Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum

Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum Review

by Jagriti Verma

Hello, everyone!

We are women of 21st Century who love experimenting with our hair. Some days we want it to be sleek straight while other days want it to be crazy curly. In this hush life, we are left with no time for taking care of our long tresses. The damage caused to hair due to heat styling products is irreparable and the prolonged application of heat leaves hair dull and dry which eventually leads to a number of hair problems. So, here I review the product of the day to combat a lot of our everyday hair issues, and that is the MATRIX BIOLAGE HAIR SMOOTHENING SERUM.  So here we go ladies!!
Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum

 

What is it and who is it for?

It is a deep hair smoothening serum which smoothes dry and frizzy hair. It also helps for detangling hair after shampoo because there are very high chances of hair breakage when they are wet.

It is for women who have dry and frizzy hair as well as for those who have little time for taking routine care of their hair.

Price:

I got it from a local pharmacy at Rs. 275/- for 100 ml

Natural/Organic/Vegan?

No

Sensitive Skin Alert?

No

Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum 3

What does the Brand Claim about Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum?

Biolage infuses weightless smoothness which controls frizz and dryness of hair while keeping the look natural. It deeply smoothens out the roughness at the end of the hair. It gives protection to hair from humidity and adds shine to the hair without it looking oily and limp. It is infused with a blend of taming polymers, avocado, and grape seed oil. It claims to gently cover hair to control frizz and seal it with shine and luster without giving it an oily look.

It can be found easily at any local pharmacy.

Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum 2

How to Use:

Take a very small amount of serum in your hands and apply evenly throughout the length of your damp hair. Avoid applying it on the roots. Dry or style as desired.

My Experience with Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum

It is a budget smoothening serum and the price is quite reasonable as compared to other hair smoothening serums. It works well for detangling your hair after shampoo as it reduces hair breakage. I use it generally for managing flyway hair. It gives shine and smoothness to hair which makes it really easy to manage your hair throughout the day. It can be applied a number of times in a day and does not make hair limp and oily as it is very light weighted serum. It is a good product for everyday use. The fruity fragrance of the serum is definitely a thumb up.But as the brand stresses on frizz control, it is unable to work wonders for someone who has extremely frizzy and dry hair. Running fingers through my hair smoothly is still a dream! :D :D

Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum 1

Positives of Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum

  • Price is quite reasonable.
  • It comes in a handy plastic bottle container which makes it easy to carry in your purses.
  • Fruity fragrance of serum.
  • Only a little amount of product is needed as the serum has a good coverage
  • Lightly weighted serum which does not give an oily and limp look to hair.
  • It gives natural look to the hair.
  • Good for styling hair gives a good finish.

Negatives of Matrix Biolage Hair Smoothening Serum

  • Works average on very dry and frizzy hair.
  • It does not have long stay, requires frequent application.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I will recommend and repurchase since the product is of budget price and it works great for everyday use. A 100 ml serum bottle will last for 3 months if applied daily. If you are not an everyday user and use it only for styling hair on occasions, then it will last longer. The shelf life of the product is 36 months which makes it durable.

Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal Face Pack Review 7

It is has a nice tube packaging just like the package of a toothpaste. I found the product to be a wonderful deep cleanser as the mask can be applied twice a week, once a week can work.

Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal Face Pack Review Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal Face Pack Review 2

It is a good mask for women who have less time in a week for nourishing and moisturizing our skin and making it free from dead skin cells. It is black colored cream which has to be applied evenly covering the entire face. Avoid applying it under-eye area. I found the product brought an intense glow to your face which is good for women who want to apply it before going to some function or party. But, the effect of the product is short lived. It is not a total substitute for a proper cleanse.

  • Spreads easily
  • Easy to use

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review 3

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review

by Jagriti Verma

Hello my lovely ladies!

Nourishing your skin and hair with ordinary coconut oil and not getting desired results?? Try something new. Nourishing your hair and skin with oil is a must in winters as dryness causes the skin and hair to become rough. Washing your hair with warm water washes out the natural scalp oil leaving it rough and dry making it difficult to manage. Dryness is a grave issue for skin in winters; it requires frequent moisturizing to keep skin free from dry patches and dull look. Today, I shall be reviewing Fabindia Virgin Coconut Massage Oil. Let’s find out how different it is from other coconut oil brands.  :)

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review

What is it and who is it for?

It is virgin coconut oil which is extracted from coconut milk which is for hair and body massage.

