Crabtree and Evelyn “Rosewater” Frangranced Candle

Hey y’all,

Do you also have one of those days when you just want to pass some time by entering a mall and then you are blown away after entering one shop that you think you were just stupid to think you won’t be spending anything that day?

Well, I very recently had one such days. Here’s one of the beautiful things to come outta it.

I am of course talking about the awesome Crabtree and Evelyn products and in particular in this post, their Fragranced Candle in “Rosewater“. Beware, this will be my first luxury Perfumed Candle.

EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm with SPF 15 in “LEMON DROPS” – Review

Ever since I discovered EOS lip balms I have not looked back. My lips are dry almost throughout the year which needs some extra protection. Honestly I have tried many lip balms from Avon which was my staple during college time (I still use them), Maybelline baby lips (another favorite of mine), Brut Bees lips balms but this little eggie is something extra.

What EOS Claims: 

Eos lip balm in SPF 15 Lemon Drop is packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E and natural conditioning oils to keep your lips moist and soft while protecting them from the sun.

Hello y’all! Let’s talk about the newest kid on the Kajal-land block here in India, the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique.
