May 16, 2014

We are all familiar with Shiseido, aren’t we? And when I heard that they are launching a special skin care line called ‘ZA’, I had to scribble down some beauty notes. Personally, I am not that big on beauty products. But skin care is something I am bound to obey and follow up. When I was approached to review a ‘Whitening cream’, I felt repelled. I am one of those people who will never ever promote skin fairness products. But when I went through the press note, this product didn’t seem like a ‘fairness cream’ but more of a helping you get-rid-of-blemishes cream. March-April-May is the crucial spring/summer time when your skin goes berserk trying to adjust with the crazy weather. Not to forget, that this year Delhi has received quite an amount of unusual rains. My skin being a combination type usually becomes hard to manage in such seasons. In desperation, I gave into trying a lot of products and surprisingly Za turned out to be the winner!  My Experience The consistency might seem thick, but when you apply the cream on your face it dissolves in no time and does not leave behind a sticky skin issue. The cream is quite light and can be the perfect summer moisturizer (might vary from skin to skin). Likes Dissolves into the skin with ease Light on skin (even in harsh summers) Reduces blemishes Perfect moisturizer SPF20-PA++ (A must in summers) Broad jar for easy access Mild fragrance Stays on for 8-9 hours Dislikes Patience for at least a month to see the results. Blessing in disguise, but worth it! Availability in India. Rating Value for Money : 3.5/5 Quality : 4.5/5 Quantity : 4/5 Results : 4/5 Usage : 2 months approx.

INNISFREE – Korean Beauty Secrets now in India

November 21, 2013

Last weekend, I was invited for a hand care ritual by the recently launched Korean brand called ‘Innisfree’. The beauty enthusiasts who belong to Delhi, are already familiar with it’s presence. Centrally located in one of the shopping hubs of Delhi, Innisfree is making it’s presence felt in this already blooming giant market of beauty and body brands. Launched in 2000 as Amore Pacific’s first eco-friendly brand, Innisfree Korea’s claims to be a naturalism beauty brand. Having it’s wings spread overseas, Innisfree currently operates 800 stores including South Korea, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and India. Growing and producing products from the world famous Jeju islands, this brand guarantees effective skin and beauty care with the wholesome goodness of nature. And I was to about to experience just that! When I stepped inside the store, I was taken on a store tour, and was introduced to a wide collection of beauty and skin range. The interesting part about these collections was that they were way beyond the usual fruits, vegetables and plants oriented ranges that we get to see in other brands. Olives, Red Wine, Jeju Green Tea and Jeju Volcanic Pore are some of the ingredients that have been designed keeping in mind the different skin types. The ‘Hand Ritual‘ consisted of a very surprisingly gentle exfoliation regime with just a drop of a serum, which not only scrubbed off the impurities and dead skin cells, but it resulted in a lighter skin tone as well. I could actually see the difference in both of my hands. This was followed by a very relaxing hand massage with a moisturizer which suits the current state of your skin. Out of the 3 choices from normal – dry – extremely dry, I chose the one to cure ‘dryness’, to deal with …
