Say bye to sun tan with “SPINZ SUN TAN REMOVER CREAM”

Hi everyone,

I have a news for you all. I’ll be now writing for a website called urbangirldom.com. It’s a very unique website for those women, who wants to read something different from what is seen everyday on the world wide web and it’s all about “Bringing every girl’s better tomorrow, today”  according to the website. I will be handling the  fashion and lifestyle section in urbangirldom.com. So hope to catch you there as well 🙂

So getting back to the post, today I will be reviewing this wonderful product called the sun tan remover by the company “SPINZ”. I hate the word skin whitening and I detest people who encourage the whole concept of becoming fair and white and what not. For me , having an even skin tone is what matters, and being dark or dusky or fair is not important in any way. Recently I came across this product through many YouTube videos and I was intrigued by the reviews that I got to know from these videos. And that’s when I decided to give it a try. Trust me guys, it was so difficult to hunt this cream, but somehow managed to get my hands on it.

CLAIMS:

This product claims to give a salon like fairness in just 5 minutes. It instantly removes the tan and gives a clear and radiant skin. It is meant for all skin types and is dermatologically tested. It clearly has been mentioned on their package that it is not a bleach and that’s what drew me toward this product.

INGREDIENTS:

The main ingredients in the cream consists of malic acid, cirtic acid, lactic acid, milk, honey and water. Apart from these, there are definitely some chemicals as well.

INSTRUCTIONS TO USE:

  • Wash your face and apply a 2 finger size of cream on your face
  • Apply a thick layer of this cream avoiding the under eye area and the eyes.
  • Massage this cream while applying and then leave the product for 5 minutes
  • After 5 minutes, wash off the cream and pat dry your face

MY EXPERIENCE:

I have a tendency to get tanned very quickly and this product has been a life savior for me. I must say it is true to what it claims. It has remarkably removed my tan, but the fresh tan and not the old tan, but with regular use, it has shown a good result. I have used this product thrice by now and I’m very happy to see my de-tanned face. The best part is, it can be used by MEN as well. I infact tried this on my brother after a lot of begging and it really did work, though not as effectively as on my face, but certainly did do some de-tanning out there.

AFTER THE USE. MY FACE DEFINITELY LOOKS DRY
AFTER THE USE. MY FACE DEFINITELY LOOKS DRY

This product should be used only once in a day and any kind of soap or face wash should be avoided for the next 6 hours after the use. I did notice a slight tingling sensation in the beginning of the application, but that’s a good thing as it was an indication that it’s working. My skin did feel a bit dry after the use, but the next day when I got up, it was all fine.

PRICE:

  • 9g Sachet: INR10
  • 25g tube: INR.49
  • 50g tube: INR89

PROS:

  • Contains no bleach, hence no eye burning for me and definitely no harm to skin
  • Budget friendly
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • True to its claims
  • Easy to use and takes only 5 minutes of your time

CONS:

  • Mild tingling sensation
  • Made the skin a little dry
  • Lack of availability

Rating: 5/5

Will I Repurchase?

I will definitely go ahead and purchase it as it can be a great product for those annoying vacation tan and college and work tan.

If you guys plan to get this or have used it, do let me know. I would love to know your experience and what you feel about SPINZ SUN TAN REMOVER CREAM. And don’t forget to follow me on URBANGIRLDOM.COM as well 🙂

Lookbook for Dresslink.Com

Hi everyone,

 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having an amazing weekend 🙂

Well a few weeks back, I had done a wishlist post for dresslink.com where I had shown you some of the awesome things that I was about to receive from Dresslink.com. If you still haven’t read that post , you can find t here https://shopaholibond.wordpress.com/2015/08/24/a-shopaholics-wishlist-dresslink-com/

So around 2 weeks back I received the package which dresslink.com guys had sent it to me for review and I was totally amazed by the prompt shipping these guys did. Since I was not in town, I had to wait for a while to shoot the LOOKBOOK which I have never ever done before in my life and you can see that lack of confidence in the pictures. LOL!!

