Current Skin Care Favorites

I have shared with you  My Makeup Favorites. Today I am going to share my skin care favorites with you. I have a super-dry skin which turns dull and dry if ignored even for a day just like a child who requires full attention, so I am keeping it happy with the following nowadays.


Facial Care

1) Neutrogena Fine Fairness TonerTransferred it to the FabIndia Rose Facial water spray bottle and use it twice daily. It is moderately moisturizing to my dry skin for day time but can’t afford skip to my regular moisturizer at night. It feels slightly sticky during day, so I wipe off the excess with wet cotton (5 min post application) and follow with sunscreen. It has given my skin slight firming and it does appear smoother.

2) Ponds Night Miracle anti- ageing night cream My first anti-ageing product, an affordable night cream which comes in an attractive packaging with a velvety soft texture. The cream just blends in to the skin without leaving any residue. I use a generous amount so as to sufficiently moisturize my dry skin. Skin feels silky soft and smooth but couldn’t comment on its claims of reduction in Fine lines & wrinkles

3) Jergen’s Shea Butter Body Lotion – This is my favorites from all of the Jergens body lotions I have tried( Age Defying, Skin Firming and Cherry-Almond) and tops the list with its lovely warm scent buttery vanilla scent and rich moisturizing texture which just sinks into the skin with little massage. Keep skin nourished and moisturized for long in dry winters and never feels oily or sticky but definitely not suitable for upcoming summers.

4) L’Occitane Divine Under Eye Cream (Sample) – I had these samples lying with me for almost an year. Used only hair care samples which I am still drooling over and they are on my wish list like anything. This is a light weight cream but heavily moistursing to the under eye area. Blends quickly into the skin with little massage and gives a healthy appearance to under eye area. The sample lasted me almost 10 days, which I feel isn’t enough to comment on its effectiveness on wrinkles & dark circles but totally loved the way it soaks into the skin without leaving any residue, which makes it suitable for day time also.


With the soaring temperatures, it’s time to go to basics and pamper myself with some easy kitchen Recipes. Home made packs are a must for me along with regular skin care routines and here are my favorites for face and hair

      Hey Melissaa.. Me ordered Olay Moisturising Cream.. which Olay lotion are u using..?
      I have used Lotus Butranite but found it a bit slippery due to its residual oily layer.. 🙁
      U no liking Vaseline Cocoa… oohhh.. but time to say bye bye to such warm fragrances and welcome fresh aqua scents .. 🙂 🙂
      Aroma Magic didnt worked much for me too…I have used Oriflame Multi-benefits Under eye cream.. AT first I liked it much but now it has stopped working for me.. 🙁 🙁 Thinking of investing in Forest Essentials or L’Occitane under eye cream now… 😛
      Fullers earth is a life saver for Oily skin.. never tried Oats in Face pack.. will give it a shot.. 🙂 🙂

    Poo suggest a gud under eye cream na…i dont hav very dark circles but still wld love to get them there any cream thts that effective?

    • poonamMarch 15, 2013 at 4:36 PM - Reply

      Himalaya under-eye cream, Ponds Flawless White Under Eye Cream, Ponds gold radiance Youth Reviving Under eye cream give a healthy and moisturised under eye area but not much effective on dark circles…
      If we move on the higher side
      Fade out anti Shadow Brightening under eye cream has some positive feedback but I think the home recipes like almond Oil and healthy lifestyle are the key to Keep dark circles at bay..
      But we still need sometyhing to spurlge on.. hihiihi..
      Thinking of trying FE or L’Occitane luxury eye creams.. 😉 😉

    Even I want to try some nice under eye cream that’s not too expensive and fits into my college budget. Suggestions please .. Currently using Aroma Magic.. But no results.

    • poonamMarch 16, 2013 at 3:05 PM - Reply

      I would suggest to try Oriflame Multi Benefits (Rs.300 approx. under offer), Ponds gold radiance Youth Reviving Under eye cream (Rs 600 approx), Fade out anti Shadow Brightening under eye cream (Rs629).. All of these are slightly better than Himalaya & AromaMagic.. I may go for Ponds, Fade Out Or Forest Essential(Rs800) next.. 🙂 🙂
      Hey Nandini.. great to see you around .. Which course are you in.. if you wanna tell.. 😛
