#chhoteKadam Small Steps To A Healthy Heart !!!

Hello,

    September 29th marks the World Heart Day and on this occasion I would like to share few small steps or to say more precisely small changes which I follow to keep my Heart Happy! Recently my close friend and classmate died due to Heart Attack at the age of just 26, which came as a shocking and at the same time warning for me, which made my mind to think about the heart and I was very much depressed when I heard about the demise of my friend and from that day I have been incorporating few lifestyle changes that will help and protect my heart in the long run by preventing diseases!

Here are the steps, which I have started following recently and advice you also to follow regularly as it definitely help you in one or the other way and please start thinking about your heart, which in turn helps in keeping your total body healthy!
#chhoteKadam Small Steps To A Healthy Heart !!!

1) Stay Active:  It is very important to stay active as it helps in keeping your heart active, as you work harder, automatically your heart works better and as a result you are less likely to get diseases like High blood pressure which is the major cause of heart attacks. Staying active also prevents many other diseases like Type 2 Diabetics, Coronary Artery diseases and even in preventing some types of cancers. So, start exercising for at least 30 minutes in a day, it can be anything like walking, jogging, yoga, aerobics, any type of dance like zumba to keep your-self active and energetic !!!

2) Eat Healthy: Eating healthy is the utmost important thing for being fit. Taking a balanced diet that is rich in Proteins, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, choosing the right cooking oil helps in weight management which is the main concern these days. Incorporating whole grains, cereals, fruits, vegetables, eggs regularly in the diet helps in supplying all the essential nutrients to the body that are necessary for a healthy heart and body!

3) Being Happy: In these busy lives, the only thing which everyone has these days  are the Stress and anxiety, which are the major  causes for the heart strokes and other heart related dieseases. So, try to reduce your stress, don't take anything seriously except health and try to be as cool as possible, try to be happy every time!!!

Ponds White Beauty BB+ All In One Fairness Cream With SPF 30 PA++ Review!!!
My View On the Product : The Ponds White Beauty BB+ All In One Fairness Cream comes in a colorful and sleek tube with a narrow nozzle and a metallic cap.The nozzle dispenses the right amount of product with out wastage.The cream has a floral fragrance with a thick consistency and needs a bit of blending into the skin.It is a bit lighter than my skin but once it is blended well,it slowly settles and gets adjusted to my skin tone.I have combination skin and I have to use a powder to set in my oily T-zone.It evens out skin & hides minor blemishes and the coverage is light to medium.The staying power is 3-4 hrs on my skin,which is good for daily use when I am at home or for grocery shopping etc., but the coverage and staying power is not enough for any parties or events.This is available in only one shade which suits only medium to fair skin tones and may not suit wheatish to dark skin tones.It has SPF 30 PA++ in it,which is good for daily sun protection.I am using this in place of a sunscreen sometimes,when I do not need much coverage.This cream is similar to a tinted moisturizer but is available at a much lesser price than the tinted moisturizers available in the market.This suits all kinds of skin and doesn't breakout.I am not a fairness cream kind of person and do not believe in the fairness claims of creams and I do not have much to tell about this cream in terms of brightening.This cream is available in almost all fancy shops even the tiny ones,which is a good thing!
Ponds White Beauty BB+ All In One Fairness Cream With SPF 30 PA++ Review!!!
Sriz Rating : 4.5/5
Ponds White Beauty BB+ All In One Fairness Cream With SPF 30 PA++ Review!!!
Final Conclusion about Ponds White Beauty BB+ All In One Fairness Cream : This Ponds BB+ is a good cream which evens out the skin by giving a light to medium coverage and  enough sun protection.This serves well for daily use and for college going girls!!!

Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!

Hello,

     Recently I have reviewed the Konjac Sponges from my recent U.S.A haul and today I am reviewing one more product from the haul,which is the Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick from Maybelline!!!
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Price : $ 8.98.You can buy it from Amazon.in here
Quantity : 0.24 ounce
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Packaging : This comes in a retractable tube packaging similar to lipsticks!
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
What the product Claims : Master the perfect v-shaped face with this easy-to-use contouring and highlighting duo. This 2-in-1 stick creates the illusion of structure and lift in two easy steps.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Directions For Use : Apply Dark Shade along jawline & hollows of cheeks,blend well!Apply light shade on high points of face,blend well!
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!

