This is my first order and much awaited one. I ordered 2 facial mists and one cleanser. Due to not so good courier services here, order took really long to reach me, it took the same time for me to try and review it here.

Warrior is a Charcoal cleanser which can be used both as both cleanser and a Face Pack.With Activated Charcoal in everything these days from the cleansers to the tooth paste, I had to buy this as soon as i saw the charcoal on it. I used it as a pack. Not so appealing, it is a hard and coarse to feel. It is not spread out easily as it is, that is why it is important to add water to make it a paste and spread it easily. It smells like Teatree oil and Multani mitti ( Fullers earth) though it is not on the ingredient list.

Take a small amount of the product and add water to make it a paste and apply it on the face . Leave it on for 5- 10 minutes and wash it off. It does leave a black tint on the face if cleaned it off with only water. This black tint can be removed by using a gentle cleanser. I used Besan (Chickpea flour).

After Cleansing off, I noticed a cleaner and fresher face.

Skin feels soft and smooth.

They send out a copy of ingredients and the directions on how to use the product in the package.

Love the warrior. I am adding this to my travel kit as it is easy to apply and dries off quickly. It takes max 10 minutes to get clearer and clean skin.

 

Summer Outfits

When we say summer outfits, all we can think about is the easy breezy clothes that feels like nothing on the skin. When we say easy breezy does not mean mundane or boring, they can be stylish too. Take your pick from the styles below.

  1. Shorts :

shorts

Shorts are the first ones to come to our mind. Shorts does not have to be dedicated for beaches, you can team it up with a well fitted blazer for those casual brunch meetings.

2. Culottes:

culottes

Who can forget these airy, comfortable pants. You can team them up with a crop top and a blazer or go casual with just an oversized tee or go formal with well fitted blouse or shirt. Take a hint from the ladies above.

3. Summer Dresses:

summerdresses

Florals,Prints, maxis,little dresses in bright colors or Pastels. When it comes to dresses there is a wide variety. You can pick according to your comfort and stay calm.

4. Skirts :

skirts

Who can go wrong with the long skirts. You can pick your fabric and team them up with a tee or tank tops or even a cotton blouse.

5. Kurtis with Palazzos:

kurtipalazzos

As much as I love wearing shorts and dresses, by the end of the day I love Indian wear. They are so versatile if you are open to bit of experimenting. The place where i live is a bit conservative, so I prefer wearing Indian outfits. Wearing just the kurta,salwar everyday can be a bit frustrating, so I usually team up kurtis with Palazzos or the Culottes. They not only amp up the style quotient, they can be ever so comfortable.

6. Kurtis with Skirts :

kurtis_with_skirts

I love wearing long skirts, especially the cotton ones. I usually wear them with a cotton blouse or a tank top and scarf. After moving back to my hometown with the limited options in clothing I started teaming them with long kurtis.And they have become my comfort wear ever since. They are ethnic, comfortable without compromising on the style.

7. Sarees: cottonsarees

Sarees!!! The Never ending Love story. I love wearing sarees. I have seen only sarees around while growing up. So many varieties, so many fabrics,so many styles. The list never ends. I personally believe every  Girl looks her best in a saree. I usually wear them on sundays to the church or just whenever feel like it. I usually prefer wearing cotton ones of the fabrics locally bought. With the right blouse you can don a saree anytime you want.

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.

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.

Shade : #008 C Classic Mauve

Price : Rs. 475/-

How I like it :

cb1

I already have a Tangerino 015 shade ( Review here ). Though was not too happy with Pigmentation, they glide on lips like butter and keeps them moisturised. First, I went to Inglot, after trying out their lipsticks, i fell in love with the mauve shade. But they didnt have the stock of that shade, so disheartened came out of the store. As I was window shopping, I was generally trying out the shades at their counter, and found this. Lets see,

The creme touch collection are their range of cream lipsticks.

  • Silver Sturdy packaging makes it Travel friendly.
  • A pretty mauve shade for everyday wear.
  • It Glides smoothly on the lips and keeps them moisturised. You can even get the burnt butter kinda smell.
  • Pigmentation is not as great as expected. Needs more than 2 swipes to get the exact shade.
  • Feels light on the lips.
  • Staying power is not more than 2 hours and leaves a tint behind.
  •  SPF 15.

That’s How It looks on me.

cb2

For me, these are more like a tinted lipbalms which feels light and smooth.

Would I buy again?

A different shade Maybe. I was not even planning on picking up this one. But I did, so Never know. Would I recommend? Oh Yes Definitely. A pretty shade at affordable price. I say Go for it. 😀
