Get your Beauty Personalised with Aplava.com

Hi Beauties,

Today's blog post is about discovering yourself. According to a survey, most women are unknown of their skin types, its problems, its tone, etc and in all of these things, they end up using products not suitable for them which leads to breakouts, itching, etc. At the same time, market is flooded with  a constant parade of promises and conflicting claims , it becomes almost impossible to lay our hands to the correct stuff.
             While searching the web for a certain product, I came to a new website Aplava.com. It is about "AAp luv".
"It is a start up beauty company providing every customer of their, an experience of Divine Beauty. For busy women/men on the go, it is a personalized beauty service tailored to your taste, budget & lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day."

Brief Introduction of the ideology of the brand -
                 Aplava (pronounced  as “Aap luv”) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. They believe that Beauty is you!!!!

I always love my life as a beauty blogger because it helps me to explore new products, places, brands,etc. But since buying online is not everyone cup of tea, it is difficult to match the exact tone,colour, texture of beauty products while buying them online especially. So here comes as a saviour their Personalised Beauty Section as it gives you a virtual tour of your Skin along with the help of professional beauty experts & dermatologists by building your BEAUTY PROFILE.


         Created my own Beauty Profile to help my skin get perfectly curated skin care products for it and got some recommendations for the same.

The Website has a wonderful range to offer including many international, national, drugstore, organic brands ranging from Dermalogica , Avene , Braun, Lakme, Garnier, Skintruth , Wild Earth, etc.

            I was wondering for Skintruth Equalising skincare regimen for my sister to gift her on her birthday but was unable to find it on major leading websites but I was able to locate it on this website. Ahh!!! finally got it after spending so much time.You can also check skintruth products online on the website.

           The website has a wonderful layout, is easy to use, you don’t have to look for product details as you get perfect details about the product, ingredients, How to use , About the Brand, Shipping & Returns, all information at one place only. It offers free delivery over Rs. 999/- and the best part is that the company provides time to time startling promotional offers which tends to fit more products in our budget . It also provide the option of Following the Price i.e. Keep track of the price drops on this item as and when the price of the particular product will drop, an email would pop up which in turn will help to save some more bucks.
          With all these extremely good features , I am so excited to shop with Aplava.com. Now on my wishlist, the first product is  Lakme perfect radiance Intense Whitening Serum which I am getting almost at a discount of almost 25% (including cashback also), Skintruth Skincare Regimen with discount of almost 35% - 40% and a lot more...I will update all you wonderful people when I will receive it in a haul post.
           
Brief Review by our Co-Contributor -:  Our Co - Contributor Namrata Agarwal (Soon Mom to be) also shopped some Sebamed Baby Products from Aplava for her soon to be arriving baby and here is her brief and relevant review of it. The online ordering procedure is simple like that of any online portal, but what I loved more about the website is prompt delivery within 3-4 days(meanwhile my order was delivered on the date of Constituency Elections in our city),nice & intact packaging, every item individually well packed so as to avoid spillage. I ordered some Sebamed Baby products which were 100% authentic and imported from Germany.The date of Mfgr. was of  2016, which is again a big plus for user as they provide you goods with longer shelf life. Sharing some of the pics of her order...



SF Rating -:  9/10
 
Final Verdict-: I am yet to share my personal experience of the products to be received but yes I am totally amazed with the website design, its ease to use, and most importantly its emphasis on buying the products apt for you in your budget. I don't find any cons of the website except COD charges which keeps me bothering & sometimes it take quite a time to load. Will keep you guyz updated of my haul from Aplava.com.

Experience with Italian Rica Waxing

At the recent visit of mine to Toni & Guy Salon at my place,the beautician suggested me to try Rica Wax instead of Normal Wax as there was high humidity and it was impossible in such a condition to get my hands perfectly waxed with Normal Wax. So i agreed with her to give Rica Wax a try after holding my breath because it was totally new to me & i can't expect what it would be.




WHAT RICA WAX IS -:
Rica is an advanced Depilation System made of mixture of “98% natural, vegetable and plant-based wax” which is 100% free of colophony (a harsh sticky substance, which is the cause of irritation or skin becoming red, inflamed and itchy or allergic reaction after waxing). These are also called as "Liposoluble Waxes"


MY EXPERIENCE WITH ITALIAN RICA WAX -:
          Initially, the beautician applied Rica’s cotton milk pre-wax gel to clean or wipe out the dirt, sweat or oil from the waxing area. I exactly haven't seen which variant of the wax she used as she has put the wax for heating on the Wax heater. 
           I made sure to her that she has to be quite gentle, because i feel a lot of pain while waxing.But what elated me more that to my surprise, it was less painful than my regular waxing atleast for me. I found Rica’s  “superior hair gripping strength” claim to be quite true because she doesn't need to apply wax over the same area more than once. My hands & legs waxing was completed in about less than half an hour. Post waxing, the beautician  applied Rica Aloe Vera After Wax Lotion & hot steamed towel to clean the wax residues from the skin.But being my skin super sensitive to wax, there was redness & some scars, so in order to calm & moisturise my skin she applied Lacto Calamine Lotion.

