SOULFLOWER Jojoba carrier oil, Grapeseed carrier oil review

Hi Beauties!

Today I'm gonna share two career oils' review from the brand Soulflower. The oils are versatile and can be used on face and hair as well. So let us get started.

Soulflower has become a known name in India but for those who are unaware of the brand, here is a small introduction: a homegrown brand of natural aroma products and pioneer of the unique concept of Spa@Home.

What I like the most about this brand is its excellent customer support (you can contact the team via whatsapp and ask doubts or seek consultation about which product to be used for what).

Apart from this, all products are absolutely natural and free from preservatives and parabens.

The oils came in tiny cardboard boxes and with free sprays. ( however, I don't see any use of those spray tops, I would have much preferred a dropper).

GRAPESEED CARRIER OIL:

What company says: Great for stubborn acne, tightens and tones the skin. Use it as a moisturizer under the eyes. Reduces Stretch marks & sunburns & promotes Hairgrowth. Also reduces feet odour.

Direction of use: Add 2-3 drops of any essential oil in 6-8 drops of this oil and apply on skin. It can also be applied directly and massaged onto the skin & hair or with other carrier oils.

MRP: 350 INR
Shelf life: 2 years.
Special direction: Use within 6 months after opening.
Ingredients: cold pressed Grapeseed oil.

My experience: I have a combination, acne prone skin which tans easily. I used to be very suspicious of  using oils on my skin due to my skin type. Nevertheless, I love using oils and wanted to give this baby a try. And I am very very happy with it.

Although it is a oil, it is not greasy and surprisingly absorbs well into the skin quickly. It has never aggravated my acnes or caused breakouts. I apply this oil in day time after cleansing. I leave it for about 10 mins and then apply a moisturiser. I must say it adds a beautiful healthy glow to the skin.
And I often get compliments that my skin remain fresh even after the whole day's work. (point to be noted I am not much of the make up person and don't usually use even a compact).

However, the pore tightening claim is yet to be observed. I have been using it for like 2 months now but have not seen much change in pore size.
P.S I need to try it in summer. As for winter, It's really good moisturiser cum toner.

Here you can see how well the skin drinks it.

Overall verdict:
Pros:
1) Suitable for all types of skin, even acne prone skin.
2) absorbs well and is non greasy.
3) a little goes a very long way
4) provides nourishment to the skin and imparts subtle glow.
5) helps to make the skin smooth and soft to touch.
6) is absolutely natural and preservative and parabens free.
7) No animal testing

Cons:
1) price may be one but not much of a cons.
2) no dropper provided
3) It only has a shelf life of 6 months. and it is difficult to finish this quantity within 6 months which would mean wastage of product and money. (So opt for 15ml Quantity instead)

Will I recommend it?
Sure. It is a decent product, however, seek consultation from soulflower team instead of randomly buying it.

Will I buy it?
15 ml. yes.



JOJOBA CARRIER OIL:

What company says: It is a nature's tonic for scalp. (I agree:)) It helps to control hair fall and tame frizz. This oil works the best as a makeup remover and adds a golden sheen to the skin.

Directions of use: Add 2-3 drops of Tea tree and rosemary essential oil each in 6-8 drops of jojoba carrier oil and apply on your scalp to control hair fall.

MRP: 450 INR
Shelf life: 2 years.
Special direction: Use within 6 months after opening.
Ingredients: cold pressed Grapeseed oil.

My experience:
I wanted a natural leave in conditioner that controls my frizzy hair. Soulflower recommended me this. And I must say, it is awesome! I have thin hair and was afraid that the oil will weigh my hair down but nothing like this happened. I just take 3-4 drops of this oil, rub it on my palms and then apply on the bottom half of my hair to tame the frizz. and it makes my hair softer and frizz free. This oil is a lovely hair serum for sure!

I have previously used Livon, Matrix's serum and Jafra's split end capsules. They all made my hair frizz free, silky and imparted party style shine to my hair but this oil makes my hair look soft which I really like.

I also asked them to suggest something for a radiant and fair skin. They asked me to mix 5-6 drops of this oil with Lavender essential oil and apply on face before bed. I find this formula a little greasy for the skin. However, my skin has not got into any trouble because of it. On face, I have not observed much difference yet. Let us wait:)

Overall verdict:
Pros:
1) Good for frizzy hair.
2) Little goes a long way
3) adds softness to hair.

Cons:
1) price may be one
2) I need a dropper!!
3) On face, the effects are really slow....

Will I recommend it?
Again, Soulflower offers decent and authentic products. You can,without a doubt, try it as long as you are not expecting miraculous results.

Will I buy it again?
No. I need a natural, liquid leave in conditioner. So I will hunt for that.
