Hello dear people! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you all are doing great… ^_^
So, do you like using facial oils?
I have been using facial oils for years now. I usually make my own crude blends but I also love trying the ones available in the market… But as much as I love oils, one thing that I do not like about them is how most of them make my skin feel heavy and look greasy… Isn’t it annoying?
A couple of months back, I was approached by Just Herbs to use and review their facial oil. Having heard a lot about them, I decided to try it. I have been using their kimsukadi tail for quite some time now and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised by how lightweight it is! ❤️
Here is my complete review of the product… Read on to know all about it! ^_^

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Just Herbs kimsukadi tail comes in an amber coloured glass bottle with a dropper cap. The outer cardboard box is peach in colour and has golden patterns on it… It looks really pretty! ❤️
The bottle is quite durable, doesn’t leak in any way and if you keep the box intact, you can carry it around as well. All important details like the list of ingredients, usage directions, mfd., etc., are printed on the cardboard packaging.
The oil is golden/yellow in colour and has a thin consistency. It is super lightweight, non-sticky and non-greasy. It has a mild fragrance – a bit herbal, a bit coconut-y.
I usually take a few drops of the oil and massage it on my face and neck for a couple of minutes. The oil spreads easily and gets completely absorbed into my skin in no time. Unlike other oils, it doesn’t make my skin feel heavy or make my face look oily and dark. It just nourishes my skin and leaves behind a velvety feel.
As I kept using the oil regularly, I noticed that my face was starting to look healthier and brighter than before. The oil does indeed add a glow to the skin when used religiously for some time. If you want to use this oil to fade pigmentation or for anti-ageing benefits, I feel that you may need to use it continuously for a couple of months to see any significant change. But if you just want to have healthy skin, you can see some difference in a week or so!
I have a normal skin type right now, and this oil provides just enough nourishment to my skin. So, I feel that people with combination to normal skin types can use it on its own, but people with drier skin types will need to use a moisturizer along with this.
Also, the brand mentions on the official product page to use this oil as a ‘night oil’, after applying a night cream. However, nothing as such is mentioned on the product and so, I tried it during the day, during the night, with cream, without cream, and it worked just fine for me in every way! 😛
