The Mystery is now Over :)

An International Brand had sent a new range of products that include a Shampoo and Conditioner. The name was not revealed. It was a blind test to find out what and how the products are. The reviews of it have been posted in my previous posts, here and here. The mystery is now over. Its none other than 'Garnier Fructis Long And Strong.'


So, would I recommend the Shampoo and Conditioner to others - Of course, Yes !

If you're still searching for a shampoo and conditioner that won't make your hair feel dry and fragile then Garnier can be your best bet. It works so well you'll never want to stop using it - at least not for now! Well, that’s my honest review and sure enough it worked really well on my hair. It also should be ideal for most 
hair types.

Well, another surprise . I received yet another courier from Garnier presenting 2 big wonderful bottles of Shampoo and Conditioner along with this lovely brush as a 'token of thanks,' for taking the blind tes


Thank You  GARNIER for the great products and the lovely brush :)

The Final Review of Love Long Hair - Blind Test :)

If you have been following my posts of late, you will know that I am on a hunt to find the name of the shampoo and conditioner that was sent to me a couple of days back - well, its a blind test by an International brand to find out how the products feel without the name being revealed.  So far so good - the new range of products are sure great :)

My mom wanted to color her hair black today. So I was thinking why not ask her to try this new range of products. Well, applying the color ( the black dye ) was a tedious job though.  Unfortunately the pack ( on the dye ) says it’s not essential to use a shampoo after coloring. I however wanted mom to try out the shampoo and conditioner to see the effects. She wanted a mild shampoo as it wasn’t essential to wash her hair with one after coloring. Needless to say, this product is a gentle shampoo. However, the only aspect is that in order to get the lather, we’ll have to use it 2 to 3 times. But it was perfect for her as she didn’t want it to be strong.  
The Result : Mom liked it :)
So which brand is this ??? Ahhhh.....


Now for my review – I have been using the shampoo and conditioner for the past couple of days. As mentioned in my earlier posts, since I am going through the post pregnancy phase, hair loss is something that I have to cope with.  Surprisingly with this new range of products, I feel that the hair fall has reduced to an extent.  My tresses feel silky and smooth too.  Do you want to know which brand is it ? Well, not so soon…and, "yes, will not keep you on wait for long too," says the International brand.

Till then - as always, keep guessing :)

Blind Test - 'Love Long Hair,' Review


Remember my last post, the products that we are yet to find out-well, as of now it’s called, ‘Love Long Hair,’ I used the shampoo and conditioner; two washes are in fact done. Here is my review on it.

My little one generally fidgets with my hair when I carry him and this time with the new range of shampoo and conditioner, it was almost like him asking me- mamma, I can smell something new.  Well, I guess he loves the products too.

Generally I oil my hair the previous night before a wash.  If time permits, I wrap a warm towel an hour before my wash just to make sure the oil is absorbed well.  And, when you shampoo the hair later, the tresses would  feel soft, silky and shiny- I’m sure many of us have experienced that.  Now, having used, ‘Love Long Hair,’ products, the effect is sure great. By God’s grace I’m blessed with great hair, so I really do not have to go out of way to take good care of it. And, needless to say this new range of products makes me feel like my hair is been taken care for ever. 


Next was to experiment the same without oil.  The effect was not as great as it was with oil. Nonetheless, it was good.  In my experience, I feel to make good use of this new range of shampoo and conditioner, its best to lubricate the hair before a wash. 


The shampoo feels great. I did not feel any kind of residue which is the usual norm with most shampoos. The fragrance is mild and pleasant on the hair; hence I assume that it’s skin friendly. I did not feel the dryness and felt that my hair was super hydrated. In addition, it gives some volume too.

Well, I am going to try this again for a couple of washes and will get back to you on the review. By the way, we were said, that the brand for these anonymous products will be revealed the following week – Now, I can’t wait to know which brand is this. Until then, we still have to keep the guesses going!

Blind Test - 'Love Long Hair,'


Hair loss has been one of the biggest issues that I’ve been going through of late – well, it’s just those post pregnancy woes. As in everything else, motherhood comes in a package – sleepless nights, the outburst of acne’s, hair fall etc. However, nothing is as great as motherhood :)

Coming to the point, I have been approached by an International brand about trying to test one of their ranges of shampoo and conditioner.  I have however been on the lookout for a new shampoo and conditioner and this is more or less the right time for some experiment.

When I received the pack, my first guess was which brand could this be?  I tried looking at the bottles from all angles if the name of brand was secretly embedded anywhere. But no! As of now, it’s named as, ‘Love Long Hair.’