Anyhow , I still wanted to show you guys what I received and I how i styled it up for a very casual look. But before that i would want to tell you a lil bit about the quality of the items that I received. I have ordered from many chinese online websites and a lot of time I’ve been disappointed by the items that I get as they will look completely different from how it looked on their websites. But when i got the package from Dresslink, I was rather very happy for the fact that they sent me the exact same items that I saw on their website and the quality felt amazing too. I’m not being bias here as I got these stuff for free coz they are not paying me for writing all the good things about them. But trust me guys, these stuffs are good for real.

The only thing you have to keep in mind is to be careful about what size you pick while ordering and I would advise you to pick a size bigger than your usual size as that really helps in getting the right fit for you most of the times. So let’s stop dragging this and get straightaway to the pictures.

Fringed chiffon kimono

You can buy it here: http://www.dresslink.com/fashion-ladies-women-perspective-fringe-patchwork-loose-casual-long-cardigan-chiffon-blouse-p-24920.html

This kimono can be worn in so many different ways. I paired it up with a distressed jeans and a simple tee that  received from dresslink as well.

Simple grey tee with lace pattern on the sleeves

You can buy it here: http://www.dresslink.com/womens-lace-hollow-out-split-joint-short-sleeve-loose-tshirt-p-10448.html

This tee is very simple yet pretty for the fact that it has these pretty lace cutouts on the sleeves and the back. I couldn’t get a good picture of the back as the lighting and the location was not that great.

IMG_1592

It fits me perfectly and I love it for the fact that I can pair it with jeans or even a skirt and it will still look good for a casual day-out.

The black pair of platforms that you see the above picture are the next thing that I received. I would say it isn’t that great of a pair to take out for a party but it definitely is a good pair if you wish to get some height yet have that comfort and the ability to walk and work at the same time. I loved these platform sandals and I’m planning to buy the white pair of the same ones soon. Though it’s a little small on me, but that’s my mistake for not choosing a size bigger than my usual.

Black platform ankle strap sandals

You can buy it here:http://www.dresslink.com/summer-women-platform-sandals-high-heel-ankle-strap-open-toe-sandals-shoes-p-23046.html

And the last thing that I received was another floral tee and I love the the pattern on it. But sadly for some reason, it doesn’t look that good on me. I paired this up with a bodycon skirt and wore the black kimono on top to just add that casual laid-back look to it.

You can buy this here: http://www.dresslink.com/2014-newest-fashion-womens-korean-short-sleeve-loose-casual-tshirt-tops-blouse-p-13169.html

So this was my first ever lookbook and I think there’s a lot of scope for improvement (self-motivation is what I like to do 🙂 ) I really liked the products that i received from Dresslink.Com and I totally understand now why the youtubers speak so highly of this website. The courier services that ship to India are Aramex, DHL and EMS and there’s no option for China Post for Free shipping.But they do have a separate section for FREE SHIPPING as well. So you can go check that out as well.

Do let me know if you liked my lookbook and any suggestions and utmost welcome as I believe constructive criticism does work wonders 🙂 If you liked any of the products that I receive or want to tell me your experience with dresslink.com , do comment down in the comment bar as I would love to hear from you all.

Happy Sunday to all :*

StreetStyleStore.Com Haul and Review

Hi Everyone,

 

It’s been a while since I posted here. I was a little busy coping up with my CAT preps and then had to come back to Bangalore from home (homesick already 😦 ). Anyway that was off topic. So today I’ll be posting my first ever haul on the blog and along with a review about this website called Streetstylestore.com that offers an amazing variety of footwear, bags and the newly added section for chic and sexy clothing as well.

I stumbled upon this website through an ad which I saw on Facebook I think a year back and noticed that they have some luring and interesting collection.There are different offers that are available on their website like 3 pairs for 999 INR, 2 pairs for 999INR etc and the designs are pretty cool and very different from those one come across on other websites or even in a store.

Though the first time I helped ordering 2 pairs of sandals for my best friend’s sisters at 999INR and he paid through card for it. The website says the shipping takes 7-21 days, but for our shock the sandals never arrived in the mentioned time. We even tried to find a number on their site to contact them and much to our surprise there was no contact number available. All we could do was just email them and no response from their end. After almost 1.5 months the footwear arrived and what I got to know from my friend was that they looked of a very cheap quality.

