Revlon Color burst Lip balms: Standout Remarquable and Whimsical Fantaisiste swatch and Review


I have used lip crayons before and this is the very first time I am using something like this. The moment I heard these lip balms were out in India, I was very excited to try them out and bought just 2 of them, one in matte and one in lacquer.  I am sure by now most of the bloggers have posted about this.

I found these lip balms from lifestyle store in Forum Mall, but now even the H&G has these lip balms stored. I bought these lip balms in the beginning of the month, I waited this long so I could try them out properly before giving the review. Both matte and lacquer lip balms are priced at INR800 for 2.7 gm.

These lip balms have cello tape stuck, something to show that it is a new product. I really wish the whole lip balm came in the plastic packaging  so that we as customers would know that somebody hasn't used the lip balm earlier. This cello tape is so easy to remove, use and put it back in place. I mean considering the price I am paying for this product and a top international brand, I expect atleast the packaging to be good. Ok! enough of me grumbling, let us get to the product.

Standout Remarquable:
When the SA showed me all the 16 lip balms; 8 in matte and 8 in lacquer and after having tried swatches for all, the one that impressed me the most was Standout Remarquable. It is a beautiful deep red in color. This a matte lip balm, having said that, it didn't make my lips dry at all. Most of the matte lipsticks after application feels very dry on the lips and also settles on the lines. There was no such thing with this lip balm. 

This lip balm is very moisturizing and has pepperminty flavor which lasts for about few minutes. The pepperminty flavor is used to plump up the lips.  The lip balm is so moisturizing and it just glides on the lips. The lip balm is very pigmented which I love and is completely opaque.  The color lasts for up to 3 to 4 hrs, after having my dinner, the color started fading. The good part is that the color fades out evenly and does not leave ugly patches.

Whimsical Fantaisiste:
Since I already chose a matte one, I had to choose one in lacquer. I chose this lovely mauve purplish shade. The lacquer ones have shimmer in them. These lip balms also have a pepperminty flavour and also very moisturizing like the matte partners. These lip balms also fades evenly and do not settle on fine lines. The only issue with this is, it doesn't last more than 1 or 2 and if you have something to eat in between, it starts to fade more quickly and only the shimmer remains. It is also not as pigmented as the matte ones. Hence the need to reapply after every 1hr or so. 

Love both the products. Yes even the lacquer one even if it means reapplying. The price is on the expensive side and I am sure would last really long. 

Hope you all this review? Have you tried these shades? Please leave your comment below.

The Body Shop- BlueBerry Shower Gel Review

I have been desperately wanting to finish my old shower creams as I have been eying on shower gels from Body shop and have been longing to use them. This is the first time I would be using a shower gel. The reason I selected Blueberry was only because it was a special edition. When I checked the fragrance at the store, I somehow felt the Blueberry body butter was very good much better than the blue berry shower gel.. again I didn't buy the body butters cause it is summer here and I still have a couple of heavy duty creams to finish off. :-(

What it claims: soap- free cleanser with blueberry extract.
Ingredients List: No ingredients list on the bottle.

My Review: The blueberry shower gel comes in a white sturdy transparent plastic bottle and a white plastic flip cap. The body is quite sturdy and can be used for traveling, though I prefer a small size bottle for traveling. The fragrance smells wonderfully of blue berry ( I still feel the Blueberry body butter smells better!), but it lasts only for a couple of minutes after shower.

The shower gel is in an attractive deep blue color and is of running consistency (it doesn't show much in the above pic. Look at the bottle in the first pic). I think this shower gel is perfect for summer as it is very light and fruity. The shower gel lathers well and doesn't leave any residue on the skin. Even the blue berry fragrance lifts up your mood in the morning. I have been using it for a week now and I don't experience any dryness on my skin. However I still follow up with regular routine of moisturizing with a very light lotion.

