Hello beauties!

How is your weekend coming (oops its almost Sunday night :P).. So how was your weekend?
Mine was a pretty casual one with the regular chores :) And finally after long thoughts, I have come to a conclusion to break my laziness and come up with a regular schedule al-through the week to do mu manicures, pedicures, facials, skin care stuffs etc.

As a working woman you always get time only during the weekends to pamper yourself well. So I have started on a motive to do my facials regularly every Sunday and Manicures every Saturday. Lets see!

So now jumping on to the facial of this week, I follow all steps while doing a facial as I love to see the instant effects so much. The brightened face gives me such a peace of mind :P

Today I pulled out my Ayur Fruit face pack to do my At-Home-Facial.


Cleanser\Face wash: Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup

My take on L’Oreal Instant clear Anti Dandruff Shampoo

I have a worst dandruff problem and have been using L’Oreal Instant clear shampoo for past 1 year and thought why not review it?!

I have tough dandruff which is flaky sometimes and becomes an oily patch on my scalp sometime. The shampoo comes in a white round plastic bottle which is very thick and doesn’t break easily. It has the regular flip cap as like other shampoos but the cap is also made of thick material and it needs a little effort to open it.


Coming to the shampoo, it is a thick white liquid which needs to be diluted with water while using. You really don’t need to apply the shampoo as it is on your scalp as it is so thick in consistency. So one bottle lasts for a good time of more than 3 months when used once a week (I have long hair, and if your hair is short it might last even longer).


This shampoo helps in clearing off even the last traces of dandruff on your scalp and keep it clean and fresh. The shampoo is not as drying as like other anti-dandruff shampoos. It doesn’t make my hair rough or dry; it helps to maintain my hair’s moisture level.

Though the shampoo helps clearing dandruff instantly the results doesn’t last long – it lasts only for a week. And after a week the dandruff keeps coming again. So this doesn’t eliminate dandruff as it claims but reduces its occurrence.


Swatch:


Petals:

  • Neat and strong packaging
  • Helps keeping dandruff at bay
  • Has a mild fragrance that doesn’t affect even sensitive nose people
  • Has a thick consistency that can be diluted while using – so lasts long
  • Lathers well
  • Keeps scalp fresh and clean
  • Doesn’t dry out hair like other dandruff shampoos

Thorns:

  • Doesn’t completely eliminate dandruff
  • Bit costly but lasts long
  • Availability – can be bought only in reputed salons or online
Hello Ladies!

As you all should've known by this time, I'm a crazy fan of nail art and online shopping :)
Yes I shop online more than spending time in shopping malls, it helps to save a lot of time and money!

So I was in need on tiny nail art brushes to do strippy nail arts and for minute details. So I picked up these 3 brushes for just 0.99$ and I also saw these cute dotting tools sold by the same seller for same price :-O And yessss, I picked them too :D :D

FYI, these tools are sold at very high price here (in ebay.in they are sold for 700 or 1000 INR).


So here is a sneak peak of the tools!! Enjoy the piccys ;)














Quality: these are of wonderful quality and super comfortable to do my nail arts :)

Packaging: The Ebay.com sellers safely bubble wrap the products and put them in strong black covers so that they reach us safely. Wonderful and thoughtful packaging!!

Rating: 5 out of 5 for both the product and the site
All of a sudden I'm drooling over my own nail paint stash today :)
I feel kinda obsessed with it :D





















A few weeks back I was doing pedicure and painted my legs with a different Mani as the regular single color painting was super boring. This is a very simple mani and can be done by beginners even.

I just painted my nails with black first and painted horizontal stripes on them using a nail art brush with two different colors.

A new study conducted by Dove reveals that Indian women are missing out on some of life's most memorable moments because they are not happy with the way they look.





According to the study conducted women have a sense of anxiety about their appearance that prevents them from capturing precious memories on camera, including those of holidays, weddings or maybe a special occasion.




In response to this, Dove created a short film titled "Camera Shy" raises the question about why adult women hide from the camera. Says Srinandan Sundaram, GM, Haircare, Hindustan Univerlever Ltd, "This study shows that women, who are their own worst beauty critic, have anxiety that stops them from feeling confident in front of the camera and causes them to miss out on capturing important moments in their lives. We want that to change."

 
According to the study, three out of four women do not think that they look beautiful. Apart from this, 69 per cent of Indian women are 'camera shy' having hidden or felt self-conscious in front of the camera. Apparently 62 per cent of Indian women report that having their photo taken or uploaded online, makes them feel anxious about their looks!!” even more than meeting people for the first time or speaking in public.


To boost Women's spirit and say goodbye to a camera shy mindset, Dove Global Self-Esteem Ambassador Jess Weiner offers these tips:





  • Ban beauty-bashing comments such as “I look so fat” or “I’m having bad hair day.” Negative talk makes everyone feel anxious about their looks. The more positive affirmations you make about her own beauty, the more her self-confidence will soar.

  • Nobody is perfect. Remember that those “perfect” images of celebrities have been styled and retouched by a team of professionals from start to finish. There is no such thing as perfect beauty.
  • Women should not get caught up about how they look in a photo, but rather think about when they are 70 and remember how great it will be to have captured that time in life. 
  • Finally, Focus on Making Memories. Instead of stressing about looks in a photo, women should think about how they will FEEL when looking back 5, 10 and 50 years from now remembering the joy they had at the beach with family or the celebration shared with friends. When women focus on the type of memory being made, they will find that their face and body will relax, resulting in more natural, genuine smile and true enjoyment.
