Lakme Fruit Moisture Strawberry, Kiwi & Passion Fruit Skin Renewal Night Creme - Review

What it claims: Envelope your skin with the luscious blend of strawberry, kiwi and passion fruit extracts that are rich in fruit vitamins and antioxidants, which condition and clear away signs of tired dull skin. Kiwis help reduce skin blemishes, antioxidant rich strawberries protect skin from damage and ageing while passion fruit fades wrinkles and tones skin.  This wonderfully textured and great smelling night crème nourishes and renews your skin while you’re asleep so that you wake up to skin infused with life each morning.

Available in 50g for Rs. 125

Usage:
Smooth on a dollop of Lakme Fruit Moisture Strawberry, Kiwi & Passion Fruit Skin Renewal Night Creme daily at bed time over cleansed face and neck for smooth, supple moisturized skin. For external use only.

Caution:
Avoid contact with eyes. Wash your eyes thoroughly with clean water in case of eye contact.

Pros:
1. It moisturizes  through the night. Skin does not feel dry in the morning

2. Smells really fruity – which is nice

3. Absorbs quickly into my dry skin – doesn’t leave behind any greasy feeling

4. Thankfully it didn’t break me out (about 2 months ago after Diwali,  I suffered a really bad breakout. I was waiting for that to clear up before using any new products – hence the delay in reviewing this as well – it has been sitting with me since quite some time)

5. Decently priced.

Cons:
1. I have not noticed any reduction in skin blemishes (got some after my breakout) as claimed by the product

2. The texture of the cream feels a little weird to me – it feels very slippery & silicony – not like how natural oils like almond or cold creams feel.

3. The moisturising effect is not long lasting, in the sense that I don't feel like this has improved my skin's hydration barrier or its health in the long run. As long as I use the cream, my skin feels good, but it doesn't feel hydrated if I skip this for a night or two.

Overall Opinion: This is a simple night cream moisturizer, & it does its job decently enough. Don’t expect any miracles from this like reduction in blemishes, or fading of wrinkles like it claims & you’ll be happy you bought this. This is a big improvement over the Strawberry Crème in terms of moisturising, IMO. 

I am not sure how oily skin will react to this cream, because it definitely does not feel oily when applied, it feels quite matt actually, but it does moisturise my dry skin well enough, so there must be some oily or heavy moisturising component/ingredient in it.

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

  2. @Bhumika: I agree, at least it felt that way to my dry skin.. It's not great. Kind of like if a night cream is already working very well for you, then don't bother, but if you are looking for one then you could try this out.

  3. Seeing mixed reviews of this one..looks like the oilies are liking it and the dry skin ppl are not so ok.

    Silicon-ish feel..I guess they must be adding some no? Coz, if they were actually to use any nut butter or whatever, the price wouldn't be so low.

  4. @GGG: I mean it is good, but not as hydrating as cold creams or Body shop hemp face protector. When I use those at night, they somehow moisturise very deeply, so I can skip moisturiser during the day, despite having dry skin..

    But with this I have to use a day lotion.

    I guess they are adding silicones to it, the ingredient list is heavily populated with a bunch of chemicals, & you are right, that is what makes it so affordable also. I mean it is not horrid. I wld give it like 7/10 for just simple moisturisation. It's ok.

  7. Nice that you update so often, i often end up calling your blog, addicted to blog instead of blush :-) I like what Lakme is doing with their packaging though, looks real swanky and fresh. I never really liked the brand for some reason though, my mom however really loves their peach moisturiser.

  9. @Amel: Hey! Thks for the appreciation. I am planning to do one on skin care too, it is partly done. Will post it this week! :D

    @Anamika K: I have had complaints & requests from some readers who say that I don't blog often enough, even with average 5 posts a week!!! Can you believe that? I guess you can never please everyone. LOL.

    The packaging is exactly like it was for strawberry creme, only the color has deepened I think.

    @Prerana: Hey, Thanks for sharing with with us an oily skin gal's prespective - I hope this will help some readers. :D

  10. Great review Tanveer! Haven't tried it but after I get over with my Ponds one will try it out...let's see if it works out for me. After reading the reviews I'm sure it won't work for me in winter but maybe in summers for normal skin.

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…
