Beauty Review : Chumbak’s Skincare Range

Chumbak as a brand is all about joie de vivre. Their stores are so vibrant and eclectic that every visit fills you with zest and delight. I love their motto of #makehappy 😊. Recently, the brand came up with their skincare range, something very different from their usual categories. The packaging is aesthetically pleasing and the nomenclature is quite artistic. The products are devoid of any parabens and carcinogenic substances. And the best part, they are all hand processed and Chumbak is against animal testing.

Here we are reviewing the shower gel, hand sanitiser and lip balm :

Good Things Shower Gel :

– priced at 395 rupees/250 ml.

– very mild with a subtle floral fragrance. The fragrance reminds me of a soap i used as a kid though I can’t recall the name.

– not very effective for cleansing and doesn’t lather much.

I am a big fan of shower gels from The Body Shop, there are so many to choose from different skincare ranges and each has a special purpose. I hope Chumbak comes up with more and better options in this category.

DSC_1098Good Things Hand Sanitiser :

– priced at 195 rupees/50 ml.

– floral fragrance similar to the shower gel.

– gets absorbed quickly.

Sanitiser has become an essential thing given the number of germs and viruses in the environment, but I always dread the smell of these. This is a great product from Chumbak , you get clean hands without that pungent smell.

Tangerine Tales Lipbalm :

– priced at 195 rupees/8 ml.

– light texture and quite moisturising.

– can be a perfect base for matte lipsticks.

– tantalising aroma of tangerine.

This is my favourite out of the three. I do not prefer glossy balms as they ruin the matte effect. This one is not heavy and yet very hydrating for the lips.

So the sanitiser and the lipbalm surely won my heart. I will definitely be reviewing other products from their skincare range soon.

Grab The Sale :)

This post is about the drool-worthy sale going on in two of my absolute favourite brands. A visit to their stores is a must part of my shopping spree, not only when I am into the buying mode,but also to have a glimpse on all the new trendy stuff in stock.

Chumbak  store is like a little wonderland with so many cute little things in vibrant colours. They have a 70 percent discount going on a lot of stuff and some of these are ones that I have bought previously without sale, it’s the perfect time to grab them. A hard learned lesson 😦

Here are my favourite picks from Chumbak , both original and after-discount prices have been mentioned.

Stuff from Charles & Keith is like an heirloom possession and the brand is a big source of inspiration for me to save some money and buy their products which are a sheer delight. This was one of the most unexpected surprises that I have ever encountered, when the saleslady at the store apprised us of the fact that a 25-60 percent discount is going on a whole lot of things. It was music to my ears,I didn’t have any idea that Charles and Keith offers things on sale too. It’s the perfect time to own the bag/ sandals / sunglasses that you have been eyeing from long. I purchased sandals priced at approx 5000 rupees in 2000 bucks, couldn’t have asked for more. A separate post on what I bought soon 😉

Accessories : Tropical State Of Mind 😊

Pina Coladas by the beach, the cool evening breeze grazing your sun-kissed skin, watching the sun setting into the blushing sky, hearing the waves crash against the shore and lazing all day long; It is that time of the year when all you can dream of is escaping to a tropical paradise!

While we are stuck in our daily lives far from any tropical utopia, Chumbak’s “Tropical Collection” will put you right back in a “Tropical state of mind”. From footwear to jewelry, get ready to bring the tropical vibe into your everyday life.

I recently purchased the tropical state of mind watch from this collection. A good looking time-piece can make so much difference to any outfit. This watch can go with so many looks and it is a perfect reflection of my Goan state of mind, also it adds so so much sparkle to brighten my day. It is super economic too.

Here’s a list of my favourite stuff from the tropical collection at Chumbak

Go grab them 🙂