1. Soap free.
2. Smells of blueberry extract.
3. Running consistency and hence easy to finish up when you reach the end of the product.
4. Perfect for summer.
5. Doesn't leave residue after wash.
6. No dryness.

1.No ingredients list mentioned on the bottle.
2.It can smell very fruity for some.

Price is slightly on expensive side when you compare other shower gels in the market. This is INR425 for 250 ml. But then this is TBS, since this was a SE, no sale on this :-(

Rating: 4/5
Will you buy this product?: No, I want to explore the rest of the shower gels in TBS:-)

March - Empties Post TRESemme, Jergens, Lancome, Loreal, Olay and much more

I know, this is too too late to post an empty blog for the month of March.  I could have posted the empties for both march and April together but then it would be too many products. First thing, I was very busy with sooooo many things.. family functions and all the rituals that goes along with it. Second helping my friend with her own library and had loads of fun planning lots of stuff for the library .. finally ran for Pinkathon (a marathon for Breast Cancer awareness). Since this was my first time, I ran for only 3kms. It was fun. Super hectic but fun month. 
So coming to the empties post and what got me started? When I first started reading blogs, I used to wonder about the number of products the bloggers use. I find a hard time even finishing up even one bottle of lotion, let alone other make up. I really hesitated to start the blog mainly for this reason, thinking it is a total waste of money. So when other bloggers started posting their empties blog I was very excited that it encouraged the bloggers to finish up the product and to give a complete review. This is my first empties post and I have been using products religiously to finish them.These are pretty old products, some more than a year and half old and they had just one or two usages in them which I used them up in the month of March. Let's begin.

TRESemme Hair fall defense: I  love TRESemme shampoos and have been buying them back to back. I never had any issues finishing this one product. The shampoo is very mild and can be used for every day wash. Read review here.

Lancome Bi-Facil make up remover: Since this is gifted and from a very expensive brand, I was very stingy in using this up. This is the best make up remover I have used till date. Cleans away all my make up in just a single swipe. Love this!! Anybody ready to gift me this. Read review here .

Jergens Original Scent: Very light cream, mildly scented absorbs easily. Imported body lotion, I bought this mainly because it was on an awesome sale online. Love this product and lasts really long. Worth the price... very affordable. Read review here.

Olay Total effects cream (gentle) and face wash: I use this cream every single day religiously and it lasts about 3 months. I always stock this cream and face wash.  My skin looks radiant and wonderful when I use this. I use this as a moisturizer before my make up. Slightly expensive, but totally worth it. Read Olay-total-effects-7-in-1-day-cream review. Read Olay total effects 7-in-1-foaming cleanser review.

Lo'real Paris total repair 5 Serum: Had great expectations from this product, but it didn't work for my hair at all. What a waste of money.. Only I know how I finished it. I finished it because it smells good. I definitely will not be buying this. Read Review here.

Viba Pure Coconut Oil: Good quality coconut oil. It's pure coconut oil, so I used it both for my hair and my body as well. I got it free with some magazine, so I am not complaining. I am still eyeing on the Dove elixir oil. Read Review here.

Amway Satinique advanced 2in1 shampoo and conditioner: Loved this 2 in one shampoo and conditioner. My hair felt nice, soft and silky. I was doubtful about 2 in 1 part if the conditioner would actually work, but it was very good. very mild and smells wonderful. Definitely looking at buying a bigger bottle, that reminds me ... I would need to check the ingredients list as none was mentioned on sachet. Read review here.

Elemis Hand and body lotion: very mild lotion. I used it only for my hands since it had only 5 ml. Fantastic product, only problem issue being the price, I feel it is very expensive. The lotion gets easily absorbed, non-greasy and the fragrance doesn't linger. Read Review here.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hand cream: Was very impressed it had pro-collagen. Very mild and non greasy hand and nail cream. Too expensive. though it was just 5 ml, I loved using it. Read review here.

