The body Shop Italian Summer Fig Eau De Toilette ~Review

What body shop says

scent your skin with the fresh, fruity fragrance of Italian Summer Fig. Our figs are emblematic of the Puglian coast in Italy – we hand-selected them there, where the sun-baked soils produce them in abundance and with a juicy scent that fills the warm air in summer. We pick them at the height of summer when their aroma is the richest, and create our succulent green scent.
  • Green, juicy fragrance
  • With Community Fair Trade organic alcohol
  • Layer with other products in the Italian Summer Fig range to build the scent




My Experience

This year body shop showed immense change in their product lines.Spa of world collection is just to remind you from many.Body shop fragrances are the core part of their product range from decades.Some of them got new packaging and a whole new range of products with different formulas  e.g the musk which i reviewed earlier on the blog.


Italian fig is also from the new line of the fragrances that released this summer .Italian figs have been used in the notes collected  at the peak time of Summers to capture the warm juicy scent to refresh senses.Man look at the damn sassy little bottle,it way beautiful in real than in pictures.On the other hand honestly I am  a musk person,deep and sensuous fragrances are always my taste.So when i got this one to  try i was sure without opening that this is not my kinda fragrance but boy again  body shop proved me wrong.This is citrus  kinda fragrance not sweet  and a good daily wear.It’s a gorgeously fresh fragrance with lots of green notes from fig leaf alongside crocus. It has a beautiful floral heart with Tuscan rose and a soft, warm smooth base of oakwood and amber.

Although the wear time is short like 4-5 hours and it does fade after that but still it is so refreshing and light I dun mind spraying it again!!!!

.




Would I recommend?

It is vegan ,affordable and a perfect day wear scent !!!!!

My Ratings

4/5
The smell is very fresh, green and with a slight woody undertone

Price and availability

Available at all body shop outlets in Rs.3940 and online here

The body shop Lip butter strawberry ~Review & photos

haya pretties

lemme say to you I am a  lip balm hoarder like seriously , I cant rely on one product so i need at least three in my vanity to satisfy my crave at a time:p~I got this little tub in  my body shop goodies bag in summers, but the best time to check and write review  has to be winters cuz  i found it thick to use in summers.So how it is?scroll down to read more



what body shop says


This buttery balm melts onto the lips for instant hydration. It contains sweet strawberry seed oil.
  • Instant hydration
  • Buttery texture
  • Leaves lips feeling soft and smooth



My Experience

I liked the packaging,a small round tub just like body butters but miniature in size, yes on the other hand it is unhygienic to put fingers every time to get product on lips.The balm is white and very thick in consistency and if applied in heavy layer then it does leave white cast so i suggest a little goes long way.
For me it is best under matte lippies and as a night time lip repair weapon.It really moisturizers your lips and keeps them super soft, even after it wears off. My lips never feel chapped and it smells incredible. 


This is definitely a must buy!!!!



Would I Recommend?

I love this, it smells gorgeous and softens lips really well.

My Ratings 

 4.5/5

They do last a good while however they're a little pricey.

This is easily available at all body shop outlets and online here

Save a Child a Minute from Diarrhoea~RB joins hands with PIP to eradicate diarrhoea





Reckitt Benckiser (RB), manufacturers of Dettol, and Plan International Pakistan, a developmental sector organization, have collaborated to design and test a new approach to reduce the incidence of diarrhoea amongst under-five children by improving the health, hygiene and sanitation conditions


yesterday, December 8, 2015 RB and Plan have jointly launched an innovative behaviour changing campaign, “Save a Child a Minute” in Pakistan. The vision is to stop deaths from diarrhoea by empowering women and creating wealth for local communities.
Alarmingly, diarrhoea is the second leading cause of deaths among under-five children. It kills 53,000 children annually, in Pakistan (PDHS 2013). Research also suggests that children who suffer two to three diarrhoeal episodes and survive diarrhoea in the initial two years of their life are vulnerable to malnutrition.
Representative of Professor Ahsan Iqbal, Federal Minister for Planning and Development stated in his speech
“This is a brilliant and innovative initiative towards eradicating diarrhoea and a stepping stone for public-private partnerships to improve health conditions and empower local communities. The best part is that it is in line with the government vision project 2025. Currently the government is collaborating for the pilot, it can further look into jointly upscaling the campaign at a national level.”
Rashid Javed, Country Director Plan International Pakistan with his remarks:
“Based on our experience of Sanitation Marketing we are now moving forward to test a new model of women entrepreneurship. The model is based on helping communities to adopt improved hygiene behaviours and sustaining them through a sustainable supply chain. Establishing a system of supply and demand and linking it with women entrepreneur/Women hygienist is an idea which will ultimately help these women to earn their livelihood while helping their communities to promote health by adopting improved behaviours for water, sanitation and hygiene.”


