Around 4 months back my skin was behaving differently; I was having dull glow-less skin and acne scars where visible. My facial skin was pigmented around the nose and mouth areas. Had heard a lot about the Kottakkal Kunkumadi Tailam. I will be sharing my experiences how this ayurvedic product helped in improving my skin. I am using another Kottakkal’s product for my hair which is Kottakkal Nilibhringadi Keratailam (Click here to know more).
This is an oil based ayurvedic pure herbal product which helps in improving complexion and lightening pigmentation marks.
Quantity: 10 ml

My experience with Kottakkal Kunkumadi Tailam
Packaging: The bottle comes packed in a small carboard box colored pink with name and details of the product. The tailam (oil) is contained in a small plastic bottle with a nozzle which dispenses the tailam drop by drop. It is not travel friendly as the oil leaks if not kept upright.
Fragrance: It has strong herbal smell; somewhat like shadbindu tail (people suffering from sinusitis must be knowing about this oil). The smell fades out in 30 minutes approximately.
Color: It is yellowish orange in color.
Texture: It is neither too runny nor too thick in consistency. It takes few minutes to get absorbed.
As I have combination skin so I started with mixing two drops of the tailam in my face pack. After few days, when I was sure it won’t break me out I started using it directly on my face during the night. I would wash my face, apply toner. Then, I would take two drops of this tailam and massage it on my face gently. The oil would take some time to get absorbed in the skin. In the morning, my face would feel nourished, but not much result I could see on the pigmentation part.
I applied it for around a month every night religiously and that’s when I noticed the pigmentation and acne scars have lightened. It’s a product which takes time in showing the result. So, you got to have patience. I have been regularly using this product for the last four months and its working great for me. I don’t have any problem of dark circles, but it has brightened the under-eye area as well.
As it is an oil, it provides the much needed moisturization. If you have oily skin, I would suggest to use it in the evening and wash it off after 1-2 hours or before going to bed (don’t keep it overnight).
