Back in May, my wedding preparations were driving me crazy. My skin got tanned because of all the rounds under summer sun because of skipped sunscreen #Gulty.

Wedding is a special time for a girl, but the only thing that I did specially for my skin and body was to get this. Did it work for my skin? Continue reading…

Usage – FE Soundarya Beauty Body Oil can be used as a massage oil before bath or post-bath. In case you use it before bath, one needs to keep it for an hour and then wash it off. I already faced issues while trying this method with Kama Nalpamaradi and had no intentions of facing those again. So, I used it after my bath at night – will seal in moisture and no sunlight to alter the goodness of the herbs in the oil.
Texture – The oil seems thick, but it is easy to apply. I massaged it into damp skin, and it disappears completely. It has no greasiness, spreads easily, is absorbed quickly and does not stain clothes.
Fragrance – No added fragrance but the herbs and flower infusions gives it smell similar to their saffron cleanser.
Experience – I had high hopes, especially for the huge price I paid for this body oil. Unlike the time I tried Kama Nalpamardi, this time, I had troubled skin on which I could see the effect that it can bring. As a body oil and massage oil, it is great. It smells nice; it is absorbed quickly, easy to massage and everything that you can expect from a body oil. But, even after using more than half bottle of the body oil, my skin was equally tanned and dull. To ensure that the sun is not working against me, I made sure to use sunscreen to avoid further tanning. Because of the daily massage, my skin felt firmer and less dry. But, you can expect that from the use of pure almond oil. In fact, I have personally achieved brighter and fairer skin after using almond oil. I regretted that fact that I tried something new instead of proven pure almond oil.
Overall - As a luxury bath oil and massage oil, it gets full marks. Perfect for everyday use as a moisturizer. As a skincare product, it does just what a massage oil does – nourished, moisturized and firm skin. As a skincare product for troubled skin, it is a failure. Does not add any sheen, does not brighten, does not add glow and does not removes marks or tanning. I will suggest that you go for pure grade almond oil instead of this.
