Khadi Bubble Bath and Shower Gel - Review

It claims: an antiseptic herbal preparation that keeps the body free from all skin problems. Its herbal extracts and aromatic essential oils keep the skin soft, smooth and silky with a natural glow
Ingredients: Calendula, Chamomile, Neem, Red Sandalwood, Jojoba Oil, Lanolin Oil, Water, Preservatives
Price: Rs. 180 /- for 210 ml bottle
1.      A very good body wash for my dry skin, it leaves behind a layer of moisture on the skin making it very soft and smooth to touch

2.      Does not dry out skin at all unlike soap

3.      Smells nice and lathers well

4.      Lasts long – I have had this one bottle for over a year now. I use it weekly  and it has not gotten spoilt as yet (unlike my Khadi Cream Sandalwood face pack which got spoilt in 3 months of opening)
1.      It leaves behind a veil of moisture on the skin – kind of like Dove – which some people don’t like.

2.      I don’t know how good this is as a bubble bath – never used it that way

3.      The packaging is just ok – a clear bottle with a flip cap. I have gotten very used to body washes with pumps and find this a little cumbersome to use. 

4.      I think the ingredient list is incomplete – I cannot understand how a product only full of herbal extracts and oils would lather so well, and they have also not given the quantities of the ingredients. They have clearly left out the unsavory ingredients like lathering agents as they want to emphasize only on the natural ingredients, which I think is unfair. But then until the law changes in India, we’ll just have to wait. 
5. Lanolin Oil is derived from wool that is sheared off sheep. Those of you who are against using products that have ingredients derived from animals, may want to keep this mind as the pack does not indicate if this lanolin is natural or synthetic.

Would I buy this again: Yes, this is one of the best body washes that I have tried and ranks right up there for me along with my daily use – pH5.5 Johnson’s & Johnson’s body wash (which I also love). I generally use this once a week as my Sunday treat.
The only issue would be that this is little tough to locate, you could try the Khadi Bhavans in your city (there is one in Irla in Mumbai).

  1. This looks like a must try item.
    I have used their facewash and felt it was very refreshing.
    The Dove moisture feeling is good only during winters.Kinda helps my skin against being dried up.

  2. @GGG: My best friend raves about their facewash :D

    Haven't tried it yet myself. So many products to try, so little time *sigh*..

    I wish these things came in tiny bottles so we could try a whole lotta stuff quickly, & w/o guilting (yea, I made up this word. I have this habit of making up words) over stuff lying unused at home :D

  3. seems like a good body wash . will try it once em finish with my current batch of body washes :P

    Btw I hope all is fine with you.. Not heard frm u on yr blog since long :D

  5. I have use dtheir face wash for two years but now I am kinda bored of it. The products last really long, which I quite like. YOu are correct about the veil of moisture thing, it's the same with their face wash as well.

    Gotta try this one. :)

  13. @Kajal: It is good for winters, but it doesn't smell as nice as Dove. :D You may be able to order this online..

    It is really a pity, like u wld like this to be available in the US, I wld so like a lot of brands like Urban Decay to come to India.. Let's hope and wait :D

  14. I discovered your blog today and am in love already!

    You know, so far I always finished a bottle of body wash before opening another... but i love your idea of the special sunday body wash!

  15. @Anks: Thks a lot :).. I am glad u r liking the blog :-)..

    hehehhehe... I guess I am spoiling you now. I don't think there is a single prdt I know a singular bottle of, you know. I have like 2-3 face washes, 2-3 moisturisers, 2-3 blah blah & so on. Guess I need to also take a tip from you and buy when I need only :)

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…
