Life & Pursuits – Certified Organic Ayurveda

Organic Ayurveda Life &Pursuits
Certified Organic Ayurveda is something that a few brands can boast of. And Life & Pursuits happens to be one of them.

For me certified organic Ayurveda stands for the best quality natural ingredients that a beauty care product can have. So when Life & Pursuits offered to send me their hair oil and moisturizing lotion I was really excited to try it.

Common notion is that good quality Ayurvedic beauty care is expensive. But after trying out these products, I realized that there is an evident value proposition in their brand and that I was getting the best quality beauty care possible.

Life & Pursuits Ultra Light Moisturizing Lotion

Organic Ayurveda Life & Pursuits

Price – Rs.600 for 100 ml

Ingredients

Mulethi, Manjishtha, Kesar, Aloe Vera Juice, Sunflower Oil, Rose Oil, Lavender Oil etc. – All certified organic.

Product Claims

Organic Ayurveda Life & Pursuits

  • Hydrates Skin
  • Non Greasy

My Experience

I do find this moisturizer effective on dry skin areas like elbows and knees. It is also very light-weight, doesn’t feel sticky and is actually very easily absorbed into skin. So honestly the product claims do hold true. However, since this is a natural product the fragrance is kind of earthy too – it doesn’t have that pleasant smelling artificial perfumed fragrance at all. This product doesn’t bother skin, or cause any kind of redness or rashes.

Life & Pursuits Hair Revitalizing Oil

Organic Ayurveda Life & Pursuits

Price – Rs.600 for 100 ml

Ingredients

Organic Ayurveda Life & Pursuits

Bhringraj, Brahmi, Amla, Neem, Methi, Coconut Oil, Germanium Oil etc. – All certified organic.

Product Claims

Organic Ayurveda Life & Pursuits

  • Revitalizes scalp and hair follicles
  • Soothes dry scalp and clears dandruff

My Experience

A massage with this oil and I definitely found that my hair looked shiny after washing it. I don’t have severe dandruff so I can’t really say much about that claim, but overall my hair definitely felt nourished after using this oil 3-4 times. It does have a darkish color and has quite a watery consistency so my advice is to be really quick in getting this on your scalp. However, I found that it doesn’t really stain pillow covers as it is easily absorbed in the scalp.

As of now, Life & Pursuits has a limited skin and hair care range. However they do have a lot of Baby Care products which you can check out here.

Their products are available on their website and Amazon as well. You can click the links below in case you wish to know more about this.

 

I’d love to know about your favorite beauty care brands so leave me a comment telling me about them.

About Face India – Facial Review

About Face India
About Face is a hair and beauty clinic in Mumbai. It is not a salon, but a clinic that focuses on treatments and solutions for problems related to skin, scalp and hair and even cosmetic treatments.

I recently tried a facial session at About Face and if you would like to know the procedure and the results then keep reading!

Firstly, this isn’t a salon – so there’s no one standard facial that anyone can try out. In fact, they carefully examine your skin, ask you for concerns or existing problems and only then recommend a treatment.

About Face India

My skin is particularly sensitive and was honestly slightly dull at the moment when I visited About Face. So they suggested a facial that refreshes my skin and also a very light superficial skin peel that resurfaces fresher looking skin.

Cleansing

The facial starting with cleansing.

Mesoporation

After cleansing, the next step was Mesoporation. In this they infuse various hydrating ingredients into the skin. It does not involve any injections and is done in the presence of the skin doctor at the clinic.

Extraction

They also took care of all the blackheads and whiteheads that my skin had.

Peel

This was followed by a very mild peel that was slightly itchy at first but felt bearable later. This peel mainly helps improve skin texture. And it was left on the skin for barely a couple of minutes and then wiped off.

Face Mask

The final step was a face mask and they actually used a very hydrating sheet mask.

Results

The day of the facial my skin felt really fresh. However, the actual results only appeared after 2 days when my skin look visibly more radiant and more even toned. I didn’t get any rashes from the peel which meant that it was mild enough for my skin to handle.

About Face India

Would I do it again? 

Yes! It definitely added a lot of glow to my skin.

Price

Their services start from Rs.1800.

So that was it from my experience at About Face. You can find out more about them here.

Washington Apples in India!

Washington Apples in India Juicy Red
YES – You can have Washington Apples in India!

The Washington Apple Commission recently hosted an event talking about the benefits of consuming Washington Apples in India. This event was in association with the FBAI. I absolutely love these events hosted by the FBAI, because it’s a good mix of like-minded folks coming together and talking about interesting topics. The event was hosted at the beautiful St.Regis Hotel which does provide a spectacular sunset view of the city.

Chef Himanshu Taneja was also present at the event and he demonstrated the versatility of the Washington Apples – you could use it in cooking, baking and so much more. In fact, the spread that they laid out for us at the event, pretty much used the Washington Apple as one of the ingredients.

I’m not the biggest fan of apples in general, but Washington Apples have a special place in my heart. I remember eating these on some of my trips to the U.S. and that’s actually where I began to like apples. We received some apples on attending this event and I was totally reminded of the ones I had on my trips.

Apples are actually really good for health. That age old saying is true and here’s what Apples do:

  • Fight Diseases
  • Reduce risk of Cancer, Cholestrol, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Asthma
  • Improve Brain Health
  • High on Fiber
  • Good for Digestion
  • Promote Weightloss
  • No Fat
  • No Cholestrol

Apples come in 5 varieties:

Red Delicious

Washington Apples in India Red

Golden Delicious

Granny Smith

Gala

Fuji

Washington apples are special because they come from Washington, which is known to have the most fertile land for the best available apples. It’s indeed a good thing that we can enjoy these Washington Apples in India as well.

Apples are definitely not my most favorite fruit, but seeing all of the advantages I’m definitely going to try and get some at least a few times a week.

Do you love apples? Have you tried Washington Apples in India? Let me know in the comments below!
