Why should you buy Aroma Magic Almond moisturizig Lotion?

  • It lives up to the claim of moisturization, hydration and condition. I don’t have to reapply the cream until night, which is good. :)
  • It feels like you are applying rick milk cream on your skin.
  • It keeps my skin moist and supple the entire day.
  • The smell is not over powering. To me it smells like a faint smell of bitter almonds. lol!! Can’t define. :P
  • The bottle is so sleek that I end up carrying with me all the time.
  • The quantity is good for the price.
  • It is not tested on animals.
  • My skin feels so soft even after hours of applying  that I keep touching my face every now and then. :)

Why should you NOT buy Aroma Magic Almond moisturizig Lotion?

  • The cap. Oh my, it is so tight. I broke my nail, and then I hurt my finger. :( Now I open the full cap and and take out the lotion directly from the bottle.

Hi Rati
Would yo u recommend this for someone with acne prone skin (but otherwise skin is blotchy and can get dry around the nose and mouth area)

Also can you please do a review for foundations – where you can compare maybelline, revlon, neutrogena and MAC

I would ideally like to use a foundation which does not cost more than 700Rs (revlon is around that price range) – its good on my skin but somehow even their formula for ‘dry’ skin ends up giving me some dry patches here and there despite moisturization – and sometimes my skin area starts looking grayish after application

maybe i need a better moisturizer – but i need somethign which wont cause me acne. i am thinking of trying the blossom kochhar one

I know this review is already 2 years old n m new in this community :toothygrin: so, I would share you my experience of this lotion, I never had used any cream as such on my face till age 21 as I suffered frm acne, bt then i could feel my skin quite rough n not so smooth, so I just bought it and have been using it since then and its very long lasting, i do suffer from occasional break outs bt it has managed to keep my face nice and smooth, though now i hv begun to notice dryness bt it is my HG.. :jiggy1: :jiggy1: . DO TRY…. If not good then it won’t harm either unlike other chemical infused creams…

Great review Rati. I’ve used this n a lot of Aroma Magic products when I was taking up courses at Pivot Point…but I’ve forgotten how I found them. I might try some again. But I sure do remember the cap problem n broken nails! :) I used to use a towel or the edge of a table to open them.

Thanks, Cynthia. I have used so many of her products and now I have even started believing in them. I am yet to come across a rotten apple. I was running short of my moisturizing lotion and this came as a godsent product for me. It just so hydrating. Also, these products prove that expensive products are not always good. :)

What all courses did you do at Pivot Point?

oh wow i love the size of that thing! i really have to try out aroma magic’s products now. but hear this, i am unable to most products of this line at my local outlet! sad. where do you get yours from?

Rati February 19, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Rima, I got this sent from the company for testing and trying. But I loved it so much that I am going to buy this myself now. It is so available at the stores near my home.

Infact, you have to try their cuticle cream as well. I get these painful cuticles during winters. I apply the cream at night and till morning the sides of my nails are fine.

Hey, I was recommended this moisturizer like 4-5 months back by this lady at the parlor.. But I didn’t get it coz i didn’t like their fairy lotion.

Will get it since u have such a good opinion about it :D, but after 6 mnths.. Have decided to stop shopping and finish off all the stuff I have first & only then get anything new :D

Rati February 20, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Piya,

I mainly shop at GK-1 M Block market, Select city walk, shopper’s stop and Kailash Colony Market. Mainly because they are all near to my home. :P Which part of Delhi are you putting up?

Tanveer,

I have also kinda decided the same with a lot of products and it gives a good satisfying feeling when you finish off the product. :)

Not tried the fairy lotion but this product is really good.

