i think Neutrogena and garnier are pretty common here too. for the aloe gel, i love the lakme one but it comes with a strong fragrance. rose water is pretty common and you get it from normal brands like dabur to luxury brands like kama Ayurveda. also if I am exfoliating, i use a salicylic acid cleanser by cipla which is a pharma company and not a skincare brand! also love brands like sugandha, Himalaya and Forest essentials

i usually prefer a lightweight gel, and I put it on damp skin right after cleansing and let it dry naturally! i use aloe vera because it gives me a cooling sensation!

actually yes. the gel is use is extremely lightweight so I put the gel on damp skin after cleanser, wait for it to dry naturally and then apply the rose water

Hi Urja 😊 do you use a moisturizer?

yeah! depends on the aloe gel though. some brands moisturize too, so don't use it. the one I am currently using is kinda dry, so I put a little bit of my nivea body milk. added to the post thanks!
