Gillette Venus Myth Busted Vol. 2

It’s been almost 3 weeks since I have started using Gillette Venus Razor. So far, so good. Why you ask? Well, because of the crazy deadlines and almost no time to invest in a salon day, this razor has become my saviour for hairless skin. Now with the festive season all lined up for the rest of month, it is becoming more and more difficult to take out some pampering time. And with the last league of summer slowly diminishing into a Fall fever, this is my last chance to wear sleeveless silhouettes before the time to ‘cover it all’ dives in. Coming back to my experience with razor, especially Gillette Venus Razor in particular, the method has not only become very convenient for me to work with (thanks to its sensitive skin friendly make) but the usage has helped me burst many myths that usually surround this particular hygiene product. Myth : Razor Changes Skin and Hair Colour. Busted: This bizarre myth about the usage of razor and discolouration/change in colour of skin and hair has no scientific base at all. Razor, in anyway, does not effect the wellness of the skin and nor does it tweak the colour of the unwanted hair in any way. Their might be some chemical reactions if someone uses the local hair removal creams, but the same cannot be associated with Gillette Venus Razor, or any kind of razor for that matter. Experience I have now adapted The Gillette Satin Care shaving gel to my hair removal procedure. It is always advisable to use the steps of products of the same range of a brand, rather than mix-matching products depending on the likeability. Reason being that each product is chemically complimentary towards the other product, which results in achieving the best the range can …

#SubscribeToSmooth Gillette Venus Challenge

Gillette Venus aug 15

Do you opt for waxing as your hair removal technique, or slide on a razor to get the job done in a quickie? Well, this method of removal of unwanted hair has been up as a debate for a long long time. While some vouch by the smooth and long-term experience of waxing, others swear by the easy & pain-less razor method for hair removal. I myself have been questioning the credibility of razor as hair removal for a long long time. It’s not only a pain-less way of removing hair, but is also cheaper and quicker method of doing it. Remember those constant trips to your local salon for a painful half-hour of waxing agony? Sure, the method provides a long-term freedom from unwanted hair and often removes dead skin; but boy the pain and time it consumes is just too much to take! And in today’s fast pace of life, you can’t really pack up a mobile waxing kit and try stripping the waxed patches while you’re on the go. What if you have a surprise date post work and you’re suppose to wear a midi dress, but have prickly hair growth on your legs? Of course the trip to the parlour is just not feasible. Which is when the mighty razor comes in handy. Even with the goodness of a razor’s feasibility comes in many claims that might make you think twice before shaving. Razored hair becomes thicker, razor harms the skin, etc. – their are plenty of notions around razor that are actually not true in the light, but yet get pointed out at, every time the word ‘razor for women’ gets called out! The team of Gillette Venus invited media and bloggers to have an open interaction about the same. Their expert panel of Aesthetic Physician Dr. …

Oriflame Love Nature Face Wash Neem

August 25, 2015

I’ve been going on and on about being organic and adapting a beauty regime that is ‘Au Naturel’. Keeping up with the nature’s trend, we have many brands trying to maintain a chemical free approach towards their products. However, with most of the products that I use, be it organic, their are a very few that actually show convincing results. Oriflame is one Indian beauty brand that I associate as being *exclusive*. Given its nature of being members-only product line, I have grown up seeing my mother and other ladies of the house actually flipping through catalogues and reviewing the products in the comfort of our homes before buying the product. And this concept of comfort beauty shopping has grown into a full blown business, with series of product ranges getting introduced every now and then. To gift us something for the sticky monsoon season, Oriflame recently introduced a range of face-care products. The range called ‘Love Nature’ comes with the goodness of Neem, which is strongly related to beauty care; over centuries. Eager to find a remedy for my oily T-zone, I have been adapting random face packs, light moisturising creams and what not. Unfortunately, either the packs have left my skin all dry or haven’t worked for me at all. Oriflame’s Love Nature Face Wash comes with the goodness of Neem. Honestly, I am really very happy with the product! About Oriflame Love Nature Face Wash Oriflame India brings you vast range for products from its ever so fresh and rejuvenating “Love Nature Range”, an array which caters to your skin’s need all day long. Priced at Rs. 199, the product is a gentle face was with antibacterial properties of Neem which helps prevent blemishes and balances T-zone. Removing the impurities and excess oil form the skin, the …
