Recipes of Nature is a new range of 100% vegetarian face masks from The Body Shop. Formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil, these masks are inspired from nature and three of them are actually 100% vegan. And what is interesting is that there is a mix and match concept to these masks. Based on your skin concern, you can apply a mask on that area. For example, if you have an oily T zone and dry forehead and cheeks, you can apply Himalayan Charcoal on the T zone and the British Rose or Ethiopian Honey on the dry areas.
Packed, crushed and drizzled with natural ingredients, each one has been expertly formulated with your skin’s needs in mind. Made with 100% vegetarian ingredients (our Himalayan Charcoal, British Rose and Amazonian Acai masks are actually 100% vegan) and formulated without parabens, paraffins, silicone or mineral oils – just our finest recipes packed with beauty superfoods from Himalayan charcoal to Amazonian acai berries. Inspired by traditional beauty remedies from around the world, each jar contains a secret power from purifying to nourishing to help your skin look and feel as good as you do inside.

What according to you is the worst part of applying makeup? For me, it is the process of taking it off! Cleansing oil, cleansing wipes, face wash, toner. Just way too much effort! And that is why micellar water is such a boon. All you need to do is wet a cotton pad with the water and wipe off the makeup. No need to rinse and it takes only 5 minutes. Earlier, only French pharmacy brands like Bioderma and Avene etc used to make micellar water but recently, a lot of drugstore brands are coming out with the product. The latest launch in India is the L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water. Read on to find out if it works.
