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..

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 ☺☺

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.

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.

Sivanna Colors Shimmer Brick in no.02 Review & Swatches

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

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?? So if you have been following me you would know that I love Oriflame products and do speak about their new launches on my blog you can read those posts HERE Today I shall be reviewing The ONE 5 - in - 1 Wonder Lash Waterproof Mascara which is a part of the The ONE collection of which I have reviewed tonnes of products. Anyway if you wish to know more about this mascara then please keep on reading...

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


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

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

Hi everyone,
If you have been following my blog since last 5 years, you would know that I do not experiment a lot with my hair. I have had hair fall problem since my teenage years and now more so because of a medical problem I have. Hair loss is a constant worry and that is the reason why I am very particular about the products I use on my hair and scalp and I do not experiment much with my hair. I generally use shampoos which are made of natural ingredients, inexpensive and are easily available in the market. While there are so many brands and innumerable hair care brands in the market I am always go back to my trusted favorite brand - Himalaya Herbals.Their Anti Hair fall range consists of 4 products with all natural ingredients and in this post I am going to tell you more about the products and how to use them...


Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

The Anti Hair Range consists of 4 products and steps to beautiful,soft and shiny hair and they are as follows:
Step one is OILING: Part your hair and apply Himalaya’s Anti-Hair Fall Hair Oil on the scalp. Massage the scalp gently in a circular motion using your fingertips so that the oil is absorbed into the scalp. Soak a towel in hot water and wrap your hair with it for 30 minutes before washing.

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

The hair oil is lightweight, non sticky and  is enriched with the goodness of Bhringaraja and Amalaki. This helps in  strengthening  the root shafts and preventing hair fall. It has a lovely faint scent and works well into the hair.

Step two is SHAMPOO:Gently massage Himalaya’s Anti-Hair Fall shampoo into wet hair and scalp. Leave for two to three minutes, and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. The product is effective for all hair types and is safe to use on artificially colored or permed hair.

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

The shampoo is white in color and has an amazing fragrance. It lathers into the scalp nicely  and cleanses it well leaving no residue.It includes an ayurvedic composition of Bhringaraja and Butea Frondosa that helps reduce hair fall due to breakage, and conditions and improves hair texture. Please shampoo the hair twice if you have generously applied oil on the scalp or the scalp will not be free of the oil residue.

Step three is  CONDITION - After shampooing, gently apply Himalaya’s Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner along the length of hair from base to tip. Leave for two minutes or even more if you have time and rinse thoroughly after. The product is suitable for all hair types and is safe to use on artificially colored or permed hair.

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

The conditioner is formulated with Butea Frondosa, Bhringaraja and Chickpea that nourishes hair and helps prevent excess hair fall, leaving your hair soft, silky and smooth. Use it on your hair and not on your scalp. I would say if you have time wrap it in a bun and leave it for 15 - 30 minutes using a shower cap it works wonders trust me. After done do wash your hair thoroughly to avoid any residue.

Step four is PROTECT - After conditioning, take a small amount of Himalaya’s Anti-Hair Fall cream and gently run it through your hair strands, while it’s damp. Use it regularly after conditioning to maintain healthy hair. The product is suitable for all hair types and is safe to use on artificially colored or permed hair.

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range Review & My Experience

The herb-based Himalaya Anti-Hair Fall Cream is a daily-use formula including Bhringaraja and Amalaki for reducing hair fall and strengthening hair follicles.It is best to use it  every time you wash your hair.The fragrance is amazing and will linger in your hair for a day or two. So if you have a smelly scalp or hair this would work best for you.

My hair after using the Himalaya Herbals Anti Hair Fall Range

My experience:
To be honest I never follow a regime like that for my hair as I am busy, I mean you know a full time bloggers life right?? But then now I realize that this really bought life to my dull and lifeless hair. Since last 2 months I have lost a lot of hair due to a medical problem for which I have been taking medicines but this range has also helped me in hair loss to some extent  and I intend to use it and repurchase it because I am all for natural products whether it is for hair or skin. 

My hair feels lighter,healthier and full of volume as you can tell in the picture above using the products.#4FabulousHair this is the range of products I highly recommend and you can easily buy them from any beauty shops, chemists or even online.

I hope you guys found this post informative and useful. Please comment below and let me know your thoughts.Have you tried any product/product from this Anti hair fall range before????

Until next time.. Take care xoxo
