Maybelline Haul: 15% discount advantage

1/06/2012 Ruhie Kumar 13 Comments

Hey lovelies :)
How you doing. I'm reviewing today two of Maybelline's products.

Maybelline Collosal Kajal





Pros: 
1. Smooth
2. Easy to apply
3. Glides on easily
4. Gives a dark color in three stroke
5. Can be used as liner also ( Does an amazing job, gives a deep black color)
6. Easy to carry
7. Lasts till 6 hrs
8. Elegant packaging (Awesome I should say,I love the color combination,it looks so chic :D )
9. No irritation in eyes
10. Totally waterline friendly
11. Quantity not much
12. Only 6 hr lasting ( But honestly I think that is good enough for the price )

Final Verdict:
Maybelline's Collosal Kajal costs Rs 150, but you can easily find amazing deals these days. We got this from pantaloons and there was this whooping 15% discount , so it was priced Rs 127. But if you don't get this deal available around your home, you can go for buying it online too. GoodLife and Violet Bag offers 4 to 5 % discounts .You can find the link to the sites on the sidebar :)
 It is a decent kajal but it tends to evaporate :P If you understand what I'm trying to say :D ( or maybe I think my eyes ate em up ). The search for the Ultimate kohl/kajal is never ending, but collosal is pretty decent. Definitely Recommended. :)

Maybelline Lip Smooth Color and care balm



It's a pretty and easy to use and handle lip balm :) I am totally impressed by the way Maybelline presents their products.I mean just look at this little fellow. It is so cute. And ofc It matches my nail color :D Did you know I won that nail paint in a giveaway :D , but that's another story ;) 





Pros:
1. It has spf 16 !! It's very important to protect your lips from those evil yet amazingly delicious ( esp in these winters ) sunny rays. 
2. Simply Moisturizing, it gives no icky sticky feeling.
3. It's tinted and is available in different colors. So you can chose your favorite color and rock the house with amazing looking lips.
4. A very sweet smell, nothing too overpowering. And the fragrance doesn't linger too long. So it won't be a problem for the beauties with sensitive sensories ;)
5. Definitely Travel Friendly and super cute packaging. Something you can take to a party or your college to protect your lovely lips :)
6.It has a more compact size than its Nivea counterpart so That way it is definitely more travel friendly.

Final Verdict
 Did I say supercute :P I'm discriminate towards cute thingies :D so I definitely like it a lot ( Yess I didn't say love because my first love will always be Nivea Fruity Shine ) It doesn't have an amazing lasting power and you might find your hands searching for it from time to time. That is the only con I suppose :) It costs Rs 99/- I got it for Rs 84/- ;) ( I lovvve Discounts )

Maybelline BB Cream
Yes it has been finally launched in India. But it has not reached the counters yet :( I'm pretty much excited about this product. It's very famous in many parts of the world and is said to be able to revolutionize your skincare regime, as it's an all in one product with the power of 8 benefits to instantly brighten, even tone, hydrate, conceal, smooth, mattify, freshen and protect with SPF 21/PA+++ . All this for an affordable price of Rs 199/- only :D . I'm dying to get my hands over this product.
So that's all for the Maybelline talk :P 
Loads of love
Keep Smiling

Fruit of the Earth: Arnica and Tea Tree Shampoo

1/06/2012 Ruhie Kumar 10 Comments

Hey Cupcakes,

Today I'm reviewing my latest shampoo. It is a Modicare product. "Fruit Of The Earth: Arnica and Tea Tree Shampoo". My lovely Sister-in-law introduced me to Modicare products and I must agree they are not bad. Winter always tends to bring in dandruff and so when I visted the Modicare shop, this product particularly caught my eyes ;) Top in the fact that it has Tea Tree Oil. And I couldn't stop myself from indulging in this golden beauty :)






What It Claims:
A potent double action formulation for dandruff-free hair all year round.Nature's own remedy for dandruff and problem scalp.This potent formulation with a unique double action, helps remove dandruff and restores scalp health, so that fresh dandruff does not form. Also nourishes and moisturizes hair.

Neem: The most powerful natural antiseptic, anti fungal and sporicidal. Helps remove infections from scalp.

Arnica: Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Removes dandruff and heals damaged scalp.

Tea Tree Oil: Natural antiseptic.Restores healthy scalp.

Cost: 100 ml for Rs 83/-

Ingredient Check

Sodium Laureth Sulfate: It is a detergent cleanser.Widely found in hair products.Not too good.But okay for hair.

Polyquat 7: This is good for hair.It helps in conditioning the hair.Helps the shampoo foam better.

Phenoxy ethanol : This is mostly used for its conditioning and emollient properties. Okay for hair.

Tea Tree Oil :Used to fight microbes that cause dandruff. Okay for hair if your aim is to fight dandruff  :)

My Experience:

Pros:

1. Mild Shampoo
2. Herbal, good for daily usage esp for dry hair.
3.Thick consistency
4. Mild Fragrance. It has a sort of herbal smell to it but it doesn't come off too strong so as to be irritating.
5. Didn't strip my hair dry.
6. Sturdy Packaging. Travel Friendly

Cons:

1. Didn't miraculously help with the dandruff.But did clear up the mess to a great extent.
2. Didn't make my hair dry but they weren't conditioned either. The shampoo bottle suggests using "Fruit of The Earth: Almond and Aloe Vera Conditioner" for best results.
3. Availability is an issue.Only available through Modicare Stores.

Final Word:

This is a decent shampoo and can be used for everyday use. Might be much more effective that way I guess.  But I never shampoo my hair everyday :P Anyways I have a very bad habit of comparing every anti dandruff shampoo with my HG anti dandruff shampoo Ketomac I reviewed it a few days back on my friend Pooja's Blog Indian Beauty Central. You can See The Review Here  .

That's all.Hope you Like the review.
Keep Smiling
xoxo
