Hide those Flaws away..

17 Aug

Hello beauties,

It is said that after having a baby your life changes, but i would say that your life changes for good. Its a way God makes you realize the importance of being and having parents and the love we share is incredible.. Well i just loved this sudden transformation from being Jigyasa to Mumma.. love you Nick.. But hmm.. as it is said pregnancy and lactation comes with its own problems.. One of them which i faced badly are the PIMPLES.. eww..!! I had terrible marks on my face and the process of fading is very slow.. Really i cudnt go out with such a spotty face for days and used thousands of concealers to cover them but none of them worked to that desirable extent..

One fine day when i entered the store of MAC , i wanted to buy a peach blush but suddenly that girl in the store applied this concealer on one side of my cheek and wow.! the pimples were almost invisible.. and then i suddenly jumped in to by this product .Check the before and after pictures..

Rosey lipcolor for the summers..

14 Aug

Don’t you love the time when someone special in your life surprises you with beautiful red flowers? Yes, I am talking about roses, my dear hubby just brought some home yesterday! I am crazy about roses, but I think I am much more crazier for my Chambor lip shade in 265 innocent rose

This shade is almost like a color of a deep red rose. Unlike the regular lipsticks, the Chambor lipstick dispenses out of a brush. Initially, my first reaction was that this might more like a lip gloss than a lipstick, but boy was I wrong or what! The lipstick applies like a gloss but instantly transforms into a matte finish. Even though it’s matte, it does not settle down in the lines of my lips, which I love.

Now let me jot down some reasons as to why I love this product so much!

  • To start off, I am addicted to the color PINK! ( I have a huge collection of pinks in my entire makeup box)
  • Definitely try the color on before making a purchase, because it applies differently on different skin tones. 
  • The deep red color matches my complexion and complements my skin tone. 
  • The transformation from gloss to a matte finish. 
  • Great staying power – about 4 to 5 hours.
  • Contains Shea Butter to provide moisture and nourishment to lips. 
  • Price is alright, it costs around Rs. 595

My recommendation is that you all girls should definitely check out the color and think about investing in such a great product for the monsoons! 🙂

LOREAL ABSOLUT REPAIR cellular hair mask review

28 Jul

LOreal-Series-Expert-Absolut-Repair-Cellular-Masque-165172-1298-1Hi girlies!

After a long break, we, the sisters, are back with a bang. Things have changed in each of our lives, so stay tuned as we discuss our personal experiences and share our views on different beauty products.

So, let’s get started..

Today I am going to review one of the most popular hair spa product – the LOREAL ABSOLUT REPAIR cellular lactic acid repairing mask for very damaged hairs. This mask comes from Loreal’s professional hair care range, making this one of the most commonly used salon treatment for extremely dry and damaged hair.  I personally use it in place of my daily conditioner, as it provides heavy conditioning for my hair on a regular basis.

How To Use: 

To begin, shampoo hair and apply mask evenly for 5 minutes depending on the length of the hair. For some days, when my hair are extremely dry, I apply a little to my scalp as well.

Pros:

  • Instantly soften hair
  • Reduces Frizz
  • Has a rich creamy consistency (this can be used to get salon like treatment at home, if applied to roots and lengths and taking steam, or wrapping hot towel wrap afterwards)
  • Provides shine
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Cannot say much about the repair, as these days my hair is falling like hell (maybe because of the hair loss after pregnancy), but even when i have got my hair rebnded the fifth time, the texture of my hairs is still good.

Cons: 

  • Weighs hair down – not a fault of the product, since this mask is meant for professional use or for weekly application.
  • I have to wash my hair on alternate days, else they begin to look greasy.
  • Not available easily

Price:  Rs 900

You Glow, Girl!

20 Sep

Hey there, today i will be telling you, how can you get radiant glowing skin with natural home remedies.. but before using any of the mentioned products do check if you are not allergic to any of such a thing as it is a myth that natural substances dont cause allergies, but the fact is that even natural substances can even cause allergies, so better be aware..!!

1) Honey Facial Mask with Eggs

The honey and the egg mask is beneficial for people who suffer from acne and pimples, as it has anti-bacterial properties to reduce infections. Also, honey is known to be a good cleanser for skin, it dries up impurities leaving skin looking clear and blemish-free. You should also use honey if you have dry skin, as it is very effective at retaining your skin’s moisture, leaving it radian, soft, and supple.

