      Fabulous lipstick that is worth the price

      I love Revlon beauty products. They are all good quality products. I find them really worth the price. One just cant go wrong with any of their products, be it foundation liquid, eye make up ,Perfume or lipstick.
      One need to be extra careful while choosing eye make up and Lipsticks. I feel that with Revlon products one need not worry as the products are tested and safe. So far, I have never ever had any kind of allergy or anti reaction to any of their products.I have been using their eye liner and find it very soothing and so is this lipstick.
      Here since nothing has been specified , I am reviewing the lipstick that I have with me. It is called Moondrops. I love the name, it is dreamy and so is the lipstick.
      The shade I have is called Goldmist Bronze. I think this shade is perfect for medium skin. I feel very comfortable with this shade and it suits most of my clothes, since it goes well with my skin tone.
      I do not use lipstick on a daily basis, only when I go out in the evenings or for a special occasion !
      I love the feel of this lipstick, it flows and spreads easily and it is damn easy to apply, even without a mirror LOL..It also has moisturiser which helps my lips keep soft and supple. I have a huge problem with dry lips especially during winter months, and when I wear any other lipstick , after a while , my lips start looking dry and stretched, but with Revlon I have had no such problem. It stays beautifully for a long time.
      I have used many different brand of lipsticks before, but, Revlon lipstick has given me the maximum satisfaction. The lipstick lasts for a long long time , so it is worth the money you pay. I can easily recommend this lipstick to any one to use without having any kind of doubts about its quality.
      There are many nice shades in this particular range Moondrops - Earthy, Copper glaze brown, Copper glaze Sienna, Sugar Poppy, Mirrored Mauve, Heather Frost, Persian Melon .


      I intend buying some more shades of this lipstick like Earthy and Heather Frost, which are both more suitable for my skin colour. the mauve and pink shades are nice , but I am not sure whether they would suit me.
      =Some details about the lipstick=

      It is a Revlon classic! Conditions your lips .
      Helps keep your lips soft and supple, with beautiful, flattering colors.
      There are 29 shades in both crèmes and frosts !
      It cost me Rs 295/- which is roughly about 4 sterling pounds or $6/-

        Go for it..

        Clarins Total Shampoo for men , is the wrong product for me to review, as it is clearly a men's product. But I thought since I have been using it along with my brother and find that it is perfect for me as well, there was no problem in writing a review about it.
        Clarins shampoo was highly recommended by my brother by some his friends and I too decided to try it once having run out of my usual shampoo. And having used it once on my hair and body and I simply loved it the very first time , later, I have been using it on and off borrowing it from my bro !!

        It gives out a lot of lather and rinses out very easily leaving the skin and the hair fresh and squeaky clean . I love the strong, rather masculine perfume of the shampoo. But it is a very pleasant perfume, not too overpowering. I use a very feminine floral talc later on so I don't smell so masculine when I come out of my bath LOL!
        Clarins is an expensive brand and this one is quite expensive at 19 pounds( I am told, since I have not paid for it).
        It comes in 998 gms tube as is shown , and lasts a long time. One needs to use very little of this each time . And we, that's me , and my bro have been using it , he frequently and myself , not so frequently.I alternate it with other shampoos, so it has been lasting for more than 2 months now. That is really long I would think, and that is quite good value for money as well !

        ==Usefulness ==

        This basically being a Men's product, it can be used to wash both hair and body. It revives and it cleanses, promoting more manageable hair and leaves one feeling fresh and clean, and I mean really clean !
        It also tones the skin and strengthens and conditions the hair ( thats what it claims on the cover). And it Responds to the specific energy and softness needed for men's skin!!!. However I dint feel my skin feeling rough after using this, so , i like this product , and , my brother LOVES it !! He swears by it !! He intends buying it in the future and using it.

        ==Product details==

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        It is a magnificent film, no doubt about that...

        Sholay was directed by Ramesh Sippy, and released on 15th august 1975.It is a magnificent film, no doubt about that...

