L’Oreal Hydrafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel!


Hello Dear Readers 

I believe you have been well. 
Today I am going to review my newly discovered moisturizer L’Oreal Hyderafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel. This product claims to hydrate & mattify oily skin at the same time so I had to try it.
Product Claims:
This Icy gel contains deep marine source water enriched in minerals
to improve skin moisture and help prevent water loss. Enriched in Zinc,
known for its powerful sebum regulating properties, this Icy gel helps
to bring shine control. The formula also contains micro-sponges that
help to absorb the excess of sebum for immediate and long term matify.
Dermatologically tested on Asian skin.  Results, immediately skin is
cooled down, durably matifies and quenched for all day. Day after day
skin gets rid of shininess and pores are clear and tightened. Skin is
smooth and evened out. Full of moisture, it is “water-bouncy” and looks
healthier like “water transparent.”
My Experience:
I have been using this for about two weeks now & I can say that after Ponds Flawless White Day cream (Review here) I really like this one. This is one affordable moisturizer perfect for summers I got mine from Naheed Super Store for PKR 650.
 It has gel like texture, very light easy to wear keeps my skin hydrated & my Oily T-Zone Matte. It gets absorb into skin very quickly, gives instant ice-y felling & has got cucumber-y smell to it which I like. I did not encounter any kind of break outs with its usage plus it didn’t make my make up melt.
Things I dislike about this product;
1. Packaging the gel comes in a heavy jar which makes it Unhygienic & not suitable for traveling.
2 . It does not stay put for long time keeps my face matte just for three hours.
I would not recommend it if you have dry skin & I don’t believe that I will be needing this one in winters but its perfect for summers. Purchase it if you want a good quality affordable moisturizer for oily skin.

Garnier Oil Control Fairness Cream!

Garnier Light Oil Control Fairness Cream

Hello Readers!

Here I am with another product review and this time its Garnier Oil control Fairness Cream. I may be the last person on the planet earth to try this but anyways =p
Here is Product Claim:
If you have an oily and dull skin with acne marks. Now you can fix them
all. Garnier light oil control fairness cream makes your skin fairer,
visibly lighten acne marks and reduces excess oil. Perfectly clarified,
your skin is mattified up to 8 hours. Its unique formula combines
selected active ingredients:
  • Pure Lemon Essence to clarify the skin and help remove dullness. 
  • Oil – Trapping Technology to help reduce excess oil and control sebum for an 8 hours shine free look.

Its ultra light texture is non
greasy, non sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin for an all day
comfort and shine free look. Use Garnier whenever possible, carefully
extracted nature-based active ingredients. Garnier products are
dermatologically tested for their tolerance and efficacy of products is

My Experience:
Garnier Oil Control has got Moose like texture and I find it hard to apply as it gets absorbed too quickly. Be careful, don’t apply it again and again your face will become flaky. The cream is ultra light textured perfect for summers it has got lemony fragrance which pretty much stays in the tube.
 Garnier oil control has got perfect formula & it keeps my T- Zone matte. Another good thing about it is that it contains SPF 15 which could be recommended for day use. I did not experience any breakout with its usage but it does not last up to 8 hours that’s total exaggeration of facts it lasts for three to four hours on me. As far as the fairness is concerned I did not notice any significant effects on my skin. Therefore I recommend you to use it only to get shine free face not fair face.

I have mine in 40ml tube which is priced at PKR 199 there is another one 20ml priced at PKR 99. Good product worth a try…

Sensational Cream Foundation in Classy Pink!

Mikyajy 22k Sensational Cream Foundation

Hello Readers!

How have you been? Weather is finally changing in Karachi  and I thought that I should share my foundation which I am currently using. Today I am going to review a Sensational cream foundation by Mikyajy.

Mikyajy 22k sensational cream foundation

I remember I made a haul post when I got this one. 
It is from the 22k range and I have mine in 02 Classy Pink.  At first I thought this is not my shade , as it was purchased by my father, but when I used it I realized that it suits me pretty well.

Here is what Mikyajy says about it.
 Smooth, radiant skin can be achieved with this high coverage foundation.
all imperfections and flaws disappear beneath a thin layer of this
product, as its light, purifying waxes promise high color release.
nourishing ingredients help reduce natural sebum.

The Sensational Cream Foundation has got perfect pigmentation to provide medium to light coverage.
It lasts well for like good five hours and after that it need touch ups.The foundation blends very easily to perfection. Thank God it did not give me the oily look as I have normal to oily skin I was very worried about greasy face. I didn’t encounter any breakouts while its usage. 
It comes in variety of colors and its easy to apply either with sponge or hand.
  I Love how Mikyajy pack their products they are all of good quality and pretty looking. The mirror is also attached n its big which make this product a hit.
This one has creamy texture which feels little heavy when applied, for that I am going to give it a miss. It has got fragrance to it as well but it pretty much stays in the pan.The finish of this foundation, as you may notice in the picture, is not matte but its not shiny too. The finish is somewhere in between shiny n matte. well its a good foundation for its price. 
I am sure I will repurchase it I think that’s all for today.

You can get it from any Mikyajy store. Tell me guys have you tried this one? 


Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream!

Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream

Flawless White Naturals Day
Hello Readers how have you been? Here
is another product review of Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream.  Please don’t think that I am
someone who wants to be fairer I love my skin color but these days I am bit
worried about marks at my skin. I have been using this cream full time for four weeks now and I like the results. I must say that texture of cream is so light
and soft. When applied I never feel that I am wearing any kind of cream on my
face its very light weight. I hate those creams and moisturizers which gives me
greasy feeling and makes my face look oily. Pond’s Day Cream has got very soft
and nice smell to it which is kind of floral and fades away when applied on
face. The cream gets absorbed into skin in no time and gives me nice
smooth look which is so not oily and greasy. The jar is pretty looks good at my
dressing but it is really heavy as it is made of glass. I hate to take it with
me when I travel as it takes a lot of space in my makeup bay. I don’t feel that
my skin color has lightened but it has enhanced with its usage and yes the
marks/ spots at my checks, caused by pimples, have noticeably
reduced. The price of pond’s Flawless White Naturals is Rs: 975. Overall I like
this cream a lot I will definitely purchase it, at the moment it’s the only cream which
gives me non greasy and matte look.
Here is what Pond’s
claim about product:
Pond’s Flawless White Natural day
cream contains the wonder of Camellia leaf extract. Found in the foothills of
the Himalayas, this precious extract contains powerful antioxidants to fight
against the causes of skin darkening. After years of research, Pond’s Flawless
