While I was on the hunt for a serum that came in a dropper bottle, (completely influenced by Instagram :p) I came across the Juicy Chemistry facial serums on Amazon.in. I bought the Organic Argan, Rose & Camellia Serum (Day Serum with Natural SPF) and the Organic Helichrysum and Rosehip (Overnight Cell-Construction Serum). They also make a – Organic Frankincense & Hemp seed (Acne Control Serum) that I’m tempted to try out later.
Since I’ve used these two oils in combination (one during the day and the other at night) it makes sense to review them together too. The price – Rs. 550 (each) is high for the quantity – 10 ml, but you only require 3 drops per use, so it’s lasted me around 3 months.

The Brand

Juicy Chemistry is a Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu) based, cosmetic brand making top quality, certified organic products. There is no need to buy high-end brands when you can get the same quality as a home-grown product and a better price.

They are, “Ecocert Certified Organic Brand wherein every single ingredient [they] use and [their] finished product is Certified Organic“,  you can’t get better than this! They are cruelty-free, which in case you’ve been following the blog, you know that I’m making a gradual switch to cruelty-free.

If you shop on their website you get redeemable rewards points and keep looking out for discounts as I just made a purchase on their website and saved Rs. 500. They also do demonstration videos for all their products on their website so there’s no confusion when it comes to application. Their products are also available on Nykaa FYI.

 

My skin type

I have dry skin, which means after showering, moisturizer is required or else my face turns white with small flakes and becomes very tight. I also have sensitive skin, so my skin react easily to foreign substances, causing to become red or itchy. I haven’t had any rashes or reactions after using these serums and my face feels more hydrated and soft than usual.

How to use the oils?

Because it’s packed with a series of essential oils, the aroma of the serum is quite strong. However, I got used to it after 3-4 uses and now I find the smell therapeutic and calming.

The formulation feel more like a light oil, rather than a water-based serum. I have dry skin, so I didn’t have any problem with the glow the serum gave me. After about a month and a half, I felt like it was getting too oily and heat-y for my face so mixed a tiny bit of aloe gel into it. This transformed it into a balm and gave me great results! Now, I switch between using it as a serum and a balm depending on what my face needs.

I bought the 10ml bottle, and the packaging is very simple – a generic glass dropper bottle with a paper wrapping around with the branding and product details.

Organic Argan, Rose & Camellia Serum (Day Serum with Natural SPF)

Net Weight: 10ml, 30 ml

The aroma is stronger but more appealing. The one main benefit of this product is that it doesn’t feel different from the night serum. I’ve always struggled to find a sunscreen that would feel like any other moisturizer and this one does the job whilst feeling uber luxurious. It’s no more a chore, but rather a pleasure for me to wear sunscreen when I go out now.

It is made with oils containing natural SPF – Red Raspberry Seed Oil and Carrot Seed oil which protect your skin from UVA/ UVB rays. It also contains Rose essential oil and moisturizing Camellia seed oil that work together to protect, moisturise and prevent against environmental aggressors that contribute to aging.

Organic Helichrysum and Rosehip (Overnight Cell-Construction Serum)

Net Weight: 10ml, 30 ml

This overnight oil has definitely helped maintain the texture of my skin. All the nights I wore this serum I felt the difference in the morning. This serum is for the person who is trying to deal with patchy and uneven skin tone. The best thing about this serum is that it really makes my skin feel hydrated and fresh, the calming aroma is a treat before going to bed.

From both the serums, I definitely will be repurchasing the Natural SPF one as I feel really good about following a sun care routine but at the same time being able to introduce a serum into my face routine.

Ingredients: Rosa Canina (rosehip) oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil*, Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Oil*, Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Boswellia carteri (Frankincense) Oil*, Helichrysum Italicum Flower Oil, Daucus carota (Carrot Seed) Oil*, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil*, Tocopherol.
