Product Recommendation: Body Polish

While a lot of us have a fairly consistent kind of skin regime, some of us have skins that undergo changes along with the changing weather and climate. One of the most recommended ways of keeping skin looking fresh, clean and healthy is to exfoliate it along with cleansing and moisturizing. I recently came across a fantastic product online and the brand name is associated … Continue reading Product Recommendation: Body Polish

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

Product Recommendation: Callus Remover

I have inherited chronically dry skin on my feet. This doesn’t mean I always have cracked soles and rough skin but a tendency to go towards both these things very quickly. And given my lack of arch in both feet, I need to maintain feet which aren’t just healthy but also capable of taking the load of a body without getting too much pain from … Continue reading Product Recommendation: Callus Remover

Product Review: Detergent Pods

I love the idea of detergent pods. What’s not to love? They melt completely leaving no residue, they are easy to store, they are tiny and take up very little space barring the box they came in and they are an “all-in-one” product that negates the need for extra products like fabric softener extra. It’s a compact and complete package all by itself! Ariel launched … Continue reading Product Review: Detergent Pods

Product Review: Scalp Scrub

Using shampoo out of a bottle is now passé. We have shampoo cones, bars and lots of other hair care products that are floating around in the market. A not-so-recent pitch is one of scalp hair, which is separate from hair care. Here is where the differences lie: Scalp treatments unclog the hair follicles, releasing natural conditioning oils and help relieve a dry scalp and remove all those nasty dry … Continue reading Product Review: Scalp 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

Guest Review: Coffee Soap

There are people who really like their coffee. To the extent that they use products which have coffee in them for their personal hygiene as well. A while back I had posted a review of a coffee body scrub that I use regularly and which is really good VFM. Today’s product review comes from a guest reviewer who has found that she really loves another … Continue reading Guest Review: Coffee Soap

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
