Continous usage gave me a uniformly moistiurized glowing skin that broke out only occassionally due to hormonal changes in the body.

    • Himalaya Fairness cream is not good. I faced too much breakout after I use this cream…..so farther I didn’t used it ..
      You can use Himalaya clarina face gel wash
      …it is too good . It will remove your pimples.

      Use lemon+ honey mask every night for 10 min and then wash your face and use aloevera gel with vit E capsule.

  38. Nice Post ! I used so many cream for my oily skin but I was never satisfied with any cream for my oily skin,

  39. I am using mastani fairness face cream for oily skin last 4 month.this moisturizer has oil controlling properties and also whitens the skin.This gets fast absorbed in the skin and skin feels nonoily. This moisturizer reduces the dark spots, dullness and skin shallowness so that the skin looks radiant and fresh.Buy this product on Amazon.

  40. Thanks for sharing list of products for pimples and acne. I personally, like lacto calamine.

    However, I also feel that, apart from using these products, we can also go for home remedies, which is affordable to do and has long term effect. There is one article on pimple treatment for oily skin in hindi, https://www.popxo.com/2016/02/tips-for-pimple-free-face-hindi/ , which I want to share with you guys so that you can understand the benefit of home remedies and how much effective it is.
