Shea Butter DIY and Review – o4u The Organic beauty shop.

Hello Readers,

As a beauty DIYer i always wanted to do DIY with shea butter. So i got my hands on unrefined shea butter from brand O4U: The Organic beauty shop

Unrefined or Raw shea butter is the 100% pure, organic and natural.

We all know how beneficial shea butter is for the skin and hair.

Shea Butter is a natural butter extracted from nuts of Shea tree derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It is wonderful moisturizer for skin and an excellent conditioner for your hair, remove wrinkle and dark spot, skin burns and small skin patches and wound.

It is incredibly Moisturising and nourishing on the skin. It seeps down into your skin to moisture the skin that looks youthful and is super soft to touch.

This shea butter from O4U is 100% pure, organic and natural. It comes in a glass bottle with golden lid. It is ivory white in colour and has a faint smell (somewhat like wax). It can be used by both male and female.

I use it directly on my hands concentrating on dry areas. My skin feels so nourished and well moisturised.

You can also apply this on your hair ends. Do not apply this on your face directly. Make sure you keep it away from direct sunlight.

Priced at 300rs.

Net weight 50gms.

Best before 3 years from mfg date.

You can do a number of DIY from shea butter given you have a few essential oils and carrier oils with you.

I am sharing a DIY body butter from this shea butter. Its pretty easy and quick. Its a 3 ingredient recipe.

💠DIY

Ingredients➡️shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil. You can use any other oil like jojoba oil or olive oil instead of almond oil.

Method ➡️

1 cup shea butter (solid),

1/2 cup coconut oil (solid),

1/2 cup almond oil.

You can also add 15-20 drops of lavender essential oil for fragrance purposes.

  • Melt coconut oil and shea butter in a double boiler.
  • Then let it cool for 20-25 minutes.
  • Now add almond oil and lavender essential oil.
  • Let this mixture chill. Keep in refrigerator.
  • When it starts to solidify then whip it untill a butter like consistency is achieved.
  • Store it in a glass jar.

Thats all. I am going to share a few more recipes after i have tried them myself. Any questions or suggestions are most welcome.

    Its December already. I can’t believe in a month it will be a new year. December, the last month of the year is my favorite because its time for a fresh start of your life. It’s cold and everything seems new and happy.

    Since it’s time for Christmas i thought of doing Christmas nail art. I got myself a Christmas stamping plate from BORN PRETTY STORE

    The stamping plate is round and has designs of Christmas tree, snowflakes, snowman, stockings, penguin carrying gift.

    You see that blue colour film on stamping plate its the protective film which needs to be removed before using.

    Price – 108rs (discounted price currently on their site).

    Buy the stamping plate from HERE

    Since i wanted to do a simple nail art i opted for snowflakes. They are pretty easy to do.

    I hope you liked the nail art. Many more nail arts coming soon. Stay tuned.

    That’s all for now.

    Peel Off Nail paint Review – Born Pretty Store

    Recently i came across PEEL OFF nail paints on BORN PRETTY STORE website.

    Peel Off as in you don’t need a nail paint remover to remove it. You can just peel them off. Sounds interesting. Right?

    In PEEL OFF there are few series. Such as –

    • Glitter temptation series,
    • Green/Love Joy Series,
    • Pink/sweet bubble series,
    • Red series.

    Each series has a number of nail paints. For eg – in red series there were 5-6 nail paint with different shades of red and so on.

    I got 3 peel off nail paints from series – glitter, green and pink. It was really hard for me to choose the shades as all the shades were so amazing. Let’s see which shades i got.

    The shades i got are-

    • Blooming Plum (glitter series),
    • Mistletoe (green/love joy series),
    • Ms Style (pink/sweet bubble series).

    Check Glitter Series HERE

    Check Green Series HERE

    Check Pink Series HERE

    The nail paints claims are-

    • Long Lasting (7-14 days)
    • Fast Drying (45 secs)
    • Good Shine
    • Odorless
    • Super Bright
    • Peel off

    The Nail paints are priced at 177rs. (after discount). Price may change depending on offers on Born Pretty Store website.

    Green /Love Joy series peel off nail paint in shade MISTLETOE – Its a dark green colour which looks really royal. Both the pictures are taken indoors. But the first picture is taken directly under sunlight.

    Glitter temptation series peel off nail paint in shade BLOOMING PLUM– Its a silver colour with purple undertones to it. All three pictures are taken indoors. First two are taken directly under sunlight.

    Pink / Sweet bubble gum series peel off nail paint in shade Ms STYLE – Its a nice peachy pink colour. All three pictures are taken indoors. The first two under direct sunlight.

