Product Review: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

There’s a point in my life where I have everything except a scrub. I have too many products at all times but I always think I could use something more. You should know that I do not need anything more. I just think I should get it. So I went hunting for a good scrub. A scrub that would leave me glowing and gorgeous and with the skin of a 16 year old. And I chanced upon the Dermalogica Daily Mircofoliant. Here’s a review. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Feel: Well, well, well. What do you know. First of all, this product will throw you right off because it’s not a scrub in the traditional sense. It’s a powder. It looks like something you could shoot up your nose but you shouldn’t unless you want squeaky clean nostrils and why do you want that? Anyway, this is a powder and it’s white. Trump would be happy. Fragrance: It doesn’t smell like anything. Even mildly. Great for people with sensitive noses. Price: Rs. 975  for 13 grams Buy it …

Product Review: Kaya Skin Awakening Rinse and Brightening Eye Serum

The description here is long. I know. But also this is a post about how dermatologists in our country are probably smoking up some very potent stuff. A lady at the Kaya counter was a very good sales person and she convinced I needed a facewash for the morning. Which let me tell you now, you don’t. You never will. A face wash doesn’t know timing and will do its job in the AM and PM. Yeah, so I didn’t need it and you won’t also. She also managed to sell me the Kaya Brightening and Firming Eye Serum promising me it would reduce my dark circles. Now if you don’t know, when someone says erases dark circles I will buy the product before they get to the end of their sentence. Yes, I am extremely gullible. So here’s a review of these two products. Kaya Skin Awakening Rinse Like I said, you don’t need a morning face wash. This fact was further driven home when I started using this product. It does absolutely nothing. …

Website Review: Koovs.com

You know what happens when you have a million things to do and you get really overwhelmed? Yeah, some people will power through and start ticking things off that list. I, on the other hand, will go shopping. I indulge in retail therapy more than is normal, usual or socially acceptable. Since I give 0 f***s about society’s opinions on my shopping or anything else for that matter I headed over to Koovs. Just so you know, this is not a sponsored post. If it was, I would be shopping for much, much more. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about the website. So, the interface is just about okay. Nothing too pretty or fancy. I have gone to Koovs before and liked their clothes so much more than the Jabongs and Myntras of the world. So yeah, also there was a sale and the clothes are going for really low, peeps, I mean, it’s a steal. I got 3 tops for Rs.800 *collects your jaw from floor, attaches it back to …

Hair Service Review: Nalini’s of Nalini and Yasmin, Bandra

About 10 years ago, when hairstyling wasn’t exactly cool Nalini and Yasmin were the rockstars of the hair world. A lot of time was spent trying to get an appointment at this Bandra salon and the cool people there- the ones with weird hair and nose piercings (that’s how we knew they were cool back then)- were spotted milling about here. For me, at that time, it was the epitome of coolness. Since then, I got a nose piercing but I am nowhere close to cool so, yeah. When a friend, Neha Doshi, recently asked me where she should go to get her hair trimmed I suggested going to this old school favourite. Now, it’s called Nalini’s. I don’t know why? What happened to Yasmin? Are they still friends? Is there something sinister here? And it is because I do this that I am being kept away from detective novels. Anyway, so Neha booked an appointment and the both of made our way to this place which is exactly where N&Y used to be. Except …