Well, so this time around a month back I visited their website and ordered 3 pairs for 999 INR and decided to choose cash-on-delivery instead of paying online to stay away from all the tension and headache which my friend had to go through. After around a month later when I almost forgot about my order my package arrived. The 3 pairs were stuffed in a cardboard box and the condition of the box didn’t look much appealing to me as well.

Lets get into this haul and I’ll also tell you what I feel about them as well!!!!

Here to staple:

The actual picture in the website looks like this

And this is how it looks in real. This one’s my favorite among all the 3 in the haul. It has a very bohemian look to it with all that tassels going on 🙂

And this what I received. I expected the straps to be rigid enough to stand straight, instead of it all over the place, falling haphazardly. 😦

What I received in the package. The sandals in the picture looked so awesome and unique, but it was a total bummer only because of the flimsy material of the strap and the soles looked very prone to easy wear and tear. Though love the color combo 😀

IMG_20150918_233702

IMG_20150918_171001135

I really liked the unique designs of the 3 sandals but was very disappointed by the quality as the straps looked very fragile and delicate and I doubt it would last a long time if you do not take good care of it and end up getting stuck in the rain with these sandals. I have a very mixed impression about this website and when you visit their Facebook page, you will see many complaints about package not delivered to the customers and comments getting deleted from their pages if it is kind of negative for them. But I kind of liked the footwear as you shouldn’t expect a lot when you pay 300 rs for a sandal. It has to be made with materials worth that money. Except the delivery time and their lack of customer service, the only thing that draws me to their website is their unique designs and great offers.

Pros:

  • Great and unique designs
  • Amazing deals and bargains

Cons:

  • Horrible delivery time
  • Lack of product details on the website
  • No customer care number to contact

Here are a few tips to those who wish to purchase from SSS (streetstylestore.com):

  • Always opt for cash on delivery and not pay online
  • Zoom in the pictures to find out about the material of the products as there’s no product details available
  • Have a lot of patience as the package will take almost a month to reach you most of the times

I had an okayish experience with streetstylestore.com and I will definitely want to checkout their awesome collection of bags and clothing section soon. If any of my sweet readers have ever ordered their bags or clothes do share your experience with me. Also do let me know if you found this haul interesting and if you would like to purchase any of these 3 footwear. All the links have been mentioned below the pictures to directly go to their website.

 

Have an awesome weekend my lovelies!!! 🙂

 

Let’s go all “organix” with OGX!!

Hi Everyone!!!!

 

How are you all doing? Weekend is here and most of us girls love to give ourselves spa treatments at home, and the most common is taking extra care of your hair with all that “champi” (oil massage) and stuff! 🙂

So I thought telling you guys about these beautifully smelling hair care products from a very well know brand ORGANIX or OGX. I’ve been reading a lot about OGX on the blogger’s community lately and how my fellow bloggers rave about their brazilian keratin range as well as the argan oil range. I decided to finally give these products a try and ever since I’ve been hooked onto these products. So let’s not keep anymore suspense and review them!!

 

OGX ARGAN OIL of MOROCCO- Penetrating oil:

Main Ingredients: Kernel oil, Argan oil and fragrance

Claims: The Argan oil penetrates, moisturizes, renews and creates softness and strength and also protects hair from harmful styling heat and UV damage.

 

Argan oil for all hair types

The cute packaging 🙂
My Experience: I have pretty long straight hair and it can really “knotty” after a shower. LOL!! This stuff does wonders to my hair and helps me remove all the knots really gently and super fast. Though I expected it to be an oil, but the consistency is “serum” like and is not at all sticky or oily. It is advised to use it on towel dried hair and it did wonders to my hair. All I needed was a little bit of the oil for my entire hair and then rubbed it between the palms and applied it from roots to top. I don’t yet know about the strength part, but it definitely gives a sheen to your hair along with a very mild fragrance to it.

