The Nature's Co Wet Mud - Vetiver Soap - Review

It claims: Lather up with detoxifying wed mud & vetiver that will nourish & moisturize your skin, leaving it rejuvinated & smooth

Key Ingredients: Vertiver Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Extract, Aloe Extract

Price: Rs. 345 for 125 gm soap

What I liked:

1. The smell. It smells of khus-khus (vertiver)& that earthy aroma released by the soil after the first rain. Vertiver has a very clean, aqua but earthy kind of frangrance and is one of my favourite essential oils.

2. I used this only on my face (you read the reason in the "WCBB" below) - it was pretty mild & didn't dry out my face even once.

3. The packaging is very cute - it comes wrapped in clear plastic & then tied up in a cloth.

4. Fortunately, this orange colored soap doesn't turn into mush like LUSH soaps. It lathers well, but at the same time is sturdy & lasts long. 

What could be better (WCBB):

1. If you'll see the image, the product I got was tagged "Oily Skin".. I was confused, it is soap, but which person has oily skin on the body. I decided not to risk it and have been using this on my face only. Today I read on the website that it is for "Normal Skin".. what's the deal, oily or normal?

2. It is one of the most expensive soaps I have seen.

3. Ingredients listing is incomplete.

Would I recommend: It is an amazing smelling soap, but honestly it is too expensive. If you have the budget, then you could indulge yourself.

Product sent by company / PR for review.

  3. @Anamika: I so wish it were cheaper.. like 120 bucks, I wld have become a life long fan. I love the way it smells, but 350 bucks for a soap is a little too much.

    @Divya: I feel very conflicted when it comes to such luxurious ayurveda - it is all amazing stuff, but too expensive.

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…
