Streetwear Mascara - Review

Eyelashes & MascaraImage by Roomic Cube via Flickr
This is a very late review. I had bought Streetwear Mascara in May 2008. I was cleaning my make-up stash (to make way for more :-D) when I came across this tube.

1. Not very expensive.. Although I don't remember the price now. But it was decently priced somewhere between 150 & 250 Rs.
2. Intense Black color that is waterproof.
3. Good quantity. Nice thick fat tube.

1. This is a horrible mascara. It does nothing. No volumising. No lenghtening. Nothing. It just clumps together and glues all the eyelashes together. So you actually end up with pyramid eyelashes. (separate at the base, glued at the tips- see the pic) & deposits clumps on your lashes so you have uneven clumped lashes.
2. The mascara wand is also very cumbersome to use. Thick & fat with very short bristles. It does not reach the smaller lashes & the lower lash.
3. The formula is goopy, stringy & clumps like mad. You have to clean the tip on the bottle opening or a tissue or else you end up with all the goop on your eyes. Plus it also flakes after a few hours.

Price: Sorry, have forgotten

Will I buy again: No way! This was a complete waste of money & was one of the first things I threw away when cleaning my stash. Considering that Streetwear is owned by Revlon, this is a very sub-standard mascara from their stable. Also for such a big brand, they have no website, so I could not put up a picture of the tube.

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…
