Bourjois So Delicate Lip Cream





I'm so obsessed with Bourjois stuff these days. Boy! do they know how to hook a girl with their packaging! And I'm a sucker for anything that comes in a cute and innovative package. I strongly believe that it's all about the presentation. Even with perfumes, I buy for the bottles not the smell =)
So delicate comes in 6 beautiful shades and I'm sure you'll find at least one shade that you'll love. They're velvet (read: matte) finishes but don't dry out the lips because they're made with coconut oil. Although, I still prefer to apply lip balm or gloss when my lips feel too matte-y. They're long lasting too, and if you need to re-apply, it's better to rub it all off first to prevent flaking. I noticed that my lips feel really soft after it wears off, it's as if I've used a good exfoliator.

Bourjois is available in Kunchal's and some Lifestyle stores in Delhi and Noida.
Priced at Rs. 575.



Here's my haul:

Pond's Age Miracle Dual Eye-Therapie

I'm very impressed with Pond's these days. They've totally revamped their image by launching so many different products for every skincare need. Their pinks and reds packaging are oh-so-very-attractive too and comparable to some high-end brands in the market. I just want to try them all!
I figured I needed to start using eye creams, since the years are passing by real quick  *sob* so I bought myself the Pond's AMDET and I'm absolutely in love with it! It's exactly the type of eye cream I had in mind. They say that once you start putting on eye creams, you'll never be able to live without them again. In my case, so true. I get up in the middle of the night to put it on in case i forgot, and I'm already thinking about which one to try out next.


The cute dual pot is shaped like the Chinese Yin & Yang symbol and made with collagen and chamomile extract
White cream ---> Brightens up and smoothens the undereye area, reduces puffiness, easily absorbed. When I've scooped out more than I need for my eyes, I use the extra it on other dark spots on my face, mainly freckles.


Pink cream ---> I just LOVE how silky this feels, making me wish I had a big pot of it so I can use it on my whole body =). It helps reduce crow's feet and wrinkles, eyeshadow goes on much more smoothly with this as a base. Every now and then, I like to apply it lightly on other areas of my face like my laugh lines, frown lines and even my lips.


I just wish this product came with a small plastic spatula because I don't like to dip my finger in it everytime. I use plastic toothpicks for that at the moment.


It costs Rs.495. Some might say it's a little steep for an eye cream, but I think you totally get your money's worth considering it'll last you a long time as you just need a very small amount of the product everyday.

Vaseline Healthy White Body Lotion Review



First of all, let me just tell you that I'm on my second bottle of this wonderful lotion.
Its key ingredients are : Triple sunscreens, Vitamin B3 and Yogurt Serum.
It comes with a cute shade-o-meter, so that you can compare your body skin tone to your face before and after you use the lotion.

I just *love* the smell of this lotion, which is why I'm on my second bottle =). I could smell it all day!
Also, my skin tans easily, so I need as much sunscreen as I can put on. The texture is very light and just sinks into the skin . It doesn't feel greasy at all, which is great for summer especially Delhi's. If you have really dry skin then this won't be moisturizing enough, but it's still worth a try (You can layer it over another lotion for dry skin.)


It's milky white in color with no highlighting particles and doesn't leave a whitish cast on your skin, unlike some whitening products out there.

It is very popular among the girls in Thailand and I'm guessing it is in Delhi too, because it was out of stock in three or four shops when I was buying my second one. The one in the pic is 300ml which is Rs. 139. It also comes in smaller sizes, even a 40ml one for only Rs. 25, which you can fit in your handbag.
This is definitely going to be one of the things I'm going to keep buying again and again...
