Hi I am Jyoti. Everything-That Matters was more of a personal space for me to write on anything and everything that came to my mind. Never knew it is going to reach so far. It is still the same in the sense that I share anything that is exciting but now it has turned into a platform for many to share their thoughts and view point as well.
I was serum obsessed since the last 3-4 years when I first tried a serum on my dry hair ends after washing & saw the world of difference! The very famous Kerastase Elixir Ultime was my first buy followed by this cult Moroccanoil Treatment Light(for fine hair) & I used & loved both of them almost equally. Now that I am finally through with my Moroccanoil as well, I finally decided to review it for you & tell you if the high price point & hype is justified or not.

Q: What is the difference between Moroccanoil® Treatment Light and the original Moroccanoil Treatment formula?
A: Moroccanoil Treatment Light was created for consumers with fine and light-colored (including white or gray) hair. Moroccanoil Treatment Light delivers the same benefits as Moroccanoil Treatment but is lighter in formulation, texture and color.
Q: Can Moroccanoil Treatment be used with other Moroccanoil products?
A: Yes. Moroccanoil Treatment can be used in conjunction with all other Moroccanoil products as it is the foundation for styling.
Q: What is the difference between Moroccanoil® Treatment and Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil?
A: Moroccanoil Treatment’s groundbreaking, nourishing formula contains argan oil in a perfect balance with other high-performance ingredients to create an instantly absorbable, non-greasy formula that leave hair smooth, conditioned and manageable. It is an essential foundation for all hair types that can be used for styling and/or as a shine-boosting finishing touch.
Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil is 100% pure argan oil, which is known for its nourishing and conditioning properties for the skin, nails and hair. It may be applied as a moisturizer over areas that need pampering, and/or as a richly hydrating hand, nail and cuticle treatment.
How To Use-
Apply 1–2 pumps of Moroccanoil® Treatment to clean, towel-dried hair, from mid-length to ends. Blow-dry or let dry naturally. Apply on dry hair to tame flyaways, condition split ends and smooth hair.
TIP: Mix a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment with Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, Weightless Hydrating Mask or Restorative Hair Mask for added nourishment.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light Claims
Key Ingredients : Argan Oil: Extremely rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E), essential fatty acids and antioxidants that hydrate and nourish the hair.
Linseed Extract: Derived from flaxseed, a good source of alpha linolenic acid—also an essential fatty acid that helps improve the health of hair.
The Moroccanoil treatment comes in a dark brown, sturdy glass bottle with a white cap & a separate pump to be attached when you start using. Of course since mine is more than 3 years old, I have dropped the bottle (did not break), lost the white cap & have managed to carry the bottle with the pump still attached without leaking. So all in all, though I don’t approve of glass bottles, it is a sturdy & functional one.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light Packaging
The serum is light amber in color with a light oil-like consistency but it is still very easy to spread on to the hair whether wet or dry For my fine hair, I only need 2-3 drops each time I use it & it performs admirably well in whichever way I have ever used it It is completely non-oily/sticky & would work well for finer/thinner hair types.
I have used it mostly as a leave-in serum & I love how a few drops can make such a magical difference to my frizzy, dry hair ends. After my hair dries, it is left hydrated, soft, with the frizz cut down to a large extent yet not at all weighed down <3 It has always as well as my Kerastase one & maybe even a tad better.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light
I do get the pet peeve of many women that argan oil is 3rd on the ingredient list & it is mostly loaded with silicones which is true, no doubt. But I have used pure argan oil on my hair & really preferred the effect Moroccanoil gave my hair so I don’t really care. Whatever works for me, I will go for it. Also, FYI, Kerastase has argan oil 4th on their list & is loaded with chemicals as well.
The fragrance is mesmerizing & lingering, even nicer than Kerastase- a soft, sensuous, musky fragrance which stays in my hair forever.
Pros of the Moroccanoil Treatment Light:
1> Sturdy & classy glass bottle packaging with pump & separate crew-on cap.
2> The treatment is very lightweight in texture- easy to apply.
3> Great for finer/thinner hair types.
4> Works amazingly well as a leave-in & leaves my hair hydrated, soft & frizz free almost <3
5> One bottle lasts for more than 3 years for my hair.
