Rimmel London.. Now in Mumbai

Some of you must have heard of Rimmel London right?

Yup, the one with a lot of different mascaras & nail paints & eyebrow pencil kits, yeah?

They are here in Mumbai!

Infinity - II at Malad has a store called Parsus Parcos (thanks Parul!) on the ground floor. I guess it is new, coz I've never seen it before. From outside it I could see that it was a posh version of Beauty Centre with Shiesho, Liz Arden & the works. Curosity got the better of me and I went in the store.

They had some "budget" brands too like Maxfactor &  Bourjois, Sally Hansen et al. But then I saw it.
Tucked in a corner was Rimmel London.

They have most of their range there - from nail paints to mascara to eyeliners. Most of it is decently priced between Rs. 250 to Rs. 500.. Excellent, right?

I tried a lot of things, but I eventually just bought a eye liner called Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in shade called Plum something. It is a deep aubergine purple (I know! I'm obsessed with purple liners!). That's my litmus test for any new brand. I always try their eyeliner first - generally a brown or purple. If I like how it works, then I look at other things. It cost me 270 /-

Also I wasn't very sure what works well, considering that I've never really bothered with reviews for this brand.

Anyways, I'm excited about a new brand in the market at good prices. Let's see how they fare...

Have you tried anything from Rimmel? Any suggestions?
What other drugstore brands would you like to see in India?


  1. ahh.. if its indian malls with other brands then I think it will soon be sold in indian online stores as well. Really wanna try their mascaras.

  2. Infinity II is oo far far away from me :( sighhhhhh.. lemme chk if Rimmel is available town side :) but a "woohoo" for Rimmel for making it to India :D

  9. I've tried lipsticks and glosses by Rimmel. I also have a Rimmel green shimmery eye liner. The products have been really good.

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…