        The main actors were Dharmendra,Amitabh bachan,Sanjeev kumar,Hema malini, Jaya Bhaduri,Jagdeep,A.K.Hangal and Iftekhar and last but not the least Amjad khan, who had the most important role .In fact the story of Sholay revolves around Gabbar Singh the character played by Amjad Khan.

        Sholay is the story of a police officer Thakur Baldev Singh, whose entire family of sons, daughter , daughter in law and grand children have been killed by a dreaded daaku( dacoit) Gabbar Singh(Amjad Khan) in an act of revenge.Thakur being a police officer gets him arrested and the daaku is sentenced , but he manages to escape and when Thakur chases him, he chops Thakurs hands.Thakur lives in a village farm house with the only survivor his widowed daughter in law Radha(Jaya Bhaduri).
        Thakur wants to take revenge on Gabbar Singh who is constantly terrorising and killing the villagers .So he asks two petty criminals Veeru( Dharmendra) and Jay ( Amitabh Bachan) to help him capture the daaku.

        The two petty thieves Veeru and Jay come to the village to help Thakur, and though initially they try to loot his valuables and run away, they begin to sympathise with his plight and agree to help him out.They begin enjoying the life in the village. Veeru meets the village tangewali ( carriage driver) Basanti( Hema Malini) a chatter box and falls in love with her.The quiet jay falls for Radha(Jaya Bhaduri), Thakur's widowed daughter in law.Gabbar Singh gets the news about this new development in Thakur's village and he strikes with his gang.

        ~~What i think of Sholay~~

        I personally rate Sholay as one of the best made films in Bollywood.
        It was different and it looked more like a western film.The treatment was very different .It was a land mark film which ran for some 4 years successfully.I have heard of people watching this movie a hundred times and frankly that is overdoing it by leaps and bounds.Once, twice or even thrice is o;k, but a hundred times!!I couldn't do that with any film !

        This film was a multistarrer.I think it was made before Amitabh became famous, and this film must have helped him create the glowering angry young man image that became his trade mark!. And Amitabh Bachan and Jaya Bhaduri , who were romantically involved got married during the filming.
        Dharmendra and Hema Malini were at their peak while this film was being made, and my mamma tells me that while it was being shot at Ramnagar close to Bangalore, the two of them could be seen all over the town .I think thats the time when their romance began to bloom, and then they got married too.
        The entire film was shot in Ramnagar, where a village set was created and then donated by the Producer director Ramesh Sippy to the government of Karnataka .

        However much the producer director might deny it, i feel that the film is inspired and copied from the Western film 'The Mafgnificent seven' - the scene where Jaya Bhaduri comes every night on the verandah dimming the lights ,with Amitabh playing the mouth organ and watching her has been straight lifted from the western movie.But it was a cute romantic scene.
        I like the action in this film which is superbly directed, without becoming a bore.It is difficult to choose between Dharmendra and Amitabh, they were equally good in their roles, and Hema malini was a riot.She was so comical.I think she is great in comic roles and though plump looks cute.
        Jaya Bhaduri looks sweet, she hardly speaks 2 sentences in the film, but what an impact she makes.The 2 of them , i mean Jaya and Amit look so lovey dovey together.

        But obviously the scene stealer is Amjad Khan in his role as Gabbar Singh.He looks menacing and his role is chilly.It is such a fantastic bit of acting.It is a role that can never be forgotten by anyone after watching Sholay.

        The music was composed by R.D.Burman.The songs were all very popular and they have become very well known even with the present day generation.But they are not very melodious .I dont have any personal favorites among them.The only one which is passable is 'Yeh dosti hum nahin thodenge' i like to watch this song video, it is very entertaining.
        The song 'mehbooba mehbooba' picturised on Helen is sexy .She must have been past her prime, but wow she looks so sultry and sensuous in the song.Helen is a universal favorite.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          You can go for it !!

