My Experience with Kofol Immunity Range

I am a person who always believes in natural things and when it comes to health, Ayurveda has to come on top. After I came across this Kofol Immunity Range by Charak Pharma, I never looked back to any alternative. I personally have a dust allergy and I suffer from cough and cold, throat irritation very frequently with weather changes. I started taking the KOFOL Immunity tablet regularly and KOFOL chewable tablet when I had a sore throat or any throat discomfort. KOFOL gargle also came in handy when it comes to instant relief from throat irritation.

Even I introduced this entire KOFOL Immunity range to my family & my 6 & a half years old kid. We have been relying on Ayurvedic cough syrup since I was a kid and Charak Pharma made it so convenient for us to get all the benefits of like Guduchi, Haldi, Triphala Guggul, Shunti, Manjishtha,Chitrak, Pippali, and Black pepper even in this recent time.

Phone rings- tring! tring!

Me- Yes Mom!

Mom-You have to attend a family get together after your office tomorrow. . .

Me- what? Not again mom. I have to carry another dress along! I cant

Mom- Darling “you have to” I said !!

Me- Uurhhh…Okay

We often get confused what to wear in small family parties especially when we are going there, right after the office. Some of us take separate bags along to carry party outfits! But what if we choose that one outfit that goes well with almost everything? Yeah. You would definitely call me a nerd but this is how I have been attending any sort of parties’ ever since I discovered this trick.

Well, as you can see I have styled a bright red kurta from a brand called Vishudh with both jeans and palazzo pants. Here I chose to wear the kurta on top of jeans for my work. But don’t go with this pic, I am definitely not a sunglass person (used here for some good click though)

How to style a red kurta from work to family get together

For the second look, I paired the same red kurta with an off white palazzo, dupatta, and a pair of ethnic jhumkas with a deep red lip. I personally believe putting on a bright lip with any sort of dress can alleviate the entire look instantly! Are you also a lipstick person like me by the way?

How to style a red kurta from work to family get together

The outfit I chose is a very modish and sultry kind of cotton, straight fit red kurta with elbow-length sleeve. The material is pure cotton. Hence I do not even feel heavy during my office hours and can easily attend parties with the same vibrant red kurta by just styling it with proper accessories and bottom wear.

The current situation can be out of control but let’s not our mental peace shift its place. I have been reading through different types of books since a long time now. To be hones it also took time to get into the routine. After all, we can always keep our knowledge window open to let the light of hope shine through it right? So I am going to list down some of my favorite books that would help to keep you engaged as well as motivated. Here we go-

1.How To Use Your Healing Power- by Dr. Joseph Murphy

I didn’t have any idea how the whole world can be driven by the forces of the healing power of our mind. When I saw this book I felt this book might be on the spiritual side, but basically I needed some book to calm down my mind. I wanted to start reading with something at least. This is in fact a good book to begin with the reading habit and gradually developing the inner senses and positive affirmation techniques to improve health, relationships, and self-expression.

2.Who Will Cry When You Die? -by Robin Sharma

The name says it all I guess! This book is perfect for self realization that we often slip by to shade light on others views and opinions.

3.Ikigai: The Japanese secret to a long and happy life-by Hector Garcia

Here comes one of my long awaited book. The name might be confusing but the aim of the book is not! Ikigai is the Japanese word to live a happy, long life and whats more? For that you have to go through the book .Highly recommended for them who are aiming at a purposeful life.

4.Attitude Is Everything: Change Your Attitude … Change Your Life! -by Jeff Keller

If you are following me on Instagram then you probably noticed me posting some book lines on story and many of you asked me which book I am reading. So again, this is also a very basic yet theoretically defined to the point that why we should adjust our attitude depending on the situation or circumstances.

5.Good Vibes, Good Life -by Vex King

I have seen so many people raving about this book and even I am a big fat fan of vex king and his motivational quotes, so has to be in my book stash. I personally don’t own this book yet as it stays out of stock mostly but thanks to the Amazon prime day, because it came back in stock that too with a huge discount!

I still remember when I first saw the newly launched Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask on their website and couldn’t wait any further to grab it. I was insanely looking for a good Vitamin C enrich product to incorporate in my skincare regimen for so long. Luckily I got my hand on this one and nothing can be more coincidental than getting that desired item from one of my preferred brands . So in this post, I will be talking about the Vitamin C sleeping mask and my experience using the product.

