Hi Bellezas!
Today I am going to do my first product review. And the first lucky (lol) product is Matrix Bioalge Color Care Therapie Shampoo.


The first look: It is a shampoo for moisturization and protection of your color treated hair. The product claimed that it is specially formulated with ultra-mild cleanser and a citrus revitalize to clear away dulling residue and help reveal brighter color and shine. So, hair color stays true while leaving hair soft, shiny and manageable. The cost of a 200 ml bottle is around Rs 190.



How to apply:  Apply to wet hair and lather with a gentle massaging motion. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with Biolage Color Care Conditioner.

Ingredients:



In action:  
  • ·         Best color care shampoo I ever use.
  • ·         texture is creamy and smells great
  • ·         good enough for everyday use
  • ·         leaves hair soft and silky
  • ·         my hair is very oily but using this hair stays oil free for 2 days
  • ·         flip flop container is travel friendly
  • ·         200 ml bottle stays for near about 2 months if you use thrice a week.

There are no cons of this shampoo. Love every single bit of it. <3

The verdict: Strongly recommend this. This is a solid, salon quality shampoo for a great price. Your color will not fade and your hair won't get junked up with residue. Will re-purchase it again & again.


What do you guys think? Have you guys tried Matrix Biolage Color Care before? What are your thoughts?

Much love,
Hi Bellezas!

Hello Bellezas!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this year. As for me I went to New York City with my hubby and couple of friends. And we all know that Christmas celebration in NYC is the craziest thing ever! J
One of my friends Sonali suggests me to do a blog post on my Christmas Look. So here it is J

Hi Bellezas! Today I am going to share with you my favorite home made beauty recipe. This is especially for winter season. As the weather turned colder and drier, we need to take good care of our skin. Ingredients like Honey can do magic for your skin. Check out this homemade recipe for healing your dryness!



Ingredients:
2 teaspoon warm honey
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoon olive oil

In a bowl mix all ingredients into a creamy thick texture and apply all over your face and neck. Relax and lie down for 20 minutes and then wash off with luke warm water. And yes, please moisturize afterwards.

This face pack works just wonder for you! Honey has natural antioxidant and anti aging properties. Egg yolk has vitamin A that has retinoid or Retin A which is used to help skin shedding, regulate the amount of skin produced, stops pores from clogging. And Olive oil is a natural moisturizer. Use this mask twice a week for smooth silky skin. Oh yes, this mask is great for all skin types.


What is your favorite winter care face mask? Let me know!! :-)






Hello ladies? Again we are near to party season. Yes I am talking about Christmas and New Year. So this is the perfect time to treat you like a princess!! <3

But with so many to choose from, it’s difficult to start off.

Let, Bong’s Belleza take the initiative for you!! ;)

Christmas dresses can be as bold and bright or as subtle and simple as you want. But, this season one fashion trend that seems to be emerging online and in stores throughout is metallic. Bronze gold, warm copper, pewter, foil shine silvers and gold- all these color is very much in this season. 



If you are unsure if your dress should be casual or formal, a little black dress always does the trick. You can team your LBD with a gold clutch or a gold pump shoe and we are sure that spotlight will be set upon you! 



This is December end, so a long coat with faux fur hood is just perfect for this winter night. The faux far at the neckline catches the eye and the fitted shape pulls in the waist to create an hourglass silhouette. 


If you ever want to splurge and treat yourself to something luxurious and pricey, the leather jacket is definitely the item to do it with because you'll wear it for years. Want to add a little glam to a leather jacket? Start with gray (softer than black) and add a shearling collar (detachable, in case in you want to remove it.) This Gap leather jacket has a slim silhouette and hits at the waist. 


Suede boots are perfect for this season. Slip on the black suede boots over a pair of your favorite skinny jeans and you are good to go. For an updated look, try the fringed booties. 


Now jazz up your party dress with some bright color. Go funky with feather extensions on your hair or just a messy bun with a clip on flower. Experiment with colors like Red or Ruby on your lip and reciprocate it with a smokey eye.



That’s it. – You are all set to add sparkle to your Holidays! :-)
















Hi Guys, it’s almost 2 months I have not posted anything on my blog. Actually it was snowing terribly in Connecticut on Oct last and then there was a huge power cut here. No heat, no power, no food, no water….all you can say it was totally a mess. After that I was quite busy for my First Thanks Giving!! Shopped like mad you know : D…and I will update you later about that !! :)
Last week, again I went to mall for nothing but ended with a huge B&B fragrance mist!! :D:D:D
Yesss, here it is :)
I am a diehard B&B fan and so, I just could not resist seeing the sale which was going that day!
Bath & Body Works was having a Semi-Annual sale; I got everything pictured above - over a $45 value - for just $30 out of pocket.


Also got two gift coupons along with it - check these below. Isn't it great ?



Below one is my favorite, Twilight Woods. Using it since last Oct and fragrance is just amazing !!!!  :)
What is your favorite B&B fragrance??? Let me know !!



Yes, Diwali ( and winter ) is just around the corner, and that means this is the time of rangoli,fireworks, pollutions, junk foods and break out.We love Diwali, but we love beautiful skin more. Here are some quick tips on how to celebrate Diwali and still have perfect skin going into the festive moods.





  • Wash off ! Whatever you do, no matter how tired you are when you come in after your Diwali party or gathering, be sure to wash off your makeup! make up can clog pores to cause acne breakouts or to give you a dull look to your skin in the days that follow. Use a good skin cleanser, may be a soft soap or face wash .Also a good quality eye make up remover is a must have this season. You can use Neutrogena or simple almond/olive oil.
  • Be Product Wise!  You’re going to add mounds of mascara, eye liner, foundation, lip color, pigments to get your festive look. Check the products you buy and be careful to read the fine lines- ingredients, allergic responses and contraindications. Bottom-line, looking great for one night isn’t worth it if you end up damaging your skin for months afterwards.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! It will certainly be likely that you will not be eating your normal diet around these days. It will be even more likely that you will be eating and drinking all kinds of things that aren’t on the list of “the ideal healthy diet for beautiful skin from the inside out.” Make sure you get enough water and also limit your sweet intake .
  • Moisturize Before Applying Makeup! Not only will a good moisturizer help to work against some of the bad effects of makeup ( and also dirt and pollution), it will also mean that your makeup stays on your face better and has a more finished look. Also before crawling into bed, be sure to moisturize your skin again so you wake up refreshed and replenished. Try a moisturizer with Vitamin E for maximum nourishment of your skin.
  • Exfoliate After Removing Makeup! If your regular skin care routine doesn’t include an exfoliating treatment of some kind, make sure you use one on and after Diwali night. You’ll not only make sure that the last traces of molecules of dirt and smoke are gone, it’ll remove dead skin cells that were damaged by the makeup, too. If you want to make exfoliating a real treat, try St Ives apricot scrub. You can also go natural with besan and milk mask.


Wish you all a happy and safe Diwali !!
Enjoy :-) :-)
