New Additions In My Stash: Forest Essentials (Mini Haul) + First Impressions

For the past few months I have been really enjoying products from Forest Essentials. This brand isn't new to me, no, I had a couple of their products in my stash and like them a lot (Narangi and Nagkesar Ubtan, Light Hydrating Eye Gel, Sweet Narangi Lip Balm). 
The last couple of months saw me dig a little more into their products and here are my thoughts about them:

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Pumpkin - a vegetable I have never been able to take a liking to. There's just something about it which makes me feel ewww-ish. But what smells like pumpkin (with hints of cinnamon) that I can never say no to? The Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Dermal Resurfacer! That's a mouthful isn't it? But boy, oh boy! This mask is all kinds of amazing! It is really, really the next level of masks! 

When it comes to masks, the market is flooded with clarifying mud masks, hydrating masks, cleansing masks, detoxifying masks... you name the concern and there is a mask out there for it. But not that many which claim to exfoliate and resurface the skin. Which is why I like love the PTR Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. It resurfaces, exfoliates, peels and polishes all in 1! Sounds great, right? It is!

OPI Tickle My France-y

It has been quite a since I shared a nailpolish here on the blog. Well, I hadn't picked any new ones for a while so that is one of the reasons, and secondly, I was keeping my nails bare off late. 

Anyway, one of my favourite nude-y colors to wear was the Maybelline Superstay Gel Polish in Rose Poudre (swatched here). And like all things that I like, it had to be discontinued. I have been looking for a new bottle everywhere and I just cannot find it. So I had to find a replacement of course and the OPI Tickle My France-y caught my attention!

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour

One of the launches from Bobbi Brown that I was super excited about were the Crushed Lip Colors. The way they were described was dreamy and I couldn't wait to give them a try! It is said to be inspired by the effortless and easy beauty routines of the brand’s girl crushes. Undone beauty, just a hint of lip color, effortless barely there makeup look? Yeah, I’m sold!
Finally, after some wait I got my hands on 2 shades (after a lot of contemplation and resisting picking up 4 more!). Take a look...

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

If I am not wrong, I have only started to use eye creams religiously over the past 1 1/2 years. The previous occasional 1-2 times a week does not really count. 
Fast forward now, I WILL apply an eye cream every morning and night. Without fail (except for a rare late night, when I have been found guilty of skipping it only to regret it next morning)

I have been experiencing quite dry skin around my eyes lately the point that the dry skin causes constant irritation = very frequent rubbing = frictional darkness...well, that's my assumption. 
So I was on a pursuit to find a richer eye cream and I finally picked up the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment.

Dr Sheth's, Part I : Daily Cleanser, Youth Glotion and Daily Peel

You know my love for skincare by now (I hope). I love to give new promising sounding products a try and I am always on a quest to find better products that deliver more. When Dr Sheth's came out with their range of products, I had to try them out! Afterall, these products are developed by Dr Rekha Sheth and tailored especially for Indian skin! 

I started with the Basic Brightening Youth Glotion (as I was on the lookout of a daily moisturizer then) and then added the Basic Brightening Daily Cleanser and Extra Gentle Daily Peel to the stash too. 
It has been over a month of using these products and it is time I shared my thoughts with you all.

Forest Essentials Rasa Activating Serum

If you have been following me on Instagram, you must be aware of my new love for Forest Essentials. Not that I did not like the brand before, I had a couple of items in my stash, but over the past couple of months, that number has increased a lot! My love for skincare is growing each day (read - turning into an obsession), and with that I am trying out for better products everytime.

When it comes to skincare, serums are one of my favourites. I was using a night one, but needed a good one for the day as well. I previously tried the Innisfree Green Tea serum, which sadly did not do anything much for me (I know a lot of you like it though, so don't hate me for saying this). And then Forest Essentials launched their new Rasa Activating Serum which sounded lovely. Of course I had to give it a shot!

Nykaa Haul! (With First Impressions)

Hello all! 

It has been a while since I did a haul post here (the last one is shared here), and I have been a bit on a shopping spree lately (don't make me feel guilty okay), so I thought to quickly share my thoughts about the things I got. Take a look at what I picked!

Smashbox Photofinish Primerizer

I do not use much makeup on an everyday basis. The days when I do use makeup, I tend to skip foundation/bb/cc creams. Yeah, I am not too much into base makeup...yet. But the one thing I do like using is primer (that is on days I do reach out for some makeup). For the longest time my go-to/favourite primer was, and still is (for different purposes which I shall talk about a little later) the L'oreal Base Magique. 
A few months back (blame YouTube!) I got very curious about the new Smashbox Primerizer.... primeri..what? You see it is a primer + moisturizer 2-in-1. Get it now?
