Every day, there is some new cosmetic being launched. And like most of us, I want to try everything. I have three-four products just for my eyebrows! A big problem while traveling! So, when I find a multipurpose product, I immediately go for it. And Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick is one of those products.I got it in two shades – natural tan and honey. Natural tan for my whole face and honey for contouring. I use it for concealing as well. It has been over a month of using this foundation stick, and I still can’t stop admiring it. My dry skin LOVES it!I was a little worried that my dry-and-combination skin wouldn’t receive it well. But the texture is creamy, and it moisturizes my skin, giving me a glowy finish. I bet all dry skin types will love it. I can’t say the same for oily skin, though.I don’t have skin problems as such, just some redness around my T-line and chin. This foundation stick easily covers that up and lasts the entire day. When I use the darker shade i.e., honey, for contouring, it gives me no problem in blending.Altogether, Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick is my favorite foundation! It is practical, functional and stays very true to all its claims.
I have oily skin that is very prone to acne. I don’t remember a day where my skin was completely pimple free. As I am writing this review, I am looking at my face in the mirror and smiling.I always keep scrounging for products that will make my skin clean and pimple-free. I got my hands on this tea tree face wash from The Body Shop. I was very impressed with the packaging. It is sleek, easy and sturdy. It gives a sense of highly concentrated product which is good. The quantity justifies the price as well. The consistency is gel-like, so on application, there is no chance of any wastage. The fragrance is a little strong, but it subsides after a minute.I first used this face wash before going to bed and woke up with less oiliness than regular days. And I was like, “that’s a good start.” I rarely write reviews, but this one deserves every bit of my time and opinion. After a month's use, this Tea Tree cleanser is making my skin the way I want it to be.I eventually got the night blemish fade lotion and pore minimizer from the same Tea Tree range. Everything combined is the best thing that is happening to my skin right now. In the morning, I use the cleanser to wash my face, followed by the lotion and the same routine for the night with the pore minimizer instead of the lotion.My skin is smoother, cleaner, and almost flawless. Now I can confidently take selfies without any filters! I recommend these products to those who have bad breakouts. It is worth every penny and cheaper than visiting a derma.
Lotus Herbals is a known brand to me. I have used their sunscreens and chapsticks and they all won my heart. When I got my hands on Lotus Herbals Whiteglow 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Skin Whitening Facial Foam, I was very keen to experience more positive results.Want to know if this facial foam was just as good as the others? Read further to find out.So, I have been using this facial foam for over three weeks now. This face wash comes in a sleek tube and it has a runny consistency. Though the consistency is runny, the tube can be carried around because the cap closes securely.I use this face wash early in the morning and before I end my day. So far, I have a 50-50 feeling about this facial form. I kind of like it because it cleanses my face very well without leaving any oily residue. It also does not make my face feel stretchy. But I have not seen any changes yet on my complexion and the dark spots on my cheeks.It does lighten my skin a little bit right after I wash it off, but that effect fades away soon after. Now that is something I don’t like. Another minus point about this product is that Lotus Herbals claims to be chemical-free but I see it contains parabens and it is not soap-free. Such disappointment!After I finish off the tube I have, I will not repurchase it.
I love almost all products from NYX, from foundations to lip colors. When I purchased NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation, I was pretty relaxed because I knew it would work just fine. Selecting my shade was a little difficult because of the range it had to offer. For some, it might be positive, but it just was confusing for me. I chose SMP 07PT5 FRESH BEIGE for Beige with yellow undertones. I hoped I chose the right shade and thankfully, it was.Coming to the packaging, I will say that it’s nothing fancy. After a while, the white initials of NYX fade. The sponge available is convenient. It minuses the extra expense of getting a brush. But since I already have a setting brush, I use that. Sometimes when I go out, I use the sponge for touch-ups. It gives me medium coverage and blots away all the extra shine.I have oily skin, so I need no extra moisture. But with this Powder foundation, I need a primer. I tried it without primer, and it just didn’t feel right. After primer, I go ahead with my makeup regimen and use NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation as a setting powder. I tried using just the powder foundation, but it didn’t work well in covering my blemishes, so a foundation is required.I always need to touch up after 3-4 hours. Though it claims to be a powder foundation, I will not agree with it because it’s like any other powder compact. Yes! For the first few hours, I like how it sets my whole makeup. And since I have oily skin, it works so well. But it last just for a few hours.Overall, it is a decent compact to replace the expensively branded compacts. I’m not sure if I will repurchase NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte but Not Flat Powder Foundation.
