Upper Lip Hair Removal

by Sharayu K

Upper Lip Hair Removal: Upper lip hair has always troubled women more than anything else. The frequent visits to a beauty salon for removal of upper lip hair is quite tiring and to some extent irritating. Some women tend to grow upper lip hair more than normal due to hormonal imbalance. Others spend a lot on expensive gadgets to get rid of upper lip hair. But now with these DIY’s you don’t have to get embarrassed and spend tons on hair removal, so have a quick look at these DIYs with ingredients that are easily available at home.

Upper Lip Hair Removal

1) Turmeric and Milk

Ingredients – 1 tablespoon turmeric and 1 tablespoon milk/water

Steps- Mix turmeric powder with milk or water and apply this paste on your upper lips, leave it for half an hour to dry and wash it off by gently rubbing it.

This should be done once in a few days for a couple of weeks.

Turmeric which is usually used as an active ingredient in beauty regimes cleanses the skin thoroughly and milk which has lactic acid in it tends to exfoliate the skin and moisturize it. Together they help in removing the upper lip hair naturally.

2) Egg White

Ingredients- 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon cornflour, and 1 teaspoon sugar

Steps- Mix all the three ingredients together; whisk it until it forms a thick paste. Apply this paste on the upper lip area, let it dry for 30 minutes and then peel it off. On using it twice a week, within a month you will notice a reduction in the growth of upper lip hair.

Egg white has enzymes that dislodge the hair follicles from its base and also soothes the skin, thus helping in naturally removing the upper lip hair.

3) Chana Dal Flour

Ingredients- 1 tablespoon chana dal flour, a pinch of turmeric and some water

Steps- Mix all the ingredients together and blend it well. The paste that you get after blending the ingredients, apply it on your upper lip area and wait for it to dry. Once it is dry, scrub it off in the direction opposite to the hair growth. This will ensure that the upper lip hair gets removed gently.

4) Lemon and Sugar

Ingredients- 1 lemon and 1 tablespoon sugar

Steps- Squeeze a lemon and add the sugar to it. Mix it well to form a paste. Once it is ready, apply it all over your upper lip area and let it dry for 15 minutes. Once it’s dry, wash it off with water.

This paste can be applied every alternate day. Lemon with its acidic properties acts as a bleaching agent and lightens the upper lip hair whereas sugar exfoliates the skin and loosens the hair follicles so that they easily detach from the skin.

5) Corn Flour and Milk

Ingredients- 1 teaspoon cornflour and 2 tablespoon milk

Steps- Mix both the ingredients together and make a paste out of it. Apply a thin layer of this paste on your upper lip skin, let it dry and then peel it off after drying.

Repeat this process two-three times a week to see noticeable results.

This paste works because the mixture of corn flour and milk will stick to your upper lip area firmly and when you peel it off it will remove the hair too.

6) Yogurt, Gram Flour, and Turmeric

Ingredients- 1 teaspoon gram flour (besan), 1 teaspoon yogurt and a pinch of turmeric

Steps- Mix all the ingredients properly in a bowl, once the paste is formed, apply it on your upper lip skin and massage it well. Let it be for 15-20 minutes and then rub it off gently. Clean the area with cold water after the earlier step is done.

You can apply this paste on your upper lip area twice a week until the time you stop noticing the growth of upper lip hair.

So these were some simple home remedies for removing the upper lip hair naturally at home without having to book an appointment at the beauty salon. But, keep in mind that in order to see visible changes, you will have to follow this regime to the T.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral and Flirty Blush

Who is it for? Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral and Flirty Blush is for the people who want to quickly refresh their hair between washes and add volume and texture to their hair with no water at all.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral and Flirty Blush

Price- Rs 649 for 200 ml of product
How to use?

Shake the can vigorously. Hold it at a distance of 30 cm from your hair and then spray it onto your roots. Ensure that you massage your hair with your fingertips to cover your roots evenly. You may also brush through your hair to remove the excess product or residue.

My Experience with Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral and Flirty Blush


Batiste Dry Shampoo comes in a long can, which has colorful designs all over its body. It has a spray nozzle which works well. All the information related to the product is printed on the back side of the can.


It smells extremely good. It actually has a nice floral scent which kind of lingers onto your hair.