Lakme Black Eyeliner: I didn't care to write a review on this, as most of them must already be using this product for a very long time. Anything I say, would be less for this Lakme eyeliner. I think this is one of the best thing that Lakme has ever made. I have been using this since my college days and it is just perfect with it's matte black color and the brush which helps you make those beautiful curves. I tried a couple of other liquid eyeliners but the others could never even come close in terms of both price and quality.

Health and Glow Nail Remover: This nail remover is pretty decent.. It removes my nail polishes very easily and the glitter nail polishes in 2 or 3 swipes. I buy this only when I have run out of one and need one urgently. If you are into nail art, this nail remover can be a bit pricey.

Citron Vert Bath and Shower Gel: Again this was gifted. I never heard about this product and checked online too, but I didn't find anything related to the brand, hence I didn't care to write a review. Just a regular shower gel, nothing out of the ordinary. I love the packaging and so I am keeping the bottle:-).

Hope you love this empties post.

Nivea Happy Time Body Lotion Bamboo-Milk Non- stop Hydra IQ 24 h+ Review

 I have already reviewed about Nivea Happy time Shower cream. This is a Nivea body lotion. What attracted me to this was that the lotion consists of bamboo extract and milk proteins  and has orange fragrance as well . My Shower cream also has orange fragrance  and hence I decided to purchase this.

What it claims: Enjoy nourishing care and inspire your senses with the feel good sensation created for normal skin. Enriched with Bamboo extract and milk proteins, Nivea Happy time body lotion works deep within the skin to repair dryness layer by layer and strengthens the skin's own protection function. It's mild scent with orange flower leaves you feeling freshly cared for all day long. Nivea's unique formula naturally promotes a continuous moisture supply from within for long lasting soft skin. Skin compatibility dermatologically proven.

Non- stop Hydra IQ 24 h+: Fosters new Aquaporins- skin's own hydration channels. Use regularly to support a natural 24+ moisture.

Ingredients List:

My Review: Nivea Happy Time Body Lotion Bamboo-Milk Non- stop Hydra IQ 24 h+ comes in an pearl white sturdy plastic bottle with a matching flip cap. The lettering is blue in color. The lotion is milky white in color with a running consistency (see the pic below). The fragrance of the lotion is mild with orange and bamboo extract and disappears after few minutes of application. The fragrance is not overpowering and not very sweet, something which I love. I also own Nivea happy time shower cream (Review here) as well and with this body lotion, it just makes the fragrance lasts longer.

The lotion once applied absorbs easily and keeps the skin moisturized. However it does not fulfill the non stop  Hydra IQ 24 +, I feel the need to reapply after 5 or 6 hrs. This lotion is only for normal skin, so I am not sure if it will suit oily skin or dry skin. I have dry skin during winters, since the lotion is light and non-greasy, I prefer it only for summers, for the winters I still prefer the heavy lotions and body butters. 

1. Pleasant fragrance of bamboo extract and orange leaves
2. Fragrance not overpowering 
3. Gets easily absorbed into skin
4. Moisturize the skin for really long time.
5. Perfect for summer.
6. Price INR265 for 400 ml.

1.Does not fulfill the criteria about keeping the skin moisturized for 24 hrs
2. Contains paraben.

Rating: 4/5

April Haul- Revlon, Maybelline, Dirty Works and much more

OK.... just to be clear I didn't buy all these products at the same time...Some of these products I bought online and some from different stores at different times. So it's more like a collective haul. I am very excited to share this month's haul with you all. It's been a huge shopping for me. Hope you all like it.

1. Socks: I was actually looking for a fancy purse in Lifestyle Forum mall and these socks were placed right next to the purses. I didn't buy the purse but bought these cute looking socks from Ginger priced at INR99 each. One pair is black with red roses and the other is baby pink self embroidered. You might still be able to find these on sale. There were other cute looking ones but I just bought two.

