Rose water for face : 6 different ways Rose water can be used

Makeup removers can be expensive and burn a hole in our pocket due to their pricey tags and if you are an ardent makeup lover you will need loads and loads of makeup remover solution to get away the waterproof makeup off from my face. Which is why a natural makeup remover that is inexpensive and effective will do wonders to your face. Mix rose water with either almond oil  coconut oil or jojoba oil and use it to remove your stubborn makeup with the help of a cotton swab! Eye makeup is the most problematic area when it comes to removing eye makeup as the area is sensitive and hence a natural makeup remover is best to gently remove all the grime and waterproof makeup from your eyes.!

Goodbye Tired Eyes:

If you are among those that have to work on computers and laptops for long hours, applying rose water all over your eyes soothes your tired and fatigued eyes. Those who get very little sleep can also use rose water to get relief from puffy eyelids. All you have to do is place cold rose water dipped cotton swabs over your eyelids for a few minutes and you'll feel refreshed instantly!

Skin Cleanser:

One of the best cleanses and hydrates at the same time is rose water. Once you have washed your face with a your favorite face wash gently dab rose water on your clean face with a cotton swab to remove any stubborn leftover makeup and grime which wasn't washed when you washed your face!

Protects from bacterial infections:

It helps in purifying the skin and protecting it from bacterial infections. It acts a barrier between skin and bacteria and is very effective in keeping oil away at bay!

Makeup haul from Jabong ! Mua & Makeup Revolution : First Impressions

If you have been reading a lot of beauty reviews on our website (Blingsparkle) you must have come across a lovely cream blush 'Ritzy' by MUA . You can read the full review of the MUA Luxe Velvet cream blush in 'Ritzy' here. It is my holy Grail product when it comes to cream blushes. It was my second product from MUA after their kiss lip gloss . Previously this week there was this great sale on Jabong India and many of Mua products and Makeup revolution products( This doesn't need any intro!) . I went berserk and bought a lot of products from both beauty brands.

Both MUA and Makeup revolution are quite affordable drugstore brands and the only con about them is their availability in India ! From the haul may of the products where a steal deal while others where quite a let down. Today Ill share the worst and best products from my haul. I have categorized the products from my haul into two categories. Read on to know which of them belonged to which category!

Add caption

Best And Worst of MUA and Makeup Revolution London 

All of the products can be bought online and are super drug products. Many of these products turned out to be great ones and many I regret buying ( As they are non-returnable and I am stuck with them!) hence I am making a post on the worst and the good buys  many of which include the price factory as in India. Lets start from MUA.
best of mua

  kiss me, sweet kiss, great lips



Mua Makeup Academy Shade 3 Liquid Eyeliner -3G (INR 615):

I was in search of a metallic eyeliner and I was very happy with the metallic bold look this eyeliner let me create. Its waterproof and one single swipe gives a intense pigment of a metallic shade on my eyelids. I am in love with this eyeliner and cannot wait to flaunt it. Beautiful buy!

Mua Makeup Academy Kiss Me Love Heart Lip Balms: (INR 350):

Everything about this lip balm is LOVE ! The fragrance, the packaging and the tint *happy dance* . I am so happy I bought two in this shade as they are absolutely gorgeous and give my lips a beautiful tinted pink look. This among their Love hearts range and the best in that range. I also like the sweet kiss one but not as much as this one. Moisturizes lips and glides smoothly on my lips. Its one of the best lip balms out there in the market! It is decently pigmented and the texture is a dream which is why I am going to ignore the fact that they are priced a little on the higher note in India! It leaves a lovely red tint on my lips and gives a glossy lip look. Very happy!

Mua Makeup Academy Sweet Kiss Love Heart Lip Balms: (INR 350):

This is another lip balm from the same range . Smells amazing and has a sweet light pink tint which might not show on pigmented lips but looks great and does its job of moisturizing real well ! Loved everything about this lip balm.

