REVIEW: The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel

Just yesterday I had this incessant urge to re-organize my bathroom counter at 11:20 pm! Yup I have these "Monica Gellar" moments once in a while and the pati looks over helplessly while I overhaul the whole house, organizing, reorganizing and refurbish the whole house :P So while organizing my bath and body products, I realised that ALL of my bath and skincare products were from The Body Shop! I realised I am seriously addicted! That is how I realised that there were so many of these TBS products that were still pending review and I picked up the Satsuma Shower Gel for review today :)

First off, it smells divine! It has a warm Orangey fragrance (obviously), which instead of being OTT is actually so refreshing and so yummy that all you want to do is pray that the running hot water in your bath just continues till eternity... I generally have a candle-lit hot shower before bed during the winters, where I pamper myself with luxurious spa salts and all that jazz... But since the Satsuma Shower Gel has come into my life, all I need is this and my spa salts remain forgotten on the bathroom counter :D

It is super moisturising and really not drying! I am telling you this in the winter season so you can imagine how well suited it is for dry skin :) It contains Satsuma Peel Essential Oils that I assume is responsible for the yummy fragrance, Glycerin that helps it be a moisturising product and Community Trade Organic Soya Oil (Brazil) that is rich in essential fatty acids that helps repair skin... It is actually goodness in a bottle :)

The best part about the product is that it leaves behind a beautifully refreshing Orange fragrance in the bathroom :)

Images of the Product:

Ooooohhh And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. It has a refreshing fragrance
2. It is not drying!
3. It smoothly glides on your skin and leaves a residual freshness after the shower.
4. Does not cause any reactions but generally TBS products do not :)
5. Quite easily available at all TBS counters.
6. One bottle goes on for pretty long
7. It lathers easily and really well.

I really cannot think of any!

It costs INR 395/- for 250 ml.

Oh you bet! I think I have found my HG shower gel and I am so not deviating form it :)

Would I Recommend?
I'd be selfish not to! This is a must try product from Body Shop and if you like luxurious hot showers, you must give this a shot :)

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…
