Best Face Massage Cream for Oily Skin

Ever since I won a giveaway on a blog I have been into face massages, Ask how? Because I won a face massage cream in that giveaway. I was very new into skincare that time and face massage was a very new concept to me. The very first face massage cream I used was The Nature's Co Multi Vitamin Face Massage Cream. At that time I used to just massage my face with an upward stroke here and there but now I do follow some face massage techniques which help me in getting rid of the acne marks left by the pesky acne.

A good face massage is relaxing and invigorating for the skin. A facial massage can greatly enhance the skin's appearance. Facial massage is beneficial in increasing the blood flow, leading to decreased puffiness and improved circulation. A good facial massage helps in getting a radiant and glowing skin. Massaging the facial skin aids in relaxing the muscles.The stimulation of the skin results in increased blood circulation, which helps produce collagen and elastin. A facial massage can be considered as a workout for the facial skin. It detoxifies the skin via lymphatic drainage. A good facial massage doesn't involve rubbing or pulling the skin, rather it should be gentle and relaxing.

As much as the technique followed for the massage is important, it is also important to use a good face massage cream. A face massage cream can penetrate the skin and help in healing or lightening of the acne marks, reduce fine lines and improve the texture of the skin. So today we will be looking at the list of Best Face Massage Creams for Oily Skin.

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream Review

I have started to take my night cream and skincare regime quite seriously now onwards, early new year resolutions you might say 😉😉. I was a big time jerk when I thought that moisturiser or cream causes acne 😲. I asked one my favourite bloggers and she suggested me to use the Himalaya Revitalizing Night Cream for my oily skin and am totally loving the results.

The skin repairs itself during the night time and to aid this repair and rejuvenation process of the skin a good night cream is used. An ideal night cream makes the skin soft and supple while reducing the pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. In short a good night cream rejuvenates, revitalizes and repairs the skin. And this is exactly what the Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream does.

Read more to know how my skin loved this cream and what benefits it has to offer for acne prone oily skin.
Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream Review

Brand Claims -

  • Renews skin cells
  • Hydrates skin
  • Repairs daily damage

Massage revitalizing night cream gently over cleansed face at night before retiring. For best results, use regularly.

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream
Aqua, Isopropyl Myristate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, ricinus communis seed oil and Hydrogenated Castor oil, Glyceril Sterate SE, Cetyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate & Sucrose Cocoate, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Lilium Candidum Bulb Extract, Diemthicone, Sodium Benzoate, Carbomer, Pyrus Malus Fruit Extract, Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylisothiazolincme, Ethylhexylglycerin, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/leaf Extract, Solanum Lycoperscium Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Citrus Medica limonum Fruit Extract, Citrus Grandis Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide
Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream Ingredients

Packaging, Colour, Fragrance and Texture-
The cream comes in a heavy glass jar packaging with a twist cap. The cream is  white in colour and has a pleasant floral fragrance. The fragrance is not at all bothering and remains for some time after applying the cream. The texture of the night cream is creamy which is very light weight. It gets absorbed into the skin like a charm. Once I start using the cream, first few days the fragrance was a little bothersome, all thanks to my picky nose. After few days I got used to it and it didn't have any problem. The fragrance is very subtle but I don't like fragrances of floral kinds and my picky nose immediately sneezes 😞.

My experience with Himalaya Night Cream
Now coming to the texture of the night cream it is a bit creamy and gel sort with thin consistency. The cream is light weight and spreads easily on the skin. It gets easily absorbed in the skin and doesn't leave a oily residue behind. Even if we apply the cream in excess, it doesn't feel oily. A very less quantity of cream is required for the whole face.

