Ustraa – Review


Not tested on animals, only on rascals.

This is my personal review, hence please note, this is based on my experience with Ustraa products.

Today, I will be reviewing two products, Ustraa Mooch & Beard Tonic and Ustraa Beard Wash. mooch-tonic-beard-wash

 

Before we go ahead, let me be clear that there aren’t many products in Market for Mooch and Beard. Since, the market is filled with shitty fairness and what not creams and products, Ustraa was a delight in area of grooming for Men. Whoever Gillette is, tell her bitch, Ustraa is here. :) And those who wanted Men to be fair and handsome need to get a life. Prior to using Ustraa, I was using MisterMan Beard Oil (MisterMan Store). It was the only product available in India. Except this, we had to rely on Shampoos, Conditioners and beard wax. I even ended up making myself a DIY wax and Oil using Youtube. Looking at the increasing fashion of growing a beard and maintaining it among men needed some serious products catering to this demand. Ustraa hit on right notes at the right time.

The parent company,  Happily Unmarried has been in the market since a long time and has made a huge name for itself.

Everyone knows that beard looks sexy but looking at the Indian Beards, it’s more like pubic hair when grown to lengths (Blame it on the pollution and humidity and whatever you want). But it is the truth, hence Ustraa is a ray of light.

So when, Ustraa came out with the line of products, I bought it the 3rd day itself and now have been using it since then. I am a cynical kind of person, so you will get both pros and cons below. Stay tuned…

The first product I picked by the Beard wash since I was bored and fed up of using shampoos and conditioners. The product was a delight.

  • BEARD WASH:
  • Aloe Vera, Rosemary Oil, Almond Oil & Lactic Acid
  • Aqua, Decyl Glucoside, Glycerin, Coco Glucoside, Amidopropyl Betain, Ethoxylated Lanolin, Ceteareth-60 Myristyle Glycol & Essential Oils.

Apart from leaving a pleasant aroma and great texture, it really makes the hair tangle free and removes any dirt or garbage stuck in there. It make the hair soft as well, however the only negative is, the effect of the wash is not long lasting. I mean if you are a bearded biker, you need to have patience after using the product and give it time before you can jump on the saddle. Aloe Vera and Oils do make your beard feel fresh and soft. Only catch it, do remember to groom it further using comb and drier to make it straight. But anyways, that is something you will have to do yourself.

On the other hand, the beard and mooch tonic is also a great product to use. I personally loved the old school and smokehouse aroma. It is really refreshing and leaves the beard ready to be groomed and leaves you lady drooling.

  • BEARD TONIC:
  • Natural Preservatives
  • Silicone Fluid, IPM, Easttosil, Cyclomethicone, Coconut Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Jojoba Oil & Essential Oils.

The only major issue I found was the bottles. They somehow started leaking and using them while traveling was an issue for me. If the bottle seals could have been tighter and travel safe, it would have been 100% perfect product for me.

I still use my DIY products but these products from Ustraa have really eased my pains in the butt.


 

Verdict

Go ahead and use the products. It’s better to have a groomed beard rather than pubic hair on the face. Oh yes! I know you know what I mean! Looking forward to use more products. Will review rest and post soon. Till then! Have fun with the mooch & beard! GROW!

Think about it!! And do let me know your personal reviews and experience in comments below.

Life friendly NCR roads


Commuting 80 Kms everyday between Office and Home, makes me realize how amazing the roads are these days. Everyday we ride/drive with our lives on the line to reach our destinations. As per a new report from Indian Express, Delhi has highest fatalities in road accidents but barely any data.

This means that no matter what NCR is top on the death chart. And we are all the angels of death on the road. It is funny when people say it’s not them. Let’s be honest, we don’t know how to drive and even if we know how to drive, we are so frustrated to drive properly because of some or the other reason. So basically we are shit loads of death drivers. Some of us sold our lands to buy Audi, Porche or Mercedes, some of us got big cars on loan and now we show off. Some of us are riding through daily struggle. Personally, I am not afraid of death, it will come at the right time, but I don’t wanna die coz of some asshole idiot who did not know how to handle his ride.

We are just having fun over corpses.

There are many ways in which we can put an end on this though. Sadly, nobody would give a damn about this, I am aware, however, below are my thoughts.

1. Education – We teach our kids to look left, right and left before crossing a road but why the hell can’t we teach them basic rules of driving in school and colleges? Accept it or not, I see kids driving and riding these days and their parents get them all kinds of vehicles these days which we had to beg for. And got slapped for too. Lol.. you see, parents back then I guess were sensible enough or maybe some of them. Those who are adult enough like you, reading this blog post cannot be taught since we think we know it all. Let me laugh it off bluntly on the face.. LMAO!! But we seriously need to educate everyone. Rules are meant to be broken, ok.. but why break lives and families? Who gave you the fucking right? One should be taught right from the school that the road doesn’t belong to their father or grandfather.

