Ever since the Covid-19 situation has hit us hard, I believe there are more consumers of hand creams than ever in this country. Washing your hands with soap and water repeatedly and moreover, excessive use of alcohol-based products are definitely as harmful to the skin as they are good for our overall health. So, a hand cream has become a must in your daily lives. It must have taken a permanent position in most of our nightstands. Hand creams are undoubtedly the best you can do to pamper your hands but, what if I tell you about a product that not only moisturizes your hands but also fights germs and works as a sanitizer? I am talking about the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer. Today, I will be reviewing their Lavender variant.

Dot & Key Lavender Hand cream and Sanitizer is a great moisturizer for dry hands that also soothes and kills 99.9% germs with its unique alcohol-free formula. 

Before starting with the review, let me share some information on sanitizers especially keeping the Novel Coronavirus in mind which will be helpful for you to understand the efficacy of this product. Since most of you might be here to know whether or not this hand cream/ sanitizer will effectively fight coronavirus or not, please read this part carefully.

Can Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizers kill Coronavirus?

By now, all of us know a sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol content works best to kill the Novel Coronavirus but does an alcohol-free sanitizer do the job? Well, alcohol-free sanitizers contain a special ingredient called benzalkonium chloride which is a quaternary ammonium compound and it is a conventional antimicrobial commonly used in ophthalmic preparations such as eye drops and lens solutions as a preservative. It is also used as antiseptic and disinfectant in a higher concentrated form. Benzalkonium Chloride is a detergent that denatures proteins and causes lysis of cytoplasmic membranes and is, therefore, a potent broad-spectrum antiseptic. Which pretty much sums up that it has the ability to kill Coronavirus but definitely not as effective as a soap or isopropyl alcohol, ethanol or n-propanol.

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender Review | Cherry On Top

Price- ₹ 395/- for 50ml

Buy Here- Nykaa, Amazon, Dot & Key website

Packaging-

Dot & Key Hand cream comes in a cute plastic tube and a black screw-on cap pretty similar to L’Occitane or Boroline tubes. The colour of the tube is correspondent to the fragrance or variant. For example, the Lavender variant comes in a soft lavender-coloured tube. 

All the information including the MRP, Mfg date, batch number and the complete ingredients list is mentioned on the tube itself. The tube comes in a cardboard packaging that is completely pastic-free.

Description-

If you’ve ever sanitized your hands and cringed at how dry they become, you’re not alone. The good thing is, they’ll never feel that way again – not with Dot & Key Hand Cream doing double duty as hand sanitizer and moisturizer. Its active ingredients kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free sanitizer formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process. Even better, the jojoba and shea actives it contains intensely nourish your hands so they feel soft and supple.
Infused with calming lavender and zesty peppermint essential oils, it leaves behind a delicately pleasing fragrance, even as it cleanses and hydrates. With its pocket-friendly size, it’s the perfect go-to for pure, baby-soft hands on the go. All Dot & Key products are dermatologist tested and 100% skin safe, Cruelty-Free, Vegetarian Friendly and free of nasty chemicals like Parabens, Alcohol, PABA, Phthalates & Sulphates. We assure safe, gentle and effective skincare.

Key Ingredients:

Non-Alcohol Sanitizer Actives: Contains active antibacterial ingredients like benzethonium chloride which kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process.

Shea Butter: An excellent moisturizer, its fat content is responsible for its emollient and humectant properties. It locks in the moisture and keeps skin hydrated for long. Helps soften the skin on hands and feet too.

Texture-

This product has a lotion-like texture- not too thick, not too runny. This texture helps it get absorbed into the skin quite fast and effectively. It provides enough moisture to your hands than any other lotion would do.

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer Review

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender Review | Cherry On Top

My experience with Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender & Peppermint has been great. I use it as a hand cream as it gives intense hydration to dry hands. Also, the light texture of this cream allows you to penetrate deep into the skin, providing it with nourishment that it requires and at the same time, it does not feel sticky or oily. 

I am not quite sure if I would recommend you this as a hand sanitizer because this is a time we should not take any risks. If you are looking for a product solely for sanitizing your hands, you should go for something that has 60% or 70% alcohol in it because that will be most effective. However, the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer would be a good option for sanitizing your hands if you are at home and want to do your makeup or skincare with sanitized hands.

Although I love the formula so much and considering the fact that you require a very little amount of product for both your hands, I still feel it is quite expensive for a 50ml tube. 

What is your favourite hand cream at the moment?

