Hello my friends,
Watching those beautiful pictures of various 'avatars' of gods & goddesses in a book of mine, i was so surprised that on one hand we worship 'Kali'-means 'the black one' symbolizes empowerment in our culture while on the other hand how women in India is differentiated for their skin color, so helpless, still struggling for empowerment. Those rapes, honor killings, dowry killings, female infanticide, domestic violence against women is just another news everyday...compels me to think how I or we as bloggers can help? This needs a deep thought & introspection.
You all must be thinking what's this...its not only beautiful things but some ugly brutal facts do occupy our mind.
Anyways this post is not about women empowerment.
i was trying this sample of Garnier Fair Miracle...why 'Fair', its so 'unfair'!!! Inherited with such characteristic & unique skin tone & features imparting you an identity amidst the crowd is not appreciated. Why do we need tag of being fair? So you might have understood..i do not follow this 'unfair' race. To me flawless skin matters not being...fair. Anyways i was testing this sample of Garnier Fair Miracle along with some other lying in my stash- samples from Aroma Magic.
1. Garnier Fair Miracle-
Company claims this to be a fairness cream with nourishment of cream and mattifying effect of Talc. its claims to have Vitamin B3, perlite, UV Filters & Talcum Powder.
I tried 1 out of 2 sachets of this cream sample.
it is an opaque white paste or emulsion kind in texture. Spreads easily and a small amount is sufficient (pea size) for a single application. This 5 gms sachet lasts till a week or so. Also it has mild floral fragrance.
it says 'Touch, Feel & See the difference'.
Touch- Velvety soft & smooth skin on touch- yes smooth effect but velvetty soft, maybe it requires consistent long term application.
Feel- skin feels fresh, moisturized & clean- yes it works for 7-8 hours keeps you fresh, moisturized & oil free
See- Fair & Glowing skin- yes imparts a healthy glow.
But it lacks Sunscreen properties which is a must for any day cream or you need to put an another layer of sunscreen before this cream.
Did you find anywhere- i got fairer!!!!!
So overall a nice cream worth trying. its available at retail counters at 15 gms & 40 gms tube packs priced at 45 INR & 99 INR resp. Price seems OK for the results claimed.
2. Aroma Magic White Tea and Chamomile Face Wash-
i got 2 sachets of 3.5 ml each which lasted for 2 weeks. it is light blue, little thick with green protein beads. its not creamy and very light, spreads easily and cleans the face well. Claims to have white tea and chamomile extracts for pollution defense, also reported to be good for oily skin. it does not dry or makes your skin stretchy. Mild fragrance.
Good one for all skin types.
it is also available in market at all retail counters and also online. Available in 50 ml and 100ml tubes priced at 75 INR & 135 INR resp. you may also purchase Aroma Magic Face Wash from their site online here
3. Aroma Magic Strawberry Face Wash-
Again all skin type face wash which is pink in color & quite runny in texture. it has a lovely strawberry fragrance which i absolutely loved. it effectively cleans the face without any drying. Also very small quantity is required so 2 sachets of 3.5 ml lasted for 2 weeks for me.
i would prefer this over previous one.
it is also available in market at all retail counters and also online. Available in 100ml attractive tube priced at 115 INR. you may also purchase Aroma Magic Face Wash from their site online here
4. Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal pack-
Thick black paste with earthy fragrance and spreads really well. i had 2 sachets of 8 gms which lasted long (can say each for 4-5 applications). Enriched with active charcoal and Himalayan clay but could not find any of the lightening, brigtening, exfoliating effects as claimed. it was OK for me.
it is also available in market at all retail counters and also online. Available in 100ml attractive tube priced at 380 INR.
