Review and Swatches of Turmeric Healing Mask By Deyga

Pure and natural products are preferred the most when it comes to skincare. I have come across bunch of such brands who have some good natural products to offer. One of such brands is Deyga.

Mygirlypedia.com

I have tried bunch of their products which includes face and body care products. Recent one is being this healing mask. Turmeric being its key ingredient, it is named after it. As we all know, turmeric is widely known for its healing and brightening properties in Ayurveda. Question is, whether this product stands true to its name or not.!

Now that I have tried this mask multiple times, I will be reviewing it in detail for you.

Brand : Deyga

Name of the product : Turmeric healing mask.

Price : INR 600 for 100 ml

Shelf Life : 6 Months

Ingredients :

Here are the ingredient which sound like chemicals but are not. I have done a quick surfing to know more about them.

Vetiver essential oil is hailed for its use in skin cell regeneration and boosting the growth of new cells. It facilitates wound healing, effectively reduces scars, blemishes, and marks due to acne, burns or pox by removing dead skin cells from the body and hence bestows a radiant skin.

Guar gum, also called guaran, is a galactomannan polysaccharide extracted from guar beans that has thickening and stabilizing properties useful in food, feed, and industrial applications. Most personal care and beauty-related products contain guar gum, as it acts as a thickener, emulsifier and stabilizer in formulations for ointments and skin lotions.

Geogard ECT is made of Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerine, and Sorbic Acid; these are all components that all occur in nature. A preservation system that meets the ECOCERT standards. It is a paraben-free, formaldehyde-free, and isothiazolone-free based system. Offers broad spectrum protection activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeast and molds.

How to Use:

Packing:

This comes in a sturdy transparent plastic jar. Colour of the sticker on the jar resembles colour of turmeric. Light print of turmeric on the design makes the whole packing looks soothing.

Black screw lid is tight enough to be carried around without any worries about spillage. Plus, for double protection, it also has a white plastic lid inside.

All the required details are mentioned on the sticker.

Mygirlypedia.com

Fragrance :

One thing that definietly catches your attention when you open the screw lid is the fragrance. It is this soothing aroma of turmeric.! If you like fresh fragrance of turmeric, you are going to love this. It falls on stronger note, if you are someone who doesn’t like the smell of turmeric, you might find it overpowering.!

Texture:

It has gel like consistency. It’s light weight when applied.

Mygirlypedia.com

My Experience:

I get pimples during those days of the month due to hormonal changes. Those pimples are quite painful.!It hurts if I touch them. First and foremost expectation I had from this mask is to help me with the reduction of those painful pimples.

As mentioned on the package, I applied a layer of this mask on my cleansed face. I usually keep the mask on for not more than 10 minutes. I don’t really let the mask dry completely. When it is semi dry, I wash it off. So I was expecting to do the same even though it has been mentioned to keep it on for 30 minutes..! But to my surprise this mask takes a lot of time to dry. Hence 30 minutes mentioned on the package is justifiable.

Fragrance remains on for quite long time. I did not feel any discomfort because of the fragrance. I felt as if I have applied good Ayurvedic luxury face mask.!

After approximately half an hour, mask was semi dry. I washed it off with warm water.

Mygirlypedia.com

I have dry skin and some natural masks even though they address other skin concerns, they do leave my skin feeling dry. This mask did not do that. Even though my skin did not feel super plump, it did not scream for moisture either.

Talking about pimples. My pimples were reduced and so was the pain. Plus, one more thing I noticed is, it does lightens the pimple marks gradually, with frequent use.

Only thing I did not really like is the yellow tint it leaves behind. That’s because of turmeric content. Even if you wash it thoroughly, tint is going to last for sometime.!

Pros:

  1. Heals pimples.
  2. Lightens pimple marks.
  3. Little goes long way hence the jar is going to last long.
  4. Feels light on skin when applied.
  5. Sturdy packing.
  6. Ingredient list looks safe.
  7. Cruelty free.
  8. No added colour.
  9. Recyclable packing.
  10. Natural preservatives are used instead of any harmful chemical preservatives.

Cons:

  1. It leaves yellow tint.
  2. Some might find the fragrance overpowering.

Happy Shopping..!! 🙂

Note:

Even though this is a product with natural ingredients, I would still recommend patch test before trying it on face. Because different skin types behave differently to natural ingredients.!

Review of Hibiscus Gel By Puremie

Since the lockdown, most of us are spending time and money on skin care than any makeup product. For taking care of skin, homemade DIY stuffs are something that is keeping us occupied and skincare game interesting.!

Last year while browsing through Instagram, I came across this brand called Puremie. This brand offers clean and raw DIY stuffs that can be used in our skin care or hair care DIYs. 

I have bought some of their gels and masking materials. Today reviewing one of those products. 

They have 5 different gels that are their best sellers. Bought Aloe Vera Gel and Hibiscus gel out of those 5. Here is the detailed review of Hibiscus gel.

