Right after I did the post on my 2016 Favorites, I realized that even though I love to use face oils during the day, I don’t have an economical and available-in-India answer to that. My favorites are either 

So, the first thing I needed was to work on this issue - to find a Made-In-India face oil which works and is economical. When I returned home after three weeks of travel, I found a package containing Junaili Face Oil. (I already talked about the brand Junaili when I shared my love for their inexpensive and insanely effective Apricot Kernel Body Scrub.)

It checks all the boxes. Now, I had to make it work as a face oil for the day. But can Apricot oil be used during the day on the face?

Texture: I tested it on the back of my hand and fund it to be on the heavier side. My heart sank with that. Luckily, within seconds I found that the oil has vanished leaving behind a velvety feel.

Usage: On my face, I started to use 2 drops during day and 3 during night. I just need to tap, and the oil sinks right in. These days I using neither toners (because my pores look good) nor face mists (forgot to pack, have only a tiny one for emergency). As I do not have face mists, I use it right after I wash my face when my skin is still moist. [Face Oil Tip: always use face oils on damp skin – you will need less, the oil will seal in moisture better, and will be absorbed quickly.]

Packaging: Glass bottle with glass dropper. It sounds very non-travel-friendly. But, I am traveling with it.

Price: Rs 400 for 30ml. Yes. Super cheap (BTW Khandige Kumkumadi still wears the most economical face oil crown  selling 50ml kumkumadi at Rs 375)

Efficacy: Junaili Apricot Face Oil gives a nice velvety feel to the skin. My skin faced zero issues. It calms my skin as well. The oil is soothing and healing. I didn’t get any acne or skin concerns. Not even during those days of the month. I should give this facial oil extra credits because it worked when I am changing cities every four-five days, eating only junk and outside food, skipping fruits and other nutritional foods, and sleeping erratically.

I cannot comment if this will work on marks or not because I don’t have any to check. I did have a mark on my forehead (threading disaster) which is completely gone. If you have marks/blemishes, then do check Kumkumadi oils. But, those can be used only during the night.

I comfortably used it during the day. Don’t know how it will fair during summer. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Ingredients: What does it contain? Cold-pressed Apricot Kernel Oil, Geranium Leaf Essential Oil. (Crafted from Himalayan botanicals at 7000 feet). Apricot Kernal Oil is rich in Omega 6 and 9 which is not only anti-aging but also prevents acne by balancing the lipids on the skin surface (Possibly, the reason I am not facing acne). Geranium, on the other hand, is applauded for its soothing and healing capability. Just two ingredients and such a great product.

Overall: We just completed one month of 2017, but I can assure that Junaili Apricot Face Oil will feature in my 2017 favorites. I always review a skincare product only after using it for at least three weeks but I have been using it for two weeks only. I am so impressed that I could not wait. (I will use it for another week as well and update the post in case I find anything new)

Can I tell you a secret? I like the aroma this apricot and geranium blend more than Life-Flo.


PS: When I went to Nagpur last weekend, I used the Himalaya Damage Control Shampoo (SLS/SLES free but has ALS), my hair got tangled and frizzy. I used this to tame my hair. Just two drops of this did the magic. It didn’t even weigh down my hair! Can I be any more impressed? I don’t think that even the brand knows what a gem they have created! I am sure no one in their team tried it on their hair.
