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: 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: 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

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: 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

Guest Review: Concealer Palette

Wanting to look one’s best isn’t restricted to working professionals or even people going out to interact socially. When we look into the mirror and see a face with blemishes, spots and basically skin that looks less than healthy, it can impact our mood, frame of mind and also self-image. Having a quick fix for making the dark circles and spots vanish while the skin … Continue reading Guest Review: Concealer Palette
