Soulfull Millet Smoothix Review. A New Launch from Soulfull.


Chronic MS and 5 PM Hunger pangs… are the two things that I am seriously struggling with. They both go hand in hand to churn up troubles for me you know. Here’s how: The MS Fatigue pumps in right when i think that i am out of my Afternoon Nap Mode and am ready to whip up a snack for myself. They never fail to succeed in leaving me like a ‘Bhooka Fakir’ for the rest of the evening. I know i know…Swiggy/Zomato/Uber eats exist but, how long can you survive on the same junk everyday!?  So, when someone throws you a 1 minute No-Junk snack product, you feel blessed. Don’t you? I Sure Did. Here’s my Review of the Bangalore based health food brand Soulfull’s new launch: Millet Smoothix.

2 single serve sachets in a Free shaker. This shaker set's price is 60/- INR. Also, it comes in a 5 sachet carton without a shaker too which costs 150/- INR.


The cap of this shaker is completely spill-proof. So, you need not worry when you shake things up. ;)


This is how the Millet Smoothix powder looks like.


This is a 350 ml shaker and i made around 250 ml smoothie with Hot milk and jaggery to taste. I felt that 200 ml to 300 ml would be the right range depending on your taste. For me, 225 ml was perfectly balanced.

Review:
Soulfull is a brand that is very dear to my Heart because, The SoulfullBanana Ragi flakes has been my most favourite breakfast flakes from the past 4+ years.Now, they’ve launched a range of evening snack products. This Millet Smoothix is one of them.

The Soulfull Millet Smoothix is an Instant smoothie powder which is made up of a chockfull of healthiest ingredients that have been bombarding the headlines these days: Millets. Millets are the oldest known superfood in India. From Granny to Farmer, millets are everyone’s best food choice. Along with millets, this smoothie mix contains 12 grains, cereals, pulses and jaggery. Comes in 'Almond' and 'Chocolate' flavours.

Enjoy it with Cold or Hot Milk. 

You waiting for the Taste judgement? Ha ha…here it is:

LOVE IT! LOVE IT!! LOOOOOVVVVEEEE IT!!!

It tastes Comforting and Smooth. The BEST part is: It doesn’t have Cardamom like every other health drink out there in the market. I don’t like it. I gag whenever I have any health drink that has cardamom in it.(I Love Cardamom Chai and Thandai though.)

My 5 PM Hunger pangs are Taken Care of Forever by the Soulfull Millet Smoothix. One Happy Human i feel like!

And, Being a Chronic MS patient, cooking breakfast is also out of my bounds. So, I just eat a little cereal like the Soulfull Banana flakes or when i am too lazy, i just gulp  down a glass of warm milk with Boost. That’s it. They say it is the secret of their energy but, in my case, it failed to give me the necessary energy to pop out of my fatigue mode. Instead, all that it did was: "Increase the number of cavities". X-( So, this Soulfull Millet Smoothix has been a God-sent product for me on my Lazy Days. Keeps me Full and Energetic till lunch. #HungerSatisfied #SmartFood

And also, Good Food is the Secret of Good Skin! So, i might as well call it a Beauty Smoothie! ;D

Do i Recommend?  
Definitely! My Love can not be Measured with any existing unit! The Soulfull Millet Smoothix has Made my life Infinite Times Easier and Healthier. I have Definitely Found a New FAVOURITE from soulfull! And, this Millet Smoothix is going to hold that place For a Verrrrrryyyyyyy Long Time! <3 This Happy Human wants to make many more Humans Happy by Suggesting This Soulfull Millet Smoothix to Banish their Hunger Pangs!

Conclusion:
Free of Additives, Fillers Preservatives and Sugar, The Soulfull Millet Smoothix is a Pure Health Treat with a super Affordable Price tag! *Thumbs Up!*

Dire Need of the Hour: Population Control - World Population Day 2018.


Heading towards the Peaks of Population Explosion, We Humans better Re-Wire Our Minds/Lives and Think Beyond Family Expansion While realizing that this Planet belongs to Not Just Us but Other Creatures too. In fact, We NEED those Creatures for Us to Survive. If They are Gone, We are Gone. But, an Interesting Fact is that if We are Gone, Them and the Planet, Both will Flourish. Read on for More Such Information with Statistics Included.

World Population Day, July 11, 2018.
*This is a picture taken by me, of a fallen Jack fruit from my Backyard. Just Picturize that the Round Fruit is Earth and the Gap less Spikes are Human Beings.

