Treatments (Eye) - Jurlique - Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream

2.0

Aug/14/2012

This eye cream actually dried up my already dehydrated undereye area! Initially, when I applied it, the skin felt soft and moist. However, within half an hour, it became so dry, the skin started feeling tight and stretched and the fine lines became even more pronounced. I thought that my skin just needed more moisture and I put on some more cream but again the same thing happened. I used it daily …Read more

This is in no way an overnight miracle product...but it does work slow miracles on acne.

My skin was behaving so bad, breaking out all over for no reason so during my trip to Singapore, I picked this up from Sephora. I balked at the price but then, the SA said this would really help my skin. I trusted her and am glad I bought this. Slowly but surely, it dried up all my pimples and …

Moisturizers - CLARINS - Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream

5.0

Aug/14/2012

I got a sample of this when I bought some Clarins stuff. I was sceptical about trying this out coz the Multi Active Jour makes my face look like a shiny disco ball. But then its a night cream so who cares if the face is shiny.


And what a wonderful cream it has turned out to be...it's a white cream, not too thick, delicately fragranced (love the smell), and simply melts into …

Conditioner - The Body Shop - Rainforest Moisture Conditioner

TBS Honey conditioner used to be my fave. And then it got discontinued. The SA said that this was a better version of that conditioner coz it didn't have parabens and sulfates.

After using it, I feel that it doesn't have any great conditioning properties either! The day I use this, my hair feels nice but the very next day, they start feeling greasy and lanky.

The …

What a wonderful product!!! I got this in a GWP and didn't try it for quite some time as I thought it is for more mature, dry skin. Then curiosity got better of me and I tried it out.

It is a very thick white cream but is not greasy at all. It gets absorbed so quickly into the skin and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. A little bit is enough for the entire face. It seemed to …

Treatments (Eye) - Neutrogena - Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream

3.0

An absolutely average product! Makes tall claims but doesn't live up to them.

The texture is quite nice, non greasy and easily absorbed. It does moisturise the under eye skin but despite being a "Deep Wrinkle eye cream" it doesn't have any effect on fine lines! Neither have I noticed any improvement in my dark circles or puffiness.


I like the fact …

Shampoo - The Body Shop - Rainforest Moisture Shampoo

Aug/13/2012

This is quite an average shampoo. For the price, I expected something much better.


The name says Rainforest Moisture but it has done nothing for my dry hair. It is just not moisturising, perhaps salicylic acid has something to do with that coz isn't that supposed to be drying? Also the shampoo doesn't lather well and I need really lots to get my hair clean (and I …

Aug/13/2012

I don't know what is so Miraculous about this oil. The SA convinced me to buy this saying it was comparable to argan oil and I bought it without reading the ingredients list.


It's just a blend of almond, coconut and sesame oil with jasmine fragrance. And here, in India, I can buy all three oils (get pure oil extracted right in front of my eyes from the finest quality …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Liquid Facial Cleansing Formula

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2012

This is a wonderful cleanser, really well suited to my combination skin coz it cleans my skin without drying it out. Doest leave a greasy film on my face either. In fact, my face feels quite normal after washing with this, the T zone is not oily and the cheeks aren't dry.

It has a thick gel texture which lathers quite well and removes light make up quite well …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2012

Possibly the worst cleanser I have ever used! I was looking for a cleanser to help me with my randon acne break outs and thought this would be good. It aggravated my acne and I had breakouts all over my face! It also dried up my skin so bad and left it feeling tight and stretched out. I only used this for about 10 days and have an almost full bottle left.
