Bidding 2015 Bye Bye & I spy with my little eye

Source Google


I just cannot believe that 2015 came in and flew by so swiftly almost like a blink of an eye. So many things happened this year that I am happy to accomplish many things. For starters, I started this tiny little blog of mine. As 2015 is bidding adieu to me, I decided to give my little baby a new home, so got a new domain www.therainbowladyblog.com. Well I have a little problem with it which I am not able to resolve. After I imported, I lost all my lovely comments from all of you. Can anyone of you help me in figuring out how can I get all my Google+ comments back. ( Begging with hands joined and tears flowing down her cheeks like hose pipe

Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eye Shadow Stick in 004 Moss and pictorial EOTD

Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eye Shadow Stick in 004 Moss
I love eye shadows and everything to do with eye make up. I believe that eyes can speak a thousand emotions without your lips fluttering any word. Properly done eye make up can do a lot of things. It opens up your eyes, make dull and tired eyes look lively. And when you do not have much time to doll up your eyes with elaborate eye shadow sessions, something which is multi tasking, quick and easy to use can be your savior. One of those thing is the new Colorbar all day water proof eye shadow stick. I had to get it when I saw Colorbar posting pictures of it in their Instagram profile. I have picked up the color in 004 Moss. They have 7 shades, swatches of which I have posted on my Instagram account (@shampita_trl) quite some time back. Do check out my Instagram and follow me for more updates. Read on to know more about it.

Mane up with Findingdream.com





I was sitting by the window locked away on the tower so high
Listening to the gusting of winds and songs of the birds flying by
Looking back at my chamber floor where lies my golden lustrous mane
And thinking to myself, when will my Prince Charming come,
Oh when will he rescue me from this life mundane
Just as I caught a glistering tear drop rolling low,
A sweet and firm voice beckoned me from down below.
*
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, so that I may climb thy golden stair
*
As I looked down my window with joy, the voice faded
The sweet gentle face of my prince charming started to look jaded
I tried to plummet towards him with my arms opened wide,
But I found myself waking up with an inconsolable and racy heart
There goes my Prince charming and also goes all that hair
It was all a dream, alas a dream that ended.

Oh having lustrous and long mane like Repunzel is only a dream and that dream can be found at findingdream.com

Four Season's sheet masks review from Skin18.com + A 25% off discount code

Four Season's sheet masks review from Skin18.com
This post is such a long due for me. I had ordered so many sheet masks from Skin18.com. And they have come really handy for me too. If I wanted to relax I would just put a mask on. And before doing that I always used to forget to take pictures. When I finished almost all the masks and these 4 were left, I clicked the pictures before hand, so that after I use them I can post a review on it. I mostly loved all of them, but I am going to share with you the Four Season's ones. These ones are a wee better than the others that I got.

Plum Goodness Green Tree Pore Cleansing Face Wash Review

Plum Goodness Green Tree Pore Cleansing Face Wash
Hey Everyone,

I have been quite busy the past week with back to back weddings, so blogging took a back seat and posts kept piling up. I would be posting some back to back post of products from same brand in the coming days that I have been using in recent times. Today one such post is from Plum Goodness. Many bloggers have raved about their products so I purchased the whole green tea range including the face wash, toner, moisturizer and the face pack.

November'15 Empties and Declutters

November'15 Empties and Declutters
November is over and so is some of my skin care products. Can't believe its the end of year already. December flew in so fast, and the year as well moved so fast. This weekend I was sorting through my makeup stash and found that many of the products are lying there which have expired and I do not use them any more, so it's time to get rid of them as well.

Stocking up my makeup stash for the wedding season

Cosmetics Haul

Wedding is season in on, and for me it is on with a full bang. I have back to back weddings to attend starting from November till January the next year as of now. So I had to stock up on some of my make up items. The number one being the Foundation. I have been using Revlon Colorstay for quite some time but this time around I thought to try something new. And I so wanted to try the new Infallible Foundation from L'oreal. But wait I got Maybelline Dream Satin too. Read on to know why I got two different foundations.


Look what I just unboxed : Makeup Revolution UK Haul


Makeup Revolution Haul

Makeup revolution has become almost a cult favorite with all the beauty bloggers and make up artists all over the world. This not too old brand has great dupes of some of the luxury makeup products which are too expensive to buy. I have been eyeing Makeup revolution for quite some time and this time I just could not resist but gave into the temptation. Did you know makeup revolution even has an Indian online store, but I ordered the products from Makeup Revolution UK online store. I ordered on 12th November and the package came to me on 27th Nov. It was bubble wrapped and packaged in a plastic bag. I wish they had packed in a card board box.


