Bio organic and natural aloe vera gel review

Heya !!

To be honest,Sunday is the day when I am the laziest and I ignore my skincare and haircare so that I get to sleep.But my swimming lessons in the early morning,even on the weekends is robbing me off my sleep.:-( I took a pledge today that health is first priority so I am limiting my sleep to 6 hours daily.That means no more late night TV shows. (Sorry Orphan Black!Find yourself another fan. :-P)

I did a hairspa at home on my smoothened hair.No! I didn’t use the expensive Loreal range on my hair,rather I looted my kitchen. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s just a strategy of the salons to make you buy their products,scaring you into believing that smoothening will go away if any other product is used. Bleh!Don’t get fooled.Read articles on the net,and you will know why I am saying this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enough rambling!I was sent this gel from the BON team for review purposes and after a month’s usage,I am ready to share my opinions. ๐Ÿ™‚

Price: INR 119 for 100g which is dirt cheap. ๐Ÿ™‚

Availibility: Currently they are taking orders only through their site. You will numerous ranges-Skincare,haircare,home,pets etc.

Texture: This one won my heart truly. Earlier I used to apply Patanjali aloe vera gel but after using this,I am changing my staple gel to BON aloe vera gel.This gel doesn’t contain artificial colouring agent like in Patanjali.Also,this is very light and glides easily on the skin.You need 5 dots on your face to cover it completely.Skin absorbs it right away.

Packaging: Plastic transparent jar with a white screwed cap.This also got a dent on its side and a slight leakage due to shipping. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So may not be travel friendly.Overall simple packaging which I love the most.

Fragrance: No

My views: I use this once a day after my bath.After applying the toner,I dot my face with this and its gone instantly.This gel is sufficient in moisturising my combination skin and I am ready to go outside with a sunscreen on top of this.I used this on my trip to Kashmir where its chilly.There also this baby survived the test.So for normal,oily and combination skin,this will work all year round.Dry skin beauties may need to add moisturizer after applying this gel.

I have sensitive skin,so after applying this,I didn’t find anything wrong .No redness or tingling feeling.Infact it cools down my skin and reduces the redness.However,do conduct a patch test first.

Heya Everyone!!!

I was having a boring day at the office when my phone buzzed.I checked my notifications and instantly my mood got brightened because for the first time,I have been nominated for ‘The Liebster Award’ by none other than the beautifulย Roshnimistry. Thank you so much!!! You really made my day today. :-* She is a very talented blogger ,so you should definitely head over to her siteย ย .

The concept of Liebster award is based solely on the purpose of bringing all the bloggers closer so that emerging bloggers can find a niche in this hugely popular social medium and can share their views more widely. ๐Ÿ™‚ This award acts as a booster for the upcoming bloggers.

As the ritual,anyone nominated for this award has to answer questions which is the fun part.Really! So here it goes.

1. Why did you start your blog?ย 

I was fascinated by the many beauty blogs and youtube channels.But none of them catered to my specific problem.Infact I am sure,there are many girls who are suffering from eczema,a skin allergic condition.We girls are always on the lookout of products which are budgety,doesn’t harm our skin and doesn’t flare up our eczema.In India,I didn’t find a single blog which can help me or someone regarding this and so I decided to be a guinea pig for this project. ๐Ÿ˜› Moreover,I consider myself to be a writer.So,I started this blog sharing my reviews on products which suit the sensitive eczema prone skin and hope,I am able to benefit some girls out there.

2. Where is your favorite place in the world?

Hmmn! ย I have a bucket list and till now haven’t started on it yet.Anyway,my favourite place till now is Kashmir,India.We visited this May and it is rightfully said ‘Jannat-E-Kashmir’ because it really looks like Heaven.It is a plethora of flora,icepeaks,lakes,rivers and meadows.Its cuisine is ‘Mashallah’ and you will fall in love with the Pashmina shawls.My parents literally enjoyed every bit and desired to visit again,me included. ๐Ÿ˜›

3. What is your favorite animal?

Doggy! Yes!I am talking like a kid but till date,I exclaim like this when I see a pup. ๐Ÿ˜€ I just love dogs too much.Sadly! my parents didn’t approve keeping a pet but I go gaga when I get to play withย them in my relative’s or friend’s home.Also,they make me happy and cheery.

