December is finally here…Yippie !!! It’s my favorite time of the year because it’s not only my Birthday month but also Christmas. The festive vibes around this time are so contagious. Coming back to today’s post, I will be doing a review cum first impressions of one of the prettiest products launched this year. It’s none other than products from the brand DOT & KEY.  They have an attractive range of pastel-colored products meant to treat issues we tend to miss. By this, I mean dark underarms, chlorine affected hair, foot order, and the list can go on… Today I will be talking about the Underarm Colour Correction Serum and Hand Cream: Sanitizer + Moisturizer from their range.

Packaging 

What I really love the most about this serum is pastel colored packaging. Also, the graphics and the feel of the outer box is super cute. The serum comes in a plastic pump bottle which is good to travel around with.

Description(From Website)

Don’t give up on dark underarms just yet.  This underarm lightening cream serum penetrates deeply to minimize pigmentation and restore the natural even tone of underarm skin.

With zero nasty chemicals, this underarm whitening cream serum is completely safe and gentle on skin. Its carefully formulated skin lightening botanical system contains the goodness of Uva ursi (bearberry) leaf and Paeonia suffruticosa (peony) root which corrects uneven skin tone of dark underarms by significantly deterring the production of melanin without any toxicity or side-effects. It minimizes the area of rigid pigmentation and brightens the complexion, creating an even tone on all skin types. The result? Soft, smooth, evenly toned underarms in a matter of weeks.

Dot & Key products are dermatologist tested, cruelty-free, vegetarian-friendly and free of parabens & sulfates.

Ingredients

Aqua, Caprylyl Methicone & PEG-12 Dimethicone/ PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract & Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract & Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract & Acetyl Tyrosine & Arbutin & Glutathione & Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Arctostaphylos Uva-Ursi Leaf Extract & Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate & Glycerin & Sodium Benzoate & Sodium Metabisulfite, Phenoxyethanol & Methylisothiazolinone, Acrylates Crosspolymer, Parfum, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA

First Impressions 

Like I mentioned before the packaging is super cute. I am so impressed by the efforts put into making the packaging. It looks so insta-worthy. The serum bottle makes my vanity look much cuter. The outer packaging has detailed details and instruction of the products. I like how they have emphasized the fact that they don’t use “Parabens, Sulphates, and all the nasty chemicals” The serum bottle is small which makes it super travel friendly. Also they are cruelty free which instantly makes this brand my favorite.

Texture/Application/Effect 

The texture and consistency of the serum is gel-like runny white liquid.I like how easily it spreads onto the skin. The serum gets quickly absorbed into the skin in no time leaving no trace behind. Post application, skin feels soft smooth and supple. I have used it a couple of times and I did notice a fairly brightening effect on my underarms which is a great deal for my dark underarms(due to waxing). Also the fragrance of the serum is very mild and it barely hits my sensitive senses. It kind off disappears. If there was one thing I wished more of serum, it would be its effect in deodorizing along with the said effects. It would make an amazing combination for my present underarm problems.

Overall 

I am super impressed with the serum from the first usage itself and I would recommend you to try this product at least once i your life.

My Rating 

4.5/5(-0.5 for deodorizing part)

Dot & Key Hand Cream: Sanitizer + Moisturizer

Where to buy? 

You can purchase products directly from their website(Click Here) or you can get it from Flipkart, Nykaa, Amazon, Smytten and so on. I purchased it from Flipkart.

Packaging 

Just like the serum the packaging of this hand cream too is super cute. The outer packaging is a nice sturdy box which can be good for gifting. The hand cream tube is similar to most hand creams out there in the market which is very travel friendly.

Description

If you’ve ever sanitized your hands and cringed at how dry they become, you’re not alone. Good thing is, they’ll never feel that way again – not with Dot & Key Hand Cream doing double duty as hand sanitizer and moisturizer. Its active ingredients kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol free sanitizer formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process. Even better, the jojoba and shea actives it contains intensely nourish your hands so they feel soft and supple.

Infused with calming lavender and zesty peppermint essential oils, it leaves behind a delicately pleasing fragrance, even as it cleanses and hydrates. With its pocket-friendly size, it’s the perfect go-to for pure, baby-soft hands on the go. All Dot & Key products are dermatologist tested and 100% skin safe, Cruelty Free, Vegetarian Friendly and free of nasty chemicals like Parabens, Alcohol, PABA, Phthalates & Sulphates. We assure safe, gentle and effective skincare.

First Impressions 

Apart from the detail descriptions all over the packaging, the soothing color of the hand cream tube is impressive. Like I mentioned before the packaging is super cute. I am so impressed by the efforts put into making the packaging. It looks so insta-worthy.

Texture/Application/Effect 

Unlike most hand creams , the texture of this one is a bit runny. It is light-weight in texture and almost has the consistency of a gel creme. Being a dry skinned beauty my hands tend to get extremely dry. This hand cream is like a savior for me as it moisturizers well and does not leave greasiness behind. Also since this hand cream is also a sanitizer, I feel blessed using it. Normally sanitizers tend to dry out my hands and make it rough. But this does not do the same. The fragrance of this hand-cream is a bit on the stronger side. Although it fairly smells like lavender, it definitely smells a lot like menthol.

Overall 

Again I pretty impressed with the unique products they have in their collection and I would recommend you to try this one as well

My Rating

4/5(-1 for the strong menthol smell)

That’s it from my side. Hope you all reading reading this post have a great day ahead ! Cheers !!!!
