TBC 24 Ct. Gold Honey & Almond Winter Care Nourishing Cream


Hello Chicsters!




It's Pallavi here! Even though winter has just arrived, my dry skin has began to take a toll on me. I am always in search of rich creams that will take care of my dryness woes. Rich winter creams are extremely sticky and end up making you look like an oil field. So, I mostly opt for winter creams for night time and for day time I just stick to light but moisturizing face creams.

Recently I was done with my Pond’s night cream and was looking for some new night cream to try. So I ended up going Ayurvedic and tried this TBC 24 Ct. Gold Honey & Almond Winter Care Nourishing Cream. Mostly, I just trust high end and drugstore brands but never went ahead with the ayurvedic ones so I was quite excited to try it.
