Review of Khadi Natural Rose and Honey moisturizer

Everyone knows that how moisturization is important for every skin type. It soothes the drier parts of skin, does the emulation and even helps in providing that natural glow. Moisturization when done regularly can even prevent aging of skin. Therefore, being a skincare junkie I was on a hunt for a good moisturizing lotion and I found this Khadi Rose and Honey Moisturizer from Amazon. I have used it for 1 and a half month, and I’m all ready on reviewing it.

key ingredients and directions for use

How it worked for me: Just when I started applying on my skin, the very first thing I enjoyed about it was the texture. Its neither too thick nor too runny. Moreover it absorbs into your skin like a charm and doesn’t provide a white cast. The scent of the product is heavenly. For those people who loves rose fragrance, will love this. As time passed by, I felt it made my skin glow, soft and breakout free even though I had post acne scars they didn’t resolve. In final words, this was one of the best purchases I have ever done even my husband loves it too who is of combination skin type.

positive points

  • herbal
  • Rose Fragrance
  • Affordable
  • Texture is neither too thick nor too runny
  • Didn’t cause any breakout

negative points

  • I have to buy it from online since faridkot doesn’t sell any khadi products.

my rating: 💜💜💜💜/5

Empties #3

After a very long time, I will be posting my empties blog (yep they had gotten huge). It’s a wonderful way to write so many product reviews in one post. Now without further ado, let’s start

  • Vaadi Herbals 3 in 1 sunscreen cream spf 25: This is the product I have already reviewed it on my blog. Although it provided the white cast and took a great deal of effort in blending onto my skin. But it did work well for me. (Click here for detailed review)
  • Keya seth Aromatherapy Hair spa for dry and damaged hair: In my hair care routine post, I had showed how I used this product for my dry, frizzy hair and I must say that I absolutely adore this product. ( click here for my routine)
  • Acnes hydrating toner: The product was also reviewed on my blog (click her for detailed post) I thoroughly enjoyed using this product onto my skin. But there are other skin toners in the market I would like to try. I won’t be repurchasing it.
  • Acnes Moisturizing lotion: For an oily skinned girl, moisturization is also important despite the grease ball they become at the end of the day. Honestly speaking, there are very rare moisturizers available in the market for oily skin. This lotion worked wonders on my skin. Its amazing as it moisturized my skin without making it too oily.
  • Salveo Life sciences Anti dandruff cleanser: I don’t usually suffer from dandruff but when monsoon arrives so does my seberrhoea along with hairfall and dryness. This shampoo definitely cleared the dandruff but it didn’t cure it. I had to pair it with Ketoconazole shampoo. Although it softened my hair but hairfall didn’t reduce. Hence, I won’t be purchasing it.
  • Dove nourishing secrets healthy rituals for growing hair: I had used this shampoo and did a detailed blog post on it. (click here) oh how I desperately wanted this product to finish. It was a complete disappointment for me and I hated it.
  • Aroma musk Sesame hair oil: I had bought this product from Amazon and do I love it. I completely enjoyed it. It had no fragrance and the texture of this oil was very thick. While mixing it with castor oil, it helped in my hairfall. I just loved using it.
  • Fair and Lovely ayurvedic fairness cream: Before this product got transformed to Glow and lovely, I had bought this cream as a simple day cream since I was running short of time. Out of other Fair and lovely range, this cream worked best for me.
  • Modicare Fruit of the Earth shampoo with Henna and Jojoba oil for hairfall: Although this shampoo claimed to be ayurvedic and lathered well on my hair. I could not see much difference in terms of my hair health. I won’t be repurchasing it.
  • Boro Plus Doodh Kedar Body lotion: When it comes to this brand; we all know about its famous cream and how its meant for curing dry skin conditions. When I had bought this lotion; I was expecting the same from this product too and thank goodness it stood still to my expectations. My body even during summers act as a dry barren land without any moisturization which then follows up with itching while taking the life out of me. Thank you to Dear Lord. This product helped my skin. I loved its fragrance too and I will definitely repurchase it.
  • Dove healthy rituals for growing hair shampoo: I have done a separate post of it on my blog and I would highly avoid this product.
  • Lotus Herbals Safe sun sunblock cream spf 20 PA+ : I completely adore this sunscreen. Its sweat as well as waterproof. It has never broken out on me and it blends into my skin like a charm. I will definitely repurchase it.
  • Lotus Herbals Phyto Rx Intensive anti aging serum: One of the first serums I’ve bought from our Indian market ( yep, I’ve started using face serums in my late 20s). The texture of this serum is neither too thick nor too runny. The fragrance is mild and a little goes a long way. It didn’t broke out on me but I found it to be decent.it just couldn’t shake me and wonder about benefits of applying face serums. Hence I will not be buying it.
  • Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Cleansing milk: This cleansing milk does equally better job as compared to Ayur deep pore cleansing milk. Both of them are herbal and they don’t irritate my skin. I love it.
  • Himalaya Herbals Neem Face wash: My HG neem face washes available in the market. Although my skin can never be acne free, but when I have severe breakout and I lose track of all the skincare products working for me or not. Then I start using it and it never Disappointed me.
  • Good Vibes activated charcoal deep cleansing mask: This face pack is reviewed separately on my blog and I thoroughly enjoyed using it.
  • Patanjali Aloe Vera gel: An aloe vera gel has millions of uses. I have tried it for my skin, body and hair as well. It works wonders ( ofcourse I won’t be purchasing from this brand since I’m a doctor and I now personally don’t want to endorse it).
  • Jiva Ayurveda Neem Face wash: Final empty in my blog post. I have tried various products from this skincare brand and my experience so far has been great. I have reviewed this product in detail in my Instagram blog. I have enjoyed using it and would definitely recommend it.

