Kunkumadi Tailam - Arya Vaidya Sala - Kottakkal

Hey everybody! This time, I have brought Arya Vaidya Sala's KunKumadi Oil for review. Before I start the review, let me tell you something about KUMKUMADI OIL in general, for those who don't know. KumKumadi oil is one of the most popular oils in our Ayurveda, especially for skin treatments. Made from16 herbal ingredients, this oil has saffron as its main ingredient. The oil is considered one of the most reliable and effective ways to improve complexion (antioxidants present in saffron); lighten dark circles; reduce whiteheads, acne & blackheads (anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric) and keep skin wrinkle free and young. Thus, this miraculous Kumkumadi oil is beneficial in making skin young, glowing, radiant and flawless. There are many companies which prepare and or sell this oil. You might have heard of Kama Ayurveda's Miraculous Kumkumadi oil. But because Kama Ayurveda's oil is super expensive (somewhere around 1800 INR), I decide


Hey everyone! Today I am going to review Loreal's under eye whitening cream. So read on! What the company claims:                                                      Ingredients:                                                        MRP: 599 INR Net content: 15 ml Shelf life: 3 years My experience with Loreal's eye cream: As my work involves sitting in front of computer for long hours, I have got, as a result, dark circles (though not very dark, but dark enough to bother me). I am not much of a make up person so using concealer everyday is out of option. I wanted a more permanent solution and hence started my search for an under eye cream. I have previously used Badam Rogan which is an oil, rich in vitamin E and it worked well to reduce the dark circles, but this time, I wanted to check out a cream. Loreal's this eye cream can be used in both morning and night. So I apply it everyday in both times as mentioned. A very little product is required. The con

JAFRA SPA MUD MASK - the unsung hero in India
