Product Review: Soultree Apricot Oil & Honey Moisturizer With Kokum Butter

Hi

I am so glad to receive a product from one of my much-appreciated brand Soultree few days ago. I could not resist using the product the moment it got delivered and here is my review on the same :)

Brand Info:

Product Description
This fragrant, non-greasy skin care lotion is a blend of vitamin-rich oil cold pressed from ripe Himalayan Apricots, organically cultivated ayurvedic herbs, and wild honey from the Sirumalai forests of South India. It is further infused with Kokum butter, known for its hydrating and regenerating properties to keep your skin naturally moisturised, supple and smooth.

Price: Rs 350 for 200 ml. Can be purchased here
Shelf Life: 30 months
Packaging:
The moisturizer comes in a cylindrical plastic bottle with black cap. The flip-open cap has small hole pierced into it to take out enough quantity. 

My experience with the product:
The Apricot Oil & Honey Moisturizer With Kokum Butter which I received is from Soultree's Amrita - Soul to Skin range. I loved the concept that they have given meaningful hindi themes to every category of the products (y)

The moisturizer is pale brown/beige in color. It has deep nutty fragrance that seems originating from real apricot oil. The fragrance settles down to a lighter tone after some time. It will not bother those who dislike stronger scents. 
I liked the consistency of the moisturizer which is slightly thicker, but it doesn't make the product tougher to penetrate the skin. It spreads easily on the skin and shows no undesired sheen on skin post application. The apricot oil is very finely absorbed by the skin & works on the deeper layers, leaving a non-greasy feel. 

The brilliant emollient formulated with apricot oil, kokum butter and honey keeps the skin hydrated for good long time and increases the re-application intervals. It relieves me a lot when I need not use it every now n then.

The brand recommends the moisturizer to be suitable for body as well as face. I have used very small quantity on my face and it caused me no issues. But oily skin won't be able to handle it. Not only does the moisturizer performs its main job of keeping the skin soft n supple, but also prevents skin damage due to its anti-oxidant and anti-ageing properties.

Not to forget, a little quantity is enough per usage. My son (who seems to be a budding junior reviewer in my team now) says "itna sa lagaya hai, to bhi lagta hai jaise bahot zayada lagaya ho" So I am expecting my bottle to last till the end of winter months, else no worries... coz I will buy another one for sure ;)

Pros:
Contains no Parabens or Silicons
Certified Organic Ayurvedic Herbs
Made from organically cultivated ayurvedic herbs
Free of Synthetic Preservatives, Colours or Fragrances
Recyclable Packaging
No Animal Testing
Nice fragrance.
Intense moisturization.

Cons:
Slightly expensive for some, but I don't mind paying some extra bucks for the excellent product.

Soultree Apricot Oil & Honey Moisturizer With Kokum Butter is a product to keep your dry skin healthy specially during cold weather. Its made with organically grown ingredients so won't have any side effects on your skin.