Mygirlypedia.com

Price : 350 INR for 100 gms

Shelf Life : 6 Months

Ingredients: 

Mygirlypedia.com

Whole ingredient list is displayed. There are couple of chemicals in it but I have found out that these are used in skin care products and they are safe to be used. 

Packing:

It comes in a glass jar packing. Transparent packing makes it easier to keep an eye on the product inside the jar. 

All the details are printed on the sticker. 

Screw lid is convenient to use. 

Mygirlypedia.com

Color:

It looks like fire. Isn’t it?

Mygirlypedia.com

Fragrance: 

Fresh fragrance with aqua based note. Not at all strong. 

Consistency: 

Non sticky, non greasy formula. 

My experience:

I used it directly on my hair and face. Application is easy. It is not at all messy. Once applied, doesn’t feel heavy. Washing it off was also easy. I didn’t have to wash it multiple times to clean it fully. One wash was enough. That’s something cool especially if you have long hair. Post using it, it made my hair super soft and silky. Best thing is it reduces scalp’s oiliness. 

For skin, it moisturised my skin. Did not cause any breakouts.

Mygirlypedia.com

Pros:

  1. Eco friendly packing.
  2. Non greasy formula.
  3. Doesn’t feel heavy.
  4. Ingredient list is safe.
  5. Makes hair soft and silky.
  6. Reduces scalp oiliness. 
  7. Moisturises skin.

Cons:

  1. Jar packing is not hygienic. Since it is a DIY product, workaround would be to transfer the gel in the required quantity to other container/ plate to use.! 

Mygirlypedia Rating: 4.9/5  

Final Verdict: 

This jar is my third purchase. With the price, quantity and most importantly, the results are enough to buy this jar again and again.

Even though it is a chemical free product, I would suggest you to try out patch test first before using it on entire face. Because some are allergic to natural ingredients.

Puremie does not have website. They operate via Instagram DMs. Here is the link to their page, where you can checkout their products/ reviews/ shop. : https://instagram.com/puremieskincare?igshid=12yu7fuloen9a 

Chemical Free Shampoo Recipe By My Grandma

When it comes to hair care or skin care grandma’s recipes are the best. They never fail to amaze us every time we use them. Today I am going to share one of such wonderful hair care recipes from my dear grandma.

Finding a shampoo that works or us is as difficult as finding our soulmate. Even if we succeed in finding one, the fact remains the same that the shampoo does contain some chemicals that might harm our hair in the long run. So, what’s the solution then??

No wo’rries honey, I am going to share a solution. It is a DIY (Do It Yourself) Shampoo recipe. It has no chemicals only solutions for all your hair problems.!!

All you need are 3 ingredients. Lets make our shampoo. Ready?

1. Amla/Indian gooseberry:
Rich in vitamin C, amla is widely used in Ayurveda for hair & skincare. Major benefits being:
1. Reduces hair fall.
2. Makes hair strong.
3. Reduces dandruff.
4. Treats premature greying.
5. Promotes hair growth.
6. Treats scalp infections.

2. Reetha:
Ayurveda says dandruff is the real culprit when it comes to hair fall. Reetha helps in controlling hair fall by removing dandruff. It has antibacterial & anti-fungal properties which helps in fighting dandruff & hair fall. Reetha also adds moisture to scalp them making it feel healthy & supple.

3. Sheekakai:
This is a well known hair care product. Benefits of using Shekakai are:
1. Adds shine & softness to hair.
2. For stronger & thicker hair
3. Removes hair lice.
a. Removes dandruff
5. Heals infection.
6. Removes hair loss issue.
7. Nourishes hair follicles.
8. Avoids premature ageing.

How to make?
Its easy. Mix these ingredients in a bowl. Add water. Now boil the mixture.
Keep this mixture overnight so that the water gets time to absorb all the goodness of these  ingredients. Your shampoo is ready to be used the next day. Yeeaahh!!

PS: Filter out the ingredients before using for hassel free use of shampoo.

Mygirlypedia Note:

These are my learning through personal experience:
1. Make sure you never let the shampoo come in contact with your eyes. If you do, you will be left with red eyes because it burns (nothing severe but yes its’ better to avoid).

2. It leaves your hair soft. You don’t need to use conditioner post this shampoo. Thanks to Reetha and shikakai. So cool huun!

3. If you have oiled your hair, you will need more quantity of shampoo. This is the same case with any other hair cleaner!

4. If you have not filtered out the ingredients, there might be some ingredients stuck to your hair. No worries, once you are done washing, once the hair is dry, you can gently comb your hair to remove them.

Keep coming back to Mygirlypedia for such amazing recipes.

Homemade Mask To Treat Hair loss and Hair Thinning

Hair loss has been a common problem among a lot of people out there. Be it men or women, we all love our crown – Our hair. Hair loss is like a nightmare that haunts us..!

Today I am going to share a hair mask that you can try at home to reduce or to stop hair loss. This mask also helps in regrow the of hair..! Sounds like a saviour. Isn’t it?

Mask I am going to share is easy to make, its budget friendly (like most of the times), effective. Only downside is that it might make you cry, when it’s on your hair…!!

