Kaya Skin Awakening Gel Super Orange Bloom Review
I have been using some Kaya Skin Clinic products for a long time now and I really find them effective for my problematic skin . I was looking for a Vitamin C product when I saw this intriguing product at their Counter . The ingredients list looked promising and since it was in gel form I thought it would work for my sensitive combination skin . I have finished off this product now , so sharing my thoughts on it in my review today

My Experience with Kaya Skin Awakening Gel Super Orange Bloom:
Kaya Skin Awakening Super Orange Bloom Gel comes in a round, slightly bulky , glass jar packaging . I am in two minds about the packaging considering how unstable Vitamin C is . It has tendency to oxidise and lose its potency on exposure to air or light . But since it has vitamins in encapsulated form , so that might prevent vitamins to get unstable . Plus The glass Jar is not so travel friendly . Some of us find it not very hygenic to dip fingers in the jar everytime to use it . I think a dark colored tube would be a better form of packaging for this kind of product .
The gel has a lightweight formula with orange colored soft vitamin beads/capsules. These dissolve easily on the skin and are not abrasive . I love the refreshing citrusy fragrance this gel has . It absorbs in the skin withing a few seconds only and does not require massaging effort . On immediate application , it gives a tingling sensation to the skin . After a few minutes that sensation settles down and the skin feels a bit tight . Initially I found it very uncomfortable and wanted to wash this off my face . But gradually I got used to it and continued using this product . This skin awakening gel leaves a slight film on the skin which adds a nice glow .
When I started using Kaya Orange bloom skin awakening gel , I was using it as my day time moisturiser but after a week I decided to use it at night instead , since it is essential to wear a sunscreen while using vitamin c in skincare . Plus , I am not very fond of using too many products during the day . So , I started using this Gel as night treatment product . On its own it is not very hydrating/moisturising so if you have normal-dry skin you would need another hydrating product on top of this .
Coming to its perforamce , I did find an improvement in my overall skin tone . Some of my acne scars/spots did lighten up a bit but it was not so effective on the darker spots . I could definitely see that it made my skin tad brighter . Another bonus was that it didnot cause any reaction /irritation or cause breakouts (which is the biggest issue with my skin) .The jar lasted me for about a month or so and considering the price point , I would think twice before re purchasing this . I would recommend it to anyone who wants to incorporate vitamins /antioxidants in their skincare regime . This would be more suitable for Oily-Combination Skin in my opnion . Normal –dry skin would need another layer of hydration over this .