Since the season of dryness and roughness has come, I have started taking more care of my skin nowadays. My skincare essentially consists of three primary things, cleansing, toning and moisturizing. These are the three steps I never skip on. Another thing that is very important for me is a good exfoliator. I usually like to scrub my face twice a week but I feel these days that is not enough. So, I switched on to a more powerful exfoliant than my usual one. Today, I’ll be talking about my recent favourite Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub.

Price- ₹845 for 30g
Available on- Flipkart and Vanya Herbals Website

About Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub

Pomegranate Face Scrub is a deeply nourishing blend of pomegranate peel, orange peel, milk powder, and natural cane sugar. It uniquely formulated to resist acne and oxidation while gently exfoliating and hydrating skin.

Ingredients-

Pomegranate peel – Pomegranate peel is rich in antioxidants, Vitamins, minerals, that provides the necessary nutrition to the skin. It also works as a natural sunblock, astringent, anti-ageing agent, and UV protector.
Orange Peel- This citrus fruit contains vitamin C and acts as a natural astringent which helps you to fight with various skin problems.
Natural Cane Sugar – Naturally exfoliates dead skin and is said to fight against toxins and prevent ageing of the skin.
Milk Powder – Gently helps in skin rejuvenation, cleansing and hydration. It gives a youthful glow and smooth skin.
Mandarin oil – is added for good aroma to the scrub. It also adds to the cleansing & rejuvenating properties of the scrub.
Bergamot Oil – it is one of the commonly used ingredients in aromatherapy. It’s aromatic & soothing. It has anti-acne properties.

Packaging-

The Anaarshine scrub comes in a metallic jar with a screw lid. The packaging is definitely not hygienic. You’ll have to use a wooden spatula to be safe. This, on the other hand, is completely spillproof and thus very travel-friendly.

How to Use-

Damp your face first. Take a dollop of the scrub, mix it with some rose water or plain water and apply by massaging it in a circular motion on the face and neck. Wash off with water and pat dry your face. It is recommended to use this scrub once or twice a week.

Texture & Consistency-

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of the scrub is quite granulated. The good thing is that the granules are very gentle on the skin. The consistency of it is very sticky and concentrated. It’s not a cream, nor a gel but it is quite comparable to the consistency of jaggery. It is not at all sticky on the face once you add water to it. It also does not make your skin greasy.

My Experience-

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

I am a fan of scrubs that are gritty but not harsh on the skin. Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub is exactly how I like it to be. The scrub looks very gritty in the jar but when you apply it feels smooth and very gentle on the face. Being a very mild scrub, it can be used daily.

The product might seem quite expensive for the amount you get but it is in a highly concentrated form as mentioned earlier so you’ll need a very little amount to scrub you entire face a neck. You just need to dilute it with some water and you’ll get enough product to use at a time.

Using this scrub daily will bring some glow to your face and it will appear brighter. My final verdict is that Vanya Anaarshine scrub effectively scrubs off the dead cells on your facial skin and also it is hydrating, it does not cause stretchy or irritated skin.

Have you used anything from Vanya Herbals yet? What are your thoughts?

Hi, guys! Hope you all are doing great. It’s been long since I have posted anything about my recent skincare discoveries and that is not okay as I have always shared my new finds with you. Today, I’ll be talking about the Nature Sure Olive Oil and the countless olive oil benefits for skin and hair. Recently, I have started adding different oils to my skincare and haircare regime and I feel it is one of the best changes I have ever made in my life. Olive oil is one of the first oils to be introduced to my routines. I am going to tell you what to expect from olive oil and how it has benefitted me.

Olive Oil is a plant-based oil, derived from olives thus it is completely vegan. It is mostly and popularly used in cooking and as salad dressings and is considered the most nutritional and healthy oil, but it has various other benefits too.

Olive Oil for Skin

There are various proven skin benefits of olive oil and today I’ll be talking about those that have worked magic for me.

Moisturizes Skin-

Olive oil can be used as a great moisturizer for dry skin. If you have dry facial skin and body, massage olive oil before going to sleep or before you take shower. Wash with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer. I was suffering from severe dry patches around my mouth and using Nature Sure Rogan Jaitun Tel religiously for a couple of weeks helped me cure those. It does not only moisturizes your skin but also gives a healthy glow to it. It also gently exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells.

Anti-ageing Benefits-

Olive oil is rich in various antioxidants and Vitamin E which protects the skin by limiting the production of free radicals and that eventually delays skin ageing.

