Omved Protective Face Moisturiser - Review

Today's post is about a skincare product I've been loving recently and it is the Omved Protective Face Moisturiser. Omved is not a brand I've explored a lot. Till date, I've tried the Moisturising Face Cleanser and now this moisturizer but I will definitely check out their range because they make some really nice products that are not tested on animals and free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, synthetic colors and all the bad stuff. 

Omved Protective Face Moisturiser is an "emollient that keeps your face supple and moisturised. Use regularly to protect sun-damaged skin and reduce age spots and scars". The ingredients are DM water, avocado oil, almond oil, glycerin, jojoba oil, salicyclic acid, ashwagandha oil, oils of lavender, yland ylang, jasmine, sodium benzoate, glyceryl stearate and cetyl alcohol. The price is Rs 790 for 100 ml.

Black is Beautiful - A wishlist of 5 things black

Navy Blue might be the new black or Orange might be the new black but Black will always be black, the color of mystery, power, beauty and charm. To write a wishlist of five black things I want is a very very tough thing to do considering most of the things I love are in black but will still give it a shot. Here goes my wishlist.

1. Batman's Batmobile - Yes yes I know the character is fictional and so is the car but what a beauty it is! I could practically rule the world if I had that car. Warner Bros, are you listening?

2. Black Roses - I want to have a garden of black roses. I find them so beautiful, mystical and alluring and I've actually asked quite a few flower shops in my city if I could get a plant but no one has them. Can anyone help?

3. Black Diamond - Now this would be the daddy of all rocks! Have seen these only in pictures and been obsessed with getting one for myself. The price tag is a deterrent so I would gladly accept one as a gift :D.

4. Jet Black Hair - I used to have this before I started coloring my hair and working night shifts. Jet black has been replaced with dark brown and quite a few greys and I so want my old hair back! I just want to wake up one day in the morning, look into the mirror and see myself with flowing jet black tresses. Sigh!

5. A Black Stallion - The most handsome animal and I want one. And yes, I love the book Black Beauty :D

I could go on and on but I'm gonna stop only at these five. What are the 5 black things you desire? Do share in the comments below.

For Manish Malhotra's show at India Couture Week 2014, Mickey Contractor went for a minimalist look focusing on luminous skin and a hint of color on the cheeks and lips. For Gaurav Gupta's show, Mickey focused on beautiful and luminous skin, almost bare lips and smokey eyes with black, brown and copper tones for that extra edge.

Memebox Superbox #42 Birthday Box - Unboxing, Photos, Review

Indian beauty and makeup enthusiasts will be eternally grateful to Renu of My Beauty Junction for giving us Memebox. I was unaware of this beauty box that includes skincare and makeup products from Korea till she started raving about them and like a lot of you, even I got curious. I was slightly apprehensive initially because I wasn't sure if the products would reach me safely but Renu assured that they use registered post so I went ahead and placed a couple of orders. The first box was actually a trial run to see if I get it safely and once I did, I've gone slightly crazy. And it is so hard not to! These guys come up with such brilliant themes everyday and they include atleast 5 full size products (no stupid sachets here) which come straight from Korea. 

Memebox Superbox #42 Birthday Box

Today's box is the Memebox Superbox #42 Birthday Box (now sold out) that I ordered about two weeks back. The total value of the products is $98 and I paid $30.99 for the box inclusive of $6.99 shipping which is the rate for standard shipping. These products were inside the box.
