Plum Goodness Day Cream with SPF 30 Review - Goodness to start your Day

How do you expect a Day cream to be ?

This is a very tricky question and the answer varies depending on the skin type. If someone asks me this, my answer would be that an ideal day dream should be  light weight, slightly runny, quick absorbing that provides hydration as well as UV protection in summers. While in winters, I would prefer a more thicker and a more nourishing cream which would provide the necessary moisture to my skin.

Some times I just dab on some sunscreen and use a matte powder on top of it for a quick fix, but it does not stay for long. My skin turns oily and sticky very quickly on such days which really puts me off. Though my skin is basically dry, sunscreens are not my cup of tea and I prefer a day cream that has SPF in it and keeps me fresh the whole day.

I have been trying Plum Goodness Light-stay Day cream with SPF 30 for the last one month and I have my opinion on it today for you :

Grape seed oil
Oil from grape seeds has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. And Vitamin E is a great antioxidant for your skin, helpful in preventing sun damage. Besides grape seed oil is also rich in other vitamins and beta carotene, stuff that keeps the skin young-looking. BTW, grape seed oil is also great for cooking!

Sea buckthorn oil

Helps heal micro-level skin damage from exposure to the elements. With over 190 phyto-nutrients, Sea Buckthorn Oil is called “Life Oil” by the Tibetans who regard it as a powerful wonder oil for internal and external use.


We have chosen widely accepted, commonly used sunscreens and a tiny bit of mineral sunblock here – no rocket science, really. PABA went out of favor as a sunscreen long back, and should stay that way.

Packaging of Plum Goodness Light Stay Day Cream :

The cream comes in a squeeze type plastic tube which is very very useful for storage as well as usage.I store it vertically with the nozzle facing down so that the product comes out easily during removal.The outer packaging is quite sturdy and is travel friendly since the lid too sits tightly.It has the text Plum Goodness printed on one side and all other details like usage, ingredients & benefits printed on other side.

Plum Goodness Light Stay Day Cream with SPF 30 texture & usage :

The plum goodness light stay day cream has quite a thick & creamy consistency which demands quick blending into the skin. The cream blends into the skin in a minute and does not create any white patches. It has a pleasant smell that reminds me of Fair n Lovely a little and the smell is appealing. Once applied, it takes about few minutes to get absorbed into the skin and in the mean time, I sweat a lot near my nose bridge & upper lip area.I need to keep wiping the sweat till the cream gets absorbed completely which kind of puts me down. 

The cream does not feel heavy or cakey on the skin and keeps your face oil free for about 3 hours after which it feels oily on the T zone.My face feels soft after I use the cream and I just apply powder on top of it on normal days.

It is a good product that gives you sun protection as well as prevents wrinkles without harsh effects of chemicals. The only thing I disliked is the sweating that it causes as soon as applied.
