Gillette Satin Care Shaving Gel Review

I have always had this strange fear of shaving. When I first shaved my legs and my hair regrew, I had really itchy legs. I thankfully got rid of that and explained everything I use to prevent that from happening in this video:

I recently picked up the gillette satin shaving gel for sensitive skin and gave it a go a couple of times and I thought I should definitely review this product and let you guys know about it. The satin care shaving gel comes in a sturdy spray can, with 195 grams of product in it. You pump the top of the can to dispense the product and a generous amount of the shaving gel comes out. You expect a creamy white foam, like other shaving gels in a can, but it's actually a thick blue/green gel. 

I like to dampen my legs or arms with hot water, usually while I am showering, before applying the thick blue gel, which turns into a thick, creamy foam instantly when I spread it into my wet arm or legs. I take two pumps of the shaving gel for each legs and arms and that's enough to cover them up entirely. The foam is very soft, smooth and silky. I love the texture of it, it's like the perfect whipped cream. 

The texture of the shaving gel is PERFECT for shaving. The razor glides in very smoothly, giving you a very neat shave and thus reduces the chances of razor burn. I like to use the Gillette Venus Razor to shave my arms and legs. Once I am done shaving, I just rinse all of it off of my legs and arms, and it rinses of really easily, leaving the skin very clean and soft.  

I have really sensitive legs and thats why I decided to pick this one up and oh boy am I impressed?! It is an excelent product. Not only is the texture amazingly soft, it leaves the legs feeling very moisturised. This is very, very important if you have sensitive legs. When you shave your legs, the skin is very fresh afterwards, since you're deeply exfoliating your legs while shaving, which is why it is important to use something hydrating/conditioning to shave with. I would highly recoomend this if you're struggling to find a good product to shave with, if you have dry/sensitive legs. I can't use conditioner because it makes my skin much more sensitive and itchy.

It is important to moisturise after shaving, and one of my favourite creams for that is the Palmer's Cocoa Butter, you can get this here:

The Gillette Satin Care Shaving gel is priced at ₹223 and you can buy it here:

The razor I used is the GilletteVenus Razor:

The Body Shop Drops of Light Review

I recently got to try The Body Shop's Drop of Light range, and I have been using it for three weeks now. The drops of light range has a 5‐in‐1 formula to improve healthy brightness, translucency, even tone, minimise the appearance of pores, while leaving skin feeling smooth and supple. This is for those beauties that need brightening, luminosity, and dark spot correction. The range is infused with Red Algae extract which helps in brightening the skin, and Vitamin C which is a potent antioxidant. This is suitable for sensitive skin types.

The range is on the expensive side, as with the rest of the body shop skin care range and the packaging of this range is sturdy and pretty to look at with the white and rose gold theme. The serum is in a glass bottle, though, so not practical for traveling. 

Here's my view on the range :

Drops of Light Pure Clarifying foam wash, INR 1,525 : I've been using this every day, as you can see it already has a dent in it. It is a thick cleanser that lathers up really well into a creamy foam and leaves your skin feeling extremely clean. It can be slightly stripping but leaves the skin nice and fresh. I take a coin size amount onto my hands and lather it up and rinse it well. I use this twice a day, after removing my makeup.

Drops of Light Brightening serum, INR 2,050 : The serum is one of my favorite products from the range. It is lightweight and sinks into the skin really fast. It doesn't leave a greasy layer either. Your skin feels refreshed and hydrated. I take 1-2 drops of the serum and press it all over my face before following to the next step.

Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening day cream, INR 2,450 : As I've mentioned on Snapchat before, that moisturizing is a must! The day cream is very moisturizing and the leaves the skin nice and plump. I like to use this before I apply my foundation and you might think that will end up feeling greasy, but when you're done massaging it in, my skin soaks it all up leaving it smooth and supple. My foundation goes on very nicely after this.

Talk to me in the comments down below if you've used this range, and which one is your favourite The body shop skin care range.

Garnier Ultra Blends Shampoo Review

Garnier Ultra Blends Shampoo Review

I've had the chance to attend the launch of the new Garnier Ultra Blends shampoos, and I documented my whole experience in a vlog. If you haven't watched that yet, I'd recommend that you watch that first and then jump into reading the review, here.

First things first, all of the shampoos smell amazing. They're all rich and lathers into a thick foam which you can rinse off very easily. The shampoos leave your hair feeling really soft and separated without leaving a residue since these are paraben free. Most of them are suited for various hair types and conditions, so there's one for all. The shampoos also leave you hair looking fuller, and tame the frizz to an extent.

The packaging of the shampoo is very eye catching as well. They all have a golden cap with a leaf carved into it, and a shape very reminiscent of the Garnier Ultra doux range. Each shampoo variant has the colour and pictures of their respective ingredients.

These shampoos are also very affordable and are available in three sizes.


Rs 55 for 75ml
Rs 120 for 175ml
Rs 230 for 340ml

This is specially blended to revive dry hair. Olive oil is therapeutic and nourishes dry hair to keep them soft and healthy. This is good if you have really dry ends and oily scalp too. Olive oil is very conditioning and this shampoo does that exactly.

Garnier Ultra Blends Soy and Almond milk Shampoo Review

Garnier Ultra Blends Soy Milk and Almonds Shampoo

The soy milk and almonds one is what I used first and I think this one is my favourite fragrance. I can keep sniffing this bottle for a long time, it is just so so good. This shampoo left my hair feeling extremely hydrated. It is rich in protein and is made for repairing damaged hair. So, if you're someone who has coloured their hair many times or use too many heat tools regularly, give this one a go. 

Garnier Ultra Blends henna and blackberry Shampoo Review

This is made to illuminate dull hair, it smells just like you've crushed berries in your hands. Henna is good for deep conditioning and bringing back life to dull hair and blackberry is rich with antioxidants and vitamin C. This shampoo lathers really well, and it also leaves your hair looking fuller. You should pick this up if you have oily to normal hair as it's the best to keep it clean and looking healthy.

This smells so fresh and is made for revitalising weak hair. It has lemon, eucalyptus, henna, aloe and green tea all together to make one potent mixture.  This is also great for oily to normal hair as it gives a nice body and bounce to the hair. 

Garnier Ultra Blends Royal Jelly and Lavender Shampoo Review