These are the products that I received. Plain white ones, with just a dainty little sticker of ‘love Long Hair,’ – no price tag, no name, no clue about the ingredients –  a fully fledged blind test ! But I am quite excited to try it !



The smell is great though and not too thick or too runny. I’m thinking of experimenting the merchandise in a couple of ways. Since I have a dry scalp, dry shampoos make me go crazy. Hence, I am really looking forward to try this with and without oil on my hair. The reviews for the same will be posted after 2 washes. I somehow have a feeling that these products are going to be great. Meanwhile, if you can guess which brand is this, then drop me a message...wink wink :) :)

Until then keep the guesses going – the same goes for me too !

L’oreal Paris’s Kajal Magique Review

 L’oreal Paris’s Kajal Magique with Aishwarya Rai endorsing it? My impression – that seems great, but I’m sure it will not be within my budget, so forget it. But guess what, I couldn’t believe the price – very economical indeed.
Perhaps, I do have to compromise on other aspects, right? Well, not at all –apart from the price being easy on the pocket it’s sure a thing to bet on.

·         What the pack claims: Supreme Black: A new generation formula! Powdered with mineral pigments for deep intense color.
My View:  It’s perfect for the new generation. Its sleek appearance is quite a ‘show off’. As I’m in the fashion industry, I feel it’s a perfect kajal that I can proudly take off my handbag to prove the fashionista in me…he he he! The combination of black and hot pink adds to the glamour. I can easily stuff it in my mobile case or my jeans pocket.

·         What the pack claims: Extraordinary Care: Kajal Magique is formulated with care ingredients and gives a soothing feeling. Enriched with Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil Esters and Vitamin C derivative.
My View:  It does give a soothing feeling. I personally did not feel any irritation or discomfort. Considering the fact that I use contact lens, this is one product that I can use with no hesitation. And, a big thumbs up for it being completely fragrance free. 



·         What the pack claims: Magical Result – Eyeliner & Kajal ! – To use draw a precise stroke along your waterline. Add a bold stroke on the upper lid to complete the look
My View: I generally use kajal mostly on my waterline, and it did serve the purpose quite well. The only disappointment is that I have to draw in more strokes to make it appear darker. But the end result is tremendous. From precise to bold, you can literally play with it. What’s more is that it’s quite convenient to use.  

·         What the pack claims: Designed to last for up to 12 hours, Kajal Magique is smudge proof, waterproof and non-transferable.
My View: Well, again a small disappointment here. After around 8 hours or so, it starts to become slightly faint. So if need be, we might have to give another touch-up. But nonetheless, as in my opinion eight hours is really good for me. I haven’t come across any kajal that lasts for more than six hours (without becoming faint).

The Price: The product is priced at Rs. 245 and is available across all L’OrĂ©al Paris boutiques and counters.
 
P:S  What’s more is that, Katrina Kaif is the new L'Oreal Paris spokesperson. She joins Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto as the fourth Indian face of the brand.  When the best of B’ town beauties are crowding to endorse the brand, need we need more reason to celebrate it? 


                                                             The End Result

          Grab the Black Beauty- ‘Because You’re Worth it.’

Five Great Ways to Reuse Old Saris

Indian fabrics are always known for its richness and color and one such item that creates magic is the ‘magnificent sari,’  Saris can not only be worn in different forms but also used for a variety of purposes from scarves to home furnishings – name it and it’s there!
Here are five ravishing ways on how saris can be re purposed or recycled – with little or no sewing!

 

As Gift Wrappers:

 

Save Mother Earth!  It is said that millions of papers, plastic and shopping bags are literally thrown away during holiday seasons.  Why don’t we do our bit to save our planet? Well, here is a solution – old saris as gift wrappers.  It’s not only unique but Eco-friendly too.  Trust me, you’ll love it !

As Cushions and Curtains:

 

You don’t need any expensive furniture or fixings – these cushions, drapes and curtains made out of old saris can instantly lift up an otherwise boring room. A basic knowledge on sewing is enough to make cushions or draperies and curtains. If not, you can always get the help of a seamstress to get it done.

As Scarves: 

 

This is one of my personal favorite. Chiffon Saris have a wonderful fall and they are great to make some trendy scarves.  A single sari can be used to make several scarves. These can be given as gift to your friends or perhaps as some humble gifts for the girls in the orphanages.

As Wall Art:

 

Saris make amazing wall art.  Take the most attractive part of the sari and frame it – tada, you have a beautiful wall art. It appears like it’s worth a million dollars but it’s quite easy on the pocket.

Saris used in the following methods are a great way to personalize your bed.  A little bit of creativity in draping is suffice to bring in the warmth to the bedroom.  And, what’s more is that it doesn’t require any sewing.
