Iraya Almond Nutrifying Skin Food Review

Hello beauties! Winter is almost gone but still dry skinned people are born to moisturize their skin now and then in all the seasons. Who doesn't like soft and moisturized skin? If you skip your moisturizer, all you get is lifeless, dull and unattractive skin. Dry, normal, oil, sensitive or any skin typed you're, moisturization is an important step in daily skin care routine. Today, I am reviewing  a product which claims to work on normal to dry skins and let us see how it works. The name itself is attractive, "Skin food" so I was super excited to use this product even I don't have that much dry skin. This is a product from Iraya, an ayurvedic brand. Let us move on to the product description and review now.

My Experience with this Product
I love anything natural on my skin. That too Almonds? They are my favorite skin nuts. Whenever my skin feel lifeless or tanned I just smash some almonds with milk and cover it up. An instant skin nourishing mask is done. When I came to know about this skin food, I was super excited because of the almond content. The product comes in tub packaging, which is not so preferable for me but still it is okay because a vacuum lid is inside to prevent spillage. The tub is transparent, firm and travel friendly.

   A very thick, creamy rich consistency it has, as same as cow butter. The cream has a slight peachy tint, just very slight and smells good too, even bearable for sensitive noses. Due to the thick consistency of the cream, it takes little more time to get completely absorbed by the skin. The product claims to work on normal and dry skin and so I felt this a little heavy on my normal skin. I guess it is one of the best winter pick for normal skins. Oily skins never go for it because your skin will end up in looking greasy. Do you have dry skin? Then this one is best for you anytime.

This cream doesn't make skin look much greasy, but actually my skin felt greasy a bit after application. Even though it feels heavy on my normal to oily skin, I used this as a night cream to notice the results. After two weeks of usage, my skin is noticeably soft and firmer than before. It also helped reducing some fine lines under my eyes. So, overall it is a great smooth moisturizer for dry skin types as per the claim. Aloe and sandalwood ingredients are more plus. It may be pricey for few, but worthy for the results. 40+ women will love it however even young ones can try it.

  1. Smooth, creamy and thick consistency which is easily spreadable. 
  2. Smells good. Some herbal + nutty mix it is. Even sensitive noses wont hate it. 
  3. Contains natural ingredients like Sandalwood, Aloe and Sesame.
  4. Really it acts as a great skin food for dry skins! Heals and nourishes well. Worthy try!
  5. Winter pick for normal skin types. Nourishes skin well.
  6. Softens and firms skin with regular use. Difference in fine lines is visible.
  7. Can be used as a night cream too with slight massaging.
  8. A great natural anti aging product for 40+ beauties. It actually nourishes well. 
  9. No side effects and I have experienced no breakouts too.
  10. Pack is firm and travel friendly.

  1. Not for oily skin. Do you think this as a con? Of course not because they doesn't claim (I am just mentioning)
  2. Normal skins may feel it greasy on summers.
  3. Tub packaging is not hygienic. I would love to get it in tube. 
  4. Might be little pricey for a moisturizer. But it is worthy as well.

Overall Rating: 4/5

My Recommendation: This is a must try skin food for dry skin types. It nourishes and moisturizers well however dry your skin is. The staying power is great too. Normals, get one in winters and a big no-no for oily skinned girls.

Will I Repurchase?: Of course yes! because it improves my skin softness and texture. Waiting for next winter!
