Freeman- Pomegranate Body Sugar Scrub

Ever since i saw this on Urban Touch, i Knew that i had to get my hands on it. I got all excited looking at the juicy red package and have been dreaming of this juicy red yummy looking scrub coming out of the tube. Well, got my package today, and it wasn't red on the inside. Just a clear white gel with itsy bitsy sugar particles on it. So much for my stupid dreams :P But!!! I'm loving this stuff.

What the product describes in its packaging;
Made with natural botanical ingredients, Freeman Feeling beautiful is a full range of skin and body care products to help you feel and look your best.
This sugar based body scrub, enhanced with Pomegranate Extract, exfoliates your skin promoting an all over healthy glow.

Price: 220
Qty:150 ml
Pretty Reasonable right. And it has a shelf life of 3 yrs. Dates are all mentioned on the package.

I've always been using home made scrubs or my St Ives apricot scrub. So buying this was a nice change and what can i say, the smell is intoxicating and i'm loving it. I don't know how to describe the smell. But its fruity i guess, smells yummy, would make you wanna eat it- at least it made me want to eat it :P and the scent lingers for a long long time. If you're not a fan of strong highly perfumed products- then this is not meant for you.

The main exfoliant is sugar in this scrub, the granules are neither coarse nor too fine. They are ideal for the body. You gotta move quickly since the sugar dissolves.

The consistency  is nice and thick and doesn't leave your body greasy or sticky after use.

I think this  is quite a keeper. I'm definitely going to buy this again and wouldn't have to think twice since its dirt cheap for what its worth but only after i try the other scrubs in this range.

Lip Exfoliation-DIY

We all exfoliate our face and body, But what about our lips?? We need to exfoliate our lips once in a while when they get chapped or  discolored. There are many reason for this Smoking being one, then the winters, excess of caffeine , exposure to the sun and so on.

So, this is a simple homemade exfoliator, its not harsh. Since it contains:
1. Sugar- Its a natural abrasive and gets rid of dead cells easily
2.Honey: hydrates your lips well
3.Olive oil: moisturizes

You will need ( even this content makes extra. use less of every ingredient.)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
  • 3/4th tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp olive oil
  • Clean spoon or spatula
  • a small glass bowl
Mix all of this well. Its going to get all thick and sticky :P  Rub on your lips with circular movement for a minute or two and wipe off with a cloth soaked in water or with your palm filled with water.

Happy Scrubbing :P

Sephora Colorful Palette- Guimauve 11

I thought i'd do a review of one of my favorite eye shadow Palettes. I got it as a gift from my aunt last year. Im guessing this was a limited edition, i did check online they dont have this anymore, ebay has a few left and are priced at 25$
Guimauve is perfect for highlighting eyes, It works well as a base shadow. There is a combination of glittery and shimmery shadows in this kit. And one thing i like most, the colour is iridescent , varies in colour when seen in different angles or different  light. Although you have to apply a generous amount for these to show up.
The colours in this palette are a light green with green glitter, an iredescent pale blue, an iredescent gold shimmer and a light pearl pink shimmer.
Taken in Different Lights.

A few swatches starting from my lil finger gold, pink, blue and green

I took this last pic off the net. I liked the way the colours were displayed  on it. Never looked so bright on my eyes though.
