Aroma :: All Good Scents Review

Aroma :: All Good Scents Review

Hi Everone,

Who does not want to smell good? Well, I do and all the time. When you smell good and you look good you can win over any heart. The other day I was searching for good perfumes and I bumped into the brand called All Good Scents (Website: https://allgoodscents.com). They have a huge range of perfumes available with them. I thought of giving a try and wrote back to them. After a couple of emails, they send me their best scents for him and her and I was super excited to try them on and reviewing them on the blog and share the details with you.

When I received these two scents, I kept the woman’s scent for me and gifted the men’s scent to my partner in crime – Saurabh. While I write and pose for the blog, he is the man behind the camera. So, today I’m going to review and write my thoughts about the woman’s scent which is LOVE & JOY – EAU DE PARFUM and give you Saurabh’s thought about the men’s perfume which is ROCKSTAR – EAU DE TOILETTE.

LOVE & JOY – EAU DE PARFUM for WOMEN

IMG_1111

I love the packaging, which is yellow in colour with golden butterflies all over the cover giving the cover a fresh, light and morning feel. The perfume bottle is very handy and feminine with almost clear glass with a pinch of yellow tone. The cap of the bottle makes it look more sexy and chic. The fragrance stays for really long and for me it stays for the whole day. I have to spray two times and I’m good to go for the whole day.

IMG_1105

The company explains that while the smell of the perfume is a symphony of flowers with the Top Notes : Freesia, Peony, Litchi, Heart Notes : Rose, Lily Of The Valley, Magnolia, Base Notes : White Musk, Amber, Powdery Notes, I would say that yes the smell is like flowery and powdery but it is addicting. I love the scent personally. The price for 75ml bottle is Rs. 1500.

ROCKSTAR – EAU DE TOILETTE for MEN

IMG_1081

 

One thing they got right and you’ll notice it instantly the catching colour blue. The design of the bottle is edgy, ergonomic to hold, won’t slip out of your hand. Now about the fragrance. Fragrance is strong, only two puffs would do the trick. Mind you, when I say strong, do not confuse it with those perfumes which itches you in your nose. When I say strong it means it stays with you for long.

IMG_1095

The company says that the fragrance is an explosion of soft spices and woods visited with audacity. Top Notes : Cardamom, Lavender, Bergamot, Heart Notes : Cinnamon, Cumin, Orange Blossoms, Base Notes : Tonka Beans, Sandalwood, Cedar Wood. I think thefragrance is subtle yet sharp if it’s a mixture of James Bond meets Ethan hawk.’ – Saurabh. The price for 100ml bottle is Rs. 1500.

I hope you like the review and thank you so much for reading!

Product Review: Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème

Product Review: Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème

Hi Everyone!

In today’s life stress and tension affects our body and hair. Gray hair is a common problem among everyone and it starts from a very early age. I remember, I have gray hair when I was in school and I use to be so embarrassed about the same. I have tried many colours and henna as well. For me, I think henna works the best for my hairas I love the nourishment it gives. It’s just the nourishment that I love. Well, when I heard about the Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème, I thought I had to giveit a try.

I have recently coloured my hair (as you might know if you are following me on my social handles) so I have convinced my mother to try it for me as she also use hair colour. Read further to find out about the products and my verdict about it.

IMG_1056

What’s the product claim?

Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème is a crème based hair colour enriched with the conditioning of henna and nourishment of coconut oil.

IMG_1065

What do you get inside the pack?

You will get two sachets of colour & developer inside the pack of 20gm and 20ml for Rs. 39.

IMG_1040

IMG_1035

My Verdict:

The first thing which is very good about this product is it is very pocket friendly. You will not get the goodness of coconut, the nourishment of henna and also colouring effect in this price anywhere else. When I opened the pack and took out the developer, I can smell the coconut oil fragrance. The colour crème look creamy and the colour of it reminds me of my henna days. Somehow I never liked the smell of coconut oil, but this is any day better than the strong smell of ammonia. Another good thing about this product is, it is an ammonia free product. When I mixed the developer and the colour together, it formed a very thick paste and it is non drippy which I like. I hate those hair colours which are liquid and tends to drop. I took a little swatch test before applying it to my mom’s hair.

IMG_1046

The colour of the products changed instantly once it touches my skin. It is very easy to apply as the sachets inside the product are pre – measured. Apply the crème for 30 minutes and then wash it. My mom has frizzy hair as she is using hair colour from really long now, but after using the Godrej Nupur coconut henna crème her hair are much more manageable than before.

IMG_1053

 

The product as of now comes in four colours burgundy, black, dark brown and natural brown. I have used dark brown to my mom’s hair.

