If you are following my daily activities on Snapchat (Add me, Please? Username- sayantinee) then you must know about the gorgeous package I received from Fiama Di Wills a week ago. That box contained one of their precious gemstone shower gels that they launched recently. This Precious Gemstone Bath Collection consists of three of the Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewels, namely, Aquamarine Agleam, Shimmering Diamond and Ravishing Ruby having the properties of the gemstones they are named after. This collection is designed by the very talented and acclaimed designer Masaba Gupta.

There was enough reasons for me to be excited about this collection. Firstly, it is designed by Masaba Gupta who is known for her unique sense of style and iconic designs. Secondly, it is really intriguing for me to use a shower gel that is claimed to be enriched with gemstone dust. A shower gel full of Aquamarine dust? How can one say no to it! Lastly, the packaging! You can’t even imagine how gorgeous it looks in the sun until you have seen it yourself. The box that the showers gels came in is uniquely designed and screams elegance and sophistication. I am totally in love with the packaging.

Before starting with my review and experience, I want to let you know more about the three variants in this Precious Gemstone Bath Collection. Descriptions are sourced from their website.

Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewels Aquamarine Agleam

Clear and tranquil, aquamarine finds a place in history as a catalyst for beauty and youth. It was also considered a good luck charm for sailors and it was believed that the powers of this precious stone were at its peak when submerged in water. This Fiama Di Wills shower gel is enriched with aquamarine dust and skin conditioners, that detoxify skin to give you a youthful radiance.

Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewels Shimmering Diamond

A girl’s best friend. That’s what they call diamonds, and rightfully so. A universally accepted symbol of love, this majestic stone has for centuries been lighting up a woman’s eyes. This Fiama Di Wills shower gel is infused with diamond dust and skin conditioners, that gently exfoliate skin to give you youthful, even-toned skin.

Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewels Ravishing Ruby

A symbol of immortality, ruby for centuries has been believed to have the power to attract health, wealth and success. Derived from the latin word Rubeus, meaning red, this fiery stone now takes a new avatar in this indulgent gemstone infused shower gel. This Fiama Di Wills Shower gel blends ruby dust and skin conditioners, to give you supple, youthful skin.

Price- 399INR

Packaging- Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewels Aquamarine Agleam comes in a bright teal coloured plastic bottle with a flip-open cap that closes tightly and ensures that there is no spillage. The bottle is really sturdy. There is nothing fancy about the bottles, very similar to the regular shower gels by Fiama Di Wills.

My thoughts- The product is quite iridescent blue/teal in colour and the consistency is very nice, exactly like a gel. It’s not runny, so perfect to apply. The gel lathers really well. It has a musky smell which is not very flattering to me. I wish it had a more feminine fragrance. Although the scent does not stay long on me but the freshness and clean feeling last for hours. It cleans the skin really well, leaving it soft, supple and fresh. The thing I most liked about this shower gel is that it does not leave that soapy feeling after shower unlike most of the shower gels.

I really enjoyed my bath time using the Fiama Di Wills Shower Jewel Aquamarine Agleam. I think Fiama Di Wills has done a great job with the formulation and ingredients. It claims to result in a youthful skin. I found out that this shower gel makes my skin really soft, supple and hydrated. It did not dry out my skin, unlike other shower gels. It is like a conditioner for my skin.

Hello all, today I am going to share with you my experience with Gia Bath & Body Works soaps. You must be familiar with the brand name for these soaps have created quite a buzz around, if you haven’t heard about this brand then let me tell you. Gia Bath and Body works is a venture pioneered by Mrs. Gayatri Brown. The soaps she makes are handcrafted and natural, or as they say- “Handcrafted with love”. These soaps are luxurious in terms of their designs, ingredients and effect.  People are raving about it not only because these are somewhat unconventional and out of the box but also because these are perfectly effective for the skin without any kind of side-effect. I would say these are not just soaps, these are arts.
Price: Rs250/– Rs280/-

It is a few months ago when I received a package from Gayatri, packed with three beautiful soaps. The moment I opened the parcel, a whiff blew my mind and my heart away. The aroma that the box contained was out of this world! The parcel contained three of their soaps- Mocha Crème Body Polishing Bar, Charcoal & Cream and Blossom. The three soaps were full of three different magnificent aromas. I am briefly discussing about these soaps-

