June 2015 Favourites

It's favourites time again! I tried to not include everything from my haul, but there's a lot from it.   01. Pai Camellia & Rose Ultra Hydrating Cleanser :: I used up my Ren Milk Cleanser and it was time to finally start using this. I'm very impressed. I like the consistency, my skin never feels too dry after using it. It's very gentle around the eyes as well. I generally use this in the mornings and second cleanse in the evening. I also love the packaging and the pump really generates the…Read more
Summer Haul

Summer Haul

Spanning 90 days and multiple cities, here's what I spent most of my money on this summer. I have used a few of these already so expect mostly raves! Highlight of the post is that I finally caved and bought Tom Ford!! I'm so pleased!! I feel complete. Kat Von D  Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in BauHau5 :: from Sephora (US) :: Intriguing shade name here! Here's how this started. Before KVD the only liquid lipstick that was transfer and kiss proof was the LimeCrime one. I refuse to buy LimeCrime and so my hunt began. For the…Read more

May 2015 Favourites

Happy Monday! I thought I'd present what I've been loving lately, there's a mix of old and new products this time round. I generally don't have too many new favourites month to month. But every 2-3 months I have a lot more new products to share without it getting too repetitive.     01. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion :: As much as I like The Body Shop it can get boring to use them at a stretch. I was quite happy to find this at Sephora. I had used…Read more
Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Hello there! I've gone almost 10 days without posting and that's very irregular for this blog! My work load has changed dramatically over the last month and there are a lot of personal engagements and travel in the months ahead as well. For a while things will be less structured schedule wise. I had my big skincare routine talk this month and one of the products I've been using is the Clinique All About Eyes Rich cream. I wasn't really using an eye cream before, my usual facial oil/moisturizer seemed to work just fine.…Read more
My Skincare Routine | Face Masks & Extras

My Skincare Routine | Face Masks & Extras

Hi guys! Now that we're done with the entire AM & PM routine, here are few of the extra bits I like to use. My face mask routine as such as quite methodical. On Wednesdays, right on the middle of the week it's time for a deep cleansing mask followed by a hydrating one. On Saturdays, my exfoliating mask and I have some time together. I don't always follow up with a hydrating mask. It depends, whether I'm going out later or not.   Exfoliating Mask : Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant : Review…Read more

My Skincare Routine | PM

Welcome to part two of my skincare routine, all about night time! Introduction about my skin type and morning skincare routine are all in this post. My pre-blogging self would be scoffing at this routine. From foam cleanser + Nivea + Vaseline, this is what it's come to! The first part of my night time routine is basically cleansing and toning. I very much prefer using cleansing oils and balms/milk/cream variants. Another addition that I previously did not use is an exfoliating toner. It's really helped with keeping the PH of my skin more acidic. I…Read more

My Skincare Routine | AM

Welcome to the three part series on my skincare routine! The last one I did was in 2013. I wanted to do one last year but I was never quite happy with my overall routine. Part Two is up here! I guess I should start off with explaining about my skin type! Skip ahead if you've heard this a million times already. I basically have dry skin, more so in winters. It's normal during the monsoons when it's humid. I don't really get oily but if it's a really hot summer day I…Read more
Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Hey everyone! Let's talk skincare! After my disaster with the Origins mask, it was a relief to find a deep cleansing mask that didn't dry me out horribly. Everyone, meet the Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask. Heavily lavender scented, it's a very light olive (pista) coloured soft clay mask. It's a bit clumpy and thick in consistency but easy to distribute. I leave it on for 10 minutes, by then the mask is almost white in colour with no uncomfortable stretchiness! It does feel a bit tight, but an adequate amount. I usually rinse it off a…Read more

February 2015 Favourites

My idea of getting through the work midweek is making plans for the weekend! It's all decided, I'm going to be cooped up in my room watching the rest of House of Cards. All I want is Robin Wright's wardrobe! Meanwhile, you can take a peek at what I've been loving the past month. This is going to be a long favourites post! I think it's the first one for 2015. Let's just jump in!   01. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Candy Strip :: I haven't reviewed this gloss yet…Read more
The February 2015 Fab Bag!

The February 2015 Fab Bag!

I have a love hate relationship with beauty boxes. While I always wanted to try the Glossy Boxes of the world, in reality, I just ended up with a bunch of minis I didn't use. On the other hand I loved using those pretty boxes for storage! I have reviewed a few beauty boxes a long time ago. I think FabBag used to be Vellvette and I thought I'd review one this month. It's been a while! The February 2015 Fab Bag*  is centered around the date night theme! Overall, I think it has a…Read more