I am talking about onion juice.

What you need?

  • Onion
  • Grater

How to?

  • Peel off outer layer of onion.
  • Grate it.
  • Squeeze out onion juice.
  • Apply the juice using cotton ball.
  • Let it work for minimum 15 minutes.
  • Wash hair as usual.
  • You can mix it with other nourishing ingredients or oils too.

Why Onion Juice?

  • It helps hair growth.
  • Helps nourish hair follicles.
  • Minimise hair thinning and breakage.
  • Antioxidants help reverse premature graying and delay graying.
  • Keeps scalp healthy and free of infection.
  • When scalp is healthy, no dandruff.
  • Stimulates scalp and improves blood circulation.

Should I apply it only on scalp?

As it solves most of scalp issues, target area is scalp. No harm in using it along hair length. But best used on scalp.

Can I use it daily?

Yes you can. But, I personally don’t recommend it for daily usage. Let me tell you why. Onion juice has strong smell. You need to wash it thoroughly using shampoo. Using shampoo on hair, daily, is not something I recommend. So I personally like using the mask once or twice a week.

Can I leave it overnight?

Yes. But make sure you cover your hair properly or else you will end up making your bed and blankets smell of onion.

 

Best Lipsticks for Beginners…!!!

Hey,

Now that you have been following my world – Mygirlypedia, you know how much I love lipsticks. My collection of lipsticks which I had revealed some time back is the proof for it.

Many of you been asking which is one brand of lipstick that I would suggest for a beginner, who is taking baby steps into the magical world of makeup. When I say beginner, I mean to say the one who wants to apply lipsticks but not sure whether she will be able to carry it or not. Thus she is not willing to spend more on a lipstick which she might not use in long run.

So, only best and a budget friendly brand I can come up with is, Elle 18.

I have multiple lipsticks from this brand. Mostly reds, pinks and peach. I am gonna swatch them for you in this post. Check out why I love this brand so much.

Brand:

Elle 18

Range:

Color Pops

Between there are multiple ranges available in this brand’s lipsticks. There are matte and other finishing. But I love this range more.

What Product Claims:

Dual core lipstick format.

Extra moisturizing with cocoa butter and jojoba oil.

Creamy smooth and soft texture.

Vibrant Shades.

Rich color pay off.

Intense look.

Attractive pop Colors.

 

Shades Available:

There are 19 shades available. Yes nineteen varieties of colors to choose from. Wanna know the shades??? Check them out here.

Shade I own:

MYGIRLYPEDIA.COM

Pretty Peach (Shade number 43):

This is a light peach colored lipstick. Definitely my favorite among all other Elle 18 lipsticks I own. It looks so natural on lips, looks super feminine.

If you are hesitant  to try out reds or pinks, this is definitely the one for you. You will feel comfortable enough to carry this on daily basis to work place or to colleges as well.

Pinken (Shade Number 31):

This shade is a mixture of pink and red. If you love red lipsticks but not so confident enough, go for this one.

Rosy Blush (Shade Number 27):

This is a cherry red shade. Always dream of or at least thought of trying out a red shade on your lips??? Try this. You just have to spend 100 INR to fulfill that thought of yours.

Price:

100 INR for 4.3 ml. I told you it is budget friendly..!!!

Shelf Life:

30 Months

Packing:

It comes in a small and cute black lipstick bullet, with the brand name written in Pink. A cartoon sketch of a gothic look(at least I find her gothic) gal is something which we can’t miss. Cute because they are not like other lipstick bullets which are lean or narrow. These are a kind of chubby. Look at them.

They are tiny and perfect to carry around in your purse or hand bags. Thus they can be a good travel companion.

You might be thinking they all look alike in terms of packing. How to differentiate the shade without opening them??? Well, there is a sticker at the bottom with the shade name and number written on it. Which makes easy to pick the particular shade.

Texture:

These cuties are buttery soft. Glides really well.

Finish:

A smooth and shiny finish.

Fragrance:

They smell like bubble gums. Yes they do. haha

Are these Moisturizing???

Yesss. If you can see there are two layers. Outer colored layer and inner colorless layer which seems to be the cocoa butter and jojoba oil. Umm inner layer was colourless when they were new. Now they look like that of their outer shade, for obvious reasons.

Are they transfer proof???

Umm. No. They do transfer. But it will be mean if we start expecting so much by paying so less. I mean no matter what lipstick you choose, there is still chance that do transfer. These tiny little things are not any exception. Hence not a con for me.

Staying Power:

The shiny finish slowly fades as and when you eat or drink food. The tint still remains for good amount of 5 to 6 hours. Not bad huun.

Why These are Good???

  • Budget Friendly.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Shiny finish.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Smells good. haha
  • Good staying power, at least for the price we are paying.

What could have been better???

Transfer proof. But as I said not a con for me.

Mygirlypedia Rating: 5/5

I have also made a quick video for it.

So girlies, I hope now you know which brand to start with if you want to build a lipstick empire like me. haha.

Do try out and let me know your take on this.

Hope you found this useful for your haul.
