Hits & Misses this Month - January 2016

Hello Ladies,

It’s the end of the first month of the year and I have a list of hits and misses this month. The month has been good so far. I celebrated my anniversary with my husband over a short weekend trip to the beach. It was fun and I will share the pictures with you all soon read soon later Mosking

This month’s list you will get to see couple of my winter favorites. Starting from body to hair to face. Just to mention my skin is combination to oily.

Nivea Cocoa Nourish Body Lotion

Nivea Oil in Lotion Cocoa Nourish 

To begin with my favorites as this a winter month, I have listed my favorite moisturizer in the winters in Calcutta. Not that I doubt its efficacy in colder weather. This Nivea body lotion is enriched with the properties of cocoa and coconut oil and is suitable for very dry skin. It hydrates the skin like it was never dry and lifeless. I love it to the core and it’s my go to since the last winters. I highly recommend it to the people staying in North India where the temperature is spine chilling and skin is super dry and lifeless this lotion will emerge victorious. Detailed review will be up in my next post.

L'Oreal Professional Hair Serum

L’Oreal Professional Liss Unlimited Leave in Serum

Speaking of lifeless skin, I have to talk about lifeless hair. Winters can damage hair badly and the hair ends up looking dry, rough and frizzy. I got hold of this amazing serum from L’Oreal Professional range and have used it after every hair wash as a leave in conditioner. It works beautifully on the hair and it appears smooth shiny and full of life. The breakage is taken care of owing to the presence of primrose oil. Its one of the best when it comes to hair care. Over the couple of months of usage my hair has thanked me for using this Air kiss

Za Face Mist

Za Total Hydration Energy Mist

No matter how well I moisturize the face in the winters, the BB cream or foundation sometimes appears blotchy on the face. I wanted something to settle everything on the face and make it appear one with the skin. I came across this Za face mist which has helped me a lot to get the glow back and impart that luminous look on the face. Sadly, Za has discontinued in India and I am heartbroken as I couldn’t try much from this range. I will try and get more from this brand when I travel abroad Drinks

Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal

Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate

Winters are all about intensity, the smokey eyes and dark lips. This Kajal from Lakme is a winner as it comes with a self smudger and smudges the Kajal so beautifully to get that quick smoky look without any extra tools. I have been enjoying using this so much lately since last few months and I carry this in my bag and carry it everywhere to transform my day look into a glam evening look anytime.

Sugar Matte as Hell Red Lip Crayon

Sugar Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick Scarlet O’Hara

Valentines are approaching and I have got some real good recommendations for you. The first one will be from my Fab bag. The Sugar lip crayon in the hot red shade called Scarlet O’Hara. Quirky names and super performance is commmon with Sugar cosmetics. I have worn this shade a lot this month and will continue to do in the coming love month.

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Mousse Foundation

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation
