Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub Review

Face scrubs are a must especially during summers. Due to the extensive rise in the temperature the  skin tends to sweat a lot, blocking pores and giving way to pimples and other skin allergies. This is when a good Face scrub comes in handy. They also get rid of dead skin giving your face a rejuvenating and refreshed feel.  

I made a short trip to my Aunt's place in Hyderabad last week and as I write this review, I can't help but smile at the thought of all the wonderful memories this trip gave me. Travelling is a lesson in itself and the only thing I regretted about this trip was not carrying my Himalaya Herbals walnut facial scrub with me. I developed this strange allergy where my skin gets itchy and red at the slightest of irritations which could have been avoided if I carried this scrub with me.

Today I'll be sharing my experience with the Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut scrub:


One word: Effective!

Packaging: The product comes in a white tube packaging with a tight green flip cap. The tube looks cute with the small orange details and is very travel friendly. The ingredients list, pricing and all other stuff is written on the back and front tube of the product.

Shelf Life: 3 years

Pricing: INR 70 for 50 ml

Fragrance: It smells like a walnut icecream with a medicinal and herbal hint to it. The fragrance is not overpowering.

Texture: The texture is dense and creamy which glides smoothly on a dampened face. 

How To Use: Apply in a circular motion on the face and neck. Rinse off with water.

My Experience with the Himalaya Herbals #GentleExfoliatingWalnutScrub:

I picked up this product because of its 'Herbal' tag. My skin is super sensitive and very moody which gets irritated at the slightest exposure to chemicals. Being a blogger and social media evangelist I have a tight schedule which hardly allows me to take care of my skin. My skin is young and very sensitive, that's the reason I am fond of herbal brands like Himalaya.  I have used face scrubs from a lot of brands before but was not completely satisfied with  them. I wanted something which would not irritate my skin and effectively scrub off the dead cells plus moisturize it at the same time. This face scrub is all of it put together. The best part I love about it is that it leaves my skin glowing and smooth after every application. The glow doesn't last long but the fresh and smooth feeling is there for a whole day.
I was delighted that this scrub contains apple and wheat germ oil extracts too as those are very good for skin.  It's effective and true to its claim as it completely exfoliates the skin. The walnut granules present in this scrub effectively clean the pores. Just remember not to rub it very hardly as the walnut granules are quite prominent. I don't have any black heads but I did notice that all the tiny blemishes on my face slowly disappeared. It's value for money and a great product at this price.

Pros:
  • Formulated with Herbal ingredients
  • Moisturizing
  • Smoothens skin
  • Leaves a glow
  • Easily available 
  • Value for money
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Cleanses effectively
  • Does not irritate skin 
  • Does not leave the skin dry
  • Has goodness of walnut and apples
  • Packaging is travel friendly
  • Removes oil effectively
Cons:
  • Not Paraben free. 


What I love: The Himalaya Walnut face scrub can be used as a face wash too. It's a two in one face wash cum face scrub product which is a plus point when it comes to travel. 

Do I recommend it to to you all?:
Totally! It's one of the finest face scrubs out there which is both effective and friendly on the pocket. I love it for the glow smoothness it leaves on my skin.

Stilettomaniac Rating: 4.5/5

Save While You Shop With CouponZeta

For me, shopping is an art. It is something I insanely enjoy and do with a lot of passion. I don't remember the last day when I didn't shop for anything.. Yes, that's true. Online shopping has become my favourite hobby and I can't imagine my life without it.

I am a black belt bargainer who jumps like a kid at the mention of a 'sale' and becomes a shopper version of Ussain Bolt whenever there is a great discount.
The joy of getting a discount for something you want to buy is beyond compare. Online shopping has no option to bargain but there is something more exciting about it - the three magical words: 
  • Coupons, 
  • Deals &
  • Discounts
I am that typical shopaholic who likes to shop smart and save some bucks and buy more in that saved money. The words 'coupons', 'deals' and 'discounts' are music to my ears and peace for my soul.

