ELF Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara - Review

What they claim: Achieve glossy, shiny, healthy-looking lashes and brows with the infused long wearing conditioning agents in our wet gloss lash & brow mascara. Looking pulled together has never been easier!


Directions: Gently unscrew Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara applicator and work clear mascara from root to tip or shape and separate brows. Apply second coat if desired.


Ingredients: Aqua(Water), PVP, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Polyacrylic Acid, PEG-8, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
 
Price: Rs. 129/-
 
Pros:
1. This has both eyelash & eyebrow gel, in separate containers with individual brushes. Both sides are labelled at the bottom, and I am pretty sure, when this gets over, I am gonna be washing and keeping this package for the brushes.
 
2. It dried without any white flakes and there was no sticky feeling
 
3. It did make my lashes look slightly more darker, longer and also holds a curl well. The end result is a very natural look with well defined lashes. And it does not clump at all.
 
4. My brows too looked well defined and the hold lasts a good 6-7 hours. The brush applicator for the brows is good and you can easily coat and comb all hair in one swipe. Brows are not stiff, just well defined with good hold.
 
5. Fragrance free.
 
Cons:
1. The eyelash gel stings the eyes. It just happened to me once, I have been a little careful since then when using this.
 
2. It takes up to a minute to dry and set. During this entire one minute you will have to be careful not to blink, or else it will enter your eye and sting like hell.
 
3. If you fill your eyebrows before using this gel, the brush picks up the color and over time, the gel gets tinted with that color.
 
4. The product quantity is a little less compared to other brands - but I actually see this as a Pro. As it is, we are advised to throw away mascaras after 3-6 months to avoid infection. I think my tube will be over way before that, as I am using this almost daily these days for the day.
 
5. Its not water-proof.
 
6. Has parabens. And this product goes pretty close to the eyes. For those who are allergic.
 
Will I re-purchase: Unless I find something better that also delivers just as well and is at an equally good price, I'll stick with this product.  I am giving my lashes a break this monsoon from all the lengthening, volumising waterproof mascaras and this is perfect for the job.
 
This is economical and does the job well enough for me. I am pleased with this product.

  6. Is E.L.F. avavilable in New Delhi? Did you buy it from their website? I am not sure whether clear mascara would make my small eyelashes look longer...like the black one does.

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…