Rating: 4.5/5

I just coloured my hair thus I could not use it, but as soon as my hair colour will start to fade, I’m definitely going to try this to my hair. Thank you so much for reading.

Product review:: Spinz Sun Tan Remover

Product review:: Spinz Sun Tan Remover

Hi Everyone!

All of us experience tanning on exposure to the sun. Sometimes we are completely tanned – face, hands and feet included! It drives us mad, but there is no way to avoid it. I had been to a summer vacation for 3 days in Rajasthan and had fun in the swimming pool, safari and all the activities. But each time went out in the sun, I get worried about getting tanned and how to remove it.

I have tried lots of home remedies and the creams available in the  market to remove my tan but it does not work. A few days ago I saw the Spinz Sun Tan Remover video and I immediately thought of giving it a try.

So, here’s a full review of Spinz Sun Tan Remover.

Product claims:

De-Tanned Radiant look in 5 minutes.

Salon like fairness in just 5 minutes.

Fairer in just 5 minutes.

Does not contain bleach or any other harmful chemicals.

Key ingredients are milk, lemon and honey.

IMG_9927

Direction for use:

  • Single use requires about 8 to 9 grams if used only on the face. The sachet 9 gms ideal for one time usage on face and neck.
  • Apply the cream generously on your face, avoiding the sensitive area like the eye contours.
  • Massage gently in slow circular motions and leave on skin for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, wash with water and pat dry.

IMG_9928

Price:

Single use sachet worth Rs. 10, 25gm tube for Rs. 49, 50gm tube for Rs. 89. The product mainly bought through medical shops & modern trade stores.

IMG_9930

My Verdict:

My skin is super sensitive and I get scared of using new products on my face. But still I tired the Spinz Sun Tan Remover to my face to see how this tan remover works. In India, we have very few tan remover creams. So, I’m always in search of a good tan remover as you cannot stop the sun to damage your skin, but you can get your lost fairness with the help of tan remover. The product pricing is very affordable and I think anyone can use it. I do not like the packaging of the product much, but then I think as the price is so affordable, we can overlook the packaging part. As mentioned in the pack of the Spinz Sun Tan Remover, I wet my face with some water, then then applied a little to my problem area just to see if the cream is irritating my skin or not. But to my surprise it did not. Then I took the cream in good quantity and applied it onto my face and neck. The cream is very light and spread like butter on the skin (with the moist skin). The cream also has a sweet smell which is not very much . After 5 minutes I washed off my face with water. It did make my skin look refreshed. As I do not like to put anything on my skin, which can hamper it later, thus I washed my face again with my face wash and then too my skin look a bit brighter and refreshing. I think this product actually works and as it does not irritate my skin, I can say it does not contain any bleach. #SpinzBanTheTan

Rating: 4/5

IMG_9935

Key points:

Pros:

  • Affordable price
  • The cream is very soft and spread like butter.
  • Does not irritate the skin at all.
  • It does remove sun tan and leaves the skin brighter and refreshing.
  • After using face wash, I can still feel the same.

IMG_9936

Cons:

  • Packaging is not that good, but it is ok for an affordable product like this.
  • I think all of you should try this once. If not buying the big pack, give the sachet a try and I’m sure you will like it.

Product Review: Philips Satinelle Essential Epilator

Product Review: Philips Satinelle Essential Epilator

Hi Everyone!

I absolutely love all the products from Philips. I use their hair straightener and trust me, it’s a one hair tool that I cannot live without. So, recently I got hold of their newly launched Satinelle Legs and Arms Epilator BRE200/00 for women, which is endorsed by none other than Alia Bhatt. So, today I’m going to review and share my thoughts about Epilators and what I thought before using it and after using this.

For me salon trips are really a big task because I’m on the go all the time. Hair removal is a challenge for me. I have actually tried everything possible which will take as much as less time. So, after getting this cute and handy Philips Epilator, my life becomes a little easier.

IMG_9616

 

I’m always scared of the word Epilators! I heard from a few of my friends that it hurts bad as it plucks the hair out, Epilators make your hair hard, etc. Firstly, yes it hurts a little but trust me it’s just a fraction of seconds that it’s just like a small ant bite. Secondly, it does not make your hairs harder. In fact, it will slowly soften your hairs and then make the hair growth even lesser.

IMG_9623

Why it is better than the waxing?

