Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Skincare

Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Skincare

I got a chance to try the new Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss range. It's mostly skincare but also includes the Absolute Gloss Addict lipsticks. So starting the end of October I basically replaced the relevant products with these in my Skincare Routine. Out went my Antipodes Moisturising Cream and Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. In came the Lakme Skin Gloss Gel Creme, Reflection Serum and Overnight Mask. I've used these for a little over a month now here are my thoughts. The first thing you'll notice about all three products is the crazy strong scent. And I…Read more
L’occitane Almond Delicious Paste

L’occitane Almond Delicious Paste

Hello there! A lot of makeup posts this month, going to introduce a skincare favourite to try to balance things out! I'm very much into body scrubs, especially the ones that also provide some nourishment. L'occitane Almond Delicious Paste is does all that and has a lovely almond scent. The name is quite apt since it's a paste with teeny tiny bits that work as an exfoliant. Due to the paste like consistency, it's very much like applying a really thick cream and spreading it out. You also don't need a lot. The exfoliant…Read more
October 2014 Favourites

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

A while back I purchased this travel size set and I've used quite a few times in the past year. Korres is a Greek Pharmacy brand and I do like their skincare and bath products though I haven't tried a lot before. This set was also a good opportunity to try a bunch of things. Korres Holiday in Greece Kit comes with a shampoo, 2 showergels, 1 body butter and 1 body milk. I do wish there was a conditioner instead of 2 shower gels though. I'm going to do mini reviews of…Read more
Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

I love cleansing oils! It's a cleanser and makeup remover in one and it works brilliantly. For the longest time I was using the Origins Clean Energy Gentle Cleansing Oil and I eventually wanted to try something different. I had heard a lot of praises about the Shu Uemura one and decided to get it. While this was an expensive purchase, it's lasted me for so long and it's just the perfect cleansing oil. Before I review, I have to apologize for the appalling photos in this post. I'd already used up and thrown away…Read more
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

Hey guys! For a change, here's a skincare post. I've always wanted to try products from Nuxe, so I ended up getting this multi usage oil and their lip balm. I'm liking both! NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil, much like the name is a kind of oil you can use for different purposes. It's a thin consistency of yellow coloured oil which smells just amazing. The scent is quite strong with a jasmine, vanilla floral fragrance which is somehow very balanced, it's just lovely. I use this in a lot of ways…Read more
La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche

Hey guys! Time for a skincare review! You might have spotted this in a few favourites and in my travel makeup post. I've loved products from La Roche-Posay for a long time now. I always have the Effaclar AI on me and I've tried their moisturizers a very long time ago (before I started this blog). I was looking for a light moisturizer that I can carry around with me and I found this on sale at Escentual.com. La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche belongs to their hydration line. I was drawn to the…Read more
August 2014 Favourites

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more
EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

Time to review the cutest lip balm on the block. Pretty sure at some point you might have come across these and your inner child went "squeeeeee". Well, it did happen to me and I rightly purchased the EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. The pink chubby ball is attractive in itself but thankfully, it works incredibly well too. Inside you have a dome shaped lip balm which is off white in colour and smells like strawberries. If that isn't enough for you, the formula is darn good as well. I like to…Read more
Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion

Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion

I've written about this so many times in favourites and other posts, it's high time I reviewed this product. It's pretty much over now! After using the Avene Gentle Toner I was really impressed and wanted to try more from the brand. I was looking for a light moisturizer that I can carry in my purse and this seemed to be a good fit. Avene Rebalancing Soothing Emulsion is a really confusing name which doesn't say a lot but it's basically a light moisturizer. This is perfect for people with oily or combination…Read more
