Taking a short break & some shopping updates

Hello Gals!

I'm not gonna be posting very often for a week now - My cousin is getting married & I'm gonna be busy with that.

But just to share some info with you guys, I was out shopping today & Pantaloons (Lower Parel) is hosting some major discounts on cosmetics -

PS: Recounting from memory - I could be a little wrong in certain cases.

Faces - 20% off (I love their eyeliners & already have them in 4 colors (grey, metallic brown, regular brown & turquoise) , cheap at 250 (prediscount) - do try those)
Colorbar - 15% off
Lakme - BOGO offer on Lip artists pencils & 9 to 5 lipsticks
Maybelline - 15% off (I think, or is it 10% - not sure)
Revlon: Buy two lipsticks & get one free (the free ones are preselected 3 shades - one in frosty pink, light brown & deep maroon - I didn't like any - reminded me of old Lakme lipsticks - sorry Lakme)
L'Oreal: some 10-15% off plus they are giving away a pink bag on purchase of 1000 plus.

At Lifestyle:
Bourjois (At Lifestyle) has some offer if you purchase 1000 bucks +
Lakme: BOGO offer on 9 to 5 plus voucher worth 250 on purchase of 1000 plus

Accesorise (Paladium) has 30% off on selected items - I got this Dorthy Perkins Bow Ring from there for Rs. 200, in additional to these pale peach colored rose earrings (Rs. 350).

Happy Shopping People!

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…
