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. Till then all you lovely people, check it out this amazing website and share your experiences with me in the comments below. Would love to hear from you all...

Love u...
Stylo Niks.

Press Release - The Nature’s Co. Summer Special Launch

Passionfruit and Sandalwood Body Lotions

As the dull and dry winter has gone, your skin is probably breathing a huge sigh of relief. Buh-bye to dry, winter skin, as it’s time to say hello to hydrated summer glow! Summer is reaching to its peak slowly day by day. It is not only you who gets thirsty in summer; it’s your skin too. Just like your body, your skin also needs full nourishment & moisture in summer. Even while you enjoy your summer vacations, say on a long day at the beach and a dip in the sea (or a chlorinated pool), you will have left your skin parched and dehydrated – you definitely need to get your hands on these winning new moisturizers. Read more to know why.



In the summer, it's absolutely essential to switch up your beauty regimen and opt for a daily lightweight lotion to keep skin smooth and silky. Thick body butters and heavy creams weigh you down and make you feel sweaty. Not only can overly occlusive formulas leave an oily residue, they can clog pores and lead to body breakouts — definitely a no-no. So it is necessary to use a moisturizer which is not too heavy and has very nice fresh fragrance. This season, trade in your body butter for one of these beauty expert-approved lightweight lotions instead to keep you smooth and shiny all summer long.

PASSIONFRUIT BODY LOTION 

This exotic delicious body lotion will melt on your skin to renew the skin cells and make it wonderfully smooth. Loaded with nutrients and vitamins it hydrates & nourishes tired and dull looking skin, infusing moisture & giving you a supple youthful skin all day long. Apply it liberally and evenly, both in the morning and night. It is especially effective when applied after bathing on moist skin. Volume: 250ml. MRP: 625/-. Chekc it out here: http://bit.ly/1N1fPlK

It is especially effective when applied after bathing on moist skin. Volume: 250ml. MRP: 625/-. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/1VfzOjb

H&M BODY MIST - ROSE BUD & VIOLETTE

You guyzz know that i am a avid lover of body mists/perfumes.So does my family knows about my love, so my eldest sissy Tanvi (our contributor) gifted me this H&M Body Mist. 
H & M BODY MIST - ROSE BUD & VIOLETTE
The H&M body mist of Rose Bud and Violette has a beautiful package! It is totally adorable. A long, transparent bottle with a rubber band with a rose on it to the cap. A very flowery combination in the name ,so you can bet that it has flowery or floral fragrance !
I 'm personally very crazy about the scent of roses .They smell divine.Similarly in this body mist you can smell the roses directly with the cheerful scent of violets through.When u spray it , it feels that you have your hands in a freshly plucked water sprayed roses which is just too fresh & enticing.
But there is something which i noticed after my brother sprinkled it in my room is that if you apply/spatter a more of it , its aroma become quite cheap like excess of it made me feel eww!!!. So you definitely need to be mindful while splashing it.
H&M BODY MIST
The lasting power/endurance of the mist is really very long of around 8-9 hrs as mild fragrance of roses keeps on lingering for even longer while the top notes vanish within one hour.

Overall i just loved it cute packaging & its fresh fragrance.It looks so pretty in my cabinet.You can find it easily in any of the H&M stores across United States.(I have not checked their store in India,so don't know about it.) But with my serious advice that if you distinctively do not like roses, I would not recommend you this one.

Bblunt Climate Control Anti - Frizz Leave in Cream Review

Heya all,
            In the recent time you all must have noticed the buzz of BBlunt Products.I have already reviewed BBlunt's Back to Life Dry Shampoo & Spotlight Hair Polish. You can check there review here.So today i am reviewing another product from the range and i.e.BBlunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave in Cream.Do read the whole review to know that whether it works to the claims it make.

BBlunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave in Cream
Ingredients & Claims -:
“This versatile cream ensures your hair looks great, however hot, dry or  humid it gets out there.It enhances natural movement,smoothens and  leaves you in charge, whatever the weather.”
"Protects from the environment & heat  styling damage"
Ingredients of BBlunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave in Cream
Packaging -:The packaging of the product is quite impressive.It comes in a shiny black plastic pyramid shaped bottle which is new in its own kind coz all other conditioners or creams come in round bottle.It works on pump dispenser mechanism which make it easier for use.
               However this big one is not travel friendly but anyways for travelling purposes those mini versions of them will be quite cute & handy.

How to Use -: 
Works best on damp, towel dried hair. Take a small quantity into your palms. Apply evenly, focusing on mid-lengths & ends, keeping away from the scalp. Style as desired.


Swatch of  Bblunt Climate Control Anti - Frizz Leave in Cream
Price -: Rs 450 for 150g

Availability -: 
To buy on  Nykaa.com , click here
To buy on  Bblunt.com , click here

My Take on the product -: The consistency of the cream is semi liquid and is non greasy.It is white in colour. The cream have a perfume fragrance which stays for about an hour or two but not longer than it.It looks pretty similar to the conditioner with the only difference that this is a leave in cream while conditioners are needed to be rinsed off.

  BBlunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave in Cream
         The results of the cream is good enough to give it a thumbs up but the frizziness of my hair does not went off completely.I have been reading about this product from many of my co-bloggers that it works for normal hair so i had a huge expectation from it that it would reduce my frizziness to a great extent and yes i was a bit disappointed with this fact.But another reason that popped up in my mind is that may be at my place,winter season is going on ,so maybe my hair tends to be a bit more dry,hence it doesn't worked properly.But since in the coming days, we are awaiting Autumn & Spring season;so i will try it then again and will update you guyzzz..

