                      I have heard a lot about but as I am very much content with my Vellvette Box, I never gave it much thought. Then this month finally I gave in, just for once I thought. It was on offer for Rs 399 and shipping was free and so I had nothing much to lose. Yesterday I received my first packet from Enchantress and here are the samples for you all to enjoy and yes.... I didn't receive that spa magazine they are sending out with their bags....???//// Or am I wrong????

Fruit Of The Earth- Vitamin E Cream (I have very oily skin & I don't understand why they have sent this rich cream to me)

Annagaspi- Insta-Glow Placenta Face Mask (Sounds interesting- will try on Sunday and let you guys know the result)

Jacqui & David- Peach Papaya Fragrance Mist

Paul Mitchell- Tea Tree Conditioner - 2 sachets

Now this pink handmade is beautiful....very beautiful. This card came inside a cream colored envelope with 4 discount coupons.

The customized note inside the Card with my name on it...

Well.... this was an average experience I would say and as of now I would not subscribe to Enchantess Bag again.

Thank you and have a rocking weekend :)


            Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of posts as I am a little busy with office work. Lots of posts lined up for the next few days but for now have a look at my Vellvette Bag which I had received 3-4 days back. Vellvette Box/Bag is getting creative day by day, this time I loved the pink bag as it is so pretty and handy to be (filled with makeup...for touch up) carried inside our big bags specially when travelling. Great concept and I am very happy with this month's bag (samples). After the mix up last month which Vellvette solved within a few  days and replied to my mail, they promised to send me last month's sample along with this month's box. And yes... they did plus also send a bonus product. Lets see what I got

Just Herbs Advanced Pimple Treatment Kit

1. Ayurvedic Pimple Treatment
2. Silksplash Face Wash
3. Neempure Neem Pack

Great timing as I have 3 pretty pimples right on my forehead :P

LA Splash Glitter Eyeliner- Eclipse ( Black with bright blue glitters)

Toni&Guy Frizz Smoothing Curl Shampoo

Now Last Month's Sample :D

The Nature's Co Aquaspark Cool Cucumber Face Wash

I was sent 2 tubes of 15 ml each but 1 tube is broken and too messy to be photographed. I love face washes and I can't wait to use it.

And now the Bonus

This month I am very happy with Vellvette and I don't regret my decision of a full year subscription. Thank you :)

Monsoon Hair & Makeup: Tips by Oriflame India's Beauty & Makeup Expert- PR INFO

Makeup tips for Monsoon by 
Ms. Aakriti Kochar, Beauty & Makeup Expert, Oriflame India

For monsoon, the most significant thing is to opt for matte makeup. Avoiding gloss, sheen or shimmer on the face is recommended. As the makeup settles down, the glow will come on its own. Opt for a matte finish primer that prepares a good base for your foundation and prevents make-up from spoiling.

A matte finish primer and foundation helps maintaining the skin’s complexion and preventing it from oxidizing which is a result of excessive oil secretion on the skin. Use a mattifying powder, preferably a compact to finish the base. This will ensure matte skin for longer! In case your skin produces excess sebum, make sure you carry blotting paper that soaks excess oil without removing the makeup.

The following should be AVOIDED:

Cream based makeup products, whether it is foundation, blush or eye shadow as they are likely to make you sweat more

Too much shimmer and glitter as this will overdo the shine on your face

Sticky /thick lip gloss on top of your lipstick as it can make you uncomfortable

Use of waterproof products for eyes is essential. Choose the eyeliner, eye kohl and mascara carefully, as they are the products which you would want to prevent from dripping off and smudging. One aspect that we often tend to ignore is taking the make-up off. Always use a makeup remover, especially for waterproof makeup to remove these products.

Tips for Monsoon Hair care by 
Ms. Aakriti Kochar, Beauty & Makeup Expert, Oriflame India 

Use the right comb to untangle your hair - wide toothed combs with less static

To avoid breakage, comb your hair at the bottom and then start combing from the roots

Make sure your hair is fully wet before you apply shampoo and use warm water for this

Like your skin, your hair also needs hydration. Drink plenty of water

Eat a balanced protein rich diet, along with plenty of fruits and vegetables

Condition your hair and leave it on for few minutes for deep conditioning

Frizzy Hair – Some of us might face friziness during monsoons, use cream based shampoos and conditioners. Frizzled hair is an outcome of raise cuticle. For frizzy hair, use a mild shampoo and a light weight leave in conditioner to lock moisture. Use hair masks for Dry and frizzy hair to get that extra moisture to last good 1-2 months

