Today’s review will be on a Sesame oil from Khadi. Let’s see how it fared for me!
Price: 160 INR
My Experience with Khadi Herbal Sesame Massage Oil:
Lately, I’ve been more into using oils for my skin as I’ve seen and heard so many people rave about facial oils. I know I am too late on the bandwagon but better late than never, right? So, I bought 3 oils which are from Natio, Aroma Magic and this sesame oil from Khadi. Out of all the three, I loved the Natio one very much.
This oil comes in a plastic bottle which is transparent so, you can see how much oil is left inside the bottle. It is a thick, dark yellow colored oil and hence, it feels slightly heavy on the skin. It has a sesame fragrance to it, which I don’t mind because it doesn’t last longer. It makes your skin greasy if you use more of it, so be careful while using it.
The bottle is bulky and it comes with a plastic stopper at the top. It has a flip cap dispenser but, the area around the cap gets oily after using it for a couple of times. So, it is a little messy sometimes and you have to keep cleaning it. The bottle doesn’t leak while you have the stopper on, but if you remove it, chances are that the oil might leak. It is not a good option to use while travelling.
The oil takes sometime to get absorbed into the skin and it stays on top of the skin making your skin look shiny and oily. It provides ample moisture to the skin. I’ve used it on my body as well as on my face. I must say that I’m not too impressed with this oil. The brand claims that it’s a massage oil, but I’d like my massage oil to be fragrant. This doesn’t have that pleasant fragrance in it.
When I use it on my face, it doesn’t make my skin look shiny or beautiful but, it makes my skin oily the next day, just like how the Aroma Magic’s Olive oil does. It makes my skin look greasy and dull but, it does make my skin feel soft. It also claims that it can be used for any body pain. But, it doesn’t do anything to reduce it! It is purely an oil to be used for moisturising your body and that is all you can expect from this product.
