Hi everyone, I am back with another fabulous Indian brand for you all. Established back in 1980, Vasu Healthcare is a prominent Indian company working towards the manufacturing & marketing of Phyto-Pharmaceutical Therapeutics, OTC, Personal Care, and Herbal Supplements. With a presence in more than 40 countries worldwide, 200+ products, and 30 awards and counting Vasu Healthcare will soon be a global leader in the healthcare sector.

Their wide range of products includes (but are not limited to) haircare, skincare, general care, men’s care, women’s care, bones and joint care, baby care, and respiratory care. I recently got an opportunity to try two of the top-rated products from their skincare range. The Aloe Vera Gel & the Facial Beauty Oil Age Revitalizing enriched with Kumkumadi Tailam.

Vasu Aloe Vera Gel – I was looking for an aloe vera gel to incorporate into my daily skincare & hair care routine and I happened to come across this aloe vera gel by Vasu. There could not be an aloe gel purer than this. This gel is 100% vegetarian, dermatologically tested for safety, and totally free of parabens and any kind of chemicals. There is a very faint fragrance which proves that there are no external elements included. The ingredients include – Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Triethylene Glycol & Disodium EDTA.

The cost for a 120 ml, very handy, and aloe leaf-shaped bottle is INR 180.

Vasu Age Revitalizing Facial Beauty Oil – When you’re nearing a certain age, well I won't disclose mine 😉, you always want to take care of your skin and keep it looking youthful, blemish, spots, and wrinkle-free and also wanting to retain that beautiful glow on your face. If you too are looking for a facial oil that will take care of all your worries and make you look as gorgeous as ever then this Facial Beauty Oil is something that you must have and include in your daily skincare regime.

Vasu Age Revitalizing Facial Beauty Oil is enriched with Kumkumadi Tailam that helps to boost collagen synthesis, improves skin elasticity, revitalizes and nourishes skin, evens your skin tone by reducing the spots, and also helps you reduce those fine lines and wrinkles that you do not want.

The application is extremely simple. You must wash your face, pat it dry and apply 2-3 drops on your face and massage it well. I make sure to treat my face with this oil every night before I sleep.

One thing to be mindful of is that this is an oil. So, if your skin is sensitive to oil application please consult your doctor/skincare expert first or do a patch test.

The cost of a 25ml bottle is INR 550. The expiry is 3 years from the date of manufacturing but I am sure you would have ordered your 2nd or 3rd bottle by then 😊

I enjoyed my experience using these products from a brand that I was not aware of and hence wanted to share with all you guys. I hope you will try them and if you do, do not miss sharing your results with me. Stay Safe!

Hey guys, I am so excited to introduce Aegte, an incredible luxury Hair & Skincare brand from India. I'm so glad that I came across a brand like Aegte that is all ecological, paraben-free, sulphate free and amalgamates natural ingredients to come up with products that are highly beneficial and very light on your skin and hair.

Aegte is a Danish word that stands for authentic. The products are formulated using the finest, ethically sourced ingredients. The founder of the brand Rupali Sharma commenced with her vision to bring her Grandmothers tricks, hacks and cures in front of the world and let everyone benefit out of them.

I tried three products from the very innovative hair care range namely –

1) Aegte Healthy Roots Ultra Conditioning Shampoo With 3X Power Of Ginger-Onion-Baobab 250 Ml – This conditioning shampoo has ingredients like Ginger Oil, Onion Extract, Kalonji Oil, Baobab Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Tocopherol Acetate, Vegetable Glycerine, Potassium Sorbate, Decyl Glucoside, Cocoyl Methyl Glucamide, Capryloyl Methyl Glucamide, Myristoyl Methyl Glucamide, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Cocamide MEA & PEG 150 Distearate. Your hair starts to get shinier and glossier with just one wash. This shampoo conditions hair deeply and strengthens the roots of your hair and also helps you control hair loss. The scent is mild and very ayurvedic. You can feel the natural ingredients working on your hair.

I took some oil in a glass bowl, nicely warmed it up and applied it from the roots to the tip of my hair. This healthy roots hair oil helps in acceleration of hair growth, unclogs your hair follicles, delays the growth of grey hair, and helps control hair loss too. I have been using it for some time now and I can feel my hair getting stronger with each application.

I’m so glad to have used all these three products by Aegte and would definitely recommend that you try them if you’re looking to get stronger, healthier, smoother hair using all-natural products formulated using grandma’s nuskhas. I myself can’t wait to try the skincare range of Aegte coz this shampoo, oil & mask have worked wonders for my hair.

