REVIEW: The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil

Review of The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil

The pati and I have this ritual, where once a week we both take turns and give the other a rigorous champi... The day varies, the oil varies but the USP is the same... Pamper the other to in turn receive a little pampering yourself... The hair oil that we have been using in the past ranged from the Parachute Coconut Hair Oil to Dove Elixir to even Bajaj Almond Drops... The scene however changed when we tried out The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil for the first time and haven't looked back since...

No really! It's got both the pati and me hooked and I don't think we ever want to change the medium of our ritualistic champi. Of course the reason why we both prefer this oil over others varies quite vastly but in the end the result is the same... It goes into my repurchase basket list :)

The main reason why I love this nourishing hair oil is because of its fragrance and that is one point where the pati and I whole heartedly agree with each other... It has this sweet caramelized coconut-ey smell that takes me back to my childhood when my mum used to make these coconut laddoos that us bengalis call Nadu.
It smells heavenly and has this mild sweet smell that makes oiling your hair with a coconut oil a heavenly experience.

The other very important reason why I love this special oil is because it is perfect for my oily scalp but dry hair... I generally keep it for about 3 hours and after I have shampooed my hair, it feels like silk... Smooth, soft and so silky...

It washes off really easily and doesn't leave traces of oil in your hair even after only one shampoo wash. It is extremely light, doesn't feel oily much (why pati loves it) and hence doesn't leave weird oily patches on your pillow case in case you plan to leave your hair oiled overnight!

The only feature that I think they could improve on is the packaging. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle and I don't have an issue with that. The bottle contains a flip cap, which is good too, however the flip doesn't seem very robust and hence I wouldn't recommend traveling with the bottle unless you have absolutely no fear of soiling the insides as well as the contents of your bag with oil...

Price of The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil

It costs INR 645/-

Oooohhhss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Love love love the fragrance.
2. Smoothens my hair and makes it look all healthy.
3. It does not contain silicones and colorants.
4. Easily available at all Body Shop counters.

1. The packaging is not very travel friendly.

I definitely would. I make no claims that it reduces hairfall or reduces greying. I am going to be repurchasing only for the reason that it makes my hair all smooth and silky and makes it look really healthy.

Like I said above, if you are looking for an oil that makes your hair manageable and improves it's health then you must give this oil a shot.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
