Victoria's Secret So Sexy Dry shampoo

I'll be reviewing a dry shampoo today. A dry shampoo usually comes in a powder or spray form. It is used when one wants fresh and dry (non oily) hair without using water and traditional shampoo.

Victoria's Secret So Sexy Clean and Go dry shampoo claims to instantly absorb oil for a revived look.
  • Absorbs excess oil with Oat and Rice powders.
  • Removes product build up.

It is suitable for all hair types. To use, hold the can 10-12 inches from dry hair and spray, concentrating on oily areas. Let it dry. Brush out thoroughly.

Price : 14 USD for 110g

The first thing I noticed about this product is that it smells HEAVENLY. I mean, it has the most beautiful fragrance.
And yes, it does absorb excess oil. So it definitely performs its function.
However, using a dry shampoo will never give you the feeling of fresh, washed hair. It is not a substitute to washing your hair!
I use it mainly when I've flat ironed my hair and want to flaunt my super straight locks for more than 2 days.
Also, I found the price pretty reasonable. Unfortunately, this is not available in India. In fact, I don't think any of the dry shampoos are.

So would I repurchase? I dont think I would need to, given the quantity and how rarely I use it. But if I do need another dry shampoo, I would like to dry Batiste.

My Take, My Rating : 3.5/5

Tip of the Day

Frizzy hair?? Avoid using a towel to dry your hair. Use a cotton t-shirt instead! After washing your hair, squeeze out the excess water and gently pat your hair with a tee-shirt. This would eliminate frizz and leave your hair manageable!

L'Oreal Hip Metallic Shadow Duo- 106 Sculpted

I got this Eye shadow duo from L'oreal on a recent trip to New York. I had heard so much about the Hip eyeshadow duos and I just had to buy one. 
The shade I have is 106 Sculpted. One of the shades is dark purple and the other one is pinkish-mauvish and shimmery!

 My camera could not really pick up the swatch colors. The eyeshadows are much more pigmented. I especially love the pink shade. Its super pretty! These eyeshadows can be used wet or dry. NO CREASING WHATSOEVER!! Woohoo!
 I found the packaging really interesting. There is a seperate compartment for the applicator. However, the applicator is quite useless. :|

At 7$, the eyeshadow duo was a steal! I think the shades are universally flattering and look beautiful individually or together!
Unfortunately, these duos are not available in India. I wonder why. L'oreal has had a presence in India for so long and this product should definitely be launched here!

My Take, My Rating : 4/5 (Would have been a 5 if they were available locally)

Tip of the Day

Want to increase the staying power of your favorite perfume?? All you need to do is rub some Vaseline petroleum jelly on the points where you plan to spray your perfume, like your neck or your wrists. A bit of Vaseline can make the fragrance last much longer!
