Get Soft And Smooth Lips Naturally


Hello everyone!
Today, I am posting about natural ingredients which make lips soft, smooth and very attractive. These can be easily found in your home and you don't have to use money for purchasing a lip balm because these natural ingredients will not let you feel the need of any lip balm.


i) Exfoliate :- Exfoliation is the first step for making lips soft and smooth. Exfoliation clears all the dead skin present on the the lips and makes it soft. Exfoliating your lips is very simple as you don't have to use any specific lip scrubber, all you need is a toothbrush. Just take a toothbrush and lightly brush your lips in circular motion, it will remove out all the dead cells present on the lips. After exfoliating apply olive oil or butter on your lips. You can also make a scrub by mixing brown sugar or simple sugar with olive oil and than massage your lips with this mixture, your lips will  instantly start glowing and will become really very soft and smooth.

ii) Honey and Petroleum Jelly :- Mix half tsp of honey with half tsp petroleum jelly and apply it on your lips for 20 minutes. This concoction cures chapped lips of third degree and is very very effective.

iii) Oil in Navel :- Take a little bit of olive oil or any oil of your choice on the tip of your finger and just put that oil into your navel and do it regularly. It is a natural remedy widely used in India for curing dry and chapped lips since ancient times. It is the most simplest and easiest remedy.

iv) Drink lots of water :- Drink lots of water for making your lips soft and smooth. Dehydration is one of the major causes of dry and chapped lip for many people, drinking plenty of water is very beneficial in combating this problem.

v) Coconut Oil :- You ca use coconut oil for curing dry and chapped lips, just apply coconut oil on your lips and leave it , do it regularly , you will start seeing results within a day itself.

Some Important Tips :-

  •  Do the above procedures before going to bed as it give your lips time  to soak moisture while you sleep, you will wake up with wonderful soft and smooth lips.
  •  You can also use this remedies for your hands, elbows, feet or any other part of your body.
  •  If your lips are extremely dry, it can be difficult to use these remedies for the first time so just leave on a thick layer of vaseline on your lips as it will  ensure that your lips are softened enough for the next procedures.

Dove Clear Touch Anti White Marks Deodorant Review


Hello everyone!
Today I am reviewing Dove Clear Anti White marks Deodorant. I saw it on the shelf of departmental store but I don't know why but I picked it up and purchase it instantly maybe the anti white marks thing attracted me. Dove has launched a lot more variants in their deodorant range. But this was the only deodorant which was available in the store.

                                            Dove Clear Touch Anti White Marks Deodorant

Price :- Rs. 160 for 100 g/169 ml

Ingredients :-
Butane, isobutane , propane , cyclopentasiloxane , aluminium chlorohydrate , PPG-14 Butyl Ether , C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate , fragrance , disteardimonium hectorite , octyldodecanol , helianthus annus ( sunflower ) seed oil, BHT, dimethiconol , tocopheryl acetate.

What the company claims :-
The beautiful thing about this deodorant is 48 hr protection. 48 hr protection? Definitely, staying on your skin not your clothes to reduce white marks. That too, But it's the only deodorant with dove's 1/4 moisturizing cream containing vitamins E & F : the beauty ingredient proven to improve the look and feel of the underarm skin. It's great for taking care of your skin after shaving, leaving underarms soft an smooth. And with less worry about wearing that little black dress. Effective Protection, Beautiful Result.

Directions to use :-
shake well before use. Hold can 15 cm from underarm and spray. Do not apply to broken or sore skin. Stop use if irritation develops. Do not spray near face or eyes.


Packaging :-
It comes in a white container with a silver cap. There is a slight sea greenish kind of shading in the middle and like most of the deodrants it is a spray bottle which sprays out adequate amount of product and is very 
                                          .

Likes :-

- Light on skin
- Does live up to it's claim 
- Does not leave white marks
- Nice packaging
- Very affordable and easily available
- Travel friendly and convenient to use


Dislikes :-
- Smell is very irritating
- Doesn't offer enough anti-perspirant protection for me

This is a nice product from Dove as it does live up to it's claim and doesn't leave any kind of white marks or oily residue. The thing which I don't like about this deodorant is that it smells like hairspray, I mean I really don't like it's smell and I often get headaches after using this deodorant so that is one of the biggest problem for me to use this deo. It contains 1/4 moisturizing cream and you can feel the moisturizer when you apply it on your body by touching on the sprayed part.

