The Frizz Kiss Cooling Explosion Lip Balm review

Hey Ladies! Today we finally went for a short road trip after a long time and our first in Hyderabad. I really enjoyed it,love and hugs to dear husband... xoxo  The water and weather in Hyderabad has left me and hubby with dry lips. And thanks to fab bag again, I received a new lip balm in my December fab bag. The lip balm is from the brand Kronokare. The brand claims the lipstick to consist of Vitamin E,shea butter,bees wax and sun flower oil. It also claims that it restores tired tissues and keep your lips cool until the next kiss..ahem ahem...

Let's first have a good look at the lip balm:




Coming to the review, on application the lip balm definitely makes your lip cool. It has menthol effect on your lips and felt a bit weird on initial application as I was not expecting it. I did love the fact that this lip balm is silicone and paraben free. Another thing I liked about this balm was no white layer is formed on your lips after few hours on application. Also, it does not have any sm…

Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water review

Hey ladies! Holiday season is here and I am enjoying my first holiday. Such a relief from daily job and relief. Today I am going to review the Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water I got in my September fab bag. I have been using the kama ayurveda rose water for a little bit over a month now and I just completely adore it.

I mentioned in my previous posts that I have been using Just Herbs elixir serum along with Kama Ayurveda Rose Water which helped me get rid of the breakout and made my face clear again. So a review of the rose water was pending from my end since some time now :)

I use this rose water religiously at night before going to bed to clean my face. This acts as a toner and cleanser for me and after that I apply the Just Herbs Elixir serum. Sometimes when I am really tired I just use the rose water only and doze off..he he

The rose water provides a very cooling effect on your face and makes it feel fresh.It removes all the dirt from your face very nicely. The best thing about the rose…

Votre deep pore cleansing clay masque review

Hi Ladies! It must already be winter for some of you. But ever since I had to leave Delhi (my hometown) I haven't had the chance to enjoy winters.I really miss them,it's been almost 8 years :(
In Mumbai or Hyderabad where I am now you can hardly feel winters. Anyways, today I thought of reviewing a face masque,precisely a clay masque. It is from Votre. I have used the votre sun mist and quite liked it so I selected this clay masque as I had an option.
I received the Votre deep pore cleansing clay masque in my August 2015 Fab bag .I really like clay masques,so I was really delighted to get this. I have been using original multani mitti as a face masque but it was only easily available in Delhi(2 blocks for 10 rs only :)). I get big chunks of it whenever I visit home and stock it but it eventually runs out before my next visit. So I resorted to other clay masques, I have tried Ayur's multani mitti chandan pack and others similar to it. I have been using biotique masque sinc…

Just Herbs - Rejuvenating Beauty ELIXIR Facial Serum review

Hi dear ladies! Its been 3 weeks now since we landed in Hyderabad from Mumbai and still we haven't settled nicely. Unpacking still going on and we still can't seem to find some of our important stuff. The worst part was, it was so hectic we didn't get time for ourselves at all except for a swimming class one Saturday which was the best day since last 3 weeks. I had a very bad breakout on my face and the pimples didn't seem to go neither I had time to do anything about it. But since last one week they are almost gone!

So here I am today reviewing the magic potion which helped me get rid of the breakouts along with a subtle glow in just one week! Yes, the just herbs rejuvenating beauty ELIXIR facial serum is the miracle worker. I can't thank Fabbag team enough for sending this in the september fab bag.It turned out to be a real saviour in my time of need.
I was very sceptical of using anything on my face as since last 2-3 months as I am having constant breakout. I kind…

Fran Wilson Moodmatcher lipstick - Pink review

Hey dear ladies! I know it's been a while since I posted something but Mumbai to Hyderabad shift had kept me busy all along. We finally got a good place to stay and settled in now. Got the internet connection this Monday :) Loving the weather in Hyderabad,Mumbai was so hot!!! Here it is really pleasant currently and gets cold at night a bit.


Coming back to the review, I am going to provide my feedback regarding the moodmatcher lipstick in Pink shade I got in my august fab bag. For starters let me tell you,it is awesome! I loved the shade, the staying power and it suits my skin tone really nicely.

This lipstick is called moodmatcher because it claims to change color with your mood though I didn't notice anything like that. Also, it comes in bizarre shades such as green,black,blue,orange,yellow. But on application they turn to different shades of pink,some light,some dark.




The lipstick I got wasn't in any of those shades but pink itself. :)Look at the beautiful lipstick:




The sha…

Vana Vidhi Luxury Summer Shimmer Sunscreen review

Summer is about to be over but it's still shining hot in Mumbai. Today I am going to review a sunscreen which is unique in itself because its VEGAN and has SHIMMER. I got this product in my July 2015 Fab bag.

This product claims to be PARABEN free which is cherry on cake.I have used Vana Vidhi body and face scrub earlier and didn't like it that much. But I really liked this sunscreen.Once you open the bottle a very strong smell will strike you. I initially disliked the smell as it isn't fragrant and fresh and smells a bit medicinal but then after few applications I started enjoying it. :/

The texture of the sunscreen is neither runny nor too thick. It is quite good.See for yourself:



I have been using this on my hands and legs since past 2 months and it is almost finished. This shows how much I liked it though I am not too sure about the effectiveness. The cream has a lot of shimmer ,see how shimmery it is:



The ingredient list of this unique sunscreen with shimmer made me a…

Bellapierre Ruby Lipstick review

Hey ladies! Festival season is coming and we would all be decking up for Diwali. I would like to review one of my favorite lipstick shade which I am planning to wear on Diwali. I got this shade as part of my July Fab bag and I am in love with it since then.

