Update on Biotique Red Wood Naturally Tinted Mosituriser

Thank YouImage by jaredchapman via Flickr
I have to thank both Sarika & Lavanya for this. Thank you!

Some of you might remember that there was some debate on the shades available. Lavanya had mentioned then in comments  that Olive is the lightest, followed by Peach and then Rose.

Sarika corroborated this last night. She uses this product and luckily for her, the store had testers when she bought this.

I hope this helps those of you who go shopping for this product and land up in a store w/o testers.

  1. Thanks for the update Tanveer..

    The shops in Bangalore(atleast the 3 outlets I visited) did not even have the product, leave alone a tester..But will keep in mind if I ever come across these here..

    Biotique..are you listening?? Ladies in bangalore need you here :-)

  2. Poorinma - Even I visited 3 Health & Glows which are in koramangala and Garuda mall. When I enquired for tinited moisturiser, they were starring at me as if I asked them something wrong ;) Then I explained them about the new product launches. They said it may take months time to hit the bangalore store.Will keep u updated if I find anywhere...

  3. Nice to see ppl help eachother out - A shout out to all these companies- Do get ur systems in place b4 u go 4 a launch!!

    You are most Welcome, Tanveer Madam :)

  5. @Poornima & Vidhya: Frankly I am shocked! This is an homegrown Indian Brand, how can it take so long for it to arrive in a major metro! They shd start online retailing if it is so tough for them to set up a logistics network..

    @Simran: I agree, there is so much disparity across the country in terms of availability!

    @Lavanya: Thks again :D

  6. @ Vidhya : Today I had gone to more than one H&G and nobody seems to know abt this product. But...they did have a product brochure which clearly featured this..

    And..worst part..The SA at H&G in Forum, Kormangla told me that they will not be getting this product at all. I asked her why and she said "This product is not going to be updated in my shop Ma'm, since the company will not be sending it here."

    My reaction : Shocked!!!

    @Tanveer : This is teh condition in Bangalore dear...I am totally P'ed off

  7. Heh heh...looks like I'm going to be the official makeup spotter for bangalore ;)

    Saw biotique tinted moisturiser in SPAR supermarket on bannerghatta road. Also, Star Bazaar has a whole shelf for Biotique so they might have the tinted moisturiser too. The shelf is right at the end, near the checkout counters, which makes it easy to miss :p

    Only drawback with buying makeup in supermarkets is that the stocks run out soon and take some time to replenish. Also, no testers available :|

  8. It is available in Spar?? OMG..That would be the last place where someone looks for a cosmetic item and that too such a product. Anyways..Thank you so much for the information :-)

    And yes, you can be an official product spotter for Blr haha

  9. @Jewel: Thks a lot for sharing information. U r officially our makeup spotter for B'lore.

    @Vidhya & Poornima: I hope u r able to locate this now. Maybe there is some issue b/w the managements of H&G and Biotique, try looking in regular malls - I too have spotted this in places like Star Bazaar.

  10. Hmmmm ... Rose looks still kinda whitish on me !!! Am I that dark or is it just that it didn t suit me ?! Sometimes my skin does turn oily so i really dunno ... anyways I ll try diluting and applying ...

  11. Hi Tanveer,
    Hi, I am dusky and after reading reviews here, I went and bought biotique tinted moisturizer-Rose. Till now I have been using Garnier sun control mosituriser and I liked it, but it does make my face look shiny. But with this one, my face looks totally matte!! Also it makes me look darker!!! I thought I am pretty dark, so would you suggest that I try peach since it is slightly less dark?

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…
