What to avoid in your lip balm

Finding where your lip balm went can be tough – but finding the right one can be even tougher. According to Reviews.com, there are a wide variety of allergens and irritants in most lip balm products making them unsuitable to do what they are meant to do – moisturize your lips. In fact, these failing ingredients can make your lips even drier. If you are constantly having to reapply your lip balm, that may actually be a sign that it contains ingredients that ultimately dry your lips instead of moisturize them.

Common Irritants: Camphor, phenol, and menthol
Ingredients like camphor, phenol and menthol are often used in “medicated” lip balms as acids in exfoliating exercises, kind of like chemical peels. While exfoliation sounds like a good idea, it actually tears off the tissue on your lips instead of repairing it. Menthol and camphor can actually burn when used on chapped skin, causing further irritation. Exfoliated skin can also cause sun damage.

Common Allergens: Vitamin E, Fragrances, and Beeswax
A significant percentage of people use lip balm containing Vitamin E experience contact dermatitis (an itchy allergic reaction). Meanwhile, fragrances and dyes found in flavored lip balms can also pave the way for allergic irritation. Beeswax is also common in many lip balms because of its moisturizing capabilities; however, be careful because it is also known as a source of irritation for many. While all of these allergens are not affecting everyone, if you experience dryness or itchiness from your lip balms, check to see if it contains the ingredients above!

If ingredient lists are too overwhelming or you’re still feeling itchiness in your lip balm, go with the ever reliable, one-ingredient formula – Vaseline.

Book Review : "Happiness is all we want" by Ashutosh Mishra

                          Hey guys! I am back with a brand new review of this phenomenal book " Happiness is all we want" by Ashutosh Mishra. If I have to classify the genre of this book, I would place it between somewhere Self-help and spiritual, but yet a page turner.
                          Usually self help books or spiritual books are good to understand but difficult to apply, which is not the case with this book. The author has described wonderfully how we perceive happiness and go after it, while it is not what makes us happy. In this world of high competition and ambitions, we have forgotten to define

Book Review : "Second Chance" by Dr. Sandeep Jatwa

                               Hey guys! So you might have got to know about this book I read recently (off course, if you follow my fb page you might have got it!). 
                               "Second Chance - .......If you were given a second chance how would you change things........ " The title and tagline of book pretty much explains that its about inspiration, emotions, goodwill etc. But what it doesn't explains is that this book is going to change you forever, dissolve all the ego issues you have, make

Review: Bblunt Salon Secret High Shine Crėme Hair Colour

                              Hi guys, I am back with a review on Bblunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour wine deep burgundy, shade no. 4.20. So as I had already tried Bblunt product, and which are actually good, I was pretty excited to try it out.

4. Claims its ammonia free
5. It has good fragrance (which confirms it is ammonia free as no smell of ammonia is observed)
6. Enriched with Silk proteins, giving epic shiny hairs
7. Comes in 7 blockbuster shades
8. 100% grey coverage
9. Its just for Rs. 89/- only


How to use :
The box contains -

I am using a china clay bowl. Add the Colourant, developer and Shine tonic to the bowl, using a tinting brush,  mix the contents until it is uniform iin texture, creamy and smooth. Apply the mixture immediately to the hair using the tinting brush. Leave it on for 30 minutes (45 minutes for the deep shade). Add a small amount of water and emulsify for 5 minutes.

My experience :
                          As of now, I dont have much hair greying problem but my love to try different shades made me try out this awesome product and shade. Few strands which were greying were covered completely, and as my hair color is black or on darker tone, after using this product it got a deep burgundy shade. It looks more pretty when in sunlight or light in back drop, giving a highlight tough to the hairs. I totally loved the shade and also the hair texture. My hair got smooth, silky and shiny as if deep conditioning is done. I got few compliments too for it.

                            I would totally recommend to try out this product and let me know your experience here in comments below. Hope this review was enough informative and you loved it.

Review : Bblunt Curl Defining Leave-in Cream!

                        Hey guys! This is a review post in collaboration with Bblunt! I recently came across this amazing curl defining cream by Bblunt. Niki has this fascination for curls and wavy hairstyle while I have this graduated bob which requires inward turning curl at the end. So I was in search of an effective cream which would help me maintaining my and niki's hairstyle. When I saw this cream, I thought of trying it out and I had amazing experience.
