Himalaya Herbals Natural Moisturising Lip Butter - Review

It Claims: A unique and luxurious blend of exotic butters that provides nourishing care, keeping your lips supple, smooth and healthy all day long.


Ingredients Include:

Himalaya Herbals Natural Moisturizing Lip Butter
  • Cocoa butter contains Vitamin E that soothes and hydrates, preventing your lips from moisture loss.
  • Sal butter moisturizes and softens lips.
  • Kokum butter helps prevent lips from chapping.
  • Mango butter rejuvenates the skin and helps minimize lip wrinkles.

Ingredients: Castor seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, hydrogenated castor oil, flavor, cocoa seed butter, tocopherol, kokum seed butter, mango seed butter, sal butter

Use Directions:

Apply evenly and liberally on your lips, as often as needed.


Price: Rs. 125 for 10 gm tub

What I liked: 
1. It is petroleum, silicon, artificial colors & preservative free! (so they claim)

2. The ingredient list - it reads just awesome - full of natural butters & oils

3. It smells really nice - christmasy & wintery. It has a chocolate smell, but it isn't that nauseating, fake one. This one is mellow & soothing. 

4. It really works! It soothes the lips & really softens them over time.

5. Priced decently and readily available at most stores. It is also packaged well in a blister pack ensuring that one always gets an unopened, untouched tub. 

What could be better: 
1. While the texture is smooth, it does feel a bit heavy on the lips. I wouldn't wear this during the day, or under lipsticks.

2. It tends to leave a whitish / grey cast on the lips

3. It doesn't really heal chapped lips. It does reduce them by 50%, but they won't go away completely. Plus this takes a few days to really heal the lips. Don't expect instant results. 

4. Tub packaging. While I'm okay with tub packs for creams, for lip balms I do prefer tubes. Also while I like the inner white rim, I don't like the plastic tub - it just feels tacky. 

Repurchase: Yes, I use this at night & it has really helped my lips. More than that even hubby likes it & says this is his favourite lip balm to use, so I see this being a permanent fixture in the house.

  13. Hey nice reviews I wanna try this product. Because it's intensely moisturizing, Astral is also ideal for very dry skin.

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…
