Smell: The cream has a very pleasant smell which doesn’t bother your nostril. Texture and consistency: It has a soft texture with moderate consistency. The texture feels exactly like other BB cream. It comes with only one shade. Hope that matches only light to medium skin tones. But it’s ok. Since it doesn’t give you that much of coverage. Other than that, this cream provides sun protection as well. I wear makeup on a daily basis since I am working. I have to look presentable at my workplace. For every makeup, I prefer BB creams over high coverage foundations. Because it not only gives light buildable coverage but also protect and correct your skin issues. I apply this BB cream all over my clean face and blend with fingertips. The smooth formula doesn’t take much time to blend and settled to a fresh matte finish. This cream manages to hide minor imperfection and spots of my face. It neither leave my face greasy nor patchy. It doesn’t leave any white cast as well. It stays fresh for almost 4 hours then starts fading away.
I’m not very fond of using cream bleach on my super sensitive skin. Once I had a family wedding and I used Fem fairness cream bleach. It gave me good result.

I used this cream bleach since I read some good review about it and its affordable price tag. Now, I’m gonna share my experience on this product. Packaging: It comes in a plastic jar with screw open cap. It comes in with its own spatula for application. In a single pack you get cream bleach, activator which is inside of a small jar and one spatula. You need to mix the activator with cream bleach and then apply it all over your face and neck. Smell: Smell is definitely not appalling. The smell can irritate your nose. First I mixed well the activator with the cream bleach. Then I applied the mixture all over my face using the spatula. It mixture was creamy and smooth, hence applied easily on the skin. I applied a thick coat of this bleach on my face and left for 10 minutes. I set an alarm for that. Just after application I felt slight burning sensation but that was normal according to the brand. So I did not worry that much After 10mins I washed it off with cold water and applied pre-bleach cream which made my skin resolved. After rinsing off, my face looked brighter. My skin complexion became one shade lighter than before. I was really impressed by its final result. What I dislike the most is it made of chemical laden ingredients which may cause skin issues and may aggravate skin problem. But for me it did wonder. I did not have any skin problems or skin irritation just after using this bleach.

This technique makes the consistency of this cream a bit thin and easy to apply. Within some minutes the product gets absorbed completely into my skin. It neither feels heavy on my face nor makes my face sweaty. It moisturised and hydrates my skin very well. I wake up with a fresh supple skin every day. It also dried out few of my acne and pimples and improves skin’s texture. If you are looking for an affordable night cream, you can definitely give it a try.
Suitable for both oily and dry skin types
Open bottle mouth makes it hard to pour out the right amount of foundation
No matter how many foundation I have been using, I always keep coming back to this foundation. Lakme perfecting liquid foundation is the one which has been there in the Indian market since ages. It is probably the first foundation for all of us. It was the first and only foundation that I had when I was in college. It has the nostalgic memories of using a foundation for makeup. I have a mixed feeling about this foundation. It is currently available in 4 shades. I am in medium skin tone and the shade ”shell” suits me pretty well. Packaging: Lakme doesn’t change the packaging of this foundation and it has retained from ages. It comes in a small transparent glass bottle with a marron screw open cap. You need to take out the product directly from the bottle. Hence you need to be care while pour the foundation out of the bottle. Smell: The foundation has a strong cosmetic smell which may irritate your sensitive nose. Texture and consistency: The foundation is liquidy and on the runny side. Since it has a runny consistency, you need to be very very careful while take out the foundation. The texture is moderate. It blends nicely into the skin with a few dabs and strokes. I usually take a pea size amount out on my palm and then apply bots all over my face. I need to give it a good shade before take out the product. Then I take my wet beauty sponge and blend nicely onto my skin. It gives light to slight medium coverage. It doesn’t make my skin oily over time. But one thing, if you try to build up the coverage, it starts looking cakey and patchy. So you need to work on with small amount at a time. This technique gives you a flawless finish. The foundation stays on my combination skin for 2-3 hours then starts fading off.
At different ages, our skin also needs different care and requirements. We should treat our skin with right skincare products which are suitable for skin according our age. During our teenage time, we normally experience pimple, acne and blackheads. And as we enter 30, our skin starts to show early signs of aging. Today I am going to talk about a cream that is suitable for any teenagers. Loreal Paris Skin Perfect Age 20+ day cream is a perfect option for someone who is searching for a day cream to go with her teenage acne prone skin. Packaging: The cream comes in an opaque plastic tube with matte golden color screw open cap. The tube comes housed inside a similar color themed (white and golden) cardboard box. Packaging is easy to carry around. Smell: It has mild and pleasant smell. Texture and consistency: White color cream has light and smooth texture with thick consistency. In spite of being thick, this cream is easily bendable and non-sticky. I applied this cream in the morning after washing my face. A coin sized amount was enough to cover my full face. The cream blended into my skin nicely and settled down to a matte, supple finish. It did not make my face oily over time, rather it gave a soft matte look which stayed all day. The cream has salicylic acid which helps reduce oiliness and clear out pimples. I noticed that this cream dried out few budding pimples on my face, thanks to salicylic acid. The cream helped to fade out minor imperfection and light dark spots. But it did not hide all the blemishes completely. This cream gave a subtle glow to my face without making it oily which I really liked. But the downside is in winter this cream left a prominent white cast on my face and emphasized dry patches.
Gel-like texture that gets easily absorbed into your skin

