Talking about common skin concerns, tanning and pigmentation are two of the major issues that bother most of the people out there… After all, who wants to have five different skin tones on five different body parts! 😛
I personally suffer from severely tanned legs and I am always on the lookout for tan lightening products…
A few months back, I came across this gorgeous looking bottle of mystic rose anti tan – body lightening massage oil on Smytten, and it was love at first sight for me! ❤
I bought the oil instantly and have been using it since then…
So, did it actually reduce my tan or did I regret buying it? Read on to know… 😀

Tvakh mystic rose anti tan – body lightening massage oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle packaging with a golden-black coloured pump dispenser on the top! All the details about the product, including the complete list of ingredients, usage directions and safety instructions are mentioned over the bottle… ❤
The overall packaging of the oil is quite sturdy but the pump dispenser present lacks a lock and hence, it is not suitable for travel purposes as it may leak under pressure…

The oil, when present in the bottle, has a beautiful yellowish-golden tinge to it and is loaded with dried rose petals… Although, when pumped out, it comes out as a clear, transparent oil! The oil is not extremely lightweight like mineral oil or essential oils but is also not too thick or heavy like castor oil… The consistency of this oil is quite close to that of sweet almond oil and is perfect for light massages!
It also has an extremely mild, natural fragrance of roses which is not going to bother the sensitive noses at all! ❤

This body oil gets almost completely absorbed into the skin with just a little massage, leaving a healthy shine on the surface… I have used the oil immediately after bath and also after a few hours of bathing and the only difference that I could see was that the oil seeped into the skin faster when used as an after bath oil…
This oil leaves the skin soft and nourished post-use and doesn’t stain the clothes at all! It would keep oily to normal-dry skin types nourished throughout the day while people with severely dry skin types may feel the need to reapply it after 6 to 8 hours… Also, even though people with combination to oily skin types may find it to be too heavy or greasy for them, especially during the summer months, it doesn’t actually clog the pores or harm the oily skin!
My facial skin is quite oily and I had used it for a few days as an overnight facial oil and it didn’t break out my skin or caused any issues… ❤

Now coming to its claims of being an anti tan – body lightening oil… I have been using this oil regularly on my tanned legs for over two months now and to be very honest, I don’t see much of a difference! It might have reduced the tan by 4 to 5% but the difference is not really visible to the eyes… Also, it didn’t do anything to even out the patches of pigmentation on my legs! So, in my opinion, this oil is not going to be of any help if you have old tan or pigmentation… But it may lighten freshly acquired tan to some extent!
One thing that I liked about the oil is that with regular use it improved the texture of the skin on my legs and made it comparatively smooth! 😀

  1. Quite expensive!

RATING: 3.25/5

FINAL TAKE: Tvakh’s mystic rose oil is an organic, non-comedogenic body oil which keeps the skin soft and nourished for long… It may also lighten the fresh tan to some extent but doesn’t visibly reduce old tan or pigmentation!
So, if you are just looking for a natural and safe body massage oil/after bath oil, you may give this a try! 🙂

Hope it helps! ❤

  1. I love reading your reviews always. Detailed and honest. I have combination skin but my hands and legs areas are dry so I can try this definitely.

  2. I really like that it’s exclusive blend of oils that’ll moisturise and nourishes our skin. I wish it could effective in removing tan to some extent.

  3. I prefer different types of oil for different uses, however never heard of a detan oil. Not sure how much it’s gonna help. I trust other products for detanning

  4. Loved the review, this surely sounds like a product worth trying, thank you for sharing this amazing bit, will definitely check out their website to know more ?

  5. All ingredients are really good for skin..Nice detailing review..
    Normally my skin is more towards oily.. but in this winter season its more of normal .. So, I might give it a try…

  6. I love your reviews. They are detailed and complete. Also, love the way you style your shots. I am going to try this massage oil for sure.

  7. I really commend you for your honest reviews, Mrinal. I never heard of tan-removing oil and feel that this one doesn’t too. For that price we can have other usable options, right?

  8. This anti-tan body lightening oil seems not very much effective on skin but good for moisturising if you have dry skin.. very nice review..

  9. Firstly it is quite expensive and if I have to invest in something and it has to have some effect if it’s ineffective what’s the use? Also I am combo skin type so I will pass. But I love reading your reviews

  10. I think it will be a good choice for winters as the body requires nourishment and this one doesn’t spoil the clothes..would give it a try..

  11. Thanks for sharing the detailed review. I am glad you shared the honest feedback about the tanning part. It is actually a expensive choice , it would be really nice if you could suggest something affordable to get rid of tanning in your next post.

  12. I haven’t tried any product from Tvakh, though this brand has been around from a while. The oil is promising but I don’t think it would suit my oily skin. Thanks for your review.

  13. Thanks for this honest opinion I have dry face will think of trying the Mystic Rose body lightening massage oil once and come back with my opinion on this.

  14. Amazing and beautiful post. Tvakh’s mystic rose oil sounds good for the skin. The packaging is so pretty.
    Great thoughts.

  15. These days dry oils are preferred by people and they dò not stain clothes either. As you said this oil can be heavy for some people makes it less versatile. Good that you tested it for about 2 months before sharing a review. Wish it did what it claimed.

  16. I love the way you explained about the anti tan oil I was actually about to buy it and this is indeed a helpful post to me.

  17. Hmmm if the product doesn’t remove the tan, then it defeats its purpose. I’ll avoid buying this. Thank you for your review.

  18. Organic products are amazing for our body. It is good that it keeps the skin moisturized for longer period of time.
    Thanks for sharing this honest review.

  19. I love body oils. They are just so nourishing for the skin. Rose is such a beautiful ingredient and I would love to try this. I like products that help to improve texture of skin.

  20. It seems like a good product for skincare but I wish it could help to reduce old tan or pigmentation.

  21. That was a very detailed review. As my skin is oily and you mentioned it might not be good for oily skin people I have to skip this one.

    1. It doesn’t harm the oily skin but you may find the oil to be too heavy and greasy for your skin type… So, you may skip it! 🙂

  22. The ingredients you mentioned need to vary in composition to be more effective for detaning and pigmentation. Licorice is one such ingredient as its very well known for its lightening property

  23. I would love to have a brightening effect on my skin, but I cannot put oil on it. I already have oily skin and it does not agree with any kind of oil. Thanks for the honest review.

  24. Since it is good for normal skin, having a look at its ingredients, I would really like to try this Rose oil, though it sounds lil expensive.

  25. I don’t think this is a good buy if you are looking for lightening your body for moisturizing purpose you can try. By the way i have dry skin type,hence i can use this .. Very honest review mrinal.

  26. Thanks for sharing honest opinion. I have combination skin, so I should give this oil a miss.

  27. Now that the sun heat has started to increase, I will need this to lighten any fresh tans inspite of applying sunscreens..thanx for this insight

  28. Honest review. Tvakh mystic rose oil looks very attractive due the presence of rose petals. Rose is my all time favorite flower. So, i will try it not as an anti pigmentation oil but as a moisturising oil…

  29. This is what I like about your reviews. Balanced and honest. The oil is a good product but doesn’t reduce the tan significantly. I wonder why that is?

  30. It seems like a good product but since it is expensive, I think I will avoid it. Thank you for sharing this review.
