Kama Kumkumadi Oil Review
Yes, I admit the thought of using saffron oil on your face as a night serum might seem like a crazy idea at first, but Kumkumadi oil has been used by Indian women for ages as a beauty serum. I was surprised by Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Ayurvedic Night Serum, and I am sure you would be too!
This product has changed my pre-existing notions about oils for face skin. I used to think that using oil on your face could never be a solution. But this product changed that thought process. The product absorbs quickly, and I could see a difference in the pigmentation of my face. I would definitely recommend trying this product out. The good part is that it comes in a 3 ml bottle. Yes, the fragrance is a little overwhelming, but once you see the benefits of this serum, the fragrance becomes a secondary issue. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 for its benefits and overall after effects.
Pros of Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Ayurvedic Night Serum:
- The product absorbs into the skin pretty easily.
- It does not cause acne.
- It contains great natural ingredients.
- The serum brightens and rejuvenates the skin.
- The packaging is travel-friendly.
Cons of Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Ayurvedic Night Serum:
- The product is quite expensive.
- The saffron fragrance is a little overwhelming, but over time I got used to it.
About Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Ayurvedic Night Serum
The word ‘kumkumadi’ is actually ‘saffron’ in Sanskrit, so Kumkumadi oil would literally translate to Saffron oil in English. Saffron is known to treat pigmentation and lighten the skin. According to Kama Ayurveda, the oil is clinically proven to brighten and illuminate skin and delay signs of aging. Traditionally, it is made from a herbal paste of over 21 herbs. The main ingredients of this product are:
- Sandalwood: It has powerful skin antiseptic and anti-microbial properties, making it useful in clearing blackheads and spots. It also helps in moisturizing dry skin and relieves itching and inflammation.
- Mulaithi: Due to its antiseptic properties, it helps protect against various bacterial and fungal infections.
- Saffron: As mentioned earlier, it helps in rejuvenating the skin making it glow. It also helps with pigmentation and acne.
- Manjhistha: It has antioxidant properties and works brilliantly to treat uneven pigmentation and treat several skin allergies like eczema and acne.
The oil has a yellow-orange color to it. As soon as you open the bottle, you can smell the saffron, and you can smell the fragrance around you after the application of the product too. For me, after 30 minutes, I get used to the product’s smell.
You only need a tiny drop each time you apply the product, so a 3 ml bottle has lasted me for a good amount of time. The product uses sesame oil as its base, so it has a medium consistency to it. After applying this serum on your face, it feels really moisturized and doesn’t feel oily, which I think is great. It also absorbs into the skin quite easily.
How to Use the Product
I was a little skeptical when I heard that you were supposed to apply this oil to your face each night. The thought of making my face super oily was scary at first, I must admit. But then I heard raving reviews of this product on various beauty websites and thought, okay, let’s give it a try!
Because I was so skeptical of incorporating this product into my daily regime, I took it slow. And by slow, I mean applying one drop of this oil on my face only twice a week. On the days that I would apply this oil, I would inspect my face thoroughly the next morning. To my surprise, it wasn’t bad, and I actually started using the product more frequently. The usage went from twice a week to each night.
The brand recommends using this serum after cleansing and toning at night. I like to use only 2-3 drops on my face. I usually apply it to my palm and then massage my hands before applying it to my face.
The product has the following ingredients:
- Sesamum Indicum Oil
- Aja Ksheera
- Caesalpinia Sappan
- Crocus Sativus
- Ficus Benghalensis
- Glycyrrhiza Glabra
- Monochoria Vaginalis
- Nelumbo Nucifera
- Rubia Cordifolia
- Prunus Cerasoides
- Vetiveria Zizanoides
- Laciferra Lacca
Price of the Product and Packaging
The product comes in two sizes: 3 ml and 12 ml. It is priced at INR 845 (approx. $11 USD) for 3 ml. It comes in a dark brown glass bottle with a pipette to make it easier to take the right quantity of the product for use. For trial purposes, I took the 3 ml bottle. It is extremely compact and travel-friendly. Although it comes in a glass bottle and feels that it might break, I have taken this product with me during my travels, and it hasn't broken.