I have tried many websites to hunt for deals and coupons in the past and saved a lot. But lately the coupons and deals on the websites I visited earlier are not so thrilling and I was annoyed when some of the coupons didn't work or expired before the said date. I was on the lookout for a new coupons and deals website which can offer me the latest and best coupons for different e-commerce websites. While on my hunt, I came across Couponzeta and have fallen in love with it.

  • They have the automatic direct feature which takes you to the given online shopping portal just by clicking on the coupon/deal.
  • The best deals for the day are showcased neatly on the homepage so that you don't miss out on any of them.
  • The website is aptly categorized which helps you browse through it and hunt for what you want with ease.
  • A brief description of the e-commerce websites along with stuff like return policy and shipping details is mentioned at the bottom of every online shopping portal's page. 
  • A pop up shows the hottest deal at the moment which should not be given a miss.
  • Verified and effective coupon codes/deals.

Train, travel, Travelogue, vacations

My Ideal Yatra ~ From Bangalore to Lucknow

What's your idea of a perfect vacation? For me, it's visiting my Homeland, a place where my loved ones live and a place which back then, I had dearly missed for three years.

It all started with a phone call. It was just-another day with just-another mad rush of life and juggling between work and home. I was engrossed in my laptop when the call came. My Mom picked up the phone and that's what marked the start of my beautiful and most memorable journey of life.

It was my Cousin's wedding and we had all been invited, actually, threatened by our Grandmother to visit her. After all, it had been three years since her grand children had been there and having missed her and the rest of my family, I knew how much this journey meant to all of us.

We decided we needed a real vacation and a break from the life in Bangalore so we planned our journey in such a way that we could visit and explore three places at a time. From Bangalore we would go to Hyderabad, from Hydereabad to Delhi and from Delhi to our home town - Lucknow.

My Dad suggested we check out the Flight Schedule and book tickets online. But I love travelling by Train so I insisted that we travel by the same. I booked a return ticket on Jet Airways for my Dad as he would be travelling to Lucknow just a few days before the wedding due to his Business engagements. For the rest of the family, I booked train tickets and all the bag packing and drama of shopping for our vacation started.

The journey started from the Bangalore Cantt. railway station where we were onboard the Bangalore Nanded express and heading straight to Hyderabad. What I enjoyed about this trip:
  • Window seat: They say the little things in life bring the most joy. I know no joy beyond a window seat. As we were 11 people travelling together, we had two whole booths of the train to ourselves.
  • The Food: I treated myself to mouth watering delicacies like Bisi Bele Bath, Idli Vada, Masala dosa and Puliyogare. If you are in South India and you haven't tasted any of these dishes, go feast on them like NOW!!
  • The games: No, not games like Candy crush or Temple Run. We were too afraid our batteries would run out to play digital games which gave us the opportunity to discover the hidden joy of playing a REAL game. We played Ludo, snake and ladder, chess, UNO cards etc, and I can't even put into words how much fun it was!

Our first stop was the Charminar, after which we visited the Taj Falaknuma Palace which was a vision in itself. After two more stops which included a fun park where we had the time of our lives, we headed to the railway station to continue our journey.

Delhi was an altogether different experience. We didn't get to visit the Taj Mahal due to our stringent schedule but it was an awesome experience nevertheless. By the time we reached our hometown, we were all exhausted but filled with an inner joy which brought broad smiles on our faces on the mention of 'How was your journey? Did you travel safe?' by my Grandma.

My journey didn't stop at Lucknow. After visiting Sidhauli and Sardanagar, I got to visit some breathtaking sites of unexplored India like Kheri. I still have that serene and peaceful image of the river side of Kheri imprinted in my head and I can't rest until I visit that place again and again and again..


The journey is always better than the destination ~ In my case, both the journey and the destination were equally awesome. Those fifteen days I spent travelling to Lucknow and exploring all my way there were the most memorable moments of my life and I couldn't have wished for a more perfect vacation!

Book Hotels Just for a Few Hours with Chaturmusafir #PR

I really like how technology is evolving these days. Everything is available at our fingertips and just a few clicks can fix any worry.

