1. Super gentle against the skin, this facewash is one of the gentlest ones that I have tried. It doesn't dry out my skin at all.

2. I liked that this product listed all the ingredients with quantities, unlike other khadi products which mention only some mysterious key ingredients.

3. Smells pleasant, not overbearing. Also it does not leave a film on the skin upon rinsing unlike other heavy face washes.


1. Notoriously difficult to locate. I was recommended this facewash by friend, but it took me a good 8 months before this was back in stock. Apparently it is very popular.

2. The packaging sucks. It is a struggle to open the flip cap everyday, invariably I end up either breaking a nail or scratching myself. I plan to transfer this to something less violent.

Will I repurchase: Yes.

Have you tried any Khadi face washes?


  1. Hi Tanveer, great review as usual. The ingredient list sound cool. Could you please let me know why to locate it in delhi or kolkata? Hope you had a great diwali. Thanks :)

  2. i have never tried any of khadi products..

  3. I have never seen this one. but will definitely look out for this cleanser. is it good for oily skin?

  4. you've seriously tempted me to try khadi products now.. 110 bucks for all that!

  5. I have likd all the Khadi products I have used till now but they are soooo damn difficult to find here :( I will surely pick this up if I manage to find it...where did u buy it from?

    n ya do transfer this to a more less violent container soon :D

  6. as said they r difficult to find though now i have started seeing them in Bog Bazaar but i thought they must be outdated so didnt check on them.

  7. Hi Tanveer...

    So where did you manage to locate this bottle?? Dare we ask??


  8. Any idea where Khadi products are available in Chennai??? I would love to try this sometime. My skin has been drying out BIG time :(

  9. @BeautyDiva: Thks! I know, it seems all natural & all. I hope it actually is :)
    I am not sure where you can get this in Delhi or Kolkatta. The bottle has a helpline number on it. I’ll add it to this review later today. You can maybe call on that & find out??

    @Retnu: Awww… I love their soaps :)

    @IMW: No clue whether this will suit oily skin. The friend who recommened this to be has combination skin with oily T zone. It suited her.

    @Rima: I know, the ingredient list almost reads like a Lush product na!

    @HD: Beauty Centre at Khar used to stock the entire Khadi line earlier, this face wash was available there then. Now they only stock the soaps. I bought this from the Khadi store at Irla in the Alfa lane, Vile Parle. They have a annual exhibition/sale around Diwali time – so I finally found this there. But there is also a Khadi store there that sells their line all year round.

    @Anamika: They are notoriously difficult to find. These products have the manufacturing date printed on the bottom. You could check that out. They mostly have a shelf life of 2 years.

    Thks, glad u liked the towels.

    @Brenda: I got this in a sale at the Khadi centre in Irla, Vile Parle W

    @Appu: I have a hard time finding these in Mumbai, so I have really no clue about Chennai. You could try Ponds or Himalaya or Neutrogena in the mean time.

  10. Tanveer, the helpline no. is of no use...I've tried :(

  11. Will hunt for this one.It's one hell of a mission to hunt down khadi stuff :)

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…
