Some of my readers had asked about a good anti-ageing cream for oily, combination skin. Most of the anti-ageing creams available in the markets are thick, heavy and meant for mature, dry skin. However, its good to start an anti-ageing regime in your twenties itself. The sooner, the better. But in your twenties, you might be kinda hesitant to try out anti-ageing creams which contains powerful chemicals like retinol, resveratrol, ceramides, collagen boosters, etc. And there is no need to start with such powerful ingredients in your twenties. So a good alternative is using a natural anti-ageing cream, preferably an ayurvedic one. Yes, ayurveda has remedies for anti-ageing too. Also, in your twenties, your skin will be more on the oily-combination side. So its better to look for a gel-based anti-ageing cream (which is rare to find). The search ends here! Yes, today, I will be reviewing the Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream. Let’s see how it fares.

The packaging of Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream is to die for 😍! Just look at the luxurious golden, square tub with a transparent base that gives a glass-like look and you will want to buy this cream just for that! The golden lid closes with a satisfying click, so its travel friendly as well. The tub looks so pretty sitting on my dressing shelf and adds a luxury touch to my shelf 😀 .
Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream has a slight pinkish tint and the consistency is like a gel-cream. I love creams which are pink in color as somehow I get a feeling I might get baby pink skin on using it 😅. It has an ayurvedic herbal smell which is mild and not overpowering.
Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream is light and fluffy in texture and gets absorbed in a jiffy. It doesn’t make face oily or greasy. Due to the presence of aloe vera, it is water-based and not oil-based. So its a great option for oily and combination skin people. Since I have dry skin, I feel it doesn’t moisturize my skin adequately. So before applying this, I use the Blue Nectar Shubhr Facial Oil which I have reviewed earlier.
With continuous use for about 3 weeks, I can feel my skin is firmer, radiant and youthful. So the anti-ageing claims are indeed true. However, I haven’t noticed any effect on fine lines on my forehead. I feel that the cream has to be more moisturizing and nourishing for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
So I would say Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream is a great option for those in twenties with oily, combination skin who are looking for a good, lightweight, anti-ageing cream. Since its natural and ayurvedic, you can use it safely. However if your skin is more mature with fine lines and wrinkles, it might not work for you.
Coming to the ingredients list, it has an amazing combination of ayurvedic herbs – saffron, sandalwood, liquorice, manjistha , rose, etc – all good for the skin. I was especially interested about the plum oil as I haven’t seen it any other creams yet. As I love plums for eating 😊
The price is little higher, but you can get it in Amazon or Flipkart at a good discount. Check below for the links. Also you need only a small quantity each time, so one tub will last long.
Also, they have two variants for the cream – one for women and one for men – which I think is great.
Does it satisfy its claims?
Yes. It does make skin firmer and protects initial ageing signs. Fights dull skin and makes skin radiant and youthful. But I haven’t noticed any effect on fine lines or wrinkles as claimed.
What I like?
* Paraben-free and silicone-free.
* Light gel-cream texture which gets absorbed easily.
* Doesn’t make skin oily or greasy.
* Makes skin firmer, radiant and youthful.
* Fights and protects skin from initial signs of ageing.
* Contains 14 ayurvedic herbs including plum oil.
* Beautiful luxurious packaging.
* Comes in two variants – for men and women.
What I don’t like?
Would I recommend?
Yes, for oily and combination skin.
Would I repurchase?
No, since I have dry skin. But I would like to try other variants of cream from Blue Nectar.
Value for money?
Price is little higher. But if you are looking for a natural, ayurvedic solution to ageing, there aren’t many brands catering to it. So I would say its worth it.
IBeautySpy Rating: 4.5/5
Overall, I would say Blue Nectar Shubhr Anti Ageing Flower Valley Cream is a good option for those who are starting out on an anti-ageing skin care routine. It prevents and protects the skin from signs of ageing. There aren’t many anti-ageing creams in the market that cater to oily, combination skin and also fully natural and ayurvedic. So I would recommend this to those with oily, combination skin.
So that’s all folks! Hope this review was helpful to you. Also don’t forget to check out my review of Blue Nectar Shubhr Facial Oil which is one of the most affordable facial oils you can find in the market. You can check reviews of all Blue Nectar products here.
