Beauty Blender Dupe for Rs 259 (~$ 4)?? Forever 21 Makeup Sponge

Beauty Blender Dupe in India

The makeup world is still under the domination of beauty blender. The revolutionary tear drop shopped pink sponge for applying makeup is raved by most youtube gurus. There are huge debates on if it is worth 20$ or not. So, the other brands brought in many dupes and copies. But, there were none in India. Luckily, I found these at the Forever 21, Infinity Mall, Mumbai and grabbed them with my huge paws. I have to at least try and see what the fuss is all about…right?

You might be aware of these cute packaged cosmetics that Streetwear (by Revlon) brought to the market few months backs. You can check the nail paints swatch and review here and the lipsticks swatch and review here. As a compact can cause skin issues, I decided to take my time for reviewing this.

Shopping After 48 Days of Shopping Ban // Essentials and Little Cheating


I was on a self-imposed shopping ban. In fact, I am still on a shopping ban. I maintained the whole thing for 48 days (the last time I shopped was here) and that too during the super sale period. Shopped nothing! I was avoiding a visit to the mall to prevent myself from any urge. I was trying to keep calm all the time by saying – I will buy a lipstick from YSL or Estee Lauder when the ban in over.

Interestingly, there is no end date!

But, when my La Roche-Posay Astringent got over, I had to re-purchase that. Sadly, it was not available anywhere online so, I decided the search for something with same ingredients. My search ended for with astringent from Vichy. As I had to visit the mall, I gave it a thought on things that I really needed.

Burt's Bees Honey Collection GIFT BOX Review

Burt's Bees Honey Collection GIFT BOX Review

I have great faith in ‘Burt’s Bees’ products as everything I have ever tried from the brand have worked for me. Sadly, Burt’s Bees products are only available at Sephora Delhi and that too at a very high price. Also, the gift boxes are never available.

When I found that was offering some discount on Burts Bees products, I purchased this box Burt's Bees Honey Collection which is priced at $27.98 but the actual value of the box is $49. Big Save!

Burts Bee Honey and Shea Sugar Scrub Review

Burts Bee Honey and Shea Sugar Scrub Review (225g)

They say - When your skin — or life — starts to feel a little dull, polish your body with Burt's Bees Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub, a delectably indulgent sugar scrub. Humming with the warm scent of Honey and Shea, Ground Almonds and Aloe Leaf Juice combine to gently scrub skin smooth. Leaving your skin irresistibly smooth and oh-so soft. It’s the simple way to brighten both your skin and day.

I say - This is the star of the box. This is a 100% natural scrub so, no nasty chemicals. I love the texture which is granular and yet smooth on skin because of the oil (coconut oil and soyabean oil). It effectively scrubs without irritating or drying skin. I love the luxurious honey smell. The smell and the texture might confuse you to think that this is a food so, the people at Burt’s Bees made it a point to print ‘Do not consume’ on the tub. LOL. The texture of the scrubs reminds me a lot of The Body Shop Chocomania scrub. But, unlike TBS chocomania, Burt's Bees honey shea sugar scrub is sweet. Yes, I tasted it inspire of the warning. It is hard to resist but I won't repeat *pinky-promise*
