Race Uphill Chasing Whiteness? (Think Again!)


I was watching DNA on Zee News and the news of whitening creams containing mercury was quite a setback for me. Not because of the shocking revelation, but for the fact that India, being a nation of golden skin tone, is blindly running to attain fairness. The demand of white skin has risen to such an extent that even though the colonizer had long back decided to move out, we ourselves have been propagating ideas of discrimination within our co- citizens. Log onto any matrimonial website, and if you aren’t asked about your colour, then I’d say you are definitely lucky. When we were searching for a bridegroom for my sister, trust me, each guy or his parents desire to have a fair bride. Ask them why; perhaps because they have been endowed with beliefs that fairness is equal to beauty. 


The word pretty, gorgeous or attractive are meant exclusively for outer form, but the word BEAUTIFUL transgresses the physical and goes skin deep to depict the real you. I believe wheatish and olive skin tone is so beautiful that it does not need to be changed. For that matter, if I’d be given a chance to exchange my complexion, I’d want it golden wheatish rather than white! Beauty is when you smile, when you can make others smile and the most essential part, to be who you really are. The first step to appear beautiful is to accept that all beings are born with various features, colours, skin type & hair type and you are beautiful the way you are and no freaking god dammit has the right to make you feel inferior due to rampant colour biases that exist in almost every part of the world. A man, upon falling, can only rise up if he chooses to. If he feels I just can’t get up, my friend for your licence test, I can’t take the steering in my hands. You yourself can make or break it. If you want to see the change within people’s eyes, begin with that slight alteration within you. 


Yes, being a beauty blogger, we do use makeup. But our goal has never been to alter our skin tones but merely to enhance our features for boosting confidence. Being born in Indian society, I do not say for all, but yes I’ve encountered ladies/ aunties who’d judge you for your colour. I’ve seen people differentiating within two children from the same house-hold due to colour basis. I’ve met ladies who’d come to see a potential bride for her son, but rejecting a girl, again for the same reason. People will always be on guard to put you down, it’s upon you if you let it affect you or not. Had God desired to create two toned world, well he had all possible powers to make it that way, but he didn’t. So why do you accept the judgement of His creation, who is by no means higher in pedestal than you. 


Until Eternity,
Keep Loving Yourself 
Take Care <3

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
