ZA Amino Mineral Refreshing Gel

Hey Dolls!

Ever had an oily yet flaky skin. This is one of the biggest problem faced by people with a combination skin like me. a) Using two different products for my T-zone and cheeks simply doesn't sound feasible and b) Finding a single product that would work for both felt impossible.

Hence this Za Amino refreshing gel is the first of its kind I have found that claims to work for skin that is flaky yet greasy! I instantly gave it a try and I must say it is quite effective. It is a lightweight slippery gel that feels cool and watery on the skin - easy to blend and absorbs quickly. This gel gives an almost instant hydration boost to the skin and acts as water to my thirsty cheeks while feeling extremely light on my T-zone area. Its a dream come true for combination skin :)

Unfortunately Za hasn't launched this in India yet but lets keep our fingers crossed shall we ;)
Also do let me know if you guys know of any other similar products!

Product Rave: Forest Essentials Madhulika Nourishing Honey Lep Facial Treatment Masque

Hey Dolls!


The Forest Essentials Madhulika Nourishing Honey Lep is a facial treatment mask made up of 100% natural goodness including organic honey, orange peels, raw sugarcane, almond oil to name a few. This mask is thick in consistency as that of honey but not as runny. The main ingredient being organic honey in which is mixed a good portion of potent herbs that have been infused in cold pressed natural oils. Mmm.. Sounds delish, doesnt it ;)

This mask is my first ever Forest Essentials buy and boy oh boy there could have been no other better introduction to the brand. I recommend dampening the face with either water, rose water or milk (even better) prior application as this mask is pretty thick and can be difficult to spread out.

How I use this mask is I smooth it out across the face and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes and then massage it using dampened fingers before rinsing it away. I sometimes leave it on for more than 20 minutes as it doesnt dry up on the face. This mask also acts as a scrub when you massage it on as it contains tiny pieces of raw sugarcane and orange peel which are quite soft but nevertheless do an excellent job in exfoliating the skin without being harsh like a lot of other scrubs.

My skin feels absolutely soft and supple after using this mask. I feel it deeply cleanses my pores and removes any flakiness or sun damage my skin. I am obsessed with nourishing face masks and this Madhulika Nourishing Honey Lep does exactly that. It totally nourishes my skin and I end up using this so many times a week, its that addictive!

Talking about addiction, I feel this mask is too pricey for the amount of product that lies within. The packaging is very ethnic, almost royal looking which I love! BUT it is unnecessarily bulky for how much product it actually contains. This huge container has another tiny container lying within that holds the 50g of lep.
Rs.1475 is definitely costly especially when I am almost over with this jar in less than 2 months time!

Other than that this is a highly nourishing face mask that would suit all skin types and I highly recommend this :)

ZA True White Day Protector SPF 26

Hey Dolls!

Za is a Japanese brand (sister brand of Sheseido) which has recently launched some of its skin care lines here in India. I have been using a couple of their skincare products and today I am gonna review this True White Day Protector which comes with an SPF 26 PA++ which retails at Rs 799/-

This day cream comes with Vitamin C & E along with some minerals that are beneficial for the skin. As the name suggests it is a skin brightening cream that comes with sun protection.

It has a medium consistency, neither too thick nor too runny. Its a pure white cream that blends easily on the skin leaving it slightly glowy but not at all greasy looking. I like using it on my combination skin as it is definitely lightweight and provides just about enough moisture, nothing too excess.

However this may leave a slight white-cast on darker skin tones due to its brightening effects. I have also noticed a slight white-cast especially during flash photography.

This is a decent affordable moisturiser for the day time that comes with an SPF and doesn't clog pores. However I don't see myself repurchasing this one as it is nothing remarkable.
