The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body milk review

The Body Shop Moringa body milk comes in a plastic transparent bottle with black colored spray nozzle.  The transparent bottle makes it easier to know the amount of product left in the bottle. The spray pump has a black cap making it easy and spill proof to carry. The ingredients list and other details is written at the back of the bottle.

TBS Moringa body milk is a light weight, cream colored lotion with runny consistency. The thin consistency helps in proper spraying. It has an amazing floral fragrance which is light and not overpowering. The smell lingers on for few minutes before dissipating. TBS Moringa body milk is easy to spread and absorb. It doesnot feel sticky like some other variants of The Body Shop lotions (I am looking at you, Strawberry Puree lotion). However, I feel it was bit low on moisturizing on my dry skin and I would definitely need something richer for winters. However, it was just okay for summers, providing enough hydration to the skin to not feel uncomfortable.

Now coming to the packaging, I am not a fan of spray moisturizers and TBS Moringa spray nozzle felt bit hard to use and doesn’t spray effortlessly. You have to put in some effort to spray the lotion directly on the skin. So I had to spray the lotion on my hands and then spread it on my skin. And while spraying on the hands works fine, it feels unnecessary to have spray pump especially when the lotion is so liquidy that it can be directly poured from the bottle. Plus it needs 3-4 pumps of the spray nozzle to cover one hand, which might be an issue  if you are short on time.

If you are looking for a face lotion, I HIGHLY recommend THIS product

 

 

 

 

Overall, this a lightweight lotion with amazing floral fragrance. It  gets absorbed well and doesnot leave any stickiness on the skin. But I would probably not repurchase this as I find this bit low on hydration for my dry skin. The spray mechanism feels luxurious but honestly it is not my type. I prefer simple pump dispenser/ no dispenser at all. Also the spray mechanism is quite an effort to use. But I would definitely suggest this to oily skinned people who need a bit of moisturization especially in winter months. Also, these are available at reduced prices at the moment, but for the MRP printed on the bottle, I find this a little expensive. This is a perfect body lotion for hot and humid days when you want just enough hydration minus the feeling of heaviness. This is not a MUST TRY product but oily skinned people should check this out.

Garnier White Complete Fairness Face Wash

Price: Rs 145 for 100g

 

Garnier White Complete Fairness Face wash comes in attractive white and yellow tube packaging with flip cap. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The facewash has a very refreshing citrus smell, but it doesn not linger for long.

The facewash is pearlish white in color with creamy consisitency. It lathers well and leaves the skin squeaky clean after rinsing. I use a little more than pea-size quantity for my face. It doesnot feel heavy or leave any residue behind on the skin and rinses off easily with water.  It leaves the skin absolutely clean and fresh and removes every last trace of oil and grime from face. It however felt drying on my already dry skin, but oily skinned beauties will love this facewash.

I remove my eyeliners with oil based removers and therefore I need to wash my face and leftover oil on skin with a good facewash. Garnier White Complete fairness facewash is perfect for this. The skin feels thoroughly cleansed and refreshed after using this product. This facewash is absolutely perfect for removing makeup, grime and dirt after the long day at work.

I can not comment on the fairness aspect for overall skin tone but it did not help much in my blemishes and pigmentation on cheeks. But I really love this product to cleanse my face after removing makeup.

I’d recommend this facewash to everyone looking for a cleanser to remove every last traces of oil and dirt from skin. Overall, I feel this is an awesome budget friendly product to remove that last trace of oil and grime from the skin and I’d definitely recommend this to everyone!

Multi Action fairness cream for glowing skin :

1.Instant Whitening – provides instant whitening
2.Sun Protection with SPF 19 PA+++ – Protects skin from further darkening by harmful UVA and UVB sun rays
3.Long Lasting Fairness – Fairer skin over time with regular usage

 

My review of Garnier White Complete Multi action Fairness cream

The cream comes in a white opaque tub packaging with screw lid. The packaging is travel friendly but the tub packaging makes it bit unhygienic. Garnier White Complete Fairness Cream has a light whipped texture. It is highly emollient and absorbs completely into the skin without leaving any greasiness. It has refreshing citrus fragrance. The cream has an instant brightening effect and does not leave any whitish cast on skin. This cream is mattifying and contain SPF 19 PA+++ making it ideal for sultry summer days.

This is a non-oily cream, so girls who need a non-oily moisturizing cream should definitely check this one out. I have dry skin so I find this cream not nourishing enough, but my brother has oily skin and he loves this!

Overall, if you are looking for non-oily, mattifying day cream with instant brightening effect, do check this one out. I would recommend this more to oily skinned people as dry skinned people like me will need an additional moisturizer over it.
