We all know who an apothecary is; let’s know about some of the companies that fall under this category.

To start off, I would like to introduce my new love of a brand, for cosmetics –

C.O. Bigelow

This brand came into my notice when I walked into a “Bath and Body Works” store in the States. They have a wide range of products for both men and women, which one with even a sensitive skin as mine would love and find suitable. To start off, the best in their collection is the Rose Salve

You can apply is almost anywhere in your whole body and it’ll do wonders. I for one, apply it as a makeup base and also at night times after cleaning my face. It has helped me heal a lot of my dry skins.

Some of the other best things they have are their lip care products. I am in LOVE with their Lip Tints and balm range

The mentha flavor is so alluring, you feel fresh a li’l automatically 🙂

Not to forget their Lacquers, which I discovered once I walked into their store separately. Though they are a bit expensive, they are worth the shot.


The men’s range includes great skin care soaps and shaving creams and perfumes and on and on and on. There are so many more in their collections… You can already purchase few of these items from Amazon India; I hope they open a store soon.

Which takes me to one of the recent openings in India;


They’ve recently opened in Bangalore’s Phoenix Marketcity Mall and have already gotten largely promoted…

They seemed to have a lot of good and want-to-use products in the store and were performing skin tests like any other skin care outlet. Of the lot, I loved their gel based face moisturizer and the lightest weighted SPF 50 lotion. They are just amazing and controls your facial oils to a great extent.

I might walk into their store again soon to spend some good dough!

Near Future: I’ll be giving Province Apothecary a shot and write my reviews. For now, look forward to my blog on other natural made good skin care products and fragrances.

To start off with the floral beauties, the pic above was a random capture at the Ramada Hotel’s campus during my morning stroll (October’13). In those years, I did not have any knack for photography at all; hence you can make out the basic-ness 🙂

This up here was a capture from the terrace of my old office, during coffee with the team. This pic makes me think of the saying “every dark cloud, has a silver lining“.

This pic to me, depicts the various colors the sky can show us; old school, light Physics…

These stalactites are from a bat’s cave habitat, Lineville Caverns. May I warn any future visitors, this place can freeze you to your warmest core.

Nuff said about the sky and it’s colors… This a simple sunset (which I enjoy the most during my solo travels) on the beach front of Varkala, KL.
