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…
