Favorite Series - Comedy and Drama

It was my second year of engineering - 2006 - started watching 'Friends' - the rite of passage for all binge watchers. It was only regional movies and series for me. It began to become a hobby then - arrange things and binge watch. Start a new series on the laptop and while watching dump all things you own on your bed, clean shelves, and categorize them as to keep and to throw/donate, and gulp down shows after shows. It is still my favorite hobby but not something you can frequently do when you have a permanent roommate grunting that I eat up all the space on the bed.

Forest Essentials RASA Activating Serum and TEJAL Balancing Water Review

Is there a medical term to describe my uncontrollable urge to get new skincare because the ingredients are just way too good? Please give me a yes because I do not wish to be branded as a shopaholic.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay - if you have not heard about this detox mask then sister, you must be living under a rock. The whole world knows about this. A cheaper answer to all the maddening skyrocketing skincare treatments in the world. Mix it with apple cider vinegar, and you have the magic potion ready. 

Therefore, this was in my to-try list. Unfortunately, I forgot to add it my card initially while purchasing products from iHerb. I made another purchase from iHerb just to add this.

For weeks, I was contemplating the idea for how risky it might be - it literally says - feel your face pulsate!

Pixi Skin Treats GLOW TONIC Exfoliating Toner (5% Glycolic Acid, No Alcohol)

I used to believe that I spend the most money on face oils. I still do, but then I discovered something even more important and worth spending money - toners. I have my kidney worth toners in my stash. Some are just facial water posing as toners to get into the big boys club to glamorous marketing and fancy names. Some work great as face mist but yet wish to break free from their category. One of them confidently says, "Glow tonic."
Is it?

Why Pixi Glow Tonic? I decided to splurge on this when I realized my favorite La Roche Posay is not only out of stock in India but also in Paris! It also has alcohol so, I decided to hunt for something better. LRP has salicylic acid. This time I decided to go beyond and try Glycolic Acid for micro-exfoliation. Also, it is alcohol-free.

Sep 5, 2018 Skincare Haul

Someone agreed to get a few things from the USA when he was coming to India for his wedding. This post was supposed to be a glamorous post with products from iHerbs, Colourpop, and The Ordinary. I placed my order from all three. Unfortunately, there was some issue with the delivery, and the Colourpop and The Ordinary and those parcels reached him after he boarded his flight to Delhi.

Anyways, I have the iHerbs parcel with me and here is what I picked from them.

  • LifeFlo Rosehip Seed Oil: This is a magic potion and works exceptionally well with acne scars. It is something that I recommend all the time. Nishu converted me, and I never miss an opportunity to request others to try it. All the eight bottles (forgot to click one) are not for me. Already gifted four of them (Yes, those are empty packages with no oil inside 😄). One in on my nightstand and another is in my office bag. One is reserved for someone. How about a giveaway the eighth one? Comment and let me know.

French Skincare Haul (from Parapharmacie, Paris)

A haul of French skincare products from Paris.

Well, this was bound to happen because I switched to a French company this year and someone or other is always is always traveling. I just did not expect that it would happen this fast. I had just joined and there was somebody about to travel. I asked him if he would be able to pick a few skincare products for me. I assured him that these will be available in random pharmacy and he will not have to go anywhere special.
