Hello beauties,

Monsoons are here in full flow and they are taking a huge toll on my hair as well as skin. My face has experiences an unusual spurt in acne growth on my cheeks over the past few months (gross!!!). I have been trying various options to calm them down but to no avail. I shifted to time tested options but they helped only to an extent.
Then, I got the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo(+), highly raved, reviewed and loved product of many beauty bloggers. Read on to know how it fared for my skin...

Kama Ayurveda Lavender Water Face and Body Mist

Hello beauties,

Monsoons have just hit north India and the heat is now more bearable but with oodles of humidity. My skin is worst hit at this time due to excess of humidity, which prevents me from using moisturizers, leading to dullness and acne. However, I have found a solution to provide moisture to my skin by using facial sprays or mists. The latest in my vanity is Kama Ayurveda Lavender Water Mist. Read on to know how it fared on me...

Kama Ayurveda Pure Vetiver Water Review

Hello beauties,
How are you guys coping with the changing seasons, from hot to humidity and then back again to the hotness! This weather does tend to take a toll on my skin and the result is breakouts and dull skin. My solution to tackle this problem skin includes washing my face several times a day with a good face wash, using an aloe vera gel instead of moisturisers, and using a refreshing and cooling toner for sure.

Though I love using toners on my skin throughout the year, but during the monsoon season, the toners become life savers for my troubled skin by providing a boost of freshness to my skin. In fact, I spritz toners several times a day to refresh my skin. Currently, am using the Kama Ayurveda Vetiver Water as a toner and a body mist.

Price: INR 645 for 200 ml of the product

Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UVScreen Matte Gel SPF 50 Photos, Swatch, Review

Hello beauties,

Today I review one of the more popular sunscreens in the market out there. I have had a love hate relationship with Lotus Herbals since eternity. Even during my college days, I would buy Lotus Herbals products and would love some and would hate some. Hence with a lot of apprehension in my mind as to whether I would like the product or not, I went ahead and bought the Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UVScreen Matte Gel with SPF 50.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sun Block Photos, Swatch, Review

Hello beauties,

Summer is all upon us and I am trying to save my skin as much as possible from the breakouts and sun. In addition, have been trying to escape gorging on sugary drinks and ice creams. However, I do give in to my cravings once in a while.

This month, I have been planning to a series sort of thing, on summer skin care products, sunscreens, toners etc. as they are an important part of our skin care (or should they be...), and to review some of these products readily available in the marketplace. 

Today, I am reviewing a sunscreen from Neutrogena, Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sun Block with helioplex with which I have been associated for long.

Just Herbs Facial Serum v/s Votre Face Serum

Hello beauties,

Today I am going to do for the first time ever a comparison post between two serums, both of which I received through Fab Bag and both of which I quiet like.

Forest Essentials Best Body Scrub (ever!)

Hello beauties,

It is a Sunday, it is a Sunday, it is a scrubby day!!! Yipeee....

That's actually how I begin my Sunday mornings, getting all excited about the wonderful spa experience I will indulge myself in, wind down the stress (accumulated from the week before) and prep myself up for the coming week. Sometimes you just need one product can make you feel like a princess (or queen in my case).

And the product which helps me do it is (drum rolls) Forest Essentials Cane Sugar and Tamarind Body Polisher (best for for normal skin). My first tryst with this happened around 7-8 years ago, when I was still doing my Ph.D. and I was visiting the newly opened Select City Walk with a friend of mine.

While roaming around, I saw the lovely Forest Essentials counter, where there is Sephora today and went inside wanting to explore the lovely aromatic scents filling up the air. There I met this great product for the first time, it was prices around INR 950 back then. My friend though I was crazy to buy such an expensive product, but me... I have been an impulsive buyer for most of my life.

My Latest Skin Care Addi(c)tions

Hello beauties,

With the changing weather and accompanied skin care needs, I was having great difficulty with my skin. Though I have been blessed with a good skin (genetically) with fewer problems, I was stumped to see a dull and lifeless skin with lots of milia staring at me daily.

But then, a sort of miracle happened... I received my July 2015 Fab Bag with the two cutest little products from Ayorma, which would change my skin forever(??). I took these two cuties with me for my short getaway (read HERE) and was blown away…

The Ayorma scrub and the face wash is the best product combination for you if you have a dull and lifeless skin and you are looking for deep cleansing and brightening products.