It is easily available and is very affordable for Rs. 160 for 169 ml. Packaging is very sturdy and travel friendly. I sweat a lot and this deo doesn't provides me enough anti perspiration protection. But anyways for the good part of it will give it 3 thumbs up. :)

Conditioner helps in making hair soft and smooth. You can also use use natural conditioners like lemon, yogurt etc but during winters you can suffer from cough and cold after using it because these thing have cooling properties which may increase the cough in you head during winters so applying conditioner,avocado mask,egg pack is a solution for it. 
  4. Be natural :- Avoid blow-drying, coloring and ironing as far as possible.
  5. Avocado Mask :- Peel and mash a ripe avocado until it gains a creamy texture , mix it with and egg yolk with 2 tsp of olive oil. Massage this mixture on your hair and and wear a shower cap, leave it for one hour than rinse it and normally shampoo your hair and condition it.

POND'S PURE WHITE DEEP CLEANSING FACIAL FOAM REVIEW


Hello everyone!
Today ,I am reviewing Pond's pure white facial foam. This is a facial foaming face wash like most of pond's face washes and the main point about this facial foam is that it contains activated carbon. Activated carbon is basically used in purifying materials and water. Pond's took this idea and included this cleansing ingredient in it's face wash.
Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam 

Price:- Rs. 85 for 50 gm

Ingredients:-
myristic acid,glycerin,water propylene glycol , potassium hydroxide , palmatic acid & stearic acid , decyl glucoside , lauric acid , glycol distearate , glyceryl stearate , polyquatrenium 7 , DmDm hydantoin &iodoproppynyl , butylcarbamate , niacinamide , charcoal powder , carbon , perfume , disodium edta.

What the company claims :-
  • Formulated with activated carbon this face wash with black activated carbon helps absorb and lift away the black dirt and impurities from skin surface and deep within pores . Helping to reduce the cause of blemish to help reveal your natural pure white looking skin.
  • Contains activated carbon
  • Easily absorbs and lift away the black impurities
  • Helps to reduce the causes of blemishes
How to use :-
wet your face, foam the cleanser , apply to face with gentle massage , and than rinse off.

Packaging :- 
It comes in a black colored with a flip cap like most of pond's products.

Likes :-
- Contains activated carbon
- Packaging is nice
- Very affordable
- Available everywhere
- Cleanses really very well
- Travel-friendly
- Only a pea sized amount is required for washing face
- Didn't broke me out
- Fragrance is fine and very non-irritating

Dislikes:-
- Rips out moisture from face


                                                           OVERALL VERDICT
It is a one of the best products of pond's because the way it cleanses your face is amazing. Like when you will apply you toner than you will not see a single hint of dirt or impurity on your cotton ball. When I applied my lotus basiltone toner ( review here ) on my face and when I saw my cotton it was totally clean like totally white. I was totally amazed that this product is so so good. Due to the activated carbon this facial foam rips out all the impurities from your face as you can see in the above picture that it is a grey colored ,thick textured cream like cleanser and it's color is grey due to the charcoal powder and activated carbon. Only a pea sized amount is needed and it will make a lot of foam which will cover all of your face but one drawback of this face wash is this that it rips of moisture from your face you will feel like that your skin have become so dry.
 But there is a solution of that you can apply a good moisturizer but dry skin type people should not use this facial foam as it will make their skin more dry.  Anyways, I don't care that it makes my skin  dry because I apply moisturizer after it so for such cleansing property I will definitely buy it again.

RECOMMENDATION :- Yes , but  recommend it to only oily to combination skin type people.

Will I repurchase it? :- Yes , it  is an amazing product from pond's and I will definitely buy it again.

RATING :- 4.5/5

So, this was my review of Pond's Pure White Deep Facial Foam for more upcoming review, STAY CONNECTED.

Hello everyone!
Today I am reviewing Elle 18 Eye Liner. As I have reviewed a lipstick from elle 18 earlier which is here.
Elle 18 Black Out Eye Liner
Price :- Rs. 65 for 5 ml

What the company claims :-
Nothing is claimed by the company nor the ingredient list is available. The only thing which is written is that it contains rose water and nothing else.

Packaging :-
It has a glass pot packaging with a screw cap what I like about the packaging is the picture of the girl on the cap otherwise nothing is nice about this eyeliner.


Likes :-
- Very cheap
- Dries very faster

Dislikes :-
- It is a very watery kind of eye liner
- Application is very rough and is not smooth
- After 1 hour of application a lot of creasing can be seen
- Staying power is very less
- It's water-resistant but not waterproof
swatch

                                                                      OVERALL VERDICT
This is a very mediocre product. I don't even like the applicator as, it is very tough for me to apply a nice coat of eye liner. personally one more thing which I liked about it was that it is very very cheap like just Rs. 65 for 5 ml I mean really very cheap anyways the pigmentation is fine and it dries off very quickly too which is the good part but it has bad sides more than the good sides as it is not water proof and not even water resistant just a tiny drop of water can spoil your whole eyeliner which is very disappointing . Just a cheap product from elle 18 that's it.

RECOMMENDATION :- I will only recommend it to those people who want a cheap water based eye liner otherwise I don't recommend it to anyone.

