Skin 79 Vital Super Plus BB Cream 50+ PA+++, Where have you been all my life? - Just one cream and You are ready to go :)

Vital Skin79 recently launched their new Vital Super Plus BB Cream SPF 50+ PA+++  with the advantages of five vital vitamin complexs -Vitamin A,C,E Derivatives,E Antioxidant &F which is even better than a foundation. Provides medium coverage as it is tinted and at same time it cures fine lines and wrinkles,fights antioxidants and anti aging,provides fairness and elasticity as well as brightens your skin. This BB Cream has the highest protection factor till now in the SKIN79 Range and is excellent for oily/combination skin.

Vital Skin79 is a Korean Cruelty free brand which has range of BB Creams. The largest selling cream from this brand is the HOT PINK BB CREAM.

Whats a BB Cream?
BB Creams also known as Blemish Balm were formerly used as a skin protection cream after Cosmetic Surgery. These creams were medically used to rejuvenate the skin. Skin79 created a special BB Cream combined with extra benefits to treat and protect and since it is tinted it provides the coverage of a foundation and even better because it covers, protects and treats. A BB Cream is a all-in-one formula for foundation, moisture, SPF protection, balance and brightening. No other cream in the world can perform this way.

Skin79 BB Creams are still not available in India right now but you can easily purchase them from
Maybelline has recently launched in India with it's range of BB Creams for fair to dark skin tones however I detest buying Maybelline products as they test on animals. So, I am very happy with SKIN79 BB Cream.


I purchased my BB Cream from the brand SKIN VITAL79 50+ from for $18/ 850 INR. It came in an orange packaging like you can see in the pictures above and  also came along with a small sample of HOT PINK BB Cream.


Wash your face like you normally do after that apply BB Cream just as you apply a foundation. Don't take to much, a small pea size of the cream is sufficient for your face and spread it evenly. Make sure that you purchase a BB Cream matching to your skin tone. I purchased the shade in sand beige and the BB Cream with the orange packaging as I am fair and I have oily/combination skin.

After the application you will feel that you look too white but wait for few minutes as your skin will drink it up and the BB Cream will merge beautifully with your skin. Plus it will provide you coverage and skin protection of 50+ PA+++


  1. Fairness - Cures uneven skintone, blemishes and under eyedark circles.
  2. Elasticity - firming.
  3. Brightening - Imparts glow Vitamin A,C,E,F.
  4. Antioxidants.
  5. Anti - aging - Imparts elasticity to sagging skin.
  6. Nourishment.
  7. Vitality.
  8. Moisturising.
  9. Anti-Wrinkle - Fights wrinkles.
  10. Built in Sunscreen - Sunprotection 50+ PA+++ (UVA &UVB).
  11. UV Interception - This is an intensive specialized pact which protects skin effectively from strong ultraviolet rays by intercepting ultraviolet rays UV A and B simultaneously. Simply means 3D Coating Powder keeps your skin look luminous and shining according to angle of the light.
  12. Foundation - Provides medium coverage as it is tinted.
  13. Blocks Melanin formation.
  14. Not tested on Animals :)


On the first the application I felt a little uncomfortable as it made my face look too white and at the end of the day I had two new pimples on my forehead which really disappointed me and did not use this cream for another four to five days but then I tried it again and increased my intake of water. The results were good I did not end up having pimples this time at the end of the day.

What I also realised was that it is getting hotter here in India and due to the summer season you end up with a pimple or two even if you don't apply BB Cream.

  • I continued using it for almost a week and Yes, there is a visible difference in my skin. 
  • I no longer have pimples on my face.
  • This Cream provides me with the coverage of a foundation with benefits. So, I don't need a foundation anymore.
  • I can directly apply makeup over this which lasts atleast 4 to 5 hours in this serious hot summers with temperatures rising every day hopefully this cream should perform better in winters.
  • My husband complemented me that now my face glows more and has become more firm.
  • I also noticed that my under eye dark circles are almost cured.
  • It is easy to apply and hassle free - Just one cream and you are ready to go!! :)

Skin79 is a cruelty free brand and performs better than any Olay cream with 7-1 benefits. I am loving my new BB Cream with 14 -1 benefits!!