It can be used by anyone (men and women) except the ones who are allergic to oil as there are lot of people who develop acnes on their face due to use of oil on the scalp.

 

Price:

It bought it for Rs. 650/-(250 ml bottle) from a Fabindia outlet.

 Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review 3

Natural/Organic/Vegan?

Yes, it is natural.

 

What does the brand claim about Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil?

The brand claim claims that the virgin coconut oil extracted from coconut milk is made with light non greasy virgin coconut oil extracted through cold process preserving the natural goodness of oil. The oil known for its moisturizing properties nourishes and hydrates the skin. It adds softness, luster and shine to your hair and stimulates hair by getting deep into follicles.

It can be found at any of the Fabindia outlets.

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review 2

How To use :

Apply on body and scalp. Massage with required pressure and wash off after an hour.

 

Instructions:

Don’t put moist hands in the jar as there is development of fungus when oil comes in contact with moisture.

Keep the container in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.

 

Key Ingredients:

Cold-processed virgin coconut oil.

 

My Experience with Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil:

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review 4

This is second product of Fabindia I have used after a very long time and every time it impresses me with the quality of the product though at a very heavy price! It has a sturdy wide mouth air tight glass container. The product contains only pure coconut oil as its ingredients which make it a quality product. I bought it in winters and to my surprise it did not solidify which in itself shows the purity of the product. Coconut Oil is very light-weighted and it does not feel heavy on your face and scalp. Massaging with it gave really good results on both my skin and hair. My skin visibly improved and my hair which is very frizzy looked nourished after 3 to 4 massages. I did not like the container because it is difficult pouring out oil as you may end up pouring out excess of oil which may not be required.

Fabindia Virgin Coconut Oil Review 5

Overall Will I recommend and repurchase?

I would recommend and repurchase only for those who do not mind shelling out heavy amount if they don’t get comprised on the quality as it is quite expensive as compared to other brands.

It is the first time I have been experimenting with Sugar cosmetics and trust me, the try was worth. It comes in a tiny bottle with brush applicator. The shade of Pink Rethink is Fuchsia Pink. The claim of one coat wonder is just not a claim by the Sugar cosmetics; it lives up to its claims. This liquid lipstick is easy to apply and do not require reapplication at all. I could get rid of the lipstick only when I used moisturizer to take it off. The stay is wonderful and the gives the perfect definition of matte to your lips.

Not only our face requires proper moisturizing, but our body requires it too! Yes, even our body needs to be moisturized just like our face to keep your skin look fresh and healthy. Most of us think it is only important to take care of our face but our body skin needs equal attention.

L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Hydration Supreme Emulsion

 

Hello pretty ladies!

 

Winter Season is on and with it creeps in the dryness! Cracks are all you can see on your skin. During winters, our skin becomes very susceptible to dryness as our skin is devoid of all the essential oils. Our skin needs to be moisturized thoroughly and frequently to keep dryness at bay which means you have to keep heavy stock of moisturizer at your place! Are you tired of using the same old moisturizer and are not very satisfied with results? To answer this question I have come up with L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Supreme Emulsion. Let’s find out how different is from other moisturizers. :)

 L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Hydration Supreme Emulsion

 

What is it and who is it for?

It is a light weight emulsion which works as a moisturizer for nourishing and moisturizing your skin. It might not work great on the dry skin patches.

It is for women who have normal to dry skin type and do not like heavy moisturizer that weighs down on your skin as the supreme emulsion is light weighted and blends quite with ease.

 

Price:

It comes in a 50 ml small jar for Rs. 660 /- from a L’Oreal Paris counter in a mall.

How to Use:

Apply on perfectly cleansed skin and avoid contact with eyes.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Hydration Supreme Emulsion

I brought this product as a substitute for moisturizer since moisturizer gave my skin an oily look and it made my skin dark. The texture of the cream is watery and smooth and has a pleasant scent to it though I avoid taking products having any kind of heavy fragrance.

L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Hydration Supreme Emulsion 1

The spread of the cream is great as it blended easily on my skin. The emulsion does not have an oily finish but keeps the skin hydrated. It acts a thin film which is good as it does not give a heavy look.

L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Hydration Supreme Emulsion 2

It can be applied before application of make up as it is very light and smooth serves its purpose. It comes in a wide mouthed glass jar with a plastic cover. It adds an instant shine on its application.

Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal Review , lakme percision kajal 2

Applying kohl is basic necessity for me just like eating food and drinking water! Even if I am not wearing any make up I make sure that my kohl is on! Sometimes I feel I was born with it as it has become a part of my personality. I am sure that there are a lot of women who loves Kohl as much I do! Good kohl gives your eyes a definite look and a perfect finish to your overall make up. Eye makeup is as important as face makeup and good kohl is sometimes enough for the eye makeup. Kohl is used by every woman- from a college going girl to working woman. Something which is to be used everyday has to be good enough to keep you going back to the same product! Today, I shall be reviewing Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal. Keep scrolling to know the review!

 Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal Review , lakme percision kajal

What is it and who is it for?

It is a twist up kohl with a precision grip introduced under Lakme Absolute range.  The eyeliners have four different shades which are as follows:

  • Blue Sapphire
  • Burnished Brown
  • Emerald Green
  • Ebony Black

It is for women who love applying kohl and try experimenting with their eye makeup. It is for those who do not compromise on the intensity of the kohl and want complete perfection in just one stroke.

 

Price:

I brought it for Rs 750 (0.35 grams) from a Lakme counter in a mall.

Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal Review , lakme percision kajal 2

What does the Brand Claim about Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal?

Lakme Absolute claims that the product gives darkest of the color with just one stroke. It gives your eyes an illuminating finish. It has a precision grip for ease of application.

How to Use:

Apply as desired on upper or lower lash lne. Also suitable as an etyeliner and for tightlining.

 

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal

I have been using Lakme Eyeconic Kajal and I am a big fan it .So, I thought about giving another Lakme product a try. I brought the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in Ebony Black shade as I required it for everyday use. It is a twist up kajal liner which comes with a precision grip. It justifies its claim of darkest of black color. Though it does not smudge at all, but it is of quite brittle quality as there are chances of particles of kajal getting in your eyes causing irritation. It is not very smooth in application.

 Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal Review , lakme percision kajal 3

Positives of Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal

 

  • Good precision grip
  • Does not smudge at all
  • Really dark blck color

 

 

Negatives of Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal

  • Little brittle so small particles of Kajal can enter and irritate eye
  • Expensive

 

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

No, it would not recommend and repurchase as the price of the liner is soaring high and for the ones who want it for everyday use may be a pricey deal! Though the intense color and smudge free attribute of the kajal is commendable but it is not worth 750 bucks! There are other kajal liners at less than half of its price which can give good finish and can be used for everyday use.

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation Review

Hello ladies!

A make up kit stands incomplete without a Foundation. In fact a good foundation covers around 50-60 % of a complete make up kit.

This winter with the wedding season around the corner I shall be reviewing the Maybelline New York Dream Satin skin Air Whipped liquid foundation with SPF 24, shade B5.

How to Use:

I have a normal to oily skin and a wheatish clear complexion. Now before applying the foundation, I used a light gel based hydrating moisturizer to give a good platform to the foundation to blend. You can also use any good non greasy moisturizer before applying the foundation since it is a must in winters atleast (Especially for Delhi winters and similar conditions). Take a small portion of the foundation and dab it across your face. You can increase or decrease the amount depending on the occasion or the look you want to take up. Also it can be applied directly or can be mixed up with any other light foundation as per your choice. In the picture above I have applied the foundation directly.

My Experience with Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation

The Maybelline Dream Satin liquid foundation gives a fully fledged coverage to the skin and gives a thin and appropriate coating all over. It has an awesome blending property. When applied on the moisturized skin gives a flawless, radiant and an even finish. The plus point of the foundation is that it gives a subtle dewy finish to the skin (for more dewy- glossy finish you can add or mix highlighters).

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation Review 3

It seals the freshness of the skin like a thin film. As per its claims, it does stands strong on most of its claims. Though the coverage is medium but gives a near perfect finish. It can easily stay upto 5 hours with the same finish, though you may require some touch up later. Also I have a sensitive skin and the product showed no signs of a red alert for me, so it’s a green signal from my side. But overall the product is a good pick for all season all occasion.

  • Not recommended for occasions with stay beyond 5-6 hours, also the coverage is medium.
  • The product description label doesn’t contain much information.
  • It is pricey for a regular foundation.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes definitely I would repurchase the product as the 30 ML pack will last for a couple of months if used regularly. Although the price is on the higher side but with the finish and performance of the product I am quite happy with the investment. I would recommend it for all those with my type of a skin and complexion.
