Directions For Use:

Mix a required amount into a moisturiser suitable for your skin type.  Apply all over face and neck.  Can be used at morning and in the evening.  Use regularly for notable results.


I have old packaging, but the new price is Rs. 530.  I bought it online and got it at a discounted price of Rs. 454.


I have the old packaging which I like, its an easy-to-use tube.

Makeup Base


40 gm + 10 gm free, so total 50 gm.  This tube lasts very long as one needs only a little amount of the cream.

My Views on Shahnaz Husain Shabase Sandalwood Protective Base:

I used it in the way its written on the tube. So, I had to buy Shasilk with it, which is available at Rs. 446 after discount on the same site.  Its original price is Rs. 465.  I mixed both the creams in equal amount and used it all over the face.  Initially, when I applied it on the face, I did not like the feeling, its kind of sticky, but within a few minutes, it felt nice.  If I have to go out, I dab a little face powder and I am all set to go.  It works like a light coverage foundation and gives a long-lasting matte look.  A few times, I tried using the base alone in summers and it worked well.

Herbal Foundation

It never turned my face oily which is very good.  If I need full makeup, I can do so over the base.  It works nicely with concealer and face powder.  It helped in making my skin oil free for long and does not dry out the face. I have already finished my first tube and have ordered the second one.

Pros of Shahnaz Husain Shabase Sandalwood Protective Base:

  • It gives light coverage.
  • One can use the base while staying at home as it does not feel like makeup.
  • Nice fragrance.
  • Nice packaging.
  • Available widely.
  • Can be used as a daily base.
  • A single tube lasts very long.
  • Does not make face oily and gives a matte effect.
  • It gives me a soothing herbal feeling and a feeling that I have applied something nice on my face .
  • It helped in controlling acne to some extent.

Cons of Shahnaz Husain Shabase Sandalwood Protective Base:

  • One has to buy another cream along with this base and that makes it a pricey affair.
  • Initially, when applied, it makes the skin a little sticky.  It gives a feeling that we have put something heavy on the face, but after some time, it turns into a pleasant and matte texture.

IMBB Rating:


Ladies with oily pimple-prone skin must give it a try.  Its a nice product overall. I would keep buying this one.

  1. I don’t trust this brand and trying a product at this price will be a stupid idea for me. Good that it worked for you Kirandeep. You’re one of the few lucky people who find Shahnaz products effective. 🙂

  2. if u have pimple prone skin and want to save a few bucks, try a combination of shaclove mixed with a regular calamine lotion. I have oily skin and i mix a tiny bit of shaclove with some calamine and apply. it keeps my skin matte and has calmed eruptions too. shaclove too retails for 400-500 rs, (i hate that they keep hiking the price like mad) and to make it last long i mix it with some calamine in the day time, and some aloe gel in the night.

  3. hi supriya , thankx so much for ur advice , I have been using shaclove and shaderm . one has to mix it and put on face as a pack for 20 mins. Great results . Actually i bought shahnaz pimple treatment kit . It has shaclear , shaderm and shaclove . My skin is really liking it .. I will post the review on it soon ………
