If you have missed my previosus reviews you can check them HERE If you wish to know more about this product and my thoughts then please keep on reading.....

Svayam Natural Coconut Oil with Amla Extracts & Neem Stems Review 

Price: Rs. 415/- for 100 ml.Available on discount HERE

Ingredients & Benefits:
Coconut Oil, Amla, Neem Stems & Aloe Vera,Mustard Oil, Aloe Vera
Builds Hair Immunity & Prevents Dandruff 

Svayam Natural Coconut Oil with Amla Extracts & Neem Stems Review 

How to use:
Gently massage onto scalp and apply along length of hair. Rinse after 30 minutes with a mild shampoo. Avoid contact with eyes. In case accidental contact occurs, rinse well with warm water.

The oil comes in a plastic see through bottle from which the contents are easily available. The cap is golden in color and is good. There is no stopper in between which I don't like because it may dispense more oil than required creating a mess.I have not traveled with it so can't say if it is travel friendly but I guess one can manage right?? Ingredients and basic information is printed on the bottle.

Svayam Natural Coconut Oil with Amla Extracts & Neem Stems Review 

Coming to the product, the oil is dirty chrome yellow in color because of the presence of mustard oil which can stink if used on its own but thankfully it is used in moderation.On sniffing coconut and amla (indiangooseberry) presence  is very evident. The oil is of very good quality and not greasy in my opinion. Oiling the hair is very important like even if you have a greasy scalp you must do it once in 10 days and one should only keep it for 30 min to an hour.

Svayam Natural Coconut Oil with Amla Extracts & Neem Stems Review 

The oil seeps in well and gets absorbed easily. What I like is that it contains neem stems which are good for dandruff and prove as an antiseptic for the scalp as well.Amla is good for hair growth and helps in hair loss. I did not notice a visible difference and it is hard to tell unless I use the full bottle.However it definitely helps in preventing dandruff from what I have seen. I wash my hair after 30 minutes of application. You need to shampoo twice if you have heavily oiled your hair. Overall I like it as it contains all natural ingredients and is cruelty free. This brand have  some really good products you must go check them out soon.

MLWM Rating:4.3/5

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches (All Shades)

Hello everyone,
Today I bring forward an exciting new launch from Oriflame India and it is the newly launched The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Range which is a one of its kind product and something different from the usual matte and liquid lipsticks I have been trying lately.Summer calls for bright lip colors and if you know me,you would know that I love bright lip colors,I would say brighter the better..Lol. So anyway I am going to share my thoughts on all the colors, the formula and what I think about them in this post.If interested to know more then please keep on reading...


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches

Price: Rs. 699/- for 5ml product. But it on discount in the May 2017 catalogue at Rs. 489/- each

Ingredients:
POLYBUTENE, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, OCTYLDODECANOL, ISOHEXADECANE, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2, ETHYLENE/PROPYLENE/STYRENE COPOLYMER, POLYETHYLENE, HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, BUTYLENE/ETHYLENE/STYRENE COPOLYMER, PARFUM, BHT, CI 77891, CI 45410, CI 15850, CI 45380, CI 42090

About the product:
Super-light liquid lipstick goes on like a gel, with an ultra-smooth plexigloss finish in 8 intense shades. Non-sticky, extreme colour coverage. Glides on easily for super-slick lips with perfect colour clarity. Conditioning formula keeps lips feeling soft. A definite head-turner.


Packaging:
The lip colors come in the same kind of packaging very like their matte mousse range.If you have not read that review you can check it out HERE The tube is slim and can stand on its own and will look great on your dressing table.The wand is silver in color and has 'The One' logo on it which looks luxurious yet cute. Coming to the wand it is flat which makes application easy on the centre of the lips but a little difficult in the corners of the mouth. Overall packaging is cute and decent and also travel friendly in my opinion.

Now let me take you through the 7 shades from their range:
Tangerine Tango is a light orange hue with a hint of peach to it. 


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in TANGERINE TANGO

Sunset Burst is a beautiful red with pink undertones to it. 


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in SUNSET BURST

Hot Flamingo is a beautiful everyday baby pink color


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in HOT FLAMINGO

Malibu Blush is a beautiful coral color which is pink mixed with orange


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in MALIBU BLUSH

Pink Mambo is a beautiful deep pink raspberry color


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in PINK MAMBO

Magnetic Magenta is a magenta color like it says. It is light pink color with blue undertones which we say purple pink


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in MAGNETIC MAGENTA

Purple Rumba is a stunning purple/aubergine hue in my opinion.


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in PURPLE RUMBA

My review and thoughts:
These lip colors are certainly liquid lip colors as they claim but these are not matte which you may be used to and which are in trend right now. So over the years I have tried many lip glosses and they have all failed in the pigmentation department. Glosses which claimed to have good pigmentation have also failed.


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches (same order as mentioned above)





So would I say the same about these?? Well absolutely not. Firstly the pigmentation is really good for a liquid lip color which does not have a matte formula.I could not find any glitter or shimmer in it which is another plus point in my opinion.It has an amazing fluid and light weight texture in my opinion. It spreads easily on the lips and the texture and formula is very smooth and moisturizing, you need to wear it to know what I am saying.It has a faint smell which is not bothersome in my opinion.


Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches

You would need to apply 2 coats if you have pigmented lips like mine also you need to be careful as it may tend to go outside the lips if applied incorrectly. All the colors are bright and beautiful and have a gorgeous finish to them, very apt for summers.The longevity is not that much because it is a glossy formula and may tend to easy wipe off once you eat or drink something, however they leave a lovely stain which I don't mind at all.Overall I think  The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel is a must try for the shade selection, formula and the way it performs.If you ignore the longevity it is an amazing product in my opinion ☺☺

MLWM Rating: 4.4/5

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel  come in 7 exciting shades which have an amazing fluid texture and gorgeous finish. A must try in my opinion.

So what do you think of the The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel?? Have you tried it? Do let me know in the comments section.

Until next time.. Take care xoxo

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Hello everyone,
Today I shall be reviewing Oriflame The One  Illuskin Face Primer which I have had with me since a long time and wanted to review on my blog.Makeup primers are a must if you want a smooth base for you foundation/BB cream and if you want it to last as well.I was an alien to the concept of primer until I became a beauty blogger to be honest. So anyway if you wish to know more about this product and my thoughts on it then please keep on reading...

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Price:  Rs.649/- for 30 ml  Available online HERE

Ingredients:
AQUA, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, ISONONYL ISONONANOATE, CAPRYLYL METHICONE, MICA, POLYGLYCERYL-4 ISOSTEARATE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, HEXYL LAURATE, POLYETHYLENE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, TALC, METHYL METHACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, BIS-PEG/PPG-14/14 DIMETHICONE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, SILICA, IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, PARFUM, DIMETHICONE, DISODIUM EDTA, ALUMINA, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE, CI 77891

Description by the brand:
Create the perfect canvas for makeup with this tone-enhancing face primer. Evens out skin tone, extends the wear of your foundation and minimizes the appearance of pores*. With HaloLight Technology™ for a subtle healthy glow.

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

The primer comes in a white and purple opaque tube which has a screw cap to it. There is basic information printed on it. I wish they had a flip cap to be honest. Also there is a chance of the product accumulating on the surface of where the product comes off. It is still travel and user friendly I feel.

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

The primer is white in color and has a cream like consistency. It does have fragrance to it which is ok in my opinion. As I said before primers need to be applied before makeup to build a smooth canvas, fill pores and provide tackiness for the base product to adhere to the skin. The primer acts as a barrier between the skin and the foundation. It sounds more like a moisturizer kind of formula in my opinion. Post application of primer and foundation you will get a dewy and healthy glow which I like but not really because this primer is meant for normal to dry skin and I do have oily to combination skin.It does help the makeup to stay longer on the face but my nose and T zone get very oily hence I have to use a powder. Personally I would use this in winters as it is quite emollient for my oily skin. It does not minimize the appearance of pores or fills them. So I can easily conclude that this one is meant for dry and normal and not oily skin like mine.If you have dry skin you can go for this one.

MLWM Rating: 4/5

So have you tried Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer before? Do let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Until next time..Take care xoxo

Svayam Natural Almond - Oat Face Scrub Review

The scrub really surprised me by how good it was.Firstly the ingredients are amazing and noteworthy.They make the perfect natural exfoliant in my opinion. My skin has been behaving problematic in last 2 months and I have had a bout of acne.Like before I do not experiment with skin care but I was impressed by the product line hence thought to give it a go. I use it with rose water and scrub my face in upward direction. The scrub was gritty enough but not abrasive which is a big yay!  and post use I was amazed by how clean my face got. Post use I never had any breakouts which is a big thumbs up. It rejuvenates the skin for sure but cannot say about tanning and pigmentation for the sample size I have tried. Also I don't get  tanned easily so can't comment about the same. I think this scrub is one of the best I have tried.Now that it is summer and everyone's faces tanning issues, this all natural face scrub would be a good investment.I highly recommend this to everyone.

MLWM Rating: 4.5/5

If you have been following my blog you would know about Matrikas who make some of the best journals, diaries and planners, you can read that post HERE So this time Matrikas has done something amazing and have come up with The Creative Woman's Journal which they claim  is for the creative woman, who uses the diary to write her dreams, and escape to a different place, albeit for a short while.

I chosen the one which says " TO FLY".Well  I could have opted for to write because that is what I do but I know I am a person who wants to Fly to new heights with my writing and now my Youtube channel.

So what does this Journal contain? They have 8 colouring adult sheets made of delightful and detailed elements inspired by nature. The concept of adult colouring books is new to me.I did see some people buying those and wanted one but now I do have one so I am looking forward to unwinding with it in my free time. They also have quirky stickers as pictured below which makes writing and remembering things fun.It also comes with a pen holder and a pocket behind.

As a blogger I have 10 thousand things to do in a day and I wanted a planner but not just anyone. I was delighted when I received it, all thanks to the Matrikas team for a lovely campaign like this for women who dare to dream, write, fly and glide.The journals are of good quality and makes a great companion for my blog posts planning and life in general.The one I received has a black cover with golden dots on it and a dragon fly imprinted on it in gold very reminiscent of the theme - 'TO FLY'
