Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Review !
Yay! I’m so excited to do this product review today !! If you’ve seen my “mad box” give away contest on Instagram, you would know that last year I was all about going back to basics regarding skin care.
If you’ve read my previous post you would know about how and why I switched to organic skin products. And thank god I did !! My skin never looked and felt better ! 😀
Since basic skin care is very very essential for all of us, it is very important to invest in the right kind of products to keep it healthy. In this processing came across the “Kumkumadi miraculous beauty fluid”, which I’m going to review in today’s pose.
When I went to KAMA to restock the Kumkumadi face scrub, the store person told me about this oil! And he said if I combined it with the scrub it would work wonders as it belonged to the same ingredient category.
I love face oils. They provide so much nourishment to the face. And since oils get soaked deep into the skin it’s very important to use an organic oil.
At first when I started using it I was a little hesitant because my skin is oily by itself and using an oil to nourish it seemed like a bad idea. But when it started to show results, I did not look back !
FIRST IMPRESSION – The day I used it for the first time I was not very convinced. Lol. It is a very thick oil and does not get absorbed like oils/serums usually do. And the smell !!! Well, lets not talk about that ! Oh wait its a review I have to talk about it !! The oil has a very very different smell, I wouldn’t say it smells bad but it just smells different and it is not very pleasant if you’re using it for the first time. Then I realised that all the products that I had been using till then had added fragrance which made them smell amazing, which is not a good thing.
If you sleep next your partner, i suggest you warn him about the smell ! 😛 My husband was NOT PLEASED !! 😛
PROGRESS – As I continued to use it for a couple of days, I learnt how to use it to my convenience. I started applying it two hours before going to bed and by the time I hit the bed the smell subsides a little. If your partner is having trouble with the smell spray a little bit of rose water on your face before you go to bed. It’s not that bad really ! The oil started to show results only after a good 2 weeks !
WHAT IT CLAIMS – The fluid claims to eliminate pigmentation and dark circles, helps reduces fine lines and also in developing even skin tone by improving the over all skin complexion.
DOES IT SATISFY THE CLAIMS? – It surely surely reduces pigmentation and evens out the skin tone, but I personally did not notice any change in my dark circles. And about the complexion, I did notice a change in how my skin looks. It started to look more radiant and develop a unique kind of glow !! My skin also felt very very soft! I don’t have fine lines, so I cannot tell you what it does there.
WHEN I USE IT – I usually use it at night time before I go to bed after scrubbing my face with the Kukumadi face scrub. It is very very important to use good skin products at night time because thats when your skin thoroughly absorbs the product you apply. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS apply face oils only when you’re face is clean !
HOW MUCH I USE – The bottle says you should use around 4-5 drops for face and neck, however I use around 6-7 drops.
- Comes in a super cute bottle with a dipper that ensures there’s absolutely no wastage.
- Its a 100% ayurvedic – contains no paraben, no perfume and no other harsh chemicals.
- Since it is recommended to use only a couple of drops, it lasts longer.
- The bottle is made up of glass, so its not very travel friendly.
- Has a smell that some people might find to be unpleasant.
- Very expensive compared to the other oils available in the market.
Pricing – When I first bought it in 2014 it was Rs. 1350/- but they’ve revised the pricing now and it’s Rs. 1890/- for 12ml ! It is very very expensive, but trust me it works !!! If you love ayurvedic stuff I highly recommend you buy this baby. Though it is only 12 ml it lasts for about 40 days ! And once you starting noticing the difference, you could use it every other night too ! 😀
Would you buy it ? Let me know in the comments below ! 😀
Until next time,
