Dove Soap... Falling standards???

Yes, Dove soap is sure as hell better than the soaps/bars in the market right now, leaves skin soft and is very good during winter as another Armour in the battle against flakiness.

But it's quality seems to have fallen, this Dove is not the same creamy moistury Dove I used 7 years ago, that Dove was so rich and creamy and lovely..

maybe they changed the composition to counter the complaints that the soap melted very easily and so barely lasted.

It has become a little harder now, but I feel it is after compromising on the moisture within.

What do you feel? Do you think that the quality has fallen?

BTW, please be careful and steer clear of Dove soap bars that that are sold at Dollar stores. They are all counterfeit products exported from China which is why they are cheaper..

  1. yes, the dove soap bar i used many years ago was extremely soft and moisturising. however, i prefer the newer albeit harder bar. it lasts longer, has the same fragrance, yet does not compromise too much on moisturising.

  2. Hey Rima, Thks for yr comment! Glad to know that you like the new harder version of Dove :D :D

    Unfortunately, it does not cut the ice for me as far as their promise on moisturization is concerned. We all have different skins that react in their own ways. I preferred the older Dove. :D

  3. i used dove in india & uk, as well! i feel its harder here compared to the indian one, might sound stupid, but thats wat i found :) it is not the same old messy dove :)

  4. yea Divija, the other day my friend & i were discussing the same... she has been using the german version, & this one is softer then da indian one.. I guess they alter it i every country.. But frankly I really don't like the Indian version at all..

  5. oh n i thot i was d only one who felt so..the moisturising effect has gone down a loot n i liked d old one better :( n yes i did find a difference in quality in d indian one n d imported one..

  6. even i found the difference b/w this n the one i used during schooling...aloevera dove(green package)one is gud..donno if its available in friend lovees it...

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…

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 …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