 
    
     My sudden interaction with RICA products was quite satisfactory & i loved the total experience. The products are amazing & yes they stick true to their claims. A contented customer is the answer to all questions & claims.
On coming home , i searched about the products & read some rave reviews about the products.Their Waxes are available in India in many online portals like Nykaa.com ; Purplle.com ; Jabong.com, etc.
       So give them a try & experience a new revolution other than normal wax. 

Another great tip while trying Rica Wax at home, it is lot more messier than normal wax, so do buy after wax lotion or use any oil like coconut oil, olive oil, baby oil, etc.( Just simply dab a cotton ball in the oil and apply over the place of wax for good 1 min & then massage through it) to remove wax residues from the skin.

Have you tried Rica Wax... Would love to know your experiences???

Hugs & Kisses,
Stylo Niks...

FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM RANGE

Hi everyone,
        Hope you all are doing well.You all might be aware that recently i had been to Goa & Mumbai for a fun trip where for almost a week or more we stayed at Taj Group of Hotels.You can read those posts very soon on my blog. In Goa,we stayed at Taj Exotica, Goa and in Mumbai at Taj Lands End, Bandra.Being a beauty blogger, i always jump when i got to try out some new products.We received some complimentary toiletries for usage at the hotels.I have always read rave reviews of this Luxurious Ayurvedic brand Forest Essentials ,but never got my hand on any of their products.
FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM
SHAMPOO,CONDITIONER, HAND & BODY LOTION
        The toiletries consists of  Forest Essentials Aloe Vera & Neem Bath & Shower Gel, Shampoo, Hair Conditioner & Hand and Body Lotion. Since i always wanna try out this brand, so i had huge expectations. Stating my experience with all these product one after the other,so do read till the end for the review.

FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM BATH & SHOWER GEL - The Bath & Shower Gel of the range is transparent in colour. It has a refreshing fragrance of Aloe Vera & Neem which is just to indulge in.The fragrance stay for good 3-4 hours. A person gets totally relaxed & de-stressed  after having a bath with the Body Wash. It keeps the body hydrated & supple. Another wonderful thing which i loved about this Bath & Shower Gel is the Key Ingredients which are all so pure & ayurvedic,So no worry of chemicals and enjoy yourself with this appealing treat to the body.

FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM SHAMPOO -  The Aloe Vera & Neem shampoo is again in transparent colour.The shampoo is quite gentle on the hair & it do removes all the oil & greasiness out of the hair. Though it needs a generous amount of the shampoo to create lather in my mid length hair, so you need to apply it more in quantity in comparison to regular shampoos.The fragrance of the shampoo is lingering which made me love my hair for more longer.

KEY INGREDIENTS - Aloe Vera Extract, Lethicin, Almond Oil, Bhringraj, Haritaki, Heena, Reetha, Amla, Neem Oil.  
All the key ingredients are purely ayurvedic and the best part is that Heena, Reetha, Amla etc. are very good conditioning agents which are used as conditioners since ages at our homes,which makes me more confident to use this shampoo.

KEY INGREDIENTS & OTHER DETAILS OF THE FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM RANGE
FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM HAIR CONDITIONER - Conditioners are a very important part of Hair Care regime as they provide a thin film on the strands of our hair to protect them from further damage.Conditioner of the range is opaque & white in colour. It is a moisturising hair Conditioner. 

KEY INGREDIENTS - Coconut Milk, Almond Oil, Aloe Vera Extract, Jatamansi, Gudhhal, Bhrami, Heena, Neem Oil.

After reading the ingredients list,i feel these so familiar as i just started to co-relate to those ads in which a granny suggest these names of these things to the younger generation for getting voluminous & beautiful hair.

FOREST ESSENTIALS ALOE VERA & NEEM HAND & BODY LOTION - Moving on to the last product of the range is the Hand & Body Lotion, which is again an exemplary product. The lotion is in white colour. It is really hydrating & moisturising. It softens the skin and is non greasy i.e. perfect for the weather conditions of moist & humid places. It is perfect to suit normal to combination skin but probably not for those having very dry skin.
         After applying it on the hand, it stays for around 5-6 hours like any other body lotion while the fragrance stays for 2-3 hours after application. I just loved the fragrance of the whole range despite having a sensitive nose, so seriously you can understand how much i loved the range.

KEY INGREDIENTS - Aloe Vera Extract, Burnt Sugar, Almond Oil, Gokharu, Satavari, Neem Extract.

PACKAGING-: Since these were provided as complimentary toiletries for our stay, so they were in a cute plastic travel size bottle which are perfectly apt for 2 adults for one day.

AVAILABILITY-: Now the saddest part of the story is that as soon as i returned, i searched them on the catalogue of their website & i was really very disappointed that this range is not available in the market for public.This is a range exclusively made/curated for Taj Group of Hotels & their clients.So the best option is if you want to indulge in this range, u need to have a stay at Taj/Oberoi Hotels...

SF RATING-: 9.9/10

FINAL VERDICT-: All the four of them are totally perfect to crave for as they bring a natural radiance & glow with their usage.It was a awesome experience of using them & believe me that their fragrance is still lingering in my mind till today...These products nourish the skin, with organically grown herbs, fruits, flowers and their infusions that are nutrient rich and naturally hydrating & moisturising.
