REVIEW: The Body Shop Perfume Oil In Indian Night Jasmine

You know people are known by the kind of clothes they wear, or the kind of makeup they wear or even the kind of accessories they favor? Come on, we all have our favorite friends who dresses a bit to risque or someone who prefers and always dons really chunky statement jewellery or someone who is only seen with Red Lips :) I personally would love myself to be known by my Ahem! signature scent ;) No no I haven't yet worked out my signature scent (It is a tough task I tell ya!) but I have been successful in zero-ing in on atleast the type of scents I like... Something like everyone has a favorite genre in music, same way everyone of us prefers a kind of fragrance... Some like it fruity, some like it floral, some like it musky, the options one has is endless :)

Which is the kind I like? I prefer my scents to be warm, woody and somewhat spicy... Something Oriental and something that gives a cozy-ish feeling... I absolutely abhor heady and overwhelming smells and hence likes of Nina Ricci and Calvin Klein are a no no for me... Give me Burberry and I satiated for life :)

The Body Shop has come up with this "Scents of the World" range consisting of a range of products under 5 scents. These are Alcohol free and are composed natural extracts. From this range, I picked up Indian Night Jasmine that is more Oriental in smell than Indian. The fragrance is in no way overwhelming, is a warm woody smell and overflows with oodles of femininity. Many would even find it seductive ;)

The perfume oil as such is in a concentrated oil form that can be applied on your pulse points... Unlike sprays and mists, the perfume oil takes time to warm up and then gradually starts emanating it's beautiful fragrance that surrounds the wearer and creates an aura of mystery and exoticism.

Images of the Product:

Oooohhhss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. I absolutely adore the fragrance.
2. It is not heady and in no way overwhelming. Nope your scent will not enter the room before you do for sure!
3. I like the concept of a perfume oil... They are more versatile than sprays and mists.
4. It comes in a sturdy and very cute glass container. It is tiny and is extremely portable.
5. It is alcohol free!
6. Does not cause any reactions/allergies or pimples!
7. Seems to be easily available at all TBS counters and stores.

1. Some may find it a bit pricey for just 15ml of product.
2. It stays on for about 5-6 hours. I would have preferred something that stayed for atleast 8 hours...

It costs INR 795/- for 15ml of product.

Definitely! It sure is signature scent material.

Would I Recommend?
Fragrances are very personal and hence am not sure if I should be recommending any kind of fragrances to everyone... But if you are like me and prefer warm, woody smells then you will love this scent for sure :)

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 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.
