Review: Bella Perfecta Ultra XXL Night Extra Soft Sanitary Napkins

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Today's review is about another Sanitary Napkin from Bella, actually another from their Perfecta Range. I have already reviewed "Perfecta Ultra L Silky Drai Wings Deo Fresh" pads and now we are moving towards "Night-time" special sanitary pads. These pads are extra soft, ultra large and specifically made for night for a clean, dry and leak proof experience. 

Bella has a really really vast variety of breathable sanitary napkins and I am so intrigued by their quality, variants and everything. I love almost all their products that I have tried till now but you never know what's coming next. Please keep on reading this review till the end to know whether this variant has lived up-to my expectations or not. These pads are also imported from Europe and are dermatologically tested and safe for use.

Review: SoulTree Ayurvedic Lipcare Colour Rich Lipstick | Copper Mine

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Today I am going to review Soultree Lipstick for you guys that I received in My Envy Box August 2017..  This lipstick comes in twenty four beautiful shades and I being a lipstick lover love them all. The wide range of shades are suitable for all skin tones and would specially flatter Indian skin tones. As I have mentioned a lot of times, I don't have a particular agenda for lipsticks because I love to play with all colors, textures and finish. At days, I would love getting extra glossy and some days are totally worth being mattified in my life. I do not judge a lipstick by what its finish is but how it looks, stays and shows off.

Review: Bella Regular Tampons

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Tampons as we all know are used to absorb menstrual flow just like pads.. They are a great way to have carefree-ness and extra security. They are the perfect answer for the freedom of movement of active, sporty, modern women and give them unlimited certainty. I have already reviewed a lot of products from Bella hygiene and will make sure to list them down below, so don't forget to check them out... Before using tampons, I had a lot of queries, confusion and was really unsure but once I switched to them than sanitary napkins, I felt so secure and unconcerned. I still use sanitary pads as well but I love using tampons on first and second day of my periods as it feels more clean and comfortable.

Review: Pee Safe Toilet Seat Sanitizer

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Hygiene, in particular feminine hygiene is an extremely important part of our lives. Not maintaining it due to lack of time, or being busy with work or due to lack of sanitation and cleanliness can be very harmful for the overall health of a women. It may lead to loss of sexual health, loss of energy to do work, lots of infection, fertility issues, sexually transmitted diseases and in some extreme cases, cancer as well. 

We all visit public places time to time and obviously feel hesitant, unsure and unsafe while touching things that are touched by thousands of people everyday. Be it the handle of a public transport or the door knob of washrooms, hotel bedding, faucets, public toilets, bench tops or even surfaces where you sit may be hazardous and full of germs. I think everybody, specifically Indians highly need to use a disinfectant which keeps them away from bacterial infections and help out atleast one person too. Remember, personal hygiene is the base of public hygiene..

Talking about me, I am extremely conscious about germs and cleanliness and always wondered if I could have a sanitizer not just meant for my hands but also for other things I come across. I always carried some extra tissues in my handbag so that I could touch faucets, switches or any other thing with its help and be a little bit on a safe and germ free side. I was extremely excited when I came to know about Pee Safe, a toilet seat sanitizer which is doing a really great job of promoting personal and public hygiene. I think this is a really good way to prevent a lot of diseases that are increasing rapidly these days due to hygiene issue. So without blabbering much, let me dive in to the review so that you guys can decide if this product is worth the hype or not.

DIY: Hair Oil for Overall Hair Health

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good...

It has been a long time that you guys are asking for my DIY and most of you wanted one for hair. I really wanted to share this DIY with you all but first I wanted to be hundred percent sure of its result and everything. Well after a really long wait, I am finally here to help you guys a little bit. From the past two months, I have been really busy with PR packages and their reviews which is one of the primary reasons I am not able to share anything else on this blog. Well I hope my reviews are helpful to you. Let me know if you want any other DIY or home remedy.. I will definitely skip a review to post that for you. Also, I don't want to fill this blog with a lot of DIYs and natural treatments that are not very effective, easy or just for the sake of it.

