About the Product/Product Claims:

Revive - Magic in drops

Aura Revive Face Oil

A rich blend of Pomegranate and Apricot kernel oils; high in nutrients to benefit your skin in multiple ways.

Pomegranate Oil is rich in Punicic acid; an omega 5 fatty acid (conjugated) is the only source of Punicic acid known to modern science. It also contains vitamin B1, B2, C, potassium, Magnesium and pytho-estrogens. Apricot Oil carries Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) which comes from essential fatty acid Omega 6. It also contains Vitamin A and E. The Punicic acid helps increase the production and reduce the breakdown of collagen fibers. This process prevents the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Skin elasticity and tone is improved as the phyto-estrogens support the hormonal balance by keeping it hydrated. Studies have shown that Pomegranate oil stimulates 'keratinocytes', the major cells found in the epidermis (outer layer of skin). This regeneration of cells restores and repairs the skin by reversing the past damage and REVIVE a more youthful you.

My Experience:

Since the past couple of years, the benefits of using serums and facial oils in skincare regimen has become quite a rage among beauty experts and bloggers/vloggers alike. I have dry skin, with an occasionally oily T-Zone (depending upon weather), initially, I was quite apprehensive about using any serum or facial oil because I always thought that they would feel quite tacky/heavy on my skin. However, I must say that this facial oil has changed my perception. This variant is targets Dry or mature skin, but the brand has also launched another variant for Oily Skin a few months back. By “mature skin”, it does not mean that it cannot be used by the younger lot. The brand owner, Fatima, who is a very cooperative lady, clarified this to me saying that she is in her twenties, and uses the products herself. Since it is free of chemicals and parabens, it does not have any side effects.

As far as the packaging of this product goes, it comes in a brown coloured glass bottle with a dropper having a golden rim, which contains 30 ml of the product. I think this baby is quite a beauty. Coming to the texture of the oil, it has a lightweight texture, not only it gets absorbed in no time, but also not feel sticky at all. I apply it on my face and neck every night before bedtime. A little amount of this face oil goes a long way. I have used it in the Winters of Islamabad and the harsh summer season as well, and it did not make me feel like an oil slick even in Summers.

Enriched with the goodness of Pomegranate oil and apricot oil, I like the way it makes my skin feel super soft, hydrated and revitalized, thereby improving the elasticity of my oh-so-dry skin. Continuous use of this product reduced my stubborn pigmentation marks to a great extent. As for the fine lines, being in my twenties, I do not have many, but my eyes do get puffy in the mornings. Moreover, a few lines started appearing under my eyes during the last year, and not only it reduced the puffiness of my eyes, but I have seen a considerable reduction in lines.

All in all, Revive Face Oil by Aura has turned out to be a perfect, lightweight natural moisturizer for my dry skin, that nourished and rejuvenated it. True to it’s description, it actually contains Magic in Drops!!!!

P.S. I have written this post after having used up the product completely, so people with my skin type can rely on this review. LOL!