So Thank you people for staying till end with me. I hope these mini reviews will help you, guide you in trying out these products.

See you guys in my next post ❤💛

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks Book Review

Nicholas Sparks, The writer whom I first fell in love with when I had read his nove ‘A walk to remember’. Since then I have always admired his works. Even when I would pick any of his work, I will start expecting the best. I think the bar was set too high for his novels, since this time my expectations did hurt.

The story revolves around a girl Denise, a single mother who along with his specially abled son Kyle got transferred back to their native place. There she meets up Taylor who despite being undeniably attracted to her couldn’t open himself to Denise’s love.

The novel initially started with full of promising twists and turns and even though the pace of the story was also good yet when I dug deeper into the story, it felt more boring. For the first time ever, I felt the worst part of reading slump in my entire life.

In final words; the ending was predictable and the story also wasn’t engaging enough for me.

My ratings would be: 3/5.

Hope to see you soon in my next post. ❤

Wow Skin Science Ubtan Foaming Face wash Review

I had been extremely busy with this COVID 19 situation going on. Because of which my lack of consistency of the blog posts shifted my attention of doing duties and now to the most awaited review of my blog.

Yes I know that this brand Wow Skin Science has been extremely popular and I wasn’t keen in trying the brand. ( no particular reason or any hate attached). But times have changed and so did my intentions in wanting to use their products.

For more of their product catalog and about the brand one can click here [ They even have app available play store ]

My take on the product, whether it worked or not: Packaging of the product is leak proof and it comes with an applicator brush. One needs to pump the product and foam will come out through the applicator and then the cleaning brush is used on the face. This face wash along with the help of cleansing brush really does cleanses out skin and resultant after effects are glowy and less greasy skin.

I used this face wash 2 times a day and the bristles were so smooth that even using 2 times, I didn’t find the face wash hard or rough on my skin. I clearly enjoyed using this product. The only downside of the product I felt that it didn’t cure my acne, although it didn’t aggravate them since I was using cleansing brush but the acne was persistent. So it won’t be the best bet for cystic acne prone people like me.

Overall its a decent product and I would highly recommend it to normal, dry, combination or even oily skinned girls only excluding the very oily skinned girls from the list.

Positive points: true to its claims; easily available; refill pack is available from its website; environment friendly; cruelty free, effectively cleans out the skin.

Negative points: not for cystic acne sufferers.

My ratings: ❤❤❤❤/5

Will I repurchase? I can’t. Even though I’m in my late 20s, my cystic acne is hormonal and very severe, I just cannot for the life of me use this product. ( yes me being theatrical over my acne).

So guys thank you for staying till end. See you soon in my next post.

Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Pimple Curative oil Review

A person with oily skin or with hormonal acne tends to try products from various brands just to treat their stubborn acne just like me. My skin is oily, prone to cystic hormonal acne and at times the acne severity is enough to lose my expectations for any product. However I love to try various skincare products and therefore I was intrigued in trying from our brand BLossom Kochar Aroma Magic.