2. Fan brush: I stopped at Health and Glow to check if they had the new Revlon Matte and Lacquer Lip balms. Unfortunately they didn't have it. I bought this fan brush cause I needed a brush for the highlighter. This is priced at INR80.

3. Maybelline Baby Lips: I bought the Maybelline Baby Lips in Tangerine pop with SPF 16 from H&G store. I checked the other flavors and most of them were nearing expiry so had to be content with only this one. Price is INR150

4. Green earrings: This I desperately needed for a family function and I needed a big Chunky earring as it is the only piece of jewellery I would be wearing. I didn't have time to go shop and so I bought it from a fancy store nearby. I was surprised to find they stored some pretty nice jewellery and necklaces. Overall happy!! I think this was around INR150

5. Dirty Works Buttery Salt Scrub: I have heard about this brand for the first time. It is a UK based brand. I have been wanting to get the Chocomania from The Body Shop, but since these were not sale and it is quite expensive for me otherwise, I found a cheaper alternative. I found the Dirty Works Buttery Salt Scrub, It is almost 50% cheaper and also is slightly higher in quantity. The packaging looked kind of retro, something like Soap&Glory ( I am yet to own one!:-().. So for its affordable price and great quantity, I bought it.

6. Dirty Works Hand Cream: I needed a hand cream as my previous hand cream was almost getting over and since I was already ordering the Body scrub from the same brand I decided to go with this one as well. I ordered the Dirty Works Buttery Salt Scrub and the Dirty Works Hand cream from fashion and you online website (link here) and it was on a sale.

7.  Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms: This was the favorite part of my purchase. Continuing my search for Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms and after all the shopping in the mall, I decided to check the Lifestyle store. I jumped with joy when the SA showed these jewels to me. They have 8 shades for matte and 8 for lacquer(swatch below). I bought just 2. One in Matte and one in Lacquer.  I bought 'Standout Remarquable' shade# 250 which is a lovely Matte red and 'Whimsical Fantaisiste' shade # 115 from the Lacquer collection which is a berry shade with shimmer. They are priced at INR800 each.

8. Revlon Eye-shadows: Like the Lip balms weren't enough I landed up buying these cute eyeshadows. This is really an awesome idea from Revlon, usually you get eye shadows in singles or in a palette. Here you can choose colors of your choice and make your own palette. Yes you heard it right ... you can connect all these singles and have your own palette.I bought 3 of them 'Onyx' shade#300, 'Java' shade#280, and 'Plum' shade#110. Out of the 3 only the Plum is matte. At INR 175 each, it super affordable. 

9. Nail Polishes: I bought the green Elle to suit the color of my dress for the function. The Eyetex Dazzler looked green under the store lights ... now it kinda looks bluish.:-( and finally the shimmer which I purchased is mainly for my nail art. All these were bought from a Fancy Store near my home. Prices: Elle- 50INR , Eyetex Dazzler- 40INR, Shimmer nail polish- 30INR

Phew, that was a long post ...

Nivea happy time Orange Blossom and Bamboo milk Hydra IQ Shower cream Review

I have seen Nivea products right from when I was 3 yrs old and that time my mom used to use only Nivea cream which used come in blue tins. Then when I went to college and my roomate was from Kuwait and she used Nivea body lotion and that was the first time I saw it, it was so milky and it had the very same familiar scent of Nivea... so anyways today I am not going to talk about cream and lotion it is about Nivea shower cream.

Herbacin Kamille Hand Cream Review

I never heard of this product until I googled it. So this hand cream was gifted by my mom's friend who went to Canada for a holiday.. (Hmm ... somehow all my products seem to come from Canada, be it a relative or a friend). So, I have reviewed about another Elemis Pro-Collagen hand cream before (Review here )and this is my second one. After using Elemis hand cream, I thought all hand creams comes in a cream or lotion like texture.. but not this one...

