MyTake on this Month's Box

Its an interesting curation this month. Apart from the regular makeup, skincare and perfume, there is this footwear protection spray. I'm looking forward to using this completely new product. Forest Essentials is my favourite and I am glad they have sent me the teenage creams since i have very oily and acne prone skin, so i'm hoping these two creams will not be too heavy for my skin. The Votre After Sun Mist is also a welcome addition to the Box. I love a cool spritz on my face after an outing in the sun. I am loving the Essence Nail Polish and Eyeshadow. I have used them both and they are really nice! As for the Calvin Klein Eternity Perfume? Who does not like a vial ti keep in the purse and spray it on when the occasion demands?

Total Value of Box: INR 2076/- (approx). Excellent, sine you pay only 850/- for the box. 

Overall Verdict: Just go for it!

What's in My FabBag? June 2017 Edition

Hi Everyone!

I know I had completely disappeared in the month of May and put up no new posts. A whole bunch of things were going on. My Dad's cook and my cleaning lady had gone on a month long leave and I had to shuttle between my home and Dad's to manage everything. On top of it all, I was under the weather for at least 10 days! So it was all crazy and I had no time to put up any posts. I did shoot a couple of videos but couldn't manage to edit them on time.... so...

Anyway, here we are. Let's do a quick roundup of what FabBag has for us this month.

The June FabBag is themed Boho Chic.


I like the understated Jute finish bag.



So here is this month's collection. There are 4 products in the Bag this month





BioBloom Foot Cream (Eucalyptus)
Product Price: INR 335/- for 50 gms
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size



Johara Creme Rich Lip Colour Cocoa Delight
Product Price: INR 395/- for 4.5 gms
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size


Sugar Twist and Shout FadeProof Kajal on 01 Black Velvet
Product price: INR 399/-
Sample size in Bag: Full Size


APS Cosmetofood Activated Spring Water
Product Price: 270/- for 50 ml
Sample size in Bag: Full Size


Hey that's all four full sized products! What I like best in this month's bag is the Sugar Twist and Shout Kajal. The Johara lipstick was this month's product of choice, so I chose this neutral brown. It will make a nice present, since I am drowning in lipsticks at the moment. The BioBloom foot cream is nice too, the Eucalyptus variant is quite refreshing and the cream itself gets absorbed quite easily. As for the APS Cosmetofood Activated Spring Water, check out the detailed video of my first impressions HERE

Value of Bag: INR 1399/-. That's great, because I paid INR 416/- for the bag (I have an annual subscription)

Overall Verdict: Great value for money Bag! Though none of the products were those that I desperately wanted, a woman can never have too many Kajals. If you like what you see, book your June Bag today!

First Impression: APS Cosmetofood Activated Organic Spring Water Face Cleanser and Makeup Remover

Hello All!

Its after a long time that I have filmed a video. This time its about a new product that I received in my June 2017 FabBag. It is called APS Cosmetofood Activated Organic Spring Water Face Cleanser and Makeup Remover. Hmmm.... quite a mouthful.
India has been introduced to micellar water cleansers through Vichy, Bioderma and a host of other French brands that have launched here in the last couple of years. 

APS is an Indian brand and this product has been manufactures in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. This is where many of the products of beauty brands are manufactured as well.

Anyhow, do click on the video below to see what I thought of this product.

Don't forget to give me a thumbs-up if you like the video. I prefer to keep my videos raw and real in this world of lighting and other editing trick.  






Stay real and beautiful!

My Envy Box March 2017 Edition


Hi Everyone!

We are moving from spring into summer. It means that the air around us is changing. So our beauty regimen needs to change too. Starting from skin care and make up, to fragrances, pamper yourself from inside out. The theme itself for this month is RELAX. RENEW. REFRESH

My Envy Box will help you pamper yourself as the season shifts. Let us see how.....



The Box itself looks lovely and fresh with water - colour floral accents. 





Gardener Street Tea - Glow
Product Price: INR 450/- for 20 sachets
Sample Size in Box: 3 sachets

I love green tea. And when it comes enriched with hibiscus and marigold, it jus reaches another level! 


All Good Scents Jasmine and Rose
Product Price: INR 1190/- for 50 ml
Sample Size in Box: 2 vials 2 ml each

Perfumes are perennial, but it is an essential in summers! These two fragrances, rose and jasmine are very typically Indian. I have always been partial to floral scents and I'm happy that these two are part of this month's box.


Eyova Hair Oil
Product Price: INR 590/- for 50 ml
Sample Size in Box: Full Size

I did not know about egg oil. Now I do. I am really curious about this product and I'll let you know how it works for me.


Essence Lip Liner in 15 Honey Berry
Product Price: INR 129/- for 1 gm
Sample Size in Box: Full Size

This month MEB allows you to choose your preferred makeup product. They offered 3 variants of Essence Lip Liners. I like this idea since I can pick colours I do not have or those more suitable for my complexion.


Wicca Beauty Potion
Product Price: INR 700/- for 15 gms
Sample Size in Box: Full Size

I've used this product a couple of times. On first impression it did not feel very moisturizing or hydrating on my skin. The air is quite dry with very low humidity right now. So I'm going to reserve my judgement of the product till I use it in the more humid months.


Neemli Coffee and Cocoa Body Wrap
Product Price: INR 550/- for 75 gms
Sample Size in Box: Full Size

A product to pamper the body too. I love coffee. I am looking forward to trying out this body wrap!

Total Value of Box: INR 2086/- approx. Great value for money since you pay only INR 850/- for the box!

Overall Verdict: I really like this month's box. It brings you not 4 but actually 7 products, of which 4 are full size. Each of the sample targets a different beauty concern. I would say, close your eyes and buy it!

What's in My FabBag? March 2017 Edition

Hello Everybody!

This month FabBag gives me yet another reason to love it! FabBag usually sends 4 to 5 products of which gnerally 1 is a full sized product. This month they have packed 6 products of which 2 are full sized. So let's do a quick roundup and see if you should pick one up this month.



I'm not sure I like the leatherette bag, FabBag has had better.






Moha Herbal Shower Gel
Product Price: INR 105 for 100 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 30ml

The product smells fresh and herby with a strong minty fragrance. Great as a travel pack. Nice!




Seduction Las Vegas Lipstick 06 Nude Love
Product Price: INR 180/- 
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size

The lipstick was the customer choice item for this month. It i a nice pinkish brown shade which makes for a lovely nude on my complexion. Given its price point, its quite good!




Ayorma SPF 40 Sun Block
Product Price: INR 349/- for 50 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 10 ml

Ayorma is a small brand, but it delivers quality products. I have used their facewash, scrub and night cream and I really liked them. So I am looking forward to using their sunblock too.




Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer 013 Break on Blue
Product Price: INR 249/-
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size

I'm currently wearing this nail lacquer on my toe nails. I'm not confident enough to wear on my fingernails. And I'm liking my matte blue toenails!




Kronokare Flower Power Face Toner 
Product Price: INR 295/- for 100 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 55 ml

Kronokare also has some great products in its stable. I have already enjoyed using their body wash, body oil and moisturizer. So the Face toner looks promising.



The Nature's Co. Sandalwood Turmeric Anti-Blemish Cream
Product Price: INR 895/- for 50 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 20 ml

The Nature's Co. is a well known brand with some great products. Since I have acne issues and marks that they leave behind, I'm hoping this product will work for me.

Total Value of Bag: INR 1050/- approx. Decent Value for money if you are going to pay INR 416-599/- (depending on your subscription)

Overall Assessment: I think its a good bag and if you like what you see, quickly order yours!
