Seven Awesome Looks for Halloween 2011

Happy Halloween Everybody!!.

As you all know today is Halloween. Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31, which commonly includes activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.

Halloween is a holiday with ancient roots that had a much greater meaning than the boisterous, costume-filled holiday that we know today. Around 2,000 years ago, the Celts, who lived in what is now the United Kingdom, Ireland, and northern France, had a festival commemorating the end of the year. Their New Year was November 1, and this festival was called Samhain, pronounced sow-en. The end of their year signaled the end of summer, the end of the harvest season, and the beginning of a long, hard winter that often caused many deaths of animals and people. Weaker livestock were often killed and eaten during this holiday, since most likely, they would not survive the winter anyway. Because of this, and the cruel winter to come, this time of year signified death to the Pagan Celtics. They believed the night before the New Year, that the wall between the living and the dead was open, allowing spirits of the dead, both good and bad, to mingle among the living. Some of these spirits were thought to possess living people, cause trouble, ruin crops, or to search for passage to the afterlife.

Samhain was considered a magical holiday, and there are many stories about what the Celtics practiced and believed during this festival. Some say the spirits that were unleashed were those that had died in that year, and offerings of food and drink were left to aid the spirits, or to ward them away. Other versions say the Celts dressed up in outlandish costumes and roamed the neighborhoods making noise to scare the spirits away. Many thought they could predict the future and communicate with spirits as well during this time.

Shatter This Diwali with OPI GOLD SHATTER!!

All those women who are planning to get a nail art done this Diwali can also try this at home and at half the cost. Try shatter range from O.P.I. They have recently launched Gold Shatter Nail lacquer which creates shatter metallic look on nails which is great for evenings and celebrations!
Gold shatter by O.P.I (15ml -0.5fl OZ) is available for $8 in the U.S and is the hottest sensation in nail art. O.P.I Shatter is not available in India right now but is easily available on eBay and you can get it delivered straight to your doorstep. Shatter nail polish trend  has still not started in India probably because there are only three well known branded companies like O.P.I, Sally Hansen & China glaze which deal with Crackle Nail lacquer and are yet to launch in India. Rest are some local brands which are cheaper to purchase. None of them are available in India.

You can find some Crackle Nail polishes at Kunchals GK-I, M-Block by the name of OOPLA for Rs 350/- per pack or you can get a crackle look done at any nail bar for Rs 500/- per sitting which becomes a very costly affair! So, it is better to purchase some of your favourite shatter shades from eBay.

1.       Apply one thin coat of shatter nail lacquer on one coat of completely dry nail lacquer of any brand for a stylish shatter effect.
2.       Shatter nail polish dries as soon as you apply it on a base coat and starts cracking by itself you don’t have to do a thing just wait and watch how beautiful your nails start looking!

So go ahead and shatter this Diwali!!

Price Varies: $4 - $6.25  Per shatter Nail Lacquer
Availability: for shatter Nail Lacquer or you can purchase OPI from for 520/- INR

SebaMed Clear face Care Gel P.H. 5.5 Review

Seba med claims that Clear face Care Gel is a moisturizing gel against pimples, blackheads and blemishes with a P.H. Value of 5.5 and also combats pimples, blackheads and skin impurities”

I have been using this product more than a month now and it has shown visible results. The clear face gel is light weight, non greasy  gel which gets easily absorbed by skin and not only it dried up the pimples I already had but also made sure that I don’t have any further breakouts and I use this gel in combination with SebaMed clear face antibacterial cleansing foam.  Seba Med actually made my skin glow with Joy!. After application of this gel I apply Neutrogena dry touch sunscreen 50+ In the day time to protect my skin from the harsh rays of the sun.

The advantage of this product over other acne fighting gels/creams

  • Light weight, Non greasy easily absorbed by skin.
  • Does not sting.
  • Panthenol supports healing of the acne.
  • Hyaluronic acid increases the moisturization of the skin.
  • Aloe soothes the skin.
  • The P.H. value of 5.5 protects and provides biological protection against acne bacteria.
  • Allantoin removes scaly skin
  • NO OIL
  • Water Based 
  • 100% Bio-Degeradable

I totally agree with what Sebamed's claim and highly recommend it for women who have very sensitive and acne prone skin. This a revolutionary product that should not be missed!.

Cruelty Update 12/01/2012: Since Neutrogena tests on animals I have stopped using their Sunscreen. Now I use Lotus Herbals Sunscreen Matte Gel SPF 50++; Another good option is SebaMed Sunscreen Lotion SPF50++ Free from Parabens.

A Swatch of SebaMed Clearface Clear Gel looks like fresh dew drops to me :)

Water, Aloe barbadensis leaf gel, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Pantenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Sodium Carbomer, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid.

Price:  500 INR/ $19.99 U.S.

Availability:  Your friendly drugstore or visit for India.
