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

Posted in skincare with tags , , , on April 4, 2009 by LPB

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.

Gun & roses(summer)

Posted in makeup with tags , , on March 9, 2009 by LPB

I like the idea of coupling metalic eyes  with bright lips, like gold with pink.


It’s girly with a twist; I like contrasting finishes; if my shadows are glittery, i like my lips matte, i will wear opaque shadows if i am going to saturate my lips with gloss.

Yes, you can have too much shine/sparkle, no matter how young you are!

Aromatic + Repairing + Rejuvenating + …….


This powerhouse overnight treatment is packed with Vitamin A, VCIP Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lipobrite® HCA-4, Coenzyme Q10, Renovage™, Dermaxyl™ OligopeptideAlpha Lipoic AcidAbyssinian Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Melon Oil, Baobab Oil, Jojoba, Jasmine and Rose.

The intoxicating fragrance of jasmine, frangipani, rose & tuberose  makes it a sensory bliss before i retreat to my bed.

My skin is firmer, brighter & smoother the next morning. I also use it when i am on night shift; my complexion is less dreadful after a 10 hours shift.

This sensuous serum (oil) is a absolute skin salvage.

Definitely my dessert island must have.

Jo Malone red roses

Posted in fragrance with tags , on October 19, 2008 by LPB

Composed of seven types of roses from around the world, Red Roses is a surprisingly clean, voluptuous scent. With a heart of crushed violet leaves and hints of lemon, it unfolds like a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers.

I like this extremely rosy fragrance, it’s the new school rose scent with a twist, unlike the classical boring rose notes.

Jo Malone white jasmine & mint

Posted in fragrance with tags , , , , on June 5, 2008 by LPB

This is the 2nd JM’s floral cologne i fell head over heels in love with, after orange blossom.

Its notes sound like a perfect cup of relaxing, chilling tea; mint, peppermint, chamomile, bergamot, coriander leaves, with sprinkles of rose & jasmine petals.

I especially love the subtle presence of rose de mai absolut. The jasmine is not overpowering in this formula, while ylang ylang & orange flower retain their freshness with a pinch of honeyed sweetness.

This unique cologne is certainly an elegant piece for everyday wear, and yet seducing enough for intimate occasions.
