                             Hi girls, hope you all are a having a great weekend. Some days back I went to Dilli Haat on a sunday, and I had to shop atleast some jewellery as they are so cheap there. So here's my humble haul and I sincerely hope that you enjoy I pics and plan a trip to Dilli Haat tomorrow :D

Thank you and do have a rocking sunday :D


Nourishes and repairs.
Restores moisture balance.
25 gms for INR 90
Suitable for all skin types.

Company Says: - Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to the damaging effects of pollution, sun-rays, dirt and grime. During night, the body’s restorative mechanism takes over to repair the skin damage caused during the day.

A deep penetrating, daily use cream that has Apple, Lemon and Tomato rich in Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which revitalize your skin. Wheatgerm, a natural anti-oxidant with Vitamin E protects and moisturizes your skin. Working with the skin cells’ natural regeneration cycle, infusions of White Lily with healing vitamins, provide intensive repair and nourishment throughout the night, so that you wake up with a soft, supple and revitalized skin.

Directions for Use : - Apply on cleansed face and neck each night, when skin is most receptive for repair and renewal. On waking, your skin is soothed, soft and revitalized.

Ingredients: -
Each gm contains: Exts. {Mahanimbu (Citrus grandis), Nimbaka (Citrus limon), Tamatar (Solanum lycopersicum)} 30mg, Seva (Pyrus malus) 30mg, Godhuma (Triticum sativum) 20mg, Ksirakakoli (Lilium polyphyllum) 20 mg.

Inactives: Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Ayurvedic Proprietary Medicine. Hypoallergenic.
No harmful chemicals. FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
Store in a cool and dry place.
Do not refrigerate.

My Opinion: - I have been experimenting with different night creams since the day I came to know about its benefits. At one point of time I was not even applying my regular moisturiser on my face at night, most girls use day cream/lotion during night also. Since night creams have become an integral part of my night time beauty regime, I am using Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream right now. In short if I have to write this review , then I am happy to say that I have found my HG night cream for the winter months. Though I am yet to find out how this night cream fares in the hot weather. Now coming to the packaging, it’s a big disappointment with the box it comes in. This little carton has a false bottom and so has the white plastic tub which carries the cream. If not checked properly, a person may think that this box/tub contains a large amount of product. Very deceiving on the packaging front I would say. The tub has a protective shield, a foil, to prevent the cream from getting onto the green plastic lid.

                        The fragrance of this cream is very mild floral, nothing very special and I  think girls with sensitive noses will not have any issues with the fragrance. Its utterly light in texture and its more of a gel-lotion type consistency. This is one night cream, which is so light but still effective, I suppose it will suit oily skin very well. Just a small blob is enough for the entire face and neck, and if you somehow apply a little excess of this cream, it sits on your skin just like a mask. But applied in the required amount, this cream penetrates the skin I feel. I don’t have to keep massaging or rubbing the cream on my skin as it absorbs quite quickly.

                        This night cream contains Natural AHAs, which are extremely beneficial for the skin. Also the rest of the ingredient list is impressive except the inactive ingredients (Parabens), never expected this from Himalaya Herbals. Regular use for 3-4 months has given me radiant skin, every morning I wake up with bright, moisturised and soft skin. I can barely say about the regeneration and repair claim but I can vouch for the rest of the claims made by the company. This cream did not break me out and also it did not make by T-zone oilier. It just about balanced the skin well for the cold days, you all know how cold it gets in Del/Ggn. This cream has made me happy with its performance,  inspite of being so cheap. I used 2 tubs of this night cream during the winters and I am yet to finish of the 2nd tub as you can see in the pics.

  Pros: -
·         Extremely affordable
·         Very light and yet highly moisturising
·         Quick absorbing
·         One 25 gm tub goes on for 2 months atleast
·         Impressive ingredients list including natural AHAs
Suits my skin very well during the winter and I am yet to finish off the 2nd tub I bought, still using it in this weather (nearly summer) and it’s working great on my skin
·         Didn’t break me out and gave me brighter skin every morning

Cons: -
·         Himalaya HERBALS  is not expected to use Parabens in their products
·         Deceiving packaging

                                 I rate this Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream 4.25 out of 5 (-0.75 for false bottom packaging as well as parabens). This is a very good cream for oily skin but I have doubts regarding its performance on dry skin. It’s a must try product from Himalaya Herbals. Though I love Himalaya products very much, still I will not expect them to use Parabens as they claim to be a Herbal company.

Hope you guys enjoyed reading this review, please do leave behind your precious comments and also do tell us your experience with this night cream if you have used it. Thank you and do have a great 5th Saturday and happy March ending ahead :D

                 Do you always have to look for not-so-sexy Halloween costumes 2012 every year because you are trying to hide your stretch marks? Are you concerned with all the stretch marks on your body and don’t know how to get rid of them? Although there are expensive and time-consuming medical remedies for getting rid of stretch marks, nothing beats the convenience of a home remedy. What you must know is that stretch marks are essentially scars on your body and thus, it is difficult to get rid of them completely.

 Here are 3 of the most popular home remedies for removing stretch marks: 

 Cocoa Butter And Oil Cream
 Using cocoa butter is extremely helpful for rejuvenating the skin quality. It is extremely effective for making your skin more hydrated, smooth and supple.

 Follow these steps to make your own cocoa butter and oil cream at home: · 1/2 cup cocoa butter ·1 Tablespoon wheat germ oil ·1 Teaspoon apricot kernel oil ·1 Teaspoon Vitamin E oil · 2 Teaspoons grated beeswax 

Mix all the above ingredients in a medium sized pan and heat on medium heat till the beeswax melts.After the beeswax melts, remove it from the pan and keep it in an airtight container. Keep this cream in a cool dark place. Apply it after showering and at other times of the day, regularly.

 Olive Oil And Aloe Vera 
 Olive oil is essential in any beauty and skin care product as it is an extremely effective moisturizing agent. Given below are the ingredients that are needed to make this mixture. · 1/2 cup olive oil · 1/4 cup Aloe Vera gel · 4 Vitamin E capsules · 2 Vitamin A capsules 

The liquid from the 2 types of vitamin capsules should be mixed in a bowl and then the remaining ingredients should be added to this mixture. This mixture is not only effective for removing stretch marks but is also extremely helpful for preventing the occurrence of stretch marks in the first place. Rub this mixture softly but regularly on your stretch marks for best results.

 Vitamin C And Sugar 
Natural white sugar is regarded as one of the best mediums for exfoliating your skin. Use this for at least 3-5 minutes on your skin every day. It is best if you practice this exfoliating routine while showering. Crush a couple of Vitamin C capsules as finely as you can and then apply them on your skin with the moisturizer of your choice. Apply this mixture on your stretch marks and other skin areas. Then dab a cotton ball or fresh cloth in olive oil and apply it on the stretch marks for better results.

 These 3 home remedies for removing stretch marks will greatly reduce the appearance of your stretch marks. Remember that no form of medication can completely hide the stretch marks.

                         Hello girls, I have not been very regular with my posts on BDI, due to personal as well as professional commitments. Today I have for you a mini nail polish haul from Avon, I had ordered for 12 of these, but right now I have only 7 as 5 of the shades are out of stock. Though that's a tragic news for me and my friends ;) but still I am sharing the pics as well as swatches with you all. I haven't swatched Ballerina Pink and Sizzling Silver as I have plans of trying out some nail art with these 2 asap. Hope you all enjoy the pics and leave behind your precious comments. Thank you and have a great weekend :)
