The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter Review

Review of The Body Shop Body Butter In Brazil Nut

I have this huge tendency to put on weight, which is why it is extremely important for me to be very careful of what I eat... Those who know me well would know that I gym 4 times a week and go through the whole rigmarole of having at least 2 cups of green tea  in a day, carry a fruit or a green veggie salad for lunch and all that jazz... But if you know me really well, you'll know that I love to gorge on anything sweet, be it cakes, motichoor laddus, doughnuts or even sugar boiled toffees...

Hence, when I enter any TBS store, my first reflex is to get drawn towards the section where they keep those yummy vanilla or cocoa scented products... This time as well I had my attention riveted towards the aforementioned flavored products when the SA suggested me to try out the body butter in Brazil Nut. She nonchalantly informs me that it is very good for very dry skin and that it does not smell too sweet... My thoughts immediately go to the pati who had just the night before been cribbing about how I smell like a chocolate bar (and not in a good/edible way :P)... I had my TBS Chocomania Body Lotion on.
So the moment I realized that the Brazil Nut Body Butter wasn't supposed to be sweet, I brought it home with me.

True to its word, TBS Body Butter in Brazil Nut is perfect for people with dry skin and keeps your skin well hydrated and moisturised. I apply it once a day just after my bath and my skin is happy for the rest of the day. Remember I spend 8 continuous hours in the AC! And still my skin is happy and hydrated! That's HUGE!

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter Review

Flavour wise, it has a subtle bitter, nutty smell that is extremely yummy and reminds me of this Nutrine Coconut toffee that we used to get when I was a kid. The body butter smells exactly like it without the overt smell of coconuts... The smell is hard to explain but the best that I can do is tell you all that it smell like a caramel flavored hard boiled confectionery that has been rolled in grated almonds and chocolate powder... I hope I am making sense here :P

Apart from telling you all that I generally love all TBS products (with the exception of the Chocomania range) and telling you all about how perfect the body butter is for dry skin and how unsweetly yummy it smells, there isn't much that I can talk about wrt to this Body Butter...

Oh and lot of people complain about the tub like container that TBS has for its body butters and how unhygienic it is and all that, but I love these tub-by containers and love to collect them :)

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.

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.
