered that it is awesome for her hair. It is a hypoallergenic; Dermatologist and Allergy tested; Paediatrician tested. It is safe for the babies and new born, no irritation in the eyes, J&J claims and our experience with the product confirms their claim.

In my free time, I keep smelling her head the day her hairs are shampooed, I am in love with the fragrance. No more tears shampoo comes in a plastic container with a pump dispenser and the color of the shampoo is light lemony color. It is easy to use and carry during travel.

I picked Lakme Rose face powder for myself and my Mom. Lakme is the name in cosmetic industry we have grown with and most of the products are adored by Eve’s. It is a loose powder and available in two shades, soft pink and warm pink. It says that using this [product will give rosy tint which we are yet to discover. In summers, using Lakme rose powder is a great respite as it is difficult to wear heavy makeup in the heat wave. I use for daily wear in summer, day and evening care. I have discovered that it has SPF included and works as a sunscreen.
I religiously dab and blend before stepping out. For daily wear, I use soft pink and it blends well into my complexion…but, here, I want to mention that Lakme should think about people having a wheatish complexion. It won’t blend into the skin…launch one more shade for the real Indian complexion. In winter care, I use Lakme Rose face powder occasionally because we have extreme weathers and face powder does not suit us due to arid climate in winters. For party wear, I wear the warm pink shade of Lakme Rose face powder along with my favourite foundation. It sets the foundation well on the face and neck area and it holds the makeup in a cool place. In hot weather people who perspire profusely has to take care if using Lakme Rose face powder.
The price of the product is good and the quantity offered is up top mark. Lakme claims to have used rose petals for fragrance, there is mild fragrance and I am happy because I don’t like strong fragrance. The demerit that I find in this product is packaging. It is a loose powder so it cannot be used perfectly keeping in the Lakme packaging. It spreads all over and more difficult to carry. I transfer the content to another tight-mouthed container so that I don’t waste face powder by spilling around. I recommend Lakme Rose face powder for adults and it is great for summers.

Boon for Face Tea Tree Facial Wash of Body Shop is indeed a blessing in disguise. I stepped in an departmental outlet to buy groceries and toiletries. The girl on the counter approached me to sell toiletries. At one go, I declined excusing myself that I pick the product that I use in my daily skin regimen. She insisted me to use for my teenage daughter who was accompanying me. She has a combination skin and this product is better for oily and combo skin. I bought the product and guided my daughter to use and I was satisfied with the result.
The oil film that clung to her face in hot summers was nowhere to be seen and her face skin looked normal skin. Face wore a clear skin look with glow within two weeks of use. I thanked the girl that I met at the outlet. I started using for myself and discovered that it was suitable for my normal skin. Tea tree oil is infused in the face wash which takes good care of skin. Tea Tree Facial Wash comes in sturdy packaging of green color plastic bottle with a black colour flip open top. All the ingredients and direction to use is clearly mentioned on the pack.
It is a travel friendly pack still I insist to carry them in a leak proof bag so that it does not mess with other articles. We use twice a day and half a coin amount is enough for face and neck area. It lathers mildly but it cleanses the skin freeing them from dirt and dust. My daughter and I both are happy using Tea Tree Facial Wash and I recommend. The quality and performance of the Face Wash is awesome and it is worth the amount spent. The tea tree oil is beneficial for skin discoloration, blemishes, scars and acne. It cleanses the blemishes, and checks oiliness of face and even uneven patches on face fades with regular use. It is easily available in stores and it can be bought from different online shopping portals, such as Amazon, The Body Shop, etc.
