Murad Oil Control Mattifier

Murad Oil Control Mattifier
Hello My Gorgeous Readers
I believe you have been well and today I have a review of Murad Oil Control Mattifier with SPF15  for you guys. It claims to protect skin while providing all day oil control.

What it is:
A shine-reducing moisturizer that controls oil for up to eight hours, decreases breakouts, and protects skin.

What it is formulated to do:
Oil-Control Mattifier
reduces shine on contact and is clinically proven to control oil for up
to eight hours while effectively reducing breakouts. It immediately
mattifies, regulating oil throughout the day, and prevents sun damage by
delivering powerful UVA/UVB sun protection. It is ideal for acne-prone
skin and is recommended as a step three moisturizer in any Murad acne
regimen, while eliminating surface shine and reducing breakouts as part
of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care. 

My Experience:
I purchased this deluxe sample of the product to try and test it before spending large amount on the full sized product. It a part of Murad Acne solution kit and comes in little white tube. The texture of Murad Oil Control Mattifier is a bit thick and gluey may be that’s the reason its a bit difficult to spread. Once its spread properly it works like a charm it keeps my Oily T-Zone matte for very good period of time sometimes I just use it as a moisturizer and it works fine. It has some sort of weird smell to it but it does not bother me at all.  Over all its one great product for maintaining oil control and acne problems.

Its a bit expensive $40 for 1.7OZ and can be purchased from Sephora tell me have you tried this one?

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector review & Giveaway

Garnier Miracle Skin perfector BB Cream

Hello Gorgeous Readers!
believe you have been well, I am back after 17 days with a lot f energy
and new products to share with you guys but first I would like to talk
about a cream which I loved the most on my trip Garnier BB Cream Miracle
skin perfector in shade light. I know I am the last one but I have finally joined the Garnier BB Cream Bloggers Hype, better late than never.  At first I thought that light shade is too dark for my skin but it matched perfectly. 

Here is what Garnier Claims:
The Problem:

Skin concerns, such as discoloration, dullness, blotchiness and
dryness can come from a number of different sources. It’s hard to find
just one product that adresses all these concerns at once.

Garnier introduces its first BB Cream, Miracle Skin Perfector.
Multi-benefit skincare that combines intense hydration with tinted
minerals and vitamin C.

The Result:
Instantly: Skin looks naturally more even, radiant and smooth.
After just one use
of women reported instantly smoothed skin upon application

of women noticed a more even complexion

of women said that their skin had a healthy glow after use
My Experience:
BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector comes in good looking 50ml tube which
is very travel friendly I Love BB Creams I believe they are great
alternative to wearing foundation on daily basis. Garnier BB Cream has
got thick creamy consistency I usually apply it after moisturizing my
skin and  it blends very smoothly. This Cream is very light weight
provides decent coverage and gives dewy finish.  The best part is that
it hides red patches, blemishes marks and evens out my skin tone.  I
took this little tube with me on my trip to Saudia and I loved wearing
it in Madinah as weather there was cold and dry and I used to apply
Garnier BB Cream for decent
coverage.  What I don’t like about this BB Cream is the smell
of it, though it remain in the tube only, and it fades away quickly other than that its a good product for everyday use.

 You can get Garnier BB Cream
from any superstore across Pakistan and it comes with the price tag of
PKR 449 for 50ml tube.

Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roller

Garnier Naturals Skin renewal Anti dark circle roller

Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller
 If you are someone
who suffers from dark circles and in need of a good light weight concealer which
instantly hides your dark marks away, then you definitely should check out
Garnier Anti-Dark Circles Eye Roller. 
it right for me?

Over time, lack of sleep and daily fatigue make eyes look tired.
Microcirculation slows and the delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner
and more translucent. Dark circles and shadows appear.
Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller is right for you if you want to instantly
correct the appearance of dark circles and brighten the skin around your eyes:
  • Dermatologist
    tested for safety
    Ophthalmologist tested
  • Gentle
    to skin
  • Allergy
  • Non-greasy

How do I use it?
Gently roll Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Eye Roller under the eye from the inner
corner to the outer corner, one to two times. Use finger to smooth in any
excess with fingertips.

How do I use Skin Renew products together?
After cleansing with your favorite Garnier cleanser, use Skin Renew
Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 28. Apply Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle
Eye Roller in the morning and as needed throughout the day.

