Product Review: Kent RO Machine

I invested in a reverse osmosis or RO machine some time back. I wasn’t too sure of the quality of the water we were accepting as pure and fresh from the vendors of the 20 liter plastic cans. And it was getting tedious to boil the water before we drank it, allowing for time to cool it down not to mention the amount of gas … Continue reading Product Review: Kent RO Machine

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 Review: Foldable Book Stand

I recently got my mother a book stand. She’s an avid reader and reads newspapers, paperbacks and hardcover books as well. Since each one of these articles varies in size and weight, she needed a firm stand which wouldn’t take up too much when she wasn’t reading. A bit of research on the internet let me to this- The Near Stop Book Stand. A product … Continue reading Product Review: Foldable Book Stand

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

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
