My journey with Inveda Moroccan Argan oil cleansing gel started when I first received a free sample kit from Smytten with this gel. The label on the gel’s bottle says “Oh my goodness” right on the top and yes, that’s exactly how I felt the first time I used it. My initial reluctance changed into delight with the refreshing fragrance.

But before I talk about the gel let’s get to know a little about the manufacturer that is Inveda. As per the company their USP is infusing the age old wisdom from the Vedas with the therapeutic and regenerative qualities intrinsic in natural extracts. They definitely have got that right! Inveda is an Indian company trying to promote Ayurveda in India and on international platform. So, all you beauties out over there who wish to contribute a little to the Indian economy this is your chance to do that.

Now let’s talk about the gel. The first and foremost thing that you will notice about it is the fragrance which is very refreshing and long lasting. The gel can be used for all skin types and will leave you feeling fresh as a daisy through the day. This baby comes with cleansing beads which exfoliate your skin leaving it soft, supple and glowing. It is gentle on the skin and does not leave it dry.  It contains Moroccan Argan oil which hydrates and moisturizes skin. Its high vitamin -E content gives the skin a natural boost. The high linoleic acid contents of the oil helps in reducing inflammation caused by acne.  The gel is also a toner so, no need to buy one to complete your skincare regime. Not only that, it comes blended with anti-oxidants which go a long way in keeping the skin looking young and clear. The difference is visible with even one usage and I have obviously not stopped at that! My husband loves it too (It’s Unisex!!!!) and this is one product which we both agree is of great quality and price as well. Infect we are both fans of Inveda products and I will give you all an update on the other products that I use some other time for sure

Pack Up !! Its Travel Time !!

Travelling can make many people nervous because of the packing hassles. It could be your first important trip or maybe you have been a globetrotter; who wouldn’t welcome a comprehensive travel checklist? Especially if you keep forgetting something or the other, then a checklist of travel essentials will come very handy.
First select your main bag or luggage.
The main thing is to pick a luggage, which is lightweight and not very huge to carry. Depending upon your requirements, decide out of a rolling luggage, a wheeled backpack, a duffel bag, a backpack or a shoulder bag or carry-on luggage. This depends upon the number of days and type of travel. A backpack would suit if it’s an informal short vacation; but you might need a rolling luggage if you are going for a conference and need to pack up formal shirts and blazers.  If you are travelling with kids, that’s another story. I will write about that in another article.

Secondly, follow a packing list.
The basic stuff
• Select lightweight clothes as per the weather
• While deciding the T-shirts, tops, jeans, pants etc, research about the culture of the country or city you are visiting and carry clothes accordingly
• Accessories like belts, socks, jacket
• Comfortable shoes
• Sleepwear
• Undergarments
• Sunglasses and if you wear other glasses or contact lenses
• Jewelry and watches
• If you are visiting a warm place or a beach, do carry scarf, stole or bandana
• Swimsuit or swimming trunks
• Cell phone with its earplugs and charger
• Travel pillow and eye mask
• Electric adapters and converter

The Toiletry Bag Basics
• Toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash
• Hair brush/comb
• Deodorant or perfume
• Shampoo and conditioner/ other hair care if any
• Sunscreen with SPF
• Face/body lotion
• Makeup kit (for all ladies ;))
• Face wash, cleanser and cotton swabs
• Personal hygiene items
• Feminine hygiene items
• Personal mini mirror
• Shaving kit and razors
• Facial tissues
• Scissors and nail clippers

Health Kit

• First aid kit
• Personal prescriptions (in case you are under any medication)
• Pain and fever medicines
• Thermometer
• Cold medicines
• Diarrhea medicines
• Allergy medicines
• Any basic antiseptic ointment
• Multivitamins
• Motion sickness pills

Don’t forget your personal items kit
Some things to keep in your carry-on kit or bag are:
• Mobile charger
• Laptop, iPad, and charger(s)
• Headphones
• Camera, memory card, and its chargers
• Books and magazines
• Water bottle
• Travel guides, maps, etc.

