The Perfect Way To Give Your Little One Instant Relief From Stomach Issues: Thanks to???

Summers are in the mode of arrival and it’s once again time to devote special care to our diets. Drinking lots of water and keeping our little ones hydrated is definitely one thing every mom vouches to do every summer. However despite the special care and attention, kids tend to complain Of stomachaches and other related problems.

The seasonal change not only causes difficulties like cough and cold but brings about heavy indigestion, stomachaches and other associated issues.
Especially for infants and toddlers, the issues get aggravated and the only solution is to take them to the pediatrician and subject them to the heavy, undesired dosages of antibiotics.

My kid being prone to junk food like other kids often complains of stomachaches.

Well, but a few days back, I happened to chance on this product by MamaEarth, MamaEarth’s Easy Tummy Roll On that has turned out to be the perfect savior for my kid with its exclusive natural ingredients. I have fallen in complete love with this product for its amazing series of benefits.

So here’s a quick glimpse of what this small in package but great in effects roll on has to offer for you.

A Natural Solution To The Ailing Stomach

One of the major reasons I appreciate this product is its flawless natural constitution. It contains Hing Oil that is greatly efficient in reducing gas and let it pass away naturally thus clearing the indigestion. Apart from Hing oil, other oils that are present in the Tummy Roll are Peppermint oil, Ginger oil, fennel oil etc. The anti-colic characteristics of these oils assist in clearing gas and regularize the bowel movement. Stomachaches that are highly common in children and infants get easily cured with the joint effects of these multi-efficient oils.

A Cooling Effect Post Application

Mostly all babies and children suffer from heartburn issues and problems in bowel movements. The Peppermint oil that this Tummy Roll on contains works miracles with its cooling effects. It not only heals the heartburns but also produces a soothing effect.

A Safer Alternative to Antibiotics

Stomach ailments are issues that often need immediate treatment and what we do as a reflex action is to take the kid to his/her pediatrician. Little do we think that in this course we subject him./her to the side-effects of a chain of antibiotics. Whereas this Tummy Roll on comes as a savior with natural healing ingredients as well as free from any sort of chemicals or drugs. Its credibility is further reinforced by being recommended by dermatologist and certified by MadeSafe.

Compact Packaging And Super Travel-Friendly

Another blessing that comes with this product is its innovative packaging. Mobile, can be carried anywhere without any spillovers, this Tummy Roll On is a savior for all your travel plans with all your little kiddo. Takes lesser space than a water bottle and you need not worry about any sort of other medicines even if you are travelling to a desolate island when you have this in your travel pouch.

Easy To Apply Without Any Irritation

One of the major difficulties that come along while you try to feed your kids medicines is their super attitude. ONE OF THE BEST ADVANTAGES OF The Easy Tummy Roll On is that you need not bear any tantrums of your kiddo while its application. You can just roll it on as he lies on the bed without any fear of irritation or vomiting as he/she must be usually doing for medicines.

Thus a great product launched by MamaEarth that gives you all the essential benefits of a medicine and yet not a medicine. MamaEarth, keep on launching such amazing products so that we as mommies can give instant pain reliefs to our kiddos.

Shining Black Hair Even In Her Late Fifties: Thanks Indus Valley

The Amazing Hair Color That Colors With Care

Belonging to that group of individuals who happen to be sensitive enough to encounter a number of side effects and allergies due to the use of chemical hair colors, hair colouring had remained a distant dream in the times to come. I have often come across people who complain of several hair issues post their coloring sessions and thus it’s a disaster to take the correct decision for a great hair color.

natural color for hair

best natural hair color

With ‘Indus Valley Gel Black 1.0 hair Color’ becoming a popular name in the present times, I decided to give it a try, most importantly for my mom-in-law, because it was an organic hair color that is Chemical free. Since I have already tried a burgundy highlight on my hair, i thought of going for a trial with my mom-in-law’s hair.

Her hair had recently developed quite a number of grays and thus my concern was to get the perfect coverage through a healthy and yet safe color.

Let me share an honest feedback about this product.

Words fall short to express what a blessing this product has been, for this excellent herbal hair color is definitely much more than an ordinary herbal hair color. A plenty of Bio-Organic colors are available in the market that promises to color the strands in an absolutely natural manner, but where ‘Indus Valley Gel Black 1.0 hair Color’ leave their unique mark is that this amazing product also makes for a brilliant solution for a variety of hair and scalp related problems that comes under the name of ‘Indus Valley Gel Black 1.0 hair Color’.

Here I provide you with my personal review of this amazing hair color that has worked as a complete solution for her tresses apart from coloring them in the most natural manner.

