This was launched 2 weeks back in Qatar. Before I left for my maternity I was informed by the SA that it will be available by second week of January. So I asked my hubby to check the BB counter to see if it’s up or not. As he was around that area at that time he went to the counter and luckily it was there. Thanks to him I have my first set of Bobbi brown brush.

 I have always wanted to buy Bobbi brown brushes, but looking at the price I used to keep pushing it away. This one is a good deal. Its quiet handy and since you have one from every category its quiet handy for a short getaway, when you want to carry only minimal things.

I am not sure if it’s still available in Qatar. I picked up mine from Bobbi brown counter at 4U Perfumery in city center.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File Review!! Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File Review!!

Hi all,

Hope you had an amazing weekend. Mine was same usual routine sleeping and running behind my 2 year old.

In between this busy and tiring schedule I have been trying out one of this product I came across online. Its Scholl velvet smooth electronic foot file. Initially when I saw this product at the store I ignored it. A week later another friend of mine too was looking out for the same and I decided to give it a try.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot file

This one comes with an electronic foot file, roller head, 4 AA batteries and a cover for the roller head.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot file

I have been using it for the past one month. I have very dry feet with the skin peeling off, and this one really helped. With the pregnancy fatigue setting in I was lazy to go for pedicures, this one turned out a a life saver. It was like getting a pedicure at the comfort of your house. All you have to do is to turn the power on and roll over the areas that are really hard and dry. You have to gently roll on the areas that are dry for around 3-4 seconds, not more than that on the same area. Follow this by washing of your feet and applying moisturizer for super soft skin. First few times I used it for around 3-4 days continuously to get the result (my feet is were very dry). After that I kept using it twice a week. My feet is really soft now. This has become a regular staple, something I can’t live without now. And the best thing about this product is that you can carry it with you even if you’re travelling.

The roller head is a detachable one. So once you are done with the scrubbing you can remove it from the body and clean it with water, let it dry and place it back. You can clean the body using a damp cloth Make sure that water doesn't touch the file because this one operates on battery. Anyways the packing comes with detail instructions.

I got mine from Lulu hypermarket in Qatar. As I was travelling I picked up additional roller heads too.I did check in boots too, but it wasn't available. In India am not sure where you will get to buy this. It’s available in and flipkart with cash on delivery option.

Price: Rs.2850 (in and

I think all you ladies should have this in your pamper kit.

 Hope you guys enjoyed the review.

BB plus illumination facial creme review BB plus illumination facial creme review

Hi every one

Hope all of you had amazing X’mas and New Year holidays.I had a hectic X’mas week with parties for friends and family, followed by baby shower thrown by my friends. Plus packing and travelling back to my folks place for my delivery.

I am into my 3rd trimester with just 6 weeks left for my delivery. The preps are going on for the arrival of my 2nd one. With fatigue setting in, I am literally counting my days.

Since am home am back to online shopping and was wondering what to buy. So began browsing and finally ended up on my current favorite one Gerard cosmetics. In my first post I had mentioned my first haul from them, the Jaclyn babies’ collection. I was really impressed with products and after the last haul I was looking forward for more shopping with them.

This time I was confused on what to buy from them, as I wanted to try out few more lip-glosses and also their famous BB plus illumination facial creme. I finally opted for the later. I have heard a lot about this BB plus creme from various makeup artists on YouTube and Instagram.

BB plus creme and Nude lipstick

What the brand says about this is that gives a nice glow to your face and is suitable for any complexion. You can use it either by mixing it with your moisturizer or with your foundation for a healthy glow. It can also be used to highlight cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and above the cupid bow of your lips. It can even be applied to your arms, legs and neck area for radiance. Yesterday as soon as I got it I had to try out. I applied it with my moisturizer and my pregnant dull skin was beaming. I really liked the way it felt on my skin, it’s really light has fine gold particles in it which gave the illuminating effect.  Since it was late evening I couldn't click a pick with it.

It’s quiet easy to use. Since it comes with a pump just pump out required amount of the creme and you’re good to go. It’s not messy at all.

Here are the swatches of the BB plus creme

The thing I liked most about my order was the speed at which it was delivered. I placed my order on 8th January morning; it was shipped the same day. In exactly a week it was delivered home.(I am currently in India) I opted for the USPS first class priority mail just like my previous order. They give you the tracking code which is convenient so that you can track each stage of your shipment.

The only disappointment was that there was a small leakage with the BB plus creme. You can make out from the picture. Wish they had packed it the same way they packed the lipstick. That’s my only complaint.

Pricing wise the BB plus illumination creme alone will come up to $36 and the lipstick is $19 .They had an offer going on in which for $28 you’ll get this BB plus creme and a lipstick. You can choose from any one of their lipstick.  Since I wanted to pick up their Nude lipstick, this combo was perfect for me. Including the shipping it came up to $37.50

I hope you liked the review.

Have a great weekend.
