Hi Guys!! I hope you all are doing good…
Today I am going to review the last product that I received in my August 2017 My Envy Box. August had some really amazing products and I love all of them except the Nyassa Divine Lotus Body Lotion. I had never used an elixir before and it was the reason I actually started using essential oils and chose Rosemary Oil from Ryaal’s amazing range..
In case you don’t know, an elixir is a beauty oil which is highly concentrated and helps get rid of certain skin, hair and body problems.. A lot of brands have come up with their Elixirs nowadays but Elixir shop has completely natural products that are free from chemicals and preservatives. They have an extensive range of essential oil based products which promote the repair of skin, hair or body..
I had never used an Elixir before this one and was really keen on trying and seeing if it could help me get rid of my stubborn acne scars.. This review is based upon my oily, acne prone and sensitive skin. If you want to know how it performed on my skin type and is it worth buying or not, then please keep on reading..
Product Description (As mentioned on My Envy Box Leaflet): With Lavender and Rosemary blended in Elixir’s signature formulation, Zaria goes deep into the inner layers of the skin and brings out a beautiful youthful radiance. It starts by lightening the dark spots and blemishes, and slowly evens out the skin tone. Zaria leaves the skin feeling healthy and glowing naturally, giving you the perfect “no-makeup” look. This is a must have serum to complement your daily beauty regime.
Directions of Usage: Start by washing your face and then take 3-5 drops of Zaria and apply it all over your face and neck, avoiding the eyes. After applying the serum just wait 1 minute for it to absorb and then you can apply any other product.
Ingredients: Rosemary, Lemon, Lavender, Coconut Essential Oil
Cost: Rs. 550 for 5 ml; Rs. 1000 for 15 ml, Rs. 1800 for 30 ml
Shelf Life: 2 years
Availability: Elixir Shop Official Website
Packaging: This elixir comes in a dark brown colored, glass bottle to preserve product freshness from light oxidation. The bottle has a white colored, plastic screw cap and a golden colored, fibre plastic dropper as well so that any one of them can be used as per user preference. Although the packaging is not travel friendly, this elixir looks really pretty and classy.
Smell: Strong, camphoraceous scent of Rosemary essential oil.. In case you don’t know how Rosemary essential oil smells, I’d say it smells like pain relief oils and ointments..
Consistency: This serum has a light consistency and absorbs into the skin quickly without being heavy or greasy at all..
My Experience: I was really excited about using this product when I got it because I have got some really stubborn acne spots on my face due to my never ending acne issues. Initially I did not like the strong camphoraceous smell of this elixir but I got used to it in a day or two and as I said in Nyassa’s review, if you like a product, the smell doesn’t matter. Firstly, I’d say you cannot complaint about its smell because this is how Rosemary smells and overpowers all the other ingredients in a product.
The bottle is made up of glass which is prone to breakage which I again don’t complaint because elixirs are highly concentrated and if kept in plastic bottles, they can spill, react and permeate. I have to take special care with this bottle because I’m really good at dropping things.
This serum is not at all greasy which is a really good thing for people having oily skin like me. I love the fact that it is actually meant for all skin types but since it is highly concentrated, people with sensitive skin should be very cautious while using it and make sure to just use three four drops.. I have actually finished the product as I just had a 5 ml sample. I applied three-four drops of serum on my clean face daily at night and massaged it in gently using circular motions.
It gets absorbed in to the skin within two-three seconds and leaves a tingling sensation on my skin which I like.. You guys already know how much I love products which have astringent and anti-inflammatory properties in them. Some people may not like the strong scent of this elixir and the fact that it slightly stings the eyes as well, I completely enjoyed it, that being my personal preference. You can keep your eyes closed while applying it but I like that feel..
Now coming to the most important part of this review – THE RESULT.. This product works just as claimed and I’d call it my fairy-tale magic potion.. I could see visible reduction in the redness and size of my acne within two days of using it. It does not irritate my sensitive skin at all and makes it soothed instead. On regular usage, it visibly reduces and eliminates the acne and works really well in reducing the acne scars.
Trust me this is the first product I’ve used which not just claims but works within a day or two to make the skin look flawless. After finishing the entire bottle which lasted me for about a month, I could notice that my acne scars had gone completely and my skin was much brighter, radiant and even toned.. My heart bleeds to think about it as I have got really painful acne yet again. I wish I can buy its full sized product real soon and add it to my daily skin care regimen. For me, this is a heaven-sent product!!
