If there is one thing you watch this womens day, make it this one ! Lupita Nyong’o – the best supporting actress at Oscars 2014 (who by the way looked stunning in her minimalist powder blue gown), gave an incredible speech on Real beauty the night before the Oscars. In India,  a country where there is an entire industry devoted to skin lightening and skin whitening, this speech is perhaps just as relevant as in Lupita’s context !


We have a ‘no whitening’ policy on P&B . We dont accept freebies that claim to lighten skin, we dont review them and frankly we also turn down a substantial amoun of money from brands who want to promote them. This speech just makes me stronger in my resolve to do that!

Happy Women’s Day P&B Readers !