Product Description

Price & Quantity

599 INR for 100 gm

Skin Type

All skin types including Sensitive skin (which is an added advantage)

Texture

Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask comes in a transparent foam like soft and frothy texture. I just loved the texture since I opened the jar. Smells hevenly and after applying on skin it feels like a mist on face. It claims to contain Vitamin C and Aloe Vera Extract which supply moisture to the skin and replenish Lost Radiance. It also helps to restore skin elasticity, reducing any early signs of Aging, maintains tones and strengthens the skin cells.

Ingredients

My experience using the Mamaearth Vitamin C Sleeping Mask

The packaging is very basic like the other Mamaearth products that come with a white frosted pastic jar with a screw lid. I believe it helps the product to get contaminated with any external fungal reaction as you can tighten the cap as necessary. It also comes with a spatula which is so cute and make the application even much easier.

The Vitamin C mask has a frothy texture which I found really different and unique. Trust on me, you will also surprise too to see its texture. It has a clear aqua gel consistency and a soothing aroma (which I truly fell in love with already). As the name suggests, it is specifically for night time, before sleeping/going to bed. So that the product can sit and work on the skin overnight.

There are no other chemical listed on the ingredients list apart from the main ingredients Aqua, Aloe vera juice, Vitamin C and some preservatives to maintain the shelf life. Also to be noted, natural ingredients might trigger existing allergies, so do a patch test always if you are someone with common allergic problems.

How I use it

I use Vitamin C Mask as a last step of my night time routine, and this pack is so light and watery that it takes time to set into the skin. I don’t know why to use it for only night time, when one can get the benefit from using them in the morning also. Because some research also says that Vitamin C products work best when applied in the morning before heading out for the day, because UV radiation is generally high that time.

Also it sets like spraying mist on skin and a very slight cooling effect right after the application. I love the way this mask deeply nourishes my skin and makes it look plump the next morning. Initially I thought how it would work on my sensitive skin but (touch wood) I haven’t experienced anything discomforting till now.

Vitamin C sleeping mask is always a great way to combat any damaged skin from UV radiation, free radicals and dark spots and help to bring back the natural glow and illumination. Have been using from quite a few days now and a big thumbs up for this product from my side. Do let me know which Vitamin C skincare are you following lately.

See you in my next post! TaDaa

I am little bit crazy about trying out new body washes. Here I showed up again with a body wash review. One brand that I adore very much for its different kinds of body washes is none other than The Body Shop.

I bought the Almond milk and Honey shower cream back in the winter months when I was having a serious dryness all over my body. I reached out to one of the body shop store nearby and thanks to the lady who rescued me from this! Initially I get through soaps and some drugstore shower gels like nobody’s business. But lately I realized that my skin is getting drier day by day. It almost lost its smoothness and life. After switching my shower gels to the Body shop shower cream, I felt nothing but to instantly blog about, so here it is.

Shall I use the body wash?

If you are someone with sensitive to dry skin then you can definitely go ahead and use it

Price & Quantity

Priced at INR 450 for a 250 ml of product. I know a lot of you might be thinking a little up there, but this product will last you a really long time because it lathers beautifully. You actually need a very small amount of product.

You can purchase the product here

My Personal Experience

First of all, this body wash smells of very mild, but couldn’t exactly relate to anything. It is enriched with almond milk and honey that nourishes and moisturizes the skin from within. It does not make my skin feel dry or flaky, even if I happen to use it every single day. Also good for sensitive skin beauties.One thing I also noticed is that I don’t necessarily have to use a body lotion after using the shower cream. Someday I actually forgot when I am in a hurry but what about the rest of the days?

Yeah you know I feel lethargic someday and someday I am like okay, I can skip it anyway. But surprisingly that does not make any changes to my skin. It gives a fresh feel and lock in moisture. I have seen the improvement in my skin ever since I started using this product. Also, the bottle comes with an effective flip top cap so you are not gonna end up with more product in your hand than required.

Shower Cream range I tried from The Body Shop

I got my hands on the 3 range so far and here I am listing down all the details below-

1. Almond Milk and Honey Shower Cream

2. Rich Plum Shower Gel

3. British Rose Shower Gel

Lastly, to be honest, every product from The body shop that I have tried till date has been of excellent quality. They put a variety of irresistible natural items into their ingredients and that is why their bath range is literally no exception.

