Aroma-Magic-Lavender-Face-Wash

Aroma Magic Lavender Face Wash Review

Aroma-Magic-Lavender-Face-WashIn my teenage I had a love~hate relationship with my skin. Thankfully now it’s a well behaved child .And as a responsible mother, i have a better control over its whims and tantrums !

However,there are two main problems with it-
1.It has a tendency to breakout ..specially on forehead and chin
2.Except for my T-zone, the rest of the face turns dull and lifeless very quickly

So, as far as cleansing is concerned.. I try using a cream based face wash for dry skin during the day and a cleansing lotion at night. (In winters) 

I tend to get bored with cleansers very easily .. so, I am always in a hunt for appropiate face wash/cleansers for my combination skin ! My recent find is Aroma Magic Lavender Face wash..  
What Aroma Magic Lavender Face wash claims-

Price : 145 INR for 100ml

Directions of Use & Ingredients :

There are lods of products to be written about….I promise to be a bit regular from now on.*tch wood* I will try my best to post 2-3 reviews a week. I hope you guys continue to support (bear with) me 🙂
On a happy note, today am going to share with you one of my favorite hair product till date. It’s the L’occitane Repairing Shine Hair Mask for Dry Damaged Hair. I am really lazy about DIY masks ( or any other stuff for that matter)..hence am always in a look out for good hair masks . If the product is good I don’t mind shelling out few extra bucks.
I had read some pretty good reviews about L’occitane Hair Masks and thought of giving it a try. I had bought it last year around June/July.. and after using regularly (once in a week) I have managed to finish only half of the product .

L'occitane-shine-hair-mask-for-dry-damaged-hair-review-indiaWhat I Love about L’occitane Repairing Shine Hair Mask :
Gorgeous fragrance. I can’t actually describe but it has a luxurious feel about it.Very rich.I don’t feel its overwhelming in any way

  • It’s a moderately thick cream. For my medium length hair ,I need about a tea spoon of the product. I use it only on the hair ends and along the length of my hair. Never near the root ( As I have oily scalp)
  • It smoothes out tangles, gives a nice volume and shine to my hair
  • My hair feels really soft ,silky and is managable
  • It did not weigh my hair down or make it limp
  • I use it once/ twice weekly. Its a lot of product but a very little amount is needed. Hence even after 6 months of use..I have half of the product left with me 😀
What I don’t Love about L’occitane Repairing Shine hair Mask :
  • Silicones and other chemicals
  • Big plastic jar packaging with a screw cap..cumbersome to use in shower with wet hands
  • Dipping finger everytime to get the product out…ugghh..It shoud come with a spatula
  • If used in excess amount ,it would make hair limp
  • Price. ( As its a luxury brand and the product really worked for me..I don’t mind) But it used to be around 1800 Rs earlier… 🙁
My Rating : 4.5/5
Final Verdict : I am absolutely loving this product.I would recommend this to all girls who have dry damaged hair…or rather hair, with a mind of its own….
See ya soon….. xo

Loreal Elvive Extraordinary oil (for colored hair ) Review

Loreal Elvive Extraordinary oil for colored hair Review

L'oreal-elvive-extraordinary-oil-colored-hair-review-indiaHi everyone. Today I am going to share a wonderful hair product with you.
Last month, I went to beauty salon for my hair highlights and the lady who colored my hair recommended this hair oil. I am so glad I went with her recommendation and bought this product, it is incredible.

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil comes in two variations – one suitable for all and other for coloured hair.  Both the oils are versatile in terms of use, you can use it as a pre- shampoo treatment, as a styling side for use on both dry and wet hair or as a finishing touch. I always prefer to use this on my wet hair, comb through gently with a tangle teaser and thereafter blow dry n straighten my hair. I finish off by warming a couple of drops in the palm of my hands n smooth over finished style. It is very light weight, non-greasy, smells really good and makes hair look healthy n luxurious.

L'oreal-elvive-extraordinary-oil-colored-hair-review-indiaMy Thoughts on L’oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil: 

My hair is coloured, naturally curl and little bit dry so needs some moisture and shine. After applying this oil my hair are no longer dry or fizzy but become more smooth and glossy. And it’s also very good as a finishing product, so fantastic versatility. For someone who has done so much damage to their hair, this is an absolute gem.

Application: It can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, before blow-drying or as a finishing touch. I personally use it before blow dry by applying around two “Precious drops “onto the lower half of my hair, paying extra attention to my ends. After applying I love the glossy feeling and smoothness it gives to hair.

Packaging: The product comes in an elegant transparent orange coloured bottle with twisted pump which helps to get the right amount of product to minimise wastage. The arrow on the top of the nozzle helps to open the pump. I am quite impressed with the locking system which helps avoid leaking. The bottle with fluid is very light. I simply adore the packaging.

Fragrance: It has a very pleasant, delicate fragrance which doesn’t linger long.

Texture: The fluid is transparent, very light in texture and doesn’t stick at all. Being light weight it transforms easily to hair and absorbs quickly. It makes hair so manageable, soft and smooth.

  • Non-sticky fluid
  • Classy and chic packaging
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Quickly absorbs in to hair
  • Adds moisture to dry hair
  • Result stays longer
  • Suited to all hair types

Cons of L’oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil (for colored hair):

  • Slightly expensive at full price
  • Glass bottle needs careful handling

My rating: 4.25/5

Final Verdict: If you need a reliable oil to make the styling process easier or a non-greasy finishing product, then highly recommended. It gives shiny, lovely, moisturized hair without making them oily. Even better results when massaged into dry hair. So must have product for colored hair. But it comes in two variations – one suitable for all and other for colored hair.so you should buy according to your hair