    My Experience – The nail paints indeed are long lasting. It stays on for more than 2 weeks without chipping. The colour and finishing is up to point. You just need one coat for that perfect colour. The applicator brush is excellent. Spreads easily on the big nails. The nail paint is non sticky and spreads like butter on your nails. To make the nail paint sound even better – its odorless. Oh and it dries super fast.

    Now coming to the peel off part. Yes it does peels off. If you have short nails peeling off is easy and quick. If your nails are big then you have to struggle a bit with peeling. It doesn’t peels off entirely in one go. Also i noticed that when i applied base coat i wasn’t able to peel it off. Without base coat i was able to peel it. (Also depends on what quality/type base coat you using). These are personally my views.

    Below is the video of peeling off.

    If you have used peel off nail paints do share your experience with me in the comments below. I would love to know. Also in case of any queries you can comment below. I will reply asap.

    Aegte Complete Hair Defense Shampoo Review

    It is said that one should keep changing their shampoo. I don’t know how much of this is true but i change my shampoo. I can’t stick to one shampoo because my hair never loves that and moreover i get bored using the same shampoo. Depending upon my hair condition i always keep changing my shampoo. So this time i switched to AEGTE Hair Defense Conditioning Shampoo.

    About the product – It is a conditioning shampoo which refreshes hair without stripping natural oils from hair. It nourishes and strengthens the hair roots. It makes hair smooth, silky and healthy. The shampoo is silver in colour and has medium consistency. It has got a herbal smell.

    My Experience – I used it thrice in a week and noticed a visible difference in my hair. The shampoo lathers easily and cleanses the hair so well. My hair feels smooth and healthy. It also calms the frizz. The shampoo doesn’t feels luxurious but is totally worth it. The immaculate feeling you get after shampoo is so nice. The feeling afterwards is totally different from that i get after using chemical laden shampoos. Also, i didn’t feel the need to use a conditioner. The product stays true to its claims.

    Ideal for – All hair types. (As per me)

    The first thing i noticed is the smell which was so fresh. It refreshes, tones and hydrates the skin very well. Just a single spray over the face refreshes me. Skin feels so soft afterwards. It doesn’t contains alcohol so it doesn’t dries out the skin. Its like a magic potion, one spray of this refreshing rose water and your tired face instantly gets a uplift. My friend also told me that you can use it over your makeup. Well i haven’t tried that yet. I use it as a toner or in my facepacks. Overall i love using this.

    Nature’s Destiny Pink Cookie Lip Balm Review.

    I am one of those people whose lips dry out easily no matter what i do. So i always need to keep a lip balm with me wherever i go.

    Currently i am using this handmade ‘pink cookie lip balm’ from Nature’s Destiny

    The lip balm is mixture of oil, butters and wax (unrefined shea butter, argan oil, avocado oil, vitamin E oil and rice bran wax).

    The lip balm is pink in colour but its non tinted. It glides easily and is non sticky and feels light on the lips. It instantly softens the lips. Since i have extremely dry lips i have to reapply it after every 2-3 hrs. It keeps lips Moisturized for an hr or so. This is so good for night time when you need something light for your lips. Regarding the smell, it doesn’t smells like a cookie but has a faint smell of some oil.
    The packaging is also quite simple. Transparent stick lets you know how much product is still left.

    Priced at 125rs for 5gms. Available on their website HERE

    Pros –
    No nasties.
    Pocket friendly.
    Instantly softens lips.
    Non sticky.

    Cons-
    Have to reapply after every few hrs(in case you have extremely dry lips)

    Yeka Herbals Moringa and Green Magic Herbal hair oil review

    Hello Readers,

    I hope you enjoy reading my reviews as much as i love sharing them. Today i am going to review a herbal hair oil.

    Moringa and Green Magic herbal hair oil from YEKA HERBALS

    Did you know??
    the iron content in moringa brings oxygen to your hair roots. Its zinc content stimulates hair growth. The essential amino acid in moringa builds healthy hair strands and its omega 3 fatty acids nourishes your hair.

    The oil is 100 % natural and a blend of cold pressed sesame oil & virgin coconut oil along with 27 native indian ingredients. (see the picture below)


    This herbal hair oil helps with dry and lifeless hair. It calms the frizz and fights dandruff. It also reduces Hair Fall. Prolonged use will make your hair strong and shiny. It feels a bit greasy after applying so wash it off after 30 mins of applying. You can also leave it overnight. It has got a herbal smell.

    I just don’t like that the bottle is opaque. As it makes it hard to tell how much product is still left.
    .
    Priced at 350rs for 100ml.
    .
    Totally recommended💯 Especially for those who have dry damaged hair.

    If the product doesn’t works for you, try changing your shampoo or give at least a month to the product to see the results.
