In my opinion Nykaa is doing a great job at getting us access to global brands and the amount of buzz the Korean Beauty Brands have created in the western beauty industry that its high time we also look east.
Innisfree is a Korean Brand that enterd the Indian Market sometime back, and I say about time we get acess to global brands. Korean skincare and makeup is world renowned for the use of unique ingredients and their claimed effectiveness. I had been wanting to try Korean stuff since a while so when Nykaa made it availaible online I though these need to be given a shot. I tried their Sheet Masks in Rose & Cucumber and the Jeju Volcanic Scoria from the Capsule Recipie Pack Collection.
I have always loved perfume, the bottles, its colour and the scent within always intrigued me. I also find the whole science behind it very interesting. Its amazing how each fragrance wears differently on different people. For this very reason I am almost always weary of giving and receiving perfumes as gifts. But I got this one as a gift from a close friend and its changing my opinion about receiving perfumes as a present.
To be honest I am not a mask person, I don’t have the time or inclination to mask at all! Mostly because I have a serious doubt about their effectiveness and nobody wants to answer the door with green goop on their faces! So selecting one then buying it and using it often to come up with a review, was beyond just tasking for me.
I recently tried the Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco – Intense Moisturising Treatment and I was impressed. I was almost running out of shampoo and conditioner so I went ahead and purchased the Shampoo and Conditioner from the same range. I had heard so much hoopla about this that I was compelled to check it out.
All of us have those days where lack of sleep and exhaustion causes a panic situation when we have overslept and are running beyond just late! By the grace of Murphy’s Laws, on this particular day your hair will decide to rebel. Dry shampoos are a boon on such days.
Lately I have been cultivating the habit of reading ingredient lists on products and getting more and more anxious everyday about their harmful chemical contents. Silicones, Sulphates, Parabens are common ingredients, just to name a few and all are highly notorious for their ill effects. A lot of people have been asking for natural and cruelty free recommendations so I was quite happy to come across Juicy Chemistry.
I was in the market for a new conditioner and seeing Ms.Super Consumer finishing product after product from the Organix (OGX) brand with an unwavering loyalty, I thought I should also try something from their inventory so I decided to go for the Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco – Intense Moisturising Treatment.
This word “Daiso” brings such immense happiness to me, perhaps because it helps fuel my endless consumerism! For those of you who are not aware, Daiso is a Japanese 100 Yen store (100 Yen = 60 INR approx), kind of like an american dollar store; with an endless variety of goods at very -very economical costs. My first Daiso Experience was at Singapore at the Vivocity Mall and I wanted to buy the whole store! I had purchased a mix of stationary, home goods and candy then. Its been a while since I have been using that stuff and I have realised in spite of being exceptionally economical they are of great quality. So a few months back my (very accommodating) friend Nidhi, author of Motoholic Works (check out her blog for some amazing motorcycle artwork) was travelling to India from Japan and asked me whether I wanted some stuff from Japan. Obviously I did and I gave her a gigantic – overwhelmingly long list of Diaso products and she got it all!

Urban Ladder is a popular Furniture E-store in India and they have been around for a while now. They have a very nicely done webpage, by that I mean very few dead links and well-organized content. The products look great too and I have spent a lot of time + data packs browsing through their wares adding stuff to wish list but never mustering enough courage to spend that much money on furniture without actually seeing it. But then around December 2016 they had the “Honestly Good Sale” where the prices were slashed up to 50% so I thought this opportunity was too good to be passed. (Obviously, my consumerism knows no bounds!) I wanted a table lamp so I decided to buy the “Hedwig Table Lamp”.
This is how it is presented on the website:
