"Lakme 9 to 5 Foundation Review"

Hi Everybody!!!!

From November to say July/August people in our country are busy attending functions especially marriage.. So you have many marriages to attend and you are scared of applying make up for every function.. This summer makes you sweat a lot and that`s the reason we use make up to look best or say at-least to look fresh isn`t it ??? So which foundation is good this summer and will give us what we demand? Lets see.....

Price: 530 INR

Lakme 9 to 5 foundation

Lakme 9 to 5 foundation

Lakme 9 to 5 foundation
Ingredients:  List is not given...:(

What Product Claims:

A high performance foundation that keeps you looking flawless through the day. The long lasting finish formula does not smudge or streak.. It leaves skin feeling comfortable and supple for hours.....Available in 3 shades

  • Shell - For dark to tan complexions
  • Pearl- For dusky to wheatish complexion
  • Marble- Wheatish to light/ fair complexion

My View:

I had reservation about using make up in summer as my face sweats a lot..Since the situation demanded i look my best , i thought i must give a try. It is aqua based/ water based foundation, not creamy.. Blends well with the skin and gives a matte finish... If you want a dewy finish it is not the right one for you. It gives great coverage and does exactly what it claims.. It made me look fresh even after 6 hrs... :) It lasts long and it can be used by people with sensitive skin...It did not cause any skin irritation..Though company claims that it can be used daily, i suggest not to use it daily, instead try some BB/CC creams..It is available in 3 shades ie shell, pearl, marble.. I used the marble shade as i though it will suit me...So girls look you best with this foundation....


  1. Long lasting power
  2. Matte finish
  3. Does not smudge
  4. Powder /touch up not required
  5. Great coverage for uneven complexion
  6. Makes you look and feel fresh
  7. Convenient pump tube for use

  9. Did not cause skin problems


  1. Does not give dewy finish
  2. Price is more for small quantity

Overall Rating:

I would give it 4/5 for the great coverage and the lasting power..Great consistency and does not make skin oily...I would recommend everyone to give it at-least 1 try...

Thanks for reading.....

"Biotique- Bio Sandalwood Face & Body Sun Lotion Review"

Hi All!!!

Its Summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( And its getting worst...... Biotique is a brand which is listening to its customers and that`s really very nice.. In summer getting out without sunscreen lotion is a very bad idea... Markets are flooded with so many sunscreen lotion and cream, we often get confused which to buy.. Like me you too might be thinking which sunscreen will suit and which is the best for my skin and all that... Especially if you have a sensitive skin... Today let us check what biotique has to offer us...

Price : 99 INR for 50ml

Biotique-Bio Sandalwood


Safed Chandan (Santalum album), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Nag kesar (Mesua ferrea), Ankurit gehun (Triticum vulgare), Madhu (Honey), Arjun (Terminalia arjuna), Rakt chandan (Pterocarpus santalinus), Lodhra (Symplocos racemosa), Mom (Bees wax), Sunflower oil, Purified himalayan water Q.S.

What Product Claims:

Use before sun exposure. Reapply as needed after swimming or perspiring activities. Helps reduce the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects of sun..Contains SPF 75.. Also mentioned on pack that it suits all skin types...

My Views:

The consistence is not too runny nor thick.. Smells like sandalwood and a bit like clove...Its very mild smelling lotion.. On the pack they have not mentioned whether it helps reducing sun tan which is actually what a sunscreen is supposed to do...I personally felt the lotion feels sticky on skin.. I have combination skin type. Though it makes skin super soft which i liked...:) Even after using this my skin got tanned...:(


  1. Mild fragrance
  2. Makes skin supple, soft, elastic
  3. Comes in a tube not in tub...:)
  4. No harm to skin.
  5. You wont break out..

  1. The lotion is very sticky
  2. Did not help protect from sun tanning...
  3. Should concentrate more on protecting skin from tanning.
  4. Price is more for small quantity..

Overall Ratings: 2.5/5
