Auravedic Exfoliating Foot Oil - Mountain Spice - Review

What it claims: This foot treatment is extra-rich emollient oil, super charged with botanical extracts which smoothes cracked, dry heels. With pure extracts of Asparagus and Aloe Vera which heal and soften rough calluses and cracks.

Price: Rs. 250 for 100 ml bottle.

Where: Phoenix Mills, opposite the Lush store.


In Mumbai  Auravedic is available at 
  • Phoenix Mills, Lower Parel, 
  • Dhoop, Khar, 
  • Tresorie, Santa Cruz, and 
  • Culture Shop, Powai.

The brand also retails in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Goa.

Ingredients:

 
Pros:
     1.      Being an oil – this product really helps to heal cracked, dry heels from within. It moisturizes and heals from within so after the first few days – it need not be applied daily. Once every 2-3 days is good enough to maintain feet skin.

     2.      It absorbs pretty quickly for an oil & doesn’t stain sheets (I generally apply this just before going to bed). It is light & non-greasy
     
     3.      Completely natural product – with the exception of preservatives – this is completely natural. No added fragrances or propylene gycols here.
     
     4.      Fully listed ingredient listing – unlike a lot of herbal lines that conceal ingredients by mentioning only the key ones or some unknown base – this product has the full product listing with %s


     5. Just a few drops are needed - like 2-3 drops for each foot. 

Cons:
     1.   This is oil – so even though it absorbs fast – it takes a minute for it to sink in.
     
     2. Smells like an ayurvedic product – don’t get me wrong it doesn’t smell bad – but it also doesn’t have any fragrances added to it – so don’t expect it to smell floral & all. It smells a little woodsy & spicy. Initially I hated it, have gotten used to it now. 

Will I repurchase: Yes. It does really work fast on dry feet skin without being greasy or heavy. Plus the healing is from within – not temporary. After a long time, I have used something on my feet that seems to really moisturize & soften them from within. I like the fact that my feet didn't become dependent on it - after a week of daily usage I am now using this just once in 2-3 days & my feet haven't gotten any worse. 

Product sent by Company / PR for consideration – but that has not affected my opinion of this product in any way.

    @CZ: I generally don't use oils on my feet for the fear of slipping coz of greasiness, but they more effective than creams :)

    @Ana K: Yea, it is a good buy for winters

    @Speaking Chic: My feet got softer & better within just 3-4 days of daily use. But I don't have like really bad cracked feet - mines suffer more from dryness.

  15. @Anamika: I think it should be ok - the oil itself is not thick - it is kind of similar to FE Sesame oil in consistency - so I guess it should be ok.. :)

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…

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…