Our hair are the biggest jewelry we carry and totally deserve a lot of care and proper treatment to keep them happy and healthy. Choosing the right kind of oils and ingredients for your hair is very important to maintain them. Oiling should not be just done by applying a little oil on the scalp, you should make sure you massage it really well instead. Oil massage is very very beneficial in increasing the blood circulation in the scalp making the hair beautiful, strong and nourished. It is best to leave it overnight, but in case you cannot leave it for the entire night, you should atleast keep the oil in your hair atleast for 2 hours to make it work effectively for you. Remember, being consistent is the key to success for anything. You should atleast oil your hair once in a week and at most thrice.

Anyways, today I have brought a really easy DIY for you which is completely based on my knowledge of hair care essentials and certain trial and errors. Now that I am very sure of its result, I am sharing it with you all. Basically, I have made a hair oil using ingredients that work amazingly for my hair and give me a lot of benefits.. You can obviously increase or decrease the ingredients I am sharing with you in case it works wonders for you or is not suitable for your hair.. Without blabbering much, lets jump into the tutorial..

Review: Oriflame Feet Up Foot File

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Only a true beauty connoisseur can know the importance of beauty tools and equipment. From hair dryers to stylers, tweezers to razors, makeup brushes to beauty sponges and from nail file to a foot file, we girls cannot live without even a single one. Particularly talking about me, I cannot hop into the shower without a loofah, foot file, vaginal wash, hair clutch and much more, obviously ignoring water and shower gel. *Chuckles*

Review: Bella Cotton Pads

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

A cotton pad is an extremely versatile product and is something we girls cannot live without. Be it medical purpose, makeup or nail polish removal, toning the face or getting all the makeup away, these pads serve to be really purposeful to us. A lot of brands offer cotton pads because they are almost a necessity for everyone but some of them are either very expensive or not that gentle. Some of them actually make cotton pads using synthetic fibre such as nylon just because it is a cheaper alternative..

Review: Seer Secrets Silverated Lavender and Geranium Tranquility Facial Mist

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Facial Mists are one of the best ways to keep your skin happy, healthy, rejuvenated and refreshed. Honestly speaking, I never gave a facial mist or toner much importance but as time passed by, I understood the importance of facial toning and hydrating. These two things are extremely necessary to maintain a radiant and happy skin but I always considered them optional steps until I came to know what difference they make in improving your skin texture and overall look.

Review: Bella Feminine Hygiene Intimate Wipes

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Wet wipes are not just wipes, they are a health and hygiene conscious' best friend.. From being useful to serve as a cleanser for the sensitive skin of infants to a makeup junkie's facial cleaner, wet wipes have their roots everywhere. They are basically soaked with water, alcohol and other active ingredients for a specific intended use. Generally, you can get a lot of wet wipes in medical stores or pharmacy, local market and on various online shopping portals but there are very less options available specifically meant for the sensitive skin of a woman's intimate area and that too cruelty free.

Review: Bella Feminine Wash | Sensitive

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Today I am going to review another product by Bella Hygiene and this time its their Feminine Wash.. The brand has been generous enough to send me a whole bunch of some really amazing products and a lot of reviews are coming your way this month, the hint of which I gave in my Welcoming September post.. Anyways, this wash is imported from Europe.. It contains D-panthenol which has wound healing properties and works as anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation. It is also enriched with Allantoin which again is an anti-irritant and skin protectant. It also gives smoothness to the skin, promotes cell replication and the healing of wounds, burns and scars.

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

You guys already know how much I love lipsticks! (Who doesn't?) Today I am sharing my review about one of my early makeup purchases but with time, I totally forgot about. This morning, I was going through all my makeup stuff and realised I hadn't put my Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in a long time. Does it happen with you that you love a particular product but even then forget about it sometimes? Well, it happens with me..

Review: Bella Panty Soft Panty Liners

*This review is not sponsored and doesn't contain any affiliate link"

Hi Guys! I hope you are doing good..