SF Rating -:  7.8/10

Final Verdict-: BBlunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave in Cream is a light weighted cream & when applied gives the feeling of instant freshness.It doesn't weighs down the hair & the fragrance is really mild as well as pleasing.It do tames the frizzy hair to a certain extent but not completely which i expected it to do.I though had not tested it as a product to protect from heat styling damage but it does enhances the natural movement & smoothen my hair....


Hope you had amazing time reading this post & do share your reviews on the product in the comment box below....
Till then to all of you,forget all those bad hair days as it's time to #BSmooth


Love u,

BBlunt's Season Favourite -Back to Life Dry Shampoo & Spotlight Hair Polish Review, Price & Buy Online in India

Hi everyone,
       In this season of marriage and numerous events, everyone wants to be playful yet beautiful.But due to tight schedules it is nearly impossible to look perfect every time.But then only our styling tools & products come as a saviour.The much hyped BBlunt Back to life Dry Shampoo is one of them.Like our old hindi movies dialogue that till the time,there is no happy ending,it is not an end. Dry shampoo may be good but to complete the look we need the BBlunt SpotLight Hair polish.Today on my testing table are these 2 products from BBlunt. So lets dig them a bit deeper.
BBLUNT BACK TO LIFE DRY SHAMPOO & SPOT LIGHT HAIR POLISH
Ingredients & Claims -:

  • BACK TO LIFE DRY SHAMPOO - "Instant freshness is now a spray away.This Dry Shampoo (no water required) does a smooth job of absorbing excess grease & grime and revamps your hair in seconds.Don't leave home without it.Specially created for Indian Hair."
  • SPOTLIGHT HAIR POLISH - "This lightweight heavyweight gives even the dullest hair a glossy, smooth finish. It’s about maximum shine with minimum fuss. Step into the spotlight. Specially created for Indian hair. Protects from the environment and heat styling damage."



Packaging -:The hair polish & dry shampoo comes in a sleek steel can like that of a deodorant of Silver & Blue Colour respectively with a plastic cap on it. There is a spray nozzle on opening the cap to dispense the product. The can is very light weight and compact and can be carried around very easily.

How to Use -: 
  1. Use on dry hair
  2. Shake well before use
  3. Hold can six inches away  

  • Spray Dry Shampoo evenly, close to the roots. Leave on for two minutes. Massage and brush thoroughly while,
  • Spray a light mist evenly of Spotlight Hair Polish around the hair, focusing on mid-length and ends.

Price -: 
  • Back To Life Dry Shampoo - Rs 550 for 75gm/125ml *
  • Spotlight Hair Polish - Rs 550 for 125gm/150ml *

* Mini versions of these are also available in the market.

Availability -: 

My Take on the product -: 
BBLUNT BACK TO LIFE DRY SHAMPOO - I tried this two days after my hair wash as my hair tends to get super oily with my gyming sessions. I divided my hair into sections and sprayed on to scalp as per the instructions.After spraying it, just got the feeling of Carbon-dioxide we use in dry ice practical of our Tenth Standard.(OK, Sorry for my interpretation & back in my current mode) When i sprayed it on my hair,i can see the white coloured dust powder on my scalp.Then massaged & combed it for some time and the whiteness disappears.
     After the whole ritual, i found visual difference in my hair.The sweat and greasiness went off to a great extent.Another pros i found out of using it that there was bounciness in my crown hair.But after using this dry shampoo,my oil free scalp doesn't remain longer.The staying power is about 6-7 hours which is pretty much good for an event.
     Now coming on the cons of the product reading the ingredients list gave me a lot of tension as it contains a lot of chemicals in it,so best suited for emergency situations but not a replacement of Washing the hair.The fragrance rather smell is not very pleasant but it is bearable when you get rid of the mess of your tresses...
BBLUNT BACK TO LIFE DRY SHAMPOO & SPOT LIGHT HAIR POLISH
BBLUNT SPOTLIGHT HAIR POLISH - The hair polish is an instant spray that brings shine & glossiness in the hair.It has to be used on dry hair. I used it to set my hair style and bring brightness to my hair.I am pretty much satisfied with the result as my hair got instant shine & it even helped me to tame my flyovers.4-5 sprays of the Hair polish are enough to cover my mid length hair.
     The staying power of the Polish is quite good like any other hair spray i.e.6-7 hours.It has a mild scent which is hardly noticeable & fades away within next 15 minutes.The hair polish actually makes hair look more lustrous in photographs which is a pro for me & my other blogger friends.
   But seeing the ingredients is really heart wrenching because the list is full of chemicals, so it definitely can't be used daily.
        
SF Rating -: 8.5/10


Final Verdict-: Both these products are really quite good at their work.They take a grand total of 60 seconds and our greasy roots will look fresh again. We'll be ready to style our hair the way we want. So who wouldn't want to rather ditch our regular shampoo for this once and instead save all that time.The only issue i felt with these products which is to be dealt is the presence of huge chemicals in their ingredients.So these act as a saviour in unavoidable situations like that of emergency but are not the replacement of the regular hair care regime.

These products by BBlunt are the season's favourite...Definitely check these products and do share your comments below...Hope u had an amazing time reading this blogpost.

Love u,
Stylo Niks...
