Dabur Vatika Dandruff Guard review

They say, that there should be a balance in life, so it is only logical, that after a few rave reviews, I go with one which isn’t that ravy… I just want you to note, that you should really be careful picking the products, especially if/when you are making a transition towards natural, ecological ones. The fact, that it claims to be natural, or that it is sold on the website solely for natural products, wouldn’t guarantee that you will be 100% sure to buy the natural one, after all. But, how do they say, you learn from your own mistakes? I strongly advice you to learn from mine, and read/google the ingredients before you decide to get a certain product. My hair is in extreme need for some pampering, and I thought it might be good idea to give a natural mask a go, because just in couple of weeks I am planning on going all out, and re-dying my hair in crazy bright-color… editor note: that was total failure-since it didn’t turn out how i wanted...It wasn’t until i picked the product up from the post office, when I decided to read what’s on the back of the packaging. And even though, after the first glance there is nothing to suspicious about it, but my eye – oh the joy of having to read every label on every product in my and friends bathrooms – have caught something, called “white oil”. I believe that some people might just assume, that it is just some kind of oil,but I went ahead and googled. And guess what, is nothing else than a mineral oil. I won’t go into the deep discussions, what it is, and why it is not good for you, but I truly believe it shouldn’t be in the natural product..

And for the product itself, besides the fact that ingredients are turning me completely off, it is just in general blah. I hate the way it smells, I assume it is supposed to smell as lemons, but the smell is very superficial, the consistency is very annoying and it just does nothing for my hair. I have even contemplated throwing it away yesterday, but couldn’t fully judge my decision to do so, so it ended up in the deepest corner in my cabinet. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this to my friend or an enemy, for that matter 🙂 So, stay away! 🙂 I know its kind of short and abrupt, but I have nothing to say about it, sorry :(.


Confession, pledge, beauty ban, and some rambling, plus introducing Blogember

Hi girls,

I have so much to tell you, that I honestly have no idea where to start. There is not gonna be any reviews here, nor any fancy pictures, well, okay, maybe a little one to illustrate my reasoning. However, since my crafts/blogging/working room is being finally ready, I had an opportunity – or a neccessity, whichever one you like, to go through my collection, and had to make a conclusion, aka confession: I have too much. I don’t know why – most likely due to the same health issues, and attempts to uplift mood I was buying way too much in recent weeks. Somewhere between my twelth mascara and fifteenth hair care product I have decided – time to a project X pan and beauty ban for 90 days. So, yeah, I won’t be buying anymore beauty stuff up till the first of February. However, you will be seeing couple of hauls in coming days, since, as I already told you, I have been buying quite a lot.

And for those who don’t know, project x is quite close to a beauty ban, where instead of buying new stuff, you try to use up as much as possible, or the amount agreed with yourself, stuff you already own. So seeing how I have so much stuff to be used, it fits perfectly. However, don’t you worry that I won’t be blogging anymore,  I have so many lovely products in a line to be reviewed, so I will blog indeed, and even more than usual, since I seem to be on a challenge runs this month, I have decided to add one more to my list, and try to blog everyday. That”s where the ‘blogember” title comes from. If you watch youtube beauty or other personal channels videos, then you are most likely familiar with the terms ‘vlogtober’, ”vlogmas”, where people pledge to film everyday, so instead of filming, I will be posting. I hope I will be able to stick to this. And that is the photo proof, og having enough.. That is not all though (not to mention the e.l.f. order coming in.. Shhh!). Please forgive the sofa surroundings – that has been my work place in couple last days, the fall is not treating me nicely..And let me know if you want to see the category collection close ups, suchs as ‘masks, scrubs, lipproducts, mascaras, etc..’ And that is excluding my nail polishes…

Now let’s get to the pledge. As of the first of February I do pledge to buy only cruelty free beauty products, and as much as I can try to switch to the natural, organic skincare, haircare products, and if I can find the way how to get my hands on, make up products – I think Denmark is rather poor when it comes to the natural, organic make-up selection for reasonable prices, or I have looked in wrong places.  But thanks for all those lovely people for the Internet, I think I will be able to find a solution.  However, you will be seeing reviews on not so natural, and not so cruelty free items up till the 1st of February, since I haven’t really thought about it that much before. And getting rid of them all would just be a waste, and toxicating environment. But from now on, I will point out which items are cruelty free and which aren’t. And here is a photo proof, that I really mean it, I did notice a lack of information, or lack of self-education, what comes to the ingredients in my used products, so I will be catching up on some knowledge gaps.

I am somewhere in the 30th page of no more dirty looks, and so far I love the writing style. Took it with me on my as much as I could natural bath yesterday, and managed to spend there double amount of time when I usually do. That turned a boring Friday evening to a blast. And I think i might have found a secret to naturally waved hair, but that needs to be tested couple more times to be proven truth. Have a fantastic Saturday and come back for more posts tomorrow!