Today I am going to talk about Bella Panty Liners and review them. As we all know, panty liners are designed for daily use, ideal to protect underwear against white discharges and perfect for light flow during first and last days of period. They can also be used alongside with tampons as additional protection in case of leakages. Many of us underestimate them and do not find them that useful but trust me if you find a good quality panty liner, you will not skip it whenever in need.

Review: Blue Heaven Soft Kajal Eye Liner

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

Today I am going to share my review about another Kajal (or Kohl) which is one of the most important part of Indian eye makeup. Although there are a lot of colors available in the Kajal world, today we are going to be talking about the regular black one. Our eyes are one of the most sensitive and gentle organs of our body and should be taken care of. We should not apply just every another or cheap product on our eyes that is available in the market. A lot of eye products, especially Kajals have high compositions of lead which is highly harmful to our eyes. So, it is really important to choose the right product and that is where reviews help you a lot. Now my opinion may not be same as yours because of our preferences and skin types but you should always read atleast three reviews before investing in a particular product.

Review: Ryaal Essential Oils | Orange and Onion

*This review is based upon my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. The review is not sponsored and does not contain any affiliate link*

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

Essential oils are highly concentrated liquid obtained from plants and are called so because they represent the essence of odour and flavour of the plant from which it is derived. From reliving cold and flu to relaxing and soothing the muscles, reducing wrinkles and fine lines to treating various skin problems, essential oils are a complete natural treatment in themselves. The benefits of essential oils are so numerous that it is an in-depth topic in itself which we will be discussing soon..

Welcoming September 2017

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

I cannot believe we are in September. This year has definitey been one of the best years of my life but one of the busiest and fastest as well. I hope it is being as good and polite to you as to me.

I hope August brought a lot of good news and opportunities for you and wish for even more success and happiness in this month and life ahead. For me, August was really hectic, productive and nice. I had a lot of brands collaboration last month, caught up with loads of pending product reviews that I received in my subscription boxes and few from my Oriflame haul.

I also started my youtube channel named "Hearty Diaries" last month and found video editing highly time consuming but fun. Make sure to subscribe to my channel and show me some love.



August also brought a lot of good news for me and my blog got nominated for the Leibster Awards which means a lot to me. This blog also crossed 25k+ pageviews last month. I have also nominated myself for The Indian Blogger Awards 2017.. I request you to please take a minute out of your valuable life to write a "testimonial" or "comment" for me using your Facebook account here as I really need it to win the awards..

I hope this month I have more goodness to receive and spread. This month you can expect all the reviews of the products I received in My Envy Box for the month of August 2017. I also have few collaboration blog posts in September along with a DIY that you guys miss so much and keep on asking me to do. I love reading your messages on Instagram and comments on my blog. I also have to catch up with a lot of work this month apart from this blog because I am a final year Graduation student and have a lot of assignments to do this month. This month is highly special for me because its my Mother's and my darling Nephews's birthday month..

As this blog's holy ritual, I am sharing the quote of the month with you guys to keep you motivated as well. Here we go..
"The greatest loss is the loss of Self Confidence."




I highly agree to whoever said these true words. You cannot do anything until and unless you have the courage to do so and motivate yourself to do it. Self Confidence is the first key to keep your self inspired and to succeed before anyone else inspires you. It is a positive belief that in the future we can generally accomplish what we wish to do..

The other quote my year planner has to inspire me with is "Our purpose of life is to be happy from the very core of our being. We simply despire contentment."

If you want to take care of your loved ones or your skin, remember, you cannot achieve it until and unless you are happy from inside. Never forget to smile because it is what matters the most...

So that's it for today guys... I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post. If yes, make sure to +1'd this post, share it and comment down below..

Is there anything thrilling or really excited that you have planned for this month? Well, even if you don't want to share it with me, I wish whatever you desire and plan, comes true super soon.

I hope you have an amazing month ahead...

