Livon Hair Serum Review

16 Nov

Hello everyone,

Winters are here and so are our hair woes. I usually love winters but skin starts getting dry and hair needs pampering all the time too. So today I will be talking about this product which I have been using daily since weeks. Of course we all have used this product someday, so I am here to share my review on this. I will be reviewing Livon Hair Serum.

Now we all have seen the Livon Ads on television or heard about it from friends or family. I always had the need to apply hair serums because of two reasons mainly which are dry hair and shine. So I started using this product weeks back and lets see how well did I like it.

About Livon Hair Serum:-

New Livon Serum is a hair essential for damage protection. It controls frizz, eases out tangles and reduces breakage to give you silky, shiny hair. Unlike the earlier Livon Silky Potion, New Livon Serum is designed to be so lightweight that you don’t feel it at all once applied. It has a mild fragrance which is inspired by fine fragrances.

Key Benefits

Damage Protection

Controls frizz

Eases out tangle

Reduces breakage

Great Hair Texture:

Makes hair silk and shiny

Ingredients:

Vitamin E which nourishes hair and Mild Fragrance inspired by fine fragrances

My Review on Livon Hair Serum:

My hair tends to be dry in winters and oily in summers. The packaging is super cute. It comes in a transparent bottle with a pink flip cap. It is travel friendly and can be carried in the handbag easily. I like the transparent packaging as it is easy to keep a track on how much serum is remaining.

This serum is transparent and has a bit of thick consistency. You do not need a lot of product at all , just a bit according to your hair length and you good to go. Applying more of it might make your hair look a bit limp. I apply this on damp hair and then use a hair brush.

IMG_9069.jpg

Now coming to the claims it makes, Yes it entangles my hair nicely ,gives the shine to them and makes it manageable. It controls frizz to an extent and so I like this product. This product is available online and in stores and is priced at Rs  115 for 50ml. It will take me 2 to 3 months to finish this serum as I don’t need a lot of quantity of it.

Livon Hair Serum is a good product and can be used whenever you plan to wash your hair and your hair will be good to go.

Let me know if you have used it before and how was ur experience with it??

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

My Review on  The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash:

To start with The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash comes in a light green transparent bottle which is super handy and travel friendly. As it is transparent , you can actually check how much product remains inside it.

It is a super cute bottle which can be stored anywhere you like.  Now as soon as you will open the cap, it smells so awesome, like a fragrance which is so refreshing and will rest your senses. The texture of this the body wash is liquid and transparent in colour.

I like the effect it creates after applying it on my skin. It lathers really well. It creates a spa kind of environment and is apt for those hectic days of your life. This can be used on a regular basis and is not overpriced . In fact I got this from their online store with a 20% percent discount on it. So you can keep on checking their online store for great deals.

I usually use this body wash and their body lotion together. The body wash does make my skin softer and better. It is my favourite skincare essential at the moment.

In all, you can try this body wash and it does work great. I will repurchase this once it is over and would like to try their scrub too.

Stay Fit with these Fitness Apps

Stay Fit with these Fitness Apps

Being fit seems to be the priority of every individual in today’s world. We go to gym for a workout , walk about an hour daily and eat healthy.. There’s so much to do for all the fitness freaks. But what about the days you cannot go for a workout or have no time for it or too lazy to do it basically. That’s when technology plays a role. Today I will be listing down my personal favourite fitness apps for you which can be used anywhere and at anytime. These apps can be downloaded on your Smartphone and can be easily used.

You can read my previous post on 5 Books for Weight Loss which may change your perspective here

1) Pedometer

No time for those tedious workouts?? Prefer a walk instead, then this ones for you. This app is my go to app as I use it daily. You can count your steps and monitor your calories burned and the distance covered on this app.You can pause it any point of time and resume it again. It also has basic tabs for resetting the count whenever you want. Totally handy and easy to use…

You can download it on Google Play Store here and on ITunes store here .

2) My Calorie Counter

 

Interesting name?? Isn’t it.. I am a complete foodie and the word calorie is something I never cared about until I really wanted to lose weight. Keeping a track of eating within 1200 calories is difficult. So My Calorie Counter helps me in tracking the calorie count. Initially when you install this app from Google Play store, you have to sign up with some basic details. After logging in, they ask for your basic goal , I wanted to lose weight. It is a very simple and basic app but remembering and updating what I ate the entire day is a bit difficult . So I keep on updating it meal wise. The best part is they give you personalized plan of calorie intake according to your height and weight. So go ahead and install this.. Its a great app..

You can download it on Google Play Store here and on ITunes Store here.

3) FitbitScreenshot_2016-03-17-20-31-00-1
Fitbit is an app which can be used with Fitbit Surge, Charge HR, Charge, Flex, One or Zip tracker with your Android device. You can connect the app with these and track daily goals , exercise regime, manage calories. The best part to stay motivated is to compete with your friends and this app allows you to do that. So its fun using this app always.

You can download it on Google Play Store here

4) Nike+ Running

The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm Review

IMG_8629 (1)

Hello everyone,
Its been a year now that I am using The Body Shop products. I love their entire range of skincare and body. They really smell good and are effective. My latest addition from The Body Shop is The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm.

My Review on The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm:-

IMG_8644 (1)

Coming to the review, first of all this stuff comes in a tub which is transparent so you can actually check the amount of product left in it. I wish it came with a small spatula so it was easy and hygenic to use it. When applied on lips, it moisturises and conditions them well. The lip balm is red in colour but when applied on lips , it just gives a slight red tint and makes the lips look glossy. One thing I really love about it is that it smells of strawberries. The smell is really refreshing. It stays on my lips for a really good time , but I have a habit of reapplying it in three to four hours. I feel its good for all the seasons, but we may need something better for winters.

Overall, I do recommend The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm. If you love their range of Strawberry, this is a must try then.

Enjoyy,
Sonal.
