JUST HERBS AFFAIR FUMITTORY LIQUORICE SKIN LIGHTENING CREME REVIEW

HI EVERYONE !!

                         Today on the blog i am going to review AF'FAIR FUMITTORY LIQUORICE  Skin Lightening Creme from JUST HERBS . JUST HERBS is another ayurvedic brand that i am in love with  . After abusing my skin with almost every possible chemical i could  (while using chemical based face washes or other skin care products )    finally i have found my secret to Skin Care .

                                                                           
  I am loving my skin these days and i hope my skin is happy too and thankful to me for taking a good care of it without using any chemical based products on it .

I bought this Just Herbs Fumittory Liquorice Skin Lightening Creme online from here .

PRICE AND PACKAGING : This 50gm. pack costs you Rs.395 and should be used within 6 months once opened . Shelf life is 3 years from the date of manufacture .

                                                                             

Its a basic plastic tub pack which comes with a golden metal screw cap at the top . Cap is quite convenient to open and its a travel friendly pack not heavy in weight and not big in size . Could be carried away easily wherever you go . The only issue with tub packs is that i don't find them hygienic enough . So i use a clean plastic spatula to get the product out of it . All in all packaging is quite basic and not much to be talked about.

SMELL AND TEXTURE : It is light creamish in color and texture is thick and not runny just like most of the products in tub packs are . Smell is bit strong as it contains natural and ayurvedic ingredients but it fades away within minutes after applying . I could not judge what exactly it smells of but it definitely smells bit strong like most herbal products smell .  A little pea size amount is enough to cover up the whole face and you have to massage it for a while to let it get properly absorbed by the skin . It feels bit sticky when you first apply it but just like its fragrance , stickiness also does not stays for long . Within minutes skin absorbs it completely .

                                                           

WHAT IT CLAIMS AND CONTAINS :  It basically consists of 99.3 % natural ingredients and 100% herbal active ingredients . It is paraben free and suitable for normal to dry skin  .

A blend of exotic natural extracts of wonder herbs, this night cream helps to fade away dark patches and spots. Indian herbs Fumittory and Manjishtha help detoxify the blood and boost circulation to fade freckles and skin discolorations, while liquorice and yellow zedoary help control the melanin producing mechanism triggered by inflammatory response of the skin to exposure of sun’s UV rays. Vetiver roots promote skin regeneration and rejuvenate the sun damaged skin cells for a visibly fairer and radiant skin . ( as claimed on their site here )

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT : I noticed a small little dark patch near my chin and lip area which  made me bit anxious . I didn't knew what it was and why it appeared but after doing little research i found that this is pigmentation which further distressed me . So , i searched for a skin lightening creme online and came across this one . Although i have oily skin but i noticed later when the product arrived that this product was meant for normal to dry skin . Still i decided to give it a try and after applying it every night before going to bed  for about a fortnight i am noticing such good results :)  Other than that reduced pigmentation mark my minor acne or pimple scars are also fading . It has not caused any breakouts on my skin so far and skin is feeling bright and lustrous too . I am loving the way it has treated my pigmentation spot and i am sure that it being a chemical free formula it wont create any other skin problem as a side effect . Mostly chemical based products treat one skin problem of yours and another arises as a side effect . As summer has already arrived i have started using it mixing with a little drop of aloe vera gel to play it safe . Its basically a night creme and works best if you use it before going to bed . Would suggest not to use it as a day cream as it would invite dust and could clog pores .