Review: Iraa Instashield Anti-Photoageing Cream

*This review is based upon my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. The review is not sponsored and does not contain any affiliate link*

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

Due to increasing pollution in the environment, our skin tends to age faster than it should because of the damage going underneath. Photoageing is a serious problem and is caused by repeated exposure to the ultraviolet rays from the sun. A lot of you know that I am a skincare enthusiast and take my skin very seriously but hardly any one of you would know that I am photoallergic. I tend to get severe sunburns, itchiness, irritation, infections and tanning a lot faster than normal people. I completely left going in the sun after a terrible allergy and sun burn which left me a Vitamin D deficient for one and a half year. My face gets full of acne and there is a war of breakouts going on if I step in to the sun for more than twenty minutes. My skin is as sensitive as you can think of due to which I know the importance of a sunscreen or Photoageing cream way more than you.

Review: Anatomicals The Buff Stuff- "Citrus Body Scrub"

*This review is based upon my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. The review is not sponsored and does not contain any affiliate link*

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

As I always say, scrubbing is a very essential yet highly underestimated part of the skin care regime by most of the girls. It is an extremely important step of the entire cleansing routine because it removes the dead skin cells and cleans impurities deeply. Also, it is not a new practice and is being followed by women since the ancient time. I have already discussed the benefits of scrubbing our body here and here.. I am very particular about keeping my skin clean and do exfoliate my entire body at a regular interval of time. You should never skip a scrub even if you are not in the mood to spend your money. DIYs are always your saviors!

Review: Anatomicals Smoother Butts Love Coconuts - "Coconut and Mango Body Lotion"

*This review is based upon my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. The review is not sponsored and does not contain any affiliate link*

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

Be it dry skin or oily, every skin types needs to be moisturised to maintain its natural balance and keep it soft. When I did not know much about skin care, I always neglected a body lotion because I thought I had oily skin and didn't need it. The truth is if you provide your skin with enough oils and moisturization, it will not produce any excess and will stay balanced and calm. Moisturisng the skin every day by using a lotion can prevent oiliness that can ultimately prevent acne. 

There are thousands of products in the market today meant for various skin types and issues, it is just a matter of your knowledge and choice whether you buy the best product for your skin. Do not skip a body lotion/moisturiser but make sure you buy a water based product having a light texture and non greasy formula.

Review: Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair

*Not a sponsored post and there is no affiliate link given

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

No one of us wants to look old, right? Well I'll not say "we don't want to grow old" because I don't know about you, but atleast I want to. I want to see every phase of my life and live it fully with my loved ones.. Not being sentimental, let's see this from a skincare lover's point of view. Wrinkles, ageing and stuff like that seems like a horror to every single woman out there, right? Either you are stepping into your thirties where these factors may haunt you or you don't want to be in such a phase, youth serums come in handy. They are very helpful in instant smoothing and tightening of the skin along with reducing the wrinkles and fine lines. A youth serum acts as a barrier between our skin and the environment to protect it from the harmful UV rays, pollution, weather conditions and other age damaging factors. It also revitalizes, brightens, smoothes and improves the overall texture of our skin,.

Review: Inveda BB Cream | Matt Colour

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

As you guys know, I am more of a skincare person and I apply makeup occasionally. A lot of you wouldn't even believe that I didn't own a foundation till mid 2016. Ever since I entered the makeup world, Pond's BB cream had been my go to because it is tinted, gives me a little coverage, provides my skin with necessary hydration and covers my blemishes. It was my savior whenever I needed to look blemishes/scars free but the only issue I found in it was the fact that it was a bit too oily for oily skin people out there. I literally craved for a BB cream which gave me a fine amount of coverage without harming my skin and at the same time, left a matte finish.

Review: The Nature’s Co Vanilla - Vitamin E Face Cream

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

August's GlamEgo box has been extremely generous to its subscribers by giving them a face cream that is love at first sight, literally. Today I am going to review the Vanilla - Vitamin E Face Cream by The Nature’s Co which is made exclusively for GlamEgo Box.. A face cream boosts the skin's hydration, makes it nourished and is ideal for everyday application, especially for people who come from the dry skin family. Anyone there?