I am a person with combination skin and I tend to reach out to any face powder way too often. Especially in summers my skin becomes absolutely an oil tank from its state of desert in winters. Though Maybelline Fit Me Compact is not a new launch or something, but ever since I used it I just loved it. It is my second purchase for a face powder and I almost carry it everywhere. So lately I felt of sharing my experience using this powder to kind of help you sort out your purchase decision.

Shade of the Compact

330 TOFFEE

Quantity & Price

8.5g for 480 INR

Skin Type

Good for Oily to combination skin. But, can also be used for Normal skin.

Mabelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Powder
Shade: 330 Toffee

Product Description

The Maybelline Fit Me MATTE+PORELESS Compact come in a pretty black square shaped packaging with a see through glass lid attached with a mirror inside. Also it is not so flimsy that it would break after a single soft fall. The pan is pretty enough though and it will take you several months to hit the pan on the product even if you use it daily. Being little bit costly than a drugstore brand should be, you might go for an alternative. But trust me it is the perfect compact for those having a combination to oily skin.

Toffee is the exact match for my dusky toned face. Work well when I don’t need a brighter look but I want to take down the oily skin problems. When applied on skin it gives a flawless look for the next few hours. The compact can be applied with a damp sponge to use it as a foundation. It actually stays longer and provides good coverage for those unwanted blemishes on skin. Do check out your shade before buying it.

My Experience using Fit Me MATTE+PORELESS Compact

This is my second purchase for a face compact and I have no complain for this so far. Even I have been carrying it almost everywhere for my touch up. Especially in the humid weather when I can’t even think of using any foundation, this Fit Me compact came to the rescue. After applying my sunscreen I just press it all over my face. It provides the perfect matte look and hides my pores (though I don’t have major open pore problems) perfectly.

The brand actually claims to stay up to 12 hours but I personally noticed it stays good roughly up to 3 to 4 hours. IDK, it might be due to the humidity or something else, but this is how I feel after using it for almost 6 months now. Also looking at the price point, INR 490 is quite fair enough though when considering the quantity of the product and the fact that it comes with a mirror. You can always check on website to avail some great discounts on it. I got it around INR 350 apprx from an online sale. Also there are a lot of shades introduced to the Fit Me Range by the Brand Maybelline to suite diverse skin tones.

Hi guys, I hope you are all doing well!

Today I will be reviewing Nivea hand cream since it has been in my pending list from a long time. So, as soon as I got something really good yet reasonable hand cream, I thought of sharing about the product with you all.

Basically I am a person who tends to wash hands so often and having said that I literally mean that I also tend to reach out to creams at the same time. But, I have never owned a hand cream until now. When I saw Nivea had introduced their range of hand creams and that too unbelievably at a very affordable range, it instantly caught my attention. I thought that it was the perfect time to get my hands on them as I have only been sticking to my face creams to moisturize my hands before. Nivea Hand Creams come in 3 variants, and I picked up only two from them, i.e. Indulging Beeswax and Refreshing Aloe Vera.

Net Quantity & Price 

90/- for 75 ml

Variants

  1. Indulging Glycerine & Beeswax (For all skin types)
  2. Soothing Glycerine & Olive(For very dry skin)
  3. Refreshing Glyserine & Aloe Vera (For dry skin)

Today I thought of posting something very important part related to my lifestyle. That is nothing but parenting. If you guys are following me on Instagram or Facebook then you already know that I am also a mother. Ever since I became a mother, my entire lifestyle has been changed. I wont hesitate also telling the fact that initially it troubled me a lot, to change everything as per the baby’s schedule. But then I gradually learned how to adopt these changes and everything seemed normal with time.

Similarly after being a mother the first thing that scared me was how to choose the perfect babycare products for my little one. This was one of the horrible experiences to find out the best for my baby’s soft and gentle skin. I asked my family and friends circle but ended up getting the same recommendations of some drugstore brands. But I did not stop searching out something better. One day I discovered the brand Mamaearth while scrolling down through the internet. I saw their baby care range and also gone through the reviews of what other moms are saying about the range. I picked up their newly launched Milky Soft Baby Face Cream. SO let’s jump into the review now.
