Strawberry Mini Body Butter | The Body Shop

Hi lovelies,

Love is sweet so are strawberries. In ancient Rome, these red heart-shaped strawberries were considered a symbol of Venus, the goddess of Love and Beauty. We still continue to make strawberries a mainstay for romantic occasions like Valentine's Day, for symbolic reasons. While there are several ways to serve strawberries to set that romantic mood I thought I'd give you an extra tip. Since the Strawberry Body Butter from The Body Shop smells like real strawberries give your skin extra pampering by smoothing this all over your skin before you apply anything else. So while indulging into a bowl of strawberries today, I thought I'd share my views on how this sweet smelling and smooth Strawberry Body Butter from The Body Shop is.

Strawberry range from The Body Shop is divine and my second favorite after Moringa. Enriched with real strawberry seed oil this range is an aromatic bunch! It comes in a tub of 200ml (mine's a 50ml tub that was purchased in London probably around Christmas). I have always appreciated plastic tub as they are more convenient to store and take around with you due to it's light weight. All The Body Shop body butters have their respective key ingredient picture pasted on the top lid, so has this one. I cannot begin to explain how much I love applying it on my hands and praising the strawberry fragrance. Now I understand why all The Body Shop body butters have specifically 'unfit for consumption' mentioned at the back of their packaging. Anyone using these products would want to taste these for sure. (Don't ever try to taste Chocomania, it tastes so bitter!) All these are no doubt so 'delicious'.

Coming back to the Strawberry Body Butter, I love the light texture of this one. While I was shooting photos for this post the strawberry nicely fitted in the tub due to the texture. Open the tub and it smell like a strawberry bucket. Since my skin has dried up dramatically I tried using a little amount on my face (not recommended) as well which I mostly do not to avoid breakouts. Till now it hasn't given me any breakouts so that's another plus for me.

Did I mention that Strawberry Body Butter is one of the bestsellers of The Body Shop? It's created with cold-pressed strawberry seed oil which gives it an amazing aroma and hence the best seller. If you have used many The Body Shop body butters this one will without doubt become your favorite too. I love how it quickly absorbed without a greasy feeling. If you plan to step out, finish off with
Strawberry Body Mist (£ 7.50). Strawberry Body Butter and its entire range is a perfect Valentine's Day and Mother's Day gift so note it down. If you end up purchasing it or have already used it do leave below your thoughts. You can also comment on my Facebook fan page and follow me there.

Will I repurchase it? Definitely!

Amplify Your Look with Glamour Serum Drops | Toni&Guy

6 comments

Happy weekend!

Time for me to beat the annoying fuzz once in for all! Though I religiously use hair serums to finish off my styling but I never give up on trying new products in this department - handling frizzy hair and fly aways. After using and absolutely loving Dove Hair Fall Rescue Serum I came across my long loved brand when it comes to hair care - Toni&Guy. In the past I have used their hair serums and loved the way it made my hair looked so glossy and beautiful.

Toni&Guy is a well know and trusted haircare brand. When I came across their Glamour Collection a while back I knew I had to give it a try again. While I shampoo my hair and apply conditioner regularly I prefer using hair serum to tame any hair that may give an illusion of dry hay sticks. I picked Toni&Guy Serum Drops to do the job. First off, I love the packaging and the glass bottle. It has a touch of glamour and looks rich. It comes with a pump which really helps you control the amount of product you want to use. This magical glass bottle looks almost clear and comes in 30ml. The bottle is small enough to fit in your handbag and would accompany you on the go. The glass bottle might add a bit of weight to you shoulders but you can choose to take it along with you on special occasions. Moreover it will last forever, trust me. With my kind of regular usage it lasts almost 3 months! The scent is very soft and pleasant. It makes your hair smell so ..umm romantic. The kind of smell you'd love for dinners and special occasions. It almost smells like vanilla (you agree?).

I usually work 2 - 3 drops of this serum between palms and smooth through mid lengths and specially ends of dry, blow dried hair. Though it's meant to be used on dry hair I use a drop or two while my hair is still damp and reapply after I blow dry or straighten them. The serum glides nicely and sets onto your hair in seconds. It will not leave your hair or hands greasy after application. I love the way this serum seals the ends of my hair making it look healthy. Since I usually wear my hair straight I believe Toni&Guy Serum Drops works best on straight hair. It adds that luster and shine to your hair to make them look healthy and would help calm down those fly aways. My hair feel incredibly soft!

"Concrete Jungle" Nails | Clinique

8 comments


Hi Lovelies,

Spring is around the corner and I'm already looking forward to new shades that take me to a calm, beautiful beach away from the cold weather. I wouldn't want to wear darker shades while the sun starts to show up more often during the day. And you wouldn't want to turn to same old corals that everyone turns to as weather changes. I had been really looking forward all winters to try the four nail polishes from Clinique's A Different Nail Enamel range that I won on Twitter. This range comes in an array of pretty shades.

Out of the four shades, today I picked Clinique's 'Concrete Jungle' nail enamel which is a gorgeous shade of white-grey-cream. It's part of the permanent color collection. The bottle is heavy and stands out on your vanity because of the super shiny cap. First two coats are almost opaque so I applied nice three coats to get the color on. It's also quick drying which is definitely a plus for me. It's long wear that's easy on the eyes meaning it wont irritate your eyes or skin and is perfect for sensitive skin. This super glossy neutral is endlessly versatile and flattering for my hands. If you want to come out of those darker winter colors and need to go subtle with a skin tone shade this is your color.The thing I like most about Clinique's 'Concrete Jungle' is the fact that it looks sophisticated yet doesn't male your skin look pale. It's understated glamour, which you must confess you need from time to time to refresh yourself.

Would you go for such a shade in spring?