Review: Bio Bloom Hair Cleanser (Hibiscus, Amla & Bhrami)

{Disclaimer: This review is based upon my fine-thin, silky hair with an oily scalp}

Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing good.

Living in the hot and humid conditions of India, your hair need a lot of care and protection from the dirt, dust particles, bacteria, sun rays and tons of damage. Who wants to have damaged hair, right? Obviously no one.. But treating and caring the right way needs a bunch of amazing products in addition to the perfect hair care regime. The Indian climate and temperature is really cruel for the hair and is enough to make them look lifeless and damaged. Being a hair care enthusiast, I try so many DIYs, natural treatments and haircare products to keep my hair look healthy, shiny and styled.

Review: Neemli Naturals Activated Charcoal Face Mask

Hi Guys! I hope you're doing good..

Few days ago, when I received my GlamEgo box for August, I was extremely happy to get Activated Charcoal Mask in it. I was planning to buy a Charcoal Mask from around a month and I was so glad that I found it in my box.. A beautiful skin is not very easy to maintain and takes a lot of time and effort. Even the smallest mistakes can lead to a huge acne war and terror.. Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping us to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne due to which I love it so much.* It also helps pull the dirt out of the facial pores, making them less visible.. Activated charcoal has been traditionally used for a lot of purposes such as purifying water, cleaning teeth and making the skin bright and clear..

Review: Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream | Shade 403

Hi Guys! How are you all? I hope you're doing good.

Today I am going to share my review about Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream, shade 403 with you all. Incolor lip creams are actually a dupe of Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams and you can hardly tell the difference at first sight. Incolor lip creams have 19 shades in their range which is so good and versatile to choose from, numbering as 401, 402, 403, .... , 419! You can check the entire range of Incolor lip creams here.. 
Before moving on into the review, let me share my thoughts on lip creams. Lip creams are generally the liquid lipsticks with more creamy formulation to glide on in one smooth application with no need for a second coat. They have a light texture and are very comfortable to wear. Some of you would have already tried Incolor lip creams and some of you would have been thinking of trying them, so without blabbering much, let me just dive into the review to share my experience and thoughts to help you decide whether you want to spend your money on these or not.




Product Description, Claims, Ingredients: I feel really upset by the fact that no information about these lip creams have been published on the internet or on the lip cream by the brand.
Cost: Generally available round Rs. 200-Rs. 350 for 6 ml or 0.21 fl. oz.
I bought this for just Rs. 190 from a local store..

Shelf Life: 39 months



Packaging: This lip cream doesn't come in a cardboard box or a carton packaging, instead it is cling wrapped and sealed. It comes in a plastic, transparent, cuboidal tube which shows the exact color of the lipstick and has a plastic, matte-black, screw top lid. The packaging is classy, light weight, spill-proof, travel friendly and chic. The applicator wand is long, soft and thin at top which allows to draw precise outline on the lips.
Smell: Odorless

Texture and Consistency: The texture of this product is just same as liquid lipsticks, not very buttery or creamy unlike lip creams while the consistency is good enough for a smooth application.

Staying Power: 4-5 hours

Pigmentation: This lip cream is highly and gorgeously pigmented and the color pays off in a single swipe.
Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream | Swatch of a single swipe
My thoughts on Shade 403: Even though all colors available in this range are warm toned and suitable for Indian skin tone, shade 403 was literally love at first sight for me. It is a beautiful pink shade that is neither too light nor too dark.



My Experience: All the colors available in these lip creams range are so beautiful that it is literally a hard choice to choose between them. After much thinking, I finally bought shade 403 which is a gorgeous pink and also because I have a lot of Reds in my vanity. Even though the texture of this lip cream is not as creamy as I think it should be, it glides on to the lips easily and dries quickly giving a highly matte finish. The quick drying factor needs you to apply the lipstick really fast otherwise it'll go on crumbly and patchy. I love the fact that this lip cream is long-lasting and is highly pigmented. The first time I applied it was when I had to attend a buffet and it matched my dress beautifully. I always carry my compact and lipstick with me to events and parties just like everyone out there for touch ups.

