REVIEW: The Body Shop Vitamin E Skin Care Starter Kit.


The Body Shop Vitamin E skin care starter kit contains the following products –

Vitamin E cream cleanser.

Vitamin E hydrating toner.

Vitamin E moisture cream.

Vitamin E night cream.



Price: INR 1595/-

Available at all TBS outlets.

My experience:



My skin generally is combination type. Oily only on the T-zone and normal otherwise. But in winters my cheeks and the area around the mouth mostly get really dry. It has been terribly cold this time here in Delhi. Plus, my usual Fabindia vitamin E skin hydrating cream and TBS tea tree toner combo were giving me no hydration at all in this dry weather. So I decided to try out something more nourishing for the skin and I bought this kit. I’ve been using it for over a month now and I feel I can give a fair review.

REVIEW: Colorbar Ultimate Eyeliner – 002 French Blue and EOTD for New Years Eve. :)


Colorbar ultimate eyeliner.

According to Colorbar’s website,

Price: INR 499 for 1ml.

Available at all colorbar counters and outlets.

My experience:


I get very nostalgic whenever I see these sketch pen kindof eyeliners. About a year back, I used to envy girls who could apply that perfect eyeliner on their eyes. I practiced a lot with the Lakme Insta liner but never never got it right. Not even once. It was so heart-breaking. I thought I can never get those perfectly defined eyes. Then I saw this VOV sketch pen type liner in my local cosmetics shop, it was being sold for Rs.150/- which came down to Rs.100/- after bargaining. I bought it and voila! I got the perfect line with just 2-3 tries! And that’s why I love such marker style eyeliners. They give the finish of liquid eyeliners without the hassle of the brush and all. After mastering my eyeliner application with the VOV pen, I could now apply even the brush type conventional eyeliners with ease. And I never envied other girls since then. 😀

My experience:


I got this in my October vellvette box here. It’s a sample sized product – of 60ml.

I had never tried anything from Victoria’s Secret before this and I really wanted to. I had heard so much about their amazing scents. But availability of VS products is very difficult here in India, and so I never got a chance. Just a week before my October Vellvette box was delivered to me, I got to know about the Sale on on VS and B&BW products. And so I ordered a body lotion from their sale. And just next week I got one in my vellvette box. But after using it for just 1 day, I hurried to cancel my order with Read on to know why!
