DIY

Helloo How are you all doing? As much as i wish to write here, there are few things that are coming in the way. I am working on those and I am sure I would be in the right state of mind and write here often. I am trying to do small posts and share effective DIY’s with you all.

Today’s DIY is another Ayurvedic remedy. This is to stay away from all the skin problems and odour free this summer. Add half a lemon and some salt ( Preferably Rock salt) to your bath. Salt removes all the dirt and lemon removes the tan and keeps you fresh. Go ahead and enjoy your citrusy fresh bath.

By the way, this summer instead of long cold showers, use a Pail/bucket for bathing to save water.

I still come online and browse sometimes. So please check out the blog and do talk to me through your comments. Your support means alot to me.

Dandruff Free recipe – DIY

mademoiselle+jules+lemon+coconut+oil

Today I am posting another DIY Which is super easy and shows amazing results. The climate transition made my scalp revolt causing dandruff. I was advised “The best thing to get rid of dandruff is to stay stress free”. Stress free !!!!?. I have like 5 strands on my head and there is dandruff and you asking me to stay stress free. I wanted to try the natural ways to get rid of it, as dandruff shampoos are filled with chemicals and I don’t want to lose those 5 strands too. I tried Methi/Fenugreek pack, curd packs. Finally I gave in to the shampoo, but they didnt help the problem much either.

Recently I came across this booklet of Ayurvedic medicine (Medical science of Ancient India ) . This is written by Panditha Maharshi Elchuri, I am sure if you are from Andhra Pradesh you would have definitely heard of him. Today’s Post is one of his recipes.

You just need 2 ingredients for this

Good Quality Coconut oil

Lemons

For Half a kg 500 gms of coconut oil you need 5 medium sized lemons. Extract the juice from the lemons and mix it with coconut oil. Put this on low flame and let it boil till only the oil is left.Cool it and strain and pour it in a clean bottle.

How to Use it:

Every day morning or Evening apply this oil on scalp and use any herbal hair wash powder or shampoo. Do not oil your hair again after the wash.

On regular use you will see the results in few days itself. It claims to get rid of dandruff, lice, itchy scalp, hair fall and make hair black.

My Verdict :

It s been 3 days since I started using this recipe. Though My dandruff is not gone completely, i can feel its lessened and no itchy scalp. The bonus, my hair looks super shiny and healthy.

I am also using the shampoo, mentioned in the booklet. The ingredients are a bit difficult to find and I have to get the english names for those which I am not sure I can find all. If you still want me to share do let me know, I will share the other recipes as well.

Till then stay wise beauty wise. Happy weekend to all.

Bellapierre Ruby Lipstick

I got this from one of the fabbags I ordered couple of months ago.

l1

You Can order your Fab bag here : Click here

This beautiful ruby lipstick from Bellapierre cosmetics has become my favorite red lipstick instantly.

l2

How I like it :

  1. Glides like butter on the lips and even has faint butter scent in it.
  2. Pigmentation is good. Though you need few swipes to get the bold color, if you looking for everyday wear, one swipe is good.
  3. Does not transfer the product.
  4. Has 24 months shell life since opening the product.
  5. Good staying power.
  6. Does not bleed
  7. Does not settle at the creases.
  8. Moisturizes as well.

Till now i don’t have any thing negative to say about it. It looks good on all skin tones.

That’s how it looks on me

Lakme Absolute Precision Liquid Liner

  • Super Long wear
  • Waterproof
  • Ophthalmologically tested

Price : Rs. 450/-

e3

It is a pen like liquid liner which gives more precision while applying. Liquid liners are best to give that dramatic effect or to draw a very thin line, but is not easy to apply. With this liner the tip is like a nib of the pen and you just have to draw however you like it.

How I like it :

e1

I am on the fence with this one.

  1. I like the application part. It is comparatively easy to apply but not so easy as it looks like.
  2. Perfect for winged liners.
  3. Pigmentation is good.
  4. Stays on for almost 2-3 hrs when you are indoors.
  5. If you have dry lids then as the products dries it shrinks the skin, causing a bit of irritation.
  6. Smudge proof

e2

  • The one most important thing I didn’t like is, it is not water proof as it claims, it comes off even a single drop. When You step out into sun or sweat you get the owl eyes. This is a good product if you stay indoors or in air conditioned rooms.

