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
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
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
Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff

Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff

Soap & Glory has for a long time been a brand I've wanted to try. It's available in Sephora India (which is only in Delhi) but luckily some online shops do carry it as well! The Soap & Glory Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em Body Buff is like a body scrub. It smells amazing, a sweet citrusy scent which isn't too overwhelming. The texture of the scrub is quite good. It has the salt like particles which make up the most content. It has tiny pink bead like granules and there is a…Read more
The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

I was looking for a body scrub that was also moisturizing and not too harsh. I chose The Body Shop's Shea Body Scrub. It was the perfect buy for winter! I used this up a long time ago, but I still had the pictures so I thought I might as well review it. Unlike most body scrubs I've used, this one really does moisture the skin 10x. I don't feel the need to put on moisturizer after my shower when I use this, it makes the skin very supple and it lasts atleast…Read more

Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub

Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub

I'm not always completely on board when it comes to Lush products. Some of them smell really funky or the names just put me off using them. (Note, the bath bombs look super cute!). I had read a lot about the Ocean Salt scrub, mainly how cooling it is and I noticed how larger the scrub particles are. I was on board! Let's see how it turned out! I think there are two types of this product, one is the Ocean Salt body scrub which comes in a larger tub and the other…Read more
The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Scrub

The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Scrub

The Body Shop has its hits and misses when it comes to products. The Cocoa Butter Body Scrub is definitely a keeper. It was one of my first Body Shop purchases and it has a permanent place in my routine. I use it once every other week and its helped exfoliate my very dry and flaky skin. The consistency of the cream is soft and buttery. The cream leaves the skin feeling moisturised and soft, not oily at all. The particles are coarse and not too harsh. I guess it depends on how strongly…Read more
