India's Watsons/Boots? ~ New U Store + Haul

Image: www.indiaretailing.com

I'm very happy to see a health and beauty store, called New U (by Dabur) in Delhi and Gurgaon. I went with my friends from back home recently, and they went crazy at the store. The store offer most things-from make-up to skincare. I especially like the beauty tools and accessories, like bath stuff, false eyelashes, vanity bags and mani-pedi equipments.

Make-up brands include Maybelline, Loreal, Chambor etc
They also sell fragrances (Nina Ricci, Carolina Herrera, etc)

I've only been to the ones in Ambience Mall and Promenade Mall, but I think there are a lot of stores in other cities as well.

Size-wise, the stores are not as big as Watsons and Boots, but I guess starting small is the way to go for any retail chain in this uncertain economy.

I just bought a few things because I'm trying very hard not to buy unnecessary stuff and I can always go back for more *wink wink*
There were these cute nail polish removers in pink, green and purple bottles which I really liked. Forgot the name of the brand. 

Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner ~Black (Rs.375)
Can't help falling in love with this! ;)


Sen Chocolate & Milk Hand and Body Lotion (Rs.125)
This does smell like dark chocolate. It's moisturizing without leaving my skin feeling greasy
There are other products from this brand from Turkey that I'd love to try out like Strawberry & Milk Hand & Body Lotion. Check out their website here if you want to know more.


QVS Natural Lashes (Rs.250) & Glamour Lashes (Rs.220)
I actually got the Glamour Lashes last December and tried wearing them on New Year's eve but they just didn't seem to stick to my eyes. I hope I have better luck with the Natural ones.


Garnier Gentle Soothing Face Wash With Orange Fruit Extract (Rs.40)
Loving this face wash! Doesn't dry out my skin and leaves it feeling very very smooth. I recommend it 100%

Wait. That's it?! I must be getting really good at controlling my impulses =D


P.S~ Sorry for the lack of posts. Been really busy with life. Now I'm back for good :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
