I was recently sent some products by Burst Of Happyness, a brand that makes wonderful vegan, natural, handmade bath and body products, and one of the first products I tried out was their Lavender & Grapefruit Deodorant Cream. Here are my thoughts on the product -
Price : Rs 480 for 50 g
Product claims : A one of its kind natural deodorant cream which helps to eliminate body odour and inhibit bacterial growth.
Baking Soda has natural deodorizing qualities. Arrow Root Flour helps to absorb moisture. Jojoba oil has a non greasy texture which resembles human sebum and helps to soften the skin. Cocoa Butter is rich in vit E and offers great moisturizing benefits. Coconut Oil has anti bacterial properties. Sunflower oil is a light oil which is easily absorbed and it offers anti inflammatory properties. Essential oils make sure that your pits smell good all day long!
This deodorant cream contains no water, therefore doesn’t need ANY chemicals to preserve, emulsify, thicken, etc. . It is all natural and free from aggressive chemicals like parabens, aluminium compounds, which are linked to various health issues.
Available in two scents
Cedarwood + Bergamot – A combination of musky, earthy mixed with citrus topped with a hint of Rosewood essential oil. It is a unisex fragrance.
Lavender & Grapefruit – A combination of floral fruity fragrance.

Forest Essentials Soundarya Beauty Body Oil (Rs 2295 for 200 ml)
Product Claims : An exquisite Body Massage Oil is made with the most precious ingredients, including the path breaking Soundarya Serum. Amongst its incredibly effective ingredients are Ashwagandha, Gotkula and Bala used in traditional Indian medicine for centuries as Anti ageing herbs with tremendously rejuvenating properties.
Unrefined Organic Black Sesame keeps skin supple, soft and toned, and sweet Almond oil provides nutrition and deeply moisturizes, Potent herb and flower infusions improve the lustre of the skin, and increase circulation by their absorption into the blood stream. Whole Cream Cow’s milk nourishes the skin while restoring firmness, increasing collagen and giving it sheen. 24 K Gold Bhasma has the property of penetrating to the deepest layer of skin, thereby providing radiance and increased elasticity.
Key ingredients : SesamumIndicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, PrunusAmydgalusDulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil,TriticumVulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, WithaniaSomnifera (Ashwagandha) Root Extract, SidaCordifolia (Bala) Root Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Whole Cream Cow’sMilk, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Vetiveria Zizanoides (Vetiver) Root Extract, Elettaria Cardamomum (Cardamom) Seed Extract, FoeniculumVulgareDulce (Sweet Fennel) Fruit Extract, OcimumBasilicum (Basil) Leaf Extract, Crocus Sativus (Saffron) Flower Infusion, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, 24 Karat Gold Bhasma.
My experience with the Forest Essentials Soundarya Beauty Body Oil
I love Forest Essentials products and the Soundarya Body Oil just fueled my love for the brand! The oil is non-greasy and smells absolutely heavenly. The scent reminds me of their Kashmiri Saffron cleanser – an exquisite, delicate scent that instantly gives a feeling of luxury and relaxation. The mix of vetiver (khus), cardomom, saffron and sandalwood definitely makes a great fragrance. The directions for use dictate using this as a massage oil before bath but I generally use this as after-bath oil and it works pretty great as a moisturizer. I use a really tiny amount on damp skin and massage it well. It absorbs on massage leaving a satiny but non-sticky feel on the skin. I love how the scent lingers a little but not overpoweringly so. My skin feels supple, hydrated and soft after use and the effect stays throughout the day.
The product description lists some precious ingredients like 24k Gold Bhasm but its listed at the bottom of the ingredient list so I’m guessing the concentration would be quite low. I don’t know if its increased the firmness or collagen in my skin but I do like how my skin feels after use.
If you like indulgent, luxurious body products that smell lovely – you would love this! I personally love this during the winters when my skin could definitely use the richness of an oil like this!

Chambor ventures into fragrances with the launch of 2 floral body mists – Mystique Magnolia and Tender Tuberose. I tried both of these at the store recently (these are available at Shoppers Stop and other departmental stores) and they seemed quite fresh and nice, though predominantly floral. If you like floral scents, do check these out!
Price : Rs 595 for 200 ml
Here’s the official press note : Mystique Magnolia – Extracted from the fragrant gardens in spring time, this incredible mix of diverse notes with capture your imagination with every spray. With a burst of Green and Citrus notes, Mystique Magnolia easily becomes a journey through fragrances of Magnolia, Muguet and Aldehydic Notes, leaving one with the lingering allure of musky and woody notes.
