Suganda 2-step skincare for oily to combination skin

My Simple yet Effective Skincare Routine with Suganda : Neem Green Tea Mask, White Lotus Moisturizer Review

Hello people! I had recently shared a simple 2-step skincare routine on my Instagram account. It involves just two products : a powder cleanser-cum-mask, and a moisturizer. Both from a new brand : Suganda. I have been using these for around two weeks now. Not only am I taken aback by their efficacy, but also I’m highly impressed with their aesthetics.

Suganda is a Hyderabad-based brand spearheaded by Bindu Amrutham, who is a natural skincare expert. Her premium skincare brand formulates products with plant extracts infused with essential vitamins.

Bindu suggested me the Neem Green Tea Mask and White Lotus Moisturizer. Both targeted at oily to combination, acne-prone skin types.

Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum

Argan Oil for Skin : Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum – My Experience and Review

Hi people! Hope you’re doing good. I’m really excited about this post because today I will talk about a wonderful serum from the house of Aroma Essentials. 🙂

About the Serum :

Contains – Argan, Bergamot, Apricot carrier oils, essential oils of carrotseed, rosemary, lavender and patchouli, shea butter (in very small quantity)

Basic Functions

Hydration, increased nourishment, skin brightening and acne prevention. Madhu calls this a serum even when it is majorly composed of oils, because face oils too have around 5% to 10% of oils, while this product has more concentrated quantity of the active ingredients (upto 70%).

And you all know by now where and how to contact the wizard lady. 😉

My Experience with the Aroma Essentials Argan Day Serum:

Serums have been an integral part of my skincare routine since years now. However I have mostly restricted them to my night time regimen. So I was really happy to treat my skin to the concentrated goodness of serum, even beneath a sunscreen!

Aroma Essential Milk and Chocolate Scrub

Aroma Essentials Chocolate and Milk Scrub is all about Pure Chocolate Indulgence…

Hi people! First of all, a very big sorry to all you lovely readers for not posting anything since long. I had a lot going on at the personal end, and work pressure at office peaked. Could catch up with hardly six hours of sleep at night. Some days, even less. I wasn’t looking and feeling the best over the past few weeks and blogging took a backseat. And I hated it.

I was dying to write. Dying. Not a day went by when I didn’t look forward to a blank canvas and wanted to scribble my heart out! This space is my own, and writing liberates me. And I’m so glad to be back. 🙂 I have a hoard of product reviews wriggling inside my head. That I’m going to share with you by and by. But let me start off with this wonderful Chocolate and Milk Scrub from Aroma Essentials. 🙂

Not My First Stint with the Brand…

I had used their face mask before that B got me from B’lore, and loved it to bits. This kind lady Madhurima then sent across quite a few products for me to try out. And yes, I ain’t compelled to review any of them. 😀 The reason I’m doing so is ‘cause I want you people to know that vegan products exist, and they’re available big time! And as long as wizards like Madhu and the Ashers (names behind Juicy Chemistry) exist, magical concoctions are bound to happen. 🙂 Read more

The Body Shop Life Is... Body Mist

The Body Shop Life Is… Body Mist – Review

Life is…
Facing the unexpected,
Yet braving the storm,
Refusing to go down
And willing to go on…

Life is…
Learning to know yourself,
Fighting your own devils,
To sculpt out your inner strength,
From all grave perils.

Life is…
Laughter of innocence,
And family and friends,
Feeling of bliss and fortitude,
Amidst menaces multitude.

Life is…
Loving a lot and getting lost,
Blessed on a greener earth,
Glory of whose seeps through the veins,
Resplendent till we breathe our last…

Hello everyone! I couldn’t help but write some scratchpad poetry when I heard the name of The Body Shop’s line of fragrance, Life Is. 🙂 Well now when I was looking up on the internet, I realized this is not a brand new fragrance range. TBS did have some fragrance range called Life Is… some time back. Then it added Life Is… Gold to the range. However, once again with the “Gold” removed, TBS now leaves space for your imagination to weave in the meaning of Life Is… 😀
