Eva Lip balm in Blackcurrent burst - review

What it claims & Key Ingredients: Please see image below.

Price: Rs. 75 for 8 gms

Available at: most supermarkets. I believe this is available in a couple of other variants as well like classic vanilla, strawberry bite, tangy orange & plum sparkle.

What I liked: 
1. The color - a sheer blackish berry purple mix. It is an interesting color with silver shimmer.

2. SPF 15

3. It has very, very fine micro shimmer in silver that doesn't show up so obviously on the lips. It just gives a nice shiny look.

4. I also liked the cute slide packaging.

5. It claims it is 100% vegetarian. I'm not sure now, are my other lip balms non-veg??

What I didn't like: 

1. The absolutely horrendous artificial smell of this thing. It makes me wanna gag each time I tried to use this

See that silver shimmer glistening..
2. It's a lip balm but it does zilch for the lips.

Would I re-purchase: No way. Not this variant, nor any variant. This product had such promise - amazing shade - berry purple, with silver shimmer. Only if it didn't smell so horrendous. I have this entire tub with me now & I just can't bear to use it.


  1. was so cheap and so cute too!!!

  2. Looks very pretty. I guess that is the only plus point eh? Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have this one in pink shade, it doesn't have any shimmer in it, butt its pretty ok. Nothing great. Just ok......even I wouldn't repurchase.

  4. i wonder if these are available in england?

    i dont like that it appears quite unhygenic as u have to use ur finger all the time and when u open it the whole thing is exposed hmm, thats just me

  5. Oh what a lemming, bad smelling /tasting lip balms is just unbearable. You should try The body shop passion berry lip balm, similar shade with a hint of shimmer, smells good & keeps the lips in good shape

  6. nice review. These are also available in tubes for Rs 20 each, I got mine at the chemists'. Thanks :)nice review. These are also available in tubes for Rs 20 each, I got mine at the chemists'. Thanks :)

  7. I am usually game for all kind of lip products. This one looks yummy. But the OTT smell part ...hmm... I'm thinking hard if I should get hold of it

  8. hahaa could almost picture you gagging! i almost always look at the tub and want to buy this but my avon naturals s soooo good, i didnt have to risk it! :)

  9. ohh..I was thinking of trying I wont..thanks for the review..alrdy have so many lip balms to finish.. :/

  10. The only good this about it, is the cute packing.... such a dud :(

  11. I hardly use the one I have- Plum Sparkle. It found it ok...but ya, nothing great apart from the cute packaging

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…
