Biotique Coconut Milk Cream Review

The fight against pimples and acne continues. Those who die fighting valiantly leave behind scar on face as memory. Which I could do without.


Am very skeptical of all fairness creams on market as once saw documentary on Discovery Channel on fairness lotions that caused cancer and all such gory stuff. Supposedly these creams contain mercury based products that are not good. that left women scarred and with black patches on their faces.

Two years ago I had tried Garnier Light Cream for my acne marks. It was very effective and most of my acne marks were lightened considerably, some even disappeared. After which I stopped using it, as mission was accomplished.
Two years hence, after an MBA, involving crazy schedules and even crazier diet I am back on square one with new casualties of the acne war. I went back to trusty Garnier


They have changed the composition. Instead of the earlier Mulberry Extract, it now contains Long Dan Extract (whatever that is). Here's the deal, even after three weeks of using it, there were no results. (the company claims to lighten spots from week 1 itself) In fact I began to breakout even more, skin became patchy, blotched and dull - lookingl. Disappointed and discouraged, I stopped using it.

A friend told me about Biotique's Coconut Milk Cream which his mom used regularly and loved. So dropped by NBC from work as they offer 15% discount on Biotique. (Original price is 180 bucks)
And Ladies, this thing rocks!

It contains extracts of

It is creamy white and thick in texture, to be applied in the night after cleansing (but before moisturising), but I feel that this also doubles up as an excellent moisturiser, so you may skip a lotion on top.

Only issue being that it needs to be rubbed in a lot and even then it is not absorbed thoroughly. In the morning a white layer is still visible on face. I don't know if I am applying too much or if it is designed to work from outside the skin surface and not within.

Also it tingles initially.

But this product is true to it's promise, it considerably reduces blemishes, makes skin soft and radiant, over time that is. Do not use this if you are looking for instant results. You will be using this for over a month before any visible change is seen.

It is not oily at all but the texture is quite thick. And if you have dry skin, it also doubles up as a heavy duty moisturiser for the night. Though you can apply moisturiser on top,I skip it. It is mild enough to use around the eyes, unlike Garnier and other products that are bad for the sensitive skin there. It is also anti-bacterial and is not comodogenic.

Overall: This product is a true winner and I think a must for anyone looking for radiant skin. Better than smearing chemicals on your face for a pasty white look, it is better to just get rid of your blemishes and moisturise for soft skin.

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…
