Product Review: Facial Cleaner With Sandalwood & Orange Peel

This review is of a brand that I’ve not used much. Whenever I have had occasion to use the products it’s been solely due to them being gifted since I usually find it quite OTT expensive.

Product Comparison: Body Butter Vs.Body Yogurt

I am a Bodyshop loyalist and have been since I fell for the mild and yet intoxicating smells coming out of a store in a mall in Mumbai nearly 20 years ago.
