Smytten App review |Online beauty products and cosmetics platform

This is a non paid, non promotional review of an app for cosmetics shopping online. My two most favourite apps Nykaa and Purplle have a new competition, Smytten🤩🤩

This new online shopping portal gives us trials of 6 beauty products like creams, fragrances, soaps and on every purchase order, we get 6 trials more. We have to bear the shipping cost. Also, shipping does not get cancelled even if you are ordering trials with a product purchased. I searched a lot for the coupon codes and didn’t find any.

Anyways, gave a shot to a trial of 6 sample products and spent 169/- rs, out of 169/-, 128/- rs got credited back to my wallet which could be used for my next order. I ordered 3 ital veloce body mist, 1 escape perfume and 2 soaps.

Delivery and Packaging: I am based in Pune and i ordered on 31/1/2020 and i got the delivery on 4th feb. Packaging was good, all products were wrapped in bubble wrap placed in a standard cardboard box.

I liked the products and browsed for my favourite face serum, St Botanica’s Argan and rosehip oil serum. Ordered on 2/02/2020 and received on 6th, this time the packaging was not from Smytten but directly from St. Botanica it seems.

My favorite brands available on smytten are ital veloce body mists/ perfumes, st botanica, bvlgari, Calvin Klein, biotique, and so many.

Loved a trial perfume sample and looked for it to order, surprise, i got buy -one-get-one free offer on the perfume.

The Perfume is good but i wonder why, not as good as the sample perfume 😉

Will i buy again?? Maybe, if i get better deals😃

Pros: 1) Good pricing and deals.

2) 6 sample trials, i would love to try out a sample, It makes absolute sense to get a sample of an unreturnable product and then invest your hard earned money in it. Especially true for perfumes.

Cons: Not a lot of variety like nykaa or purplle, but it is quite new so let’s give it some more time. Not many coupon codes available.

I liked their try.buy.try line too.

Have you used or are planning to order from Smytten too??? Let me know. Meanwhile, you can use the referral code below.

Flavored Salt- take a pinch before and after meals| Tibb-e-Nabawi |Hazoom


“Why Taste Salt before Meals?

Our dear Prophet (saw) said that eating salt before and after eating protects you from 70 diseases.

Imam Baqir (a.s.) has said: “Salt is a cure for 70 diseases and if people will come to know the advantages of salt they will not use any other cure except salt.”

I read about a flavored salt in Tibb-e-nabawi and decided to try this salt.

It is so flavorsome that you will feel like taking a pinch before and after food. Even my toddler loves it.

Kalonji or Nigella seeds

Ingredients:

Sea salt : 1/2 cup

Easiest pickled Jalapeno Recipe|Homemade pickled Jalapenos

Some 6-7 years back, i took out some seeds of pickled jalapenos from a market bought jar and washed, dried it and sowed it. I wasn’t expecting much, it was just an experiment and today it’s been over 5 years that we never bought pickled jalapenos again because we have so much yield that we have to pickle all of it. Pickling is really simple. You just slice the jalapenos, take some water, vinegar, sugar, salt and a few cloves of garlic and you are good to go.

I love custard apples, but sometimes many custard apples will ripe together at the same time and it is difficult to consume. What do i do in this case?? Make Milkshake!! Or Rabadi 😋😋😋

How?? Just scoop out the pulp and seeds with a spoon and put in a big metal strainer or chhalnee. Put in a big vessel. Take a metal whisk and whisk strongly, you will see seeds coming out of the pulp. Remove the seeds with a spoon and you have got your yummy pulp.

Look at the pulp and seeds separating

Just add some milk and blend. Milkshake is ready. I also prefer to strain it before serving. Healthy and no-added sugar milkshake is ready. Enjoy!!

Control Your Destiny: A beautiful poem by my Niece Aaliya

What a beautiful thought 🤩🤩

Reviews and literature by Aaliya

Your destiny is in your hands, control it by the reins. Don’t make it your weakness or feel you can’t change it . Be strong and show the world; take some pains.

It’s your choice, either to follow it or make your dreams come true. Don’t let destiny pull you down, instead use it as wings and soar high.

Faith and destiny is within us, if you dare… then take it in your hands and make your dreams come true.

The magic is within us; the choice is ours we are free. So let’s change our fate and live our own destiny.

This poem is dedicated to Disney Princess Merida.

She is my inspiration.

SheerKhurma |Sevaiyya / Vermicelli Pudding |Fast and Easy dessert| Milk based dessert|Kheer

Look at the beautiful silver leaf, rose petals and pistachios
Sevaiya
Served in a beautiful bowl

Vermicelli kheer or as we call it Sevaiyya or Sheerkhurma is a very simple and fast to make dessert.

I use the thin and already roasted vermicelli but the thick and non-roasted one will also work. I prefer the thin one.

No pudding recipe can be easier or simple to make than this beautiful recipe of Vermicelli.

SheerKhurma means Sheer ie Milk and Khurma means dates so a pudding made of Milk and dates is actually technically SheerKhurma, we add vermicelli and dryfruits to make it richer. The more we cook the milk with the vermicelli, the thicker the pudding will be as vermicelli will release starch. A very basic recipe will have just 4 ingredients ie Milk, Vermicelli, Sugar and dryfruits, So even if you have just these 4 ingredients, try making this dessert and you will love it. There can be many add ons, watch for the extras/optional items in the ingredient list.
