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 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

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.

Guest Review: Water Saver Gadget

Some products that I review are very simple in their design and function but the impact they carry is quite large in comparison. In a country like India saving water is something all of us should actively be working towards primarily because so many of us go without clean water, drinking water or even access to water as and when we need it. So for … Continue reading Guest Review: Water Saver Gadget

If you have a thick, curly or wavy head of hair the chances of you looking for hair care products which suit you to a T are tough. If something is good for the scalp, it can make the hair rough.

Guest Review: Eco-friendly Toothbrushes

Many of us are trying to streamline our lives and make them greener. We would like to reduce our carbon footprint to the maximum extent possible and eventually get to a state where’s it’s nil.
