O3+ Hydrating & Soothing Face Wash Review

I am going to give review of o3+ hydrating & soothing face wash review.  I have combination skin and in winters it becomes dry. So I have to be very cautious and very particular about my skin care regimen. This O3+ Face Wash has a very soothing and moisturising effect on the skin to make it feel comfortable after wash. The purifying formula brightens complexion and evens out skin tone to make your skin look flawless and clear. Ideal for those with normal to dry skin, this cleanser washes in hydration so your skin doesn’t feel dry  after wash.

PRICE : 225 INR for 50gm

This face wash comes in a white tube with a white flip top cap. The packaging is a little disappointing as you don’t know how much of product is left! The cap has a small nozzle through which the product is squeezed out.

face wash is gel based milky white fluid and has a runny consistency. The face wash requires only a small amount of face wash for a single cleansing. Also,The face wash has a very pleasant mild fragrance as that of glycerin and aloe vera. It eventually fades away after few minutes of rinsing.

The reason I love this face wash is because I can feel my skin is fresh and clean and I don’t feel my skin tightening as it does whenever I use face wash.

REASON TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT : 

  • Travel friendly
  • Hydrating and soothing
  • Suitable for normal to dry skin
  • creamy texture
  • pleasant smell
  • Gently cleanses the skin

REASON  NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT :

  • runny texture
  • not suitable for oily skin

Overall , o3+ hydrating and soothing face wash good for normal to dry skin.

Colorbar BB Cream

Hi Everyone,

I am going to give review of colorbar BB Cream. Perfect match technology which makes the BB cream adapt to your skin tone and blend perfectly. It provides sheer coverage with radiant glow, Paraben free, nourishing, protecting & moisturising skin, sun protection.

img_7235

Price : 550 INR 

MY EXPERIENCE AND PRODUCT DESCRIPTION :

This cream comes in a sleek tan plastic tube with a silver screw cap. The consistency of the cream is quite thin. I have observed that it is kind of soaked up very quickly by cleaned skin. So I need to be real quick to blend it before it gets dried and patchy. According to my experience the cream glides smoothly on moisturised skin or on primer rather than dry and just cleaned skin.

The BB Cream texture is somewhere in between a mousse or a whipped foundation and a thick full coverage liquid foundation. Though the consistency is really good, it does tend to apply patchily, especially on dry skin. I have combination skin and I definitely cannot use this alone. I always moisturise before using this. Oily skinned people might find this would work pretty well for them.

 

REASON TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT  :

  • Travel Friendly.
  • Contains SPF 20.
  •  Feels very light on the face.
  • Good staying power.
  • Adds a soft glow to the skin.
  • Contains SPF 20.
  • No parabens.
  • Gives a very natural look.

REASON  NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT  :

  • Dry skinned ladies need to apply a moisturiser beneath it.
  •  No ingredients list.
  • Strong  fragrance.

MotherDaughterBlog Rating : 4 Out of 5

Overall,  BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 and light formula. It blends easily without leaving a white cast. Coverage is light and one can increase it by adding powder on top of it. If you are looking for more coverage this product might disappoint you.

Lotus Herbals YouthRx Youth Activating Serum + Creme Review

Hi All,

img_7099

Today I am reviewing one of my favourite products from the Lotus Herbals YouthRx Range, the Serum + Creme. Serum is an emerging and effective skincare product. It gets absorbed easily and is lightweight in nature which delivers maximum benefits to the skin.  Since couple of months i am using this product.

Price : 569 INR  Online 

The serum comes in a gold glass bottle with purple metallic pump  dispenser and clear plastic cap. The packing looks very luxurious and the bottle is very convenient to use at the same time.

It contains the highest concentration of the revolutionary ‘Gineplex Youth Compound’ which gives it 10 times the anti-ageing power of a day creme.

It’s a 2-in-1 formula of Serum + Creme –
  • Serum penetrates the skin quickly and delivers 10X* more ‘GINEPLEX YOUTH COMPOUND’ to the dermal layer, boosting collagen production.
  • Creme nourishes, hydrates and restores skin moisture.

the texture of this serum is very light as compared to other serums. It is actually a serum + creme. But it is full liquid in nature. As soon as the serum is spread on your face it blends in very easily. And i was amazed to see it is quite moisturising  just as normal creme.

MY EXPERIENCE : 

The changing weather is definitely taking effect on my skin. It is drier than ever and the oily areas of my skin have somehow transformed into dry patches. My skin has an ongoing issue with redness. And when you come across a product like this from a skincare brand, you could always give it a try and that’s exactly what I did. Read further to know how this youthrx youth activating serum worked for me.

Serum + Creme acts like a light moisturiser that helps maintain skin’s pH level. I take 2 pumps of this serum and massage it nicely on my cleansed face & neck. It spreads smoothly and sinks completely into the skin with a little massage, leaving my skin smooth and nourished. It provides adequate hydration to skin and no need of applying moisturiser after using it. For dry skin need some good moisturising creme. After using this product for more than a month I have seen a noticeable improvement in my skin’s texture. These days my skin feels more firm, smooth and hydrated.

REASON TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT : 

  • Travel Friendly Packing.
  • Gel like Consistency.
  • Easy to Blend.
  • Perfect Hydrating.
  • For all Skin Types.
  • Reduce Dark Spots.
  • Easy Available.
  • Helped to reduce redness on my skin.

REASON NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT : 

  • Bit pricey for some.
  • No SPF.

MomDaughterBlog Rating :  4.5 Out of 5

If you are looking for a decent skin serum that will moisturise your skin well. Best for Combination and oily skin.
