REVIEW: Do Bandar - Night Experience Supercharged Oil

Thursday, October 01, 2015

Hello beauties! To beat your Monday blues I am back with a review (sorry for going AWOL) Following a CTM routine at night is important to keep our skin healthy and young. Today I will be reviewing a product which is a very vital part of my CTM routine. The product is called Night Experience - Supercharged Oil. Ever since I learnt of natural and cruelty free products, I have been drawn towards them massively. The main reason for being drawn towards these products were that they are ACTUALLY natural and not just claim to be natural. When I first heard that you could apply oil on your face, I was confused and surprised. However, I gave in and purchased this night serum as I was looking for a moisturiser that I could apply at night. Read on further to know how my experience was:

My Experience:

Do Bandar Night Experience Supercharged Oil comes in a glass bottle with dropper cap which ensures easy usage. The oil is concentrated and has a very strong herbal aroma which might bother sensitive noses. Once gently massaged on skin, the aroma vanishes in few minutes. I purchased this oil during cold months and I used to take 4 drops in palm, rub it between my palms and massage gently all over my face after washing my face with a mild cleanser and wiping my face with a toner. The oil used to hydrate my face immediately and I would wake up with supple skin with a subtle glow on the face. 

As the weather got sultry and humid I restricted it two drops and it hydrated my face immediately but as the humidity increased I used only one drop as two drops seemed a little heavy for my skin. The oil again didn't disappoint me, I woke up with supple skin and a subtle glow on the face. Regular usage of oil did bring a slight improvement in my skin, the super fine lines near my eye area vanished and it made my skin look healthy. 

  • Natural, handmade and cruelty free
  • Lovely herbal aroma but a bit on the strong side
  • Glides easily over skin
  • Makes the skin supple, smooth and lends a subtle glow
  • Helps in combating fine lines
  • Available only online. Not a con for me as I don't mind buying online
  • Pricey 
  • Date Of Manufacturing missing from the label
Will I recommend: Yes

Until next time,
