My father:My Hero

Hi beautiful people,

In my blog we discuss mostly about beauty products, events happening in and around capital city. But this time when father’s day is around the corner,I want to express my true feelings for my Dad who is one of the most important people in my life.

I have grown up in a joint family where fathers are usually portrayed as the most ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•serious ,disciplined,scary,head of a family but let me tell you I have a different story. Dad showed us two different aspects of his life….. Serious one infront of everyone but a happy, full of life, happening in front of us (his family).

My Dad :My Guide

No doubt I share a unique bond with my mom but chemistry between me and my Dad is exceptional. He instilled his generosity, relentless positive attitude in me.He always remind me “Every setting sun is a promise that it will rise again.” Everyday brings some challenges,it’s better to fight with them rather than skipping and running from them. I could recall many incidents where he emerged as a hero and gave me life lessons.

I use to be very shy and introvert so it was a task for me to share my problems with anybody. When I was in 4th standard a day before my maths exams,I got stuck in few difficult sums.As only 24 hrs were left for exam…. I started loosing my confidence. While passing through my room, Dad listened me sobbing. He relaxed me and like a good teacher helped me understand those difficult ones. That day I got to know that he’s the one with whom I can share my darkest secrets without fear of being judged.

He gave me liberty to live my dreams and always had faith in my decisions.

He lived very different childhood where he had to fight for his education, career.But always tried his best to give me all luxuries which I demanded. He literally spoiled me for choices. Thats the reason why I actually haven’t waited for my prince charming.

My Dad :My Friend

Its great to see that unlike other men of his age, he accepted changes happening in his life with arms wide open. When I told him about my wish to marry love of my life. He smiled and asked me about his job and future plans. After being satisfied he happily said yess. That day we turned into good friends.

My Dad : Best Advisor

One more best thing about my Dad is his unbiased nature and best advices for all my problems. Once I misbehaved with my classmate and he got to know about it. He made me realized because he believe that encouraging such acts are not good for me.Next day, I said sorry to the girl. I myself felt good after apologizing.

My Dad:Celebrates My little success

Fathers are such beautiful people who celebrate every little achievement of his child and see it as his own success. Dad took us all for a surprise dinner when I secured 1st position in my class.I saw his eyes shining bright with pride. His is and forever will be my biggest fan.

Actually I have uncountable stories of me n Dad…. One post is not enough to express how much I owe to him.

In short

He’s greatest ever told kind n loving dad who has heart of gold. Who believed in me when no one else did.You gave me wings and taught me how to fly.Thank you Dad for making me realise on my own potential. I know that there is one heart full of love…….Dad you are my super hero and forever will be…..

This post is a part of father’s Day themed blog train hosted by Preeti Tiwari of delhi blogger and Priyanka Patwari of flavors of world where 24 bloggers are expressing their feeling for their daddy dearest.

I want to introduce Shilpa Bindlish of Alive and kicking for next post of this awesome activity. Thank you Quiline for involving and introducing me in this blog train.

Thanks for reading…

Discover Your True Beauty with Debon Herbals

Hi beautiful people,

If you are following me,you must have noticed that I am inclined towards natural and herbal brands. Because after using various skincare brands, I have got a reality check and realized power of herbs.

I am using Debon herbals from past one month.I got my hands on a wide variety of products from this brand. I am actually amazed with the results of these products.

I am going to list down my favorite products from Debon herbals.

1)Moisture Intense Hydration –

This one is a must have moisturiser for dry skin. Its ideal to use in any season because it gives nourishment without making your skin greasy. I love its mild fragrance. Its having best ingredients like aloe vera, vit E oil, geranium, jojaba ,groundnut oil which are well known for their moisturizing properties.

2)Hair Food-

Like body our hair and skin need food too. Only cleaning with shampoo isn’t enough. So this hairfood infused with amla, methi, bramhi, bringraj, henna, jatamansi, ambahaldi, shikakai, aritha comes in rescue. I apply it once a week by mixing it with curd.It has cured my premature greying of hair.