          I love nail polishes.But i hate to wait while it is drying.Most of them take sooo long to dry.But now with the new quick drying nail polishes the problem is solved!!

          Earlier it was a pain if one had to leave in a hurry , which i always am, after applying nail polish.I used to do crazy things like plunging my hand into ice cold water lol.It was effective to an extent, but i got waves on my nailpolish if i was even a bit careless with it

          So this product ' 60 seconds nail polish ' by Rimmel is a boon for all those who like to apply nail polish but do not have the time nor the patience to wait for it to dry.This nail polish dries super fast as promised in 60 seconds!
          At present it comes in twenty six lovely shades- i love all the copper shades and there are quite a few copper and bronze shades also some funky purplish pinks,some cool metallic shades and shimmering pastels which are gorgeous.For best results it is best to go in for 2 coats.
          Besides being Quick drying and coming in a variety of Awesome colors , the colors remain true after applying on the nails, which i think is very important , most of the time the color deepens after it dries.Sometimes it looks quite different to what it looks like inside the bottle .But this one is a perfect match, doesn't change shades one bit !You can rely on the shade 100 %.

          I have tried other similar fast drying nail polishes manufactured by other brands but by far this is the best fast-dry polish available now
          i like the quality and the way it spreads evenly without clotting.
          the prize is very affordable at $2.49. I have bought several shades in different colors.I love the purple shade called Pulsating and the Funtime Fuschia ,and a Clear shade , and another deep shade Delicious dark which is a bluish purple, and one called Rapid Ruby LOL !
          This according to my experience is a real nice product not too expensive and definitely worth the price

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a place one can visit again and again

            If there is one place in the world that i do not mind visiting year after year, then it would easily be Goa.I love this place and i am going to write about it the way i know it.Not the glamorous part of it with 5 star beach resorts, the beaches filled with hippies and tourists and the bustling and busy parts of Goa.It is a little known village that i am going to write about.

            When i visit Goa , i stay with my grand parents who live in a little village town called Mapusa, which is at a distance of 32 kilometres from Panaji, the capital of Goa.Mapusa is a fishing village and has river and sea in close proximity.

            My grandparents live away from the town of Mapusa by the sea side.They have a little boat which they rent out to fisher folk at Rs 50 a day( One dollar)and get plenty of fresh fish in return .Grandpa is a retired teacher and has a small pension.Life is very simple in their little village which has a population of about 400 odd people may be a little more than that.There is a primary school and a government run clinic which used to be shut most of the time before, because the doctors refused to work here.They preferred working in cities.The locals got together and have now formed a co-op, running some basic services needed for the village by donating money and collecting some funds.Now there is a visiting doctor coming twice a week for 3 hours, and a small post office which is run by my grandpa and my grandma.There is a church as nearly 70% of the people are Christians and the rest like my folks are Hindus.There is one Muslim family.They all live in complete harmony.Everybody knows everybody here, and nothing remains a secret LOL.
            For all other facilities they have to go to Mapusa town which is 3 kms away.There are buses to go to Panaji from there and to other parts like Madgaon and Bardez.

            Al the vegetables are grown here, and there are paddy fields too.So everyone is self sufficient.Many houses have livestocks , so milk and meat is in plenty.
            I love visiting this place , which i do at least twice a year .I get the best of both worlds, get to stay with my favorite grand parents and go off to visit the swanky part of Goa with my friends.
            All the people in the village lament about the good old times when Goa was unpolluted , not so many tourists and no drug menace etc; etc;
            I love all the little markets in Panaji, where i buy a lot of junk jewellery and other stuff like jute bags, hats .Goa is a great place for shopping.Not too expensive.
            Mapusa has a friday market which is a lot of fun.It gets very busy on that day and people sometimes wander into our(grandpa's) little village too.Some of the Foreigners are amazed at what they see, because everything is so basic, including the houses and there are no proper roads, just narrow paths .
            There is everything sold on the market day- i mean just about everything like spices, terracota stuff,clothes, fruits, vegetables, dry fish,papads- all that is grown and made in our village too is sold at this market.

