Another lovely mask – Pur Myso

Pur Myso Silk MaskHow lovely is the design on this? I think it smells even better. Just a light floral scent… not too much, not gone too soon either. It’s a very lotion laden hydrating moist tissue mask and feels cool on skin.

Pur Myso is made by a company called Sericare. It’s marketed as an anti-ageing type. Here’s a pic of the ingredients!

The quality of the cloth is really nice.  I don’t have anything bad to say about this. Except maybe, I wish it was available more easily and I hope they make more variations of this in future.

Available at The Skin Store

Priced at 100 INR per sheet.

April Favorites

boxy town favoritesmacarons in PuneOkay, in Pune, if you want to eat macarons you have to make them and they are not easy to make if you don’t have the proper appliances. Someday I will make them again but until then, it’s La Bouchee d’Or  -this french patisserie that has made me very happy last month.

the neighbours tv show

You move out to a new house and find out your neighbors are aliens. This show is hilarious and underrated. Kind of reminds me of the Adams Family show. My favorite episode was the Indian wedding…it had me rolling on the floor. Literally! I love the cast… It makes me sad ABC cancelled the show after two seasons.. Argh!

boxy town favorites mangajoMangaJo is the to me, the perfect summer drink and I feel like these have been my favorites as far as I have known them. Love the glass bottles and they have an amazing selection of flavors. I can’t have a favorite flavor, they are all so good! Guys if you have not tried these yet, you are really missing out. Specially if you worry about preservatives and sugar.. They have no nasty ingredients in them and are low on calories.

Force vector mask

L’Oreal Professional Force vector Mask is amazing for thinning/easily breaking/fine hair. It’s moisturizing but not as heavy as the Absolut Repair mask (one in yellow packaging). For any other hair concerns, this mask is probably just meh. It doesn’t look or smell anything special but a combination of this with the force vector leave-in conditioner work really well. As much as I love trying out new products, I am always going to have this one on my shelf..or as long as I have fine hair. I must mention that I skip conditioner cos frankly, don’t see the point of it. This mask is my conditioner and I use the layering method to condition. Which is where you condition your hair, from ear down before and after your shampoo. It might sound a bit much but it’s a life-saving trick for someone whose hair breaks easily. Conditioning first won’t dry out ends, then shampoo as usual massaging just the scalp, wash and squeeze out as much water as possible, condition, wash out.

February Favorites

Februaryfavorites2014

February for me was a stressful month. So every now and then, I found myself reaching for calming products or happy little things to do.

Succulents are a cute little way to prep up a corner, don’t you think? And even just walking around the plant nursery was so relaxing. I picked up this one to keep on my desk.

Zara roll-on perfume is such a lovely little pick-me-up. It doesn’t have great staying power which I think is perfect for work or a train-ride.

Any.do helped me focus. It’s a task-noting app. If you are one of those people who have a million things to do but don’t get them done on time, I believe this app will help.

Click the picture for a link to it. I love how simple it is to look at, use and it has voice detection! It works so good as a widget on my android phone (can’t tell if it works the same way on iOS). Notice the green dollar sign on the right-side of “organize bills” ..it will suggest you app to help with that particular task. Pretty cool!

Lena Dunham’s “The Cover Girl” dance. Have you guys watched this? It’s Vogue’s reenactment of a dance Lena did in the TV series “Girls”. It’s just beautiful. Click the picture for link.

FX Moroccan Moisture – Argan Oil

arganoil

This Oil has been on my shelf for over two years. I think it’s time to throw it out now. This was a disappointing product. It smells like cheap perfume..sickly one at that.

If I knew how to read ingredients better back then, I wouldn’t buy it. Take a look.

moroccan argan oil ingrdients

Cyclopentasiloxane is silicone in liquid form. Dimethicone is Silicon Oil. Ingredients are always written in their decreasing order. I am not against silicon, but the products claims to be Argan Oil. If you look at the last few ingredients, they have added color. I don’t know what’s the point of that? And the Parfum.

It’s on the same level as Livon or other silicon based hair de-frizzers but more pricey. It does help weigh down hair. Noticeably so, but so does any other similar ones out there. I think save your buck with this one! I’ll leave you with this silly picture. Have a good day!

Visit to a Plant Nursery

Plants in bunches look so nice. I have a row of space I can put them in, parallel to the front door. That would make a lovely house entry-way. So I went to a plant nursery yesterday and the choices! I just want to pick up everything. But managed to final down four I love. Help me decide the final one.
