Comment : A very affordable product. Nice sturdy compact, travel-friendly packaging. I bought the shade Natural. I have wheatish complexion. Blends well with a dewy finish. Gives sheer to medium coverage. However, people with oily skin might want to use powder on top for a matte shine-free look especially during the summer. If you're in a hurry and have got very less time to get ready just go for this bb cream , kohl and some gloss and you're done! SPF is an added advantage.

Comment : This is my most favourite lipstick! As the name suggests, it's matte as hell but not at all drying. Feels creamy on application and sets into a complete matte look. The crayon shape makes it easy to apply. No need for a lip liner. It stays for a long time if you don't eat something oily. Fades away uniformly. It's not completely transfer proof, does transfer a little. Only one disadvantage is it's not retractable, comes with a sharpener which results in a little wastage of the product. Very classy black packaging. Easy to carry in purse. Use a creamy or oil-based remover for removing this lipstick. My favourite shades are Scarlett O'Hara which is a tomato red and Cherry Darling which is a cherry red.

Comment : I was not much of a foundation person before because of the lack of shades available in the market but Maybelline Fit Me has turned me into someone who wears foundation almost everyday! So many shades are available that you can't complain. I bought the shade Sun Beige and it just fits me like second skin. If you have wheatish complexion, just go for this shade. If you got a bit tanned in summer then go for the shade Warm Honey. It blends like dream even just by using my fingers. Doesn't leave a white cast on skin. Sets into a matte finish. However when I used a wet sponge, I got a dewy finish ! So it's that versatile! Beginners can go for this foundation without giving any second thoughts. Very affordable. Packaging is okay ,just lacks a pump dispenser so if you're in a hurry you might pour a lot of it out resulting in wastage. Coverage is medium but it's definitely buildable without becoming cakey. It is runny , liquid in texture which makes it easily blendable. I wore it for 8 hours at the most and had to touch up with powder twice as I have combination skin which becomes very oily during summers and monsoon. Gives a very fresh no make-up kind of look. I'm definitely sticking to this product.

Comment : I have sparse eyebrows which look almost non-existent. So I always have to paint my eyebrows! I used to use a brown/black eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows. I have also used brown gel eyeliner which worked pretty fine for me. When I bought this product I was definitely very excited. I bought the shade grey which is going to suit most Indian skin tones, the other shade (brown) is very light and I think it will suit people with very fair complexion. This is a double ended pencil that has a retractable pencil on one end and a sponge applicator on the other end which has powder in it's cap so every time you close the cap, the sponge is kind of refilled. The pencil is a bit hard and dry and if you press it , it's going to break. So use it carefully. I also feel that the hardness of the pencil makes it smudge free. However it's not totally smudge proof. Stays on for 5-6 hours if you do not sweat a lot. I draw the edges of my eyebrows with the pencil and then fill in with the sponge applicator. It gives a very natural look. However people with thick eyebrows should avoid this as this is not going to help them. Thick eyebrows should go for the pomade crayon instead.

Comment : It's a must try lipstick for matte lipstick lovers. It's so creamy in texture but sets into a perfect matte finish. And it's so light ,feels like nothing. Does not smudge or transfer, does not flake, does not feel dry at all. Smells like cocoa butter. Stays on for a good 5-6 hours if you don't eat or drink anything. Fades away uniformly. I have the shade Prague which is a lovely pink shade that'll suit all skin tones.

Comment : Stay Quirky , a brand known for awesome nail polishes , recently launched lipsticks. And let me tell you they have broken the monotony of pinks, reds and browns by bringing some real badass shades like black, blue, yellow and green. They have reds, browns and pinks too. I had pre-ordered the shades green (Go all the way) and black (Certainly NSFW) and received recently. Even though Stay Quirky says they're matte, they're not so matte. They're quite creamy and moisturising and give a soft matte look. Applying a black lipstick can be quite tricky, but these lipsticks are quite pigmented. These are not transfer proof so you've to be a bit careful. They're priced at just 275 INR so they'll not burn a hole in your pocket. Packaging is quite sturdy and with the matte black case, it looks quite classy. If you're looking for something bold and badass , you can definitely give them a try !!