Colorbar Mascara Duo

Colorbar Illusion Mascara Duo

m1

Price : Rs. 450/-

How I like it :

I Curl my lashes but I don’t use mascara much. The most forgotten product in my vanity is Mascara.Till date I have not finished even one bottle. I just replace them every 6-8months. Though not regular  I do like using them every now and then .This time I Picked up a Colorbar one. Lets see how it worked out.

This is a Duo which has both Lengthening and Volumizing mascara, both in the same tube.

m2

  • 2 in 1 mascara black mascara
  • Dries out quickly
  • Easily removable with makeup remover
  • Gives natural finish
  • Not waterproof

m3

Both the wands looks similar, hence the effect looks the same. If both applied on the lashes, it makes lashes look a tad longer. I may not buy it again as i want to try out other products but if you looking for subtle or natural finish this is a good buy.

Random Talks

Today is one of those days where I am overly emotional and breaks down for no reason. Yeah you guessed it right. So nothing as such happened, as I am overthinking so there are many things happening virtually. Irony is that, Most of the days, I squeeze in sometime to write here and today I have absolutely no work and just feel like not.

view

I scanned all my mails, drafts and folders if I find anything to write about. But then if I write any review in this state of mind it would be not fair. So, decided I will write what is happening with me.

  • I am questioning everything that’s happening in my life right now.
  • I want to go for a walk but thinking of going for a walk soon.
  • OK now that got me to thinking should I eat something while I am out.
  • Sky Got a bath today . (My pet love)
  • I won few arguments which already happened and spoke nothing during that time.
  • I am planning the argumentative scenarios and already winning them incase they happen in future.
  • I am writing a book and making it to a movie both virtually of course.
  • I regret sharing that information with that particular person. (Overthinking)
  • I have lot of healthy and active lifestyle. Oh wait, I have a healthy and active lifestyle in a mansion facing sea and on the hilltop. (Sea!!?? I am not even a sea person)
  • I look fit in the above mansion so I must have already started eating healthy and work out.
  • I am counting virtual workout as real workout now Because I have to sign off and go do nothing.

How I like it :

I bought this recently and wanted to write a review after trying it on. It s been a week since i started using this and it did not disappoint me.

  • Inbetween cream and gel consistency
  • Faintly Fragranted.
  • Soaks in easily.
  • Does not feel heavy on the skin.
  • No break outs.
  • Instantly feels smooth and soft.
  • Controls oil. One thing to mention I wake up to  oil free, smooth skin in the morning.

I somehow had high expectations from this one. Though it didn’t give me great results, it did not disappoint me. Oh, the jar is so pretty. A classic Purple and Gold Combo.

Update : I have stopped using this as it is making me turn a bit darker. I wanted to waive off all the other options to zero it on this. After slowly eliminating all the other products its confirmed that this one is the culprit. 😛

Price : Rs. 525/-

How I liked it :

Finally i got my hands on this one. Since I gave away my Clinique foundation ( Review ) to a dear friend of mine, i was on hunt for a good foundation. I like light coverage, buildable foundations. I usually use BB creams or tinted moisturisers  but I do like using a foundation. It feels like I have got my canvas ready.  Considering the climate, the foundations which are weightless and does not clogs the pores are really important. I saw rave reviews about Maybelline fit me and thought Will give it a try. And I could not find anywhere at hometown, thought would order online, but was not sure about the shade,and finally, finally, I got a chance to pick up during one of my work travels. Lets get right into it.

How I liked it:

Started a love affair since it touched my face for the first time. I absolutely love it. It is all I was looking for in a foundation and what more I got the exact right shade and that too in my budget.

  • Liquid foundation
  • Blends easily and feels light
  • Light coverage
  • Buildable
  • Matte finish and does not dry out the skin
  • Does not clogs the pores
  • It does what it claims.
  • This is one of those products that i see using it completely.

Super Super happy with this. I definitely recommend this to others. Have you tried this yet? Would love to hear your comments below.
