I can’t keep calm because Durga Pujo is here! In fact, I’m already done with one night of pandal hopping and looking forward to more over the next few days. If you are not from Kolkata or if you’ve never experienced Pujo here, it is kinda hard to explain what this festival means to us Bengalis. It is five days of celebration, adda, ‘notun jama pora’, ‘thakur dekha’, ‘khawa’ and ‘moja kora’. Sleep takes a back-seat and food is on top of the agenda. Everyone wants to look their best during Pujo and I am no different. I visited the Kama Ayurveda store in Quest Mall recently to ask for advice on what products I should use for my combination skin to make it glow this Pujo. Read on to find out what I was prescribed and my skincare routine.

The Body Shop has added two new products to its Drops of Youth skincare range. One is the Youth Emulsion with SPF 20 and the other is the Drops of Youth Liquid Peel. If you have read this post, you will know how much I love using liquid peels on my skin. I prefer them over regular scrubs/exfoliators because peels are much more gentler on the skin and I feel they are more effective. I have been using the The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel for a few days now and here are my thoughts on the product.
About The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel exfoliates and gently peels off impurities from your skin, lifting dead skin cells and residuals. This revolutionary gel-to-peel leaves skin clean and purified from the day’s pollutants. Continued use will leave a fresh, smoother and more luminous youthful-looking skin.