My Experience-

I am in love with this product. In fact, now I wonder how I was actually surviving without a dry shampoo in my life. It has simply changed my hair game for good. This product immediately freshens up my hair and makes it look bouncy and full of texture. I also use it as a hair setting spray if I’ve set my hair. You have to shake it very well before you use it. Also, this product does leave a white residue immediately after spraying; therefore it should be kept in mind to quickly massage it into your hair roots to avoid a whitish cast on your hair. This product is a savior for me between my hair washes. But it must also be noted that the next day it does sometimes make your hair feel brittle. I believe that one must wash their hair the very next day after using a dry shampoo; it does feel a little unhygienic with a product on your hair and scalp. On having said that, I still totally enjoy using this product.

What did I like about the product?
  1. Highly effective
  2. Amazing fragrance
  3. Makes the hair bouncy and textured
  4. Quirky packaging
  5. Removes oil from your unwashed hair
  6. Easy to use
  7. Easily available online and offline
What didn’t I like about the product?
  1. Expensive
  2. Does leave a whitish cast on your hair (can be removed on immediate massaging)
  3. This big bottle is not travel-friendly, opt for a smaller size
  4. The white residue (not very evident though)
Would I recommend or repurchase the product?

Yes, I would highly recommend purchasing this product as it is very useful. Not everyone every day gets time to wash their hair and we also know that within two days of washing the hair, it starts getting oily, so dry shampoo helps a lot in such cases. The Batiste dry shampoo works wonderfully well on the hair, leaves a minimal white residue which can be removed on immediate massaging, it makes the hair bouncy, shiny and full of texture and also refreshes the hair immediately. The small packaging of the same product is also very traveling friendly and can be used when you go on short trips and don’t want to carry bulky shampoo and conditioners. Even though expensive, I would still suggest you all invest in a dry shampoo, it will change your life forever.

My Ratings- 4/5

My Experience with Banjara’s Multani Mitti Orange Face Pack

Colour and Texture-

The face pack just looks like Multani Mitti (the usual creams, light brown color) and is a finely milled product. It is not gritty and feels very smooth on touching and mixing with a liquid agent (be it water or rose water)


It smells exactly like Multani Mitti, there is no extra fragrance of orange at all.


I have tried all the variants of Banjara’s face pack but this one is surely my favorite. It is extremely affordable for the amount of face pack offered and is highly effective too. I love the texture of it, really smooth for application. As the brand claims for it to be anti-tan, the orange element in the face pack actually does wonders in removing the tan and also on exfoliation removes the dead skin cells. I personally use it once in a week and keep on DIYing the product to suit my needs. It is also natural and acts as a great scrub.

Oxyglow Hair Spa Cream

Who is it for? Oxyglow Hair Spa Cream is for those people who wish to do their hair spa in the comforts of their home. This cream can also be used as a conditioner which makes your hair shiny and bouncy.

Oxyglow Hair Spa Cream

Price- INR 400 for 500 grams
How to use it?

For Hair Spa- Take a small amount of hair spa cream on your palms and start applying it to your thick hair strands and the scalp, after that massage it gently. Continue doing so till the time all of your hair is covered with the hair spa cream. After that, use a steamer to gently steam your hair or you can wrap your hair in a towel dipped in hot water. Steaming should be done for 15-20 minutes. Once this step is done you can go and rinse it off your hair to experience the shiniest, silkiest and the softest hair one can ever have.

As a conditioner- Use this hair spa cream just the way you use any other conditioner. Apply it on your hair strands, leave it for few minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

My Experience with Oxyglow Hair Spa Cream


It is a big jar which has a mossy green lid. Once you open the lid there is another thin transparent plastic lid that prevents the cream from spilling out of the jar. All the details related to the product are pasted on the jar as a sticker. The jar is quite bulky; therefore it is not at all travel-friendly.

Colour and Consistency-

The hair spa cream is of white color and its consistency is just like any other conditioner, a little thick and smooth on application.


It has a wonderful fragrance; it smells exactly like any other hair spa cream that is used at salons. You can also relate the smell to generic conditioners.

My Experience-

I have been using this product for almost four months now and till date, I am an only half way through this product. The length of my hair is little below the shoulder and therefore indulging in hair spa at home doesn’t seem taxing at all. I use this whenever I feel that my hair needs some kind of nourishment and care. I have also invested in a small steamer from Amazon and it does work wonders on my hair.

Whenever I use this cream, my hair feels silky soft and it doesn’t leave my hair frizzy at all. My hair feels and looks the same as when I get the hair spa done at any salon. It is suitable for all hair types and the presence of fruit enzyme doesn’t show much of a difference. I feel that it is quite affordable too; keeping in mind the quantity that one is receiving. I sometimes, due to lack of time, use it as a conditioner too; it works like any other conditioner. I really enjoy using this product.