Comment : This is a tinted moisturizer with sparkles/glitter. Comes in two shades light and dark. Blends well , does not look cakey/ chalky. Oily skinned people might not like it during the summers but it's definitely going to be a favourite in winters for them. This is a lightweight formula which can be worn everyday to college. Doesn't stay for a long time , the tint wears off but the glittery sheen stays. Coverage is sheer.

Subject : Must have ! (Cherry Chic and Cabernet Category)
Comment : I bought two shades of these one is called Cherry Chic and the other is Cabernet Category. First let's talk about the packaging. It comes packed in an outer box. Inside it you'll find a shiny rose gold tube. Packaging is attractive and sturdy as well. The cap shuts with a click. Very convenient to carry in purses without the fear of caps coming off and ruining everything else inside your purse while ruining the lipstick itsef (I have faced this and it's quite ugly !) . So you don't have to worry about that. Second the texture. It's matte but not very drying, not very creamy either but it's not really a problem. I like the texture of it and the smell is chocolaty. The shade Cherry Chic is not at all cherry like I mean it's not red. It's a brownish orange kind of shade which I love wearing to my office. This shade can be the perfect nude for dark skinned beauties with warm undertones. Also this shade reminds me a bit of the Lakme Absolute Matte range's shade called Classic rose except that Classic rose was darker (I might be wrong here). The other shade Cabernet Category is a dark brown color. This shade does not apply very uniformly as it's a bit patchy and streaky owing to it's dark color I guess. Dark shades are a bit tricky to apply. I like the texture , packaging of these lipsticks. Price is also not very high. Staying power is good 4-5 hours without eating or drinking anything. It's not completely transfer proof, does transfer a bit. I would definitely like to try other shades from this range.
Face
Subject : Good but not great.
Comment : The thing about this concealer which disappoints me the most is it's lack of shades unlike the foundation from same range. Even the medium shade is too light for me. I can at the most use it as a highlighter. Now coming to the overall performance. Packaging is travel friendly. It comes in a sleek plastic squarish kind of tube with a cap that has a sponge applicator attached with it just like a liquid lipstick. Pigmentation is okay. Even though it's matte finish, I like to set it with powder to increase the staying power. I would really appreciate if Maybelline came up with more shades of this concealer. Until then I'm going to try something else !

Comment : Let me tell you first thing that waterproof mascaras are great but they're a pain in a** to remove! So I bought the washable variant. The fat tube feels good to hold in hands hehehe ! Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The wand feels luxurious. Does the job of separating lashes quite well which gives an illusion of volume. I'm a sucker for voluminous lashes and this one's going to be favourite for a while ! Even though colored mascaras are quite a fad now a days , I prefer black mascara because of it's wearability . And Maybelline Colossal volume express mascara is of a nice jet black pigment which I absolutely love. If you're confused about which mascara to buy , just go for this one without second thoughts.

Subject : Must try !
Comment : I'm a big fan of kajals . So I decided to give these Sugar cosmetics kajal a try last year. I bought both the shades 'Black Velvet' and 'Still got the blues'. Packaging is attractive as all other sugar products. The outer carton has a geometric mosaic design. Inside it you'll get a retractable pencil. Since it's retractable, there's no hassle of sharpening and no product wastage. It also has a rubber grip which makes it easier to hold while doing elaborate eye makeup ! It is smudge proof and also waterproof and stays for a good 7-8 hours as I used to wear it to office. The pencil is not very soft, it's a little hard and prone to breaking if you apply a little more pressure. But the hardness also makes it smudge proof. It also glides smoothly I don't know how Sugar did this without making the pencil soft! It's perfect for doing graphic designs. Both the shades have excellent pigmentation. The blue one is dark royal blue. The black is of course black ! It's slightly on the pricier side as the quantity is very less but looking at it's packaging and quality, the price is bearable. I would love to try them again and also would love if Sugar launched more colors.