I use Aroma Treasures Aloe Vera Gel as my primer. I save a lot of money using this as my primer and also it works just as good as any other expensive beauty products. Sometimes, I dilute it and store it in a spray container just to refresh my skin while traveling or working.
Ladies, do you spend more money on clothes or cosmetics? Well, I am guilty of spending an equal amount on both. Basically, I live way above my means. But YOLO! (Just to clarify, I am not encouraging you to throw away your money randomly.)So, one of my purchases from last month was Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Since then, I have been using it every day. I have very oily skin, so much so that within a few minutes of wash my face and applying makeup, my skin looks shiny again. It’s annoying!Did Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel work for me? Yes, it certainly did. Let’s talk about its packaging first. I got the tube because I wanted to tell myself that I saved some money if it didn't work. The tube is beige with a screw silver cap. It works well because it does not get messy and the size is convenient.I was very impressed with its light gel texture. I dislike creamy moisturizers even during the winter season because I have oily skin. This gel-moisturizer glides on my skin with ease, and though it is dry season now, it is giving my skin the right amount of moisture that it needs.I haven’t seen any effect on my pimples, but it didn’t break me out, so I have no problem. Regarding my oil secretion, to be honest, it controls the oil for a solid three to four hours which is pretty high considering how fast my skin gets oily. But I am very doubtful if it is a long-term solution. I say this because there are days I just stay at home without applying this moisturizer and my skin got just as oily as before.So the conclusion is, you need to use it everyday.
When I became a new mother, I had a variety of Johnson’s products for my daughter – from powder to shampoo. Now, she is four years old. We have changed a lot of products over time, but the shampoo remains.Over these four years, my daughter experienced no harm from any of these products. The container is easy to use, and the pump dispenser makes it very convenient. The smell is also not too strong, so it doesn't cause any disturbance to my daughter. I feel like my daughter’s hair is well cleansed and the scalp gets the hydration it requires.There are no harmful chemicals in the shampoo, so overall, I feel like it’s a good shampoo for her.
I use Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-In-Creme as my day cream as well as a night cream. It works very well under my makeup too. I have been using it for a month now, and my skin feels healthier.But, here is the big BUT - the effect lasts only when you have the cream on. It does not give long-term results. So I need to keep using it without changing my moisturizer. And also, the price is high, considering the quantity.Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-In-Creme is not a miracle cream, but it does give positive results on application. For me, it is just an ordinary cream.
I remember Neutrogena entering the market with such a bang! I love their line of products.I started using Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Moisturiser SPF 15 two months back. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it.I love the packaging so much! Finally, a product that checks off all the criteria of convenient and hygienic packaging. I especially love the twist lock system. It is fancy, innovative and professional.I have oily-combination skin, I mean, my skin sometimes tends to be oily throughout and sometimes, just around my T-zone area. So finding a suitable moisturizer is difficult. Now that I found Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Moisturiser SPF 15, I am not looking back.This cream has become my daily moisturizer. I use it for every occasion, even during night outs. The texture is so light and does not weigh my skin down, so it works perfectly. I use it under my makeup too. Normally, I never do that, but with this cream, I never feel heavy.Just one pump is sufficient for my face and neck. Though the cream claims to have no fragrance, my sensitive nose did catch some mild scent. I don’t bother because it is mild and fades away within 10-15 minutes.This Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Moisturiser SPF 15 keeps my skin soft, hydrated and protected. I am so pleased with this moisturizer.
I never really had a problem with my hair until recently when my scalp started itching and getting oily very soon. I thought maybe it’s the water problem. But the moment I changed my shampoo to Himalaya Herbals Anti-Dandruff Soothing Shampoo, my problem was resolved.This shampoo has visibly reduced itching and controlled my oiliness up to some level. Since I have very oily hair, I have to wash my hair every day otherwise, it gets greasy and dull and spoils my entire day.I don’t have a severe dandruff condition so whatever bit I had disappeared within three weeks’ time. The smell is mild, so it doesn’t bother me, and the consistency is a bit runny. I wish the texture could be creamy because sometimes I tend to spill it off my palm while applying on the scalp.Other than that, I am satisfied with this shampoo as it has worked the way I want it to.
I have acne, will this product work for me?
(Question for Fem Fairness Naturals Saffron Creme Bleach )
Do not try this product without consulting a dermatologist. It is not specifically made for acne-prone skin, so it is always better to check with a specialist.
