Happy Kati Bihu peeps! I hope you all are doing well. Hair fall is a serious issue and growing them back is yet another issue of its own. So, if you haven't heard of the Satthwa Premium Hair Oil till now, then here's a review about the premium oil which has the power of 9 !

PRICE: Rs.599 for 100 ml

INGRDIENTS: 

Almond oil, castor oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, emu oil, amla oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, olive oil


PACKAGING:

This oil comes in a white plastic bottle with flip open cap. It has all the ingredients and directions mentioned on the bottle.









COLOR & CONSISTENCY:

This oil is yellowish-golden in color and the consistency is quite runny. It absorbs easily onto your scalp and has a mild fragrance

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT:




My hair is not in a good phase due to pollution and heat. It has dry ends and whenever I wash my hair without oiling them, it becomes a frizzy mess. So, when this product was sent to me, I used it overnight and washed my hair the next day. It worked. My hair felt less frizzy and my hair fall reduced as well on the first application. So, instead of using it twice a week, I thought about trying it for like thrice a week. I'd recommend you to use it overnight and wash it off the next day, you'll definitely see good results after using it.

Since it contains a great natural mix, it moisturizes your scalp as well as your dry ends.

I don't have grey hair so I can't comment on the claim that it slows premature greying. But I definitely agree with the claims that it promotes hair growth, prevents dandruff and stops hair fall.

Fun Fact: Use this oil as an eyebrow growth serum daily, it promotes hair growth there as well


PROS:

  • Paraben Free
  • Controls Hair fall
  • Prevents Dandruff
  • Promotes Hair growth
  • Moisturizes scalp as well as hair
  • Absorbs quickly

CONS:

  • Availability
  • Bit Pricey

Ryaal Organic Shea Butter Review

9/23/2017 05:45:00 pm 4 Comments
Hello everybody, have you read my Ryaal Essentials Organic Argan Oil review? If you have, then you must have known how much I love this oil for my hair and brows.

Today, I'm back with yet another review from the same brand Ryaal Essentials.  They have launched quite a few new products on amazon, which you can get from here







PRICE: Rs.208 + Rs.50 Shipping for 150 gm

The jar is quite heavy and sturdy. It contains 150 gm of the product which is a good quantity for Rs.208 






CONSISTENCY:

This consistency is very thick and takes few minutes to totally absorb into your skin. If you apply it directly onto your skin, then it may appear a little sticky at the beginning but after few minutes it gets absorbed and your skin feels so soft and moisturized.



MY THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:



Shea butter can be used in preparing body butters, lip balm, hair mask, face cream, etc. Its very useful and healthy for the skin. 

This Shea butter can be used alone and also can be mixed with your desired ingredients to make your own product. I've used it alone on my face as well as my hands and elbows. It makes your skin so soft and moisturizes it too. I prefer using it on alone while sleeping, so when I wake up, I get well moisturize skin.

It is Cruelty free as well and known for reducing skin irritation and evens out skin tone & wrinkles. It is non comedogenic so it can be used on sensitive skin or acne prone skin.

PROS:

  • Very Moisturizing 
  • Helps to prevent wrinkles

I found my skin to have an extra glow which usually the strobe creams give. My skin felt tightened and my whole face felt to be soft and supple.

I love the concept of this mask. It has a unique gel-like consistency that gets thinner with the increase in absorption rate.

This mask contains:

  • Glycerin which moisturizes the skin.
  • Collagen which in giving our skin strength and elasticity and also replaces dead skin cells.
  • Licorice which has skin lightening effect. 
  • Scutellaria baicalensis (Common Name: Skullcap), which has been used for treatment of inflammation
  • Trehalose which is used to prevent moisure loss.
  • Rose extract, which has anti-bacterial , anti-inflammatory, (etc) properties.
  • Hyaluronic acid  which keeps collagen synthesis up, as well as retaining skin moisture, contributing to the anti-aging benefits to the skin.
  • Glyceryl Stearate, which is a lubricant and helps in smootening and softening the skin

I've applied this mask for 20 minutes and then I've rubbed the excess serum on my skin. It gave an instant glow which lasted for the whole day. It does brighten up the skin and gives a 'glow from within' kinda look. It provides decent moisture. This mask is very travel friendly and I would recommend it to everyone.

