My View On the Product :

I have a very fine and straight hair with oily scalp which turns oily the day after washing it and in order to keep it oil free I need to wash it everyday alternate day and due to washing my hair regularly with chemical based shampoos,my hair was severely damaged.While I was searching for a shampoo which helps in removing the oil from my scalp as well as adds some volume to the hair I found this Barley volumising hair cleanser which suits perfectly for my needs.When I thought of buying it luckily I have received the sample of this cleanser in my June Beauty Wish Box and tried it,loved it and immediately bought it.This is the super best hair cleanser I have used so far.I cleanses my scalp and hair thoroughly with out making it dry.It definitely adds a beautiful bounce and volume to the hair which I love  . It helps in keeping my scalp and hair oil free for more than 3 days after washing.As it is free from harmful sulphates and other artificial foaming agents it does not lather much but cleanses the  hair and scalp thoroughly and  makes them squeaky clean.The fragrance is very soothing and mild which does not bother sensitive noses at all.As the consistency of the cleanser is runny and you need to be careful while tilting the bottle or else lot of product gets wasted.A small amount is enough to cleanse the hair each time and so one bottle lasts easily for more than 45 days.It is total worth for the money and I am happy that I found my HG hair cleanser and I am sure I am going to continue it till I find something better than this.I have already stocked up two bottles.Those who have dry hair may need a conditioner after using this but it is perfect for oily hair!!!.

My Current Skin Care Routine

Hi girls :)

      Today I am sharing my current skin care routine.I do follow a skin care regimen which changes according to the climate.As it is a monsoon season now,my skin being a combination one, tends to be on a drier side this season and so I am using the products which gives enough moisturization to my skin.I have reviewed most of these products before.What ever may be the season,Sunscreen is a must for me!!!
My Current Skin Care Routine 
My skin care regimen involves a CTM (Cleansing,Toning,Moisturization) routine 2 times a day and I use Face masks twice a week and scrub once in every 15 days.

Currently my routine involves mostly Dr.Batra's products which I am loving so much.

 Day Time Skin Care Routine :

My morning routine involves a CTM,sunscreen and a Lip balm with SPF.

1) For Cleansing I am using  Dr.Batra's Tea Tree Face Wash.
2) For Toning using Dr.Batra's Skin Toner.
3) For Moisturizing I am using Lakme Perfect Radiance serum and Vichy Bi-White Med whitening re- plumping Gel cream.
4) Finally I finish with a  lotus Sunscreen  with SPF 40 ,occasionally Avene Sunscreen with SPF 50 when I have to spend more hours in hot sun and use Chap Stick for lips with SPF 50 +.
5) I do not use any eye cream in the mornings but occasionally I use eye gel like Bio Bloom Under Eye gel and recently I have received White rose Under Eye gel in July Beauty wish box,which I am liking lately.
