Five Friday Favorites #12

DSC00105-1

I have missed you guys so much and it has been so long I shared my favorites with you all!

So here are my current favorites –

The Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter – this is such a gem of a product! I love it! I have even recommended it to so many of my friends. It cleans skin so perfectly and leaves it feeling soft and hydrated!

MAC retro matte Relentlessly red – my favorite bright lipstick at the moment. It is a perfect mix of red and pink and I love how it brightens up my face. I will definitely do a whole post on this.

Lancome kohl eyeliner – I am such a huge kajal collector! I keep trying new eyeliners every time I see something which promises to last long on my waterline. This one was a very random purchase and it is honestly, one of the best eyeliners I have used on my waterline.

La roche posay effaclar duo – this has been doing an amazing job at keeping my skin balanced and healthy. Highly recommended. This tube is running out fast and me is sad !

Victoria’s Secret xo Victoria rollerball – I was looking for a new fresh scent and did not feel committed enough to buy a full bottle, so I bought a handful of such rollerballs and this one is my current favorite.  It is a gorgeous fresh and vibrant scent, with undertones of roses and even vanilla.

I will try to do individual reviews too and link them here.

What are your current favorites? Do share with me in the comments below!

Happy weekend!

Love you guys,

My ‘The Body Shop’ Collection Part 1

I am a huge huge TBS fan as regular readers here might already would know 😛 my mom keeps pointing out how my love for TBS is getting out of hand and so I decided to count out all products I have from the brand and well, the number turned out quite huge :0

This collection is all the products that I have since 3 or more years. And now since I’ve moved to Chicago the collection has got divided as I didn’t take everything with me.

As I was at home in Delhi till last week, I’m showing you all products that are in Delhi right now in part 1 of this collection post and I’ll show you the rest of the stuff as Part 2(and there might also be a challenge for myself in that part) that’s with me in Chicago presently.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter Review.

DSC04489b

The strawberry shower gel by The Body Shop was one of the first products I used and loved from the brand. I have even repurchased that over time. I love this fragrance but somehow never got around to trying other products from this range and finally when I was about to buy their body mist in April I suddenly got my sister’s message that a TBS package has come for me at home (Delhi). I was quite curious as I wasn’t aware of anything like this and it turned out to be TBS strawberry products including the body mist!!! Yayyy 😀 the strawberry range is the scent of the season by TBS and I surely agree 😛

The Body Shop Absinthe Hand Butter Review.

DSC040501

Hey everyone!

I have a kindof OCD about washing my hands alllll the time. I keep smelling my hands and if there is any faint trace of any smell I dislike or any greasy feeling or anything out of place, I run to wash my hands 😛  basically, I wash my hands like a 1000 times a day!!

But despite this, when I was in Delhi, I had almost never bothered to invest in hand creams because..umm.. I don’t know why 😛 maybe because I never did any household work then 😛

But now I feel the need because there is so much dishwashing, cooking, cleaning etc to do so my hands get super super dry 😦 plus the extreme cold!!!

I have like 3-4 types of hand creams near my bed and I just slather on any. And yes, fortunately I’m loving all the hand creams I have 😀

And I’ll soon review others too 🙂

Rant & Rave ~ The Body Shop Lychee Shimmer lip balm.

DSC040161

I am extremelyyyy fond of lychees! I love eating fresh lychees as well as drinking those packaged lychee juices. When I was in college in Delhi, and whenever I had to choose some packaged drink to have in summers especially in metro stations, I always chose lychee juice by this particular brand called Fresca. I don’t know how commonly it is sold in other places but I’ve seen it in almost all shops in metro stations. It’s sold in a normal pet bottle like that of Pepsi and all. I loveeeed that juice and used to have it almost daily in summers during college days! Aah those amazing college days!

Hey everyone!

Winters bring in a lot of dryness to my body especially my legs! You can scratch on them 😦

And Chicago winters are especially harsh and I need good moisture for my body in such weather! I’m honestly scared of going back to Chicago next week, have you seen the news about some polar vortex which has hit the area, Oh God, I hope I can manage 😦

The Body Shop Honeymania Cream Body Scrub Review.

DSC0374212

Hey everyone 🙂

How’s the new year going?

When I went to Chicago in august, I did not take any bath and body stuff with me! Nothing! So I needed to buy some essentials soon. And for my love for TBS and they also had a sale going on, this was one of the first stuff I bought in September.

The Honeymania range hasn’t been launched in India yet as far as I know or it is going to be launched soon I think. I was quite interested to try this range as I’m very fond of honey and its fragrance. So, I bought almost all my essentials from this range itself 😛 I bought this body scrub, bubble bath, EDT and a mini butter from this range and a blueberry butter and this spa wisdom body soufflé.

Before coming to India I took pictures of all things I was ready to review and I’m reviewing this body scrub for you all today! 🙂

Thanksgiving/November big haul!

Hey everyone!

I told you all last week that I’ll show you my November haul soon so here I am! I had not bought a single thing whole of September and October except few essentials for this weather and so I hauled quite a lot of stuff this month.

The sales here during thanksgiving are just huge! I’d heard about the sale season but never knew the extent of the discounts! And most brands start sales at the beginning of number itself!
