Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased  Makeup Remover

Pretty average! We didn’t quite find it very effective while taking off eye makeup. Not going for a second bottle for sure.

Loreal Paris UV Perfect Sunscreen
L’Oreal UV Perfect Sunscreen

We love the L’Oreal UV perfect range of sunscreens. This works so well on oily and / or sensitive skin. Also this doesn’t leave the skin looking patchy unlike some other sunscreens. Its also slightly tinted – so one can skip BB cream after applying this. It gives upto 5 hours of protection from UVA & UVB rays. It doesn’t make skin oily and does not even lead to break outs. We love!

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream
The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream

We’ve actually been using this product for some time now. As you can see it is specifically for sensitive skin. The product is a bit greasy and take a good deal of massage or time to get absorbed. The fragrance isn’t too great. However, it does provide great moisture and nourishment to the skin. We like it!

L'Oreal White Perfect Laser Brightening Treatment Water
L’Oreal White Perfect Laser Brightening Treatment Water

This is a great replacement for a serum and is somewhat on the lines of facial essence. We use it mostly just in the morning after the cleansing, toning routine but pre moisturising.  True to its name, it does brighten the skin, reduces the appearance of spots and given an even skin tone. We love!

Hair care
Organix Biotin & Collagen Thickening Shampoo
Organix Biotin & Collagen Thick & Full Shampoo

We absolutely love the Organix sulphate and silicone free range of hair care. It does make a lot of difference from heavy chemical based shampoos to these lighter ones. Monsoon makes our hair go a bit limp, so we used this thick & full formula with biotin and collagen extracts to make our hair appear fuller. Also they don’t over dry hair. But if you have greasy hair then you may need to do a wash evry day or every other day since these are extremely mild shampoos. And we like the results. Definitely going to try more shampoos from Organix!

Organix Argan Oil of Morocco
Organix Argan Oil of Morocco Light Penetrating Oil

This product smells and feels amazing. You can use the Organix Argan Oil of Morocco Light Penetrating Oil as a styling product, a heat protectant or just a serum. Its texture is light and non greasy, making it perfect for everyday use and on any hair type. It doesn’t weight hair down and can be used on either dry or damp hair. We’re definitely going to be buying a lot more of this. Also we like it better than the oil in the Moroccan Oil range.

Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intense Moisture Mask
Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intense Moisture Mask

This is our obsession of the month! Perfect for hair that tends to get a bit greasy on the scalp but is relatively try towards the ends. We replaced our conditioner with this product and had amazingly moisturised, shiny bouncy hair. You can do that or use it as often as you like as a deep conditioning treatment. Works wonders both ways. And unlike other hair masks, it doesn’t lead to hairfall. We totally recommend the Organix Hydrating Macadamial Oil Intense Moisture Mask!