Subject : Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipstick Shade : Cranberry
Comment : Hi ladies ! I'm very happy to be a part of the Eleanor Beauty trial squad . I was sent a lipstick, a blush and an eyeshadow trio. Here I'm going to review the lipstick. I'm a huge lipstick fan and love to try various shades and textures. I received the shade Cranberry which is a beautiful pink with purple undertones. It reminded me of an Oriflame lipstick I had bought years back , the color drop lipstick in shade Glossy Berry (discontinued as far as I know). Eleanor beauty is a Dubai based company and the products are made in Italy. Price : 595 INR for 3.4g of product. Shelf life : 3 years What the package claims : Sheer gloss lip color for plump, shiny and moist lips Application : Glide smoothly over lips for sheer to medium coverage. My experience: First of all I want to talk about the packaging. The lipstick comes in an outer carton which is black and bronzy gold in color. Inside is a shiny black case with a cap that shuts with a click so you don't have to worry about the cap opening by accident inside your purse. Packaging is very classy and elegant and travel-friendly. It's a bullet lipstick with twist mechanism. After using dozens of matte lipstick, this one is a nice break. The coverage is sheer to medium which is clearly mentioned on the outer package. So if you have very pigmented lips , do not expect full coverage. One more thing that I liked about the product is that it's fragrance free which many of you with a sensitive nose might actually love. I personally do not mind my lip products with mild fragrance. Staying power : Stays for a good 3-4 hours without eating or drinking anything. Gives a creamy shine , which looks beautiful and not tacky. The sheen slowly wears off leaving a light stain on lips which I liked. The best part is the hydration. After application, it feels very light and my lips felt hydrated and moisturized even in this harsh winter. This shade will suit fair to medium skintones the best. I loved the product, it's packaging and texture. The pricing is also reasonable if we keep in mind the packaging and quality. I'll definitely love to try other shades from this range.

Subject : Bella Voste Ulti-matte chubby stick - Shade 01 Rose Crush
Comment : Price : 499 INR for 3.8 gm of product. CLAIMS: *Silky and creamy texture *Full coverage with a satin matte finish *Long lasting with rich color payoff my * Preservatives, oil & nano-ingredients free *Dermatologically tested *One stroke application *Perfect adhesion *Color does not bleed on lips *Confirms US and European regulations *Formulated in Italy MY EXPERIENCE: Packaging is very compact and easy to carry. However, I'm a bit worried about the cap opening in my purse. It's a thick stick with twist mechanism which I absolutely adore as you don't have to sharpen it and hence no product wastage. This particular color 'Rose Crush' is a beautiful peach nude which can be worn everyday for a casual look, office, or pair it up with intense smokey eyes for a night out. Suitable for fair to medium complexion. Might appear a bit neon-ish on dusky and dark complexion. I am in love with this particular shade as I find it very difficult to find a perfect nude lipstick. This does not wash out my complexion. It is so smooth in application, I love the feel of it. It is very light on the lips as if you're wearing nothing, I like the formula which is creamy and non-drying . It does not have any artificial fragrance. Settles into a smooth matte finish. Does not appear cakey or flaky even after hours of application. Stays put for 5-6 hours, fades uniformly and slowly after that and even after fading, a beautiful tint stays on the lips. I'm loving this product.

Subject : ELEANOR Powder Blush : Shade B02 Autumn Peach
Comment : Hi friends! Here I am with my verdict on the Eleanor beauty Powder Blush which I received as a part of #trialsquad . So let's see how this fared according to me. This product is made in Italy. Price : 595 INR for 4gm of product. Shelf life : 36 months CLAIMS : Dermatologically tested Smooth natural finish For warm & gentle glow Active ingredients: Dimethicone softens, soothes and protects skin. MY EXPERIENCE: First of all let me tell you that I'm not a very 'blush' kind of person. But as soon as I applied this on my cheeks, I fell in love with it. Now let me tell you about the packaging. It comes in an outer carton/box which is all black and shiny broze just like the lipstick. Front of the box displays the brand name and product name. Back displays information like ingredients list, net wt. , manufacturing date, shelf life etc. Side panels display brand name, bar code and shade code and name. I must say packaging is very elegant and classy and absolutely no-nonsense. Inside is the product in a sleek black shiny plastic case which has a push back button for opening it , now this is very thoughtful I must say because ladies with long nails would know the struggle to open cosmetic cases !! Inside is a mirror, the blush and a small brush. Mirror is very useful for quick touch-ups. The brush is very soft and comes very handy while travelling, however I prefer to use a bigger blush brush otherwise. You can see very tiny shimmer particles on the blush which is not that visible after application. The formula is so pigmented!!! It's so soft and extremely blendable . Does not look chalky or powdery . This particular shade, as the name suggests is peachy and I think I'm going to stick to this for a while. This shade suits my skin tone perfectly. Perfect shade for fair to medium skintones. It does not look tacky and gives a very healthy and warm flush of color to my cheeks. I can ever wear this to office on an everyday basis. Overall I am very happy with this product and would give it a 5 star rating. Priced at 595 INR for 4gms is a bit expensive but I would certainly choose this because of it's formula, beautiful packaging and perfect shade !!

