Review: Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement Hair Cream

When winters started, I knew I was going to use a lot of heat on my hair. That is when I saw the advert on TV about Pantene Pro-V oil replacement cream. I finally tried it out over a few weeks and decided to share my review with you all.

The cream comes in a very easy to use soft tube. The tube is golden and looks quite nice. It has a flip top for ease of use.

Price: Rs 150  [180 mL] available online

The cream is white in color and smells like most Pantene products. It's kind of difficult to explain, somewhere with fruity/floral notes and the fragrance does linger on for some time. I personally like the fragrance but some people with a highly sensitive nose may not be able to handle it.

Bye Bye Dandruff, Hello Smooth Hair!

Hi friends! Winters and dandruff have always had a simultaneous occurrence in my life. I tend to get dandruff very easily hence I do opt for a weekly headwash with Head & Shoulders to cleanse my scalp of all buildup that actually caused dandruff.

For the past few weeks I've been regularly using the new Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 Smooth & Silky and liked it enough to share a quick review with you all.

Price: Rs 310 (360 mL) - buy online for Rs 263

The packaging is just the same as the standard Smooth & Silky shampoo. A flip top makes dispensing the right amount of product easy while in the shower.

NYX Advanced Salon Formula Nail Polish - Review and Swatches

Hi everyone! Today's post is a quick swatch post about a gorgeous polish that was lying in my stash. Every month I participate in a birthday collab where the group creates some mani for the birthday girl. This month I was supposed to recreate the mani of one of the birthday girls and I was looking for a pink polish that was bright yet a soft pink. I have a few popping pink colors but couldn't remember having this beautiful pink polish from NYX that I got a couple of years ago.

The polish doesn't have a name and is numbered as NPS 227. The pink shade is like the traditional rose pink color with hints of magenta shimmer. It sort of gives it a slight holo effect.

Esqido False Eyelashes and Glue - Review

I love wearing makeup but always something that is understated. That is one reason I never tried false lashes but I absolutely adore how makeup artists create spectacular eye makeup looks complete with false lashes.

When Esqido contacted me to know if I'd like to try out their false lashes, I thought to myself, well maybe I won't wear them all the time but I can definitely try them out for special occasions. So here is my review of two different false eyelashes from Esqido - EL 213 Night Bouquet, and EL 205 Lash Named Desire. I will also be sharing my views on the false eyelash glue from Esqido.

Esqido False Eyelashes

Every pair of Esqido eyelashes is handcrafted. They are made of 100% mink hair and are absolutely gentle to touch. They come boxed in a gorgeous white and rose gold packaging. The eyelash box itself melted my heart with its good looks.

The eyelashes feel very natural to touch. Once you apply them correctly they look natural and can turn your eyes into the most sexiest ever. Esqido lashes come in different designs going from the very subtle ones to the ultra glam lashes.

Esqido Lash Named Desire

Lash Named Desire is more of the sultry kind. These add medium volume to the lashes. These pair of false lashes have a winged out look and are criss-crossed. This adds that glamorous touch to your eyes making them look seductive. These were slightly longer for my eye shape so I had to trim them before application.
