Night Time Skin Care Routine for Indian Skin

Hey,

These products I’ve used for about a month. Some I’ve been using a month before my wedding so I can vouch for their efficacy. This skin care regimen helps in cleansing and plumping tired out skin, especially after a long stressful day. I try to use organic products. I do feel that chemical based products give better results for instant gratification, but in the long run, your skin will thank you for the organic, natural ingredient based products you use. I uploaded a video of my night time skin care regimen and you can see how plump and luminous my skin is at the end.

Brazilian Wax for the Indian Mind

I think everyone feels peer pressure at some stage in life, if not all. I remember, back in my 7th grade, one girl (the famous one) had come to school having waxed her legs. All the girls and guys were intrigued and excited respectively. She gave the impression that waxing was the in thing and certainly the boys enjoyed the idea. I remember thinking then, that waxing would make me more appealing to everyone, gain more friends, be more popular as they say. I hopped onto that bandwagon and now 15 years later I’m paying the price. That’s a story for another day, I’m working on mitigating the consequences of my waxing.

This is my opinion on Brazilian wax. For those of you who do not know what a Brazilian wax is, you basically reduce yourself to your prepubescent version of yourself down there. This will hopefully have answers to the questions you have about the Brazilian Wax.

Lorraine Heath: Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel (Scoundrel’s of St. James #4)

Hey guys,

This is a review on a new author. I really do not know how I stumbled into her books. All I know is her writing and story is almost at par with one of my favorites: Lisa Kleypas (If you are looking to read a book by Kleypas, I recommend¬†“Dreaming of You” click¬†here for the review. Lorraine Heath is a newer find and definitely in my to read list. Her stories are compelling, witty and overall charming. Her books have this charm that reels you in. None more that this book, her fourth book in the Scoundrels of St. James series. The predecessors are all great books with humorous and touching stories. But this one book (I feel) is so much more special than all the others combined. Read on for a review with some few spoilers.

Dr. Sheth’s Eye Cream (Limited Edition)

Hey guys,

This is a product review for the Dr. Sheth’s Eye Cream. I bought this a while ago, but only recently started to use it my morning and night skin regimen.

So a quick backstory on the company and how I stumbled upon their skin care line. The company was started by a family of dermatologist specializing in skin are primarily for Indian Skin. They use organic and natural ingredients in their skin care line. They have described themselves as a luxury skin care brand. Although their line is not in any way economical, it is not completely out of the middle class budget. I contacted the company via Instagram to inquire if their products are vegan and cruelty free. They claim to be so, but it is not advertised on their site. They also do not fall in PETA’s list of cruelty free vegan brands (as fas as I know). I took the leap of faith and purchased this eye cream.