Aloe vera is one of a kind ingredient that has been used from ancient age for curing skin and hair issues. Aloe vera gel is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera is that wonderful ingredient that can heal almost every skin problems. It soothes sun barn, irritation and skin itching. As soon as the brand Patanjali launched their Pure Aloe Vera gel, I bought it to try out. So, Here’s my take on the product Packaging: the aloe vera gel comes in a transparent plastic tube with a green flip-top cap. The cap shuts on nicely and is spill-proof. The information related to the product is mention on the tube itself. Smell: It smells pathetic. The product claims to be 90% aloe vera gel, but to my wonder, as soon as I sniffed at the product, I got a strong, alcoholic synthetic smell. I literally got a headache. Texture and consistency: The green color gel has moderate texture and consistency. If you have aloe vera plant, then you would know that pure aloe vera gel or extract doesn’t have any color, it is basically a transparent gel. So, that means, this aloe vera gel has added color too. I generally apply this gel on clean face after returning home from the sun. A coin-sized amount is enough to cover the full face. The gel glides on smoothly on my skin. I use it as a face pack, not a moisturizer. It instantly cools down my skin and soothes irritation. I leave the gel for good 10 mins and then wash off with plain water. The gel doesn’t get absorbed completely and rinses off easily from the face. It leaves my cool and hydrated. But it doesn’t provide moisturization and nourishment to my skin. It doesn’t improve my skin texture, marks or reduce skin issues like acne, breakouts, etc. The only thing it gives is the cooling effect and mild hydration that’s all. If you are sensitive toward strong fragrance then this product is definitely a big no for you.

I’m a big fan of Natural and Ayurvedic Products. I always try to use more natural products for my skin and hair. I bought Roop Mantra as it is an Ayurvedic cream and I heard really good review about it. I gifted this cream to my MIL as she badly needed something to apply on daily basis. After she used this cream for 20 days, the result was visible and prominent. She loves this cream so so much that she doesn’t want to use any other face cream. Packaging: Roop Mantra Ayurvedic Medicinal Face Cream comes in a white opaque plastic tube with screw open cap. The tube is further housed inside a similar color themed cardboard box. Both the tube and cardboard box carry the information related to the cream. Color and Smell: Baby pink color cream has a very mild Ayurvedic fragrance which doesn’t irritate your nose. Texture and consistency: The texture of this cream is light and creamy. It has whipped cream kind of consistency which may feel thick to some people. But as soon as you apply the cream over face , it gets absorbed very quickly and easily into the skin without leaving any greasiness of the face. My MIL has been using this cream for 6-7 months now and she is very happy with the product. According to her, this cream feels very light on the face and also gives a soft matte finish. It makes the skin soft, supple and healthy. This cream does improve the texture of my MIL’s skin and also reduces the appearance of open pores and winkles. She had hyperpigmentation and dark spots, this cream lightens the pigmentation to a great extent. 70% of her pigmentation has gone already. Roop Mantra Ayurvedic Medicinal Face Cream comes with the benefits of 12 unique and natural ingredients which work wonder on your skin. Highly recommended.