Will I repurchase it again? :- No, never, I am never going to purchase it again.

RATING :- 2/5

So, this was my review on Elle 18 black out eye liner, for more upcoming reviews STAY CONNECTED.

Today I am posting about amazing health benefits of Amla which is also known as Indian Gooseberry. It has been used since ages for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I, myself have ate amla a lot in my childhood days and now also try to eat one amla everyday but that is not possible because amla is available only during a limited period in a year. But various brands of amla juice are available in the market like Patanajali , vitro natural etc. Many studies and researches have proved that Indian gooseberry juice or the fruit itself is really very effective in curing many diseases, so instead of consuming antibiotics and other medicines you can use amla or amla juice for curing those diseases. So coming to the main point benefits of amla are :-

  • Amla juice contains a whole lot of vitamin C in it. It has vitamin C 20 times more than orange juice or any other fruit containing vitamin C.
  • Amla is really useful for hairgrowth, if you drink amla juice everyday than your hair will start growing very fast and your hair will become really strong and any kind of damaged hair can be repaired by using amla. Amla hair oil is also really popular among people for hair growth.
  • It is useful in heart problems too , it provides strength to the heart muscles so that your heart becomes strong.
  • It increases metabolism rate, so the body is able to burn more calories and fat present in the body leading to a very nice figure.
  • Amla juice mixed with honey and a little bit turmeric powder helps in controlling diabetes.
  • Amla stimulates bowel movements and cures constipation.
  • It is also very helpful in curing asthama, cold , allegies and tuberculosis too.
  • If you are having an eye problem just drink fresh amla juice every morning your spectacles power will start decreasing and soon after some months you will not need to wear spectacles at all.
  • It works wonders for acne and pimples if you apply paste of amla on you face for 20 minutes everyday you will never have a problem of acne.
  • It also alleviates the problem of burning urination and makes the reproductive organ strong. It improves fertility of both men and women. But pregnant ladies should not drink amla juice.
  • It is an anti-oxidant and contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like calcium, carotene, phosphorous, Iron and vitamin B.
  • For making your hair strong and beautiful make a paste of amla powder with lemon juice and apply it on the scalp and hair and leave it for 5 minutes and than massage it on the scalp and hair for 10 minutes and wash with warm water. It makes the hair strong from roots, prevents hair fall and gives a natural shine and glow to hair.
  • Amla is also an anti-ageing fruit. if you drink 1 tsp of amla juice with warm water every morning with empty stomach you will never have wrinkles on your face I can't say that you will always look young but you will definitely look 10 years younger than your real age.
There are many more attributes and assets of amla which can't be described on a page but these are some well known and tested benefits of amla. This was my article on health and beauty related benefits of amla ( Indian Gooseberry), for more upcoming articles related to health STAY CONNECTED.

It comes in a transparent slant tube packaging with a transparent screw cap. You can easily see the color of product through the tube and the quantity left in it but due the slant tube it is a little bit difficult for me to apply the gloss.

Strawberry flavor

Likes :-
- Cheap and affordable
- Has a nice sheen
- Nice flavor

Dislikes :-
- very bad pigmentation
- Feels really heavy on lips
- Really very sticky
- Packaging is very cheap 
- Ingredient list is not available
- Lack of shades available in this range
- Transfers on face easily spoiling your look
- Not apt for pigmented lips



                                                       OVERALL VERDICT
It is a very mediocre product from Lakme. I really didn't expected that it would be so mediocre like when you apply it on lips it just looks like that you are wearing some transparent gloss which is only shining on your lips and it may transfer on your face , the only thing which I like about this gloss is it is a nice strawberry flavor which you would also like but the quality of this product is very average. And the scariest part is that the ingredient list is not available. You don't know what are you going to apply on your lips like at least ingredient list should have been provided but sadly it is not. And it really feels sticky and heavy on lips too, like you will always have a feeling that you have wore something on your lips which is very irritating. I think most of the people are not going to like it maybe people who like glosses with a transparent shine finish may like it but beauties who are looking for good pigmentation should definitely not purchase this.

RECOMMENDATION :- No, i will definitely not recommend it to anyone and only those people should buy these gloss who like transparent finish on lips.

Will I repurchase it again? :- No, never , I am never going to purchase it again.

