Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

You might look at this and think it kind of looks similar to Soap & Glory. That's what I thought when I across Dirty Works. Same retro wit product lines but Dirty Works is like the less expensive sister of Soap & Glory. I came across the range on MedPlusBeauty eons ago and I bought a couple of the products. Clearly, I was in my blogger exploring mood. The Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask  is basically a face mask and a scrub. The scrub part is something I realised after buying it.…Read more
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

For the longest time, sunscreen (or rather it's application) has always been something I knew I should use but never did. Even in school my skin could react to extreme exposure and those were telling signs that I needed to take care of my skin. I guess my knowledge and interest about such things improved when I started reading beauty blogs and ultimately I could no longer put it off. I had used a few sunscreens before this and I hated the experience. It made me look shiny, or there was a whitecast,…Read more
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

On my review posts I'm always talking about how travel friendly products are etc. Since I spent the better half of last month doing just that, I thought I'd do a 'What's in my purse' instead of the usual monthly favorites! Let's dig in! I mainly carried 3 bags. The red one with two transparent sides was for keeping makeup. I kept the products on one side and the brushes on the other. The pink one was also kept in my luggage and it contained skincare stuff, perfume etc. And lastly, the gorgeous…Read more
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I really like the limited edition stuff that The Body Shop comes out with. This came out in fall I think, I'm hoping they release it again soon! Also, the Blueberry range is available at the moment! It's amazing, seriously, go buy it! Coming back to the review, here's The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter. It's a heavenly, heavenly peach fragrance which is so refreshing! Honestly, it's like slathering peach ice tea on yourself. Suffice to say, I definitely getting this again when it comes out. It's light peach in colour and very…Read more

It's time for the monthly favourites. There are a couple of new and old items here. I was way into my Mac lipsticks last month especially Girl About Town!         01. Nail Polish : Max Factor : Fantasy Fire Have I not raved about this polish enough? Click and see the review for some duochrome awesomeness.   02.

Murad Blemish Spot Treatment

Murad Blemish Spot Treatment

I was curious about acne spot treatments and I just wanted to explore a new one after using the La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. This product has really great reviews but my experience with it isn't that great. Murad Blemish Spot Treatment is part of its vast blemish control line. It's a targeted spot treatment product which you apply on acne. It's off-white coloured with a lotion like consistency. It contains a few powdery particle bits. When you apply this, even in a thin layer, it's very much visible. You can't really use anything…Read more
Fabindia Orange and Cinnamon Face and Body Gel Scrub

Fabindia Orange and Cinnamon Face and Body Gel Scrub

This is a very very late review. I finished using this a month ago but I just never came around to writing about it. I bought this on a whim after my tiny Soap & Glory scrub was used up. My only criteria was a  scrub that wasn't too abrasive. Fabindia has some really nice products. My mum in particular loves their lotions and I have tried their Aloe & Cucumber face mask before. The Orange and Cinnamon Face and Body Gel Scrub and looks and smells amazing. You have an orange gel and…Read more
I Love… Bubble Bath & Shower Gel in Strawberries and Cream

I Love… Bubble Bath & Shower Gel in Strawberries and Cream

At some point of time in your life, you might fancy mildly smelling like a strawberry milkshake for the better half of the day. If you ever get that urge, this is the product for you. I got this in a Vellvette box (now FabBag) and I've used up most of it now. I Love... Shower Gel in Strawberries and Cream is a light pink gel which lathers really well and smells heavenly! It's bit too strong in the bottle but when you use it, the scent is literally like dousing yourself in…Read more
Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing Brightening Cream

Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing Brightening Cream

Time for another skincare review! This winter I was using this moisturizer from Korres which is Greek brand. They have quite a nice selection of bath and body products as well. Coming back to the Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing Brightening Cream is a rich moisturizer. It's white in colour and as a very mild rose scent which is quite nice. The consistency is thin but you can tell it's so concentrated. You don't need a big blob of this, just a tiny pea size amount for your face and neck will do. It forms…Read more
