Iraya Wheatgerm Facial Massage Cream Review

Massage oils, creams are an important part of skin care and I can not stress more about the benefit of a regular 2 minute facial massage on a day to day basis. That’s the reason I always include a massage cream or gel in my CTM (rather CMTM ) routine. I loved The Nature’s Co. massage cream a lot but the huge quantity was difficult to finish in time and I had to throw up around 25% of the product when it neared the expiry date. Did not want to repeat the same again and was searching for an equally good hydrating cream for the recent dryness problem I was facing in Pune. Iraya Wheatgerm Facial Massage Cream looked perfect for my need and her I am with the review after a month’s usage of the same.

My Experience with Iraya Wheatgerm Facial Massage Cream:

Before moving on with my experience with this wheatgerm facial massage cream from Iraya I would like to let you know the benefits of wheatgerm in skin care.

  • Provides deep hydration to skin
  • Has anti ageing properties
  • Repairs skin from damage caused due to sun exposure and pollution
  • Calms and soothes skin irritation and itching
  • Lifts and tones skin
  • Helps in growth of new cells
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Works on stretch marks
I did some research and like mentioned in the key ingredients, wheatgerm indeed is a rich source of antioxidants and Vit-E. While it is too thick an oil to use directly on skin, we can mix some wheatgerm essential oil in the suitable carrier oil for our skin type and massage our skin for maximum benefit. Since I have found it in a massage cream I couldn’t have been more happy. 🙂

The massage cream comes in a classy glass packaging with a silver foil cap. It is quite small and handy in size to travel with, but I would still suggest you to keep it in and around soft fabric to avoid breakage.
The cream is light yellow in color and is very light in texture. It spreads easily on face and is extremely easy to massage on without the need to wet your hands. Gets absorbed in 2 minutes of massage and keeps skin hydrated for a good 4-5 hours.

Usually massage creams are supposed to be wiped off or washed off after use. I did try doing that while massaging with a wet hand for the first week. While my skin felt nice it did not stay moisturised for long. Then I read the instructions and noted there is no mention of rinsing it off. In fact it suggests using it after cleansing and toning. Since then I have been using it post my morning wash every morning and I do feel this works better now. I keep it on my face till my bath time that is around 3-4 hours after I wake up. So it gets more time to work on my skin. 🙂

In this one month, I have noticed some improvements in my skin due to its usage.
  • There are no dry patches visible on my cheeks now
  • Skin does not feel stretchy like it used to do
  • My skin tone is more even than it used to be a month back.
  • My skin looks healthy and has a subtle glow that was missing due to the dryness in the weather
  • The delicate skin around my eye looks better these days. (*I do not use any eye cream.)
And I feel this is more than enough I would ever ask from a massage cream. Also the consistency is such that it can be used by everybody irrespective of their skin type.
Coming to the smell, it has a faint medicinal smell that does not bother me at all.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5
My Recommendation:
Iraya Wheatgerm facial Massage Cream is a wonderful product with some major benefits to skin that I would not have expected from a massage cream otherwise. It is extremely easy to massage on skin gently without any dragging or pulling. It also heals and repairs dry patches on skin really well without being greasy. Considering the benefits of wheatgerm, orange, sesame oil and the results it has shown on my skin, I would highly recommend this as a winter care product.
