For Fairer Underarms, Should You invest In this Roll On Or Not?

Review Of Nivea Whitening With Licorice Extracts and Hazel

Review Of Nivea Whitening With Licorice Extracts With Hazel - For Fairer Underarms, Should You invest In this Roll On Or Not?

Review Of Nivea Whitening With Licorice Extracts With Hazel - For Fairer Underarms, Should You invest In this Roll On Or Not?

I am always in search of  roll-ons for two reasons - one, they jut stick to you throughout the day and two, they mostly claim not to make under arms dark. These two claims are enugh to sell me a roll-on. I have always been a fan of Nivea deodorants but Sure was my favourite in roll-ons because the fragrance was just perfect and it didn't make my under arms darker. But I invested in a Nivea roll-on in a hope that it will do wonders for my body odours and dark under arms, I kind of hoped that it will make my under arms lighter. Her, how it worked...

This roll on spreads in white color and becomes clear after few minutes (+1). It felt sticky when I applied that also diminished after a while(+1). The scent is subtle and sticks with you for lest than 10 hrs which is still good but not so good as Nivea deodorants(-1). I don't think it blocked my body odour for the entire day. Though it claims to be an antiperspirant, it didn't prevent my under arms from perspiring (-1) which is good because ideally, we should not use anti-perspirants.

But good thing is that it did not irritate my skin at all which is pretty normal in deodorants and anti-perspirants. It did not stain my clothes either. (+1)

Coming to the point why I bought this roll-on. As expected, it did not make my under arms lighter (-1) but it did not make it darker either (+1). So, I think it can be recommended to those who are looking for roll-ons that doesn't make their under arms darker.

Rating : 4/7

4/7 is still a pretty good rating, don't you guys think! Now you decide whether To Buy Or Not To Buy Nivea Whitening Roll-On with Licorice extracts and hazel.

5 Rules of Buyinag Anarkali Suits Online


❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Anarkali Suits are one of the most worn clothing item after sarees in Indian weddings. Isn't it crazy? But not surprising at all. In last couple of years, Anarkali suits have taken over the Indian weddings apart from other festivities in India and everybody loves wearing them.

What makes Anarkali so different?

Anarkalis are voluminous, look royal and are available in countless designs. They have the length to match the elegance of sarees, use of churidars and dupattas to match the comfort of salwaar-kameez, bouncy volume with deep design and embroidery to beat the competition it may have with modern choices too. Anarkali to me is like a meeting point of traditional India with modern India because of the use of traditional materials as well as modern hybrid materials in making these long suits with vibrancy and essence with modern approach.

This year has been full of weddings for me and one thing was staple in the list of clothes-to-wear i.e. Anarkali. I had enough time to get an Anarkali stitched but what if I didn't have time? Then my first choice was and will always be buying online.


But Buying Anarkali Suits Online For The First Time!

Buying Aanrkali Suits online is not an easy task because there are too many options to choose from that can be confusing. So, there are a few things that I will suggest we know before we take the plunge of buying it online.

Rule #1 Material Choices

I would always want to keep the material traditional for Anarkali when buying online. My choices will be georgette, cotton, silk, Banarsi etc. for an unstated elegance. These material are heartbeat of Indian ethnic wears, you can never go wrong with these and they look good on everybody.

 Rule # 2 Highlights of Anarkali

For me, Anarkalis have three sections and only one of those should be the highlight of whole design and they are 1. bodice/blouse 2. length 3. Dupatta . Embroidery is an inseparable part of Anarkalis and it makes Anarkali stand out of the crowd after volume in length. Go for a heavy embroidered length and understated elegant bodice or go for a plain suit with heavily embroidered dupatta. Everything heavy and you'd look too occupied.

