Khadi Moisturising Cream with Rose & Aloe Vera - Review

What it claims: Gives Essential Minerals & Vitamins to the skin. Apply as regularly as needed.

Ingredients
  • Rose: It has excellent emollient and hydrating properties, which helps the skin to stay soft and properly moisturized and fight any dryness and dehydration. The stimulating action of it on the other hand is a boon for fighting aging and maintaining a soft, dewy and youthful complexion.
  • Aloe Vera: Skin care products with aloe vera increase the availability of oxygen to the skin and thereby aid synthesis and strength of the skin tissues.
  • Neem Patra: a very good moisturiser, it is also antibacterial and helps speed up wound healing
  • Tulsi (Holy Basil): high in antioxidants like Vitamin C, this helps heal sun and environmental damage incurred by the skin
  • Daruharida (Berberis Aristata): antiseptic, prevents infection. Helps calm inflamed skin.
  • Haldi (Turmeric): Turmeric removes fine lines, blackheads and dark circles under the eyes. Some manufacturers include turmeric in their products for its ability to lighten skin. Turmeric is able to decrease the activity of melanocytes (pigment producing cells) and it is already included in formulations for this reason
  • Bramhi patra: Stimulates new cell generation
  • Cream base & preservatives
Quantity: 210 ml bottle (have forgotten the price now).

Available: Khadi centre at Irla

Use within 2 years of manufacturing

Pros

1. What would it feel like if you combined the lightness and non-oiliness of a lotion with the nourishing power of a cream for dry skin? Goddess - Sent right?? Well, this is it. It is a cream as per the label, but is so light and non-oily that I actually thought it was a lotion until I carefully read its label. It absorbs instantly into the skin but is so nourishing that 2 drops in the morning take me through the entire day without need for replenishment.

Perfect for this hot summer, when my dry skin needs intense nourishing but without the oiliness.

2. Perfect as base for makeup. Thanks to its non-oily nature, it is a perfect base for makeup.

3. This light pink lotion smells really nice - of roses, but tempered with something else I can't identify.

4. Very good for dry skin - I started to use this when I came back from a trip - sun burnt with raw, dry patches. Within 3 hours of applying this, my skin had started to recover and look normal again.

5. The flip cap bottle ensures minimum contamination of product during usage.

Cons
1. The ingredient listing is not complete - it does not give any % for the constituents

2. Difficult to locate. Khadi products can be notoriously difficult to find. Sometimes they go out of stock for months on end. I have been looking for their honey - rose red colored face wash since the last 4 months with no success.

Will I repurchase: If I can find this, yes!

This has become an essential part of my morning routine these summers. I am actually very happy with the quality of Khadi products. They are a little expensive, but the are amazing for the skin.

  11. Hey, your blog is too good.. All your reviews are very helpful. It is winter now in Chennai(I live in Chennai). After a long search, I bought Vasaline total moisture (Body lotion). I am now using it. It works well on me, since i have extremely dry skin on my body! I am tired of searching for organic soaps in Chennai. No soap suited me well. After my bath i feel tight and dry! I am badly in need of your help to choose a hand-made natural soap for my EXTREME DRY skin. Please do reply me. Thank you..

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…
