Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser - Review


I take on another favourite, popular moisturiser today - Lakme Peach Milk Moisturizer.

It claims:
Formulated with natural peach extracts, Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser leaves your skin radiantly soft.
Natural peach extract contains Vitamins and Pectin which tone and hydrate skin, giving it a natural glow.
AHA's and Antioxidants (Vitamin C and E) work to condition and rejuvenate your skin.

Key Ingredients: Tocopheryl Acetate (Vit. E Acetate), Tocopherol (Vit. E), Peach (Prunus Persica) Extract.”


Pros:
1. Light and absorbs easily into the skin
2. Light fragrance
3. Quite economical and available in a number of sizes
4. Moisturizes hands/feet quite well. Sinks in quickly.

Cons:
1. Just so-so. Some people seem to swear by it. It was really not "The Holy Grail Moisturizer" for me.
2. Incomplete list of ingredients on the package. I find it hard to believe that this moisturizer comprises only these 3 innocent ingredients. 
3. No added benefits of spf protection. 

Will I re-purchase: Maybe. I may just keep it around as a basic moisturizer to, you know, use in emergencies (like pulling out tight finger rings) or for the hands, arms & legs. But not for the face. Maybe I am too demanding. I just think that this should offer me a little more, like spf. 

Promotional offer: Lakme has an offer going on where they are giving out free lip glosses on purchase of all their moisturizers. 

Price: 60ml, Rs. 55

  2. Tanveer, to b honest; I hate the scent of this! It was like rotten tomatoes :) so tossed it out!
    Staying power is ok, but I cant imagine that scent on me. The consistency is kinda runny, wat do u say? Thats quite a promotion, girlie :) Sad part is I cant get hold :(

  3. I have been using this moisturizer for years now and I am quite addicted to it. :) It works great as a basic moisturizer on my skin and yes, ingredients transparency has always been an issue with all Lakme's products. I wonder why are they so secretive about it. There are better products around that don't mind listing a full list. I just got over with my moisturizer bottle. Waiting to buy it with the free lipgloss.

    Regarding giving away the free lipgloss- There were a lot of issues about their sqaured shaped lipgloss packaging. The lipgloss was leaking badly from the containers. So I guess they are clearing the stock. Otherwise it does not make sense to give an expensive lipgloss free with such a cheaper product.

  4. I agree with Rati, Tanvi. Many people complained of the lip gloss leakage. Is it the same one they r trying to give away. Still, I dont mind trying. I wont use them for travel, may be make them stand in a gloss rack :) thanq rati for the info :)

  7. @ Rati & Divija: Hey Rati!! thks for tht great bit of investigation, and inference! I think u r absolutely right..

    Coz even i cld not understand why they are giving away such expensive lip glosses with moisturizers half their value.. But u cracked it Rati & Divija..

    Frankly I have two-three of these lip glosses.. I really like the no. 21 lip gloss & carry it with me all the time in my purse.. Have never had this issue of leakage.. But know tht i know frm u guys tht it can happen, I guess i'll just poly-pack it separately...

  9. Tanveer,

    I was myself laughing after reading Divija's comment. :P I love the moisturizer and I was consoling myself by thinking that since I have never smelled rotten tomatoes so it's okay, I can live with the smell. ROFL!

    I also have two of the Lakme's lipglosses and so far they haven't leaked. But I take an extra bit of precaution and carry them in a poly.

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…