The lipstick is from the cosmetic brand Bellapierre and the shade is Ruby.The packaging and cover is not fancy but classy.Have a look.





See how beautiful the shade is in the swatch:






As soon as you open the cover a wonderful fragrance strikes you. I just love how it smells.And the color is just wonderful. Its neither red not pink but a wonderful combination of both. The lipstick appears to be matt but has a bit of glossy finish, not much though. The lipstick is really moisturizing and glides beautifully on lips. It will work wonders even on dry lips.
See how it looks on my lips:


The lipstick last for fair amount of time for 4-5 hours without reapplication and transfers only a little bit.
Cost: The cost of this lipstick is Rs 1500 in India …

Lakme Perfect Radiance - Intense Whitening Compact review

Hey Ladies! We are moving from Mumbai to Hyderabad in a week and so I started to pack things and I found the Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact which expired 2 months back and now I would need to trash it. I am not a compact person but this one was gifted to me by hubby dear. He wanted to buy some makeup for me and bought a small kit which included Maybelline lipstick,kajal  and this compact along with some other things some 2 years back. This compact was chosen by my sis in law who uses these and assisted him in make up shopping.

The shade I have is Golden Medium 03 and it blends perfectly with my skin tone.My complexion is between fair and wheatish. I use this compact sometimes when it is really humid in Mumbai but I have not used it since few months now and completely forgot about it. The compact claims to provide SPF23 UVA/UVB protection which is really good. I used it quite a lot during the March-June season when it was really hot and humid here. This compact provides a very matte fin…

The Body Shop- Satsuma Shower Gel review

Hey dear ladies! Its November but Mumbai is still scorching hot..duh! Today I am going to review Satsuma Shower get from The Body Shop which is keeping me cool and refreshed these days.


Satsuma refers to a seedless mandarin orange originally cultivated in Japan.The satsuma shower gel claims to contain satsuma fruit extract.

The Satsuma shower gel comes in a plastic bottle and looks orange and smells fantastically orange as well. I was pretty bored with my regular soap and wanted to try a shower gel to smell good.I read pretty good reviews about the Satsuma fragrance from Body Shop and decided to give it a go.
The consistency of the gel is neither too thick nor too runny which is good. Let's have a look at the gel and its consistency.




I have bought this around 2 years back and still used only half of it. That explains that I didn't like it that much. The smell is of course really fruity and orange but it doesn't lingers long enough. Another reason was this gel didn't feel m…

Ital Veloce Valvatina fragrance review

Hey dear ladies! I was packing for our one day trip to Lonavala and I wanted to pack a good perfume and this wonderful fragrance sample I got from Fab bag in August came handy. The perfume is from Ital Veloce in Valvatina fragrance.

I got a cute little 12 ml fragrance which will last me few months for travelling and random use. It looks pink and the fragrance is really girly and awesome. The fragrance is neither too mild nor too strong and it lasts for a very good time. One day I applied it in morning while leaving for office but when at night I met hubby he complimented me for smelling so good.

Look how cute the tiny little wonder looks:


I am really enjoying this fragrance,it is flowery and fresh.
Cost: The regular size bottle of this perfume is 210 ml and costs Rs 499
Pros:  Smells really good Good fragrance power, lasts long Affordable
Cons: Couldn't think of any
Rating: 4/5
Would I buy it again: No, it is not as good as one of the itra I use which I prefer to be my signature fragrance.

Soul Tree - True Brick shade lipstick review

Though I am a lip gloss fan instead of lipsticks,I have got few of them which I would like to review. This month I got the soul tree lipstick in true brick shade as part of my October fab  bag.I really liked the shade as its quite natural and seems a bit orangish brown.

The lipstick was packed very nicely and I just loved the fact that it is organic and an ayurvedic product. It claims to consist of almond oil and essence of rose. It seems to be true as the lipstick is quite moisturizing and smells good. The lipstick also lists that it has organic ghee for healing,moisturizing and lightening dark lips and honey for giving a natural pink glow. It is a certified natural product by BDIH. Look how cutely it is packed.


The lipstick really suits me and is looking quite natural and beautiful. I even got a compliment!
Check out how it looks on application. It isn't that dark even on applying 2 strokes. 

The only drawback of the lipstick would be it's staying power. It doesn't stays as …

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula review

I have very dry skin and the weather in Mumbai further aggravates the issue. I have tried various body creams and oils to make it better but no effect. But finally I have struck gold, thanks to Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula.

I have tried bio oil, nivea nourishing body lotion for very dry skin,vaseline cocoa butter,grapeseed oil and the list just goes on,but nothing seemed to work. But recently I received this little magic bottle in my October Fab bag and I am since then in love with it.

This cream seems to be made for me :D

This cream claims to be paraben free and enriched with Vitamin E.It claims to soften,smooth and relieve dry skin which it does perfectly.It claims to provide 24 hr moisture and it actually does that! It also claims to smooth marks and tones skin,but I can comment about that after using this product for long term. I have been using it since just one week.I just fell in love with it after the first day of usage. The texture of this cream is really silky and thick. H…
