Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Cream! Yay or Nay !

I know the real struggle to get rid of Eczema as there is no permanent cure for it (until now) but can manage to keep it at bay by maintaining the skincare routine and providing the required hydration which can help to win the long term race. It is indeed a crucial task especially for kids who get affected the most by Eczema. We all want best of best for our children, no matter what it takes. On top of it, skin issues make us more worried as we don’t want to put anything on their skin without having trust in what we are using.

When my daughter was a baby and about 6 months old or so, I started noticing very dry patches on her hand, tummy and mostly near folds on legs and it was itchy too….Initially, I thought it may be a result of the wrong body wash or probably some rash. But when I contacted her Pediatrician, she told me about Eczema. Then the next thing I did, I googled it. It was a whole new chapter for me!!!

Her pediatrician recommended a prescription-strength cream and suggested a couple of OTC ointments. So our first choice was Aquaphore which comes in a jar and has tons of good reviews. It is a multipurpose ointment but mainly used for diaper rash. It is a good one but was not for my baby. We end up using a few more other products for Eczema but no satisfying outcome.

Being parents, we were actually a little bit confused and was dwelling on the thought of “may or may not be” but finally gathered some courage to buy it. Apparently, it turned out to be a must-have cream for my daughter. So, Let’s see what is so special about it!

Its active ingredient is Oatmeal. It is the superfood for the skin and body as well. It works as a cooling agent on dry /irritated skin or inflamed skin. It has a perfect balance of pH and so helps to provide a sufficient amount of moisture to the skin. It reduces the itching, acts as a barrier and protects eczema-prone skin from outside weather. On the company website it says:- 

  • With soothing natural Colloidal Oatmeal and dimethicone
  • Temporarily protects and helps relieve minor skin irritation and itching
  • Fragrance-free and dye-free
  • Paraben-free and phthalate-free
  • Temporarily protects and helps relieve minor skin irritation and itching due to Eczema and Rashes

The results are very surprising. I mean, it is one of the OTC creams which really works as a good juju!!!!. I must mention here that my daughter is now 4years old and I still use this Aveeno Baby eczema cream for her. No more replacement. This is a holy product for my girl. This one has proved “The one”, indeed true to its promise.

Active Ingredient: Colloidal Oatmeal 1% (skin protectant)

Inactive Ingredients: Water, glycerin, panthenol, distearyldimonium chloride, petrolatum, isopropyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, avena sativa (oat) kernel oil, steareth-20, benzalkonium chloride, ceramide NP, sodium chloride, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract.

Well, I am going to be a regular customer of AVEENO Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream and would recommend to all my friends and family to try it. Final verdict – Yay !!!!!

Face Scrubs – Save or Splurge! St.Ives vs Clinique!

Mesmerizing brand advertisement with fully edited model’s face by skillful graphics designer….lol !!! very first question we ask ourselves, save or splurge? Big logos & fancy keywords look so promising that we almost convince ourselves to make a purchase. Having said that,it’s all about hit or miss!

Today, I picked up a face scrub to review. A very simple product & necessary step to complete our skincare routine. Just to let you know that I have combination skin with oily T-zone and usually not very sensitive.

Start from left Clinique pep-start exfoliating cleanser and St.Ives oatmeal scrub & mask

St. Ives Smooth Oatmeal Scrub & Mask 

Oatmeal is a self-explanatory word. Instantly indicates a very soothing and calming ingredient for the skin. It is such great a gentle exfoliating scrub available in the market, efficiently removes all the dirt & residual grime after removing makeup or cleansing face. I am so obsessed with this one and do not want to go for any other scrubs. It contains a very tiny and tender walnut shell granules, feels so soft yet strong enough to buff away dead skin cells. The best part is, you can use it as a mask as well to add on extra care towards your beauty goals. I prefer to use it on the cleansed face leaving some dampness to it then massaging it in a circular motion for a minute or so.

  • Best natural exfoliating scrub for all skin types. It instantly provides softness and nourishment after first use. Ready to see your healthy & glowing face with every wash. Does not dry your skin at all.
  • Just need a dime size to scrub & massage the face. It’s a paraben-free & oil-free. Non-comedogenic.
  • It is 2-in-1 oatmeal scrub and mask which makes it extraordinary. The results are stunning. Use it 2 to 3 times a week depending upon your skin type.
  • It is unscented so no to worry about it.
  • Its retail price varies between $4.50 to $6.00 (US Dollars).
  • It is recommendable, so affordable, and must try scrub. Giving it 5 stars for its outstanding work and it’s a cruelty-free.

Clinique Pep-Start™ 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

Here we go!!!! Clinique is a very well known brand for all of us. I have always loved their products especially their moisture surge skincare line. I just love it. I am enchanted by them.

Clinique 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser is a gel cleanser and a scrub mixed together. Gel gets its job done of cleansing the face efficiently with the help of small exfoliating granules. It is a very powerful and time-saving formula, especially when running short of time. But my take on this product is little deviated comparing to what it is explained on the clinique website.