3)Facepacks-(multi purpose, ๐ŸŠ orange)

Summers are already in India and to get get rid of acne and pimples I use these alternately every week.

4)Hair Oil-

This one is different in color and smell if I compare with my usual oil. It has intense dark color and strong herbal smell but it has enhanced my hair growth and stopped hair fall. I use it twice a week.

5)Blemish &Pigmentation Free Facial kit-

This one I used on my mom who has intense dark spots on face. It’s a 5 step facial kit which ensures parlor like glowing skin at home. Just two facials by this has done magic on Mummy’s skin. It has a bleach cream free which I use on myself too.

6)Bleach Cream-

This cream is my rescue when I need to look instantly party ready. I felt no irritation on my super sensitive skin after applying this. It lightens facial hair and is moisturising too.

7)Vitamin E Cream-

Vitamin E has wrinkle reducing property so this cream which has delightful smell is my new found love. I use it day time and night time to moisturise my hands,feet and body as well.

8)Body Scrub Cream-

Its a multitasking scrub which gently exfoliates skin and increases blood circulation. Its ideal for body and face but I avoid it using it on my extremely dry cheeks.

9)Anti Blemish Cream-

I use it as a night cream for my face which gives me supple, glowy skin in morning. I share it with my mom, she loves its ingredients which are aloevera,almond oil, neem oil,methi, tulsi.

10)Aloe vera Shampoo-

Aloe vera is best known for hair growth, anti dandruff, stopping split ends and brittleness of hair. It works gently on my chemically treated hair.

11)Hair Conditioner-

Its best if you always skip conditioning because it makes your hair look heavy.Its a light conditioner which gives a shine to my hair and controls frizz too.

Packaging-

I found packaging of these products really simple which needs to improve.

Nutrilite Traditional Herb :Best of Nature,Science and traditional wisdom

Hi my beautiful readers,

Herbs are nature’s best gifts which are used in various treatments since ages. Consumption of these ancient, miraculous herbs ensures the right balance between our body and mind.

But in today’s fast paced life nobody has time to search and consume these herbs on daily basis.

Pollution has also increased so much that heavy metals settle in plants leaves which makes them not safe to consume directly.Eating 100s of tulsi leaves or amla fruit per day is also not possible for a normal person.

In such critical situation Amway’s new nutrilite traditional herb range comes in rescue.

Recently I got chance to attend blogger’s meet of Amway which was regarding the launch of their new traditional herb range.

๐ŸŒฟTulsi

๐ŸŒฟAshwagandha

๐ŸŒฟBramhi

๐ŸŒฟAmalaki, Vibhitaki &Haritaki

There was also a small celebration for 20 glorious years of Amway.

There I got to know how Amway is putting best efforts to make these herbs.I want you to know how Amway is using new technology which makes it stand out of the crowd.

1)DNA Finger Printing-

DNA fingerprinting is a novel approach that involve identification of a species why reading the genetic makeup at a molecular level by generating barcode like patterns.

It helps ensure that every herb is in its purest form and free from any kind of contamination.

2)Certified Organic Herbs-

Amway uses herbs from Ferms which has organic certification in India. Nutrilite ensures growing, harvesting and processing plants on certified organic farms where no pesticides are used.

3)Non GMO RANGE-

Nutrilite traditional Herbs range of products is made from non gmo( genetically modified organisms) sources. Because genetically engineered food may lead to threat or various health issues.

4)Active Ingredients-

These Herbs contain active ingredients which provide various health benefits in just one or two tablets a day.

5) Nutraceutical Guidelines Compliant-

These herbs meet all product guidelines defined by FSSAI

Amway follows a three-step principal for the best quality of herbs which are purity,safety and potency.

Health Benefits of Nutrilite Traditional Herb Range-

Amalaki, Vibhitaki, Haritaki-

It supports digestion, has laxative properties,improves appetite, supports colon health, soothes hyper acidity and detoxifies the body system.

Dosage-1-2 tablets a day

Ashwagandha-

It supports vitality, eases distress, calms the Nervous System, boosts body’s functioning,revitalizes the body.

