Sheer Skinz Bhringraj Hair Oil - Review

Hii lovelies! Welcome back to chatpatiilife again, today am back with another review from the sheer skinz brand. Last time I had reviewed their lovely soaps which you can check out here as well, well they are about to over and will gonna get more soon! Now back to today’s product it’s a bhringraj hair oil!!

Confession!! I am really champi lover, when I was in school I love to have oil in my hair no matter what others say, and yes my hair were only manageable through regular oiling because I have mid wavy curly hair if you could say that! But as I grow older my mom thought its best that I start doing it myself and then it never happens that religiously ever. Till I got the sheer skinz bhringraj hair oil to get my spirits back on my hair oiling.

About the brand

As I had already stated about the brand and products I got from them for review here in my first post I won’t gonna drag you to boredom again, if you are reading about it first time you can check out the previous review here.

Product & claims

So the product in limelight today is the bhringraj head massage hair oil from sheer skinz brand. Claims to be the natural remedy for hair fall, hair growth, dryness, split hair, premature greying and dandruff. Potent herbs in this oil provides nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles. It improves blood flow and stimulate hair roots for natural growth.

Packaging

The packaging of the product is really simple and cute. The oil comes in a rectangular bottle which has screw tight cap and is sealed with plastic shrink packaging. And the bottle is then packed in a rectangular box package also. So double protection!

The bottle of the oil is tough plastic but see through so you can see how much are you taking. Well to check out the sturdiness of bottle I hit it randomly toss on the floor and it does not even had a scratch (though I don’t think it was necessary, but it’s fun to throw things!), so I could say it is sturdy bottle and to prevent leakage it has plastic stopper inside the screw cap.

But now it comes with a flip open cap which is black and matches with bottle. Yippee!!


Ingredients

Extracts of bhringraj, amla, brahmi, haritaki, baheda, chandan. Nagarmutha, mulethi, bariyara, heena padmakh and seaseme oil.
That’s really lot of herbal products to have in one bottle.

Price

The cost of the oil is INR 135/- you can buy it here.

Shelf life

You can keep it for 3 years. But I doubt it will last that much when you start using it.

Weight

It is 100 ml.

Color

It is kind of a brownish color.

Fragrance

The fragrance can be strong for sensitive nose peoples. It is kind of bhringraj, sweet smell which reminds me of the smell of oil my mum used to make with various flower. Will share the recipe of DIY hair oil one day.


My experience


Direction to use – took a small amount in a bowl or as I do you can take small amount on your palm and with the fingertips apply it on the scalp. Rub gently with pad of fingers, avoid using nails as they can lead to breakage of hair. I always apply it a night before I had to wash my hair or sometimes like on Saturday night and washing on Monday morning.

The oil has little strong fragrance which I like a lot. It fills the whole room when I start to apply the oil and just my brother does not like the smell. But you know brothers right!!

I had used it for more than a month now, and I could really say it works. My hair are smoother with regular use of the hair oil, more shiny and manageable. The growth is what I cannot be sure about but yes, there is a visible change in the length of my hair. Every time when I apply the oil in my head it really takes me about nice half an hour to message it nicely in my head which of course increase the blood circulation in my head during massage. It is not so greasy yet you can tell the oil is there. It works like a magic on dryness of scalp which in last helps with the dandruff control. It gives the strength to hair which leads to lesser flyways.

Let’s just summaries it in pros and cons

Pros


  • As always the first pro is – budget friendly.
  • Travel friendly as double cap prevents leakage.
  • Natural ingredients
  • True to the claim
  • Provides shine to hair
  • Smooth application
  • Non sticky, non-greasy

Cons

  • Maybe some people feel the smell as overpowering.



Rating –

                                4.5 /5

Chatpatiilife’s Recommendation

I would recommend you to really invest in this hair oil as it is really effective in controlling hair fall, dandruff, and itchiness and really encourages hair growth. It is really being a hair care regime for me in last months and am very fond of it. Will love to stash it for future also.

My dresslink haul - review of products from dresslink.

Hello!! And welcome back to chatpatiilife! Toady am with a haul here, yes my first haul. It was long due on the blog, but I need to be using all what I got and get the best views out of them before giving my mixed review here. So now without any further delay it is here. So read till the end to know more about what I got, where I had got it from and how much do I really liked it.
and yes, in the end don't forget to check out the coupon codes!!
dresslink review.


