  1. Hi rati..thanx for posting this query..hope i’ll get the answer.. :waiting: and do let me know which cream u suggest for 30 +….(day time & night time)..

  2. Ponds Age renew :victory: :victory: …n even Olay Total effects as my mom hav used it.. its gud… :victory2: :victory2:

  3. @ Rads & Nids: ya..even i have heard a lot abt olay total effect…
    @Rads..loving u’r profile pic …u look sooo pretty….. :whistle:

    1. Ponds Age Miracle night cream..i adore this one!!skin feels bright, smooth, glowing in the morning..and my exp is that if at all i have some rashes kind of thing on my face due to pollution or reaction to some toner/other face products, once i use this on night the entire face becomes clear n soft the next day mroning!!

      1. Hi Shyna… question..will it b suitable for my more of dry and lil oily on nose kinda of skin…? if yes..then sure i’ll try it.. :waytogo:

  4. I do have to add a bit more though. I have heard a lot of girls saying Olay TE is an absolute waste of money. The reason they give for saying this “I didn’t notice any difference.” In my opinion, your skin should have signs of aging to see any reversal. You should have used it for a long enough period of time (at least 2-3 months). And lastly, I also feel that if your skin is perfectly normal and you are using this like a preventive measure, then in that case how do you say “I notice no difference”…I mean what difference where you expecting…turning into a that won’t happen.

    My rant over.

    Rati – do you pay for rants? I accept payments of Lotus nail polishes O:)

    1. khikhi..Even I say the same..I am using Olay TE already, but donno if it is effective or not!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› Just that it makes my skin mildly oily, but that might be coz I already have oily/combination skin. Also I get over this oiliness with simple compact, so dont think it to be a con. But they test on animals and hence deserve :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: from me!! :vampire:

        1. There are ppl who say it makes their skin oily or causes breakouts – me total support for that..if it doesn’t suit you why use it na. My major irritation is with the “no effect” thing..actually my friend only..she says that for every antiaging thing and I get all thinkkkk she find it very amusing me getting irritated and tells it just to irritate me 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

          1. he he me doesnt say it is just says that me donno how much effective it is!!see..there is a difference!! :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: Me a good girl!!! O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

          2. Yes Castor, you should tell them that they need to keep on running in order to stay at the same place. Better a “no effec- no change” than “aging signs” :toothygrin:

    2. rant mata :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: ,, what according to you is the right age to start with with anti aging stuff ?? tell me the answer, me will pay u nicely , gunny bags full of nice stuff :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:

      1. Gunny bags – what nice stuff comes in gunny bags ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) HIDESIGN BAGS :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: I louuuu you Naina…. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

        No idea when it’s the right age to start…my personal personal theory is..see I had superoily skin..and then I got it to oily combi I feel ke as it starts getting drier I need to give it more nourishing cream…that to me is antiaging. O:) O:) O:) O:)

        1. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: … my skin is going from normal too dry to sooperoily .. and me very shmallllllll noww… so me will ask u few years later again :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

          radsssss , i read u sleep late .. why ??? what are u busy doing ??? O:)

            1. oh ho !!! kya baat !! :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :toothygrin: πŸ˜‰

    3. Hi Rads…actually my skin is looking lil dull these days…and m reaching 30… :weep: so looking for a cream that brings the glow back….if olay does that..i’ll b more than happy…and what i have heared abt olay is positive only… O:)

      1. No idea if it will work that mom uses it and loves it..and I can actually see a diff in her skin..I have tried…it worked as a decent moisturizer for other results..but my friend said it made her skin really I don’t know about the effects on skin that’s not actually old.

  5. :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: Oooooh I go pick the colours…me don’t want all the NPs, will take just the cute ones only..thank you very much :victory2: :victory2: :victory2: :victory2:

  6. ponds age miracle day and night cream are good. i ve been using them for past 2 yrs. the day cream has SPF and it protects ur skin without giving a white effect. the night cream works so well, doesnt give oily finish. it gives u a pearly look in the morning. :yahoo: though i dont have any aging effect I started using them when i was 28. i am on my 3rd jar. Yes it lasts long :woot:

Yes it lasts long :woot:

  8. I am going to start with this anti-aging stuff by the time I reach 25-26…..Want to look young forever 😐

  9. i hate all you 20’s and 30 year old.. :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: kiddinggggggggggggggggggggggggggg πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† ..but i agree the oil of olay TE is really good.their cleaner is also really good.but at 40+ i am just loving lacto calamine. I cud be their spokesperson at this point..wondering if LC wud be good for 30+ as well..hmmmm.. ?:) ?:) ?:)

          1. welcomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Rads..i used to go around raving abt Oil of Olay to everyone and even got a couple of my friends to change to Oil of olay..nowadays i am talking good things abt LC..i am sure at some point they r going to stop listening to me.. :)) i keep trying new stuff and buying loads of stuff all the time..i shud get them to join IMBB..they’ll know my dilemma (spelling??)

