Qtrove haul.


Time has proved a lot of stereotypes wrong :

1. Can you shop online?
2. People delivering products home – will it be safe?
3. What if you don’t like the products?

But one thing time can’t erase – the beauty of handmade products. Handmade products have their own value and charm. Don’t we all have a neighbour/friend who is exceptionally good at making handmade stuff, that is cute, and wants to sell it, but is not able to find a proper way to do so. Qtrove is a one-stop destination for all these handmade sellers. This in turn means you have a wide choice between organic and natural products, that are chemical free. (food for the skin and food for the body! :P)

They have a wide range of products from food, beauty products, home decor, accessories and a lot more. I recently had a shopping haul at Qtrove and I wanted to pen my experience.

3. Ardhana peppermint lip balm – This is a chemical free lip balm, that is extremely moisturizing. Only drawback being it has a glass container which is not very travel friendly. (4.5/5) You can get this product here.

Korean skincare?


Hey,

So how often, while looking at Korean people have you wondered how flawless their skin is? What do they use to get that kind of skin? In my quest to find the answers to this, I fortunately stumbled upon skin18. And it was my one stop destination.

I recently got a face mask from their site, and here is my honest review about it.

The sheet mask 😀

I was really really excited to try it out as soon as I received it, but waited for a good occasion to do so. As instructed, I washed my face with a gentle cleanser, and used a toner, after which I applied the sheet mask on my face. It was convenient to use. After a good 30 minutes, I removed the sheet and washed my face.I also massaged my face, to complete the good pampering session. I could feel a real cooling sensation after using the mask.

Pros :

  • Easy to use
  • Clear instructions given
  • Gave a good cooling sensation
  • A good skin pampering session at home
  • Mask covers even face shape ( and is quite big)
  • Smell is mild
  • Very pocket friendly ( they also have a lot of crazy discounts, so very comfortable)

Cons : Nothing I can think of! 🙂

Verdict : A good 4/5. Will definitely purchase it again! Would love to try other variants as well.

Let me know, what you think of the post! 😀 Here is a direct link to this face sheet mask.

Continuing the Natural Way!


Hey peeps,

Taking the decision of pampering your skin with organic and natural stuff, requires passion, commitment and determination to not turn back into those tempting products that give you results overnight. Natural products take their time in giving results, but once they do, you know that your skin is breathing better and is shining inside out. In the journey of finding good natural products, I have come across a lot of brands – one of which is Fuschia by Vkare. They make GMP certified Natural handmade skincare products which are SLS, phthalate, paraben free and Cruelty free. What more do you need from natural products? 🙂

I have tried and tested three of their products over a few months and here is my honest review about them :
Their packaging looks lovely, and I can’t help posting a picture of their packaging.

  1. Green tea face and body scrub : At the very outset, it smells heavenly! It is a very mild everyday scrub, which is very gentle on the skin. If you expect a rough scrub to exfoliate like once a week, then this is not your pick. Since it is mild (and smells too good to not use often), I include it in my CTM routine.

    Le scrub! 🙂

    b612_20161107_004027

    It’s texture – reflects the green tea ingredient!

  2. Aloe-orange Gel : I’ve always awed at the different ways you can use the Aloe gel. I have an Aloe vera plant back at home, which I really miss right now, since I’m in a different city. This Aloe gel came really handy now. It is very light, and blends with the skin easily (like a serum) and does not make the skin oily. I use it as a night gel, and then apply a moisturizer on it to lock the gel into the face for a longer time.

    The gel packaging..

    The texture of the gel 🙂

  3. Soaps : These tiny soaps are a travel friendly option for any person, and come in different colors. My nephew stole one from me looking at how cute it was, and my sister keeps telling me that he loves his bath now a days! 😀

They have a lot more amazing products in store, some of which I would love to try in the coming days! You guys should take a look at their products in their home page and then decide the best ones for you! Do comment on what you feel about them.

Lass Naturals


Hey guys,

Once you start using natural products, you start liking the way your skin reacts to it, and there’s finally no looking back to the chemical junk. So here I am, on my path of finding and reviewing natural products. I recently got a few products from lass naturals, which is SLS and paraben free and this is my personal opinion about the products. At the very outset the products are pocket friendly.

Lass lip balm : I swear by this, multiple times a day. I love the ingredient list and love the way it keeps my otherwise chapped lips, soft.

Lass body butter : I use this mainly for my feet, and I see a tremendous improvement in my feet since then. I like the mild citrus smell and fact that it gets absorbed by the skin quickly.

Lass shampoo : This shampoo claims to reduce hair fall. I’ve used it twice a week for two weeks, and I already seem to notice a chance. The only off side of it is that, a large quantity is to be used for all the oil to disappear, which I think is a bi product of it being natural.

Overall, lass has been an amazing brand for me, and I’m hoping to hear from you about the natural brands you’ve used so far 🙂

What’s that smell?


Hey guys,

It’s summer in most parts of India, and we all face a common problem – to smell good. Now, who doesn’t like to portray themselves as the guy/girl with a good fragrance? Everybody loves that attention. Spending thirty seconds of your morning time on spraying a perfume, for work, is one thing. But, summer calls for a handy pocket perfume, for the ‘just in case’ moments. And that’s were Neesh Perfumes came into play.

I was browsing for some good ‘pocket-friendly’ pocket perfumes (I haven’t started earning yet 😛 ) and I found this Indian attar (perfume) brand which claims to use natural and fresh ingredients. I found it’s fragrance range very unique and got to try two of the fragrances :

  1. Attar-E-Ishq : This one is my current travel-friendly favorite. It has a mild fragrance of vanilla with a little of nutmeg, bakhoor and cedarwood. The mild fragrance is what drew me towards it and if you are looking for some strong ones, you can try the other one.
  2. Moha-Beau-T : This one has a strong scent, but I love the way French rose and saffron have been mixed to give this a perfect Indo-Western touch.
    B612_20160706_144616.jpg

The brand claims that these last for 12 hours, I can definitely assure a 10 hour “awesome you”. Not to forget the cute packaging, which can fit in your slings, or even your pockets. Coming to the cost, it costs 340 bucks for a 20 ml pack, which comes to less than 1 rupee per spray. (Each pack contains nearly 400 sprays 😉 )

You can know more about the other variants and purchase your favorites in the official website. These products are also available in the leading online websites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal and ebay.

So Keep Calm and Smell Well.

Till then,
