I have this problem of throwing away all my empty product bottles. I have been trying to write a blog on this for like ages. Finally I have some empty bottles that I have used up and really like.

This is my all time favorite and I can never get over with this. I use and repurchase and the story goes on and on:) I just love the fragrance and would highly recommend.

Olay Aquaction

I hate that we don’t get this product in US and is only available in South East Asian countries. I am so sad that I have used up the last bottle. I have also mentioned this in my ‘product of the year’ blog! This is an amazing product for all kind of skin. It gives amazing hydration, light weight and non sticky.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

This lightweight milky serum corrects and prevents dark spots, to even skin tone and increase radiance. Highly concentrated with patented Viniferine to counter sunspots, acne marks, scars, and damage, for a brighter, beautiful complexion. This doesn’t work too well on pigmentations but its amazing for brightness and complexion. My pigmentation was lessen but not gone completely but would still give it a big thumps up!

EOS and L’OCCITANE

Its winter and my hands are just dry. I have used up these two faves of mine. These are my favorite hand creams! These are super-creamy balms penetrate the skin quickly to protect, moisturize, and replenish dehydrated hands.

Nature Republic Aqua

Again its the last bottle that I had 😦 I have really been liking the gel based formula cream. These formula works very well on dry skin and really hydrates. Its lightweight, smooth, and a beautiful shade of baby pink. Its smells like peach fruit or light floral. Will highly recommend

Shiseido End Cure Milk

I don’t know why I have missed to mention about this product before. This product is like a holy grail to repairs split ends by replenishing the nutrients needed by hair. Its a non-rinse treatment and is best applied only on hair ends to achieve more concentrated enrichment. The fragrance is amazing.

Thanks for reading this !

The Shiseido Hadasui Face and Body Lotion


When I picked up this product I had no idea about it benefits. The reason this caught my eye because first it’s from the Shiseido range and the secondly it looks more like a mineral water bottle rather than lotion. If I have to tell you imagine a lotion bottle, you might end up imagining some colorful bottles with some greasy or non -greasy liquid. Well this is completely different.

If I talk about its packing it’s a very cool looking plain bottle with water inside. Clear crystal looking water. Wait this water is 100% natural water of Mount Fuji. It hydrates and maintains pH balance for your skin and its alcohol free.

I will highly recommend it to people who have oily skin and doesn’t love applying lotions.

Ma Cherie Shampoo Orange Champagne


Adding another one to my Shiseido collection! I just LOVE their shampoo. I actually wanted to try all their ranges before deciding which one to stick with. I bought this shampoo when I was in Hong Kong. I have been using this shampoo for a while now, almost 3 months to be precise.

Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo Orange Champagne

The product description says, “Luxurious shampoo restores vital moisture, while gently washing away impurities and excess oil that may lead to dull and unmanageable hair. Nourishing and moisturizing ingredients provides continuous hydration for sustained health and shine. Elegant floral scent keeps hair smelling fresh and clean longer.

If you were a regular follower of our blog you would know that I have dry, curly hair. Getting a shampoo, which suits my hair type, is very difficult to find. After a long wait I finally found Shiseido collection. This product again is an amazing match to my hair. I love the smell and the texture. It makes my hair really soft but best result is to use the conditioner after the wash.

This costs about $11 approximately.