Subject : Eleanor Trio Powder Eyeshadow : Shade E03 Amber
Comment : Hi friends so here's the third product that I received as a part of the Eleanor Beauty trial squad. It's an eyeshadow trio in the shade E03 Amber Price : 695 INR for 4.5 gm of product. Shelf life : 36 months. CLAIMS : Ophthalmologically tested, Luminous pearl finish, Smooth & rich micronized color. MY EXPERIENCE: First of all let's talk about the packaging which is same as the blush except the products inside. It's beautiful, elegant, sleek and travel-friendly. Comes in an outer box which is black and bronze. Front and side panels display brand name, shade etc. back panel displays information like ingredients, manufacturing date, shelf life etc. Inside is again a same shiny black plastic case like the blush. It comes with a mirror, three eyeshadow shades and two double-ended sponge applicators. The shade bronze glow is a beautiful blackish bronze glittery shade which can be used to create smokey eyes. Use it wet for intense pigmentation. The shade copper is a matte brown shade which is a good transition color to be used on the crease. (Can be used as a contour shade for cheeks and nose in case if an emergency ;) ) The shade Gold Dust is a beautiful shimmery gold which can be used in the inner corner and brow bones for highlights. ( I even tried in on my cheeks and it looked beautiful) . The colors are quite pigmented and blendable. It's a perfect trio with a dark shade, a transition shade and a highlight shade. Both day time and night time looks can be created with this trio, very versatile. I think I'm going to carry this during all my future traveling. Staying power is average 4-5 hours after that fades slightly, could stay longer with proper priming. All in all I would rate it 4.5 out of 5. The only con is the price which is a bit expensive keeping in mind that by adding 100-200 bucks extra you can get a full palette of eyeshadow.
Lips
Subject : I woke up like this-3
Comment : Hey friends! This is my first liquid lipstick from this brand Stay Quirky. I love the quirky packaging. It comes in a cardboard box which has a story printed on it and it's interesting. Coming to the shade , it's a lovely pinkish brown nude which will look awesome on medium skin tone. This is not a brown colour it just has a brown tinge to it. Formula is amazing, dries into a smudge proof, transfer proof finish which is long lasting and not too drying. The applicator is small which is quite convenient and it's a doe foot shaped which helps in precise application. Lasts for almost 6-8 hours without flaking. You need an oil based remover to remove it. Formula is comfortable, not too drying or tugging. However you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before application as this is a matte lipstick. This particular shade is very versatile as you can wear it during day time while going to college or office or you can pair it up with intense smokey eyes for a party look. Price is very affordable . Definitely it's a hit with college goers. Available on discount on Purplle. Definitely a must have for matte lipstick lovers.