Mua Makeup Academy Shade 3 Mascara (BLUE) INR 700 :

I am obsessed with blue nowadays and this is my first colored mascara ! I am so excited to flaunt this. it looked absolutely stunning on my lashes and I was afraid it would be too OTT but it was amazing ! Its sure to grab a lot of eyeballs and it does add volume to my lashes and make them look thicker ! Fabulous!
blue mascara MUA review

Mua Makeup Academy Shade 5 Blusher: (INR 750)

I had read a lot of great reviews about the MUA blushes and grabbed quite a few shades in them and this shade 5 by MUA topped the list ! Its a pretty toned down subdued coral shade and would suit almost all Indian skin tones. It instantly brightened up my face and its my to go powder blush for now!

Mua Makeup Academy Shade 4 Blusher: (INR 750)

This is another favorite from their powder blush range .Loved their classy and travel friendly  packaging . It is a s with shimmers which are not at all prominent when applied on the apples of my cheeks. It will look absolutely gorgeous on fair to medium skinned beauties. Gives a perfect flushed look to my cheeks and has a soft texture and can be built to your satisfaction.It gives a beautiful glow to my cheeks and looks stunning ! LOVE !

Mua Makeup Academy Shade-1 Liquid Eyeliner (INR 615):

This is a very bright colored blue eyeliner and goes perfectly with my current blue obsession mood ! Glides on my eyes without effort and gives my eyes a new dimension , totally worth the purchase ! Quite pigmented and it does not flake , the only con would be the applicator which I found to be a little hard to work with. For all those in love with blue liners must try this waterproof liner as it has a decent staying power too!


Mua Makeup Academy Medium Beauty Balm (Shade 2) : INR 950

First of all the shade is way too light even though its a Medium Shade which is mine. Plus the texture is pathetic and the tube is filled with a lot of air! Very pricey for a BB cream ! Its one of my most worst buys and I deeply regret spending my money on this BB cream! Do not buy this, its a waste of money! Not recommended ! This one can be concluded as a major miss !

MUA BB cream review

Mua Makeup Academy Shade 2 Blusher: (INR 750):

Shade 2 might be something I shouldn't pick p from MUA's range as it has fared real bad with me. This blusher din't show up on my cheeks and shows up only after a couple of swipes. Very light and hardly seen on my cheeks. As this a light shade it has a very low staying power on my cheeks. Din't work for me.

Mua Makeup Academy Shade 1 Mascara (BROWN) INR 700:

I was sent a slightly dry product and second of all it din't even show on my light black eye lashes. I was hoping on using it to create a subtle yet dramatic look but was dissapointed !I really did not like this at all!
drugstore colored mascara

Mua makeup Academy Great Lips Love Hearts Lip Balm: INR 350

This lip balm hardly had any tint and was unflattering. bu it does moisturise well but fails to conquer over kiss me and sweet me and hence I wish I had given this one a miss and bought another cute tub of the Kiss me Lip balm! I would not say it is worst as I am definitely going to use this in my nighttime routine everyday unlike the other two products above. This is not terrible by any means, it's just not amazing like the other two variants from this range!



Makeup Revolution London I Heart Passion Wonder Palette : (INR 2000)

This beautiful eye shadow palette is from Makeup revolution london's I ♥ Makeup range. This palette is a versatile palette as it has a lot of mattes and shimmery shades to play with. It comes with a full size mirror and a sponge applicator. It has two highlighting shades and some bold colors which are perfect to make that bold smokey eye. To top it all is the uber cute packaging which has a pink heart at the top. Absolutely love this palette!
Makeup Revolution london

Makeup Revolution London No Ordinary Love Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer : (INR 700)

This gloss is one of a kind for its non sticky ! It looked sweet on my lips and moisturized my lips real well ! In love with this lip lacquer . I did want to to try Makeup revolution london's velvet lip lacquers which are liquid lipsticks but picked u this one for a change. I really loved the formula of this gloss ! Its beautiful and one that i will use  a lot in the coming days!
lip lacquer

Makeup Revolution London Amazing Waterproof Black Eyeliner: (INR 500)

