Bekind Bodycare: Hibiscus Flower Raw & Dry ( for hair care) review

Hello Readers,

Recently i treated my hair with something new – Raw & Dry Hibiscus flower from BEKIND (to make my own hair oil).

This raw and dry hibiscus flower from BeKind Bodycare was sent to me by JasNaturals. Jas Naturals provide 100% Prime Natural and Vegan Cosmetics, Beauty Care, Bath Care, Hand Crafts and Snacks curated for the benefits of the customer and the nature in the best eco-friendly way possible.
About the product & how to prepare the hair oil: 

Price: 58rs for 20gms

Best Before: Mentioned on the pack is just expiry date ie 30/4/2017. Date of packing is not mentioned. I got this product in mid march.

The product is dry hibiscus flower and it looks like this. It has smell that of dried leaves.

Some Benefits of Hibiscus flower for hair: 

  • Boosts hair growth
  • Rich in vitamin C that boosts collagen 
  • Anti dandruff
  • Does away with itchiness
  • Prevents premature greying
  • Has cleansing and moisturising properties

My Experience: I have come across a number of products that are enriched with hibiscus but always hesitated to use them. Since many products are laddened with chemicals. So when JasNaturals sent me this Raw & Dry hibiscus flowers for #doityourself hair oil, i was very excited to use it. I prepared the oil as directed and applied it at night twice a week. After using it for almost 3 weeks i find my hair healthier and bouncy. Also it does helps with the dandruff too. You may not notice the results in a single use. But using repeatedly will definitely give you good results. It is also said to be effective for hair loss. But i cant comment on the hairfall thing as i dont have hairfall issues. All i can say is it does makes my hair look healthier and does away with dandruff.

A good product overall and the best way to treat your hair with hibiscus.

The product is

  • Easy to prepare
  • Easy on pocket
  • Free from chemicals

Do give it a try. You are definately going to love it 🙂

Blinglane.com : Dignified Statement Long Necklace

When it comes to bold and big necklaces i am a big sucker for it and BLINGLANE has always been my favourite destination to shop for such pieces. Thats because Blinglane accessories are Unique, High Quality, Long Lasting, Affordable, Classy , Luxurious and words are just not enough to describe blinglane accessories.
A week ago Blinglane sent me this Dignified Statement Long Necklace.

As always blinglane won my heart and i was very happy with the necklace. I love the unique style of this neckpiece. Though big, the necklace is not heavy at all. Its light in weight and therefore can be carried with ease. Pairing it up with your casual outfit will spice up the entire look and its definitely going to make you noticeable. You can also pair this up with your One Piece dresses. One neckpiece goes with all your outfits how cool is that.I also love the colour of this neckpiece which goes well with outfit of any colour. Also the pendant of the necklace is detachable. You can use the pendant with any other chain of your choice. This also makes the storage of neckpiece easy.

Blinglane surely knows how to make bold pieces with simplicity.

This is also one reason why i love their accessories to the core….Simple yet stylish and you will never feel like you have wasted your money on a particular accessory just to match it on a particular outfit. Because their pieces are wearable with any kind of outfit. ♥

If you are also into big bold necklaces then you should get your hands on this.

Here i have styled this neckpiece with a casual outfit – A green top from AND and black jeans. I love how the neckpiece spices up the entire look.

Island Kiss Lip Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Hey Sassy Ladies, Today i am going to do a quick review of lip moisturizers from ISLAND KISS . Winter or not lip care products are a must.There’s not a day when i dont apply a lip moisturizer. Its a must for me and i am sure for you too. Lips being the ‘center of attraction’ of your face its very important that you keep them moisturised. Nobody likes dry &  chapped lips. Also… Having a lip balm is not enough but having a good lip balm that instantly moisturizes your lips is a must.

Well let me tell you that Island Kiss is an indian brand that had already launched back in 2015 with 3 variants of Lip Moisturizers. I have reviewed them on my blog. You can read it HERE

Recently Island kiss launched 2 new variants of lip moisturizers – 1) Black Rose & Grenade Rouge. 2) Flamingo Pink & Peonies. 


The lip moisturizer comes in a tube with a screw cap and has a slant applicator which enables easy application. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. The packaging looks so Inviting and Sexy such that it will tempt you to buy it. And just like the packaging the names of the lip moisturizers are pretty alluring.

