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
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
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
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
Wishlist : December 2014

Wishlist : December 2014

The final wishlist of the year! Seems fitting since it's my birthday in less than a month. I'm allowed a bit of a splurge, right?!   Tom Ford Lip Color in Indian Rose Who wouldn't want this? I'm torn between Indian Rose, Casablanca and a few other shades. Debating which shade I might eventually buy is a nice way to procrastinate from actually buying Tom Ford. I thought about buying from the new limited edition minis collection. But I didn't actually like any of the shades that much. I think I'd rather pay for a…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

Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

You might look at this and think it kind of looks similar to Soap & Glory. That's what I thought when I across Dirty Works. Same retro wit product lines but Dirty Works is like the less expensive sister of Soap & Glory. I came across the range on MedPlusBeauty eons ago and I bought a couple of the products. Clearly, I was in my blogger exploring mood. The Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask  is basically a face mask and a scrub. The scrub part is something I realised after buying it.…Read more
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
Wishlist : March 2014

Wishlist : March 2014

Hope you guys had a great weekend! Best to start off this week with a bit of wishful thinking! This is a more realistic wishlist for me because there are a few products that I might actually end up buying.     01. Origins : Face Mask : Drink Up 10 Minute Mask Heard a lot of good stuff about this mask, might actually buy this. It's a good hydrating mask.   02. Clinique : Blush : Cheek Pop Blush : Ginger Pop I want these, hope they release soon in India. Ginger…Read more