This is an amazing liner to work with, the felt tip which is firm gives us freedom to create a bold line on the lids. The felt tip is great and picks up the right amount of product. It dries into a bold black matte black color and looks amazing my eyelids ! One of the best liners I have come across ! Its intense black, super pigmented , smudge proof and waterproof ! I am so happy I bought this (It was on a 75% discount) *mini happy dance* Every jet black eyeliner lover out there must indulge in this awesomeness ! Totally recommended !

best matte black eyeliner in India


Makeup Revolution London Luscious Amazing Lipstick: (INR 450)

For the price its a huge letdown for other than packaging there is nothing much to rave about this lipstick. i was on a lookout for a cool toned orange shade and hence picked up this but it din't suit my medium skin tone. The most disappointing thing was the staying power which is very low ! Not satisfied with this one. It did look great in the bullet but does not look good on my skin. It might look good on fair skinned beauties but its definitely a must avoid for medium to dusky skin tones as it does not hide imperfections of my lips.  am thinking of using to use this with another lipstick of mine to make use of this.
Makeup Revolution london

Both of the brands have really good products and are a major hit when bought on a discount ! Which of these beauty products would you like to own? Have a favorite ? Tell me !

In Nature, With Nature- Going The Natural Way with Banjara’s

Nature is soothing.. Nature is relieving . Nature is relaxing. Nature is rejuvenating. Nature is healing.
meandnature banjaras natural beauty products love
Don’t we all love natural skin and beauty care products ? Not just for they ensure the safety or our skin  but because they have numerous benefits that work beautifully with the skin. We all love natural products but have we ever cared of Mother nature? Lemme explain.
How many of you are addicted to beauty and personal care products? Addicted to it so badly that you would make sure  buy every new beauty, cosmetic or personal care product that has won your heart with its promising claims? Were you unaware of the harmful chemicals they contained that would harm your skin and wouldn’t stop at that but go on to harm mother nature? This is a message we should spread to avoid damaging our Environment. Its high time we took note of this and took better care of our nature. This message is beautifully explained in a lovely video by a trusted Organic and herbal brand – Banjara’s, the products of which are made from the most natural, high-quality ingredients, carefully selected for their ability to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
I like their way of conveying the message of taking care of our nature so that it can take care of us in return ( #meandnature). It is important to remember that products made from conventionally produced ingredients can have a negative environmental impact which is why one must choose natural based products over chemical based products. Its disheartening to know that most of us chose chemical based personal beauty products as the manufacturing of such chemical-heavy health and beauty products puts the chemicals, and many more, into the air and water, damaging our nature.
We often start the new year with resolutions to change and do things differently. This time I made a resolution to stick to natural products to the hilt. It’s a time to renew and restart. When it comes to your food and my beauty regime, I always opt for organic and natural . This way at least I can be sure I am doing yourself, and the planet, a great deal of good.
Nature has its own ways to heal our skin . It was not easy for me to stick to my resolution. But thanks to brands like Banjara’s , going the green way just got easier ! Banjara’s promotes using nature based products and I am in love with their Samrvidhi hair oil and Samvridhi hair pack for now ! When you're accustomed to doing things the way you always have, you may not see why you would want to switch up your routine. But once you start using natural based products like Multani mitti+ orange scrub face wash from Banjara’s you see the benefits of choosing nature based products.  Also I have experienced great results while using natural based beauty and health products . After I was highly satisfied with the results garnered by usage of  natural and herbal beauty products I felt a need to adopt a new, natural lifestyle with health and beauty products that could help me look and feel great.
Reversing this spread starts with each and every one of us. All you need is to make small changes, such as replacing a harsh hair oil by an organic and eco-friendly one. And the great news is there is always a  healthier and safer alternative. The key is to be more conscious of our choices, read labels, and encourage companies that are making safe and environment-friendly products. With so many amazing brands and products to choose from, we naturally-minded herbal beauties are no longer limited to choosing from insanely overpriced celebrity brands . With nature based brands like Banjara’s one can ensure you are getting everything without harming your health or the environment. Bes part is that they have products the whole family can take benefits from ! From Here are a few products you can try from their Herbal range . Banjara’s Samvridhi hair oil and Multani Mitti + Orange peel scrub face wash (Does the work of a scrub & face wash!) being my two top favorites among all their products!
Also the fact that Banjara’s products are  cruelty-free, as they are not tested on any animals makes it even more better. Banjara’s is also  listed under PETA’s cruelty-free companies !
Banjara’s samvridhi hair care range and Banjaras mulatani mitti + orange peel  scrub have scored real well with me and have done wonders for my hair and face!The first time I used Banjara’s Samvridhi Hair oil and the Banjara’s Hair pack it was love at first use ! My hair felt rejuvenated and restored. My hair felt alive after I washed the hair pack cum cleanser off! Its a must try for all natural based oil lovers plus its so affordable. I am done with my first tube and I can hardly wait to buy my next one. Where as the oil is a gem for it showed great results in preventing my hair from breakage. I  now use it on regular basis and have made of a ritual to use it on my hair tips after every bath.
Another favorite of mine from Banjara’s is their orange peel facewash ! Loved it! It acts as a gentle scrub plus cleanses face. You can read my review Here: Banjaras Samvridhi Hairl oil and the review for the tan free face wash here: Banjara’s Orange+multani mitti Tan removal facewash.
You can also first try their samples to see how they fare . Click here to get free sample from Banjara’s.