While in the party, I was happy inside that this lipstick doesn't need any touch up, the pigmentation is still the same after two and a half hours, blah blah blah but I had an embarrassing time when my sister pointed out while having dinner that my lipstick was wearing off. I know the fact that liquid lipsticks require complete removal for a touch up otherwise they can look patchy and flaky, so I instantly reapplied it and was sorted. Overall it was a good experience except the wearing-off fact.
I also found that its overdrying after removing it up at the end of the day. I have tried it many times after that party, making sure I apply a lipbalm underneath but most of all, I try to skip it during buffets and places where I need to eat oily food and Indian buffets, you know! The maximum time it has stayed on my lips without eating or drinking has been four and a half hours and after that, it starts fading from the centre of the lips.

Thus, it is not ideal for attending dinner parties or places where you're supposed to eat because then it starts fading from the centre and looks really messy. It lasts only till the time you eat or drink anything. Like all other liquid lipsticks, you need to remove it fully for a touch up otherwise it goes on patchy. This is not really a lip cream according to me as the formulation is not creamy and buttery as meant to be.

Pros of Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream:
  • Beautiful shades range to choose from
  • Matte finish
  • Easy to use applicator, helps in precise application
  • Highly pigmented
  • Good staying power
  • Comfortable to wear and doesn't feel heavy 
  • Glides on smoothly on the lips
  • Doesn't feel sticky
  • Little amount of product required for a huge color pay-off
  • Travel friendly, classy, chic packaging
  • Spill proof
  • Long shelf life
  • Easily available in market or on online shopping portals
  • Affordable and cheap
  • Easy to remove unlike other liquid lipsticks



Cons of Incolor Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream:
  • No MRP, no ingredients list mentioned
  • Highly matte
  • Over drying
  • Shows fine lines
  • Starts fading and peeling off from the centre of the lips after eating or drinking
  • Not buildable as it looks really patchy on double coat

Will I repurchase it?
Yes. I don't mind its cons as I am so in love with its color and overall feel. I can manage all the issues ultimately and would to repurchase more and more shades.

Will I recommend it?
Yes. This lipstick is just so affordable and good that I recommend you to give it a try once. Make sure to follow my advice and you'll have a good experience with it hopefully.

Is it worth the money?
Yes. Such beautiful shades, comfortable to wear, amazing pigmentation, long staying power, chic and classy packaging.. I cannot ask for more in just Rs. 200.

My Ratings: 4/5

Final Verdict: I don't mind wearing such comfortable matte lipsticks again and again even though they get removed while eating. You can rock them in pictures and in small meetings. I love the pigmentation, the staying power and the overall finish. All the colors are beautiful and worth picking up.

My Advice: Make sure to prep your lips by exfoliating them and moisturizing them before applying this lip cream as it is highly matte and feels overdrying without a moisturiser or balm underneath. If you are wearing it in a bigger occasion, make sure to touch up in four hours by completely removing it.

So that's it for today guys! I hope you liked this post! Do let me know by commenting below. Don't forget to share this post and follow my blog..

This year India has marked 70 years of freedom and thanks to our Freedom Fighters. I wish I could thank our forefathers who have gien us a land of peace and happiness where we can sleep whole night without any fear. I wish this Independence I become more responsible towards India and do whatever I am capable of.. Lets pledge to work together to bring the change... I like millions of people cannot wait to see an India which is free of all evils, free from diseases, clean, healthy, sanitized, free from terrorism, violence, corruption and caste difference.. Ask to yourself if you have even done 70 good deeds for your nation? 




Well, I am not here for giving any speech or lecture, I am just sharing what I feel for my nation and as a tribute, I feel really happy to tell you guys that I have written a poem for India. This is my first ever poem and I know it isn't very good but you guys are my family and I am confident in sharing my first attempt with you all..
Different caste, color and creed,
I belong to the Indian breed.
 
Mountains, plateaus, plains and waterfall,
India in it has them all.
 
Multiple cultures, traditions and diversities,
Can never be found in other countries.
 
