Kara Makeup Removal Wipes - Review

What it claims: Kara makeup removal wipes is an effective way to remove all makeup from the face. It is enriched with lavender extract which cleanses and gives a relaxing effect to the skin while the seaweed extract revitalises and nourishes the skin. More importantly it is made from Birla Cellulose, a fibre that is 100% natural and bio-degradable

Key Ingredients: Aqua, Lauryl Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, PEG - 20 Methyl Glucose Sequestrate, Glycerine, Aloe vera gel, Lavender Extract, Seaweed Extract, Chelating Agent, Preservatives & Fragrance. Alcohol Free.

Price: Rs. 45 for 10 wipes.

Pros:

1. It takes off all makeup like a dream. 2-3 swipes over the most resistant liner and it all melts off.
2. The fabric of the tissue feels nice and soft against delicate under eye area, it also smells quite refreshing.
3. Does not dry out skin.

Cons:
1. This will not take off your waterproof mascara. It will start to melt it a little bit, but it involves too much tugging & pulling at the lashes and it won't dissolve it completely. You might end up with raccoon eyes and broken lashes.
2. The pack does tend to dry out after 6 to 8 weeks of opening.

Will I re-purchase: For occasional use, yes. It is convenient to carry this, and it is very useful if you have a social engagement after office. Just wipe off old makeup, and apply a fresh layer. This is also very good in case some makeup emergency happens when touching up while travelling or saving time by cleansing on your way back from a function.

However do keep in mind that makeup removal tissues are not a complete solution by themselves to remove makeup. It is always better to follow up with a splash of water or use a toner like rosewater to ensure that pores don't get blocked.

  9. Wet wipes scare me a little because of the amount of tugging I have to do on my skin to get them to work.I would prefer cotton and rose water any day over wipes.But these can be a godsend during emergencies.

    @Appu: I know.. they have very exotic sounding ingredients!

    @CZ: Yea, waterproof mascaras are a different breed. Too tough for these tissues.

  13. Hi All

    I am the brand manager for Kara, and am happy to see so many positive reactions about the product.
    We will take each feedback and try to improve our products.
    However to clarify the oily skin after use of makeup remover wipe, we have added a gentle lotion on purpose in our Make Up Remover wipes, as makeup dries the skin and deoxidates it. The idea is to re-energize your skin as the makeup is being removed, hence the oily feel!

    Would urge all of you to try all variants of Kara, which are Sunscreen, Deep Pore Cleansing, Toning, Refreshing, moisturising and of course Makeup removal wipes.

    For summers, we would recommend refreshing and sunscreen wipes!

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…
