Today I will be sharing my experience using a facial oil from the brand – Auravedic.
Facial oils are the latest hits in skincare science. I always used to think that oils are not for oily/combination skin, only dry skinned people should use them. No, these is facial oil for every skin type. You just have to choose the correct one based on your skin type and concerns. They can do magic to your skin.
Price: This oil is priced at 250 INR for 100 ml of product which is huge! All we need is 2-3 drops of oil to cover the entire face. So you can calculate how many months this 100 ml bottle is going to last for.
The oil comes in a transparent plactic bottle with a golden screw cap. Inside there is one more stopper to prevent spillage. I made a tiny hole to it and it dispenses right amount of product upon squeezing.
The oil is faint yellow in color and I could see some saffron strands floating all over. It smells really refreshing and natural which should not irritate sensitive noses. The texture is runny and non-greasy. It does not feel heavy on my combination skin. It sinks into the skin really quickly without leaving oily/greasy feeling.
Coming to the results it provides. It does claim to work on pigmentation and dark sports, delivering essential nutrients to the upper layer of the skin. Therefore it reveals lighter, brighter and more radiant skin. Since oils are thinner in texture than creams, they can penetrate deeper in to the skin layers and work from within. That is the reason why facial oils are superfood for skin and so popular.
I have been using this oil since more than a month now everyday before hitting the bed. I take 2-3drops on my palm and massage it on my cleansed and toned skin for 2-3 min. I don’t feel the need of following it up with a separate moisturizer. It does make my combination skin a bit oily/shiny, so I do not use it during the day time. But it definitely makes my skin soft and supple. I don’t have severe pigmentation issue but overall my skin looks even toned. Also I have couple of brown acne scars which appears visibly lighter than before. Overall it imparts a healthy sheen to the skin and evenness which is what I expect from a skin lightening product. Also this oil is enriched with handpicked natural ingredients which are safe to use and beneficial for skin.
- Does what it claims
- Does not irritate my sensitive skin
- Completely natural and free from chemicals
- Nice non-geasy texture
- Very economical
- Good packaging
- Smells nice
- Seriously nothing. I could not have asked for anything more from a facial oil at this price point.
There are many ways to use facial oils, than just one. They can be mixed with face masks or moisturizers to energize them. Also they can be used as mask, if you do not like keeping it on overnight. So including one facial oil in your skincare routine is a real good idea. If you are a beginner with oils like me then this is the perfect product to start with. So recommended!
