Have blackheads? Use this.

Heard of a blackhead removal product or technique? Chances are, I’ve tried it. Never has more research and testing effort been put into finding a solution that will rid my skin of the gunk that refuses to part with my pores. And never has a product or technique worked as magically as Dr. Jart+ Pore Penetrator. This miracle serum-type product goes on smooth and removes blackheads as effortlessly as the product description says it will. It’s more effective than most blackhead removal strips but much kinder to your skin. My sensitive skin thanks the wizards at the Dr. Jart labs.

Note: The instructions recommend keeping the product on for 5-10 minutes but for best results, I would suggest letting it work its magic for around 15 minutes while you take sip on your drink of choice in anticipation of your newly polished skin.

Live in a tropical city and have oily skin? Try this gel cream

There are few things in life that can give the same satisfaction as finding the perfect day moisturizer — no matter where you live but especially so in Mumbai, India where we only experience two seasons: summer and monsoon. It’s nearly impossible to find a moisturizer that provides enough hydration and is yet light enough to leave my skin feeling perfectly supple. So, you can imagine my joy when I started using the SN Plant Stem Cell T Cream – Sebum Control System. It is literally the best day moisturizer that I have EVER used. It contains madecassic acid that has anti-inflammatory properties, regulates your skin tone and stimulates the synthesis of collagen types I and III.

The cream comes on thick but quickly absorbs into my skin. It smells amazing and my skin feels fresh, perfectly moisturized and ready to take on the day.
