Aroma Magic Chocolate Cream Pack - Review

What it Claims: The coco extract in this contain anti-oxidants, multi vitamins and essential oils that help nourish, lighten and revitalize the skin. It moisturizes to allow deep penetration of age defying nutrients. For all Skin Types.

Directions for use:

Apply onto face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off.

Ingredients:

Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Honey, extract of Nutmeg & Clove and pure essential oils of Orange, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang and Frankincense.

Price: Rs. 225 for 50 Gms

Pros:

1. This smells really nice. It is not that sickening synthetic chocolate smell that you will find in a lot of lip balms and glosses, but a deeper more refined natural fragrance. And the smell lingers on for quite some time even after you wash off the pack. This is a delight for the senses!

2. This is cream pack, not powder. I tend to prefer cream packs because I feel that they suit my dry skin better as opposed to powder packs that dry up.

3. It softens my skin to quite some extent, calms it down. Also I have never experienced any burning or stinging sensation with this pack. It is quite mild enough for daily use. And the brown color does not stain clothes or the skin.

4. Coco Butter has the highest known source of antioxidants in the world and is known to draw out impurities. Beeswax and Jojoba Oil both help strengthen the skin's natural oil production and retard moisture loss. Honey is skin softener. Nutmeg with Honey helps to treat blackheads and acne scars. Clove prevents infection. The essential oils of Orange, Rose, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang and Frankincense all help to balance dry and mature skin.

Cons

1. The packaging in a tub. I would prefer this in a tube. It just seems too exposed to air with all those antioxidants.

2. The effect of the pack is just so -so. It is good, but not mind blowing great.

Re-Purchase: Yes! This is a major indulgence and treat for me these days. It acts as a thick creamy but non-oily moisturiser for my dry skin.
DIY Tip: Btw, this is pretty easy pack to make at home. Just mix heaped spoonful of coco powder with honey and warm to hot skim milk (add some drops of cream if you have dry skin) to make a paste. Apply and wash off after 20 mins. You can also add alma powder to boost the antioxidant (Vit C) content.

  14. Hi Tanveer,

    This is one brand that somehow freaks me out with its packaging. I keep hearing nice things about it, but the packaging is tacky and keep feeling that am going to end up with a skin reaction. But still want to pick up something from them to try....any suggestions? Also where does when get these products? Also i cant seem to sign in using wordpress... :(

  15. @Anamika: LOL! Yea, the packaging is quite basic :).. You could try their mineral salt scrub to start off with, but honestly, if you feel uncomfortable using the brand then just don't use it because others are saying something.

    You will get aroma magic at beauty centre as well as most general beauty stores as well.

    As for wordpress sign-in, I don't think Blogger offers that functionality hence the issue.

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…

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…
