    SEPHORA COLLECTION Gold Den Brush Set 

    SEPHORA COLLECTION Gold Den Brush Set 1

    This is a luxurious four-piece brush set with a leopard-print theme that comes in a teal, faux leather pouch. The super soft brush heads are made up of the best quality synthetic hair for the eye brushes, and high-quality goat hair for the face brushes.

    This Set Contains:

    • Powder brush
    • Angled blush brush
    • Allover shadow brush
    • Smudge brush
    • 220mm X 135mm Pouch

    Pretty aren’t they. I already own similar brushes so I will have to resist buying them. But if you are looking for something similar then these are a really good buy. These are available at sephora here.

    some beauty purchases # 1 

    some beauty purchases 1

    oriflame pure colour nail polish true red – This is a beautiful red color. I love it. It looks good on most complexions.

    lux hand wash strawberry & cream – It smells amazing of strawberries with a hint of mint so fresh and sweet. But the product is not good. It dries out my hands and makes them darker. I always pump out a minimum small amount but that smallest amount manages to make my hand dry and dark.

    oriflame baby talc – It smells like sweet almonds. I love to use it sometimes because I like the smell. The talc is soft and smooth.

    some beauty purchases 2

    oriflame tender care coconut – I hate it smells yuck. The unflaveoured version smells bad and the flavoured ones still are no good. It is just another balm with beeswax and vaseline.

    lakme rose powder warm pink – it is a cheap powder and feels cheap on the skin. It doesnot give coverage it is a setting powder to just take out the shine, oil. I donot like the way it feels.

      I’m a big fans of Oriflame, use their cosmetics, follow their tips and fashion trends on Twitter, FB, Gplus everywhere. Love the brand for their quality and variety. I haven’t bought any nail polish from this brand yet so would like to try Pure Color Nail Polish True Red for sure.Thanks for the recommendation!

    Jason Color Protect Henna Pure Natural Shampoo review 

    Jason Color Protect Henna Pure Natural Shampoo 1

    This is my first shampoo from Jason and I am so glad that I got it. My hair is’t colored but still I love to use it. Those who haven’t colored their hair can use it too.

    My overall thoughts-
    :) It smells of sweet berries with a hint of bitter almonds. The smell is awesome. After shampooing my hair only smell of very sweet berries minus the bitter almond scent. I get a whiff of sweet berries everytime my hair come near my face. I love it.
    :) It is a tranparent shampoo with a slight tint. The consistency is a bit runny than a regular shampoo.
    :) It produces poor lather in the first attempt unless your hair is nearabout clean. So I always shampoo twice and in the second attempt it gives me a luxurious lather.
    :) It cleans really well. It removes all oil, dirt and any previous build-up from my scalp and hair and leaves them light-weight and clean. My hair feel clean, they smell clean.
    :) My scalp has never become sensitive, irritated, itchy or flaky after using this shampoo. Some hair products contain certain ingredients that may cause scalp itchiness and flakiness in some people. This shampoo also removes any scalp itchiness and flakiness caused by other hair products.
    :) This is not a moisturising shampoo. It doesnot leave any moisturising coating on the hair. You wont get any build-up from using this shampoo.
    :) Since this is not a moisturising shampoo, it is too drying for daily or frequent use. If used frequently it makes the hair dry and tangled. It works best for me if I oil my hair prior to shampooing or alternate it with a moisturising shampoo.
    :) For oiling my hair I prefer using coconut oil. I leave the oil overnight and shampoo the next morning or I oil my hair atleast an hour before shampooing. I always oil from the scalp to the hair ends.
    :) I also alternate this shampoo with a moisturising shampoo. Moisturising shampoos tend to make hair too oily, heavy from the moisturising coating they leave on the hair and limp. Using a cleansing shampoo like this gives my hair a thorough cleanse, removes build-up and makes my hair light-weight, shiny and bouncy and full of volume.
    :) So if I use this shampoo not so frequently means sometimes then this shampoo makes my hair soft and shiny, bouncy and full of volume.

