Lakme Citrus Rain Fruit Detox Face Wash - Review

What it claims: Detox your skin from the effects of grime and pollution with this rich creamy Face Wash with citrus extracts of mandarin & anti-oxidant Vitamin C, leaving your skin feeling fresh and sparkling clean.

Usage: Squeeze a small amount into hands and work into a rich lather with a little water. Massage on wet face. Rinse thoroughly with water.

Caution: Avoid contact with eyes. In case of eye contact rinse thoroughly with clear water.

Price: Rs. 135 for 50 gm tube


1. Smells amazingly citrusy & fresh – it is like bursting an orange over your face

2. It does clean well – without drying out the skin, has a wonderful creamy texture.

3. Priced decently

1. This explicitly states avoid contact with eyes – might be the type that causes stinging. Dunno for sure, as I made sure to keep it away from the eyes.

Overall opinion: This is a nice face wash – it cleans the skin, without drying & also without leaving behind a greasy film. Smells awesome too.

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


  1. oh i'm yet to try out lakme's new skin care range. everything sounds and looks so tempting that i end up getting confused!

  2. looks like a good face wash, y cant we get lakme here :(

  3. I found them all a bit similar excpt d flavors n smell..dunno sumhow not that attracted to it..

  4. How does this compare to the Himalaya hydrating face wash, Tanveer? I've used up the Himalaya one & I need a replacement. Also, it's safe to use in the morning, right? Orange makes skin photosensitive, so I'm curious if you've experienced anything like that.

  5. i somehow dint like it that much

  6. @Rima: :).. they have come up with real fancy names this time.. The range is just okish, personally, so if something already is working very well for you currently, I would suggest don't get tempted..

    @Abi: Ohh, where do u live? I'm sure you get some brands there too ;)

    @Bhumika: Really? I felt they are quite different - in ways more than smell - some of them are def. more hydrating, some better for oily skin and some more exfoliating.
    Can't say about flavor - haven't tasted any :D LOL..

    @Poohkie: Honestly Poohkie - I use this in the evenings only. During winters I just wash my face in the morning with warm water, & face wash is just end of day. I haven't noticed any photosensitive reactions, but then my skin is not very sensitive. If your's is, please err on the side of caution.

    @Retnu: Aww, too bad :P

  7. suitable for dry or oily skin ?

  8. Ya, I'm going to avoid this, for now. My skin is going through a sensitive-itchy phase, so I'm just going to repurchase the himalaya one. But it's just SOOO tempting to buy something new!

  9. @Shreya: I have dry skin & I like it. Can't say how oily skinned people will react to it.

    @Poohkie: Yes, if skin is going through troubled phase - either opt for home made, simple stuff or something u trust.

  10. Love your Blog Tanveer. Crisp , precise reviews really make it interesting !! And , dont bother about the standard images. In my opinions , I feel that you should either put real quality good images or use standard ones.Really except for swatches of makeup, we don't really need to see pictures of the product :)

    Keep up the good work.Love your writing style.

  11. Nice to know Lakme is coming up with new products and pricing them decently...high time...
    Good review!!

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…
