Recently I bought 2 nail paints and a stamping plate from Born pretty store. One of the nail paint is stamping nail polish which i am going to review in this post.

I wanted to try born pretty stamping nail polishes from a long time.

Priced at 204rs for 6ml. (discounted price).

This shade is a bright yellow and i am very impressed with this shade. The colour payoff and pigmentation was good enough and a little goes a long way. I used it over a white base to see how bright the color looks. I am very happy with this stamping polish. I need to add more shades from their collection.

100% pure organic body lotion review ft. The Nake Organica

Hello Readers,

Happy new year 🙂 This is my first blog post of the year 2019. This year i have pledged to use more and more skincare products which are non toxic and safe for the skin. So with this i am Introducing you all to a organic brand called The Nake Organica.

About the brand – Nake Organica delivers 100% organic products and makes sure that people are using something safe for their skin and most importantly something which works. Each product is formulated using Ayurveda with modern technology by sourcing best natural and certified organic ingredients. Nake Organica is one of the best manufacturer of organic skin care products. None of the products are tested on animals. Their products are free from parabens, silicons, colorants.

Recently while looking for products that are non toxic i came across Nake Organica and got my hands on their products. In this post i am going to talk about a Body Lotion from nake organica.

The Nake Organica Body Lotion

The body lotion comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap. When i checked their website they had a pump dispenser packaging shown there. However I like the minimal packaging.

The body lotion has a medium consistency and is white in colour. I cannot actually make out what it smells like exactly. The smell is not luxurious but not bad either. Its not strong. I love it.

Ingredients – Neem, cocoa butter, sheabutter, olive oil and Aloevera pulp.

Priced at 250rs for 200ml.

Best Before – 3 years from mfg date.

My Experience –

The body lotion is lightweight and non greasy. When massaged it gets quickly absorbed into the skin. When i apply it on my hands it feels cold as if its quenching thirst of my dry skin and i love that feeling. My hands feel so smooth and soft. It perfectly Moisturises and keeps my skin supple. I feel like this is the best body lotion that has landed on my desk so far. The way it feels on my skin and knowing that it contains no nasties makes the entire experience of using it so satisfying. This has become a major staple in my skincare routine.

Ideal for – All skin types. If you have extremely dry skin then you might want to apply it 2-3 times a day.

Do i recommend it? YES… Its a great performing product at a great price.

24k Gold Vitamin C Serum Review – Aegte

I have seen so many bloggers rave about Vitamin C serum and it has become so popular cosmetic product recently that i decided to try one myself.

The one i got here is 24k gold Vitamin C serum from Aegte. This is India’s first gold based serum made out of 100% pure and organic ingredients.

About the product – This gold serum blended with Vitamin C is a pure blessing for the skin says the brand. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, marks and other signs of ageing.It is 100% organic and free from chemicals.

Priced at 2499rs for 30ml. Available on discount HERE or Amazon.

Packaging – It comes in a opaque cylindrical golden bottle with a pump dispenser and transparent cap. The bottle comes inside a cardboard box. All details about the product are mentioned on the packaging. The packaging is classy and the pump dispenses the right amount of product avoiding wastage. It is travel friendly packaging.

The serum is water like and is transparent and has gold tiny particles in it. To me it smells like a rose water and the scent is not strong. The scent wears off within minutes of applying.

Ingredients – Aqua, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Collagen, Vitamin B5, 24k gold, Niacinamide.

Benefits –

🔵Do you know how beneficial is gold for the skin? Gold is said to have anti inflammation and anti bacterial properties and It has a number of benefits for the skin such as reduces the dryness of skin, lighten the complexion, treats sun damage, rejuvenates the skin, increases skin elasticity, calms acne inflammation, reduces wrinkles, fine lines and spots.

Vitamin C renews and rebuild your skin.

Besides gold this product also contain two excellent ingredients that are hyaluronic acid and niacinamide.

Many of you might not be aware of these two ingredients. So just for the information, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide have super hydrating powers and are very beneficial to the skin in many other ways. Serums and creams containing this ingredient can make a big difference to your skin. (I guess i will do a separate post on this).

🔵A skincare regime that includes Vitamin C serum can help fight the effects of aging and give your skin a vibrant glow. A serum with Vitamin C + Hyaluronic acid will help you retain skin’s Moisture and will leave your skin looking youthful.

