This remedy worked on my skin.I wouldn’t guarantee that it will work on you as well, we all have different skin issues. Since it’s all natural there is no harm trying it. However, If you have chronic acne issue, I suggest you take some advice from a dermatologist first.

Since lemon acts like a natural bleach, this scrub will brighten your skin and add a healthy glow to it.

Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture Review

Is your skin oily or somewhere in between dry and oily, or ‘combination skin’ as we call it?’ Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture is what you need to try!

I have oily T- Zone and mostly dry around the eye corners . Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture works best for me, I especially love applying under makeup. It’s non sticky and gives the right amount of moisture required.

Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture

Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture has no SPF so I prefer wearing it in the evening  . They also have moisturizer with SPF, but I chose the one without the SPF as I wanted a moisturizer that can be used at night as well. Since it has no fragrance, I love to add a drop of lavender essential oil and use it as night cream. The soothing scent of the fragrance helps me sleep better, well I’ll be taking more about essential oils in my next blog post. For now let’s get back to Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer.

Before I go on talking about what really I liked about the product, let’s see what they claim.

Product Claims: Neutrogena oil free moisture for combination skin is clinically proven to normalize combination skin by moisturising dry areas while controlling shine in oily areas for softer, smoother skin.
Moisturises dry areas. Lightweight, non-greasy formula moisturizes where skin is dry, without leaving it oily or shine. Skin looks and feels softer and smoother.
Controls shine in oily areas. Clinically proven oil-absorbing MICROSPONGE system controls oil and shine in the T-Zone, or wherever skin is oily for a natural, matte finish all day.
Won’t clog pores. Oil-free formula absorbed quickly and won’t clog pores, which can cause breakouts.

Direction: Use 1 pump and apply all over face and neck. Use morning and night alone or under makeup. Avoid contact with the eyes.

Price: 349 INR  Buy Here

Quantity: 118 ml

Packaging: It comes in a white plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle is not see through so you can’t estimate how much product  you have used. Overall the packaging is little boring!

Why do I love the product?

One of the main reason why I love this moisturizer is because it feels really light on my oily skin. It keeps my skin moisturized through out the day without making it look too oily. Since it has no fragrance, I routinely mix it with my collection of essential oils and use it as I like it.

Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture  Pros:

  • Non-sticky
  • Extremely light on skin
  • Odorless
  • Travel friendly, just twist the neck of the dispenser and it gets locked.

Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture Cons

  • No SPF in the combination skin oil- free moisture (well, I wouldn’t exactly consider that as cons as they also have moisturizer with SPF in it, so you decide.)

Will I buy Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture again?

Yes! This is my second bottle, once it’s over I am sure going to go for another one.  🙂

Nykaa Matte lipstick:Naughty Nude Review

Hello everyone!
I am back with another review for this week, and it’s on Nykaa Matte Lipstick!
Nykaa Matte lipstick
I got this beautiful nude shade named Naughty nude from Nykaa matte lipstick range few months back, and I can’t hold myself back to tell you’ll how I feel about the product. Read on….
I normally prefer bold lipsticks , but there are also times when I like to draw more attention to my eyes by skipping the bold lipsticks. Most nude lipsticks makes me look washed out or sick, even worst. So this time I made a point to buy something that has either pink or peach  undertone, because brown undertone nudes are just not my game. Having heard so many good things about the product, I wanted to check it out myself. I ordered Nykaa Matte lipstick in the shade Naughty Nude online from
Packaging: I love the packaging. It comes in a classy black​ tube with a magnetic lid. The packaging is strong and doesn’t​ accidentally open inside the bags, which other wise is a common scene problem with other lipsticks. The magnet led keep the lipstick inside secure and airtight.
Price: 399 rs
Pros: Perfect nude,  Fairly priced, long lasting, smooth on lips, very Moisturizing, extremely comfortable on lips. Highly pigmented
My experience with the product:
Naughty Nude is a beautiful nude lipstick with a hint of pink. I feel it’s the kind of perfect nude that would look good on anyone. I like it mostly for office wear.The texture is creamy matte and since it’s semi matte, it’s extremely comfortable on lips. It keeps my lips moisturized despite being under the ‘So Matte!’ category.Most matte lipsticks dry out lips, but this one doesn’t. You may feel like it has satin finish when you freshly apply the  product on your lips, but after half an hour or so you would notice it looks proper matte, yet super soft on lips. The colour payoff is great and it stays up to 4-5  hours straight.
Will I buy it again?
What’s your favourite shade from Nykaa Matte lipstick range, let me know in the comment below.