Sheet Masks
Subject : NA
Comment : I had received this mask in one of my beauty subscription boxes. The unique name attracted my attention ! Basically it's a sheet mask that not only fits your face but also neck area which is one of the most neglected areas. We often forget to take care of our neck which results in sagging skin. This mask is drenched in multi-benefit serum but let me tell you it's not at all sticky like many other sheet masks. It also contains an extra sachet of serum which is meant to be applied after removing the mask. My experience: After removing the mask , my skin immediately felt bright , well hydrated and plump. I felt as if I had just woken up from a 10 hour sleep !! I had a little bit of tan on my face which also seemed to disappear. My skin felt taut and glowing. I'm definitely going to use this again and I'll recommend everyone to try this once. Instead of spending thousands of bucks at salons and spas , this little treatment at home is quite pocket-friendly !
Gel
Subject : NA
Comment : Patanjali Aloe Vera gel is one of most multi-tasking product out there ! And it's very cheap too. Use it as a moisturizer for oily/combination skin , use it as a soothing gel over sunburnt skin, use it in face packs or hair packs. And let me give you a little hack : use this as a make-up primer for hot and humid days. Thank me later !! This is a must have product for me.
Serums
Subject : Good serum for oily/combination skin
Comment : Oriflame oxygen boost serum is a light, non-greasy serum that gets absorbed into skin without forming any oily layer. It has got gel like texture. It's absolutely colourless, transparent and has got very mild fragrance which does not linger on for long. As I have combination skin , I like the feel of it. I haven't used it long enough to see any remarkable changes. But my skin does feel fresh after applying this. It imparts a slight glow to the skin as well. I don't think it's meant for people with dry skin but oily/combination skinned beauties can definitely give it a try.
Masque
Subject : Marvellous!!
Comment : I bought this sleeping mask last winter when I was having a few issues with my skin. Let's talk about the packaging. It's a heavy glass jar which is not at all convenient for travelling as you'll always be worried about it breaking. It has got a plastic screw top and comes with a spatula for taking out the product. I like the spatula thing as it's hygienic and also the texture of this mask is as such you can't just take it out with your fingers. It's white in color with a very interesting texture. It's called memory shape texture. It's gel like and takes back it's smooth shape as you scoop out the product. So every time you use it, it feels like scooping out from a new jar. It's not very oily. However using it during humid weather gave me one or two breakouts. How to use : Cleanse your face, apply toner then lightly massage this mask directly or you can use a serum or moisturizer if you have extremely dry skin. I use a serum before applying it during the winters. It takes 10-15 minutes to completely sink into the skin and leaves a slightly oily sheen. However in the morning you'll wake up with a fresh face and plump and taut skin. It's slightly expensive but one jar is going to last a long time as you need only a little bit of the product. Good for wrinkles but I couldn't see any changes in my pore size.

Subject : Worth a try
Comment : Hi folks! So I am going to review this product from 'Aaranyaa' called Anti-bacterial tea tree face wash that is also sulphate free. Let me first tell a few things about sulphate. Most cleaning or rather 'lathering' products contain sulphate which is listed as SLS or SLES in the ingredients list. SLS and SLES can irritate eyes, skin, and lungs, especially with long-term use. Products with sulphates that get washed down the drain may also be toxic to aquatic animals. Many products with sulphates are tested on animals to measure the level of irritation to people’s skin, lungs, and eyes. So we now know that sulphate-free means good. Now let's come to the product. 1. Price- 195/- INR for 110 ml tube. 2. Packaging- Comes in a translucent plastic tube with a flip top cap . The cap is tight so no fear of accidental spills. Travel-friendly packaging. 3. Texture- It's a clear, transparent gel-like liquid which is neither too thick nor too runny. 4. Smell- Smells very natural (contains essential oils of lavender and rosemary). Smell does not linger for a long time. I found the smell to be quite refreshing. It's meant for normal to dry skin . You will need only 2-3 drops to create a rich lather so it's going to last for a long time, a value fir money product.( Being sulphate free does not mean it's non-lathering. ) Does the job of cleansing the face very well. I have a 9-5 job and have to go out daily and you all know how much pollution we have to face. So after washing my face with this cleanser, I feel my skin is very well cleaned and very fresh. Does not dry the skin at all. Infact after washing my face , my skin feels very smooth and soft to touch and there's a slight glow. I'll definitely suggest this face wash for dry skinned beauties. But as it contains extracts of tea-tree and claims to be anti-bacterial , I think this is going to suit girls with acne-prone skin too. I have used this product only for a few days. I'll update if I face any issues later. Till then bye , take care!!

