Tresemme Botanix Range – Shampoo & Conditioner Review and Discount Code

Happiness is a good HAIR day!

I have grown up using a lot of drugstore hair products and little did I know more about it then. It has always been a learning journey with brands. Tresemme is a very good affordable hair care brand and doesn’t have harmful ingredients. I have been using the TRESemme Botanix Shampoo & Conditioner for quite some time and today I will share my thoughts about them.


About TRESemme :
TRESemme is an American brand of haircare products first manufactured by Godefroy Manufacturing Company in St. Louis, Missouri, United States, Starting in 1947 It was named after renowned haircare expert Edna Emme. The brand name is a phonetic translation of “well-loved” in French (Tres-aime).
TRESemme Botanix Range :
Specially Crafted formulas in the Botanix Nourish & Replenish along with Coconut milk, Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera, create a finest Bonatical Blend, that gently cleanse while soothing and nourishing hair and leave the hair feeling nourished and beautifully soft. The Botanix Range is free from parabens, dyes and silicons. They deliver salon-quality performance with every wash.
Packaging :
The packaging is very simple. They come in large plastic bottles. Both have a press on lid with a small opening that is enough to pour in the correct amount of product and avoid over spilling. Since they are huge they can’t be carried for travel unless you pour them in smaller bottles.
Fragrance description
TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner : Waterlily and a hint of plum add freshness to this addictive fragrance signature which stars green fig milk and creamy coconut blended with precious sandalwood and white musk.
My Verdict :
Both the TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo & Conditioner smell amazing and fruity. 

The cleansing Shampoo clarifies and gently removes build-up and heavy residues that diminish your hair’s shine. It is transparent and only a small amount of shampoo does the job as it lathers well. This formula, containing vitamin C and extracts of grapefruit and lemon, is gentle enough for daily use and will purify your hair for that fresh, just-left-the-salon feel. My hair feels soft, smooth and nourished.

The Conditioner is pearly white and is medium thick. Nourishing conditioner immediately silkens and smooths the hair, leaving it looking healthy.

Overall Opinion :
Both TRESemme Botanix Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner work great for my dry and a bit frizzy hair. I love how my hair feels after using them. So I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for affordable haircare range. Also they are free from parabens, dyes and silicons, so that is another plus point. Yes, last but not the least, I have a good news for you ! I have a discount code on all TRESemme products !

Palmer’s Raw Shea Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Hello Divas, Back from summer break and its time for another post. Speaking about coming back, my hair and skin has gone through a lot of weather change. Now since it is back to heat and humidity needs that special care. Palmer’s Shea Butter Formula Moisture Repair Raw Shea Shampoo and Conditioner is the solution to all my concerns and I can’t wait to share my experience. 

As a Brand Ambassador of Palmer’s, I get to experience their products before they launch in the market. A big thank you the Palmer’s team who were generous enough to send us full big size bottle of the Shampoo and Conditioner to test and review them.
Packaging :
Their plastic packaging is very simple and attractive & convenient to carry for travelling. I had also taken them along for my mini stay-cation. It has an easy small nozzle, meaning no product would be wasted and it will be easily poured in small quantities. The packaging is the colour of shea butter, i.e, Beige or Cream color and bottle is dark brown color. When I received the package, the duo smelled amazing, fabulous sweet scent. Totally sold out !
About :
The best part about Palmer’s Shea Formula Raw Shea Shampoo and Conditioner is that they have no sulfates, no parabens, no phthalates, no mineral oil, no gluten and no dyes. Wow ! Where would one ever get such a natural and pure Shampoo and Conditioner. I prefer shampoos without sulfates and work good on the scalp too. Raw African Shea is the best one in its league and I am so glad Palmer’s being such an reasonable and affordable brand uses that can be only found in natural state in Africa. Shea is known for its rich and moisturising properties and hence used in lot of beauty products like for hair, skin, lip and body. Shea not only makes the hair healthy and smooth but also helps to strengthen and promote the hair growth.
Palmer’s Moisture Repair Raw Shea Shampoo :
Like most of the Palmer’s products, this Palmer’s Raw Shea Shampoo smells amazing with the mesmerizing and sweet luxurious fragrance of Shea Butter. The shampoo is liquid pearl white and it totally shines like a rockstar. The fragrance lingers while you shampoo your hair and even after the hair wash. 
The magic formula of Palmers Moisture Repair Raw Shea Shampoo not only repairs the damaged hair it also reconditions the dry hair with its rich and carefully chosen ingredients after through research. Its key ingredients are African Shea Butter, Keratin, Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Vitamin E. Palmer’s manages to gives such sustainable products without animals testing and deserves an extra star for that noble approach.
The essential elements mixed in right proportions results in a super healthy moisturizing solution which detangles, defrizzes and softens the hair to give them a silky look. It is apt for daily use and the shampoo removes buildup without stripping hair or interrupting its important moisture balance. 
Palmer’s Raw Shea Shampoo is suitable for all hair types including coloured or dyed hair. This rich, deeply moisturizing shampoo is specifically formulated to nourish and repair dry, damaged and fragile hair. A nourishment that your hair needs for that daily shine or for any special occasion.
Palmer’s Moisture Repair Raw Shea Conditioner :
I am a sucker for Hair conditioners and this one already won my heart as it is natural. The fragrance of Palmer’s Moisture Repair Raw Shea Conditioner is a bit strong, with a slight fragrance of coconut, yet tolerable. The conditioner is Milk White and slightly thick than the shampoo. 
This nourishing daily conditioner continually hydrates as it delivers rich blend of same ingredients –raw, natural African Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Grapeseed oil, Coconut oil and Vitamin E to instantly detangle, nourish and repair dry or damaged hair. Palmer’s also claims that with its continuous use, hair becomes silkier and more manageable with frizz-free shine. 

