Aroma Magic Papaya Enzyme Lotion - Review

Sounds exotic right? Papaya Enzyme lotion..



What it claims: Please refer to image above.

Price: Rs. 160 for 220 ml bottle

What I didn't like: 

1. The name is misleading, this is not a lotion. This is a watery clear solution - the consistency is like that of water. It also looks like water.

2. The smell is very bland - I was hoping it would smell little fruity as it has papaya, apple & lemon in it.

3. I have been using this for 3 months now. I don't think this has helped reduce brown spots.

4. Usage is little tricky coz of it's consistency - you can't use this as a regular lotion as it just flows off the skin. I use it the way one uses a toner - dampen a cotton pad and gently wipe entire face.

What I did like

1. Think of this as toner & not as a lotion - it is really nice as a toner. It leaves the skin clean but doesn't dry it out.

2. It does cut through grease. I generally use this to wipe my face after I take off my makeup with Lush BabyFace (which is essentially just solid oil) - it very effectively removes the oil from my face.

3. Doesn't irritate eyes or the skin.

Would I re-purchase: To use as a daily use toner, yes. I like using this as a toner as it doesn't irritate my skin or dry it out. Most toners tend to irritate my skin (I guess it is the cooling menthol or alcohol in them), but not this one. I only think it is labelled incorrectly as it not a lotion at all. 

Comments

  1. Nice review. I have never tried anything from this brand. Now, your reviews makes me think if I should give this a try. As for toners, Himalaya one worked great for me

  6. I feel Aroma magic products are heavily scented & products with heavy scents don't work for me, I'm scared to try their range. Thanks for the review :-)

  7. If I would buy this product it would be to help me with the spot but since it fails to do so I'll skip it.Aroma Magic does have a lot of good products but unfortunately don't live up to the claims they make.Sure one or two of them are met but the rest seem more marketing gimmicks than anything else.

  8. So if you use it as toner, you need to follow it up with moisturiser? You said it didn't dry out your skin, though.

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
