This was released in Japanese markets in 2004, and has since become the #1 facial lotion there, with a bottle claimed to be purchased every four seconds! I had heard of this product a few years ago from the OG – Gothamista and since it was sitting in may “Want from Japan” list for a while. I am lucky enough to have friends who travel and are willing to indulge me so that’s how I got my hand on this cult favourite Hydrating Lotion.
I don’t think MAC Cosmetics has left any stone unturned in marketing this product! All Beauty Influencers and Makeup Artists alike can’t stop talking about it. You have to give it to MAC for some very potent advertising due to which I was (for the lack of a more appropriate word) coerced into buying this highlighting cream, ambitiously named – Strobe Cream!
Since forever I have been trying to find a lip balm that works for me! I am that special kind of unlucky who have chapped lips all year round and thus have tried lip balms from various brands and many-many home remedies. So far not much luck! But the quest continues and this time I tried the Lotus & Kokum Butter Lip Balm from SoulTree.
If you have been with me on my blogging journey you know how serious I am with Sunscreen. I have mentioned in multiple posts in the past that sunscreen is perhaps the only skincare product that every person should be using from a health standpoint. But very few people do and one of the reasons for that is they are unable to find a product that they like. I can’t blame them because most sunscreens are thick and goopy and makes one sweat, really nobody wants that! This weightless Japanese Sunscreen promises to do better, moreover the internet beauty community is obsessed with it. I wanted to find out why so I made a friend bring me this right from the source – a drugstore in Japan!
I tried the shower gel from The Body Shop’s British Rose Range in 2016 when they recently launched that range in India, and since have been in love with that fragrance. I loved it so much I went on to buy their Body Mist from the same range (twice) and couldn’t stop raving about it. Looking at me gushing about it my BFF gifted me this Body Yogurt thinking I will love it for sure! Read ahead to find out if I did…
If you are into Korean anything you must already know that BT21 are eight adorable characters created by Line Friends based on the members of popular Korean boy band. The BT21 characters are Tata from Planet BT, who crashes on Earth with Van, and meets Koya, RJ, Shooky, Mang, Chimmy and Cooky. BT21 has already collaborated with brands like Uniqlo and now with Innisfree. My best friend who is a resident of Singapore gifted me this and my can has Cookie – the pink rabbit with a attitude, on it 🙂
In design school we often did exercises where we interpreted something classic in a new or a different way. This version of the the Black Opium launched in 2014 is a Rock and Roll inspired interpretation of the original YSL Opium that came into being in the year 1977. This is often done by brands to continue to ride on the fame of a classic while capturing the audience of modern times.
Do you remember Blake Lively’s character Serena Van Der Woodsen from the hit series Gossip Girl? My 20 year old self was in awe of her, she had this effortless style & ohmygod that hair! It had that undone off-duty-model look that caught the sun when she walked through New York. For the longest time I couldn’t figure out how I could achieve that but then I met the Ouai Dry Texture Foam.
Ouai Haircare as a brands has a huge hype surrounding it! Considering it is created by celebrity stylist Jen Atkin famed for keeping up the manes of the Kardashians, which in itself guaranteed the brand its fair share of limelight! Everybody who knows anything about hair-care is talking about it so I had to give some of their products a shot! In this post I am reviewing the Ouai Volume Spray because this girl definitely needs more volume.
I have been trying various Innisfree products since they first launched in India. Their offerings have one thing in common great packaging and a beautiful scent. In terms of efficacy they haven’t impressed me yet! But I am hopeful about their new launches. Here I am talking about three products; Toner, Serum & Sleeping Pack from the Whitening Pore Range. Bear with me because I am squeezing in three reviews in one post so its bound to be long-ish.
