My take on Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel by Fuschia VKARE:

Firstly when read the ingredients I was like woahh I am definitely using this. Yes! They have this all natural and beneficial ingredients aqua & aloe vera that are great for hydration and soothing skin, vitamin E & spearmint oil are antioxidant rich (reduces the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections such as discoloration), lemongrass oil is an antiseptic and also antidepressant, eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil have anti-inflammatory & antiseptic properties and lastly tea tree oil which the best essential oil for acne prone skin.

I use this product thrice a week at night for 15-20 minutes and rinse it off. The most amazing benefit that it gives me is cool and calming effect to my skin and I really sleep peacefully. This face gel takes away excess oil and dirt from my skin and I have seen my dark spots lighten since I have added it to my skincare also it prevents acne 100% and I am so happy with this. Lemongrass oil is a dominating ingredient in this face gel as it has a strong fragrance of lemongrass and when I apply the face gel it gives me a tingling sensation for the first 30 seconds but that is surely because of the blend of all oils. Over all I feel my skin loves this product and I am happy I received it in my Fabbag.
Pros of Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel

  • Natural and Paraben free
  • Not tested on animals
  • Lightens dark spots
  • Cooling and calming effect
  • Removes dirt and excess oil from skin

Cons of Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Balancing Face Gel:

  • It has a strong fragrance
  • Little expensive (but totally worth it)

Other than that I did not really find any cons.

Do I recommend this product?

Yes!! It is a great product for combination and oily skin types..

See you until next time and take care lots of love ❤

Plunge Watermelon Brightening Serum review..

Hey guys, welcome back..

I have always had a crush on skin serums & wanted to try one. O3+ Professional recently have launched their Plunge range and they have Plum Watermelon Brightening Serum. I looked for some reviews on YouTube and on nykaa.com they had great reviews so then I ordered it. I have now used it for almost 25 days and thought of sharing the reviews with you guys. So, lets get started.

Brand: O3+ professional Plunge USA

Product: Plunge Watermelon Brightening Serum

Price: INR 740 for 10g

Shelf life: 36 months

Availability: nykaa.com myntra.com purplle.com

Product description: Plunge Watermelon brightening serum (squeezed with fresh watermelon juice) instantly hydrates, brightens and boosts glow with the goodness of watermelon juice. It also helps in reducing uneven skin tone and boosts glow & provides moisture.

How to use: Use serum regularly as it is a treatment for your skin. Apply on face and neck, absorb it into skin, seal with either a moisturizer or a sunblock.

Plunge Watermelon Brightening Serum

 

My take on the Plunge Watermelon brightening serum:

I am using this serum since 25 days now. I use this product post cleansing and toning. All I do is take a small amount of serum on both the side of my cheeks, over my forehead and neck, pat it onto my skin until it sinks in. It quickly absorbs into my skin and gives a soft supple feel, my skin feels hydrated and moisturized and the soothing fragrance adds more freshness. The product says it reduces uneven skin tone. Well I have an uneven skin tone and that is the only reason I got my hands on this serum. I saw reviews about the product from some well-known YouTubers, they had given great reviews about it and so I bought it instead of it being an expensive one. After all investing in good skincare is very important. Now to be honest I have no change in my uneven skin tone. Yes my skin surely feels nourished and the serum adds glow to my face but sadly it did not help me to even out my uneven skin tone & also what disappointed me is that the product has a very little of quantity which lasts not more than 35 days (at least for me). If you guys are looking for a hydrating & moisturizing serum this can surely be a good product for you.

Pros of the Plunge watermelon brightening serum:

  • Hydrating
  • Moisturizing
  • Boosts glow
  • Light weight & quickly absorbs
  • Soothing fragrance

Cons of the Plunge watermelon brightening serum:

  • Expensive
  • Less quantity
  • Does not even out skin

Rating: 3/5

Will I repurchase it?

No! I won’t.

Do I recommend?

Yes, only if you are looking for a good quality hydrating and moisturizing serum & No, if you are expecting an even skin tone.

That’s all for today’s review guys. Hope it helps you all.  Feel free to share your reviews with me if any.

See you all, take care ❤ lots of love 🙂

D.I.Y. Hair Mask for Healthy, Shiny & Frizz free hair..

Hello guys… Welcome back!!

Some of the members of my Instagram family asked me DIY remedies for hair. It’s winters and most of us are facing dry hair, dandruff & hair fall already. I know it’s been a while since you guys have asked me for DIY remedies for hair but yes, it’s definitely because i try remedies myself before suggesting them to you. So today I am sharing an amazing recipe for your hair that will without any doubt cut off the frizz, add shine to hair and if used regularly can help in getting rid of dandruff and boost hair growth. So without any further ado let’s get started 🙂

Ingredients: All you need is Green tea, Honey, Yogurt and any carrier oil (I have used coconut oil)

How is it useful for hair?

Green tea is rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols promotes hair growth, strengthens the roots and reduces hair fall. It is Anti-inflammatory in nature which helps in getting rid of dry scalp, has anti-oxidants that is great for cleansing of scalp and reducing dandruff.

Yogurt repairs damaged hair, handles frizz, reduces dandruff as it has anti-fungal properties and adds shine leaving hair smooth and silky.

Honey has great moisturizing properties that help in conditioning of hair and adds shine to dull hair.

Coconut oil helps in reducing breakage of hair, prevents hair fall and nourishes scalp.

How to make the mixture?

  • Take 2-3 teaspoons of Green tea grind it in a grinder.

DIY hair pack

How to use?

Apply the hair pack from roots to tips with fingers also massage well onto scalp. Let the moisture and the benefits of all the magical ingredients seep into the scalp for amazing results. Don’t forget to apply the hair pack to the ends of the hair that will help in reducing split ends. Once you are done applying the hair pack cover it with a shower cap and let the warmth help treat your hair and scalp from within. Keep it for 1 to 1.5 hours and wash it off with luke warm water. You can also use a mild hair cleanser to wash off the hair pack well. I did not use any conditioner onto my hair as I wanted to see how my hair feels on using this remedy.

My experience:

On using this hair pack my hair felt so smooth and silky. My hair was frizz free and had a shine to my hair. I never focused much on DIY remedies for hair but I have now decided to take some time for myself and use variety of remedies and share the best of them with you.

So guys surely give this remedy a try and let me know how it works for you!!

My take on the product:

I bought this foot cream just to give it a try without expecting a lot from it. But it proved me wrong, it actually worked for me. I use it twice a day in the morning after bath and at night before I go to bed. I have always had very dry feet and I have been super lazy to moisturize them. On using this foot cream, within 2 weeks I have seen noticeable changes. It definitely nourishes my feet, the the dark patches have lightened. Now i have added it in my night care routine, I wear socks at night to give my feet the warmth letting these herbal ingredients do their magic and get up having happy feet yeaahh! My Mom uses it for her cracked heels and it has really helped to heal those cracks. It is very affordable product and the best part of it is that it’s herbal. I love this cute little product and I am going to buy it over and over again.

PROS

  • Affordable
  • Keeps feet nourished
  • Reduces dark patches
  • Repair cracked heels
  • Herbal ingredients
