Himalaya Herbals: Revitalizing Night Cream and Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream

Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if after all these months you’d like to meet…

This song at the moment sound perfect as I return to dear blog after so many months, so late but not too late(I hope).

And without wasting much time in wondering lets get straight to the good things I have to talk about Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream and a few things about Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream.

Current skin concerns: Dry, pimples and a bit of patchy

Last few months I’ve ignored the skin care, so when the results started showing in form of pimples on face I had to do something. I started using Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Face Wash which is known for preventing pimples, pimples reduced but it made my dry skin very dry. So I needed some moisturisers at night, this is when I first got Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream, which from the first night( 😉 ) made a big impression.

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream doesn’t make big claims, it would Renews skin cells, Hydrates skin, Repairs daily damage; simple daily skin needs, which is what I was looking for. Cream is very light, very moisturising and doesn’t make skin oily, smells of flowers but not too strong(wish Himalaya made scent free products). Very little amount is required to cover full face, and I wake up with soft skin in morning. For my extra dry skin this night cream worked so well that I used it in day also(I hope it is not illegal to use night cream in day :P), as it was working so well I thought let’s try the day cream from same range.

Himalaya’s Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream which claims to Hydrates skin, Lightens skin tone, Clears complexion; now I’m only interested in ‘Hydrates skin’ part cause we all know nothing can change the color of your skin :D. I’ve been using it for a week, can really say that day cream is not as awesome as night cream. Again very little amount of cream is needed to work full face, to me it smells a bit of fuller’s earth and looks also of same colour(though it is not present as per ingredients list). The only issue with day cream is when I go out my face starts to sweat and looks oily, which makes it good only for indoor and winters. Oh the day cream also has UV protection, no no not SPF but breakthrough herbal sunblock CINNABLOC™, can’t say if this really works against sun.

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream costs 200 Rs. for 50 grms and Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream 250 Rs. for 50 grms and are easily available at stores and online. Added advantage, both creams are alcohol and parabens free, also did you Himalaya Herbals is cruelty free, yay!

Have you tried any of the face creams from Himalaya Herbals, which is your favorite?

Tinted Moisturizer – DIY

My beauty notes are going to be super quick, which contain super quick recipe for my own personalized tinted moisturizer!

Why would I need to make my own tinted moisturizer, here are few(there are many but mainly two) reasons:

  1. Blessed with super dry skin; hence no BB cream, tinted moisturizers ever worked for me alone, I always had to layer with a heavy moisturizer first
  2. My heavy coverage foundation is nearing it’s best before date

See how difficult life is? Hence I came up with a quick, easy, everyday tinted moisturizer. What you will need? 1. your favorite moisturizer and 2. your favorite heavy coverage foundation(liquid). My current moisturizer is Pond’s Silk Cream into which I will mix L’Oreal Paris Infallible Liquid Foundation. You can work out the proportion of two ingredients according to the need; I mix one drop of foundation to the amount of moisturizer which will be enough to cover my face and neck.

DIY Tinted Moisturizer

Mix two moisturizer and foundation on back of your palm with finger and apply. No layering, no blending, no worries of going overboard on normal work days. It is better to mix on the go, whenever you require to put it on, not needed to be mixed and stored in much quantity. The coverage can be changed from light to medium by increasing the amount of foundation and you will have your own personalized tinted moisturizer!

Would you dare to try this DIY? I would love to hear your experiments to discover your perfect tinted moisturizer.

Ciao!