Fab India Honey and Oatmeal Face and Body Scrub Review



Exfoliation is a must any time of the year. Did you know exfoliation helps in removing tan as well. A friend of mine told me that if you are on a beach vacation and if you scrub daily during your stay after sun exposure, lot of your tanning would be removed. Well I did not know about it, but then I thought if I scrub afterwards also, the upper dead skin would scrub off which might reduce the tanning a bit. So I go this scrub to put her theory to test. But let me tell you, this scrub in no way claims to remove tanning.


New Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair non greasy body lotion // Review



Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair non greasy body lotion
Vaseline and Boroline are two products which is probably common is all Bengali household. Though most of us youngsters in the family have shifted to variety of other body lotion available in the market, but the old ladies in my family starting from my mother, mother in law, aunts and even grand mothers still swears by it. Somehow I never liked Vaseline, though the aloe vera variant was still ok but the total repair and the chocolate one, no I never liked them. I always felt that they were too greasy and my nose did not like the smell of these two variants. So when Vaseline introduced their new variant, I picked it up for my mother in law when she asked me to get what ? yes, VASELINE body lotion. I used it from my mother in law just to check if this really lived up to its claim.


Your upcoming Holiday parties / Prom are sorted with dresses from promtimes.co.uk

A-line Sweetheart Sleeveless Knee-length Dark Navy Chiffon Prom Dress

The holiday season is just around the corner where we have so many parties to attend, starting from Christmas to New years. Every year it's a serious dilemma on "What am I going to wear ?", or "Last year I wore this dress and my friends have already seen me in it, cannot repeat, so what will I wear ?" or the prom is coming up, and the graduation party, or the office party so gals we need to have dresses handy don't we.

Well this brand Promtimes from UK has got you covered. They have amazing prom dresses and at an remarkable prices under 50 GBP. Though the brand labels these dresses as prom dresses but I personally feel that with their so many varieties and designs their dresses can easily be worn on holiday parties, wedding parties not particularly only in prom, which we Indian wish we had in our schools and colleges.

Look at this A-line Sweetheart Sleeveless Knee-length Dark Navy Chiffon Prom Dress in the above picture. For a Holiday party pair this dress up with a faux fur cropped jacket or a sequined jacket and you are bound to make some head turn.

Studio West Pure Passion Vivid Nail Colour in 360 Latte
Westside has recently launched their in house makeup and skincare line called Studio West. Their makeup line is quite affordable and has some great line of products. I went to pick some of their stuffs, but to my sadness the only things the Camac Street Westside had was nail polishes. The SA told me they were out of stock of everything else. How strange. So I picked up only nail polish. There are were some great colours available but what too my fancy the most in this beautiful coffee colour called 360 Latte. They have all variants by the way, glitter, metallic, pastels. Do check them out.


Fab India Lemon and Mint Foot Scrub Review and Swatch



Fab India Lemon and Mint Foot Scrub Review and Swatch
Hey All, Hope you all had an amazing Diwali. I had a safe one, I flew sky lanterns which eco friendly and animals friendly. No furry friends ran for cover for this. I steer clear of any noisy and polluting fire crackers. Doing my part to save the environment I guess.

As winter chills sets in and feet starts to get even more drier so weekly scrubbing is a must. Today, I am going to share with you my views on this foot scrub from Fab India.



Recipe : My Gluten Free Brownie

Gluten Free Brownie

Brownies are one of the easiest things to make and the most yummiest thing to eat. I cannot count the number of times I have baked them, shared them with friends and made them more as request from friends. The recipe is simple, one pot wonder and no laborious whisking and too much cleaning. My one has the goodness of oats in it which is again kid friendly and waist line friendly, well somewhat. My family and friends loves these little squares of joy and I am sharing the same with you all today.



Kali Puja inspired nail art // Happy Diwali to all

Diwali Nail Art

What is Diwali to the rest of the world, for a Bengali it is Kali Puja. This form of the divine Goddess is in her most powerful form. She wards off evil and to perform the puja rituals it does take a lot pure devotion and strength. Usually we fast the whole day and only at night the puja ritual starts which continues till dawn of the next day, During Durga Puja I did want to do a Durga Puja inspired nail art but somehow it did not happen. So this Kali Puja ( same day as Diwali) I am making up for it. So here is my Kali Puja inspired nail art.


