This particular post is not something I am very excited about. Because nothing about this post is exciting. I do not tolerate any negativity on my blog, however, I do have to bring this to attention. I love and appreciate my fellow Fashion/Beauty/Lifestyle Bloggers and also my readers which is why I always let them know what’s best out there and so I also feel it is important that if something ain’t right, I also need to bring it to your attention.
It is no surprise that I am addicted to online shopping. I have been shopping online since years and have had a few annoying experiences where I did not get a particular product on time or it was of a great quality as it was mentioned on the website or I did not receive the order and I had to ask for refund. I did get a refund every time I have asked for it…. UNTIL
I ordered something from Beautybay.com 😐
I had ordered not one but 3 products (I do not wish to disclose what the product’s were since that is not really important and the idea of this post should not be distracted) and I never received the products nor did I ever get my refund.
Yes, I did all the jazz of writing to them and then they writing me back, which was a sheer waste of time because the reply from them actually was an automated email that they send.

This is was I kept getting.
I then posted on their “Facebook Page” and then finally they sent me an email asking me to take a printout of the form that was attached and sign it and scan and send it back.
I could not believe it. If I had all the time in the world to go out and get a printout and then scan it and send, I would have gone out and shopped instead of ordering things online. Plus they do not even have a customer care number where we can talk about any issues.
I have had the worst online shopping experience with Beautybay.com and would never suggest it to anyone.
Again, Sorry for the negative post but I thought this was important.
Let me now sulk in to it and try and re evaluate myself by sipping some Green tea and focus on what lovely things should I post for you guys next 😀 <3
My skin no matter how great it looks in pictures, is far from it in real life. The only reason why it is the way it is in pictures is because of the amazing editing app’s. I do wish I had a flawless skin so I can be spared from the extra hard work and annoyance while uploading pictures.
I suffer from Sun burn or Sun Tan, I have pigmentation, I break out because I have a sensitive skin and to top it all…I have oily skin 😐 All the skin issues that you can think of, I have it. I was so badly looking for a Skin care product that would help me balance out my skin tone, make my look matte and also protect me from the harmful sun ray’s that damages my skin but I never found it. I kept relying on Makeup and that only gave me break out as my skin is sensitive and could not handle the every use of it. Then finally, these amazing products came to my rescue and I have been loving them 😀
It is the “Garnier White Complete Fairness FaceWash and Cream”
Yes these products were sent to me for review but I am glad to inform that I genuinely have been loving the Garnier White complete fairness Cream because it is something that I have always wanted and I have no idea how I missed out on it because I have been using Garnier products since years.

I am absolutely loving it and I truly hope it works out as good as it did for me 😀 <3
As we all know Lemon is like a blessing for anyone who has the skin issue’s that I mentioned earlier. Lemon is a natural bleach for skin and can be used as a Skin lightener, Brightener, Shine Eliminator, Fighting Break out’s and Eliminating Blackhead’s. Both these products have Pure Lemon Essence and I can’t rely on any other brand as much as I would on Garnier because of my past experience with some if the products that I have used. But that’s just my opinion and I would love to know your’s too.
Do let me know if you have used these products before or if you try them after reading the post, how you liked it in the comments below 🙂
**Disclaimer**: The products were sent to me for review but my views and opinion’s are totally honest and unbiased
Everyone that knows me knows about my fondness of Hair Coloring. I am blessed with a beautiful hair texture (thanks to my genes) however, chemical treatment’s have definitely ruined the natural quality my hair had when I was younger. Thankfully, we do have some better way’s to color our hair and I am glad to introduce one in this post for my reader’s. It is the Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème hair colour.
AVAILABILITY: It comes in 4 different shades, which are ideal for Indian skin tone and texture. Yes there are 3 in the picture above because I used up the fourth one :p I was so excited to try it on that I did not click the picture.
The 3 shades in the picture are Natural Black, Burgundy and Dark Brown. The one that used on me was Natural Brown. (I will include the picture at the end of the post)
WHAT I LIKED: What I liked about this particular Hair Color is that it has Natural Ingredients like Coconut which we all know is excellent for hair. Coconut oil has been used since ancient times in India for grooming hair. Various remedies were prepared using herbs and coconut oil to prevent hair loss. The use of Coconut oil on hair helps to reduce protein loss in both damaged as well as undamaged hair. Coconut oil rich in lauric acid, has a high affinity for hair protein making your hair healthier. Henna is not only used to color your hair but also acts as a natural hair conditioner making your hair Shiny, Voluminous and Bouncy.
CONTENTS: 1 Sachet of Crème Colour, 1 Sachet of Developer and of course 1 Instruction leaflet.
SAFETY: Godrej Nupur Coconut Henna Crème Hair Colour claims that it has NO AMMONIA. Ammonia has been largely responsible for hair color’s ability to alter hair hue without washing out after only a few shampoos. This method of depositing coloring the hair has been commonly reported to have side effects such as stinging the eyes and scalp. Using ammonia-free colours may prevent that dry, over-processed feeling that has been a side-effect of using ammonia, and they are gentler on the hair.
PRICE: Godrej Nupur Coconut Crème Hair Colour is for only 39 rupees for 20 ml pack. Easily available in the market in the North-West of the country and also online.
HOW TO USE: It is very easy to use this product. Mix the developer and colour and apply on completely dry hair. Wait for 30 minutes and wash it off. No hassle.
Like I mentioned, I did apply the lightest shade that they have which is Natural Brown and since my hair was already highlighted I tried my best to only apply it to the parts that was color free. Here is the final result…
This picture above has been take from my iPhone in natural sun light. The color may vary on other’s depending on your hair texture and natural hair color. And again, I am going to repeat that I do have some highlights on my hair and so it may not look the same on everyone.
BUMMER: The quantity. As you can see in the picture, I do have pretty long hair and one packet was not enough. Last but very important, I wish they include plastic gloves so it is easier to apply as my finger’s did get some henna stains on it.
Well, as my final take, I would say it is a pretty good deal as it is so pocket-friendly. Over the years, Godrej Nupur has been chosen by women as a trusted companion for hair-health and nourishment. Living up to the brand values, they have successfully launched this special hair colour with different nourishing ingredients, enriched with Henna & Coconut.
I would mostly recommend it to some one who has very oily scalp as it does give volume to your hair instantly and I was also surprised at the shine I saw the next day when I washed my hair again.
A personal tip for people who have not been into coloring hair is that once you wash your hair after any kind of hair color, it is best to oil your hair and keep it over night and then wash it with Shampoo and Conditioner the next morning. It will help your hair stay nourished.
The color pay off is not crazy and so you need not worry about having insanely colored hair but I would also suggest you take a Skin Hypersensitivity test before using it as it may cause skin irritation in certain rare cases.
