After the phenomenal success of Lakmé Eyeconic Black Kajal, Lakmé brings home yet another international trend in the form of Lakmé Eyeconic White- an innovation that’s likely to break all codes of traditional kajal usage'. For years, the black kajal has remained an integral part of an Indian woman’s beauty regime, but the new Lakmé Eyeconic White promises to change the game for eye make-up. Spotted at several runways internationally this is a first of its kind introduction by Lakmé in India. Along with white, Lakmé also introduces four must-have shades of brown, blue, grey and green to the Eyeconic collection.

It comes with a waterproof formulation that allows one to be carefree while washing face or even travelling. It isdermatologically tested and is safe to apply with its two-way retractable twist-up format.

Talking about this new high-performance product, Arun Srinivas, VP Skin Care and Makeup, Lakmé says, “Indian women love to accentuate their eyes and the kajal remains an irreplaceable favourite. The success of Eyeconic Black encouraged us to look beyond the ordinary and we realize that our consumers are looking for subtle yet strong beauty statements that can enhance their overall look. Bearing this in mind, we now introduce the Eyeconic White – first of its kind innovation with a unique white packaging along with four more interesting shades that will take eye makeup to a new direction altogether.”

Speaking about the outstanding looks created for Eyeconic’s new range, Natasha Nischol, Lakmé Make-up Expert mentions, “The new range of Eyeconic is extremely unique and promising. White is an exciting color for the eyes, which can be used in the waterline to open up your eyes, or in the inner corners for the hint of brightness. Alternately you could also use it on the upper eye lids alone or with another color for a more dramatic effect. We have crafted some amazing looks with Kareena Kapoor to showcase the potential of this unusual color. Each color from the range is very unique and thoughtfully chosen to suit the Indian skin type. As a make-up professional, I am confident that this launch will surely create waves in the beauty and fashion scene in India.”

To get you started, Natasha Nischol has shared a cheat sheet with some quick eye looks to help you perfect the ‘white eye look’ this season.

DE-STRESSING Visit to The Four Fountains Spa, Malad

I was recently approached by the marketing team at The Four Fountains Spa for a session of therapy. I couldn’t ask for anything more at that moment of time because I was surrounded by heap load of work load. I jumped right at the opportunity and I am so glad I did…. Before I review my visit to the spa, let us know a bit about it

The Four Fountains Spa

The Four Fountains Spa:

The Four Fountains Spa is India's largest chain of affordable day spas and we are located across 10 cities. Their mission is to keep you stress-free, healthy through affordable spa therapies and bring the scientifically proven health benefits of spa therapies within reach of more and more Indians.

The upside point of this spa is that they have made every effort to ensure that the prices are kept as low as possible so that you can make regular therapies part of your wellness regimen. Most therapies are priced between Rs. 599 to Rs. 1599 and they also offer weekday discounts and membership discounts so that the spa therapies become even more affordable.
My Experience :
I was given a choice to book for an appointment to the outlet which was closest to my place, so I opted to go to the one located at Link Road Malad. I booked for an evening appointment and the staff was very prompt in confirming my appointment. They were also kind enough to call me and confirm the appointment date and time. The staff at the spa are very well trained and efficient. I was greeted by Sana, who manages the spa. She was kind enough to inform me the services which are classified as - De-stressing, De-Toxification, Immunity and Beauty. 
I opted for beauty treatment and choosed Lightening Facial which consisted of series of steps to gently exfoliate the skin on your face and massage it to give a glow. This therapy takes about one hour.
Before the treatment started, I was asked to fill out a questionnaire - I was surprised to find that they wanted to know my medical history before starting any treatment.

The ambiance of the place was very soothing and calming. I was introduced to the therapist who led me towards the treatment room.  The treatment rooms were tiny and small which got me a little claustrophobic - but then I requested the manager to let my friend accompany me into the room. They were little hesitant at the beginning but then they agreed - I was all set to start !!

The treatment room was a narrow rectangular room with an attached shower area. The therapist first instructed me to change into a disposable clothing which was offered by the spa and as soon as I was ready I was to alarm the bell so as to call the therapist back and start the session.

The treatment first started with the therapist performing a patch test of the products on my skin. The products did not cause any irritation to my skin which confirmed the products were safe to use on my skin. The entire session was very soothing and calm as the lighting of the room was dimmed down and the soothing music played in the background. The therapist was very professional and kept ensuring whether the environment of the room was comfortable enough for me.

The treatment started with the steps of cleansing, toning, massaging, scrubbing, steaming, application of mask and finally moisturising. The therapist was very efficient and skilled in massaging the skin.  I especially liked the mini- leg massage session I was offered while the facial mask was working it's charm. By the end of the session I was totally refreshed by the herbal tea that was offered to me. The facial treatment was wonderful and worth every penny - the glow of the facial lasted for 3 days after the treatment. I was also offered a feedback form at the end in order to share my experience with the spa. I was also offered a small complimentary tub of cooling de- stressing gel.
