As I travel pretty often, It gets a little difficult for me to keep my skin healthy. Here are few of my Must-Buys from the Body Shop that I like to use to prep my skin for travel and some travel essentials that I like to take with me on the trip.
1) Himalayan Charcoal Purifying glow Mask- For oily skin girls like myself, a good clay mask is a must. This one by The Body shop is not only cooling, soothing and leaves skin refreshing. It works on pores and evens out skin tone!
2) Shea Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub- Honestly! I love this bad boy. It removes tanning, evens out skin tone and adds a lot of moisture. The full review is coming up soon.
3) The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel- I have been using The Body Shop Shower Gels for long and Mongra one is my favourite. This time I decided to try something new so went for the Olive one, will keep you posted on how I like it.
4) Drops of Light Pure Clarifying Foam Wash- As my skin is very sensitive, I make sure to use products that protect against sun spots and freckles. This one does exactly the same so thought of giving it a shot.
5) British Rose Petal-Soft Hand Cream- I can't live without a good hand cream and this one is just pure love. It is extremely moisturising, non-greasy and smells divine, I think I need a full size.
Some of these products like Body Scrub help me prepare for the trip and rest I like to take along to keep my face pimple and freckle-free and my hands soft at all times and in all climates!
I'm s first months of the year and also the first fab bag of 2018. So January bag is a cream color shimmy Fab Bag with the theme The Beauty Blowout.
Let's see what all January Fab Bag has in store for us:
1. Nirvaana Handmade Soap- First product from this months bag is this Hand made, pure goat milk and honey soap. The soap looks like fresh orange juice squeezed and turned into a bar and smells divine as well. Nirvaana Handmade Soap costs 200 INR.
2. VedantikA Herbals Rose Sandal Face Wash- Second product us this herbal face cleanser with rose oil and sandal oil. Never heard of this brand but I love the fact that the product literally is made of just 4 ingredients and has no artificial fragrance. VedantikA Herbals Rose Sandal Face Wash costs 150 INR for 50ml.
3. Maana Glow Illuminator- Next we have this highlighter which one can mix in base or just apply on top. Not heard of third brand as well but excited to try out an Indian brand's take on skin Illuminators. Also as its super expensive, I would like to see what is so special about it! Maana Glow Illuminator costs 2299 INR.
4. Vert Ready to use Wax Strips- For all the girls who are on the go, The Fab Bag hooked us up with this pack of ready to use waxing strips.
5. Acnes Purifying Clarifying Face wash- There are two little satches of this oil control face wash by Acnes.
This is all from January 2018 Fab Bag. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of the product selection. There are no known brands. The only products that excite me that too just because it's expensive and I want to see why is Maana Glow Illuminator. The Fab Bag team generally does a very good job of putting together a variety of products from different brands.
But If Illuminators are your thing, then you might love the bag!
Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo Review - YouTube
I love me some highlighter but honestly, all I like is American and Korean blushes and highlighters. Most of the drugstore highlighters have super chunker glitter that looks very shimmery on the face but then we need to get highlighter on fleek. I just got Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo and Dang! the youthful glowing skin that it gives is just spectacular.
Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo costs 699 INR and come in two different Shade combos:
1) Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo in 24K Glam which has a Pure gold and a Warm Gold Color. 2) Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo in Glitterati which has a Rose Gold and Blonde Gold.
The product come in a square pallet with two generously sized pigment pans.The packaging is sturdy and I really appreciate the magnetic closer. All 4 colors have a different undertone and a very smooth texture. The highlighters being very finely milled blends into the skin seamlessly giving this natural, youthful glow.
I used all the 4 colors to highlight different places on my face and have to that every color has own charm and different level of shine. I love using rose gold in the eye area to highlight tear duct area, Blond gold under the eye, warm gold on the cheekbone and like to add pure gold on top for that extra glow for parties and night events.
Pros: 1) High quality, finely milled powders are easy to use and look seamless. 2) Can be used as both highlighter and eyeshadow. 3) The palette is made keeping in mind the Indian skin tones and suits everyone! 4) Blends effortlessly 5) Extremely soft on the skin 6) this highlighter stays put for 4-5 hours. 7) It gives this luminous sheen that gives this perfect glow. 8) Packaging is sturdy and travel-friendly. 9) It's - Non-comedogenic, D5 free Silicon free, Parabens Free, Mineral Oil free, Nano-ingredients, Cruelty-Free/Not tested on animal. 10) There is no fallout.
Cons: 1) One can easily go overboard with these and it might look like a shimmering mess. 2) I wish all 4 colors come in separate packs so that we can make our own highlighter duo.
At the whole, I really like Nykaa Glow Getter! Highlighter Duo's , these are most affordable highlighters can do it all. Using it sparingly can give a subtle natural glow and layering them can give that highlighter on fleek look. I would totally suggest giving them a shot!
Nykka just launched 12 new essential oils which are natural, vegan, cruelty and paraben free. Each oil costs 350 INR except Rose which is 550 INR and Geranium which us 450 INR. The Nykaa essential oil range consists of Oils Orange, Lemon, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Basil, Rose, Geranium, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Bergamot and Turmeric oil. The oils come safely packed in blue dropper bottle and leaflet with usage instructions.
These essential oils can be blended to create different moods/benefits. Additionally, they can be used for numerous hair and skin benefits. These oils should not be used directly on skin and are for external use only.
My favourite two of the bunch are:
Eucalyptus Essential oil - With its minty woody fragrance, this oil is not only a well known anti-septic but it also a helps get rid of blemishes. I like to mix 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil with 3 drops if water and apply it with cotton on all my blemishes to get clear skin.
Lemon Essential Oil- Lemon essential oil smells very fresh and citrusy and hence is extremely rejuvenating. Just add a few drops of lemon oil to diffuser and it will help to detoxify and in relieving stress.
Check out nykaa.com for full range and do let me know which one do you like the most!

I paired my pastel peach eye makeup with glowing healthy skin and peach pink lips. This is a perfect day glam look suitable for any occasion.
Check out how I achieved this glowing, simple yet glam makeup look.

If you are scared of a bold makeup look but still want to try colorful makeup, then this is a perfect way to experiment with pastel colored eyeshadows.
So our third and last day in Kufri was surprisingly warm. We ate our yummy gobi paranthas on our balcony with the view and then headed to the rooftop in search of a little trek that we never found. Later went to Shimla mall road to just have a look. and guess what!! we ended up spending the entire day shopping and eating. Wake & Back was not a good experience but shopping sure was fun. Will be posting a haul soon.

Next day we had to say goodbuy to Kufri but definitely had our breakfast with a view before leaving.
Continuing my story, so day two we woke up to a beautiful view and decided to enjoy the breeze while we ate our breakfast. After stuffing our faces with nommy-nommy paranthas we were taken to Chail by car arranged by Royal Tulip Kufri team. The drive was just BEAUTIFUL!
After strolling through the palace, we drove back and on the way back ate the most yummiest maggie. Later went to the Spa at Royal Tulip to relax ourselves. Ended the day with some Himalayan food, watched movies and called it a night .
