Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream Review

By Meghna Kar


"The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world" is a famous phrase which throws light upon the fact that a woman has to play multiple roles in her day-to-day life. The dynamic avatars that she has to don is absolutely unimaginable. But these mighty hands which are engaged in numerous activities throughout the day, often get the least attention when it comes to daily care regime. Is the monthly manicure routine enough to tend for those hard working and care deprived hands? I am sure the answer is no. But how often do we moisturize them? Every two or three days? Once a week? The response is varied. Personally, I feel it should be every single day! Being the daughter of a working mother, I have always seen her handling her work life and family life with equal elan. Never did she miss out on her pre-office and bedtime routine of moisturizing her hands. No wonder those care giving hands remained soft and supple even after enduring a long day of hard work. When Fabindia launched its range of hand creams, I had the pleasure of gifting her Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream for her birthday. Little did I know that soon I would be lured by this simple yet amazing hand cream. Do you want to know why? Read on!

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Paparazzi Purple (606) Review

By Amrita Priyadarsini


Hello sparkles! What did you do this weekend? It was my hubby's birthday and so I planned a little surprise for him. Speaking of surprises, I was pleasantly surprised to find Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Paparazzi Purple in my Diva Likes haul. I am someone who loves lighter shades on nails like silvers, gold or turquoise. But this was my first time to try a dark purple color shade. I am a glitter person and I love the effects they create on nails. I am also a nail art addict. There was time during my MBA at Bradford when people would suggest me to start up my own nail art bar. My dearest friend Laura was the first one to advise me to do nails for both the hands. Else I only used to paint my left hand as I had really short nails in my right hand. Coming to Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Paparazzi Purple, do read ahead to know if this shade dazzled my little world or not.

Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day Creme With Sunscreens Review

By Divya Singh


Hey my favorite people! There is a proverb which says "The best fish swim near the bottom". It means that the best things are hard to come by. The same holds good in the life of people like us, who are constantly in search of best beauty products. We at Diva Likes, are always trying new things so that we can bring the best to our readers. These days I am in search of a good day creme. I have realized that I have been neglecting my skin off late and especially not using sunscreen. It is better to realize it late than never. Last time I was here with the review of Garnier Fair Miracle 2-in-1 Fairness Cream and today I have another whitening cream to review for you all. I am still using Garnier Fair Miracle 2-in-1 Fairness Cream but it just provides me instant result and in the long run I haven't experienced anything more than this. Recently I had gone for some grocery shopping and bought for myself Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day Creme With Sunscreens. I am already using their compact powder and face wash. So I thought of trying this one too as the claims are very tall in the carton. So let's move with the detailed review and see how it worked.

Trip To Muthathi, Karnataka

By Kriti Mazumdar

Right after a three month IT project, I was in desperate need of a break. But a day's off was all that was sanctioned to me. So I decided to club it with a weekend and find respite from the drudgery of routine life. Now the question was where do I go to spend a weekend around Bangalore? There were plenty of places jumping out at me from the google pages, but I just wanted to be lost in some place which would not be thronging with weekend tourists. And that's when my friend suggested to me a tiny village Muthathi, situated on the banks of river Kaveri. It is surrounded by dense forest area which includes different wildlife. This is definitely a place to opt for when we are fed up with the busy city life. It was about 100 kms from Bangalore and off we go to enjoy the beautiful Muthathi.

Monsoon Experience In Wayanad, Kerala

By Kriti Mazumdar

With the monsoons hitting in with full vigor, I thought it would be a great idea to leave the humdrum of Bangalore and nestle amid nature. No sooner had I voiced the thought with my parents, they lapped up the idea. Wayanad is located in God's Own Country, Kerala. It is a small but popular hill station with many tourist attractions. During the monsoon season, the place looks amazingly beautiful with a new burst of flora. And that is the reason I picked this place for our little monsoon break.
