REVIEW: Kiehl's Stylist Series Silk Groom Serum

Unlike my skin, my hair has a mind of its own... It ignores my pleas, my efforts behind it and completely disregards the amount of money I spend on trying to tame it... Sometimes I feel like pet owner where my skin is a dog and my hair, a cat :P Strange analogy, I know... But pet owners and lovers will agree for sure ;)

This was the story of my life until I found Kiehl's Silk Groom Serum. This was the first product that I bought from Kiehl's and I must say that this totally got me hooked to the brand! I got it from the Kiehl's store in Inorbit Mall in Mumbai when Jinal, Preetha and Jyoti had met up long long time ago ;)

What The Brand Claims
"For A Glossy, Non-Frizz Finish". This unique, ultra-light and non-greasy serum tames frizzy and rebellious hair for a groomed look with a glossy shine. Infused with a blend of natural oils derived from Sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and Soy beans, our formula smoothes frizz and dry-ends and controls hair without weighing it down. Our blend enriched with Vitamin E, protects hair from humidity and boosts shine, leaving hair clean, soft and silky.
For styles ranging from smooth and straight to curly and wavy.

Directions For Use 
Apply a few drops into palm, rub together and smooth through clean, damp hair from roots to ends. Finish with a blow-drier or allow to dry naturally for a non-frizz look or for glossy, springy curls. Apply on dry hair to control split ends and fly-aways.

What I Think?
Well, it doesn't make any claims to nourish your hair and make it stronger and longer and all that jazz. It just says that it tames the frizz and gives a glossy shine to your hair. And yup! It does what it claims to do... FULL STOP... Nothing more, nothing less. No it does not make ones hair greasy and nope it doesn't weight it down... It smells so fresh and spicy-herby... I totally love it!
It comes in a convenient pump dispenser bottle and a little product really really goes a long way! I have been using it since February every single day and I have just finished half of the bottle :) Not bad right? :)

Ooohhss And Aaahhhsss!!!
1. It tames frizz and makes your hair feel silky smooth
2. Adds shine and gloss to dull hair.
3. Is not greasy and does not weigh down ones hair
4. Has a very pleasant and a unique fragrance
5. Just a little bit of product goes a really long way.
6. Has a pump dispenser and hence is great to prevent wastage of product :)

1. It is a bit on the expensive side.
2. Kiehl's products are not available easily in all cities.

It is priced a bit steeply at INR 1350/- for 75ml.

Oh definitely!

Do I Recommend?
I definitely do recommend for all types of hair. The most endearing thing is that they deliver what they claim! No false claims and no hogwashing the customers.

Overall Rating:


  1. omg!!! i soooo want these!!!! bt so expensive :(

    1. it is on the expensive side but so worth it Awungshi! Try it for sure! :)

  2. will it be any good for my fine hair? will it weigh it down? i even skip conditioners cos they weigh my hair down!

    1. hmmmm I don't think it would.. cause this seems to really suit a lot of hair types including fine hair beauties... but if you are still wary of it then I would suggest you to ask for a free sample at Kiehl's.. They genrally give samples of all their products :)

  3. Hair definitely looks so shiny and nice..sounds good..would check this out..

  4. omg .. u r luking sooo beautiful sam..

  5. nice:) bt a little expensive!!

    1. hey thanks Parul :) and yup with the monsoons hair seems to get frizzier by the minute :(

      About the MAC store I know they were suppossed to re-open last week but did it really re-open am not sure :(

  7. Did u blow dry or flat iron in the pic provided? Will it work without a blow dry or flat iron?

    1. Oh yes I always flat iron my hair and so it is super lifeless because of all the heat :( but this serum seemed to have revived it! :)

  8. khiels products r amazing bt pricey..still reading ur reviews,i thnk ts worth d price...

    1. yeah :( Kiehl's products are really good but super expensive :( but u should give this baby a shot ;)

  9. Your hair looks so shiny n health n frizz free..OMG i need to try this hair is so frizzy in spite of using serums/masks/conditioners/hair spas etc :(

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