Skin Detoxing Routine With The Incredible Goodness of Charcoal

Hello Social Family,

How are the winters treating you? Well, for me it’s not quite a pleasant weather. I am not quite fond of winters especially for the damage it does to your skin and hair. For a working mother like me, devoting extra hours to beauty routines become quite burdensome as well as demanding. I usually do not follow a long and detailed beauty routine like scrubbing, cleansing, massage etc. since I don’t have ample time for the same.

Hence I am in the lookout for products that give me a comprehensive solution without any added hassles and my good luck that a few days back I got my hands on this Charcoal Face Peel Off Mask by Beauty Botanica.

Initially I was a bit skeptical about going for it, but now I am head over heels on this product and here are the reasons for the same.

A Sheer Pleasure To Apply

The best part of this Charcoal Peel off Mask is that it is absolutely smooth in texture. It glides on your skin without any added hassles and sits on your face without added interruptions. Its texture stands out to be an absolutely lovely experience since it’s neither too sticky nor too slim that would slip off your skin easily. It is an amazing experience to indulge in pampering your skin.

Peel Off As Easy As Shelling Peas

Well, most of the peel off masks turns out to be hassling enough since the peel off process is extremely troublesome. It sticks to your skin and during the process of peel off, it becomes extremely troublesome to pull it off. Therefore regarding the Beauty Botanica Peel off Mask, there had been initial hitches that whether pulling off the mask would be smooth or not. The best part is that peeling the mask off was an extremely even process without any damage to my skin or hairs. Usually when I have used other peel off masks, the hairs of my eyebrows used to come off due to their extremely sticky texture.

Thanks to Beauty Botanica, it understands the needs of your skin and the peeling off hassles usually involved.

The Wonder Effects of The Mask

Well, this is the most favorite part of my experience. Ever heard of the phrase “Black is Beautiful?” Well, this Mask will surely make you feel so. After you peel off the mask, what waits for you is an instant, fresh, magical glow to your face. Sounds like a dream? But, it’s true to the core. It gives you fresh, bright and radiant skin without any inconvenience and is a great alternative to expensive and time consuming facial sessions.

A Natural and Safer Solution

Well, while we rely on products loaded with chemicals to flaunt a glowing skin, we usually tend to ignore the unsafe side associated with it. Opting for Beauty Botanica proved to be a safer choice because it is parabens and sulfate-free and filled with natural ingredients like Activated Charcoal, Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel Water, Jojoba seed extract, Rosemary Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Peppermint Oil,Calendula,Oat Kernel Extract,Grape fruit Extract, that are truly a bliss for the skin.

Probably it is the only Peel off Charcoal Mask that boasts the presence of so many natural ingredients.

After such an amazing experience I look forward to try its sister brand, Teal and Terra which also boasts the amazing presence of incredible organic beauty products like Onion Oil serum, Argan oil etc.

Thanks to the curator Miss. Upma Kapoor whose brainchild happens to be Beauty Botanica and Teal and Terra.

How Was My Urban Clap Salon At Home Experience? Is it Overhyped or truly an incredible

Hello Social Family! Hope you are enjoying your Winter sessions. Well, for me I am not an ardent lover of winter and hence ai face quite a number of difficulties regarding my skin and Haircare sessions. Somehow I feel too lethargic or out of enthusiasm to scrub or cleanse myself. Moreover, cutting, filing and polishing nails also seem to be a huge task for me. And hence, during the last week, I decided to call upon the Urban Clap personnel for a “Salon at Home” session, the most commonly advertised one which I happened to come across number of times on social media.

Is it Expensive?

Considering this to be my first experience, I booked for a minimum range, the “Party Ready” Package that costed me around 899 INR. Well, they have other tailored solutions too as per your requirement and the booking gets done on those parameters. Urban Clap isn’t an expensive experience rather it’s quite affordable with a host of options and much lesser expensive services than a usual parlour.

How hassling was the Booking?

Well, though I was in two minds before going for the service, but then on a spur of the moment, I booked it. After an hour or so, I got a notification that Mrs. Manju Chaudhary has accepted my “Job”. I was shared her details much before my session. Moreover I also had the flexibility to choose from a multiple range of timing slots. I had a very smooth and easy booking experience and I was truly looking forward to it.

What Services Were Offered To Me?

Well according to the package, I got services like 🤗Face & Neck Detan 😇Cut, file polish Nail 🙂Full hands and full legs with underarms waxing 😄Threading ( upper lips and eyebrows)

My Urban Clap Session

So, after Mrs. Manju Chaudhary’s arrival completely on time, rather much before time, the entire session worked out to be wonderful. She maintained all hygiene measures by firstly cleaning her hands with the sanitizer.