Rule # 3 Colorpalette Of Anarkali

Let's say all colors look good on you so it's a no brainer that Anarkali in any color would look good. But in my opinion, it is not the case. I have seen many ladies from celebrities to real life who looked like they were not dressed right because the color palette did not work for them. It happens because Anarkali has too many things going on in it from length to dupatta, embroidery to other works like gota-patti. So always stick to a monochromatic color, all pastels, egg yolk yellow, coral red, coffee brown and berry shades. that means bright red, orange and blue should not be the base of your choice first. If you want these colors, let them be subtle in form of something light and elegant like threads used to make the neckline and sleeves.

Rule # 4 Length Of Anarkali

This one is going to be quick. Currently we have three types of lengths in Aanrkali suits.

1. Regular Length that ends right before the ankle and sometimes ends at mid-way on calves.

2. Floor-Length, you just don't get to show off your churidars. Nobody will see and it would look like you are walking in a Indian traditional chic gown.

3. High-Low Hemline - This one is the latest and should be chosen carefully as your churidar plays an important role.

Which length you should choose? If you are short, go for regular or high-low. If tall, choose any one of all three.

Rule # 5 Alaways buy from a trusted website

When I say that, I mean the shipping and delivery should be good and trustworthy because you might want your Anarkali to arrive on-time so you can wear it on-time. Call the customer care and ask away. Remember if website is genuine, it cares of its customers they will never every promise you of faster delivery. They would always tell you about their shipping and delivery policies. So what's the point? The point is that a trustworthy online shopping website will promise that it would not take longer than that from their side in shipping your purchases. Now a days websites send SMS with information on every step from shipping to delivery, tracking number and even courier company name.

These are 5 rules that I follow when it comes to buying Anarkali suits online.

Here is a list of websites to buy Indian, Ethnic Clothes and Accessories Online

Let me know if you have a disconnect with any rule or you want to add yours!!

Garnier's Nationwde Movement For Men 2014


❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤


Join Garnier Men India In The Nationwide Movement #SayNoToBars , #StupidThingsMenDo

Men don't wear sunscreen, would never touch a body wash and will stick to soaps. For him, night creams, under eye creams and lip balms are for women and only women look good using them. These are beliefs of most of the men around me. Thank God, I try to cover men's section on SSU, and that gives some kind of openness to my hubby, brother and any men who is close to me to believe that even they can use body-wash, they can have a skincare regimen and they are totally allowed to invest in skincare products and that these products are vita lelement of their regime. My brother just started believing that he is not supposed to use sisters' creams but there are products meant for him too. And this story would never be short if I started including every tiny bit of their beliefs in skincare, let's cut it here.

So for the sake of men in India, Garnier held this cool pledge to #SayNoToBars and to give them a little insight on #StupidThingsMenDo. For more details on this, you can read what Garnier has to say about it below.

Garnier Man Newest Launch and a Pledge #SayNoToBars


Men will be men! No matter what the situation, this statement will always hold true for them.

Take a minute to think this through...
How many men have you seen who pay attention to grooming? Well, we know your answer - barely any, right! That's true for most men. As the brand that cares about men and their grooming, Garnier Men India is out on a mission to change this.

We believe, behind every successful man there is a woman - who helps him with what to wear and what to do. So, what could be a better way to make men change their attitude towards grooming than get the women to lead this initiative with us?

This is why, Garnier Men has partnered with over 30 bloggers who are recognised as experts in beauty and care, in this Nationwide Movement where we ask men to
Say No To Bars. Yes, we mean - Say No To ‘Soap’ Bars. Wondering why? Here you go -
1. Soap bars are unhygienic as the same bar is used for multiple purposes. Instead, why not switch to a face wash which is for a defined purpose?

2. Soap bars are history now! Modern men prefer to use face wash that is customised to suit their skin's needs.  So, why not be the man of today who loves modern facilities?

3. Soap bars are inconvenient and not practical to use at all. Then, why not be smart and switch to a face wash which is easy to carry?

