Hi people! Winters have finally made up their mind to bid adieu, and I am relieved. I know I know, so many of you love winters, but I’m more of a tropical person. 😀 Nevertheless winter has its pros – lush fresh veggies – I love them. But the winter this time has been harsh on my skin. I got dry patches on my arms, that felt rough and bumpy to touch, near shoulders and I was in a state of shock, having incurred them the first time ever. Living in a warm, humid climate almost made me so-not-used-to so much dryness. This time however, it was testing. 😐
I did some research to identify the causes behind my skin conditions. I needed to find them because I needed to combat the dry patches at the earliest possible, as they were getting uncomfortable day by day.
Following could have been the reasons behind the rough, patchy dryness (any or all could apply) :
Taking hot showers frequently
Pores getting clogged from silicones in moisturizers
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.
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!

Hi everyone! The one collection from The Body Shop that has totally mesmerized me is their Spa of the Worldcollection. I can’t stop raving how much I like most things about it. The thought behind it, the packaging and the products themselves are all so amazing. The reason I couldn’t stop at just one when I was shopping from thebodyshop.in when they had great offers running. 🙂 I have already reviewed the Hawaiian Kukui Cream and the Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil on the blog, and today I have the Japanese Camellia Cream from the same range for review.
Product Description :
Camellia oil has been used by Japanese women since the 8th century to gently soften and moisturise skin. The exquisite scent of this pure and elegant flower allows mind and body to reconnect with a moment of profound peace. Use this rich body cream with a light, velvety texture as part of our relaxing ritual when you’re in need of a fast-track to tranquility.