Thereafter she took her seat on the portable stool that all Urban Clap professionals carry along with them. With utmost care and sincerity, she executed the waxing process. While parlor waxing causes extreme pain, well my session was conducted with minimum troubles. The Detan session was also done with an amazing professionalism. In fact I was so impressed with it that I asked for an add on Clean up too.

From cleaning up the Face meticulously to the massage process, every activity was done flawlessly. The best part of the session was the “Cut,File and Polish” part. The beauty professional was carrying some vibrant polish hues and each of them was so appealing that I was in a fix that which one should I opt for.

The polish was applied brilliantly without any unattended edges along with a top coat that made my nails look great.

Before she left, she made sure that the place is kept absolutely clean just like its former position. So these are the few reasons that have made me feel to cut out my parlor visits and go for Urban Clap often for my beauty requirements.

Top Brands

All products used were from good brands like Colorbar, O3, Sara,Raaga etc.

Super affordable

Packages have been designed in an affordable way to cater to one and all’s necessities.

Complete Professionals

The beauty personnel sent over was truly an experienced one and absolutely professional in her services.

Thumbs up Urban Clap Team for bringing about the “Salon at Home” sessions. You are truly a savior for working moms like us.

This Winter Keep Your hair Glamorous and Supersoft With This Conditioner

One of the most important and intriguing things during winters is to take care of your hair. Often with me, the problem happens that I am not able to give sufficient time to my hair and hence itchy scalp, dandruff and flaky hair. I am quite prone to dandruff and often my hair becomes extremely oily despite a proper head wash and all necessary precautions. The major reason for the same stands out to be that I often do not use a conditioner after applying shampoo. Even if I apply the same, the problem remains to be the quality of the conditioner.

A few days back I came across this brand called GLAMISHA and their lovely compact packaging really made me go for it. It has been almost a month I am using this and here are the reasons that why it is the perfect conditioner for this season.

DSC_0878The conditioner has a soft and smooth texture without any foams or added bubbles. The moment you apply it, it is bound to leave behind your hair tender, soft and silky.

Best of Ingredients

The best part of this conditioner is that it is enriched with natural ingredients like Tea Tree Oil, Pro Vitamin B5 etc. Tea Tree Oil is known to be a great booster for hair moisturization and growth and the presence of it in the conditioner definitely makes it the perfect companion for your hair.

DSC_0880Another reason for a perfect thumbs up to this conditioner is definitely the fact that it’s effects really last for a long time. In fact, I need to use it only once a week and its silky moisturizing results are visible up to a whole week.

Safer Option For Hair

We all know how parabens are unsafe for our skin and in this way The Glamisha Conditioner once again does a good job. Without any kind of parabens, this is a perfectly safe conditioner to rely on.

DSC_0881A Great Value For Money

Though the price of the conditioner might seem to be a bit expensive for 100ml, however the portion you need to take while application is very less. Therefore the tube of 100ml lasts more than a month or more. {However the duration of the pack might vary from person to person depending on the lengthy of the hair}

The Packaging Also Calls For Action

GLAMISHA conditioner comes in a small compact packaging. The tube of 100ml comes in a box that makes it travel-friendly without the fear of getting spilled over or being tampered.

Directions For Use

Falling in love with the product? Isn’t it? Well, just before you start using it, here’s a small guide how to use it. After using the Glamisha shampoo that you  can buy along with the conditioner and rinsing it off, pour some amount of conditioner on your palm and apply it with meticulous attention to every strand of yours. KEEP IT ON FOR SOMETIME. The MORE YOU KEEP IT ON, THE MORE IS THE CHANCE FOR YOUR HAIR TO BECOME SOFT, SMOOTH AND SILKY. Rinse off thoroughly with cold water.

Overall, my acquaintance with this brand turned out to be extremely satisfying and I look forward to use more of their products from their collection. To browse and shop their amazing collection you can visit them here. You can also have a look at their range on Facebook and Instagram.

Enjoy Winter haircare at its best with Glamisha.

A Day of Monsoon Skincare With Biotique

The monsoon season is in full swing and the showers are really romantic to pull up your gloomy moods. But along with the series of showers, there comes in a host of problems for hair and skin. Especially when it is a matter of skin, there are a number of issues that you need to take care of. While hair problems can still be managed choosing the correct shampoo and conditioner, skin care regime demand a host of things to be looked after. You need to choose the perfect sunscreen, the perfect face wash, the perfect scrub and definitely last but not the least the best toner. And after hearing a lot about the brand Biotique, I decided to give it a shot.

