Inglot BP Eye Lash Curler - Review

First of all, thank you so much for bearing with me while I was underground in the last few weeks. I just wasn't in the mood to write.

Moving on....

The Inglot BP Eye Lash Curler..

It claims: nada...

Price: Rs. 240/- for a single piece. An extra rubber pad has been provided for in the unit itself at the bottom.

Availability: in store or online at majorbrands.com

What I liked: 

1. I have a morbid fear of the metal eyelash curler. It really looks like a medieval instrument of torture to me. And as I see it approaching my eyes, I can hear the soundtrack of "Psycho" playing in my head. Hence for the longest time I have relied on curling mascaras to do the trick. This is a god-sent for me. It doesn't scare me one bit, and it is very, very gentle. I suspect anyone else who has the same irrational fear as me can easily work with this.


2. It does curl eyelashes, at least it does curl mines. You just have to hold for 30 seconds at least.

3. A replacement pad is provided.

4. I love the price :-)

5. It is really tiny & shuts close to fit snugly into your kit/purse. Although I don't recommend curling lashes that already have dried mascara on them. They tend to be stiff and can break off.

What could be better: 

1. A instruction paper with it would have been nice, it took me 30 minutes to figure out how to use it.

2. A bit of my eyemakeup always tends to transfer onto the plastic bit that rests on my top lid. Nothing major, but I don't like it.

3. I can't compare it with the metal ones. I really don't know if it is better or worse off. But the curl does droop off after 30 minutes. You want it to stay? Use a mascara pronto and use it from the underside of the lashes to as to not droop them down again.

4. It is very difficult to curl the lashes on the outer corner as the curve to this is very less.

Would I re-purchase: Do I have a choice? This is the only plastic curler I know of, and the other alternative is to walk around with uncurled lashes.

  1. thanks review tanveer!I have always been intrigued by such eye lash curler my only concern has been..how is the grip/holding thing between thumb and fingers..are there any chances that it might slip while curling the lashes?

  4. My vega ine does a real nice job. but then, I am always scared of damaging my lashes.
    This one looks scary, but the idea od a non-metal sounds good.

  5. Though this looks non scary, but 30 seconds to hold eye lashes is quite much. The metal ones are supposed to be held for 10 secs is what an SA told me when I first bought my metal curler.

    1. Yes, the metal ones work faster and plus they can be heated also before use. This is no replacement for that... I'm just unable to use that so I make do with this :)

  7. I'm scared of eyelash curlers too! I'm scared of MUAs using them on me. So using one myself is out of the question. But this one doesnt look all that scary. But it really should come with instructions!

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
