The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter | Review


Hi Lovelies!

Sometimes some things are special to you because of your special moments and stories associated with them. You might love a particular fragrance because you wore it on your first date or a wedding band which is symbolic of your true love and dedication to your spouse. I’m a very lucky girl who owns a lot of special things that bring memories of good times. One of these is The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter – it reminds me of London. The sweet smell of Moringa Body Butter is embedded in my thoughts and memories of my time spent in London. It is one thing I used THE MOST while I was there.

The delicate white floral scent of Moringa Body Butter is so captivating and is the best thing about it. It is as pleasant as a mild, glamorous evening fragrance on cold winter nights. The fragrance is very lively, floral and long lasting, almost reminding you of a walk that you might have taken in a summer garden. When you think of florals most of the time the products you come across are either Rose or Jasmine based scents. If you are not a floral person you might not admire it as much though. However you will find the mild fragrance very different from others. There have been times when I opened the jar just to smell the lovely fragrance. I cannot get enough of Moringa Body Butter, I have re-purchased it and I will again once I’m out of this jar. 
The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter Review

We all already know the amazing texture of The Body Shop Body Butter. This one is no less than amazing. I always prefer body butters in cold winter nights right after I take a long hot bath since my skin is super dry during winters. Moringa Body Butter will melt on my skin when I massage it and leaves my skin feeling not only hydrated but also smooth, super spoiled and pampered. This rich and super creamy body butter is a true feast for the skin especially in winters when your skin needs extra care. I love how the delicate smell stays for hours. I keep it handy all the time. I have transferred some of the product into an old The Body Shop Vitamin E jar and keep it in my handbag to use it as a hand cream all day long!

This amazing jar of body butter comes in a beautiful light yellow jar of 200ml with Moringa flowers imprinted on it. For some using up this huge tub would have been a big task – not for me the way my skin ‘drinks’ it. I more than love this range. Earlier I have been a big fan of Japanese Cherry Blossom and Midnight Bakula ranges but Moringa is so far my most favourite. If you have oily skin it’s definitely not for you. For someone with normal skin it can be used once in a while. However its ideal rich, buttery texture is great for dry skin like mine.
If you haven’t checked it out yet I strongly recommend you do so and get back to me. I would love to know your views.

Revlon ColorSilk Luminista in Light Caramel Brown | Review


Hi lovelies,

A new post in a long time, I have been so preoccupied to relax and write a quality post but I’m back! Today’s post is about a hair color that I recently tried. To start with I am not big on hair colors and I only recently tried a hair dye. This was just out of curiosity to find the right hair color for me in case I wanted to try having a different hair color one day.

Revlon ColorSilk Luminista is the hair color I chose in the shade Light Caramel Brown (no. 165) which is little lighter than what I really wanted. I wanted to try L’Oreal first since it is a better brand comparatively but then changed my mind and went for Revlon.  One reason for this was that I could not find a hair color that I liked in L’Oreal. One reason to choose Revlon ColorSilk Luminista was that this particular line of hair color was formulated specifically for dark hair. My natural hair color is black though it is not the deepest black. Somehow the word ‘Luminista’ was encouraging enough for the purchase since it made me imagine that this product would not just change my hair color to a lighter shade (since that is what it promises), it would also make it super shiny!

The Experience

One word – drastic! (In a good way). I had NO idea how light my hair would turn out to be (which is exactly what Revlon ColorSilk Luminista promises)! I had no clue a hair color could turn my hair so light even though I had some of the hair color from my last attempt still left on my hair. I underestimated the performance I guess. I do not think the photos did justice and captured the real essence of the hair color. Second thing was hair shine. Yes! My hair did look really shiny and healthy. The hair conditioner that came along with the packaging was super good to my hair adding softness and a healthy look. As far as satisfaction with this particular 'hair color' is concerned I was not at all satisfied with the end results. Revlon ColorSilk Luminista did a really good job and delivered. You can see the shade looks neat and fresh, unfortunately it was not the shade I was looking for. I had light brown (end result) in my mind and this was more copper-caramel (maybe because I already had a lighter shade on my hair) so I picked a wrong shade. Nevertheless, if you are somebody like me who has black hair and want to actually see color on your hair Revlon ColorSilk Luminista does a really satisfying job.

Before / After

Will I repurchase this product? Probably not. If you want to go for affordable options Revlon is a good option and I recommend it.  I, however really want to try L'Oreal or Schwarzkopf next time when I consider dying my hair so that I could compare the quality and shade ranges.

Any suggestions on quality hair dyes? I would love your suggestions.
