Favorite Skincare Products of 2012

2012 was a year of experiments .. I experimented a lot with skincare, makeup and haircare products, some were hits others were fail .. Here are the products I loved in skincare and have repurchased already. I have already reviewed them and will paste a link to the post below each picture.

Burt’s Bees’ Lip Balm was surprising product for me. I had always heard so many good things about it that i couldn’t let it slip when I visited Sephora, though it costed a bomb! It keeps my lips hydrated without making them all shiny and sticky. It doesn’t sit on the top of skin, it sinks in quickly. So No more chapped lips for me this winter!!!! It costs 400 Rs at Sephora but you can buy it much cheaper from ebay!

Jergens Shea Butter Body Lotion

I have always used body butters from The Body Shop but this year I decided to skip and purchased Jergens Shea Butter Body Lotion. I must confess that I am in love with its fragrance and formula ! I have dry skin and this one lotion keeps it hydrated whole day long! It doesn’t feel sticky or greasy. This costs almost 1/4 what TBS used to cost me .. I guess its around 250 INR for 230 ml. I would highly recommend this one product to girls with dry skin!

I tried number of night creams like Organic Surge Night Cream, Kama Ayurveda Rejuvenating & Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream & Marks & Spencer Pure Night Cream but none of them were my favorites as they all lack something here and there. I have dry skin and I am looking for a super rich night cream which doesn’t leave my skin dry and patchy next morning. My hunt is on and might end this month as I am targeting Shiseido & Clinique, lets see which one I find better.

I will post my favorite haircare products in next post.

Let me know if you all have suggestions for a good night cream for dry skin !
