My Body Butters Addiction & Collection

In winter months beside a hot cup of coffee , foggy mornings , what i enjoy most is hot baths followed by body butters. I recently went crazy and used bunch of different body butters. And to be honest some people might think that body butters are just a luxury or not necessary but it will change you world when you actually start using them and oh my ! there are so many delicious scrumptious scents. Today i will share with you my body butters collection.

The Bodyshop Body Butter are rich & creamy Body Butter which is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth.

Quince extract acts as a soothing agent to heal and nourish stressed skin. The luxurious balm can be used over the entire body. Best when applied to warm, damp skin, after bathing to lock-in moisture." - Korres

If i have to pick my favorite scents,  then i would say i absolutely love the Vineyard Peach Body Butter , It smells exactly like a juicy summer peach, . It was a gift from my sister who sent it from london , and i think it is limited edition. I also love how VS Fantasies Secret Craving Body Butter smells delicious too and texture is great almost like TBS. Now the formula wise i have to admit that The body shop body butters win , The formula of their body butters is perfect , it's thick and hydrating, without being heavy or greasy and melts into skin. On the other hand i find Bath and body works formula little too thick and not so soft. The soap  & glory righteous body butter smells little way too sweeter for me and its so sweet that it almost the line of being sickening sweet.

 Do you love body butters and if you do which one is your ppersonal favorite ?

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara - Review

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara ($9.99) is a 100% Recyclable Eco-Brush defines each lash with ultra-soft plastic bristles. 100% Free of Harsh Chemicals, Synthetic Preservatives, Parabens, Clumping, Smudging, Flaking, Fibers & Dyes. Hypoallergenic. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.100% of the Total Ingredients are from Natural Origin.
Ok do did you notice ? The Packaging ? Its is first thing which made me buy the mascara . It is shaped like a green chrome leaf .It is so so cute. Since the packaging is quite big , i didnt find it hard to apply the mascara. The Physician formula is famous for their eye catching, cutesie packaging.

If you hate mascara which clump your lashes , then you are gonna love this one. It isn't clumpy at all and really separated my thin sparse lashes.Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara does lengthens my eye lashes and makes them more defined but i wish it was bit more volumizing. I wont recommend it to those who have wtaery eyes , or tend to rub eyes , because this smudges a bit.The formula is on the dry side I have it in shade ultra black , which is true to the name as it is actually black. The brush first reminded me of my favorite Covergirl lash blast mascara but as it comes with a big rubbery brush.But it is more rounder and is more bigger.But its strange that it doesnt poke my eyes like covergirl mascara does sometimes. It applies easily without clumping , in the photo below i am wearing more than 3 coats and you can see my lashes are still clump free. It does wear down over the course of a day , but it holds up the curl nicely and there's no flaking which i like because i hate flakey mascaras.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara brush comapred to Covergirl lashblast
Yes , i am wearing kajal on one eye , Because i forgot to apply it on the other one.

Do i recommend it ? Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Mascara is cruelty-free and scent-free . It is ideal for those who want their to lashes really long, black and bit of volume without clumping. But if you have thin sparse lashes like me you would want to skip it , as it is expensive and there are other better options. I wouldn't say that this is a replacement for my Bourjois volume clubbing mascara because i am still waiting for a mascara which will steal my heart
