Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist Review

Hi everyone,
Now that the weather has changed and gone from hot to rainy and humid, what is the first thing that affects us?? In my opinion it has got to be hair!! As the season changes it affects the overall health of the hair and hairfall is something which needs to be catered to immediately. Now I am not talking about a product related to hairfall but something which will instantly de tangle and freshen your hair in this humid weather as for some of us our hair tends to smell in 2 days of washing them. So is it a hair perfume?? Find out in my review of Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist. Keep on reading to know more...

Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist Review 

Price: Rs. 265/- for 100ml. Available on Nykaa &  Amazon 

Ingredients:

Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist Review 


Brand description:
Blended with natural extracts of apple and green tea, this conditioning mist has an irresistible scent that leaves your hair fresh and shiny. Just one spritz of this and your hair will be filled with a beautiful fragrance that is sure to get you noticed.
  • Add instant shine to your hair
  • Detangles hair
  • Adds fragrance for freshness
  • Alcohol-free

Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist Review 


The product comes in a plastic white opaque spray bottle with all required and necessary information printed on it. The bottle is pretty basic,nothing fancy but is travel friendly in my opinion. 

The product smells amazing in my opinion due to the presence of Apple and Green Tea Extract. It contains no Alcohol which is amazing as it won't dry the hair. The way you need to use it is - Spray on your damp hair post hair wash and then comb with a wide tooth comb as it avoids breakage. Now when I wash my hair I spray a little bit on the scalp because my scalp tends to stink in this humid Mumbai weather and hence I wash my hair every alternate day. This product doubles up as a hair mist and something which acts a detangling spray.

Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist Review 

I have used the Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist in the pic :)

In my opinion and experience it worked well in de tangling my hair and making it soft. I felt the difference in my hair. Even without conditioner my hair felt softer but not frizz free although there was some shine but nothing out of the box. Since I have an oily scalp it worked well for me and I love how the smell lingers all day. You can use it other days as well even when you haven't washed your hair but make sure you dampen your hair a bit and then spray. Also I would not suggest using this product on a dirty scalp as it may clog your pores and cause hairfall. So nothing is wrong with the product it is just that you must use it on a clean scalp in my opinion. Overall I liked this product as it freshens my hair and scalp, detangles it and the smells lingers in the hair all day. This will suit all hair types as it is lightweight. Go ahead and try it once if you haven't yet.

Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist is a must have hair conditioning mist in this humid weather as it instantly freshens the hair and scalp but also detangles the hair making them soft and manageable. Have you tried this product guys?? Do let me know in the comments section.

Hiphop Men Deep Cleansing Nose Strips Review & Demo

Hi everyone,
I am posting after many days simply because I did not feel like and also YouTube keeps me busy now a days.Starting a YouTube channel in 2017 is challenging because almost everybody is there on that platform but then you must do what you do & believe in what you do and enjoy the process, which in the bargain will teach you so many new things which you may not explored before. I started it because I always wanted to and be more creative and upgrade myself .

Writing and maintaining a blog since 4.5 years is no joke.Everyday is a new day and what I have realized over the years that unless you review something recently launched you don't get the views. But then again I started my blog to tell you about inexpensive and budget friendly options and have crossed 1 million page views in spite of having a simple blog. So unlike before I just don't blog for the views they come anyway. The ones who admire you come no matter what and the others are just silent spectators and some haters too who dislike my videos ;) I hope you have watched some of my videos if you haven't do visit my channel HERE and do subscribe if you would like to support me in my YouTube journey just like you may have done on my blog, I will really be greatful for that.

Coming to today's review is another amazing find which I discovered 2 months ago and fell in love with. I am sure if you have been following me here I have talked about the brand Hiphop Skin care and some of their products which I have mostly loved using. So if you read my review on their Nose Strips before you would know I was very disappointed. So a fellow blogger friend recommended me to try the Hiphop Men Deep Cleansing Nose Strips which yes says for Men but anybody could use it, trust me. So I have all good things to say about it. Keep on reading to know my views on the same..

Hiphop Men Deep Cleansing Nose Strips Review & Demo

Price: Rs.129/- for 5 pieces/Strips. You can easily buy it online HERE and this brand is available at Beauty Centre/Shop in Mumbai as well.

Brand claims/Ingredients: (click)



Packaging:
The strips do come in a cardboard box which is white and black in color and a picture of a man using the strip.At the back you will get all the information you want including ingredients and how to use. These are perfect for travel as well in my opinion.

