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… 😀

The Body Shop Honeymania Soap

The Body Shop Honeymania Soap – Review

Hi everyone! As the temperature keeps surging in my city, I am always on my toes to run for a quick shower. 😛 Water, and water alone relieves me of the weather extremities. And with some really good bath and body products, bathing becomes an enthralling experience as a whole. 🙂 The foremost on my list of good bath products are the ones with amazing fragrances. I recently talked about The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet, and today I have their Honeymania Soap for review. 🙂

I have used their Honeymania shower gel and body butter before, and loved both. Wanted to try out their honey-comb shaped soap for long, but by the time I chanced upon it, the shape was revamped and now sells in rectangular bars. Sad. But I sincerely hoped this turned out just as good as the others in the Honeymania range. 🙂

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

Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask

Sheet Mask Chronicles : Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask BHA – Review

Hi everyone! I have been caught up in a whirlwind of tasks over the last week, so little late in putting up posts. The review of the Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask should have seen the light of the day before quite some time, but I didn’t want to put up a review post just for the sake of it. It feels good to know you enjoy reading my posts, so I always make sure to give each post its due time. 🙂

Let me tell you, I’m loving using the Skin Clinic range of sheet masks from Innisfree in the hotter months loaded with humidity. I have using the Catechin variant before. The sheet masks usually carry a lot of serum in them, and I have an oily-combination skin. However, the Skin Clinic face masks are a delight in a way that they are comparatively lightweight than the It’s Real Squeeze masks. And I keep going back to sheet masks. To me, they are one of the easiest ways for the lazy ones to pamper their skin at home. 😀

Product Description :

  1. It contains BHA which cares for rough skin to keep the skin smooth.
  2. This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool.
  3. It is transparent and thin and has good adherence on the skin, which allows for its good substances to be more effective delivered into the skin.