Soultree nutgrass and neem with soothing chamomile Face Wash Review

Soultree nutgrass and neem with soothing chamomile Face Wash Review
On my last post about my October empties I have posted about this face wash which is my absolute current favorite and I have already finished a bottle and my second bottle is almost half way through. This face wash is my latest find on another SLS freee and harsh chemical free face wash which is ever so gentle on skin.

If you are planning to get organic stuffs do visit this store, they store everything from food to skincare to even clothes. I love going to this store for all the rainbow feeling. Get it .. the rainbow lady visiting the rainbow store. Cliche much !!


What I finished using in October


Hey everyone, I am back with another edition of my empties post. I love doing this post as much as I love reading all about it of other bloggers. This post in particular gives a sense of accomplishment that yes I have finished something and also acts as a reminiscence when I would want to look back to see what had actually worked for me and what did not, in case my brain decides to forget. ( N.B I have a curious case of wandering brain, so it tends to forget a lot of things ). So lets jump right into it.

The Leibster Award






I am elated, honored and motivated to blog even more thanks to these amazing ladies in the blogging network who nominated me for "The Leibster Award". The year 2015 has been so special for me. The urge of that "doing something extra to make life interesting and worthwhile " had got me into blogging. I have been an ardent follower of the blogging world since a long time and always wanted to have my own blog. But then laziness used to take over.


Makeup Academy Spring Break Eye shadow Palette Review and Swatch

Makeup Academy Spring Break Eye shadow Palette Review
Do you want to know the height of laziness about a product? Is it always an eye shadow palette. As I am an hairy scary monster I have to wait until getting waxed so that I can swatch and post. Reason ? Who like hairy swatches !! OK now the height of forgetfulness ? Again me forgetting about this palette to swatch after every waxing season. I got this in Summer and Hello Autumn, this still could not make an entry as a post until today. This October I had sworn to myself I WOULD post about it during the first week, and this is end of October. Again thanks to my vagabond Mr. Brain ( who travels from thoughts to thoughts quite frequently and forgets quite a bit of stuffs), I forgot AGAIN !! So I was like this is it, hair or no hair on hand, I am going to swatch and share my view. So Guys please bear with any nastiness that you might see in the swatches. Hi Hi Hi


FOR THE LOVE OF FRIES ....




Potatoes, a humble vegetable that we Bengalis just can not do without. Our curries along with any kind of side dish imaginable, has this little buddy in it. I grew up this humble vegetable in all form since my childhood. I ate Daal (pulses), Bhaat ( rice ) and Aloo bhaja ( fried potatoes ) technically my whole life. I remember all my student days when my mother used to rush in the morning to prepare our lunch boxes and our breakfast before heading off to school, the breakfast always included these three items, as these are the simplest ones which she could manage to prepare at early morning. Still today when most of our lunches, snacks or dinners are either at the office canteen or at restaurants, when I want to dig in to my comfort food, yes, you guessed it right, it is the Daal, Bhaat and Aloo bhaja and I am a happy soul. By the way, this is 'The go to comfort food' for my whole family too. My father, brother and also my husband just can not leave without the humble Aloo Bhaja. Aloo Bhaja has been an integral part of my life and this is something that I can never grow tired off.


Kama Ayurveda Lavanya Natural Plant Mask Review

Kama Ayurveda Lavanya Natural Plant Mask 
A big Hello to you all from me. Durga Puja is almost over and I wish you all a very Happy Dusshera. I have enjoyed my Puja times a lot with Puja pandal hopping, Phukcha ( gol gappa ) eating. standing in long queues in front of the restaurants for hours to get dinner and of-course eating greasy, oily, rich food to my heart's content. With all that, my skin was bound to revolt. It felt more oilier, stickier and grimier. It needed to come back to its old vigor, and for that I found myself banging in the door of this tiny steel jar from Kama Ayurveda. I had used this only on an off may be only twice in the past. But during this Puja times I have used it daily. Yes, you read me right, daily. A face mask DAILY for past 5 days. Did it really work ?


