Rose water from soapytwist.com Review

I used to use rose water way back in my college days. After that I sticked to my astringent mostly. Rose water helps hydrates, revitalizes, and smoothens out the skin.

Today's review is about rose water from soapytwist.com.

My experience
Usually in winters my skin becomes flaky and has dry patches. So it becomes very difficult to use any facepacks. Recently I tried the Clay-o-patra facepack and it dried my skin like anything.

After receiving the rose water from soapytwist.com I used the same facepack and it didn't dry my skin. I have also used it as toner and face mist. The packaging is travel friendly and is bottle form. Plus it has a twist cap and nozzle cap. The droplet nozzle makes it easy to dispense the product.

The In
  • The packaging is quite good and 
  • Travel friendly 
  • The droplet nozzle makes it easy to take required quantity 
  • Cures dry patches
  • Can be used as face mist
  • Can be used as toner
  • Decent price
  • Gives a cooling effect to the skin

The Out
  • Ingredients list missing

Price - 100 INR for 100 ml buy it here
Shelf life - not mentioned

Recommendation - Yes surely recommended if you are looking for an affordable rose water. I would repurchase if ingredients list is not missing.

Tell me your thoughts plus leave your blog urls for me to checkout.

NB - Product sent by brand for review. Honest review.

101 Blog posts + 1st Blogoversary of Golden Rim Blog

I am confused as to where to start. I had started this blog when I had joined a new office after coming to Bangalore and was in a learning phase as the company worked on a different framework. I was bored of practising the software framework on which the company was working (I am a software developer by profession). So I browsed through the Web (to be specific apna Google) and found some interesting diys of flowers and I was stunned. So I decided to start my blog to keep me going through the post lunch times' in office.

Doodh Paak easy recipe

It is a very easy to make dessert which is quick to prepare and can be made with a thicker consistency. Can also be made for diabetic people with sugar free ingredients. The recipe is made by two ways firstly by cooking the rice separately and then cooking in the milk secondly by cooking the rice in milk itself. The second method takes more time and since I blog always about quick and easy recipes we will see the first method.


  • Overcooked basmati rice
  • Raw milk
  • Sugar
  • Almonds, cashews

1) Cook basmati rice as we prepare for biryani but with a little extra water to make it a lot more tender 

2) Put raw milk in a heavy base pan, add the overcooked rice and sugar according to taste. 

3) Add blanched almonds and cashews and cook till a little milk is leftover 

4) Remove from heat and serve hot

NB -

  • Overcook the rice a little because sometimes it hardens if cooked in milk
  • If a little milk is not left in the pan the rice tends to harden
  • You can add custard powder or milk maid for a thicker consistency or milk. Adjust the sugar according to that.
  • If refrigerated it hardens.

5 snacks in under 15 minutes or less

We all get hungry and crave for a snacking time; mine is no different story. I often reach out for noodles, biscuits, chips when am too lazy to cook and eat something. But that again satisfies our hunger and piles up on the weight. We all know junk food harms our body still we find ourselves reaching to them. So today's post is about quick snacks to make in under 15 minutes to crave pur hunger and still be healthy. Of course you have to cook and they require little efforts as they are not ready to cook types :P

1) Spiced potato slices
     This recipe is perfect for potato cravings and can replace chips. Recipe requires big potatoes, oil, chilli powder and salt. It not only cookies faster but also tastes awesome wanting to make it again and again.

2) No-cook Poha
     I so so hate the routine breakfast of cooking poha and upma, that sometimes I eat noodles for breakfast. So lazy and unhealthy right. But this recipe comes to my rescue at that time. It just requires a tadka and that's i, everything else in it is raw.

3) Poha vada
    At times we feel like eating fried food. I usually prepared this recipe as high tea when am in not the mood to prepare the dinner or just plain lazy you can say. I have this and for dinner just rice. This again is a healthy recipe provided you soak the excess oil in poha tikkis.

4) Chocolate toast
Instead of boring bread, butter, jam I thought of trying this plus a recipe eaten at an eatery inspired it. It pretty easy and can be made in under 5 minutes and however lazy you are, you will prepare this, take my word :D

5) Corn balls
Another recipe for satisfying the cravings of fried food. It requires veggies alongwith corn so can be a healthy snacking option. Requires pretty less time than cooking boring poha and upma.

Tell me your snacking favorites!!!
