cosmic energy meditation

Cosmic Energy Meditation: What is Cosmic Energy? Cosmic Energy is a metaphysical life-driving force that has been named as ‘shakti’ or ‘prana’ in ancient Indian texts like Vedas. This free-flowing energy is said to be present everywhere from the celestial bodies to every living being’s existence. Our body, spirit, and mind find their way to survive and function due to this ever-present form of energy.  This energy has immense blissfulness and it is a source of liveliness. That is why cosmic energy meditation has been practiced from ancient days.

Why Do Cosmic Energy meditation?
  1. Cosmic energy meditation reduces restlessness and brings calming vibes. The calmness helps to rejuvenate our body’s vitals and helps to cope with the stressful environment.
  2. Cosmic energy meditations drive away negative thoughts and depressive mental conditions.
  3. Cosmic energy meditation, when done in a proper way, stabilizes the blood flow in the body and helps to deflate the chances of heart disease.
  4. The relaxing capability of cosmic energy meditation decreases the level of emergency hormones (like cortisol and adrenaline) which are responsible for stress-related disorders.
  5. This meditation increases concentration level, intellect, and clear thinking abilities.
How Do Cosmic Energy meditation Work?

According to our Vedas and Puranas, cosmic energy can be received through various methods of cosmic energy meditation. This energy enters our body through the brain or mind and then it gets itself distributed in our body vitals using various ‘shakti chakras’. Chakras are nothing but nine vital points in our body situated in nine different spots of our body including heart spine, belly button, and forehead. The more you meditate the more chakras you can open up. It is said that, if one can awaken all nine chakras, he/she will reach ‘Enlightment’.

How to Do Cosmic Energy meditation?

This special type of meditation does not need anything except mindfulness so anyone can include it in his/her life. Here are a few ways one can do cosmic energy meditation.

  1. Concentrative Meditation or doing meditative yoga poses: Choose a calm place away from the noise and busy environment. Sit in Lotus yoga pose and relax. Try to make your mind thought-free as long as possible. Increase the meditation time at your convenience.
  2. Pranayama: Practise various pranayama techniques as per your skill level at a fixed time every day. Be regular for more benefits.
  3. Controlling Negative Thoughts using Affirmative Notion towards Life: This is a serious lifestyle change that can transform your life, goals, and thinking process. From my personal experience, I can say, that this mindset reduces stress magically.

Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care

As I am trying to grow out my hair for 2-3 years now, the ends of my hair have become dry. On top of that, I had to use heat tools in the past few months for quite a number of times. It has become extremely essential to put some extra effort to restore my hair to its original texture. I generally prefer herbal hair oils with a heavy natural oil base (like amla oil, sesame oil, coconut oil etc.). Natural oils are often very sticky and they tend to weigh down the hair sometimes. That is the reason I keep a store-bought light hair oil like Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care. I have tried all the variants of Hair & Care oil and my today’s review is the original variant which is the oldest one from Hair & Care.

Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care 2

Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care 1

My Experience with Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care

Packaging- This hair oil comes in a see-through plastic bottle. The bottle has green as its theme color. The oil bottle has a flip-open system for pouring out the product. It has a unique ergonomic shape for user convenience. The back of the pack is kept for all the informative details. The brand has revealed complete ingredient list which is useful to know about the product in depth.

Colour & Texture- The oil looks light green in the bottle but on hand, it looks colorless and transparent. The brand claims it to be a non-sticky oil and it actually is a non-greasy oil. Its consistency is almost like a dry oil. The main constituent of this oil is mineral oil and the rest is vegetable oil. Naturally, it performs like a serum more than a nourishing oil.

Fragrance- This oil has light herbal fragrance. The smell is not overpowering and reminds me of lush greenery. The staying power of this oil is not very considerate. I do not like my hair oils to smell strong as it induces a headache. Thankfully this oil does not fall into this category!

Experience- This is a standard variant of hair oil from Hair & Care. Like any other mineral oil based hair care product, this one also has a weightless texture which we often see on dry oils or oil based hair serums. I generally use this as my pre-shampoo oil but I have also used it post-shampoo as a replacement for my leave-in hair serum. This is a moderately moisturizing hair oil. Vegetable oil works for my hair and that is why this oil is able to take care of my frizziness problem to some extent. Being a lightweight product it does not cause product build up to my scalp. But, the smoothening effect and softened texture I get from this oil stay only for 1-2 days.

Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care  3

Overall Performance of Non Sticky Hair Oil by Hair & Care

Pros-

  1. lightweight hair oil
  2. Gives nourishment
  3. Softens hair strands
  4. Does not give annoying stickiness
  5. Smell is not overpowering
  6. Can be used in place of hair serum
  7. Easily easily

Cons-

  1. The main constituent is mineral oil
  2. Amount of natural extracts is ridiculously scarce
  3. Does not have long term benefits

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Hair & Care Non-sticky Hair Oil is a light non-sticky hair oil in a mineral oil base. It is a standard hair oil that provides instant nourishment and softness but does not have considerable long-term benefits. I would not be buying this one since I like its fruit oils variant with Orange and Anaar. If you want to replace your everyday hair serum with something nourishing, you might find it useful but I would not suggest this as a hair conditioning oil for dry hair.

It’s Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin Review

The popular Korean brand It’s Skin is finally here in India with their wide array of Korean skincare goodies. Today I am reviewing their The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin. I have been experimenting a lot of Korean sheet masks throughout 2017 and this is my new venture on sheet masks in this New Year. Fruit-based sheet masks are my favorites but It’s Skin has lots of other options too. So, I ended up buying this Carrot based mask. Carrot is often known for its anti-aging benefits and Vitamin A contents. This mask went to buying list as I wanted something moisturizing for my skin. Let’s read on to know how it fared on my skin.

It’s Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin Review  2

It’s Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin Review  3

My Experience with It’s Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin

Packaging- This mask comes in a sachet made of matte plastic. The pack is thoroughly sealed to prevent the mask from getting contaminated and to keep the effectiveness of the main ingredients intact. The front side of the pack shows pictures of some vibrant orange carrots. The look delicious! Though there are some pictorials and instructions are given in the back of the pack, I could not understand a bit of it since everything is written in Korean.

Colour & Texture- The mask sheet is basically a flap of cotton type material with holes for eyes, nose, and mouth. The size of the mask sheet is not perfect for my face. But this happens to every other mask sheet so it’s something I have learned to cope with. The serum provided with it is a clean solution. It is watery liquid but does not drip off. The serum is more moisturizing than Dear Packer Home Remedy masks; the consistency will be almost similar to The Face Shop’s mask serums.

Fragrance- This mask has a very light sweet fragrance to it. Thankfully it does not smell like carrots! The smell is not long-lasting. It will stay till the mask is on your face. I love the fragrance of this sheet mask.

Experience- This Carrot mask is my first sheet mask from It’s Skin and I am pretty impressed by its performance. The serum is not a drippy liquid and it does moisturize my skin. This mask says to bring back the vitality of skin by contradicting the environmental extremities and it does so. It helps the skin to stay hydrated. The winter dryness feels lot lesser after 3 days of using this serum. It gives a nice plump look. To make that plumpness stay longer, sticking to a proper skin care regimen is essential. This mask does not make false promises and it shows good results on my skin in this winter weather. This mask will also work in summer for those with combination to dry skin.

  4. Skin looks plump and healthy
  5. Did not cause acne
  6. Does not make false claims
  7. Soothes dryness induced irritations of skin
  8. Suits all skin type including sensitive skin

Cons-

  1. Mask does not fit properly
  2. Result lasts 3 days for me unless I rigorously follow my skin care regimen

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

It’s Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet Carrot Clear Skin is a good face mask sheet that moisturizes the skin and helps to get rid of flaky dryness. I am completely in for another of this carrot based mask. I will recommend this mask to everyone for winters and combination to dry skin in summer.

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facial Wipes

What is it? Himalaya Purifying Neem Facial Wipes are soft and non-alcoholic with a gentle formulation that mildly cleanses skin to keep it clean and healthy. Enriched with the power of Neem and Turmeric that are known for antibacterial properties, the wipes freshen skin and also help conveniently remove make-up.

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facial Wipes

Price- Rs.45 for 10 Wipes & Rs.100 for 25 Wipes

My Experience with Himalaya Herbals  Purifying Neem Facial Wipes

Packaging- These wipes are packed in a re-sealable plastic pouch. The pouch has an opening at the front to dispense the tissues. The plastic pack contains all the informative details, ingredient list, and usage guide. The packaging is very travel-friendly. It is available in two sizes; smaller pack contains 10 wipes while the bigger pack holds 25 wipes. I have purchased the bigger pack as the neem variant is favorite.

