REVIEW: Za True White Day Cream from The House of Shiseido


Review of Za True White Day Cream from The House of Shiseido

The Indian market perhaps the Asian market is abuzz with loads of whitening products and honestly I give a shit about fairness or whitening products but when you get back to work and see PR samples sitting on your testing table (yup the pati knows to keep my PR boxes on my testing table only) you have no choice but to sample the wares. I generally give reviewing these "whitening" products a miss but I have honestly read so much about Za that my curiosity got the better of me...

So I read the product carton back to back and top to bottom and you will be surprised at what I discovered...

I realized that when brands talk about "Whitening" what they (most of them atleast) mean is even skin and de-pigmentation and removal of patchiness... That of course is absolutely acceptable to me, to you and I am sure to many of us... I mean I really don't think its possible to alter someone's skin color with a cream (not till now at least; no idea about the future) but yes who doesn't want an even and smooth skin... I do!

So I went ahead and tried the cream, I wore it for exactly a week and I was seeing a difference. I had been getting a little darkness around my nose and my lips, but after using the cream I could genuinely see a difference to those problem areas. Of course the darkness/pigmentation hasn't exactly disappeared but its lightened to a great extent and doesn't look that obvious anymore... I liked the cream for this...

Price of Za True White Day Cream

It costs INR 999/- for 40 gms

Texture wise, Za True White Day Cream is light and very fluffy and get absorbed almost immediately into the skin. However, it I have noticed makes me sweat. I mean it makes my face sweat... Ouch! Not a nice thing to happen :/ So I was wondering if I'd like it better during the colder months...

Also, for people with dry skin, this might not prove to be very moisturising, but I am betting that its perfect for lovelies with normal skin.

Fragrance wise, its got a subtle, understated, classy sort of a smell that I like.

If you have dry skin, then you might want to skip this, but for beauties for Normat to Oily skin, it could just be perfect!

P.S. Product sent by PR for consideration. However, my review is honest and is in no way biased.

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