Acts as Makeup Remover-

Oils are the most amazing makeup remover. I have recently discovered my love for olive oil and coconut oil when it comes to makeup removers. Earlier, I used to freak out thinking about applying oil to my face but I now have realised that it is very easy to completely wash off the oil from your face post-application. Oils, especially olive and coconut removes waterproof makeup very effectively without irritating your skin or your eyes. After you are done with removing your makeup, you can either wash your face with a mild cleanser or you can use a cloth soaked in warm water to gently give your skin a rinse. The former is for oily/combination skin people and the latter is for dry skin girls.

Olive Oil for Hair

Olive oil is great for your hair as well. It can be used in many ways to benefit your hair and scalp.

Anti-dandruff-

You can use olive oil to get rid of your dandruff and itchy scalp. A massage with olive oil mixed with some lemon juice can keep dandruff at bay and also it will clear out existing dandruff. You can do this twice a week if you have severe and recurring dandruff issue.

Smooth Hair-

Olive oil can be used as a base for different hair masks and it can also be used on its own. A regular massage with olive oil will promote hair growth, will make the hair smooth and soft and at the same time, it will add shine to the hair. Vitamin E in olive oil boosts healthy hair growth.

Disclaimer- The brand was kind enough to send the product to me in exchange for an honest review.

The most popular full lace and front human hair wigs, they are very popular and selling well whether online or on offline shops. Lace front wig is typically worn by women, it has lace mesh base at the front area where is hairline, the rest of the wig mainly made of hair wefts and there is not wig cap base at all. A full lace wig can be worn in a high ponytail and whole full lace wig cap was made with many types of lace base material. the lace base commonly used include french lace,swiss lace,stretch lace,monofilament lace(#3 lace),etc. there are adjustable straps at the back of cap of lace front wig that can be adjusted the size of the cap when you want the wig more suitable and wants to feel comfortable.

Style your natural hair, as usual, would wear it with lace front wigs. That may include braiding it or slicking it down. Remember that the bulkiness of your natural hair will affect your lace front wig fits well.

Secure your hair with a stocking cap or wig liner. This is to create a flat surface so that you can attach the lace front wig for better fitting.

Place the wig on your head to check where the hairline goes. When the lace front wig is in the position you want, compare which side is too small or too big. sometimes it’s caps may be larger from the crown area, back of your head or around the ears.

Remove the wig from your head and turn it’s inside out, then you can check the wig cap carefully.

Lift the ribbon below the ear tabs that runs from bottom to top and fold it over. Sew the ribbon to the wig cap with a needle and thread that matches the colour of the wig cap. Put the wig back on your head to determine if it fits accurately. If the wig fits good, you are done. If the lace front wig is still too large, you can adjust the straps at the back of the wig cap to make the circumference of cap smaller.

Continue in this manner until your lace front wigs are as small as what you need. Make sure to leave enough room to accommodate the normal motion of your head.

Since high-quality front lace wigs can cost around 100 dollars(if you purchase from our site), you need to have your lace front wigs made smaller by a professional stylist if you are not sure if you can manage it or not.

There has been a lot of mishap with hair extensions recorded in the past that might have disheartened a number of women but the secret really lies in the factors given below. You can achieve a natural look and make them blend seamlessly with your own hair. Whether its a straight or curly clip in hair extensions you can executive a perfect get up just mind these 4 hair extensions rule.

Find a perfect match to your hair colour

A simple rule that has a lot of common sense into it. If you aim for your extensions to look like your own then you’ll have to find the hair tone which closely matches your own. Although I must say a shade lighter or darker than your hair can also be a good enough match but the application will have to make it appear like a high or lowlights. Rule of thumb in looking for your right tone, use the ends of your hair as a gauge in looking for the right shade.

Always choose 100% Remy human hair

Nothing looks more natural than using human hair for your hair extensions from hair vendors. Not only does it look like your own hair it is the best hair quality than synthetic hair. Aside from looking natural, you can also enjoy styling it the way you normally do with your own hair. It would be desirable to choose straight extensions if you have straight hair and likewise with curly, or wavy hair.

Technique and proper application is vital

Remember the hair extensions malfunctions I was telling you earlier? This is the main reason why it happens, they were not properly installed to your hair. Different methods have different ways to apply and it can be done only by a professional hairdresser. Clip in hair extensions, on the other hand, is one of the easiest to install. It can be done in the comfort of your home. Just follow step by step guide in youtube to get it done properly.

Style it, make it look your own

Cut and style the extensions after it has been installed to make it seem like your own hair. This job can be best done by a professional hairstylist as they have been trained to this. Trust me you would look impeccably natural.

