Improves skin texture
Gentle on skin
I have struggled with acne from my teenage years. I tried many home remedies, but some of them only made it worse. Doctors prescription meds would make me nauseous, and the creams would work till I used them. Eventually, I lost hope and made peace with it. But somewhere at the back of my mind, my acne would still bother me.
Then I heard about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. I used this for 2 weeks before dropping in a review. This cleans the skin gently by removing oil and dirt. The skin will feel fresh, but it will be dry, ‘cause acne is caused by oil in the pores, and this removes it all. So a follow up with toner and moisturizer is a must.
The ones who have been suffering from acne like me will know that it is recommended to find a face wash with salicylic acid. This face wash has it, and that's what causes the drying of the skin. But these chemicals are needed to cure acne.
This is a cost-effective and sure shot way to manage your acne problems. Go ahead and try out one bottle to see results. Wait for two weeks to take a call on the same.
Wide shade range
I always envied those people who had a HG foundation that they had been using since years and didn’t have to look for anything else. For the kind of skin I have, I never found a foundation that was just perfect. Everything had some or the other downside, and I had lost all hope of finding THE foundation for my skin.
When I came across Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15, I didn’t have any expectations. As I said, I had lost all hopes. But, things changed. First things first, I found the perfect match for my skin tone (unbelievable). Next, this product is paraben-free, so I could use it without any worries. It comes with SPF and is sweat, humidity and water-resistant. So far, everything was okay.
I used the foundation on my skin, and it blended like butter. The product vanished off the surface, leaving no visible marks, spots, or imperfections. It didn’t feel heavy, did not enlarge my pores, and didn’t settle into fine lines. I set it with my loose powder and left it. Usually, my skin tends to get oily in 4-5 hours, and that’s when the foundation shows its true colors. But this one didn’t get affected by the oil, sweat, or time. It just stayed as it was.
I used it for four consecutive days to see if it actually worked every day and it didn’t fail me. This is my HG foundation. It is the perfect match for my skin color and skin type, doesn’t cause breakouts, doesn’t clog pores, and doesn’t transfer. I love love love this!
Easy to apply
Great color pay-off
No creasing or caking
I love eyeshadows. Although I don’t wear one every day, I know it is one product that can magically transform any look. And take you from girl-next-door to party ready in minutes. I have a great collection of eyeshadow palettes, and I keep adding more to my stash. I recently got my hands on this NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadows, and I got six shades from the range - After Party, Electroshock, Raven, Bling, Bonfire, and Cupcake.
All of these are brilliant colors. These shades are perfect for creating different looks that can go well with day looks and night outs. The first thing that attracted me to these tiny magic packs was their packaging. It’s so smart and attractive. How can one resist these shades? I love how it is so easy to carry them around.
And not just the packaging, their performance is also commendable. These colors are greatly pigmented, and only a few strokes are enough to get you the look you want. I use primer on my eyelids, place the product with a brush, and blend with my finger. It’s easier that way. These powdery textured shadows are easy to blend with each other (I mostly use more than one color), and set well. They stay put for at least 6 hours and do not crease or cake.
There is nothing I do not like about these eyeshadows. Tiny packaging, great color pay-off, easy to carry around, and affordable. Love them!
I have always liked Lotus products as they are completely herbal and pocket-friendly. The brand has some amazing products, which do their job wonderfully without forcing you to spend a ton of money. For reasons like this, I bought the Lotus Make-up Pure Colors Matte Lip Color without a second thought.
It is a tiny little lipstick available in convenient packaging in some amazing colors. The ones I bought are Melon Flirt and Nude Shine. The quantity for this price range is pretty decent. I use Nude Shine more frequently than the other. I wear it to work, and it goes very well with my formal outfits.
The colors are highly pigmented, just one stroke is enough. The shea butter, jojoba and vitamin E keep my lips moisturized for as long as the lipstick is on and there is no drying and chapping.
Although these lipsticks are great for everyday wear and are very affordable, these do not last long on your lips. The creamy formula does not dry and stains everything your lips get in touch with (cups, tissues, hands, straws). And once you have your supper, the lipstick wears off. There is no way you can stay without reapplying.
All in all, it’s a fine product for the price it comes at, and if you do not mind re-touching, you should definitely try some of these shades.
Moisturizes skin well
Provides medium to full coverage
Not suitable for oily skin
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.
Easy to rinse off
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.
Does not make your skin feel stretched out
Does not deliver on claims
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.
Provides decent coverage
Effects last for just 3-4 hours
White initials fade off after a while
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.
Does not cause breakouts
Can be used as a primer
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.
Does not cause breakouts
Gets absorbed quickly
All day hydration
No long-term effect
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.
Not 100% tear-free
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.
Does not cause breakouts
Can be used under makeup
Nourishes your skin
Makes your skin look radiant
Can be used as a night cream
Not long-lasting results
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.