IMG_20170430_164836

3 Reasons I Chose Biotique For My Skin For This Monsoon

  • Organic is My Cup of Tea: I always hold a preference for organic products and hence I decided to go with this botanical range of products that claim to posses some of the choicest ingredients. Dandelion, Clove oil Saffron are ingredients that have been acknowledged for long for their multiple benefits and getting products present with these ingredients is a sheer matter of luck.
  • First Impression is Indeed the Last Impression– Though a book should not be judged by its cover, but for Biotique both the cover( packaging ) and the book(contents) proved to be absolutely upto the mark. In fact it was with the beautiful green packaging at the first sight, I knew it is indeed going to be a great product for sure.
  • Therapy is the Need of the Hour: While chemically loaded cosmetic products have overshadowed the beauty market, Biotique still stands to the claim that “This is Not A Cosmetic Product, It Has Therapeutic Properties” That makes it truly exclusive.”

Now Let Me Share My Experience With Biotique Range of Face Products

Begin The Day With The Goodness of Pineapple

I usually wash my face with this Oil Control Foaming Face Cleanser during my showers. Since I have a hectic day planned ahead, I love to keep off the constant oil from my face with this highly effective face cleanser.

IMG_20170817_234642Since it wipes off the oil at a single go and also helps to keep a check on it, applying light or heavy make up are both compatible for the skin. Moreover the lovely aroma of pineapple is also a great bonus.

DSC_0045My Sun Protection For The Day

I have already given you all a detailed review of the Bio Aloevera sunscreen lotion. With SPF 30, this tends to keep away your tanning problems. I have been using it since a month and I can definitely make a distinct difference between my prior sunscreens and this one. The tanning has not only reduced but my sweat prone skin also faces lesser amount of perspiration nowadays. Moreover it also acts as an excellent base for makeup purposes.

My Refreshing Partner With The Goodness of Peach

IMG_20170817_234717After a hectic schedule at office and my skin going through the smoky fumes and pangs of pollution, I need a complete all inclusive mask that can clear off the impurities from my skin and leave behind a refreshing glow. While most of the face masks require being prepared with water or milk or yoghurt, this comes in the form of a readymade peel off mask. Apply the mask and allow it to dry. Peel it off and then wash your face thoroughly. That’s quite an easy way to a refreshing skin, isn’t it?

Good Night With A Toning Touch

IMG_20170817_234230Who does not love the cooling effects of cucumber? Just before going off to bed, I love to apply the Bio Cucumber Toner. This is a great option for pore tightening purposes and is great for both the normal as well as oily skin. Being blended with quite a number of cooling agents like coriander, peppermint oil, fresh waters from the foothills of Himalayas, your skin receives all the coolness it deserves during hours of relaxation.

Available in an excellent range of affordable prices LIKE 149, 175, 199, 290 etc. I believe nothing can be a better organic alternative in such an affordable range.

Eating healthy has become a norm today. Considering the kind of hectic schedules we go through it becomes immensely difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet. Thus the main agenda is to strike a healthy balance between your diets and yet not put a compromise on your lifestyle.  And very few food joints in Delhi can actually live up to this purpose. Fortunately a few days back I came across this amazing food joint Go Gourmet. As the name says it thrives to bring a gourmet touch to your lifestyles.

IMG-20170630-WA0071The best part of Go Gourmet is that it does not allow you to compromise your taste buds or your healthy diet charts and yet provide you finest gourmet tastes.

Let me take you through a quick tour through the delicacies I tried and my take on it:

IMG-20170630-WA0070Thai Chicken Curry Meal in A Bowl

I am a very big fan of Thai chicken gravies and hence I decided to try their one too and I must confess I wasn’t disappointed at all. They have some exotic veggie loaded thai curry that comes in a reasonable price of 269 INR and is accompanied by health-friendly brown rice. The gravy is quite thick and is filled with fresh veggies, thus not cutting you in your diet goals yet giving you the desired tastes.

Summers and mangoes are inseparable and hence I decided to get myself a classic Thai dessert, “The Mango Sticky Rice”. This dish is rich in tastes and is actually a simple mango rice pudding with some interesting freshly cut mangoes spread over it. With optimum sweetness and without any added creams or flavors, this dish preserves itself to be a great dessert without increasing your waistlines.

So once you are heading towards  Noida or even Connaught Place or Gurgaon, make sure, you give a try to Go Gourmet at least once for a healthy yet gourmet lunch or dining sessions.

The good news is they have almost as many outlets as 6 all over the Capital city and NCR for your healthy gourmet eating sessions.