            This is the real Goa, how it was before it became one of the most popular tourist resorts in India.i am not sure how long the village is going to last in its present simple form, because many youngsters want to change and modernise it!

            I am sure this may not seem as interesting as the other more glamorous side of Goa which is known by all tourists and written about everywhere. But i love this part of Goa a lot more .

              not worth buying

              Actor(s): Vidya Balan, Amisha Patel, Akshay Kumar, Shiney Ahuja and others

              Genre: Comedy
              Director: Priyadarshan

              Classification: 12 years and over
              Production Year: 2007

              Consumer Advice: Contains moderate horror
              Video Category: Bollywood Feature Film

              Plot:-- BHOOL BHULAIYAA is the official remake of the critically acclaimed 1993 classic psycho-thriller MANICHITRATHAZHU.The story begins with Siddharth and Avni returning to their native village from America to visit their ancestral palace--believed to be haunted by the ghost of a court dancer called, Manjulika. The palace does indeed hold many secrets, so when Avni unlocks a forbidden room events take an unnatural turn, and they are helped by a psychiatrist friend Dr. Aditya Shrivastav, who tries to find out the truth behind the hauntings.He is helped in this by Siddarth and Avni.

              Main Language: Hindi
              Subtitle Language: English

              This film was made in all 4 south Indian languages namely Malayalam, Tamil,Telugu and Kannada. All of them were very successful, the most sucessful version was in Tamil starring Superstar Rajnikant, who is the highest paid actor in India.I saw that film before i saw this one.
              Compared to the earlier films Bhoolbhuliyan seems like a pale shadow.The lead role is played by Akshay Kumar .It is such a let down,He is a terrible actor and has no sense of comedy , such a sad comparison to Rajnikant, who was great in the tamil version 'Chandramukhi" as it was called.

              Vidya balan was good only in her first film Parineeta after which she is just there, not making much of an impact, the same is the case here.
              The supposedly scary scenes are nothing compared to the original film.They could have done a much better job, if not at least copied the original scenes.

              It is a very average film and one can easily give it a miss.
              The music is so mediocre that i am unable to list even a single song as being really good.
              I am not sure whether they intended this as a comedy or a horror movie because it is neither of the 2, just a mess.

              The direction too is very average and one tends to keep comparing the different scenes to the more successful original film.
              Both the Malayalam and Tamil version were far superior with respect to acting and direction , and the songs were really good.

              I would not recommend this film , because i feel that buying this film is money down the drain !!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              One can visit this place again and again.

              I have visited Ooty a dozen times but i still love going there for a holiday.
              I simply love this hill station.The weather there is so cool and pleasant .
              Ooty is actually Udhakamandalam in Tamil, tongue twisting name and apparently the Britishers discovered this place and developed it as a hill station.Not being able to pronounce the local name they gave an easier name Ootacamund which got further shortened to just Ooty.
              There are lots of very elegant English looking cottages with chimneys and flower gardens in the front , and some really huge old buildings most of which were built a few hundred years ago by the Britishers.It has an old world charm that i like.

              Ooty is situated in the state of Tamil Nadu.Ooty is a little town within the western ghats and amidst the Nilgiris( Eucalyptus) hills.The hills were once covered with Nilgiri trees.But many of them have been chopped away now to make way for roads, resorts and other such things.Ooty is called the queen of Nilgiris.

              There are of course plenty of things to do and see here.The major attraction being the lake and the boating .The lake is really huge and it spreads out in all directions . The last time we were there, our boat got entangled in the weeds and stuff growing on the side LOL- it was quite an experience getting the boat out with the help of the other boats.

              There is a really beautiful waterfall about 20 kilometres down the hills called the"Pykara falls" and it is an amazing place.During summer one can climb all the way up and sit on the rocks next to the waterfall, but it is impossible to get close during rains as it is too full of water.The water is very forceful, quite scary.It is a lovely place for a picnic.

