REVIEW: The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel

Satsuma Gives Way To Olive...

I have been all this while using the Satsuma shower gel from TBS. So this time when I was almost at the end of my bottle and I found myself subconsciously going through the shelves holding the shower gels and creams... Oh yeah I was looking for a change! I was looking for something new, for something different and then I chanced upon Olives!

What drew me to it and finally buy it was the fact that it smelled of something totally indescribable... I mean if it really smells of Olives, I wouldn't know cause in all honesty I haven't smelled fresh olives ever... The Olives that I have been exposed to are mostly preserved and hence salted, the likes of those in Pizza Huts and Dominos and Subways and of course the supermarket aisles... Hence for me sweet smelling Olives is something that doesn't belong :P

It doesn't smell all that sweet, one could describe the fragrance as quite practical and well refreshing! It's the perfect smell that wakes you up early in the morning and mentally prepares you for office. I hope I am making sense here ;)

Oooohhsss And Aaaahhhss!!!
1. It is extremely refreshing.
2. One of the less expensive products from TBS.
3. Suits dry skin and is pretty non-drying.
4. Quite easily available at all TBS stores.
5. It smoothly glides on your skin and leaves a residual freshness after the shower.
6. One bottle goes on for pretty long. It takes me about 2 months to finish a bottle.
7. Does not cause any reactions but generally TBS products do not :)
8. It lathers easily and pretty well :)

Nope! None!

It costs INR 395/-

I think I am going to keep yo-yo-ing between Satsuma and this and hence YES!

It's a great product and if you are willing to try a refreshing rather than a sweet feminine scent then you must give this shower gel 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…
