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.

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.

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 Splush of Ethnic Vibes:My Lookbook During This Durga Puja

Hi friends! It’s indeed been a long time I had written my blog and I know you all might have been missing my reviews for long. Our festive season is finally over and we are again gearing up for the Diwali celebrations. While I have been missing from the blogging scenario for long, it’s time for me to give you a quick recap of how I celebrated my Durga Puja. For those of you who are not quite aware of what Durga Puja means to us, well it is the biggest festival for all belonging to the Bengali culture.

As I celebrated this grand festival, here’s a quick look of my closet. I preferred to keep it ethnic throughout keeping in mind the festive spirits.

Durga Puja usually remains to be an occasion of 5 days and as Dusshera nears the grandeur in your looks multiplies.

The first day I decided to keep it simple with a white asymmetric kurti and a yellow half shrug. I teamed it up with a pair of small oxidised zigzag rings.

I also had a small brass based Ganesha pendant to jazz up the final touch.

The second day of festivity was marked by a Prussian blue A Line kurti. I have always tried to keep it simple and a small bindi has helped me a lot keeping at par with the theme.

Jaipuri Jhumkis and the brass pendant were my jewelry companions.

The third day popularly known as Ashtami we Bong’s try to give our traditional best and hence I decided to go for a saree.

Navami always has a tune of disappointment in it as it marks the second last day of celebrations. Maa Durga is soon going to return to her home. But that cannot diminish the fashion celebrations.

Went ahead with a black spaghetti dress teemed up with a white beadee necklace.

Dashami or Dusshera marks the climax of Durga Puja festivities. The famous “Sindoorkhela”( playing with Sindoor is organised to pay adieu to Maa Durga with celebrations yet with a heavy heart. My fashion book for the day happened to be a red saree teemed with a gold coined necklace and a small red bindi.

So this was my celebration of Ethnicity this Durga Puja.
