Updated from March 2013. Revamping old product reviews of random products. Some might still be available in the market and some might have been discontinued.
Dove Essential Nourishment Body Lotion Deep Care Complex
When the ads came up on television, I was quite excited about it but then never really came around buying it. So, when I got this in a package from BeBeautiful, I was kind of excited to try it out.
And, I am happy that I didn’t buy it. No, I don’t wanna say its a bad product. But, it has quite many disadvantages. As you all would already be aware, my skin is dry and, in winters, it needs proper moisturization with thick lotions.
So, I thought this would be a good fit. It glides on skin very easily and disappears soon enough. And, here, starts the problem. After a while, it becomes sticky! Even the clothes start sticking to the body!!
And, it was still sticky when I used to take only a pea size amount which was quite surprising. And, considering Hyderabad is a dry climate area, humidity issue is ruled out.
Lakme Peach Milk Moisturizer
It is a thin pinkish lotion. There is an issue with the product. Sometimes, you can see only pink water coming out of the bottle which means emulsion is not stable. So, I had to shake the bottle every time before using.
Now, when I used it as a moisturizer, my skin felt dry after 20-30 minutes of application only. So, I had to discontinue using it as a moisturizer but it was perfect for a body lotion.
My body never felt dry except my arms which are prone to excessive dryness. So, I would suggest this as a body lotion unless you have a normal skin. I am not sure if it suits oily skin!
Ponds White Beauty Peel-Off Instant Brightening Mask
This was another product I wanted to try but never got around buying it and I am glad. Nah, the product is good and delivers immediate but short-lived results. But, the problem is its smell.
When I apply this product on the face, it smells so strongly of something like ammonia or some chemical that it becomes difficult to breathe. The smell doesn’t linger on skin. It stays for just a few seconds while applying the product.
But, its enough to deter a person to use the product. One needs to apply a thick layer of this mask which dries off in about 15-20 minutes and then it peels off easily without clumping anywhere.
The results were amazing when I used it for the first time. I could see immediate brightening of the face. But, sadly, it wasn’t visible after 2-3 hours which was quite disappointing.
