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
Summer Haul

Summer Haul

Spanning 90 days and multiple cities, here's what I spent most of my money on this summer. I have used a few of these already so expect mostly raves! Highlight of the post is that I finally caved and bought Tom Ford!! I'm so pleased!! I feel complete. Kat Von D  Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in BauHau5 :: from Sephora (US) :: Intriguing shade name here! Here's how this started. Before KVD the only liquid lipstick that was transfer and kiss proof was the LimeCrime one. I refuse to buy LimeCrime and so my hunt began. For the…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

My Skincare Routine | PM

Welcome to part two of my skincare routine, all about night time! Introduction about my skin type and morning skincare routine are all in this post. My pre-blogging self would be scoffing at this routine. From foam cleanser + Nivea + Vaseline, this is what it's come to! The first part of my night time routine is basically cleansing and toning. I very much prefer using cleansing oils and balms/milk/cream variants. Another addition that I previously did not use is an exfoliating toner. It's really helped with keeping the PH of my skin more acidic. I…Read more

My Skincare Routine | AM

Welcome to the three part series on my skincare routine! The last one I did was in 2013. I wanted to do one last year but I was never quite happy with my overall routine. Part Two is up here! I guess I should start off with explaining about my skin type! Skip ahead if you've heard this a million times already. I basically have dry skin, more so in winters. It's normal during the monsoons when it's humid. I don't really get oily but if it's a really hot summer day I…Read more

February 2015 Favourites

My idea of getting through the work midweek is making plans for the weekend! It's all decided, I'm going to be cooped up in my room watching the rest of House of Cards. All I want is Robin Wright's wardrobe! Meanwhile, you can take a peek at what I've been loving the past month. This is going to be a long favourites post! I think it's the first one for 2015. Let's just jump in!   01. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Candy Strip :: I haven't reviewed this gloss yet…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
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

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

Wishlist : November 2012

Plum is the colour of the season for me. I'm looking for  a good plum polish as well!     01. Vero Moda : Luliana Sequin Top I'm looking for a full sequin top. black is too common and I'm not willing to venture too far from my comfort zone with a full on blingy one. This colour seems perfect.   02. Nars : Tinted Moisturiser in St. Mortiz I've heard a lot of good things about this. I already have a couple to use so I won't be buying this anytime soon.…Read more