              Then there are hills surrounding the hill on which Ooty is situated.One can go climbing all these hills and just trek around all day.There are lots of view points and hill side walks most of which are ideal picnic spots.

              Another fabulous place is the Botanical gardens of Ooty.It is an amazing place with a variety of plants and cactii.Everything in the garden looks gigantic , probably because of the ideal weather and the quality of the soil.The Roses are huge and the dahlias the size of a plate, and the cactii are unbelievably large.There is one variety which spreads some 30 feet in radius and is about 50-60 feet high.It is extremely well kept and such a little heaven.In fact one gets to see some very rare flowering plants which one needs to buy from a nursery in towns, growing by the road side in Ooty.
              The restaurants are not too good in the Ooty town.The choice in my opinion is very limited.There are of course the bigger hotels and resorts, where you do get great selection of food, but it is generally very expensive.There are not too many good restaurants or eating joints in Ooty.

              I preferred eating sandwiches and hamburgers in 'Daily bread' which was a hang out for the local Anglo Indian crowd . Since we had a good selection of food where we stayed 'The Sterling resort' , it was not too bad.They pack sandwiches and stuff for a picnic lunch as well.In fact when we went to spend the day at 'Pyakara falls' we requested the resort restaurant to pack some sandwiches which they did, and they were delicious , an assortment of sandwiches and some vegetable cutlets as well.

              Since most of the tourists stay in some resort or a Hotel, they are not too bothered about the restaurants and eating out ,because all these resorts serve excellent food.
              There are lots of things one can buy here .I think most people go for the famed Eucalyptus oil and other herbal and medicinal stuff, which is available in plenty here.Lots of woollies can be bought here made by the Tibetians.

              A few kilometres , i thinkit was about 20 kilometers down the hills is a place called Coonoor, which has Tea gardens and is an amazing place to visit.We were told about a water fall that can be seen only from the opposite side, since it dropped down from a steep mountain.We had to go through tea gardens to reach this spot.The waterfall( not sure about the name?) was very high and spectacular looking, actually scary as it hurtled down from such a height.One can take a toy train from here to Ooty.we did and it was a lot of fun.the train is so slow , that we can jog along with it.

              I feel that one must plan and visit Ooty while in India. It is a great holiday spot.one needs to have a week at least to enjoy all the sights here.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                They are more in demand now..

                Interior decorators are more in demand than ever before.
                Many people have this idea that Interior decorators are expensive and only the very rich can afford them.I think that used to be the case earlier, but now it has become as important to decorate a home as consulting an architect to design one's home.
                There are many advantages in hiring an interior decorator to plan the interiors of your home or office.

                First of all an Interior decorator has lots of experience in different styles of decoration, and he/she will be able to advise you on the best way to use your available space, bearing in mind factors like your budget, the size of the room that has to be decorated, the light factor and weather conditions , and finally the kind of room that you want.
                Again if one is thinking of refurnishing or doing up the interiors of an old room, then the interior decorator is able to come up with many new ideas that suit your room and can give it a new look.

                Nowadays ,Most Architects are interior decorators too.So it is best to get them to design your home along with the planning.When the Architect knows beforehand that he will be decorating the interiors as well, the architect is able to plan more thoroughly taking all the factors into consideration like - the placing of the door and the windows with respect to the placing of furniture , taking into account the utility.
                They are able to select the right kind of colors for your wall and the right kind of materials for your curtains etc;
                Another added advantage is that they are able to get you the best deals while buying furniture and other materials.Since they are well versed in this particular subject, they know where to get the best buys .

                  A well made interesting film

                  'Mission Kashmir' is one of Hrithik Roshans best acted films.I am a great fan of Hrithik and i thoroughly enjoyed watching this film.
                  Kashmir on the foothills of Himalayas is one of the most beautiful spots in the entire world, the only sad part being that it has a villainous neighbor in Pakistan.One always get to read about the terror camps in Pakistan where the terrorists get trained and infiltrate into Indian cities.the worst hit is the state of Kashmir because it is on the border.The story of mission Kashmir is based on this infiltration and about terrorist attacks in that region of India.

