LUSH in Lokhandwala, Andheri (W)!!!!

Ok, I am really excited!!

You girls remember how I used to crib that both the Lush stores in Mumbai were 2 hours (one way) drive from my place, and wished it would open a store closer? I would feel really lazy to spend 4 hours travelling just to get a 100 grms of product.

Well, they have! My best friend (she's a Lush junkie & the one who got me addicted to their stuff in the first place) very excitedly msged me today evening & told me that a Lush store has opened up in Lokhandwala - barely 20 min walk from my place! Woohoo!




(On second thoughts, may be I should have wished for something better - like a 70% discount on Lush & Mac & Mufe for life or a Ferrari or world peace or even some peace in the Indian beauty blogosphere). But I won't look a gift horse in the mouth - I am thankful & grateful (though my hubby is not) & I plan to go shopping there this very weekend.. hehehehe...

Ok, so this is the address girls:

P.S: For those of you who are new to area, I'm told this store is in the 4th cross lane, next to the Reebok store. I plan to check it out over the weekend - I'll update in case this is not correct.

Update: This LUSH store is at the absolute end of Lokhandwala, it is actually opposite Reebok & Beauty World, next to the Home Pride bakery.

P.P.S.: Why do they call themselves Lush Cosmetics when they are actually a skin & hair care company & hardly make any cosmetics?

Have a wonderful LUSH weekend Girls!!

  3. @Ankita: I have used two of their products for oily/acne prone skin. One was Fresh Farmacy Cleanser - which I have reviewed here. http://addictedtoblush.blogspot.com/2011/03/lush-fresh-farmacy-cleanser-review.html

    Just to give you a gist - it is nice but a lil on the drying side. My face is quite oily so I liked it, but I don't use it more than once a day...

    Next is Dark Angels - a exfoliating prdt for oily skin. I love this one, but don't use it more than twice a week - this stuff is strong. There is a review for this also here: http://addictedtoblush.blogspot.com/2010/11/lush-dark-angels-review.html

    Another prdt that I loved is the Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask - It helps heal acne & reduce redness, but only problem is that it lasts only 2 mnths max. I stored it in the freezer.. The SA was nice enuf to give me 50 gms of this (instead of the mandatory 100 gms - I guess he took pity on all the acne on my face) :)

    Also they have testers at the store, pls try out everything before u buy - in fact I wld suggest, try out the sample - go for a walk in the mall, & after 30 mins if yr skin still feels good - get it only then :)

  7. It`s always a pleasure to meet another lush junkie, I`m so following you. You are sooo lucky to have lush in India. We dont have it here in Pak.You have asked a very good question. I have wondered why they call it cosmetics as well.DO try their vanilla in the mist soap(coffee and vanilla) and massage bars. I just wrote a lil review if you are interested visit my 5 day old blog :)

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…