The Lip Moisturizers are

  • 100% Natural
  • 100% Pure
  • Organic
  • Cruelty free
  • Not tested on animals
  • Petroleum Free
  • Non Toxic
  • Safe
  • Provides Sun Protection

Price – 499Rs (Price is same for both the variants)

Size – 14gms

Best Before – 36 months 

Ingredients – 

  • Tropical kokum
  • Avocado & Mango Butter
  • Organic Beeswax
  • Stevia
  • Organic carrot seed oil
  • Pure castor oil
  • Rich vitamin E oil
  • Macadama nut oil
  • Black rose essential rose (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Pomegranate seed oil (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Citrus essential oil ( Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Peony Essential oil  (Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Natural Organic colour

The Black Rose & Grenade Rouge  gives a nice pinkish red  tint and smells purely of rose. I love the smell since its soothing & not strong but also stays on for a longer time.

The Flamingo Pink & Peonies gives a baby pink tint making your lips look like they are naturally pink. I can’t really make out what it smells like but the smell is good for sure. Not strong but soothing. Since it contains Peony essential oil i guess the smell must be of that. 

My Experience – The Lip Moisturizers glides easily on the lips and gives them an instant shot of hydration making lips super soft.Its smooth on the lips and not sticky at all. I love touching my lips again and again because they appear that soft. It keeps my lips hydrated for a good 4-5 hours without drinking or eating anything. I love how it instantly revives badly chapped lips…..Also that it contains natural ingredients that are good enough to eat 😁The smell is also soothing and not strong. The way it feels on my lips i feel like applying it often.

Rating 5/5

I totally recommend these Lip Moisturizers from Island Kiss ♥

Discount Alert – Island kiss is launching on Amazon and Theres a 50% off on Island Kiss Lip Moisturizers from 3rd to 10thfeb only on Amazon. So this is a pretty good chance to grab your Island Kiss at half the original price. Dont miss it out girls. Its a once in a lifetime offer. ☺

Fix Derma Teenilicious shampoo & conditioner Review

Hello Readers, Today i am going to talk about a hair care product which is specially formulated for the teenage hair. Its a shampoo and conditioner from an Indian brand Fix Derma Teenilicious. Before heading further with the review let me tell you a bit about the brand as this the first time i am reviewing something from this brand 🙂

About the Brand: Fix Derma Teenilicious is founded by shaily Mehrotra. Fixderma India Pvt Ltd was formed in 2006 to serve the newly emerging skin care market of India. The company focuses on manufacturing, marketing and promoting innovative
dermatology products in India and exports to over 20 countries across the globe, this number would reach around 30 by 2017.

Fixderma manufactures its products in line with pharmaceutical standards and are tested for quality resulting in the high-performance creams and lotions. You can check out more about the brand HERE

So last week i received the Teenilicious Joyful Jasmine shampoo and conditioner from the brand. Here have a look.

image

I absolutely love the pretty and girly packaging of the products with all that floral design on the bottle/tube. They look imported and eye catching. The shampoo bottle comes with a pump dispenser cap and the conditioner comes with a flip cap. All information ( Ingredient, price, expiry) has been mentioned on the bottle/tube.

Fix Derma Teenilicious Joyful Jasmine Shampoo:

image

What the brand says: Fixderma Teenilicious Shampoo Gently cleanses and hydrates your dry & damaged hair. Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo with Jasmine flower extract is enriched with organic coconut milk while pro vitamin B5 repair and strengthen your hair. Exotic fragrance is like an escape to the tropics.

image

Price : 325rs for 200ml

Fix derma Teenilicious Joyful jasmine Conditioner:

image

What the brand says: FixdermaTeenilicious Conditioner provides natural vitamins & antioxidants while renewing your hair’s cell structure, sealing in shine, and creating lush softness. A precious blend of Jasmine flower extract, organic coconut milk & pro vitamin B5  instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening the hair. It protects from styling heat and UV damage while creating soft, seductive, silky perfection.

image

Price: 310rs for 150ml

My Experience: As soon as i opened the bottle i was welcomed to a smell of jasmine.The smell is not overpowering. I diluted a little qty of shampoo in water and applied to my hair. This is how i usually use my shampoo.  What i noticed is that i need large qty of shampoo to create more lather for that perfect cleaning of my hair. A little amount wont be enough especially if you have long hair. After washing, my hair did feel a little dry and therefore i used the conditioner. After using the conditioner my hair felt soft and wavy. So if you are just using the shampoo your hair may feel a little dry. My hair type is dry so may be thats why. Overall the shampoo and conditioner both are good. It cleanse the hair well and leaves it smelling awesome.They look lovely on my bathroom shelf & So eye- catchy that anybody will be tempted to use it. I always feel very lazy to wash my hair but after keeping these products on my bathroom shelf i feel like washing my  hair every now and then. I completely enjoy using these products. They can also make for a lovely gift hamper for your friend or sister.