This brand has been an age old tried and tested brand since many years and is loved by many. From the brand, I had bought this Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Pimple curative oil and did it work on me. Let’s see..

My take on the product: The product comes in a leak proof bottle but its made up of glass. Hence its breakable. The texture of the product is just an oily kind which needs to be applied just like one would apply a facial oil. The scent is also not too overwhelming. Moreover Blossom Kochhar’s products acted as a pioneer in aromatherapy, therefore their fragrance never were a problem. After applying this oil, I would follow it up with a night cream or a retinol cream. The oil felt not too greasy and got completely absorbed in my skin. For 20ml, it price ranges to 300₹

It claims in treating and preventing the pimples and for that this product not at all helps. It also helps in balancing out the oil secretion which I feel is right since my face has been looking less greasy the next day. Overall I’m not satisfied with this facial and won’t be purchasing it.

Positive Points

  • balances out the oil secretion
  • Herbal

Negative Points

  • not at all helps in treating or even clearing out the acne.

Thank you guys for reading till end. Hope to see you seen in my next post.

Ways to overcome this long overdue stress in COVID-19.

Hello my Readers, Hope you all have been doing great. I apologize for not being consistent on my blog since this COVID-19 has created a havoc on my mental health.

So anyways, in search of avoiding mental stress I wanted to personally share some of the things I’m doing.

  • Practicing meditation: Yes you people heard it right. If you have been a long term reader on my blog, you might be knowing that I suffer from anxiety. Although the panic attacks subsided one and a half year back, my anxiety crept again 2 months back (ofcourse the reason) and because I can’t do the usual meditation, I’ve started practicing writing meditation which is called as Likhita japa. More about it when you will click on the link provided. I’ve bought a book from Amazon where in that book I would have to write name of any spiritual diety I follow for 108 times a day. I know I’m a God fearer and being a hindu. I worship Lord Shiva. So I would follow this ritual during night time since it calms down my nerves. Moreover there is a very beautiful way to discard these pages. Do try this and let me know🙂

  • Skin care: you know when you take care of yourself, it means that you love yourself. And therefore its important to take some time and follow 10 min routine or even just 3 minute one at AM and PM.
  • Following your passion: when your passion equals to the job you are being assigned to, it can somwtimes get extremely exhausting as well such as a being a doctor during these COVID 19times. Therefore it is very important to learn new hobbies. You can try nail art if you have always loved nail paints, once in awhile reading a good book may not hurt, sometimes one can journal too and sharing creating some good memories through photography and scrapbooking. When you look outside, you will find numerous options.
  • Attitude is everything: It can change you or either break you. Having a positive mindset during these times is a tough job but one needs to train his mind to conquer this negativity inside of him.
  • Spending time with family and friends: When you have special people to talk to and spend time with; life becomes so much easier and less stressful. You feel loved because that’s what you deserve and this is what COVID-19 is costing us. Its teaching us how relations and health is the most priceless jewel of all.

Therefore my dears, COVID-19 is a disease, a tsunami which has caused our lives to turn upside down. But it is in our hands to stand at its feet to defeat it while we keep being strong.

COVID-19 -a disease; a sickness taking lives of many; leaving people being deprived of their loved ones. We need to fight it and become robusty. As dealing with it requires a huge surprise.

Shahnaz Husain ShaClear plus Anti pimple lotion Review

Shahnaz Husain ShaClear Anti pimple lotion

Have you ever wondered why most of the people with oily skin loves using calamine into their skin routine? Because it relieves itching, helps in healing and also dries out the acne. Its actually quite beneficial. For the centuries, I have been spending my money into Lacto Calamine skin lotion which is by far one of the best I’ve used.

As I am always in a hunt for new products and Shahnaz Husain’s products have always intrigued me despite being the heavier on the prices side. I will review this dude out there I.e. Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Anti pimple lotion.

◇ First of all the packaging, its opaque. One cannot see how much the product is left. Then the cap, it fits properly but falls off soon and when you take out the product, it spills all over.

◇ Scent is rose kind. Its not too Overpowering for sensitive noses.

◇ Texture: of the product is extremely runny. You have to shake the bottle every time you use it.