This good news is mostly for Roadies, Day trippers and basically for everyone who travels a lot and loves to go on vacations. With www.chaturmusafir.com website now you can for anything from 3 to 12 hours, and pay accordingly. Guest has to verify their account in advance before getting this facility.

And no, these aren’t just rest houses and lodges; they range, in fact, from budget to boutique and starred hotels..

In a nutshell: WHAT ARE MICRO-STAYS? 

  •  Disrupting the traditional 24-hour check-in-check-out cycle, micro-stays allow travellers to book hotel rooms for fewer hours and pay less too. 
  • While Japan’s ‘capsule hotels’ that offer tiny sleeping spaces to businessmen and its ‘love hotels’ for space-starved couples have been around for a while, micro-stays first become popular in Europe during the economic downturn of 2008, and then spread to the US and south-east Asia. 
  • Here, hotels ranging from budget to boutique and five-stars such as Courtyard by Marriott in Gurgaon and Sahara Star in Mumbai have begun to offer the option over the past three years. 
  • Websites and apps such as 6 Hourly, Stay Uncle, Chatur Musafir and HotelsAroundYou have also joined the game, acting as aggregators and tying up with hotels to offer packages in cities across the country. 
  • Options range from 3 to 12 hours, although many aggregators refuse to entertain unmarried couples.

The catch: Chatur Musafir allows guests to book hotel rooms in packs of 3, 6 and 12 hours. In 19 months, the website has seen 14,000 micro-stay bookings at 2-, 3- and 4-star hotels across 20 cities,  including metros like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, smaller cities like Jaipur, Kochi and Amritsar and pilgrim towns like Shirdi & Katra.

The story behind Chaturmusafir:
Two years ago, ad executive Preeti Jain and her husband Manish, a businessman, were travelling from Coimbatore to Jodhpur by flight and then train, with a nine-hour gap in between.
“We needed a room for, say, six hours. Just to wash up and relax. But we still ended up paying the full day’s tariff,” says Preeti, 35 Co-Founder . “We decided to do something about that, and that’s how Chatur Musafir [Smart Traveller] came into being.” 

With services like these available, my love for travel is just growing! :) Kudos to Chaturmusafir!

Currently Loving ~ Crystal Embellished Watch

Some things are very close to your heart, so close that you don't want to use them as you are afraid you will lose them.. and that is going to hurt a lot! Same is the case with this beautiful watch which has a reserved place in my heart as it's a gift from my Dad! :)

My Dad loves to spoil me with gifts and this was from his recent visit abroad. I really love my father's choice. He has a knack of what I will like especially when it comes to handbags and jewelry. I haven't worn this watch yet because the chain strap is a bit big for me and I'll have to get it customized before I wear it.

Isn't it simply gorgeous! ^_^

Blueair ~ Get Your Firm's Air Quality Checked Free Of Cost!

Having worked in different places, I can easily say that the work atmosphere plays a vital role in business productivity. The quality of the air you work influences your whole working behavior and outcome.

Few years back, I had been to one of Allen Solly's exclusive store. It was nothing fancy but all of a sudden, one of their SA got up and started spraying the whole store with a citrus room freshener - My God!! I can't even explain the effect of it! It put me and every one present in the store in a dreamy trance. The mood automatically lifted and I found I was more positive about the dress I had liked and I was smiling the whole way back home, happy with my shopping bag at my side. I still feel the scent of that citrus room freshener and the effect it had on me.. somethings in life just get to you and leave you mesmerized every time you think about them! That day I learnt how important good air and a nice atmosphere was, especially for a working place.
A new study by a research team at the prestigious U.S. Harvard University found that subjects scored 60% higher results in cognitive tests in indoor environments with reduced levels of volatile organic chemicals, which are gases emitted from certain solids or liquids.  Organic chemicals are widely used as ingredients in thousands of household and other products – paints, varnishes and wax all contain organic solvents, as do many cleaning, disinfecting, cosmetic, degreasing and hobby products.

How do you know that your firm has a great productive atmosphere? Blueair is here to take care of that, all free of cost!
