The skincare industry is booming and we’ve so many new brands coming in India that it can get confusing to choose a brand. Sometimes it’s important to take a trip down memory lane, which is what happened to me with Charmis. If you grew up in the 90s, chances are that you too remember the pink Charmis Cold Cream Jar and the floral fragrance. Charmis is now back, with its legendary fragrance intact, with its Deep Radiance Range. Today I’m going to share my review with you. Let’s get started…
Charmis Deep Radiance Vitamin C Face Serum, Rs 210
When it comes to skincare ingredients or serum, Vitamin C is a buzzword. Vitamin C is a holy grail ingredient in the world of skin brightening since it’s known to reduce the appearance of dark spots and even add a natural glow to your skin. So I was quite amazed to see Charmis Deep Radiance Vitamin C Face Serum’s price point which is Rs 210 for 30 ml. Although the clinical tests are not completely clear to me, I was happy to see the Charmis Face Serum is clinically tested to work deep with 15 layers of the skin.
In terms of texture, it’s really light and glides on easily, keeping your skin looking nourished and hydrated. You can use it after cleansing, toning and applying face cream & sunscreen after.
When it comes to the key ingredients in this face serum, it includes Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Salicylic Acid. When it comes to a vitamin C serum, it’s always better to combine it with Hyaluronic Acid especially for dry skin and this brightening skin serum does just that. It also has salicylic acid, a BHA acid which is commonly used to reduce excessive skin sebum & acne-causing bacteria. The container is opaque so it protects the formula from sunlight and that means this product will last even if you don’t use it every day.
Charmis Deep Radiance Hand Cream, Rs 180 for 150 g
I don’t think hand creams were given enough credit or attention till the time we all found ourselves doing the dishes, and sanitising our hands during this global pandemic. With personal hygiene, using hand sanitizer and the AC (yes, the air conditioner can potentially dry your skin up), adding an affordable hand cream like Charmis Deep Radiance Hand Cream is a good idea.
Enriched with the goodness of Hyaluronic Acid (attracts & binds moisture), it also has Retinyl Palmitate, essentially Retinol, which helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles as well as Niacinamide (a form of Vitamin B) which helps brighten skin. Even though it is a non-sticky formula, I’d suggest you apply this hand cream generously to feel its full benefits.
Charmis Deep Radiance Vitamin C Face Wash, Rs 180 for 150 ml
Charmis Deep Radiance Face Wash is formulated with the goodness of the skincare power trio—Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Salicylic Acid. It’s also proven to wash off 99.9% acne-causing bacteria and also revives and hydrates dull skin making it the perfect addition to your cleansing routine.
Please note: all products have fragrance in them so if you have sensitive skin, you may want to consider this information before using any of the products. Also, since this range has Vitamin C, it’s imperative that you apply a broad spectrum sunscreen when adding these products to your beauty routine.