Hiphop Men Deep Cleansing Nose Strips Review & Demo



Since quite sometime I have had blackhead issues and you will always have them unless you are Kim Kardashian.. Lol !! who cares about her face all the time. So regular exfoliation is a must but lazy me I have ten thousand things to do and remember which makes me exhausted at the end of the day so I often skip exfoliating my nose. So the result is enormous amount of black and whiteheads on the nose.So I was looking for a nose strip which was inexpensive and found this one and ordered it from Nykaa - the best decision ever I tell you..Lol






So what you need to do is use a warm cloth and rub on the area around the nose and this will open the pores.Then wet that area and apply the strip. Make sure you do that properly focusing on the tip of the nose as well.Then press it well, in no time it will stick to the skin and become firm. Keep it for good 20  to 30 minutes. Now you can peel off by going from side to centre from both sides at the same time or try to peel the edges first slowly  because it is painful and your eyes will start watering. What I do is I rip it with force from right to left in one go that way it pains less.After use you can apply the After treatment soothing gel on the nose which is nice. So the first time I tried I was like OMG!!!! because I knew there were many sitting on my nose as my nose used to itch often. So like they say it does takes off oil,dirt and also black & whiteheads which is true however you may need to use it at least once in 10 days to keep the area blackhead free which I think is not an issue. Overall I really love these and may buy more soon unless I find something more cheaper and effective. Go ahead and try this.I think it says what it does so it is an amazing product in my opinion.

MLWM Rating: 4.8/5

Hiphop Men Deep Cleansing Nose Strips  is one of the best inexpensive blackhead nose strip available in the market and works very well. Have you tried this yet or you are planning to?? Comment below in the comments section and let me know.

Until next time.. Take care xoxo

Himalaya Herbals Pure Skin Neem Facial Kit with Massager - Review & Demo

Hello everyone,
I cannot stress enough on the fact how important it is to take care of our skin. If you have been following my blog, since the last 5 years, you would know how much I have stressed on  the importance of good skin. I am a big fan of natural products. It is generally said why use makeup if you have good skin?? I think that is true because if you have clear skin you don't need a lot of makeup to hide your flaws. Skin free of acne is a dream now-a-days.


Himalaya Herbals Pure Skin Neem Facial Kit with Massager - Review & Demo

I was always proud of my skin being acne free until very recently during summer, they started popping on my face. To be honest, summer is the worst month for my skin. I did realize that during this time, my skin needs extra care and pampering. So I made sure I did my best. While I have so many brands and products to try as a blogger, I always go back  to my holy grail trusted brand 'HIMALAYA HERBALS'. If you are from India, there are high chances that you have definitely tried their Purifying Neem Face Wash which is one of their best sellers to solve acne/pimples problems.




  
Himalaya Herbals now has a wide range of products which they have expanded overtime. Recently, they have introduced their facial neem kit called the- Himalaya Herbals Pure Skin Neem Facial Kit. I got to try these amazing products and was very happy with the results. Everyone faces acne problems – from a teenage to adult, everyone! Also, it’s not related to the skin type. So, this kit will definitely be a one stop solution for all skin problems and I will tell you why and how. I will be running you through the 6 steps to achieve clear skin today! Please keep reading to know more.

Himalaya Herbals Pure Skin Neem Facial Kit consists of the following items and I will be mentioning it in the order I use it. The six steps is a do a Do It Yourself (DIY) Facial at Home:

HIMALAYA HERBALS REFRESHING CLEANSING MILK
The cleansing Milk is creamy and smells amazing. This is the first step to take off any dirt, makeup or residue on your face. Use a cotton and clean your face with it.

HIMALAYA HERBALS PURIFYING NEEM FACE WASH
After cleansing is done, the next step is Face Wash which is of a gel consistency and lathers well and hey wait because you get a FREE FACE MASSAGER with this kit as well, Isn't that cool?? So there are 2 things - one is like a brush which is really soft and the other is a massager. You need to use pencil batteries to use it. There is a button to control the speed as well. You need to wet the brush and dip in the face wash and use it all over your face. I would suggest to use it on a low speed to make sure it is gentle on your skin.Wash or wipe your face with a wet soft cloth.

HIMALAYA HERBALS PURIFYING NEEM FACE SCRUB
Using the scrub is the next step and essential when you do a facial at home.The scrub is white in color and has fine exfoliating beads which are very gentle on the skin and yet do a good job of cleaning the dirt from the pores on the face and exfoliating dead skin cells. Use a light hand on the face and massage it for good 3 to 5 minutes using circular motions. Wipe it or wash it off once done. I found that my skin looked brighter and baby soft. Happy ME ☺☺

HIMALAYA HERBALS NOURISHING FACE MOISTURIZING LOTION
The last step is to use a moisturizer. This one smells nice and is of a lotion consistency. It is light yet emollient to moisturize your face. If you have extremely oily skin do use like only a dot and spread it across your face or neck or you can skip and use any water based moisturizer like HimalayaOil Free Radiance Gel Cream which I have talked about on my blog before.

