Lakme Strawberry Creme - Review

Lakme Strawberry Creme

What it claims: A rich soft cream that pampers the skin with the luscious fragrance of fresh strawberries leaving it soft and delicately perfumed for hours
A combination of real strawberry extracts and active moisture balance ensure the optimal level of moisture for your skin.
It is fortified with UV filters to protect against skin damaging elements

Offers visibly soft, fragrant skin that glows with health.

Ingriedents: Glycerine, Dimethicone

1. Smells heavenly. If you, like me, are a fan of all things strawberry, this crème is going to intoxicate you with its smell
2. Non-greasy, non-oily feel though it does leave a feeling that something is sitting on your face. Kind of coats your skin
3. Very good for removing make-up (I just recently discovered this)

1. Does not seem to moisturize from within. It left a smooth film on my face, but my skin never felt soft or nourished. As a result for the period of one month that I used it, if I would forget to apply it, I would experience intense dryness & irritation all day long
2. Has mysterious UV filters with no SPF mentioned plus the active moisture balance all sounded like marketing gibberish to me.

Price: 50g, Rs. 100

Will I re-purchase: No. While it smells really very good, it is not moisturizing enough for me. I want a moisturiser that is so good and nourishes the skin so completely that even if I skip it on certain days, my skin can deal with it. As of right now I use it to remove make-up. Which I must say it does quite well.


  1. I have used Lakme's strawberry facewash but never liked it. It left my skin dry and strechy. However I love Lakme's peach milk moisturizer and winter care lotion. They have never failed me.

  2. Very good the point. I feel the same way about it..smells great but doesn't seem to moisturize from within. Will also try to remove makeup with it now that u mentioned it.

  3. @ Rati: Never used the facewash, so no idea. :D..
    Glad to know that you liked Peach Milk. Lots of ppl rave about it

    @CZ: Thks for the compliment sweetie! :D

  4. Hi Tanveer, I love ur blog to pieces! Feeling nostalgic, everything Indian :) am a follower, by the way. keep up the great work!

  5. ahh .. I used it long time before .. buh I will get it again ., specially wen lakme have special offer to get lipgloss free with any moisturizer :)

  6. @ Divija: Thks for stopping by & all the love! U made my day! I went through your blog as well! it is a very good read. *Addicted* :D

  7. @ Palak: Yea, they're having that offer.. seems funny to me tht they are giving away glosses tht are more expensive than the moisturizer free.. Try gloss no 21. I really like tht one.

  8. tanvi, i have gone through 2 of these, but long bak :) i still have the empty jars for some reason. i love this product, might try again :) thanq

  9. Hey Divija: Glad to know tht u liked it.. Even one of my close friend likes it a lot.. i guess we have our different skins to deal with :D

  10. I recently used this product and agree with your review. It just leaves a film on your skin and becomes sticky after sometime. And, it says that it has spf 15 but I do not know about that. But, I have noticed that all the moisturizers coming in market now a days are endowed with spf 15. I ordered olay sample and found that it was also kind of same and was more oily in fact and both these products were blocking my pores.

  11. @Sky: Thks :)

    I didn't like this at all. & Yea everything these days has SPF - even if it is something ridiculous like SPF 8 and all..

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…
