My Experience with Kottakal kumkumadi tailam
Packaging – It is a very tiny 10 ml bottle.It has a white screw cap which is quite sturdy and spill proof.
Fragrance is purely medicinal which I don’t like at all. Kumkumadi tailam is a yellow-orangish liquid.It claims to Help in soothing mild acne, Makes skin brighter and improves skin texture.

For me its been a month I am using this face oil and it has done a lot for my skin.I was able to see results in a week only.I use 3-4 drops of oil in my evening skin regime after cleansing my face and massage for about 30-40 secs until it gets absorbed into skin.I make sure to apply this at least half an hour before bed otherwise it will get wiped away.
Coming to the results It made my skin brighter and improved the texture a lot.After continuous use of one week radiance were visible.Just for experiment I stopped using it for 4-5 days in a run and my skin again got a little dull.
It is very normal phenomenon , Longer and continuous you use a product , it will show it’s effect and as soon as you stop using any product its effect will degrade by time.
update(18/12/2017) – I am switching myself to all organic , natural and ayurvedic products . Started using Imiana House organic handmade soaps .
and their Body Butters which are 100% organic , vegan and chemical free.
So beauties with major skin problems has to wait a little to see the actual results.For me it is a win win face oil. My MIL is 50+ and she is also loving the Kottakal kunkumadi tailam.
For oily skin beauties my suggestion is to apply this oil for 2-3 hours only and simply wash with water before bed.And always apply sunscreen in day time (indoors OR outdoors both).
Good points –
- Makes skin brighter.
- Improves skin texture.
- Fights tiny zits.
Not so good points –
- Very strong Medicinal smell.
