Age Range: 25-34

Location: Delhi

Skin Type/Texture: Combination skin: oily T-zone and dry cheeks

Usage Duration: 1-3 months

When do you use it?: In the morning, daily

Experience: I just loved the formula and what it does for the skin. Prepares your skin by increasing its absorbency powers. I feel my skin is smoother and radiant after applying. 

  • The only thing I did not like is that it has total water-like consistency, I wish it would come in spray sort of packaging for better application and makes life easy.
  • It should suit all skin types. People with acne-prone skin can also use it because of the soothing and calming properties (it doesn’t feel heavy at all on the skin).
  • This is an all in one skincare product you can use it as a serum and moisturizer. 



✨Main Ingredients:-

🔹Salicylic Acid- helps refine pores and improves skin texture. It also reduces sebum production on the skin which helps reduce acne.

🔹Centella Asiatica- it improves skin elasticity, calms any inflammation, hydrates the skin and also helps in hyperpigmentation. 

✨How to use:- (after cleansing and toning)

  1. Take 4-5 drops on your palm.
  2. Gently dab between palms(do not rub).
  3. Gently tap all your face. 

❌ Don’t rub it excessively on your palms and do not use cotton pads to apply it.


22ml- INR 250

65ml- INR 799

130ml- INR 1050

✨Rating:- 4/5👍🏻

Location: Humid

Skin Type/Texture: I have combination skin: oily T-zone and dry cheeks and I have sensitive skin: gets easily red and irritated

Usage Duration: More than 12 months

When do you use it?: In the morning, daily

Experience: This product is my ABSOLUTE STAPLE! I started using it in March 2020 and haven’t stopped since. The way it feels on the skin is so so good. It is lightly fragranced, which I don’t mind at all. 

How to use the product?

1) Wash your face with a cleanser (facewash).

2) Take 3-4 drops on your palm and gently tap on your face evenly.

What it does?

  • It has a watery texture that boosts moisture retention and is ultra-lightweight
  • It penetrates up to 10 layers of your skin
  • Has Salicylic acid that brightens, exfoliates and refines pores & skin texture.
  • Gives a radiant, smooth, plump finish to the skin.
  • Leaves skin Hydrated and Refreshed.
  • Available in 3 sizes: 22ml (250/-), 65ml (799/-) & 130ml (1400/-)
  • Can be used as a serum and can also be used for moisturizing for people with combination/oily skin.

This has been a product that I highly recommend to anyone who asks me about it. It suits all skin types and is suitable to use in all seasons. Does not make the skin greasy at all and works excellent on it as well (no moisturiser required after it, if you don’t want to layer products).

Age Range: 18-24

Location: Srinagar, Kashmir

Skin Type/Texture: I have combination skin: oily T-zone and dry cheeks

Usage Duration: 6-12 months

When do you use it?: Morning and night

Days before my YouTube was full with the advertisement of this product by L’oreal and the beauty bloggers in my feed hyped this product to no ends.

Soon after my heart thought of giving it a try.


It has 3 sizes. I ordered the smallest one just to see how much it will go ahead. For the initial 2-3 days it was okayish but I kept on applying it 2 times a day morning and evening soon after my toner. It gave my face such radiance and a natural glow I was surprised.

It instantly brightens up the face and it’s truly visible. It has a lightweight texture and it is suitable for acne-prone skin as well.

It contains CENTELLA ASIATICA known for its healing power to deeply repair, boost skin elasticity and smooth out lines and wrinkles.

It also contains SALICYLIC ACID  which mildly exfoliates to help refine pores and skin texture and accelerates skin renewal.

*One of its active ingredients is benzyl alcohol which acts as a preservative for most of our cosmetic products, something which you may want on your skin but not in your bloodstream*

The smallest size is 22ml and it comes in a plastic bottle, the other 2 are glass bottles. It’s water-based, has a little amount of fragrance but not that strong just a touch of fragrance.

How to use:

  • Use day and night. Pour 3-4 drops and pat gently on the skin until fully absorbed.
  •  Do not rub between your hands or use cotton.
  • One 22ml bottle will go for a month.