Colour & Texture- Neem facial wipes are 200x158mm soft cotton wipes. They are free from artificial colorants so they are pure white in color. They are soaked in colorless liquid but not drenched. I have used Johnson’s baby wipes before. These wipes have less cleaning liquid than Johnson’s ones. The quality of the cotton fabric is slightly gentler than the baby wipes.

Fragrance- The neem based wipes has a light medicinal yet herbal smell to it. The fragrance is a lot like the Neem face wash from Himalaya. The fragrance is mild and it stays 10-15 minutes.

Experience- Himalaya’s Neem range products suit my skin really well so I had high expectations from this wipe. Though it is not mentioned anywhere in the pack, this neem variant wipes would suit normal to oily skin best. If you have a pimple prone skin then this is the variant you should opt for. The neem wipes have been able to remove waterproof mascara, liquid lipstick, creamy lipstick, under eye concealer (as you can see in the before-after picture). I had to go over one place 5-6 times to get rid of the sticky makeup like mascara and liquid lipstick. It felt gentle enough on my facial skin. It gave a cooling feel as the liquid evaporated. The cooling effect was not like the effect provided by alcohol rich wipes. I have also tried this wipe on my oily and dirty face. It could remove the dirt without drying the skin. I would have loved it more if the wetness of the wipes were a bit more.

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facial Wipes 6

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facial Wipes 5

Pros-
  1. Gentle non-drying facial wipes
  2. Freshens up the skin
  3. Removes every type of makeup
  4. Alcohol-free formula
  5. Removes impurities from the skin
  6. Does not contain parabens or artificial colors
  7. Prevents pimples
  8. Herbal fragrance (like Himalaya Neem face wash)
  9. Value for money product
Cons-
  1. The wipes should contain more liquid
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Himalaya Purifying Neem Facial Wipes are good quality wipes for freshening up the skin as well as removing makeup. The soft and gentle wipes did not irritate my skin. I would certainly repurchase these wipes again and again. I would suggest these wipes to someone with normal to oily skin that is searching for affordable makeup remover wipes.

Engage Spell Deo Review

Who is it for? Engage Spell Deo is an amazing blend of cool ocean and floral fragrance. This would be a perfect choice for those who want hints of ice cool feel in the hot summer days.

Price- Rs.190 for 165ml
Sensitive Skin Alert?

Contains alcohol; might irritate extremely sensitized skin.

Engage Spell Deo Review

My Experience with Engage Spell Deo

Packaging

This deodorant comes in a tall cylindrical metal can of blue color. The spray dispenser is secured with the same color plastic cap. The ingredients are clearly mentioned with their respective percentages. This is a good thing since there is no hidden ingredient. Overall, the packaging looks attractive and is sturdy and easy to carry around.

Colour & Texture

It is a colorless liquid deodorant without any moisturizing or talc particles. Its texture is light and consistency is thin. It gets evaporated after application without leaving behind any residue.

Fragrance

The spell is a blend of cool ocean fragrance with amazing floral notes. The floral notes are not rosy kind; they are more of an energetic type. Floral notes are similar to the top notes of Yardley’s Country Breeze fragrance. The fragrance is not overpowering to the senses.

Ease of Application

The application process is super easy with this deodorant. You just have to apply two sprays of it to get the desired intensity of the fragrance.

Effectiveness

The fragrance is mild so it does not induce migraines for me. The top notes go off within minutes and the middle and base notes stay for around 5 hours on a humid day. After that, reapplication is needed.

My Experience

To tell you the truth, the cool ocean is not my favorite genre of fragrance still I bought this perfume just to try out. Now, this has become one of my favorites as I really like the blend of floral touches to the cool fragrance. The fragrance is energizing and gives a fresh feel. It is a good deodorant to use anytime and anywhere.

Overall Performance of Engage Spell Deo

Pros:
  1. Cool ocean fragrance with floral notes
  2. Not Overpowering
  3. Stays for a considerate amount of time
  4. Does not stain clothes
  5. Did not irritate my skin
  6. No underarm darkening issue
  7. Travel-safe packaging
  8. Affordable
Cons:
  1. Not alcohol-free
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

This is already a repurchase! I will definitely recommend this to ladies who are looking for a cool ocean fragrance with floral notes.