Keeping these advantages of face wash in mind, we ask men to take a pledge against the use of soap bars. We instead recommend men to use the Garnier Men Oil Clear Face Wash for a deep cleansing action which removes excess oil without drying your skin while ensuring a day-long oil-free feel.
To make sure, they get the message clearly, here's a fun song which tells you why it's time to #SayNoToBars and #SayYesToOilClear

Garnier Men : Stupid Things Men Do

So go ahead, bring a change in the men you care about!

Things To Know About Zegna Autumn Winter 2014 Collection


❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Ermenegildo Zegna Couture  Autumn Winter 2014


The Ermenegildo Zegna Couture FW14 aesthetic and vision looks at the origins to define the future; an innovative identity and perspective to contextualize fashion through clothes that ooze luxury in deep cosmic blues, ash grays, burgundy and underwood greens.

Pilati’s line-up looks to the market needs by building on the bond between the industry and the savoire-faire with a celebration of natural fibers that explore
and validate Zegna’s longstanding tradition, integrity, identity and technological character.

With an original and elegant hand, Pilati delineates an aesthetic that merges formalwear with sportswear with a contemporary undercurrent; dark tones with
light and airy ones; function and form; natural fibers with synthetic ones. Pilati elevates the notion of sportswear to new heights of elegance while the formalwear reveals layers of precious fabrics that define a modern silhouette.


- The Broken Suit, a masterful mix-and-match that veers from muted to bold. A new height of chic that mixes the three staple pieces of a suit, blazers, trousers and diagonally-cut vests – made from different fabrics in terms of weaves, textures and patterns in both tonal shades and degradé contrast. A strong example is represented by a glen plaid jacket over a solid vest over gingham trousers. A formal-meets-classic
aesthetic infused with personality and originality.

Zegna Autumn Winter 2014-15 Material and Print Highlights

1. Wool Priority

Wool has always been one of the core fibers for Ermenegildo Zegna sartorial offer. For this season, a wide range of Trofeo Light and New High Performance All Season combined with the evergreen Trofeo 600 and MilMil, characterize suits, jackets and trousers. Trofeo Light is a new exclusive type of Trofeo with extralight trans-seasonal weight. New High Performance All Season exploits the traditional High Performance quality applied to a twill weave: the resulting fabric preserves the
extraordinary resilience which characterizes HP on a heavier weight and more wintery look.

2. Winter Silk

The Silk Project remains a core element in the Ermenegildo Zegna winter fabric proposal. Thanks to the refined production processes, all the qualities of this noble fiber, like brightness, soft touch and a peculiar resistance, are strongly enhanced. Thanks to its technical features and look, Winter Silk has been used both on technical outerwear and on exclusive jackets.

3. Cashco Light

Cashco Light consists in a further upgrade of another pillar of the EZ Sartoria collection. It aims to offer the exclusive Cashco quality, well known blend of cotton and cashmere with a new exclusive design (2000 ribs). Cashco Light has been applied in suits, jackets and trousers, representing a strong offer in the FW14 Winter collection.

4. Tartan & Prints Mania

Tartan pattern and special graphic prints are confirmed as two of the main trends of the season, especially in Upper Casual jackets, trousers and shirts. Micro tartan, micro geometric patterns, floral and vegetal figurative designs are some of the key proposals.

5. Hybrid Products

A strong trend for Fall Winter 2014 season is the hybridization of a wide range of products cross brands: items that due to their construction and blending of materials deliver a new “fashion identity”. Knitwear cardigan mixed with detachable inner vest; shearling outerwear with knitted sleeves; outer-jackets with microfiber frontal panel are some of the Upper Casual hybrid products.

6. Elements Light

Upper Casual for the Fall Winter 2014 outerwear collection maintains not only the luxurious attitude of its garments but also the research and development of special treatments of luxurious fabrics. Elements Light is the evolution of Elements fabric treatment. This membrane, that has been applied to Trofeo wool or carded silk, allows to keep the same Elements’ strong features - breathability and water column resistance – with an extremely lighter weight and a softer hand.