Dull hair – You can oil your hair once in 15 days in monsoons. Leave it on for 1 hour and then shampoo and condition. Treat your hair with hair spas once a month, enriched with protein that will lock moisture levels and close the cuticles

Hairfall – Hair fall increases during monsoons but this is a temporary phase. Use specific shampoos and conditioners for anti – hair fall/breakage. Also, indulge in hair masks and spas, specially designed for hair fall. This will strengthen your hair from the roots as well as the length

Dandruff – Humidity leads to itchy flaky scalp in Monsoons. One may have a healthy scalp throughout the year, but during monsoons are struck by Dandruff menace. Use an effective Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Cut down on styling and styling products, that further aggravates the problem by attracting dirt and grime

Flat Hair - Use volume boost shampoos and conditioners to give your hair that extra volume look. This common problem during monsoons for oily or thin hair

Oily Hair/Scalp – Use a light weight shampoo and conditioner, preferably gel based products that do not leave your hair feeling oily or sticky. Wash your hair regularly to get rid of excess oil and dirt. Oily hair tends to become limp during monsoons and required shampoo that will give volume to the hair

Monsoon – Skin and Hair Care

Article by Written by: Dr. Manjiri Patankar Puranik, M.B.B.S., M.D., Founder, InstaSculpt

After the terrific heats of summer we all wait for the monsoons as we all love to enjoy the gloomy clouds and with the rains pouring in its pleasant and reviving but absolutely hate it when it comes to the rain damaging our hair or skin.

It is very crucial to take care of both hair and skin in the monsoon to avoid dryness which could damage them badly.

Coming to skin first, because of the humidity in air being increased the skin has a tendency to become dry very easily. Skin requires regular cleansing in order to keep it looking fresh and healthy. Taking the care of skin also depends on type of skin each one of us have. As per the skin type one needs to take necessary care.

Dry skin: Keeping the skin hydrated all the time is very important. Cleansing is important during the monsoons. The high humidity causes sweat, build-up dirt, and dust along with other toxins on the surface of skin. Keeps skin nourished. Loss of moisture from skin makes it appear dry and lifeless. Use a good moisturizer at least 2 to 3 times a day.

Oily Skin: Use a very mild cleanser to get the dead skin and dirt off from skin. Use pure oatmeal scrub to cleanse oily skin or use ripe papaya pulp as a mild exfoliant.

Apart from cleansing, Toning is a necessity at night. During monsoon, a lot of airborne and waterborne germs are let free. So a good anti-bacterial toner will go a long way to prevent skin infections and breakouts. It is a good idea to get anti-bacterial face wash too.

Moisturizing in the rains is as important as it is in summer. Monsoons can mean a de-hydrating effect on dry skin and an excessive-hydrating effect on oily skin. The skin gets wet often and with the constant wetting and drying, a lot of dehydration takes place. That explains the itchy feeling one gets during monsoons. Use a non-water based moisturizer, if you happen to get wet often. Otherwise a water- based moisturizer will do just fine.

Though its monsoon, still don’t avoid the usage of SPF, minimum is SPF 15 as UV A rays are all the time around us hence do follow the use of sunscreen on daily basis.

Since the temperature is humid make sure the skin is kept dry to avoid getting fungal infections.

Hair Care

Along with Skin is equally important to take care of hair. It’s very important to keep hair dry to avoid getting infections or lice infestations. The monsoons also bring in humid air which makes the hair drier so it’s very important to keep hair simple with fewer styles and less usage of any cosmetic products.

Styling can only be done when it goes suddenly from damp to dry. Damp hair is very flexible. It stretches easily and breaks. It needs to be handled cautiously. Towel dry gently and don’t pull or comb wet hair. Use your fingers or a blow dryer to dry hair until it’s just slightly damp.

Try to keep the hair as dry as possible so as to avoid any infections. Also hair could become brittle or lifeless if there is repetitive use of hair dryers to keep it dry hence allows it to dry naturally.

Important Tips for Clean and fresh hair:

* If possible keep your hair tied in the monsoons. Go for a shorter hair cut if you want to avoid dirt build up on your scalp or get splits ends. A well-groomed look is essential in the monsoons.
*Do not let your hair get wet in the rain. Pollution, floating toxins in the air come down with the rain and settle on your scalp. This makes your scalp feel itchy and may cause dandruff. Always cover your hair. Make umbrellas or raincoats your best friends, to avoid danger to your pretty locks.
* Rinse your hair with a gentle shampoo and condition it after, if your hair happens to get drenched in the rain.
* While traveling by public transport or perhaps on a two wheeler, keep the head covered with scraf/cap,etc. This protects hair from probable damage.

