REVIEW: Plum (Mattifying Moisturizer & Light-stay Day Cream)

Plum recently sent across two products from their range and I must say, I am absolutely in love with one of them! So much so, that it has become a part of my daily regime! The two products were: Plum green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer and SPF 30 Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Light-stay Day Cream. These are perfect for the summers as well as winters as they’re light and give your skin the protection that it needs. Here’s what they look like:


  • Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer (INR 450)


Plum claims, “Silicone-free, matte-finish moisturizer with hand-picked non-comedogenic ingredients. Daily pleasant after-feel, non-shiny finish and acne combat. This is just the light moisturizer that oily skin types had been waiting for. Multi-dimensional care that includes: controlled hydration, non-shiny matte finish, acne (pimples) combat and a fresh, clear appearance.”

Why Plum thinks you should buy this:
♥ Light, matte finish moisturizer especially formulated for oily skin
♥ Glycolic acid helps keep skin clear
♥ Green tea extracts act against the acne formation process
♥ 100% silicone-free, non-comedogenic ingredients
♥ Paraben-free, SLS-free, phthalate-free, as always

Directions for use: Gently apply required quantity on face and neck once or twice a day, after cleansing and toning face. Avoid using foundation or compact that can clog pores.


My Take On this Product: 

True to it’s claim, this Moisturizer gives a matte-finish. It doesn’t shine or steal the show, it simply provides a matte base for the rest of your make-up. Having normal to oily skin, I can definitely say that this product does not feel greasy and is very light, which is a boon for people with oily skin! It hydrates your skin and also protects it from dust and other harmful things. This product feels soft and gets absorbed as soon as you apply it. You do not need to wait for even 2 minutes before you can apply your primer or foundation layer! Fast and smooth, this has definitely become my number 1 brand for Matte Moisturizers! Also, Green Tea extracts and glycolic acid keep skin healthy and prevent oxidative stress that can cause acne. Basically, this can be used before make-up or you can just stay at home with this moisturizer on to let your skin hydrate – either way, this product works great and you feel like you have nothing on your skin! This product is definitely a 5 on 5.


  • SPF 30 Grape Seed and Sea Buck-thorn Light-stay Day Cream (INR 475)


Plum claims, The perfect combination of sun protection, everyday hydration and nourishment. Blends in with a whisk, stays light, stays long. No whiteness, no patches. Protect your skin from sun darkening and damage. Long-lasting SPF 30 protection with healing sea buck-thorn oil & nourishing grape seed oil. This Light Stay Day Cream is the perfect blend of natural protection, light texture and pleasant skin feel!

Suitable for the following skin types:
– Normal
– Dry
– Combination


Why Plum thinks you should buy this:

♥ Potent combination of SPF30, grape seed oil and sea buckthorn oil
♥ Light, non-greasy formula absorbs very well. No white patches on skin
♥ Pleasant fragrance. Not overpowering
♥ Purse-friendly packaging
♥ Paraben-free, phthalate-free, as always

Directions for use: Apply on neck and face every morning. Reapply before stepping out into the sun if after 4 hours of initial application.

My Take On this Product: 

True to its claim, this product has a very soothing fragrance. It is not overpowering and certainly does not give any headaches. While this product is not good for ones with oily skin, it can be used by all other skin types. With SPF 30, antioxidants in sea buckthorn oil keeps skin sun-protected. One of the best natural anti-oxidants known in skin care, it helps prevent sun damage to skin. Oil from grape seeds has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil which is also great for the skin! The product is fairly light and you won’t feel heavy after applying this product. It isn’t greasy and does not make your skin look oily, which is great! I love how this product, after a few hours of wearing, does not lead to whiteness or patching. I hate it when products do that! I would say the product roughly stays for a good 2-3 hours and if you’re out or going out again, a re-application wouldn’t hurt. The light texture feels soft to the skin and the product takes about 5-8 seconds to absorb which is great. Not currently a part of my daily regime but definitely worth 4 out of 5!
These were the 2 products I received last week and thought I’d review them for you! Just yesterday I received 3 more products that Plum sent for my US Trip to keep my skin safe, which will be reviewed once I’m back from US! Thank you again, for these amazing products, Plum.
