Awesome

This 124ml of daily scrub is really good in exfoliating purpose. Like its other acne-control products, this also has salicylic acid as one of the main ingredients. This ingredient is considered to be good for treating acne and other acne-related symptoms. Its gentle microbeads exfoliate gently and remove dead skin and other impurities of the skin. The result is soft and smoother skin. It makes my oily skin bright as well. I feel fresh and clean after its usage and this work best as a makeup remover too. Regular use of this face scrub can give you notable outcomes. It is a multi-tasking scrub which not only treats present acne but also emerging acne and previous acne spots. This gives a healthier-looking skin. Although this face scrub is quite expensive to buy as it is a result-oriented product, one can spend this big amount. I am using this product from past 3 months, and I am so happy with this product as it has made me oil-free during the hot and humid weather and keeping acne at bay. I will recommend this product to all those who are suffering from acne and other acne-related symptoms.

Very effective

Neutrogena cleanser comes in a plastic tube of 200ml with an active ingredient of Salicylic Acid which is good for treating acne and blemishes. This tube has the necessary information about the product is imprinted on it. The flip-open cap is sturdy enough to carry this product while travelling. It is capable enough to prevent an accidental spill. The texture of this cleanser is neither too thick nor too runny. This white colour cleanser has a dominant smell with a hint of menthol. On application, a sense of tingling effect can be felt but it is harmless. This tingling effect makes me doubtful about its suitability on sensitive skin. The cleanser makes sufficient lather o wash. The quantity needed is also quite less. So this whole 200ml of the pack continues for a pretty long time. With regular usage, it prevents breakouts and any skin dryness problems. It does not clog pores as well. It cleanses the face deeply by removing all dirt and dust. The only cons which I can feel about this product are its tingling effect on the skin and its dominant smell. Otherwise, the rest is all well and satisfactory.

Not effective at all

Many of us judge the product, just with its brand name and some keywords like ‘organic’ Ayurved’ ‘herbal’. In actual, we should not do the same, as not every product with these products are genuine and worthy enough to try. Same it goes for Dabur Ashwagandha Churna. We know, Dabur is an old brand and offers many good products, which are good and effective enough to use. But this particular of the Dabur's is not up to the satisfaction. This churna comes in a big plastic jar of 100g with all necessary information imprinted on the bottle. It says that this product will help in improving stamina and strength. Ideally, it should be consumed two times in a day with warm water. Ut despite using the same regularly for 4 to 5 weeks, I did not see any kind increased stamina in me. I was still getting tired soon and used to get lethargic every time. So this time I was quite disappointed by this old and reputed brand's product. Because we have certain brands in the market that are simply continuing simply on the basis of trust. So, I do not think this product does justice with the brand name as well as with its content.

Not satisfactory

This shampoo comes in a sachet of 5ml which retails for INR 5 and it is especially meant for men. The brand says that this this shampoo is enriched with green tea. Furthermore, this is ammonia free as well so pretty safe than other dyes. This shampoo has adds black pigmentation which colours the hairs beards and moustaches without causing any side effect. The application process is also pretty simple. You just need to wet your beard and moustaches, take a little amount of this shampoo and gently rub the same into the beards and moustaches. Leave it for 5 to 7 minutes and rinse it off with fresh water. My father had applied this shampoo once into his moustaches, but the results were not at all satisfactory. Moreover, he was experiencing itching too. Next day, some small blisters were also there in that sensitive area. Hence, after knowing my father’s experience on this product, I do not recommend this to anyone, because our facial skin is more sensitive than our scalp and one can take any risk. So NOT RECOMMENDED. Better to go for Indica brand for the same.

