Biotique Dandelion Face Vitaliser - Review

I had got this as a free gift with my haul of other Biotique products. I have used it for about a year now. Here is the lowdown: 

What the company says: A Face Vitaliser for Youthful Complexion. A rare combination of naturally occurring nutrients. Rich in Vitamin E and minerals like Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Potash and Sulphur. Also contains Nutmeg Oil that helps to stimulate the skin and ease wrinkles. Regular use ensures a youthful complexion. Useful for all types of skin.

Ingredients: 

  • Cydonia Oblonga Gel (Bihidana Luvab) 10% : Quince is a small tree found in the Caucasus region between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Quince is characterized by soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It also regulates the natural moisture content of the skin. High in mucilage, the outer coating of the seed is soothing, protective and helps hydrate the skin.
  • Lepidum Sativum Gel (Halo Luvab) 1.5% : The botanical name of candrasura is Lepiduum sativum, and it belongs to family Cruciferae. The seeds contain a volatile essential aromatic oil, the active principle and a fatty oil. Iodine, iron, phosphate, potash, salts, bitter substances, sulphur is obtained from the water-cress.it is used for treatment of various skin diseases
  • Myristica Fragrans Oil (Jaiphal Tail) 0.5%: Nutmeg oil imparts a glow to the skin.
  • Sacchromyces Yeast Ext. (Khameer Kwath) 8% : Yeast Extract, extremly rich in B vitamins & Amino Acids.
  • Prunus Amygdalus Oil (Badam Tail) 1% : Almond Oil
  • Helianthus Annus Oil (Surajmukhi Tail) 3% : Sunflower Oil
  • Lotion base Q.S. 

To Use: Add two to three drops of the dandelion face vitalizer to the Saffron Youth Dew and apply on the face.

Pros:
1. Very light. It is absorbed instantly by the skin.
2. Helps relive dry, itchy skin.
3. By it self, it goes on very smoothly on the skin without creating any oilness and can be used as a base for matt foundations, and so is an excellent substitute for oil-free moisturizers.

Cons: 
1. I did not see any particular improvement in my skin tone or texture despite using it for months. However I have to admit that I did not use it in conjunction with Saffron Dew. I used it with Biotique Morning Nectar as the sales girl assured me that it would work just as well.
2. Expensive: 35ml bottle costs 135 /- Rs.

Will I buy this again: No. I had much hopes from this product (even though I got it free), as it was so full of exotic ingredients and was also quite expensive. No such luck however. I suppose this is a good product for those just looking to calm down dry, inflammed skin, because it does that quite efficiently. However there was no change in my skin tone, texture, softness or glow for the better when using this product. It might be that this serum is a preventive measure rather a curative measure. In any case, since I saw no real results, I will not be purchasing this.

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…