After all monsoons are there to be enjoyed, so take care of skin and hair with simple steps and enjoy the rains!!!!

My Opinion: - I was chosen by BlogAdda to review Olay Total Effects 7 in One  Cream + Serum Duo. I received it about 10-12 days back and today I am reviewing it. I have been using Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream with a touch of Foundation SPF 15 and liking it a lot, I can best describe it as a light-weight Tinted Moisturiser. So I was very enthusiastic about using this Cream + Serum. The packaging is a convenient cylindrical see through  plastic can with a black pump dispenser and a golden collar around the pump. The cap is clear plastic and it closes with a click which means it is safe to be carried around in my purse. But I would prefer a normal tube packaging over a pump dispenser as these have backfired on me :/

                         The fragrance is mild but sweet, kind of floral which I don't think will irritate sensitive noses. The texture is soft and creamy and the consistency is that of a light-weight cream. I was skeptical when I pumped out the cream for the first time, it looked very thick and heavy. But to my surprise, this Olay Cream + Serum is light on my skin and does not make my skin oily or greasy, on the contrary it gives a velvety glow to my skin. In air-conditioned environment my skin looks fresh for about 5-6 hours but in a non air-conditioned environment my skin feels a little greasy and gets shiny after about 4 hours, so I can say this cream fairs well on my oily skin. This cream + serum contains SPF 15 which is quite low but that's also an added advantage for many lazy people.

                      I wash my face with a face wash, then I use a toner and then I use this cream + serum on my face on dots, just a single pump is enough for my face and neck. I massage it gently on my skin and it easily spreads and get absorbed into my skin in a couple of minutes, this cream  serum does not sit on top of my skin. I use a foundation/bb cream on top of it after say 5 mins but at times I just wear this cream + serum alone with a light dusting of loose powder. Ofcourse I have to touch up post lunch but that's it. I sweat profusely upon applying this cream but it gets absorbed into my skin, the sweating is gone and my skin feels smooth and silky to the touch (no I am not a Narc :P and don't keep touching my face). This cream is easily to blend into the skin and one full pump is what is required for my face and neck. So I think this meager quantity of 20 gms will last me 30-40 days. The best thing about this cream + serum is that it works well as a makeup base. Foundation glides over it like a dream, blends well and gives a flawless finish. A cheap makeup base since it also minimizes the ugly pores around my nose and cheeks.


                          Now coming to its 7 claims, 1. fine lines and wrinkles- fortunately I don't have any, so comments, 2. uneven tone- not sure since I am using it since 10-12 days but surely it brightens up the skin, 3. age spots- again no comments since I do not have age spots but I have pimple marks which might fade out with regular use over a longer period of time, 4. uneven texture- gives velvety smooth skin <3, 5. dryness- works as a great moisturiser, gives the required moisture to my oily skin <3, 6. dullness- gives a radiant glow upon application <3, 7. pores- I love how it diminishes my ugly pores <3 and on top of these 7 benefits, it works very well as a makeup base/primer, it way cheaper than bases/primers and the best thing about this cream is that it didn't break me out <3<3<3


* Affordable and Easily Available

* Fragrance is sweet and mild

* Gives required moisture to the skin

* Minimizes pores effectively

* Gives a velvety glow to the skin

* Gives a smooth and silky feel

* Brightens up the skin upon application

* A single pump is enough for my full face and neck, hence 20 gm will last me a good 30-40 days

* Works very well as a makeup base

* The packaging is much bigger compared to the contents (20 gms)

* Didn't give me breakouts :)


* Pump dispenser might dis-function, tube packaging is more convenient

* Might not provide adequate moisture for dry skin beauties

* Contains Parabens

* SPF 15 is very low sun protection

               I rate Olay Total Effects 7 in One Cream + Serum Duo 4.25 out 5, it's a  good moisturiser and suits my skin well. Didn't break me out and I love the off-white and yellow marbleized pattern the cream and serum creates inside the see through plastic can. Recommended to beauties who appreciate a soft and smooth skin

Hope this review helped you in some and do leave behind your sweet comments and also share with us your experience with Olay products. Thank you and have a great Sunday :)