2. DTC | Autos | Gramin Seva – Well! They all go to the same school to learn “how NOT to drive”. The way they change lanes suddenly is an art and most frustrating thing in the world. They stop anywhere, be it in the middle of the road and turn with no indicator. I don’t know how can someone see the bus driver’s hand out his window to take the turn. They should be fined or imprisoned if not found in dedicated lanes. We are promoting public transports but who will teach them how to drive?

3. Fine and Impound wrong side drivers – These are the biggest cause of accidents on the roads. Be it a bike, bullock cart, truck or any other vehicle, everyone is a threat. The idiots don’t realize that the turns maybe a little ahead. Rather than that, they prefer to drive on the wrong side. And they come in all the lanes, left, middle, right, you name it!! There is no rule! And then we have those idiots who switch to the wrong side the moment they see a traffic Jam ahead. They go to the front of the line and cause more Jam since the oncoming traffic forces them to sneak back into the line causing more mess. Such drivers should be fined heavily and vehicles impounded.

4. Cab drivers – Talk about NCR accidents, how can we miss the cabs plying to and fro Noida and Gurgaon. They are most of the time drunk, do not know how to drive, rude and they just try to be F1 racers with their ass on fire. In order to get paid, they just keep running 24×7 and have caused accidents time and again. Those people who use such cabs are also to be blamed. The shit heads call themselves educated but do not have a conscience to ask the driver to slow down. Cancellation of licenses and impound of cabs should be considered for these cab drivers.

5. Minimum speed limit on right most lane – If you want to reach your destination on time, never use the right most lane. This is a fact in India. The right most lane is the slowest here unfortunately. You will find idiots on phone, idiots scared of driving, idiots learning how to drive, idiots talking to each other while driving/riding, idiots in trucks, idiots in cars, idiots in buses and basically all the idiots. We should have a minimum limit set for the right most lane. Below which the person should be fined.

6. Speed breakers & Barricades – We know how to make sea link bridge, Barapulla bridge and many other big structures but we can never learn how to make a fucking speed breaker. It’s supposed to break the speed and not the vehicle. Some of them are so poorly made and have caused disasters. Be it internal road or highway, such speed breakers are the sickest thing ever. Problem is, everyone hates them but still they come out in the middle of the roads during the night, I have no fckng idea how or who made them. The same is barricades. They are put up on the most heaviest route causing long traffic jams. What is the use of barricades on highways, still trying to find out. I mean we have the supercars and bikes coming in India but there are no roads to drive them. This is how India will develop and have smart cities?

7. High Beams – There is no point writing anything on this topic because everyone knows what high beams cause yet we use them everywhere. While driving, while parking, while doing anything.. The white ones are even more hazardous but wait it wasn’t enough, we will put fucking blinking lights on our bikes. Put Dipper, Put Deeper or Put Diaper in night but put such bikers behind the bars.

8. Better Policing and infrastructure – Last but not the least, all the above issues cannot be solved without an efficient police force and good road infrastructure. Roads with no potholes and proper design can reduce the accidents and proper placement of traffic police can bring down the number of offenders. On highways and major intersection, one cannot find traffic police. Hence offenders think that road belong to them.

On that last note, just want to add that I have no idea what the mothers were reading or watching when these idiots were born. Maybe they were playing NFS or GTA.

Think about it…

More than BABAs’ and MAAs’


Disclaimer – Whatever you are going to read below is not meant to harm any one individual. It is not against anyone and it is my personal view. Don’t kill me for my views!!

It is that phase of life when you are busy with balancing professional and personal life. When you leave early for office and reach home late. Personal life is restricted to weekends, sometimes that too is questionable. Finding peace is difficult than finding fanny. And Alice! who the f**k is Alice becomes Life! What the F**K is life?

During this phase, and on a particular day, I sat on my Enfield by the road side and thought about how we are finding spirituality and peace through self-proclaimed BABAs and MAAs.
Someone is in Jail, someone is making movies, someone is in the process of going to Jail but is releasing videos of dancing around and others! Well others are either dead or on still around.

The real question I want to ask here is, what have we learnt from them? Are we more spiritual? Are we more tolerant? Are we more compassionate towards other humans.
If going to Guruji’s ashram or putting Guruji sticker on the car or getting the name tattooed doesn’t make you “Human”, what the hell are you doing in your life? This is an insult to the person whom you are following and to yourself. When was the last time you helped some stranger? Or did something for the society you live in?

I meet a lot of people in my daily life and observe a lot of people, I do not see any change. The followers seem to forget that real respect for your gurus is not in putting stickers or their photos in your rooms. It is about implementing those ideas in your life and be more passionate and tolerant. If you are not growing spiritually, what is the point of following someone. You are just a flaw.
A lot has changed during these years in India, what we wear, how we party, how we show off, our personalities, how we live, how much money we have and how we use it, the only thing that has not changed is, we refuse to grow our brains. We refuse to accept that everyone is equal. A guy who has a Jaguar may not show respect to a Pulsar guy. They will keep honking at each other on the road trying to literally kill each other on the road yet it’s amusing to see both having Guruji stickers on their vehicles.

