Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Review

Hello Ladies,

Hope you are doing excellent!! I am going to share my experience on Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in the Shade Beige 1. I have heard a lot about this Brand but never ever used any creams until yesterday. I recently came to know about a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant near to my place. She insisted me to try this Tinted Moisturizer and let’s see what I experienced after going through the product.

What are the company claims?

Get three fabulous benefits in one: sheer, lightweight colors; oil-free moisturization that lasts up to 10 hours; and UVA/UVB protection. Wear all day when a more casual, natural look is desired or on days when the usual beauty routine needs to be streamlined.
·         Creates a natural, casual look.
·         Suitable for all skin types.
·         Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy.
·         Fragrance- and oil-free.
·         Non-comedogenic.
Application Tips
Apply every morning or wear all day when a more casual, natural look is desired or on days when the usual beauty routine needs to be streamlined.
How It Works
Provides three benefits in one – sheer color, oil-free moisturization and UVA/UVB protection.

Key Ingredients

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract is an antioxidant known as a free-radical scavenger. This ingredient is included in products to help protect the skin from the effects of free radicals generated by the environment.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract is a soothing agent known for its calming properties. As a moisturizer/hydrator, it helps condition and smooth the skin by adding, attracting or retaining moisture.

Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Zinc Oxide (2.4%) and Oxybenzone (1.75%) are UVA and UVB sunscreens which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined to be both safe and effective, within certain concentrations, in protecting the skin from ultraviolet light.

Price : 9 Rials / 18 $ for 43 ML (Approx 1000 Rs)
Active Ingredients:
Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Zinc Oxide (2.4%), Oxybenzone (1.75%) . Other Ingredients: Water, Isododecane, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Betaine, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethicone PEG-7 Phosphate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer , Squalane, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Methylparaben, Ceteareth-20, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, DMDM Hydantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, PEG-4 Laurate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Polysorbate 60, Butylene Glycol, Sorbitan Isostearate, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Propylparaben, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides
My Opinion on the Product.

The formula is Oil-Free, Non greasy, Light weighted and has a SPF 20, Lot of shades available i.e Ivory 1
Ivory 2,Beige 1,Beige2,Bronze 1,Bronze 2 .
Mine is Beige 1 because it just exactly matches my skin color, ivory would be too light and bronze would have been too dark for me. I ordered the Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 20 from a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. It does absorbs well and gives a glow to my skin not oily but a healthy glow, can be seen in the pics below. This product also provides UVB & UVA protection, plus point is it is suitable for all the skin types. It has a buttery texture, and very runny formula. So it blends really well . It also contains some Aloe Extract which doesn’t cause any irritation because aloe is good for skin. The Lasting Power is super awesome for more than 8 Hours. It doesn’t have any Fragrance. It has a Long Tip easy to remove the product. The Packaging is Quite Simple with a Pinkish Cream Tube and a Box. The packaging and Looks are very similar to Garnier BB Cream (Review Here).

It Gives me a Medium to Full coverage, I really don’t need any foundation over this, also it does lessens  your dark circles , so people who have intense dark circles need to apply a Concealer over it. 

My Likes:
·         Shows up very natural skin, doesn’t feel like applied something on the face.
·         Contains SPF 20 (although it cannot give you a complete protection from the Sun but not bad )
·         Available in 6 Shades (Atleast more than Garnier)
·         Approved by US FDA.
·         Blends well, Non Greasy, Fragrance Free
·         Gives me a glow on the skin.
·         Travel Friendly
My Dislikes:
·         Expensive
·         Availability Issue
·         Tested on Animals
LBA Rating : 4/5
Would I recommend: Yes please try it once as my experience was very good.

Garnier Skin Naturals Light Oil Control Fairness Cream Review

Hello Ladies,

Today is a Sunday, for some it is a lazy Day and for some of you guys it’s a fun day, but for me it’s a working day here in Oman, anyways let’s get to the Subject, In Middle East Countries i.e UAE, OMAN, QATAR etc there are only two seasons Summers and Winters, sometimes we do get rain showers in Winters but most of the time it is Real Hot here, so the products which we get here are totally depending on the weather conditions.

I am today going to give you a very good example of a Product which I used earlier when I was in India and today when I am here in Oman. It is Garnier Skin Naturals Light Oil Control Fairness Cream.

Nivea Gentle Eye Make Up Remover Review

Hello Readers,

How are you all doing?? Today I am sharing my thoughts on Nivea Makeup Removers. Last week I had bought two of these products from Nivea, apart from Body Lotion’s, Creams & Deo’s I have never ever tried its Make-Up Remover, I was actually the follower of MNY Makeup Remover and I had gone to get that but unfortunately it was not available in the store and luckily I got to use this fab product from Nivea.
It was available in 2 Variants

1.    Nivea Gentle Eye Make Up Remover
2.    Nivea Double Effect Eye Make Up Remover

Today I am reviewing the first one Nivea Gentle Eye Make Up Remover 

Let’s see what company claims about it:

Nivea Gentle Eye Make Up Remover has been carefully formulated by the Nivea Laboratories to gently yet thoroughly remove eye make-up without stinging or irritating the delicate eye area. The light, non-greasy lotion with ProVitamin B5 allows you to reapply your make-up immediately if desired.
* Oil free;
* Opthalmologically tested, so suitable for use on the delicate eye contour area;
* Dermatologically approved

Price: 2.5 Rials (Approx 350-400 Rs) for 125 ML (Made in Germany)

How to Apply:

Shake well before usage. Apply to a cotton pad and gently cleanse the eye area from the inner to the outer side of the eyes. No rubbing needed. Also suitable for contact lenses wearers.

My Opinion on the Nivea Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:

The Nivea Gentle Eye Makeup Remover comes in a matte light blue bottle, the formula is Oil Free and it is transparent, watery texture, very light weighted and it does removes washable eye shadows and mascara’s. This one is not good on waterproof cosmetics, I tried on my Waterproof MNY Eyeliner but even after 3-4 swipes it wasn’t removed completely. It is good for those who are not using much of waterproof cosmetics. It has a mild fragrance of a Body Lotion.

  • Its Light Weighted, Oil free
  • Comes in a good quantity
  • Easily Available
  • Good for Sensitive Eyes

In the above pic i have used Washable Makeup and Not Waterproof
  • Not efficient for water proof or long lasting makeup
  • Expensive 

LBA Rating: 3/5