6> Mesmerizing sensuous musky fragrance which lingers in hair through the day.
Cons of the Moroccanoil Treatment Light:
Nothing at all.
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Moroccanoil Treatment Light?
Moroccanoil Treatment Light is the lighter version of the original Moroccanoil & it is absolutely similar in all aspects except the fact it is lighter & does not weigh down hair at all(I have used both, yes) & the original one is slightly oilier & better for very rough & dry hair. I thoroughly enjoyed my bottle & planning to repurchase. The steep price was a putoff initially but it lasts for years & years so I don’t mind investing anymore. Recommended!
Washing your face is now a thing of the past thanks to new advances in technology. Electronic Facial Cleansers are a growing trend and a must-have beauty buy. Along with the good and expensive ones like Clinique at 12,000 Rs, you will also get duplicates that are extremely cheap like generic companies at 250 Rs. The Vega Rechargeable Facial Cleanser is somewhere in between with both quality and price. I stumbled upon it by chance in The Beauty Shop in Kandivali West in Mumbai and I am absolutely in love with this exciting new product.
VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser Review
What is an electronic facial cleanser? Well, it is an at home cleansing system to enhance beauty and radiance in just a few minutes a day. It is gentle enough for most skin types and conditions. If you’re someone who really takes care of their skin and are yet desperate to see a change in its quality, tone and texture then this is the tool you’ve been waiting for.
A facial cleansing brush delivers daily deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation. If you, like me, use make up regularly, this will remove it all thoroughly. A cleansing brush is more effective than manual cleansing because it cleans deeper, there by unblocking pores. It also exfoliates dead skin cells to renew your facial skin leaving it squeaky clean, radiant, smooth feeling and youthful looking.
The VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser comes with
1 hand held electric Facial Cleansing Device
1 rotating soft sponge head,
1 rotating soft brush head
1 rotating silicone brush head
1 USB cable
1 Travel Case
1 Hand Wrist Strap Lanyard
The silicone facial cleansing brush is suitable for people with sensitive skin. Gentle yet effective, it draws out any dirt and impurities
The Soft PBT brush is made with ultra-soft nylon bristles for gentle daily cleansing. It can be used for the face and neck for deep cleaning. It can unclog pores and help reduce acne breakouts. It is suitable for oily and for combination skin types
The latex sponge provides a gentle massage action as well as exfoliates your skin. It can be used with microderm abrasion crystals or to apply face masks. Make sure you clean it well. Latex sponges hoard bacteria.
The VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser can rotate all the heads 360° in clock and anti clock wise direction. So when you switch it on, the first click causes the attachment to move in a clockwise motion, the second time you click, anti clock wise and third time it switches off.
Price: 1999/- INR
My take on VEGA’s Rechargeable Facial Cleanser-
Firtsly, the design and plastic cum rubber grip of the device is absolutely fantastic. Small, cute and easy to hold and use.
VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser Packaging
I use the silicone brush attachment every night. Firstly I remove all my eye make up by hand then moisten my skin and brush head with water. I apply a cleanser directly onto my skin or the brush head and take about 5 seconds on each section of my face. I start from the chin upwards towards and gently glide over the skin using small circular motions. Keep the brush head close to the skin and don’t press too hard and don’t repeat the motion. There is only one speed mind you which I think is great.
VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser Components
I use the soft brush attachment once a week for deep cleaning. The bristles are extremely soft so I have absolutely no complaints. I also use it around my neck. I have found that the back of my neck is a lot cleaner and fairer. The lines of dirt that develop because of the folds in my skin have disappeared. Do not use this all over the body. The bristles will wear off. Invest in a separate body brush.
As for the latex sponge, I did use it once for a face pack application. Well, I thought most of it got absorbed into the sponge rather than into my skin. So I’d give it a skip. It is ideal for microderm abrasion but that is not my cup of tea.
VEGA Facial Cleanser Review
I find both the soft brush and the silicon brush easy to maneuver around the nasal fold. It is important not miss the T zone as clogging starts there due to oil and dirt. Do not use them over your eye area. The skin around there is extremely delicate and does not have any oil glands.
