Just Herbs Kimsukadi tail and Elixir Serum will change your skincare game!! Review, Price, How to use


The skin is the largest organ in our body and sometimes the most neglected one too. Our skin cells are changing all the time. The skin sheds it's cells everyday. This means that taking care of the skin is not an occasional thing but a daily process. Implementing a skin care routine is something you would want to start if you don't have it already because the skin is exposed to environmental pollutants and Sun all the time and once the damage is done, it's done! 
Although the skin care routines have now become too extensive and elaborate, there are two basic steps that should go into your everyday skincare routine no matter how old you are and they are cleansing and moisturising.
While there are tons of cleaners available in the market to suit one's particular skin needs, for moisturising my skin I highly depend on Just Herbs Kimsukadi tail and Elixir Serum.

KIMSUKADI TAIL/OIL
Brand Claims:
How about a facial oil that works on your skin while you sleep? You apply a few drops at bed time after your night cream and you wake up the next morning with skin that feels brighter, tighter and radiant! Regular usage of this award-winning Ayurvedic facial oil also helps fade pigmentation, dark spots and blemishes. Also known as Kinshukadi Tailam as per the ancient Ayurvedic texts.

Price/Quantity:
INR 1,595/15ml
INR 2,195/30ml

Ingredients:
Classical formulation (Ayurvedic formulary of india) sesame (sesamum indicum) oil, palash (butea monosperma), sandalwood (santalum album), laksha (laccifer lacca), indian madder (rubia cordifolia), mulethi* (glycyrrhiza glabra), safflower (carthamus tinctorious), vetiver (vetiveria zizanioides) roots, himalayan wild cherry (prunus cerasoides), sacred lotus flower (nelumbo nucifera), banyan aerial roots (ficus bengalensis), palaksh (ficus lacor), padma kesar (nelumbo nucifera), henna (lawsonia inermis), turmeric root (curcuma longa), indian sarsaparilla (hemisdesmus indicus), patang (caesalpinia sappan).

Packaging:
Kimsukadi tail comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. The dropper controls the amount we dispense. Glass instead of plastic ensures the packaging is eco friendly too and not just practical and attractive.

My experience:
Kimsukadi tail is a night oil, that works on your skin while you sleep, allowing its specialised Ayurvedic ingredients to nurture and repair skin from the deepest layers. It is a blend of seventeen precious herbs. These herbs including sandalwood, vetiver and nagkesar (Indian-rose chestnut) are noted as varanaya dravyas (complexion enhancers) in the Charak Samita, an ancient Indian Sanskrit text written thousands of years ago. 
I apply 3,4 drops of Kimsukadi oil at night on my cleansed face after applying a night cream or gel and massage it gently in upward motion till my skin absorbs it completely. Since the oil is light weight it gets absorbed easily and is suitable for all skin types.
Regular usage of this has brightened my skin and it looks and feels more nourished. I'm observing a few dark spots are starting to diminish too. I have a dry skin and this facial oil keeps it hydrated for long hours. No wonder it has won the best facial oil award by cosmopolitan!!

Packaging:
Elixir Serum comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump controls the amount we dispense. Glass instead of plastic ensures the packaging is eco friendly too and not just practical and attractive.

My Experience:
A herbal face serum is more effective than a cream because it is made up of molecules that are smaller than those of a cream. As a result, it is able to penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients and targets the skin concerns. That's why this Elixir Serum potion is to be applied before we apply our moisturizer, so I take a pea-size of it and gently massage it into my skin. It is very smooth and has a texture somewhere between a cream and lotion. It spreads easily and evenly on the skin and gets absorbed in a few seconds. The good part is it is fragrance free. With continuous use of it along with the Kimsuakdi oil, my skin has become brighter and the texture has improved. It looks and feels smoother and more supple now. 

The Gist:
I'm totally in love with both these products. My skin is loving this extra dose of hydration and care and is behaving really well lately. It has brought visible changes in the skin and I highly highly recommend these products :)