                  This film has been made by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who is a Kashmiri himself.He is saddened by the plight of Kashmir today, where it is being threatened by the Pakistani based terrorists and life has become very dangerous for people living there.

                  Vinod has tried to show the uselessness of terrorism and at the same time the selfish interests of the Fanatics looking after their own needs, without being patriotic or commited to any cause.
                  Vinod Chopra has produced many good films in the past namely Parinda, Love story 1942, Eklavya and the recent Munnabhai series of films.

                  ~~~The Story Of The Film~~~~

                  It is the story of an orphan called Altaf,(Played by Hrithik Roshan) who is adopted by a police officer Inaayat Khan (Sanjay Dutt)and his wife Neelima (Sonali Kulkarni)who is a Hindu.They had lost a child earlier and now they shower all their love on Altaaf.
                  Altaaf himself had lost his entire family and he had witnessed the killing of his mother and sister by a masked man and he is traumatised by this.
                  One day he comes to know that Inaayat Khan was responsible for the killings of his family and he leaves his house and wanders around.After some time he is picked up by a group of terrorists led of Malik(Jackie Shroff) who is bent on destroying Kashmir.
                  Altaf with revenge on his mind joins the gang and gets trained in all the combat activities, and later sent to destroy Kashmir along with a group of others.
                  He meets his child hood friend Sufiya(Preity Zinta) , who is a radio announcer. She is unaware of his links to the terrorists. He begins to love her and he also is confused about his goals .He remembers his foster mother who had showered a lot of love on him, but the leader of the group is determined to make him take part in all the terror strikes planned by him.

                  This film is really interesting to watch.Hrithik has done a great job.He looks dashing and extremely handsome in this film .I feel that this one of his best roles so far.He has a very intense role in this film which suits him.
                  Preity Zinta looks very pretty with her dimples and all those lovely Kashmiri traditional dresses and jewellery.
                  Sanjay dutt too is a great actor and he is too good in this film.
                  I love the songs which were all toppers at the time of its release
                  'Bhumbroo bhumbroo sham rang bhmbroo ' sung by Sunidhi chauhan is foot tapping and great to watch on screen and so are all the other songs from this film.

                  This is a well made film that will not disappoint any one.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Boon for those with little time

                    I like Revlon beauty products.I find their quality top class.

                    I like their perfumes , skin care products and hair care products.
                    I like the shades they come up with among lip colors and nail polish.They have come up with some really funky shades of lip color and nail polish.

                    Earlier it was a pain if one had to leave in a hurry , which i always am, after applying nail polish.I used to do crazy things like plunging my hand into ice cold water lol.It was effective to an extent, but i got waves on my nailpolish if i was even a bit careless with it.

                    So this product 'Top speed Nail Color' by Revlon is a boon for all those who like to apply nail polish but do not have the time nor the patience to wait for it to dry.This nail polish dries super fast .
                    At present it comes in 48 lovely shades- i love all the copper shades and there are quite a few copper and bronze shades also some purplish pinks,some cool metallic shades and shimmering pastels which are gorgeous.

                    Besides being Quick drying and coming in a variety of Awesome colors , the colors remain true after applying on the nails, which i think is very important , most of the time the color deepens after it dries.Sometimes it looks quite different to what it looks like inside the bottle .But this one is a perfect match, doesn't change shades one bit !You can rely on the shade 100 %.
                    I have tried other similar fast drying nail polishes manufactured by other brands but by far this is the best fast-dry polish available now.
                    The sad part is that it doesn't last long on my nails, stats chipping after 2-3 days and begins to look horrible.And this in the long run makes it expensive if one is using it regularly , since you need to color your nails more often.But at the same time it is so easy to apply and the shades are lovely and so i like it.I don't use nail polish regularly, so it's o;k.
                    I am not sure how one can sell this for less than the cost price, but i happen to see the starting bid price for a bottle of 'Ash' color Top speed nail color at US $0.99 + US $2.50 shipping costs.



