A Review of Perfume For Style Conscious Women

fa perfumeMany of us women whether we are working, studying or at home we tend to be conscious of ourselves. Well I guess it is a part and parcel of being a woman. No way are we ready to be caught with foul smells.

That is what my topic today is all about. If you are thinking of purchasing a Fa body spray well I hope this review would helpPhoto1862 you! I have been using the FA body spray for quite sometime now from the my working days. Well, the FA body spray I use comes with the concept of 100% free alcohol! So if you are looking for alcohol free – FA would certainly be a good option.

Well the smell of the FA perfumes in general are good and certainly the one I am reviewing about today ‘Rose Fresh’ certainly comes with a good smell. Well how long does it last? I would say may be about 5 to 6 hours, but by the end of the 6th hour the smell is very faint! But at least it would ensure we are not caught with a foul smell!

A problem I have faced with this perfume is that if you do not shake the bottle well it leaves a white patch on your body or dress. Like a powder patch that does not come off easily! Yes so whatever hurry you might be in you really need to shake the bottle well! This ‘white patch’ problem is more frequent after a month or so of purchase! Well I think this could also because there is no alcohol in the perfume!

Overall I would give this perfume a rating of 3.5/5!! Do you use this product?? What do you have to say about it??


My Samsung Champ Phone

samsung-champ-menubeen four years since I purchased my Samsung Champ (GT – C3300K). I bought it in the year 2010 for Rs. 10,500/= I really think it was worth the money. The full touch option has made many people say “Oh this must be an expensive phone!” “Wow a full touch phone!”

I’m not this really smooth phone user. I have dropped my phone many times and it still seems to work! The only thing I have done is change the battery twice in these 3 years of usage. I hope to use my phone for another year or so :)

Well when it comes to features I would say it is quite a basic phone with today’s phones having real WOW Samsung-champ-frontfactors. My phone Camera quality is just 1.3Megapixels which means the photo quality is quite low. But since I’m not a photo maniac its fine with me. The sound quality is quite good and this phone also comes with a stylus.

The other flaw of the phone that really frustrates me is though I can send emails through this phone I’m unable to attach files. So even in case of an emergency I am unable to send attachments through my phone. Also some photo formats downloaded from the internet cannot be viewed on the phone. GIF file formats cannot be set as wallpapers which is really sad :( coz this means that no animations can be set as the wallpaper.

This phone also means no Wi-Fi and no Infrared sending. Yes you do have the bluetooth option though.

I think this would be a perfect option if you are looking for a simple phone with a real ‘beautiful’ look and have a strained budget.

Do you use a Samsung Champ too? Let me know what you think!


My Experience with Dove Shampoo and Conditioners

Dove-shampoo-conditionerI have been using the Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair shampoo for quite sometime now. May be about 2 to 3 years. I am really satisfied with this product. I have kind of curly thick unruly hair that gets knotted easily.

The conditioner really works wonders with the knots. It detangles the hair like no other conditioner I have used before and I have kind of tried many products. I wash my hair regularly using the shampoo and once the shampoo has been completely washed off I use the conditioner. I leave it on for about 5 mins and then rinse it off.
The hair is then smooth to comb. And believe me smooth for my type of hair is really a wonder. Well with split ends I would say it hasn’t worked 100%. I still have splits ends though it has reduced but you really can’t expect it to work wonders with split ends.

I thought it would also be best to give you some customer rankings also. The Make up Alley website had listed this product and the following ranking was given by customers:

There were 70 reviews and this was what the total ranking summed up to:

  • Average Rating: 4.4 / 5
  • 84% would buy again
  • Package Quality: 4.1


I usually purchase the BIG bottles so that I could use it for quite sometime. For me the big bottles last for about 2 to 3 months and I use it up to about 3 times a week. So I feel that it really is worth going for the big bottles. The last time I purchased it the shampoo cost me Rs. 560 and the conditioner cost me Rs. 350.

Have you used this shampoo? Does it work for you as it did for me? Let me know what you think by leaving your comments!!!