Olay has been my favorite when it comes to night cream. I have been using Olay Night cream from the last couple of years. So, after getting a wonderful result from it I have decided to try their day cream as well. So, bought this cream last month. I have started using this cream with a positive mindset. Packaging: It comes in a small tub with translucent base. It is further housed inside a cardboard box which carries all information related to the cream. I personally like bottle or tube packaging. Because of the jar packaging, it may feel a bit messy and unhygienic. Smell: The cream has a very mild and pleasant smell. Texture and consistency: White colored cream has a very soft silky texture with a creamy consistency. It feels light on the skin. It doesn’t feel greasy and gets absorbed into the skin easily I generally apply this cream as moisture before putting my base makeup on. It has SPF 24 which offers complete sun protection. Hence you don’t need to apply any sunscreen before. It contains a triple nutrients system- Vitamins B3, Pro B5 & E help in lightening the dark spots, hydrate and brightening the skin complexion by making it more even toned. I have combination skin and this cream works pretty well on me. It never feels greasy or oily over time and gets absorbed quickly. It makes my skin soft, supple and radiant within 10-12 days of usage. Now, my skin imparts a healthy glow which I love. I don’t have that much of dark spots, so can’t comment on its dark spot reduction claim. But, yes this cream does make my skin more bight and even toned. I had light pigmentation around the mouth and nose area. I really like how it lightens the spots and reduces the dullness of skin. The cream doesn’t even break out my sensitive prone skin. Definitely, recommend this cream.

Himalaya is a very well-known brand when it comes to personal care. Today I am going to share my review on their saffron fairness cream. Does the cream stand up to its claims? Let’s see! Packaging: the cream comes in a plastic tube packaging which is further inside a cardboard box. The tube and the box contain all the detail related to the product. Overall packaging is nice and travel-friendly. Smell: The cream has a very strong saffron smell which seems like fake and plastic-y. Texture and consistency: According to the brand, the cream is lightweight and non-greasy on the skin. But in reality, it is not. The cream has thick consistency which takes much effort and time to get absorbed into the skin. It doesn’t feel moisturizing or doesn’t make your skin greasy either. Himalaya Herbals Natural Glow Fairness Cream is enriched with Vitamin A, D and K, saffron extract and different essential enzyme that reduce the appearances of dark spots and making the skin more even-toned, bright and blemish free. As having saffron as key ingredients, this cream promises to enhance complexion and lighten skin tone. I have used this cream for 10 days to check its efficacy. I have combination skin. This cream needed a good rub to get completely absorbed. It felt very heavy on my skin. It didn’t leave any white cast but made my face look matte. I enjoyed this matte finish as my skin is getting oily over time. But I could imagine that someone with dry skin ever use this cream and ended up having stretchy and patchy skin. Another drawback is that it doesn’t contains any SPF for sun protection. Hence you need to apply a separate sunscreen over it. I would recommend this cream to oily skin beauties only.

No matter how many fancy hair oils I used, I always came back to Parachute Coconut Hair Oil at the end. Hair oil means Parachute, this oil is like a monthly staple for everyone’s house. I grew up applying this hair oil only as it is simple and pure coconut oil. There are no other ingredients go in making this hair oil. Hence it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of coconut and the oil gets solidified during the winter. I still remember those days when my mom used to give to hot oil Champi (massage) with is hair oil. Nevertheless everyone in my home use this oil.
The packaging is very simple and study. It comes in a blue plastic bottle with a flip top cap. The packaging is spill proof as well. It has moderate consistency. Over the years I haven’t noticed any changes in the texture and consistency of this hair oil. But one thing is that it becomes solid during the cold months and that makes the application a bit messy. It smells just coconut, sweet and fresh. Parachute 100% coconut Hair oil has been a constant with me since ages. I like to apply this hair oil once or twice a week. I take a generous amount of this oil into a steel bowl, add a few fenugreek seeds to it and boil. Then I leave it for some time to cool down.
I applied the hot oil all over my scalp and hair, use my fingertips to massage and let the oil penetrate into. After that, I wash it off with shampoo. It needs 3-4 washes to remove the oil completely from hair. This makes my hair so soft, bouncy and shiny post use. This oil works well on my dandruff for its anti-fungal properties. It reduces split ends and also gives strength to the hair with consistent use. Not just that, I also rub this oil onto rashes and bumps as it is pure coconut oil with antibacterial properties.

