I'm sorry it took me so long to post about this but let me now reveal to you how I created the emulsion I showed you in my last post.

Ferns and Moss Serum by @earthwisebeauty is so amazing but what elevates it to the next level is...ALOE VERA! That's right! Swipe left to see how this beautiful oil transforms into a creamy emulsion just by adding plain, pure aloe vera gel.😉 There are days when I crave creams and emulsions and this works so well. 👌

The aloe vera gel I use is from a small business that grows organic spices and herbs in Goa.🌿🌱 Any mixologist experiments that you guys want to share with me? I'm all ears! 😊

My next Winter Skin Saviour is from my favourite skincare brand, Earthwise Beauty. To be honest, every Earthwise Beauty product I have used can be termed a winter skincare saviour but the Ferns and Moss Serum, in particular, works wonders during this season. 
It is a substantial oil and by that I don't mean heavy. In fact, you'd be surprised how fast this absorbs into the skin. Not only does it nourish and heal flaky, rough and undernourished skin typical of winters, but it also takes down any acne or bumps that are just about to surface. Every time I get an annoying bump, I apply this oil half expecting it to not work but it does work...every single time! 
Ferns and Moss Serum has also healed a scar on the side of my nose which resulted after an overzealous extraction; no other skincare product in my experience has achieved such a feat. And what can I say about its scent; anyone who uses Earthwise Beauty knows how the unusual earthy scents can become addictive. The scent of this is mossy and earthy! I know I will forever have this beauty in my stash! 🌱🌿🍂
Okay, now here's a fun experiment I did being the curious mixologist that I am. Can you guess what I have mixed with Ferns and Moss to make this creamy emulsion?

Winters are most welcome here in Mumbai, which otherwise perpetually battles humidity and the harsh sun. But winter skin is definitely not welcome! I have dehydration-prone skin which worsens during the winter season, hence, I'm drawing up a list of Winter Skin Saviours, starting with... The most delectable, nutrient and antioxidant-rich Luna Red Wine Probiotic + Antioxidant Mask by Naturallogic, a genius creation by the sweetest woman ever, Toni. 😚 🍇🍇🍇 You guys, this is DA BOMB when it comes to infusing skin with hydration that lasts. I typically look for hydration in serums and moisturisers but this is the only mask that beats even serums/moisturisers in moisture retention.🙌🏽💦 I have talked about this beauty on my blog in detail, so if you're interested, go have a read.

Starting the weekend early! A chilly winter (by Mumbai standards), watching the waves roll in and the airplanes zoom past incessantly.

Excuse my prolonged absence from Instagram but here's something I used up in my time away from this virtual world. Since I'm typing this on my way to work, I'll keep it short. 😄

Moss buerre celeste: a wonderful and truly unique cleansing balm unlike anything I have tried before. The honey in it exfoliates the skin so well and you're left with grits in your palms. So satisfying! Thank God I have a backup of this which I got from @theboxwalla

Rapha cleansing oil: it took me a year to finally finish this beautiful cleansing oil simply because I find it a bit heavy to use on hot humid days. It's perfect for winter though and I find myself craving it. This oil removes makeup and spf so well. I think I might just repurchase this. 
Mahalo unveil: loved it but considering the price and quantity I might not repurchase. I'm trying to spend a little less on cleansers and more on treatment products. Will miss its beautiful aroma though.

Tata Harper purifying cleanser: I had high hopes from this. It gives a sensorial experience no doubt with its intoxicating aroma of citrus and ginger but it lets down in the cleansing department which beats the purpose. And it's quite expensive too. Will not repurchase.

Vapour beauty aer deo: loved it to bits! Doesn't disappoint on any front be it aroma, performance, ease of use or aesthetic value. Will most likely repurchase.

Ursa major hoppin fresh deo: loved the pepperminty aroma but not so great in performance. Will not repurchase.

Look at all that gilded goodness! 😃

@axiology_beauty has long been on my wishlist for their cleaner than clean ingredient deck and unusual yet irresistible lip colours. After graduating from MAC and Clinique, the next step for me obviously had to be switching to clean lipsticks that are not just good for you but environmentally sustainable too. 🤗

After a lot of research, reviews and online swatches, I finally picked up the lip crayon in Enchant, a gorgeous lilac-purple colour in a base of brown. This has become my everyday lip colour that I wear to work as it shows up as a natural mauvish brown on me. What I also love about it is its longevity. 
Next up is the lipstick in Devotion, a buttery pinky brown colour, which looks more like a high-shine gloss. I wear this when I want the 'my lips but better' look on me. Or I use it on top of any other colour to give it more body and oomph. 
Last but not the least is the lip balm which was added to my order by @alyakaofficial (thank you). This lip balm is the bomb, you guys. It has the perfect mix of butters and oils which nourish your lips thoroughly, never leaving behind a greasy feel. The scent is beautiful too. I love citrus and peppermint scents and the orangey pepperminty scent of this makes me super happy.😀 What are your favourite shades from Axiology? Who's excited for the new shades? Can't wait for the official release. 😊

When you are running low on your favourite serum, and @theboxwalla announces the contents of the December beauty box which features your most-loved serum -- the Carrot-a-day serum by @earthwisebeauty now known as the Resiliency serum -- you call it #skincareserendipity 😃

The Carrot-a-day serum is a staple in my skincare routine as it addresses most of the skincare issues I normally face such as acne, hyperpigmentation, sun exposure and undereye treatment. I apply it first thing in the morning after cleansing and it makes me feel reassured about facing the day ahead. Is that weird? 😄

Anyway, I'm looking forward to experiencing the texture and performance of the Resiliency serum; I can see that its texture is different from that of the Carrot-a-day serum. I hope the intriguing, addictive scent is still the same. 🤞

Oh and in case you are interested in reading my thoughts about the Yasuni Face Balm which is also featured in the December box, head over to my blog (link in bio). Both products are real treats for skincare lovers. I can't wait to receive my box. 😊

#nofilter #nomakeup look!

I always carry a base makeup product with me such as a foundation but never end up using it because I'm always rushing out the door, even on vacation! 😅

This glowy well-hydrated face is the result of great skincare featuring @earthwisebeauty, @bonorganics, @kamaayurveda, a simple but pure aloe vera gel from Tropical Spice Plantation in Goa, and a new-to-me skincare brand, which I'll talk about soon. This brand is the bomb! 💣

Great skin does not happen overnight; like most good things in life, one has to be consistent with it. 😌☺️ Photo credit: @alokshirodkar

I've been intrigued by this makeup remover by @kamaayurveda so picked it up at their store at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon. First impressions... It's 👌... it doesn't leave the skin greasy after use and does not irritate the eyes either. A win in my books!
.
I will review it in detail soon, especially to see if any of the ingredients congest my skin. I personally avoid products with Shea butter but I'm willing to give this a chance. 😌 Have any of you used this makeup remover? What are some of your favorite makeup removers? would love some recommendations. 😊
