Top 5 Beauty & Skincare Favorites

I am super stoked to be sitting down here and writing this blog. There were a lot of products and things I tried out in 2016 and today I am going to do a quick roundup of everything that I have been enjoying throughout the year. I never thought I would go through one year remembering what I actually did enjoy & like. But I guess consciously or subconsciously it was in the back of my head and so here we are. So let’s hop right in!


All Good Scents Love And Joy Perfume : I placed order for the full bottle after getting a trial from Smytten and I have been wearing it the most this year. I have never been a fan of floral scents, but this perfume is just another level. The amazing fruity, flowery and fresh fragrance is so distinctive that you just can’t resist it. It’s at that perfect level where you wouldn’t be able to ignore it but it would still not be overpowering. And the bottle still looks cute!


ColorBar : From the eyeliner and mascara to the liquid lipsticks, I love all these products. The liner has super good precision, the kajal and mascara are both jet black and super long lasting. The liquid lipsticks have a great, long lasting coverage and I am very happy with everything I have tried.



The Body Shop : Ok, I know everybody knows but I can’t say enough about the TBS products. I just love everything I try out from this brand. The Seaweed Clarifying Toner, the Oils of Life Facial Oil, Vitamin E Lip Balm, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet; I have tried all these products all through the year in different seasons and they always always work.



Oxy Deep Face Wash with Activated Charcoal : I have said it before and I will say it again, I loooove this face wash. This one cleanses the face from all the dust, dirt, oil, sebum and leaves it fresh and bright like new. It is enriched in menthol so it also leaves a cooling sensation. It is designed for men but I adore this product and anyone with Oily Skin must give it a go.

BBlunt Dry Shampoo : The only product I have tried from BBlunt is this Dry Shampoo and it has literally saved my day many a times. Running late for office or shoot or a party and have no time for a head wash, this is a genuine savior!! I haven’t tried very many Dry Shampoo’s to say its the best out there but I can safely say that it won’t disappoint you. It smells good, leaves no white cast on the scalp and doesn’t make your scalp itchy.

And that’s my top 5 List. I would also like to add that if you are in the market for any new product, I would recommend trying out sample size or travel size versions before actually buying the full size wherever possible. That way you can actually be sure of whether some brands work for you or not and get the value for your money. See you soon…
