Summer Skincare Update

Summer Skincare Update

Settle in for a long skincare post! I wrote extensively about my skincare routine a while back. It's been a few months since there are couple of new products I'm playing with. I thought I'd go over my entire routine in brief. I'm on the fence about a lot of them but they seem to be working. Warning, there's also a Pretty Little Liars rant at the end. The Bathroom Situation All my cleansing, toning, face mask products are dutifully lined up on the glass shelf in my bathroom. They're usually not so equidistant.…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
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
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

Avene Gentle Toner

Avene Gentle Toner

It was a nice lazy Sunday for me. Felt a lot like Garfield! I believe I have found the perfect toner for myself! My skin is quite dry and I feel most toners that have alcohol are too drying for me. My skin feels too tight and dried out after using them. This one is a perfect match for my skin type! Avene Gentle Toner is meant for dry, very dry and sensitive skin. It feels really gentle on the skin and is still very effective. This gets rid of the little traces…Read more

August 2013 Favourites

I don't have too many few favourites for the last month. A lot of it is stuff I've been using for a while but failed to mention before. August Favourites :     01. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist (not pictured) I got this in a Vellvette box and I've been keeping this in my office. I love the grapefruit scent, it's very refreshing. The tiny bottle also makes it easy to carry on the go!   02. Toner : Avene : Gentle Toner My previous one was very drying, but…Read more