How to use the serum?

Once you clean and tone your skin or simply wash your face then apply Vitamin C serum and then use a Moisturizer which suits your skin.

My experience – As i said above that the serum has gold tiny particles in it, i thought they will stick to my face but thankfully they don’t. On applying it quickly gets absorbed into the skin. A little amount goes a long way. One pump covers my entire face. So i have incorporated this serum in my night skincare routine. Trust me you guys, this has helped me so much with dehydrated and dull skin. It has improved the look of my skin. Not that it has made my skin fair but When i wakeup my skin looks fresh and healthy and not dry and dull as it use to look before. My skin feels so smooth. It imparts a soft glow to the skin. And all of the above without irritating my skin. It didn’t show any results at first but once you get the hang of it you will start to notice a difference. But don’t expect a miracle overnight.

Serums work differently on different types of skin. So choose one that suits your skin. Make sure you use the right Moisturizer on top of serum.

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.

Packaging – The shampoo comes in a red bottle with pump dispenser.

  • No Sulphate
  • No Paraben
  • No harsh chemicals
  • Vegan Friendly

Ingredients – Water, fenugreek seeds, onion extracts, methi extracts, amla oil, brahmi oil, vitamin E, sodium cocoyl isethionate, 10 in 1 complex coco glucoside, lauryl glucoside, CAPB, D panthenol, polyaorbate80, phenoxyethanol.

Price – 999rs for 250ml. ( available on discount at Amazon for 699)

Availability – Amazon.

Please Note – I have an oily scalp and my hair ends are dry. My review will be based on this. Also my hair is not chemically treated.

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)

Do i recommend it? Yes. The shampoo being so expensive one will think 10 times before buying. But i say don’t think. Just get it. Your hair will thank you for this.

Roop Mantra Zero Pimple Gel Review

Pimples have been my constant friends 😁 So i have been dealing with pimple/acne since 7-8 years. No matter what i do they (pimples) always pop up now and then. I always look out for products to get rid of pimples.

Recently i got an opportunity to try the ‘Zero Pimple Gel‘ from Roop Mantra. The product is an Ayurvedic proprietary medicine and not a cosmetic or toiletry preparation.

The product comes in a tube with screw cap. The tube in turn comes inside a cardboard box. All the information has been mentioned on the box as well as tube.

Priced at 136rs for 15g.

Availability – Nykaa, Amazon, Flipkart, Shopclues, Snapdeal, Paytm Mall, Purple, Divisa.com

Best Before 3 years from mfg date.

The product is a transparent gel and has a medium consistency. Not thick and not runny either. The product smells like that of an essential oil. The smell is very soothing.

The product is a rich blend of herbal extract of Rosemary, Tea Tree oil, Aloe Vera, Marigold, Nimbu, Fruit Peel, Green Tea, Tulsi, Neem, Cucumber, Fruit pulp, Onion, Mentha.

It also contains methyl paraben sodium and propyl paraben sodium. Both these ingredients are used as an antimicrobial preservative and are said to be non toxic.

Directions of use – Apply over properly cleansed affected area or whole face twice a day. Can be used by both men and women.

My current skin condition is oily and live acne. My review will be based upon that.

My Experience – I was very curious about this product. So i started using it as soon as i got it. Being a gel its extremely light in weight and non sticky. On applying it takes time to dry completely. I apply only on my pimples though it can be used on entire face. As soon as i get a pimple i apply the gel on it and by the next day it reduces. The gel helps in drying out the pimple and thereby helps to prevent the acne marks. However you need to apply it 2-3 times a day to get the result. You wont get any results on single use. Use it for 3-4 days twice a day then it will definitely help with the overall look of the pimple. With soothing smell and unique blend of ingredients the gel feels so good on the skin. The product is nothing like Zero Pimple but it does makes a difference. The pimples will shrink and go away but the product doesn’t prevents the pimples from popping again… It just heals them. Overall a good product.

Pros –

  • Light weight
  • Soothing smell
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Dries out the pimple
  • Pocket friendly
  • Good Availability

Cons-

  • Contains parabens

They also make home-made decor items for decorating home. Items such as table mat, coasters, Tote bags, mugs, cushion covers…..

Here are some of the things i received from Kala Drishi..
