Rainforest Shine Shampoo | The Body Shop

1 comment

Bonjour belles dames..!

It is such a good feeling when a friend suggests you to try something out & when you do that you cherish the moment you took their advice.

A good friend of mine (Kanwal Abad :) ) recently suggested trying out a shampoo that she purchased from The Body Shop. She found it after a painstaking search for a shampoo that could tame her natural ‘Shakira’ hair (as I call them :p), which suffered the usual damage after a hair straightening treatment. She just couldn’t stop praising it every time we met up. This made me a little curious since I had not tried a hair range from The Body Shop. Hence, on my next visit I picked up a shampoo from their range – Rainforest Hair Care.

The Body Shop RAINFOREST SHINE Shampoo for Normal to Dry Hair

The ‘Eco-Conscious Rainforest Hair Care’ is a new range of hair products by The Body Shop for normal, colored, dry, damaged & oily hair. I chose the Rainforest SHINE Shampoo because I wanted to restore the moisture of my hair & improve hair softness without weighing it down. 

The first time I tried it that evening; texture was not too thick, colorless & transparent with a nice natural, mild, fragrance – kind of ‘spicy’. The lather was just the right amount when you massage it on your scalp. As I rinsed I felt an instant softness in my hair. I did not use a conditioner to see how the shampoo works on its own. Once my hair started drying out naturally I couldn’t believe how soft, shiny & tangle free they felt without even using a brush!

The results are out! Super SOFT, brilliant SHINE & SMOOTH texture! 10/10!

But hey! If you thought this was the only reason for me to admire this amazing range, there’s more to add. The ‘Eco-Conscious Hair Care’ contains no silicones (product to make your hair feel silky), parabens or colorants (so that you could see the real color of the formula). It’s an effort to meet The Body Shop’s eco-conscious standards which are:
  • to show respect to the aquatic environment (by carefully choosing non-toxic raw materials), 
  • is biodegradable (a substance is biodegradable if more than 60% of it is broken down into simpler chemicals within 28 days by living organisms) & 
  • the packaging uses recycled plastic (in order to use less virgin plastic).

Moreover, to celebrate the launch of this new Rainforest Hair Care range, The Body Shop also worked with the World Land Trust to secure an area of land in the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest which will form part of a permanent nature reserve. The reserve will help protect thousands of trees threatened by deforestation & 450 wildlife species including the critically endangered wooly spider monkeys, of which there are only 1,300 left in the world.

GOLDEN GODDESS Shimmering Body Lotion by Baby Phat

Leave a Comment

Oh my goodness..!

That awesum moment when something reminds you of your mom. :)

Yes Darling Chéris, I recently had this amazing moment when a dear friend let me keep her (half used :p & did I ask for it too many times Tehmina? :$) body lotion & behold..!!

Baby Phat GOLDEN GODDESS Shimmering Body Lotion by Kimora Lee Simmons!

Baby Phat GOLDEN GODDESS Shimmering Body Lotion by Kimora Lee Simmons

The first thing that absolutely caught my attention about this body lotion (or should I say body cream, texture wise?)  was the amazing fragrance it had. It instantly reminded me of Oil of Ulay which my mom used a lot when I was really young. Though both have really different smells; Oil of Ulay being really mild.

Baby Phat Golden Goddess is an enticing women's fragrance from Kimora Lee Simmons. First introduced in 2006, it features exotic notes of patchouli, night orchid, blue lilies, and even bubbling champagne and caramel. The fragrance is described as:
"The new sparkling, luxurious fragrance that captures the sensuality of a Goddess.."Baby Phat GOLDEN GODDESS Shimmering Body Lotion by Kimora Lee Simmons
This 'shimmering body lotion' comes with a gift set. I'm not too sure if it’s sold separately. Maybe one could find it on Ebay. The texture is pretty thick, creamy & super silky with the finest golden shimmer. The fragrance is mellow yet sexy! It definitely draws attention & makes you feel successful & important – the very apt for its name Golden Goddess.

Apply this 'magic potion' on your arms & a little around the neck to feel instantly luxurious & mesmerized.

Loads of luv & shimmer... <3

"Living In The Now" CK in2u Her

1 comment

Bonjour les belles dames! :)

We all luuuuuuuv gifts especially when they show up at the right time! Yes.. Another spring/summer perfume to my collection is CK in2u Her. Apparently, this was the first 'duo' launched by Calvin Klein instead of unisex fragrances. The trendy pair is intended specifically for young generation. 

CK in2u Her

CK in2u Her speaks to a new generation that is emboldened sexuality & is freed by technology to connect anywhere at any time, the “no commitment” generation. ( ahem! ) 
The bottle is graphic & urban. It’s a contrast between the milk-white glass & pale-gold transparent bottom. The fragrance is fresh & floral with a woody oriental base. 

CK in2u Her

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now. The overall feel is ‘young’, ‘modern’, ‘sexy’ & ‘spontaneous’. I personally feel its fresh enough for the warm summer days yet the warm combination of base notes are sparkling enough for a casual evening out. 

This is definitely one of my recommended summer fragrances!

CK in2u Her

Top Notes: Pink Grapefruit Fizz, Redcurrant Leaves & Sicilian Bergamot
Heart Notes: Burst of Sugar Orchid & White Cactus
Base Notes: Red Cedar, Neon Amber & Vanilla Souffle

Wishing you sweet smelling moments..

White Beauty Pinkish White Glow Lightening Cream | Ponds



Well, we've been talking about summers. Summer sun is beloved ( Okay, not in June :) ) because it provides you with opportunities to spend more time outdoors doing things you love. However, the sun comes with a price & its your 'skin' that pays that price! 

To beat the sun damage, my favorite daytime cream these days is Ponds White Beauty Pinkish White Glow Lightening Cream. 

It comes in a really cute small jar that is easy to carry around in your handbag. According to the product information, it deeply nourishes skin to a radiant pinkish-white glow & evens out skin as well. Its triple sunscreen will keep your skin safe from UV rays. Its potent anti-oxident Lycopene helps prevent darkening of skin. Moreover, the advanced skin lightening complex - Pro Vitamin B3 created by Ponds Institute is rich in nature's own Lycopene which helps dilute accumulated Melanin. 

Apart from using it as day time cream, I also use it as make-up base since it keeps my T-zone oil free for hours. Best part: its so affordable! :)

Try it out & see for yourself, secret behind a glowing pinkish white radiance! 

Lots of love..
