1.      I got this free with purchase of Neutrogena sunscreen – I was expecting this to be very drying for my skin & didn’t use it for quite some time. But when I got a bad acne breakout (from the coconut oil) a few months ago I dug this out. I was pleasantly surprised when I used this – it not drying at all. It is quite gentle & mild. My skin never feels dry or stretchy after use.

2.      This calmed my breakouts to quite an extent, and may have prevented more breakouts as well – haven’t got any since I began using this.

1.      Slightly priced at the higher end

2.      This doesn’t lather/foam a lot – this can be confusing initially, especially if you are used to high lather face washes – you’ll end up using quite a bit in order to get some lather, before you realize that this is not high on foam.

Will I repurchase: Yes, if this facewash suited me during winters when my skin tends to be dry & flaky, this would definately suit me all year round.


  1. this is a good facewash, i like it. somehow it lathers quite well for me? well that's quite subjective.

    you have dry skin na? then you must definitely check out the daily scrub from neutrogena as well. i exfoliate daily and needed something mild. this one fits the bill perfectly. it has such a luxurious feel to it and the granules are like soft cotton bits massaging your face! really works. and you need tiny amount for the whole face, not much.

  2. yet to try other products from Neutrogena range, tanvi...u know i use only the lip stuff n nothing else....i already have others to finish...god, the troubles of stocking up products :(

    i see u get to use Neutrogena more these days...more n more on ur blog :) lather part of it, i prefer lathery sounds tacky, but LOL...wish to try this range...

  3. i have used this n liked it a lot.

  4. i used this one and for me it was just ok,, didnt do anything extra special for my oily skin.

  5. it has got saliyclic acid, does tempt me :)

  6. i almost exclusively use neutrogena...every product suits me...
    this cleanser, the sunscreen, the scrub...
    i wish they would bring in all the neutrogena products to india....


  7. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.

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…