Important Travel Documents, Credit Cards and Cash

Now let’s see the International travel checklist:
• Valid Passport and visa(s)
• Personal ID like PAN card, Aadhar card etc or according to the country you are from.
• Credit cards – Make sure your credit card is up to date for use in foreign country. You should call your credit card company and make sure its safe to use in foreign country. I would recommend not to keep much cash while travelling.
• Health insurance document(s)
• Travel insurance document(s)
• Reservations or itineraries print outs or copies on your phone/email
• Hotel contact information
• Transportation tickets
• Any emergency contacts or important addresses you might need

Besides this list of things, pack up some excitement to travel and be positive that you are going to create some wonderful memories.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Featured Image

Hey Beauties,

It’s been a long time since I added anything new on my blog. My apologies for that. I was busy settling down in a new country… …my dream country Australia. I love staying here. Sydney is one of the best cities to live. I will share my experience later about shifting from one country to another country.

Here today I am going to review Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. One of the most famous mascara in the world now a days. I bought this few months ago and I am absolutely loving this. This is the most recent mascara that I have tried, and I stop using any other mascara since then. It’s been 5 months now I am wearing Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Mascara Open Packaging

As per my experience I used this for many occasions and it always win my heart. Most of the time I wear this mascara for shopping. I regularly go for groceries shopping and I don’t like wearing any makeup while such shopping as well as I don’t like going out without a little bit of touch up on my face. For touch up I apply my moisturiser, sunscreen on my face and the one and only Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. If you want light lashes then just apply one coat and you are ready to go for your daily routine. If you are going for a party or for any special occasion, then you can use 2-3 coats for heavy lashes.

It’s too hot in Sydney now a day so I avoid wearing makeup in hot summer days because of my oily skin. So, I apply my moisturiser, sunscreen and my mascara. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is so light and gives volume, length as well as a nice curl to the lashes. I feel after applying Too Faces Mascara my lashes look bigger and pretty.

Also, here in this article I would like to mention that from now on wards I will be reviewing vegan cosmetics only. I have chosen my lifestyle now and I’m loving this. Being an Indian vegetarian, I always felt, I should use cosmetics those are cruelty free. Good news is, there are many brands who launched vegan cosmetics.

Coming back to my review on Too Faced Mascara. I normally apply single coat before going out and it stays same at the end of the day. No smudging no blackout around my eyes. Even sometimes if I rub my eyes accidentally, still this mascara doesn’t smudge around my eyes. (This is based on 5-6 hours of applying Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara)

As far as packaging concern I love the packaging. I bought the smaller pack from Mecca Maxima here in Sydney. You can carry this while travelling as well because of its small size. This is incredible mascara I have ever used. Go for this and try this on. You are going to love this beauty. I must say, this is surely something better than sex. Ha ha ha!!!

Forest Essentials Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut

Forest Essential Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut

Hi Beauties,

Today I am reviewing Forest Essentials Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut Scrub. This is the first product I bought from Forest Essentials and I am loving it. I have oily skin and Forest Essentials Kashmiri Walnut scrub works very well for oily skin.

First, let’s see what Forest Essentials claims about the Kashmiri Walnut scrub.

“An exfoliating scrub with finely milled Walnuts in a pure Aloe Vera and vitamin A and E packed gel base. While the Aloe Vera and Vitamins stimulate cell regeneration, the oil-rich Walnut has a deep cleansing action, which brightens the complexion by gently removing dead cells and impurities.”

Forest Essential Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut

Forest Essential Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut

Exfoliation is must for oily skin and this is one of the best scrub I have choose ever. My skin loves this Kashmiri Walnut scrub. Forest Essentials Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut, has Aloe vera and vitamin A & Vitamin E gel, that works wonders on oily skin.

I am using this product from last 5 years and this will keep remain in my top essential list. This is always on my shelf.

I love this scrub because it removes tanning, impurities, dust and dirt that cause damage to your skin after going into sun, pollution in the air. My skin feels fresh and healthy every week when I use this scrub. Kashmiri walnut scrub tightens the skin as well.

Once you scrub this on your skin you feel the texture as well as its smoothness. Scrub slowly and gently on your skin and then wash off with warm water. The minute you wash your face, you can see the smooth and clean skin. Most importantly you skin glows. I tried many scrubs but this one is my favourite. Every time I use this I feel my skin more smoother and softer ever. Most of the scrubs leave skin dry, but this walnut gel scrub gives you your desire skin that you want, no dryness at all. You will get instant results after using this scrub.

