Dr. Sheth’s Eye Cream (Limited Edition)

Hey guys,

This is a product review for the Dr. Sheth’s Eye Cream. I bought this a while ago, but only recently started to use it my morning and night skin regimen.

So a quick backstory on the company and how I stumbled upon their skin care line. The company was started by a family of dermatologist specializing in skin are primarily for Indian Skin. They use organic and natural ingredients in their skin care line. They have described themselves as a luxury skin care brand. Although their line is not in any way economical, it is not completely out of the middle class budget. I contacted the company via Instagram to inquire if their products are vegan and cruelty free. They claim to be so, but it is not advertised on their site. They also do not fall in PETA’s list of cruelty free vegan brands (as fas as I know). I took the leap of faith and purchased this eye cream.

Product Review: Colourpop Eye shadow Palette: Dream St. by Kathleen Lights

Hey guys

I started following Kathleen Lights Youtube channel. Her tutorials are simple and easy while her reviews and general vernacular is awesome! When her Dream St. eye shadow palette collaboration with Colourpop released back in December 2017, I was excited to get it. After a few months of money crunch delays, I finally picked up the palette in April 2018.

So quick side story: I ordered for $50+ so that I could avail free global shipping and ended up paying Rs.1400 as import charges. This never happened in my previous purchases of <$50 (Check that blog here) For those purchases I was charged $9.99 as shipping fees which works out to cheaper than the import charges. So i suggest all you guys buying Colourpop to buy for less thank $50 so you can save on import charges.

So for the review of the eye shadow palette. My office does not really take to eye shadow really well, so i usually just stick to using the eye shadows on my lash line. So how good exactly is this palette? Worth your money and shipping charges?

Forest Essential: Hair Vitalizer Bhringraj

Hey,

Hair fall is something that everyone has. In fact a certain amount of hair fall is normal and needed. The older dead hair falls away leaving room for a new hair in its place. Hence losing about 50 strands of hair everyday is normal. But there is normal hair fall and then is hair fall. The hair fall that makes you feel like you will be bald soon could be due to a variety of reason.

Unless the problem is genetic, hair fall problems can be solved. Maintaining a good diet with high protein intake, with omega 3 & omega 6 will help in overall hair growth. If maintaining a diet is proving to be difficult, the alternative is to provide a supplement for the hair growth. The supplement that has worked for me is the Hair Vitalizer from Forest Essential.

The sales assistant recommended that I spray the product onto freshly washed – dried hair, massaged into the scalp and then comb through with a wide toothed comb. The price that on the product was so hefty that I felt cheated for the amount of product you get. I used it everyday in the morning before styling my hair for work. But the one month that the bottle lasted, yielded such amazing results that I did not hesitate in re-purchasing it every time I finish a bottle. I am on my 5th bottle by the way. The product not only aids in hair growth but has also helped in dandruff and dry damaged hair.

This product is what drew me to Forest Essentials as a brand and certainly recommend the product to anyone who asks me what I do for my hair to grow. I would recommend it to anyone who has hair products pertaining to hair loss, dandruff & dryness.

If you are planning to try a product from this brand, go for this one. And please use it diligently every day. The effect shows over time. Your hair will grow and one day you will notice all the problems have either reduced or vanished altogether. I guess ayurvedic recipes give results over the course of time. The results are long lasting too. If you want to follow the regimen that I follow check it out: Bhringadi for Hair. Try it out and let me know 🙂

Colourpop: Product Review

Hey,

This is a company that has made a name for itself by promising and delivering quality products at an unbeatable price. Their products are cruelty free and vegan! Although there is no Colourpop store in India, they do ship their products to India. If you are wondering how the process goes, I may be able to help you out. Check out my blog on international shipping from Colourpop.

All the goodies I got were from their Super Shock range. Their formula for these products are unlike anything in the Indian Market currently. They have a mousse (almost wet) like texture but on application it feels like a powder. Super smooth and super blend able. Synthetic brushes are advised as opposed to natural fiber brushes. I just use my fingers. It does state on the external packaging that the product needs to be tightly closed to preserve the formula and prevent drying.

The Body Shop India: Almond Milk & Honey – New Release

The Body Shop India released a new range of skin care products – Almond Milk and Honey. Its meant for sensitive and dry skin providing 48 hour lightweight moisture. There are the usual range of products in the range: Body Butter, Body Scrub, Hand Cream, Bathing Bar Soap, Body Shower Cream and Body Lotion.

I purchased the Body Lotion and the Hand Cream. The scent is mildly pleasant and reminds me of the Almond hand cream variant that TBS sells.

The Hand Cream retails for ₹395 for 30mL. The has a shelf life of 12 months after opening so ensure you use it before it expires. The Hand Cream is mild and extremely silky. Its provides a lightweight moisture and absorbs into the skin quite fast. That’s a plus point when I’m driving in the car. At a red signal when I’ve got 120 seconds to find, apply and keep the tube back. I can vouch for the fast absorption of this product due to experience of applying hand cream while at a red light.

The Body Lotion retails for ₹950 for 200mL of product. It also has a shelf of 12 month after opening. The ingredients include Honey, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Palm Oil. There is also the ingredient PEG-100 Stearate which is a combination of two or more oils (palm or coconut) combined with Stearic Acid to form a water soluble ester. Products and formulas containing PEG 100 Stearate should not be used on broken or irritated skin. It is also indicated that the product should not be used on the face. The Body Lotion has the consistency of a cream that breaks down to a lotion upon product warming and application on the skin. Although the product is stated for dry and sensitive skin, I’ve been using it for a week at night. The product is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves and mildly sweet comfortable scent on the skin. Although the product does not live up to its 48hr claim, the lotion provides the moisture I require throughout the night during the cold rainy season.

These new releases of The Body Shop provides a welcome change in their usual selection of products. The scent is mild and sweet with a comfortable feel after application. If you are looking for a new scent to try or a lightweight body cream or lotion try this out.
