REVIEW: The Body Shop Bath Gloves



Review of The Body Shop Bath Gloves For Hands-On Exfoliation



I am an ardent fan of The Body Shop. So much so that when the whole issue of selling "expired" products surfaced, I still remained loyal to them. I buy their Body Butters, Shower Gels, Makeup products, perfumes, hand creams and even makeup brushes. However, I put my foot down when going for their exfoliating bath gloves.


A couple of years back while deciding on getting myself these bath gloves, I chanced upon a pair of these bath gloves in one of those stores that stock a lot of Chinese and South East Asian products. I was getting them for INR 99/- and of course it seemed to be a better deal than shelling out a whopping 300/- bucks for the Body Shop ones...

I was happy! It worked for me and I have never looked back... I have conditioned myself to "hands-on exfoliation" ever since! Then Westside came out these similar gloves priced at INR 175/- and I jumped... I switched to them and have been really happy and content with them...

And then tragedy struck... The day I realized that my current pair were on the borders of getting tattered, I went to the Westside near my place to restock, but they were out of stock... So I kept on visiting Westside stores whenever and wherever I could and they would perpetually be out of stock... This in addition to leaving me heart-broken, also left me feeling at a loss cause my current pair was seriously in tatters by now... So out of desperation, I gave in and purchased a pair of bath gloves from The Body Shop...

Of course I knew I was spending a certain amount of money for something that I knew I had been getting for half the price but desperation led me to the extreme...

So, the other day when I finally started using the TBS bath gloves, I realised in just one stroke that quality speaks for itself and no amount of money can change that... TBS Bath Gloves essentially serve the same purpose as does bath gloves from other brands and non-brands but the TBS ones are without a doubt are less abrasive! Oh yes! I could use them on my face as well and no I was not left feeling mutilated!




Price Of The Body Shop Bath Gloves

They cost INR 300/-

Pros:
Available in pretty colors
Soft and not abrasive to use
Can be used on the face
Non-toxic

Cons:
Is on the expensive side

Recommendation:
Exfoliating bath gloves are the best invention ever! Get yourself a pair.. However, if you don't mind paying a little extra and have sensitive skin then 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: 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…

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.
