Plum Grape Seed & Sea Buckthorn Light Stay Day Cream and Nurturance Night Cream | Review

Sometimes, I buy skincare products on a whim and the Plum Grape Seed & Sea Buckthorn Light Stay Day Cream was such an impulsive buy. Even though this day cream is best suited for dry skin, I bought it regardless of the fact that my skin is oily to combination, thinking that it will be a nice treat for the winter days ahead. Luckily, this cream suited my skin like a dream, so much so that I immediately placed an order for the Nurturance Night Cream from the same range as well. Usually, I’m not too matchy-matchy about my day and night skincare routine but using these two products in conjunction has worked quite well for my skin and here is how.

The day cream has a thick consistency, as opposed to the lotions from Plum, and is also pretty creamy. It spreads fairly easily on the skin though and you only need a few dots of the product to cover the entire face. It has a slight oiliness to it, but not in a bad way – more like the lightweight oiliness of serums. Also, this does not create a thick film on the face and gets absorbed fairly quickly, leaving the skin hydrated and glowing but not greasy. I love the fact that this cream has SPF 30, which I need at the moment because I am starting to incorporate Vitamin C in my skincare regimen. Overall, this cream is the perfect product for the cold season ahead when you need to give a little extra nourishment to your parched skin. It seems like the product replenishes the natural oils of the face without causing excessive oiliness and the cream should suit all skin types except extremely oily skin.

The night cream from the range is also extremely nourishing without being heavy on the skin and sinks into the face beautifully. Along with many natural oils, the product also contains sea buckthorn extracts which are supposed to be an excellent source of Omega 7 fatty acids which repair the skin, while the grape seed oil acts as a powerful anti-oxidant. The only thing I don’t like about this night cream is the bulky glass jar which is not travel-friendly at all. I wish that this product had a more compact packaging like the convenient tube of the day cream. The day cream and the night cream can be purchased as a combo pack for INR 1000 (current discounted price is INR 815), which seems pretty affordable to me for the quality of the products.

All the Plum products are paraben-free, phthalate-free and SLS-free and are also extremely gentle on the skin. I love these mild yet effective skincare products that have a faint fragrance that uplifts my mood in the morning and at night. So if you are someone who is planning to pamper your skin a little bit extra during the winter months then do give this range a shot.

Tvakh Antioxidant Age Defying Day Complex| Review

Skincare is very important for women of all age, starting from teenagers, but the most critical time to pay attention to your skin is between the ages of 25-30, to beat those wrinkles and age spots to oblivion even before they begin to appear! This is why I have recently become more interested in anti-aging ingredients and products and the Tvakh Antioxidant Age Defying Day Complex is the latest addition to my arsenal.

Tvakh Antioxidant Age Defying Day Complex| Review

This day cream contains Omega 3 Fatty Acids that protect the skin from photo-aging caused by exposure to sunlight. It also contains powerful anti oxidants such as white mulberry, beta carotene, and wheat germ along with Vitamin C and Vitamin E to reduce pore size, eliminate fine lines and improve the overall texture of the skin.

Personally, I found the texture of this day cream to be very unique. It looks thick and creamy in the jar, which had me a little worried because I have oily skin, but upon application, it literally glided on my skin and was absorbed within seconds. It leaves the skin super hydrated but non-greasy, and is suitable for all skin types, although people with extremely oily skin may find it a tad bit heavy. However, I am someone with fairly oily skin but did not find the formula oily or sticky. The product leaves the skin feeling smoother, softer, and tighter from the very first use, and this tightening action is what one needs to reduce pore size and eliminate wrinkles. Although this cream looks slightly beige in the packaging, it goes on completely sheer on the skin, and call me crazy but I actually feel that it smells like sweet milk 😛 I quite enjoy the scent because it makes me feel like I have treated my skin with something luxurious.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the performance of this product and do not have anything negative to say about it. I have been using it on and off for some time now and have noticed that my skin has become slightly smoother and brighter. I am sure that with daily use, the results will be even more noticeable. Priced at INR 625 for a 100gm jar, I feel that this product is quite affordable for what it does to the skin. It is also free of parabens and phthalates and is not tested on animals. This product has definitely left me impressed and has piqued my interest in more products from Tvakh. I will surely be trying out more skincare from the brand and will be reporting back to you about each product. In the mean time, if you want something to battle the aging caused by environmental factors and, well, your age, then this product is something you must try.
