Is it really the facial oil that puts an end to all facial oils?
As beauty editors, we get bombarded with a ton of new products to review but the ones that we report are those that are hot sellers. Beautify by Amna is a brand that has made its mark in the beauty scene because of its versatile makeup products, available at affordable prices. Their 24k Gold and Rose Serum created quite the hype, and has become a customer favourite. What we are trying to figure out is if its really worth the hype!
Its a fast absorbing facial oil that can be used as a daily moisturizer or in conjunction with your makeup. Its ingredients are Rosehip Seed Oil, Rose Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil and Argan Oil. Oh, and it’s littered with specks of 24-carat gold. Beautify by Amna claims that upon applying it under your makeup, it will give you an all day luminous look.
Does it all sound too good to be true? Not to worry—we did some digging.
BEAUTIFY BY AMNA 24K GOLD AND ROSE SERUM Rs2,450 To shop, click here.
The serum is made using real 24-carat gold flakes and an organic formula devoid of any harmful chemicals, dyes, and additives. Its purely organic and if it doesn’t deliver a glowing skin, you can at least be assured that its benefiting your skin.
Cleanse and dry your face. Apply one drop of the serum on your palm. Using your fingers, apply the serum lightly on your face and massage it into the skin. Make sure to only use one drop as it is enough to moisturise your entire face. If you have dry skin in winters, then we recommend using a little more, but in the summers it might end up making your face gleam a tad bit too much.
Once you have applied it, give it a minute to soak into your skin before applying primer over it. The gold flakes will break apart and absorb into the skin, resulting in all day radiance. Beautify by Amna claims that it prevents foundation from drying out and creasing, and makes pores invisible. Finally a win for all those with large pores!
(Another way of applying it is by mixing in one drop with your full coverage matte foundation, and buffing it into the skin using a beauty blender.)
An added benefit of this serum is that you can apply it onto your lips before matte lipsticks, for plump and hydrated lips. It can also be used to revive dried creamy products such as your favourite eyeliner, concealer or brow products!
All pretty things come in little, gold bottles!
The result of it, after being massaged and blended across your face, is soft and glowy skin—pretty much the definition of dewiness—giving your entire makeup look a soft radiance.
You might end up swiping on translucent powder during the day when you notice some shine, but its a small price to pay for all-day luminescence.
The downside we found in this product was its smell. If you’re hoping to find a nice, citrus-y smell, then you’re in for disappointment. It has an unappealing, dense smell that you don’t expect in a luxury beauty product.
If you have oily skin, then we recommend maybe steering away from this product. This is more like a facial oil than a fast absorbing serum, and leaves skin a little oily.
With its multi-purpose uses, we would definitely recommend this serum for all those with dry skin yearning for a dewy makeup look every day. Since you only use one drop per application, it will definitely last you a long time too! Not bad for only Rs.2,450, eh?