Effective but sticky

Usually, I have oily skin but during winters my oily skin too needs some moisturization. That includes my hands too. As while doing household chores and being too much in water-related tasks, I hands get too much dry and rough. One day I came across with Avon Moisture Therapy Healing and Repairing hand cream. I picked it up immediately without giving a second thought as I had used several Avon products earlier. Although it was expensive, I was hopeful for the results keeping my fingers crossed. So let me start with its texture and consistency. It looks like any thick paste which takes some time to get absorbed into the skin. And due to this, some stickiness stays on the hand for five to ten minutes. With the regular use of the product, my skin starts feeling good. And this stickiness also becomes some kind of a usual thing. So, now I can conclude that this hand cream is really good and effective and works very well if you apply it regularly without getting annoyed due to that stickiness in the hand. Hence, I will recommend to those who are living in dry areas or struggling to keep moisturisation of the hand intact.

Effective

Usually, I trust Neutrogena products as they perform pretty well. This time as my foot heel was cracking and the skin was getting rough I thought to give a try to Neutrogena Norwegian Foot Cream. Their claims were intriguing as this foot cream was capable to nourish and moisturise even the driest skin of the feet. I was hopeful for the results as the pain due to the cracked heels is more severe. So I bought its 100ml of the pack which costed me around INR 350 for the same. The packaging was as usual – a white plastic tube with necessary information imprinted. The tube was convenient to use and the process of application was also easy. I had applied this foot cream twice in a day, as per the recommendation of the brand. The cream has a very mild fragrance which has a soothing effect. The cream is quick-absorbing too when it is been properly applied. The required quantity for one time use is also quite minimal. So, after using for the whole two weeks, I found that this cream has done its job. My heels were back to their moisture texture with no more appearance of dryness and crack.

Not suitable for oily skin

Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+ The USP of this product is the broad-spectrum SPF 60+, which hardly any other sunscreen lotion provides. It retails for INR 1700 wherein 88ml of net quantity provided. Although the product packaging itself says that it is oil-free but whenever I apply it on my face, I start sweating a lot. Furthermore, I see a lot of breakouts as well the next morning. The fragrance is very mild and hardly noticeable. It gets vanish soon without being long-lasting. The texture is pretty thick but it gets quickly absorbed by the skin. It does not leave any white cast behind, which usually other sunscreen lotions leave. This sunscreen lotion has to be reapplied every two hours to say protected from harmful UV rays of the sun. You won’t get any tan in between. Hence, for me, this sunscreen was of no use. Though it offers a wide range of protection from the harmful sun rays my skin does not feel good and light. And if I am unable to use sunscreen during the hot and humid weather then what is the actual use of it. So, I feel that this sunscreen lotion is not suitable for oily skin.

Good product

This lacquer from the famous hair care brand ‘Matrix’ is the ultra-shiny inter-mixable semi-permanent hair colour shades. With the usage of these lacquer the whole process of hair colouring becomes very quick and easy. It takes just 20 minutes application for the best results. These lacquers have vivid pigments and stay for a good period of time. The hair feels shiny and refreshed. It does not have much Keratin in it. Hence hair looks much vibrant and beautiful. The packaging is also very convenient and the whole process of application is pretty easy and cool. Before using this product, I was very much in doubt whether this will work on my hair or not. I have already golden-brown touch on my hair. But to my surprise, it worked so well The quantity provided, which is around 88ml, is also very decent and goes well with shoulder-length hair. The price is pretty high but the results are simply amazing. I am sure that next time also I will search for the same. Hence, I will recommend this to all who are looking to add some bold and vibrant hair colours in their look.

Absolutely better than others

I usually do not prefer applying Sunscreen on my face as it makes me sweat a lot and it leads to acne breakouts as well. However, I got to try this sunscreen gel once when I visited my sister’s home. She uses this sunscreen daily as she loves this product a lot. Even when I had applied this sunscreen on my face, I felt that this is far better than the others. Although, it does not control tanning, yes, the redness and the inflammation caused to the exposed skin does not occur. Nor any acne breakout I observed, after using this sunscreen. The fragrance of this sunscreen is not like any medicated sunscreen, rather it is very mild and soothing one, so it won’t bother anyone who is sensitive to the smell. It does not feel sticky on the skin, rather it gets quickly absorbed by the skin making it smooth. If I talk about its packaging and price, then it comes in the usual tube packaging of 60g which retails for INR 690. Although the price and quantity offered are not justified, but if I take the performance into consideration, then definitely this gets a plus point.
