Rain Forest Volume Shampoo contains Pracaxi oil, guarana seed extract and community fair trade aloe Vera. It's claims to be Eco-friendly and doesn't contain Silicones, sulphates, colorants or parabens.The fact that i love about body shop is they are strictly against animal testing.

BEAUTY TIPS- Mask of multani mitti(fuller's earth) and sandalwood powder

To tighten pore, remove acne marks and enhance skin tone and texture use a mask made of multani mitti (fuller's earth) and Chandan powder(sandal wood powder). This mask is terrific for oily skin. I have genuine fondness for this mask as it clarifies my oily-combi skin from impurities and makes it tremendously soft and supple. Although it does dry my skin yet i think this issue can be undoubtedly resolved by utilizing a moisturizer.

Multani Mitti-
Also known as Fuller's Earth is highly effective in absorbing dead cells from the top layer of the skin and simultaneously improving circulation. On the other hand, because of the presence of hydrated aluminium silicate it is not suitable for dry skin, as it tends to make the skin more dry.

Chandan powder-
Also called sandal wood powder has many significant curative properties such as lightening acne marks, spots, blemishes and cutting down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has a soothing fragrance to it . Makes skin soft and imparts a healthy glow.

Brightens the skin , helps remove blackheads, removes tan, fades age spots and acne scars.

Rose water-
It has anti-inflammatory properties that reduces redness of skin from irritation and heat.Aids in eliminating oil and dirt from clogged pores. The aroma from roses is said to be a strong mood enhancer and a de-stresser that makes you look and feel fresh.

  1. Multani mitti ( Fuller's Earth) 1 tbsp
  2. Chandan powder( sandal wood powder) 1 tsp.
  3. Lemon juice - Use half a lemon.
  4. Rose water - Add accordingly to make a paste of a fine thick consistency

L'Oreal Liss Ultime Shampoo.

Smoothing shampoo for unmanageable hair.

I got my hair straightened for the first time 2 months ago since then i have been using L'Oreal Xtenso shampoo, masque and serum that worked very well on my straightened hair. As the L'Oreal Xtenso Shampoo got over and was out of stock my hair dresser asked me to use L'Oreal  Liss Ultime shampoo, before doing so i thought why not i go through the online reviews and find out what others have to say about this product.To my amazement i came across countless negative reviews and between them were few good ones, in the view of that i thought of giving it a try as i had no other resort because L'Oreal Xtenso Shampoo was out of stock and would only be available after 2 weeks.To find out what happened to my hair after using the the L'Oreal Liss Ultime shampoo you will need to read further......................

MAKEUP- smokey eyes.


Smoky eyes are everyone's favorite. To copy the bevy of celebs sporting smoldering, smoky eyes go through the the following guidelines and in no time you will have Eyes to die for.

1. Apply a cream concealer over your eyelid to create a smooth base for your eye shadow.

2. Use a pencil liner (black or gray looks best) to trace your top lash line from the inner corner to the outer. Then, use the same pencil to dot between your lower lashes. Smudge both lash lines with a cotton swab or an eyeliner brush.

3. Sweep powder shadow (brown, gray and dark green all work with black or gray liner) over your lid and into your crease, blending the color up and outward

4. Dust a lighter, neutral eye shadow (such as ivory) over just your brow bone.

5. Finish with two coats of black mascara.

TIP: To prevent color from fading and give your lids a more shimmery finish, pat a cream shadow over the concealer on your lid first, wait five minutes, then top with a matching powder shadow.

 Valentine's day special

On this Valentine's day Paint your lips in deep red or hot pink.

BEAUTY TIPS- moisturizing

A basic law of beauty is that everyone, no matter what skin type, should moisturize. As it is important to maintain the skin's moisture content, you should use a moisturizer daily. Even more special care should be taken in winters, as the skin tends to become dry fast because of the cold. So in winter, you should massage your body twice or thrice a day with moisturizer.