      1. they have a good cleanser too which i have been using for the past week..same purple colored thingie. defy 2 thumbs up for these products :yes: :yes:

      1. hehhe..ya but sanjeev if it helps 30’s are new 20’s..:) :whistle: :whistle: or maybe it is just to make me feel that the 40’s are the new 30’s.. πŸ˜‰

        1. ABSOLUTELY GABBAR..:) and anyways whatever makes us feels good at the end of the day is what is important..what says??? :))

              1. Gabbu, ghar mein bohot macchhar ho gaye the, sab maar dale; objects ka kya hai, my biwi couriered a lot of Melody toffees to people.. sabko horcrux bana diya..

    1. Hi Aruna….even i m using Lacto calamine..but i m missing that glow…LC gives a matt finish to the face..i like LC alot but i also want to have a glowy i m growing older… :weep: :weep: :weep: πŸ˜₯ i want to take extra care now…

      1. totally understand does give a matt finish but somehow i feel my makeup lasts longer..i feel i had to do more touchup during the day when i was using other face lotions and I am kinda lazy so other than listick i am just not into retouching my face during the day and with the summer already beating down on Hyd, i am liking the LC finish..i am thinking (i cud be wrong) that perhaps the glow cud also come out facials. kind of doing them once a month types..

  10. anshu, check with oriflame dear… they hv many nice anti ageing products which include day n night creams…. though i dnt use any anti ageing products,but i feel u cn give oriflame a try ! u cn go through their catalogue for this month online..this month catalogue has many discounts on account of women’s day !

  11. I am 33 & it is only now that I have ordered my first anti-ageing cream from Avon. It’s a night cream-total solutions. The day variant of it was reviewed recently here. At present I only use Patanjali aloe vera gel at night along with my eye cream.

    For day I use only Lacto calamine & I love it. πŸ™‚

  12. umm… why doesn’t exercising/ gymming never figures out in these kinds of advices? 30- 60 minutes on a treadmill with lots of sweating and bath afterwards keeps the skin really glowy.. πŸ˜›

        1. Sure Sanjeevji…just give a beating to that Cali and rads who make fun of innocent girls…and write dumb stuff :hunterwali:

            1. Err…Sanjeev ,I did’nt mean to be rude to anybody…did’nt know ‘dumb’ would sound rude 😐 was just normal fun stuff ..

              Anyways, Sorry ,dont know why my words are misinterpreted so much..

              1. Don’t worry Sonam, I didn’t think for one moment that you were rude otherwise my tone would have been different. I knew it was the problem of the choice of your words and that is why I asked you to pick your words carefully. Understand that when your only means of communication are words, and words only since people cannot see your gestures, it is better to pay attention to what you are writing.

                Jab shaadi ho jayegi na, you’ll understand the importance of what I’m saying πŸ™‚

    1. awwwwwwwwww i was going to give that advice but as usual i thot what will ppl say!! but here goes my 2 cents bit anyways – positive thinking, meditation and accepting ppl for who they are plays a big part on how one beats any facial on this planet πŸ™‚

    2. Sanjeev ji…i have already started Gymming ….and i agree it does help in keeping u healthy…and u’r skin too…but creams also do wonders na…so we shud use these tooo…. :haanji:

  13. I am in my 30’s….so a great question to answer!!! :whistle:

    I use Aveeno Night cream and Aveeno Moisturizer with SPF 30 during daytime.
    I also use DermaDoctor’s Eye cream – hydrating and reduces puffiness.

    For skincare….I just started this couple months back on regular basis and hoping it develops into a life-long habit…..

    1) 1 Multivitamin daily
    2) Exfoliate/deep clean with my Clarasonic cleanser twice-thrice a week.
    3) Daily cleaning ritual using makeup remover & Cetaphil or Purity cleanser.
    4) Daily moisturizing ritual with all the moisturizers above.
    5) Use baby oil at night-time once a week – preferably Sat night. Just a drop or two and rub all over the face….and then another drop or two for hands and elbows.

    It is time-consuming to do all this….but it is satisfying when you can say you gave time to yourself. I also workout 3-4 times a week in a gym. I try to cook super-nutritious meals 4-5 times a week for entire family……

    So there you go….no rocket science….but forming a habit one step at a time….. :victory:

    1. Thanx Nia…I have started following similar routine ..the one lil doubt was abt the right creams to b used now…reaching 30… :struggle:

  14. :thanks: all the lovely ladies for their suggestions.. O:) it was indeed a gr8 help.. u all……. :kissblow: but i do miss Rati’s suggestions here….. :((