                    Price: $4.99 for 0.5 fl oz (14.7 ml)

                    I found this information on the net

                      Disadvantages

                      I like using it

                      I like to use facial masks once in a while when i find the time, most of the time i make do with home made ones like Besan(gram flour)mixed with yogurt or mashed tomatoes or some such stuff that is easily available, which i feel is cheap and at the same time good.The only other one i bought was a cucumber and orange based mask which was good but a rip off ! !

                      Actually i do own this product Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask.Not the regular 75 ml tube that is shown here for sale, but a small sampler tube that was given to me at a demo.

                      I used the product and found it very very good.All that i did was spread it all over my face and kept it on for about 5 minutes and then wipe off with a tissue, thats it.
                      I have a dry skin , more a combination skin.This mask helped me a lot.My skin felt smooth and soft after use, every time.I like the mild perfume that has been used in this cream other than the tangy smell of kiwi.

                      If one uses it regularly, i am sure that it helps a lot in maintaining a glowing skin.I intend to buy this product and use it regularly , which is once a week.That i feel is more than enough.I read somewhere that it is bad to use facial masks too often as, they tend to stretch your skin and make it loose its elasticity.

                      One need to use very little of this mask at a time, which has a creamy, gel formula .So even though it is a little too expensive, since it lasts quite a while, in the long run it becomes economical.
                      I think it is an ideal cream/mask for those at 30+ years.It helps in keeping the skin glowing all the time, and with regular use helps the texture and condition of the skin.

                      Instead of using many skin products all at the same time, one can go for this one product which in the long run will give as much benefit..
                      I am very happy using it .

                      Product information

                      Darphin Skin Care - A refreshing mask with Vitamin E, Pomegranate, Kiwi and Mango extracts and Shea Butter.

                        Disadvantages

                        A great watch for anyone interested in suspense thrillers and spooky movies

                        Rod Sterling's Classic Groundbreaking Series Exploring the Fantastic and the Frightening - Season two
                        In 1959, CBS aired the first episode of Rod Sterlings groundbreaking series, The Twilight Zone.There are five seasons in all.
                        I love watching Twilight zone, used to watch the season one episodes when they were shown on a repeat run, so also season two.They are all in black and white and the look is that of old black and white suspense thrillers.
                        These episodes are very interesting and entertaining.Most of them deal with the supernatural and keeps you glued.

                        There are episodes like:

                        The Silence
                        Long Distance Call
                        King Nine Will Not Return
                        Shadow play
                        Mr. Dingle the Strong
                        A Penny for Your Thoughts"
                        One Hundred Yards Over the Rim
                        The eye of the beholder
                        Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room
                        A Thing About Machines - here the owner of the house is scared of all the machines in his house.

                        The Odyssey of Flight 33 -An aircraft and its passengers find that they are travelling back in time and reach prehistoric times.
                        Back There - Story of a man who goes back in time and realizes, he cannot change the future, by changing the past however much he tries.

                        Long Distance Call - A boy is gifed with a toy telephone and as he is playing with it he realises that he is communicating with his dead grandmother.
                        Shadow Play - A man keeps having a recurring nightmare where he is being sentenced to death and he keeps persuading those who are sentencing him to death that this is not reality but his dream.Phew! this was real scary to watch and what an ending?!!

                        The Prime Mover - A man has the ability to control objects with his mind and things start getting out of control

                        This second season contains 29 episodes on 5 disks.
                        I just cant list out my favorites ; there are great episodes in each disc and they are all equally interesting and are all absolutely terrific to watch.Just that it leaves you a bit scared when you are lonely.
                        It is a great watch for anyone interested in suspense thrillers and spooky movies.This is like the ultimate.There are no gory details, no violence , just the scary feeling and the thrill .