I have a terrible experience in waxing after that I’m scared to my death doing it in parlours where they use hot wax on you and then use strips to take the hairs off. Once they use such hot wax that they end up hurting me. With Epilators, there are no such issues. Plus epilating is quick in comparing to waxing. Also, I don’t know how much you spend on your one visit to a parlour to get your waxing done, but here you can get a Philips Eplilator just for Rs. 2495 and you are sorted. It is travel friendly and easy to use. I remember when I first started waxing it hurt like hell, but then slowly you start to get used to it, same goes with the Epilators. I will, of course, choose epilator over waxing.

IMG_9650

What the product Claim?

Enjoy long lasting smoothness with Philips Satinelle Essential epilator. Gently removes hairs at the root, as short as 0.5mm. The hair grows back thinner and more slowly to enjoy up to 4 weeks hair-free skin. Epilation removes 4x shorter hair than waxing, and is hassle free and no need of waiting till the next waxing session. It is an unique epilation system with gentle tweezing discs.

IMG_9661

My Verdict:

Philips Epilator available in three different variants: Philips Satinelle BRE200/00, Philips Satinelle Advanced BRE210 and Philips Satinelle Essential BRE201. I got the basic one which is Philips Satinelle Essential BRE200 which comes with a single head epilator, a brush to clean the epilator and a sensitive area cap. It is a corded device which I do not like. I feel like it should have a rechargeable battery which can work without the power cable. What I like is, it very portable and handy, travel friendly, easy to operate. The head can be detached and cleaned under running water for better hygiene.It actually removes the hairs softly and it does not pain much because of its high speed. The epilation discs remove 4x shorter hairs than wax (0.5 mm) at the root. So, no need to wait until the next waxing session.

All in all it is a great product to have!

I love the white and sliver combination which is making it look edgy. I used these products for seven days and they really showed positive results. My skin is softer and less dryer than earlier.

Product Review:: Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker

Product Review:: Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker

Hi Everyone!

As you guys might have noticed that we have changed our blog a little bit to give you guys more information. You will see Fashion, beauty, events, lifestyle and lookbook, all in different sections and we promise that we will increase our frequency of blog posts from now on.

Today, we are doing a review of the latest products I have my hands on and for which I have heard that these are awesome hair care products. It’s the Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker. I have been using them for around three weeks now and I think I’m finally ready now to review them.

Let’s start with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9. This product is a wearable styling cream.

IMG_8164-1(1)

Price:   Rs. 1400 for 150ml

What the product claim:  Potion 9 is the ultimate versatile styling cream with 9 botanical extracts. It helps restore lost moisture and rejuvenates the healthy look of your hair. Perfect for styling your hair into multiple look with flexible hold.

IMG_8151-1

Application:

Apply to damp hair for conditioned soft movement. Do not rinse. Blow-dry or air-dry for a silky, touchable  look. Alternatively, apply to dry hair for more texture and control.

My Experience with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

I have thin hair and recently they went very dry because of my regular styling for events or lookbook shoots. After doing my shampoo, condition and towel drying the hair, I apply the Sebastian Professional Potion 9 to the length of my hair. I normally blow dry my hair, which worked fine with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9, also you can air dry your hair which gives same shine. In case of moisture and rejuvenates the healthy look of the hair, I would say that this product did help my hair gain the lost shine and moisture. They are more manageable now from my past experience. I have used a heat protector before using any heat styling to my hair, but that did not work for my hair, but I can say this cream is working for my hair. This cream also holds my curls for 2-3 days till I wash my hair. Also, if you would want to tie your hair into dun or any other style, you just need to apply the product to your dry hair and it will actually help styling within more manageable way. So, this is great for styling hair as well. Always remember not to use this product to the roots because it will grease your hair and you will get the feel to wash your hair the next day only. I love the soft smell of this product.  I also like the smart look of the bottle and the press dispensing pump which makes it easy to use.

IMG_8186-1

  Pros of the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

  •         It does nourish my hair and give it a shine.
  •         Protect from heat
  •         It helps hold my curls for 2-3 days till I wash my hair.
  •         Use it to your dry hair for styling and have more manageable hair.
  •         Smart look of the bottle and the press dispensing pump.
  •          Smells really good

Cons of the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

  •   It is a little pricy product but looking at the pros of this product I think it is ok.
  •   If applying to the roots, it will grease your hair.

Rating:   4/5

Now it’s time for the Sebastian Shine Shaker. It’s a lightweight shine spray.

IMG_8171-1

Price:  Rs. 1450 for 75ml

What the product claim: 

Ultra-light, high gloss aerosol spray. For light but luminous mirror-shine.

IMG_8146-1(1)

Application:

Spray into dry hair for a mirror-like shine finish. Use with hot tools for luminous shine and to protect hair from heat. Light-touch radiance.

