Skin Care: My Favorite Moisturisers, Creams, Lotions and Other Potions This Winter!

  My Top Creams & Moisturizers This Winter My dresser is a mess... My cupboard is a mess... My bed is not made... My kitchen feels cold and sterile... My laundry basket is full... All this because of no sun... Come winters and the winter sun just doesn't do it for me any more... Without the Sun I am irritable, lethargic to the point of being a sloth, my house becomes a mess and my skin and hair just go for a toss! I feel lifeless without the sun and so the pati calls me "jadoo", you know of the Koi Mil Gaya Fame... Ummm yeah... No surprise there!

REVIEW: The Body Shop Body Butter In Brazil Nut

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...

REVIEW: Vivel Luxury Creme Body Wash With Olive Butter

Review of Vivel Luxury Creme Body Wash With Olive Butter Guest Post By: Manu For an extra dry skin like mine, I have to pick my products very carefully, but isn’t it the same for any skin type? Am sure, yes! The bright side to my story is – I always take it gloomily, trying various types of body oils, body butters, lotions and moisturizers with altogether varied fragrances. For some it is the beauty products driving them crazy, for some it is the fragrance. To me it is the skin care products that make me go all gaga about it!

REVIEW: Chambor Hydra Max Eye Renewal Cream

  Chambor Hydra Max Eye Renewal Cream Review Guest Post By: Raunak With all the beauty bloggers and you tube gurus telling us how we can keep our under eye area healthy and TRY to keep wrinkles away is by taaking care of the area from our early 20s on, I have used an eye cream since I turned 21 and plain castor oil even before that age. I still go back to using castor oil for North Indian winters or break a capsule of Evion 200 or 400 and apply it under and over my eyes and around my nose. The best what I have found to work for my skin, eye lashes growth and eye brow growth is castor oil but it gets very messy to apply because castor oil is the thickest oil have ever come across.

Review: Anne French Tender Care Creme Hair Remover

Review of Anne French Tender Care Creme Hair Remover Imagine this... You just got a call from your bestie on a Saturday night telling you that your ex has been rumored to be seen with his current at this uber awesome club and that you should also make an appearance to you know scope out the scene... You slam the phone down and open your wardrobe to look for something slinky and hot and yet something that spells casual and chic... You zero onto your black, lace shorts from Zara that you got the other day and find a sheer, cream top to go with it... 

REVIEW: Clinique 3 Step - Step 3 - Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion

Review of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion Guest Post By: Mrittika I’ve been using the 3 step for almost one and a half months now and apart from the Clarifying Lotion, the Facial cleanser and the Moisturizer will last me for another 1 month for sure, although the SA told me that the Introductory Pack will last me 1 month. I have been religiously using the 3 step twice a day, regularly.

REVIEW: Olay Total Effects 7-In-1 Anti-Aging Cream Plus Serum Duo

Review of Olay Total Effects 7-In-1 Anti-Aging Cream+Serum Duo One cannot defy age they say... As much as it rings true I would truly love to defy it... I may sound vain but there is seriously nothing more difficult than making sure that your concealer doesn't settle into the fine lines around your eyes. Sighhhh... What a struggle it will be... Now truly I cannot defy age but I can at least delay the signs of aging no, can't I?

REVIEW: Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen - Oily to Normal Skin Variant

A Trip Down Memory Lane with Lacto Calamine! It feels like since the day I was born, Lacto Calamine has been around... My earliest memories have always included the likes of Boroline and Lacto Calamine Lotions . We (my sister and I) were always told about how it makes the skin clear. As we grew up into young teenagers, we started understanding our skins and I having dry skin embraced Boroline as my night cream while my sister who has oily skin embraced Lacto Calamine with vigour and that's how Lacto Calamine came to be a staple in our household decades ago :)

REVIEW: Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm In Sweet Narangi Juice

Review of Forest Essentials Lip Balm In Sweet Narangi Juice If you are a fauji kid, the first thing that'll pop into your head when you hear the word Narangi  is not the color Orange and neither will it be the fruit Orange but a little army station outside Guwahati called Narangi :) I swear it's called Narangi... Why? Your guess is as good as mine :D But honestly that isn't the reason why I picked this little beauty up... I bought it for its extraordinarily gorgeous packaging! And you know what a sucker I am for pretty packaging :)

REVIEW: NIVEA Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup

A Face Wash, A Scrub, A Mask! Nothing and absolutely nothing relaxes me more than a session of Face Cleaning at my favorite salon. Of course I think I should finally get my facial but the owner of my salon simply refuses to give me a facial and insists that I only go for a cleanup... She says I don't need it and well I am happy as long as it's saving me money ;) Now apart from being relaxing and soothing, the main reason for me to be a ardent believer of face cleanings is the fact that they leave me with a sparkling clean skin that's as good as new... But it isn't always possible for me to book an appointment every fortnightly Saturday and spare a minimum of 2-3 hours in a day...

REVIEW: Clinique 3 Step - Step (Cleansing) - Liquid Facial Soap - Mild (For Dry Skin)

  Review of Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (Mild) For Dry Skin Guest Post By: Mrittika After being overly satisfied with the Clinique Clarifying Lotion which I received in my January Velvette Box, I decided to buy the full sized bottle of the Clarifying Lotion. But the Clinique SA convinced me to try their 3 Step Introductory Pack.

REVIEW: Aaranya Honey Moisturising Shampoo

  Review of Aaranya Honey Moisturising Shampoo Guest Post By: Manu A good, different, uncommon name is always like a ‘Jingle in your ears’ which definitely draws your attention.   And this shampoo’s name perfectly fits for this phrase. Aaranyaa – a Sanskrit word which historically means green and bountiful forest, so be rest assured to get all the natural ingredients in this product. Ah! What a bliss! It brings me back the memories of my childhood vintage – pure black shampoo with Amla, Shikakai and Methi (fenugreek) seeds. Above all, it also claims to be
