AGESmart Facial

I was invited to try out their AGESmart facial but since this caters to mature skin I took my mom to try it out. The facial was done in a separate room where my mom was first given a robe to change into. Her hair was nicely tied back and she was asked to relax as the facial began. A number of products were used beginning with a facial cleanup. This was followed by a scrub, facial massage and finally the face pack. This whole procedure took around 60 minutes. After the facial my mom looked very relaxed and she was quite happy with the service.

TBC by Nature - Frosted White Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub - Review, Swatches

Summers are a time we cherish for the long hours in the pool, for the cool lollies we relish and for the mango shakes that make the day worth living. But, summers are also synonymous with skin concerns like tanning, damage to skin cells from dust and pollution, and oil clogged pores from all the sweating if you are headed out!

Exfoliation is very important in summers to remove all the dead skin cells so that you always look your best. Attempting to answer our summer skin concerns TBC has launched a new Signature Series of products. I tried out their Frosted White Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub that claims to remove impurities from your skin instantly.

Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub comes in a tube form with a flip cap. It is an alcohol free product. The term 'magic' is used because the scrub is actually in a gel form that visibly rolls over your skin to life off dead skin cells as you massage it onto your skin.

The main ingredients of Pineapple, Keratinase, and Pomegranate help replenish the skin. They help peel the dead skin layer to reveal a fresher complexion without causing any irritation or drying of the skin. The gel lifts of dirt and impurities to decongest clogged pores.

You Can Never Have Enough Shoes - My Blue Sandals!

"A woman with good shoes is never ugly" - Coco Chanel

"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world" - Marilyn Monroe

When you read such quotes on shoes and smile, you know you are a shoe-aholic! I surely am one. I love shoes and even though my style is conservative, I love stocking on heels, flats, peep toes, sneakers, slippers and the lot. Recently on a visit to the Reliance Footprint store (the only store near my place which stocks a variety of brands) I purchased one more pair (there is always room for one more - right?)

My Blue Sandals

This time I've picked up a pair of sandals in blue. I was longing for a blue pair of shoes for quite some time but the blues were either too pale, too bright or too dull. This pair meets a few needs that make them perfect for my daily work wear. I found a rich blue tone in a pair that gives me comfort and will go with my jeans as well as skirts.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ Review

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ is someting I've been using since December last year. I am almost finished with my tube and that is the reason behind my review. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ Review
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ Review

If you are a regular reader of the blog you know my acne voes and how moisturizers and face creams seldom get acceptance by my skin. But this one is a sure winner and I'm super glad it worked!

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ is a multipurpose face cream - it helps unclog pores, works as an anti-imperfection cream, and gives your skin hydration without causing stickiness or greasiness. The cream comes in a tube form with a slim nozzle head. It has a screw top cap and is hence easy to carry around.

Price: Rs 1350 for 40ml [buy online La Roche Posay]

The cream is on the costlier side but one tube has lasted me almost 3 months of usage and I still have some left. I've used it regularly every morning and mostly at night too.

Read on to know if it's worth your money!

Book Review: Open Eyed Meditations by Shubha Vilas

Meditation is said to calm you down, clear your mind and help you stay happy inside out. There are many saints who guide you towards that state of calm. There are umpteen apps out there to help you meditate too.

I have tried to meditate to accept things life offers that my psyche just simply cannot accept and digest. Instead of hurting myself through suppressed anger I have tried different means of meditation but have not been successful.

And then the title of a book really caught my attention - Open Eyed Mediations by Shubha Vilas

Open Eyed Meditation by Shubha Vilas
Open Eyed Meditation by Shubha Vilas

Now I always heard that for a successful meditation one must sit in a proper poster, close there eyes, focus on their breathing or listen or chant certain words. Someone suggesting that meditation could be possible with open eyes was intriguing.
