2. Clean and Clear Fairness Cream
Clean and Clear Fairness Cream is mostly suited for oily skin. The cream contains UV filters and gives a kind of matt finish to the skin. Above all it does not clog pores and just a bean size amount is sufficient per application.

Price is Rs. 120 for 40gms.
3. Lotus Herbals White glow skin whitening and brightening skin emulsion