4. Who is your biggest inspiration in life?

My father.He is the most practical person,believes in my dreams and motivates me.Also,he supports me in every tricky situation and shows me the way whenever I am stuck.

5. Pancakes or Waffles?

Pancakes because I haven’t tasted waffles at all. ๐Ÿ˜› I am weird,I know.

6. What is your biggest achievement thus far?

Getting employed in a sector which I desired. Also recently I received an offer from an International clothing company to feature my looks matching their clothing line.Isn’t that great? ๐Ÿ™‚

7. What is one beauty product that you cannot live without?

Eyepencils!!!! I am addicted to coloured eyeliners.My go to product when I step out of home.

8. What is your dream job?

To be an effective blogger so that one day I get the opportunity to meet all my followers and interact with them. ๐Ÿ™‚

9. What is your biggest accomplishment to date?

Isn’t Q6 and Q9 similar? Bleh! I am lazy .I can’t type again. ๐Ÿ˜›

10. If someone was interested in becoming a blogger what would your key tips be?

Girl! Beleive in yourself and try to be regular.

Always voice honest opinions no matter whether the brand has paid you or given you big samples.

Now my turn to nominate.

Blue Heaven Expression lipsticks review

Heya!

The heat in Delhi is getting unbearable,specially when it becomes the humid kind. :-\ I am eagerly waiting for the monsoons.I came back from my office bearing this furnace environment.Yes! In India,we don’t have everything centrally air conditioned.I travel by public transport-the bus(usually I prefer the AC one) and a shared auto,where the driver crams up to 8 people in a seating area of 6.I drive occasionally. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But my mood got uplifted when I got all my parcels today from Flipkart and Jabong.com.I had ordered 3 lipsticks from Blue Heaven brand having shades from the red and maroon family.I love these shades and they complement my skin.

Price: INR 105 for 4g which I find reasonable for the quality and quantity.

Availability: Easily available in the drug stores and online.Yes! Internationally also.I did see them on Ebay.com.

Texture: It’s neither matte nor glossy.Glides easily on the lips.When I first applied it,I found it less smooth.But later,it was easy to apply.

Packaging: Comes in a paper box.The lipstick packaging is sassy.It is golden plastic and sturdy to carry around in your purse.

My views:I bought 3 shades namely Cherry red which is dark red with pinkish undertones but its lipstick bullet looks bright red(R002),mocha magic which is wine coloured lipstick(M020) and iced cocoa which is lighter version of M020 or lavender coloured lipstick(CB028).I found minute shimmers in mocha magic and iced cocoa but they didn’t appear loud on the lips. If you are on the budget,go for this.For the money you will pay,this is worth it.It keeps the lips moisturized and has a sheen to it.Color payoff is good.Stays on the lips for 4-5 hours and leaves a beautiful tint on the lips.It is budgety and travel friendly.Also,they have many shades.
For removing the lipsticks,I first used a dry cotton and it easily took most of the color away in 1-2 swipes.That means,you can easily remove them with a remover in one swipe only.

Bomb cosmetics pedicure,Ziffi app and Naturals salon review

Hello Girls and Women all around!

For the first time,I gathered my courage to go for a pedicure as I have always been shy of showing my tanned and weird little finger nail to the world.My little finger toenail is hereditary and has a 3D feel to it. ๐Ÿ˜› Sorry,don’t know how to explain it.

So,where was I ? ๐Ÿ˜€ My friend told me about an app,available on the Playstore only for android phones,from where one can book salon or spa appointments,go for medical tests and opt for doctors’ appointments too. When you download the app,you will be credited 600 INR and on applying friend’s referral code or promo code on installing,you will get additional 200 INR. Currently,this app only exists in India. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So using the 800 bucks,you can opt for any service.I decided to use it for a pedicure spa as shown in the menu of the app for ย Naturals salon nearby.

After booking the appointment,I decided to confirm it so that I didn’t have to pay over there which happens in many cases where the salons don’t authenticate the apps existence.It was confirmed.Also I got a mail and a call from Ziffi to confirm my appointment.When I went to the salon,they said they don’t have pedicure spa and instead wanted me to go for pedicure and manicure.I said I will go for pedicure only.They had many options and suggested me 650 INR pedicure and normal waxing full legs so total came around 820 INR.I agreed.

