Juicy Chemistry Organic BLACK RICE & Bulgarian Lavender Mask/Cleanser Review



The one thing that I am programmed to believe since childhood that face masks are the key to good skin. I am still following this rule because they indeed are. And so much fun too! So, when I spot a 100% natural origin face mask with interesting ingredients, I cannot say no.

Juicy Chemistry NEEM Butter, Pumpkin & Vitamin E- SCALP REPAIR Hair Mask (Certified Organic)

Neem Butter, Pumpkin & Vitamin E- Scalp Repair Hair Mask Certified Organic Review
Neem Butter, Pumpkin & Vitamin E- Scalp Repair Hair Mask Certified Organic Review

I rarely experiment when it comes to hair. The primary reason is that the ingredients are the king for me in any product. I do in-depth research before buying anything. (I do some impulsive shopping as well, but after all these years, it is dwindled down). Most hair care products are either full of chemicals, or I do not trust if the brand actually is telling the truth in their ingredients list. This one looked promising in the ingredients department, but I had never tried Juicy Chemistry before. A lot of you have recommended this brand so, I decided to go ahead.

What can be wrong with Coconut butter, Neem butter, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Argan Oil, and Rosemary?

The Body Shop SATSUMA Jumbo Shower Gel

The Body Shop SATSUMA Jumbo Shower Gel Review
The Body Shop Satsuma Jumbo Shower Gel Review

Orange is not an exotic fruit for India. You find several variants. Now, we also have tangerine, clementine, and kinnow available easily. But, when it comes to bath products, it becomes a rare sight. While citrusy lemony scents are common, orangey scents are not. I have tried high and low to get a refreshing zesty orange bath product but I have always failed. I always end up going back to The Body Shop Satsuma. 

Forest Essentials - My go-to brand for fragrance also has a range for Coorg Mandarin but no shower gel or even soap in that range. Another bath product giant - Bath and Body Works have Orange Ginger (Energy) but no Orange Citrus range.

To finish all the drama, I decided to get the big jumbo bottle. Trust me, they need good thought put in before purchase because they can last more than a year as you need very little of this. 

The jumbo shower bottle option is also available for olive and moringa (my other favorite from TBS permanent line)

Forest Essentials HASAYAN Rose Facial Tonic Mist Review


Forest Essentials HASAYAN Rose Facial Tonic Mist Review


A part of my mind says - Stop buying rose water. You have enough.

Another part says - New! New! New! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Guess which part wins. Every. Single. Time. 🙊🙈


This might be a shocker but I do not like the regular line of rosewater by Forest Essentials (Rosa Damascene). I find the fragrance of that one too strong for use. But, the SA told me that Hasayan Roses are the pink Desi Gulab (Rosa Rubiginosa) and have a milder fragrance. How could I say no?

Kama Ayurveda X Manish Arora - Love is Love - Rose Water (Limited Edition)

Kama Ayurveda X Manish Arora - Love is Love - Rose Water (Limited Edition)


"I will not buy new products because of pretty packaging."

"I will not buy new products because of pretty packaging."

"I will not buy new products because of pretty packaging."

"I will not buy new products because of pretty packaging."

"I will not buy new products because of pre…."

Instagram Notification - Kama Ayurveda just posted - Limited edition Love is Love box designed by Manish Arora.

Oh so pretty! But, wait…₹1,850.00 for 200ml rose water (Regular price ₹ 1050), and a randomly sent broach? No way. No freaking way I am going to buy this.

Within 5 days I discovered that the individual bottles are also available. No points for guessing that I made a beeline to the Kama Store and picked one for myself.

Juicy Chemistry ROSEHIP Oil (Cold Pressed Organic)

Juicy Chemistry ROSEHIP Oil (Cold Pressed Organic) Review
Juicy Chemistry ROSEHIP Oil (Cold Pressed Organic) Review


After a lot of thought and requests from you, I decided to try a rosehip oil that is available in India. In case you are not aware then here are some details. Rosehip seed oil is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. It is absorbed quickly by the skin. Also, praised a lot for its anti-aging and blemish/scar reduction property. I have seen my dark spots facing when I use LifeFlo Rosehip Oil and swear by the benefits. LifeFlow rosehip oil is less than Rs 400 a bottle but only available via iherb which is notorious for attracting heavy custom charges 👎

So, I got the one from Juicy Chemistry. I wanted to try a lot of things from Juicy Chemistry and added them to the cart as well. Want to see the haul post?

The Body Shop Japanese CHERRY BLOSSOM STRAWBERRY Kiss Perfume EDT Review

Happy Valentine's Day to all those celebrating.💟 I am home now in my jammies trying to finish my birthday cake as I write this. No cheesy romantic posts but this post have strawberries, perfume and a kiss in the name. So, I think that will do? No?😀

The strawberry range from The Body Shop is very famous. They do have Japanese Cherry Blossom as well as part of the Voyage collection. (Talking about voyage collection, I like their English Dawn Gardenia.) Recently, they created this line with strawberry and cherry blossom to give a mix of floral with fruity. The range has shower gel, body butter, and this EDT.

Being seasonal is always the best. 😊 No matter how much I love vanilla or shea, I cannot use them all year long. With ripe red strawberries in the market, I decided to pull out the strawberry products in my stash. 

Scent: The sweet and tart fragrance of fresh strawberries is alluring. This the most fruity and most popular scent by The Body Shop. I do not think any other brand does strawberry as good as The Body Shop. This was my first ever product from The Body Shop back in 2010 I believe and when I used it my hubby (then Mr. Boy), who is practically blind to all these things said - "Something fruity. I like it." And that ignited my craziness for The Body Shop which is still strong though Bath and Body Works is now in India.

Price: Rs 325 for the shower gel and Rs 545 for the gel lotion.

Benefit Benetint and Gogotint (for Indian Skin)



For years, I wanted to try the cult favorite Benefit Benetint. I have heard so much about it that I had to give it a try when I discovered that they are now available in mini sizes as well. In fact, a lot of Benefit products are now available in minis and I am eyeing the blushes as well but I know it too well that I rarely use powder blushes. :P So, before splurging on the blushes, I wanted to go for the one product that Benefit cosmetics is popular for - Bene Tint.

The Ordinary Haul

The Ordinary Haul

Let's start the month of love and my birthday month with a happy haul post. Shall we?

In case you are not aware, The Ordinary is a skincare brand selling chemical formulations in an affordable price range. The parent brand is Deciem. The Ordinary is available on several websites and even sold by Instagram sellers but I got mine directly from the parent website.

All the Ordinary products are free of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, animal oils, coal tar dyes, formaldehyde, mercury, oxybenzone. Their products are not tested on animals. So, not sold in mainland China.

I wanted to buy more but most of the things in my wish-list were out of stock. So, only these made to my home.

Skincare Routine AM & PM with Natural Products



Happy New Year

Let’s start the new year with one of the most requested post – Skincare Routine. 

My skincare routine is very simple and aims at basics. It is not perfect and may or may not be suitable for you. But, I will share why I use any of the product and what are the alternatives that I enjoy.

If you have troubled skin then I might not be the best person to help you out here and I will urge you to visit a doctor. Last year I had forehead acne which I later found out was because of stress. By the way, the reason of my stress was bad skin. So, here I am leaving you to do the math :D
