In this intense heat and humidity, the last thing we think of is applying a body lotion but there is a new lotion in town that claims to not only address the issue of uneven skin tone but also provide hydration and sun protection without making the skin greasy . Presenting, the new Kaya White Protect Body Lotion.
Nothing relaxes me more than a luxurious and pampering hair ritual so when Moroccanoil invited me to experience one of their treatments at Head Turners Salon at Salt Lake Sec V, I was more than happy to take up the offer. Moroccanoil’s range of hair care products using Argan oil is nothing short of celebrity status but I was yet to try them out and this was the perfect opportunity. Btw, did you guys also think that Moroccanoil is the name of the oil? I did and later realised that the oil is actually Argan and the brand’s name is Moroccanoil 😛
I must thank my favorite makeup artist, Lisa Eldridge for introducing me to Bioderma Sensibio H20. She mentioned in a video a few years back that this was her HG product to remove makeup and that made me sit up and take notice. Bioderma at that time was not available in India so I waited for my trip to Paris to get hold of this wonder product. I went crazy at a French pharmacy and bought two huge 500 ml bottles that lasted me pretty much the entire second half of 2014. Now that Bioderma is officially available in India (Nykaa, Wellness Forever and Noble Chemist), it is time I do a review.
First, let’s start by explaining what exactly is Micellar water and why is it good for the skin.
Originating in France, micellar water gained its name because of the micelles oil molecules in its water-like formula of ingredients. When applied to the skin, these molecules latch onto the dirt, make-up and other impurities sitting on your skin, removing them in an effective and gentle matter. They feel – and look – like a toner, but excel at cleansing the skin, while also leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. There’s no need to rinse after using micellar water, making it a skin-loving version of the traditional face wipe.
I have normal to dry hair specifically dry ends so I’m constantly looking for products that not only clean but also moisturize, smoothen and add shine to my hair. I was using the TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidote Shampoo and Conditioner that really worked well but I think I’ve got my hands on a great drugstore alternative. And that is the new Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, created to deal with dry and dull hair.

When the weather is this hot and humid, you want to apply something light on your face and my choice this summer has been the Pond’s White Beauty BB+cream with SPF 30. I like this cream because it is not only lightweight but also mattifies the skin, is tinted, has sunscreen and blends very well to give an even tone to the skin. You can use this cream as a base to create a number of makeup looks and in this post, I’ll show you three summer looks that I’ve created with the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream. The looks are what I call Summer Glow, Summer Bright and Summer Glam. All three are very simple and does not take a lot of time, effort or products to create.