When we visit a new country, a new city or even a new restaurant these days we always look for the places where we can get the most Gram worthy pictures! We all want to visit those places that relate to a city right ? As you guys already know that I have lived in Mexico City(Ciudad de Mexico) for close to two years and that gave me a lot of time to explore the city and visit all those places that I had looked up before landing there.

Mexico City is actually a beautiful concoction of a traditional Mexican town and urban grandeur and chaos which is the second largest in the entire Americas. There are plenty of chic places, many things to do and an array of colours splattered across the town - brilliance that can only be found in Mexico.

Let me virtually take you to all these favourite places of mine in Mexico City so that it makes life easier for you when you plan your trip there :)

1) Mexico Mi Amor - Probably the best example of 'Pretty Pink' that you'll ever walk across. The pinkest, most prettiest corner in Mexico City located at Tane, Polanco.

2) Monumento a la Revolución - The Monument of Revolution is a monument commemorating the Mexican Revolution. It is located in Plaza de la República, Paseo de la Reforma. You can take a tour and actually see a panoramic view of the city from the top.

3) Kiosco Morisco - Moorish-style iron kiosk in a neighbourhood gathering place located in Santa Maria la Ribera. The place is beauty in simplicity personified and totally Gram worthy

4) Torre Latinoamericano - This is the most recognizable skyscraper in Mexico City and was the first skyscraper in the world to be built in a highly seismic zone. Located in the Downtown region and built in 1956 it has survived two major earthquakes without any damage. An engineering marvel that you can visit and see the mesmerising beauty of CDMX from up top.

5) Zocalo, Downtown - Zocalo, Downtown Mexico City is a must visit. Zocalo is not only the center of town for this grand city but during Aztec times was considered to be the center of the universe. Templo Mayor, Metropolitan Catedral, Palacio Nacional among others are the historic buildings that adorn this place. Having been the center of some of the most important events in history starting from the times of the Mexica you will rarely find a more historic and Gram-able place in the middle of a city

6) The Palacio de Bellas Artes - Bellas Artes is a prominent cultural centre in Mexico City. Some of the most notable events in music, dance, theatre, opera and literature are held here. This landmark building with its golden domes and roof is just the perfect backdrop for your Insta pictures.

7) Biblioteca Vasconcelos - One of the grandest and most beautiful libraries in Downtown Mexico City. A massive megalibrary with 600,000 books it is a must visit not just for reading but to relish its architecture and ambience.

8) Palacio de Correos - A stunning post office, more commonly known as 'Palacio Postal' is the General Post Office of Mexico City. Located right across the street from Bellas Artes this is the epitome of grandeur and “The most beautiful Post office that I’ve ever seen or visited'.

9) San Angel - A mini magical town that will make you forget that you actually are in the middle of a sprwaling metropolis is a perfect place to go spend your day. Take a walk on the cobble stone streets surrounded by pretty colourful buildings, cute cafes and and hundreds of backdrops for your Gram feed. Go on a Saturday to see it at its best.

10) La Casa Azul - The informative and beautiful Freida Kahlo house art Muesum is surrounded by cobalt blue walls and the inside of the house is just as pretty. There are queues over the weekend so plan your visit in advance.

11) Parque La Mexicana - The most urban park located in Santa Fe, Mexico City has paved trails, surrounded by the tall skyscrapers and tranquil waterbodies. There are some restaurants and cafes within the park premise. One of the largest parks in the city it is one of the better ways to escape the noise and traffic and have a peaceful walk

12) World Trade Centre - One of the most stunning buildings in the City, located in the Napoles neighbourhood makes for a stunning picture setup.

13) Iglesia de San Josemaria - One of the most modern and good looking Churches that I ever visited. Go here and not just the exteriors, do visit inside the Church and you’ll be blown away. Clicking pictures inside is also not a problem.

14) Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe - This is the national shrine of Mexico and rightly so. Massive, modern and beautiful, this holy place will show you a glimpse of the Mexicans love and devotion for Mother Mary. Located a little far off from the main city but definitely worth a visit.

15) Angel de la Independencia - A victory column on a roundabout on one of the major avenues of Paseo de la Reforma in downtown Mexico City. Simply called El Angel by Mexicans this is the most recognizable landmark not just for Mexico City but for Mexico as a country. A thing of stunning beauty and passion this is one place which if you miss your Mexico trip would be incomplete.

I hope this will help all the readers to plan their trip to the City and get to see some of the most stunning places in the City which are also a perfect backdrop for those amazing Instagram worthy pictures for your feed.
