Fab India Facial Rose Water Review

Rose Water or mostly known as “Gulab Jal” is most commonly used facial toner when it comes to skin care. Rose water offers many skin benefits. It works very well as toner for all skin types. It soothes, freshen up tired and dull looking skin. It also helps in fighting acne, skin infection. Today, I am going to share review of Rose Facial Water from Fab India. IMG_0488

Fab India Facial Rose Water claims

Our 100% plant based soothing water is collected during the steam distillation of flowers while extracting essential oils.

Ingredients: Distillate of natural rose petals (flowers).

Directions for use:  After washing your face and neck, spray the facial water onto a cotton swap and gently stroke in an upward direction.

My Experience with Fab India Facial Rose Water

I have been using Fab India Facial Rose Water for over a month now and I love it. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a spray pump on the top.  The pump is quite good and does not stick in between while using it. As bottle is transparent, you can easily see the quantity left in bottle. The Rose Water is transparent like water. It smells like fresh roses, although fragrance does not linger for long. It fades way in few minutes. I use it after washing my face every day in morning and night as toner. It soothes my skin instantly and make me feel fresh. Sometimes, when my face feels very dull and lifeless, I spray it on my face and it instantly freshens up my face.

As Fab India do not test on animals and 100% vegetarian brand. I do not have any doubt on the ingredients list. This is the best Rose Water I have used till now. Although there are many other options available in market right now like Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water, Forest Essentials Facial Toner Pure Rosewater but they are costly like more than 500 bucks. As I do not want to spend too much on my toner so I will definitely pick this one again.

If you are looking for a good Rose Water free from paraben, go for it.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Paraben Free
  • Nice Packing
  • Instantly freshens up dull skin
  • Good quantity
  • Nice Fragrance
  • Very Gentle on skin

Cons:

Availability might be an issue, although it is available online easily.

Aroma Magic Sunscreens Review

Hello Everyone, How are you all? Enjoying Winters!!! Foggy Mornings and evenings, Hot Chocolates and Blankets. We keep our skin well moisturized with tones of moisturizer, night creams, serums, lotions etc. What wait…aren’t we forgetting something… Sunscreen. If you think you don’t need a Sunscreen in Winters, well, you are wrong sweetie. You might not get tanned with winter sun-rays but in long run you can get pigmentation, dark spots, aging spots and who wants that. So Sunscreen is must have in all seasons. Yes, It is. Today I am going to review 2 sunscreens from Aroma Magic. Aroma Magic is one of the most renowned Indian brands for Skin care products. Aroma Magic is one of my favorite brands. I always keep adding one or two products from Aroma Magic in my shopping bag. IMG_20141219_103403

What Aroma Magic says about Products:

 Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion: Protects and mattifies. I am 100 % free of oxybenzone, parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. My all-mineral, ultra effective formula creates a physical barrier between you and the sun. I am non greasy, skin friendly and enriched with carrotseed, wheatgerm and jojoba oils. They provide natural sun safety, Vitamins B5, C, E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of helichrysum, calendula and roman chamomile essential oils heal scars and mattify your skin. The non-nano Zinc Oxide in me is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays. Green tea extracts promote elasticity and provide smart sun protection.

My Experience with Aroma Magic Sunscreens:

 I picked up these two last summers and using since then on and off. I quite like the Aroma Magic Cucumber one most. I am doing a comparison between both and you will see why? Packaging: I like packaging. Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen has a neon green tube with black print and Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion is yellow tube. I like neon and colored packaging rather than dull packaging. Texture: Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen Lotion has texture like a normal lotion or cream. It is not very heavy or creamy while Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion has texture like Fair and Lovely cream. I mean it has whitest cast like texture. Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen absorbs in skin completely, doesn’t leave any white film or cast. It can serve as good moisturizer in summers for combination skin on other hands for oily skin it can be little heavy. Dry skin beauties can surly top in on serum can skip moisturizer but in winter you will need moisturizer beneath it. On Other hand, Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion leaves a white cast after application. It is more like a physical sunscreen. It mattifies skin as it claims. Oily skin beauty might like it as it gives and matt finish to skin. But I don’t like using it on my face as it leave a white cast. I use it for my hands and feet. Both are 100 % free of oxybenzone, parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. Both have a medicinal smell which doesn’t bother me much and it fades away in sometime. Both has SPF of 30 and Aroma Magic Sun block also has PA+++ So as a sum up I love Aroma Magic Cucumber Sunscreen and will repurchase it for sure. I will skip Aroma Magic Sun block Lotion. If you have very sensitive skin or looking for a physical sunscreen you can give a try to Aroma Magic Sun block lotion.IMG_20141219_103633 IMG_20141219_103822IMG_20141219_103735 IMG_20141219_103435 IMG_20141219_103527 Pros:

My Experience with L’oreal YouthCode Luminize super serum:

This summer I was very busy in planning my sister’s wedding. We used to be out all day shopping and it was very hot out there. My skin care regime was totally messed up because of all hustle. I got tanned badly with many sun spots on my cheeks. I was searching for a good tan and pigmentation removal serum, cream etc. I write so many good reviews about L’oreal YouthCode Luminize super serum so I ordered it.

IMG_20141219_102955

Packging : L’oreal YouthCode Luminize super serum comes in a gray glass bottle with a pump cap. To get the product you need to rotate the cap and press the pump. I find packing very hygienic. Only cons is bottle is not transparent so you can’t see how much product is left.

 Price: 1450 Rs for 30 ml

Texture: L’oreal YouthCode Luminize super serum has pearly white texture. It has slightly citrus fragrance which fades away in sometime after application.

I have been using this serum not for almost 2 months. I apply it every day morning and evening after cleansing and toning my face. Two pumps are good to cover all my face and neck. As claimed this serum hydrates my skin instantly after application. I have combination skin which prone to dehydrates in colder months. It provides good hydration to my skin without making it greasy and oily. Every morning I wake up with hydrated skin after using this. It takes care of my dry cheeks. I did not get any zits or acne because of this.

With In a week, after using this I can certainly see my tan start getting to fad and skin start looking clearer. The sun spots also start to fade what were still visible.

After 1 month, pigmentation was faded to great extent although were not completely clear. Tan was completely gone and skin started to look more radiant, even-tone, bright and clear. I am very happy with the results.

The quantity of product is good. I am using it for almost 2 months and still quantity for almost 7 days is left in bottle. Yes, I opened the cap and checked it. 😉

I totally love this product.
