Skin Care Product Reviews : Revlon, Clean & Clear, Parachute


I’m kinda new firstly i’d like to thank all Ulite members for providing this wonderful place for all makeup beginners (like me).you all have no idea how addicting and helpful this place is..

Also I’d like to mention here that on my post ‘fashion tips for plus size women’, I was asked a few questions in the comments which I couldn’t reply to at that time because I got busy with exams. But I answered all of them a few days later so if you guys want to, you can check the post again.

Ok this post is going to be about a few products that I have recently started using.


I’ll start with the Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturiser Oil Free Lotion..that’s a long name!!

Clean and clear oil free moisturiser

What the cover says: the 100% oil free formulation balances the skin moisture and soothes the dry areas. Also helps in blemishes.
My Experience: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.. I have combination skin type and this suits me to a t! Its non greasy but very moisturising. It keeps my face moisturised throughout the day and I don’t have to use it again. It comes in a long bottle with a nozzle and blue cap on top. Its consistency is not too runny but still not thick. It works fine under compact. It is very easy to carry and has a nice subtle fresh fragrance. But it does not have any SPF. So I have to use a sunscreen separately. Its from Johnson and Johnson which is a trusted brand world over. It is very reasonably priced at rs.80 for 100ml bottle. Also available in 50ml bottle for rs40. Will happily repurchase it all my life.

Next is Hamdard’s Roghan Badam Shirin:

What the pack says: 100% pure sweet almond oil. Strengthens brain and nerves, is a nutrient, improves body strength and removes constipation in a natural way. It

  • Relieves tension
  • Strengthens brain power (the pack mentions this twice, so it better ☺ )
  • Good for heart
  • Relieves constipation
  • Fights dandruff
  • Keeps body warm in winters
  • Nourishes skin
  • Prenatal/ post natal care
  • Helps build stronger bones
  • Good for infants.

How to use: 5-10 ml to be taken with 250 ml milk at night. And apply externally on head and instill 2-3 drops in the nose and ears
My Experience: Ok I have used this product for a while now and I have to say that it works. I use this product as a hair oil only. Its not very sticky. It doesn’t smell bad like other hair oils. Although I haven’t noticed any extraordinary sheen in my hair but my hair does look healthy. The damage due to heat on my hair is definitely less visible now. I have smoother hair.

Almond oil adds lustre to the hair making them healthy. I have been told by a dermatologist that almond oil is suits all skin types. So no need to worry about how it will react on your skin type. Sweet almond oil is one of the most popular essential oils used in aromatherapy. Pure almond oil can be used as carrier oil in aromatherapy and various types of massage therapies. Also almond oil is known to lighten dark circles.
It comes in a glass bottle of 25ml for rs75.

Revlon touch and glow Advanced Fairness Under eye Repair Cream

What the pack says: ok honestly I have thrown away the pack. But the tube says:

Revlon touch and glow Advanced Fairness Under eye Repair Cream
Revlon touch and glow Advanced Fairness Under eye Repair Cream
  • Fades away dark circles and spots
  • Reduces puffiness
  • Moisturises and brightens the eye area

My Experience: Its been more than a month now that I have been religiously using this product, twice a day. And sadly I haven’t seen much difference in my dark circles. The texture is creamy and takes time to seep into your skin. It does create that stretchiness for some time after it is applied. This is the first product that I have used for my dark circles and it didn’t work . 🙁
My friend uses this product as moisturiser on the eye area before using eye primer and it works for her. But I guess you don’t need to buy the product for just that.

Revlon touch and glow Advanced Fairness Under eye Repair Cream
It comes in a tube with a nozzle making it easy to use and easy to carry around. This tube of 15gm costs rs140. I am definitely not buying this again.

Parachute Advansed Therapie Hair Vitaliser Hair Fall Control, Root Healing Complex

Parachute Advansed Therapie Hair Vitaliser Hair Fall Control, Root Healing Complex
Parachute Advansed Therapie Hair Vitaliser Hair Fall Control, Root Healing Complex

What the Pack says: an oil based vitaliser that heals damaged roots and controls hair fall.
Ingredients: Coconut oil, mineral oil, isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Myristate, vegetable Protein Mix, Sorbitan Oleate, fragrance, Herbal blend (Hibiscus, Amla, Brahmi), Mineral blend (zinc, Copper), Vitamins E and B
Why does hair fall happen?
Stress, pollution, improper diet, hormonal imbalances, poor quality of water and ageing can all damage hair roots and cause hair fall.
How does Parachute Advansed Therapie Hair Vitaliser work?
Its unique Root Healing Complex is a blend of essential proyeins, herbs, vitamins and minerals that penetrates deep into the roots and controls hair fall.
How to use: Massage overnight. Use three times a week. See results in 45 days.
My Experience: I found this to be very effective. My hair fall problem is not hereditary. So I dnt know of this will work for someone with hereditary hair fall problem. I use this twice a week and it works fine. I have noticed less hairfall even before 45 days. It is not as sticky as the normal parchute oil. However it has a very strong smell which I HATE! but as long as this is working for me I will keep on using it. ( so much for good hair!)

It comes in a 190 ml for Rs190. The packaging is nice and convenient to use.

    My brother bought this Parachute therapy, it didn’t work for him at all, he used like 3 bottles , but still didn’t work for him

    Is it almond oil better than Baja almond oil?

  2. Almond oil is great for your face too… if you use 2-4 drops on your face , massage for like 5 minutes, you will wake up in the morning with an amazing glowwwww !!

  3. hi Ashima , Great review. Abt the under eyes cream try lotus nutraeye gel ,it works ..else there is an alternative product which surprised me when i used it….VASELINE PETROLEUM JELLY. I out of curiosity tried it as a make up remover… and well rubbed some into my eyes and voila the following day morning my eyes looked well normal and rested…so well u might wanna give it a try…

  4. HI Clean and Clear is my fav fave moisturizer too..Its the best..for oily skin or pimple prone skin..Using for years..You should try their soap too if you are very pimple prone.. :yes:

  5. Great reviews Aashima!! :yes: :yes: ..I’ve used Revlon Touch and Glow face cream and it worked wonders for me. Never tried their dark circles range….I think all these dark circle creams don’t suit everyone….coz I didn’t get any results from garnier dark circles cream, even though it worked well for others!! :-/ :-/ :-/ ..

    And me too used to loveeee clean and clear so much, had been using it religiously till last year….But, I discontinued it after knowing that it is G&G’s product and they test on animals!! :-(( :-(( :-(( :-((

  6. Aashima, I have been using this Almond Oil for dark circles & it works well. The parachute oil didn’t work for me! Welcome to Ulite Aashima, you’ll enjoy visting the site & this is the first site I visit everyday. :yes:

  7. I love Rogan Badam…it is so non sticky and makes my hair very healthy…..and it is great as a skin moisturizer too….I used to drink it in milk too…..tastes bad but I am sure it helps the body though I did not continue the ritual long enough to see any differences……but it did help my hair when I needed it most so I simply love it…….

  8. @Ansh, Rati, Reks: thanx 🙂
    @Bhumika: thanks.ya i bought it recently.
    @Cali: THanks…n i didnt know about the animal testing! which moisturiser do you use these days then?
