All my Skin Care Essentials

Wow its been so long that I did a blog post...well, the reason is not my laziness or anything..I just started working full time and let me tell you girls its a task handling the home and work along with a little one as well. However, I am taking my baby steps towards getting it all done and adjusting to everything. Anyways now that I have started working all that travelling and the horrible pollution in Pune is wrecking havoc on my skin. As a stay at home mom I hardly took care of my skin but now have to be extra cautious. So to get rid of those pesky blackheads and dull skin, I added some stuff to my skin care arsenal (um..makeup drawer). Here are all my skin care essentials that I am loving these days.



VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Lotion (Price: 175 INR) Once I joined my office I made the cardinal mistake of skipping a sunscreen for a couple of days and then on the third day I looked like somebody had burnt my skin :() So now I make a rule to apply sunscreen before anything. The VLCC sunscreen with SPF 30 is great. It is not heavy or too oily and the best thing is I don't tan so badly nowadays.



VLCC Pomegranate & Aloe Vera Gentle Exfoliating scrub (Price: 219 INR) I dunno when I became this VLCC fan but I am using a lot of their products these days and believe me some of the new launches are really good. This gentle scrub looks like a cream with minute red particles which I am guessing is pomegranate. Unlike other scrubs, i does the job without making my skin all bruised and red. Love this:)



Fabindia Lavendar cleansing milk (Price: 180 INR): This cleansing milk with lavender essential oils and grapeseed extracts is something I cannot live without. I think if there is one skin care essential that I need for the rest of my life it is this one. It has this cooling sensation and removes makeup excellently (except the stubborn mascara).


Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup (Price: 199 INR): I had heard great reviews of it from fellow bloggers. Decided to get it just to see what all the hype was about and totally loving it. Yes it does look like bird poop but believe me it works very very well. I use it twice in a week as a mask and it makes my face look all bright and glowy.





Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Lotion (Price: 118 INR for 120 ml): I generally do not love the other variant of lacto calamine as it makes my skin dry but this one works fine form me. Good as a moisturizer and even gives you a slight glow.





I also got the new BB cream from Garnier but will post a separate review for that. Meanwhile I am loving these cheap yet very effective skin care goodies. Do tell me what your skin care essentials are and whether you are using any of these products.

  6. The scrub seems nice. Does the sunscreen leave a whitish cast on ur skin? Most high SPF ones do that and I just hate it.