Hello, everyone! I am back with yet another review. Today, I am going to review and swatch all three shades of the brand new Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons. Recently, Nivea has released its first affordable lip crayons range in India and they sent the entire collection that comprises of three shades of lip crayons to me to review and share with you guys. So, let’s start with the review-

Packaging-

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons come in regular plastic lip crayon packaging. It is a fat, twist-up pencil with a transparent lid. Although the tip of the crayon still remains outside even after twisting the crayon down till the end which can damage the tip if you are inattentive while putting the lid on. What I liked about their packaging is that each crayon is colour-coded and also the transparent lids make it easier for you to pick your desired colour in a hurry.

My Experience with Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons-

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

If you are following me for a long time you’d know that I am obsessed with lip balms. I hate the feeling of chapped lips and I cannot step out of the house without moisturizing my lips. For daily use, I prefer tinted lip balms that protect my lips also give me some sort of colour to the lips. I cannot leave my house in bare lips. Mostly, I am into lipsticks but sometimes you just want to ditch the lipsticks and go for something natural-looking.

When I received the Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons, I was beyond happy because I found what I was looking for quite some time now. These crayons are insanely pigmented and oh-so hydrating. The longevity of these crayons is not very bad considering they are very soft and sheeny. The texture of these crayons is very smooth and creamy so that they don’t accentuate the creases on your lips. The crayons literally glide on your lips. You can lessen the shine by dabbing a tissue onto your lips or by applying some translucent powder on top. I like them as they are. These are also transferable. The colour fades to the edges after a meal, but they provide long-lasting moisture. Even after the colour is gone, your lips are hydrated. You can always reapply these whenever necessary.

Overall, these tinted lip balms are a must-try if you are looking for something like these within budget. I am very happy with the shades and the colour payoff. The moisture they provide is very satisfying.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always in search of new products to try out. For me, skincare has always been way more essential than makeup. I might now pick up the hottest lipstick or highlighter, but I’m always eager to explore new skincare launches. So, when I saw Nykaa came up with its own Korean sheet masks- Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask with some desi ingredients, I cannot hold my excitement. There was a two-for-two offer going on pre-ordering the sheets, so I got four of them. I am going to review the Gooseberry + Papaya for Nourished + Brightened Skin sheet mask today.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always looking for new skincare and makeup products to try and review on my blog for my readers. Recently, it has been 80% skincare and 20% makeup which I am really enjoying because as they say, the more flawless the canvas the prettier the painting (Ahem, I just invented it). Anyway, recently I saw some very interesting stuff launched by Nykaa. They launched their very own Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Masks. The sheet masks weren’t the interesting part but their desi ingredients were. I love how they have merged India and Korea in such a fancy way. All the ingredients used in these sheet masks are 100% originated from India and made to target specific skin concerns. Today, I am reviewing two of their 11 variants- Gooseberry+Papaya and Pear+Hyaluronic Acid

Price– ₹ 100 (Buy here)

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask range is powered with two hero ingredients in each mask. They have launched a collection of total 11 sheet masks focusing on Indian skin and their problems.

Product Description

Carefully chosen, we bring you 11 variants that are specially made to target all your skin concerns. Tucked away in our grandma’s diaries, these ingredients are humble yet potent. Passed on from generations to generations, they have never ceased to mark their vitality even in the modern world. Now, we have brought to you the most-precious beauty secrets in the form of our Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet masks.

Why Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet mask?

  • Dual ingredients for dual benefits.
  • Exquisite Indian origin ingredients for maximum benefits.
  • Each variant caters directly to all targeted skin concerns.
  • Benefit-driven to ease the consumer purchase.

How to Use-

Unfold and lay over on clean and toned skin. Relax for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask and gently pat the excess serum onto your skin, until fully absorbed. Massage for good blood circulation that results in a healthy glow.

My Experience with Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Range-

Now, let me tell you what I honestly feel about this particular range of sheet masks.

Packaging- The packaging is very nicely and meticulously done. An image of the key ingredients of the corresponding masks is printed on the packaging itself. Also, the name of the ingredients and the effects of the mask is also written boldly on the pack. So, the user is completely aware of what they are putting on their face and there is no room for confusions.

Fitting- The fitting of these sheets masks is what makes it my favourite. The holes are made keeping Indian face shapes in mind. A difficulty that I face with most of the Korean sheet masks is that the holes for the eyes are not wide enough to fit me. But Nykaa’s sheet masks have bigger eye holes so that they fit people with bigger eyes.

Consistency of the Serum/Essence- I have never used a sheet mask before that doesn’t come with a thick, hard-to-absorb serum/essence. My experience with Nykaa Sheet Masks was outstanding because the Nykaa face sheet masks are soaked in a serum that is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. The essence does not make my skin oily, it just adds the right amount of moisture.

