Ask IMBB Gang

Okay this is urgent, I am off to Pondicherry over the weekend and I intend to do a major Fabindia haul from there (dont ask why from there :P) What better than asking our IMBB experts as to what I must get from there, I have oily acne prone skin and I love soaps, hand creams, shower stuff etc too…tell me all you know :D Not just skin care, but everything beauty!

Okay, so Neha, I did a good fab india haul a few months back and i have oily skin. So here is the list of things worth buying:
Rose water, vit e hydrating cream, vit e sunscreen spf 30, avocado foot cream, lemon hand cream, neem tulsi gel scrub, clove gel face pack. I also got the lemongrass facial mist.. but its not an absolute buy. You could check it out though. And their rose and lemon soap.

Apart from that do get kurtas, tunics and ethnic clutches. I like their patialas also.
