I was sent this around four weeks back and I have been using this for the last twenty one days. The concept is quite new to me and I am using such a product for the first time.
The look: A creamy white that is moderately thick in consistency
The smell: Very fresh and lingers on for the whole day.
My take : This has to be used after usage of the body wash. It has to be applied all over the body and left on for two minutes, then washed off. This is supposed to complete the moisturizing phase also. The skin feels hydrated and soft all round the day with a mild lingering smell. The effect lasts for the whole day. Also, the ingredient list is devoid of artificial colors and silicones.
Overall Highly recommended ! It is easy to use and keeps up the moisturizing effect.
- Easy to use
- Smells good
- Lingering Smell
- Hydrates and moisturizes
- The effect lasts the whole day
- No harmful chemicals or colors
- Decently priced
- Ingredients contain other usual chemicals , otherwise none.
- A tube pack would have been better
Price: INR 250
Product Score: 4/5
Product sent by brand for consideration.
Cetaphil is an offering from a Swiss Company called “Galderma”, which has really done a break through in skincare. I have tried their cleansing lotion reviewed here : http://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/09/28/cetaphil-cleansing-lotion-for-sensitive-skin/ . Cetaphil is easily available across medicine shops in the nation. Today I am reviewing the moisturizing cream which could be a HG cream for all dry skinned ladies out there.
The Look and Texture : Its a thick cream which is not tight in texture, its soft and easily blend able. It sinks in to the skin and keeps it deeply moisturized.
The Aroma: It does not have any smell, which is a real positive aspect.
My Experience: My facial skin type is oily-combination, so I have not used it on my face. I use this as a body moisturizer, on days when my skin feels dry and flaky and it really makes my skin feel calm and quenched. Also, this was recommended to my baby by his doctor when he got a certain type of rash called “Pytiriasis Roscea” , which is a extreme dry skin condition sometimes affecting kids, few weeks after a viral fever. It used to soothe his skin and relieve the itching caused due to dry skin. Also, It is used by both my mother an MIL, who have extreme dry skin and find it really good on their skin. It keeps the skin soft, supple and hydrated to perfection without breaking out the skin.
Also good for babies as a general cream , especially if they have dry skin.
Price: INR 230
Summary: Highly recommended to people with extremely dry skin. Also good for babies.

This is going to be a fairly short review. Since last week, I am hardly getting any time to blog 😦 , so busy with family and personal stuffs. TBS body butters are not new to the world of beauty and any person who is obsessed with nice smelling products, do try them out. They leave you feeling soft, supple and yummy smelling. I am reviewing the TBS lemon bosy butter which I have been using for the last three months 🙂 .
Like all TBS body butters, the texture is thick, but easily blendable. Very much hydrating and leaves the skin smooth and supple. Ideal for all types of skin, but oily skinned people might find it heavy during the summers. I have oily-combination skin, but it not make my skin greasy or oily. I love these butters and usually apply this after a shower when the skin is moist, so that it easily gets absorbed by the skin. Now coming to the smell, it smells of fresh lemon skin, very much invigorating. It has Ideal summer smell, for the winters I would prefer the TBS spiced vanilla body butter which I reviewed here: http://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/04/23/the-body-shop-spiced-vanilla-body-butter-review/ . The moisturizing effect lasts for the whole day, though I am not a big fan of the smell.
Price: INR 775
Summary: Recommended! Keeps skin moisturized and soft for the whole day. Though I feel the citrus smell could have been better.
Product Score: 4/5
Which TBS body butter is your favorite ? Do share with us?
In India we have limited choices when it comes to baby products and majority of the market is held by Johnson and Johnson. Even my mom used J&J products for us :). Although the brand has evolved with new packaging and introduction of some new product lines in India, but I feel the quality has deteriorated to some extent as in the sense , the baby cream used to be thick so was the baby oil.
I am reviewing the J&J Milk Lotion, which I use as a body moisturizer for my child which doubles up as a good moisturizer before applying make up. The color of the lotion is white and is runny in consistency being moderately thick. It spreads easily and gets absorbed soon and leaves behind a lingering smell on the baby’s skin. It has a pleasant smell which is different from the regular J&J smell of their baby cream or baby lotion or the powder. It ideally keeps the baby fresh and the skin hydrated for the whole day. All in all a good product, but the imported J&J stuffs are much better. It would be great if J&J India also elevates the quality of their products to that level.
Price: Rs. 140 for 100 ml
Summary: Recommended ! It smells great, which lingers on 🙂 keeps the baby’s skin moisturized and soft. Also can be used to moisturize adult skin. I have no complaints but the quality could be made better , similiar to the imported J&J stuffs.
