A Brow Find

This product arrived along with some other in a birch box monthly sample kit. But before I start talking about this product, let me describe my brows!

Its medium bushy, with sparse growth near the bridge of the nose and at the end. I don't need to shape it up regularly because it never grows out of place. So I need a product that keeps things in place, does moderate filling and not too dark or over the top. I tried a lot of products and it either looked ineffective or OTT!

So when I was introduced to this I was skeptical. And I was impressed. It moderately covered my tiny bald patches while taming my brows. And there it was, the perfect brow tool!


My Hair Must Haves

I keep switching my products and probably thats why my likes keep changing. But currently in the current weather and currently available product options I have successfully shortlisted products. I love the way they smell and I think I can go on with just 4 things for my hair. A cleansing cream, whom I refuse to call a shampoo, because I believe a shampoo is more intense and hence can't be used every single day. Then there is a light masque as well as an intense masque, and finally a spray that protects and makes styling easy for my hair.


My Favorite Jewelry

I am not into jewelry, but pieces that I like I hold onto with my life. These pieces are usually simple, delicate and the kind that goes along with everything. They stay close to me and I wear them just for myself. They make me feel beautiful and have good energy.

These earrings are by Chan Luu. They are simple and effective. Its based on the usual hooked earrings, however, the reveal at the beginning of the hook is what attracted me. The whole simplicity of this earring is bit surreal to me.

Talking about good energy, thats what I get from this ring. The blue stone with a simple eye-like detail fascinates me. I remember feeling this way when I visited Istanbul. Beautiful, serene and lively.

Dealing Uncalm Skin With Gotz Bad Ischl

Honestly I have heard several things about the redness of my skin. My oily/combination skin can react to anything external. I have tried several products over the years and finally once I got to try the Gotz Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic, I have actually started to see change. Its not the best smelling product but if you want a solution that will last a long time and isn't something momentary then this is the real deal.

Gotz Bad Ischl Oxygen Facial Tonic has been developed from the Bad Ischl Spring Water by Dr. Joseph Gotz. Due to the emperor of Austria, Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor 's brother , Archduke Rudolf had cured himself prolonged skin illnesses in Bad Ischl spa, the spring water which was used, had a magical name of "Godly water" , the name of it spread like wildfire across Europe. Thus, Bad Ischl spa center quickly became a member of European royalty and became one of the "must visit" places for high society celebrities who travel. 

So its no wonder if they say that its that magic potion, which solves most of the regular skin concerns for oily & combination skin. The product contains healing properties of Anthyllis Vulneraria Flower extract, calendula officinalis flower extract, edelweiss, echinacea pallida extract to effectively moisturize, soothe and calm skin, promote wound healing and subsequent absorption of nutrients. Ischl spring water rich in oxygen, exotic mineral and trace elements, the water double cleanses skin, minimizes pores and restore skin's natural balance, improve blood circulation, enhance skin immunity and natural resilience.

I have been now using it for the last 2 weeks and seen remarkable changes when it comes to skin sensitivity. My skin has not been reacting as much to a lot of products and a remarkable reduction in redness. I use it twice a day. After I have cleansed my face thoroughly, I spray a little product in my hands and then dab my palms against my face. Then I just continue along with the regular moisturizer. You can also do this with a cotton pad, but I like the sensation of skin against skin. The most effective method of anti-acne is soaking the pads and leaving them on for a few minutes. But honestly, I have had only one opportunity to do so in the last couple of weeks.

If you are wondering where to find, then its here.


Green Geometric Print Jacket

What would you wear for a formal event at this time of the year? I prefer something loose and boxy. Colorful, but not over-the-top. I love this coat/jacket by Milly. Its a beautiful and extremely comfortable coat which I wore out on a warm day and didn't sweat at all. I, of course did take it off to reveal this beautiful white Erin Erin Fetherston dress, paired with my white block sandals.
