REVIEW: The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Lotion

The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Lotion

Review Of The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Lotion...

Just yesterday The Body Shop store at Colaba, Bombay called me up to congratulate me for being one of the top ten spenders of their store in the year 2012-13. So they were renewing my membership for free. Ummm... I am not sure if I should be flattered or ashamed :/ I mean of course they recognize my "efforts" behind "advertising" for their brand but did I really shop at TBS much more than the snooty high society ladies who walk into the Colaba store and pick things up without looking at the price tags? Gah! I really need some de-addiction here :P

When I retrospect, I realise that every time I cross a TBS store anywhere in the country and in any which city, I have to pop in and get myself something however useless it is. I realise if I save that much money every year, I can actually buy myself a LV (One can dream right!). Now one of such "expeditions", I got myself this pretty little bottle of body lotion. Let us just say it once together... The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Lotion! Aaaah I feel much better :)

Now before I start rambling about my extremely dry skin yet again (I do that in almost every post right? You guys must be already sick of it :P) let me tell you that I bought the body lotion only and only because of its fragrance. Nope it isn't like the fragrances I go for. I generally go warm, oriental and musky smells but this one is more on the lines of a delicate floral type. It is crisp and not overwhelming and hence very soothingly feminine. And the best part? It stays on your skin for like ever! I generally apply it in the morning immediately after a shower and the fragrance stays on till I am back in the evening from work. It's pretty magical that way!

However, the body lotion as such is pretty useless for dry skin. I mean it isn't moisturising enough and it could well suit oily skin beauties much more.

It comes in the signature sleek TBS bottle with a pump cap that has "screw to open/lock" feature. The bottle itself looks really pretty because of the pastel hues of blue, pink and lavender, Looks super pretty on ones dresser :)

Oooohhhsss And Aaaahhhhsss!!!
1. Gorgeous and I mean really gorgeous fragrance.
2. The fragrance stays on for like ever! Really long stay!
3. The packaging is really pretty.
4. It is TBS :)

Ouches!!!
1. It isn't moisturising enough for people with dry skin.
2. A bit on the expensive side.

Price Of TBS Dreams Unlimited Body Lotion:

It costs a whopping INR 995/-

Repurchase?
Not the body lotion for sure. I might actually give the body butter a try :D

Recommendation:
If you do not have dry skin and you love to smell feminine and pretty all day long, then you must getit for yourself. However if you have dry skin and mosturising is more important to you than the fragrance (that's how it should be) then you might want to skip t ;)

Overall rating:
8/10 for Dry Skin
10/10 for Oily Skin

  6. A young skin renews its surface layers every two to three weeks. Over time, as we age and our skin experience sun, stress, pollution, poor diet and poor water intake, the cell turnover rate slows down causing the upper most layer of the skin to become thicker.More various body butter visit: www.vegantreeowl.com.au

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: 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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
