VEDIC LINE SUNNYWHITE WHITENING CREAM REVIEW

By Airene Guha

Taking extra good care of the skin is a must for all, especially those who spend a lot of time out in the sun. The skin has to be protected from all kinds of sun damage like tanning, rashes, sun burns etc. Over exposure to sun rays can also lead to serious diseases like skin cancer. Therefore, layering your skin with a sun block or a sunscreen or any other such dermatological product is very important. The Vedic Line brand is one of the leading brands in skin products and offers solutions to most of your skin problems.


As the name suggests, the Vedic Line SunnyWhite Fairness Cream is a special beauty blend that assures a healthy white creamy complexion. This special beauty product from Vedic Line+ brand is dedicated to enhancing body fairness by removing body tan. It is dermatologically tested and paraben free thereby ensuring good and genuine quality fairness cream. I've used the VEDIC LINE SUNNYWHITE WHITENING CREAM (sample size). So, today I'm going to review it.

Kama Jewellery- Your Diamond Destination

This post is in response to #DateWithDiamonds Name It, Blog It, Win Prizes contest organized by Kama Jewellery 

"When she closes her eyes she sees the streak of glittering light forming a star in the darkness enchants her, when she opens them, she sees her surprised self on the shining star on her finger. She smiles and says--thats's me, that's my Aarshi."


When @KamaJewellery invited me for the #DateWithDiamonds Blogger's Meet at their boutique on the launch of their new collection , I was on seventh heaven. I was thrilled to go into a world of dazzling diamonds- a woman's best friend. The day of the event I skipped another important event just to be at the Kama Boutique on time, but my lady luck was not that kind on that day and I had an unfortunate accident. So my #DateWithDiamonds had an abrupt and sad ending.

The Baggout Experience of ACP Pradyuman

This post is in response to the ongoing "Blog And Win Contest" from Baggout.com

As his wrinkled forehead made his subordinates aware of what is coming up next, he gently said, “Daya, Darwaza Chhod do”. Daya, who was already on his toes, flexing his muscles to repeat his favourite past-time, “breaking the door” game, almost fell hearing the ordeal from his superior. “Sir, Should I? “he fumbled. “Daya, sometimes think from your brains too, make yourself aware,” ACP Pradyuman, his boss grinned while making imaginary round in air with his index finger.


” Listen Daya, I have found a more convenient way to break open all doors without flexing muscles. A few days back when Abhijeet again lost his memory for the 116th times in 17 years, I just clicked a few times from my mobile and he got back his memory.” Daya fumbled,” Sir, Mobile se, Kaise?”

Caring for your manes this monsoon with TIGI!!

Every change of season throws up a new challenge for the hair. The warm and humid monsoon months make hair maintenance a challenge - acid rain, dirty rainwater and increased levels of humidity trip away the outermost layer of the hair strand cuticle making it brittle, rough and prone to dryness.


Ayesha Mistry, Educator, TIGI India says, “The biggest issue for your hair in the monsoon is humidity!!...figure out how to control that and you are off to a good start. If you are big on the blow dries, the monsoon is a really good time for quick and easy hair do's like scrunching or wearing it in messy buns, braids or ponytails. If you do choose to use any styling products during this season, TIGI’s wide range of anti humidity products will help your manes look lustrous and glam even in this 'bad-hair' weather!”