  • Ingredients required: 1 raw egg, 2 tablespoons of honey, and a splash of milk.
  • How to use: separate the egg yolk from the egg white (for people with normal skin to dry skin, use the egg yolk and for people with normal to oily skin, use the egg white). Place the mixture in a bowl and add some honey, along with some milk. Make sure to keep the paste’s consistency thick because if its too liquidy, it might be difficult to apply. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes and wash it away with a cloth soaked in warm water.

2) Turmeric Face Mask 

The Turmeric paste is very common in India, as the powder is readily used in Indian cooking and so forth. But for non-indians, did you know that Indian brides use turmeric paste to instantly exfoliate and brighten their skin tone? Since the ancient times, turmeric is known for its healthy benefits! It is a great anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, so it helps to fight the stubborn blackheads and acne. Also, turmeric helps to slow down the aging process by stimulating your blood flow, which helps your skin to fight formation of wrinkles.

  • Ingredients required: 3-4 tablespoon of Turmeric powder, some water or Almond oil (almond oil will help moisturize your dry skin)
  • How to use: Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and make sure the consistency is thick enough to evenly apply all over your face. Leave it on until it dries (dry not to talk/laugh during the time you have mask on). Wash it away with a towel soaked in warm water.

In this post, I only told you about these two masks because I have tried them myself! And I can tell you for sure that these two masks work very well.. you should atleast do either one of the masks once a month or once in two weeks.

Please let us know what home remedy mask works for you 🙂

The pastels are a must haves… you must have at least one pastel colored outfit to look fashionable and trendy this fall.

So, I am going to leave you guys with some looks for this season!

So here are all the look.. which one is your favorite..? 🙂

Chemically treated hair? Help is here!

15 Sep

Chemically treated hair or colored hair requires a good amount of moisturisation and conditioning.. when i got my hairs chemically straightened i wanted to use the best possible products that may prevent my hairs from falling off and getting dry.. so i asked my hair dresser for the same and then she recommended me this hair mask from Schwarzkopf.. i bought the shampoo too as i wanted to use a complete set of the same brand..the consistency of this mask is thicker than the conditioners (as it is a mask obviously) but unlike the conditioners, i found this mask to be more beneficial to use regularly..

How to use it:

  • Wash hair with shampoo and towel dry.
  • Once the hair dries, apply a very small quantity of this mask at the ends.. (don’t touch the roots or scalp)
  • Leave on for 5 mins and then rinse off with luke warm water till the water runs clear..
  • After towel drying the hair again, apply a good serum to complete the process.
  • If you want to give yourself a hair spa.. this product will be the right product to deliver you the salon like results at home. To do so, after shampooing and towel drying your hair, divide your hair in section and apply the product generously (according to the length of your hair) and let the product soak in for 15 minutes. After, comb your hair using a wide tooth comb, and then steam your hair with a warm towel for about 2-3 times. Finally, wash your hair till the water runs clear.. and this is it.. your at-home hair spa is complete.
  • Just dab on a little serum and enjoy the great texture of your hairs

My Review:

  • After using the product my hair became soft and manageable.. from the very first wash itself, i could see the difference in the texture of my hair.
  • It gave a good volume to my hairs, unlike other hair masks it didn’t weight my hair down.
  • It acted as a very good replacement for my conditioner and now i don’t feel like using a conditioner..(even if it comes far cheaper than this product)
  • Its makes your hair so soft that even after drying out, the hair is tangle free and can be combed easily (even in case the hair is wet and does not have serum)
  • Lastly, it made my hair shiny, silky, and bouncy.

What I didn’t like about the product: 

  • This product does  not protect hair from falling off… 😦
  • Secondly, the price is a little high..
  • Moreover, this product is more effective if applied to towel dried hairs and if you are using it on wet hairs you have to apply an extra quantity of the product..here i find the process a little time consuming as i am always in a rush while taking a bath.
  • Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Recommendation: yes i would definitely recommend it to all those looking out for a good nourishing mask for their chemically treated hair and even if your hair is not chemically treated you can still use it to make your hair soft and silky
  • Price: 680 INR for 200 ml
  • Will I buy it again: Yes definitely and i am buying this product since 3 years already.. 🙂

so here i have told you about one of the best hair products i am using… will be telling about the serum too.. so till then stay tuned..

Love,

Jigyasa
