REVIEW: The Body Shop Body Butter Duo In Macadamia

I am a Body Butter and a Body Lotion wh*re and nothing, just nothing in this world can make me happier than a new tub of Body Butter :) So when I saw a 25% off discount on TBS Body Butter Duos, I had to get myself one... There were a lot of options fragrance wise but I ended up picking up Macadamia because it had the most subtle and a unique scent...

The Body Butter Duos from TBS are exactly what they are called. The tub is divided into two and has a basic body butter for normal areas and has a thick, creamy butter for super dry areas... Macadamia nut as such is rich in antioxidants as well as vitamins A, E, B1, B2, B3, B12, which make them naturally a boon for one's skin.

It has a subtle nutty smell that tends to bend towards citrus-y. I love how it smells and have never smelled anything like it before... Nope it is not a beautiful, feminine smell but more of a quirky smell that is comforting at the same time! I speak in contrasts I know but I am not sure how else to describe it :/

Now coming to the main part of the review, I really like this duo. The "normal" butter out of the two gets absorbed real quick and does not leave you feeling sticky like how the TBS Peach Body Butter... I apply it on my fave and neck too. No do not judge me cause I figure that whatever is good for my body is good enough for my face as well... The "thicker" butter of the duo is great for my feet and hands... The heels of my feet are naturally very dry and in Winters sitting in the AC my hands become super dry as well. So I find this really comforting as a hand cream as well.

Images of the Product:

Oooohhhsss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Its great for dry areas and dry skinned girls.
2. It does not have an overpowering fragrance. Rather the subtle smell that it has is really comforting.
3. I really like the concept of two textures of a body butter in one jar :)
4. A little product goes a long way.

1. It is quite on the expensive side.
2. May not suit girls with oily or normal skin.

It costs a whopping INR 880/- for 200ml.

I definitely would!

Would I Recommend?
If you have dry skin and need relief for the really dry areas of your body then this body butter duo is for you. If you are an oily skinned or a normal skinned beauty then you may not want to try it out :)

Overall Rating:


  1. I so want to try this but my existing body butters just never get over...this one luks so tempting

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

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…
