Himalaya New Protein Hair Cream

I love my hair and I take extra care to maintain its shiny and healthy condition. I color my hair with heena once every six months. I wash my hair every alternate day and oil them once every week. I have dry scalp so I have been advised to deep condition my hair too.

So when I got Himalaya Protein Hair Cream for review purposes, I was excited to test all its claims -

Product: Himalaya Protein Hair Cream 
Quantity: 175ml
Price:100 Rupees


Nourishes your hair with Natural Proteins derived from ingredients like Wheatgerm and Chickpea. Indian Gooseberry and Thistles promote hair growth. Use regularly before and after shampooing for well nourished, soft and shiny hair. It contains Chanaka (Chickpea), which is a rich and natural source of protein that helps in hair growth along with Godhuma (Wheatgerm), which is also a good source of protein and vitamin E. Amalaki (Indian Gooseberry), acts as an anti-oxidant and hair growth promoter while Bhringaraja (Thistles) strengthens hair root and prevents hair fall. Protein hair cream nourishes hair root and shaft.

Dry and lifeless hair and hair fall. 

Ingredients Include:
  • Cicer arietinum (Bengal Gram, Chanaka)
  • Triticum sativum (Common Wheat, Godhuma)
  • Emblica officinalis (Indian Gooseberry, Amalaki)
  • Eclipta prostrata (Thistles, Bhringaraja)
Use daily before and after hair wash.Massage gently on scalp and hair leaving it before an hour before shampooing.Apply to damp hair after every wash for all day extra nourished and stronger hair.

My Take On The Product:
I used this product for quite some time now and I am in a love- hate relationship with it.
I love the consistency of this product - it is thick and non sticky.
I apply this product a night before shampooing my hair the next morning and it works great - it makes my hair soft and shiny.
It is very cheap compared to other hair masks and creams available in the market - Dis is great.
I dont have any hair fall problem so i cant really comment on that.
The product smells like a mild herbal product which is good. The scent is not over-powering.
One thing I didnt not like about the product is that it left my hair oily and sticky when I tried applying this cream after shampooing my hair. So cant use this as a leave-in conditioner.
It has parabens as their inactive ingredients. 

Love it Or Chuck it ? 
Definitely worth a try. Comes dirt cheap!! 

Please note: This product was sent by the company's PR for consideration.

Kkcenterhk White Glue Cosmetic Lady Double Eyelid/Eyelash Glue - M106A

KKCenterHK was kind enough to send me a lash glue when they sent me false eyelashes for review purposes. I am very naive at using eyelashes and glue. This all was very new to me and also i was worried about using a glue on my eyelids thinking "what if it caused some kinda reaction?" 

So when i used this product for the first time - I was very careful and alert to observe for any kind of changes and look out for any reactions. I was pleasantly surprised after using this product and Hence decided to review it. 

Product: Cosmetic Lady Double Eyelid/Eyelash Glue
Quantity: 12ml
Price: USD 5.21$
Item Number: M106-A

 My Take On The Product: 
Clear Eye Lash glue is safe for use about the eyes and is absolutely  non-irritating. 
It is waterproof - which is another great point about this product.
This glue can be used to create double eyelid look for people with monolid. 
The glue initially starts out as a aqueous solution and then ends up as a sticky consistency which makes gluing the eyelashes to your eyelids easy. 
The clear glue ends up looking very natural on your eyes. The white glue ends up being transparent when it dries off.  
The glue dries off in a good amount of time - about a minute. 
It also held the false eye lashes well.
The application of the glue is very easy with the help of the fine, long brush.

Love it or Chuck it? 

I have no complaints. :)

KKCenterHK have some great products and deals - Do check out their website HERE.

Makari Clear Acnyl Cream

I have combination -oily skin and have been plagued by pimples and acne for past few months. Some of you must be aware that I was also undergoing a treatment for these pimples and acne. Its been two months now since I started treatment and now my skin has really improved.

I got to use this cream just when I was having bouts of pimples again on my left cheek. So I used this cream along with other medications for a few days and later I used this cream alone to test its claims. So here is the review. . .

Product: Makari De Suisse Creme Clear - Acnyl Cream
Price: 3000 Rupees
Quantity: 100ml

 About Makari De Suisse Creme Clear - Acnyl Cream 
Specially formulated to help diminish the appearance of pimples while clarifying the skin. Fights against the excess production of sebum. Acts as an antiseptic cream. Contains active soothing and clearing agents. Apply twice daily on the face or on any other affected by blemishes with a gentle massage.

Direction of usage
This product has been specially formulated for Acne prone and Oily Skin. While using this product, do not use any other products that are greasy or oily. When necessary, only use make up suited to your skin.
Apply Twice daily on face or any other parts affected by pimples. Please Cleanse face thoroughly before using Anti-Acne Clarifying Cream.


Product has Parabens in it !!!

My Take On this Product: 

The first time I used this product I had applied it right after stepping out of shower but then I realized it made my skin oily. So later on, I use to spot apply the cream on my pimples and blemishes twice a day. 
I quite liked the fragrance of this cream. The cream is very nicely scented which lingers on for a while and instantly calms you.
The next thing I noticed about this cream was its TEXTURE - It was oily and rich which scared the day lights out of me ! I was skeptical that the cream ll cause more breakouts to erupt on my face. The cream,however, instantly was absorbed into my skin. 
I used this cream along with my other medications - and it sped up the process of vanishing my pimple away.
I used this cream "alone" without my other medications & it didnt do much to my pimple.
This cream never cause any allergic reactions - Other "Plus Point" !!
Lastly, the price for this cream is HUGEEEEEEEEEE ....... Its so costly.. .!!

Love it or chuck it ?
Its too early to give my opinion on this cream... The  quantity provided in the sachet can't help to decide whether this cream works or not. I will definitely recommend using this cream along with other medication as it worked wonderfully on my skin to get rid of pimples.

Makari De Suisse Clarifying Exfoliating Soap

I was so delighted to see this soap. It is so cute and small. I have never used an exfoliating soap before so this was the first time - So after using this for sometime now .. Here's the review. . .

Product: Makari Clarifying Exfoliating Soap
Quantity: 200 gms
Price: 800 Rupees

This soap can be purchased online from Makari website.

About Makari Clarifying Exfoliating Soap:
Thanks to its natural properties, this Triple action soap helps provide you with the complexion you aspire to. The soap offers an ideal treatment to prepare the skin for the enhanced effectiveness of the entire range of Makari de Suisse Skin Clarifying products.

Skin Type & Usage Instructions:
Suitable for all skin types. Use daily in the bath or shower. For maximum effect of the soaps whitening properties please keep lather on for at least 5 minutes.

My experience with the product: 

The first thing i noticed about this soap was its shape and how cute and small it is. The shape is same as the benzene ring structure - Hexagonal - something which I could relate to very quickly as I studied chemistry.
I loved the smell of this soap.
The soap lathers up very well. I dont use this soap directly on my face. I lather it up on my wet hands and then use the lather on my face.
The granules on the soap can be a bit harsh on the face.
I did experiment by keeping the lather on my face for a while before washing it off - but it made no difference.
The soap does a good job of exfoliating my skin.
It does improve the skin texture a bit - making it soft and supple.
The only thing I am a bit skeptical about this product is THE PRICE - its a bit too high for a soap!!

Love it or chuck it ? 
I would not buy this soap because of its exorbitant price !
