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.

I envy women with dry skin type. Having said that, all hope is not lost. The solution is Garnier Fair Miracle 2 in 1 Cream, which I’m going to review for all you lovely ladies.

The Review:

I cannot step outside the house, without powdering my face, or else I’ll look like a grease ball.
So the first time, after applying Garnier Fair Miracle 2 in 1 Cream, I reached out for a compact.
Just a glance in the mirror told me, I didnt need any powder, as my face looked super matte.
Garnier Fair Miracle 2 in 1 Cream contains talc. Its a 2 in 1 cream which has the benefit of a cream and powder or talc.
The cream is thick in consistency and white in color. You need to blend it quickly, as it dries faster. Also upon application, it leaves a white cast on your face which disappears after 15 mins.
The packaging is nothing fancy and it comes with a screw cap. Garnier Fair Miracle 2 in 1 Cream kept my face matte, oil and dirt free for almost 5 hours.
Although i did notice it getting a bit messy on my upper lip, where there were traces of sweat.
The cream has a mild fragrance. It didnt cause any breakouts or irritation on my skin. Basically, Garnier Fair Miracle 2 in 1 Cream is a better version of fair & lovely.

The Review:

When I first applied L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA+++ Sunscreen Gel on my face, it felt so light and so non-greasy unlike other heavy creams.
Also noticed, It didn’t have any fragrance.
Since, it was a gel, I was expecting it to be transparent.
But to my surprise, it was a white colored perfect consistency and blends effortlessly.
The packaging is very compact and travel friendly.
Cap shuts tight, preventing any leakage.

If you have combination skin like me, or even an oilier one, you’ll fall in love with the L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA+++ Sunscreen Gel.
It’s the perfect sun protection we’ve all been waiting for.
Doesn’t cause the face to sweat unlike other sunscreens.
And is my favorite for short duration sun protection.
Even though its claims to have 12 hour sun protection, I noticed my face getting tanned after prolonged exposure to the sun.
However, I can safely say from experience, that it didn’t cause any tanning for about an hour.
For longer durations, I prefer Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
L’oreal also has an SPF 50 variant in the same range.
So you can go for that one, if you’re looking for a higher protection.
Best part about the L’oreal Sunscreen is that it blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
It doesn’t only protect against tanning, but also prevents other signs of sun damage like aging, free radicals, etc.
Now, My skin is extremely prone to clogging pores & breakouts, with any cream that I put on my face.
But thankfully with L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Gel, I didn’t experience any such things.
There are very less beauty products that actually work for me, so this one definitely gets a thumps up from me.

Cons:

The 12 hours protection claim is a bit too overrated.

Overall Verdict: L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA+++ Sunscreen Gel is your HG sunscreen, if you’re going to be out in the sun for a shorter period of time. If you suffer from oily or combination skin type, its a must for you.

Todays review is about Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser.

What Garnier Claims:
Its special formula blends a moisturizer with selected ingredients:
Formula with Mexoryl SX , a revolutionary patented molecule, to give protection from sun’s UV rays.
Vitamin E to help protect against free radicals and help delay the signs of ageing.
Glycerol and extracts of coriander to retain the skin’s moisture and prevent it from drying while nourishing.

Ingredients

Key Ingredients – Mexoryl SX,Vitamin E, Glycerol and extracts of coriander.

My skin type – combination.

Price – Rs. 130

Quantity – 50 ml

Packaging

Packaging: comes in a upside down white bottle with orange screw cap. the opening is a nozzle.

What Mexoryl SX does:
Mexoryl SX ia a water soluble sunscreen which filters UVA rays.

Consistency – its a light orange runny lotion.

Consistency

My Experience:
I got this one to use as a body sunscreen.
but had to try on my face as well for a complete review.
Upon application, my face became very greasyand it took some time to get absorbed into the skin.
Even after being absorbed my skin felt quite greasy.
the lotion is runny in consistency and the fragrance is quite ok.
this one will not bother sensitive noses.
I have dry skin on by body.
after application on my arms, it didnt feel greasy at all and got absorbed within minutes.
Now cuming to the sun protection factor, Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser does not have any SPF mentioned.
However the newer versions of this moisturiser claims to have SPF 15.
Normally i avoid using any sunscreen without SPF as i don’t trust them.
This one i used just to test the effectiveness.
I can say I safely stayed in the sun for about 15 mins in the sun with this moisturiser on.
And after that my skin started tanning.
So, to sum up I would say this would be an ideal sunscreen to be worn indoors or if you going to be in the sun for a short duration and definately for those with dry skin, as its an excellent moisturiser.
Also since this moisturiser contains water soluble sunscreen, it wont work, if you sweat a lot or while swimming.

IMG_20130214_140511

Pros:
Suitable for dry skin
Provides short term sun protection.
Moisturiser + Suncreen 2-in-1
Pea sized quantity is enough for one application on face, so this bottle is goin to last for a long time.

Cons:
makes skin greasy apon application.
not suitable for oily & combination skin
No spf mentioned – not for reliable & long sun protection
Takes time to get absorbed
No complete ingredients list mentioned

Will I Purchase it again – Definately not, I’ll try other suncreens. Also as of now I’m very happy with my Garnier BB Cream.

Would I Recommend – Yes to dry skinned people and also to those who dont stay in the sun for long.

Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating – 1.5 out of 5.
