I never do regular facials at parlour. Only when there is a function, I go for it. I feel that if you buy the same things, then you can do it yourself at home for a very lesser price, but the massage part is tricky. I know that it should be done by people who know how to do it well. So, when I got a girl who comes to my house and does facials, pedicures, waxing, etc., I was extremely happy. For a change, I can now wax peacefully at home. Good parlors like Lakme, L’Oreal etc., have separate rooms for each person and respect your privacy, but they are all pretty far from where I stay and ultimately I end up going to the ones near my house. They just have a curtain to shield me and many a times I end up displaying my hairy legs to complete stranger girls who look as shocked as me. Okay, so back to the facial story. I bought this one, along with other basic stuff needed for facial and now I do regular facials at home and also ask the girl to give me a facial and massage using this cream.

It smells exactly of Fevicol. Yes, there is nothing soothing about the smell. It stays with you as long as you massage and only fades away once you wipe off the cream.
The texture of the cream is thick when you squeeze it out. If you do not add water to the cream, it is impossible to do a massage with this. It will feel like any normal skin cream and gets absorbed into the skin. But, in the instructions, they have advised to add few drops of water. Once you add water, it spreads easily on the skin and stays on the surface as a layer to give you a good massage experience. But, it gets absorbed into the skin pretty easily, and you need to keep on taking more cream. You just need to add a little bit of water and the cream becomes thin. It will not give you the feeling of a heavy thick layer of cream on your face.
The massage during facials, usually last 20 minutes at least. But for this cream, in the directions, they have asked to massage only for 3 to 5 minutes. When I do it myself, I do for around 5 minutes only and I feel that, it is enough to give me a good glow. There is no need to wash the face with water once the massage is over. It feels like a face cream only and one just needs to wipe off any extra cream from the surface. It does make my skin look a little oily though, but that happens with me after any massage.
After the massage, my skin has a glow to it and looks healthy. There were no dry patches and my skin felt moisturized. I also felt that the elasticity of my skin increased and texture of the skin improved. Skin felt smooth and soft. Whenever I feel that my skin is looking dull, I now give a quick massage with this cream to get a fresh glow.
Once I asked the girl to give me a facial with this cream. I lied down, closed my eyes and relaxed and she started working on my face. In between, I heard her mentioning that this cream is good and it has good effects, etc. Then, she asked me if I have extremely dry skin? I told no and asked her why? She told me that the cream is getting absorbed into the skin because my skin is very dry. I told that my skin is combination and again relaxed. Once she was done, I looked at the pack and to my horror, she used almost half of it in one go! When the skin was absorbing the cream, she was taking more and more cream and massaging it on to my face. I was terribly afraid that it will break me out the next day, but thankfully it did not.
