Lakme Fruit Blast Pear Butter Deep Hydrating Mask - Review

What it claims: Rescue and rejuvenate rough, flaky skin with pears and pure shea butter. Formulated for deep cleansing and intense hydration, this mask complements any skin care routine. Soft, buttery yet grainy textured pears are rich in vitamin C and K that help revitalize your skin. Shea butter helps moisturise the skin, promoting cell renewal.

How to use: Apply thick layer on face for 15 minutes. Wipe off excess with damp washcloth/cotton.

Price: Rs. 150 for 50 gm tube

Pros:
1.      It does help moisturize the skin – the pack is a white cream that emulsifies upon application to a clear layer on the face.

2.      Didn’t break me out

3.      It does help calm dry, flaky skin.

4.      The tiny tube travels well

5.      It is not as oily as cold cream and it also absorbs faster into the skin as compared.

6.      It works just as well on hands (yea, I tried it – the skin on my hands tends to get very flaky during winters)
Cons:
1.      It could be more hydrating, it tends to feel a little synthetic, and also the hydration is not cumulative – so it won’t make your skin feel better over time. Effect is rather short- lived.

2.      It does leave a film of moisture behind, while that didn’t bug me on my face, I didn’t like having it on my hands (my bad, Lakme never asked me to use it on my hands in the first place)

3.      It claims to deep cleanse – but I didn’t notice my skin looking any cleaner.  I personally feel this should be a little more oily – a bit more Shea Butter??.

Overall: I like the concept of a butter mask for dry skin,  as opposed to the regular kaolin/clay based masks which don’t suit dry skin & aren’t of any use during winter. It does soften the skin a bit.

It is a good purchase for winters for those with dry skin & who hate thick, oily moisturizers.  This does help add another level of moisturisation to the face, but that’s about it.

Have you tried this?

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…
