Ponds Age Miracle Tinted Moisturizer - Review

I have been using Ponds Age Miracle Tinted Moisturizer in Sheer Ivory (01) for about a month now. Here is the review:

What the company says: Experience the dual power of anti-ageing skincare with a natural "no make up" finish with our lightweight, tinted anti-ageing moisturizer
With super-fine colorspheres to even out your skin tone and the same active ingredients of one of our best anti-ageing moisturizer, Advanced CLA Complex + SPF 15 PA++  for that smooth, natural finish with a luminous radiant glow.

How to enjoy a naturally sheer finish with anti-ageing protection:
Apply evenly over thoroughly cleansed face.
  • Visibly reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores
  • Conceals to minimize age spots
  • Gives a natural,”no make-up” finish
  • Available in 3 skin-blending shades(Sheer Ivory, Sheer Honey, Sheer Beige)
1. Combines a moisturizer, sunscreen (spf 15) & foundation: a 3 in one product, this saves me tremendous time on rushed office mornings and is perfect for mumbai's humid weather where multiple layers are not wearable
2. Easy blending: the foundation is so easy to blend, it is like a dream. There is no cakey-ness, no flakiness. Like a foundation for dummies (I like!!)
3. Moisturizing power is good. Though people with oily skin may find it a little too much and may need to use powder on top. 
4. You just need a small pea sized amount for the entire face & neck
5. It does really minimize the appearance of pores, and lightens the appearence of my acne spots
6. Non-comodogenic: I have not got any acne while using this.
7. High staying power: lasts throughout the day. 
8. The packaging is small & cute & easy to carry in your bag

1. Coverage is not very heavy. It offers sheer to medium coverage. 
2. May not suit oily skin
3. Available in only 3 shades (Sheer Ivory, Sheer Rose & Sheer Honey)

Price: Rs. 215 for 30 ml

Will I buy it again: Yes! This is great product that saves me a ton of time in the morning. I just need to apply this to my clean face & I get a moisturizer, a sunscreen & a foundation all in one in a grease free format. I don't know if it has any anti-aging effects, but I have noticed that my pores have become/appear smaller, and my skin has become more clearer and softer with daily use. I even use this for night time events,  as I really dislike heavy, thick foundations.

  1. Great review on our favorite product :D


  2. Thks :D

    I love this thing and I owe this to your gr8 review of this :D

    Though I have moved up a shade now - use this in sheer rose (02).. it has a hint of pink tht suited my skin more and looked more natural than sheer ivory :D

  3. Hey there girls.. i finally got this based on all the various rave reviews...i think i should move up a shade too.. it think sheer ivory looks a little white on me..Maybe sheer rose would be better.. when one is confused.. should you go lighter or darker??
    How do you apply this?? i find i need a lot more than a pea sized amount.. maybe i am smearing on too much... It blends so well i cant tell if i missed a spot.. Help!!

  4. 19...and really really want to try out this it suitable for me? (being anti ageing and all?)

    1. I think you shd be able to use it Dilpreet.. first of all I don't think it has too many anti-aging properties, and even if it did - that will only be good for your skin :)

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
