L'Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

I am on a roll with hair care product reviews aren't I? :D I hope you have read the past 2 posts of Aveda Cherry Almond Range & the L'Oreal Absolute Repair Hair Mask.
Today I am talking about another shampoo + conditioner duo which I finished using many months back but somehow missed featuring them on the blog - the L'Occitane Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner. Let's dive in!

The Face Shop Chia Seed Hydro Cream

While 2020 was the year of essence for me, 2021 looks like it's going to be all about moisturizers. I have been continuously drawn to them these past couple of months & surprisingly or not so surprisingly, they are all korean ones. What can I say? They make good moisturizers! 

I've been testing out The Face Shop Chia Seed Hydro Crème, which I was kindly gifted by the brand, for 2 weeks now in my morning routine. Read on to know my experience :)

L'Oreal Serie Expert Gold Quinoa + Protein Absolut Repair Masque

I am not very particular when it comes to hair care. While I do have some absolute favourites which I repurchase time & again, I also like trying out new haircare products - shampoos, conditioners & hair masks, & for the past few months I have been using L'Oreal Serie Expert Absolute Repair Masque - Gold Quinoa + Protein. Let's dive into how my experience has been :)

Cosrx Advanced Snail Mucin 96 Power Essence

If you had told me a few years ago that I would happily be rubbing snail slime on my face, I would have probably crinkled up my nose is disgust: but what can I say? 2020 was definitely a year of surprises! 
A dedicated post about one of my favourites- the I'm From Mugwort Essence is already up on the blog, and today I wanted to share with you the product that started my essence obsession - the Cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence.

Aveda Cherry Almond Shampoo & Conditioner

While I do not experiment with my skincare products a lot, I do love trying out new things in haircare and switch between shampoos & conditioners often. 

When Aveda launched in India a while back, the first thing I picked up from their range was the Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo & Conditioner. I usually love the smell of almonds for bodycare (L'occitane Almond Range I am looking at you!) & extending that to haircare seemed like a no brainer. I have repurchased this duo 3 times over the past 2 years and I think it's about time to pen down my thoughts.

Fun fact : They had a previous version of this called Cherry Almond Bark which was released in 1978! It was discontinued in 2008 but has been re-released as the Cherry Almond range now :)

Dot & Key Foot Cream - Deodorizer + Moisturiser

Hello everyone! We have reviewed quite a few Dot & Key products on the blog before, I hope you have read those posts. If you haven't then you can read them here :

I'm adding another product to the list today - their Foot Cream : Deodorizer + Moisturiser.
While I don't experiment with face products a lot, I do like trying out different bodycare products. I picked this foot cream up in the summer because the sound of peppermint & deodorising sounded promising. Read on to know my thoughts!

The Earth Rhythm Coconut Oil Shampoo Bar

I have been using the The Earth Rhythm Coconut Oil Shampoo Bar for over a month now & here are my quick thoughts on it. ⠀

There's a video on my post HERE which you can check out to see how my hair looks like after using the bar (I had oiled my hair prior to shampooing and haven't used any conditioner). ⠀

Suganda White Lotus Moisturiser

I had already shared my quick thoughts about this on our Instagram page  but I wanted to document my experience on the blog too for my reference and for any one else who like me still likes to read blogs. 

I have combination skin & during the hot humid Indian summer I prefer using products that are not too heavy. Last summer I was in search of a few light products & picked up the Suganda White Lotus Moisturiser after seeing a lot of good reviews. 

The moisturiser comes in a glass bottle with a pump packaging - the packaging feels sturdy & I like the pump mechanism. There is a cap which is to be put over the pump which I hated - because it is one of those which have a slit and can only be put in one direction. Kinda annoying, but I am willing to let it go.

I'm From Mugwort Essence

It's been years since I started my skincare journey but essences were never a part of it. Mostly because my skin was oily earlier, so I did not feel the need for using one and also because I didn't get on board with Korean skincare. Trust me when I say that I kick myself mentally every time for living under a rock for so long! Why, oh why didn't I explore Korean skincare before?
And then in 2019 Smriti made me use the Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream which I fell deeply in love with (more about it on another day), and I delved into the world of K-beauty. While I haven't tried a lot of products yet, there can be no doubt that 2020 was the year I discovered the joy and value of essences. There are two products which are responsible for my fangirl moment - the Cosrx Snail Mucin essence and the I'm From Mugwort Essence. Both these products made it to my 2020 skincare favourites which you can check out here, in case you missed it.

My 2020 Skincare Favourites

I originally wanted to share quick thoughts about each product on this Instagram post itself, but I was limited by caption space. So now I am here instead penning down my thoughts about my skincare favourites of 2020. 
These are the products I have been using for majority of the past year and they all are well & truly loved. Most of them have already been repurchased (fear of running out) and those which have not been will most certainly be repurchased soon. 
You will notice as you read further that my main focus for skincare has been hydration, soothing & calming (terms I will use to describe every second product on my list!)
Anyway, let's get into this.
