I always tend to snack on the most unhealthy things in the evening! If evening hunger pangs bother you too here’s something that will help you make the delicious switch from junk food and caffeine!
The wonderful Mumbai dabbawalas got me the Saffola Active Soups @saffolafitfoodiewhich have 5x more fibre. Low on calories, delicious and a #TastyWayToStayFit is what #Saffola promises you with their new range of soups that keep you full the entire evening. Here’s how it reached us:

The three varieties of soups that reached us are the Red Tomato Soup, Chatpata SweetCorn Soup and the Spicy Manchow Soup. The Tomato Soup was rich and creamy whereas the Sweet Corn Soup was just like an authentic corn soup, hot and comforting. For those who love a little spice in their lives, the Spicy Manchow Soup is a great choice. Overall, this is a great option to avoid unhealthy snacking or as we call it ‘boredom’ snacking.

Saffola Active Soups are easily available at your nearby supermarkets or general stores.

Product Review: Organic Harvest Activ Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser

img_8306

Organic Harvest is an Indian brand which has an entire range of organic skin care, body care and hair care products. Organic products really excite me as I know that they are much more sensitive on the skin and free of chemicals.

The packaging of the product is quite cool. It comes in a plastic bottle with an integrated silicon cleansing brush. So you can use the product and then cover the brush with the cap provided.

The ingredients of this product as mentioned on the bottle are Aqua, Organic Acai berry extract, Organic Decyl glucoside, Organic cocoamphodiacetate, Olive oil, Liquid Shea butter and fragrance.

The bottle also mentions clear instructions on how to use the product. 
You need to pump a generous amount and apply the foam in upward strokes. Usually a single pump is more than enough for the entire face. After you have massaged the entire face, rinse it off thoroughly.

The product is quite effective to remove dirt and excessive oil from the skin. It’s not too dry and cleanses the pores out well. Avoid using it on acne prone area as the brush might irritate the sensitive skin. Overall, the product is great to exfoliate and cleanse the skin.

Product Review: Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum

Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum
Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum

Rains = Frizz!

Everyone is trying to fix their frizzy hair in the monsoons and here is an ideal product which will help you do that easily. We recently tried the Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum and were mighty impressed with it.

A coin sized application of the product helps ease out the frizz post a hair wash. Apply the product when your hair is wet and detangle it with a wide toothed comb. If your hair is extremely frizzy, apply it from the root to downwards, if not that frizzy then you can simply apply it at the ends of your hair and simply wipe off the extra serum on the rest of your hair. You can let your hair air dry or blow dry post this.

The ingredients of the product include Cylclomethicone, Dimethiconol, Light Liquid Paraffin, Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate, Iso Propyl Myristate, Perfume, Vitamin E and Almond Oil.  The almond oil keeps the fragrance subtle and pleasant.

Reasonably priced, effective and long lasting make this product a smart buy!

Here are two looks I tried to create with this serum. I usually have frizzy wavy hair, so I tried to curl them and let them down straight without ironing them.

Note: I haven’t used any other product except the Streax Pro Hair Serum after the wash and air dried my hair.

Tip: Avoid towel drying your hair before you apply serum. Rub a few drops of the serum between your palms well, and then evenly distribute onto your hair for best results.

 

Product Review: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50

The best investment you can make, is in a good sunblock. And our favourite is this Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 50+ Review & Price
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 50+ Review & Price

The sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. The best part about it is that light weight and a non shiny finish, so it doesn’t make your skin appear oily once you apply it. A small pea size amount is enough for your entire face.

It is water proof, sweat proof and has an extremely light fragrance which is great! One of the other positives is that it doesn’t leave a white cast on your skin after application which most other sunscreens do.

The packaging of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is quite sturdy and sleek. A white and blue tube with a semi-transparent screw cap. The nozzle is ideal for removing adequate amount of the cream for every use.

Overall, we would definitely recommend this product for avoiding skin burns and skin tanning.

Tip: Apply sunscreen generously before going outdoors. It takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes for your skin to absorb the sunscreen and protect you. If you wait until you are in the sun to apply sunscreen, your skin is unprotected and can burn. Use sunscreen on an everyday basis for keeping your skin healthy and sun-proof!

Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick

Lakme has launched a range of shades in their new long lasting 9 to 5 range.  We got our hands on the MR6 Vermillion Fired Shade.  Here’s what we thought of it.

lakme 9 to 5 lipstickA bright shade of orange, this one is vibrant and ideal for day wear. Lakme primarily launched this segment of lipsticks for the office goers so that the color lasts through the day. What we loved about the lipstick was the Matte texture and the superb metallic packaging.  When swatched on the arm, the shade is smooth and creamy but it can get patchy on the lips and needs multiple coats. The lipstick does last for about 4-5 hours, definitely less than they claim but it makes for a great option for everyone who loves neon shades.