The 11 variants of the Nykaa Face Sheet Masks are-

  1. Gooseberry + Papaya (for Nourished + Brightened skin)
  2. Almond + Yogurt (for Revitalized + Nourished skin)
  3. Tea Tree + Aloe Vera (for Clear + Moisturized skin)
  4. Black Mud + Aloe Vera (for Purified + Hydrated skin)
  5. Rice + Camelia (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  6. Rose + Goat Milk (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  7. Lemon + Honey (for Lightened + Glowing skin)
  8. Avocado + Moringa (for Nourished + Hydrated skin)
  9. Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid (for Firm + Brightened skin)
  10. Charcoal + Bamboo (for Purified + Nourished skin)
  11. Turmeric + Coconut (for Revitalized + Radiant skin)

I bought 4 from the list- #1, #7, #9 and #11. I will review #1 Gooseberry + Papaya Face Sheet Mask and #9 Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask today.

Efficacy-

From my childhood, I have been told numerous benefits of natural ingredients by my mother. She is all about DIYs. I remember she used to make a papaya mask for face and an amla concoction for the hair. I have seen papaya doing wonders for my face. It adds a healthy, natural glow to your face instantly.

I think this particular mask is very average when it comes to the results. I have not seen any visible or drastic change in my skin except for it made it really nourished and clean in a way. I have not seen any of my spots getting faded or skin clarity. Maybe with regular use, it can work on that front.

Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Hyaluronate (25ppm), Ethylhexyglycerin, Xanthan Gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Pearl Extract (50 ppm), Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Efficacy-

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid does what it claims. I could feel my skin a bit firmer after the use. It might not make you fairer (because you know that’s not possible!) but definitely would brighten up your face a lot. The serum penetrates into the skin very quickly giving it the proper amount of hydration. This mask is a great option to get an instant pick-me-up before any party or occasion.


Overall, I loved both the masks for the instant glow that they provide. These masks are nothing extraordinary so don’t expect them to completely change your skincare game. These are only for ₹100 thus you can definitely give these a shot. There is a ‘buy 5 get 3 free‘ offer going on on these right now. So, it could be a great opportunity to stock them up or give them a try.

Skincare and haircare start way early in our lives even before we realise its benefits. Since our childhood, we have seen our moms and grandmoms oiling our hair, sometimes with added herbs and seeds, on a day to day basis. When I was younger, my mom made sure she oils my hair at least three times a week and I absolutely hated the idea. I used to hate greasy hair. But, eventually, it turned out to be so beneficial for my hair. Everyone around me, or on the internet, compliments my hair and asks me the secret. It has always been half my mother’s care and affection towards my hair and half the blessings of nature. Sometimes my mom and grandmom used to soak methi seeds or kalonji seeds to the hair oil overnight to make the oil even more efficacious. Recently, Nihar Naturals, one of India’s leading wellness brand has come up with a new hair oil called Nihar Extra Care which follows the century-old traditional theory of soaking different seeds in the hair-oil. I couldn’t be happier!

Last month, the entire Nihar Naturals team along with their Brand Ambassador, Vidya Balan, came down to Kolkata to launch their new product i.e. Nihar Extra Care hair oil in front of some of the city bloggers. I was one of them and I got to know about the brand and the new launch minutely.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is actually a coconut oil that dispenses through a mix of five different types of seeds when you try to take it out. In the next picture, you’ll get a clear idea. The seeds they have used are Methi, Sarson, Kalonji, Lauki and Til. Together with the coconut oil, they claim to nourish your hair, strengthen it and arrest hair fall. The base oil is coconut oil which alone has multiple hair care properties.

Benefits of the seeds-

The oil is packed with five types of seeds and every seed has a unique property. Let’s know more-

Methi- Strengthens hair and reduces hair fall.

Sarson- Helps hair growth and conditions hair.

Kalonji- Nourishes hair follicle and reduces hair fall.

Lauki- Reduces hair fall.

Til- Promotes hair growth.

How the Nihar Extra Care hair oil works-

1. Tilt & squeeze to bring the oil to the cap.

2. Soak to let the oil mix with the seeds.

3. Pour & use as desired. Apply from root to tip of your hair.

Basically, Nihar Extra Care hair oil gives you the same benefits as hair oil soaked with different seeds just like the traditional recipe but in a more hassle-free way. You don’t need to think about doing all of it together. Nihar has taken care of everything so they have done the packaging in a way that it can be used by today’s women who have no time to pamper themselves.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is priced at ₹119 for 200ml.
