Lakmé Melon Melt Fruit Quench Facewash - Review


Image from Lakme Website

What it claims: Ripe watermelon and muskmelon are known for their skin quenching and calming properties. They are also great sources of Vitamins A, B and C, which are essential in having flawless, healthy skin. 

Lakmé  Melon Melt Fruit Quench Facewash is a unique fruity blend of watermelon and muskmelon extracts that will hydrate every pore, while the natural luffa fruit fibers gently brush away impurities, giving your skin a healthy glow. So your skin stays tingling fresh, buttery soft and scented with the heady aroma of melons.  

Price: 50 gm tube costs 70 Rs.

Pros:
1.      It smells really nice – it is quite different also from the regular citrus fragranced facewashes. Kind of melony and fruity but not very sickly sweet.

2.      The luffa fruit fibers it contains soften up in water and are quite gentle on the face. The product is full of these fibers so you get plenty in a drop for through exfoliation. It did leave my skin very soft.

3.   While my current black/white heads stayed as they were, this did seem to prevent new ones from appearing.

Cons:
1.      Dried out my skin. I feel this is more suited for those with oily skins.

2.      Those of you who like their exfoliants to be be super soft & smooth granules will not like this. The fibers aren’t as harsh as those walnut/apricot granules but they are not as gentle as synthetic beads too. The texture is kind of similar to how the body shop facial buffer feels. If you found that rough, chances are you’ll not like this either.

I also feel that the fibers should not be used over acne spots, they seem a little rough to use over an area that is already inflamed.

Overall: Recommended for those with non-sensitive oily skins, to be used during summer & rainy season. Provides good exfoliation at a decent price.

Have you tried this one?

Product sent for review By Company/PR, review is honest, as usual.

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…