My View On the Product : The Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick comes in a retractable tube.As the name suggests its a duo stick,it has both highlighter and contour in one tube on either side.It has a conical shape ('V') at the tip,so that it is easy to apply.This crayon kind of highlight & Contour have a soft and creamy texture with good pigmentation, which glides smoothly on the skin.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Both Contour and highlight have matte finish and the effect looks very natural and is good especially for day time as it doesn't look artificial.The formula is super easy to blend and gives a nice natural look.This is available in 3 shades,light,medium and deep.I got the shade medium,which is good for wheatish to dark skin tones.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
It does its job decently  but for those who love that glowy dewy kind of look may not like this one because of its matte finish.It is priced reasonably and easily available in the other countries like U.S.A, U.k. etc., but it is not yet launched in India.This comes handy while travelling and a good choice for beginners.The major con of this product is it is tough to apply as while applying contour,there is a chance of applying highlighter along with it and vice versa, as they are placed side by side.If you  see the swatches in the below image,you can see both of them in each swatch.I wish they have placed contour on one end of the tube and highlighter on the other end,so that it is easy to apply! 
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Sriz Rating : 4.5/5
Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick Review!!!
Final Conclusion about Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick : This Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour & Highlight V- Shaped Duo Stick  is a good choice for beginners,who want to try out contouring & highlighting and also for those who love matte finish ones!

My Views On the Product : The first thing I liked about this lip salve is the unique Bamboo packaging,which is so good.It is very sturdy and travel friendly.The lip salve is colorless and has a rich texture obviously because its a salve and not just a regular balm,but the interesting part is it doesn't feel heavier on the lips,as it gets absorbed and doesn't sit on the lips.It has a super yummilicious fruity fragrance,which lingers for sometime.It reduces all the dryness and heals chapped lips and peeling of skin on the lips with in 3-4 days if used continuously.It gives a nice boost of hydration to the lips instantly after application.I have been using it from past 2-3 weeks and have seen a bit of improvement in my lips in terms of lightening,may be it needs more time to show the result.It is enriched with the goodness of Cocoa butter,carrot seed oil,sweet almond oil and water melon extract and is free from harmful chemicals like Paraben, Paraffins, Silicones, Alcohols, Glycols, Synthetic Colors.It is a bit pricey but after looking at its impressive ingredient list it is worth!Tub packaging may be a concern for some.

What the product Claims : During the monsoon,with the heat subsiding we tend to forget a very crucial element of skincare.Sunscreen.Even if the sun remains hidden behind the clouds or tangos with the rain,as long as it is daytime,your skin needs protection.This sunscreen has specially made to shield your skin from the UV rays of the sun,during the monsoon.It gives satin & soft feel,while maintaining the matte effect to the skin.It reduces the shine on the skin by suppressing the phenomenon of Specular reflection.

Organic Harvest Monsoon Sunscreen SPF 30 Review!!!
My Views On the Product : I have used few organic harvest products like lip balm etc.,before and most of them worked well and this Sunscreen too.This monsoon sunscreen comes in a travel friendly transparent bottle packaging with a pump dispenser.It has a locking system which locks perfectly,so there is no chance of leakage.This sunscreen unlike most other sunscreens has a very liquid kind of consistency,better it can be denoted as a sunscreen lotion.It has a mild mixed floral and camphor fragrance.It gets absorbed into the skin easily with light massaging.It doesn't feel heavy or greasy on the skin but it tends to turn oily after 2-3 hrs especially when the climate is humid but as Bangalore climate is always on a cooler side I had no issues with it.It contains SPF 30 and so it can be used even by those who spend most of the time outdoors.These days I am using only this on my face after toner,with out using any day cream,as it is quite moisturizing.It serves a nice base under makeup with matte finish as it gives good hydration for the skin,so the skin doesn't look dry.It contains the goodness of Olive oil and clay minerals.The formula is quite good and it doesn't give any white cast.As it is a monsoon sunscreen,it is meant for dry and cold climate and so it may not be useful in summer and humid climates as it may look oily on the skin.The price is on a higher side when compared to its quantity and the complete ingredient list is missing!
