Forest Essentials Honey & Vanilla: I "Stole" Them and Now I Love Them!


Forest Essentials Honey & Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner

What do you do when you check into a 5 star hotel room and find that the bathroom has been stocked up with some luxurious hair and skincare products? What do you do when you check into a 5 star hotel room and find the bed to be just so plush and soft and pristine white? What do you do when you check into a 5 star hotel room and find soft, white bathrobes tucked away discreetly in a corner cupboard?

Well what I do is, I first jump onto the bed and keep rolling over till I have lost a substantial amount of calories just rolling over. Then I dive into the bathtub and let the warm water caress me and lose myself in an aromatic bliss of the wonderfully luxurious skincare and haircare products that have been provided. Once my fingers ad toes have shriveled due to the water I get out, don the soft bathrobe and again get under the covers of the plush bed. All this when I have just checked into a hotel room...

Now what do you when you are checking out? Nothing... I feel all sorry about leaving all the luxury behind, pack up my stuff and just leave. But then this while I was checking out of the Grand Hyatt in Bombay during the BeBeautiful VLOGON session, I came back from the door of my room, left my luggage at the foot of my bed and re-entered the bathroom. I looked at the travel size Forest Essentials Honey and Vanilla Shampoo & Conditioner bottles and a debate raged inside my head. The childhood Moral Science classes and my etiquette told me to turn away and leave the toiletries alone but my common sense said its a 5 star hotel and they would throw away the used toiletries the moment they would get the room ready for the next guest. At last temptation won and I surreptitiously picked up the two innocent looking bottles and "hid" them deep inside my travel bag.

Oh God! I stole it! I was shit scared of the hotel security. The moment I was outside Bombay, I started breathing evenly and I relaxed...

And then my love story with the wonderful products started. I am officially in love with the fragrance of the products and I am bowled over by how soft it makes my hair... I love the products and well I am glad I flicked them!

A full fledged review when I buy the full size bottles next week :)

So have you ever flicked toiletries from hotel bathrooms? Or am I the only shameless one?


  1. heheh no worries dear .... everyone does that ! I remember when I was in Florida the hotel had awesome bath and body works toiletries... :D and I really don't know how they went inside my bag.

  2. My husband says that it's not stealing, you've paid for it as part of room tariff. So don't beat yourself up about it. I've not seen this FE variant, DH normally gets the aloe Vera and neem ones used at Taj(which also smells divine btw). These must be exclusive for the Hyatt chain, fingers crossed I get to try this soon. And normally from my experience, the products used in hotels are not sold at their stores. (Just my 2 bits).

  3. lol.. you knowww why! haha

    gotta start using them too :P

  4. hehe.. you didn't steal them .. they are meant to be used and you did that.. you wouldn't have felt the same if you would've finished them up there itself.. so its all relative you kno ;)

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…

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
