REVIEW: Bath & Body Works Cashmere Glow Body Lotion

Of Shimmering Vanilla, Golden Peaches & Cashmere Musk...
Post By: Marianne

Hey everyone!
This is my first article on ISLM. The product up for review today is quite special to me.
A couple of months back, my friend who lives in the U.S. was flaunting her huge Bath and Body Works haul to me over Skype and I was drooling over the stuff. Imagine my joy when she sent this over to me a few weeks later as a surprise gift!

The Cashmere glow body lotion is part of BBW’s Signature collection. Their website says: “Every girl deserves cashmere! Moisturize with an enticing blend of shimmering vanilla and golden peach wrapped in soft cashmere musk, immersed in our exclusive hydrating formula. Skin-softening shea butter, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E deliver all-day moisture, making it the perfect everyday lotion.”

Pretty much an accurate description. Vanilla, musk, peach – you definitely get strong hints of them all. It is a ‘warm’ kind of scent, if you know what I mean. The lotion exudes luxury and makes me feel quite special when I wear it. It is a moderately thick, pale pink liquid (may look white in the pics, but it actually isn’t!). It blends in pretty fast and does not leave any cast or oily residue on the skin (I can’t stand that slippery greasy feeling which some lotions and creams give!). Yet, it does a great job of moisturising, with skin remaining hydrated for a whole day! It passed the “scratch test” right until the next shower. I live in a hot and humid place, though, and was wondering if it would do as well in colder climes too. I asked my bestie, and she vouched for this lotion too – so no worries on that front, your skin won’t be left feeling parched even when the temperature is dipping! 

Pretty packaging with a pink metallic cap earns it even more brownie points. 

Even with its sterling performance, the best thing about this lotion for me is the fragrance. It lasts for up to six to seven hours and sometimes I can get a whiff of it even after that if I sniff really close at my skin! The only gripe I have with this product is the presence of parabens. Though I am on the fence about this issue after reading a lot of articles online, I would still feel more comfortable knowing that what my body is absorbing is completely safe.

Yay! –
  1. ·       Awesome fragrance
  2. ·       Blends fast
  3. ·       No greasy feeling
  4. ·       Moisturises well
  5. ·       Cruelty-free, so animal lovers can use it guilt-free

    Umm... –
  1. ·       Availability (or rather non-availability) in India
  2. ·       Parabens! 

    How big a dent will it make in the wallet? –
    $11 in the US of A.

    Will I repurchase?
    If I get a chance to, yes.

    With all these points working in its favour, there is no reason to skip this. It is one product you should
    ask your friends/family to get you from the States. 


  1. Oh I am so tempted to try this out! Sounds really good :)

    1. It is Sara! Do try it if you get a chance! :)

  2. The golden peaches part with the mention of soft cashmere musk sounds sooooo tempting Marianne... I think its time to pester my friends in the US ;)

    1. Ooh yes yes ! ;) All of Bath and Body Works's products sound very 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…
