Auravedic Facial Skin Repair Moisturizing Lotion Review

Pollution, dirt and mistakes in daily diet routine make our skin look dull, lifeless and aged. To recover from all these skin issues, we need a good nourishing skin repair lotion. It should nourish our skin, penetrate deeper and work to clarify the skin issues. Today, I am reviewing a Facial Skin Repair Moisturizing lotion from Auravedic. We have already seen the review of Pulpy almond honey face wash from this brand and this is my second using product from them. I am so much impressed of this product at first sight for the "Skin Repair" claim. Who doesn't like their skin to be perfect? So, I have been using this cream for past few days and now comes my review.

Auravedic's unique blend of nourishing bio-actives assists the skin's natural process of regeneration to help restore it's elasticity and suppleness while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. The lotion is easily absorbed and deeply penetrating.

My Views and Ratings

The Packaging
This product comes in a thick transparent plastic bottle with a press type inner lid and a silver coloured screw cap. The cap is stiff, hence this becomes travel friendly. And it would be easier for you to find how much product is left inside because of its transparency. I think you need to put a hole in the center of the inner lid in order to take the lotion out. I feel it a bit tricky and expecting some more easier packaging from Auravedic like tubes or squeeze types. Thank god it's not a tub! Hygienic bottle it is!

Colour, Consistency and Fragrance
The lotion is milk white in colour with a normal to runny consistency and smooth texture. To say about the fragrance, really I can't express it properly. It's a bit floral, bit herbal and a bit medicinal too. The fragrance is not fruity or sweet but still it has a bearable natural smell. Sensitive noses may feel a bit heavy but the smell gets milder few minutes after the application.

How it works on Me
I squeezed a bit of lotion in my palm, dotted it all over my facial skin and started to massage. The lotion got absorbed quickly without leaving much greasy feel(but oily skins may feel a bit greasier) and it also doesn't leave any whitish caste over my facial skin. After few minutes, the greasy feel and the fragrance vanished. Then my skin felt so soft, smooth and nourished!  With regular use, it made my pores tighten and also helped in improving the texture of my skin. This is what I experienced with this facial skin repair lotion. As I don't have any wrinkles or fine lines, I can't say about this part but my aunt who used this felt it helps her wrinkles too. So, I guess it has anti aging properties also. Overall, I would say that it's a great pick for dry skins, normal skins (Night usage is best) and I don't think this will work on oily skins. The lotion doesn't break me out and doesn't give me any other side effects. It does what it claims because I really saw a good improvement over my skin's texture. Worth a try!

  1. Smooth texture which spreads easily over the skin.
  2. Contains natural ingredients like almond oil, olive oil and kokum butter.
  3. It is mentioned on the pack to use it 2-3 times a day, so I guess it's too light and natural over facial skin.
  4. No side effects. No break outs.
  5. Comes in a economical price for the good quantity.
  6. Tightens pores and improves the softness and elasticity of the skin.
  7. Works as a great moisturizer for dry skins. 
  8. Keeps skin nourished for long hours even though the texture is so light.
  9. No animal testing :D :D
  10. A single bottle lasts really long as a tiny squeeze of lotion is enough for the whole face and neck. So, I would say it as an affordable buy.
  1. Not for oily skins as it may give a slight oily feel. I am not sure about it, you can still try this lotion in dry winters.
  2. Packaging can be little improved. (Can't be taken a con, because it comes in a very hygienic bottle)
  3. The fragrance can even be little milder. So that sensitive noses will feel it good. 
My Recommendation: A big yes for dry skins, normal skins and matured skins. It retains the skin's elasticity as it claims. Also acts as a great moisturizer for extremely dry skins. Not a must product for oilies, yet do try it in dry winters.

Overall Rating: 4/5 

Will I repurchase?: Sure! :) In winters and springs. A single bottle lasts really long though.
