Indian Products Haul - Shahnaz Husain, Habibs, VLCC, Lakme, Oriflame and more!

HELLO! I am back from my vacation in India! I spent most of my time with my family in India and cherished every moment there! During my stay I missed all of you, my sweet followers and the blogging world! Anyways now that I am back expect to see regular posts from me!

During my trip in India I bought some clothes, jewellery, cosmetics and beauty products! Today I am going to tell you all about some of the beauty products I bought in India.
Indian Products Haul - Shahnaz Husain, Habibs, VLCC, Lakme, Oriflame and more
I will start by talking about Habibs Aesthetics Hair Serum - My cousin sister who has used this product recommended it to me. During my stay in India my hair started to get frizzy and dry (must be the hard water) and I felt why not try the Habibs Hair Serum as its also recommended for treated hair. I used it for a week in India and found it really good for my hair as it made them smooth, shiny and manageable! It's a great product for controlling hair fizz. You must try this if you have rough and fizzy hair! It also has a great scent which I love!

Shahnaz Husain Sharose. This is basically a toner but normally I don't use toners in my skincare routine, the reason I got hooked to this toner is because it smells of roses and is enriched with dates. It gets a BIG thumbs up from me! It feels cool on my skin and also calms down my skin redness.

Shahnaz Husain Herbal Sunscreen Lotion - Really good stuff! Doesn't feel too sticky or oily and doesn't leave a whitish cast on the skin. It's waterproof and also works great as a moisturiser and make up base! It has got spf 20 which though not very high to battle the Indian summers but more than sufficient for UK climate.

Eyetex Dazller Lipgel
- I forgot to bring a lip balm alongwith me to my trip to India and bought this on reaching there. It comes in a small tube and is convenient and hygienic to use. Nothing great about it though.

VLCC Lip Shield
- I bought this lip balm in two different flavours, Cocoa Butter and Mint. I like the Mint flavour more than Cocoa Butter as it gives a tingling sensation on my lips which I love! This is not very moisturising and not convenient to use as they come in a tub (in which you need to dip your fingers into) and might not buy them again.

Blossom Kocchar Aroma Magic Almond Moisturising Lotion -
This is a nice product for dry and dehydrated skin, the almond oil in this thick lotion provides norishment to my skin and keeps it supple and looking healthy for the whole day. I am a sucker for natural skincare products and prefer 'safer' products with much lesser chemicals added in.
 

Himalaya and Lotus Herbal Kajals - I am a fan of Kajal and wear them a lot! Both of these products are soft, nicely pigmented and provide a nice soothing effect on the eyes. They come in a conical shape which means you don't need to sharpen them at all which is great!

Oriflame Voyage Voyage Monaco Chic!
- Gifted to me by my uncle and I love its floral scent, it smells so nice!It features essences of bergamot, jasmine, orange blossom and vanilla orchid. I carry it in my purse all the time and use it a lot! A young, sweet and girly EDT body spray for summers!

It seems lipstick fanatics can't get enough of lipsticks and this turned out to be true as I couldn't resist buying these lippies!Indian Products Haul - Shahnaz Husain, Habibs, VLCC, Lakme, Oriflame and more
L-R: Street Wear in shade Copperish, Lakme 9To5 in shade Plum Pop, Street Wear in shade Miss Maroon
Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in shade Plum Pop - I love this shade, it's unusual plus I didn't have this color in my make up kit so it had to be mine. Does this long-wearing lipstick ipstick live up to its claims? Not really!

Street Wear Lipsticks in
shades Copperish and Miss Maroon- I recon this is not an actively selling brand and I don't know if it's still being manufactured or not. These lipsticks are quite nice to apply and have a good pay off, though a tad bit on the drying side but the color stays on my lips for quite a long time so no regrets for adding these to my collection :)

So have any of you tried these products or planning to? Feel free to share your views and thoughts in here! By the way during my trip to India I did a photoshoot with my cousin (who is a professional photographer) and will be uploading them to my blog and sharing it with all of you very soon!