Maybelline New York Clear glow Shine free B.B Stick Review

I  never used foundations creams and still don't use them. Somehow the idea of blending or selecting the right shade scares me and seeing few people wearing the incorrect foundation shade, they look like ghost with all that white cast.. Ewww!. So I use only foundation in pressed powder form or a  tinted moisturizer. So you must have seen this product on my February haul... when the SA at Health and Glow store told me about this BB stick I was sold..I never knew something like BB cream ever existed (okk.. it has been in market for sometime, but I never knew). All I knew was the foundation in powder, cream or lotion form, concealer, tinted moisturizer, primer.. So I was curious and found out a little more about what this BB is all about.

L'oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Extra Black Mascara Review

 I love mascaras. They really make the eyes looks so beautiful and fresh and an instant step-up to glamour. When in hurry using just kajal, Masacara and lip balm can make you look perfect, be it an interview, or casual office wear or just meeting a friend or a date... I used to use mascara only for occasions until I met the ONE (you can really see from the pic how much I have actually used this mascara:-).. the lettering and the color is almost gone.)

TRESemme -Hair fall Defense shampoo Review

One day I saw this Tresemme Advertisement on TV and after all the hype this brand created I thought it was going to be expensive and I really was surprised that this product was inexpensive and quickly purchased both the Shampoo and conditioner. Ever since, this product has become my most trusted product and every time I tend to wander and lust after other new products I always come back to this Shampoo and Conditioner.

Himalaya Herbals Lip balm- Review

I never used lip balm when I was studying college. I just used to use Vaseline petroleum jelly just once a day and it was sufficient. But once I moved to Bangalore, because of the weather I needed to use a lip balm. I used several lip balms to treat the problem. This lip balm I am talking about today is the most, used by almost everyone as it is from a good brand and very very easily available and cost effective.

Thinai (Fox Tail millet) Chicken Biryani

Hi all,

This is yet another healthy recipe.. For people who don't know what Thinai (Pic shown in the end) is and its health along. Thinai otherwise known as Fox tail millet is one type of millet which is yellow in color. During my grandfather and great grandfather days, people mostly ate millets as their staple food instead of rice and wheat mainly because it is very healthy, cooling, gives strength and keeps you filled for longer hours. Millets in general are gluten free, high in protein, rich in nutrients and a great source of energy.There are several other millets which is listed below.
1. Little millet (Samai)
2. kodo millet (Varagu)
3. Barnyard Millet (Kudhiraivalli)
4. Finger Millet (Ragi)
 So let's get started with recipe, I made chicken biryani cause I wanted to try something different for my family and since it was a Sunday and we usually cook chicken I decided to go with Chicken biryani.

March haul- all time favorites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
As you all know I started  changing to a healthy diet and am also trying to change my lifestyle as well. The first thing I started off was cutting off on caffeine. As any true south Indian, I love coffee so much and some times have more than 3 times a day, but with determination to be healthy and with a conscious effort to change my lifestyle I switched to Green Tea. I initially used to hate it, but now after 2 months I am in love with it, so when my green tea got over, I rushed to the nearest Nilgiris store to buy them. This time I bought Tetley Green Tea and apart from that I also bought a couple of other favorites.

Garnier Skin Naturals Gentle Face wash Review

Fish Capsicum stir fry- No Sauces

As you all know I am trying to eat healthy and clean food with very light cooking. I am trying to reduce my weight and above all to be healthy. It is OK to indulge once in a while, but you should always try and stick to a healthy routine. Because of this, I am trying to innovate and also invent and discover some new healthy recipes which I will bring to you all as regularly as possible to help you all live a healthy life without compromising much.:-)

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish - Nude review

Hope you all are having a good weekend. I was just bored today and decided to paint my nails.. My previous nail colour had worn off,  and it was bright and pink and it was a colorama too... sorry didnt click the pictures... so I needed something more pale... so I painted my nails nude :-).

