Forest Essentials Bath & Shower Oil Indian Rose Absolute

Have you ever had a time when you come home all tired and just wanted to get clean and sleep? You just jump into the shower, get feel freshed now you just want to skip your post bath rituals and sleep; a lazy soul like you needs a bath and shower oil! These are always marketed as a luxury item where you want to feel relaxed, the aroma is supposed to sooth you etc. Honestly, I don’t know how a bath product can relax me but I do like a product where I don’t have to spend 5-10 minutes moisturizing my body when I’m very very tired and sleepy. Forest Essentials Bath & Shower Oil in Indian Rose Absolute is amazing! This is the very first bath oil I bought and I love it! I...

Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & Saffron

Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & Saffron

Finally, a Forest Essentials product I like a lot! I finished using this 2 months ago and realised I still haven’t reviewed it. After the last two Forest Essentials products I used, I wasn’t too keen on them. But I was surprised and quite happy with this one. The Night Treatment Cream in Sandalwood & Saffron is a really rich and thick cream. I used this at night after cleansing and my skin was still soft the next morning. It’s cream/ecru in colour and feels really soft. This gets absorbed pretty quickly and there’s no sticky or greasy feeling. Despite being really thick, it doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin. It instantly makes your skin feel really smooth....

Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Indian Rose & Marigold

Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Indian Rose & Marigold

Happy Independence Day! No, I didn’t get up super early but the loud speakers did wake me up. Today I’ll be reviewing Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion in Indian Rose & Marigold. It’s a very light lotion as the name says, not ideal for winters if you have very dry skin. But it’s great to use for summers when you want something light that will absorb quickly. The consistency is really light but not runny. You need about 2-3 pumps to cover your face and neck with this. It has a mild rose scent that’s also very nice. My only peeve with this is that it doesn’t really last as long. Generally, after 3 hours I feel the bits around my lips getting a bit dry...

July 2013 Favourites

The past month I’ve been sticking to very muted and everyday colours. I discovered a brilliant lip combo that I cannot stop using and some old favourites which need another mention. July favourites :                 01. Moisturizer : Forest Essentials : Night Treatment Cream : Sandalwood and Saffron This smells heavenly! This isn’t the thickest cream I’ve used but it keeps me hydrated all night. I also use it in the morning sometimes id I’ve been lazy with my night routine and my skin is too dry.   02. Nail Polish : Sally Hansen : Pacific Blue I picked up two Sally Hansen polishes a month a go (other one being...

Forest Essentials Body Lotion

Forest Essentials Body Lotion

I don’t quite remember where I got this. But it’s tiny and effective. I used it on the go when I needed a moisturizer. It has a lovely aloe vera fragrance which isn’t overly strong. It isn’t the most hydrating cream in the market but it stays on well for 5-6 hours I guess. It’s cream in colour and gel like in consistency. It feels quite cool when you apply it as well. Photos below!           Checklist Name : Body lotion Brand : Forest Essentials Colour : Off white Consistency : Thick gel like Texture : Soft Fragrance : Aloe Vera and neem Application : Over dry skin Skintype : Any Ingredients: Soybean oil, cottonseed...

April 2012 Favourites

April 2012 Favourites

It’s for the April favourites! I’ve started using tinted moisturizers even more, since its summer. But other than that there are a few products I discovered this month that I LOVE!! Onto the list then!     01. Dry Shampoo : Toni & Guy : Refreshing Dry Shampoo I very curious to dry this out. I don’t want to shampoo my hair everyday and this makes second day hair look a lot better. I don’t think this is the best result but it does soak up some of the greasiness. 02. Tinted Moisturizer : Stila : Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer : 01 Dark With summer on full swing, foundation just isn’t a good match for everyday wear. Stila’s tinted moisturizer...

February Blisscovered Box

I signed up for blisscovered quite late and they offered to send me the February box! The feeling you get when you return home tired from office, and there’s a pretty unopenened package in front of you is too good!! This months contents were quite diverse but I wished there was more makeup less skincare. Afterall, there is only so much skincare you can use in a month. I won’t review the contents just yet. Photo below!           Contents 01. Forrest Essentials – Neem and Saffron Face Wash 02. H2o – Sea Salt Body Butter 03. Calvin Klein – Shock 04. Chambor – Eyeliner in Forever Blue 05.

What’s In My Purse MakeUp Bag

Posted on Mar 29, 2012 in Beauty, Eyes, Face, Lips, Make Up

What’s In My Purse MakeUp Bag

I love watching and reading about these kinds of lists. you get to see so many options and how people use make up ‘in real life’. I don’t carry too much. And I don’t carry a blush or concealer!. I generally use these before I leave. So, this is more of a ‘touch up’ make up bag.     01. Make Up Bag – My mom gave me this bag. I think she got it from Jet Airways. But wherever it came from, it looks good. The material isn’t flimsy and pouch is slim and bends quite well. It’s a bag that can hold less or a lot and still fit well in my purse. Also, the length of this bags fits my powder brush well. 02. Bobbi Brown Mascara – Its...
