The spa is located in the Tanmei Elazar province of North Israel and is run by Ada Barak.  She uses a variety of snakes like California and Florida King Snakes, Corn Snakes and Milk snakes for massaging. Her inspiration came from the belief that people would have only an initial inhibition. Once they find the physical contact of a snake to be soothing and stress relieving, they would love to go through the treatments. The snakes are of different sizes and the best part is that they all are non venomous varieties. A spa session is said to cost anything from above 80$.

Tip for buying colour cosmetics, especially foundation :
It is advisable to go to a stand alone store and try the products. This would help you to apply the product and step out in daylight and check the colour. The lights in the store are very deceptive.

Information Request

The makeup Gods and Goddesses have begun to show some mercy to us Indian beauties and beauty enthusiasts.  Many international brands have started trickling down to India. Yes, we all know that so many lovely brands are available in Delhi and Mumbai. But what about the cities down south?

I don’t intend to regionalize or to say that we are the deprived souls..never!!

In fact, today I got to know from a certain reader that Bourjois and its much hyped Healthy Mix foundation and concealer are available in Bangalore. Similarly, there are so many brands and products lying hidden in the different malls and shopping centres. But everyone doesn’t get to know about it.

To make it more convenient for all the beauty/make up lovers out here, I have decided to add a page to this blog with details of brands available in the major as well as minor cities and towns of India. This would be a mini directory for all of us, where you can find information on all the beauty brands in the Indian market.  But it is definitely not a single person’s job. I would like to request all my readers for information on this.Wherever in India you reside, do let me know about the brands available locally.

You may email me the details preferably in the following format:

Brand Name

Products available(not mandatory, but it would be nice if you could provide atleast some info)

Shop Name

Mall(if applicable)

Address

Contact no (optional..only if you happen to visit and get hold of any contact number)

I will create an new index blog just for this purpose and we can all have a ready reckoner for future reference.

Those who are interested can write in with the details.