I love that their products are high-quality, but very affordable, and that you can select based on your age and requirement. My mom loves herbal products for her hair. I am going totally recommend her to try the Banjaras Brazilian herbal hair dye. You can also try the Banjara’s papaya and multani mitti face pack, this one I haven’t try and believe me its topping in my wish list for this month!
have you tried any of my Banjara’s top favorites? Are you ready to plunge into natural beauty with Banjara’s? Do tell me !
Until next time

Banjara’s Samvridhi Hair Oil & Samvridhi Hair Pack Review : Forget hair fall & Enjoy hair growth !

Nothing nourishes dry-frizzy hair faster than a hair oil. I am a hair oil lover and love using coconut oil and oils extracted from herbs to nourish my hair!

You don’t always have to invest in fancy, popular name hair products for your hair. Sometimes the best hair oils are actually very simple and made from natural herbs. One such hair oil I fell in love with recently was 'Banjara's samvridhi hair oil'. Why is this different from other fancy hair oils? Well it is natural oil enriched with henna, shihkakai, neem, pipalli, olive oil and coconut oil to name a few. I’m all for natural oils as natural oils are amazing for hair. I make sure I keep my hair far far away from chemicals and heating.

 A hair oil with the goodness of so many rich herbs was tempting and I had to give 'Banjara's Samvridhi Hair Oil ' a try! A good hair oil with herbs from mother nature is something everybody with gradual hair fall should try. The oil works wonders on my hair.

Your hair's best friend is a good hair oil processed with natural herbs. Using natural oils processed with herbs makes hair softer, longer and even stronger. Basically hair needs oil. Read away to know how this hair oil fared with me...

Know The Brand - 'Banjaras':

You know I love everything on sale and that is how I came to know of this brand. A few face washes and face packs from banjara cosmetics where up on sale and I being a natural skin care lover just couldn't stop myself from buying them And after using their face wash, face cream and face pack I must say I am a fan of their natural products. the best thing about their products is that they are affordable and we get a touch of nature nourishment without having to spend a lot! I for one love products from their brand , my new favourite is their hair oil and henna hair pack from their Samvridhi hair care range ! With these two I am sure my hair is getting the best natural care!
 banjara samvridhi hair oil

Price and Quantity:

INR 199 for 125 ml

Shelf Life:

3 years


 banjaras samvridhi hair oil

Variant being Reviewed:

 Banjaras' Samvridhi Hair Oil

One Word: 

herbal natural hair oil


Comes in a sturdy see through plastic bottle with open screw cap. the top nozzle has a hole in the middle which when poked helps in pouring the desired amount of oil and ensures the oil does not spill all over. All in all the packaging is sturdy and travel friendly!