Durga Puja Special Eye Look Book

Ok, so here's the deal. I love eye make up and love to make it look dramatic. But, yes there is a 'BUT', if I head out with something like the one in the above picture, God forbid, I would be looked upon, frowned upon, talked about, laughed at and so many other things. Our society still cannot accept over the top dramatic, well some of it. And I do not wish to be the talk of the town and be the sentence of everyone's mouth like : " OMG, what had she done with her eyes !!". So I am going to sport something toned down, yet classy and glamorous, an eye make up which is suitable for my tiny hooded asian eye ( so not a Bengali feature ).

Panchami Special - Doi Murgi Recipe ( Bengali yogurt based chicken gravy )


I am excited, full to the brim and I just can not hold it in, because its Durga Puja and it is "The Time of the Year" I keep waiting for all year around. During this period when rest of the country fasts for Navaratri, a Bengali eats, he/she eats to his/her heart's content. All restaurants revives their menu, special editions are added and in homes, it's time of whip up something special every day. Today is Panchami, and it's falling on a Sunday, makes the Puja Pandal hopping and enjoying the festivities to start a day early. And what special and incredibly easy dish came out of my kitchen, is this Doi Murgi to commence the start of all the festivities. A well known dish to most of the Bengalis, it's delicious  and tastes great without much effort put into it.


Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Gel Eyeliner in Metallic Bronze and Grey Ash

Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Gel Eyeliner in Metallic Bronze and Grey Ash
Durga Puja is knocking on the door and for a Bengali girl, this is the time to renew her look with her new clothes, new make up, new hair cut. The whole make over that she decides to go under is all for this special occasion.

This festive season I decided to get my glam on and sport smoky lined eyes with colors other than black. I have tried the Black from the Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Collection and loved it. So I got these Fall friendly variants in Metallic Bronze and Grey Ash for the coming cooler seasons.


An easy Fall Inspired Nail Art

Fall Inspired Nail Art


Its Fall, it's Fall, it's Fall and it's time for festivities, cooler weather, hence better hair and skin. And also it is the time for all the tones of reds, plums, browns, golds, coppers to make it's appearance back into the palettes may it be eye shadows or nail colors. So I decided to do a simple fall nail art with falling autumn leaves in vibrant tones of reds. This is a recreation of a nail art that I spotted some time back on instagram and decided to do it as it is the easiest of all.

Why recreation you ask ? : My brain is currently not flowing any creative juices, it is on strike due to immense work pressure at office.


Just Herbs Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum // Review



Just Herbs Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum

Hello Ladies, How's your weekend going. I just came back from the movies and watched "The Walk", the movie gave me a happy jive and a smile on my face. Loved it. Another thing that is giving a smile on my face these days is the newly launched Just Herbs Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum. I was eyeing this product since the time Just Herbs introduced this on their instagram page and thanks to Fab Bag on their September Issue, I got this in it to try. Since the day this has landed on my lap, I have been religiously using this only as part of my night care routine and Oh Boy did it show results !! This brand has never failed to impress me. I have tried quite a few of their products, and most of them did end up in my good books.


Vichy Capital Soleil Velvety Cream SPF 50+ UVB+UVA Advanced UV Protection for normal to dry sensitive skin // Review and Swatch



 
I love Vichy products and they have pretty much worked well on my skin. Today I am going to share with you my experience on their sunscreen. When I got the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox, the SA gave me a sample of this sunscreen and she gave the variant for the oily and combination skin. It lasted me for 3 uses and my skin just loved everything about it. So when my Neutrogena sunscreen was about to finish, I went and got the full sized tube of this one.

Now, the day I went to NewU ( stores Vichy products in Kolkata), the Vichy SA was not there so I just asked some another SA to get me the Capital Soleil and I billed it without even checking that she gave me the variant meant for dry skin. The tube was lying in my cupboard for quite some time until the Neutrogena was over. So for a long time I did not realize that I have the wrong variant with me until very recently, even after using it all through out summer. Read on to see how this has fared on my extremely oily skin in Indian summer.


