L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

I have tried so many different hair products, just because I am always on a lookout for the perfect hair combination. I might never actually reach that point, why? because even if I get myself into a routine I would get bored of it and then would eventually get back on my search for another great combination for my hair!

It is a tedious job!

One of the hair products I cannot live without would be a kind of hair serum. It is a must for my hair.
I have loved using hair serums ever since I can imagine. I feel like they give your hair that extra push to get them looking amazing and manageable. My all time favourite is the Moroccan Oil serum. But it's a chore to get it here in India. Infact, I got this L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil while I was in Australia, but you can get it from here in India. I have the flower oil version of it. I feel happy knowing that I can atleast get it online.

I absolutely love the way it makes my hair feel which is just so nice. Also, it smells so divine! I use it sometimes before shampoo as a mask and sometimes I use it after shampoo as a detangler. It works wonders both ways and doesn't make my greasy or feel heavy like some serums do. At the back it says that it can be used as heat protectant as well but I wouldn't be so sure. I tried it before ironing and it didn't turn out so well. Using it as a detangler is my most favourite way to use it, just because I feel that it gives me the best result.

It consists 100 ml which would last you atleast half a year, which is a pretty good deal for such a good quality product.

I would definitely buy this one again.

Until next time.

Products I loved this month - August 2014

No matter how hard I try I always end up writing my favourites post mid monthly! I will try to get this month's favourites up in the start of next month I promise!

For this month's favourites I have a mixture of high end and drugstore products. I have always believed that if you can get a product for a quarter of a price which is quite similar to the really expensive one, why the hell not!? But, at the same time I don't mind spending my money on really good quality products which last for ages and are worth spending the moolah!

The products I have loved this month are:

L'oreal Elvive Extraoridnary Oil
I love this product because you can use it in so many ways and it can still give you the best results. I have used it as an after wash serum and also a before wash mask. It works wonders both ways.

Clinique Lipstick in shade OA
I have been using this lipstick religiously in the past month. It is a kind of Orangy lipstick with a hint of pink. I am just so bad at describing shades. I have been wearing it with whites, blacks and even pinks. Looks good each time. It does not dry my lips at all and is actually quite moisturizing as well as glossy too.

Toni & Guy Shampoo for Advanced Detox
For some reason I thought clarifying shampoos were kind of a gimmick as all shampoos are meant to clean your hair, right? But as soon as I tried this on my hair, they felt light and breathable instantly. It just takes all the gunk out of your hair. I would highly recommend this. And yes they are called clarifying shampoos for a reason!

Moschino Pink Bouquet
This perfume I am so in love with! It literally smells like summer in a bottle and yes I know it's almost winter here but hey I like summer more! It smells fruity and flowery all at the same time. Love it!

Wella Professionals ENRICH for Normal/Thick hair
I actually bought this one accidentally, I wanted to buy a mask but ended up getting a deep conditioner. As they say, it's all in the stars ;) Dramatic much!? Coming to the product, I have a love hate relationship with it and I think it got to do with the amount I use, because sometimes it makes my hair feel so smooth and the other times it just feels greasy. But it definitely a good conditioner. I use it after the Toni & Guy Shampoo for Advanced Detox.

That's it for this months favourites!

Until next time,
Sharmi Shah

First of all I would like to thank Sameera and Adi of for tagging me in this wonderful tag.

Things have always happened to me out of curiosity. More than half of the things I do in life is out of eagerness, that how will it turn out for me and what really is the hype all about. Blogging happened to me the same way. I was always a lover of new things (who isn't), but I was literally obsessed with new products from a very young age, but I never knew that my fascination with beauty and makeup would turn into a passion. A friend of mine asked me to check out the beauty videos on YouTube, I did and I became obsessed with it. Then one thing led to another and I eventually found my calling in the blogging world.

I love to write my blog because this is my happy place and I love sharing the things that I bought on a recent trip and trying new products every month. This is MY space where I can be completely honest about my experiences.

I definitely want to make my blog known to the world but it's not a monetary agenda behind writing this blog. I write it because it's my passion and I enjoy it. Shopping for new things, trying them and then reviewing them is a process that makes me delighted. This is also a place where I get to be so much more confident about what I do.

For the future, I want to introduce a fashion segment to my blog and it will be up on my 21st birthday which is about six months from now. I also have tons of reviews and collaborations lined up for you guys. So stay tuned for them.

Until next time.