Indian heritage, art and architecture,
Cannot be better than any conjecture.
 
Our museums, artifacts, monuments and libraries,
Can compete with all contemporaries.
 
Our bravery, knowledge, love and wisdom,
Is a gift to us by fighters of freedom.
 
Our faith and serenity is worth an example,
The world cannot have it ample.
 
Smell our chhole, kulche and biryani,
You will forget the perfumes of Armani.
 
Step into our beauty and fashion,
In your life you'll have a new passion.
 
Work hard to make it clean,
You'll feel like a King or Queen.
 
This Independence day lets take an oath,
We'll do everything for our nation's growth.



So that's it for today guys.. That was my little effort and tribute to India.. I hope you all liked this post. Do let me know how was the poem.. All your comments mean so much to me...! Don't forget to share this post and follow my blog..

Happy Independence Day once again guys!

Hearty Diaries is Nominated for The Liebster Award | 100th Post

Hi Guys. I hope you all are good.

I am so excited to share a really good news with you all! I have been nominated for The Liebster Award. Few months ago, when I started my blogging journey, I never thought it would mean so much to me and it would get a lot of new friends, supporters and recognition to me. Trust me, I never thought I would ever get so much love as you guys give me. I have miles to go and have bigger and bigger goals and aims for this blog, but wherever I am today, is what I could expect the least and means a lot to me.




Also this is my hundredth post on this blog and trust me guys, I had been thinking and planning about it for so long. I really wanted this post to be special and something different and it was at the perfect time, that I was nominated for this award. There are a few blogger terms you don't know or know least when you're a beginner. To me such terms were The Liebster Award, Alexa Ranking, SEO, Trackback and so on. I researched about this award when I was around two months in this journey and thought I would need years to get to this place. I never thought you guys will love me so much and would think of me being worthy of this honour. To those, who still don't know about it, please keep on reading...

What is The Liebster Award?

This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend. It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people. It is said that the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. 

Other awards are a part of the whole “meme“. These include “One Lovely Blog Award”, the “Sunshine Blog Award” and the “Versatile Writer Award”.

This month, unlike the last month, I got the box quite early and I am so happy with it.. Although I knew My Envy Box is a really amazing box, I never thought I'd love it box so much.

My Envy Box | August 2017




Packaging of the Box: 

The box came in a white cardboard box having exactly the same size to keep the Envy Box safe and secure. Coming to the actual box, the quality is amazing. It is made up of good quality, thick cardboard, has a nice packaging, beautiful lavender colored detailing and the best of all, it has a magnetic lock which is really sturdy and enough to keep the box safe from mishandling. This time my box isn't very neatly made but I don't mind it. I love the overall service and quality; will fix it up with glue and reuse it

When I opened the box, there was a card at the top which says "August Beauty Box" and again has a lavender color detailing.
 It has the list of all the products inside along with individual cost and description..
 Have a closer look..
 There is one more card inside by the brand "Seer Secrets"..
 Have a closer look..

The box has the perfect size to hold the contents properly. It prevents the products from moving here and there and keeps them safe. The products are well arranged and wrapped in hay. I don't mind having hay, quilling paper or bubble wrap inside until and unless my products are safe.

Inside the box: 

This month the box has five products out of which three are full sized and two are sample sized products.
1. Soultree Lipstick (Full Sized)
Cost: Rs. 550 for 4.5 gm

Product Description: Enriched with organic sweet almond oil,wild honey and organic ghee, which makes it rich in moisture and good for your lips. Natural origin colours, organic sweet almond oil, wild honey and organic ghee (clarified butter) combine in this moisture rich lip wear to give your lips a vibrant dash of colour...

My thoughts: Since this is an ayurvedic lipcare product, is certified by Germany and is a vegetarian product, I am already in love with it. This lipstick has a gorgeous silver color and my shade is copper mine, no. 213. 

Unfortunately this lipstick broke as soon as I opened it for the first time.. I don't know what happened but it broke.. Anyways, this shade is really pretty and would look extremely pretty on my mum, so i'll give it to her.. The texture of this lipstick is creamy but it leaves a matte finish which I love..



