Valentine’s Day 2017 Gift Ideas!

Hey guys,

Yet another Valentine’s day is here, a day to express how much you love your loved ones.. Gifts can be any, as long as they are thoughtful. I have done several gift guides earlier with different themes. This time around, my focus is on ‘skincare’ because great skin is a blessing and if you could gift that to some one you hold close to your heart, well why not?.

Review : October 2015 Glambox!

Hey guys!

Though late, here are my thoughts on October’s Glambox 🙂

Fotor_145306234742043

1) Vita Coco coconut water – I was quite surprised seeing this in the box. This coconut water, packed in a tetra pack is so sweet and refreshing!. It’s just like sticking a straw in a coconut. This is perfect for hydrating yourself while on-the-go. According to this brand, this product is straight from the tree and never from concentrate. Their process is – “Pick, Crack and Pack!. This is a product of Philippines and each bottle contains 330 ml. There are 4 variants – Original version (which I received), Lemonade, Pineapple and Peach & Mango versions. The latter three are created by combining coconut water + the respective all natural fruit purees. I can’t wait to try out the other variants. You guys do check it out too.

2) Labello – The next lovely product is a Labello and it’s the latest one!. It’s fruity shine watermelon ♡. Labello is one of my favorite lip balms. They are always so moisturizing. This variant has a gorgeous everyday kind of color, delicious watermelon aroma and gives a soft glossy look. It’s such a perfect color. It just gives a wash of color thus making your lips look healthy and rosy. Love it!

The tube is designed in a new way. There is a slant at the top and overall, it’s body is thicker while it’s base is the regular size. Also, it has pretty pictures of watermelon & stars on it to indicate ‘Fruity shine watermelon’.

3) VLCC Face mask – I have loved VLCC’s products so far. So I was excited to find one in this box. This mask contains Liquorice & Fenugreek and is a natural fairness mask. Liquorice is known for it’s powerful skin whitening properties and fenugreek soothes and relaxes the skin. It’s light yellow colored. It does give a fresh look once applied for 10-15 minutes and then washed away. However, I cannot stand it’s smell. It’s really strong and it gave me a major headache. It could be the scent of liquorice but I am not sure. I will definitely not buy a full sized version of this ever!. The little tube contained 15 ml.

4) Nivea Powder Touch Anti perspirant – This is a product I have tried before. It dries quickly and has a pleasant scent that stays for a good while. The little can contains 35 ml.

5) Derma e Antioxidant Natural sunscreen – This came in a little sachet with just 3.5gms. It contains Zinc Oxide and has a broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage. I quite like it. It contains SPF 30 and has the consistency of a lotion. It’s easy to apply and imparts a light whitish blue tint to the face which is characteristic of any sunscreen that contains Zinc Oxide.

6) Yardley perfume samples – I never knew Yardley perfumes were out there in the market. I love their powders & deo sprays. Anyways there are 2 samples – one of English Rose and the other of Jasmine. English Rose is such a stunning scent!. I will make sure I get a full sized version of this. I am not a fan of their Jasmine scented products. So, I passed it onto my mom. Each sample contained 2.5 ml.
