MY TAKE ON KAMA AYURVEDA KUMKUMADI MIRACULOUS BEAUTY FLUID:
Packaging: The facial oil comes in an amber glass dropper bottle which is light weight and easy to carry around.
Texture: The oil is neither thick nor runny. When used in the correct way, it gets absorbed after a bit of massaging leaving behind a well-moisturized dewy finish.
Fragrance: The oil smells purely herbal. Some might not like the smell but I kind of like it because it isn’t really bitter and strong like the traditional Ayurvedic preparations and is quite soothing.
How I use and after-effects: I am not really a fan of facial oils since most of them turn out heavy on the skin and leave behind clogged pores after few uses. Also, since I have oily-combination skin, I do not prefer facial oils during the day time. Kumkumadi oil is supposed to be used as a night time routine only (exactly how I like it!) and when used correctly, it does not feel heavy or oily at all. To use, dampen your skin with rose water or any facial mist and use not more than 3 drops for the entire face. Dot the oil directly on your skin using the dropper provided including lips and area around the eyes and massage until fully absorbed. Follow with a night cream.
After 1 week of usage: Its been a week since I have religiously used the oil and I do see some difference in the way my skin looks and feels. Firstly, I am grateful that it did not clog my pores and secondly, I am happy that the oil targets several skin problems in one go! Now, any skin care product takes almost 2-3 weeks or even more to actually show results, but this oil definitely has shown some some changes in my skin in just a week of usage. The oil has definitely made my skin softer, reduced acne, completely treated tiny blemishes and clogged pores near chin area and nose and also lightened sun tan to a great extent. So far, I haven’t really seen any difference in my dark circles and dark spots but I shall hopefully see positive results after 3 weeks- 1 month of usage.
After 2 months of usage: Its been 2 months since I started using this product and I feel now is the perfect time to put up my through review. The kumkumadi oil definitely worked amazing for the initial 2 weeks- helped lighten sun tan, keep skin clear and also lightened dark spots. Skin felt soft and smooth the next morning. The problem with most skin care products is that they stop showing results on my skin after continuous usage or do not work as amazing as they initially did and the same thing happened with this product! (also a reason why I took long to put up my final review!). I tried using this in different ways to see if it works and I have come to a conclusion that the product works great when used alternate days instead of using it daily. If you have the same issue with products that stop working after religious usage, you should definitely try this! Also, I love using 2 drops of this oil mixed with my kumkumadi night cream from the same brand and it works superb! If you hate layering oils under or over creams, try mixing it with the cream and it will work just perfect! Now my current routine is using this oil mixed with my night cream alternate days before bedtime and it has kept my skin clear, bright and soft. I do not see much of a difference in my dark circles but it has worked amazing in keeping my skin clear and bright.
