Neutrogena | Fine Fairness Cleanser

1 comment

Hi lovelies,

So, reverting back to Neutrogena, I picked Fine Fairness Cleanser recently. This cleanser is part of the Neutrogena's Fine Fairness Range created to assure women of fair and radiant skin that lasts. I've had enough of the tan I got recently while driving my car daily to and back from work. I've always had great experience with Neutrogena products in the past. These have always been my go-to products. I've recently reviewed Neutrogena's Deep Clean Gentle Scrub and had amazing results with this product. Hence, the motivation to invest into a few more quality skin care products.

Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser
What Neutrogena says..
"..Fine Fairness® works because of Neutrogena Healthy White Complex. This technology is composed of nature's activities - Essential Soy, stabilized Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 and Portaluca - and serves as the foundation of Fine Fairness®..."

Essential Soy is a patented soy extract that limits transfer of melanin to keratinocytes (outermost layer of skin) in order to achieve fair and clear skin.

Stabilized Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that blocks free radicalls, and reduces Tyrosinase, an essential enzyme in melanin formation. This stable form of Vitamin C ensures a prolonged release for a long-lasting healthy glow. 

Vitamin B3 enhances skin renewal and turnover.

Portulaca soothes inflammation to reduce pigmentation that is often triggered by inflammation. 

Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser comes in a squeeze-tube container. The cleanser has a soft, rich and creamy texture with mild fragrance. I squeeze a small amount on my palm and work it all over my face and neck. It feels soft and gentle on the skin and gently lifts dirt and excessive oil from the skin. I badly need this treatment these days since by skin is really acting up due to the hot and humid weather. After every wash I feel my skin has rejuvenated with no oil residue but without stripping skin of its natural moisture. The cleanser also lifts the skin dulling dead cells leaving my skin feeling radiant. Not only this, the ingredients explained about like Vitamin C and Essential Soy along with proven skin lighters help skin with that desired fair glow.

The Body Shop | Mini Haul


Hi lovelies,

Upon my recent stopover at The Body Shop I picked two things absolutely randomly. I tried to get out of my comfort zone and 'safe' shades to try out something new. This included a new lipstick shade I usually do not prefer and a cheek shade I want to try out as a 'bronzer' (yep!).

Starting off with Color Crush Lipstick in the shade 140 Make My Heart Gleam, it comes in a nice plastic packaging. The cap of these Color Crush lipsticks reflect the color category of the shade inside, so it's either pink, orange or mauve. Ever since I started experimenting with orange shades in lipsticks I have found really beautiful shades that look as natural on my skin tone as some pink shades too. One of my recent favorites is from the same Color Crush lipstick range in the shade 105 Coral Cutie.

140 Make My Heart Gleam is a beautiful peachy shade with strong range undertones. It is loaded with tons of gold glitter and shimmery finish. It is incredibly pigmented so I do not intend to use it alone as a lipstick shade. When I bought it, the idea was to either blend it with another lipstick shade or to use a bit of it on top of the main lipstick for a glamours look, perfect for evenings. I think it was a good choice, the texture is soft, creamy and quite moisturizing. It has a hint of scent which is I find really pleasant. Wear time of lipsticks usually vary from person to person but I personally feel the shade starts to fade in 3 hours leaving behind the gold shimmer.

Since - to date I haven't been able to figure out how to contour your cheeks with a bronzer without ending up with tons of it all over your face - I still haven't given up. This time my approach is to go for a matte shade (any - eye shadow, blusher etc) in a light brown shade and use it with my blusher to create the look. For this I chose All-In-One Cheek Color in 09 Truffle. Since, in this case as well, I have used two blusher shades from the same range 05 Bubblegum and 04 Marshmellow. I've had great experience with both these shades therefore trying 09 Truffle in terms of consistency and matte was easy. 

09 Truffle is a light brown shade with neutral under tones and matte finish. Its supposed to be used as blusher but I think it would work great as a contour shade. I love the shade and the fact that its buildable without the risk of over-going it which works great for me! I also absolutely love how the shade stays its original color and gives that natural look rather than turning into orange-ish or dark brown. That for me (or anyone) is a makeup disaster!

I am experimenting with both the products and cant speak enough of the product quality. Do let me know if you have used any of these two products from The Body Shop or from the same range.

How do you wear your bronzer and glitter lipstick?
