Street Wear Color Rich Nail Color- Fairytale Romance Review

Heya folks! How has 2015 been treating you? Well, for me a lot has been going on but don't worry I won't bore you with it here. I have something else for you, guess what?? A review of course. :D (okay, that wasn't funny, I know, just trying to be a little interactive here.) Today I'm reviewing Streewear Color Rich Nail Paint in the shade Fairytale Romance.

Details: Street wear revamped their color rich line this year and came up with a stylish range of cosmetics. The new range consists of lipsticks, lip glosses, nail enamels, foundation, compact, eye liner and kohl. This new collection comes in an intriguing pop art packaging, very chic and very girly. Nail enamels include a vast array of trendy shades, glamorous browns and mauve, stylish pops, pretty pinks, and playful reds. These are priced at Rs 60 for 5 ml.

My verdict:  The new Streetwear Color Rich range was a great budget discovery for me last year. I so love their nail colors. This shade called Fairytale Romance is one of my favorites. It is a neon pink shade that is utterly stylish and instantly perks up the hands. It comes in a tiny bottle with a thin good quality brush which isn't too hard to work with. The formula is not sheer but not too creamy either, it is just okay.  Two coats build up the actual color which easily lasts 3 days, and it does not chip. All Indian skin tones will find it flattering on their hands.

A very trendy shade, Fairytale Romance is a must have at just Rs 60 with no compromise on quality.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Review

Hello everyone! Today I'm reviewing a product that has proved to be a magical potion for my acne problem. It is The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, read on to find out how it worked for me.

Details: Targeted care for blemished skin. Can be used direct on skun or for facial steaming. 
  • Soothing
  • Has antibacterial properties
  • Does not dry out skin
Priced at Rs 695 for 10ml

My verdict: I got myself this oil back in the summers when I was experiencing some breakout problems. I had heard that tea tree oil is believed to have medicinal properties for soothing skin problems, acne problems majorly. After some online hunt I zeroed in on this one from TBS. Coming to the product, it comes in a dark green colored glass bottle with a twist open white cap. It is a transparent water like liquid with a strong smell. It has to be applied directly on the problem area with a cotton swab or finger tips on the very first sign of breakout. Only a drop or two is needed for one use and it can be applied two-three times a day. I could see the difference in the first couple of uses itself. I applied it on the areas of my face where the zits had started showing up. It did not let the zits develop further and dries them completely. It also stings a little on application but that is not a problem. Also it might not help on fully developed pimples but it does lighten the marks that they leave behind. Coming to the bad and not so impressive features now, the first is the quantity for the price, it is exorbitantly priced for a mere 10 ml. I don't think I'm buying it any soon again. Also it gets really hard to get the last bit of oil out of the bottle because of the stupid nozzle. 

Finally what I'd say is, this oil does help in soothing and drying out pimples and acne effectively. If price is not a problem you should definitely go for it.
