Summer feels hotter than ever and my combination skin feels greasier than ever. I’m sure most of you Ladies are experiencing the same thing. Oily skin also makes me prone to acne and blemishes. Recently I have been trying the AuraVedic Anti Blemish Face Mask to see if it helps.
Everybody in the beauty community raves about Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, so I decided to try it. I know, I’m late to jump on this bandwagon now. Anyways, I picked up the shade 010 warm honey. This is the darkest shade in this range and yet it is not dark enough for olive skin tonnes. If you’re above NC 40, you may not find a shade match.
L’oreal Paris Skin Perfect Expert Skincare Range for Every Age
L’oreal Paris has launched a new Skincare Range for Every Age. There are three creams available in this collection for different age groups like 20+, 30+ and 40+. I was sent the entire range by their PR guys to try out. I’m pretty fascinated by the idea of having skin care specifically tailored for each age group. Cant wait to try them out. This is basically a first impressions kind of post. I will do a detailed review in another post.
With pure essential oils of rose & jasmine.This nourishing Ayurvedic face cream made with a blend of pure ingredients, described in the ancient Ashtanga Hrudayam Ayurveda text as the ideal treatment for smooth, soft and clear skin. The herbs are processed in pure coconut milk and sesame oil. Costus and Cardamom are known for their Varneekarana properties – the ability to enhance skin texture. Costus is especially known for its soothing effect on skin. These are blended with Aloe Vera which has antiseptic properties, prevents acne, blemishes, fine lines and acts as a protection against the sun. A 100% natural emulsifier derived from Olive Oil enables high skin absorption and is moisturising. The essential oils of rose and jasmine purify and nurture the skin. The ideal treatment for the face, to be used daily.
My skin feels tight after application of Kama Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream. It keeps my face matte for about an hour, after which it starts getting greasy. I have combination skin and most face creams get greasy on my face after some time, if I don’t set it with powder. The cream is white colored and has a thick consistency. It comes in a glass jar which doesn’t seem very travel friendly.
The cream needs to be massaged into the skin for some time to avoid the white cast. Even after that, I feel like this cream doesn’t get absorbed into the skin, but just sits on top. When I wash my face with water hours after application, the creams just comes off my face. Kama Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream has a strong herbal kind of smell which doesn’t bother me much. Its a good day cream, although don’t expect any moisturization.
Non-greasy and light for daytime.
Suitable for normal, oily & combination skin.
Not moisturizing enough for dry skin.
Doesn’t get absorbed quickly, needs to be massaged.
BG Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
Overall Verdict: If you have normal, combination or oily skin and are looking for a lightweight day cream, this will do the job but don’t expect any moisturizing.
