My Saraswati Pooja Makeup & Beauty Haul

My Mini Haul on Saturday, Feb 06

While returning from a friend’s, I somehow ended up with the following items –

1) L’Oreal Total Repair shampoo + conditioner
2) Lotus Herbal Berry Scrub
3) Naturoma Herbal Apricot Facial Scrub
4) Lakme True Wear Nail Colour Red Allure
5) A Dokra Jewelry set consisting of necklace and earrings

The one year anniversary special pack for all L’Oreal shampoos had free conditioners with them, which meant the price to be paid was less than half of what we would be paying if buying them individually. Only a few packs are still left, but I thankfully got the 200 ml shampoo (price Rs 130) and the 180 ml conditioner (price Rs 150) together at Rs 130 only, and not at Rs 280. I cannot use any of the cosmetic shampoos on my scalp because of dandruff problems, but the long hair needs (a lot of) normal, non dermatological shampoo.

Some of the Lotus products have got a new look with differently styled packages and new labels, but the products are actually the good old ones. One such Lotus product is the berry scrub with strawberry and aloe vera exfoliating face wash. The price is yet unchanged at Rs 65 for 50 gm.

The thing I actually had gone to buy was the Naturoma Herbal Apricot Face Scrub (that I had seen at my friend’s and fell in love with the smell). I know that this product has not yet been reviewed in IMBB, so I have already mailed the write-up to Rati. Hopefully that one will be posted soon (or is already out by the time this one gets posted). Funnily, this scrub also costs Rs 65, but the quantity is 100 gm {80 gm + (free) 20 gm}.

Then of course, I saw a wonderful shimmery, yet opaque red nail polish, and could not resist it. So my collection is now richer by one Red Allure from Lakme True Wear Nail Colour Classics shade 402. This is how two coats of the Red Allure look on my nail. It is extremely high gloss and the shimmer has a high refractive index too, making the glaze more intense. Unfortunately, in the picture, the high gloss of the nail polish and the golden shine of the cap of the nail polish bottle are making the colour a bit distorted. And if I use the flash, the picture is coming too white. So I will stick to the flash less one here. The price, as usual, is Rs 90 for 9 ml.

Finally comes the beautiful Dokra set. This was not bought with the rest of the beauty products, but from a shop nearby, which is exclusive for handicrafts and handmade clothes, jewellery and figurines. I am aware that not many readers are aware of this socio-cultural heritage of the tribes of Eastern India, so I will do a detailed article on Dokra later, but right now I’ll just mention that the jewellery in this tradition is made mostly of bronze, in wire form of thickness as per necessity, and is casted over wax, clay and resin. The figures thus made are generally inspired from folk motifs, animal images, and divinity in simple forms. The locket of my hand crafted beaded necklace is the traditional elephant/Ganesh design. The necklace with the handmade wooden beads and the Dokra locket is Rs 60 and the pair of earrings is Rs 40.

At the end of the day, I am very happy with my purchases, especially the last three.
