Biotique Almond Oil Soap & Orange Peel Soap - Reviews


Image Source
Biotique Almond Oil Soap
What it claims: Pure vegetable, transparent cleanser for dry and sensitive skin. The making of this cleanser involves the blending of traditional Ayurvedic formulae. Recommended by doctors for people with sensitive skin. This soap is formulated with Coconut Oil and Almond Oil, and is for skin that needs extra care. It leaves skin clean and healthy looking. Regular use makes the body free from skin problems like ringworm, scabies and dermatitis infection.


 


Ingredients:
  • Prunus amygdalus oil (Badam Tail) 0.2%
  • Crocos nucifera oil (Nariyal Tail) 28.0%
  • Melia Azadirachta oil (Neem Tail) 0.1%
  • Ricinus communis oil (Erand Tail) 3.5%
  • Curcuma Aromatica oil (Van haldi Tail) 0.02%
  • Saccharum officinarum (Ikshu Ras) 6.0%
  • Purified Water (Parishrut Jal) Q.S.
Price: Rs. 70 for 150 gms bar
 
Pros:
 
1. Doesn't dry out the skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean.
2. Has a very mild fragrance that is not overwhelming
3. The block is pretty sturdy, despite the huge amount of oil in the soap, it does not melt or turn mushy over time. Also the 150 gm bar lasts pretty long (2-3 months)
4. It claims to keep the skin free from all skin problems & I find that to be quite true, I am even able to use this on my face without any dryness.
 
Cons:
1. While it doesn't leave the skin feeling dry, I do wish it would moisturise a little bit more.  
 
Will I repurchase: I have, many times over already. I like the mild fragrance of this product and also that it doesn't dry out my skin. The only problem being that in winters I have to use a body lotion if I use this soap.

Biotique Orange Peel Exfoliating Soap 

 
What it claims: Pure vegetable cleanser. Skin energiser and exfoliator. This is a unique body soap with grains. A fine natural base is prepared and extracts of orange and its peel are skillfully added. The enzymes contained in the Orange Peel remove dead epithelial cells and deep cleanse the skin. The rubbing action helps speed up natural cell renewal leaving the skin fresher and younger looking. Regular use makes the body free from skin problems like ringworm, scabies and dermatitis infection. It leaves skin clean and healthy looking. It is hypo-allergenic and clinically tested.

Ingredients:
  • Citrus Aurantium Ext. (Santra Chhilka Kwath) 2.0%
  • Sapindus Trifoliatus Ext. (Ritha Kwath) 1.5%
  • Juglans Regia Grains (Akhrot Dana) 1.5%
  • Melia Azadirachta Ext. (Neem Chhal Kwath) 0.2%
  • Curcuma Longa Ext. (Haldi Kwath) 0.1%
  • Cleanser Base 84.0%
  • Purified Water (Parishrut Jal) Q.S
Price: Rs. 70 for 150 gms bar

Pros
1. Has a nice fresh citrus scent, that lasts pretty long on the skin
2. Like the bar above this too lasts pretty long without turning mushy

Cons
1. The so-called orange peel granules in this soap are very, very abrasive. They actually hurt my skin. I tried using this a couple of times thinking that maybe over time the moisture would soften the orange peel. But nothing of the sort happened. Finally I had to throw this away, almost unused because I just could not bear to use it.



Would I re-purchase: No way! This is just too abrasive to be used even on areas like the back or legs.

  3. I love soaps made for Spa use. They are hand made and most of the times achieve what they claim.

    I am actually liking both soaps if I go by your review. Second soap has a fragrance that lasts for soemtime and I always look for this property in shower gels, soaps etc. SO, i can try the second soap too. :)

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…