Does not clog pores
Not entirely fragrance-free
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.
Easy on the pocket
Texture is runny
Does not control the oil
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.
Imparts shine to hair
Prevents hair fall
Improves the texture of the hair
I have long black hair and to get that, it took me years of patience. So, I treasure it with my heart, and I make sure that I know all about what I use on it. Lately, I have been experiencing hair fall like never before. To cope with it, I purchased Khadi Natural Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo three weeks back.
The packaging is classic and straightforward. It comes in a bottle which looks black, but actually it’s transparent. Because of the dark green texture of the shampoo, the bottle looks black. The consistency is lightly creamy, and a little goes a long way.
The smell is quite unappealing as it is a herbal product. It smells like hair oil, but it stays for just 2/3 hours, so it is not a major problem.
Right after the first few washes, I felt the difference. Not in my hair fall but in the texture of my hair. It looks more jet black for some reason, and the way my hair is shining is what I like about this shampoo. I feel like my hair’s health has drastically improved.
The changes in hair fall came later in the second week. IT WORKED!
I love this shampoo as it is benefitting me. I am going to continue using it and will stick to it for a while.
Protects the skin from harmful sun rays
Does not irritate the skin
Makes the skin smooth
Is absorbed quickly
Gives a matte finish
Gives instant fairness
Ever since I have shifted to the city, my skin has drastically become dull. So, on my lookout for skin care products, I came across Garnier Skin Naturals Light Complete Fairness Serum Cream SPF 19. It seemed mild, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. The overall look was packaged well.
The outer box comes with fairness scale which helps in keeping track of the progress, so I was all up for measuring the lightning progress.
Sadly, the scale was of no use. The process of checking the progress was confusing. The colors on the scale are not relevant to my actual skin tone, so I didn’t know where to start.
Other than that, the cream itself is a pretty decent one. Of course, I didn’t see any changes within a week, but after a month’s use, my skin feels better in terms of the texture and the look of it.
I am going to purchase it again as of all the fairness creams I have used, this is the best for me.
Cleans the scalp well
Hair stays tamed for three days
Does not damage the hair
Over the years, I have changed my shampoo a hundred times! And being an expert in this field, I am going to review Tresemme Keratin Smooth Infusing Shampoo. I specifically chose this shampoo because my frizzy hair is stubborn and untamable. Of all the shampoos I have used, some of them have succeeded in giving me positive results. My hair feels smooth, and my scalp feels clean, but that’s about it. Even if it feels soft on touch, the look of my hair stays otherwise.
So, the first time I used this shampoo, the fragrance cast a spell on me! I loved it instantly, if not for anything else, this shampoo will surely earn points for its fragrance. The process of massaging and rinsing was easy like with any other shampoos. I don’t blow dry my hair because of my frizz, so I let it naturally dry naturally.
After it dried, I started combing my hair. My first reaction to this process was ‘No kidding!’ I mean, when I started brushing my hair, it felt so smooth, and my hair fall was reduced by half. The whole day, my hair felt light, clean and beautiful. Even if I have thin hair, because of my frizz, it looks like I have a lot of hair. But from the first use itself, my hair stayed true to its volume.
Now I am using this shampoo for over a month, and the way it has benefited me is almost surreal. If I were to compare my hair from before and now, there is such a prominent difference. Not only on the way it looks but also the way my hair feels.
Tresemme Keratin Smooth Infusing Shampoo is a safe bet. It has become my personal favorite.
Quick hair growth
Lightens dark spots
Brightens the skin
I have combination skin. As Kaya Pigmentation Reducing Complex is on the higher end of the price spectrum, I was reluctant to purchase it. But my colleague insisted that I do, so finally, I went for it. I think the packaging can be different because its size is a bit bigger for the quantity it contains. Rest assured, Kaya Pigmentation Reducing Complex night cream does what it claims. I apply this night cream religiously! And I think because of my consistency, I got quicker results. My skin never felt so much radiant and alive. The spots I had from my acne are all gone, and my pores have tightened as well. It is worth the price.
Makes hair thicker
Strong herbal smell
I used to have a big issue with dandruff. I used to tie my hair cause of dandruff. But now, thanks to this oil, I can leave my hair free. I used many products to resolve it, but it never worked. While some stopped it, the effect was only temporary and it would return. A friend suggested Himalaya’s Anti-Dandruff Hair Oil. It is a life saver. It reduced my dandruff by 95% within the first four weeks. No more tied hair for me! It contains tea tree oil, which is the best cure for dandruff. The oil has given me black, lush hair and removed dandruff. I most definitely recommend this product to anyone who has dandruff. I love it! It is cost effective as well. You can find the list of ingredients and the instructions for use on the box. The oil is thin in consistency and can be spread easily.