Sivanna Colors Shimmer Brick in no.02 Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,
Hope you all had a great weekend.Mine was pretty boring to be honest as it was raining heavily so I did not feel like doing anything or going out.I hope you checked my last video on NYN lipsticks, if you haven't then please check it out HERE. So today I am going to talk about Sivanna Colors Shimmer Brick in no.02 which I have had with me for more than a year. If you are a beauty enthusiast/makeup lover and are a social media addict you would know the highlighter trend, each company has a highlighter collection which may vary in terms of color, texture, price etc. So here I am to give you a review of an affordable highlighter which is easily available online and light on your pocket.

Packaging:
The shimmer brick highlighter comes enclosed in a cardboard box which is open from the front and the colors are easily visible. The container is black in color and has a see through cover which I love. Ingredients, the variant no. and some other useful information is printed at the back of the product. It comes with no brush or mirror. Product is travel friendly but you need to package it well or else it may get smashed easily as it is powder based.

The Sivanna Shimmer brick set is an exact dupe of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer brick which is very expensive. The products are Made in Thailand as mentioned on the packaging. The brand has gained instant popularity because of the amazing and affordable products they have in their line. I will be featuring more as and when I buy them.

I am wearing the lightest shade in the pic 

Coming to the product, there are 5 strips of highlighters in different colors in the same pan. It starts from the lightest at the top and darkest at the bottom.What I like is that it is versatile and will suit all skin types.It can be used an highlight i.e over the cheekbones, under the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes to make them pop. Apart from that it can also be used an eye shadow like the bronze color would look amazing on the lids.They are a little shimmery but very smooth and buttery.I find the pigmentation and intensity perfect but if you have pores on your face don't forget to use a primer underneath because it may make them visible. If you want it to pop more one can use a makeup setting spray as well. I am not a huge highlighter fan and I like ones which are subtle and not over the top. This one needs to be used sparingly if you  like it subtle or layering could also work. These colors suit our Indian skin tone best hence I love it and have been using it ever since.For affordability and versatility I love it to bits and highly recommend to try it once ☺

MLWM Rating: 4.7/5

Sivanna Colors Shimmer Brick in no.02  is a must buy and try if you are a highlighter junkie and love golden & bronze colored highlighters. It is the best affordable good quality highlighter in this price.Go get it ladies ☺☺

I hope this information was useful as well as informative to all of you reading. Please comment below and let me know your thoughts. Have you tried Sivanna Colors products before?? Any recommendations?? Would love to know.

Until next time.. Take care xoxo

Hello everyone,

If you follow me on my social media Instagram & Snapchat and see my snaps there you would know I had posted about this NYN 24 Matte Lipstick set but did not reveal the details then. Since that day I received a lot of requests to review and show it.So I finally decide to film it and you know what it took me 2 days to record/film, edit,crop and all that jazz to finally accomplish the unthinkable. I finally uploaded the video yesterday and would love if you watch it to know my thoughts, review and swatches of these. I swatched 24 lipsticks and at the end of it my lips were burning so I hope you like my effort  and show some love to my video ☺☺

Oriflame The ONE 5 - in - 1 Wonder Lash Waterproof Mascara Review

Hello everyone,
It has been a while since I reviewed a mascara because as I have always mentioned in my previous posts and in my YouTube videos that I am not a mascara junkie and do not always collect them from every other brand in the market. But being a beauty blogger and Youtuber I need to try some of the brands in the market if possible to let you know what I think of them, right??

Oriflame The ONE 5 - in - 1 Wonder Lash Waterproof Mascara Review


Coming to the mascara the formula is not very wet nor dry perfect and in between I would say. The wand is interesting and something different which helps in curving and coating the lashes properly. It will curl your lashes well but like I always have said without using an eyelash curler the lashes would not look shockingly different and I always make sure to curl my lashes. It is waterproof which I really like and look for in a mascara so I am happy in that department. Overall I have been loving this mascara as 2 coats of it make my lashes look fuller after application. Also I did not experience flaking which is good and something I am pleased with. I would recommend this to everyone because it is affordable, waterproof and does the job well.

MLWM Rating:4.5/5

I hope this review was helpful and informative. Have you tried this mascara from Oriflame yet? or any other please let me know in the comments section.

Until next time.. Take care xoxo
