Pros:

1. Love, love the color - the balm itself is a deep burgundy-plum shade. It looks quite deep, but on the lips it is a very light reddish shade that looks very natural. Perfect considering the latest trend these days in lips - deep, autumn shades
2. This one, thankfully, smells really nice too (I hated the Dragon fruit smell) and has very fine shimmer.
3. As a lipbalm it works pretty well plus it has SPF 10 (not a lot actually, but something is better than nothing)

Cons:


1. Hmmm.. Nothing! I love Nivea lipbalms & love the fact that they come out with such great tinted lipbalms. I am missing the Cherry one though that they have discontinued. :-(


For swatches: go here


Will I repurchase: Yes. :-)

  3. @AOYV: Sure, I'll try & put up some swatches this weekend. I wld actually love to put swatches on all my posts, but a daily 14 hour workday leaves me with little time & I have to prioritise other commitments with the blog. As you must have guessed, the blog since it is a hobby get relegated to the back burner :P.

  15. hey tanveer i just love ur reviews...
    but tell me something in this review first u said it gives red tint but in then u said "pretty in pink"....so basically wat tint is it....

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Ishita: LOL, please read carefully. "pretty in pink" is in the "What it claims" section, meaning that the company Nivea claims on the prdt that it is pink..

    I feel it is more on the deeper red, almost berry side.

  17. @Jelly Beans: i hope you liked it :)

    @Amel: Thks a lot.. umm, I stay in Mumbai, here the lip balms are very easily available at almost all general stores, malls like hypercity & inorbit, beauty stores. It's all over the place. I hope you find them too :D

    @Bhumika; Glad u liked it :)

    @CZ: :D.. i hope u like it

    @Poohkie: Yup, they discontinued cherry.. :(

    @Rakshanda: hehheeh, I love niva lip balms :).. Hey, thks a lot babes :)

    @Retnu: The color is close, tho it is redder.. cherry was a very deep red.. Even I hate the smell of dragon fruit, luckily this one smells better :)

    @Gio: It was one of my favs too! Luckily I have a tube with me so it is ok.. This one's nice too, I think you'll like it :)

  18. hey thanx....
    i am confused between the strawberry flavor and this one.....
    can u plsss suggest which one is redder and more natural....
    thanx and sorry for the trouble;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Ishita: LOL.. How can it be more redder & natural too at the same time?? See, strawberry is lighter & therefore looks more natural. Pomegrante is a deeper red & goes almost berry - red on me.. now this is how they appear on me, I have really no clue how they wld look on you as I don't know yr skin color & all..

    Besides a lot of stores have testers so u cld check those out before purchasing.

  20. hey thanx a lot tanveer...........
    hey i was wondering... I have heard that applying lipsticks can ruin the original shade of your lips....does that apply to tinted lipbalms as well...for they have color tooo.....and is it safe to keep changing lipbalms ....the way changing skin creams is not advisable at alll....

    ReplyDelete
  21. @ishita: I have been using lipsticks/glosses & lip balms for 2 yrs now. I have not experienced any such change in lip pigmention. & I keep trying different lotions & lip balms all the time - it has never affected me adversely.

    I cannot say if you will have a similar experience. Your skin may or may not be more sensitive. Please exercise your own discretion when making any changes to your makeup & skincare routine. Your skin is your responsibilty.

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…
