Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion - Review

Now that I had tried the cleanser, I had to try the moisturising lotion too!

It claims: Non-comedogenic Cetaphil® Moisturizing Lotion has a non-greasy formulation that is mild, non-irritating and long lasting. This gentle moisturizing formula contains emollients and humectants that bind moisture to the skin. This fragrance-free moisturizer contains no lanolins or parabens.

IngredientsWater, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil (Macademia Nut Oil), Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Stearoxytrimethylsilane, Stearyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Farnesol, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid.

Price: Rs. 200 for 100 ml

Indications: Dry Skin Conditions

What I liked: 

1. Highly moisturizing, it instantly calms dry skin & forms a light film on top of the skin. Most moisturisers that are this softening tend to be greasy (like cold cream) - this one combines intense moisture with minimum greasiness.

2. Fragrance & Paraben - free

3. It does not sting or irritate dry or flaky skin at all

4. It is a perfect base for addition of essential skin oils. Once a month, mix a drop of your fav skin oil (I like sesame) into 2-3 drops of this & apply. Best left on overnight for a creamy treat for the skin. 

5. Didn't cause any acne. 
What I didn't like:
1. It gets a little greasy after a while, feels thick on the skin. I hate the feel of this, esp during these hot humid months.

Would I re-purchase: It is a very good, fuss-free moisturizer that works instantly. But I would never wear this during the day, it feels very thick & stifling. I would keep a bottle around though to apply during the night, sometimes my skin takes a bit of beating thanks to me being negligent with my night cream. This lotion is a perfect overnight solution to deal with my negligence.

  4. ah... so us combination skinned ones shud stay away from these....

  5. Looks like a good option in winters

  6. i have always wanted to use cetaphil range. wish it had SPF.

  7. I am yet to try the cleanser and thanks for reminding me Tanz :)

  8. When sis had some acne problems, the dermatologist suggested some cetaphil stuff..and it improved gradually! Since then I have been a supporter of cetaphil!

  9. Yep, I have been using Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion for a while now and its indeed quite nice. Especially during winters here in Australia. Wouldn't recommend using it in other seasons though since its a heavy moisturiser.

  10. Thanks for introducing a new prdt!! :)

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…
