Product Review: Innisfree Best Loved Collection

Korean beauty and skincare is a real thing. It’s what bloggers around the world swear by (well, some anyway) and anything the Koreans do becomes an instant hit. Even if it is makeup for hooded eyes which most of the others aren’t lucky enough to have. Aren’t they the cutest? Anyway, Innisfree is a brand from Korea which is only 6 years old and is known for being natural and environment-friendly. They put their heart and Seoul into that philosophy. Yes, I put that entire sentence in only for that pun. Moving on. You know I was in Delhi right? So I was just going around the Galleria Market in Gurgaon and they had an Innisfree store right there. And because it was right there, I had to walk in. And I ended up buying two face masks which I am still to use. But. I did get samples of their ‘Best Loved Collection’  for becoming a member. So I used those and here’s a review.   Innisfree Orchid Enriched cream Feel: This anti-aging (a claim …

Hair Service Review: Geetanjali Salon, Select Citywalk, Delhi

So you know I was in Delhi about 2 weeks ago and did many salon reviews as  apart of my visit. Besides eating a lot of delicious food that is. Guys, let me tell you this. The food in Delhi isn’t famous without good reason. It is beyond soul satisfying. It’s the kind of food where you know you are full but you must keep having more. As it happens to me with food usually, I digress. Since I was at Select Citywalk in Saket, I also went out and hopped over to Geetanjali Salon there. Here’s the review.   The Space Let’s just say that the space here is limited. It’s like one big room, broken down into many rooms. And a lot of the stuff has been stashed into other things to make space. It’s not big is what I will say. It’s quite busy most of the time with people walking in and out or chilling on chairs just watching other people get their services done. Right off the bat, I can …

My Nighttime Skincare Routine

There comes a time in every blogger’s life where they must cave in to pressure of doing a routine post. I caved, okay? I gave in. But admit it, secretly, you were dying to know my nighttime skincare routine. No? Okay, atleast you are normal. Anyway, after tweaking and turning my skincare routine upside down, I realised that a long-drawn routine just wasn’t my thing. If I am going to load up the products on my skin before I snooze, I get bored and don’t end up doing anything at all. So I truncated my to-dos. And here’s what I do now. Squeaky Clean I was doing a makeup course with an academy called Fat Mu here in Mumbai. And we would have lots of makeup on our faces everyday. And that’s where I also discovered the beauty of micellar water. Micellar water has oil molecules suspended in it. It all sounds very fancy and it probably is but more importantly, I like what it does. Now, I knew about this. What with all the …

App Review: Healthify me

If you don’t know already, my brother is getting married and I have decided to get in shape for it. It is 6 months away but I have the control of a dog in heat and I don’t trust myself to be on the wagon that long. But that’s what I thought I was doing. At this point in time, I am sitting here burping lovely burps of masala pav that was laden with cheese. So that plan isn’t exactly on track. Anyway, when I had the enthusiasm, (about 8 days or so ago) I downloaded the HealthifyMe app. This is an app that promises to make your healthier. It does say it’s a weight loss coach but I think it’s a bit of a tall claim. Notice that I say healthier and not weighing less, necessarily. Of course, I wanted to do a review and I took screenshots. There are lots of apps that help you with your fitness plan, but I was looking for one that was specifically skewed towards the Indian audience …

Nail Service Review: Looks Salon, Saket, Delhi

It’s been a while since I have posted huh? Well, I have been travelling. And I went to Delhi. Now since I was there for a couple of days, I did a few things. Of course, I did consume an insane amount of food. How do people in Delhi even try and stay skinny? And then I went over to the salons everyone told me about and did reviews. Here’s a review of the Looks Salon in Saket. Looks is one of the popular salons in the Delhi / Gurgaon area and pretty much every popular place you go to ends up having Looks, Affinity and Geetanjali, literally next to each other. I went to Looks first. But don’t worry (not that you were, because who worries about that?) I have covered the others as well. The Space Look, we know. Delhi has no space constraints. So obviously, this salon was big. A little bit like a labyrinth with tiny passageways to I don’t know mysterious hair treatments but big nonetheless. I went to the …
