Mini Haul [< Rs.500]

I was so bored not shopping anything for a while, so just went for a drive to the nearby ice cream parlour and asked my hubby to take me to Health and Glow. Be it big or small shopping does make a big difference, that too to a shopaholic like me ;) So here are the products I got during this sudden unplanned shopping and I am sharing this small happiness with all you guys :)

Cool & Cool Mini Tissues

My mini tissues pack got over and thus wanted to get a small pack to be carried in my handbag. This pack has 10 tissues that costs Rs.12. As mentioned in the pack the tissues are soft and gentle so that it can be used as facial tissues as well. Also it has a mild pleasant fragrance.

Anne French Hair Remover Cream

Since I saw the new Anne French ad I wanted to give it a try. I have used Anne French when I was in my school. Slowly I stopped using it, I don't remember the reason though. All I could remember was the bad smell then, so hoping the same would have got rectified I got this small jar for sensitive skin [Aloe Vera]. This tiny 40 gm jar costs Rs.45. I feel this is a good deal for trial purpose.

Kara Deep Pore Cleansing Wipes

Though I have my MAC and ELF wipes I always prefer carrying wet wipes with me either in my bag or in the car. It has been more than a month so I got these Kara wipes. 10 wipes costs Rs.45. The one I got was deep pore cleansing wipes with jojoba and avacado.

Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm

This Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm is supposed to lighten and even out lip tones. Though I use beetroot and my Burts Bee's lip balm I was really tempted to try this one. The cream is in brick red color and on application is leaves a orangish color on my lips. This small 16 gms tub costs Rs.99.

Lakme Black Satin Kajal

Since my Biotique Kajal is about to get over and also hearing people rave about this Lakme kajal I thought this was the right time to pick it up. This product is really amazing and the color pay off is really dark, the darkest black anyone would love. The Lakme Black Satin Kajal costs Rs.150.


I got a small packet of daily use bindis. My hubby likes these diya shaped maroon bindis so I just blindly picked this packet that costs Rs.20.
