Summers are at their full intensity these days and I am drinking Ruh-afza(my summer love) as I write this new blog post. No matter how scorching or bursting summers get they still make it to be my favourite season of the year. I may sound weird but yes I am a summer-season-lover, those shakes, fruit punches and mojitos are something I go gaga over. When winters begin I start counting on days to calculate how many more days I have to bear them. 😀
Enough of babbling regarding my summer-love, let’s get back on the review track. Today’s post is going to be on a product by the brand FUSCHIA which I introduced “here” few days back. It’s a day cream with the name- Garden Lavender day cream with SPF 15, read on to more about it-
Price- INR 525/- for 50gms
About- Infused with 100% vegetarian & natural ingredients which rejuvenate & keep your skin supple, light & radiant. Lavender (lavandula angustifolia) oil fights acne & prevents fine lines on skin. SPF 15 provides UVA & UVB protection. Free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum base, artificial tints & synthetic perfumes. Day cream contains moisturizing elements that keeps your skin hydrated and nourished. You in turn are rewarded with a soft and supple skin. Pollution and exposure to the rays of the sun often extracts the natural moisturizing elements of the skin. As a result you are left with dry and lifeless looking skin. For a healthy and refreshing look choose Fuschia – Garden Lavender Day Cream with SPF 15. This comes with optimum quantity of PH value that helps to maintain your skin’s PH levels. Fuschia day cream is also an excellent base for makeup.
Usage tips- It is best to apply day cream on well cleansed skin, preferably after a bath. Apply the day cream on your face and neck with the help of gentle circular motions.
My take on Fuschia Garden Lavender day cream-
Fuschia Lavender day cream comes in a jar which is square in shape. The sticker on the jar only states the name and quantity, so for price, ingredients and directions we have to refer to the small chits that come with it. The color of the cream is off-white, and the fragrance is very pleasant, lavender fragrance can easily be identified however there are some other fragrances over-powering it. I have dry skin and I am using this day-cream regularly since last 10-11 days on a gently cleansed face and I must say this does the job very well. The texture of the cream is very light and it spreads easily, only a small sized amount is good enough to suffice for face and neck.
This cream does have good moisturizing properties; it gets absorbed in skin quickly and makes me sweat a bit right after application but after sometime all I get is a well moisturized skin that is soft and supple. Like for makeup, we need to moisturize our skin well before going ahead with any layers of foundation, this cream goes very effective in maintaining the moisture level, and also contains SPF 15 to protect skin from sun-tan. I am not sure about this being equally fair on oil-skinned people.
What I like about Fuschia Garden Lavender day cream –
- Compact jar.
- Moisturizes well.
- Contains SPF15
- SLS and Paraben free.
- Doesn’t feel heavy and greasy.
- 100% vegetarian, Contains Natural ingredients.
- Contains no artificial tint and fragrance.
- A good base for makeup.
What I don’t like about Fuschia Garden Lavender day cream –
- The packaging and quality of jar doesn’t look like 525 bucks.
- I wish all info was printed on the jar itself as those small chits are something one can’t preserve for long.
- Fragrance might be strong for sensitive noses.
*Product sent by brand for consideration, however my review is unbiased.
Overall, it’s a good herbal day-cream for regular usage infused with 100% vegetarian ingredients. Can be used under makeup as a moisturizing base, and is good for summers too as it contains SPF15.