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVAUVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion Review 4

Biotique Bio Carrot Sunscreen Lotion: Today I am reviewing Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion. In winter we often have to attend daytime engagements like picnics, outing, etc. We need to use sun protection over our regular body moisturizers. I sometimes feel very lazy to apply two layers of product on my skin. The result is an obviously sunburnt itchy skin! I have bought the Bio Carrot sunscreen to use as a 2-in-1 sunscreen plus moisturizer. Biotique skin care products generally work for me. I have tried their toners, moisturizers and face packs but this is my first product from their sunscreen range. Let’s move to the review to find if it worked for me or not.

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVAUVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion Review 4

What is it?

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion is a nutrient-rich lotion. Blended with pure Carrot oil, extracts of Carrot seed and Lodhra bark, Quince seed and Aloe Vera this lotion keeps skin soft and moisturized in the sun. It protects skin with broad spectrum SPF 40 UVA/UVB sunscreen.

Price- Rs.115 for 50ml

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVAUVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion Review

My Experience with Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion

Packaging- This sunscreen comes in an orange color plastic squeeze tube. The tube has a flip cap of the same color. The pack has informative details mentioned in written form; no label graphics to be seen. This one comes in two sizes and I have the smallest size. The bigger size has a bottle packaging with a wide opening while this one is in the tube. If you want a hygienic packaging you should get this. Overall the packaging is quite strongly built and travel-friendly.

Colour & Texture- The sunscreen is named as ‘lotion’ but texture wise it is a cream. It has pure white color and its consistency is medium. It blends into the skin easily and does not leave behind a white cast. The consistency is perfect to be used as a face lotion for normal to dry skin but it might feel heavy on the oily skin.

Fragrance- The top note of the fragrance has an herbal grassy smell but the bottom note is mildly floral. The fragrance is not very heavy and does not last very long.

Experience- This Carrot enriched sunscreen is a very nice body sunscreen for my normal to dry body skin. It supplies some moisture to the skin along with providing sun protection. I do not have to use a body lotion if I am using this. Since it is to dry and cold now in my place, I feel the urge to nourish my body again after 4 hours or so if I am out in the cold. By that time, the sunscreen needs to be reapplied too because this sunscreen is able to take care of my sun sensitivity issue for about 4 hours in winter. I do not apply this sunscreen on my face as this creamy lotion feels a bit overly moisturizing for my combination skin. This sunscreen would certainly be unfit for the facial skin in summer.

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVAUVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion Review 2

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVAUVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion Review 3

Overall Performance of Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion

Pros-
  1. Nourishing organic formula
  2. High SPF
  3. Works nicely as body sunscreen cum moisturizer
  4. Prevent sun sensitivity for a considerable amount of time
  5. Preservative-free
Cons-
  1. Formula is too heavy as face lotion
  2. Not suitable for oily and combination skin
  3. Would not make a good sunscreen for summer
  4. Contains sunflower oil which can cause acne
  5. Fragrance is not my favorite
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Biotique Bio Carrot 40+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion is a super affordable sunscreen with high SPF. But, the formula is heavy for my facial skin. If I buy it again, it will be as my winter body moisturizer cum sun shield. I would suggest this sunscreen to someone with normal to dry skin.

Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom 1

Small size easy-to-carry deodorants and roll-on antiperspirants are being quite raved about these days. These ‘chotu packs’ are very convenient to carry and are very economical as well. Every other Indian deodorant brand has been launching its own versions of travel-size perfumes every other day. My today’s review is about such a small size perfume; Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom. Engage has recently come up with 3 variants of pocket perfumes. Sweet Blossom is one of them. Read on to find how it works.

Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom 1

Details about Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom

Engage Pocket Perfume in Sweet Blossom is a 250-spray travel-size perfume with a floral smell from the house of ITC.

Price– Rs.60 for 18ml

Shelf Life-24 months from the date of manufacturing

Sensitive Skin Alert?

No

Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom 3

Natural/Vegan/Organic?

No

My Experience with Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom

Packaging- This deodorant comes in a sleek and flat plastic container with a flattened spray nozzle. The body of the perfume pack is made concave at both sides making the pack very ergonomic. Though the pack is very small, all the important information and detailed ingredient lists are present on the backside of the pack. I must say the packaging is quite smart, sleek, convenient and leak-proof.

Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom 2

Fragrance– This pocket perfume has a distinct floral smell to it. Both the top and the bottom notes are floral with a hint of energizing sweetness. The smell is of medium intensity. It is not at all a headache-causing so it will suit everyone. The fragrance notes are very girly; most of the floral fragrance lovers like such scents. This is certainly a plus point if you are buying it without sniffing!

My Experience- I generally use it as a daily fragrance. I need 2-3 sprays per use so this 250 spray pack would last me a month or so as I alternate between fragrances. This deodorant controls body odour. It does not mix up with sweat and change into a bad odour. I have had such bad experiences with some really expensive perfumes but thankfully this one is not like them.

Staying Power- This deodorant stays more or less 3 hours on my sweaty skin. On the underarms, it stays longer. After 3 hours it becomes just a faint hint of fragrance. I have used Engage’s full-sized perfumes before and they showed similar staying power for me. That means there is no quality degradation in terms of staying power for these pocket perfumes.

Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom 4

Overall Performance of Engage Pocket Perfume Sweet Blossom

I find Engage Pocket Perfume in Sweet Blossom to be a deodorant with fresh floral fragrance which has been able to control body odour for a considerable time. There is a sweet note to the fragrance that has subtle femininity to it. The smell is not overpowering at the same time not too light. It is perfect for daytime as well as night occasions.

Pros-

  1. Sweet floral fragrance
  2. Staying power is nice
  3. Controls body odour
  4. Convenient & travel-friendly packaging
  5. Value for money product

Cons-

  1. Could not find anything other than alcohol content  🙂

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Yes! I would love to make another repurchase of Engage Pocket Perfume in Sweet Blossom. In fact, I would like to get the other two variants of this perfume as well because I loved how I smelt after using this floral perfume. I would recommend this small-sized deodorant to anyone who is on a budget or who wants to keep a small-size fragrance to their handbags to be ‘fresh smelling’ all day!

UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel SPF 50

Who is it for? UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 PA+++ is a mineral-based matte sunscreen that does not clog pores. It provides broad-spectrum sun protection. This skin-friendly sunscreen suits all skin types including sensitive skin.

UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel SPF 50

Price- Rs.658 for 50gm

How to Use

Apply generously on the exposed parts of the skin 20-30 minutes prior to sun exposure.

Sensitive Skin Alert?

No. It is a good sunscreen for sensitive skin.

My Experience with UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 PA+++

Packaging

The sunscreen comes in a white tube which is packed in the same color outer packaging. The tube has a screw cap to secure the dispensing nozzle. The packaging is very convenient to use and wastage-proof.

Colour & Texture

Though it is called a gel, it is a thick fluffy cream. It has a non-irritating silicone compound as the base. The cream once applied on the skin feels thick for a few seconds and then settles into a comfortable matte finish.  It is a mineral sunscreen so the titanium dioxide content in it creates a subtle whitish cast on the skin. After sometimes it adjusts to the skin.

Fragrance

It has a very light floral fragrance. The fragrance goes away within 5 minutes of application.

Experience

I have photosensitivity so my skin becomes red, itchy, and irritated if my skin gets exposed to the sun for just a few minutes. So, I have to use a high-SPF sunscreen. Many of the easily available chemical sunscreens have oxybenzone as the main ingredient. I have a sensitivity to this specific ingredient so I have no other way than to use physical sunscreens. These sunscreens leave behind a white cast and this one is not exception as well. This sunscreen feels very comfortable on the skin and I don’t need to do frequent re-applications as it stays put for a long. I just have to apply a thin layer of tinted BB cream over this to hide the white cast.

What do I like about this sunscreen?

  1. Very gentle on the skin
  2. Gives a completely matte finish
  3. Does not clog pores or cause acne
  4. No need to reapply frequently
  5. Does not irritate the skin and is tolerated by every skin type
  6. Dermatologist tested

What do I dislike about this sunscreen?

  1. Expensive
  2. Physical sunscreen; leaves a whitish cast on the skin

Would I Repurchase or Recommend it?

I might not buy it again as it is quite expensive. I love Neutrogena’s sunscreen. I would suggest this to extremely sensitive skin people.

Lotus Herbals NaturalGlow Skin Radiance Facial Kit

Who is it for? Lotus Herbals NaturalGlow Skin Radiance Facial Kit is a complete kit that contains 5 step facial products. This kit is best for combination to dry skin types.

