Helps my oily skin

I have been using the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap for oily-combination skin with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel since the beginning of this year. It is costly, but the way my oily skin is responding to it is impressive. So I feel it’s totally worth it. Anything for my skin!

But this isn’t as perfect as I’m making it sound. The gel-moisturizer does have some flaws - it does not have SPF! It is essential to have sun protection in every moisturizing formula, especially for oily to combination skin. And also, though it claims to be fragrance-free, that’s not entirely true. It does have some sort of smell.

Will I repurchase? Not sure, I might look for a better alternative. But I’m keeping the facewash.


Hygienic packaging



Suitable for oily skin



Not fragrance-free



Has a bad chemical smell.

I have been using this product for over a month, so with the experience I will say that in terms of texture it feels light, same as Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.

However, this product has a strong chemical smell which I found unpleasant. It also takes a longer time to get absorbed into the skin and sometimes it feels sticky. I regret purchasing it.





Takes time to get absorbed

Chemical smell

Can get sticky




Does nothing for dandruff or hair fall

This Patanjali shampoo is a 50-50 for me. I like how it nourishes my dry hair. After every wash, my hair feels silky and soft. Even when I oil my hair, this shampoo washes the oil off very easily. And its fragrance lingers for long.

The thing I don’t like about this shampoo is that it did not treat my dandruff and hair fall.

So, that way it is not a perfect shampoo. Its price is not much so I understand why it is not giving me results.


Makes hair soft and silky

Pleasant fragrance

Suitable for dry hair

Vouch for it

Lakme Liquid Foundation gives full coverage. It does not make my skin feel heavy. My mother once complimented me saying my skin looks smooth and when I said that it’s because of Lakme Liquid Foundation, she replied saying that this foundation is classic. I agree with her. Though an old product, it still stays true to its claim of providing smooth, polished and natural looking skin till today. For its true nature, I will always vouch for it.



Easily available


Good coverage


Inconvenient packaging
