Product Review: Clay Detox Face Pack

A while ago, I came across a brand that claimed to be 100% natural and made by following age-old homemade recipes, in an Ayurvedic manner and completely free from parabens, phthalates, SLS, sulphates, silicones, polysorbates and PEG too- NATHABIT. Over the last couple of months, I have primarily used their face products and found that while they haven’t entirely aided in my pigmentations or acne … Continue reading Product Review: Clay Detox Face Pack

Product Review: Face Gel

Whether one’s skin runs to dry or oily, we all need a bit of moisturiser on our faces eventually. In a place like Hyderabad with the dry climate, a light moisturiser goes a long well, even in the summers. Especially if it’s a gel-based one which cools while it softens the skin. Let’s find out a bit more about the Himalaya Natural Glow Kesar Face … Continue reading Product Review: Face Gel

Product Recommendation: Herbal Foot Scrub

My previous post was about a great product I was using for the first time- an electric callus remover. The product I’ll be highlighting today is a great follow-on item once the callus remover has been used- an herbal foot scrub from Vaadi Herbals. Vaadi Herbal’s claim to fame is an age-old Ayurvedic heritage that goes back 150 years. Catering to different product categories like … Continue reading Product Recommendation: Herbal Foot Scrub

Shopping dictionary

Hello everyone! While most of us are familiar with these terms flying around all the time and pasted on the back of so many products on the actual and virtual shelves, from time to time we may forget what they actually stand for. Here’s a quick ready reckoner for the terms that many of our shopping choices contain. Do write in to me if I’ve … Continue reading Shopping dictionary

Product Review: Facial Cleaner With Sandalwood & Orange Peel

This review is of a brand that I’ve not used much. Whenever I have had occasion to use the products it’s been solely due to them being gifted since I usually find it quite OTT expensive. And since I’ve been pretty happy with the other products I’ve used on and off on my acne-prone face, I’ve not had much reason to check out their range. … Continue reading Product Review: Facial Cleaner With Sandalwood & Orange Peel

Product Review: Wild Ideas Pit Paste

A lot of people might frown a bit at this one and wonder…really? Underarm deodorant is something that doesn’t get written about too often I feel. It’s something everyone’s used at least once in their lives and usually when they are in a tearing hurry and need to not stink. Beginning with the aerosol sprays which smelled pretty good but did a good bit of … Continue reading Product Review: Wild Ideas Pit Paste

Product Review: Moisturising Body Oils

I got introduced to this brand- Wild Ideas when one of our initial guest reviewers recommended one of their eco-friendly products. That the profits from this brand benefit disadvantaged rural women, is merely the icing on the cake for me personally. Over time I’ve been using their soaps, their dishwashing liquids, floor cleaners and and the product that I’ll be reviewing today- their moisturising body … Continue reading Product Review: Moisturising Body Oils

Product Review: Pure Cult Laundry Detergent

I’ve been on an eco-friendly kick for a while now. I am still actively looking for products for everyday use that have either been sourced without harming the environment, made without too many chemicals and additives and finally; those which don’t impact the environment adversely while they’re being used and disposed. And while I’m not a green warrior by any stretch of the imagination, I’ve … Continue reading Product Review: Pure Cult Laundry Detergent

Product Comparison: Eco-friendly Laundry Detergent

I have been looking for more alternatives for my home-cleaning needs. I was happy with whatever I was using because things looked and were cleaner but the run-off from those cleaners used to make me uncomfortable. I have been wondering about how genuine and effective the eco-friendly cleaners can be and I tried out three of them for a period of a few months and … Continue reading Product Comparison: Eco-friendly Laundry Detergent
