Note to self: Go back to everything natural!!! That being said, I recently came across an all-natural ingredients skincare brand, Prakriti Herbals. I know most of us are sceptical about opting for a natural composition, perhaps because we think the products won’t work or that the label is a lie. But let me reassure you that Prakriti Herbals is no lie ladies. I received the products a while back and I had decided that I would do a blog post only if the products actually work for me. Its been a month and a half and I’m really glad that I’m hooked to Prakriti Herbals.
I used 3 products from their range: Walnut Wheat xx Exfoliating Scrub, the Papaya Strawberry Aloe Vera Regenerating Face pack and the Rose Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. I have extremely dry skin so I decided to use the products step by step. Needless to say the scrub worked wonders on my pores. Unlike other products I didn’t face any burning sensation or itchiness. Walnut is ideal to restore moisture back to your skin, and lord knows we could all use some safe and much needed moisture!
The second step was the face pack; infused with fruity goodness, the face pack was extremely cooling. Papaya is packed with antioxidants and various vitamins (A, C, E and K) which makes this fruit a one-stop shop for all skin-related issues. Strawberry too has several benefits as a skin treatment agent like preventing acne, it is anti-inflammatory and it balances the skin complexion.
The Rose Aloe Versa Soothing Gel is engineered in a way to heal scars and blemishes. I have been using this product as a toner, massager, and relaxing gel :D. The gel even targets dark spots and the villain of all faces – dark circles! So, there you have it! Dry, rough skin? Scrub! Tired and dull patches? The Herbals face pack. And to top it off, the perfect end to your skin regime, the Soothing Gel!
Specially curated by Neeta Adappa with utmost love and care for all skin types, Prakriti Herbals has concocted a perfect solution to my skin ailments and the best part is, its ALL natural ingredients. How can it go wrong? Keep your skin safe, supple and happy!

Delicious flavours, pure ingredients and the best of recipes, Papa John’s pizza is #DaBomb! I was never much of a pizza person, pizza emoji aside hehe but one afternoon I indulged and went on a frenzy. Don’t judge me but I had 2 appetizers, 2 whole pizzas and to top it off, dessert…#GuiltyNotGuilty. So here’s the verdict…
My afternoon of indulgence started with two mighty scrumptious appetizers: ‘Papa’s Chicken Strip’ and the classic ‘Chicken Wings’. With both on my table I was in chicken heaven. Papa John’s stands for the best ingredients and they truly live by that as the meal was fresh, flavourful and it surprised me. We’re constantly overloaded with new flavours and new this and that and so both appetizers exceeded my expectations remarkably. The chicken was cooked to perfection, the crust crunchy and so delightful. I’m a huge chicken wings fan so I was bound to love it but the sauce deserves all the credit.
Next I ordered the pizzas! I ate ‘All The Meats’ and ‘Chicken Super Papa’s. As the name suggests, the All The Meats pizza has *drumroll* chicken sausages, grilled chicken, chicken salami and lamp pepperoni…gaah I’m drooling as I’m recollecting my experience hehe. All these meats combined with luscious mozzarella cheese, it was para para paradise *lame* but honestly one of the best pizzas I have ever had! Moreover, the ‘Chicken Super Papa’s’ is another chicken overloaded pizza but with mozzarella cheese, with appetizing chicken tikka & salami, there’s also the most succulent spicy Italian chicken sausages everrrr and some veggie goodness of mushrooms, capsicums, onions and black olives. Both equally delicious pizzas.
I also tried Papa John’s Molten Chocolate Lava Cake which I can confidently say is an inimitable experience in just one bite. The cake is moist and the molten complements the lightness of the cake beautifully because it’s insanely chocolate-y and dense. All in all, the entire meal was the ultimate foodgasm!
Hey readers! I’ve got something new to introduce to you – Mojojo! A new service that encompasses all your beauty service requirements and desires into one easy peasy platform. Ever hunted for a good salon for your new haircut? Or a whacky hair colour that you saw trending? Or just a simple, nay, perfect pedicure service without travelling and trying a hundred parlours? What Mojojo does is offer you a convenient and easy tool to access whatever beauty service you want, without actually having to travel.
It is a marketplace where stylists, colourists, and all beauticians from Bangalore can connect with you, showcase their work and you can book an appointment with just a click. The website offers one hell of a wide range of services to choose from (some you might not even know you wanted until you’ve seen it haha). This includes services for haircuts, nails art, massages, manis & pedis, all beauty related services and even tattoo parlours! When I discovered this site, I was just looking for a really good face clean service nearby. And two hours later, I’m still adding to my list of what all I want (I have a problem sigh). Too many choices!
Of course, needless to say that there is a separate section for bridal and groom beauty care. I couldn’t help checking that I out and I saw a list of all the salons that offer bridal makeup (I clicked on makeup specifically) along with filters which help you make an informed and quick decision.
What the Mojojo team has done is they have joined hands with those who provide these services and the information on the site is constantly updated so customers like us can choose what they want without having to wonder things like ‘oh will they still have this stylist or has he left?’. And the best part is, it is mind numbingly easy to book an appointment! The best part of such a platform is that the services that have targeted, those aren’t seasonal or occasional; almost all beauty care services are constantly necessary and Mojojo makes this ultimate hunt so convenient.
Now I know most of us rely on recommendations instead of marketing gimmicks. And we, absolutely need to, after all this isn’t about returning a top you didn’t like, it’s about a haircut that will remain, a facial or a safe tattoo. Mojojo has already taken care of that concern as they are reviews provided by customers first-hand.
The website has made everything crystal clear, with their top stylists list, a super cute blog that keeps me informed about beauty care (there’s always more to learn). Definitely explore Mojojo at www.mojojo.com
