My Straight looks || Hair straightner Review

Straight Hair are back in Trend now. We spend so much , sitting for hours in the salons for hair styling, but now a days we have so many easy to handle & use tools which gives you Salon like looks right at the comfort of your home. Now a days youhave ceramic plated products to provide better safety in comparison to old Iron rods. Yes i am talking here about Hair straightner. Click here to buy

We have so many Hair straightener brushes in market now. Starting from lowest cost possible like 399rs to 3999 also. One day i bought this brush to gift my friend on birthday. After buying it and giving it to her, she gave me positive feedback and told me that she is very happy to handle her tangy twikled Curly hair using this brush.The packaging is really nice, and pretty essential. It contains the brush itself and an instruction manual.

Its very fast and simple to use. No messup.Its just like a normal brush but has heating capabilities running on the trunk of those bristles with red, protective, silicone beads.On the outer layer are ordinary plastic bristles. No heat runs through these. I guess they are strategically placed there to protect your hands from touching the heated surface.

Product Quality is good and heavy. Not like cheap material.The brush itself (up to the handle) is approximately 10.5 inches long. The cable is more than 6 feet long, just about enough to allow you to maneuver the hardware comfortably while plugged.The shell adopts a US high temperature engineering plastic material.

The handle has an LED screen panel that helps you identify the temperature of the brush.This particular model claims to heat upto adjustable 450 degree F. It has a easy on off button. It has a 60 minute Auto shut off system to save your product, if left unused.To use it, you select the temperature with the plus and minus buttons and you get a readout on the LCD. I find that, in order to minimize frizziness, it’s best to use the lowest temperature you can get away with.

My experience : I have always used it once in a fortnight and not on daily basis. Always use it on dry hair and not on my wet hair. I comb my hair well before using this, as it can get struck in my twikles. I always try to use it for 5-7 mins and then switch it off. I dont use it regularly for long. also dnt try to press it hard against your scalp. Use it nicely and gently on hair growth. Also, apply a protein conditioner or  hair serum on your hair so as to reduce the heat damage. You have to be cautious to use it for effective results and better experience. Recommended.

Liked it personally as it save a lot of time and money on outside parlour. Easy  to handle and travel friendly. Please click here to buy this miracle. Its a great gifting option too!!

Why are coffee scrubs a must try ??

Here let me increase your awareness about Coffee scrubs and why they are the latest “must-try” product of many natural skincare lovers. Since its main ingredient is caffeine or coffee powder ,which has some very interesting properties that make it an ideal ingredient for face and body scrubs like:

  • By applying to the skin in a gentle circular motion, coffee scrub exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and brightening the skin
  • Caffeine, the chemical stimulant in coffee, has antioxidant properties, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
  • Caffeine is also moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term by tightening and toning the skin, and improving blood circulation in the skin tissues.

Basic Ingredients & Benefits

  • Arabica coffee infusion & Ground Arabica Coffee: It It stimulates blood flow in the skin and also promotes circulation. The caffeine in it helps in reducing scarring, cellulite and stretch marks.Natural aromatic, Organic Arabica coffee offers a sweet molasses aroma, & exfoliates dead skin to promote healthy rejuvenation.

  • Xanthum Gum :used in oil-in-water emulsions to help stabilize the oil droplets against coalescence, and has some skin hydrating properties.

Packaging: Its a heaving grainy liquid scrub packed properly in a tub like cute box, whihc offers its a clean look and makes it handy to carry anywhere. since its a pre-prepared material, we are just left with applying it using a spatula or brush. So easy to use too 🙂

My experience & recommendation:

Now that you know why Ryaal coffee scrub ingredients are the best, and what exactly you are applying on your skin, it’s now time to try it. Buy here

Way to use: I ensure to use it while showering, as it helps me to clean the stuff easily and takes less time. I start with applying it gently in circular motion on my face especially on my nose to clean the blackheads. 1 minute gentle massage is more than enough to get a nice scrubbing effect. Since I have dry & sensitive skin, so doesn’t prefer much of scrubbing. Post that, rinse it off well and now you can notice all the dull & dead skin cells are long gone now.The honey present in the product makes sure to moisturize my skin. My skin does not feel tight or stretchy. It’s all beautiful, soft & smooth.

If still you feel the need for moisturizer, please go ahead ! It’s definitely a great way to wake up and get ready for the day!

Always do a skin test before applying any product. Have mentioned about it in all my previous blogs. Do visit them and read again. After successful skin test  only, i would highly recommend this product for evening scrubs only twice a week. It will help you remove dirt and clean pores. Apply cream and take a beautiful sleep, which will help your skin blossom in morning.People with oily skin, can try it for small patch , and see if it suits them,then only go ahead.

Our human bodies are naturally build to detox the bad and absorb the good. But now a days since pollution has increased so much, and chemicals are used in everything like food, beauty products, our bodies require extra effort to get rid of these toxins. If you r body is not detoxifying then you will see dark circles, dullness, patchy skin clearly on your face and body. Acne is one of most horrible symptom of this.

Best way around is to use face mask, almost once every week and leave your skin in shade for next 24hours. Now a days we have so many varieties  of mask available like clay mask, sheet mask, creamier formulae etc. Buy Now

Last week i bought a natural organic facemask from Neemli naturals. Its an organic product brand offering something we require most now a days and that is paraben free natural beauty products. One of their product is Activated charcoal Face Mask. Buy now

This anti-pollution, dirt magnet, pore refining and super cleansing ingredient is set to become one of the most trendy products of the beauty & skin industry!

Charcoal for the skin: Benefits?

Charcoal is one of nature’s most active and powerful ingredients. It is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. Used internally in medical science and given to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. Similarly for skin, Charcoal acts as a magnet, binding to the impurities, oil and dirt in your skin’s cells and drawing them out.

Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

  • Absorbs Toxins
  • Removes excess oil & dirt, so best for oily skin
  • Open the skin pores and remove impurities
  • Removes tanning and combat signs of ageing
  • Removes blackheads
  • Soothes and brightens the skin
  • Anti-bacterial properties
  • Helps to fight Acne and minimizes large pores

What is Activated Charcoal ?

Activated charcoal is an odorless and tasteless powder. Derived from coconut shells, peat or wood, it is processed through high temperature to increase its ability as an absorbent. When you apply it on your skin, it functions like a magnet to draw out all the sebum and toxins from your skin, making it refreshed and clean.

Neemli’s Acivated charcoal facemask is an great example of this, which delivers unrivaled benefits to the skin.

What is a Activated Charcoal Face Mask Recipe?

A charcoal face mask is ideal for those who are suffering from dry skin, dullness and oily skin. The DIY activated charcoal face mask recipe has three ingredients: click here to read more
