Omved Taruni Skin Pack Review

Hi Beauties,

I have been wanting to write a review on this for a such a long time. But just not got the time :P Anyway, who doesn't love face packs. I love it because its a great way to pamper your skin and you can also relax a while from the crazy life you live in :P Today, I am reviewing Omved Taruni Skin Pack Review. The best part about this face pack is that it is free from Parabens, sulphates, silicones, glycols, phthalates, synthetic colors or perfumes. How awesome is that???

What is claims:

Proprietary ayurvedic medicine Omved Taruni Skin Pack is a nutrient-rich herbal mud pack to help you enjoy a younger, smoother and brighter complexion.

Ingredients and Directions to Use:

My thoughts:

This pack comes in a foil packing. I would loved if it would have come in a plastic container. Much easier for storage. As per instructions, I store it in refrigerator. This a powder face pack that you need to mix with water and apply it. The powder is a little grainy and this is great because you can use it doubles up as a scrub plus face pack. The smell is herbal. Which I like. I find the smell to be relaxing. I do not know if all will like the smell.  I simply apply it and leave it to dry. And then remove with water. Then I have super soft and glowing skin. 

I really like the fact that is very simple to use. It is not a pack that specifies you to mix other products such as  milk or any other ingredient. Its just mix it water and apply. Very simple and yet very effective in giving results.    I don't think that this will remove sun tan, it doesn't claim so either. Though its a mud pack it did not dry my skin. Trust me, I have normal to dry skin. I follow with Omved Moisturiser and I love the effects. The brightness is there for two days. 

The price is another added advantage of this product. Its is priced at Rs.120 for 25gms of product. Some may think its pricey for the amount of product you get. But you will need very little amount for your whole face and neck. So this can last a really long time. Being free from so many harmful components, I am not complaining :D

This is how it looks:

Its a simple pack that gives good results. I like it. I am impressed with Omved products I have. After trying the products, I also ordered for Ultra Light Day and Night Moisturiser and I love it. I will review it soon. 

What I liked:
Free from Chemicals
Loved the smell
Makes skin soft and glowing
You will need very little for your face and neck and so it will last really long.

What I dint like:
Packaging. Would have been great if it had come in a container.
Need to store in fridge.

You can buy Omved products from websites such as Healhkart and Urbantouch. You can also buy it from their official online store here

Price: Rs.120 for 25 gms
Shelf Life: 2 years.

I loved the product and I am surely repurchasing it.

Recommendation: Yes!! Do try it and it won't hurt your pocket.

The hair is then shampooed and the Cysteine complex is applied to the hair. The complex is allowed to process in your hair as it starts it work on making your hair healthier and more lustrous.

Faces Nail Enamel- All That Glitters- Review- NOTD

Hi Beauties,

Sorry for not being around for a while. I had quite a hell lot of work and completely stressed out from it. Then went to a small trip with my family had a good time and now I am back :D I missed you guys :-* 

Anyway, Remember I told here I will be getting a gold glitter polish also. I got this sometime back and took pictures but was not able to post it because of my tight schedule. This polish is from Faces and the shade name is All That Glitters :D

This is a wonderful polish. I love the gold glitter. The brush is small but easy to apply. No streaking. And the polish stays really long. Removing this polish was a little difficult. But with the help of Hip Hop Nail Polish remover pads I was able to remove them easily.

This is priced at Rs.99 for 7ml. I got it for Rs.84 from Stylecraze.com. The quality is amazing and bigger size bottles are also available. The shade range is amazing. If you are a nail polish lover grab a few from this brand :)

I have three coats in the below pics. These are great to be used on top of other polishes as well. But I like these to be used alone as well :)

Repurchase: I already have bought another shade from this brand.

Recommendation: Ofcourse :)

Deborah 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick- Shade No- 5 Review- Swatches

Finally, pulled myself to do this review. Today I am going to review Deborah 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick.

What it claims:

I couldn't find this on the company website. I found some details from urbantouch.com:

Want a settled matte look for your lips! Try on the new 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick that comes with a special glide-on formula. It applies smoothly on lips without emphasizing lip lines while keeping them soft and supple.

Get the feeling of true diva...

My experience:

Since I have dry lips I don't prefer matte lipsticks.  I am more of person who likes glossy lips. So, this is my first matte lipstick. Lets start with the packaging. The packing is simple. Which I like. The lipstick locks very nicely and so do not have to worry about taking with you while travelling.

The shade is a gorgeous Red with orange undertones (I think) I am sorry, very bad at explaining colors. Really gorgeous shade. The formula is soft and comes totally matte. 

It does stay long as promised. Since its a matte formula it stays for more 6 to 7 hours on me. Another advantage is that I did not find it drying though I have dry lips. No cracks or peels on lips after I use.

For this particular shade you need to have scrubbed lips and use a lip liner to avoid bleeding. Orelse this will not look good. I really like the face that it brightens up my face. But the problem is I am not a bright lipstick lover. This is too bold for me. But if you are person who loves bright lipsticks or a person who loves matte lipsticks this is a great buy.

I have not used any lip liner for the lip swatch to show the actual color. When you use a good lip liner it can look even more pretty. I applied lip balm and blotted it before applying the lipstick. This is just one coat.

The shade no 5 is a bright red with orange tones. Too bold for my taste. The formula is really good and if you are person who loves matte and long lasting lipsticks get it.

Price: Rs.595. Available at much lesser prices at many online stores.

Recommendation: People who like matte lippies can get. If you have dry lips that can flake easily skip it.

Repurchase: No. I am not a fan of matte lippies. But I really like the quality of the lipstick. So will definitly check out other ranges from this brand :)
