Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Dragon Fruit

Hey All,

So sorry I didn't post yesterday. Was a little but busy with office and some home work (LOL)..

I was at the chemist on Monday, just picking up some regular tabs, when I passed the Nivea Lip Balm counter.. & I did a double take. "What is this thing in pink?"

It was Nivea Lip Balm Fruity Shine in Dragon Fruit.  Now you all know how much I liked the other Nivea Lip balms. So I had to get this. & I did.

This lip balm is pretty pink in color, with shimmer! Unlike Cherry (Fuchsia Pink) and Strawberry (Red) - this is pink and is infused with lots of shimmer. It is also much glossier than the other two.

The review will come up in week - after I have tested this through & through.


  1. Haha...

    Even I was wondering..You mentioned in the post as Nivea and the label reads Labello.

  2. @Poornima: They are both the same product - only sold by different brand names globally. There is some problem in my PC.. The other day I was getting error msgs in chinese!

  3. yay! i can comment now :P My strawberry one is soon gettoing over will wait for its review.

  4. i am more of body shop lip balm fan.Will wait for your review so that i can think about it.

    Missed your post yesterday.By the way how do you manage to write post in office?

  5. babe
    my auntie is coming over from india and wants to know if there's anything i'd going to say nivea lip balms but is there anything else you can think of?

  6. well i mean recommend lol...indian stuff you like

  7. @Rati: Glad u can comment now. :D.. They both are different tints. Cherry is more red. This is pink. Will put up review soon :)

  8. @Anamika: I have not tried any TBS lip balm so I can't compare. But I love these babies from Nivea :)

    I don't write from office. I generally make my posts over the weekend - at least the drafts. I reach office about 30 mins early than official timing (margin time - u have to have this in mumbai traffic) so i refine the posts then and put them up. As it is it doesn't take me more than 30 mins per post, but that too is a lot hence that is the reason why I just do one post per day and don't do swatches. :)

  9. @Simpleelegance: So cool, I am sure you'll love these lip balms. Other stuff.. just giving you a list - choose whatever sounds nice to you

    1. Colorbar eyeliners - I glide (they have 5 colors - brown, green, blue, black and purple)Rs. 325/-
    2. Maybelline's new studio eyeliners - the grey and green one is nice - Rs. 200
    3. Colorbar's blushes - I like Plum Brown, but other shades are good too :) - Rs. 250 /-
    4. Colorbar lipsticks - Bare & Irish Rose (I really like these two - both are cool pink toned) Rs. 200/-

    This is all I could think of right now. Other stuff like Tinted moisturisers & all I am sure are much better where u live.

    If I think of something else - I let u know. Also if you want something in a particular category let me know.

  10. But truly speaking i feel you put your heart into it.:)

  11. @Anamika: That is so sweet! I do enjoy doing this, and I do the best I can. That comment really touched my heart Anamika. Thks a lot. :)

    It means a lot to me. :D

  12. shimmer? oh wow! i bet this product looks awesome on you. somehow i feel it will suit you really well!
    and inspired by the cleanliness of your three column blog, i have made mine so as well. :) thanks.

  13. Yipee!!!!So glad they r introducing more shades!!I hope its a nice and fun colour!!

  14. btw is the maybelline one a gel eyeliner?

  15. @Rima: Yea, its got shimmer - but just a hint. So far it is looking very natural on me. Even more than cherry. It is the exact same tint as my pigmented lips.

    So cool! Glad u liked the layout and adopted a similar one yourself. Will def chk it out :)

    @Simran: I'll get it over today for you to chk it out! Even I am happy they are getting more shades. i really like this prdt :)

    @SE: Maybelline hasn't launched its gel liners yet. These are pencil liners.

  16. This sounds so NICE! I have tried strawberry n cherry..they are ok but didn't like them enough to buy them again. Might try this one though if the flavor is yummy :)


  17. I haven't really tried it yet, but I know dat it has got 2 b gud, after all it is Nivea.
    And the pink color is just so attractive, and the shine makes me go gaga over it!
    But I don't know from where 2 get it from!

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
