|Product Empties – July Edition|
Hello Divas! Well I went back to the post format for my empties as I had a lot of products to cover and doing a vid was not cutting it for me. The whole time constraint and editing part still gets to me 😛 Any-hoo I have a couple of hair-care, body and even weight loss aids for you this time around. So lets get down with it to see what makes it into my repurchase list and what didn’t make the cut. Hopefully the list will help you to make some purchase choices of your own next time around 🙂
|Colorbar Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover|
Colorbar Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover With Protein and Vit B5 – This has become my favorite nail polish remover beating the Lakme one mainly due to the price factor. Lakme one costs Rs. 75 for 27 ml while this one is Rs. 125/- for 110 ml of product. On top of that this one is acetone free. It removes even the stains left behind by the dark hued paints which is something that I look for in a remover. Plus I didn’t find it to be harsh for my nails in any manner. The unfortunate thing is that it is being discontinued for the time being by the brand for unknown reasons. If you want to try it then I suggest you try searching for it online as there are still a couple of sites which have this in stock for the time being (ex – NewU). This would have been on my repurchase-forever-list. I ended up buying 5 bottles of it for my stock 😛
|Kesh King Ayurvedic Hair Oil|
Kesh King Ayurvedic Hair Oil – I bought this on someone’s recommendation as it suited them a lot and they really raved about it. I used it regularly ie 2-3 times a week for 2-3 months. I have a lot of issues with my hair from hair fall to hair thinning. I was using a hair oil earlier and it really suited me a lot but I wanted to try to test out other stuff and see their effectiveness so I decided to switch oils after taking a break for sometime. I found that this oil didn’t do anything for me as I didn’t see any change in the condition of my hair for the better rather the little volume that my hair had acquired slowly lessened while I was using this. Though I will not say that this affected me adversely in any manner but since it was not effecting me at all my problems began to surface again and caused the effect of the previous oil to deteriorate. Price for 120 ml is Rs. 136/-. Not something that I can recommend.
|Sure Women Passion Deo & Nike Fission Deo for Women|
Sure Women Passion Deo & Nike Fission Deo for Women – I have become addicted to the Sure range of deo’s given their capability of keeping the sweat and BO (body odor) at bay. Couple of sprays and I am good for the entire day. Whether I’m in a sedentary mode or working my a$$ off this one has been a big help. I love the spray version more than the roll on variant. This one is definitely on my repurchase list. Price is Rs. 150/- for 150 ml. The Nike one is quite long lasting and a savior when you are working out. But it took me the longest time to finish it and frankly by the end of it I was very bored of it so I wont be repurchasing it anytime soon. Price is Rs. 249/- for 200 ml of product.
|Fruit Frappe Dry Body Oil Watermelon with Acai|
Fruit Frappe Dry Body Oil Watermelon with Acai – I had picked this up from Faces store in Mumbai but this is a product of Upper Canada Soap Company. You can check out my detailed review for it here. Though I really like it and would consider repurchasing it I recently stumbled on some body oils especially from Forest Essentials that I want to try out. So I will give those a go first before deciding whether I want to stick to this or change over.
|Avon Anew Vitale Day Cream|
Avon Anew Vitale Day Cream – Again a product that I really liked and was very sad that it got over. I did consider repurchasing it because I went through a horrible dry skin bout last winter but right before I was ready to throw in the towel and purchase this I was sent the Michael Todd Ageless Cream…the rest is history 🙂 But yes this is on my might-repurchase-list. You can read my detailed review for it here to know why I like it so much.
|J.Lo Blue Glow Perfume|
J.Lo Blue Glow Perfume – When I finish a makeup product or a perfume I have my hallelujah moment right there 😀 I have mentioned before that Glow by J.Lo is one of my all time favorite perfumes and whenever she came up with a new variant I had to try it out. This one is pretty good but it does not match my love for the original. I did a whole series on my perfume collection and you can read about this one here. I’m thinking of continuing that series as I have managed to add more pieces to my collection 😛 Usually perfumes are not something that I repurchase however there have been rare exceptions to that rule but somehow they fail to capture me as much as they did during the first time around. I guess I’m a “first love” kinda gal with a strong outta-sight-outta-mind-and-kept-out syndrome (rofl). Oh well…
|Forest Essentials Bhringraj Hair Vitalizer|
Forest Essentials Bhringraj Hair Vitalizer – I have finished 4 bottles of this and am on my 5th bottle right now. I was prescribed this when I went in for my consultation at Forest Essentials and was told to use this for 4 months continuously. Since it is an ayurvedic product it is supposed to take sometime in showing results. I finished 4 bottles in about 2 – 2.5 months approx. Though it is still early to talk about the results of it but I want to see this through and use it for the stipulated time period before I present my findings to you. Since it is water based and comes in a pump bottle the application process is a breeze and for a lazy bum like me a complete boon. It has helped me stick to it and not give up half way. It has become a somewhat expensive trail for me as 100 ml costs Rs. 750/- but I’m still willing to see it through. Hopefully I have some positive results to report to you guys by the end of it.
|Morpheme Remedies Forskolin|
Morpheme Remedies Forskolin & Revolution Ab Cuts CLA Belly Fat Formula – Ok coming to the “controversial” part of the post. Let me sound ignorant and a complete bimbo here but I have been always been on the lookout for the magic pill aka quick fix solution to losing weight. I have tried a bunch of pills and potions available in the market. While some had been effective and were consequently banned others have not done anything except make my wallet feel a lot lighter. I want to have my cake and eat it too. Recently there have been a lot of ads talking about the next biggest miracle discovery in weight loss and it is a herb called Forskolin. After doing some research on it I found that it was a native to India. Most of the pills available online were costing me 3k plus for a bottle of 60 tabs which effectively is supposed to last a month. I came across a brand called Morpheme Remedies where a bottle of 60 caps was costing me about 700 – 800 bucks. I didn’t mind doing a trial run for that kind of amount.
Well all weight loss pills do mention that you have to be following a diet and doing workout while you are on the pills to see any change. Pardon me but if I’m already on a diet and exercise routine then I will loose weight naturally and there is no need for a pill 😛 Well I did not bring any change to my lifestyle pattern while I was trying these out…for me the point is that they should work irrespective of it. The forskolin ones didn’t do anything for me. People were claiming that they lost about 1-5 kgs in a week and anywhere from 5-10 kgs in a month! There was no change in my weight at all that was any different than usual aka weight usually fluctuates on a day to day basis given your consumption. So there was nothing out of the ordinary happening. You could try using these as supplementary aids but if you are looking for a solution like me then this didn’t do anything for me to even consider trying them out further.
|Revolution Ab Cuts CLA Belly Fat Formula|
The Ab Cuts were sent to me by my sister from US. CLA has been researched into a lot and has been found to be very effective in combating the stubborn belly fat. These pills contained Omega 3, flax see and Vitamin E oils and act a really good health supplement. Well I didn’t see any change in the inches but I will say that my belly felt firmer while I was using these and my system was cleaning out properly. These I would like to continue with further. Again they are meant to be used with a proper diet and exercise routine but they did show some amount of change even with my unhealthy lifestyle patterns. You can buy 120 pills bottle for 16.58$ at Amazon.