◇ after effects and claims: It dries out the skin. Hence its best to be used in summers. Okay now to the claim part, its actually extremely disappointing product. Yup you heard it right. Apart from drying my skin out, it doesn’t do anything and just because its extremely expensive I’m trying to complete it as fast as possible.

My ratings: 1/5.

Will I recommend: Ofcourse never.

Thank you for reading till end. See you soon.

Deyga Tea tree toner and Acne Control face pack Review

Skin toners are used in the skincare regimen which is followed by cleansing. These toners balance out the ph of the skin and help in tightening of pores.

For the reason, I incorporated this skin toner from the brand Deyga into my skincare regimen. Along with I had also included the face pack from the same brand. Deyga Organics is originated from Tamil Nadu, India and they claim to be 100% natural. For more information, please click on the link. (Deyga.in)

**These products I had received from the brand, but opinions are 100% honest.

Key ingredients and claims

My take on both the products

Deyga tea tree toner: I’ve used this product as spray mist on my face and also by applying it with the cotton ball. The packaging is 100% travel friendly and scent of the product is also not too overpowering. I enjoyed using this product. Although my acne is hormonal and I didn’t expect them to disappear. This toner didn’t precipitate them. I loved using it. In final words, I highly recommend this product.

Deyga Acne Control Face pack: This face pack is to be prepared either by mixing it with Deyga tea tree toner or simple water. While creating a paste, it is then kept on the face for about 20 min. When I had mixed it with toner, my acne got aggravated. But when I had mixed it with water and used it on daily basis. It didn’t aggravate them, while it soothed my acne. Hence, for this product to work I guess I required some manipulation. But overall, I thoroughly enjoyed using this.

Positive points: Toner and face pack both worked well, herbal

Negative points: Only available online.

Thank you Deyga Organics for sending me these products to try. I loved using them although I Apologize for not being able to review them as early as possible.

See you guys in my next post.

Review of Kaya youth Hydro Replenish Ultimate Hydration sleeping pack

For the first time I wished to try the sleeping face masks. Ofcourse for a hormonal cystic acne prone like me, it can be a demonic experience. But I ( as a skincare junkie couldn’t control, so I had to try from this famous brand Kaya Youth) For more info, you can click on the link.

Sleeping face masks are to be applied just like a night cream and it is required to be kept for overnight. Although it acts as a night cream, it cannot be applied on daily basis for it can be exceptionally stronger than the usual night cream. Hence its advised for these masks to be used on alternate basis.

Key ingredients and claims

Did I enjoy this product, let’s see: First and foremost I adore the packaging. For the product and its claims, It does look pricey. But when it comes to night skin care, almost all products are slightly more expensive than the day skincare products. The scent of this leave on mask takes you to other world ( yes, I know I always become over dramatic). Hence sensitive noses you have to keep that in mind when buying the product. The texture is equivalent to a cream & one can apply it after just like we follow a night routine. Its extremely hydrating. The best part about this leave on mask is that its after effects are amazing. This product will provide boon to dry dehydrated skin. So, do I love it? Yes I do.

Pros

  • True to its claims
  • Fragrance is extremely soothing
  • It provides that heavenly glow
  • Best for dry, dehydrated skin
  • For PCOD acne, one can use it as it didnt cause acne in fact it calmed down the existing ones.

Cons

  • Not easily available, had to go through online.
  • Not affordable

My rating:❤❤❤❤.5/5 (4.5/5)

In final words, I highly recommend this beauty. You can buy it from their website or from Flipkart, links are provided.

Trying to learn…

Whenever I feel like I’m starting to overcome a very important phase in my life, I should let myself deal with it. I should try to make peace with it. Right. But then why am I not able to do it?

There is this dark grey cloud of expectations of people hanging above me, which can any time rained down ruining my personal experience. People are emotional vampires but at the same time, I dont want to please them. Without pleasing anyone in return, I want to perform extremely well. Yet at the same time, its getting harder every day.

My in charge praised me one day, now I feel like I’m disappointing him. It hurts so much. How can I overcome this. Then I decided to try to learn something such as trying to learn to be patient and not being in a hurry.

On pinterest I found out that, the easiest way can be where I will try for mindfulness technique then pausing to learn to think before speaking. I hope these things might help because I know there will come a day when my shortcomings will get the better of me.
