After over 100 hours of research, and many more testing, we discovered that the best natural deodorants are those with a higher proportion of naturally-derived ingredients; no parabens, sulfates, aluminum, or alcohol, and are effective at eliminating odor for long durations of up to 8 hours and deodorize with neutral fragrances.

After trying it cold, hot and every which way, we think that Sleepy Owl Cold Brew Packets are enjoyable but priced too high for coffee we brew ourselves. We found the cold brew in itself, caused fewer acidity symptoms in our testers – making it a welcome – but not quite scientifically proven as better – way to consume coffee.
Overall, Athlos athletic activewear feels incredibly comfortable, has an appealing muted aesthetic and a pleasant buying experience. It holds to its promise of no odor, and the fabric feels lightweight and soft when worn. The downsides are mildly premium pricing, limited range of women’s sizes, and a few pocket sizing and seam quirks to iron out. It may not be the best choice for casual athleisure wear in India, but anyone with a regular workout schedule will appreciate Athlos as an option for their workout wardrobe.

I found Scoopski Edible Cookie Dough to be a novelty product that has some work to do in terms of pricing, packaging, and manufacturing before it appeals to me, as well as the wider market. Priced at ₹300-400 for a 300g jar, it does not override my desire for getting a pre-baked high-quality cookie at the nearby bakery just yet.
I found Gouri’s Goodies Assorted Energy Bites to be delicious, filling and are a welcome addition to my pre-workout or travel snack roster. With each bite between 30-40 kcal, 2 bites have me quickly sated. Priced at ~₹20 per bite, it feels like its worth it. Keep in mind, the chocolate bites melt easily and most of the bites have dairy, nuts, and invert syrup. Also it’s for energy, not protein.
If you already have a prescription and are okay with using their 14-day return policy, like a trial room – Lenskart makes it a breeze to buy high-quality spectacles online at a great price.
With attractive and functional packaging and high efficacy, I found Rouh essential oils to be a worthy investment for indulgent massages, to treat the odd affliction or make the house smell great.
Are these shots wellness in a modern, portable format? It didn’t feel like it to us on a sustainable long-term level, especially with them priced at a premium. But telling ourselves to drink one or two of these shots every day could be fun.
I discovered that baby proofing houses in India for toddlers can be easily done – DIY – with compatible products off Amazon or First Cry. The downside? There is no guarantee on the materials used.