Then we have art of living people, Osho people, Asaram followers, MSG followers, Radhe Maa followers, etc.. (I am sorry if I missed your name here, but get the pun).

We have so many Gurus around and the count of followers is in millions, yet we cannot live a simple life. Yet we are not satisfied with what we have and yet we try to choose the evil’s path to achieved all our desires. We are just not satisfied.

Every religion teaches us to love every human and treat everyone equally. If you can’t do that, you are a shame on that religion.

I personally respect all religions and sects but I refuse to follow anyone. Just because, I know I am not perfect but atleast I have a conscience on how to grow spiritually. Yes, I get frustrated! Yes, I abuse when I am frustrated but I know my limits and when to stop.

Get the hell out of that shell or bubble you live in! If you are a follower, follow the teachings and ideas, not the individual or a trend. Have some conscience and don’t harm anyone intentionally.

In the end, everyone dies.

Think about it!!

The often forgotten elements of beauty and sexual attraction.


Inspiring one! Awaken People!

Inspiralight

What if we were to say that the most powerful, charming and magnetic traits of beauty were not based on external appearance but in fact based on traits that were in our every control?

Spirituality is a fashion!

Remember those days when temples were the places to get some peace and attain some level of spiritualism. Once upon a time!… 

It happens still? Are you kidding me? 

Temples are a fashion now. They are like exhibitions and expos’ where people go to look around, picnic, Facebook check-in and what not!. Sure, some old guys and gals (Above 40) do go to seek peace in their lives. My post is based and targeting the generation, I belong to. It’s been 5 minutes in writing this post and already 5 friends on FB have checked in at Guruji Bade Madir, Akshardham and some babaji’s temple in Rishikesh. 

And then it is about putting Guruji stickers on the cars, huge crowds, deafening noise in the temples and recently the most shocking thing ever – Guruji Tattoos. I hope whoever this guy was, did not want his followers to do such thing. 

My encounter with Guruji and respective items began when my mom started visiting this temple with my aunt who is a follower. They say he was the incarnation of Lord Shiva. Ok! I will believe you only if you tell me which evil was destroyed by him. I hope you know what Trinity stands for? Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. 

I do not believe in idols, so for me Brahma – Parents (who give us life), Vishnu – our Righteousness and Shiva – our Conscience. If you can control and listen to all three, you have achieved spirituality.

But in the end, materialism takes over. See, I am not judging you but everyone needs to understand that fashion and showing off should have some limit. There are two types of youth I see today; one is rebellious, questioning who is God and the other are those who just go and pray. Those who pray are then divided into sub categories of those who follow the hype by others and it’s the majority. Only a handful pray for growing spiritually. Choose which one you want to be. Nothing is right or wrong. It’s about making a choice.

So coming back to the topic of Guruji. See, I have been to the temple but technically speaking, like all other temples, here also things are commercialized. I sat and observed. Keeping those handful aside who came looking for real answers. Others were busy clicking selfies, doing a check-in, discussing relatives, relationships and the rest had just come because I guessed they followed the hype.

While I was noting down (these points), a couple came and sat beside me. They were talking about who has checked-in on Facebook. I tired asking them why they come to this temple only to find that they had come because their friends had come here. And on Guruji, they said, he was an incarnation of Lord Shiva. While the talk was on, enters a girl who has a tattoo – Guruji (with his signature). When I asked them why they follow Guruji and not directly Shiva, they were all confused. Clearly, they had not seen what Guruji had done, it was all about word of mouth from one person to another. 

Pls note, here, I am not trying to tell you that he didn’t do anything, I am just trying to put through a thought that maybe he wanted you to live a simple life, attain spiritualism and be good to others. Clearly, he didn’t want you to commercialize his or Shiva’s name.

Wearing a fashion accessory is easy, but when brain becomes a fashion accessory, it is not a way to live life. Rather than going to such temples just for fun, pls go to some NGO, Pet care centers, Kids care centers or any such place and check-in there so that others get to know about such places and get a push to visit such places and do some good work for those who need your time and money.

Think about it…..

Christians, Be Careful What You Say On Facebook


While the Bruce Jenner* controversy is at its peak, be very careful about what you are tempted to say about it on social media. Though your gut reaction might be to post a comment/article that articulates your disgust, I beg you to reconsider. Here’s a couple of reasons why.

  1. Many of you are either looking at porn, or something close to it. I know this because some of the pages and videos that you “like” on Facebook show up on my news feed. You probably don’t realize this, because you keep doing it, and I keep seeing it. Unfortunately, all sexual perversion is a result of human corruption. You have it, I have it too. But you might want to reconsider publicly shaming one perversion when you have another.
  2. Related to reason #1, you don’t understand the gospel. There is nothing wrong about outwardly expressing your disgust at sin. The…
