Review : L'Oreal Paris Hydra Total 5 Normal Gel Cream

Monday, March 17, 2014

Hi girls, moisturizing is a key for healthy skin. A good moisturizer can make your skin beautiful and glowing. But it can be difficult to select a moisturizer for combination or oily skin as it may break out or makes skin greasy.
Most of the time girls with oily skin skips moisturizer believing that they do not need it. but this is not true. Moisturizer for oily skin is essential. I have got oily skin and it gets more prone to breakout during summer season. Its really difficult to choose a moisturizer which not only keeps skin hydrated and controls shine. Today i have L'Oreal hydra total 5 normal gel cream in spotlight. lets see what i have to say about it.

Product Description :
It comes in a glass jar which looks elegant and holds a decent amount of product. But on the darker side, it is not so travel friendly. I prefer squeeze tubes while travelling. The product is secure with a extra lid cover inside jar cap.

My experience:
I am using this gel cream religiously for one month and I am happy that I found my new love. The texture is gel like, water based and light weight. It penetrates in skin instantly and does not leave any residue. The fragrance is very fresh and energetic. It reminds me of a smoothie made up of cucumbers and lemons. Fragrance lasts for a decent amount of time. It also contains UV filters which makes it an ideal day cream in summers. But I prefer to apply sunscreen separately. My skin looks more lively, toned and hydrated after each use. I love the fact that it makes my skin glowing after regular use. I can see that it hydrates the dry patches on my face and makes skin smoother and toned. It comes with a price tag of 700 rs. Which does not dig a hole in pocket. I must say, i will be using it through out summer season.

Over all , I am very pleased with this product. It does what it claims.

Price and Availability:
Available nationwide for Rs. 699

Yes, if you have combination to oily skin ,its a product worth trying I am sure that you would not regret.

I am planning to try few other products from L'Oreal hydra total 5 range, any recommendations ?
which moisturizer are you using currently , please give me feedback. I love reading your comments.

Review : Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Scrub

Saturday, March 15, 2014
Hi to all,
I have been a dedicated fan of St. Ives apricot scrub for years. This time, i decided to try something new so i picked up this one. I have been using this scrub for past one month. Lets see did it make me happy or not.

What it claims :
A complexion enhancing scrub with mild exfoliants that brings out your natural fairness and reveals glowing skin. Licorice and White Dammer help regulate melanin synthesis while Apricot granules gently scrub away dead skin cells, blackheads and deeply embedded impurities. The result is visibly brighter, soft and glowing skin.

Key Ingredients: 

Licorice, White Dammer, Apricot.

 My Experience:
It comes in a squeeze tube which makes it very easy to use and travel friendly. It has a strong floral fragrance which does not bothers me. I kind of like this scent which reminds me of a garden with thousands flowers. The consistency is thick and creamy. It gives a soft smoother feel to skin after each use. It consists apricot granules which are mild and gentle but exfoliates pretty well.I am using it twice a week for one month and it removes blackheads completely from my nose and chin. It also makes my skin texture better. If you have normal to dry skin then this product will work for you. As far as the whitening claim is concerned, it does nothing for it. Personally, i never believe on whitening claims of beauty products. But sadly, it did not brightens up my complexion like many whitening products do.

Over all , its an average product which exfoliates well  ,makes skin soft and supple,but does nothing for skin complexion.

My ratings :
3 out of 5

Price And Availability:
Bought for Rs. 545 from Bin Hashim Pharmacy, Karachi

Repurchase ?

I would rather buy my old favourite St. Ives apricot scrub, my skin loves it.
