Ambika Pillai Cosmetics
I have been eyeing brand for quite sometime now. Last time I went to their counter to check what they have and the first thing that the SA spoke was ” our cosmetics are made in New York”. And I was like oh okay! 😛 I was in a hurry last time but this time I decided to check what they have. They deal only in lipsticks (rs 750 ), lip glosses (rs 750 ), coloured mascaras and makeup brushes. The only thing that interested me were the makeup brushes. They are of fine quality and are priced decently between Rs 400 – Rs 800. Read more about Ambika Pillai Cosmetics here.
Then there were as this flea market kind of stalls that were set up by an NGO called Happy Hands Foundation. It’s an NGO that promotes rural craft and art. There were beautiful hand made stuff made by artisan, craftsmen, sex workers, underprivileged etc.
I decided to support them in my little way. Bought this multipurpose wooden box. 🙂
You guys remember my review on Earthen Good lip balm and Apricot Scrub?
I thought I would never be able to find them again. Guess what! they are back with their flashy new packaging 🙂 and increased prices. :pain: This time the range is also bigger. It includes scrubs, body oils, body butters, lip balms, hand and foot cream, body scrubs and candiet fruit. I was so happy to see them . I didn’t buy anything because I have loads of stuff to finish up already. The range starts from Rs 55 and goes up til Rs 180 (100 ml apricot oil.) Mostly everything is priced at Rs 75. 🙂
Quoting the Earth Store:
‘Earth Store’ products are sourced directly from farms, women’s groups and artisans around India following ethical business practices. The products are minimally processed with no artificial preservatives and are often made using time tested handmade processes.
Next was the Jovees counter.
They were testing your skin and recommending your products based on your skin type. It’s a herbal skin care, body care and hair care range. The packaging is kind of sad but considering all the herbal ingredients that they list on their products, the range seems promising. The products are priced anything between Rs 50- Rs 400

Next I came across a very cute brand called Nourish
It is a range of hand crafted bath and body products. They have a range of body scrubs, soaps, moisturizers etc. Most of the products are priced at around Rs 300 – Rs 500 (and above) they have a whole lot of range that includes honey as a main ingredient. They have cute names also such as madras Coffee Madness Body Scrub, or Juicy Apricot lotion. The packaging is uber cute and aren’t we all suckers for natural products?
