Colorbar recently launched their new skin care & I got hold of few products from the line. I guess for me Colorbar is not a budget brand anymore & has managed to venture into high end version with some superb launches afresh carrying hefty price tags looking at their previous product pricings. Nevertheless I am totally loving the variations they trying to incorporate into their ever increasing range with these fabulous products. Today I will be reviewing the moisturising lotion from skin care range.
The packaging is very chic & attractive with a pearly white bottle & silver twist up cap along with a retractable pump dispenser.I am glad that colorbar opted for pump dispensers or sprays with the range rather than squeezable tubes for the better accessibility over the product quantity. The bottle is housed in a sturdy white cardboard box packaging with all the product details mentioned. Though the packaging is simple but gives a sophisticated & luxurious feel.
It has got a superlight emollient creamy texture. I went to buy the cream version of the moisturizer for my dry skin but unfortunately it was not available. The lotion blends in superfast giving a matte finish on the skin though I like to have some dewiness in my skin care products. It does make skin smoother & softer providing an easy slip for the makeup to be followed. Despite of being a lighter formula it moisturises my dry skin well for the complete day. I don’t feel the urge of reapplication before 6-7 hours which is commendable. I just need two pumps of this in the morning along with my primer & I am sorted for most of the day. Also though Colorbar don’t make super extra ordinary high claims with this lotion and not to forget they didn’t even mention the SPF content (rather saying sun filters), I find it really pricey for a regular day care light weight moisturizer. I didn’t find any improvement in lasting power of my makeup with this as mentioned by the brand. Not sure of how it will flare in terms of oil control as I got a dry skin. I tried this with my Korres anti-ageing primer & loved the overall finish. It has got a mild fragrance which further dilutes post blending without any irritating olfactory senses.
In a nutshell it’s a good everyday skin care moisturizer with basic sun protection apt for all skin types. It’s not too thick or mild but gives a perfect moisture boost to skin leaving it soft & smooth with a matte finish providing a good base for the makeup to follow.