My Experience with the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

Honestly, I did not use this product much, but the stylist told me that after I finish styling my hair, spraying a mist of the Sebastian Shine Shaker will add more shine and protect my hair from pollution and harsh sun rays. I have tried this product to my hair and it did add a little shine but I felt like washing my hair on the second day as it made my hairs a little greasy. The product says its a lightweight shine spray, but I believe because I used so many products (shampoo, conditioner and the Potion 9) before using it, that is why it happens. However, I love the smell of the spray and it is easy to apply because of its sprayer which spray a mist and doesn’t spray in one place. I have heard that this product worked very well for others.

IMG_8192-1(1)

Pros of the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

  •  Lovely smell
  •  Easy to apply
  •  Protect from heat

Cons of the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

  •  It made my hair look greasy.
  •  Expensive for 75ml product.

Rating:  3/5

I’m waiting for my potion 9 to get over so that I can start using Shine Shaker. Both products together does not work for me.

Product Review – Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Product Review – Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Hi Everyone!

If you follow me on social media, then you might know that I recently got invited to a Scholl India event where I got hold of their new product Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi and the Scholl Velvet Smooth Daily Foot Cream Moisturizer.

At the event, Scholl India organised pedicure for us where they used the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi and then applied Scholl Velvet Smooth Daily Foot Cream Moisturizer. I was very impressed with the result and decided to review it.

IMG_9911-1

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi will be available across all major shoe chains and modern trade stores across metros and online retail outlets Flipkart, Amazon, SnapDeal at a price of INR 2,850 and additional roller for INR 899. The foot and nail cream is available at INR 180.

IMG_6213-1

IMG_6252-1

These days, women lead hectic personal and professional lives which leave them with little time to participate in time consuming and lengthy pedicure sessions. So, I was very excited when the world’s leader in consumer health and hygiene, RB (formerly called Reckitt Benckiser), launched Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi electronic foot file – a global innovation set to take the personal grooming sector in India by a storm.

The electronic foot file comes in a pack with the following contents:

1 x Electronic Foot File

1 x Roller Head

4 x AA Batteries

1 x Cover

IMG_6224-1

I love the design of the product. Because of the rubber handle it is very steady and will not fall out of your hand. Also, I love the hustle free and easy to start the product as you just have to twist the silver band from its neck and it will start working. There is no button which you need to push on and off or put any settings. I really love this feature of the product.

IMG_6254-1

You will get a cap with this product which covers the Express Pedi filer and keeps it safe. The cover makes it very convenient to keep the Express Pedi safe and use it.

IMG_6271-1(1)

The roller of the Express Pedi is like a gentle and safer version of using a sand paper on the skin. It is specially designed with a Microlumina roller head to effectively and speedily remove tough, lifeless skin and calluses by exfoliating the feet through a gentle rotating action. The absence of sharp blades makes it safe to use.

IMG_6245-1

I used this product on me and believe me in a couple of minutes it removes all the hard and dead skin. I have been using the manual foot foil where you have to sit and work really hard to remove all your dead skin. This product is surely effective as I used this on my dad’s feet as well to give it a little test because he has really tough and dry skin because of working and standing for long hours and he really needed a high dosage of pedicure! I spend five minutes on each of his feet and Voila, all the hard and dead skin was gone like magic! He became a fan of this product as well. Here’s a small video explaining how you can use it:

If we talk about what I did not like about this product is the packaging as it is not very good, looking at the price they are charging for this product. The packaging could have been a little better with a box packaging and less plastic. Also, I found the Express Pedi a little noisy but you have to expect that when something is rotating at such a high speed it will make some noise.

IMG_6196-1

Positive Points:

Easy to handle: Rubber grip gives it a sturdy hold and help prevent slipping from your hands while using.

Safe to use: Designed with a Microlumina roller head to effectively and speedily remove tough, lifeless skin.

Easy to operate: You just have to twist the silver band from its neck and it will start working.

Travel Friendly: It does not have cords that need plugging into an electric board. This makes it travel friendly too.

Easy to store: Because of the cap, which come with the product it is easy to store and keep it safe.

Value for Money: I think this is the best product in the market and it delivers what it claims.

Negative points:Packaging: I feel that the packing of this product can be a little better.

Overall, I love this product and it is a must have for every family. Anyone can use it and it helps achieve soft, beautiful pedicured feet on the go! It is advisable for best results apply Scholl Velvet Smooth Daily Foot Cream Moisturizer after using the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi.

IMG_6231-1

Would I repurchase Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi?

If I break this – Yes, I would.

Weekly Tip: Product review – Faces Glamon Lip Gloss

Hi Everyone,

I got many requests for a review post on the Faces Glam On Lip Gloss when I posted an instagram picture of this product. So, here is it for all of you.

