PleasingCare Facial Cleansing Replacement Brush Heads

I reviewed PleasingCare Facial Brush system last month, as you all must be remembering. I was prompted to buy it as my skin was losing the glow making me look so much older, and I decided to pamper my aging skin by exfoliating and cleansing it effectively. As the system came with 2 brush heads only (classic and LUXE Cashmere), and as I was looking for something that would help me to care for my body as a whole, not just face, I went ahead and bought PleasingCare Facial Cleansing Replacement Brush Heads. These replacement heads come in a set of 4 and are versatile in function. Each brush head is made to cater to needs of different skin types, from Normal, Sensitive, Acne, Large Pores and Oily Skin. I, although, have sensitive dry skin, but it tends to get oily around the T-Zone. Moreover, with increasing age, I have started to notice large pores. With all these concern areas, I am really glad to find that these brush heads will effectively address the needs …

PleasingCare Sonic Rechargeable Skin Care Facial Cleansing Brush

Cleansing and exfoliating skin effectively is an integral part my daily skin ritual which I have been following religiously, ever since I stepped into my 30’s. After all, the real struggle of keeping the sign of aging at bay, and making the skin beautiful and radiant, starts soon after you hit the mark on 25-30. If you fall into this group, you would understand better what I am talking about! So, to pamper my skin, I have been putting my hard earned money into buy the best cleansers, exfoliators, and scrubs,  but sadly, even with all the money and efforts I have been putting, my skin tends to break out every now and then.  I have had a hard time figuring where was I lacking or what was I doing wrong! Last week, at my friends party, I met her aunt who also happens to be a beautician. While we were getting to know each other, she noticed the redness all over my face and asked me about it. When I told her about my skin condition, …

XTAVA Allure 2200W Professional Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer

A good quality hair dryer can prove to be women’s best companion for life, especially for women like me, who loves her beauty sleep so much that she hangs on to her pillow as much as possible in the morning. This lazy habit, results in me waking up just 20-25 minutes, before going to work. And, in these 20-25 minutes it’s almost like a battle field to be fought by me, making breakfast, getting ready, getting my kiddo all geared up for day care, leaving me with no time to air dry my hair, before I can style them. The only thing that helps me with the struggle is my hair dryer. I have been using hair dryer as a part of my regular hair styling routine for the past few years, and have tried a number of different brands to find the one that would work best for me. And, over the years have realized, that the right hair dryer can make styling hair simple, fun and effortless, without damaging your hair in the …

XTAVA Collapsible Silicone Hair Diffuser for Blow Dryer

I am the kind of person who cherishes the last few minutes of sleep, when you are conscious, but just feel lazy enough to get up. I try to hold on to this as much as possible and the result is me waking up just 20 to 25 minutes before going to work. In these 20-25 minutes, I have to get ready, put together breakfast and get my kiddo ready for day care. OH Gosh…Imagine me struggling with catching up on all the fronts in the morning! This leaves me with no time to let my hairs dry naturally so that I can style them the way I want, and this is when blow drying helps. I have thin, limpy and curly hairs. Blow drying makes my hairs even drier, difficult to tame, and frizzy! Not only that, but the heat of the blowdryer causes lot of damage, making hairs fragile.  I really wanted something that could give my limpy hairs bit of a volume to enhance the beauty, without causing so much of damage. …

XTAVA Auto Styler – Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron with 1.1″ Barrel

What would you answer if I asked you, “What is that one thing that even though might seem simple, yet appears nearly impossible for you to achieve? Well, for me I would say there are quite a few of them! And out of them, one that may seem easy piesy to others, but I find almost impossible is achieving those perfect curls using a curing rod, which has always made me envy my friends who can do it in a breeze. I have always struggled with getting the polished curls that I simply adore. The problem seems to be the lack of necessary skills that ones require when using a curling rod. Rolling the hairs in the rod, aligning them perfectly well seems to be just impossible. No matter, how hard I try I fail! Every time, either few strands get left out in the process or simply slide up while the rod is working its magic. And the result is, untidy and unfinished curls. Poor me! To end up my struggle and make the …

XTAVA Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener – Professional Flat Iron with Tourmaline Ceramic Plates

I cannot express in words how much I adore straight hairs! This is the reason I never liked my natural hair, which are dry, thin, frizzy, and difficult to tame. With this thin texture, I never dared to try flat iron as I believed it would causes more harm than doing any good. The heat of flat iron, as you all must be aware, damages the surface of the hair and causes frizz, making them dry and weak. I did not want to further damage my locks. I must admit, couple of times, I even thought of getting my hair rebounded, but the thought of all the chemicals used during the process scared the hell out me, so I backed. This was the end of my aspiration! Recently, I got a chance to review XTAVA Infrared flat iron, which uses the infrared waves to straighnten the hair. I was bit hesitant to accept the opportunity, at first, but upon reading that this straightener locks in natural moisture, protects hair cuticles, and add silkiness and shine …

With lots of slush, piles of snow and freezing temperature, the only rescue is to keep yourself bundled up in order to survive.

100 Naturals #Biotin for Hair, Nails and Skin

You all must have seen and heard about “BIOTIN” all over social media these days! Do you have any idea about what it is actually? Let me tell you few things about BIOTIN that would help you to better understand the product I am going to review today. Biotin also known as vitamin H or coenzyme R, is a water-soluble B-vitamin. It is very important for body as it helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Moreover, it is also linked to improve hair health and maintaining proper function of the nervous system. It is used as a dietary supplement for strengthening hair and nails, though scientific data supporting this outcome are weak. (Info via, Wikipedia) Now that that you know about Biotin, lets talk about 100 Naturals Maximum Strength BIOTIN SUPPLEMENT that I was asked to test and review. Well, based on the fact about BIOTIN I mentioned above, I was really not sure if it would actually help with hair fall or brittle nails. But, I really wanted to see if it can make difference, if any! …

Sun*Si’Belle Broad Spectrum Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ‪#‎sweetsationtherapy‬

Year by year, due to ozone layer depletion and other environmental factors, Sun rays are becoming more dreadfully capable of causing havoc on our skin. It is very important to protect out skin by using a good quality Sunscreen whenever we are out in the SUN. Sunscreen is not only meant to be used in Summers, but you need to use is all the year round to protect your skin. If you use sunscreen just during Summers, your skin is at risk from the harmful UV rays. On this note, today I will take the pleasure to introduce you all to a new Sun*Si’Belle Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, which unlike normal sunscreen is tinted. “WOW! A tinted sunscreen!” This was my reaction when I was first offered a chance to test/review it. I had never used tinted sunscreen before this, so was bit skeptical as to how will it look on my skin. But, after tying it on my skin I was really pleased with the result! Apart from the fact that it is tinted, …