Dosage-1-2tablets a day

Bramhi-

It supports mental agility, improves the functioning of central nervous system, improves attention, improves alertness and concentration.

Dosage-1-2 tablets a day.

Tulsi-

It supports immunity it has antioxidant effect.

Dosage-1-2 tablets a day.

Most of us have bad immune system due to unhealthy lifestyle, eating habits and increased pollution.By consuming these traditional herb range by Amway,we can easily achieve great balance in mind and body.I am consuming 1 tablet each of tulsi and ashwaganda per day.

So why not you give these traditional herbs a try and feel the difference in your immune system….

Thats all for this post…. Thankss for reading….bye till my next blog post.

Stay natural… Stay healthy.

HIMALYA YOUTH ETERNITY RANGE:Review

Hi everyone ,I am back with one more review and this time its a skincare range from a well known brand i. e. HIMALAYA PERSONAL CARE. Few months back they launched Youth Eternity range…. I got chance to attend the event with many co bloggers. We interacted and discussed about various skin issues.

We all had one common concern that was premature ageing and I am really happy to see that Himalaya has focussed mainly on this issue.This range has three products a day cream, a night cream and a under eye cream.

What the range claims-

This range works on fine lines and wrinkles, accentuates skin hydration and elasticity levels, prevents photoageing,mantains even skintone,visible pore reduction.

Concept behind Youth Eternity:

Its a breakthrough anti aging formulation based on plant stem cell research and exotic herbal actives.

Plants cannot escape danger. They therefore create special mechanisms to withstand environmental stress: plants survive substantial damage by initiating continuous formation of new structures such as leaves and flowers. Stem cells of plants are characterized by the ability to create differentiated cell types and the ability to self-renew.Edelweiss plant stem cells are used in this set of skincare.

Day Cream-

This one is a lightweight,spf 15 cream with mild fragrance. It doesn’t leave any oil or greasyness on the face. It is suggested to apply twice a day.

Night Cream-

Again a non-oily,quick absorbing cream which has soothing mild fragrance.

Under Eye Cream-

This cream has more liquid consistency than the rest two in this range, it has no fragrance and its so light that you can wear it under your makeup to protect and prevent delicate under eye area from harsh cosmetics.

Packaging-

Day and night cream comes in travel friendly pump bottles and eye cream is in tube pack.

Ingredients –

Cost:

Day cream and night cream-499/- for 50ml each

Under eye cream-525/-for 15ml tube

My Take-

I would call it a perfect skincare regime for those who are beginner(in ur late 20s) and are searching for affordable skincare range. It can be solution for people with extremely oily skin as this range is non oily.

The day/night cream not worked for my extremely dry cheeks but worked well for my oily t-zone.

Under eye cream is a star for me… it worked wonders for my under eye area. I can feel the difference after using it regularly for 1 month.

(Apply any of these products on a clean dry skin)

Pros-

๐Ÿ‘‰targets many skin issues

๐Ÿ‘‰affordable

๐Ÿ‘‰plant based technology

๐Ÿ‘‰light weight

๐Ÿ‘‰good for those in 20s

๐Ÿ‘‰non allergic

Cons-

๐Ÿ‘‰not suitable if you have dry skin

๐Ÿ‘‰not good for winter when ur skin needs extra hydration

๐Ÿ‘‰not very effective for those who are above 30

Verdict -I will give this range one more try in summers when my skin is not soo dry. I am impressed with eye cream which is a must try.

Thats all folks….thanks for reading… I will be back soon with one more review…….. till then bye

How it works?

One has to empty the fragrance oil of bottle in the ceramic pot.Once reeds are immersed in this pot,they absorb the fragrance oil.Soon reeds start spreading the fragrance.

Notes of This Fragrance Oil:

As soon as you will open the bottle you feel the fresh,romantic,floral smell.

Packaging:

It comes in cardboard box which contains a plastic bottle which has fragrance oil(60ml) and a ceramic pot with few reeds(8) which are kept well in the box.Packaging is very beautiful, making it a great gifting option in coming wedding functions.