So, let’s start with what the company says about this product and its price.

The packaging says: Moisturized lips, Radiant and full of light with an envelope of bright color with long lasting lip gloss that lasts for more than 6 hrs.

Their website says about this product: Easy to apply, high shine lip gloss, vanilla flavored.

Let your lips do the talking.

My opinion on the Product:

Talking about the packaging, the gloss comes in a black cover with contain all the details of the product and the price. This cover also helps to protect the lip gloss from any kind of damage. I really like the look of the lip gloss as it comes in a slick thick plastic bottle. The golden rectangular cap makes it look more attractive and edgy. IMG_7845-1

The shade I got was Punch. The shade look super bright pink with a little glitter if you see from outside the bottle. If you look carefully, you can see blue shimmery glitters in it which makes it very unique and gorgeous. It has a simple, slant applicator which makes it easy to apply. IMG_7927-1IMG_7851-1

When I first applied it on my lips, it felt sticky, but it is not that sticky which will make you feel uncomfortable and it will help to stick the product for long. The gloss will look transparent in first swipe, but you will get a good color after 2-3 swipes. You will actually love the shimmer after you apply this to your lips. I love the effect which it gives to my lips and I think you can wear this almost everyday. Faces did say that it smells vanilla, but to be frank, I did not feel any smell in it which can irritate me.

It stays for a good 3 hours, which include small snacks. After this it calls for reapplication. It does keep my lips hydrated and moisturized and after the gloss fades away, the lips will be soft and moisturized.

Weekly Tip: Day and Night look with Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Turquoise

Weekly Tip: Day and Night look with Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Turquoise

Hi Everyone!

As you all might know that Maybelline has sent me their New Colossal Kohl – Turquoise as a surprise gift.

Ever since Maybelline introduced their Colossal Kajal, I’m a regular user of it and cannot think of stepping out without wearing it. Among all the other Kajal’s available in the market, I found Maybelline colossal Kajal is the best and it has become my necessity now. When I got the Colossal Kohl – Turquoise from Maybelline, I had the same expectation from this and to my surprise, I really like this product. It is smudge free and it got a beautiful turquoise shimmery color with which you can play around. I found this color so summery and you can wear it during the day and at night as well.

I have created two looks using the Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Turquoise. The first one is a day look and the second one is a night look.

First Look

Second Look

Read below to find out how you can create these two looks:

For the first look, start from your outer corner of eyes and draw a line on your lid till the inner corner with the Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Turquoise. Then fill your eyelid with the turquoise Kohl till the upper lash line of your eye as shown in the below picture.

Now, using the same turquoise Kohl, color the outer side of the lower lash line, but only till the middle of it.IMG_5235-1

Taking the Colossal Kajal fill the lower lash line starting from the inner side to the other side using 3-4 strokes so that the Kajal is deep enough to compliment the turquoise color.

With the liner brush, apply your favorite eyeliner very close to your upper lash line. Draw a very thin line of the eye liner and not very thick. This way we can show the turquoise Kohl and also give a Kajal touch to the eyes.

The next step is to curl your eye lash with the eyelash curler. This is a very important step and we should always curl our lashes before using the mascara. This way it gives your lashes a very nice and fuller look. For the final step, use the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum Express mascara which will give the lashes more length and curl. Enjoy your summer day out with this smudge free look.

For the second look which is a night look, start filling the Colossal Kajal from your outer side of your eye from the upper lash line, lid till the crease of your eyes. Do not use too much Kajal, little 3-4 strokes will be enough. Stop when you reach the middle of your eyes.

Now, take your turquoise Kohl and fill the rest of the inner part of your eye from your upper lash line, lid till the crease. Again, do not use too much kohl, 3-4 strokes will be enough. IMG_5323-1(1) IMG_5324-1

For the next step, take your contour blender brush and start blending the whole Kajal and Kohl together with a very light hand. Do not go over your crease, but gently blend the shadow on the crease of your eye. This will give you a very sexy blackish blue shimmery eye shadow look to your eyes till your crease.IMG_5328-1 IMG_5335-1

Then apply a thin line of the eyeliner with the liner brush to the upper lash line and fill your lower lash line with the Colossal Kajal.

For the next step, I’m using an eye shadow close to my skin color from the Revlon Eye Shadow palette and applying it with the mini smudge brush on the brow bone to highlight it. Make sure to blend the eye shadow and the highlighting shadow nicely. The last step will be curling your lashes and applying your mascara. You are ready for your night party look. I have paired this with my red lipstick, but you can also use a light lip color of your choice.