We all are aware of wet wipes. They are a common things now-a-days. They are used not just on the face but for many other purposes such as household cleaning, at workplace, personal care, even while travelling these wet wipes come handy. Earlier they were just a summer need but now they are used in day to day life.Yes there are many companies out there selling wet wipes but what matters is the quality. Today i am reviewing one such wet wipes.

Recently i came across wet wipes of an  Indian Brand called DUFT. Duft has 2Variants in wet wipes –

Aqua.

Refreshing Facial Wet Wipes with Aloe Vera and Cucumber

Duft- Aloevera & Cucumber wet wipes review

About: Cucumber which keeps the skin cool and refreshing. It helps remove dirt and impurities from the face and neck. Cucumber nourishes the skin from deep pores and leaves the skin breathing and gives a freshening feel.

Size: 200mm × 150mm
Price: 75rs for 25wipes
Best Before: 2years from mfg date
Material: Spun Lace Non Woven fabric

How did i find it? Used it on my face and found it pretty good. It doesn’t irritates my skin nor does it dries out my skin. Neither did it make my skin oily. No iritation nothing. It gently cleans the skin. Since these are alcohol free and paraben free it wont harm your skin. It has a nice scented smell which some of you might find strong. I also used this to clean my desk and it cleans pretty well. The packaging is good too since its resealable. You can easily carry this in your bag.

Rejuvenating Aqua Facial Wet Wipes

Duft: Aqua Facial Wet Wipes review

About: This one is loaded with Vit E which is the key ingredient for soft and smooth and glowing skin. It helps remove dirt and impurities from the face and neck. Vitamin E clears the skin and leaves it smooth, subtle and free flowing.

Size: 200mm × 150mm
Price: 75rs for 25wipes
Best Before: 2years from mfg date
Material: Spun Lace Non Woven fabric

My experience: Just like the Aloevera and cucumber this one is also gentle on the skin. I also used it to wipe out my makeup and it did the job well. This one is less scented as compared to aloevera & cucumber. For those who dont like strong scents should go for this. I also used this to clean my desk and it cleans easily. I dont have to struggle with it. The packaging is good too since its resealable. You can easily carry this in your bag.

Pros
✔ Alcohol free
✔ Paraben free
✔ Gentle on skin
✔ Resealable Pack
✔ Decently priced
✔ Multipurpose
✔ For all skin types (both variants)
✔ Mild scented (Aqua Variant)

Cons (not really a con for everyone)
❌I find the scent of Aloevera & Cucumber a bit overpowering. (Con only for those who dont like strong fragrance).
❌I wish they had packets of lesser wipes,say pack of 10 (for those who want to try at first) I only found pack of 25wipes on their website.

PLEASE NOTE: These wet wipes are not for personal hygiene ( As stated on the pack)

PNP Rating: 4/5

Paper Boat Drinks Chilli Guava Review

Heya guys 🙂 Have you heard of the new chilli guava flavour of paper boat drinks ?? Well last week i received this flavour chilli guava and i was so excited to try it out. I got the drinks neatly packed in a pink coloured tin box. I love this tin box way too much. Paper boat drinks sure knows how to make #bloggergirls happy 😁 I got not only drinks but a box full of childhood memories. I love paper boat drinks not just because of their drinks but also their concept behind it. Aptly named Paperboat – drinks & memories.

image

This particular flavour will take you back to those childhood days where you use to have guava sliced into four pieces and sprinkled with red chilli powder on it during your school recess time.

image

               CHILLI GUAVA
The restless few minutes before the school bell. The thap-thap-thap of your black shoes running down the school steps. The old school guard pushing open the gate. You rushing to the aunty with her basket of guavas perched on her cycle.
Our chilli guava is like we took that memory, squished it, and put it in a pack just for you. And hey, here are more slow-mo shots for you to savour –
Imagine the way she slices open the guava and dunks in all that masala. Imagine you having to bite the collar of your uniform just so you don’t salivate. Imagine hitching your lunch basket between your knees so that you can partake in this glorious feast with both hands. Yaaas. That’s what we’re talking about.

Whats inside chilli guava ?

image

Priced at 30Rs for 250ml.

image

When i got the drinks i simply couldn’t wait to taste it. A single sip and i was taken back to my childhood. The drink tastes exactly like the guava sprinkled with chilli powder on it. It tastes so real.. And perfect. Its tangy and spicy and everything nicey 😁. No added colours, no preservatives.. Just the good old goodness 🙂 The best thing about this drink is that its not harmful like other drinks such as pepsi & coke. You can have it Kahin bhi & kabhi bhi. Also if you are too Lazy to make juice at home  just store this paper boat drinks in your fridge.
