Today, I am sharing my view of the pedicure and manicure kit from a brand called VAADI HERBALS. The attractive pricing and the availability of this product across major e-commerce websites prompted me to buy it.

To begin with, this kit consists of a foot cleanser, a foot scrub, a foot cream, an anti-tan foot mask, and a nail and cuticle oil.  An entire pedicure-manicure range of products at an affordable price. I could not ask for more.

The packaging is really attractive. It is very compact and easy to carry.

The products are carefully arranged in a travel-friendly box.

The first product in this range is the foot cleanser. It has a gel-like consistency and has a strong lemongrass fragrance. Upon application, it lathers gently and does not produce excessive foam. It cleanses gently though not excessively, which is good in my case. The cleansing also requires a generous amount of the product and one scoop will not suffice.

The next product is a foot scrub. This product is my favorite in this entire range. It looks very luxurious though not very pricey. It has a creamy consistency with small herbal particles for gentle exfoliation. Again, it has a strong lemongrass fragrance and requires quite a generous amount for a thorough exfoliation.

The third product is a foot cream, which has a buttery consistency and mildly hydrating. It absorbs well into your skin without leaving the feet greasy. However, if you have a dry or very dry skin, you may require an extra layer of a heavy-duty moisturizer on top of it. The cream did not have an overpowering fragrance as its ingredients do not include lemongrass.

The fourth product is an anti-tan foot mask, which is little herbal and earthy. Again, you require a generous amount of the product to make it work for you. Upon application, it blends well into your skin unlike a typical mask that would stick to the outer layer of the skin. 

The last and final product is a nail and cuticle oil, which comes in a glass bottle with a rollerball tip. The application is very easy and not messy. The rollerball helps in gentle massaging of the cuticles and nails. This product also has a strong lemongrass fragrance.  

Overall, I am very happy with the product. I would definitely repurchase it. Unless you dislike the strong lemongrass fragrance, this product is a decent buy. It is definitely a value for money though does not produce miraculous results.

Nykaa: E-Commerce Website/App Review

Has Nykaa Taken the Beauty World By Storm?

Nykaa is an Indian e-commerce website. It is an one stop destination for all your beauty and makeup needs.It has a comprehensive selection of makeup, skincare, hair care, beauty, health, bath and body care, styling, and grooming products of some of the choicest and premium brands.  It also has an app, which is available for a free download from Google Play. Both the Nykaa website and App provide an amazing shopping experience. They are 100% safe and genuine online shopping platforms.
The interface is very simple and user-friendly. The products are categorized logically for easy navigation. Though Nykaa specializes in cosmetics and skin care, they have a home store featuring home decors and furnishings, which I find a bit expensive
When it comes to the pricing of the skin care or makeup products, it’s festive time in Nykaa all through the year as one sale or the other is always on. You can seize a steal deal every time you visit it. Besides the deals and discounts, Nykaa also provides points if you make a purchase, write a product review, or refer a friend, which you can redeem on your next purchase. The pointing system is really cool as every 100 points that you earn equal 1 rupee. They also offer free shipping and cash on delivery for a minimum purchase of 500 rupees.

Nykaa has also gone an extra mile from being a mere retail platform to an information hub by dedicating a section for informative articles from its panel of experts, and interesting how-to videos from its beauty bloggers. So, you never come empty handed by visiting this website.
On the flip side,  Nykaa takes an inordinate amount of time for delivering the order if you buy during a sale. It lures the buyers by always flaunting the best deals, thereby making a big hole in your pockets🙂
Happy Beauty Shopping at Nykaa!
