Finally I’m done with the ever so terrifying CAT-2015. Have a few more less scary exams left to finish and then I would know where to head over next year.
All these exams and the festivals last month left my skin in a very bad state and of course you can blame the hormones too. That’s when I came across this face serum named “ELISIR” by a startup company called IWOWD SKINCARE launched by the pretty blogger ANKITA DAS. IWOWD skincare promotes living an all natural, holistic lifestyle and using all natural ingredients for rejuvenation of one’s body and skin and the 100% natural face serum ‘Elisir’ is their first product in this direction.
Recently I’ve realised how important face oils and serums are for us. They are anyday more effective for our skin and does wonders in a very short period of time , but in a NATURAL WAY. I received this product in the month of October and I’ve been using it ever since without a stop. It’s been more than a month which according them is the prescribed time to see results and I can vouch on the fact that , yes it has shown some really great effects on my skin.
Lets first see some facts about this product:
Claims: This 100% natural face serum is free from any chemicals and helps in reducing sun tanning, blemishes, sun burns, pigmentation and rejuvenates for a brighter and firmer looking skin. Not tested on ANIMALS.
Packaging: It comes in a brownish tinted glass bottle with a dropper cap. The dropper is really useful to take the right amount of product for one use everytime. The ingredients are clearly mentioned on the label but sadly the price isn’t mentioned on it. The only drawback is it’s not at all travel friendly due to the glass bottle.
Ingredients: Contains Argan oil, grapeseed oil, rosehip oil,jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, avocado oil, lavender oil and geranium essential oil.
Fragrance: The fragrance is very naturally and smells a bit like rose but nor overwhelming at all.
Usage: Oily skin-1 drop in day and 2 drops at night
Dry skin-3 drops in day and 4 drops at night
Combination skin-2 drops in day and 4 drops at night.
Price and quantity: INR 1099/- inclusive of all taxes for 30ml bottle.This is really cheap considering other high end brand serums available in the market currently which are priced at a minimum of INR 3ooo and higher.
I started using this on 20th of October and it’s still only half bottle over since only a few drops is required everytime. I had a lot of pigmentation around my mouth and some sun tanning and it actually helped me getting rid of those problems. I wouldn’t say it’s completely gone but yes, it has done it’s magic and I’m going to continue using it and purchase another one soon too. I usually cleanse my face in the morning and night and apply a few drops as per instructions on my face in an upward motion and pat the serum so that it can penetrate into the skin and do it’s work.
Also my skin is soft and brighter and I noticed a clearer complexion.It makes my skin felt moisturized.It is also good for acne prone skin as it didn’t break me out. Since I have a sensitive skin, this serum didn’t cause any redness or itching, hence really good for people having sensitive skin.However,patch test is recommended.Also if someone is allergic to nuts,latex, grapeseed, nursing & pregnant mothers,should refrain from using this.