Hi Rati

Here’s my skin care routine:
1. Wash with Himalaya Neem Face wash
2. Tone with Proactive toner
3. Moisturize with clean and clear face moisturizer (i have also tried Vichy – cost me around 1200Rs and has not improved my skin at all – but is ok as a face prime)
4. Revlon color stay foundation

At night I simply was my face with the Himalaya Neem face wash (occasionally moisturize again in winters)

Rati February 20, 2010 at 3:01 pm

You must change your cleanser. Use this : http://store.himalayahealthcare.com/skincare/Oil-balancing-face-wash-gel.htm instead. For an oily skin, a lemon based cleanser helps to reduce oil and keep the texture of your skin in place. You are already using a toner, which is essential. I wouldn’t suggest this moisturizer for you because it has glycerin and oils in it and the formula is pretty creamy and a little heavy. I suggest that you use Himalaya’s face moisturizing lotion : http://store.himalayahealthcare.com/skincare/face-moisturizing-lotion.htm

It has aloe vera and it would help in healing your skin. To apply, apply the lotion directly on the dry areas and mix it with a little water to apply on your acne prone areas. It’s a myth that oily skin does not need moisturization. So moisturize your face well.

Use some kind of sunscreen or at least something that has SPF in it to protect your skin. Sunscreen is as important as brushing your teeth. :P

Cleanse tone and moisturize twice a day.

Some other things that you could do are

1. Mix equal parts of lemon juice and water in a bowl and apply it all over your face. Rinse it after a few minutes
2. Use a clay mask at least once a week.
3. Keep blotting sheets/ tissues handy with you to remove the excess oil from your face.
4. If you have dandruff, treat that.

Hope that helps. :)

there are many good cosmetic shops in and around c4E janakpuri. or go to dwarka sec 4, right opposite pizza hut and costa coffe, there’s a HUGE and AMAZING store. had to miss. i don’t know any names (which is kind of strange!), but these are my favourite places to shop at, locally.

other places are malls. places close by are lifestyle at city square which hosts most medium range brands while shoppers stop, rajouri also has high end brands like ysl, givenchy and also a mac! let me tell you that there’s a body shop on the first floor of westgate mall, rajouri.

places that are far away are promenade, vasant vihar (already has a mac, inglot opening soon), select city walk, saket (ALL brands including mac, inglot and also the only lord and berry store in india!) and ambience, gurgaon (most brands including mac).

phew.

Rima, the price listed on the site of Lord and Berry is totally a mismatch from the real prices. The price of the lippies is around 800 and above and the site says 150. :P Same with the brushes.

haha yeah their website has been hacked i think

Thanks Rati. I’ll try this out. Will update you guys when my skin starts looking better :)

Can you also please tell me about some good foundation (not too costly though)

Reply

Rati February 21, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Hi Asli Nakli,

Honestly, I have not used many foundations and after a bad experience from Lakme, I have totally switched to MAC for my foundations. However I keep looking around for stuff at the shops so here goes my recommendations:

1. Max factor foundations. Look for the one that does not have mineral oil present in it.
2. I recently purchased colorbar’s foundation but it is for heavy coverage and has matte finish. I quote liked it. It should work for oily skin.
3. Revlon foundations come according to skin type, you could choose one from oily skin range
4. Maybelline mousee is something you could look at.

Rati February 22, 2010 at 9:40 am

Hye Shivani, Welcome Home! :) I generally apply kajal. These days I am loving Lotus herbal Kajal but I have also used Colorbar’s eyeliners on waterline and have had no issues with it. By rule I don’t apply any liquid liner on waterline but I am okay with using pencil liners on water line. So far, no bad experience.

Btw have you tried Mac smolder?

Rati February 22, 2010 at 3:14 pm

For some reason I have started getting less and less black heads. I don’t know what changed in my regime. But I really want to explore Blossom’s range now. Really liking it a lot. :)

hi….

Can anyone suggest me a gud night cream or lotion for oily skin. I have a fair but oily skin n a few spots as a result of pimples. I also suffer from whiteheads and blackheads

Reply

Rati September 19, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Hi Monalisa ,

I have never used a separate night cream. Use the same cream for both night and day and it works just fine.

For black heads, use a scrub. St Ives does a good job with scrubs.

Hey Rati,
I am posting after a long time! i am a complete aroma magic junkie, have probably tried all their products and continue to do so.

I think i have tried this moisturiser years back and remember for a fact that it burnt my skin. I have super sensitive skin and many products make me red so just an add on to this discussion. I don’t think its for sensitive skin.
