- For Normal & oily skin: Apply 15 minutes before bath.
- For Dry skin: Apply within 1 minute after bath when he skin is damp.
- For Extremely dry skin: Apply 15 Mins before bath and within 1 minute after bath.
The look: Transparent oil which solidifies like normal coconut oil in cold weather
The Smell: Much similar to coconut oil, but it is more pleasant unlike raw coconut oil
My Take: It is an intensive moisturizing oil and is ideal for dry skins. It can be used on face also, but I experienced breakouts on its use on my combination-oily skin, so I used it as a body oil after bath. The oil is nourishing and has a lightening effect on body marks, it did lighten few burn spots I had on my skin, which I got while cooking. Also, the skin feels ultra smooth throughout the day, the effect is not temporary and it is the best thing about this oil. I have used it on my 4 year old kid’s body also, and I am pretty happy with the results. It did not cause any adverse reactions on both of our skins.
A great body oil for dry skins and a good winter body oil that combats dry, rough skin issues effectively. I would advise to consult your doctor before using it on your kid’s body. My child is way past toddler-hood, so I felt I could use it on his skin :). I feel it much more effective than many highly priced products.
Price: INR 185 for 100ml

I am trying a Sunsilk shampoo after a long time actually and it makes me nostalgic of my childhood days, when we always had the black Sunsilk perched on our bathroom rack. I saw the bottle undergoing many changes, leaving me awestruck every time with its new form 🙂 . Recently, it was sent to me for review and I am more than happy to try it.
The Look : The shampoo has a runny consistency, and has a glistening shine to it and the conditioner is moderately thick in consistency. Both of them are pale powder green in color.
The Smell: Very fresh and energizing yet not over powering. I am loving it 🙂
Product Claims: It is claimed to have natural ingredients free of parabens, also infused with Ginseng Root extracts for added volume and hair growth. It is a co-creation of Sunsilk with Jamal Hammadi, who is a natural haircare expert.
My Take on the Shampoo: It lathers luxuriantly, unless you have hard water, which minimizes the lathering effect. The water in my area is soft and has very low mineral content due to which I experienced a great cleansing experience with it. One of my friends lives in a area, where the water is mostly hard due to the frequency of water tankers there, She also tried this shampoo and feels it did not lather as expected. After usage, the hair looks voluminous and bouncy, which is a great factor for people with thin hair, as it would definitely add to the volume. Overall a decent shampoo 🙂 . I cannot comment on whether it arrests hair fall or aides hair growth, as I have used it for a short period of time. I feel it would be a great shampoo for normal to oily hair as it cleans thorough and dry hair might feel drier after its usage.

My Take on the Conditioner: It is moderately thick in consistency and effectively de-tangles the hair. The hair becomes more manageable and tangle free after its usage. Overall a decent conditioner for normal to oily hair types. It may not be that hydrating on dry hair.
