When it comes to face packs, I generally prefer using homemade ones (I am a firm believer in kitchen beauty). But it isn't always possible to use a freshly made pack, which is why I do keep a couple ready to use ones. Over the years I have tried quite a few and up today is the Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal 6 in 1 pack.

Aromatherapy is one field I like to occasionally dabble in. Its benefits are many and varied, soothing and healing. One of the truly remarkable things about essential oils is their ability to enhance mood and lift depression, as well as benefit a person physically.
I had purchased a bottle of lavender oil many years ago, and it became such a family favorite that having another one around was simply a must! So I thought I should share this wonder with all of you, may it calm you on the weariest of days :)
Lavender originates from France, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, England and Tasmania. Its flowering tops are the source of the essential oil. Essential oils are the aromatic substances extracted from the part of the plant that gives it its individual characteristics of scent, colour, and healing components. I like to think of it as the soul or the 'life-force' of the plant.
This particular oil is beneficial in burns, cuts and wounds, skin infections, skin care, acne, nausea, stress, headaches, arthritis, high blood pressure, muscular aches and pains, respiratory problems and insomnia to name a few.
It is highly anti-septic (as are all essential oils), anti-viral, anti-rheumatic, anti-spasmodic, anti-depressant, analgesic and sedative.
Coming to how I use it- as a cold compress, in diffusers, and light application on my forehead to aid sleep and get rid of stress headaches. It's a marvelous product, I cannot praise it enough! Few whiffs of this and I'm off to my happy place, relaxing in peace ^_^ Bliss..
Price : 180INR for 15ml
Are you a fan of aroma oils? Which ones do you prefer?

Hello hello! :D
There are days (months even) when Mommy dearest does not step into the parlour for skin indulgence. On the bright side is the fact that she gets to use a variety of home-made face treatments, but on the down side is that her face rarely even gets a massage.
So that's why this baby was bought, after screening multiple massage creams. That tiny 'visible results in just 7 days' claim intrigued us all, and considering that she was already using the Micro-emulsion from this range, we decided to give it a go!
Did it live up to its claim? Well, you'll have to read on to find out :)

Warning : This is going to be a rave review!
I cannot believe how many of my favourite products haven't been shared here yet! There are so many back logs :( I am trying to correct that asap and up today is MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural.
This was bought a year and a half back and this pan here is pure love.

This post has been due since I don't know how long!! Swati has been constantly pestering me to feature this beauty on the blog, but somehow it always got dumped into the back seat. Sorry about that :P
Now, if I had to describe which scents I lust after, lavender would definitely be at the top of the list. It's the most beautiful fragrance ever! Clean, floral, relaxing... everything that I could wish for in a single whiff. Love love love <3 data-blogger-escaped-p="">
On one of my trips to darling sis' city, we hopped into a M&S outlet and I literally went bonkers seeing this collection there! Rose and Lavender and what not! Such a delight I have not encountered since then.
My reasons for adoring this body cream are numerous. Read on to find out why :)
