  1. Hey girls!
    I am writing to find out if the vasanti face bases and foundations are reaally good. I hear they are made for Asian skin tones.Being Indian I am having a tuff time finding the right foundation.Most of them are either too chalky or ashy or pinky, do u have any advice for skin tones like mine?Could you also, may be do a review on vasanti foundation please?

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Achara! We'll definitely do a post on suitable foundations soon so check back!

  3. what is the best facial moisturizer? I have tried MANY and I keep breaking out with tiny bumps all over my face....thanks!


  4. Trupti, the best one I've used is Cetaphil moisturizing lotion. If you're looking for one with SPF, try Oil of Olay UV complete or Garnier Nutritioniste facial moisturizer with SPF.

    Those tiny bumps you're experiencing is not necessarily acne, it maybe you're allergic to something in the moisturizer you're using. Sometimes you have to try a few brands out before you find one that works for you. Cetaphil is the brand most dermatologists recommend if you have sensitive skin, give it a try. They make an SPF version for daytime use too, but I was allergic to the sunscreen they used in it, and it made my eyes sting. I use Olay during the day now,and Cetaphil at night. Can't say enough about Cetaphil, even my babies use it, it's that gentle.