I do not use this in the shower although it is water resistant. I think that your face care routine should be done with a bit of time at hand and before your shower. Detach the head that you have used when it is time to clean it and run it under water. Do not use an abrasive cleansing product or chemical to clean your facial cleanser.
Vega provides you with a white coloured lanyard for easy carting around your fingers or wrist. It has to be attached to the storage case, not the device. The recharging cable is a micro USB cable that can be plugged into a USB wall travel charger adapter.
Pros of the VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser:
Suitable for professional as well as at home use
360° Rotating heads
3 head attachments
Rechargeable Facial cleanser
Deeply and gently cleanses the skin
Hygienic because the brush heads can be washed
3 hours charge time
Operation time up to 2 hours
USB rechargeable ( USB Cord included )
Fits easily in a purse or handbag
Compact storage case ready for travel
Stylish product. Colour scheme is soothing.
Cons of the VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser:
If the bristles wear out, you will have to order replacements online
My Rating: 5/5
Do I recommend the VEGA Rechargeable Facial Cleanser?
This is the budget version of the more sophisticated facial cleansers on the market. It gives you what you pay for. It left my face feeling noticeably cleaner and clearer after just one use! Need I go for a facial as often as I used to? I doubt. That saves me at least 2000 rs each time. Vega has come a long way and can rightfully claim to be a true flag-bearer of the Indian beauty accessory industry in India.
I am a self-confessed toner junkie & love experimenting with a lot of toners. I am still besotted with my Pixi Glow Tonic but thought I should limit my use of glycolic acid to alternate days so I started alternating with this lovely gentle toner from Kiehl’s- their calendula toner.
This facial toner for oily skin and normal skin has been trusted by Kiehl’s customers since the 1960s. Hand-inserted Calendula flower petals work with other gentle ingredients like Great Burdock Root to create a cleansing and soothing toner for skin.
Gently cleanses and refreshes facial skin without harsh synthetic drying agents
Soothes and improves to create a more balanced, even skin tone
Formulated with Calendula, Burdock Root and Allantoin
For normal to oily skin types, including sensitive skin
A customer favorite
The Calendula petals in our unique skin toner are still inserted by hand in the Kiehl’s apothecary tradition to ensure the most efficacious formula.
How to Apply:
After cleansing with a face wash like Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, moisten a sterile cotton pad with this facial toner
Smooth on skin in areas where needed, avoiding the eye area
Apply day or night
Can be followed with the cooling hydration of Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask
My take on the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner-
All Kiehl’s liquid products come in cylindrical transparent bottles with white flip-top caps & this is no exception. It is a fuss-free & convenient packaging though I would not carry it along for the large size.
The toner is pale yellow in color with real calendula petals actually floating inside It has a runny texture & feels like water when I saturate a cotton round with it & sweep gently across my face. It has no stinging or cooling feel & instead feels very mild, hydrating & instantly wipes off the remnant dirt & grime from the skin without stripping it at all <3 My skin immediately feels refreshed, softer without any stretchy/dry feel
I have been using this toner for more than a month now & have till date not seen any irritation/aggravation of my sensitive skin. It instantly calms & soothes my skin & is perfect for even my normal-dry skin type even though it claims to be for oilier types.
The toner has a very mild herbal type of fragrance which I don’t like much but it is too mild to bother any nose so that’s okay
Pros of the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner:
1> Sturdy fuss free bottle packaging with flip-top cap
2> Mild, watery consistency- neither stripping nor heavy/greasy.
Cons of the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner:
None as such except the fact of course Kiel’s products are awfully pricey.
My Rating: 4.7/5!
Do I recommend the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner?
Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Toner
Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner is a very mild & gentle toner suitable for all skin types, made to calm & soothe skin while removing all remnant makeup & dirt & grime. It is pricey indeed but a little goes a long way & I have hardly made a dent in mine after using for more than a month Recommended.
It’s been long since you have heard from me, so here I am Now, I have been struggling from puffy, tired eyes since forever! It’s no secret that this wonderful brand called Vaadi Herbals is soon turning out to be my favorite,and why not? They have herbal,Indian and economic fare to offer and it suits me well! So I thought of giving this small tub of under eye cream a chance. Apart from using under eye roll ons this is my first tryst with an under eye cream. Read on to know how it fared with me!
Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream Review
What Vaadi Herbals Says:
A super rich formula for your undereye skin, its regular use keeps your eyes and the surrounding skin looking young and lively. The ageold goodness of cucumber, almonds and pink rose, works from within to lighten the dark skin under the eyes, and to reduce puffiness. Their antioxidant content smoothes wrinkles, reducing years off your eyes.
The area under the eyes has the most sensitive skin. It is thin and lacks the oil glands like rest of the skin. This makes it all the more important to nourish it so as to keep dark circles and wrinkles at bay. Lack of sleep, constant exposure to the sun, long working hours and lack of proper nutrition and care leads to dark circles, puffy eyes, bags and fine lines called the crow’s feet.
Further, as the skin ages, these signs make the face appear stressed, unattractive and one tends to look older than their age. An all natural Under Eye Cream will not only cure the above signs but also nourish the skin to make it healthier and resistant to external factors. By revitalizing the sensitive skin under the eyes, the cream acts as a gentle moisturizer that seeps in and cools the skin’s epidermal layer.
How does Almond Oil treat under eye dark circles?
Sweet almonds’ dry kernel yields almond oil. This light-weighted oil is rich in Vitamin A and D which help in treating sensitive skin with care and safeguard it from damage and allergies. Almond Oil is: Natural Moisturizer: The best thing about this oil is that it suits all skin types. Pure Almond Oil moisturizes the skin under the eyes, relieving stress bags. It is a great lubricant that not only soothes the skin but also penetrates in the skin’s layers making up for any kind of essential oil loss. This helps in fading away the dark circles in no time. Excellent Emollient: Almond Oil has essential nutrients in it which softens and soothes the skin. Also, it compensates for the skin’s water loss by replacing it with moisture and nutrients. Improves Skin Complexion: Almond Oil is rich in Vitamin E. It not only improves the skin complexion, diminish the appearance of dark circles but the skin looks all the more young, healthier. Fine lines and crow’s feet disappear and the skin-aging process slows down. It brightens the eye contour.
Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream Claims
How does Vitamin E prevent wrinkles?
Since the human body does not synthesize Vitamin E, it has to be supplied externally. Vitamin E is extremely important for: Anti Aging Benefits: Vitamin E is very effective in diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and fighting the possible signs of aging, thus acting as the perfect anti-aging element. The crow’s feet and lines near the eyes disappear with frequent use of the cream. Anti-Oxidant: Vitamin E is considered as the best anti-oxidant. It protects the sensitive skin under the eyes from sun’s harmful UV-Rays which may have an harsh impact otherwise. With constant exposure, the dark circles further darken and skin ages rapidly. Vitamin E acts as a protective shield, beautifying the area around the eyes.
The cooling effect of Cucumber
Packed with silica, Cucumber is a complete under eye treatment in itself. It not only it helps in removing under-eye puffiness but also helps in reducing wrinkles. Cucumber is a natural moisturizer and is a great relaxant. Cucumber cools the sensitive skin under the eyes, gradually fading away the dark circles and stressed look of the eyes. Pigmentation and blemishes that are caused due to the sun or lack of nutrition lighten up and gradually diminish. Cucumber is rich in anti-oxidants and it takes special care of the delicate skin under the eyes, thoroughly nourishing it and beautifying the eye contour.
How does Rose water beautify the skin?
The sweet perfumed rose water is a perfect emollient as it nourishes the skin by cooling it and penetrating deep to refresh the stressed skin making it look younger, fresher and glowing. From the distilled rose petal, a hydrosol portion is kept aside. Also, during the production of Rose oil, Rose water is taken out as a by product. Rose water works on skin as a gentle astringent by providing a soothing effect on the skin. It reaches deep within the layers of the skin and diminishes any harm caused by the sun and cools the eye contour making way for other ingredient to work their best. Also, the aroma of rose water is so pleasant that it refreshes the senses and gives a relaxed and refreshed feel altogether.
