My over all reaction to this product is- it’s average. The cream texture is nice and it spreads and gets absorbed very well. But on using continuously over a period of time I’ve come to realise that it irritates my skin. I used it a lot last winter but didn’t realise then that my skin felt irritated because of it. But now since I’m using lotions instead of creams, I feel they suit my dry but sensitive skin much much better. So I’m going to switch to lotions for my face for good now.

This product has been a saviour for me . I have constantly kept my hair stressing with dyes and chemicals, some times chemically straightened and sometimes coloring it blonde. After constant chemical feed on my hair, they gaveup and I suffered from hairloss and split ends. My hair became damaged, dry and frizzy and that time it came as a saviour for me. My friend suggested me this oil and I must say I am still thankful to her for this. It improved my hair texture and also minimized hair loss. Initially I bought the 100ml packaging and later shifted to their 200ml packaging. It is 100% safe, natural and chemical free. Kamaayurveda has been working on their products and improving with time to time, you can say its a super combo of age old ayurveda and modern technology. The oil is red in color and smells a bit on the odd side but I dont mind since ayurvedic product have tendency to smell odd. Lastly its easily available and is priced for 575/- for 100ml.

An amazingly rich, yet quick absorbing fragrant moisturizing lotion. It smells of fragrant ginger and the scent lingers on the skin. The moisturizing effect lasts through the day yet is completely non-sticky. The lotion isn't too thick so is extremely easy to spread and a little goes a long way. My favourite range from Kronokare!

The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil Review The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil has texture very similar to that of a dry oil. It is very lightweight and thin, it spreads easily on the skin and gets absorbed quickly as well. The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil is a blend of 3 oils – Rosehip, Camelia and Black Cumin. In addition to these it also contains coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil and glycerine. There are a couple of more oils like lavender etc. In short it is a blend of many oils. Usually I am not very comfortable using oils on my face esp Olive and Coconut oils as they feel heavy on my skin and do absolutely nothing for my skin. Infact the pores on my T zone tend get enlarged if I use any kind of oil on my skin. But as The Oils Of Life has been such a highlighted product that I gave into the temptation and used it for now more than a month. This product is something which I am in Love and Hate relationship. I ‘ll explain you why. Consider a scenario: I recently took a facial, my skin is deeply cleansed, pores clean, no dryness and no flaky skin. I use this product 2-3 drops at night massage it well into skin and sleep. Next morning my skin feels like silk, soft and supple, glowing and well moisturised. I fell in love with this product and I keep on using it for days (rather nights) to come. Scenario 2: Few weeks have passed since I last had my facial and due to my busy lifestyle from past couple of weeks I had no time to exfoliate my skin. So basically my skin is rough, dead skin accumulated, and pores have started to enlarge esp on the T zone. I apply the product 2-3 drops at night for a couple of days in a row. After say 3 days my skin will suffer from immense whiteheads clogging the pores on the troubled part of my face along with a couple of painful ones. Plus the moisturization is not like that on the cleansed face. So from what I deciphered about this product is that it works better on a regularly exfoliated and clean skin. It tend to get absorbed better that way. Someone with a suffering with whiteheads might want to use a good scrub and toner regularly and has keep a close watch on the skin. It will not mend the flakiness. It does add softness and suppleness to skin and makes it look radiant. I saw no change in lines and wrinkles though. The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil does work well when skin is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated. It makes skin soft and radiant. But keep a close watch on the pores and whiteheads.

This amazing product has it all. If you are looking for that one anti-prespirant that gives back to your skin, your search stops here. With natural extracts, this magical cream is the best alternative to those gas filled or chemical filled deos in the market. It is completely absorbed into the skin and keeps it sweat free for quite a few hours. It even helps heal the skin and fights fungal infections while warding away any odour. It lightens and brightens the underarm area while keeping it clean and dry. This has become a staple now, and there is no turning back. The only negative i guess is the packaging but that cam be forgiven considering the positives of the product.

The Body Shop Black Musk Eau De Toilette The Body Shop Black Musk Fragrance was launched by The Body Shop internationally in 2015. This is a blend of our deepest, darkest, most sensual musk. The sweet notes of bambinella pear, pink pepper and bergamot are contrasted with the fierce black musk. Black Musk has a gorgeous and chic black and pink glass bottle which looks both elegant and attractive. This new fragrance is the darkest, most sensual musk according to the brand and fans of sweet, wintery fragrances would quite like this one. The Top notes of the perfume are of sweet pear , pink pepper and bergamot. The opening notes are sweet and fruity . In a little while the perfume settles with pear fragrance being quite prominent , there are hints of heliotrope, marzipan, almond, ylang ylang that linger on. As the fragrance begins to settle well, some of favourites including black musk, black vanilla, earthy patchouli, vetiver and chocolate set the end notes perfectly. In my experience. It is more sweet and fruity which settles into prominent black vanilla and musk fragrance. The fragrance is warm sweet and sensual. when finally the perfumes settles into black vanilla and musk it imparts a very sensual and warm feel. It reminds me of YSL Black Opium . The silage of the perfume is about 3 to 4 hrs. It is priced at INR 2195 in India. for the price I cant really complain about the silage. This perfume is a lovely warm and sweet winter fragrance. and will be loved by females who like sweet fragrances prominently.