SKIN79 BB CREAM -YAY!! - Keep it!

Louis Vuitton buys 8% stock in FabIndia!!

I am sure many of you must come to know about this that LV, Louie Vuitton has just bought a part of FABINDIA. Fabindia is company which believes in fairtrading and helps rural workers to make a living.

For many generations FABINDIA has been an indian icon for their cotton and khadi cloths, traditional jewellery and Organic Mango chutney!

Its really funny to know that a brand like LV needs a hand of FABINDIA in the future to capture the market.
I guess they have realised that the common consumer is smarter and saves money rather than satisfying their ego by buying LV Bags...well, not every body needs them as fake LV's are sold online these days half the price..who will get to know? whether you are carrying a fake one or real one?

I Hope if LV has bought some part of FABINDIA - one khadi shirt of fabindia should not cost 20000 INR?  :) We were okay, with FABINDIA when LV wasn't there.

There was a time around 300- 400 Years ago when the british had to buy rights in india to export spices and cloth. NOW, HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF! I guess they have realised that future of the world is in the so called 3rd world countires like they said - India and Africa.

I am sure next time when I wear a Fabindia shirt I am gonna look extremely fashionable A.K.A Haute couture after all LV is a part of FABINDIA or when I buy FABINDIA Bag they will have a LV Label :)

I am Laughing out loud at the same time I am proud of FABINDIA!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012 Haul and Review!!


I recently purchased a lehenga saree from on sale 30%. I always prefer to choose the cash on delivery option until or unless if there is pay pal which is world's best way to pay!

This was the first order that I placed with them and I am pretty happy with the Saree it is very beautiful as you can see in the pictures and I only wish if the quality of the blouse material could have been better. This Saree has Parsi resham work on it which makes it look timeless, It does also reminds you of the Saree which Aishwarya Rai wore in Devdas but the work on this Saree is a little different the colour combination is the same. This Saree costed  5922 INR on 30% Sale and the quality turned out to be pretty good and at this price it's a steal! I placed the order with them on the 10th of March and the delivery was made on the 15th March by Aramex courier service from Chennai. The packaging was done well.

This Saree has been made with three types of materials Net, Velvet & Crepe with Parsi Resham and Sitara work which makes it unique. The colour combination of Red and Navy blue makes the Saree look awesome!! Great for any wedding and celebration.

Off course this is my birthday gift this year by my Husband....Thank you darling!!

I ordered the Saree unfinished and then I got my Saree and Blouse were stitched at my Boutique Ambiance Kreators...
Boutique Website:- Ambiance Kreators

The Saree has been Stitched as per my body dimensions at Ambiance. It took me only two minutes to wear the Saree. All I had to was to wear it like a skirt!! :)

The blouse is padded and stitched at Ambiance. So, I did not need to wear a bustier under it!

It has been a pleasure shopping with and I would love to purchase from them even in the future!!

Availability: on 30% Sale

Make Your Own Prolong Wear Lipstick!

In order to make your Inglot Lipstick or Any lipstick long staying:
  • You can apply a concealer or any neutral lipstick as a base first.
  • Then apply the Inglot/ Or any lipstick. I used #69 from the Inglot freedom palette.
  • Apply Pro long wear lipgloss on top in order to seal your lipstick. Do Not Drink or Eat for 15 Minutes. This will seal your lipstick for atleast 6 hours. I used the colorbar extra durable lipcolour.
Prolong wear lipgloss is available at MAC, Inglot and Colorbar.

Inglot Freedom Palette - Lipsticks Review and Swatches.

Last April I visited the Inglot Store and I found their freedom system pretty interesting the best part was that I could buy any lipstick from the freedom system for only 300 INR/ $5 thats really good price for a great brand like Inglot; Since they don't use any parabens in there products it is even better for people with sensitive skin and cruelty free is a bonus!

I found there lipsticks from the freedom system glossy in texture with high shine none of their lipsticks from the freedom system are drying or matte.