But my beautician over there told me I don’t need waxing at the moment and instead I can opt for higher version of Pedicure,so I chose Bomb cosmetics as it attracted me and also I wanted to review it.I was told it is 1000 bucks and I agreed for it as it involved shelling out only 200 bucks from my part.Total came out to be 1000 bucks plus 320 bucks taxes.I didn’t like the taxes part because they should have told me beforehand.So I found it unprofessional. :-\ Anyway,I was impressed with the pedicure but I won’t be going again to Naturals as they are charging more,I felt.

I dipped my feet in the bubbling lukewarm water.My beautician crushed the bath bomb which is incredibly cute muffin shaped. โค She applied body butters,shower gel,cuticle cream and cleaner,wax from the burning candle which didn’t feel hot at all and was oily and a feet mask.Lastly,she applied a nailpaint.The entire process took 1 hour and was very relaxing.I did notice my tanning got reduced and my feet appeared radiant and clean.It imparted softness too and entire process involved delicious fragnances. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Bomb cosmetics isn’t available in India at the moment but abroad it is easily available online atleast.It is a UK brand and deals with handmade and natural bath and body products.To know or buy ,head onto their site below.I coulnd’t find their delivery locations sadly. :-\

http://bombcosmetics.co.uk/

Overall verdict- Ziffi app is real and one must try it.When you are getting the options for different salons or doctors,do check whether ‘wallet payment available’ is written otherwise you cannot avail 800 bucks of the Ziffi service.The ones which don’t have this line written ,means they don’t provide any services through Ziffi. Ziffi app is basically giving you any service for free for the first time.Their interface and ease of usage is remarkable.

Naturals salon provides good services and their ambiance and quality of products are good but they need to clear out their rates in advance so that the customer doesn’t feel duped .

Bomb cosmetics is a luxury brand so try it once atleast. ๐Ÿ™‚

Bio organic & natural(BON) aloevera cinnamon orange gel review

Hey lovelies!

You know how much I love Aloe vera and its products. In fact after knowing its numerous benefits,I prioritized its presence in my beauty stack. Also,anything organic is my beloved. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I am going to review one such related product sent to me as a sample by the BON team.I promised them of an honest review and so here I am after a month of usage.

Firstly,their products are all handcrafted and use organic ingredients only.Also,they have variety of products ranging from skin care,hair care to pets,mom & baby.If you want to know more about them,here’s the link.

http://bonorganics.com/home/

Availability- Currently they are operating only through their website and cater to 34 countries including India. ๐Ÿ™‚ So availability is not an issue.

Price- INR 150 for 100g and INR 290 for 200g which I find reasonable.Shipping costs are additional.

Packaging- Plastic transparent tub with a white lid screwed on top.There’s a label on the topside and on the side . It is a simple packaging but prone to dents during shipping which happened in my case. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Also,some of the product got leaked. So,may not be travel friendly.

Texture & Smell-It is an orange gel having faint orangish smell.The gel is very lightweight and gets easily absorbed into the skin.

Ingredients-Picture attached below.

My views- It claimsย beautification, fairness enhancement and its ability to freshen, which also tones and softens the skin.Frequent use prevents chapping, drying, wrinkling or cracking of the skin. Bedtime use prevents premature ageing of the skin.

After using it,I did find my skin to be soft and my dry patches are moisturised.Since I use it at night,I find my face glows when I wake up in the morning.It immediately imparts a brightening effect to the face on application.I don’t have open pores that much so can’t comment on its toning effect but when I apply it,it has a cooling effect on the skin.

I follow the 5-dot rule when applying it and little goes a long way.The gel is easy to blend into the skin and doesn’t make the skin oily.It is good to use in summers but for winters ,a heavy moisturiser maybe required afterwards.So this is good for normal,oily and combination skin.Dry skinned beauties may need additional moisturiser.It didn’t affect my sensitive skin so for me this worked,but do test it before in small quantity on your face if you have sensitive issues.

Overall verdict 4/5 due to packaging.I am loving this product and have included in my routine. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you want to buy it,follow the given link.

http://bonorganics.com/shop/product-categories-6/aloe-vera-with-orange-cinnamon/

PS: Due to a packing tape,my label got destroyed in the process of removing the tape so I couldn’t figure out the expiry date. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ BON team,if you are reading this,do let me know about its expiry. ๐Ÿ™‚
