August 2013 Favourites

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
Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub

Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub

Lush has a really good range of lip scrubs. I picked up the Sweet Lips one a couple of months ago. Now I'm not too regular with this. I generally use this when I notice my lips getting a bit cracked. The Sweet Lips lip scrub is actually very easy to make by yourself. Just add sugar and jojoba oil together. The Lush one is basically the same thing mixed together. You apply it to the lips and rub well. This does eventually dissolve but it's also very yummy! Photos below!    …Read more
April 2013 Favourites

April 2013 Favourites

I have a lot of old favourites this month and a couple of new ones as well. Some of the products are ones I use every week and I somehow always overlooked them for these posts. So let's get started!             01. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Phallic Phallic is such a beautiful deep shimmery blue. You could say it's the perfect midnight blue. I will gush more about this in a another dedicated post, but I was wearing this a lot this month. I really loved the…Read more
Vellvette Box : March and April 2013

Vellvette Box : March and April 2013

Hello darlings! In the month of March I decided to give Vellvette a try and went ahead with the 3-month prepaid scheme. For those who don't know, Vellvette is a beauty box service in India which is a monthly subscription. You get a box of beauty, skin, hair related goodies for a very reasonable Rs. 399. Essentially it's similar to GlossyBox or BirchBox. I received my April box last week and thought I'd post the march one as well. April 2013 Vellvette Box   01. Figs & Rogue : Aloe and Mint Balm…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
Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

This one worked! Indeed it did! So after giving Toni and Guy a try, I realized the main problem was the spray not working well. I decided to try a powder dry shampoo instead. Low and behold, Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo! It's a fine off-white coloured powder. It feels like a talc powder which you put on the oily areas of your scalp and roots. You then massage it qiute a bit till your hair appears matte/dry and there's no trace of powder. You kinda have to judge for yourself how much…Read more
September 2012 Favourites

September 2012 Favourites

This comes late on the schedule but these are products I reached out for last month. I'm in love with OPI Parlez Vous. It's such a beautiful colour!           01. Dry Shampoo : Lush : No Drought It's getting warmer and hotter and I so need this on second day hair. It smells lovely and I'm really loving the powder application more than sprays.   02. Lipstick : Revlon : Colorburst in Peach It's a light coral colour. It's looks great. I wish it was a bit more moisturizing though.   03. Eyeshadow : NYX…Read more
