The Body Shop Haul and NOTD

This is my first post from home sweet home. The electricity department sucks out here. Imagine we had no electricity for like three days continuously! I am just happy the internet connection is not that bad. Last Saturday my family and me went to Siliguri which is about three hours from here and guess what Siliguri finally has The Body Shop store in Cosmos Mall. My happiness knew no bound and i shopped like crazy. The store had more products than the one in South City mall, Kolkata. Anyways, so here's what i bought.. :]

TADA!!!! The biiiig bag :]

Yummy goodies inside :]

Winter must have :]  Shea Shower Cream, Shea Lip Butter, Shea Body Butter and Shea Body Mist

Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

Vanilla Body Mist

My Dad had gifted me LOVE ETC.. SUN KISS limited edition edt in July and i have hardly used it so picked up this Body Puree from the same range to compliment my edt.

I have never used any Primer or base as such with my make-up so picked this Skin Primer Moisturise to give it a try.

Since i am a sucker for any baked make-up product i got this baked cheek color in the shade 01 Petal.

And then ofcourse i asked the SA for samples and he was kind enough to give me these samples..the newly launched Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil and Moisturise White Shiso Whitening Serum

That's it for my happy to be home haul hehe :] and now for NOTD

I'm wearing the new shade Turquoise Blue from Revlon. It is such a pretty shade of blue and the moment i saw it it reminded me of youtuber Jennim and the lovely nailpaint she had in one of her videos.

Hope you guys liked this post and do give me your feedback. Happy Puja's to all of you... muahhh :*

Scrumptious Hand Sanitizers

 Who doesn't like using hand sanitizers!! I for once and all can't do without it in my bag. Just the thought of germs creeping all over my hands makes me feel sickish! Any ways, in this write up i am going to to write about some hand sanitizers which smells good enough to eat.

  First are these two amazing Bath & Body Works Pocket Bac in Vanilla Bean Noel and Jolly Ginger Bread Cookie.

I am a devout fan of Bath & Body Works and i can do anything literally anything for it to open a flagship shop here in India but.. Sigh!!! Sadly. people like me have to rely on the limited products we get from some online stores. Coming back to these mini babies... just few weeks back i was in a.c market here in Kolkata and i spotted these in one of the shops. My heart skipped a beat and i was literally jumping with glee! The first thing i checked was if these were original ( cause i have seen some of these shops selling Mac products which are not Mac at all ). The shopkeeper was charging me an exorbitant amount for these even though i know it retails for just $1.50 in the States. In the end i payed him Rs120 for each even though i knew i was paying twice the actual amount but nevertheless i was happy.

Vanilla Bean Noel

 This one is so christmassy and cute. It is green in color with tiny blue granules. It smells of  vanilla bean, caramel and baked goodies. The smell is so winter and yummy. The smell stays for long in one's hand and you just feel like gnawing your own hands hahaha.. Initially when you take a whiff from the bottle all you get is the smell of alcohol like most sanitizers do but overall  the smell is delicious.

Jolly Gingerbread Cookie

This too is perfect for use in winter especially during the Christmas season. It has the color of ginger ale and also has small blue granules. Like the name suggests it smells of ginger cookie or a gingerbread man cookie. The smell of alcohol is not so prominent in this one.

Second i have these somewhat Indian dupe of  Pocket Bac and these are Zuci Instant Hand Sanitizers in Coconut Verbena and Tulsi basil.

 I got these little one's from New U stores in Forum, Elgin Road. I had gone there to pick up some hair ruberbands and makeup sponges, when i saw these tiny tots sitting in the cash counter. At first just looking at the bottle i thought it was a Pocket Bac but when i picked it up i realized it was just another sanitizer made to look like a Pocket Bac. I paid Rs.30 for each of these 30 ml bottle.

Coconut Verbena

The reason i picked this up is i love the smell of coconut. this like the Pocket Bac has tiny granules but purple in color. I can tell you the exact smell of this!! It smells just like coconut milk and lemon grass gravy being simmered for making prawn curry. Once my boyfriend made me this dish and this sanitizer smells exactly like this.It is refreshing and your hand feels and smell clean after using this.

Tulsi Basil

Although i do not like the smell of anything herbal that much, nevertheless i picked this one. This too has small granules and the color is green. This smells exactly like the tulsi green tea from Organic India that i drink.

