Kama Ayurveda – Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser

August 26, 2014

Guess I have developed some kind of obsession for rose fragrance. Everywhere I look, it is either Lavender or Rose. While most of the skin care & beauty products have a strong whiff of rose fragrance in them, Kama Ayurveda believes in delivering a more soothing effects otherwise. Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser by Kama Ayurveda is one such product. I have been using this one for over a month now and feel it’s apt for humid-hot monsoon season.  My Experience A very mild cleanser that comes in a convenient pump dispenser bottle. It doesn’t lather much, but that is what vouches for its organic authenticity. Nevertheless, it does clean up your face, removes the makeup and gives a fresh feel to your skin. The fragrance is subtle, giving off a feel good factor. Likes Pump Dispenser Packaging Cleanses as it claims Rose & Jasmine concoction Leaves the skin moisturized Dislikes Runny consistency 2 pumps required for a single usage. How I Use It? Every morning I simply take the cleanser on my finger tips, massage all over my face and wash it off. I follow the cleansing with Kama Ayurveda’s Pure Mogra Water for rejuvenation.  Rating Value for Money : 3.5/5 Quality : 5/5 Quantity : 4.5/5 Results : 5/5 Usage : 1 months approx.

A Zotiqq Jewellery Experience

August 23, 2014

Jewellery can either make or break your style. Accessorize it right and even a pair of basic denims and plain tank will upgrade to a runway-style #OOTD. I am a jewelry junkie. Why I call myself a junkie? Well, because everytime I step out for shopping, no matter what; I always end up adding more jewels to my already flooding jewelry collection. Not to forget all those times when my mom has scolded me for buying some more of the junk I already have. You see, clothes can be worn out, but jewelry stays forever. Don’t remember how many times I have been complimented for wearing a particular jewel rather than a particular apparel! Now that I have made my point, let me introduce you to one such hub of artificial jewels that range between vintage, classic to cocktail styles. Presenting to you Zotiqq.com – the venture by my dear friend and blogger Ritu Rajput of The Indian Beauty Blog. The first time she introduced me to her expansive jewellery collection, I was literally blingstruck! And when she asked me if I would like to feature some of the products on #Kalapalette, it was a straight away yes (tee hee) from me. Combination Rings Set Taking up the midi-rings trend that has been trending since a while now, I had to invest in a few combos from Zotiqq. They are gold, they are classy and they are frigging adjustable. One issue that I have faced earlier with rings is that they can’t be customised for your finger width. But Zotiqq offers that option. Shop it HERE The Disc Man Necklace The next on my list was this vintage coins necklace. I have seen plenty of such coins necklaces with various other labels, but somehow they just don’t fancy me much. But this one stood out from …