Dresslink.com is an online shopping site. The main headquarters of dresslink is based in Hong Kong. I had already shared my wish list from the site with you all before if you haven't saw that before, you can check it out here.
So. I was super excited when I got the chance to review the site and complete my wish list by buying the products from them.

Well I added the china post for delivery of product which is kind of the cheapest in them or otherwise my shipping charges would exceed my actual buy. The parcel came in a month but it was ok for me.
So these are the things I got from them.


1.       The dress!!

Yes, the dress from the Dresslink. I never had worn a dress before so when I saw this dress I was super excited to have it as I was thinking to pair it up with a legging and rock it. It is a button down on upper half till the belt and after that a midi. The size of the dress is perfect according to what I had chosen. But, the dress is made of polyester fabric which is quite uncomfortable for wearing in summer. The only drawback is the material of dress because of which I won't think I would be wearing it a lot.



2.       Well, the second item in the list is a hair detangler.

As I had said in my wish list that I was long looking out for a hair brush or detangler, so when I saw this on Dresslink I thought why not give this one a try. There were two colors available to buy one is hot pink and other one is black. I choose the hot pink as it would be more vibrant color to look at.
The detangler is quite nice, it do stand on its claim to avoid pulling the hair and detangling easily. My hair are kind of curly wavy so I really liked how it manages to detangle them without a lot breakage.

3.       The cute makeup brush set.

This was one of the cute makeup brush set which I found on the website. I was kind of skeptical about it, but to my shock the brush are really of nice quality. The foundation brush is soft while the other brushes are soft yet sturdy to give perfect result. Some of them are not labeled with the use while as you can see many of them are in different sizes for single type of use.

4.       Cute makeup pouches/ travel organizer.

Many of you may know that I love to organize things, be it my house hold, wardrobe or rare makeup items that I have. I had purchased two of those lovely looking travel organizer/ makeup pouches offered by dresslink. And they are really pretty one of them is the zebra print while the other one has the red hat and heels print on black. Both of them are cute and really easy for carry around.

So these things wrap my dresslink parcel and I could say that am satisfied with my haul. As they were all sent to me and not my purchased exactly, I am kind of satisfied. But, I won’t recommend purchasing a clothing item from the dresslink while for other things like makeup bags, brushes etc. the dresslink is a good option.
And now the part to share the coupon code

DLblog5 == Get $5 off on once purchases of $59​
DLblog10 ==Get $10 off on once purchases of $99

So, my overall rating for dresslink would be 3.8/5


Do let me know if you have any purchase from dresslink, n how your experience was.

A memorable event with indiblogger with catchupongrowth

Hi friends and welcome back to Chatpatiilife once again. Today am sharing some personal/ professional experience I had just last week which was became one of the most memorable outing for me. It was the Indi blogger meet with collaboration to the Horlicks for their new product launch Horlicks growth+. It was a mesmerizing event I attended in my life. A fun filled event with full of like-minded people yet, everyone is different somehow. Want to know every aspect of the day, so read till the end.
Well as per start from enrolment, yes all the blogger on Indi blogger were given the chance to join in this amazing meet. We just had to confirm the seat to join and it was really easy. As soon as I opted for the pass the email from Indi team chimes in my mailbox sending the QR code to me with the basic details like the dress code and rules regulations. But one thing that never ever left out is the sense of humor of the Indi crew. (Yes I know lot of Indi’s here, but we all are Indians, so it’s great!!)


my pass to indimeet


Event day

Now we get straight to the event, well the Indi meet as we say it is not a small event, and if you think that the Indi blogger would have arranges it in the place like CCD or some fancy cafe, so think again. The place where the Indi meet was organized was none other than the Lalit, New Delhi. That's what we call a huge thinking.

The timing was from 12:30 to 5:00 but if you asked me it was really felt like we just didn't get much time. As there were so many bloggers, so much knowledge passing through one to another that I never wanted it to end. Well as the event began even before 12:30 huge swarm of the bloggers were waiting in the lobby of the Lalit. As the doors to the hall opened we all have to check in with the QR codes/ passes which ultimately check-ins to our twitter itself, amazing isn't it. Well as we all were rushed through the open gates of hall, the smell of delicious food welcome us and every control over the diet would have been gone from every female blogger there for sure. The tasty variety of dal and curry with rice and butter naan full filled our stomach and our heart already. The gossiping with other bloggers about their blog, latest work, their passion, their origin as many of them were from out of Delhi as well like from Jaipur, Bangalore, Kolkata to name few. It was overwhelming to see that the people had especially came from far to be a part of Indi meet. Well all those chatter fill the place with togetherness.

