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.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us.

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…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
