Maybelline Color Show 302 Fantasea Green : Review, NOTD

Here we are with another Color Show shade to share with you all! Regular readers are well acquainted with our love and obsession with the Color Show range, and newcomers are welcome to go through our previous reviews :)

I always wanted a gray-green to add to my collection. The colour seemed quite unique as far as nail polishes go, and I used to see lovely swatches of such shades online! Imagine my happiness when Maybelline released such shades, and at the best prices too!

Nivea Soft Rose Lip Balm : Review

It's the season of lip balms, isn't it? This dry winter air just sucks the life right out of your pucker! Being a dry skinned girl myself, I bring out every kind of arsenal to combat flakiness and dryness in the cold months. Lips are one part that I cannot allow to be chapped and dull, and Nivea has been a constant help in preventing my nightmare from coming true.

We, at C & D, are ardent fans of Nivea lip balms! It's true! See we've got the following covered, and still have a couple more to review :D

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream : Review

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing one of my most loved and "cannot-do-without-it" product, the famous Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. Oh Burt's Bees...where had you been all my life?! For years I have had problems with my cuticles and hangnails too. And this little tin has been my saviour, especially with the chilly weather and all the frequent hand washing now.

Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish, Tomato Tango : Review

I normally stay far far away from tomatoes! The only way I like them is in soup or ketchup or sauces. But this baby here, Tomato Tango is an absolute delight :)

Lotus Herbals Intensive Sunblock Spray, SPF 50 : Review

You hopped onto C & D expecting a new beauty review, and here I am dishing out a sunscreen review smack in the middle of winter. Why, you ask yourself. It could have been a post on the True Match foundation, instead! You hardly get to see the sun most days, and when you do it's behind a screen of heavy fog, so you really don't need to slather on SPF right?


Basic rule #1 : Never, ever, skip your SPF. Not if you have any attachment to your skin!

But basically, this product just didn't work for me in summers, and I was waiting for the perfect moment to share it with you all :P

Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment : Review

All thorough out my school life, we had this Saturday ritual at home...Mom used to oil our hair and give us a mini head massage! Back in school people used to wonder what kept my hair so healthy and no one believed that this could have been the only reason :D 

Now I have been in a hostel, staying away from home for about 6 years now and boy! I miss the Saturday hair oiling sessions!! Ever since college started, I have been skipping the oil a lot (laziness, tiredness or work to get done comes in the way mostly) and I have seen my hair take a drastic downward toll. Plus heat application every now and then doesn't exactly improve the situation. 

When I was sent the Kama Ayurveda Brindadi Intensive Hair Treatment to review, I was very excited as this made some great claims.  I have been using this for over a month now (once a week) I am finally ready to share my views. Read on!

Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Face Scrub: Review

I always loved products by Kama Ayurveda...but that love is increasing more and more with each passing day. The Mridul cleanser is something I cannot do without, as you may have read earlier. Nalpamaradi Thailam is something I have been liking lately too. And to increase my love is the Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Scrub

Maybelline Baby Lips have become so famous now that I am sure that 95% of girls would be having them and loving them too. 
I have been a big fan of Baby Lips as well, having gone through several of them already. And I cannot believe that I never put it up here. I might be the last person reviewing these :D 
So here is the first one of the many...Rose Addict.

Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Thailam : Review

So, for a past few months now, I have ditched creams and have become a fan of oils. Yes, you read right! You may wonder but HOW?! Oils on an already oily skin?
Let me assure you that I haven't lost it... yet :P ;) Most of the oils I have been using are dry oils and I have been letting them work their magic.

Now, Kama Ayurveda sent some goodies and the timing couldn't have been better! My skin was turning quite dry from the chilly weather and I was on the look out for something more moisturising than the dry oils. Enter Nalpamaradi Tailam! I have been using this for a month now and it is time I tell you about it. Read on :)
