Yet another fairness cream? Well No!
We Asians have heard of ever so many fairness creams and their commercials with all their fancy promises of lightening you're skin tone in just three weeks, like voila it will transform you into the most desired girl in college and even overrated to the extent of becoming a Celebrity over night! Unfortunately these brands have been absolutely deceiving and are guilty of creating such false images of beauty and perfection. Although I strongly believe that each of us are uniquely beautiful in our own skin tone, be it white, olive, dusky, chocolate or dark chocolate; I must say that every girl wants that ultimate solution to signs of skin damage or aging such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, discolouration and dark circles. Who doesn't want a uniform healthy flawless skin tone?!
Every single day, we are exposed to dust, pollution, UV rays and heat that can result in prominent discolouration and darker patches around the forehead or around the mouth. Stressful lifestyles or habits of constant rubbing of the skin cause a lot of men and women to suffer with dark circles, black spots and hyperpigmentation.
The natural home remedies that do work when used over a long period of time are tomatoes, Lime and honey, turmeric has antibacterial/antifungal properties and Potatoes are great tan removers too!
However, what if there is one magical product with natural ingredients that has been time tested in ayurveda like "Saffron" as the core ingredient, that actually works and lives up to what it claims ?????
My bestie, Madonna introduced me to this ultimate transforming product that has made such a huge difference to me. Thanks to her! Olifair Radiant night cream-When I saw visible results of how it has worked on me and on my friend, I couldn't stop myself from sharing it with you guys!
The Olifair Radiant effect-Night Cream is made from premium Nature quality components developed by modern cosmetic Technology. It is manufactured by Olifair Scharlap & Gentle, at Hamburg Germany. It is formulated for all skin types, for both men and women. This Night cream is enriched with Triticum Sativum Carrot Seed Oil, which nourishes the skin and also makes it luminescent and radiant. This cream contains botanical rosemary which even tones the skin, reduces the darkness and patchiness and smoothens the skin texture. The description 'claims' that the unique Pearls Powder in Olifair Fairness Cream is an effective skin lightening compound while Linalool , a naturally occurring chemical found in many flowers and spice plants helps protect the skin against oxidative damage.
It is recommended to be used every night after cleansing you're skin with a deep cleanser. I use the neutrogena deep pore cleanser. Then, Gently pat a small amount of the product on you're skin without forcefully rubbing it into the pores. As you can see, the product is yellow and it does coat the skin with a slight yellowish tint after application. The packaging is in this beautiful sturdy glass pot with a golden lid to it. The fragrance is fresh and refreshing, the smell is typical of a herbal or natural product, although it does contain glycerin and a few other chemical ingredients as mentioned in the box below. It also comes with instructions to apply and cautions in case you may experience any irritation, although I have personally not experienced any such discomfort.
Olifair is available in parts of Europe and you can also purchase it on Amazon or flipkart. I had to do a small research before I ordered it, to ensure I buy it from a reliable vendor by checking for vendor reviews before purchase to make sure I don't get a fake product. I got this for Rs.1099/- and I do feel it's definitely worth the buy!
Olifair is also recommended as safe for sensitive skin and I must say, it works really well on oily skin as it results in making you're skin feel matte and healthy. I have normal to dry skin, so I prefer to retain the moisture and hydration on my skin as I allow my skin to rejenuate and breathe through the night. To hydrate, I use a couple of drops of Estée Lauder advanced night repair serum just before I go ahead and apply the Olifair night cream. I allow this portion to work on me throughout the night and wash it off in the morning with a cleansing wash. Through the day, ensure you have a day cream or a hydrating sunscreen to protect yourself from further sun damage and to see faster visible results.
To my absolute surprise, I noticed a visible difference within 5 days of using Olifair and that got me excited to see what wonders it could do to my skin, if I continued using it! Over 10-15 days, the hyperpigmentation had considerably vanished and I noticed that my skin is now more even toned without any discolouration. You can continue to use it until you visibly notice you're skin being transformed from how it was earlier. I wish I had a before and after picture to share with you guys. I wouldn't call it a skin lightening or fairness cream but it definitely works to reverse any sort of skin damage and thereby resulting in a more radiant and flawless complexion.
Do share you're thoughts and comments on how it has worked for you if you have already tried this product out or if you wish to try out in the future. Do let me know if you would also like me to do a detailed review on the Estée Lauder Advanced night repair serum.
