Hope you guys are having a nice time on WiseShe, because I am loving it here.Today I would be reviewing the Kaya Nourishing Day cream.
I had been looking for aÂ moisturiser that would help meÂ combat the problemÂ ofÂ dark spotsÂ & dullness. Previously I had used Revlon touch & glow mattifying cream butÂ it wasn’t moisturising enough, I tried the clean & clear oil balancing moisturiser, it didn’t help me with dark spots. I spotted this on an online store, I was tempted to buy it because itÂ saidÂ Nourishing Day Cream. I get tempted to try products that sayÂ nourishing, hydrating, oxygenating..& thisÂ one had a very impressive product description, let’s see what it says…
About Kaya Nourishing Day Cream:-
Nourishing day cream with a unique potent whitening active Azelic acid works to give you notably lighter & brighter skin. Anti-oxidant Vitamin C helps fight free radicals & improve skin texture. UV protection system protects skin against harmful effects of UV rays. Regular use gives you visible results in just 7 days.
Directions for use: Apply to thoroughly cleansed face & neck. Massage gently in upward & outward direction.
Since the day cream comes in a cylindrical bottle, I have taken two imagesÂ so that the ingredient list isÂ more legible.
Price & Quantity: Rs 990/- for 50 ml.
My experience with Kaya Nourishing Day Cream:
Packaging: It comes in a sturdy opaqueÂ white bottle within an externalÂ transparent bottle. It has pumpÂ dispenser with a transparent lid. The bottle looks quite classy, the cap fits easily &Â tightly. It is a very strong bottle & won’t break easily, the pump dispenser is smooth but it isÂ quite bulky & heavy.Â It is not convenient to beÂ carried around in a purse.
Texture & Fragrance: The cream isÂ soft & glides on smoothly, it’s consistency is between a cream & lotion.Â It has a syntheticÂ fragrance not to my liking, there is a mild alcoholic smell but nothing too bothersome as it doesn’t linger.
I purchased this DayÂ cream since it containsÂ ingredients like Azelic acid & VitaminÂ C which are safe & effective atÂ skin lightening. I did not mind shelling out so much money because Kaya is a reputed company & I hadÂ high expectations from them, though I had used their Cleansing gel & Sunscreen with very average results, I still had hopes from this one…
IÂ have been using this cream from the past 6 weeks & have had a mixed experience with it. The creamÂ spreads easily & evenly, it is instantlyÂ moisturising. It does not leave a whitish cast, & getsÂ absorbed quite effortlessly but can make the skin greasy even if a littleÂ over applied.Â There is no instant brightening or glow,Â neither does it impart a matte finish, so a compact is a must for me. It does require a touch up every two hours once or my skin starts to look dull & oily specially the T-zone.Â I would require more frequent touch upsÂ during hotÂ & humid climate.
Though it does not show immediate results, with regular usage it has helped in improving my skin tone. MyÂ face looks brighter whenever I use it, but even if I miss a single dayÂ my skin isÂ back to square one. I haven’t noticed a significant difference on the dark spots, butÂ they seem to fading slowly.
This is definitely notÂ a miraculousÂ cream as claimed, but it has worked muchÂ quicker than the others on my stubbornÂ dark spots which just would not budge with anyÂ other cream.
What I like about Kaya Nourishing Day Cream:-
- Sturdy & neatÂ packaging.
- Worked on my stubborn dark spots.
- Very moisturising.
What I don’t like about Kaya Nourishing Day Cream:-
- No immediate skinÂ brightening.
- Contains loads of chemicals.
- Requires exact amount of application.
- Needs frequent touch ups.
- Not travel friendly.
VERDICT: It is a good moisturiser & will mostly be suited forÂ combination skin during dry weathers, but not otherwise. It may not provide enoughÂ hydration for dry skin & can make oily skin further slick. I cannot use it as a day cream because itÂ leads to greasiness, I would continue to use it only at home since it hasÂ worked on blemishes, but for the costÂ it’s not worthÂ repurchasing. In my opinion Kaya products are grossly overpriced.
My quest for an effective & pocket friendly Day cream still continues!
Hope this review helped you all.
