Nioxin Scalp Renew Dermabrasion Treatment – A Review

In this *really* hectic day-to-day life, we often forget the basics. Then suddenly we realize a scalp facial is just what you needed. That’s exactly how I felt last week when I had a chance to try out the new Nioxin Scalp Renew Dermabrasion Treatment from the Bodycraft Salon, Jayanagar, Bangalore.

It all started with the stylish discussing with me about the quality of my hair and the weaknesses and what I regularly put it through. He determined my hair to be medium-to-coarse.

My Recent Inglot Purchases

All about Inglot!

Recent is a very relative word. Let us not get into how recent this “recent” is. 🙂

As you might already know, Inglot is one of my favorite brands. The products are mostly more affordable than the higher end brand and have almost the same quality. Here in Bangalore, the Inglot outlet was already far away from where I stay. Now, it has moved from 1 MG Mall to a farther place, Phoenix Market City. This is one of the reasons I make sure I visit the Inglot stores on whatever other cities I go to. And by that I mean, Chennai and Kolkata.

Therefore, here I present to you, the loot from one of my “recent” travels.

Inglot Mattifying Pressed Powder, Inglot AMC Cream Concealer 73,  Inglot Top Coat Matte

The L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique definitely intrigued me with the beautiful looking ads and the eye-catching packaging. I always love to try out new ways to make my eyes bold so it was perfect when I was sent the sample for my thoughts on it.

Here’s the first video I uploaded. It has all my nail-arts up until now.

Do like the video if you like all the nail arts. 😀

I know it is a little lengthy. I couldn’t believe there were 60 different nail arts! Man! I have got to start posting them all.

Christmas Nails: Version One, Stamping: Santa, Bells and Christmas Tree!

Christmas time is the one time in the year that I am sure that I will be in a permanent good mood, no matter what. A mental recitation of one of the famous Christmas Songs is enough to make me smiling and “bobbing” with joy. 🙂

Here’s a look at the first manicure I did for Christmas this year.
