Fabindia Skin Hydrating Cream for Oily Skin: Best everyday cream for Oily/combination skin! Review, Price and Online

Hey everyone!
Fabindia Skin Hydrating Cream for Oily Skin: Review
I came across this product on Samyukta's Youtube Channel in her favorites product.
I have a combination skin and was on a lookout for a light moisturizer which won't break me out. Lets see if this product fulfills what it claims.

What Fabindia claims: An extremely light, whipped cream loaded with age controlling cellular extracts and Vitamin E. It nourishes the skin and protects it against moisture loss.

Cost: INR 180


Fabindia Skin Hydrating Cream for Oily Skin

My Review:

Packaging: It comes in a container which fits well. It is quite unhygenic since I have to dip my fingers to get the product out but that's where the cons ends.

Texture:It is a very light weight cream and absorbs in few seconds. It has a light sweet and refreshing smell.

Working:It absorbs onto the skin and leave it pretty smooth.
It didn't break me out or give any oiliness to me. ( Read update below)
Fabindia Skin Hydrating Cream for Oily Skin: Ingredients
Overall, a wonderful everyday moisturizer for combination skin.

Pros:
  • Light weight
  • Affordable
  • Easily available online and in stores
Cons:
  • Packaging
Conclusion: A must have daily wear cream for oily/combination skin and that too at an affordable price. This is by far my favorite daily wear cream!

Rating:4.8/5

Update : I have stopped using this cream, as I discovered that this was causing my acne breakout. The ingredient Isopropyl Palmitate was the cause of this as it a highly comedogenic product. If you have sensitive acne prone skin, I do not recommend this. If you have normal to oily skin which never break out, them you might try this but at your own risk. I do not recommend this product.

Maybelline BB Cream in shade 01 Nude: Review and Swatch

Today I am reviewing a BB cream from Maybelline in the shade Nude. I got this as a contest win. Lets start with the review.


Maybelline BB Cream in shade 01 Nude: Review and Swatch


What Maybelline Claims:


CLEAR GLOW BB CREAM

8-in-1 benefits in 1 cream.

  • Maybelline Clear Glow BB Cream is designed to provide 8 beauty benefits, improving the quality of your skin. It has a light, fresh feel on the face and is suitable for all skin types.
  • Here’s why you’ll love it:
  • • 8-in-1 benefit BB Cream is easy to use and works well on all skin types
  • • Freshens, brightens and smoothens skin
  • • Evens skin-tone and conceals imperfections for a flawless look
  • • Mattifies complexion
  • • Provides UV protection with SPF 21/PA+++
Maybelline BB Cream in shade 01 Nude: Review and Swatch

My Review: The packaging is cute and convenient as all Maybelline products.The color I got is in shade Nude. The tube has a narrow nozzle for easy use. The consistency of this is quite liquidy but I found it a task to blend it properly. It required a lot of tugging which really put me off! I guess this would apply well on a moisturized face but then it defeats the purpose of an all-in-one cream. But that is its only limitation.

The color Nude is perfect for wheatish skin like mine and does have yellow undertones. It does give you a matte effect on application and brightens skin. I absolutely loved how it looked on my skin after a long tiring travel. I just got back from that tiring travel and went to watch a movies immediately after that. This cream covered my tired face and gave me a fresh look. It did feel light on my skin. I did notice white cast but nothing over the top.



Maybelline BB Cream in shade 01 Nude: Swatch

All in all a wonderful BB cream from Maybelline. I recommend this to all those who don't have time for all the steps in makeup. 

I'll purchase the BB stick next time round which I have heard rave reviews about.

Pros:
  • Shade suits me perfectly
  • Has SPF 21/PA+++
  • Gives Matte effect
  • Brighten and freshens skin
  • Feels light on the skin

Cons:
  • Blending is a task
  • Gives a white cast
My Rating: 4/5

Conclusion: A perfect BB cream from Maybelline which does what it claim. A shortcut to make-up for the busy girl on the go!

My Dad, My Hero

I am not very close to my dad- in terms of sharing my secrets and my thoughts but I admire him none the less. He is first and foremost a self – made man. He wanted to study after his graduation but didn't because he was the elder brother and had his family and siblings to support.

Also, he is a very blunt and an honest man. I know sometimes it can be too much to deal with but I would rather be hurt by the truth than be happy with false praise.

He thought me those little but essential things in life like ironing my clothes, gutting a fish, importance of having a privileged life, standing up for myself , being different and being unapologetic about it.

Though we argue a lot with each other and sometimes not on the same page, he thinks the best for me and wants to be the best. In terms of my career, he has always encouraged me to do well in academics and be the best in whatever I do.

He has seen very bad days and thinks a hundred times before spending on something. He is essentially a simple person and the circumstances of his past still ring a bell in his heart.

I remember it was during the period of my 10th exams and I used to be up all night studying. Dad was the one who used to wake up in the middle of night and bring me a hot cup of tea!
There many thing I admire and love about him which make him my hero!

Also, there is a quote from this man (Don’t know his name) and he said that a woman is not successful because she is a woman, she is successful because she is well read, smart and intelligent. That line truly touched my heart.

Maybelline Colossal Voloume Mascara (Water Resistant) : Review and EOTD

Hey Girls!
Am back with another review.

This time it's Maybelline. Yesterday I went through my makeup stash and saw that I have atleast 1 product from their range. Be it the lipbalm, lipstick, kajal, gel liner, compact, eye shadow, color tattoo, foundation, nail paints, I have got everything!!

I recently finished my Favorite Hypercurl Mascara from Maybelline (Btw, it is the best mascara for curl and volume) and went to buy another one. But it was not in stock there, so I reluctantly decided to try something new. Enter Colossal Mascara. Read further to know my thoughts on it!