Forest Essential Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut Description

Forest Essential Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut Description

I scrub my skin once in a week or sometimes twice a week. But if you have oily and sensitive skin like me use this once a week only. I use twice a week sometimes when I feel my skin needs it. It depends on the skin conditions you have. Try this once and then see if it works for you or not.

I always recommend getting a sample first. When ever you go for skincare shopping ask for samples. Every big brand gives you samples for their products. I love forest essential sample packaging, they always give me samples in small tiny jars. I love those small jars, they are so cute. I always keep them for my travel kit. Anyways come back to the samples again, when you ask for samples tell them about your skin conditions and ask them to give you a sample, so you can try the product for few days and then decide to buy a bigger pack. Few samples last 2-3 days and few for a week sometimes. I always do that because I feel before investing so much money into a product, I should give it a try. Of course, the price of the product matters to me. All these luxury brands have very expensive products and I always think twice before buying such expensive products. But trust me these products will do justice to you skin.

So, girls go ahead and try Forest Essentials Revitalising Gel Scrub Kashmiri Walnut Scrub. Your skin going to love this one. But of course, try sample first then go for it.

Shimla – The Queen of Hills

Shimla Queen of Hills

I know, this is coming a bit late but I would like to share my Shimla trip experience with you all. Shimla has been the summer capital since the British era. I saw Shimla from that angle during my visit.

I am a North Indian and from city near the footsteps of Himalayas. I have visited Shimla several times before. But this visit was very special for me coz I was travelling with my husband this time. This was his first visit to Shimla of course.

Ready for Journey to Shimla queen of hills

Ready for the Journey to Shimla – Queen of Hills

There are three possible ways to reach Shimla, via rail, car and by bus. We wanted to enjoy the scenery of the Himalayan hills so we opted for Kalka-Shimla Heritage rail route. We choose this option to see the beauty of Himalayas, the stunning sight scenes, freshness, and the greenery. The train, Himalayan queen, took 5-6 hrs to reach Shimla. The journey itself made our trip worth. One of the best experiences I recommend for everyone at least once. I just love travelling by train to Shimla. The beauty of those small railway stations and sceneries of Himalayan hills was just breath taking.

We visited Shimla in the month of October. Weather was very cold and pleasant as it was the middle of the October month.  We had planned our trip three months prior in July and booked our tickets online for both hotel stay and Shimla-Kalka Heritage rail route accordingly. We stayed there in Shingar Hotel. It is a budget hotel located on The Mall Road and very near to The Ridge, so we didn’t climb much to reach The Ridge. In all, this hotel was a decent choice.

Shimla from The Ridge

Talking more about the hotel, Shingar Hotel is a budget hotel hence it suits almost everyone’s pocket. It is a multi-storey hotel with around 7-8 floors. If you want a good city view then ask them for room on the higher floors. They have a small restaurant inside, where they provide continental and Indian food. My toddler was travelling with us so I preferred eating in hotel only. They provided good varieties of Indian food ranging from north Indian Punjabi food to South Indian Idli, Dosa. I liked the food there and even stay was nice.

View from our room

Talking about the site seeing, there are many places to visit on The Mall road itself. The Mall Road is the most visited place in Shimla. It’s famous for all kind of shopping. You will find cosy hand made garments like sweaters, socks (yes, handmade woollen socks), gloves, caps, shawls and many more handmade woollen items. When I was in North I always loved to wore handmade woollen socks at home in winters. Now days these items comes in many fancy designs. These are must have items for the people who stays on cold locations. I love these tiny things.

Lakkar (wooden) bazaar is another famous place located near ‘The Ridge’. It is one of the oldest places in Shimla. It is popular for its wooden crafts and souvenirs. There were so many beautiful souvenirs and I wanted to buy at least one sample of each for myself and relatives.

What should I say more about this place? Enjoy all the pictures of queen of hills below.

Popular places to visit in and near Shimla are listed below:

The Mall Road

The Ridge

Jakhu Mandir(Temple)

Lakkar Bazaar

Christ Church on the ridge

Kufri

Kufri minni zoo

The Green Valley

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sunscreen

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sheer Tint

Hey beauties,

Today i’m going to talk about Clinique’s Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 sunscreen. I am a big fan of Clinique products. Clinique products are life saving for girls who have sensitive skin. I love their products.