What did I like about the product?
  1. Affordable for the quantity received
  2. Easy to use
  3. Smells good
  4. Effective
  5. Suitable for all hair types
  6. Serves dual purpose- Hair Spa Cream and Conditioner
  7. Anti-frizz
  8. Easily Available
What didn’t I like about the product?
  1. Packaging is bulky
  2. Taking out the product from the jar could be messy and difficult
Would I recommend or repurchase the product?

I would highly recommend this product to everyone. It’s the most affordable way of getting your hair spa done with visible results. The product is easily available in the Indian markets and is not harmful to your hair. It smoothens and softens the hair and makes it silky and shiny. Give this product a try.

St Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub

Who is it for? St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub is for the people who have acne prone skin and want an effective oil-free face scrub which also contains salicylic acid. This face scrub prevents acne and removes blemishes.

St Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub

Price- $ 2.77 for 6 oz product (170 grams)
Sensitive Skin Alert-

Yes (the exfoliation factor of this scrub is ‘deep’, not suitable for sensitive skin)

How to use it?

Firstly, dampen your skin, take a small amount of product on your fingertips and gently massage it onto your face in circular motion, do not over scrub as it has large beads. After a minute, rinse it off with water, and experience a soft and supple skin.

My Experience with St Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub


The apricot scrub by St. Ives comes in a thick squeezy tube which helps in hygienic dispensing of the product. Due to the large quantity of the product, the packaging is quite bulky. All the information related to the product is printed over it. The tube also has a flip open cap that helps to squirt out the perfect amount for one-time use.

Texture, Consistency, and Colour- 

The face scrub is of a thick consistency. Creamish in color, it has visible beads that are quite effective on acne. The scrub also feels rough on being spread across the face. The product has this color due to the presence of 100% natural walnut shell powder.


It has a really nice fruity, peachy fragrance which is really soothing. It doesn’t irritate the skin or any other senses at all.

Exfoliation Factor- Deep
My Experience-

These days, this product is my go-to face scrub as my skin is suffering from acne a lot. I got attracted to the fact that this face scrub has salicylic acid and is oil-free, in fact, it is written that it is medicated too for preventing acne and for an evening out the skin tone. I use it twice or thrice a week to pamper my skin. The granules/beads are quite visible and over scrubbing may cause irritation on the skin, therefore my suggestion would be to massage it gently. It definitely works wonders in removing blackheads and other dead skin cells. When you wash off this scrub from your face, especially touch your nose and see how smooth it has become. It smells good too. The best part is- it is parabens free, dermatologist tested, oil free and non- comedogenic (won’t clog your pores). It is a highly effective face scrub. It basically treats the present acne, prevents the new ones to come up and works on blemishes too. I really like using this particular face scrub a lot.

What did I like about the product?
  1. Affordable
  2. Oil Free
  3. Prevents acne and works on blemishes
  4. Removes blackheads
  5. Hygienic

  7. Cleanses pores and removes dead skin cells

What didn’t I like about the product?
  1. Not easily available in India
  2. Packaging is bulky
  3. Can be little harsh on sensitive skin
Would I recommend or repurchase this product?

I would definitely recommend this product since it is extremely effective on acne prone skin. It shows visible results in continuous use. It is not very expensive, only availability is the issue. Try and get your hands on this product if you are suffering from acne just like me! 😛

Banjara’s Neem Hair Care Powder

Who is it for? Banjara’s Neem Hair Care Powder is for the people who would like to use a natural hair mask to get rid of dandruff from hair and scalp and also which can be used as a face pack.

Banjara’s Neem Hair Care Powder

Price- 60 INR for 100 grams
Natural/Organic/Vegan- 100% Natural
How to use it?

Cut open the entire packet, pour the contents of the packet in a bowl and mix it with rose water or plain water. Mix it well, avoid the formation of lumps and try to get the perfect consistency, just the way a hair mask needs to be. Apply the paste carefully on your hair and scalp. Leave it to dry for 20 minutes and after that rinse it off with some water. Dry your hair and you have squeaky clean, dandruff-free hair with you.

Other way of making this hair mask is to mix the neem powder with some curd, stir it well to avoid lumps, and apply the paste onto your scalp and hair strands. Let it dry for 20-25 minutes and rinse it off with water.

One can also use it on the face as a face pack.

