Get your Beauty Personalised with

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

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.

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"

          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 ; ;, 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...

Holla Everyone,

Since many days i have been updating you that very soon i'll be posting my pics of my ecstatic stay at Taj Exotica Goa,so here comes a detailed post of my stay and believe me , you will be bombarded with pictures of the place in this post and they are scintillating beautiful...You will definitely love each of it..

Taj Exotica is Located on the southwest coast of Goa,overlooking the Arabian sea,this Mediterranean-style 5 star resort is one of the best five star hotels in Goa and has a way of slowing down time to a tranquil tempo. 

 It is set amidst fifty-six acres of lush gardens, Taj Exotica is a showcase for relaxation with tropical-inspired design touches, grand architecture, a sun- drenched atrium, wide shady corridors, and flower lined patios for a memorable stay.

Taj Exotica is situated on pristine sands of Benaulim Beach with a 700 meter beach frontage.The Taj Exotica is subtly divided into the main hotel building with spacious deluxe and luxury rooms and two and four bedroom Villas.

We were picked up at the Dabolim airport by the Hotel Staff and were dropped to the Hotel in their Car.It was around 40-45 minutes drive to the hotel.

As you enter the hotel, you are welcomed into a very good looking lobby which on one side is leading to a Restaurant and on the other side is Taj Khazana (It is a luxury lifestyle boutique that showcases artefacts and collectibles created by master craftsmen of India which includes Sarees, Shawls,Jewellery,crafts, etc.) and Reception with a huge lounge area. 

As a welcome drink we were offered a option of Refreshing Mint Drink/Apple Juice which made us feel more energised.By the time my sister were checking in, i took some random photos of the main building...

We already had booked our rooms beforehand. We had booked 2 rooms of Ground Floor of Garden Villas (The Garden Villa, of 612 sq ft, is a spacious room in a 4 room villa. The room has a view of landscaped gardens.  All rooms have a private balcony or verandah.)which were not interconnected although Inter connecting rooms can be available on request.

But Since our rooms were not in the Main building, so we need to reach our room through Golf Car which was always very exciting to take a ride in it.

Since it was an exhausting afternoon and we want to do something productive in evening ,as we were given the activity chart of the day;so in order to get rest, we all agreed for in room dining for our brunch.In brunch we ordered some Veg Burgers, Pav Bhaji and some Cheese Sandwiches. The food was scrumptious and delectable while the presentation was also on top.
In Room Dining at our stay
It was a retreat staying there for 3 nights & 4 days but there is something were mentioning in this post without which this post can't be finished.It was that on 3rd day of our stay it was my brother - in -law birthday and we informed the hotel of this occasion before only, so when we returned after exploring Goa on that day, we got a little surprise from Taj Exotica.
A bouquet and some balloons decoration in the room.

PS* - Sorry i took the photo upside down but this arrangement was made by the Hotel on our request.

Celebration Time....Cheers
PS* - This Champagne was ordered by us for celebration...

These are some of the photo i selected from the huge lot of photos.Hope you also had a virtual tour of the Resort with me.There were numerous activities to be done over there but it was nearly impossible to experience everything in just 4 days..Do tell,how did u feel after reading this..Have u been there..Would love to read your experience also...

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. 
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.
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.

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

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.
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 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...

BedBathMore Paint Finder - Every Colour has a story to tell...

         For each one of us,the real comfort lies in our own confined boundaries and that boundary for me is my home...Home is the place where i could stay for all my life long with no complaints.I love decorating my home in the manner that it reflects my persona...But as Diwali is approaching next month ,so does the tensions too of how to get my house painted as per my taste & preference.
           I personally love loud & bright colours as they enhance the energy level of the place but my parents prefer lighter or pastel shades.As rightly quoted by Dr. Seuss " Why fit in when you were born to Standout",this time i got a chance by BedBathMore's  tailor made solution of  Paint Finder app to checkout how my home would appear if i would opt for bright colours.

So starting with the master bedroom ,i would love to see some rosy red as it is a colour of passion,energy,deep love&warmth.So Voila i found the Berger Red Rendezvous perfect for the bed room as it is much balanced than to the fiercely red which is not considered apt for bedrooms... 

