I am not a fan of massage oils but recently I wanted to try something that helps me to reduce my stress. So I picked this Khadi Natural Lavender & Ylang Ylang Massage Oil. I love “lavender products”; they are really relaxing and feel so fresh on skin. This is also a nice one. Let’s jump into the review.
Price: Rs. 280/-for 210ml
Product Description & Ingredients:
My Experience with Khadi Herbal Lavender & Ylang Ylang Massage Oil:
Like all Khadi products, this one also comes in a similar long clear bottle with a black flip top cap. See through packaging is nice but the cap is not so sturdy. Oil leaks from the cap sometime. This happens with all the Khadi oils and I don’t like it. It is not so travel friendly. If I want to carry it I need to put the inner cap inside the bottle. But overall this is so affordable and easily available.
They have so many variants of massage oil and I chose this Lavender & Ylang Yalng one. In the bottle oil looks nice violet in color and it is lightweight thin runny textured oil. It spreads on my skin smoothly and it is really easy to massage with this oil. As it is not thick so I can massage it for a long time with small amount of product. It never feels heavy or sticky on body and it blends effortlessly on skin. With the massage it also gets absorbed into the skin quickly and my skin looks soft & polished. During massage the oil provides a nice sensation on skin which actually relaxes my body and mind too. You can feel the difference within few minutes.
The oil has the benefit of lavender and Ylang Ylang; also it has so many good oils in it. But for the presence of lavender it smells so strong and beautiful. I totally love the smell of lavender but unfortunately I don’t like Ylang-Ylang’s smell. It feels bit strong for me. I thought that with lavender it will smell better but no, it turns little overpowering. Still, only for the refreshing smell of lavender I like this. It feels good and relaxing on skin. This is totally a personal choice. If you like ylang ylang then you will love it.
I usually prefer to massage this oil in evening and it is really easy and pretty massage experience with it. Also I love to apply this after bath on holidays and you can also use it on a spa day. It feels extremely light on skin and it instantly makes my skin soft, smooth and shiny. It never looks oily but it adds a nice glow to my skin. My skin looks smooth and polished.
This is really nice as massage oil and it is also nice oil for body on my normal skin. It provides nice hydration on skin and makes skin healthy. Sometimes I wash my body after using this or I skip this step depending on the weather. But for its light formula it is not for winter season or if you have dry rough body, it can’t provide enough hydration. On my normal to dry skin it works pretty well during this hot season.
Overall it is a nice massage-oil that gives a relaxing spa like experience at home. It provides that’s soothing touch to my tired body and after use it my skin looks fresh and smooth. I really like this and it never irritates my skin. It suits almost all skin type, except super dry skin. It is just massage oil not super hydrating body oil still I am happy with this affordable oil.