Key hair-healthy ingredients combine to form a protective seal around weak, fragile, damaged hair, repairing and replacing essential moisture needed and adding unsurpassed shine. I can feel my hair much manageable and smoother after its use.
Overall Review :
Really impressed with both Palmer’s Raw Shea Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it on alternative days and it has left my hair more manageable, smooth and silky. It is good for daily use too as they have natural ingredients. Love the sweet fragrance of Shea butter and the fragrance is tolerable. My hair fall and breakage has also reduced. Everyday is a good hair day with Palmer’s Raw Shea Shampoo and Conditioner. If you are looking out for a good enriching and moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner, then I would definitely recommend to try this Shea Formula range. Palmer’s also has Curl Shampoo and Curl Conditioner from this Shea Formula range specially meant for curly hair.

These products are at the moment just available in US and soon to be launched in UAE. I will update you all as soon as I get any information regarding the same.

Palmer’s Summer Essentials – Coconut Oil Protein Pack & Foot Magic Review

Hello Divas ! Summer is here and it is ripping the moisture away from everywhere, specially the hair, face and foot. Pampering is really required from head to toe to beat this summer. I am glad that Palmer’s has come to my rescue to give the skin and hair that extra love and care. Today, I will talk about the Palmer’s Summer Essentials that are amazing and much required at the moment. Read on to find out what they are and my experience with the same.

I have spoke about Palmer’s brand in many of my earlier posts too and it needs no introduction absolutely as it is really an old and trustworthy brand. Many people around the world have been using Palmer’s products since ages now. I am happy to be part of their brand ambassador program and share with you Palmer’s Summer Essentials – Palmer’s Coconut Oil Protein pack and Palmer’s Foot Magic. Without much ado, let’s go ahead with the review.
1. Palmer’s Foot Magic :

The feet is always a neglected area and many a times people walk barefoot at their homes. So this Foot cream really does magic and pampers your feet. 
Why is it a Summer Essential ?
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic, made with pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E and other natural emollients, provides a deep penetrating treatment for the feet. This unqiue formulation moisturizes, softens and smoothes even the roughest, driest skin. The addition of Peppermint Oil revitalizes sore, tired feet. 
Key Ingredients :
  • Magic Cocoa Butter : a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky and  like buttery soft.
  • Vitamin E : a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretchmarks and imperfections on the skin,giving a more even and toned appearance. 
  • Peppermint Oil: revitalizes sore, tired feet.

My Review :
This Palmer’s Foot Magic smells divine. Maybe because of the combination of Peppermint Oil and Mango Butter. Yummy! Hey, we are not talking about food are we? The word ‘Mango’ does drive everyone crazy specially in the summers. I applied this Foot Magic cream on my feet after washing and drying in the night time for a week. The texture of consistency of this cream is that of a balm and it is yellow/mango colour gel thanks to the Mango Butter. Though it is mentioned on the pack to leave it overnight with a pair of socks on your feet, I left it on its own as it is very hot. I wake up with Baby bum soft feet. My feet really bless me and they feel a lot better. All cracks are filled and no more dry flaky skin !