RATING :- 2/5

STEP BY STEP RECIPE OF NORTH INDIAN FISH CURRY


Hello everyone!
Today, I am posting the recipe of Indian fish curry. In India, there are many types of fish curries changing from one state to another. As in West Bengal the taste of fish curry is different and is also known as SHORSHE MAACH whereas in south India there are different types of curries with different names. But what I am going to post today is a north Indian style fish curry which is really delicious and is mainly cooked in garlic-mustard paste.


prep. time :- 30 min.
cooking time :- 45 min.
total time taken :- 1 hour 15 min
Makes 6 service

Ingredients :-
1 kg tuna/rohu fish
for marination
i) 1 tsp turmeric
ii) 1 tsp red chilli powder
iii) 1 tsp Minced garlic
iv) 1 tsp mustard powder
v) salt to taste
v) Mustard Oil for deep frying

For curry
i) 5 tsp Mustard paste
ii) 2 whole garlic cloves
iii) 2 tomatoes pureed or chopped
iv) 1 tsp turmeric
v) 3 tsp red chilli
vii) Mustard oil for frying
viii) half tsp panchforan 

For panchforan :-
It is a blend of spices for giving an aromatic touch to the dish and is a really important ingredient and is made up of 5 spice which are :-
Mustard (sarso)
Fennel seeds (saunf)
Carom seeds ( ajwain )
Fenugreek seeds (methi)
Nigella/onion seed (mangrail)

Method:-

i) Wash fish thoroughly with water and salt. Salt is very helpful in cleaning impurities from fish easily. Mix all the ingredients of marination together in a bowl and than put the fish into it and let it rest for 15 minutes so that th fish absorbs all the flavors from spices.


ii) Make a paste of garlic and mustard and keep it aside.

iii) Heat mustard oil in a kadhai and put the marinated fish into it. Fry it till it is golden brown.

iv) When the fish is nice golden brown than take out the fish from oil and keep it on a tissue paper. Then the leftover oil in which the fish was fried has the flavors of fish so, we don't have to discard that oil, because that oil contains lots of flavors so we will make the curry in that flavorful oil.
v) Put the panchforan in the kadhai and fry for 2 minutes and than add mustard and garlic paste, pureed tomatoes, turmeric and red chilli powder and fry it till it becomes red and the curry starts g a nice aromatic smell and don't forget to leave the kadhai for even a minute because if you stop frying it for a minute than it will be burned so just keep frying it till it becomes red and when the paste is totally fried than add 2 cups of water in it or according to your measurement if you want it to be a little bit runny than 3 cups of water is fine and if you want it to be of medium consistency then add 2 cups of water and if you want thick gravy than add one and a half cup of water.
vi) And than let it simmer for 5 minutes.

vii) After simmering the curry for 5 minutes add fried fish into it and simmer it for 2 minutes. Don't simmer it for long as it may disturb the fish firmness or it will make the fish too soggy, so, just simmer it for two minutes and turn off the flame.

viii) Put it in a serving bowl and serve hot.

So, this was my recipe of Indian Style Fish Curry for more upcoming recipes, STAY CONNECTED.

Lemon moisturizes and conditions the hair and makes it shiny and soft too while making the scalp healthy and eliminating the dandruff.

ii) Wash your hair regularly :- Wash your hair regularly for eliminating dead cells from you scalp but don't wash it obsessively and with shampoos loaded with chemicals like lauryl sulfate because it can make the scalp dry causing more dandruff.

iii) Yogurt :- Use yogurt to get rid from dandruff as it it is a natural conditioner too. Just wash your hair with water and rinse it. Apply plain yogurt on your scalp and leave it for 10-15 minutes and rinse it with cooled down green tea, it will help eliminate dandruff from skin and will also thoroughly condition the hair.

THALGO BRIGHTENING REGULATING ESSENCE REVIEW


Hello Everyone!
Today, I am reviewing Thalgo Brightening Regulating Essence. I got this cream in My Envy Box November edition. This is a sample of 2 ml but it can be reviewed as i have applied it 4 times on my face, so I can write down my experience with this.

Price :- Rs. 3700 for 30 ml

Ingredients :-

Directions to use :-
Apply morning and evening under smoothing, brightening fluid on the entire face and neck.

What the company claims:-

Thalgo Brightening essence 30 ml

Likes :-
- Mild fragrance
- Instantly brightens the skin
- Lightens skin tone
- Moisturizes the skin while brightening it

Dislikes :-
- Expensive
- Not available in everywhere
- Doesn't contains SPF



                                                    OVERALL VERDICT
It is a good product from Thalgo , as , we all know Thalgo is a very reputed brand and is well known for their skincare products . It is a transparent gel serum and has a very mild fragrance and as written on the info card it does brightens your skin tone and makes it one tone fair. This product has drawbacks too as it is not available everywhere and it doesn't contains SPF too which is a con for me because if I am paying Rs. 3700 for this product than we all expect some things but it doesn't contains it so maybe buying this product in future for me is a little bit hazy :p. I can't say much about this product because I have used this only 4 times, so I can tell you people only this much about this product. 

RECOMMENDATION :-  Yes, I definitely recommend it.

Will I repurchase it? : Yes, I will repurchase it.

RATING :- 4/5