Elemis- Skin Nourishing Hand and body lotion Review

I have already spoken about an Elemis product earlier and  that was a hand lotion.. I never personally bought any Elemis product and these Elemis products I received was when my sister traveled to UK and these were given in the flight. My sis knows how much I love these free samples and she passes them on to me...Who doesn't love free samples? :-)

Chicken Capsicum Stir fry without any sauces-- My Recipe

These days I have started eating healthy and try to avoid both Rice and Roti.. and so I started trying different recipes so I don't get bored with my diet... Chicken Capsicum Stir fry is a healthier option, as it is protein and also capsicum is very good for our health as it helps in keeping the skin clear, prevents rashes and pimples. It contains vitamin A, which is good for eyes and helps prevent eye diseases. In this recipe I used mostly boneless chicken pieces for easy cooking.

Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Smoothing Serum Review

This was a serum that I am across because of my dear friend.. Until then I was using Livon..So the story of this serum was my best friend bought this serum and tried for two weeks on her hair but it didn't work for her and believe me she had this long beautiful straight hair.. So she asked if I wanted it.. I asked "for free?" she said yes:-)  but I wondered if it would not work for my hair too.. When I tried it, it was so good and works very well for my hair.. Thanks to my friend that I found something that works so wonderfully for me.

Olay Total effects 7 in 1 Day cream-Review

This product created such a huge name when it hit the market and the television and which had famous celebrities like Kajol and Madhuri Dixit advertising for it. The advertisements showed it can cure wrinkles and fine lines and gives instant glow upon regular usage and this was enough for me to give this a try though I do not have any wrinkles :P. I was particularly interested in this Olay product coming to India.. When I was young we used to get Olay lotions sent to us from of our relatives abroad.... It was called Oil of Olay and then there was Oil of Ulay which was similar. It was a light pink bottle with a black cap. ohh loved the smell of Oil of Olay, makes me nostalgic!:-)

Ayur Herbal Astringent With Aloe Vera Review

Today I would be reviewing an Astringent. I generally just wash my face and apply moisturizer, and upon go-ogling I learnt it is very important to tone your face and is as important as cleansing and moisturizing... So currently it is a part of my daily routine. Many people like me would be confused between a toner or an Astringent. So I have listed a couple of them below from this link  here and you can make your choice.

Olay Total effects 7 in 1 Foaming Cleanser Review

Today I would be reviewing one of favorite cleanser. I first came across this cleanser when the Olay advertisement were coming on TV about 2 years back. I decided to give this a try to see if it really worked for me.

The Two cleaners shown below are the same. The White one I bought separately and the other comes with the Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 day cream. Initially I used to buy only the white one but then felt it was cost effective to buy the pack. Though I later realized it was not much of difference.

Maybelline Colorama Astral Nailpolish Review

Today I would be reviewing about a Nail Polish and I guess this my second blog on make up. So, far I have done only skin care products. Anyways coming to the nail polishes... I never was that interested in nail polishes though I had strong long nails and I only once in a while painted them, that too when I get a mani and pedi done... yeah I can be pretty lazy that way ..

February Haul- Random Essentials

Hi lovelies,

This weekend I had an awesome time with my family. We went to Ampa mall and decided to look around. The moment we got down, we were so confused as to which way to enter the mall. This mall had a side entrance but there was some work going on and a huge traffic and the security directed us to  enter the  mall from the parking lot. Phew!! what a tiring walk.

Lucky me! still got to review my many other gifts:-))

Lancome Bi Facil Eye make up remover Review

I have never used eye make up remover before or infact any make up remover. I generally apply coconut oil or baby oil to remove my make up and wash my face using a regular cleanser and that was until my aunty from Canada gifted me this lovely Lancome remover.

Avon Foot Works Review

I usually go to the parlor to get my mani and pedi done. But then my mom usually gets cracks on the feet and its pretty expensive to be going to the parlor every week and hence decided to look out something for her weekly foot spa at home.. this is when my sis decided to gift my mom this Avon footworks and I also sometimes use this when I get bored at home during the weekends. OK enough about my story, lets talk about this Foot works. 

