BEAUTY | CAPRI ALOE NURTURE SOAP

Capri Soap - *PR Sample

2 new Aloe-Nurture Moisturizing bars

Contents of Goody Bag


One fine day, a parcel reached my doorstep. You know those when you wake up and you have a mail waiting for you and you do that little dance of joy? I am sure you all have experienced that sheer excitement. What did it contain? Capri's latest Aloe-Nurture moisturizing soaps!

This all natural soap ensures that no chemicals go onto your skin and only organic ingredients are in play. This moisturizing bar has honey and milk protein in it which helps make you skin silky smooth. I have to say, it really does feel like silky smooth due to the milk proteins in it as it claims, so 10 points for that! Also, what I love about this soap is the smell of it. Before I actually started using it, it was sitting under my desk for a while (after I had pictured it, so one was open), my room smelled amazing. Every time I sat on my laptop or for studying, it refreshed me with the smell of honey in it.

We constantly are using many chemical products on ourselves, quite a few times daily on our skin, so it is a welcome to add something natural in the routine. Capri is focusing with this new launch on the natural beauty factor and really who wouldn't like to be just that? Though personally I do not use soap on my face, so I did not venture into that but did use it on my hands and body to see how it performs. But I think it is  worth trying out for those of you who do so.

The package was just too beautifully wrapped (see pictures on my Instagram)  and also included apart from two soap bar a beautiful soap box, a pack of 10 tealight candles and a SweetTouch nail polish in Yellow.

This product is available in the market at PKR 42.00 plus GST with a net weight of 115g. Here is to confidence of our natural beauty!

Have you tried this product or any other from Capri? Do let me know how you found it to be?

*The product was a PR Sample and part of a care package but in no way did influence the review and is only the honest review of the product. Read full disclosure.

LifeStyle | What Is In My Bag?

The Bag.
Wallets/Cards/USB

Stationery/Calculator/Notebook
Beauty Section.
All thing tech and Misc.

An Overview.

The contents of one's bag have always been something I am curious about (nosy little girl!) For me these contents in anyone's bag give the most appropriate picture as to what the person really loves and uses on a daily basis. It tells you all you'll ever need to know about anyone. So today, I decided to share the contents of my own bag. (Judge away!)

As I am a university student, a lot of things you see are student-life related but that just gives you how I organize my bag for all-purposes an answer too. Great, no? The most important thing missing in these pictures above, though, are my registers and lectures. I keep a separate folder for that purpose and so do not really carry it bag. Anyways, let's dive in, shall we?

The first thing that you'll notice is my rather huge wallet. I like to keep extra cash around with me for emergency situations and always end up feeling and the purpose of it is well really everyone knows. Mine is filled with cards of my university and other important cash-ins. USBs are kind of a must and I like to carry around two of those with me at all times. You just never know how may it be of use and has saved my life at more than few instances.

What girl doesn't love good stationary? I know I do! Mickey Mouse pencils and tools box? Yes please. Also, I love that tiny lil lion pencil-top. Given, I am a business student, a scientific calculator is a must thing and one obviously needs notebooks. I use this to jot down any blog ideas or clever lingo that I might come up with or if I have to pen down any important details. My bag has to got to have a spare notebook. It's a perk if there Audrey or Marilyn looking at you like a god-mother.

I am someone who loves to over-pack things, if you haven't realized by now. There is this dire need of all the ifs that need be covered. I always keep charging cords for my Samsung Galaxy phone(s), did I mention my phone(s)? They are kiiind of any bag essential item and also a PowerBank - more on this in a separate post when I try my hand at tech blogging, kinda. It is so handy and has saved my unworthy behind more times than I can count.

Lastly, phew, my bag contains few, ahem, things on the beauty and personal care front. I need to have a deodorant with me be it of any kind. The heat is just unbearable and it simply stinks at times. Body sprays are just too important to be spared from a bag's contents. Talking of the heat, I keep gloves in my bag too, just as a handy to keep my hands safe of the ever so generous sun that has tanned my skin color 3 shades easy. Hair ties, before I forget and they go MIA on me for not mentioning them, you know they can and do all the time. #GirlProblems

Okay, I lied. The real last item in my 'things in my bag' list is a beauty bag. But I am not going into details of this one at the moment and will have a detailed separate post to indulge your juices in. *Takes a deep long breath*

Do share what are your bag essentials and if there are things you keep around just-in-case like me! Avenge me with your long stories! ;)