  • It is 2-in-1 exfoliating cleanser and exfoliator.
  • Just need a small amount of product, lather it up and massage onto damp skin. The recipe is great enough to take away dirt, impurities, and dead skin cells.
  • Apart from giving a nice glow, the formula is too drying as if it has sucked every bit of oil out of your face. It leaves skin with stretchy feeling and craves for moisturizer.
  • Not at all recommendable for dry skin types.
  • Red alert for a group of sensitive people as it tends to leave dry patches and can cause irritation.
  • Its retails price is $19.50 (US Dollars)
  • Results are not satisfying (at least in my case) and wish Clinique change the formula in the future so giving it 3 Stars.

GINZING Refreshing Eye Cream To Brighten And Depuff

Hello my beautiful friends !

And they say “Love is when you look into someone’s eyes and see everything you need” but what if eye are dull, dry and puffy with unwanted dark circles …He he he !!!! no more laughs..It was said in jest so don’t get serious !!!!!!. Anyway, this is so true our eyes are very important part of our body yet sometimes we ignore it. In fact I started taking care of it just couple of years ago. Oh! I was so insane and I definitely owe an apology to my eyes!!!!

Just like our skin , eyes also need a continuous supply of hydration and so they invented an eye creams.This post is dedicated to all my friends who’re really searching of good eye food !!!!This post is not affiliated..and the product I am going to review is my favorite one!!!.

Origins Ginzing refreshing eye cream to brighten and depuff. A very gentle cream for eyes yet an effective recipe to fight against dullness, under eye bags, puffiness and dark circles & it is Pricey too. At first I was little skeptical and did not want to add new member to my skin care routine as I was indeed trying to use all the free eye cream samples (Yes! trial size..lol!!!!) I received with my online orders. Oh wait ! now I remember I have also tried one from Sephora brand n it was ok!ok! though. Now let’s focus on our todays review.

So what I love about this product? just after first application one can see a visible difference. Consistency of the cream is so beautiful and light weight no more stretchy feeling no irritation except when try to get close to eyes. It is an excellent eye tonic for all skin types. Very balanced cream having richness of caffeine will make your eyes more awake n helps to regain a healthy look after a few application.A little goes a long way so not to worry at all. I apply twice a day or as needed and I don’t have any reason to dislike it. It does its job very well to get rid of eye bags or puffiness instantly. Just FYI i have a combination skin and also use it under my eye makeup yet no complaints. But girls with very oily skin tone might want to give it a second thought…Not so sure if it will get its job done with under eye makeup. Sensitive girls,I would recommend to check it personally in the store by applying a tester to back of your hand just to figure out its loyalty towards you (if possible avoid it now due to COVID-19).

I don’t have prominent dark circles around eyes as such but I have very tiny white patches under my eyes, even I am not sure about it. Since, I have started using it one can barely notice it. I am so happy & love it to the moon. This is it, my quest for a perfect eye cream has ended, at least for now…

The retail price of the cream is $32 (US Dollar) and did not buy it for the full price…A very big round of applause to me girls ……. It was on sale @ultabeauty store at discounted price 50% off. Yes !!!! damn good deal. Besides, not so sure if it works as an anti-aging cream so that’s the reason I am giving it 4.5 stars.

Clinique Even Better Clinical Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter

Hey guys !

I am going to review Clinique even better dark spot corrector today. I am sure there are many people out there who really want to buy this one but not sure about this product if it is really worth the hype or as advertised by the company itself. So not to worry, I am definitely going to take some burden off your shoulders.

Relax, take a deep breath and read !

Even Better Clinical™ Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter claims on Clinique website that ” It helps visibly correct discoloration and acne scars, while interrupting future dark spots by 39% reduction in dark spots and acne scars in 12 weeks”. If you need more information I would suggest please check company website.

CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical™ Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter

My take on this products. I use it twice a day follow with moisturizer and if I am going out then sunscreen is imperative like it is mentioned in website . Little over a month ago I started using dark spot corrector and since then I am observing my skin tone. The change is Positive, rather saying skin tone I would say the pigmentation and acne scars are getting lighter. Skin looks more awaken , dark spots on my nose are gradually fading. Now can’t comment on “interrupting future dark spots” it’s kind of difficult to keep track on upcoming dark spots. However, I feel its working on my skin & taking a good care of my old skin issues by providing nourishment it needs. on top of it , it has a Salicylic acid which helps to fight against acne ,cyst etc which is super cool !

Let’s talk about the cons. The texture of the serum could have been better , being said that I need at least two and a half pumps of serum to apply and it’s a white gel based serum . I personally feel application of the gel is not as smooth as expected and that’s probably because I have been using Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II for so long that accepting new one seems challenging for me. But I still think that there is scope of development in formulation. I hope they will work on it.

You can see the texture of the serum

There is something more important I want to talk about, just by using dark spot corrector alone I don’t think I can get that flawless skin but maintaining a regular routine which includes cleansing,Toning & Moisturizing so that skin absorbs the products better and gives a very miraculous result.

Last but not least if you think you have a very sensitive skin then I would recommend you to know company’s return policy 😉 . He he he ! don’t mind but my skin is also sensitive to few products where I see thousands of people reviewed it with 5 star so yes make sure money does not go to waste.

Finally , so far I am satisfied and a happy customer of Clinique dark spot corrector. Very soon I will be uploading my pictures showing before/after effect so yes I am on it. Giving it a 4.5 starts and its price is $52.50 (US Dollar). This is for now but I will be back soon with more reviews. Thanks for stopping by & reading my page.
