If you are skin care fanatic, you would know how it is to have your shelves overflowing with products.

In fact, he went so far as to claim it does nothing, nothing at all, for the hair and is best avoided as not applying means you can use milder shampoos.

I did go for four to six months without oil and I would not say that my hair was … [Read more...] about Why Hair Oil is a Waste of Money?
Finding the right moisturizer for your skin is downright the toughest task I have come across. It is easy to find a cleanser (not that easy, I admit, but then t gets washed off in a minute) or serum or even facial oil for that matter. But, not the moisturizer because it is supposed to stay at least 6-8 good hours. So, whenever I try a new moisturizer I am not usually optimistic and it was in same frame of mind I started using Satliva red raspberry face cream. Over and above that this product … [Read more...] about Satliva Red Raspberry Face Cream
