I always tend to snack on the most unhealthy things in the evening! If evening hunger pangs bother you too here’s something that will help you make the delicious switch from junk food and caffeine!
The wonderful Mumbai dabbawalas got me the Saffola Active Soups @saffolafitfoodiewhich have 5x more fibre. Low on calories, delicious and a #TastyWayToStayFit is what #Saffola promises you with their new range of soups that keep you full the entire evening. Here’s how it reached us:

The three varieties of soups that reached us are the Red Tomato Soup, Chatpata SweetCorn Soup and the Spicy Manchow Soup. The Tomato Soup was rich and creamy whereas the Sweet Corn Soup was just like an authentic corn soup, hot and comforting. For those who love a little spice in their lives, the Spicy Manchow Soup is a great choice. Overall, this is a great option to avoid unhealthy snacking or as we call it ‘boredom’ snacking.

Saffola Active Soups are easily available at your nearby supermarkets or general stores.

Product Review: Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen

Colorbar’s Radiant Glow Illuminator Pen is a compact, easy to carry highlighter which is a great product to give you a natural shine and to enhance your make up as well as the high points of your face.

Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen resembles your regular ball pen with a push button at the back.  A soft bristle releases the highlighter when tapped on the skin and when pressed from the back. You can use it to apply the product directly on the face.

It is a cream based highlighter and it’s easy to apply since it’s smooth and rich. The best part about the product is that it’s not too glittery and can be used on all skin types. Ensure to clean the bristle with a soft tissue after every use or the product will accumulate and make the brush hard.

Overall, it is a great product, especially since it looks natural on applying and extremely travel friendly.

Review: Entisi Chocolatier

Entisi the newest Chocolate Store in Santacruz West, claims to infuse their passion and expertise in crafting the finest chocolates with rich, creamy textures and a divine feeling. They have a range of Chocolates from Bon Bons, Bars, Dragees, Single Origins and Cubes. Priced on the higher end, these chocolates are apt for gifting purposes or for a pampering treat for yourself.

We loved a couple of flavours that we tried which included the centre filled Raspberry – Chocolate and raspberry ganache encased in dark chocolate, Kesar Pista which was a perfect replacement for your Indian Mithai – saffron, cardamom and homemade authentic pistachio paste in creamy white chocolate shell and the Coffee which was made with real coffee beans infused overnight to get a powerful coffee flavoured ganache in dark chocolate.

The Dragees were quite delicious too but addictive as well, we couldn’t stop at one and had a few too many.

The founder Nikki Thakker was kind enough to share her story behind the brand and her passion for Chocolate making. It’s great to know that the market for fine chocolates is growing by the day in Mumbai.

Product Review: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon

My current favourite work wear lip shade is the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon. A lovely Pinkish Nude, I got this one from Dubai and the brand is available at most of the Sephora outlets in Dubai.

The shade “Icon,” is described as a classic peachy pink and when you apply it, it does look more peachy. However, on drying up, it darkens and looks more nude and very attractive. It’s perfect for the Indian skin tone. Extremely well pigmented and just one swipe is enough for the shade to stay on. For a gloss, it stays relatively long say about 4-6 hours. The packaging is great too, quite appealing. The gloss bottle is packed in a cardboard container (check picture). A little steep on the pricing, we would totally recommend this if you’re checking out the best matte lip colours out there.

Product Review: Organic Harvest Activ Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser

img_8306

Organic Harvest is an Indian brand which has an entire range of organic skin care, body care and hair care products. Organic products really excite me as I know that they are much more sensitive on the skin and free of chemicals.

The packaging of the product is quite cool. It comes in a plastic bottle with an integrated silicon cleansing brush. So you can use the product and then cover the brush with the cap provided.

The ingredients of this product as mentioned on the bottle are Aqua, Organic Acai berry extract, Organic Decyl glucoside, Organic cocoamphodiacetate, Olive oil, Liquid Shea butter and fragrance.

The bottle also mentions clear instructions on how to use the product. 
You need to pump a generous amount and apply the foam in upward strokes. Usually a single pump is more than enough for the entire face. After you have massaged the entire face, rinse it off thoroughly.

The product is quite effective to remove dirt and excessive oil from the skin. It’s not too dry and cleanses the pores out well. Avoid using it on acne prone area as the brush might irritate the sensitive skin. Overall, the product is great to exfoliate and cleanse the skin.

Product Review: Maybelline New York the Colossal Liner – Black

Maybelline has some of the finest cosmetics and their kajal and liner are the best you can get in the market at affordable rates.

The Maybelline New York Colossal Liner comes in a pen like sleek packaging and is quite sturdy to carry around without worrying about the cap opening while you keep it in your bag.

On applying, you will realize that the flexi tip makes it easy to apply, whether you want a thin line or a winged eye look. One of the best jet black liners in the market, this one easily stays for 8-10 hours without fading or getting smudged. But the best part about this product is that it dries really quick, so for all you ladies who are impatient and can’t keep your eyes shut for too long after applying your liner, this one is for  you.