Highlights from our trip to Puri, Odisha




Puri (Odisha) holds a special place in a Bengali's heart. To some it is a pilgrimage, to some it is a beach vacation destination, even a honeymoon destination for some. Whatever it may be, ask a Bengali about Puri and he/she would have been here at least once in their lifetime. With this trip being my third, every time I have been here, it enchants me and makes me want to visit the place forever more. With its rich history of the Kalinga kingdom, the temples and its mysteries, this is one place which beckons us to visit every year. If a long weekend is coming up or not, if a Bengali is planning for a vacation, Puri is the first place that comes in mind. Same happened with us as well. Me and my husband so oblivious about mandatory holidays due to work pressure, forgot all out Bakhri-Eid falling on a Friday. When it did register to us the week before, we gave no second thoughts and booked our train tickets, called up the hotel where we usually stay (Hotel Gajapati, in case you are curious) and saved our long weekend from going to waste.


Weekend Breakfast : My easy healthy pancakes with home made pancake syrup




Come weekend and it's time to indulge. no matter if you are on diet or not ( like me ). I usually whip up something special and most of the time I rush and do not get ample time to take pictures and share the recipe. But today's is an exception, as it's again a long weekend, and most of my Saturday chores I have finished yesterday. So now I can sit back relax, enjoy my pancakes while typing this post.

August '15 Empties



It's been ages since I did an empties post. Well I did store up my empty bottle to let you know about my favorites and not so favorite ones, but my maid threw my previous to this collection unknowingly. Hence, this post has been long due. But I have learned my lesson from this ordeal and I have managed to keep my current empty bottles away from my maid's curious eyes.


Chambor Ultra Glide Eye Liner Pencil in Purple Haze // Review and Swatch

Chambor Ultra Glide Eye Liner Pencil in Purple
 Hello Lovelies,

It was a long weekend with Id falling on Friday, perfect time to get away. So me and my husband went to Puri (reason for my MIA over the weekend and not being able to reply to your comments and read your blog updates). I am back today morning and back again with review of another product from Chambor. I used this as part of my EOTD while reviewing the Mascara from Chambor. Emmy from Make up with Emmy asked me about what I used. BTW if you have not checked out her blog, please do, I am fan of her amazing eye look creations.

So this eye pencil is Chambor's Ultra Glide Eye Pencil which has been in the market for quite some time, but I never tried it. And I got this as a free gift when I purchased the Chambor Infinite Lash Mascara, who does not love free goodies.


Chambor Infinite Lash Lengthening Mascara // Review


Chambor Infinite Lash Lengthening Mascara


If you think there's no such things as a magic wand, you have clearly never used a Masacara


Mascara is pure Magic, and there's never a thing as too much mascara. And this girl, never runs out of it, there's always one in her make up bag. I feel you can never go wrong with Eyeliner, Lipstick and Mascara. Although I swear by The Falsies by Maybelline. But there's no harm in trying other brands isn't it ? And specially this one which claims to actually lengthen your eye lashes and make them longer.


The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion // Review and Swatch






We Bengalis have a thing for tea, and me is no exception in that department. I love tea and every kinds of them. So green tea in skin care products, got me even more interested. I am unfortunately not one of those lucky bloggers who would get goodies from The Body Shop to try and write about it. So I have to shell out my money, and when The Body Shop launched their Fuji Green tea collection, I only got the one product that I know I need the most currently. It's almost fall, and I do not need heavy body butters yet, and I already have my stock of body washes, scrubs, fragrances for the season. I was running out of body lotion though and had to get one, so why not try the newly launched one. I have got this around a month back, and I have been using it ever since. In case you are wondering what these leaves are in the pictures, well yes these are green tea leaves which I took from my father's store ( he has a business of tea leaves).

September 2015 Fab Bag | Third Anniversary Issue




First of all Happy Birthday to Fab Bag and I wish that you grow more fabulous in the years to come.

This month I am truly happy with Fab Bag as it has exceeded all my expectations. I did not chose to order for the month of August, only because I did not get the products I was expecting in the July Bag. But when I saw beauty bloggers post their September Bag, I just could not wait any longer and ordered mine, hoping to get all the products as others did. And guess what I got the same too. The bag contains all the products that I actually wanted to try and I am glad that I am getting them at a cheaper price through Fab Bag.

My tiny Kama Ayurveda Haul - Repurchase and New


Last year this time around when Autumn was about to set in, I made my rendezvous with Kama Ayurveda with their face creams both Eladi and the Brightening Night Cream. This is the time when your skin starts to get a a bit dry and the air gets drier and cooler, and this is the time when you have to part your ways from your favorite summer time night cream for oily skin ( Vichy Night detox in my case ). I could think of no other night care cream than the Kama Ayurveda.


