REVIEW: The Body Shop Love Etc... Solid Perfume

I am not a fan of "heart shaped" anything.. Pendants, earrings, pillows, balloons.. No missy they are not for me :) But I got myself a heart shaped solid perfume and so you ask why? It's because I love small and tiny "dibbis" (containers) and the little tiny dibbi that the solid perfume came in totally won over the repelling heart shape it had... Though I must say that a fragrance called "Love Etc" would obviously come in a heart shaped container now wouldn't it? Its only natural. So ladies and gentlemen, without much ado let me introduce you all to The Body Shop Solid Perfume called Love Etc... Romantic? Yeah obviously... Cute and Pretty? Oh you bet! :D

As you can see in the images below, the solid perfume comes in this cute heart shaped PINK tin container with a white lid. It is the most convenient perfume to carry in your purses (obviously) and its mild floral and feminine Vanilla + Jasmine notes makes it an instant favorite. It has a sweet fragrance, which is the same as its liquid counterpart also known as Love Etc. But the solid one is a tad lighter and milder, which I like :)

I generally dab it on pulse points i.e. behind my ears, on my wrists and my cl*av*ge and I can keep smelling it almost for 6 hours at a stretch! I did have to "touch-up" after 6 hours but when this tiny dibbi is in your purse, trust me "touching up" is as discreet as possible :)

Ooohhsss And Aaahhhss!!
1. It has a mild, floral and a feminine fragrance.
2. Comes in a cute container
3. Very convenient to carry along in a purse.
4. The fragrance stays on for pretty long for a solid perfume. It stays on for about 6 hours on me.
5. After it dries off, it does not cause irritation or rashes.
6. TBS does not test on animals :D
7. The product is ok for 24 months after opening. Hence you have a lot of time to finish it :)
 
Ouches!!
1. You need to dig in your fingers into the tub. Some may find it unhygienic especially if you are sharing.
2. It is not available online.

Price
I do not remember the price :( The moment I find it out, I'll update this space :)

Repurchase?
Yes I think I will unless I find another solid perfume that has me all tizzy *hoping to God that Green Tea by EA starts coming in a solid form*

Would I Recommend?
Oh yes! It has a very soothing fragrance. Very feminine and if you are a sucker for cute containers like then its a must have for you :)
Do note that beauties who prefer stronger fragrances or even fruity fragrances may give it a pass :)

Overall Rating
8.5/10

So you think you'd try this out?

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
