Personally, I hardly use coconut oil only in my hair care routine. I mix it with other hair oils to get the utmost results. But for my toddler Anaaya I always use coconut oil for oiling her hair. I have been using Shesha Extra Virgin Coconut Oil for a long time and I must say I am highly impressed by its purity and effectiveness. Recently while browsing Amazon, I came across Morpheme Remedies Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. I had already used their amla hair oil so I ordered the coconut oil without giving a second thought. By the way it's always good to change products once in a while as using same product reduces the efficacy of the product on the skin and hair.
Morpheme Remedies Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Price- Rs 449 for 200ml Avaialble on Amazon. Will update the link soon!
Morpheme Remedies Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
The coconut oil comes in a dark green sturdy plastic bottle with a pump packaging. The bottle is of really good quality and the pump gets locked and unlocked with a simple twist. Though I do not carry hair oil with me whilst traveling but you can carry it in a cover if you want to. All the information is printed over the bottle.
A big thumbs up
Easy to use pump
The coconut oil is clear and smells of coconut just like parachute. It has good consistency and applies easily on the hair. I particularly use this oil on my baby's hair and I can definitely see good hair growth on her. It is pure and natural oil but the brand has clearly written that it is unfit for consumption that make me really think of its purity.
Anyways we don't consume coconut and I am very happy with Anaaya's hair growth after shaving her hair. I also use this coconut oil before making my baby wear diaper. It prevents diaper rashes and keeps skin dry and rash free!
1. Pure and natural.
2. Cold pressed.
3. No harmful chemicals.
4. No sulphate, parabens, mineral oils, color or fragrance.

6. Works like a charm as hair oil.
7. Can be used as a body oil for dry skin.

Overall, I am very happy with Morpheme Remedies Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. It makes my baby's hair soft and shiny. I can see visible difference in her hair growth. I would definitely recommend it to all mommies and beauty enthusiasts.
1. Use it twice a day in your kids hair.
2. If you have very dry skin, use it after bath as a body oil.
3. Mix it with other hair oils to optimum benefits.

I had always used Tedibar soap on my baby from day 1. Few months ago, Littloo send me their baby soap (REVIEW HERE) and I liked it too on my baby. After my baby soap stock got over, I went to repurchase Tedibar but sadly it was out of stock so I bought Himalaya Soap and the results were quite disappointing. It dried my baby's skin and does not make her skin look soft and healthy. Recently I tried Santoor Baby Soap and you will have to read till end to know if I liked it or not 😉
The baby soap comes packed in a white cardboard box packaging with all the information printed over it. Each soap in turn is wrapped in a thin plastic that is easy to tear. The soap smells so good that I literally love to sniff it each time I use it for my toddler. It is white in color and has soft touch. It lathers nicely and feels good and smooth on the skin. It washes away quickly and does not leave greasy residue behind. It makes my baby's skin soft, smooth and moisturized throughout the day.
Santoor Baby Soap
The baby soap contains milk cream, almond oil and saffron extract that not only moisturizes the skin but makes it look radiant. It does not turn soggy unlike other soaps.
1. Amazing and lovely smell.
2. Cleanses the skin well.
3. Does not dry out the skin.
4. Makes skin look so healthy.
5. Contains all good ingredients.
6. Comes with an offer of buy 3 get 1 free.
7. Keeps skin moisturized the whole day.
8. Reasonably priced.
9. Does not turn soggy.
1. It's not tear free.
Overall, I love Santoor Baby Soap for my baby. It keeps her skin very soft and nourished for the whole day. It contains milk cream and saffron extract that keeps skin glowing. It is very gentle and milk and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
1. Do not close the lid of the soap case immediately after using the soap. Let it dry for sometime.
2. It irritates baby's eyes so make sure you take care of it. I ask my toddler to keep her eyes closed but accidents so happen.

If you read my blog regularly, you would how much I raced about MCaffeine Neem Glow Gel. I literally loved it a lot and had already repurchased it. I had recommended it to many and they all loved it. So while browsing Amazon, I thought of trying more Mcaffeine products and ordered Mcaffeine Neem Face Wash. I have oily, combination and acne prone skin so the ingredients on this face wash really intrigued me to try it.
Mcaffeine Neem Face Wash
Price- Rs 449 for 150ml
It's currently not available on Amazon but you can buy it from Nykaa or Flipkart!
The packaging of the face wash is of very good quality with a twist to open pump dispenser. You just need to twist the pump to open and close. It is great for traveling and won't cause any mess. All the information is printed over the bottle. The green color of the face wash makes it stand out in the bathroom among all other bath products.
Ingredients list which is so important for me!
Description is very short!
Pump dispenser which is very convenient while traveling!
This is how the face wash looks!
The fragrance of the face wash is okay kind of and does not smell of neem or any other ingredient present in the cleanser. It is not overpowering and fades away as soon it is applied on the face. The face wash has gel like consistency and all you need is one pump for both face and neck. It lathers nicely and feels nice on the skin. I simply massage my face for few seconds and rinse it off with warm water. It cleanses the skin well and does not leave sticky residue behind.
The face wash does not prevent pimples from occurring. I did get small pimples whilst using it. Though I would not say it's because of this face wash but it did help in reducing pimples with regular usage. It also says to fight hyperpigmentation. I don't have any so can't say. It does not help in open pores. It also dries my skin a bit as I could feel itchiness on my cheeks after I started using this face wash.
1. Cleanses the skin.
2. Paraben free.
3. Travel friendly packaging.
4. Great for very oily skin.
5. Does not contain comedogenic ingredients.
6. Cruelty free!
7. Reduces pimples and acne.
1. Does not prevent pimples.
2. Dries out my skin. I have oily, combination skin.
Overall, I am really not happy with this purchase. Mcaffeine Neem Face Wash didn't do anything special for the Rs 449. It just cleanses the skin but leave skin dry and itchy. I would only recommend it to people with very oily skin.
1. Use only moderate amount of face wash else it will dry out your face.
2. Use it everyday if you are suffering from pimples.
3. Great for summer season.

I am a huge fan of thermal spring water as they really soften the skin and makes it look hydrated and smooth. I have been using La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water for the last few months and I must say this is the best thermal spring water I have used till date! Here is my review on La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water!
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water comes in a pressurized aluminium spray can with a white pull off lid. As soon as you open the lid, you will find a spray dispenser that dispenses the right amount of liquid. The can feels very cool to the touch and is quite light. Overall the packaging is quite simple and understated. It does not tend to leak or spill and can be easily carried around in a bag while traveling. The 50ml can is super light and it's always in my bag!
Description of La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water
A very nice mist dispenser!
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water is a versatile product and can be used in multiple ways. I tend to get red bumps after threading and waxing and I am so glad that this thermal spring water reduces the redness and itchiness in a jiffy. I also love using it as a toner. Just spray twice on a cotton wool and swipe it across your skin. It is so hydrating that it instantly soothes my dry patches (I have oily, combination skin). It has reduced my acne and pimples and makes my skin more healthy and radiant. It gives a nice cooling sensation and my skin feels instantly refreshed and soft. I love applying my makeup after spraying thermal spring water on my skin. It provides a soft, smooth and hydrated base and blends in my foundation really well. It does not give a sticky or greasy feeling.