This is a great cream to use in between your pedicure appointments to help your feet look intact. It has become a part of my daily ritual and a great summer essential. It is really more effective than all the foot creams that I have tried so far. It really does what its name says, ‘Magic’ .
2. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Protein Pack :


I have got protein treatments mostly at a salon and never tried a protein pack at home. So I was more than excited to try it on as my hair has become dry specially after the hair colour. 
Why is it a Summer Essential ?
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula products contain ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoï, infused with Tiaré flower petals. These raw, natural ingredients deeply hydrate, repair damage and give hair incredible shine. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning Protein Pack is a moisture-intensive treatment that helps strengthen and repair weak, fragile or damaged hair. No Sulfates • No Parabens • No Phthalates • No Mineral Oil • No Gluten • No Dyes.
Key Ingredients :
  • Coconut Oil : restores essential moisture. 
  • Monoï Oil : hydrates and improves manageability.
  • Keratin Protein : strengthens and repairs.
  • Silk Protein : restores high-gloss shine.
  • Coconut Milk : detangles and combats frizz.
My Review :
Again this Palmer’s Coconut Oil smells divine and it lingers on till the next day too. You can also apply after shampoo, coating strands evenly, focusing on the ends and leave it for 10-20 minutes before rinsing or use it as an overnight treatment. I applied it overnight to get the best possible result, but didn’t cover with any plastic cap as recommended in the directions, as I find it uncomfortable while sleeping. The packet is of 60 g and is good enough for 2 applications. It is a thick white cream which is easy to apply on the hair and glides on well. It is not at all greasy or oily.

Back side of the pack

I rinsed it the next day morning. I was amazed with the results. I hair definitely looked and felt great, hydrated and smooth and much better than before. I also like the fact that it is natural and free from those chemicals. Absolutely love this and definitely my hair has found a new best friend !

It can sting the eyes a bit, so keep it off them.
Overall Review :
Thank you Palmer’s for introducing me to such fantastic and affordable products. They are easily available at all pharmacies and leading supermarkets and hypermarkets. For more information log on to their website, clicking here .

Tips to reduce Hair Fall Featuring Crescina Shampoo

Hair fall is a common problem in Gulf. Also, seeing a brush full of broken hairs is a grim scene that we all have to deal with on daily basis. Although reasons and cures for hair loss amongst men are widely discussed due to the fact that most of them are genetically predisposed to hair loss, the same issue amongst women is still considered a taboo topic. Hair loss can be caused by many factors, and whether it’s medical or lifestyle related, it is a problem that has to be addressed. Let me share some tips to reduce Hair fall.

I have used this shampoo several times and found it effective from the first wash itself. Here are top five trending hair loss solutions to help reduce hair shedding:


1 – Avoid Over styling your hair :


Extreme weather conditions are the main reason we resort to heat for styling hair, but over using these tools can cause significant damage to the hair and make it look brittle or frizzy. Also, hair styles than pull on the hair like: tight braids, cornrows and ponytails cause tension that leads to breakage or permanent hair loss. Thus, we recommend allowing your hair to air dry, avoid excessive brushing or the hair especially when it’s wet, using styling tools on low/medium heat settings and loosening braids or pony tails (Messy styles are in fashion anyway). 

2 – Relax, Manage your stress :

We can’t deny that stress can take over our lives sometimes due to daily workload or even unforeseen emotional events and this can contribute to hair loss. Luckily, many studies have shown that hair can grow back once the source of stress has been controlled. Trending stress relief remedies include: hypnotherapy and acupuncture – consult a physician on these treatments for best advise. Moreover, improving your sleep pattern by waking up and going to bed at the same time and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day will significantly relief stress causing your hair to fall.

3 – Use the right hair products :

Investing in a trusty hair system specifically designed to address this problem is your key to healthy, luscious hair. We recommend using Crescina re-growth shampoo that will stimulate the natural growth of hair. It comes in two grades (500, 1300) for both genders and depending on the severity of thinning or baldness. Available on basharacare.com

4 – Take your vitamins :

Another factor that contributes to thinning hair is bad diet or not gaining the right nutrients responsible for hair growth. Following a healthy diet and reaching for multivitamins like: Biotin, Iron, Zinc and minerals can significantly nourish your hair and promote natural growth.

5 – Pamper your scalp :

Grandparents and mothers often recommend hot oil massages – mainly for hair growth purposes. However, we’ve got the ultimate hair loss solution that your scalp will thank you for. Crescina re-growth 100% vials are the latest trend to reduce hair loss as it prevents ageing of follicles, stimulate cell longevity and the physiological growth of hair. This comes in different grades depending on the severity of thinning or baldness (200, 500 and 1300). Available on basharacare.com

It does contain certain level of sodium sulphate, however this combined with other active ingredients in the shampoo work to improve and stimulate hair re-growth and does not cause any damage to your scalp or hair texture. 
Crescina is available from leading pharmacies across the UAE, including Bin Sina from AED 179 (men) to AED 199 (women). For more information, please visit: http://www.labosuisse.com
