What: NUDE Skincare Advanced Renewal Overnight Repair Mask
Packaging: As you can see in the pictures, this mask comes in a square shaped jar which looks kind of cute! I really like the color actually. And the jar is quite light weight too!
Review: This is an overnight repair mask which helps moisturize ‘stressed’ skin. Lately, my skin has been acting very, very, very dry! It may be because of the skin treatment I am going through. But whatever it is, my skin feels very dry all the time. I have been using this product only for a week or so and I must say I am quite impressed since I have seen instant results. The consistency of the cream is very thick. You really have to warm up the product by rubbing it between your finger tips. And as soon as you apply it on the skin, it get absorbed, it happens quite fast. And a little bit goes a very long way. This may be a perfect night cream for extreme winters (or if you are one of those with extremely dry skin). I haven’t had any breakouts due to this product. *Warning* – This product ‘may not’ be suitable for oily skin at all.
To some, this mask may be a bit on the expensive side, but I don’t mind the price since I know this will last me very long and I am seeing very good results, hence I have no complains!
How I use it: I perform my daily regimen of cleansing and toning at night before going to bed. Then I apply this mask all over my face and neck. These days I am also using this under eye cream and it’s working wonders. In the morning when I wake up, my skin feels really good. It’s neither oily nor dry. It just feels soft and supple like it should!
Price: A 1.7 oz jar is priced at $48.00. It is easily available at any Sephora store.
Cons: I don’t see this product has any cons!
Here comes the next review! If you are looking for a delicious smelling intense moisturizer? Then this review might be for you..!!
What: Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer
Packaging: It comes in an orange colored glass jar. Just by looking at the jar, you could imagine that this product has something to do with citrus fruits.
My Verdict: It’s a really good moisturizer. It does the job of moisturizing my skin well. A very good product to switch to, specially in winters. I really like how it smells. It smells of oranges. The smell may be a ‘little’ strong for some, but I don’t mind it at all! The texture is very light. It gets absorbed in to the skin very easily. It does not leave any oily residue afterwards. These days I am using it as a night cream because it’s an intense moisturizer. I apply it on my face and neck at night after washing my face. And the next morning, my facial skin feels very soft and glowing. There are no dry patches or white lines anymore. I tend to apply it a little more than the usual ‘pea-sized’ amount, but that’s just me because my skin has been acting extremely dry these days (thanks to the cold harsh winter winds). This product is very good for normal to dry skin. I don’t know how will it work on oily skin, so can’t comment on it. Anyways.. it’s a good moisturizer.
Cons: The fruity smell.. and that too if you are not into citrus fruits.. like AT. ALL. (I personally love it). Another con could be the price. It’s a little on the expensive side for a moisturizer.
Okay, let’s get to the point and agree to the fact that with this post I am introducing product reviews on this tiny little blog! 🙂
Since that’s settled, our first product is going to be an under eye cream! I wasn’t much of an under-eye cream girl (if that’s even a thing), but since I used a sample of this product, I had to buy the full sized bottle. So here we go!
What: Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream
Packaging: The packaging is kind of nice. It comes in a box and the bottle’ lid is designed like a cork. I threw the box before clicking these pictures (such-a-bummer!!)
Benefit promises that it’s a brightening eye cream and it fades dark circles.
My verdict: The cream has a good consistency. It gets quickly absorbed in the skin even when dabbed lightly. It does not feel oily at all, although my skin feels soft even the next morning when I wake up! So this really works! I have been using it for the past 2 weeks now and I already feel the difference. Do you see how my dark circles have almost vanished! (Yayy to that!!) Okay, you may please ignore the sun tan in the first picture, and look at the under eye area specifically. Let me also throw a little disclaimer here that I am NOT wearing ANY make-up in any of the above pictures. It’s all bare face! The second picture (with the hat) was taken today. Thanks to the extremely cold weather, all my tan has faded away and I am enjoying tan-free skin these days!
So back to our review. My under eye area feels bright with (almost) no dark circles and extremely hydrated! It just glows. So it’s a BIG YES to this product!
