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.

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

Having a quick fix for making the dark circles and spots vanish while the skin … Continue reading Guest Review: Concealer Palette

Anyone who suffers from problematic skin complete with blemishes, faces some tough choices when getting ready for any kind of interaction with people.

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

And they have things which suit different skin types quite well- most important. I have combination skin. Now for those of you who know have been seeing that term in different places but don’t entirely know what it means, check … Continue reading Product Recommendation: Grapeseed Body Scrub
