LUSH Herbalism Face and Body Cleanser

LUSH Herbalism-Green Gooey Goodness for Skin: Review

Hello people! This post will be seeing the light of the day after a long time. LUSH as a brand has always been a fascination for me. A self-proclaimed bath-&-body-products’ addict, as I am, LUSH has been like a fairyland, wherein I can immerse myself in their distinctive aromas and textures. So when I could get my hands on a couple of products from Lush, I was ecstatic beyond words!

I badly wanted to try LUSH. It was a difficult task to make up my mind about the choice of products. So much so, that I remember spending a few sleepless nights dreaming about the products.:P Imagine my euphoria when I actually got them in hand! I had shared my LUSH haul on Instagram as well, and Herbalism is the first product from the bunch I’m reviewing. So, this post is really special for me. 🙂

Skincafe Lip Tint Balm (Shade : Apple Cranberry Pie)

Welcome Luscious Lips with Skincafe Lip Tint Balm : Apple Cranberry Pie – Review

Hello lovely people! Let me introduce you to a wonderful brand today. A brand that is innovative, thoughtful and consistent. Skincafe is a brand you might or might not have heard of. This is because they don’t insanely publicize themselves, or their products. But the brand has a beautiful ideology and a small team of closely-knit people, that are dedicated to providing some wonderful skincare products. And I feel equally delighted and honored to be associated with this kind brand and present its product before you.

Skincafe majorly works on lip care, although they have a nice range of face masks. Each of their products are named after a dessert, and their product catalog looks more like a dessert heaven than a skincare e-com site! You’ve got to see their website to believe it.😃 Find them here : http://www.skincafe.in.

Let me show you a few snippets from their website. 🙂

Their website enlists the products in form of pictures of these super delicious desserts and smoothies… 🙂

I received their Lip Tint Balm in Apple Cranberry Pie, a mildly red-tinted lip balm. Read on for the complete review.🙂 Read more

Summer Indulgence with Nyassa : Mandarin Citrus Handmade Soap and Cola Twist Lip Moisturiser Review

Hi all. Now after a year of blogging, it is no longer a secret that I’m a big time bath-n-body products’ fanatic. 😀 Maybe that’s the reason summers seem inviting to me?😅 And nothing but mangoes and some amazing shower products could make my summers any better.

When it comes to shower or bath-n-body products, Nyassa is a renowned name. With its versatile range of products, the brand is sure to pamper you from head to toe. I am currently using (and loving) their Mandarin Citrus Soap and Cola Twist Lip Moisturiser!

A Little About Nyassa :

We call this thinking ‘From Heaven and Earth’.
Imagine the most exotic and mesmerizing of fragrances, exquisite and indelible, romantic and dreamy. Then imagine a whole basket of pure and wholesome natural ingredents, from the bosom of the earth, beneficial to your skin and body. Now imagine them coming together harmonously, elegantly, almost divinely, in a bath soap, or a body butter, or a handwash, or a face cream.

Imagine products that stimulate your mind with their rich bouquets as they nourish and enliven your body with their active ingredients. In your shower or out of it.

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. 🙂

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%).