Price: Rs 58 for 30g
My take on the Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream-
Now the cream as you can see in the picture is packed in a cute itsy witsy tub (which is rather cute btw). Also, the consistency is rather thick, which is pretty expected from an under eye cream. The color is off white (pearly) and smell is nothing like any of the ingredients except the rose, nevertheless it quite a pleasant scent, I loved it!
Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream Packaging
I used it for about 4 nights, it didn’t really make a huge difference, I used it for another 4 nights but nothing notable, I was so disappointed, since the cooling effect was good, but dark circles refused to simply! It was lying in my drawer idle, until one day I didn’t have a night cream and was forced to “try” this one, OMG, I was in for a shock! ( pleasant one though!)
It worked magic and its been 2 months since it glorious debut as my night cream and it has been my favourite!! It moisturises, nourishes and doesn’t clog up at all!! Perfect fix!
Pros of the Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream:
Good and sturdy package.
Works awesomely as a night cream.
Cons of the Vaadi Herbals Under Eye Cream:
Doesn’t do much for the dark circles and puffy eyes.
Not effective as a under eye cream.

Insight Mineralized Pressed Powder in “Natural Beige” Packaging
Insight Mineralize Pressed Powder (Natural Beige) comes in a shining black body and it has a very different packaging from the regular compacts available.

It looks very handy, sturdy and travel friendly.

It immediately freshens my face and keeps the oil away for about 3-4 hours. The compact goes well with my winter dryness.

Narciso Rodriguez Narciso EDP For Women Packaging
At first sniff, I get a strong floral hit of gardenia immediately overtaken by a very clean, soapy, creamy musk which I simply love. I generally find musky notes to be too strong & overwhelming but in this case I find the musk to be soft yet enticing ^_^ It is like wearing a furry, cozy sweater & snuggling up inside it.
Narciso Rodriguez Narciso EDP For Women
The base notes are originally cedar & vetiver but all I get is prominent musk which is still comforting & creamy instead of stale or piercing & whiffs of vetiver in between.
Lasting power is excellent & I get a strong wear of 10+ hours from this EDP with the main notes unchanged & still warm & fresh
Pros of the Narciso Rodriguez Narciso EDP For Women:
1> Classy sophisticated heavy square glass bottle packaging
2> Warm, clean, soapy musk notes make this a comforting fragrance for the colder days <3
3> Great lasting power- more than 10 hours on me!

My take on the Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm-
The Colorbar Beauty Balm comes in a Convenient tube packaging with a screw off cap . It has a Thin Nozzle tip to dispense the product . The Formula is slightly creamy , thick but soft mousse kinds which feels light weight and spreads easily on the skin provided you have moisturised your skin well beforehand . When used directly it tends to get patchy and clings to dry patches on my skin . I prefer to use it over my Sunscreen which gives a nice slip to my skin and applying/blending this becomes easier . It carries a mild, pleasant fragrance which I find okayish .
Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm Packaging
The Colorbar Beauty Balm is available in Three shades ( White Light , Vanilla Creme and Honey Glaze) and The Shade White Light is a very good match for me (for reference NC 25 in MAC) . When swatched on the hand , the shade looks slightly dark but I noticed it does adapt to skin tone once blended well into the skin .
The Beauty Balm provides Light coverage to the skin and is good enough for just evening out the Skin tone. The Finish it gives is a soft matte and I prefer to set it with a Compact/Translucent powder in Summers . In winters I like the slight Glow I get on my skin after a while of applying this .
Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm in “White Light”
Overall This in my Favourite Go-to Base makeup product after the Bourjois CC cream (which I would be reviewing soon) .

Choosing the right type of facewash for your skin, especially during winters is extremely hard. I love to sit in the sun during this weather! My skin is the first one that suffers from the tanning and uneven tone. I really wanted a good facewash that removes my tan and does not make my skin dry. I was using Olay Natural White Night cream and I am really satisfied with the results, so I thought of buying a facewash from the same range. Today I am glad that I made this choice. The product is almost finished and I have already placed an order for the second one. Want to know what made me fall for Olay Natural White Foaming Facewash? Read on to find out more!

It is a deliciously indulgent shower gel which leaves the entire bathroom smelling fruity & sweet