Now comes to Even better dark spot, this sunscreen is very light weight and oil free.  The company claims that it helps prevent the UVA/UVB damage that triggers the dark spot on skin. Even better dark spot defence SPF 45 is 100% non-chemical sunscreen and absolutely oil free (company claims).

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sunscreen

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sunscreen

The sunscreen absorbs quickly in skin after application. I have never felt any greasiness and stickiness on my face after applying this. This is very good and must buy product for people who have sensitive and oily skin. But actually this suits all skin types. I love using this sunscreen only because of its 3 way use, firstly it’s a sunscreen, secondly it can be used as moisturiser also, and  third you can use this as a makeup base too. According to me its best cream to use as a makeup base.  I always apply this cream as a base before applying my makeup.  Sometimes i blend this sunscreen with my foundation.

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sunscreen

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Defence SPF 45 Sunscreen

If you are working and don’t want to do make-up daily, in that case you must apply this sunscreen before going out. I am using Sheer Tint shade and it never ever look like a foundation application on skin. But at the same time it gives a glow and instant brightness on skin within few minutes after application because it covers the small spots on the face.

Celebration at Novotel Hotel Pune !!!

Early morning view from the hotel room

Harry planned a surprise for me. On my birthday we stayed in Novotel Pune for celebrations, also on the same day i was participating in an event in the hotel. So i had double celebrations on that day.

Novotel is a luxury business hotel. I entered the hotel and headed to reception. I asked about my room booking, i must say the staff was very good at their service because it took hardly few minutes to complete all the formalities and they handed over me my key card for my room.

Our room was located at the 8th floor. Room interiors were modern and luxurious and the theme was all in off-white and beige colour combination.

Early morning city view from my window

It was very quiet, no disturbance of road traffic at all in our room. More over my 3yrs old daughter enjoyed there.

We had our special dinner on that day in their The Square Restaurant. We opt for the buffet. In buffet they had north Indian, south Indian as well as continental dishes available. Harry and I, we both are Indian food lovers. So we tried their north and south Indian food dishes. The north Indian dishes were cooked with a twist and taste was different. I liked that twist in their north Indian food. They had all varieties available in their vegetarian and non vegetarian food. Food was really good. Whenever we plan to eat out, we are more concerned about our daughter’s food. My daughter enjoyed her food too, that was big relief for us.

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream

Hey beauties,

Today i am going to talk about The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream. These small tubes of The Body Shop hand cream comes in various fragrances and they are really good.  I love using hand creams. You can always find a small tube of hand cream in my bag. I always remember to use hand cream before going to bed as well as going out daily.

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream

Let’s discuss first about what company claims about this product.

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream with cold pressed seed oil from handpicked moringa pods.

Non greasy moisture.

Wonderfully light gel-cream formula.

Absorbs instantly.

My experience with this hand cream is really good. As you read about the company description of this product is very true. I love this hand cream. Once you starts applying this cream on your hands, you will feel absolutely soft texture. This is completely non greasy, soft and smooth on hands. I did not feel any stickiness on my hands after applying this. It is very light after application. I always apply this cream once i step out of my place.

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream – Swatch

I really like the soft fragrance of Moringa on my hands. I feel this fragrance bit relaxing. My hands are more soft and smooth after using The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream. Here i would like to mention if someone don’t like flowery fragrances or someone is suffering from migraine this is really not meant for those people. I must say this fragrance is very soft, but when i have headaches i don’t like any kind of fragrance around me. Anyways that’s another part i don’t want to discuss about that, coz that happens rarely.  Otherwise its good for people who love flowery fragrances like me.

Now a days in winters, my hands are still soft and smooth. Even after washing my hands again and again i do not feel any roughness. Here i would like to mention that i apply this cream twice a day, once in the morning when i’m going out, also once in the evening going to bed. Still in winters my hands stay so soft and supple.

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream

The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream – Price

If i talk about packaging, its a nice hand bag size tube, which comes in 30ml. Its small size is really handy. I can keep this tube in my small clutch also.

I would definitely recommend The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream. This is value for money, must buy product.

Price: Rs.350/- for 30ml
