The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Cleansing HAIR SCRUB Review

What did you just said? Hair scrub? A scrub for your scalp that refreshes and cleanses? Please take my money and give me one.

But, the more I learned about it, the more debatable it got. Especially the fact that you cannot use it on colored/treated/chlorine affected hair. Now, I am very confused. Luckily, I have a straightforward hair care routine with just five products. All of which are close to natural or as chemical-free as possible (Let me know if you wish to read about that). But, what is the harm in trying something new?

Kama Ayurveda DARBARI Meditate Body Oil

Tired of dry skin in winter? I can feel that sister. Most people don’t moisturize regularly but not me. I used to moisture twice a day. I would finish tubs of Nivea Soft Crème. I loved the fragrance, and I liked how it moisturized without stickiness. After I had gone through my arms worth of Nivea crème, I realized this was not solving the real issue. Right then begin my search for a new moisturizer. The fact that I could use my review for blog motivated me more. But, in the last couple of years, I have concluded that nothing works better than oil. I still use crèmes and lotion, but at times you are in a hurry and do not have the liberty to slather yourself with oil.

I have gone through several body oils and here is another one reviewed for you. 😘

Nainital Shopping Haul (Local Handmade Products and More)

Hello from Nainital - The City with Beautiful Lake

This is my second trip to Nainital. Last time it was in 2011 with Mr. Boy (now my hubby) and this time with my Mom. My grandfather has used to come around this area for business, and he always told my mom that one must visit Nainital once in their lifetime. Nainital is no more as untouched as it used it back when my grandpa used to come but I decided to fulfill her dream to visit Nainital. Thankfully we visited during the non-peak season. I love Nainital far more this time than my last visit. There is hardly any crowd and rates for most tourist areas/activities is fixed.

This is a haul post. If you want a travel post, then let me know. Meanwhile, check my Instagram feed. I am spamming Instastories with pictures of the blue sky, blue-green lakes, and yummy food.

The Body Shop SHEA Body Butter, Shower Cream, Scrub, Body Mist, and Hand Cream Review

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter, Scrub, Shower Cream, Hand Cream, and Body Mist Review

I thought maybe Delhi winter is over, but it is not. The temperature dropped again. I am not complaining here. I am happy. I know that once these cozy blanket days are gone, we will be sweating from all our pores in Delhi summer. Its either ice or fire in Delhi. There is nothing in between. Le sigh.

In this weather, the one thing that encourages me to take a shower is The Body Shop Shea range. I first discovered the Shea body butter back in 2010. It was my first body butter. Back then there was hardly any brand having shea products. The nutty aroma of shea made me feel as I am in a safe cocoon unharmed by the world. (I used to live in a Gurugram PG back then.) I kept the tub beside my pillow. Using it was my everyday ritual.  Over the years, I have used all the products from the range of the soap and body lotion. The only thing I haven't used is the Shea Beautifying Oil.

Also, now, we have several shea butter products available in India. So far, I have failed to find anything up to the match of The Body Shop.

Now, sitting in Nainital (where the temperature is lower than Delhi), I realize how much I love this. Absence makes the heart grow fonder? Eh?
