Recently I was seeing a lot of hype about this brand ‘MCaffeine’ in the beauty community and i decided to give it a shot.
MCaffeine is India’s first caffeine infused personal care brand and that is what intrigued me even more.
Caffeine is not only a mind booster but it also has great benefits for improving your skin and hair. How? Here are some ways:
- Fights free radicals
- Soothes inflammation
- Reduces under eye dark circles
- Repairs UV damage
- Treatment for hairloss
- Stimulates hair growth
To test out i picked up the ‘MCaffeine Uplift Trance Caffeine Face Cream’. Did it live upto my expectations? Keep reading to find out.
What the brand claims:
- Moisturizing face cream to hydrate your face all day long.
- The cream fights free radicals to give that everlasting fresh glow to your face.
- Invigorating green apple fragrance.
- Paraben free. Not tested on animals.
Price: Rs. 349 for 50ml (Available only in one size)
Buy it from Nykaa.com
Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Caffeine, Licorice extract, Calendula extract, Sea weed, Glycerine, Cream base, Aqua, Approved preservatives/fragrance/color.
The product comes in a transparent glass tub with silver screw open cap. It is packed inside a deep pink cardboard box along with a small wooden spatula.
It is a white coloured cream. The consistency is neither too thin nor too thick.
The fragrance is quite mild and refreshing although it is far away from the claimed green apple fragrance.
My Experience with ‘MCaffeine Uplift Trance Caffeine Face Cream’:
I am not a big fan of this packaging. First because it is a tub which is pretty unhygienic to use. I always prefer tube or a pump over tub Packaging. I agree that they have put in some thoughts into this aspect and provided a wooden spatula to scoop out the product but that’s not the most convenient option as per me.
Secondly, because it is glass tub, i always have a fear of it slipping from my hands. Also, because it is glass it feels a bit bulky and definitely not the best option to travel with.
I use this cream every morning. It gets absorbed in the skin immediately leaving it soft and smooth. It is lightweight and feels almost like a gel on the skin. I love the fragrance as it is very refreshing and subtle. However it does not stay for long.
It mattifies the face and does not feel greasy at all. I have dry skin but not extremely dry, so throughout the day too my face doesn’t feel oily or shiny. I usually apply a BB cream on daily basis on top of this cream and i have noticed that it helps my BB cream to stick to my face better.
Overall, i like this cream as a daily lightweight day cream and would definitely recommend it to all skin types.
Note: if a product suits someone it will not necessarily suit you as well. Hence It is advisable to always do a patch test before using a product.
