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… 😀

Clinique 3-Step Skin Care System for Skin Type 3

Clinique 3-Step Skin Care System for Skin Type 3 : My Current CTM Routine & Review

Hi everyone! Tropical weathers are tough to deal with. One day there’s a temperature of 37 degrees and moderate humidity, the next day you have a bout of showers that hardly lowers the temperature, but causes a surge in humidity levels. My skin freaks out in such conditions. 😐 It’s been long that I have been religiously following a Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing routine,as that’s the best way to beat moody weather blues. 🙂 I started off with Neutrogena, and presently continuing with Clinique.

I have been extremely happy with the results from Neutrogena. Liquid Neutrogena, and its Oil Free Moisture for Combination Skin have been inseparable parts of my skincare regime. Two of its toners – Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Toner and Fine Fairness Toner gave me good enough results. However, the paraben content in Neutrgena products started to put me off lately. That’s when on my last visit to the Clinique counter, the SA there advised me the very convenient 3-Step Skincare System. 🙂

The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet

The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet – Review

Hey everyone! As Cyclone Mora wraps its arms around coastal Bengal, my city is having its fair share of thunderstorms and rains. While the annual south west monsoons have ventured in the Deccan, Mora is prepping up the eastern region with its pre-monsoon showers. 🙂 The temperature over the last two days is near bearable now. But I wish I could just enjoy the rains with a cuppa and The Accusation. Sigh. Life as in dreams…

But I find other ways to perk up my day. With some colors and heady smelling products. 🙂 One indispensable component in my stash these days is The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet. To be using this after a cold bath in this weather makes for an icing on the cake. 😀 Read more