It is slightly sticky and flowy like other hair oils and gets easily absorbed into the scalp.


Has a strong herbal fragrance which fades away after some time.

Shade/ Colour:

Light orangish-brown in color due to the presence of rare herbs.


The screw open cap along with a small hole in the centre makes it very easy to pour the desired amount of hair oil in my palm. I start applying it from the front of head to the back, slowly massaging it into my scalp and then the whole length of my thin long hair. I then leave it for 4-5 hours before applying the hair pack from the same range. I then leave the hair pack for another good 15 minutes before washing my hair with a herbal shampoo or a paraben -free shampoo.

My experience with Banjaras Samvridhi Hair oil:

If you are selling a herbal hair oil with claims its going to reduce hair fall  I am all for it! Plus the absence of mineral oil makes even more tempting. I am happy I got my hands on this hair oil. I have been using this for quite some time now and I must say I am pretty impressed. Even though I would not go on measuring my hair to check if the brand claims to promote hair growth up to 8cm in just 8 weeks is true , I am definitely going to keep using it as it hasn't affected my hair in any way. Let me tell you what, some of the nautral hair oils in the market actually have a reverse effect on my hair , might be due to the presence of mineral oil but this one by Banjara's has improved the texture of my hair and my hair fall has reduced !
But there is no denying it needs massaging completely into my hair and the best results are found when i use it along with the Banjara's Samvridhi hair pack!
Over use, it strengthens the hair roots and prevents excessive hair fall. When you oil regularly, the dandruff issues will get resolved too. I started oiling regularly and the scalp itchiness had gone. My scalp is oily but the length is very dry and damaged. This Bankaras Samvridhi hair oil suited my hair type. I have very fine limp hair and oiling my hair helps me. There is an improvement in the texture of my hair.
I can honestly conclude that the oil has helped in reduction of hair fall and the length of my hair does seem thicker. I use this oil thrice in a week and the piling along with massaging has helped me relax and it has aided my hair loss problem! I have very (Very very very!) fine hair which is dry and prone to breakage . After I wash my hair I have noticed my hair has got more volume which means its growing thick *jump of joy*
After watching numerous videos on hair growth on youtube and failing to control my hair fall this oil has fared well when compared to various things I tried before.

Banjara's hair pack

DamselInHeels Rating:★★★★/5

Would I buy this product again?

The hair oil boasts of several ayurvedic herbs nourishing the scalp that stimulate hair follicle and promote hair growth. And the brand claim certainly stays true to an extent ! I can swear that I saw the difference from the first wash. I absolutely loved their samvridhi hair pack but the hair oil is something I used on for a whole week and concluded that it was the one for me. Being a super affordable hair oil this is one hair product which going to stay permanently in my hair care regime!
Yes, I would DEFINITELY buy this hair oil until I have lustrous hair but for the hair pack , which I have fallen head over heels in love with I would certainly buy it again and again and AGAIN!

Do I recommend this? :

If you're thinking of using a hair oil overnight – look no further than this one. A heavenly blend of the most relaxing oils you can imagine, all packed into one bottle. There’s mind-relaxing sweet birch bark, anxiety relieving lemon balm, soothing Roman chamomile and calming lavender. You'll get some seriously good beauty sleep with this massaged into your scalp and summer-parched locks.definitely recommend it those who are on a lookout for an incredibly affordable ayurvedic hair oil which stays true to its hair growth and hair fall reduction claim!

Final Verdict:

Using a ayurvedic hair oil will completely change your hair care routine forever - no exaggeration!
If you find yourself with seriously damaged hair, this hair oil's blend of 10 natural ayurvedic herbs and 3 oils will give a new life to your limp and lifeless hair! If thinning hair and damaged roots are your main concerns, you'll love this hair oil. Definitely give it a try !