1. Mocha Crème Body Polishing Bar: This one smells so delicious that you might end up eating it (Not going to lie, I almost did it). I had no idea a soap could smell so yummy. Its aroma is just similar to that of a chocolate cake’s and to some extent it smells like coffee and dark chocolate. Oh, I am confused! It looks like a piece of chocolate pastry with cream on the top and coco powder sprinkled on it. This particular soap is full of scrubbing granules thus it is efficient for cleansing as well as for exfoliating. This soap had made my bath exotic and heavenly. Ingredients such as Shea butter and Cocoa butter help in keeping the skin soft, supple and moisturized even though you are using a soap. I have normal skin and this soap did not cause any trouble to it. I did not experience any dryness or irritation.
Ingredients of Mocha Crème Soap: Liquid Silk, Cocoa Powder, Dark forest coffee grounds, Fresh Cream, Milk, Cocoa Butter, Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Bean Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Distilled water, Fragrance/Essential Oil Blend.

2. Charcoal & Cream: This is another amazing soap from Gia Bath & Body Works. This one smells divine as well. You can definitely feel how natural it is by smelling it. The smell somehow reminded me of the Naked Potion Lotion by Lisa Haydon that I had finished earlier this year and that’s great because I loved it. One thing that you can’t avoid is its stunning design. This surely shows how dedicated the maker is to her work. This is how a handmade, artisan soap should look like. This soap also did not cause any type of irritation to my skin rather it nourished it from within.
Ingredients of Charcoal & Cream Soap: Liquid silk, Fresh Cream, Activated charcoal, Milk, Cocoa butter, Virgin Olive oil, Castor Bean oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Distilled water, Fragrance/Essential oil blend.

3. Blossom: If you are a floral scent lover, then you must get this soap. It smells so fresh, so floral and absolutely non-chemically. The soap looks really exotic with a few colourful specks on it that resembles scattered flower petals. This particular soap has a lot of ingredients (oils and butters) which restore the lost moisture and eliminate any dryness. Again this does not cause any irritation. At least for me, it didn’t.
Ingredients of Blossom Soap: Shea butter, Olive oil, Goats milk, Cocoa butter, Rice bran oil, Coconut oil, Oats cream, Sodium Hydroxide, Colorant, Aqua, Fragrance/Essential oil blend.
In today’s life, everybody is concerned about their skin, specially women. No one takes any chance when it comes to choosing skincare, makeup or bath and body products. In this situation, if a brand provides you the best products which at the same time are vegan, natural and chemical-free then no one can restrain themselves from trying these beauties. The price might be quite high but if you have used it then you would know that these soaps are worth the price. These are handmade, made with high quality handpicked natural ingredients, they look extremely exotic and they last really long. I don’t mind spending for the products that are full of the above mentioned qualities. The regular soaps comes in a great quantity so I make sure to cut them in halves and then use one half at time. I never was a soap-lover, I used to use shower gels and creams but Gia Bath & Body Works has completely changed my idea of soaps. I have ordered a couple of soaps afterwards and loving them. I will review them as soon as I finish them. I wish to order their cupcake soaps and cake soaps next. They also have a range of body butters, skin polishes and shower gels. If you have not tried them, do it now. You can contact Gayatri through their FacebookPage.

Hello girls, finally I am back in action (read blogging). If you’re in my Facbook friend list then you might know what I was going through these days. My dog was ill for two weeks and he left us last Saturday. I was very heart-broken. My dog was my only best friend for last 13 years and you can feel how lonely am I feeling now. Nevertheless, let’s jump into the post or else I’ll start crying again.
As you all know I am very new in this world of Beauty Blogging. I just have found my interest in makeup and beauty. I am following a lot of beauty bloggers across the country and have seen them talking about one monthly beauty subscription box and that is the very famous Vellvette Box (now a bag). I wanted to try it as soon as possible because I have seen numerous tempting products coming in this bag. I subscribed for the October’13 Vellvette Bag.  I was not able to share with you my first Vellvette but I will share a picture of what I got in my first Vellvette Bag at the end of the post.
For those who are wandering about what this Vellvette Bag is, it’s an Indian monthly beauty subscription box which claims to ship you luxury beauty, makeup, skincare, bath and body and perfume samples of recognized brands from all over the world. At the time of registration they ask you to fill in a questionnaire about your preferences. But sadly they forget it during shipping. The one month subscription is worth Rs 499. Visit www.vellvette.com to know more about them.

