Hello People! I hope you all had a wonderful Diwali ;-)
Am back to Mumbai with a terrible cold - congested nose & all.
Back to business then, and the first review for the oil that saved my skin from flaking terribly in the cold.
seabuckthorn, coconut, sesame, soybean and almond oil, this oil is perfect for using all over the body after a bath.
Price: Rs. 250 for a 200 ml bottle
1. Despite being a mixture of heavy oils like sesame & almond oil, this product has a very light texture, it absorbs pretty quickly (within a minute or two) and feels very silky against the skin, never heavy or sticky. It also gets to work instantly, within an hour, rough dry spots like elbows and hands begin to heal and soften. It also works very well on dry feet, I would apply it overnight.
2. I used this on my face after skin started to flake despite the thick cold cream, it moisturised and soften my skin a lot. The flaking stopped instantly and my skin was much better hydrated.
3. It has an intense smell but nothing that I found offensive, is honey colored, and flows pretty easily, making it easy to massage all over the body and face. It also didn't stain my clothes.
4. I like that it is a mixture of all wonderful oils like sesame, almond, coconut and seabuckthorn. Seabuckthorn is a berry that is very high in antioxidants and helps the skin heal and rejuvenate rapidly.
Nothing actually. Although it is meant for the body, I quite like using this for my face.
Will I repurchase: Yes.
This instantly softens and hydrated my face and body. I love using this underneath my foundation as it is so light. A drop or two massaged gently for two minutes, helped my foundation go on much smoother in the cold winter.
Do you use any body oils during winter?
