Forest Essentials Lip Scrub – Cane Sugar Review

4

Hi everyone,

     I have never used commercially available lip scrubs in my life, I usually DIY using sugar, oil, honey and that too I do it very rarely may be once in 6 months if I remember to do it, or sometimes when my lips feel very dry or need some nourishment.  But the one thing I do often is, I apply lip balm in excess overnight and in the morning after brushing my teeth I brush my lips also using the same toothbrush that removes all dead cells revealing healthy moisturized smooth lips.  This is one I have been following many years and happy with it.  Lip scrubs never caught my attention as I thought I might never use it and it might be a waste.  But, when Forest Essentials launched the cane sugar lip scrub, I wanted to try it just like I wanted to try few other FE products.  The one lip scrub that I was actually eyeing was the bubblegum lip scrub from Lush as I love bubblegum fragrance but when I smelled it in Lush stores I did not actually like the fragrance or maybe it did not fit of what I thought would be the fragrance, not sure, I have to smell it once again to make sure.  But, coming to today’s review is the cane sugar lip scrub from Forest Essentials, let’s see how well it fared on me.

The Body Shop Vanilla Chai Products Review

Hi everyone,

     You might have seen this vanilla chai limited edition Christmas festive collection in my Germany haul here and I especially got it for the apple tin which you can see in my haul post.  I wanted either the red apple tin with frosted berries or the green apple tin with spiced apple but both of them were sold out.  The limited edition are still available in shops and online in very good discounts in the TBS of few countries, but not sure about India.

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish Review

2

Hi everyone,

     I remember a time when The Body Shop body polishes were all over the blogosphere and most of them were praising it.  I went and brought the strawberry body polish which was so famous from TBS, reviewed it here and liked it though for me body polishes feel like normal body wash with some beads in it and the good thing is it is milder to be used daily.  Today I am going to review the Satsuma Body Polish from The Body Shop which is a part of the satsuma gift box that I purchased almost a year back, I have posted a picture of it on Instagram which you can see here.

Why did I Buy The Body Shop Products from Germany

12

Hello everyone,

     Hope you all had a good start of the year and a very Happy New Year.  I was not sure what to post as the first post of 2017 but then I thought I would share The Body Shop products I purchased from Berlin, Germany where we went for few days during the Christmas vacation.  So, few of you might wonder that why should I bring them all the way from Germany while they are widely available in Finland.  The truth is TBS products are of the high price in Finland when compared to India and few other countries like Germany, I will give the prices of the products so you will have an idea and so some products are double the price in Finland compared to Germany, especially my all time favorite rainforest range.  The best country to buy TBS products in various offers like 40-50% off, buy 3 get 3 etc is the USA and I have ordered a list of products to my sister’s home during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales of 2016.  We will be meeting at the mid of this year in India and I will collect it from her (excited about the trip to home 🙂 though it is 6 months away).  Ok without further delay, here are the products that I purchased from the TBS store in Berlin.

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Restoring Hand Cream Review

2

Hi everyone,

     If you have been reading my blog, you would have noticed that I have already reviewed few hand creams. I started using hand creams a lot after moving to Turku due to the cold and dry weather here that makes the skin get dry and hand creams have become a necessity.  I also use body lotions as hand creams but reapplication has made me purchase hand creams so I can carry them and use them throughout the day.  Today, I will be reviewing the Garnier Intensive 7 Days Restoring Hand Cream which I picked up in London during last year Christmas visit.  I loved the Garnier body lotions which I have reviewed here and when I saw this in the shop, I got excited and purchased it as this one is not available in Finland.

Empties Post – 3

29

Hello everyone,

     So, this is the 3rd empties post and as I said early, I like to read other’s empties post and also love to write my own.  I usually stick to finish a product especially skin care and hair care products before using another one for the same purpose.  So, it would help me to formulate a final opinion about the products when I have finished using it and if you start watching, most of the products that I review also show up in my empties post.  And I also try not to waste products unless they are completely useless or does harm to my skin or hair.