Subject : Review on VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Fcae Wash
Comment : Hi there! Not that I believe in 'whitening' qualities of the so-called whitening products because I believe you cannot change the colour you're born with and you must learn to love it. But this face wash sweeped me off my feet because it leaves a smooth soft feeling on my face after washing. Is not drying at all. The texture is a bit runny. I like it's fragrance too. It does the job of cleaning my skin quite well without drying and also helps prevent tan (mild).It certainly brightens up the complexion if that's what the 'whitening' part is meant for. I am so impressed with this face wash that I bought a second tube of it.
Body Oil
Subject : Soulflower grapeseed oil
Comment : Hello beauties !! Today I am going to review this amazing oil from Soulflower. Being a combination skinned person who breaks out often , I was eternally scared of any kind of oils. But recently there has been a widespread fad about facial oils. So I did my research and found out that Grapeseed oil was my oil !! Let's see a few skin benefits of this oil. First, it is much lighter than jojoba oil or coconut oil. Second, it has a great amount of vitamin E, about twice as much as olive oil! It also helps in controlling acne, erasing acne scars and unclogging pores. The Soulflower coldpressed grapeseed oil comes in a glass bottle with a spray nozzle attachment. However, I would prefer a dropper which gives better control. Priced at 350 INR for 30ml , it's going to last me for a long time. It's a carrier oil so you can use it directly on skin and hair. This oil has no smell. It's very light and gets readily absorbed into skin. I like to mix a few drops of neem oil with it and apply and leave overnight. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is incredibly soft, smooth and very refreshed. It does not make my skin oily or greasy. It has helped with my acne too. My acne scars have lightened a bit after using it for about 10 days. It has also helped clearing my whiteheads. My pores seem tightened too. I also used it as a makeup primer and trust me my foundation blended like dream and my makeup lasted without my skin getting oily! Grapeseed oil is also good for hair. It helps in strengthening hair and gives it a nice gloss. After shampooing apply a few drops of this oil as a serum on towel dried hair. This will leave hair shiny and soft. However if you have very oily scalp, this might not work. I would totally give this a five star. I have replaced my serum, night cream and makeup primer with this. I don't know whether this will work in humid weather but till then I'm loving it !!!??
Sheet Masks
Subject : Mondsub Silk Collagen Mask
Comment : Hey guys!!! Today I'm going to review another product which was sent to me by Glamrada as a part of their trial box. This is a facial sheet mask by Mondsub which is now quite a known name for sheet masks . This one is from the Collagen silk mask series. CLAIMS: Anti-wrinkle, Moisturising, Brightening. PRICE: INR 200 each. MY TAKE: Let me first tell you that I have a combination skin that gets very oily in humid weather and becomes a little dry during winters. I also have occasional breakouts. I used this mask last night before going to bed. This mask definitely brightens up the face, it's quite visible. It moisturised my skin without making it excessive oily. I could even see a reduction in pore size temporarily. After removing the mask tap the excess serum into the skin and do not forget to rinse your face after that ,girls, otherwise your face will be a sticky mess. So after I rinsed my face with water, my face felt incredibly soft, looked quite smooth and bright. I just applied aloe vera gel after that and slept. Next morning I woke up with a bright, soft, smooth and glowing face that lasted for the whole day. I also felt that my tan was lightened a bit. I didn't even wear makeup as I wanted to flaunt my bare skin ( not without sunscreen of course!). I can't tell about the effects that how long they last but as is my experience with other sheet masks , they're temporary and last for 2-3 days. You can use this mask before any special occasion for that party glow. All in all I loved the experience and the price factor is okay, could've been a little cheaper as mask sheets costing 100-150 are also available. The smell is a bit bothering as it smells quite chemical. I would give this a four star. And I would like to use it once more to be sure of the effects :)
Hair Mask / Hair Spa
Subject : NA
Comment : Hi there ! So I'm here today with another review of the second product received in my trial box from glamrada. I know I am a bit late in writing the review but I like to take my time and test the product properly before giving my opinion. So I use this product for two weeks and here is what I think about this. First of all let me tell you that I have a very oily scalp but the ends of my hair are dry. I have to shampoo my hair every other day in summer. This product claims: This unique blend of argan oil and traditional Indian Herbs is a boon for frizzy, tangled and dull hair. This hair pack makes hair shiny and silky like a feather. Directions for use: Use Aaranyaa Hair Pack at least three times a week. After cleansing your hair, take Aaranyaa hair pack onto your palm and apply/massage gently onto full hair length and scalp, avoiding the eyes. Allow pack to penetrate the hair and scalp skin for 10-15 minutes to nourish hair and scalp. Rinse thoroughly till water runs clear. For best result, use shampoo before applying hair pack. My take: Since I have an oily scalp I avoid applying anything on my scalp and buy anything I specifically mean conditioners. But this product does not claim to be a conditional this says that it is a hair pack so I decided to try it on my scalp as well. The day I used it , my hair felt soft, shiny and my scalp didn't feel very oily but the next day my scalp was as usual oily so I'm not going to use this on my scalp. Or as an alternative you can first use this pack and then wash with a mild shampoo. I used this thrice a week and did not use any other conditioner or serum. The result was quite impressive. This product is natural , paraben free, sulphate free and silicone free so it might not give you miraculous results in just one use but use it for a few times and you'll definitely see the difference. Those who have dry scalp would love this. It helps control frizz and makes hair soft and manageable. You can skip on conditioner if you're using this thrice a week as mentioned on the tube. Fragrance is very mild , not very bothering and does not stay for long. Overall I would give this a 4.5 ???? .

