Lakmé Fruit Blast Strawberry Facewash - Review

Standard Image taken from Lakme website
What it claims: Strawberries are super fruits that not only contain Vitamin B and C, but also gently exfoliate and tone your skin, making your pores smaller and your face look brighter. This antioxidant rich fruit also lightens any pigmentation problems and leaves your skin smooth and youthful.

The sensory stimulating Lakmé Fruit Blast Strawberry Facewash is enriched with juicy strawberry extracts that deep clean every pore of your skin. Its ever-so-gentle micro-beads scrub away impurities. Leaving your skin refreshed, soft and delicately perfumed with the fragrance of strawberries. 

Price: Rs. 50 for 70 gm tube

Pros:
1.      Doesn’t dry out my skin.  (This is being used in Mumbai’s “winter”)

2.      The microbeads are very gentle on the skin

3.      Smells nice – not very overwhelming but nice at the same time

4.      It tends to feel cool on the skin – I really like this cooling sensation.

5.      Priced decently.




Cons:
1.      It doesn’t have enough beads to thoroughly exfoliate the entire face. In a drop you’ll get like some 10 tiny beads – I doubt it achieves any real overall exfoliation. It is more like spot exfoliation.

2.      It didn’t make my pores smaller, or my face brighter as it claims, & the smell of strawberries doesn’t linger on for very long. It dissipates in a few minutes.

Will I repurchase: No, I don’t think so.

It is a nice facewash, but that’s just it it – it is just nice. Get this if the way a facewsh smells is important to you.  I found it pretty *meh*. Not bad, but nothing great either. I am not sure how this fares in harsh winters. The cooling sensation it produces may feel good after a good long day in the sun.

I think this might be better as a body wash, instead of a face wash. Lakme could look at re-launching this as a body wash, as the cool, tingling feeling would be great after a hot day out.

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…