For advanced care, incorporate into your routine:
Skin Renew Radiance Moisture Cream

talk about the packaging first, it seems very convenient with a roller
applicator that you roll under your eye and smudge it with brush or finger but
it becomes very mess after you use it for couple of times as the roller
dispense out too much product than required. Garnier Anti-dark circler eye
roller is enriched with Zesty lemon plus has got sunscreen to protect under eye
area from UV rays. This eye roller is not heavily pigmented but provides light
to medium coverage & conceals dark circles very well, just roller out some
product under your eye from inner corner to outer corner, give it a rest and
then smudge outwards with the help of your ring finger. The texture of this
concealer is thin, runny it blends really well feels very light I like how it
brightens my under eye area plus it has got some fragrance to it as well.
 As far as the lasting power of Garnier anti-dark
circle roller is concerned, we are satisfied with it as it stays put for good
four to five hours if applied over the foundation, if applied on its own it
stays put for good three hours. It sometimes settle into lines when under eye
skin is dry hence moisturizing before hand is a key to achieve good result. It
does not look cakey at all it’s by all means the easiest and lightweight
concealer I have ever used.
Anti-Dark Circle eye roller has got to be the most light weight and easiest concealer
which provide good coverage. Getting a sample before purchasing is a must but
still I would recommend this to those who don’t face the problem of serious
deep dark circles.

Anti-Dark circle eye roller comes with the price tag of PKR990 and can be
purchased from any Garnier counter across Pakistan or

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

Hello Gorgeous Readers! I believe you have been well Today you will read my review of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. After reading a lot of good reviews about this one I asked my relative to get me one in shade named Alaska from US. 

Product Claim:

“Your skin – almost bare, but better. This advanced, oil-free formula
provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to
reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four
weeks. Infused with lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients
to immediately helps thirsty skin feel hydrated. Kopara from French
Polynesia and mineral rich seawater revive and re-mineralize skin for a
softer, smoother, and brighter natural glow. Skin is transported.”

  My Experience:

I love how classy the packaging is with a flip cap which makes this tube travel friendly.  NARS Pure Radiant Tinted moisturizer provides sheer coverage to my skin with a dewy finish. The consistency of moisturizer is little runny, I like how it blurs out imperfections and it fells very light weight on skin.  Pure Radient tinted moisturizer blends easily and smells good too, keep in mind if you are looking for heavy coverage then this product is not for you.  The product is amazing it moisturizes wonderfully stays put for good period of time and it never broke me out.  I first used this one in summers it felt a bit oily on my face( I have normal to oily skin), I kept it aside now I have started using it again and I am happy that I didn’t give this one. I still get shiny face with this one but I set it with pressed powder. 
 Its hell expensive come with the price tag of $42 for 50ml tube from SEPHORA and comes in twelve different shades. 

Here is  how it wears on me, upper picture without the application of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and the lower one after application. You can see how sheer coverage it provides and how glow-y it is.

Pond’s Active Cleansing System

Pond’s Daily Facewash with Active cleansing System

Hello readers and here I am with another Pond’s Face wash review for you guys. 

I purchased Pond’s Daily Face Wash Active Cleansing System thinking that almost all other Pond’s products have worked well on my skin & there is no harm in trying another one.
Product Description: 

Ponds daily face wash is gentle on skin. Active cleansing system cleans
gently and cares for your skin better than soap.Thoroughly cleanses
without leaving slippery feeling on skin. Suitable for normal, dry, oily
and combination skin type.

The face wash comes in white tube with a tight flip cap which ensures non-messy discharge of the product hence making this tube travel friendly. Pond’s Daily Face Wash with Active Cleansing System, just like all other pond’s products, also contain mild fragrance to it, which does not bother me what bothers me is that it
leaves behind very horrible slippery feeling which does not go away
even after washing my face with water for hundred times it remains
there. I did not encounter any kind of breakout with its usage it also cleanse my skin properly but I just can’t use it because it does not come off easily. It was very reasonably priced, I don’t really remember how much I paid for it but I guess it was around PKR 125 something. Its very easily available on all Superstores across Pakistan.  

 Tell me guys have you tried this one? Did it work for you?
