Beauty Drink

Just for you my dear Chatterboxes and of course for my skin, for two weeks and every day without fail I have been drinking a sachet of Shahnaz Herbals Beauty Drink and am ready with my review:

It’s great but WAY too sweet, like drinking a jalebi (deep fried syrup-laden sweet).

Using all natural ingredients, the beauty drink sachets are to be diluted in a glass of water.  The 100% natural ingredients include marigold, rose, saffron and pearl extract and beauty promises include youthful, radiant, glowing skin.  Since I started drinking them I have been visited in Delhi by two friends from the UK and both commented on how great my skin looks and both stocked up on the sachets before I waved them off.

I will be sending the company an email requesting a sugar-free version but of course as customer service doesn’t exist in India I know this request will fall on deaf ears.  Just brush your teeth an extra time as it really is cavity inducing sweetness but perhaps I am over reacting.

I will digress a little and remark that this has to be one of the few Shahnaz products that has a normal name… she has been around the beauty scene for decades and I am certain she was the inspiration behind Apple’s i-this and i-that as Shahnaz Hussain has been branding her range with her name with some hilarious consequences (apologies Princess Shahnaz but I have to) such as Shatone, Shalocks and even Shaweed, it’s all a bit much if shaknow what shamean…

However, I do love her, I went to a interview she did at the wonderful Nehru Centre in London and she was so charismatic and  intelligent with a great sense of wit and humour.  Harvard Business School ran a programme on her and there is hardly an award she has not won.

Her range is available everywhere in India and in London I think the only reliable source is the pharmacy in Selfridges, Oxford Street.
