AROMA MAGIC HYDRO GEL REVIEW


AROMA MAGIC HYDRO GEL REVIEW

Hi everyone...today I'll do a review on Aroma Magic Hydro Gel.
So I brought this product almost a month back by seeing it on an online shopping site and I really wanted to try it because it claimed to be light and is in a gel form. Let me also tell you another reason for buying this. I am from Kolkata. The words ‘Kolkata’ and ‘Sweat’ goes hand in hand. People who live in Kolkata or has been in Kolkata during this time knows exactly what I mean. Whatever you put on, it gets washed away by sweat if you are not in AC. So I wanted to try a light moisturizer which will get absorbed easily.



DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT
A deep nourishing & lubricating gel rich in lactic acid. Prevents skin dehydration & dryness. Regenerates cellular tissue & prevents skin degeneration. Leaves skin smooth, nourished, luminous & shades lighter.

PRICE
Rs. 85 for 25g

INGREDIENTS
Extracts of Seaweed, Aloe Vera, Rosemary & pure essential oils of Geranium, Lavender & Jasmine.

PACKAGING
It comes in a tub with a red screw cap. The mouth of the tub is covered with a foil.




DIRECTIONS TO USE
For oily skin, apply and leave on. For dry skin, use under moisturising lotion. 



MY EXPERIENCE WITH AROMA MAGIC HYDRO GEL
It’s a totally transparent gel like thing. I won’t say it’s very good to smell as it does not have any fragrance but it gives me a fresh feeling. It smells kind of aloe vera or something like that. I generally use it after taking bath. It requires very small amount as it is water based. It does moisturize the skin well, at least for summers. Although I am a bit doubtful about it’s moisturizing capabilities in winters. But for summers its perfect as it doesn't make your skin sticky or greasy. One of the most important feature of this product is that as it is gel based, its gets absorbed totally within a minute or two and makes your skin look hydrated.

LAKME FACE MAGIC DAILY WEAR SOUFFLE


Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle:
 
Hi there...
So today I'll review Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle. I bought this product about a few months back. I came across this product on an online shopping site. What made me determined to buy this, was the price. Although I didn't buy this online, I rather went to the mall and bought this. I wanted to try this first but the Sales Assistant told me that they don't have a tester for this product. But still I decided to buy as it wasn't too expensive for an experiment.












 


DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT

A light weight water based foundation that gently evens out our complexion. With the goodness of sunscreen, cucumber extracts and Vitamin E. It provides UV protection in addition to soothing and moisturizing, giving you a natural flawless glow.


PRICE:

Rs. 99 for 30 ml


INGREDIENTS
Not mentioned.

PACKAGING

It comes in a small transparent glass pot type container with a plastic cap. The actual content of the product is 30 ml but when I saw it on the online shopping site, it seemed bigger :P










MY EXPERIENCE WITH LAKME FACE MAGIC DAILY WEAR SOUFFLE:

To be very frank, I didn't know the meaning of 'Souffle'. I searched the dictionary for the meaning which said something like "light baked dish made fluffy with beaten egg whites...." etc etc. The dictionary meaning gave me an illusion of the product to be light weight, semi creamy...sort of a mousse type. But when I actually saw that souffle thing at home, it was totally different.
On just seeing the product, without even applying it, I was sure that I wasted rs.99. The texture is very peculiar. It’s neither creamy nor liquid. And it has a really strong fragrance which is a sure shot a put off. Despite being the lightest shade (Natural Pearl), its one shade darker to my skin tone. It’s neither a foundation nor a moisturizer. It really gave me a tanned look. It gets greasy and sticky. I have a combination skin and it still broke out on me L. It’s a total no no for oily people.

 

SWATCHES:

Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor: Bronze Orange

I am not much of a Lipcolor person. I always like to put on a little gloss and get going. But recently I am on the hunt for good and economic natural shades lipcolors. One thing I made sure that as am not a regular lipstick person, I wouldn't invest a lot of money on a single lipcolor. From the launch of Maybelline's Color Sentational range, I've been hearing some good reviews about the products. So here's my 1st Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in Bronze Orange shade.





BRAND CLAIMS

Maybellime Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color is composed of crisp color from pure color pigments that give you rich opaque lips. The lipstick feels very creamy, with is built in lip balm that also has SPF 15 for sun protection.


PRICE

250


ABOUT THE SHADE BRONZE ORANGE
 



BRONZE ORANGE is a nice color with orange undertone. It is not a deep color. It’s a very pretty color. It does not contain any shimmer. At the beginning as I said I was generally in the lookout for a perfect day look lip color and I must say Bronze Orange did qualify my criteria. I just put 1 swipe of the lip color and top it up with a lip gloss.


TEXTURE OF THE LIP COLOR




Texture of the lipstick is very smooth. It glides on the lips effortlessly. Just 1 swipe is enough for the day look. The color and intensity can be built up easily with 2 to 3 swipes.







MY TAKE

  • Am loving  it :)




PROS OF THE LIP COLOR

  • Smooth
  • Good pigmented
  • Contains SPF 15
  • Doesn't bleed


CONS OF THE LIP COLOR

  • Staying power is not more than 3 hours


RATING

  • 4 out of 5
