Bathing Beauty: Babi Ahluwalia of Sachin + Babi
Babi Ahluwalia is one-half of the design duo that makes up Sachin + Babi. The other half just so happens to be her designer hubby, Sachin Ahluwalia (hence the name of the ready-to-wear contemporary line). With decorative dresses, texturized blouses and beautifully tailored jackets, Sachin + Babi is all about the chicness, all of the time. Celebrities like Emma Stone, Jennifer Lopez, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Drew Barrymore and Kat Sadler are just a few of Hollywood’s fashionistas sporting the designs.
Babi is both beautiful and practical when it comes to her style. Her fashion sense is sophisticated yet comfortable, while her beauty routine is simple and unpretentious. Babi’s chestnut billowing mane, perfect skin tone and soulful eyes round out her unique beauty.
Here, the tools and products that Babi covets:
What are your top 5, can’t-live-without products?
1 – Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer – I just love it. Tara Harper uses all natural ingredients creating a pure and simple product. The shelf life is short because she does not use preservatives but it is well worth it.
2 – Kiehl’s Lip Balm – A tube of Kiehl’s in your handbag is priceless, especially in winter. The product is simple but the quality and ingredients are so good.
3 – Forest Essentials Moisture Replenishing Bath & Shower Oil Madurai Jasmine & Mogra – You can only purchase this product in India; I love it for its purity and beautiful scent.
4 – Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler – It’s simply the best.
5 – Chanel Lipglossimer in Wild Rose – It’s such a great pick me up and a very nice indulgence.
What is your all-time favorite product?
Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum . Her commitment to all-natural products is inspiring and she creates a great, clean and pure product.
Favorite hair product?
MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream – With all of the blow outs and frequent color, it really rescues my hair!
Favorite body product?
Right now am loving The Body Shop’s glycerine soap (in bar or liquid form) in their great crisp citrus scent.
Favorite beauty secret you’ve picked up along the way?
Always slather on a face pack the night before an important day. I like any good replenishing moisture mask from Shahnaz Husain or Kiehl’s Algae Mask depending on what’s in the bathroom cabinet!
Beauty icon you admire?
Maharani Gayatria Devi of Jaipur. She had such regal elegance and a magnetic personality.