I am someone who is very much fond of skincare. I have combination skin and I love to use Beauty products on my skin. One day I saw an advertisement for Citra Fairness Cream with Korean pink pearl in the newspaper. Instantly in caught my fancy as it was Korean and pink pearl there in the ad. I was eager to try the cream hence bought. I have been using this cream for over 10 days now and now I am going to share my thought on this. The packaging is really travel-friendly as it comes in a white opaque plastic tube with a pump dispenser. Pump dispenser makes it easy to ooze out the cream and let us control the amount as well.
The smell is also very nice and floral. It doesn’t harm your nose. The texture is really soft and smooth. It has a moderate consistency, neither thick nor thin. For the smooth texture, the cream blends seamlessly into the skin within a minute or so. I have been using this cream in day time only. Two pumps are enough to cover my full face. It has a light texture which blends into my skin very well and instantly brightens up the complexion. The cream is white in color and has fine shiny to it. It doesn’t leave any white cast on my face.
It improves my skin texture and makes my skin softer, smoother and brighter. This cream adds an instant luminous glow which I like. The only con is that my face is getting oily over time. I don’t have any dark spot and hyper pigmentation on my face, that’s why I couldn’t say anything about its spot reduction claim. But overall, this cream has been a good my for me. I would recommend this cream to someone who is looking for a good day cream to try out.

I have premature hair greying and hence have color treated hair. So my hair is dry, rough and dull if not treated right. During my pregnancy, I suffered from tremendous hair fall which led me to believe that I will soon be bald. Therefore, I started looking for products that could stop my hair fall. Then my mom recommended me Indulekha Hair Oil as she has been using it for years and is satisfied with the result.
Packaging: Packaging is very user-friendly. It comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a deep root comb cap which ensures easy and hassle free application. Smell: The oil has a very strong Ayurvedic Smell. Consistency: Brown colored hair oil has a very thick and sticky consistency. It feels a bit heavy when applied as it made of all natural ingredients processed in a traditional form. I read many good reviews about this hair oil on the Internet before. So, I decided to give it a try when my mom suggested me.
I like the application as I don’t need to use my hand, the deep root comb cap makes it easy for me. I apply this oil 3 days a week (as instructed), 1 hour before washing hair. As the oil has a sticky consistency, it takes 2-3 washes to clean the hair. I have been using it for 4 months now and have already seen the visible difference in my hair. It reduces my hair fall to a great extent. Now, my hair fall is very nominal like 4-5 strands per day. My hair texture is gradually improving. It becomes softer, smoother and frizz free. My hair looks thicker and voluminous than before. This oil also helps reduce my dandruff. But haven’t seen any changes on my hair greying. I think it needs consistent use to show up the results. Dislike: This oil is expensive with respect to hair oil.

Minimizes hair fall
Helps detangle hair

I have been struggling with premature hair greying since I was at 3rd standard. It broke my mom’s heart. She tried a number of home remedies, made Ayurvedic oils her own and used several hair products on me to cure it. But nothing was changed. Then I decided to color my hair and that leaded to dry, damaged rough if not treated right. Like any other woman I faced severe postpartum hair fall. During and post pregnancy my hair became so thin and dry, it looked just a rope. Then one of my friend suggested me Patanjali Kesh Kanti hair oil.
I was eager to try out it as I have been using many skin care products of Patanjali for years and quite happy with the outcomes. Hence I bought one bottle and started using it and as soon as it finished off I got 2 bottles. Ever since then this is the hair oil I have been sticking to. Packaging: Packaging is very user-friendly. It comes in a handy plastic bottle with a cap and cardboard box. Smell: The oil has a very strong Ayurvedic Smell. Consistency: This hair oil has very thick and sticky consistency. It feels a bit heavy when applied as it made of all natural ingredients and processed oils like coconut oil, sunflower oil and wheat germ oil. I am not an oil person, I usually oiling my hair before shampooing. I massage this oil all over my scalp and hair thoroughly with my fingertips and leave it for like 1hour to 1 and half an hour. It needs 3 washes to rinse off the oil completely. It leaves my hair soft and shiny post use. This oil does reduces my hair fall to a great extent.
I was amazed to see new baby hair grow. This oil not only helps in lower the hair falls but it supports new hair growth. This oil also helps reducing my dandruff. But haven’t seen any changes on my hair greying. I think it needs a consistence use to show up the results. Patanjali is a renowned and widely used Indian brand which is known for their affordable pricing tags and promising products. Highly recommend Patanjali Kesh Kanti Hair Oil to all. Dislike: Strong smell and Sticky consistency.