Subject : Organic goodness
Comment : Received this product as a part of the trial box and have been hooked since then. Price: M.R.P. Rs. 199 for 100gm of product. Claims: 100% natural powder 100% pure No added chemicals 100% Bio When I was a teenager, I was a DIY freak. I used to make scrubs and pastes and what not using only 100% natural ingredients. My mom and grandma always inspired me to use natural skincare and haircare products. So I remember my grandma using Hibiscus leaves paste mixed with other things as a hair pack. Please note that Hibiscus leaves are used in haircare and the flower is used in skincare. This is a Hibiscus flower powder so it can be used as a face pack. Hibiscus is rich in anti-oxidants that help in reversing the damage caused by UV rays, dust, pollutants, and diseases, etc. on your skin. Hibiscus has natural surfactants known as saponins that can cleanse your skin in a natural way. The natural saponins and organic acid in Hibiscus promote not only cleansing but also shedding of dead skin cells. Therefore, it can be safely used as a natural cleanser and an exfoliant. Mix a little powder with rose water for oily skin and with milk for dry skin and apply on face leave on for 5-10 minutes and wash off massaging in circular motion. Leaves your skin fresh,clean and soft. However if you have sensitive skin it is my request please do a patch test prior to application as Hibiscus can irritate sensitive skin. In today's modern apartment lifestyle, I think getting a 100% natural product out of a packet is quite convenient. I like this product but I have to use it for a little bit longer to see the full benefits. Thank you Glamrada for sending this to me.

Subject : Had me hooked
Comment : Hi friends ! So here I am reviewing the seer secrets lemongrass green tea sent to me as a part of the trial box. Let me tell you guys that I was not a very big fan of green tea because I felt that green tea is practically tasteless. But this particular tea had me hooked to it !! The flavour of lemongrass is very calming and soothing. Lemongrass is good for digestion, full of antioxidants , good for skin and hair and a number of other benefits. Hence this combination of green tea with lemongrass makes this a very good way to start your day. In order to prepare the tea you need to boil some water and add a few pellets like if you are preparing one cup tea then just add 2- 3 pellets and let it brew for few minutes and it's done. Very small quantity is needed so it lasts a long time. I'm very happy to have got this for trial. Those who are trying to lose weight and get fit , this is a smart option as it helps you lose weight by boosting metabolism. Of course consuming just this tea will not make you lose weight , of course you will have to follow a balanced diet and a light exercise regimen. I give this a 5 ????

Comment : Hi friends! Today I am going to review the seer seceets peppermint green tea that I received as a part of the trial box. Peppermint tea has a number of benefits as it has the ability to improve digestion, reduce pain and inflammation. It relaxes the body and mind, cures bad breath, aids in weight loss and boosts the immune system. It also has a cooling effect which calms and soothes the mind. It's a great way to start your day. If you're trying to follow a healthy lifestyle, green tea is an integral part of it as it's rich in antioxidants and boosts your metabolism. I loved this tea and would give this a 5 ????.
