Plum Chamomile and White Tea Calming Anti-oxidant Toner

Plum Chamomile & White Tea Calming Antioxidant Toner : Review

Hi people! How you all doin’? Winter is paving way to the spring, and I’m elated! Winters call for a change in my skincare routine, and this year winter has been harsh. So I was really having trouble with my skin, and tried using as many organic products as I could to help my skin cope up with the dryness.

A major switch was in the toner, and I started using the Plum Chamomile and White Tea Calming Anti-oxidant Toner. I had been religiously using the toner for type 3 skin from Clinique that worked great in extreme humidity, but the drier months needed something gentler. Hence cult-favorite, vegan, chemical-free Plum. 🙂

Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter

Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter : Pure Nourishing Goodness for the Skin – My Experience and Review

Hi everyone! Did you start your year with a bang? Or are you still reminiscing in the glories of 2017? Whatever it is, winters are here to rule still a few weeks and I’m basking in my stash of body moisturizers. 😛

I’m a huge…umm…die-hard? Fan of body butters, and nothing delights me more than a handcrafted one. And the one with an amazing fragrance (it takes a good deal to convince a TBS body butter fanatic on the fragrance part). And of course it should relieve my skin of all its dryness, and make it plump and soft. A product that does all of these? The Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter. Goodness, I love it so much.

Satthwa Premium Hair Oil – My Experience and Review

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great time with all the festivities around.

The driest months of the year are here, and we need to invest that extra time to keep our skin and hairs healthy. My hair particularly needs a lot of care at this time because – dandruff, and subsequent hair fall. I have naturally fine hair, which struggles with dandruff during this time of the year. Last year the Juicy Chemistry Lemon, Peppermint & Rosemary Hair Serum came to my rescue. And this year I have been resorting to the Satthwa Premium Hair Oil.

Now like every other hair product that I review, this product has seen its waiting. 😀 I accentuate it with hair products from Aroma Essentials at times, and have used it in ways more than one.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Body Butter, Shower Gel

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Body Butter, Shower Gel : Review

Merry Christmas people! How’s your day been? Winters are finally here and I have already stocked up on body butters. 😀 And TBS does it best with its holiday edition. I couldn’t of course keep my hands off from them when they launched Frosted Plum in their holiday edition. I have had Cranberry, Frosted Berries and loved them, but I wanted a different flavor to try out this time. Vanilla chai didn’t tempt me much, and this gorgeous purple had my heart!

Additionally TBS was running awesome Christmas offers on its site, plus prices were slashed under the new GST slab. Did I need any more reasons to buy a few goodies? 🙂 So I picked up their Frosted Plum shower gel and body butter (you know, to layer that scent conspicuously), in addition to few of their classic and newly launched products. I had shared a picture on my Instagram too when I got my package. 🙂 You can find me on insta here, and give me follow for updates!
