I usually do not trust products that claim to have gold, silver or platinum or any such metals in their products. The same goes with this Gold Oil (That is how I call it)- Ayurvedic Baby Massage Oil as well. As it claimed to be an ayurvedic product I started using this oil for my daughter when she was 1 year old and it did work in some ways. I haven't tried many products from the brand 'Himani', so can't say much about the brand here.
This tiny bottle of oil came as gift for Neya and it claims to have Gold, Silver, Saffron, Almond and Olive !! As I pour the oil on my hand the amazing fragrance of saffron spreads around and it reminds me of Forest Essentials stores :) As I rub the oil it gets easily absorbed leaving the skin non-sticky, shiny and moisturized. My daughter's skin is similar to mine that gets dry very quickly so this did help her a lot. The skin looks healthy but did not make the skin fair as it claims. It has some very tiny gold colored crystals (supposed to be gold I guess :p) which does not irritate the skin in any way.
- Be it true or false I love the ingredients listed.
- Helps dryness to a great extent.
- Smells amazing.
- Little massage is sufficient for the oil to get absorbed.
- Not at all sticky.
- Very light.
- Not expensive for what it says in the ingredients !
- They have 'money back' guarantee too :)
- Did not make the skin fair as it claims and I didn't expect it anyways.
The cost of Himani Healthy & Fair Ayurvedic Baby Massage Oil is 'Rs.39-9=30' is what the bottle says :p Lol.. Well it is Rs.30 for 50 ml !! Guess they have increased the price a little now.
Pushing aside the 'metal factor' which doesn't interest me any time I really like this massage oil for my baby. I advice not to use this until the kids turn 1. I feel their skin is too soft and sensitive for all these - even if it is purely ayurvedic. I am on the 3rd bottle and will be buying this again until I [my daughter] gets bored of it :p A great unique gift to your loved little ones.
