Importance of SPF

  The temperature in Karachi seems to be increasing day by day, with little to no sign of a pleasant, rainy day. The harmful rays, in technical words the “Ultra Violet”, emitted from the sun can cause severe damage to our skin. To seek protection from UV radiation, we Karachites are compelled to apply sunscreen whenever we go out in the field.

Importance of SPF

    SPF, or rather “Sun Protection Factor”, is the measure of how much protection can the sunscreen provide against the rays of the sun. It is a myth that the higher the SPF, the more the protection against the devil (sorry, the sun!). The experts recommend using SPF 30. This is because there is not much of a difference between the effectiveness of SPF 30 and for e.g. SPF 50. SPF 50 is said to give you only 1% more protection as compared to SPF 30. The use of SPF 30 sunscreen every two hours guarantees 97% protection against the UV rays, which is considered to be enough for most situations.

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.

NIVEA Sun Invisible Protection Transparent Spray!

Nivea sun invisible protection transparent spray

Hello Lovely readers!

Today I bring you a review of Nivea Sun Invisible Protection Transparent Spray. I purchased it before going to Malaysia and Thank God I purchased it from my dear Homeland because this baby was expensive over there.  Anyways I knew that Sunscreen is going to be a must thing to buy because I was going to hit the beaches in Langkawi. I went to Hyperstar and Purchased it for I guess RS: 400 or 600 I am not sure sorry! 

 Overview 
NIVEA SUN INVISIBLE PROTECTION has a non-greasy and transparent texture which offers immediate & effective protection.
 It is quickly absorbed and non-sticky.
 Water resistant.
 How to apply 
Do not spray into the face directly.
Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently,
especially after swimming and towelling to maintain the original
protection. 
  • Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure. 
    Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight, wear
    protective clothing und use suffificient sunscreen for unprotected
    areas.
    Shake well before use.     

    Ingredients
     

    SPF 30
    Alcohol
    Denat., C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Homosalate, Octocrylene, Cyclomethicone,
    Glycerin, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Salicylate,
    Acrylates/Octylacrylamide Copolymer,
    Aqua,
    Limonene, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Acetate,
    Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Eugenol, Citronellol, Coumarin, Geraniol, Benzyl
    Alcohol, Parfum.
    Here is how I find it.
    I really is a good buy for someone who has got sensitive skin. 
     The Bottle is good pretty much handy very easy to apply.  It did give me some tan but pretty much saved my sensitive skin from sun burn. It stayed for quiet long and it is water resistant.
    Though it did give me a great protection from scorching sun and salty water of Langkawi Beaches but it gave me really bad greasy look just for a time being and then got absorbed. It has got noticeable balmy sort of smell to it so please purchase it if you can bear the smell of it because it fades away slowly. I believe it is available at good stores across the country.  I did not encounter any irritation while using it nor did my husband.
    The best part that it is really reasonable in Pakistan I got mine for around 400 to 600 ( sorry for not being sure) but when I checked it Malaysia It was for RM 33 which means PRK 1056. 
    All in all it is one good product to save you from sun burn and gives you a good tan.

Olay Day Lotion!

Olay Natural White Healthy Fairness Day Lotion!



Hello readers.. How have you been? Today’s post is about my sun block lotion. First of all I don’t believe that any cream can make you fair, for me this is a misconception. Creams which claims to make you fair or lighten your complexion only enhances your complexion for a time being. I got this lotion couple of months ago and I have finished almost half of it. It comes in off white colored bottle with a silver cap on it. Here is my experience with the product so far. 

It has got SPF 24 which protects from UVA/UVB rays. It acts as a good moisturizer and sun barrier at the same time. The texture of the lotion is very light( non sticky), it absorbs quickly into skin and keeps it well moisturized. I have used this product mostly in winters as I have oily skin and this lotion works very well on my skin.Though I don’t prefer using it in summers as I get bit of oil at my T zone with its usage( may be problem with my skin). It has got floral kind of fragrance so if you are someone who is sensitive to fragrances then I would give this product a miss. Very small amount of lotion is needed for application I am using it since November and the bottle is half empty. I didn’t experience any breakouts with the usage of this product which is a hit. The bottle is very light weight and very travel friendly, you can put it in your  bag and go anywhere without regret of heavy weight. It does not makes you fair as written on the bottle. Can be purchased from any super market or beauty shop. As a conclusion I can say that 
It is very good SPF product.
Inexpensive
Non Greasy and light weight
Moisturizes well 
Travel Friendly
What Product claims:
Nourish your skin with nutrients for healthy looking natural fairness that glows. Its formula with triple nutrient system – Vitamins B3, pro-B5 & E nourishes your skin to reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness for a healthy looking natural fairness that glows. It also has SPF 24 that protects skin from the harmful UVA/B rays. For something light on the skin, the lotion is formulated to get quickly absorbed in the skin and is suitable for combination to oily skin types.