Shahzeb Mehmood, CEO RB Pakistan highlighted the key points of the project, during his speech he stated:
“RB has always aimed to provide healthier homes and happier lives through trusted brands such as Dettol, Mortein, Harpic and many more. This global initiative simultaneously being run in Pakistan, Nigeria and India seeks to eradicate diarrhoea and improve general health and hygiene of the low-income consumers by habit change. Through global research and technology, RB designed a low-cost antibacterial soap under the Dettol brand, a complete new formulation specifically for this purpose. The aim is to interactively educate consumers about health and hygiene, provide them with affordable health and sanitary solutions (by RB and other private companies such as Shan Foods, Searle, Peak Freans and Santex) and in the process empower local women who will sell these products door-to-door.”
For the next 6 months, in the pilot phase of the campaign, RB and Plan will cover 600 households in Dhori, a village in Sargodha. Based on the learnings from this pilot, “Save a Child a Minute” will then be scaled up nationally by RB and Plan in close coordination with the federal and provincial government to support the Government’s Vision 2025 project.

The body Shop Black musk Eau De Parfum ~Review & inspired look



The body shop Pakistan launched the hottest black musk eau de range of parfum and parfum oil last month in Karachi.Islamabad bloggers were lucky enough to get their hands on the new products courtesy body shop Pakistan. obviously the cream of the goodies bag had to be black musk as  is announced to be the darkest and most sensuous of all the scents followed by the famous musk red and white ones which are best sellers of body shop.


 The body shop says about black musk


The bBecome brazenly seduced by the dual scent personas of Black Musk. Our brand new, dark and desirable fragrance plays up to your fierce inner, and ever so sweet outer! Captivating, feminine notes of bambinella pear, intensified by pink pepper and bergamot. Embraced by heliotrope with an aphrodisiac lilt of luscious liquorice. This eau de parfum is further deepened by black vanilla and black musk accords. Don't be afraid to be... naughty AND nice! ody shop says about Black musk



Top notes: pear, pink pepper. bergamot
Heart: heliotrope, ylang-ylang, licorice
Base: black musk, black vanilla, patchouli, vetiver, chocolate

My Experience 

 Sensuous and deep scents are always,always my thing,i have a strong love relationship with extra ordinary perfumes and it certainly is a sexy little number.Sweet on the outside ,fierce on the inside as described by body shop.
I love the sleek,black and deep packaging that  reminds me every time that this is not ordinary one.Red musk has ruled my aromatic senses since last year.I don't remember exactly any other scent has taken me over like red musk but this is giving it a tough time.I hadn't had high hopes as i read quite mix review about this but oh man this is a keeper i must say.It 's deep,it's sensuous. it's sexy and it is rightful spicy to warm the senses.Yes it is sweet but that sweetness is not on fruity side it is something that empowers senses.It is smooth and sweet without being debilitated and has a  woody base that is set to keep going truly well on the skin. It's a magnificent winter fragrance.

Overall this fragrance has blown me away and sitting next to my red musk rack.

 

Inspired look



Pros 

  • deep sensuous perfume
  • long lasting
  • spicy notes
  • vegan
  • sleek packaging
 

Cons

  • price is bit steep

My recommendation

deep and sensuous scent that is sweet and fierce at the same time!!!!go get it guyz

ITs in your jeans~Classic outfits

A good pair of jeans is a timeless possession that can never go out of style. Jeans which beats the rundown of comfort wear can be wore at any time of day or night. The modern woman wardrobe is pretty incomplete without a nice pair of jeans which can enhance her curves.
From slim fit to curvy body jeans are designed as such to give woman their desired curvy looks.
You can pair it with a trendy kurta or a stylo shirt to rock the look. For me jeans are the most comfortable wear of any time of day whether i am going outside or invited at some place i like to pair a cool jeans pair with some stylish top and a colorful scarf to complete the look.
But you should know what your body type is and what jean would suit you to most.

Here are some of many types of women’s jeans,

boot cut jeans for women 

boot cut jeans  have a slight flare from knee to hem and are perfect to wear over boots or heels.And can be combine with fitted shirts to give a illusion of height in short women.




skinny jeans for women

skinny jeans (when made of denim) have a snug fit through the legs and end in a small leg opening that can be anywhere from 9" to 20" depending on size.skinny jeans are perfect to look slim and tall.Combine them with medium length top and viola


slim fit jeans

They are same as skinny, they gave an illusion of slim thighs. Slim fit jeans are perfect to show the curves, my personal favorite is this type as it always makes me look slim and curvy.


loose fit jeans for women

A pair of relaxed-fit jeans are characterized by a fit that retains its shape in the seat but is slightly looser in the thigh and hip area.they are good for slim girls as they are towards baggy style and can make look chubby ones more fat


straight leg jeans



Straight leg jeans are denim pants that are cut so that the diameter of the leg opening is almost exactly the same from the knee down to the ankle. For me they are perfect for working woman and for formal occasions with some trendy top.




Daraz.pk has a tremendous variety of women’s jeans online. You can find a good pair of branded jeans at your doorstep without any hassle of going out with seven days returns if you get the wrong size. From Fifth Avenue to Stone Age they have huge variety to select from with free shipping on orders above 1500.