Instagram Makeup Shopping 101| Tips | Tricks | Experience

8/22/2017 07:30:00 pm 2 Comments

Hello everybody! I hope you all are doing well.





Instagram stores are very popular now-a-days, be it for clothing, makeup, jewellery, everything! There are lots and lots of ‘intsa-seller’ and it makes it difficult for consumers like us to take the right decision. So you must also keep in mind some few basic points before buying something from an instagram seller.


  •        Look at number of followers they have. It’s preferable that you go for pages that have more than a 1000 followers. But also keep in mind that followers can be bought online as well.
  •          Take a look at their tagged pictures. If you get to see lots of images of other customers, try going through as many posts as possible. You’ll get to know ‘bout the page’s response and the customer’s opinion as well.
  •        Go for pages of your city. They might provide you COD and free shipping.
           For Example: I live in Guwahati, so I opt for a page which is based in Guwahati. They offered me COD, next day delivery and also free shipping. So it’s very convenient for me to order through them and I had a safe experience as well.

  •       Try looking through all the posts and comments. Look at the prices and compare their prices with different pages. For Example: If one seller is selling a product for say Rs.300 and the same product is being sold for Rs.250 at another seller, then try opting for the second seller. But make sure to apply the first two steps in the second seller.




  •          Don’t be fooled by ‘less priced’ products.
  •        There are many pages that seller fake ABH palettes, MAC lipsticks, etc. So if they are being labelled as ‘first copies’ and the seller tells you that they are selling real products, don’t be fooled by it.
  •    If you pay by using paytm or bank transfer, make sure to immediately tell the seller through call or text.
  •       If your seller tells you that your product has been dispatched, make sure to ask them the tracking ID or link. It makes it easily for you to know where your product is being located.
  •         NEVER FORGET to screenshot every message that you receive from your seller on instagram. Save them as proofs and also don’t forget to screenshot your transactions and keep all the details.
  •         Lastly, go for pages that are recommended by everyone and have genuine records


So guys, this are all the tips that I’ve put together from my experience from instagram sellers. 
If you want to share your own opinion on it, please do write back to me at the comments section below.

FREEDOM Pro Contour Kit (Medium 02) REVIEW

8/19/2017 12:59:00 pm 0 Comments
Hello everybody, I've had this product since the last few months. I was trying it out and wanted to give a detailed review 'bout this contour kit.



ABOUT THE BRAND:

Freedom is the sister brand of Makeup Revolution which is owned by Tam Beauty. It is a pro range of makeup but very inexpensive

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

PRO Contour Kit. Contour like a PRO, with our kits.
Containing the perfect 2 shades to contour and sculpt the face. Available in 3 shade formats.






PRICE: Rs. 795







 INGREDIENTS:




PACKAGING: 

The packaging is so sleek and classy. Its very compact and totally sturdy. The size is small. It has a good quality mirror as well.
It contains a highlighter and a contour powder.








PIGMENTATION & CONSISTENCY:

The pigmentation is to die for. Its very pigmented and its finely milt as well. Both the shades are super pigmented and very smooth and blend-able.

SHADES:


This kit contains a contour powder and a highlighting shade. Both of them are super matte and doesn't have a hint of shimmer. The highlighing shade is too dark for me so I use it to slightly contour my nose or even use it as an eyeshadow. The contour shade has slight red undertones so you can even use it as a bronzer and also as an eyeshadow.




 MY THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:


This is a beautiful contour kit and very matte. The highlighting shade is too dark for my skintone to use it as an highlighter and its matte so people who have two shades darker than my skintone can use to set the under-eyes. The contour shade is very pretty and its super blend-able. It is powdery and has fallout but that also means that it is blend-able and trust me it is easily blends.

I just wished it came with a brush as well then it would have been a travel friendly product. But since this is a Pro range so it justifies why it does not come with its own applicator as makeup artists uses their own brushes instead of applicators. The contour shade has a smaller pan which I wished it was of the bigger pan.


PROS:

  • Always on discount
  • Contains a contour & a highlighting shade
  • Very pigmented
  • Easily blends
  • Contains a good quality mirror
  • Compact Packaging

CONS:

  • Contains Parabens
  • Highlighting shade is darker for my skin-tone

RATINGS: 4/5
