Review: FabIndia Skin Hydrating Cream Vitamin E for Oily Skin

A moisturizer for oily skin is not an easy find. I grew up thinking there is no need for me to apply moisturizer since I have oily skin. However, I was told otherwise and should always use it to keep my skin from over-producing sebum.

While working inside the beauty industry I got to learn a lot from estheticians and make-up artists. One valuable information, that I learnt , which I  would like to share with you is that your skin can be dehydrated even if its oily. 

An oily skin means : skin produces extra sebum which is why your face tends to look shiny after a while.

A dehydrated skin means : lack of moisture in your skin. 

So you can have an oily and dehydrated skin altogether. This is the combination I suffered with for a while yet I was not aware of it. I have been dealing with dehydrated, oily and acne prone skin which in itself is a deadly combination. #Bummer

After realizing the situation, I tried moisturizers tackling my skin condition. The first that I used was Dermalogica’s Active Moist which I loved and would do a post about it later. Once I got back to India, finding Dermalogica products in Delhi became an issue ( unless I ordered it online). This made me go on a search mode to find the right moisturizer. 

Then came along FabIndia for rescue. Skin Hydrating Cream : Vitamin E for Oily Skin. This product is amazing at what it claims. shc fab india

The product claims “ An extremely light, moisture whipped cream loaded with age controlling cellular extracts and Vitamin E. It nourishes the skin and protects it against moisture loss.”

Application & Feel

Application & Feel

Pros:

  • Moisturizes without being too heavy, it is extremely light. However, once applied it takes a minute to soak in the skin completely & leaves no trace.
  • Acne-prone oily skin dreads any moisturizer that could potentially lead into break-outs. This moisturizer has not made my face to be a guesthouse to zits. In short no breakout sessions. 
  • It smells great, especially for mornings. It sort of wakes me up.
  • Lasts for more than two months. I apply it morning and night. Time for New one

Cons:

  • Comes in a tub which means you have to scoop out the product. I would have loved it if it was in a pump bottle. 
  • No spf. In today’s age when we try to have products that do multiple things, this cream would have been a bomb if it provided sun protection. ( Though you would not be able to use it in the night then)

It retails for Rs. 180 for 50 ml and is available in all FabIndia store. 

Would I recommend this product to any oily skin twin? YES, I would. Grab this tub and you would love it.
