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
Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

I've been a moisturizer  hopper ever since I started the blog. While I've found good lightweight moisturizers for the summer/travelling (Avene Smoothing Rebalancing Emulsion), when it comes to winter I still haven't found the one. Here's the latest one I've tried. Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream was on my wishlist for a long time. I really wanted to try the brand and the day cream,  it generally had great reviews, seemed like the safest option. Did the deed when I had a voucher on FeelUnique. The minute you open it up, the first thing…Read more
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Hi guys! I'm having a rough week and I really need to sleep more. It's just one of those days where I want to curled up in my blanket all day. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask as you might guess is a cleansing mask. I've been using this for around 5 months now and here's how it's been. I know most people love this product but I haven't had a great experience with it. Firstly, I have dry skin so it's probably a bit too much for me. It's partly my fault because…Read more
Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Hello everybody! I treated myself to a bunch of things as it was my birthday. A couple of these I bought from Nordstrom and got it shipped to a friends place, I actually got them in December and I've had some time to play with them. A few Clinique bits were gifts. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace : Review : That is one heck of a shade! It's like a coral red with a slight neon-ness to it, very bright! I've only used this is a few times but the formula is great! I…Read more
The Body Shop Glazed Apple Range

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Range

The best thing about having friends who celebrate Christmas is getting to eat the lovely cakes they bake. On that note, hope you all had a lovely Christmas/holidays. :) The Body Shop recently released limited edition ranges : Glazed Apple, Frosted Cranberry and Vanilla Brulee. I was all over the Glazed Apple range. I was running out of my Blueberry Body Butter anyway, it was perfect timing. I've used these for the last 2-3 weeks, so these are mini reviews. They're still available on the main website. Glazed Apple Body Butter I love the…Read more
NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

I'm sitting here all cozy in bed, fuzzy socks on my feet, warm sweater on and a nice cup of hot chocolate next to me (when it was written, not posted). It's the perfect mood to talk about a lip balm that makes be feel all warm and cozy. It has many names, like 'Holy Grail Lip Balm', 'The Matte Lip Balm', 'Saviour of Lips', but popularly known as Nuxe Reve de Miel. If you've already used this, feel free to just nod vigorously and express your love below. If you haven't, this…Read more
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
