Iraya Kumkumadi Facial Oil Review
Facials oils have been all the rage since 2014. The Iraya Kumkumadi oil is my first facial oil and I was really excited to try this. So, here is my verdict after using this for around 2 months, continuously. 

Facial oils are a little tricky to work with , so you have to take care if your skin is okay with using oils. Usually I use this after spraying a little bit of rose water on my face first. 

Packaging - 

The Iraya Kumkumadi Oil comes in a blue glass bottle with a dropper. The bottle is on it's own without any box or outer packaging. I actually quite like the blue bottle, but I have to be very careful because I am Miss. Butterfingers.

Directions of using the Iraya Kumkumadi oil 
Product - 

The oil is a very fresh/citrus smelling, light textured oil. I had been using this on n off for a while during the summers and used it continuously during the monsoon and it works best during the summers. It gets absorbed quickly and you need a little quantity for one usage. 

Price - 995 INR for 10 ml 

My experience - 

I used this at night after cleansing and toning. Always use products with potent ingredients at night. I require 4 -5 drops of the product to work perfectly. It gets absorbed very quickly and smells divine and the fragrance lingers for sometime. I strangely sleep very well with this on. It works very good at moisturizing the skin and does not break me out. I have used this with out rose water as well and I prefer using the rose water because I feel like it works better that way. 

This is one of the reasonably priced Kumkumadi oils in the market and does a pretty good work. Though it takes quite sometime to show effects, the effects are lasting. It does not work on pigmentation, but does a good job at removing dark spots and acne spots. Makes the skin very soft and smooth but I didn't notice any "glow" that people talk about after using Kumkumadi oils. I am just happy it worked on my pimple marks, to be honest! 

I would highly recommend this to people with oily skin and combination skin. 

Loads of love,

    I had tried the Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Oil, but it was a bit heavy for my combination skin? Is this one lighter than that? The price is pretty affordable too!

    1. Yep, it is way lighter than the Kama Kumkumadi oil and perfect for Monsoons and summer.