Lotus Herbals NaturalGlow Skin Radiance Facial Kit

Price

Rs.625 for 4 Session Kit

Sensitive Skin Alert?

The scrub is for heavy exfoliation so this kit is not suitable for sensitive skin.

My Experience with Lotus Herbals NaturalGlow Skin Radiance Facial Kit

Packaging

This facial kit contains 4 single-use kit boxes in a big box. Though I bought the big box, the single session boxes are also available. In each box, there are 5 sachets containing cleansing milk, scrub, massage cream, face pack, and moisturizer. The packaging is very hygienic and travel-friendly.

Colour & Texture

The step 1 product, Lemonpure cleansing milk if off-white in color, and its texture is lotion-like and creamy. It is able to get rid of both water-soluble and water-proof makeup. The step 2 product is an Alpine scrub. It is a salt-based exfoliator of light orange color. Its texture is gritty. The next step product is Wheatnourish. It is a thick textured heavy massage cream. It has a white color. The 4th step, Frejuvenate is a fruit-based clay face pack. This pack looks muddy yellow and has a thick texture. The final product is a Cocoamoist moisturizer. It is a thick and creamy lotion moisturizer targeted to dry skin.

Fragrance

The Lemonpure cleansing milk has an energizing citrus fragrance. The fragrance makes me feel fresh. The Scrub has minimal fragrance. It smells of oranges. The Wheatnourish massage cream has a very soothing floral and incense kind of fragrance. This is my favorite-smelling product from the whole kit. The Frejuvenate pack has mud-like fragrance with a hint of apple in it. This is my least favorite fragrance. The Cocoamoist moisturizer has a soothing rosy fragrance. It is another one of my favorites in terms of smell.

Experience

I have tried a number of facial kits and I can surely say, this is the best of them all. Each product of this kit is effective in terms of performance. If they suit your skin then you will certainly get a long-lasting result. This is the only facial kit that could take care of my stubborn blackheads with minimal use of blackhead blackhead-removing tools. This kit provides dullness-free skin from a single use and makes the skin glow in health.

What do I like about this facial kit?
  1. Gives hydrated and glowing skin
  2. Scrub helps to get rid of dead cells and even the stubborn blackheads
  3. The result lasts 5-7 days at least
  4. Massage cream makes the skin supple
  5. Each product of the kit does its job quite nicely
  6. Reduces dullness and provides a salon-like glow
  7. Does not give burning sensations or irritation
What I dislike about this facial kit?
  1. Sachets; individual tubes would have been better
  2. Face pack does the job but smells awful
  3. Not for oily and sensitive skin
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Out of all home facial kits, this one is my all-time favorite. I have already bought it a few times and will keep buying it. I would recommend it to everyone having combination, dry or extra dry skin.

This serum comes in a yellow transparent bottle with a spray dispenser. The packaging is sturdy enough with no spillage or wastage issue.

Colour & Texture

It is a colorless liquid. The consistency is similar to light hair oils. The texture is like a dry oil. It gets soaked up immediately after application so there was no greasiness. It reminds me of Livon hair serum.

Fragrance

It has a light coconut oil fragrance that lingers for some hours. I am not a huge fan of lingering coconut fragrance in my hair so I apply this only when I am staying at home. The fragrance is very similar to this brand’s other new launch Coconut Creme Oil Pre-wash Hair Nourisher.

Experience

The packaging does not include ingredient list so there is no way to know what I am putting on my hair. From the feel of it, I can say this product has silicones in it that provides an instant smoothness to the hair and controls frizziness. It also has coconut oil kind of feel so hair looks nourished and shiny. The effect lasts half a day for my crazy frizzes so it becomes very easy to leave it open. Just a word of caution, do not use in excess to avoid awkwardly limp hair!

What do I like about this hair serum?
  1. Works well for extremely dry and frizzy hair
  2. Makes hair easy to detangle
  3. Brings shine and healthy polished look
  4. The effect lasts for a considerable amount of time
  5. The packaging looks good and is quite sturdy
What I dislike about this hair serum?
  1. Performs like Livon hair serum but costs 2 times more
  2. The ingredient list is not given a list so there is no way to know what this product is actually made up of
  3. Coconut oil smell might not be liked by everyone
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

It is a good hair serum for dry and frizz-prone hair but quantity wise the cost is higher than other serums in the market. So, I might stick to my L’Oreal Total Repair 5 serum for the moment.

Rating-2.5/5