CKone- Apricot Facial Scrub Review

Before this facial scrub, I only used everyuth walnut facial scrub which was awesome. I bought this in Bangalore. I needed a new one as my old one  had gotten over and need a new one to combat the dry skin on my face and was a look out for a new one. So when I checked my local supermarket across various brands. This tube immediately caught my eyes with its huge size. I already own CK one perfume which I will review later, I was surprised to see a facial scrub from them and that too in a local supermarket. I was looking for Apricot or walnut  and was so happy cause this was a walnut one. I was hesitant to purchase as  I thought it must be some dupe and would be costly and that too for such a big tube, as there were no small size available, anyways I decided to go with this and bought this. The price is super amazing for brand, quantity and quality.

What it claims: CK One Apricot Facial scrub  gently scrubs away dull surface cells to reveal clean, fresh, healthy skin. As your skin undergoes its own process of natural, dead cells and other impurities accumulate and hide your skin's freshest layer. Calvin Klein Apricot scrub quickly unclogs pores, removes blackheads and complexion dulling dead cells. Our natural fiber cleansing complex in a smooth base is gentle enough to use everyday.

Viba- Pure Coconut oil Review

 Growing up, I never oiled my hair at all and still my hair was soft silky and  no hair fall.. now with all these shampoos and additional chemicals added to the hair I have been forced to oil my hair and scalp to reduce hair fall. So when I received this free sample I decided to give this a try.

What it claims: Viba Pure coconut Oil Naturally nourishing made from fresh, premium sun dried copra picked from the finest coconut farms. Viba is processed using Penta Pure (5 stage filtering process) technology, delivering highest level of purity. The state of art process ensures its natural aroma and retains freshness for a longer period. This is also an edible Oil and hence also has the nutrition facts also listed on the bottle.

Amway- Satinique Advanced 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner

I love all Amway products. period. Be it their shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, foot lotions, dish washing soap. I love them for mild fragrance and their consistency of the product is always light. Today I would be reviewing the sachets which I received from my cousin who is an Amway Agent ( I guess that's what they call them).

What it claims: Satinique Advanced 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner claims the following:
  • Naturally derived cleansers and light conditioners help leave hair clean and conditioned. * exclusive Ceramide infusion system restores vital proteins and ceramides, leaving hair soft and manageable and luxurious.
  • Rejuvenates, Strengthens and protects hair from further damage.

Oriflame- Soothing Foot Cream Chamomile

Hi everyone, Hope you all are doing well!

Today I am going to be reviewing about a foot cream. I never heard of foot creams apart from 'Crack' cream that is used to repair cracks on the heels or soles of the feet. Anyways one of my friend was selling these Oriflame products and was asking me to purchase something from the catalog. I decided to give it try, I didn't want to try anything for the face as I was not sure. I finally selected this foot cream.

Oriflame soothing foot cream is a unique blend of moisturizers, chamomile and primrose to soften and soothe. 

Elemis- Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream Review

Until recently I used to use the regular body or face moisturizer for my hands. This is a 5ml sample tube which I got from British Airways pouch they give on the plane.

Elemis is UK's largest and most popular hair and beauty brand. Elemis Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail cream is intensely hydrating hand and nail cream containing Padina Pavonica and Malachite delivers smooth, youthful looking hands and strong nails.

Jergens - Original Scent with Cherry-Almond Hydrators Moisturizer Review

This was when I was in Bangalore . My old moisturizer was almost over and I needed a moisturizer urgently as the winter was about to set in. I have a very dry skin  and my skin tends to irritate when I don't apply moisturizer. So, I decided to check for moisturizers online to look for a decent one without having to spend so much.:-). This one I bought from Urban Touch and since it was an imported product and on sale I literally grabbed it.
