REVIEW: L'Occitane Mango Flower Lip Balm

L'Occitane Mango Flower Lip Balm Review

Review Of L'Occitane Mango Flower Lip Balm...

Its been more than 10 years that I have been staying in Pune. So much so that I call it my city now. Whenever anyone asks me as to where I belong to, I in order to escape the mess of trying to make them understand my part Bengali, part Manipuri lineage to which now Punjabi has been added as well, I end up telling them I am a Pune-ite. Of course half the people gawk at me with disbelief for the sole reason of me claiming to be a Mongoloid Maharashtrian but then India is growing up and it isn't about states and communities anymore :)
So, anyways... What I am trying to say is that I have been in Pune long enough to see it grow and become this all accommodating cosmopolitan city. From being a pensioner's paradise where retired people settled to some peace and quiet to being the Oxford of the East where students from all over the world came to do their engineering, then architecture and now MBA to finally being one of India's growing mecca for IT professionals, Pune has welcomed all and made them her own. And in this transition I have witnessed the city acquire it's first Mc Donald's, then a Pizza Hut, then Dominos and finally KFC. Imagine my joy when Mango, Zara, MAC and Clinique first opened shop here... And then came L'Occitane... Ah! Pure Bliss!

Even though it's been more than a year that L'Occitane started their first store here in Pune, it wasn't until two weekends before that I finally stepped into their Pune flagship store. And what a delight it was! From the gorgeous and pretty unique packaging to heavenly scents emanating from various corners of the store to the most adorable SAs ever, I loved everything about it. I used the adjective adorable to describe the SAs! The icing on the cake was seeing my favorite Body Shop SA working at L'Occitane! Yup! I took it as a sign from God to start shifting my loyalties from The Body Shop to L'Occitane! Kidding! 

Or am I?

The first product that I bought that day was the L'Occitane Mango FLower Lip Balm. Now I am honestly not really a mango person, give me mint and I am overjoyed but the exoticness of Mango and Date Flower Lip Balm totally enthralled me. I almost got myself the Date flavored product when I chanced to smell the Mango version and well rest as they say is history... 
What made me choose Mango, you ask... You see the Mango flavor at L'Occitane isn't exactly the full bodied, yummy Alphonso mango flavor that you generally expect. Rather it is the smell of mangoes that remind you of your summer vacations as a kid. Yup it smells of the "langda" or rather the "totapuri" species of mango and if you have spent your childhood in India then even you wouldn't be able to resist it!

So I bought it!

Now coming to the part where I tell you about the balm like properties of the product and this is when I tell you that I give the product a 100 on 100. It is a fabulous product that has the lightness of no lip product I have ever worn and the comforting moisturising property of milk cream... It stays on forever. It stayed under my Colorbar Velvet Matte lippy for more than 7 hours with coffee breaks and lunch in between. It is fabulousness guaranteed!

However, you might not find it too fabulous for your pocket :/

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

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…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