My Experience with Banjara’s Neem Hair Care Powder


It comes in the form of 5 green packets each weighing 20 grams, put together in a white and green coloured box. The box has all the information mentioned like ingredients, date of expiry, ways to use it etc. Each packet has the perfect amount of product that can be used for one time usage.

Colour and Texture-

Well, it has an olive green colour to it, and the texture is of a finely milled powder. It isn’t grainy at all and is a very smooth powder to apply.


It smells like mehendi (henna), just the way mehendi smells on application; this neem pack also smells the same, but it is tolerable and not very pungent. I personally detest the smell of mehendi on hair, but I was okay with this neem pack’s smell, so this proves that it is on a milder side as far as the smell is concerned.


To some extent, I did like using this product the other day. It was easy to make this hair pack; you hardly need any other ingredient apart from water to make this hair mask. Once I rinsed it off, I observed that the immediate dandruff from my scalp had completely gone and my hair felt squeaky clean, but my hair still smelt like mehendi. The smell wasn’t overpowering though. Also, what I did notice is the fact that it did make my hair rough, dry and frizzy, I bet using curd would help with this problem. My frizzy hair didn’t settle until two days, so this one is surely a drawback. But if one becomes creative and creates a more nourishing hair pack by including other ingredients then one can avoid this problem of frizzy and dry hair. This neem powder can also be used on face as a face pack. It is supposed to be good for your skin and can deal with acne and blemishes. I love these onetime use sachets, it’s a really hassle free way to create this hair mask.

What did I like about the product?
  1. Affordable
  2. Easily available offline and online
  3. Leaves hair squeaky clean
  4. Extremely effective on dandruff
  5. Easy to use
What didn’t I like about the product?
  1. Makes the hair frizzy
  2. Dries out the hair
  3. Smells like mehendi (for people who do not like mehendi smell)
Would I recommend or repurchase the product?

I would recommend this product to people who are suffering from extreme case of dandruff as it is highly effective on it but also note that it does make your hair frizzy and dry. This neem powder can be used on face too, so it does serve dual purpose. It is affordable and easily available. So, go ahead and use it to make various kinds of packs to suit your hair needs and skin needs.

My Experience with NYX Ultimate Multi Finish Shadow Palette Warm Rust


The palette comes in a black bodied case in the setting of three rows and four columns. The top lid is transparent so that the shades can be seen easily. The packaging feels sturdy and can prevent any harm to the palette. The top row consists of mattes, the middle row consists of satin and the last one consists of shimmer and glitter. The back side of the palette comes with only the shade name of the palette i.e. Warm Rust. It would have been better if the name of each eye shadow was given on the palette. Another drawback of the packaging is the absence of a brush and a mirror. If one is paying this much amount of money, there is no harm in expecting for a decent brush and mirror.

Colour and Texture-

The palette basically consists of four shades- beige, coral, mauve and brown. All the four shades come in three textures- matte, satin, and shimmer. The eye shadow palette is made in such a way that it is perfect to be carried around and many eye looks can be created out of this single eye shadow palette. The matte brown shade of this palette can also be used as a contour shade and the satin beige color would serve as a great highlighter. All the colors go very well with each other and I would say it is a perfect warm-toned palette for everyone out there interested in makeup.


 The colors are highly pigmented. I prefer applying the satin and shimmer shades with my fingers as they provide me with more pigmentation as compared to the brushes. But if you want subtle color on your eyelids, wet your brush with some makeup setting spray and then pick up the color on your brush. The application would be pigmented and also the colors would stay for a longer duration of time. All the colors are lovely and highly pigmented; one swipe is enough for a bright color on your eyelid. The shades can be easily blended too.

Staying Power- 

The colors stay for a longer duration of time, unless you have an oily lid then the colors tend to mix with each other. Once I spray the makeup setting spray, my eye shadow doesn’t even budge the entire day. The eye shadow stays for very long and lasts intact for good 7-8 hours.

My Experience-

 I am in love with this palette. The colors suit me well and do not look patchy at all. The colors are put together so thoughtfully in the palette that every time you do an eye look, you notice that all the colors go so well and in sync with each other, that you are left surprised. The finishes are lovely, you find something or the other for each occasion, be it for daily use when you can go for mattes or be it for someone’s marriage when you can opt for all the lovely shimmers. I have been using it on almost all the occasions since the day I have got my hands on it. Such a multipurpose product that you definitely need to try it once in order to believe its versatility in terms of use, texture and shade range.
