My Haul – Healthkart, Lush, Forest Essential , MAC & More


Hello all…will you believe that I didn’t have a single “show-off” moment while penning this down? *Grins*

I didn’t! I so didn’t! Honest to God!

And the Pope is not Catholic. Oh well…you know how that is! Here’s a collective post of my hauls (definitely plural) + mini reviews on each of these for the last 2 months, enjoi! *smirks*

What did I get?

– a mini hair dryer + hair serum

  1. A&A* one for the road – a mini hair dryer + hair serum => loved the hair dryer, it has 3 controls. The serum is a little thick, I prefer my L’Oreal one right now.
  2. A&A breath-a-lies – mouth freshening spray & mints => too good, refreshing taste!
  3. A&A Make Mine a Skin & Tonic – cleanser & toner => I loved the toner, it makes me feel super good. The cleanser is thick, not sure if this is the one for me.
  4. Anatomicals Young Free & Tingle Head Shock Shampoo => not tried, may not try. Lookout for this is my Giveaway!!

*Asos & Anatomicals

MAC Lipglass in Richer, Lusher,MAC Lipglass in Partial to Pink

  1. MAC Lipglass in Richer, Lusher

Forest Essentials – dedicated to Ana, are you listening?

Hair Cleanser – Bitter Orange & Cinnamon , Hair Conditioner – Bitter Orange & Cinnamon ,Face Ubtan – Narangi & Nagkesar,

  1. Hair Cleanser – Bitter Orange & Cinnamon
  2. Hair Conditioner – Bitter Orange & Cinnamon => use this alternatively with the Kerastase shampoo+masque, reviewed here  to ensure that the volume remains intact. It has a cinnamon-ey fragrance and I quite like it
  3.  Face Ubtan – Narangi & Nagkesar => my current everyday face wash J I used Nivea before this and it broke me out, I feel FE’s ubtan has cleared it up and brought a nice even look to me J

Health & Glow

VLCC Aroma Hair Strengthening Oil ,L’Oreal 24 Hour Superliner Gel Eyeliner,Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara

  1. VLCC Aroma Hair Strengthening Oil => has always worked for me, using this now. Can’t wait to try FE’s Brahmi hair oil, from my Blisscovered box
  2. L’Oreal 24 Hour Superliner Gel Eyeliner => too good to be true? It’s black, great staying power and it didn’t sting my waterline after the 2nd application.
  3. Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara => use it very very rarely, but for now this works fine for me J
  4. Some random combs => they are quite a necessity!



Freeman bare foot revitalizing foot balm, Gulabari rose water ubtan,Enchateur Perfumed Talc,

  1. Freeman bare foot revitalizing foot balm => u know people at building constructions? I am sure their feet are much better than mine. I have cracks and many cracks, only cracks. This is yet to show its effect, I am waiting.
  2. Eye lens travel box – cute isn’t it? => for my sister!!
  3. Gulabari rose water => to combine with FE’s ubtan
  4. Enchateur Perfumed Talc => every girl needs this pampering talc, that lingers on. The staying power is not great, but I like the fragrance
  5. 3D Design Nail sticker – 1 pack – pink butterfly => cutesy one this is, currently on my nails with Colorbar’s 20 Autumn Rose