A touch of oomph to your lustrous mane by CC Hair Extensions



Source
Come award season and I am literally glued to TV or YouTube on the latest fashion of celebrities. I just love ogling on their Dresses, Jewelry, Hair and make up and all that glitter. One celebrity of my fancy is Eva Longoria, always on the best dressed list and most importantly, her amazing luscious mane. Since her Desperate Housewives days, I always wondered how she managed to maintain all that hair, how they are so so gorgeous all the time. Some are blessed with the good hair genes I guess. And for some like me, is there a thing called the worst hair gene ? If so, I am the proud possessor of it. And that gene is mutating or evolving to be even worst than what it is already day by day. So for the girls who are in the same boat like me or not, who wants to flaunt thick bouncy gorgeous hair, for them move over wigs, say Hello to hair extensions. And there is one particular company called the CC Hair Extensions, who has amazing collections of Indian Remy hair, of good quality and looks natural for us to try.


Indiblogger Berger XP Kolkata Bloggers Meet Sept 2015



When I say I had a fun Saturday, the statement would be quite understated. I am actually running out of adjectives to describe this amazing event that Indiblogger hosted with Berger Paints specially for us "The Kolkata Bloggers".The event was held at the Ball Room of The Oberoi Grand Hotel, the venue itself makes it such a Gala evening. This beautiful vintage room just came alive with all these lovely people who all shares one common passion, write and express oneself without being judged and of course have a voice. With fun events, Berger Express Painting Presentation, prizes, goodies and last but not the least, the yummy spread of the Grand Buffet, altogether made the evening simply splendid.


Rustic Art Aloe Delight Shampoo - An SLS/SLES/Paraben Free Vegan Shampoo // Review



Dear Sulfates,

I do not like how you behaved with me and how you make me feel. The touch of you irritates me, make me cry and remembering all the pain that you have put me through, I do not want you in my life any more. I would do just anything to keep you thousands miles away from me. I have managed so far, and I promise you that I would continue to do the same.


With not so much love,
My Skin.


After that heart wrenching letter I am never going to torture my skin with sulfates again. And in my quest to do so, I landed on a shampoo by the brand called Rustic Art. The variant that I am sharing with you today is their Aloe Delight.


Lotus Color Kick Kajal Review and Swatch

Lotus Make-Up Color Kick Kajal

Indian women and her kajal has an eternal bond which can never be broken. All of us have at least one, and would probably never be seen without it. Few days back, a friend of mine at office came literally running to me after she returned from her work assignment in Bangalore and these were her exact words :
" You have got to try this out, this is best kajal I have used so far, its stays on for forever"

There was that excitement in her voice which saying it loud and clear that she had found her soul mate. She got me excited too and I made no delay and that weekend I got this.

I have been using this ever since and today I am going to share with you my side of the story.


The Body Shop Strawberry Lip Butter Review



Ahh the lips !! Why do you get so dry and chapped sometimes ?

My lips tends to get dry quite often because of chilled indoor AC at work for almost 10 hours a day. Life of an IT Professional !! So I just cannot do without a lip balm, lip salve, lip butter or any thing that takes care of chapped lips. Recently during the TBS Sale, I purchased this lip butter as I was almost done with the lip balm of the same variant. And this has been part of my daily nightly skin care routine without fail. Read on to know whether to get this or to skip this.


Where to get Korean Face Sheet Masks for FREE !!




Do you like Korean Skincare ? Have you ever tried any ?

I was always astonished with the Korean women on how flawless they are. If you read about their daily beauty regime, you would surely be overwhelmed to see how many products they use and how strict they are on their beauty regime. I really want to talk to the Korean women and ask her how do they manage all that maintaining work, home and everything else. Truly amazing.

Well, I am no Korean, and I certainly do not have all that patience to perform skincare routine. So my best possible options to try to have an amazing skin is with the easy peasy just like a daisy approach of "Face Sheet Masks"

And then I landed on Skin18.com

Current Bath and Body Favorite // The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish and Body Sorbet




Hello my lovelies, today I am going to share with you a bath and body combo that I have been loving this summer. These are the TBS Satsuma Body Polish and Body Sorbet. Amongst the fruity ones this particular range has been undoubtedly my all time favorite. I have already used shower gels, body lotion, body butter from these range, but never tried the body polish before and their recently introduced body sorbet. So in the recent TBS Sale I picked both these beauties up to try.