After applying the cream I felt fresh and rejuvenated. The cream hydrates and moisturises the skin sufficiently. The facial skin becomes plump and even toned after applying this night cream. Skin feels smooth and soft and in the morning visibly smoother skin is what I wake up to.
I have oily skin and it didn't break me out or didn't make my skin look or feel oily. Himalaya revitalizing night cream works on pigmentation very slowly due to AHA (Tomato extracts) in it, rather it takes around one month to show visible effects. But that is not a problem as the cream is paraben free and the major reason am using this cream is for basic moisturization purpose. For me that is important rather than reducing my pigmentation. I have also seen any visible effects on my acne scars, but very slowly it works on them. Don't expect overnight results, slowly and steadily it does show effects. Have patience😃. Also since some time am using gel based moisturisers for my oily skin during the day and my skin gets dehydrated with the use of clay based masks so that is the time when Himalaya night cream comes to my rescue. It replenishes and rejuvenates my skin and makes it plump with regular usage. Even after using the cream for over 4 years till now I still come back to this cream for some skin nourishment.

The In of Himalaya revitalizing night cream

  • Lightweight cream for oily skin
  • Contains Water lily rich in antioxidants, helps to neutralise free radicals, repairs the daily damage
  • Contains Tomato Extracts  rich in flavonoids and AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) that help in cell renewal.
  • Pleasant floral fragrance which is not bothering
  • Suits oily and acne prone skin
  • Free of Parabens
  • Gets absorbed in skin readily even if applied in excess
  • Works on reducing pigmentation, slowly though, might take months to show effects 
  • Provides sufficient mositure and hydration to the skin
  • Doesn't leave an oily residue or feel heavy on the skin
  • Doesn't make skin look or feel oily even if applied in excess
  • Gives a cooling, smooth feeling to the skin
  • Skin feels nourished and enriched with regular use
  • Non comdogenic and hypollaregenic
  • Dermatologically and clinically tested
  • Budget friendly
  • Product lasts longer as only small quantity is required for each use
The Out of Himalaya revitalizing night cream (Himalaya revitalizing night cream side effects)
  • Contains Isopropyl Myristate which can cause irritation to acne prone skin. I haven't experienced any irritation, but it can be a problem for some people.
  • Regular usage of a few weeks gives white heads so follow double cleansing.
  • Not Fungal acne safe as it contains hydrogenated castor oil
  • Contains silicone (dimethicone)
Price, Shelf life and availability - 200 INR for 50 ml with a shelf life if 3 years. Himalaya revitalizing night cream is easily available on heavy discount here
Recommendation of Himalaya revitalizing night cream
I would totally recommend the Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream for oily skinned beauties who are looking out for basic night cream for thier skincare routine. It works on pigmentation and acne marks but very slowly, rather it takes months to show visible effects. It may suit dry skinned beauties too but won't provide sufficient moisture to dry skin. As the cream is very lightweight and enriched with white lily and tomato extracts it is a true nourishment for the oily skin. I have found my Holy Grail night cream for my oily acne prone skin. Do give Himalaya revitalizing night cream a try if you have oily skin.

HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel Review

Oily skin is prone to acne and clogged pores due to excess sebum secretion. Oily skin needs more of hydration rather than moisturization. I have oily and acne prone skin and to combat it I do everything right from double cleansing to weekly clay masking and steaming. But to truly combat oily skin you need a good moisturizer. Let's see the Review of HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel today.

Brand Claims and Ingredients

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance - The packaging is simple tube with a screw too lid. The product is 30 gms and it is pretty small to carry around. The consistency of the gel is like glue. The gel is colourless and fragrance free. It's not much watery and not too thick. The product is fragrance free but it smells a lot like glue. I have got used to the fragrance but it really bothers.

My experience
I have been using oil free moisturizers since November end. My skin was breaking out crazily if I use oils or heavy moisturizers. So before using HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel I was using Sebamed Clear face gel. So I often end up comparing this one with sebamed.

Now coming to the gel it gets absorbed in the skin upon massaging, but as we try to massage it does spread like water, the consistency remains the same and once absorbed it feels hydrated yet like a thin layer stretched on the skin. You need to actually again massage your face to feel normal. Skin feels soft and smooth for some hours like 4 hours and after this I feel the need to again moisturize my skin.

