Skin-type: Combination and acne-prone
My skin had become really dull and dark which made it look lifeless. I have always got attracted towards the “brightening” ranges because my skin is very pale and needs the glow to make it look healthy. I have 2 products from this range, so will start with the Day Crème followed by the Eye Cream. Here is the review on the Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Day Crème; stay tuned for the eye cream!
Price: Rs 990/- for 25 g

My Experience with Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Day Crème:
Packaging: The Colorbar Day Creme comes in a nice glossy royal blue box with silver and white fonts over it. The box looks very luxurious and the packaging is bang on. The box contains a little leaflet which mentions about all the products of the “Hydra White” range. And inside sits the little Colorbar tub. The tub of the crème looks very alluring to me as it looks unique. It has a blue base with a silver mirrored cap over it. The cap is just like a mirror and I can see myself, what a nice thought! I can look into it and apply the cream. The quantity I would say is pretty less because the price is really high. The tub is handy and can be a perfect one for travels.
Consistency and feel on the skin: The crème comes in pure white colour and looks exactly like Nivea cream. The consistency is just amazing. It is super creamy and glides like butter. It goes very smooth on the skin and the consistency is perfect; it is neither very thick nor very runny. It feels a bit heavy on me but this is made for the dry skin, so it is absolutely perfect. If you have any other skin-type then do not try this because it will feel “chip-chip” and heavy. But if you have dry skin, then this is surely worth a go. It stays put and does not itch or irritate my skin at all.
Results: The moment I apply it, it adds a dose of instant hydration to my skin. My skin feels extremely soft, smooth and supple. I can feel “the bounce” in my skin and it instantly treats the dryness on the face. I can see a little brightness and freshness on my face which conceals my dullness. I noticed instant brightening but there is no long-term effect of brightening or whitening. My skin looks a bit clear after prolonged use and I can see reduction in dark spots but not to a very great extent. So I will say that it is good to use as a day cream with SPF which will protect your skin but does not have any major long-term effects as such.