    Ingredients- Aqua (Water), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Flower/Fruit/Leaf Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Equisetum Arvense Leaf Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract*, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Ascorbic Acid, Panthenol, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Citric Acid, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Phytantriol, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Alcohol*, Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance (Parfum), Annatto (CI 75120).

    Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & Saffron review 

    forest essentials night treatment cream sandalwood & saffron 1

    Saffron is renowned for its ability to give skin a golden glow and keep it youthful. This cream is an exotic blend of saffron and sandalwood in a base of skin nourishing oils, butters and extracts.

    My overall thoughts-
    :) I love the packaging. It looks very royal. But the golden cap shows off the greasy fingermarks quite easily.
    :) The scent is sooo awesome and smells exactly like a blend of saffron and sandalwood.
    :) This cream is not thick, heavy or oily. The texture is that of a lightly whipped cream.
    :) The texture is light but it contains so many natural skin nourishing oils that deeply moisturize and nourish. It makes my skin soft, moisturised and hydrated. It has also improved my skin tone and texture. My fines lines are less visible and my skin looks firm. When I wakeup in the morning my skin looks radiant and has a glow.
    :) I also use it around my eye area because is safe, gentle and moisturising for the delicate eye area. It doesnot sting or irritate my eyes.
    :) This cream has never clogged my pores or broke me out.
    :) Overall I love the cream but not the price.

    Ingredients- Olive Oil Derivatives 5%, Kasturi Manjal 5%, Sweet Almond Oil 4%, Sev Fruit Ferment Extract 2.5%, Kokum Butter 2.5%, Apricot Kernel Oil 2%, Sandalwood Oil 2%, Cylindrica Root Extract 2%, Vetiver Root Extract 2%, Anantmool 1.5%, Nagkesar 1.5%, Vitamin A 1%, Vitamin C 1%, Saffron Oil 1%, Rice Bran Extract 1%, Imidazolidinyl Urea (Paraben Free) 0.5%, Base QS.

    Forest Essentials Bath & Shower Oil Bengal Tuberose review 

    forest essentials bath & shower oil - bengal tuberose 1

    I love the tuberose products made by forest essentials. I decided to get their body oil this time. This body oil is awesome. It leaves my skin soft, hydrated and fragrant like I am wearing a perfume. I love it.

    My overall thoughts-
    :) The plastic see-through bottle is easy to use and hold. The golden cap gives it an elegant look but the cap shows off the greasy fingerprints quite easily.
    :) Tuberose is a very beautiful, sensual and an exquisite fragrance. I love this scent and the tuberose range by forest essentials smells very exotic. This bath oil is highly fragrant and I love it that way. It keeps my skin fragrant like I am wearing a perfume and the scent lasts for hours right till the next day. I skip perfume everytime I wear this oil. It even scents my clothes.
    :) This bath oil is light-weight, non-sticky and water soluble.
    :) I only apply a few drops and it gets easily absorbed leaving my skin moisturized. It is not greasy or sticky but is still very moisturising. My skin feels hydrated and nourished.
    :) This oil has never made my skin sensitive, irritated or itchy. It actually heals dry, dehydrated, itchy skin.
    :) Body lotions and creams are my staple but once in a week I love using bath oil on my skin. I apply it on my dry skin after bath. I also sometimes pour one-two capfuls in my bathtub.
    :) You require a very little amount, a little oil goes a long way. The bottle easily lasts for months.
    :) It moisturies, heals dry skin and also keeps my skin fragrant for hours.

    Ingredients- Cold Pressed Organic Almond Oil, Cold Pressed Organic Apricot Oil, Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil, Gokharu, Deodaru, Avocado Oil, Tuberose Essential Oil. All ingredients are organically grown and the base oils used are cold pressed by hand.

    Is this product 100% natural- This oil is 100% natural and free from any Parabens, Petroleum, GMO, Sulphates, Formaldehyde, PEGS, artificial colour, synthetic fragrance.

    • Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Perfumed Soap 100g

    Still manufactured in the cauldron and faithful to the artisan technique of deep down perfuming, Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Perfumed Soap cleans the skin gently.

And also if you regularly use these soaps then buying them in a pack will save you a few bucks then buying them individually. Available at feelunique.