In between with the winters being too harsh I applied two layers of this moisturizer with a gap of 20 minutes and the upper layer just peeled out after some hours instead of getting absorbed. This part especially disappointed me a lot. Also coming to the fragrance it feels a bit off and is like glue.
One thing I would like to say is this product is good as a moisturizer if you are breaking out with literally everything, by everything I mean everything. My skin couldn't tolerate oils, emulsifiers and any double cleansing last month, so I was using HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel and it pretty much worked good. This moisturizer is good to use beneath a sunscreen wherein we get worried about a moisturizer clogging the pores.

The In
  • Compact packaging
  • Oil free Light weight gel for oily acne prone skin
  • Doesn't contain artificial fragrance or colour
  • Gets absorbed easily into the skin
  • Contains glycerine, Hyaluronic acid in aqueous gel base
  • Non-oily, non-comedogenic aqueous gel

The Out
  • It is a little sticky when applied in excess
  • Contains parabens (if you are concerned about using them)
  • It doesn't contain any artificial fragrance but existing fragrance is like glue
  • A bit pricey according to the quantity

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 349 INR for 30 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. Available on Amazon, Ethicare Remedies website

Recommendation -
HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel is a good moisturizer if you are not able to tolerate any moisturizer or face oil and your skin is breaking out crazily. The only thing I don't like it you can't use more than a required quantity of HyaluGel Plus Hyaluronic Acid Gel. If you apply excess product it won't get absorbed into the skin and will just sit on top of the skin as a layer. Also product is pricier than it's counterparts in the market. I don't like the fragrance and the non-absorbing nature of the product when applied in excess. Overall speaking I would say this is an ok sort of a moisturizer for oily skin.

Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack Review

I hope you all are safe and at home during this tough time. With this free time am using up most of the skincare product. I have used them sufficiently and then review for you all so that you can make some informed decisions about what to pick and what to not. Today I will be reviewing Roopmantra face pack for you which I have been using since 4 weeks. Let's see what the product claims to do and how it fairs

Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack

Brand claims and Ingredients

Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack ingredients

Texture, Packaging and fragrance
The packaging is normal flip cap tube which is travel friendly and spill proof. The texture of the face pack is smooth clay like but a little thick. Although the face pack glides easily on the face and is easy to wash off. The fragance of the Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack is that of Chandan (sandalwood). The color of the face pack is beige yellow.

My experience with Roop Mantra Face Pack
Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack is fortified with herbs like turmeric, aloe vera, chandan. I use Roop Mantra face pack once or maximum twice a week. The face pack has nice smooth consistency which makes the application easy even with a brush. The product has a little strong fragance of chandan and may not go well with people who use fragance free products.

The Roopmantra Face Pack promises to reduce acne, pimple and scars. I have used a thin layer of face pack when I had some small zits and it reduced the size of small zits in one use. The face pack tingles a bit and dries up super quick. I have made it a conscious effort of applying a thin layer of any face pack which contains clay. So after applying a thin layer of Roopmantra Face Pack it dries up too quickly and tightens the skin a bit. The face pack doesn't dry out the skin but can be a bit dehydrating.

The face pack gets washed off easily and gives clean, clear and glowing skin. It also reduces tan upto a certain extent although effects will be shown with regular usage. Overall speaking Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack is a go-to face pack when you don't have much time to let the face pack dry as well as address acne. I would suggest sensitive skin types and dry skin types to stay away from the face pack. Also the product doesn't disclose full ingredients list which might be a concern for some people.

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 87 INR for 60 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. Available on major shopping portals like Amazon, Flipkart and Nykaa.

Recommendation of Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack
Overall speaking Roop Mantra Haldi Chandan Face Pack can be an affordable yet effective go-to face pack for some people who don't have time to keep the face packs for long. It dries up quickly and also reduces small acne with regular use. Please note it doesn't prevent the acne from forming but dries them up for fast healing. It also contains haldi and chandan which are beneficial for the skin in the long run. A good budget friendly face pack for normal, combination and oily skin. Sensitive and dry skinned beauties may skip this due to tingling sensation and artificial fragance.