Hence, these are four scrumptious smelling hand sanitizers which i really love. The only difference that i don't like between the Pocket Bac and the Zuci ones is the fact that the consistency  of the fluid is slightly thinner in the Zuci sanitizers which takes some time to dry after applying it in the hand. Other than that i love all these sanitizers.

I am leaving for my hometown tomorrow yipeeeeee!!!! and oh yes!! i have already packed these sanitizers for use during travel.
If any of you guys have come across other scrumptious smelling hand sanitizers, do leave a comment below.. and yes do follow my blog all you lovely people..xoxo

Favorite Six for Luscious Lips

Here are the top six lip products that i swear by for my chapped and dry lips. Hope you guys like it.

Spiced Vanilla lip balm from The Body Shop. 

This pretty lip balm comes in a cute tin box. It reminds me of Christmas cake. It smells of vanilla and cinnamon. The lip balm perfectly soothes and nourishes my chapped lips and i prefer using this at night before going to bed. The only thing i don't like about this is the fact that it makes my lips look kinda whitish colour because of the the tint it leaves behind. Price: Rs 340

Maybelline New York Baby Lips

The cutest and the yummiest thing ever!!! God knows how long I waited for it to launch here in India.. Now that it is here I can't stop pampering my lips with these babies. Till now i own these three i.e Mango Pie, Anti-oxidant Berry and Cherry Kiss. The first two are sheer with no tint and just leaves behind a gorgeous sheen in my lips. the smell is yummy and out of the world. Cherry kiss leaves a tinge of red tint on the lips and it makes the lip look super moist and kissable :]. The only thing i am unhappy about these products is that i don't like the packaging of the Baby Lips Color, i just wish it was more colourful and vibrant like the ones in abroad. But nevertheless i love these babies and will be getting Pink Lolita and Coral Flush soon. Price: Rs 125 for Care Range and Rs 150 for Color Range

Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick from The Body Shop

I picked this lip balm a few weeks back and instantly it has become one of my favourites. The smell and taste of this product is so yummy that i keep licking it off my lips :D. The moisturizing capacity of this lip balm is amazing and it makes my lips supple and soft. Price: Rs 245

Lipice Lipbalm in Blueberry

The first time i ever heard of this company was when i use to watch MTV Splitsvilla 5 and the company was one of the sponsors. Back then it didn't appeal to me much but when i saw loads of reviews about this product in other beauty blogs i had to get it!.  I love this lip balm for the fact that it does not leave behind a thick layer of gooey substance in my lips like most lip balms do. It may sound funny when i say this but you see Kolkata sucks for it's hot and humid weather and obviously i don't like having overly sticky substance in my lips on such days when i am sweating in excess. Hence, Lipice is perfect for such days and moreover this lipbalm contains Mentholatum and cools and soothes my lips. It also has a yummy blueberry smell. It contains SPF 15. Price: Rs 120

Born Lippy from The Body Shop

Currently i own two of these Born Lippy's. They are Satsuma Shimmer and Cool Mint. I don't know if TBS still manufactures the cool mint one in present times and if it is available in India. My mom got me this from Nepal. Coming to the products, i only love these lip balms for the overpowering smell and also for the shimmering tint it leaves in my lips. i apply this sometimes over matte lipsticks and most of the time i use it during days when i am extremely lazy to wear makeup. you know the kind of days when you just feel like wearing your glasses and a lip tint with your hair tied in high pony at the back. The only thing i don't like of this product is that i have to dig into the product and my fingers gets kind of sticky. Price : Rs 195

Rev Ayur Lip Sliders

I purchased these from www.urbantouch.com.The first thing that drew me to these lip balm were it's cute packaging and also the flavors, green apple and coconut. I am a sucker for anything that smells like coconut even though i don't like eating coconut ..wierd hahahaha. I can't say i am the biggest fan of these lip balm but still it is good enough for the price i got it in. The only thing that bothers me much about this lip balm is on the cover it states that it is a tinted lip balm but when i wear it i get no tint on my lips! Price: Rs 80 got it for Rs 72

Phew!!! i am tired now writing so much :p i am gonna get back to cleaning my apartment since i will be leaving for home sweet home on 13th of october. So much to do so little time. Hope you guys enjoyed reading this muahhhhh xoxo
