Hello everyone, as you all know or will come to know that I am not into beauty blogging and I only share my paintings, poetry, writings, thoughts and art works on this blog. I love to own basic beauty products and felt like sharing my thoughts on some of them that I repeatedly use. So I begin this new series of blog posts with my favorite Layer’rs Wottagirl body mist ‘Mystic Island’.

While we all love to smell good there are people like me who are highly sensitive and perfume intolerant. I keep looking for perfumes which I can wear comfortably but I could find very few. These few fragrances that I could find had one thing in common to my surprise- they all were citrus and oceanic scents and amazingly flowing water drives me super crazy.

I saw the Parineeti Chopra ad on TV a few days back and the word ‘Mystic Island’ was enough for me to try it out. When I went to my nearest cosmetics store I was super surprised to know that it was for Rs 195 only and I couldn’t be happier.
There are two more fragrances which were launched along with this- Vanilla Twist and Secret Crush. The names are quite impressive I should say.
Vanilla Twist smells of butterscotch and Secret Crush is very sweet fragrance and they are both stronger than Mystic Island for obvious reasons.

My Review
Fragrance Mystic Island

Price 195 for 135ml

Packaging- The product comes in a clear plastic bottle which looks like glass. Personally I find these bottles quite classy especially for this price. Overall the packaging is quite sturdy and that makes it travel friendly too.

Fragrance- As I mentioned earlier, the fragrance is aquatic and citrus. It is mild fragrance and feels very fresh. I would call it a luxurious blend of bitter orange, lemon, musk, aquatic and woody notes,

Staying power- it is known to all the body mist users that their staying power is very low. Generally they last 3-4 hours and I did not expect anything more from this. I keep this bottle in my hand bag and spray it twice or thrice during the day. It lifts my senses immediately and makes me feel fresh.

Overall I am super happy with this body mist as the fragrance is very refreshing. It is one of the best body mists for perfume allergic people especially for those who are on a budget. It is very close to my favourite perfume- Davidoff Cool Water for women which costs around 1600 INR.


° Mild, refreshing fragrance
° Best for perfume allergic people
° Super affordable
° Perfect for everyday use
° Suitable for all seasons
° Travel friendly light and sturdy packaging
° Aquatic floral fragrance feels fresh

° Contains alcohol

I don’t see the staying power as a con because body mists usually last for max 5-6 hours so this one does its job exceptionally well considering the price. It is a must try for all, go grab one now and tell me what you think about it in the comments.

More reviews on the way, stay connected.


Celebrating Love

We often hear and talk a lot about love but I truly believe that there is a need to understand the difference between crush, infatuation and love so that we can save love from all those misinterpretations. It was shocking for me to hear people say that they would never like to fall in love with someone because they feel love gives pain which further causes emotional torment. My heart throbs for such people because I have felt and experienced the power of love and from my own experiences I can tell that  the miracles of love are beyond one’s imagination. One can only feel them. When you place your faith in someone, when you see your world in those two eyes, when you walk into their arms to feel the heaven it is then that you realize that all the peace and happiness that you had been searching for lies in this magical feeling which people call love and you might give a name of your own choice because love is not known by its name, it is known by the way it makes people feel. What do you become when you learn to put someone first, when you learn to care for someone before your own needs and when learn to trust someone blindly? You become what god had made you-a souls, you become a pure soul who is free and young, free enough to let go of your own desires and materialistic pleasure and young enough to shower love on your beloved. This is what true love does to a body which is vulnerable in this corrupt world, this is how love saves a body from stooping down to the level of beasts.
It is not that love which begins at first sight and ends at first fight nor that which loses its charm as the veil is dropped at first night! It is that which can eternalize two souls and immortalize two bodies.
