- I always make sure I use any product for minimum of 4 weeks before I review it. It gives me time to see if the product is actually making any difference and also to see if I get any reaction from the product and also judge the product better.
- I try to go for natural or organic products but I don’t mind something which comes my way and catches my eye.
- I always try to recommend a tried and tested product only.
- When I am talking about a product, I look for the basic functionality first.
- When I am talking about face wash, I never in general expect the face wash to be able to remove makeup. Many don’t and very few do it properly. Always go for a makeup remover to even remove the sunscreen.
- When I am talking about scrubs, I expect them to do nothing except exfoliate. I don’t expect it to make my skin glowing or bright or fair. I just expect it to remove my skin’s dead cells without causing my skin any harm.
- A face pack should obviously be able to stand on all its claims and more, if possible.
- Similarly, a foundation or sunscreen are judged by ingredients and their stay-time. Yes, I do tend to use them for a month too. Also, I do judge many products by the ease of usage and application.
- All the accessories like hair comb, dry brush or body shop gloves are reviewed after a really prolonged usage, sometimes going up to 6 months.
- My reviews are always honest and true as per my experience and that’s something which I don’t like to assert in every post. I expect my readers to assume that implicitly [Yes, I do expect my reader’s to respect me, sorry for the high-handed way but I do hope I deserve your trust :)].
- I do make a disclaimer if the product has been sent by the brand.
- Ingredients list is always in consideration but sometimes I try to skip it in some unavoidable circumstances like I am not able to take a pic of the list (which is happening as of now as my camera ditched me). Yes, I am too lazy to put it down in writing. But, I always mention the important, arguable, controversial or any such notice-worthy ingredient in the list.
- I have not done any sponsored reviews till date. If I do them in future (Read: the monetary compensation is too tempting), I shall make a disclaimer of the fact and would be honest as always.
- One more point – yes, I do have second thoughts about a product after I have used the entire bottle. It has happened once till now (its tending to the negative). So, I guess, I should simply write an updated review on the product. What do you say?
It makes me feel incomplete if I miss even a day of post. It has become such an incomprehensible part of life now 🙂 And, I always like the mails and comments pouring in saying this helps them and that was amazing.
Getting a job.

And, btw, two gals who read my blog regularly are getting married in April and June respectively so I wish them all the best for their new life and they have requested a bridal skin care routine. So, you can expect such posts in a few days. And, on this note, I will say ‘Sayonara’ 🙂
Turn the pages and enter the weird and wonderful urban world the way these writers see it, keeping aside all preconceived notions, clichés, and any emotional baggage you may have, since you’ll be having enough of theirs to carry on your shoulders.
Another story involves a victim of domestic violence, Chamundi, and her struggle to ‘Liberation’. ‘Replay’ brings the dilemma of Lata as to forgive her estranged husband’s perfidy or to begin a new life with him again. This dilemma gets solved by a beggar in the local train by which she travels everyday. You will find Abhay and Aruna start a new life owing to their inability to break each other’s heart in ‘Heartbreakers’. A beautiful story of friendship turning into lifelong love is portrayed in ‘Apple Pies and a Grey Sweater’.