Cost: INR 725 for 100 ml

Ratings: 4/5

Pros:

  • A little amount is enough for the hair
  • Not tested on animals
  • Paraben and sulfate free
  • A must product for dry and frizzy hair
  • True to its claims

Cons:

  • Costly for a 100 ml bottle
  • The fragrance can be a no-no for many

I bought this online at Purplle.com at a discounted price. You can get it on Flipkart and Amazon as well. I’ll leave all the links at the end of the post. 🙂

OGX BRAZILIAN KERATIN THERAPY -Shampoo:

Main Ingredients: Water, cocoa seed butter, keratin, coconut oil, avocado oil, citric acid etc.

Claims: The Brazilian coconut oil and keratin proteins smoothens and strengthens curly and wavy hair and provides straight and shiny tresses.

My Experience:

My hair is super dry and prone to breakage as I’ve got chemical smoothening done to them and I am using a lot of oil and hair masks to combat the dryness. This shampoo has done a fabulous job to my hair by moisturizing them without weighing them down. My hair looks absolute diva-like with all that shine and luster in them. The best part is you can see and feel the effect for 2-3 days without a hair wash .My washroom smells like chocolate once I come out coz that awesome this shampoo smells. To cut a long story short, I’M IN LOVE WITH IT! 😀

Cost: INR 725 for 385 ml

Pros:

  • Easy to wash off
  • Makes hair shiny and doesn’t weigh them down
  • An absolute miracle product for dry/coarse hair

Cons:

  • A little costly

Ratings: 5/5

I can’t think of anymore bad points for this baby to be honest. Now I know why this product is so raved about everywhere and why is it always out of stock online. So my final verdict would be that this an absolutely amazing product for all those who wish to add some shine to their dry and dead hair. They have a lot of range available for different types of hair and you might want to try them. The links to the website where i got the products from is mentioned below.

Hope you guys liked this review. Do let me know if you have tried the OGX shampoo and conditioner range. I’m looking forward to try their conditioner soon 🙂

HAPPY READING!! 🙂

 

Heaven in a Mug- Yummy Choco-Nutella mug cake recipe!!

Hi everyone,

If you guys follow me on Instagram, a few days back I had posted a picture of the mug cakes that I baked at home. Lately I’ve been craving for chocolate a lot and I came across a video on YouTube that gave me this idea. Though I’ve added a little bit of my twist into it but it came out to be a surprise when it tasted so delicious, better than the sponge cakes we pay for in the bakeries. The best part is you can make this in a very short amount of time.

So getting started with the ingredients first make sure you have a microwave or an oven safe mug or a cup with you. You can make use of your large ceramic coffee mugs for this purpose, a tablespoon and a teaspoon and a fork or a whisk. This recipe will serve 1-2 persons and hence the measurements are according to that.

4 tablespoons of maida/ all purpose flour

2 tablespoons of sugar (powdered)

2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder

A pinch of salt

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/8 teaspoon of baking soda

3 tablespoons of nutella

2 tablespoons of condensed milk/ milkmaid

4 tablespoons of milk

3 tablespoons of oil

METHOD:

Add all the dry ingredients first into the mug and use the fork or the whisk to mix it well. Now add the milkmaid and nutella an mix with the dry mixture. Pour in the milk and oil and thoroughly mix it to make sure there are no lumps formed. Get it to a runny yet a little thick consistency like the batter for usual cakes.

For microwave:

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3-5 minutes at 950-1000 watts (high). You will see the cake rising up in the mug and that’s the most fun part to watch 🙂 after 3 minutes you can pause and take out the mug and insert a knife and check if its been cooked well inside, if not put it back in for another 2 minutes and you’ll be done with your YUM YUM mug cake.

For oven/ OTG:

Pre-heat the oven for 10 minutes at 200 celsius and put your mug inside. It’ll take more time in an oven from 15-20 minutes depending on the batter, but the taste and feel of the cake will be the same.

If you are an egg lover, instead of condensed milk use 1 egg in the batter and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla extract and whisk it well with the mixture and bake. The egg make this cake even more spongy and tastier. Add some choco chips or chocolate syrup into it and relish this delicacy. 😀 This recipe is great for those craving days as well as for your house parties as an amazing dessert. Do try out this recipe and let me know in the comment bar if you liked it or if you have tried some other mug cake recipes, do let me know as well.

 

HAPPY COOKING!!!! 😀