Just Imagine we've got only that much space left after Human Population Mega Explosion! Just an imagination though...Because, Nature would've taken care of such a Dire Situation in it's own way. :P

Read on the Article below by Sadhguru Jaggi vasudev of Isha Foundation. I chose to Re-post His Article because, i couldn't have written it better.
Article Source: isha.sadhguru.org
July 11 is World Population Day. In this excerpt of a speech on population, Sadhguru looks at how planning out the family and taking charge of human birth are very important aspects if we are to control human numbers.
Sadhguru: I have been at any number of conferences where people talk of various dangers that we are facing, such as water and environmental conservation, but what pains me is, no government wants to address the most fundamental problem – population.

World Population Day Stats: India & the World

In the early 20th century, the world’s population was 1.6 billion people. Today, a century later, we are 7.3 billion people. The United Nations is projecting that by 2050, we will be 9.8 billion people. I think this is just irresponsible reproduction of humanity. In India, in 1947, we were 330 million. Today, we are 1.3 billion. It doesn’t matter how many policies you change, what kind of technologies you bring, how many trees you plant there is simply no solution unless we put a cap on human population.

Either we control our population consciously, or nature will do it in a very cruel manner. This is all the choice there is. In India particularly, right now, 60% of our land is ploughed, just to feed these 1.3 billion people. Our farmers, with rudimentary, totally ramshackle infrastructure, are producing food for over one billion people. 


This chart shows the population in 2017 and forecast for 2050 | World Population Day: Sadhguru's Speech

This is an absolutely commendable fact, but still, the man who produces food is not eating properly. That is not a commendable fact; that is not something to be proud of. The people who produce food for all of us, the rice or wheat that we are eating today, their own children don’t eat a full stomach. This is essentially because we have not taken the responsibility of deciding, “Okay, this much land – how much population can we support?” It definitely cannot support an endless growth of human population.

World Population Day: Earth Is Not Just For Humans

This idea that the planet is made only for human beings is a very gross idea. It has been put into people’s minds, saying that “you are created in God’s image”. I am sure even a worm is thinking God looks like a large worm! 


Biodiversity: Life ­– a status report | World Population Day: Sadhguru's Speech
Credit: Nature.com

We need to understand – not just for ecological reasons, for the sake of your humanity – that every creature on this planet has a complete life of its own. Even an insect has a total life of its own – a whole lot of things are happening in his life. Just because someone is smaller or looks different from you, thinking he has no right to live and only you have a right to live here, is a very gross way to exist for humanity. Humanity devoid of humanity, that’s what humanity is today. Unless humanness is brought forth, I don’t think things like controlling human population consciously will happen. 

World Population Day: How Do We Control Population?

Governments have to make policies. But just policies are not sufficient. They cannot enforce these kinds of things in a democracy. These kinds of things will only work if there is a campaign to bring the necessary awareness. But people in the government definitely have to put the idea forth. Private agencies and NGOs can do a few things, but governmental action is needed. 
Talking about ecology, land conservation or water conservation without controlling human population is not going to make a difference because the kind of impetus that is there in the form of science and technology is making every human being hyperactive. You cannot cap human activity because that will amount to capping human aspirations. You can only cap human population. 

World Population Day: Taking Charge of Birth

Ecological conservation, green technologies, all these things are definitely needed, but addressing the most fundamental thing, that we have multiplied four times over and we have done nothing about it, and are still continuing to multiply, is the biggest problem.
In 1947, the life expectancy of an average Indian was 32 years. Today, it has crossed 65. So we took charge of death, but we should have also taken charge of birth. Today, you neither have enough buses, land, toilets, temples or even a sufficient piece of sky for 1.3 billion people. 
The only thing we can do is – are we going to adjust our population to the resource that we have? That is something that every human being can do if the necessary education and awareness is brought into their lives. If that investment is made, we don’t have to plant trees. The planet is not in peril, it is human life which is in peril. This is something human beings need to understand. I hope we wake up to this fact and do what is needed.
So, Let's WAKE UP TO THIS FACT and Do What is Needed.
*
Editor's Note: Read this article, where Sadhguru answers, if it is necessary that a family should have more children or is just one child sufficient?

Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Active Silver Ion Deodorant Cream Review. A Boon for Chronic/Bed-ridden Patients and Trekkers


Featuring in the Background: My Organic Mint patch. :)

Do you consider any product GOD? I Do: The Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Active Silver Ion Deodorant Cream is MY GOD.

Read on to know how this little jar of Natural Deodorant Cream Earned the GOD Status!

Comes in a plastic jar with a golden cap. The Outer casing containing this jar is made of cardboard.

Ingredients: Don't miss the Real Silver Leaves! <3 and Don't panic with Phenoxyethanol because as per EWG's Skin Deep database, it is a low hazard ingredient. And, Silver has been used to keep bacterial infections at bay in medical sciences for a long time. I remember the 'Silverex' Ointment that was prescribed to my mom when she burnt her hand pretty badly. It is a Safe Biocide.

Super Creamy Texture.



The Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Active Silver Ion Deodorant Cream Review:

Being a Chronic MS Patient, i struggle to take a bath every day. Sometimes i Can't bath for 2-3 whole days and as an obvious result, i manage to reach the Peaks of Stink. Since i can't stand and am against Chemical Deodorants, I tried Natural powders, Essential oils and what not! None of them worked beyond one hour. I tried managing by wiping my underarms with a wet towel but to no avail. I was feeling super frustrated and i just couldn't stand this situation anymore.

And just then, Like God appears in Bollywood movies when you are at the peaks of your difficulties, this Natural Deodorant Cream appeared in my life!(Actually Instagram. :P) From then, i am feeling Blessed! Yes, Blessed. Might sound Cinematic but, that is how i can express my gratitude towards this product.

It controls the Body Odor for almost 12+ hours!(with at least one Re-Application). The Underarm Odor was nil till 8 hours for me and after that a faint hint of odor started to seep out. A wet cloth wipe and one more Re-Application gave me another 5-6 hours. Wet cloth wipe is not mandatory.

This is why i call it a Boon/GOD for Chronic patients and Bed-ridden ones. And also people who go on Adventure treks where they don't get to bath for many days can also carry this God product with them. It's a Boon for Anyone who does full-on physical activities and also to those who can Do None.

Warning: Do not apply on Genitals. You can apply Around them but Never 'On' them.

You need very little product. About a Pea size. So, this jar will last you a very long time. At least six months for sure.

*After application, You have to massage it in for about 2-3 seconds for it to get absorbed completely.

It's scent is pleasant Sweet Mint and Lemon which is not too strong. Sensitive noses may handle it with ease. The mild fragrance stays for a long time.

Though it looks like a flashy white thick cream, it doesn't give a white cast or stain clothes. Look at the pictures below:

Freshly Applied.

After 10 mins, 99% of the white cast is gone. (They are my manly fingers. No Wax, No Manicures. Just Raw and Rugged.)

Note:
This Product's Level of Effectiveness depends on many factors like: Level of Natural Body Odor, Level of Physical Activity and Number of days you did not take a bath. But still, i would say it will almost work it's best in Extreme situations too.


So, Do I Recommend?

Heaven Yes! Yes! and Yes! The Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Active Silver Ion Natural Deodorant Cream beats all the Chemical Deodorants on all levels. You may not find another equivalent in the Indian Market right now. So, Just buy yourself a jar and Un-Stink away to Glory!

P.S: Seer Secrets has become my Most Favourite Affordable Natural Skincare Brand!

Rating: Without Doubt, 100/100! I never ever gave a hundred to any product till now!

Price324/-INR.

Availability: Get it for 299/- INR at Qtrove.com, Also available on: Amazon.in and Nykaa.com

Please feel free to ask any kind of doubts regarding the Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Active Silver Ion Deodorant Cream. :)

Seer secrets Raw Mango, Paprika and Mint Lip Plumper Review. One Hot Lippy Deal!



A Lip Plumper with Raw Mango, Paprika and Mint! Doesn't that Sound like a traditional Indian Achar/Pickle Recipe with a Minty Twist to it!? :P Let us see how us Indians who are expert "Achar/Chilli devour"ers can handle this Hot Lippy Deal. ;D

Ingredients:


Gives a faint Rosy-brown tint when applied.

Seer secrets Raw Mango, Paprika and Mint Lip Plumper Review:
When i first saw that this product has Raw Mango, Paprika and Mint as it's Ingredients, i was intrigued because, that resembled a pickle recipe. Being an Andhrite, i have devoured my fair share of spiciest pickles all my life and not to forget the humongous amounts of chillies. But, after Multiple sclerosis, my tounge's ability to handle chillies did not waver a bit but, my skin's ability to handle some products did waver to a large extent.

So, when i first applied this Natural Seer Secrets Lip plumper, my sensitive lips couldn't handle the Burning sensation even for a few seconds. It felt like a pinch of chilli powder has been applied to my lips. But, i did not want to give up. So, one day i thought why not apply a thin layer of normal lip balm and then apply this on top. I did it and it solved my woes of burning sensation up to 90%. I wanted to see if other people felt the same too and gave it to my friends and family. None of them felt the burning to the extent that i did. They only felt a mildest burn that they could not even feel until i asked them. So, only people with sensitive skin need to be a little careful.

And as for the plumping part, Yes, it Works. Now don't Imagine Kim Kardashian or our own Anushka Sharma's Injected 'Pillow'y/'Plastic'y Lips. Regular use does mildly plump up your lips and it smoothens out lip lines naturally. It gives a faint Rosy-brown tint to the lips which isn't really noticeable.

Use it along with the Seer Secrets Rambutan, Dates and Liquorice Lip Scrub for best results.

Do i Recommend?
Yes, if you are looking for some natural product that can naturally enhance the look of your lips.

Rating: 4.5/5

Availability: Amazon.in
