Aroma Magic Mineral Glow Scrub - Review

What it claims: This face and body scrub takes away layers of dulling cells and black heads.Cleans pores and makes skin look fresh and glowing. The skin appears lighter, smoother and looks healthier.Also removes fine lines and wrinkles.It increases blood circulation.Helps to regenerate new cells.

Directions: Apply onto face and body After 10 minutes, massage and wipe off . Rinse off.

Ingredients: Corn, Almond, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Citrus extracts, trace elements of Zinc, Calcium & pure essential oils of Tea Tree, Rosemary, Thyme & Lavender.

Price: Rs. 80 for 60 gm tube

Pros:
1. This is by far the most gentle exfoliating scrub I have used till date. The exfoliant in this is a salt, it is very fine and granulated. Kind of like how a home made salt scrub would feel on the skin.
2. It leaves my skin baby soft. I was totally not expecting this. My skin is so soft after use, I can't stop touching it
3. Does not dry out the skin at all.
4. It seems to have helped cleanse my pores out. My skin is not feeling so dry these days and in fact since I began using this, I feel like my skin has normalised in terms of oil production
5. There are no instructions on how often we can use this. I use this every morning, in place of face wash and have not had any problems.
6. The price: good 60 grm sturdy tube for 80 bucks (I actually got this for Rs. 66 from Beauty Centre coz of the discount running there)
7. The packaging: No dipping fingers in tubs. A nifty squeeze tube that is easy to use.

Cons
1. The color, the smell, all remind me of my old chemistry lab from college. The color is a light green, very similar to the zinc salts I would be handed out for testing, and the upper notes do have a slight lemony scent, but that soon goes away to leave behind a lingering zinc-y smell. It is not offensive, but it is not the best smell either to linger on your face

Will I repurchase: The smell, not withstanding, yes I will. I don't have that sensitive a nose and for the amazingly soft baby skin I am willing to indulge in a little nostalgia from my BSc days. This is an amazing, extremely gentle scrub and I love the way my skin feels post this.

PS: They claim you can also use this for the body. I haven't done that, too madly in love with my TBS Bath Gloves & St Ives Vanilla wash. So Won't be able to comment on how it fairs for body skin.

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…
