Harmony Time Shower Cream | Nivea

Leave a Comment


This is probably what heaven smells like!

Well hello there Belle Dames! Now last week while I was waiting for a friend to pick me up I decided to spend a little time in the nearby store. Other than Pringles (large :p) & Johnson’s Baby Bath (for my friend’s son) I decided to get Nivea ‘Harmony Time’ Shower Cream as I was running out of my current shower wash. Now I’m a BIG fan of Nivea shower creams ever since I tried Nivea ‘Happy Time’. And those of you who have tried it out know exactly what I’m talking about – its fruity scent of Orange Blossoms & Nurturing Bamboo Milk. J
“Indulge your senses & inspire your mind under the shower…”

I must admit I was a little skeptical about Harmony Time since I thought maybe because Happy Time was so wonderfully sensational, this one might not come up to my expectations. And since I get overly excited to try out new products I wasted no time to step in the shower once I was home.

Ooh la la..

Nivea Harmony Time is part of Nivea Time range from their Extra Skin Care Bath Care range. Harmony Time promises to change your mood under the shower. As you indulge into this rich, moisturizing shower cream your senses feel relaxed.
“Let the delicate scent of White Roses relax your senses…”

The most beautiful part is the truly sensational botanical scent of White Roses that wraps your gently. For softer feeling skin its composition includes HYDRA IQ (active content that stimulates formation of hydration channels which control distribution of water & keep it within skin cells providing constant moisture). This amazingly silky shower cream combined with moisturizing Almond Milk deeply cleanses & caresses your skin & will leave it refreshed, smooth & hydrated. Once you step out of the shower your entire room will have the sweet aura of White Roses (hence you’ll know if your sister’s been using it behind your back :p)

Relax & rejuvenate with every shower!

Most Essential


Hey Gorgeous ladies,

In my posts I have always made a clear point on how important ‘daily’ skin care regime is. One of the basics includes a face wash for your skin type. From Oriflame’s Essential range I really wanted to try out their Essential Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash with Mulberry Extract & Vitamin E for Oily skin as I ran out of my current one.

Essential Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash comes in a 75ml cute tube which has a pink gradient effect on a white background. Texture of the gel wash is medium & has a pearly shine to it. The fragrance is really sweet-smelling & mild. It is not overly foamy & comes off easily. Its a multi-action, soap-free cleansing formula that helps brighten & even out your skin tone. The good thing about it is that it gently removes my makeup especially eye makeup. The ‘best’ thing however is that it removes excess oil without leaving your skin dry afterwards like some face washes. My skin looks clean, refreshed & kind of ‘fair’. *big smile* 

Now a little about Mulberry Extract & Vitamin E. Mulberry & Vitamin E together help reduce skin pigmentation. Mulberry is a common ingredient in many skin care products. Mulberry extract is a ‘skin lightening’ extract from Japan & comes from the skin of a dried out mulberry. Mulberry extract also inhibits melanin production, provides rejuvenation & a healthy glow to your skin. Vitamin E on the other hand is one of the most powerful antioxidant (antioxidant: substance that protects your skin against free radicals) that protects & repairs your skin. Vitamin E help fight early signs of aging especially fine lines & wrinkles leaving it soft, smooth & healthy. (Imp: Elements from the weather such as dry air, wind, ultra violet rays can act as a catalyst in the aging of your skin). 

Essential Fairness 5 in 1 Gel Wash with Mulberry Extract & Vitamin E is a highly recommended gel wash for everyday use if you’re looking for one & no you do not need a fat wallet to purchase it so place your orders with ME right away! :)

Live Luxe | Jennifer Lopez

Leave a Comment

Hi again Sweethearts..

Fall is around the corner as I look out of my window towards a cloudy sky. And it’s been a while I wrote a review on my fragrances. So before its fall I want to make sure I’m out of those last few fruity, summer fragrances. J Today I chose Jennifer Lopez’s Live Luxe

Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe

Jennifer Lopez’s Live Luxe came out in 2006 a year after the original Live which is a spring-time, energetic, fruity floral. My first J Lo perfume was Glow After Dark gift set that came with a really cute evening-date purse. Live Luxe however is a bolder, stronger, fruitier version of the original. The top note is the fruitiest I've ever experienced! Even the florals in the middle notes are vibrant which add to the overly glamorous & glittery appeal. This fragrance is fruity in essence; it’s young, sparkling, sweet & delicious. This is definitely a head turner & wants you to be the center of attention! The only con I see is that it may be overpowering for some ladies.

I luv the box which is very shiny & covered with glitter, kind of gives you a hint of what’s inside. J Equally glamorous is the bottle inside with its reflective design, red cap & Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe written around the rim of the bottle. It has more vibrant, brighter colors as compared to the original Live. Turn it every 60 degrees & you see a new color!

Yellow Topaz
Midnight Blue
Red Ruby

Live Luxe is like Miami in a bottle – you can’t smell it without thinking of summers & sand, white beaches & long nights. If you’re into fruity fragrances on the bolder side this one is definitely for you. Drop by to check it out as I carry it with me all the time. ;)

Top Notes: Juicy Pear & Peach
Middle Notes: Amethystfreesia, Muguet Petals
Base Notes: Diamond Musk, Soft Amber

Good Morning Honey :)

1 comment

This post is inspired by 2 things: 

- My first cup of coffee at work every morning.
Coffee a magical substance that turns "leave me alone or die" into, "good morning honey!" - Aunty Acid

I am a big time tea lover but I started having coffee ever since the tea made at my work place didn't taste so good. Off course it was being made in the microwave & not on the stove like at home. Tea has to be cooked properly, there's a recipe that has to be followed, it takes time for the essence to really show up to make it taste good. That doesn't happen when you make it in a microwave hence coffee. Instead of writing a paragraph on coffee  let me share some interesting facts that I read over the internet lately. 
Morning Coffee
Morning Coffee

Coffee is actually a fruit - it’s a cherry. 

2. Legend has it that coffee was accidentally discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder when he discovered how crazy the beans were making his goats. And yes - he gave it a try too lol!

3. Coffee is a proactive (proactive: affecting the mind or the mental processes) & at high doses it can make you 'see' things.

4. Lethal dose of caffeine is approx. 100 cups of coffee. (Now don't try this okay!) 

5. The world record for most coffee consumption is 82 cups in 7 hours! 

6. North Europeans are the biggest coffee drinkers - Denmark, Norway & Sweden lead the pack. 

7. At first in Europe coffee was known as Arabic Wine.

8. 91% of coffee consumed is taken at breakfast, & sometimes 'is' breakfast.   

9. The second place where coffee is most consumed is in the workplace. 

10. Coffee is only grown near the Equator from the Tropic of Cancer to Tropic of Capricorn within a 1,000 mile limit. 

11. A coffee drinker averages 2-3 cups of coffee a day. 

12. Only 35% of coffee drinkers drink their coffee black. 

13. It takes 40 coffee beans to make a cup of coffee

14. Ludwig Van Beethoven, the great German composer & pianist was a big fan of coffee & it was rumored that he was very specific about his brew. Before every cup, he counted exactly 60 coffee beans a cup!

15. Coffee has been around for over 11 centuries & is currently the most widely consumed beverage in the world. 

Godetevi il vostro caffè innamorati!