As we just finished the yummy treat we all were ushered to the conference room where our host Anoop welcome us with full of energy and exciting surprises. First to make us comfortable and relaxed he made us to play a game, where any random blogger could give the intro and will get some prize. But behold the prize could be anything from a cup of yogurt to 1000 INR voucher or it could even be an apple!!! (But it came to be a real apple though).

Product launch

After the panel was over, the stage was taken by Dr. Amaan Khan and Dr. Aditya Kaushik for the product launch. And the product was the Horlicks growth+ which is made especially considering the malnourished or say undernourished children to help them getting taller, stronger and sharper. After the product launch we all got the chance to taste the yummy Horlicks and I got the great vanilla flavored one. Which was like melted dewy vanilla ice-cream in my mouth. It was really yummy.

yummy horlicks to taste!!
After all this we got tini tiny break to have coffee or tea and recharge ourselves as they told us that we won’t be able to sit when we will come back. Beholding the threat in our mind we all got to the coffee bar to recharge ourselves and chatting some more.
When we get back the arrangement was changed seats were moved to the sides and we all standing in between. So coming to the point we were asked to make team of ten I were in team 7!! (Well you will know why I tell you my team number).
looking for teams


leaders getting surprise props



All the teams got some props in which a fruit basket and Horlicks were for all and some special one according to what our leader got. We had to make a video using those props which has to be in 30 secs. And I would tell you it really wasn’t easy. We had discussed a lot, changed our video 4 times because it was exceeding the time limit. But at last after a lot effort our video was made and one of our team member and my dear friend jinjin posted it on twitter. After the videos were made we all had group photos to make the day more memorable.

Trip i always remember - nainital.

Hi friends how have you been?? Well we all could say that we all are been hot lately  J , well given the weather right now in Delhi I could say that all the people here are super-hot right now. We all look forward to these summery months of May and June to plan a getaway to any amazing place where we could be more relaxed away from every tension and chilling out.

Well like every other person I have my own aspiration to a place to visit in coming days. I am looking forward for the vacation back to nanital. Yes, I said back to nanital because I have been there once before when I was young around 4 or 5 years old.so, why not instead of making plans here I would tell you about how it was for me to visit nanital for first time.

 

My trip


I still remember it was the time of winter at that time, it was one of my favorite vacation ever as it was my birthday in the end of December. My dad had been planning for it for a long time and had booked the Domestic Airlines from Delhi to pantnagar near nanital.

After reaching to the pantnagar we had hired a taxi to nanital which was about 72 Kms away from there. The climate was a bit chilly but no aspect of any snowfall was there. We had reached to our destined hotel easily within an hour and waited there till we could have lunch and some rest. I was not much happy there as I really wanted to see the snowfall but nevertheless, my dad had some plans to make my day special.

We were in the hotel situated in front of Naini Lake, which is the famous lake of nanital and because of which the place has got its name. My dad had arranged all the things before we stepped out of hotel. As we go to the Naini Lake just when I step around it, I saw the fleet of Ducks at there. I was excited yet scared to go near them, but my cousin took me with him near the fleet to feed the bread crumbs to them. After a while we went for a boat ride. It was great experience to watch duck surrounding our boat and swimming beside us. Beside this, we went to hanuman temple. Which is just near by the lake. A little devotion with fun made that day a memorial day. But, trip doesn’t end there.

Next day was like a blessing because it was snowing early morning. I was so much excited to watch the falling snow and to feel it on my hands. When I got the chance to get out of hotel the snowfall was stopped but there was heavy snow all around me. We all had played the snow fight there.
We travelled through bus it wasn’t that comfortable but view of nature and the image of nanital can only be gain by this kind of travel. We admire the view of Naini Lake through the top, which resembles an eye of the naina devi.

On our way back we had some shopping from bhotia market which is known for candles and wooden artifact as a souvenir to remember a close look to nature aka nanital.