Let’s get into the post now. This is my second Bag from Vellvette and I am really impressed with the products I got in this bag. The pink bag looks super cute with the black polka dots all over it. I think I am going to use it as a makeup pouch while travelling. This bag contains all the essentials for the wedding season. I got an assortment of makeup, bath and skincare products and one bonus item too. Check out what I got-

List of the Products I Got in the Bag-
1. Flormar Deluxe Shine Gloss Lipstick D-35
2. Votre Pore Shrinking Toner
3. I Love… Coconut and Cream Bubble bath and Shower Gel
4. Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream (Bonus Product)

The Lipstick I got in the box is quite impressive. It has a buttery texture to it and gives a sheer finish. I love the glossiness it gives to my lips. This is a little heavy on my lips, I feel like I’m wearing butter on my lips. It tends to melt a lot so I have to keep it in the fridge all the time. I don’t think I can carry it with me while travelling.
November Vellvette Bag
I gave this product to my mom and she is using it for 2 days. I think it’s a good product as she didn’t complain about it till now. The term ‘Pore Shrinking’ made me very interested in the results. I will be using it on my skin and write a review for you guys soon.
November Vellvette Bag
I am using this shower gel for 2 days and I like it so far. Sometimes I get very disturbed with the strong coconut-y fragrance. I hate, hate, hate the smell. But, unlike other shower gels that I have used earlier, this product doesn’t leave me with a weird soapy feeling even after washing myself.
November Vellvette Bag
I am yet to try this one. However, I don’t like the smell. It smells like the ayurvedic chapped lips and skin healers my grandma used to use. Also, the product is very thick in consistency.

This is a glimpse of what I got in my October Vellvette Bag-

My Note:

Being a new subscriber, honestly I didn’t know what to expect from them. But I was amazed to see the products came in my November Vellvette Bag. It’s pretty satisfactory. Also, they sent me a bonus product as a prize for the renewal of the subscription. So, I am quite happy with them till now. So, this was my experience with November Vellvette Bag. What is yours?

November Vellvette Bag
Thank you all for being with me, supporting me and liking my posts. After this long gap I promise to keep on writing. I have a lot of pending posts that will be published soon. Please keep up with me to read what I have to say. Thanks for being patient and not boycotting me 😛

Hola girls, today I am going to review a shower gel that is the Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage shower gel.

Product: Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage Shower Gel ● with Thermal Salts and White Clay
Price: 135 INR for 250ml
When it comes to choosing body washes, I prefer using the ones from Palmolive. I have used two shower gels from their Aroma range, which are the Absolute Relax and the Morning Tonic. They proved to be very good for my skin. But, a few days ago when I visited the nearby mall, I saw the Mineral Massage Shower Gel for the Thermal Spa range. I thought of giving it a try, and guess what, it’s worth trying.
Packaging: Packaging is good as compared to this price. I’ll give an average grade for it.
My Take:
See the grainy texture!
The shower gel is too good to use. Doesn’t make a hole in your pocket. Smells really good. The consistency is very impressive, doesn’t comes out in huge amount and most importantly one or two dollop is enough to clean your skin. So, it lasts for a long time. I love the colour of it very much, it’s a baby blue kind of soothing colour. The texture is superb, it has grainy particles inside it.
Ingredients:
What I like about it:
  • Nicely fragranced.
  • Pocket friendly.
  • Comes out little by little, which makes it more lucrative.
  • Nice texture, grainy particles tends to exfoliate your skin while cleaning.
  • Makes skin soft and supple for hours after washing.

What I don’t like about it:
  • Nothing at all. I love it.

So, girls, I suggest you to try this once. I am sure you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for reading the review. Rate and comment if you like the post.
