Bright Summer makeup using ColourPop Lychee


Summer is here and while it is an incredibly fun time of the year, its also taxing on our skin. The soaring temperatures and hot winds of this season can result in skin damage, making it rough and dull. It is important to take care of our skin throughout the season.

Here are 10 home remedies for glowing skin in summer.

  • Water therapy – One of the most commonly spoken about remedies, but not as often followed, water therapy can be a highly effective procedure for getting a glowing skin this summer. Drinking plenty of water not only keeps your body hydrated, but also rids the body of toxins.
  • Cucumber and yogurt face pack – This combination makes for a highly useful face pack for glowing skin in summer. Mix half a cucumber and one tablespoon yogurt in a blender and apply the paste on your face. Leave the paste on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with water.
  • Rosewater – This is a simple but effective tip. Wash your face with rose water daily. The natural properties of rosewater make it act as a toner and make your skin glow.
  • Milk and banana – Another popular combination for the summer is banana and milk. Applying a paste made of a mixture of banana and milk for around 15-20 minutes will give result in glowing and soft skin. To boost this effect, moisturize with an appropriate lotion like the Olay Total EffectsL ighweight Anti-Ageing Cream for soft, supple skin.

L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam, Immortelle Precious Cream SPF 20


Hi everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing 2 products from the L’Occitane Immortelle skin care line. The brand shared the Cleansing Foam and the SPF20 Day Cream with me for review some months back. I’ve tried bath/body care products and fragrances from the brand but this is the first time I’m trying out their skincare. The Immortelle range is meant for ageing skin and contains extracts of the Immortelle flower which is supposed to have firming properties on the skin.

Spring-Summer launches from Clinique India


Hi everyone! Yesterday I attended the launch of the new Clinique Fresh pressed system and BIY Blend it yourself pigment drops at Verbena, Lower Parel. The setting and ambiance was so lovely with lots of light and greenery, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the launch with you.

The Fresh pressed range has 2 products – a powder cleanser that comes in one-time use satchets and a Vitamin C Booster Emulsion that you can add to your moisturizer for powerful anti-ageing and brightening benefits. The new launch in makeup this season are the BIY pigment drops that allow you to create a custom coverage base product, with the texture of your choice. It reminds me of the CoverFX Custom Cover drops! There’s also a new mascara which once again plays to the custom theme, you can basically vary the amount of product picked up by the wand to get a natural or dramatic look. I’ll be reviewing all these products once I’ve had the chance to try them out for a few weeks. Happy weekend!

My Top 10 Spring-Summer Beauty Essentials



Spring-Summer Beauty Essentials


As spring slowly eases into summer, its time to update our beauty routines if you’ve not done that already! Its time to switch the lush oils and creams for lighter, non-greasy textures, ditch the vampy lip colors and smokey eyes for pop liners and cheery bright lip colors.

I’ve picked out my top 10 spring-summer beauty essentials below!


1. Face Cleanser | It’s very important to change up your skin care as the seasons change. Skin tends to get a little oily as the weather starts to warm up. This seasonal change can cause clogged pores and pimples. I absolutely love using Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood & Nagkesar Masque when my skin needs a deep, non-stripping cleanse. This also tightens and brightens skin slightly, drawing out unwanted impurities and excess oil. In fact, it’s one of my favorite picks and I recommend using this once or twice weekly.


2. Hydrating Face Cream | This is also the time to change your moisturizer, especially your night cream. While I love using facial oils in winter, I prefer something a little lighter in Spring-Summer, without compromising on hydration and anti-ageing benefits. The Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream is the perfect option for ladies in their late 20s-early 30s as it provides ample hydration in a gel-cream formula and addresses early ageing concerns as well!


3. Dry Shampoo | I think a dry shampoo is a must for sweaty Indian summers! It’s the time of year when scalps experience increased oiliness, leading to limp, greasy looking second day hair. A dry shampoo absorbs excess oil and adds lift and texture to the roots. The Batiste Dry shampoo in Blush has a lovely mild floral scent. Plus, it doesn’t leave white traces and the small travel size is perfect for carrying in one’s handbag!
