Hi y’all!

After being MIA for over a month (zero motivation level) I’m back to creating content and hopefully being regular in posting. Today it is time to share my November Favorites – all the things I’ve loved through the month.

November Favorites
Time to compile my monthly favorites.

1. The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

Starting the list with my most favorite face packs! This is a clay mask which is enriched with bamboo charcoal for the Himalayan Foothills and Green Tea leaves from Japan. You can distinctly see the tiny green tea leaves in it.

It unclogs and refines pores to reveal your natural glow. Skin is deeply cleansed leaving it smooth and glowing. It gently exfoliates and is suitable for all skin types. You can use it 1-2 times a week.

The Bosy Shop Himalayan Charcoal Face Mask
Absolutely love this. Give this a try and you’ll say the same.

Price – 1995/- for 75ml

2. Cetaphil Daily Advanced Ultra Hydrating Lotion

Cetaphil is such a popular and understated brand. It makes amazing skincare products. The one that I’ve loved a lot is there ultra hydrating lotion. It served as a great day cream.

Looking for an affordable and efficient lotion? Cetaphil has some good options.

If you’re someone who has dry skin, then this would be the perfect facial cream for you. It provides an instant boost of hydration. The non-greasy, non-irritating formula makes it suitable for all skin types. It is fragrance free and the non-comedogenic formulation ensures that your pores aren’t blocked. Also it is so affordable.

Price – 164/- for 30gm

3. Sugar Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick

As the name suggests, it is a matte lip crayon. The two colors that I have are – Rose Dawson (05) and Mary Poppins (02).

Sugar Matte as Hell Lip Crayons
True to its name, this lip crayon is matte as hell, yet doesn’t dry your lips.

It is a comfortable formulation which sets completely matte in one stroke. Glides very easily on your lips and doesn’t dry your lips when worn for long hours. Highly pigmented and amazing color pay off. It doesn’t budge or feather which is a great plus. Each lip crayon comes with its own sharpener.

  • Mary Poppins is a bright fuchsia with cool blue undertones. Makes the perfect dupe for Mac Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte Collection).
  • Rose Dawson is a pretty peachy pink, a great everyday color.
Sugar lipsticks
Bonus points for such cutesy names.

Price – 799/-

4. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Maybelline knows their mascaras! I think in the drugstore category Maybelline makes some of the best mascaras and these can give high end ones tough competition. Over the past few months I’ve loved the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (Washable Black).

Crushing over this sensational mascara.

It doesn’t clump your lashes and gives them a voluminous look. I really like the wand; it separates your lashes giving them a fluttery full-fan feel. If you don’t wear falsies, yet want that glam look, then the Lash Sensational mascara is a good pick.

Price – 525/-

5. Biotique Bio Honey Water

If you have not included a toner in your skincare regime, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. Toner is such an important step, and many times a lot of us tend to ignore it. Invest in a good toner, use it regularly, and you’ll surely the difference in your skin.

Biotique honey water toner
I use the toner with the honey water face wash and it has been working pretty well.

Biotique Honey Water toner is a clarifying toner with Himalayan waters. It is an Ayurvedic recipe and is suitable for all skin types. It refreshes and brightens your skin, has a cooling sensation on your skin. The fragrance is mild and goes away in a couple of minutes. It is gentle yet deeply cleanses your skin.

Price – 175/- for 120ml

These are all the things I’ve been obsessing over in the past month. Let me know what are your favorites and if you’ve used any of these products. Bye!

March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.

It’s hard to believe that almost half of 2017 is over. May was a happy productive month. And now it is that time of the month when I sit down to compile my list of favorites.

So here goes, all the things that I’ve loved through the month – May Favorites.

  1. Forest Essentials Roop Nikhar Gulab Ubtan

If you haven’t tried Forest Essntials ubtans, you don’t know what you’re missing in life. Let your skin indulge in the goodness of all things natural with this ubtan. You can mix it with rosewater or aloe-vera gel and use it twice a week.

Forest Essentials
I’ve been biased for all things ‘rose’ this month.
This ubtan though is pure love!

The granules are fine but when mixed it can be used as a scrub as well. The good thing is, it’s gentle on the skin and gives a radiant glow.

I’m not a fan of rose fragrance, but this one seems to be nice. It’s sweet yet not overpowering. The price is on the higher end, but it is worth all the money.

Price – 825/- for 50g

Forest Essentials Gulab Ubtan Review
You can use it as a scrub or as a mask.

2. Biotique Honey Gel Refreshing Foaming Face Cleanser

After a lot of searching, I’ve found the perfect cleanser. Enriched with the goodness of honey, this one is suitable for all skin types and is a 100% soap free formulation.

Biotique facial cleanser
Gentle on the skin, and on the pocket as well 😉

There are times when your face feels stretchy and dry after using a face wash. It won’t happen when you use this cleanser. It lathers well, has a mild pleasant fragrance, gives you squeaky clean skin, and is super affordable (the best part).

Price – 149/- for 20ml

3. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color

What’s a favorite post without some lipstick love! Have been crushing over these lipsticks all this month. There are 10 shades in the range, and I have two of them – Rose Touch and Coffee Lite.

Lakme 9 to 5 weightless mousse
Love the formulation. It’s so light yet highly pigmented.

Both the shades are MLBB (My lips but better), perfect everyday colors.
The application is smooth, they don’t dry out your lips, the staying power is pretty good (will survive a drink, but not a meal). For the price, they are great quality.

Price – 575/-

Ignore the drawing, focus on the creativity 🙂

4. Bath and Body Works Ultra Shea Body Cream

I have the variant – Sensual Amber. And perfect to its name, it is super sensual.
Has a rich creamy texture which gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy. It leaves your skin soft without feeling greasy. Even though it is a creamy consistency, it is perfect for summers.

Pamper yourself with this the goodness of this cream

Richly moisturizing, and an amazing fragrance that lingers on, what else can you ask for? It was a gift by a dear friend, so don’t know the price!

5. The Body Shop British Rose Hand Cream

If you have Sahara Desert hands just like me, then this pleasant smelling hand cream will become your best friend. The consistency is a tad bit runny, but it gets absorbed instantly without leaving your hands greasy or sticky.

The Body Shop
The fragrance 🙂
The feel 🙂

It is moisturizing and keeps your hands soft. The fragrance is the real star. And the best part is that it lingers on for quite long.

Price – 375/-