Optimist orange denotes the fire element in it which in turn increases productivity, enthusiasm, pleasure & the colour keeps us lively and playful, so a perfect choice for the children's room ,to keep them focused on their ambition together with being a little nasty too...
Asian Paints Camp fire


Darker shade of orange like Sahara Sunshine is stimulating to the appetite. I love having people around the kitchen table, so orange will keep them talking and eating for a long time. I love having orange in my kitchen as they are more subtle than red, yet still increase the appetite and promote conversation and social interaction.


In the living room,i still want to have the pastel shade of green & yellow colour as it refreshes the mind & soul.Berger Limeade is perfectly apt for my living room as it is soothing & relaxing giving a feel of sitting next to nature.

A certainly dark green colour with silver in the washroom as green will lead to calmness & silver will count in for shine & shimmer...These colours help to enhance an organic vibe in a bathroom. These types of colours are also great to help soften otherwise hard edges and geometric shapes in our bathing spaces.
Berger Valley Vista Shade 
              Altogether my home will have the rarest yet subtle & classy colour combination theme of Brights & Pastels.Really the Paint finder app made me visualise the reality much before when it is supposed to be done...Would definitely show these to my parents and then would collectively take decision with my family....

“I am participating in the #PaintFinder activity in Association with BlogAdda & Bed Bath & More

Fuschia Cherry Caramel Lip Balm Review, Price & Buy in India...

Hey all,
      I think all the girls as well as guys (coz of their girls,be their girl friends or just friends...) could relate to the quote...I can't imagine a girl who doesn't love lip Balms...Even my little niece of just 5 yrs loves to apply her lip balm every morning and many times a day.Till now you all must have hit the point & guessed already only that i am going to review a lip balm and i.e. absolutely correct....Today i am reviewing the Cherry Caramel Lip Balm by Fuschia.

Fuschia Cherry Caramel Lip Balm

Claims -:

  • Infused with 100% vegetarian & natural ingredients
  • Shea butter & kokum butter blended with Vitamin E,provide extra smoothness,moisture & antioxidants
  • Subtle & Soothing fragrance of natural oils
  • Formulated to rejuvenate & keep your lips supple
  • Free of parabens,petroleum base,artificial tints & synthetic perfumes.
Ingredients -: 
Ingredient List of  Cherry Caramel Lip Balm 
Packaging -:Fuschia Cherry Caramel Lip Balm comes in a transparent small tub packaging with screw lid.The packaging is very cute & travel friendly but if kept open for some time dust is attracted towards it ,so there is a  chance of   product contamination as compared to balm sticks.

Price -: Rs 225 for 8 gms

Availability -: 
My Take on the product -: It is a pretty good lip-balm, which protect & moisturise lips,cuticles or elbows, or anywhere on the body where dry skin patches appear.The lip balm is translucent but does not have any colour retention.The fragrance of the product is purely of Caramel and is strong for people like me who have sensitive noses and it can easily be identified by just holding the tub in your hands without even opening it. The lip balm is light on lips and two - three strokes in one application keep lips hydrated for 2-3 hours.The lip balm is non greasy & sticky as well as neither does it contain synthetic scents, flavors, parabens, or petroleum,which is the best part of it. It is perfect to apply it as a base for lipsticks,lip glosses,lip stains, etc. as it increases  their staying power on the lips.
            The only issue i had with the lip balm is its strong fragrance which is harder for me.Another thing i expected from the lip balm was to be a little colour oriented because college going girls like me sometimes prefer to apply only lip balms,so being it would be colour oriented, it would give a nude or pinkish tone to the lips,making the lips looking more natural.
SF Rating -:  8/10

Final Verdict-:Fuschia Cherry Caramel Lip Balm is a handmade lip balm made from natural & organic products which is formulated to rejuvenate and keep the Lips supple &soft. For every organic or herbal skincare product lover ,a must try.I instead of repurchasing the same flavour ,i would love to try another one with soft fragrance.