2. Seer Secrets - Tranquility Facial Mist (Full Sized)
Cost: Rs. 297 for 100 ml

Product Description: Seer Secret's Silverated Lavender and Geranium Tranquility Facial Mist is a perfect step to add into your daily skin care regimen. This refreshing facial mist can also be used multiple times per day as a gentle skin refresher. It is made with 100% natural ingredients to give you the ultimate skin refreshing treatment. Embrace the best nourishing routine for natural beauty. Daily application will ensure exceptional results. A simple spray or two of the facial essence ensures that you provide your skin with the nutrients it needs.

My thoughts: The bottle is transparent, light weight and travel friendly. It smells exactly like lavender and feels really refreshing. I would love to spritz it all over my face because I love how beautiful the fragrance is.
 Have a closer look at the bottle..

3. Iraa - Eye Serum (Full Sized)
Cost: Rs. 490 for 20 gm

Product Description: Iraa Instarenew Multi Action Under Eye Cream is a night cream with unique blend of Exotic Algae, Grapeseed, Cucumber and Shea Butter. Enriched with Vitamin E and anti-ageing properties. This cream helps in reducing puffiness, fine lines, reduce wrinkles and dark circles. This fast absorbing, fragrance free formula is designed to soothe the delicate eye area leaving the skin moisturised and giving you a renewed, youthful look.

My thoughts: The July version of My Envy Box also had a sample by Iraa but this time, its a full sized product This tube is really slim and chic... By reading such a powerful description, I can't wait to try it out and see what it does.. I love the fact that it is meant for all skin types.
The cream is white in color and has a light consistency. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy at all..




4. Elixir Shop - Zaria Skin Brightening Serum (Sample Sized)
Cost: Rs. 550 for 5 ml sample and Rs. 1800 for 30 ml full sized product

Product Description: With Lavender and Rosemary blended in Elixir's signature formulation, Zaria goes deep into the inner layers of the skin and brings out a beautiful youthful radiance. It starts by lightening the dark spots and blemishes, and slowly evens out the skin tone. Zaria leaves the skin feeling healthy and glowing naturally, giving you the perfect "no-makeup" look. This is a must have serum to complement your daily beauty regime. Start by washing your face and then take 3-5 drops of Zaria and apply it all over your face and neck, avoiding the eyes. After applying the serum just wait 1 minute for it to absorb and then you can apply any other product.

My thoughts: Such an expensive product!! I hope it works for me.. I am actually most excited about using this one because I have got some really stubborn acne spots on my face after a breakout last month. I wish it does as it claims. This serum smells so strong, just like those joint pain oils which I don't like.. The bottle is made up of glass which is prone to breakage, so I'll have to take special care because I'm really good at dropping things.
 This serum doesn't look very greasy which is a good thing for people having oily skin like me.


5. Nyassa- Divine Lotus Body Lotion (Sample Sized)
Cost: Rs. 105 for 35 ml sample and Rs. 425 for 145 ml full sized product

Product Description: Nyassa's Divine Lotus Body Lotion contains Lotus Extracts and Wheatgerm Oil. Lotus Extract is an effective natural moisturizer and also acts as a toning agent making your skin taut and younger looking. High in Vitamin E and protein, Wheatgerm Oil helps promote new skin cell growth, making for younger looking skin. It leaves your skin feeling wonderfully soft, smooth and nourished.

My thoughts: This bottle is made up of plastic, is light weight and sturdy. I wish the packaging was better and had a pump or something of that sort. The lotion is white in color, smells nice and has a non greasy, light consistency..
 Have a closer look..

Overall experience:

I am really happy with this month's box and the overall quality, even more than last month. The brands are really luxurious and offer amazing care. I haven't tried even a single product out of it, so I am highly excited to try them soon. I'll try the products as soon as possible and will make sure to review each one of them. This time I am a little disappointed from the manufacturing point of view but I'll fix it!! Overall, I love this month's box!
