The ultimate party gears for spring; the knuckle brass heel must be the  affordable version of Chanel’s pistol heel.

    Unfortunately, i don’t think this deliciously sounding lip balm delivers what it promises.
    Its buttery texture is not soft and smooth enough, the aroma is so what dull & uninteresting, although  the wear is non occlusive, i find it lacks in softening power.
    Not a great helper if you have ultra dry, cracking lips.

    Aromatherapy Associates’s rose hydrating mask is a sweet, elegantly scented, oil free aqueous gel that can be used to boost skin hydration level.
    It’s cooling & refreshing; upon application, my skin is plumped, smoothed and glowing with radiance. It’s a very versatile face mask that can be rinsed off or left overnight (the way which i prefer).
    The main ingredients are rose water, aloe vera juice & sodium hyaluronate.

Sundari gulkand candle

Posted in fragrance with tags , , on April 17, 2009 by LPB

Gulkand is a traditional Indian recipe. This scent offers a floral base and a suggestion of sweetness. The rose oils are a legend to open the heart and reduce fire creating an atmosphere of balance. The layering of fresh rose petals spun with a bit of honey and sugar mature for a month before adding a splash of milk to create a delectable bouquet.

This intoxicating, sensual candle burns for 45 hours. I uses it at night time to unwind myself.

Renew rose firming eye serum

Need to reduce the look of puffiness?

Want to smooth fine lines around the eyes?

A revitalising eye serum to tighten and invigorate. Protect the skin’s surface with powerful anti-oxidants.

I like this gorgeous smelling eye serum; it’s rather fluid in texture, cool on application, lightly moisturizing, great in diminishing puffiness and smooth the eyes/lids for make up.

The down side is it takes longer to “sink in”, and i haven’t noticed any dark shadow banishing miracle.

Key Ingredients: Damask Rose Water, Frankincense, Neroli, Black Tea, Cranberry, Butcher’s Broom, Arnica.
