Pros:
1. This white, runny lotion, quite to my surprise, moisturises well. It absorbs quickly and hydrates for a good 5 -7 hours. I feel the need for a top up after that.

2. It smells real yummy! Very fruity :). The texture is light but moisturises well. It does not feel oily or sticky, and neither does it form a film or coat on the skin.

3. Has Shea butter & Cocoa butter. I generally break out with cocoa butter rich creams, surprisingly I didn't break out with this.

4. Very economically priced, as a result you can be really lavish when moisturising, no need to skimp.

Cons:
1. SPF value of sunscreens added to it has not been mentioned. For all that I know, it could be as low as SPF 2 or as high as SPF 20.

2. The moisturising effect on me did not last for 12 hours like the product claims. It lasts only for 6-7 hours on me. But then I do have dry skin and spend all my day in air-conditioning so that might be the reason for it

3. The product claims to contain the goodness of honey & avocado. If you go through the ingredient listings, you will see that these two products are listed at the end. Ingredients are always listed from maximum amount added, listed first and then on. By that logic, this product may contain too little of honey or avocado to do any good. Might be just a marketing ploy, one of those motivational/angel ingredients.

4. I didn't like the flip - top cover. The opening is too big and generally, if you are not careful or using this for the first time, a lot of lotion just comes gushing out. Much more than what is needed. Lakme of course suggests that we use dollops of it - I just use a 50p coin sized all over my face, neck and hands.

Will I recommend this: Yes, to normal & dry skinned gals on a budget. It is perfect for daytime lotion in mild winters. It won't leave your skin shiny or greasy looking and it does the job well. This is a big improvement over their peach milk moisturiser.

Have you tried this lotion?

This product was sent to me by the Company / PR for my consideration, that however, has not affected my review or opinion in any way.

  3. @Shuchita: They have another lotion in their range - Daily Glow Peach & Plum - I felt that was lighter than this one. Will be reviewing it soon, that might suit you better! :) Yea, that basket was really nice. I liked it so much I am still storing all these things in them :P

    @HD: Yea, it exceeded my expectations to tell you the truth :).. I didn't expect it to be this nice.

    Stuck in a small town with no skincare prdts - I would immediately buy this & use it without hesitation. Lakme has a great supply chain. I saw this entire range in Jabalpur - I was impressed ;)

    I think herbal, fruits, organic, natural are the new buzz words in marketing. I personally feel that the lotion is actually has a lot of chemicals - but it is being promoted like it contains nothing but fruits.

  4. You've started putting up photos. Me likes.

    I agree with you - a lot of brands advertise their products as having some awesome natural ingredient, even if it is in the least amount possible. I find this happening across several brands & it's really annoying! Another annoyance is that the SPF factor is not mentioned.

    In any case, I'm a bit J that there are so many awesome new products for dry skinned gals. Can't wait for your review of the daily glow one.

  5. @Poohkie: Yea, hubby got a new camera for Diwali & the blog is benefitting from it. Though I am not as good as Cynthia & the rest at pics & swatches. :)

    I find that so irritating - false, misleading advertising! "Fortified with the goodness of Blah, blah" - when u read the ingredient list it is just a bunch of chemicals with natural stuff right at the bottom with preservatives..

    Actually I think the sudden spurt of moisturisers has more to do with the upcoming winters than the concern for us dry skinned gals :)... I'll be reviewing the glow one after a week :)

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 …

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…
